Struggling to see the o/round percentages. Betfair must have it next to the prices somewhere.

I know have just discovered these it's on total,points and handicaps with basketball.  Basically can set your own handicap or points market and trade on that but surely liquidity will be low?  !! It's a trial apparently is it on other sport other than basketball?

Seems to be on all the NFL games too.

but its also an ugly monstrosity

500+ rows, 99% of which will see no betting at all once there are games going on simultaneously on Sunday.

It's absolutely horrendous.
How does this even get past the trial stage
'let's take an already illiquid market and make it 10 times harder to get a bet on'
'yeah, good idea'
clowns

Amazed they tried it again.  They used it in the last Rugby World Cup and it was a complete flop - as it inevitably would be.  That's been the problem with the Exchange for too long.  It's been run by people who have not got a Scooby Doo.

99% of the money on these markets will be a bot run by bf, working to 107-110%. The dont care if normal traders dont get involved, as long as a few mugs have a punt at their odds, they will churn out another few beans for the shareholders. Thats about the size of it.

The beauty of betfair was that in a fixed handicap or points market something that is very unlikely can happen and you can make money by spectating very little at low odds and then locking in a profit when the game changes with the new slider the market changes all the time to the most likely one st the time and you only ever get to bet on evens   This might as well be a fixed odds bookmaker inplay betting ice defeats the whole attraction of the exchange in the first place ie tsk I g away it’s uniquness
