Paddy Power frequently has "locks" on betting options

    Why does Paddy Power put locks on some bets?

    Is it because there's something breaking on their end?

    e.g. there are several tennis matches on the Western & Southern 2018, and only 3 of them have betting odds selectable, and 4 have locks.

    The locks mean the market is suspended for betting for whatever reason... match is finished, a player is possibly injured, match is about to finish, there is about to be a big break in serve etc etc

    It could be suspended for any number of reasons

    Well what's odd is that it happens mid-match while games are progressing without a problem.

    I find that other betting sites still maintain the selections, while Paddy Power suddenly disables the bets. No particularly obvious reason as the match is progressing fine.

    I find it bizarre that no-one else has noticed this.
