So they haven't acknowledged it was Half Time 8 minutes ago or stopped the clock @ 45 minutes or even changed the score.
Supposing someone only had access to Betfair and no TV and assumed it was 0/0.
Most would then, falsely, lay Liverpool @ 1/4 or 1.25  !!

Betfair just no longer have the staff to manage these markets properly anymore.

Thanks for the reply Sparrow but surely they make an absolute fortune and are worth heaven only knows.

Even if we say they make just 1% Commission on that market then that is £42,000+on one market in one game and they can afford to pay for a normal service  ?

Sounds insane.

it's been so ropey for years, the livescore information, i think most of us just ignore it and use flashscore or one of the others.

If not to the Moon then certainly to the Rio Grande in some style.

Imagine that Newcastle v Villa game the other night when Villa scored late. Some would have backed them b4 the goal @ 10/1 say £50 to win £500. They have been known to never UNsuspend the Match Odds Market so near the end @ 1/0 Villa they could be laid @ 1/10 say £500 to lose £50 meaning a guaranteed profit of £450 either way and the market does not re-open @1/0 to facilitate that and then Newcastle equalize with their last attack and you lose your £50 and all because of a useless service..

When I said that betfair no longer had the staff I suppose I meant that they no longer had the more competent people. We see mistakes on many other sports also such as failures to withdraw non runners in horse and greyhound markets.

It is ....... I suppose ....... inconvenient.
I often look at the markets and scorelines but not the teams, and they can be anywhere in the world. Having said that, looking at the mkt page of any game tells the whole story obviously, and other form-sites that I use DO have live-score, so I'm not going to place a bet without knowing what the score is.
My problem, don't if I'd call it a problem really, is that, at a glance,  I can miss a game-inplay situation because the coupon isn't up to date.
Life eh? Plain

Why bother getting a poor service, when they could
provide a good service or indeed no service.

I noticed some score service had 6 Iranian u23 games
up on lives coring, very impressive in days of covid
but... How do we know its accurate?
