Isn't this percentage in a constant change if you're an active player? Just asking.

Sure. What I mean is overall, general.

And why don't you tell your real distribution instead of showing an "example"? :-)
Be the first

I used to have almost 40 & 40 on Marathon and Pinnacle until Marathon became unusable.

Marathon is not a basebook! It's a softbook :D

However,

Sometimes, Marathonbet can be used as "Pinnacle Alternative" too but not always, very rare. Usually in Major Leagues, when there's a huge favourite specially. I remember times when I saw Barcelona's oponent priced 12/1 at Pinnacle and 14/1 at Marathon. Same goes for draw too! But because of limit issue, Marathonbet should not be considered as a sharpbook, imo.

My distrubition is,

Pin %40
Sbo %25
IBC %15
Betfair %15
Smarkets %5
Matchbook %0
Betdaq %0

Pinnacle  81.5%
188         10.35% (yes, I am still using it as basebook, although they limited players)
Betdaq    8.03%
Betfair     0.3%

I forgot to mention that, as my bank is small, this percentage looked very different two months ago, for example.
