Betfair Tennis Trading and Data Visualization

When trading a tennis match on betfair at in-play you must learn how player’s odds to win a match changes at any point, game and set won or lost by a player. Knowing how odds react to match events is crucial for any profitable strategy.


I have prepared a short video showing three matches and fixed odds changes at any played point for the player who won the math.

    Hi Stefan,

    This is very useful data visualization. Is there a way to achieve it on bfexplorer? Or with a combination of other visualizatin tools?

    Thanks

    Hi, what you can watch on my video is commercial product I used to visualize betfair tennis data.  

    I wrote simple bot for bfexplorer to save tennis match data, so time, price/odds, traded volume, player on server, sets score, games score, and points. From the above data I was able to produce charts in my video. 

    Here is another article showing how to use betfair bot and bfexplorer console to make charts using JavaScript library called plot.ly: 

    Betfair Market Charts and Data Analyzing

    I do not know if you would be able (by using plot.ly library) to visualize market data similar like I did by using Tableau software, but if you are interesting and want to collaborate, then I can offer you to build bot to save tennis or football match data and scores, and you will deliver visualization code written with plot.ly, or d3js.org JavaScript library. 

    I am able to stream such data from bfexplorer, so your JavaScript app would be able to present visualization in real time, if you like.
