Changing pivot table values from % of row total to implied odds

I have a pivot table setup as below, which currently shows, in each football season, how many times a certain number of cards has been awarded in a football match. The results are presented as a percentage of the row total. I want to change this so they are presented as the implied odds of each outcome occurring. To do this, the calculation required is 1/"percentage value". However, how do I actually get the pivot table to display this?

For example, if we take the 2018/19 season, the implied odds of 6 cards being awarded in the game = 1/.13.16 = 7.60

I have a workaround where in a cell outside the pivot table, I just have a formula =1/"cell value" = 7.60. However, is there a way of presenting the same value in the pivot table?

Hi,
Pivot table Values allows you to display sum, count, max, min, variance, average... but not text.
Your result here will be treated as a text.
You could have opted to format as a fraction but it seems that is not what you required.
