Option 2 - Lay At The New Odds
Secondly you can use the advanced settings on the yesbets calculator to work out how much you should lay at the new odds of 4.0 to ensure that your matched bet remains equal.
Lets open the yesbets calculator and change the toggle from “basic” to “advanced”
We now see some additional settings at the bottom - “Part Lays”
In these sections, lets add in the values of the lay stakes we currently have matched, so its £2 staked at 3.85.
We also need to add the current back bet we have in place and the new lay odds (4.0).
We are now provided with a new lay amounts to place £11.83 at odds of 4.0. This would then provide us with a matched bet that provides equal profit of £13.82 (instead of the original £13.75)
Before placing the new lay, please make sure to cancel the current unmatched lay bet. As we would not want this to also get matched before the event starts.Sometimes money is taken on the exchange faster than you can place the bet, meaning that your bet is only partially matched
