#1I used odds from lotto betting, since I can clearly understand (and calculate) what the chances are of winning a certain lotto bet. For exampe, for the case of decimal odds (i like them better for computing purposes only): when the projection is 100% win odds are 1 at 50% the odds are 1,961 at 14,18% the odds are 6,5 at 12,36% the odds are 7,5 at 2,56% the odds are 36 at 1,69% the odds are 54 from the above data point I have derived the formula: ODDS (decimal) = 89,642 * (winning progection)^(-0,979) This way I believe that ODDS +110 or 2,1 (decimal) means a winning projection of 46,3% (if we use the above formula). This formula is as acurate as the data I used... Has anyone derived something similar? please comment. To go a bit further, if we let say trust accuscore projections ( i do not), using the above formula win can estimate what the best odds would be for let say betting on DET or LA in today's NHL game. DET is 45% (which translates to 2,14 decimal odds, while pinnacle gives 2,16) and LA is 55% (which translates to 1,81 decimal odds, while pinnacle gives only 1,77). |
