  • Selection name – name of the teams or selections you wish to bet or trade on. 
  • Rev (reverse) – this can be selected to make the lay on the left side of the market and the back on the right side of the market. 
  • Dutch – this can be selected to back multiple selections to get a potential profit on both or multiple selections in your selected market. 
  • Price history – This is a graph that shows the movement of the back or lay prices throughout the match. 
  • WOM (Weight of Money) – This is a calculation of the three amounts available to back and lay divided by each other. If it is pink it may indicate that the price is likely to go out so you can lay and back later at a higher price. If its blue, then you may be able to lay it at a lower price. 
  • Blue arrows – these can be used to move your odds down or up to place your bets at higher or lower odds. Once you change the odds using the arrows it will stay fixed at those odds and will not update. The best price will continue to update as normal. 
  • Percentage of market - the book % for the back odds and likewise above the best lay odds. You can right click on these percentages to sort the grid either by the back odds or lay odds in ascending or descending order. 
  • Back stake – This is how much you are willing to back on the selection. 
  • Lay Stake – This is how you are willing to lay on the selection. 
  • Profit – This will show you your potential profit if that selection were to win depending on if you have backed or laid the selection. 
  • Level Profit – This can also be referred to as a green book or greening up. You can hover the mouse over the level profit column selection to see if there is a opportunity to lock in profit or minimise your loses. The column will then display the potential that can be taken against each selection in the market.
