Odds (Live)
The live odds give an estimation of the chances of winning a horse, i.e an estimation of his winning Win payout. The more a horse is played, the lower will be the ratio. Example: A live odd at 4 means that if you place a Win bet, you will win 4 times your initial stake. Selecting a favourite helps to maximize their chances of winning but the potential of winning is low. However selecting an outsider mean more risks but more chance for high winnings.
