Hi,

Am setting up a simple x's 4 back bet on time delay for First Half Goals... However I'm puzzled with the option of choosing Best Market Price, 2nd Best Market Price or 3rd Best Market Price.

Is there a simple explanation for this please.

I'm assuming;

Best Market Price is the current odds available?
2nd Best Market Price 2 ticks above?
3rd Best Market Price 3 ticks above?

Is there any obvious advantage using one or the other... Cheers

The further outside the price a bet is placed the better the chance of being matched if using larger stakes or trading in-play when their is a bet delay

Thanks for your prompt response Dallas, so as I'm backing (o0.5 FHG) 3rd Best Price would queue me @ 2.98 & I'd need to wait 2 ticks to get matched... Therefore as I'm using time delay set the time a tad earlier?

Cheers

No 3rd best price is 2.88
You'd get matched immediately in that image at 2.92

To place the back bet at 2.98 you'd need to use 'Custom ticks above best reverse market price' 3
