Sports Betting Odds
Sports betting odds come in three format options; decimal, fractional and American. At Unibet we display the fractional odds but these can be changed to your preference from the top left of your screen or at the bottom when you’re in a particular sport
Odds will be presented as follows:
All these odds are describing the same end result, that is, if you place a bet of £1, you will potentially have returned £3.25. Most punters opt for the decimal option as it’s pretty straightforward. We’ll delve a little deeper into the technicalities on the Odds Explained page.

Football is the most popular sport to bet on at Unibet and we offer hundreds of different bets on football because of the endless possibilities of the game. Tennis is another favourite among our players, especially when it comes to Grand Slams, where all the tennis giants compete to go down in history.
