Opening odds

Jump to section Show

Opening odds are the first odds issued by a bookmaker for an event - this is often 10 days before the event is scheduled to start.

Opening odds are set by a bookmaker's experts using their subjective opinions, statistical information and other information available at the time such as recent form and injuries. The opposite of this is closing line odds. Opening odds are based on the bookmakers opinions and statistics whereas the closing line odds reflect the market's sentiment.
