I do NOT gamble but to earn pocket money used to work at the race course.

odds/against: you expect that possibility NOT to take place

eg the odds against are5:3 means that if the person placing the bet wins he win 5 rs for every 3 rs he bets.

odds in favour means that we expect the event will not to occur. I

ex we bet on an outsider 20:1 and place a bet of Rs 500.that means that if that horse wins for your Rs 500 you get 500*20=10,000

For a favourite odds are 2:1,3:1
