Let’s watch an example of a middle (marked orange) with MarathonbetUK and Betcity:



This is the line for the very event offered by Betcity:



In this case, we are interested in TU 187.5 with @1.90. (marked blue)

And a somewhat different line with total from Marathonbet for the same event:



Here you may pay your attention to TO 184.5 with @1.92. (marked brown)

The middle in this case is formed of two bets: TU 187.5 (Betcity) and TO 184.5 (Marathonbet). But what’s the point? You’ll get it when we reckon these bets up.

Imagine your investment is $100. Taking into account the short odds, the best way is to stake $50 on TU 187.5 and $50 on TO 184.4. The odds make 3 (187.5-184.5). If the score is within this limit, both stakes will play off. Accordingly, your win under such conditions would be the maximum.

Middles may be combined ofdifferent lines. But total makes up the middle only with another total.

The above example shows all the pros & cons of such bets. The advantage is the big win in case when the middle plays off. And the disadvantage is the risk of losing the most of your stake.

You have to be extremely attentive to profit. You have to possess a quick response to bet both outcomes in time. Good middles do not last long! And obviously you’ll need a bit of luck.
