Short odds is a betting term used to discuss an outcome that is likely to occur. It is often used in reference to a team or player that are highly favored to win their given match. Betting markets with long odds are frequently referenced using American odds or decimal odds.

A wager with short odds is expected to win more often than one with long odds, however the payout will be smaller relative to the initial risk amount.
