Betfair question

Postby gripperrocks » Fri Jun 28, 2013 12:40 pm

Hi guys,

Apologies if I sound daft asking this but I have a question on the following image:

Image

Take Shane Lowry: Does the blank space on the lay side mean I can get a lay of 1.01 matched up to £77 or does it mean I can back? I've never managed to get my head round this! :oops:

i think it means you can back to that value at that price on the back market and i think it means there are no matched bets at all on the lay market ??
Will be interested in knowing more about this too !
Thanks for bringing it up.. im sure it will come useful one day ..

1.01 is being offered if you want to back it. The lay box is empty because currently no one is asking for a better price. For example if you want 4/1 on Lowry to finish top 5 you would click on back and type 5.0 and how much you want. This would then appear in the lay side. Someone would have the option to click on lay and give you the 5.0 you were requesting.

Hope this is clear, if not just ask and I'll try to explain it better.

All it means is you can back (for him to finish in the top 5) him for 77 pounds at 1.01.
The lay price is blank in your above example, which means there is no current oppurtunity to back him at a price to NOT finish in the top 5.

Back means you are backing he will, lay means you are backing he won't. Take the tutorial they have its pretty good.

Pretty sure I get it now. Cheers D.O.T. So if I was to back Bjorn at 2.6 for £18 would 2.2 become the next available price to back?
