Rounding Down, Then Up

The over-round on English Premier League matches this season based on Pinnacle Sports' Closing Prices averages 102.05% - for Bet365 it is 102.9%, slightly higher than last season's 102.77%, so I'm not sure where the idea that Bet365 are offering 'generous value' comes from. 

Make no mistake, Bet365 are significantly improved from earlier days, most likely in response to the arrival of Pinnacle whose odds have been published by Mr. Buchdahl from the 2012-13 season.
In 2006-07, Bet365 were able to lay to an over-round of almost 108%, yet by 2013-14 this was a more equitable 102.62%. 

Interesting that since that season, Bet365's over-round has edged back up, while Pinnacle have basically kept their over-round unchanged.
