How betting line is formed?
Users offer their odds and sums of bets for different sports events. For every offer a bet and sum are recalculated for an counter-event and a sum of bet for a counter offer is formed. Such offers form the line. For example: a bettor bets 100 SCR for home team win (1) in a football game at 1.5 odds. A counter-event for this outcome is a draw or away team win (X2). Counter coefficient for 1.5 is 3.0. Counter obligations for 100 SCR at 1.5 odds is 50 SCR at 3.0 coefficient. Correspondingly 3.0 odds for a draw or away team win will appear in the line with a possibility to bet 50 SCR on it.
