Odds Payout Chart

Odds payout chart based on a $2 horse racing win bet.


Because most race tracks have a $2 minimum bet, the handy chart shown above depicts the payouts for a $2 win bet at various odds. Be aware that your actual payoff may differ from this chart as the odds as they are last reported before the start of the race are rounded-off, so 2-1 odds on the toteboard may actually be 1.9-1 or 2.2-1. This rounding is called breakage. Payouts use the actual odds and are rounded down to the nearest nickle or dime depending on the rules at that particular track.

The odds reported in HorsePlayUsa.com’s Quick Pick tips are the morning line odds and will change as bets are placed. Exact payouts will be determined by the odds that closed as the race started.

WIN – - You win if your horse finishes first. (On average over 30% of favorites win.)
PLACE – - You win if your horse finishes first or second. (On average over 45% of favorites win or place.)
SHOW – - You win if your horse finishes first, second or third. (On average over 60% of favorites win, place or show.)
WIN/PLACE/SHOW – - An equal amount bet “across the board” to win and place and show. For example, $2 across the board, or $2 win and place and show.
