Hello,

I'm sitting here trying to figure it out but I can't quite get there. I want to know which lay bet is better. To lay something on smarkets with odds 1.76 at 2% comission or lay it at Betfair on 1.72 at 6.5% comission.

How do I make this calculation? Is it simply 1.065 x 1.72 for Betfair true odds and 1.02 x 1.76 for smarkets and see which one is lower?

1.76 lay is equal to 2.316 back. With 2.0% commission is 2.289
1.72 lay is equal to 2.389 back. With 6.5% commission is 2.299.

back = 1+1/(lay-1)
