# What are ordinar in the bets?

09.07.2021

The ordinar - a single bet on any outcome of an event in a bookmaker's office.

It can be made on any sports, events and markets - match outcomes, handicap, total, statistics of teams and individual players. Combined outcomes within the same event, for example, the bet “win 1 half + match” for a single odds is also equated to ordinar.

The odds of a single also does not matter and can be anything. You can place a single on the super probable variant for the odds of 1.20. And you can make a risky single bet at 15.00 odds, for example, on overtime in basketball. The main thing is that the chosen outcome in the bet was the only one.

The opposite of a single - "express" - a type of bet, in which two or more outcomes are involved in one bet, and different sporting events. You can read more about express trains in our other material. There is also the concept of "express system", we also have a separate article about it.

## How ordinars are calculated

They are calculated very simply - when the outcome of the event on which the bet was made, you will receive a win with the appropriate odds. A couple of examples:

Event: the match between Denmark and Wales in the ⅛ final of Euro 2020 football. A bet on the victory of Denmark for the odds of 1.85 per 1,000 rubles. She will win, and the player will receive a prize of 1,850 rubles (1,000 x 1.85) if the Danes win in regular time. If a draw or a victory for Wales is fixed, the player will lose the bet amount of 1,000 rubles.

Event: the match Italy - Austria at the same Euro 2020 football. Single bet that Austria will score a goal in the match. The odds are 1.97, the bet amount is 5,000 rubles. As soon as Austria scores any goal (even from a penalty spot, even an Italians' own goal) in the regular time of the match, the single bet (single) will win.

The player will receive a winnings of 9,850 rubles (5,000 x 1.97), and immediately after goals without waiting for the end of the match. After all, the desired result has already been achieved in terms of the outcome, and for the bet it does not matter how this event ends. If Austria fails to score in regular time, the bet (5,000 rubles) will lose.

## Returning the ordinar

In some cases, the bookmaker can calculate your ordinar as a return, that is, with a coefficient of 1.0. Then, the amount of the bet on which you made a bet will simply be returned to your gaming account.

Main reasons for return:

1. A bet on an outcome that implies a return. For example, a bet on “total over 2 goals” and the result is exactly two goals per match will bring a refund. Similarly, when betting on H1 (-1), if the first team wins by exactly one ball, the stake will be refunded.
2. The match was canceled, stopped or interrupted with an indefinite replay period. This often happens in tennis, when athletes are withdrawn from an event for personal reasons or due to injury. Also, the match may be interrupted due to unfavorable weather conditions or the behavior of fans.
3. Bookmakers made a mistake in the line. You will rarely see this in decent bookmakers, but small offices periodically make such mistakes. For example, they put inverse odds on the favorite and the outsider, or write “20.00” instead of “2.00”. Bets on such errors will be settled as a refund.

## What is the best bet: ordinar bets or express bets?

Ordinars are a reliable and effective type of bet and are used by most professional bettors. The likelihood of losing your bankroll is much lower than if you bet on multiples and multiples. Also, you do not overpay for the margin (bookmaker's commission), the distance is much easier to estimate, it is easier to calculate the profit from your game and the expected profitability.

The only drawbacks are the slow growth of the bankroll and the frequent stuck on the plateau - periods when the bank neither increases nor decreases for a long time. Betting on express and express systems can break up the bank much faster, but it takes a lot of luck. Playing singles at a distance requires a clear system and a decent bankroll. But these are, rather, not even disadvantages, but the costs of proper academic betting.
