How to calculate parlay odds when all single bets you place win

In the event that all the bets you place in the bet are single and all wins, you can calculate the amount of your bet you will win according to the formula:

Odds = Odds 1 x Odds 2 x Odds 3 x … x Odds n

Example: There are 3 odds for Chelsea; MU and Liverpool are equivalent to three odds of 2.16; 2.09 and 1.99 then your skew ratio will be 2.16 x 2.09 x 1.99 = 8.9837. If you bet $10 for one unit, you will receive a total of $89.837.

How to calculate the odds in the case of a draw / half win / half loss

If in the event of a tie, half win or half loss, the way to calculate the odds ratio will be more complicated. Especially when you bet on Asian or Over Under. Specifically:

  • If there is a tie or cancellation: The odds will be calculated as 1
  • If a half win occurs: Replace with [1 + (odds ratio – 1) / 2]
  • If a half-loss occurs: The odds are replaced by 1/2. So the correct formula for these cases would be: Odds = Odds to win x (1 + (Half of odds -1) / 2) x 1/2 (if the bet loses half) x 1 (if the bet is a draw) …]

Specific example: In case you place a 3 parlay bet with odds like:

  • Real Madrid 1 – 0 Fulham/Fulham -0.75 1.90/ Half won;
  • Barcelona 1 – 1 Liverpool / +2.25 1.80/ Half lost;
  • Stoke 0 – 0 Manchester United/ Stoke +0.5 1.95/ Win.

With the result as above, the specific parlay odds you will get is: [1 + (1.90 – 1) / 2] x 1/2 x 1.95 = 1.4137. If you had previously bet $100 per unit, you would have received a total of $141.37.
