Implied probability is a fancy way of saying the likelihood of something happening based on the odds given by a bookmaker. It's like turning those odds into a percentage to see how likely they think a bet is to win. This helps you figure out if a bet is worth it or not. If you think there's a better chance of winning than what the implied probability suggests, then that bet might be a good deal.
