Hey guys!

I have a stupid question, sorry to ask.

I use Betburger alert service and cannot understand, how to make Double Chance bets there? There were plenty of arbs "1X-2" and I just can't find them at Betfair site.

1x = lay 2
In the betburger pop-up you have lay odds as well, under 1x

Ok, so right now there is an arb:

1 = 1.286 (\$177)

X2 = 5.348 (\$45)

Total 222; Profit 5,5 both ways.

Lay = 1.230 (It offers me \$196 bet)

These numbers just don't settle well in my head.

Could someone explane for "special people" please? Much obliged.

It depends on your betfair commission. Assuming 6.5%

177 @1.286 = 227.62
45 @1.230 (Lay) = 240.65. Less 6.5% = 227.93 (You have to risk 45)

You bet 177+45 = 222. You win more than 227 in any case.

Got it. And thank you. This clears out a lot of confusion for me.
