If you are into sports betting, you may have seen different types of odds formats. One of the most common ones is American or moneyline odds, which are used mainly in North America. American odds show how much you need to bet or win for every \$100 staked or won. They can be positive or negative depending on whether the outcome is favored or not. For example, American odds of +200 mean that you will win \$200 for every \$100 staked, while American odds of -200 mean that you need to stake \$200 to win \$100.

However, some bettors may prefer to use fractional odds, which are more popular in the UK and Ireland. Fractional odds show the ratio of your potential profit to your stake, such as 2/1 or 11/4. They can help you understand how much you stand to gain relative to your risk.

But how do you convert American odds to fractional odds, or vice versa? You may need to do this if you want to compare different betting options or use a different odds format than the one offered by your bookmaker. Fortunately, there is an easy way to do this using a calculator or a formula.

To convert American odds to fractional odds, you need to use extra formulas depending on whether the American odds are positive or negative. If the American odds are positive, you need to divide them by 100 and then simplify the fraction. For example, if the American odds are +200, you need to divide 200 by 100 and then simplify the fraction, which gives you 2/1 as the fractional odds. If the American odds are negative, you need to divide -100 by them and then simplify the fraction. For example, if the American odds are -200, you need to divide -100 by -200 and then simplify the fraction, which gives you 1/2 as the fractional odds.
