What does 9/4 odds payout?

What is 9/4 Each Way?

An each way bet at 9/4 is split into two parts: a ‘win’ bet and a ‘place’ bet.

Win Part

  • As with a straight win bet, you get 9 times your stake for every 4 units bet if your selection wins.

Place Part

This pays out if your selection places (usually top 2-4 positions). The place odds are typically a fraction of the win odds.

For example, at 1/4 place terms, the place odds become 9/16 (9/4 divided by 4).
