Anyone remember two and a half years ago when you had vibrant total points and handicap markets on all basketball games based around one fixed level on both.   Then out of the blue these were scrapped for the new moving markets.  Since then you can only ever seem to get on at evens so they are effectively no different from any two a penny fixed odds bookemaker but more to the point if our the mobile or web version they are often impossible to use.  Click on total points and you often get the default 120.5 level about 60 clicks away from the market level or if you do get the right level it soon moves around to a ridiculous level or just has no liquidity as no one can any longer be bother per to put up with messing around with these markets.  Click on handicap and it is often the wrong way around with the odds on favourite showing a old handicap only odds on the markets are people trying to trick someone who hasn’t noticed . Email about it a they don’t have a clue what you are talking about or b you get the standard thanks for your comments but it never changes or gets any better and in past two weeks.  Surely it is time to sort this out or just go back to the old style which worked markedly better and had a lot more interest in them (they were what made exchange unique).  This problem not unique to basketball points but certainly is a lot worse.  The exception to this is nba where it does at least seem to move correctly.  Anyone else agree
Pause Switch to Standard View Points and handicaps will they ever...

A month late I know, but I know exactly what you're talking about. No one touches these markets anymore, traders OR betters.

Yes. They dont work properly . have to be very careful as the page moves around as if trying to trick you, agree. Also not only do they move around but it changes from handicap to points and vice versa . Whats that all about .  Also it will superimpose on top of one another so you cant make the line out , but thats in AH football . I prefer the format but its never worked properly as you say.

I've been nearly caught out on this many times too. The standard of programming in these markets is an absolute disgrace. I don't think they could have been tested in any form prior to unveiling.

I agree. They should give back fixed over/under and handicap for games. I don't understand the move for betfair, for me it seemed that the thing worked well. Why change things then?
