Our bets are looking very shaky with 3 bombers gone for the night before half time!

Smith tracking ok though

One more would be nice to get him over the line and push the margin into the 40s!

Smith just falling over the 101.5 mark.
Hopefully not scaled back!

All bets still in play. Except for the Smith/Smith one.
Nice start doc! My mate had a multi needing 25 touches paying $500 and he fell agonisingly short!

I didn't want to be the bearer of bad news when he showed me the bet at half time (Smith had 12) but he's only covered 25 twice this year, once 26 and the other 32! He offered to sell me the bet for $175 once i'd told him but i declined :p

Ps. I’m out for a good part of the day so no guarantees I’ll be able to get the rest of your bets on in time if they’re for the afternoon games but will check in as often as possible.

Possibly a silly question, but looking at the first two green bets in Thanh's table, are they mathematically equivalent to Essendon -24.5, Essendon 15+? If so, is there a reason the agency presents them like that?

The short answer to your question is YES they are 'mathematically' the same...

The difference is the market in which you choose to bet in, either margin market for BET 1&5 and line market for BET 4.

When you see the '0.5' in the bet in points towards it being a line margin bet.

Thanks mate. Makes sense re different bets being displayed in different formats. I think the confusing thing for me is that I always thought of the line as being a c. 50-50 proposition, by construction. It looks like our line bets are paying 1.36 though. Maybe they're set up to be more like 70-30, so that people are encouraged to use them in multis, and go for a bigger payout.

Generally the line betting is set at 48-48, that is $1.92, however, there's an option where you can choose your own line. Consequently the odds will either decrease or increase as you deviate from what the agency set as their 48-48 line margin.

In the example you've mentioned, the original line margin for Essendon was much higher so we only got $1.36 for choosing the -14.5 line margin. Hope that makes sense...
