I can\'t seem to find anything on site that explains the best approach re staking on the competitions. I mainly concentrate on \'Laying\' and usually bet £50, however I notice some folk lay as much as £500, some even place obscure amounts, e.g. £129. I can\'t work out using LSP how it makes any difference!? Obviously other columns come in to play somehow. A explanation could change my whole approach. If there\'s something on site explaining this it\'s well hidden.
Thanks

If you have not read the following this may go someway to explaining settlement.

HELP: Lay Tip Settlement

To make the competition fairer we are now settling lay tips at Odds+ which is either the price you take or the starting price (depending on what you select) PLUS an adjustment for bookie margins

Lay Price is calulcated as follows (all odds are decimal):
Odds <=3 => Odds +10%
3> Odds >=5 => Odds +15%
5> Odds >=11 => Odds +20%
Odds >11 => Odds +50%
The adjustment is to reflect the fact that bookies 'back' odds are a shorter price than the true price (so bookies can make a margin).

Hence for the fairness of the tipster competition if back bets are being made at under fair value, lay bets should be made at a similar amount over fair value, otherwise Lay tipsters have an unfair advantage

To even this out we are therefore using bigger odds to settle lay tips based on the rules above which more closely reflect the equivalent value to what a backer is getting

No, I imagine that would be actively encouraged!

Comments from new members do not show up on the tip pages / App straight away, this is to help us combat any spam etc, so just keep adding your comments and they will show up eventually.
