8/13 = 61.5p profit per 1 staked
13/20 = 65p

13/20 is the best odd. :agree:

If you ever want to compare 2 odds... Take the 1st number and divide it by the 2nd.

8 divided by 13 = 0.615 (always rounded up) = 62p profit
13 divided by 20 = 0.65 = 65p profit

:nerd:

Although I agree with you, some people may disagree with you regarding the best odds part. 13/20 is the best in terms of return, however some people look at the best odds being the one that is most likely.

Just thought I would add that, as my definition of the best odds were different to my dads when I put a bet on for him, he was not happy!

Most bookie sites will let you display odds as decimals which makes it easier, this facility also available on Oddschecker.

You can also work out the percentage probability. An example...

1. 12/1 is the same as 12 divided by 1. 12 divided by 1 is 12
2. add 1 to the answer above; in this case 12 add 1
3. divide the answer from 2 above (13) by 100. In this example the answer is 7.692% (using 3 decimal points to maintain accuracy)

To calculate percentages you actually need to divide 100 by the decimal odds (13 in your example), not the other way around.
