ok can anyone work out my return

i put a £5 bet on at odds of 5.5
i work that out as 5 x 5.5= 27.50 + £5 stake as £32.50 return

but they are saying the return is £27.50 all together

what do you guys think the return should be?

I agree with you. have you questioned it?

Dont you get 5.5 back for each of your £1 inc your stake so £27.50 would be right. I dont know though!

Yeah, but you're supposed to get your original stake back when you win I think?

Dear Steven

Thank you for your e-mail.

A bet of £5 at odds of 5.5 will give you a profit of £22.50. So your returns would infact be £27.50 less commission of 5% at £0.88.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any further enquiries.

Kind regards,

not on betfair
but then the odds reflect that

for example a 3/1 shot on course will probably be about 4.3/4.5 on betfair/

i just looked on betfair odds converter and 5.5 as a fraction is 9/2

dunno how that works as i thought it would just be 5.5/1 or 11/2

Chelsea 7/1 to win now, could come off if they get one?

11 on betfair
really can't see them scoring 3 past us - our defence is usually solid (newcastle game excluded!)
#15
The returns on Betfair are inclusive of your stake. They are not odds. So 11.00, for example, is 10/1 and 4.50 is 7/2.
#16
thank you all for your help
i guess its right, just glad they are not conning me :)

Yeah the odds of 5.5 include your stake so it would equate to 4.5 for every £1 you bet
