#7What are the odds of 1 of 4 at 17 hitting 21 in a row? And the way I look at it, the leaders are starting now. 4 winners in a row is all that is needed to get that money. A streak of 4. What are the odds of 1 out of 4 hitting 4 in a row? |

What are the odds of 1 out of 4 hitting 4 in a row? The odds of hitting 4 in a row would be 16 to 1. The formulas for these are simple. For 4 in a row, it's 2 to the 4th power, or 2x2x2x2=16. 5 in a row would be 2 to the 5th power, and so on and so on. |

The 50/50 prop you're talking about is based on a STRAIGHT UP win/lose outcome. It's just an understanding of basic odds and probability. That's why I don't bet football parlay cards. On a 5 team parlay, the card pay out 20 to 1, when the true odds of hitting is actually 32 to 1. That means that the house has a 37.5% ADVANTAGE over the player. The football analogy was just an example of what the concept of "true odds" really are. There are so many different variables when picking a side, both positive and negative, that they'll virtually cancel each other out, so this is pretty much the standard way that the odds are figured out. |
