Odds are calculated by taking the total number of desired results to the total number of possibilities. If you roll a six sided die, your chances of rolling a 1 are 1 in 6. One because there is there is one (1) on the die, and six total sides (possibilities).

To calculate odds against, you divide the probability of failure by the probability of success. For example, suppose you want to find the odds choosing the correct number 1 to 5. The probability of failure is 4/5 and the probability of success is 1/5. So, 4/5 divided by 1/5 is 4/1 or "4 to 1"
