If you are also like the person above looking for somebody to teach you sport betting, then after going through this blog post, you should be ready to place your first winning bet. As a beginner to the Sport betting, there are some terminologies you need to be familiar with. The most important of them all is the odds. The odds determines most of the outcomes on the sport betting sites and having a good understanding of it will really help you to have more probability of winnings on your bets.

Also even though sport betting is stress free and highly lucrative, you should never regard betting as a means of generating a steady, regular monthly income. It simply isn’t like that. Betting should only be considered more like owning shares – there will be periods when  you lose and there are other periods when you record gains. Your goal should be that your long-term performance should be profitable and you should only ever bet with funds that you are prepared to lose entirely.

What is Odds in Betting?

Odds tells you how likely an event will occur and it determines how much you will earn when you win a bet. So without odds there will be no betting. i.e it tells you the likely hood of  Team A  winning a match again Team B.

Odds  = 1 / Probability. 

There are different odds types, such as Europen decimal odds, American odds and fractional odds.
But in Nigeria the most popular way of showing odds are as decimals.

I know you can’t wait to see how to make money from sport betting in Nigeria but lets see how odds works in football with an example.

Asumming You see this kind of odds on Nairabet for a 1×2 football match you are about to place a bet on.
For Fc Crotone  Vs Genoa FC
The odd that Fc Crotone wins at home win  is 3.05  (1)
The odd that Fc Crotone draws with Genoa Fc is 3.15 (X)
The odd that Genoa Fc wins Away is 2.45 (2)

Once you have the odds in decimal like that, you might want to convert to percentage to understand
exactly the probabilty of each of the outcomes of the match.

The probability that  Fc Crotone will win at home with odd of 3.05

= 1/3.05 * 100%  = 0.32 *100%  =  32%

The probability that  Fc Crotone draws with Genoa Fc with odds of  3.15

= 1/3.15 * 100 = 0.31 *100% = 31%

The probability that   Genoa Fc wins Away is with  odds of  2.45

= 1/2.45 * 100 = 0.40 *100% =  40%

So the higher your odds, the less likely the event will occur and if it occurs, the higher the amount you will win on such bet.

Before delving into the strategies on how to make money from sport betting in Nigeria, Let see how much you can make from playing the 1×2 bet above on Niarabet.

Since you already know sport betting odds and what they represent, you can then place a bet a know how much you will earn when you win.

When you place bet on Nairabet that Fc Crotone will win and stake N1,000. The odd is 3.05, after the match, if it happens that the Fc Crotone wins, then you will earn N1,000 * 3.05 = N3,050. But when you deduct your stake from it, it will leave you with a profit of  N2,050.
i.e N3,050 – N1,000  =  N2,050.

You  are not limited to 1×2 bets to make money from sport betting in Nigeria. There are also Handicap Bets & Totals bet. These are the most common ones.
