    Pinnaclesports reduce Odds

    I was a bit suprised, of whats going on at Pinnacle in the last time, maybe it`s a longer process, but i only see it shortly.

    First of all, i`ve seen, if a Bet is going public, Pinnacle reducing odds, for example in Basketball:

    Starting with 1.925 to 1.925, getting a 1.865 to 1.865, after Pinnacle intervent.

    They are changing the proportion, odds getting lower.

    ----------
    But now, the new Step by them, they don`t start with the normal odds 1.925 to 1.925, they even open the market

    with the 1.865 to 1.865, not only in Basketball.


    Really bad Behaviour, odds are pretty shitty, if that is the future by them

    Volleyball today all matches:

    Former, at the example of Peru vs Puerto Rico, odds would have been: 3.85 to 1.29, NOW starting with 3.37 to 1.29

    Probably Volleyball are not too much interested for betting community

    I'd guess they are getting hit on those smaller markets and adjusting vig for their risk level.

    Annoying as a bettor of that sport, but that's how a book that takes all comers and does not limit winners handles risk management.

    Limits are the same, as they used to be and Volleyball is more popular, you maybe thinking, of cause not now, when only a few competions are running

    As i have mentioned, they also did it in Basketball and if i am remembering correctly, even in bigger leagues like VTB (not from the start, but when a Bet is getting public). And if i wouldn`t be suprised, that they will do it also from the start - in bigger Leagues, not only in Basketball and Volleyball (maybe they already did it elsewhere, but i only recognized it in both Sports), and reducing their odds, adapting them to European shitty Level.

    I wouldn't expect any book to run their sportsbooks to the same percentages on every sport. Clearly major sports such as the NFL and the English Premier League are better known commodities, are more predictable, and are less susceptible to outside influence.
