Basically decimals is just your return if you put a quid on. so a quid on at 3.25 returns £3.25. In terms of fractionals its a £2.25 return from a quid sooo 9/4?

Basically, with decimal odds it gives you an exact figure of your returns. So if the odds are 3.25 and you stake £10, it's a simple sum of 3.25 x 10.

However, to convert this to fractional odds which are representative of a pure figure, it would be 9/4.

This is because 9/4 is 2.25, but you also get your stake back, so you add an integer of 1 which represents the value of your stake (it's always 1).

So 9/4 odds equal on screen odds of 3.25, but your profit equates to 2.25 x your stake.

3.75 = 11/4 and so on.

This is probably not the best way of describing it, but I hope this helps :L

The Angels are underpriced tonight, they really should beat the dodgers and they're 13/10. As for my over unders:

Miami @ tampa bay O7.5
Yankees @ Mets O6.5
Pitt @ detroit U9
Could you explain the reasoning behind this? The under looks nailed on to me or am I missing something. Also re the LA game, Blanton is pitching (1-7, 6.19 ERA) against Ryu (5-2, 3.30 ERA) that's a pitching mismatch if ever I saw one. Dodgers RL has been on and off my bet slip all day.

£5 @ 3.25 returns £16.25 I think, so around 3/1? I'm not good with fractions.

Did you back Pella or Delbonis?

Yeah Delbonis won 3-1. Wasn't expecting such a good win, especially after losing the first set. Really hope Pella wins. Love that guy.

Currently on Zeballos to win set 1. 4-2 up in the tie breaker.

Kuroda took a tanking in his last outing. Admittedly the mets don't have the same attack as the Orioles but I still anticipate them scoring 3 runs over the 9 against kuroda and the yankees pen. As for Harvey he's been letting a little slip week after week. People are starting to get an eye for him now. Despite injuries they Yankees are somewhat hitting well as well and the mets pen stinks so if they get harvey out the game i see them scoring 4-5 runs. Even if they score 3 and the mets score 3 overtime takes it over.

As for the Angels, its going to be a shootout. I mean it would be acceptable to take the over on the run line instead but over the distance, with a pen thats finding a bit of form I love the angels at a price like this today. Trout is just a run machine, Trumbo, Pujols, Hamilton are all hitting as well. They put up 7+ runs tonight, I don't see the dodgers keeping up.

For some reason I overlook the Jays and the Braves, talk about decimating a run line o.O

Baseball teams play in series', so they play the same team 2/3/4 times in a row. These are usually all back to back then they have an 'off day' occasionally in between where they dont play.

Pella... got to love the guy! struggling so bad to start, yet now winning! -

You may yet save my day!

(not that its been that bad.. but im down a little at the moment thanks to Mayer loosing to Istomin... should have been an easy win, but he was injured and had to retire - feels quite hard done by.. Id love it if they voided the result if the player retires.. as my other 4 games of that Acc, came in.. )

So Mayer was a loss and not a void then?
