What do 1/3 Odds Mean?

Odds are used in betting to represent the probability of an event to occur. When you see 1/3 odds, it means that the event is likely to happen. In other words, for every 3 attempts, the event is expected to occur once.

To understand this better, let’s take some examples with different amounts. If you bet £1 at 1/3 odds, you will win £1/3, plus your original stake, totalling £1.33.

A £5 bet will yield £5/3 (£1.67) in profit, making a total payout of £6.67. A £10 bet would win £10/3 (£3.33), totalling £13.33. A £25 bet would win £25/3 (£8.33), totalling £33.33. A £50 bet would win £50/3 (£16.67), totalling £66.67.

Lastly, a £100 bet would win £100/3 (£33.33), totalling £133.33.

What do 1/3 Odds Payout?

The payout for 1/3 odds means you win one third of your stake plus your original stake back. For instance, if you bet £10, your payout will be £3.33 plus your original £10, totalling £13.33.

What does 1/3 Odds Each Way Mean? Definition and Examples

An each way bet is essentially two bets in one – a bet for a win, and a bet for a place (usually second or third). If you place a £1 each way bet at 1/3 odds, you are actually placing £1 on the win and £1 on the place, totalling £2.

If your selection wins, you get both parts of the bet. If your selection only places, you lose the win part of the bet but get 1/3 of the place part of the bet.

For example, a £5 each way bet at 1/3 odds would total £10 (£5 for win, £5 for place)

. If the selection wins, you would get £1.67 for the win and £1.67 for the place, totalling £3.33 plus your original £10, making a total of £13.33.

The same calculations apply for £10, £25, £50, and £100 each way bets.

What is 1/3 Odds as a Decimal?

Odds can also be represented as decimals. 1/3 odds as a decimal is 1.33. This is calculated by adding 1 to the fraction (1/3 + 1 = 1.33). This is also the amount you would win for every £1 you bet, plus your original stake.
