This site shows Cows paying $1.83 to win, Manly paying $1.97. Does that mean both results are odds-on?? Clearly I am missing something..

Sports bet has cows at 1.75, manly 2.10. The odds on this site are close, but other agencies aren't too far off

$1.77 cows $2.10 Manly @ centrebet at the mo so Dan may have to check the feed. It isn't actually that wacky. If it was an even money contest (as in they can't split who will win) it is usually around $1.90 to $1.95 each (depends on the different agencies). The 5c to 10c each side is the bookies' arbitrage margin.

Don't forget the odds represent the percentage chance of winning. The bookies like to have that percentage up over 100, of course there is only 100% chance of a winner. So for every point over 100 the bookie has the edge in his favour.

They put up Manly @ $2.40 @ Tab sportsbet about 20 mins in when I thought we were on top and grabbed it.

Haha yeah, I couldn't believe that when I saw it. I don't have a sportsbet account so I couldn't jump on. Glad you got on MB.

Thanks Volley. I wasn't going to bet after the last 3 weeks but we looked really good. I wasn't confident we would win, just the odds seemed in our favour.
