Hello guys.
I noticed that american authors who write about sport betting generally make use of a different system of rating than William Hill or Bet365 for example.
What does it mean that a sport event pays, let's say, 13-5? How can you convert this rating in decimals, such as 2.15 or 1.80?

Possibly a stupid question. Thanks in advance.

You can google - Europe and American odds converter - then click on image in the google search.
Then you will find different charts explain the difference.
You can also google and use programs where you put in the American odds and the converter will show the Europe odds.

Cheers

Fractional Odds
(Also known as Traditional or British)
Used mainly in the UK and in international horse racing. Becoming less popular online.Tell you the amount of profit relative to your stake if you win your bets.For example, if you bet £10 at odds of 3/1, you receive £30 profit if you win.

Decimal Odds
(Also known as European)Common around the world but especially in Europe. Standard on betting exchanges such as Betfair.Convey the total amount you will receive if you win, including the return of your stake.For example, if you bet £10 at odds of 3.75, you will receive £37.50 in total if you win.

Moneyline Odds
(Also known as American)Used by most US bookmakers.Based on a straight single bet (on a single outcome, without a points spread)If the moneyline is positive, the amount quoted is the amount you would win on a \$100 bet.If it is negative, the amount quoted is what you would need to bet to win \$100.
