Odds, 1:7 (one to seven)

Explanation:
Usually in the US at least we express horse-racing odds by saying "X to Y", not "X in Y" (although the latter is the usual grammar for probability expressions in mathematics). There may be different conventions in British English that I am not aware of.

"下注示例 - 即日賠率： 選擇 Jade Tiger

£10 Jade Tiger的冠軍投注賠率是 25/1 = £260 包括下注金額
£10 Jade Tiger的名次投注賠率是 25/5 = £60 包括下注金額

( the above is from the second site below)
"Formally odds are the ratio of the potential winnings on a bet to the wager. So if you bet \$20 on a winning horse at odds of exactly 3 to 1 (often written as 3-1), you get back your \$20 plus winnings of 3 times \$20, or \$60. That's a total of \$80."
(from the first site cited below)
So the odds cited in this question would be 1 to 7, meaning you bet \$7 and you would receive 1/7 + 7 if you win (I think....????)
