I've just seen a market on Betfair for which club will be top goalscorers in the Chapions League. Barcelona and Real Madrid are both at 2.0, and have both scored 35 goals so it will be a dead heat.
The BF rules say:
◦For each bet matched on a relevant winning selection, the stake money is first reduced in proportion by multiplying it by the sum of the number of winners expected (as set out in the Market Information), divided by the number of actual winners (i.e. stake multiplied by (number of winners expected/number of actual winners)). The winnings are then paid to the successful backers on this 'reduced stake' (reduced stake multiplied by traded price) and the remaining stake money is paid to the appropriate layers
Does this mean that a £100 stake on Barcelona (for example) would return 100 x (1/2) = £50 profit? I assume not but that seems to be what the rules say! But I am tired...
Thanks in advance
