Here are the odds just after the Madagascar Leg:

The Chos are losing ground while Alabama continues to climb.

Also, Tyler & James have lost their "less than one" odds (whatever that meant).

I found this useful ........... :-[

How do you read betting odds? Example: Manchester United to win the League - 2/3?

Reading odds is fairly straightforward if you read them as follows:

the figure on the RIGHT is how much you bet
the figure on the LEFT is how much you win

So, using your example, if you bet 3 you win 2. All winning bets also refund your original stake, so you end up with 5.

At its simplest, you have an even money bet, this is a fifty-fity like a coin toss. This is expressed as 1/1, so if you win you get exactly what you bet, plus your stake, so you double your money.

Bets where the figure on the left is larger are called "odds against". For example, odds of 3/1 (read as "three to one") mean that the bookmaker considers it 3 times more likely that you will lose than win.

Bets where the figure on the right is larger are called "odds on". For example, odds of 1/3 (NB read as "three to one on", not "one to three") mean that the bookmaker considers it 3 times more likely that you will win than lose.

I think I want to bet! Doesn't that mean that the odds are better for D/K than for the Bama's?

They need to read this forum!!

:yaya:   
Like someone said above...the Hippies win last season was the best ever for me, most satisfying ending ever, so this season I don't care either way who wins. I don't gamble so have nothing to lose, so what I heard was that T/J won right after it finished filming so in my mind they won from the get go and can't picture it ending any other way.

Can't win any money on T/J with those kind of odds.

I think the way it works is you get your bet $ back plus that number times it when you win.

So if you bet $10 on T&J you would come out $5 ahead when/if they win.

Oh what do you know?!  Bodog pays up!   :jumpy:

Looks like I should just keep the account open with All Stars coming on in a few months.   :cmas32:

Thanks for the tip Puddin!  ie the start of this thread.  So, I'm now a doner.  :cmas20
