Must have been in place for over 10 years now.  Been a long time since I used to bet on cricket. Perhaps a few older heads can advise?

Still seems like a travesty they don't do dead heat payouts.

What's the market rules for NFL matches if it's still a tie in overtime? And ditto for Australian RL?

In NFL its void. Should be dead heat me thinks

For some reason I thought it was void. At least it's consistent. If not slightly odd. I think Australian RL is a dead heat, but I might be wrong there. If it is indeed a dead heat, then the consistency flies out of the window.

i think just under 10 years. i remember getting something settled as a dead heat shortly after i joined.

it changed after consultation with the "major market makers"; you would presume that they have positions away from betfair that have to be settled in the same way.

While clearly the market makers, particularly in IPL, for cricket are potentially different, I don't understand why Betfair would conceded to arbers on cricket for consistent rules across different bookies' platforms, but not on other sports. E.g. tennis betting for retirements can be very different across different bookies. And I use tennis as a prime example because some markets can match cricket for volume traded.

Australian RL has a 'golden point' (sudden death) included in the result. Thus draws rarely happen. I've argued in the past that the Super Over should be the same in limited over cricket.

The Super Over has only been used in international matches since 2008. Seems to me to be a case of BF not changing with the sport.

AFL rules,

Who will win this match? Unmatched bets will be cancelled at the start of the match and the market will be turned IN PLAY. Thereafter, unmatched bets will not be cancelled at any time. Golden Point Overtime Included. If no score occurs during Overtime the result will be settled as a Dead Heat.

Aussie NRL matches on here are settled as a dead heat in the event of no score during overtime.

As per IPL with the super over, the market really should include that, and then if still a tie, be paid out as a dead heat.

I seem to recall the rule was changed as stated above due to the wishes of the big market makers at the time - something to do with the Asian betting market also voiding on the draw - would this be correct? With the explosion of 20/20, the huge numbers involved in trading on here, surely the rule is now archaic for betfair?
