European Prices Bet is similar to Money Line Bet. These are usually displayed in decimal format and use two formulas to calculate payouts.

European Prices above 1.0
(Wager Amount) x (European Price) = Total Payout

European Prices below 1.0
(Wager Amount) x (European Price) + Wager Amount = Total Payout

For example, the bettor bets $100 on Manchester City 2.40 to beat Arsenal 0.60. If Manchester City wins, he wins $240. His friend bets $100 on Arsenal. If Arsenal wins, his friend wins $160. The following table displays the results of four different winning European Price bets.

Here is the conversion formula for European Prices.

Use this formula if the Money Line has a minus sign "-".

European Price = (100 / (Money Line * -1)) + 1

Use this formula if the Money Line has a plus sign "+".

European Price = (Money Line / 100) + 1

The following table displays conversions of Money Lines to European Prices.
