no excuse for 250k matched.

get on.

Stringer - why's it a** Ok, so most money matched on the home side but obviously half of that money is laying, the other half backing so not sure why it's such a significant factor that leads you to conclyde it might be a dodgy match?

*HEAD IN HANDS MAN*

if half of that is laying why has price gone from 2.06 into 1.67???





Ok, so i've made a bit of a fool of myself here - just assumed that whatever amount is 'matched' on an event (in the above case circa 250k), half would be back bets and half would be lay bets but this isn't the case. Can someone help explain this to me, and how it's linked to prices drifting/shortening?

If an event consists of a backer putting down £100 at say even money, and a layer accepts this amount, the total matched on this event would be £200 (?)

If an event consists of a backer putting down £100 at odds of 1.5, and a layer accepts this amount, the total matched on this event would be £150 (?)

For those that have the time, the market graph the above text related to is the Argie footy game on later this evening where of 250k matched on the event, 95% of that was matched on the home win.

Any help much appreciated

The matched amount is 2x the backer's stake, so it would be £200 in both of those examples.

On the purple it's different. It's the sum of the backer's stake and the layer's liability. Here it is as El Bandido says.
