Odds

Definition: The likelihood of an outcome occurring, stated in number form. The "straight up" outcome is typically the basis of the wager, without regard to a point spread. Odds are often stated as a money line.
 
Example: Jackson got good odds at a -500 money line on Mike Tyson to win the fight; but he likes his 10 to 1 odds on the Pats to win the Super Bowl even better.
