On Bovada I bet $221 on a horse and the odds were 12/1…the horse won. They only paid me $266…how is this possible? Shouldn’t I get paid out like $2652

On Bovada I bet $221 on a horse and the odds were 12/1…they paid me $266…how is this possible?

I made two $25 across the board bets on the Preakness – rombauer at 12-1 came in first (my ticket bet was $75 and my other horse at same bet showed can you give me an idea of win

Hi , I bet on Medina Spirit to win place and show, I bet $100 she won what did I win

I placed a bet on a horse, $10 win, $10 place, and $10 show. His odds were 5-1. He showed. Payout for show was $5.20. What’s my payout? I’m thinking $26.

I bet $10 on Medina Spirit (12-1) to win the Kentucky Derby. How much did I win?

5/1/21

If a race horses is to win at the KY Derby, and the odds on this horse are 9/5, and you bet $100.00 to win, how much would you totally make if this race horse won?

Thank you in helping me.

Steve,

If you bet $25.00 to win on a horse that’s going off at 1/9 your total payout would be $27.50 ($25.00 base wager + $2.50 profit).

Hope that helps.

Kyle Kazak

i bet 25.00 to win on a horse 1/9

pay out was 2.20

how much do i win

Hi, I bet $5 across the board for tiz the law at the KY Derby. With him getting place and show, at $3.40 and $3.20, what will I get back from my $5 wager? Thank you!

Hi Scott,

If you placed a $5.00 show wager on both Tiz The Law and Authentic for a total bet of $10.00, you should receive back a total of $20.50 (with a profit of $10.50). Keep in mind the payouts are based on a $2.00 wager, not a $1.00 wager.

Hope that helps.

Sincerely,

Kyle Kazak

In the Kentucky Derby… Authentic went off at 8:1 the board says he paid $18.80 $6 and $5…Tiz the Law went off at 4:5 the board says he paid $3.40 and $3.20… how much would I win total if I placed a $5 bet to show on both horses?? Thank you for your help!!

Win. Place Show

Authentic. 8:1 18.80. 6.00 5.00

Tiz the Law. 4:5 3.40. 3.20

How much would I win total if i bet $5 to show on Authentic and $5 to Show on Tis the Law?

I thought I would win $41 but my bet on TwinSpires.com says I won $20.50!!

Monique,

The answer to your questions would depend on the odds the horse you are betting goes off at. I’ve provided you with examples below of four (4) hypothetical wagers that each generate a $500 profit:

I hope that helps.

I am just getting into horse betting. How much money would I have to bet on a horse to win 500.

Jerry,

You’d have to give me some more information to figure out exactly what you would have won. The win bet can be calculated pretty easily but the place and show bet payouts would depend heavily on the way the money was distributed in each pool respectively.

i put 20 across the board on max today ,he showed at 5.20 how much did i win

Hi Lucky,

Since the win bet payout table is just for win bets, estimating the place payout is a bit tougher. In your specific instance, a $2.00 place wager on Dr. Post paid out $5.80 so for a $10.00 place wager on Dr. Post would pay out a total of $29.00. ($19.00 profit + $10.00 base wager).

I hope that helps answer your question.

Sincerely,

Kyle Kazak

Kyle, Belmont: I bet $10 on Dr. Post to Place . I think he went off at 7/1. What should be my winnings? Thanks!

Eduvijes,

If a horse is going off at 15/1 odds and you place a $10.00 win wager the total payout would be $160.00 with $150.00 of that being profit and $10.00 being your base wager. I hope that helps.

Sincerely,

Kyle Kazak

15 odds at 10.00 wager that are winnings

Doug,

If you bet $5 at 6 to 1 odds your total payout would be $35, of which $30 would be profit and the $5 would be the base wager.

I hope that helps.

Kyle

What’s the profit if you bet $5 at 6 to1

Vincent,

To win $150 from a horse going off at 3/1 odds you would need to place a win bet of $50.00. You will receive back a total of $200.00 ($150.00 profit and your $50.00 base wager).

I hope that helps answer your question.

Kyle Kazak

If a horse is going off at 3-1 and I want to place acWin bet to win $150, how much would I wager?

Hi Gilbert,

Thanks for the comment. Unfortunately, the win bet payout table you saw was specifically for horse racing.

Regarding the Super Bowl odds, which you can find here operate a little differently.

Take a look at this article titled How NFL Betting Lines Work. It explains football wagering a lot better than I could.

A word to the wise, a win bet in horse racing has the upside of paying a lot more than a close NFL game does.

I hope that helps.

Kyle Kazak

Hello Kyle, I am still not clear on the odds betting. The odds for the Super Bowl 2020 is -1.5 for the Chiefs at a Casino here in Albuquerque. How much will I win with a $200.00 wager? Thank you for your time.

The answer depends on what the horse’s odds are. Here are a few examples.

Example 1:If the horse’s odds were going off at 2/1 your payout would be roughly $60,000 ($40,000 profit + $20,000 base wager).Example 2:If the horse’s odds were going off at 10/1 your payout would be roughly $220,000 ($200,000 profit + $20,000 base wager).Example 3:If the horse’s odds were going off at 60/1 your payout would be roughly $1,220,000 ($1,200,000 profit + $20,000 base wager).I hope that helps.

Sincerely,

Kyle Kazak
