Was watching Peter's video about using excel to calculate potential odds in the place market (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MN2vEXH0aEM) and was wondering if there was a similar equation that would give the forecast market odds? Or if anyone is aware of an online calculator that is available?

Peter's video is already showing how you'd calculate the forecasts, it's then adding all the combinations where Horse B is in the top two to give you the place odds. So if you look at his spreadsheet he's showing the chance of A beating B is 40% i.e. 2.5 and so on through all the runners

I looked at that but the odds were way off, the spreadsheet was giving odds of around 9 while the odds on betfair were 36 for one of them and the others I tried were way off too. I know in the video it's said it isn't accurate and was expecting a bit of a difference but 9/36 seems too much.
