Odds mainly depicts two things in sports betting. One, it is used to calculate how much could be won when a bet is placed. Anytime you make a wager, you are offered odds by the bookmakers which can sometimes (not all) change depending on some factors. These odds have the say on the payout on your winning bets. Two, odds can show the likelihood of an event occurring. The likelier the outcome, the lesser the odd and vice versa. You would win more if you wager on less likely events and winless when you bet on more likely events.
