How to Wager Futures Bets
Bettors place a wager on a team that they predict will win a match that takes place in the future. A future bet is a huge gamble because bets are placed right at the beginning of the season and sportsbooks adjust the odds throughout the season. US gamblers who wish to bet a future match will receive fixed odds when they place their bet. Whatever amount is wagered is tied up until there is a result. Future odds are generally updated weekly and wagers can be bet all through the season up to a certain period.

Calculating your Wins on a Future’s Bet
Figuring how much you will win on a successful futures bet is easy especially with fractional odds. If your preferred bookie uses decimal odds you are given the option to get your odds in a format that is easy to understand for you. For example, if the odds of the Green Bay Packers set odds for winning a match are 5/1 to win the Superbowl and you have wagered $100. Divide the fractional odds and multiply by your stake. Then multiply the odds and by the amount wagered. E.g.
(5 ÷ 1 x 100) = 500
Your resulting profit is $500 but you would collect $600, because you get your original $100 wager amount back.
Future bets take about 6 months to yield any results and are a bit difficult to predict, so be prudent about how much and how you bet.
