Not directly, since for me the ratio best odds / pinnacle odds isn't the initial criteria for a bet, but i know some people who use this strategy.
In slightly modified form i use this method to calculate 'expected best (playable) odds' from average odds in my database.
This has some obvious disadvantages, since the actual best odds is almost never exactly the expected one, but there are some major advantages:
 actual best odds << expected best odds > value probably gone
 actual best odds >> expected best odds > probably missed some crucial (new) information
 you can test strategies with old data & presume equal odds conditions even when the average margins has changed or the available past odds informations are incomplete / not that good
Of course you don't have to use / start with the equal risk method to formulate expected best odds, but it's the best / most accurate one i know of.
