Here's an odds converter:
I'm keeping it strictly European for now

Yes, the option is always there. Typically the each way bet will be 1/4 at places 1-5, or 1/5 at places 1-8. If the horse wins you get the EW win on top of the outright winner payout. This week I have 1/5 1-8.

For example: I'm in for 300 this week
50 ew on Wiesberger / Wallace (200)
25 ew on Sabbatini / Macintyre (100)

1,320 win on Wallace outright and 230 return on top 8
2,080 win on a Wiesberger outright and 340 return on top 8
1,550 win on Macintyre outright and 255 return on top 8
1,850 win on Sabbatini outright and 305 return on top 8

This is what a typical week of betting would look like for me, and of course I'd have the opportunity to hedge / lay on Sundays to take profit.
