Tips on European Price Betting

European Price Betting is similar to Money Line Betting. These are usually displayed in decimal format and use two formulas to calculate payouts.

European Prices above 1.0
(Wager Amount) x (European Price) = Total Payout

European Prices below 1.0
(Wager Amount) x (European Price) + Wager Amount = Total Payout

For example, the bettor bets $100 on Manchester City 2.40 to beat Arsenal 0.60. If Manchester City wins, he wins $240. His friend bets $100 on Arsenal. If Arsenal wins, his friend wins $160. The following table displays the results of four different winning European Price bets.

WinnerBet AmountEuropean PricePayout

Manchester City$202.40$48
Manchester City$1002.40$240
Arsenal$200.60$32
Arsenal$1000.60$160


Conversion

Here is the conversion formula for European Prices.

Use this formula if the Money Line has a minus sign "-".

European Price = (100 / (Money Line * -1)) + 1

Use this formula if the Money Line has a plus sign "+".

European Price = (Money Line / 100) + 1

The following table displays conversions of Money Lines to European Prices.

Money LineEuropean PricePayout per $100 Bet (+ bet amt)
+1402.40$240
-200150$150
+1602.60$260

Note: European Prices do not always convert evenly into Money Lines since Money Lines are based on whole numbers.
