Question by : How do I calculate Alternate Runlines’ decimal odds?
For example, tonight’s game between the Rangers and the Yankees,
the Primary Runlines are:
Texas Rangers -1.5 2.560
New York Yankees +1.5 1.588
While the Alternate Runlines are:
Texas Rangers +1.5 1.457
New York Yankees -1.5 2.990
I understand the actual runlines are just reversed but how do I calculate the decimal odds?
Sorry, I worded the question poorly.
I meant how do Sportsbooks calculate alternate runlines.

What do you mean by calculate the decimal odds? You have the deciaml odds listed in your question. 1.457 is the deciaml odd for Texas +1.5 runs. So if you bet 0 on Texas +1.5 runs at 1.457 it would return 5.70 for a profit of .70.
