Backers stake of 213.05    Formula is 183.22 divided by odds-1     183.22/0.86 = backers stake

I was hoping to revive this post , thanks for all the help . I prefer to have everything related to betting in my excel sheet . I am aware that I can find websites that offer these types of calculators.

I was hoping some math wizards could help me with the formula that does the opposite of my previous problem .
So I can calculate how much I should Back after I have had a certain bet matched:

For instance:

Lay: 3,16 , stake \$54,29 (liability 117,26) rake: 2%

Back= 3,42 how do I calculate how much I should back bet ?

Without doing any math, you know you should back a stake a bit lower than the lay stake. Such as 50, 51 up to 54
And you also know that your winnings (stake * (back odds-1)) should be greater than the lay liability.
So if you try with 50 you get
50 * 2.42 = 121 (greater than 117.26)

This does not take commission into account. The exact value needs a formula a bit complex (not space science anyway).

this back and lay still confuses me alot, and im definitely no rocket scientist

I worked out this to inverse the laybet to back:=1+(1/(T3,16-1))*  (1 - 2%) = 1,454 ) but guess i need to look more closly into this

)

Edit nevermind this , I fund out how to convert it back to back stake:

I just need to add how much I can win (-rake) with my liability and divide it with the back stake

Did some Google search and messed around in excel and I was able to figure this out.

Now I have back to lay calculator and lay to back calculator in my excel sheets..  Thanks a lot guys for all the help

Reason I wanted this is because I don't always get my stake 100% matched then I need to figure out how much the matched % takes of the back bet,  then I can recalculate and either try to increase the lay odds or try to back the unmatched bets at other bookies like pinnacle..

As I side note I think smarkets offers better odds then pinnacle on a lot of matches
