Liability & Exchange Balances
Looking at the above examples, we can see the higher the odds the more profit we can extract. Please bear in mind, the higher the odds the higher exchange balance we would need to cover the liability.
- Lay odds 5.2 = £32,62 liability
- Lay odds 12.0 = £92.05 liability
- Lay odds 22.0 = £181.78 liability
If you have a fairly moderate exchange balance, you might be better sticking with slightly lower odds and slightly lower profit margins. If you lay one £10 free bet at odds of 22 on the exchange, this might take up all your exchange balance and not allow you to complete any further matched betting until the bet has settled.
It’s also important to not over commit, if you have only £100 in your exchange, you need to make sure your liability does not exceed your balance otherwise the bet will not be placed. The yesbets Oddsmatcher uses all your balances to let you know if you have enough funds in your exchange account to place the full bet successfully.
Blue Buttons - OK to place (but please check as liquidity can change quickly)
Red Button - Not enough liquidity in the exchange to fully matched your bet, you can be left with a partially matched bet.
Orange Button - Not enough funds in your betting / exchange account to place the bet - you will need to deposit additional funds.
