Contrasts and similarities between odds betting and index betting are described. When index bets are offered as performance indices, conditions are found under which a direct comparison with conventional odds bets can be made. In this case, the ratio of the sum of the widths of all the spreads to twice the difference between the performance indices for being first and last corresponds to the bookmakers' win margin. Examples illustrate the results.
