Football Odds Criteria to Bet on Another Market


Loving the bfexplorer program, so have started to become more adventurous!

I want to do the following:

Check Match Odds for HOME team to be equal/under 1.50, and if positive, bet on Correct_Scores for 1-0, 2-0 and 3-0, if negative then no bet.

I was looking at the bots a) "IF/THEN", "Execute on Associated Market" and "Concurrent bets" but wasn't sure if they link the Match to the right correct score. I also wonder if the Correct Scoreline is in a different place each time for positioning of bet?

Any ideas?

Thanks, Stu

    You will need to use following bots:

    Place Bet

    Execute On Selections

    Execute On Associated Market

    If Then Else

    I do not know what kind of bets you want to place on 1 – 0, 2 – 0, 3 – 0 selections of the correct score market, it makes sense to be dutching bets, like you can find in Bet Wizards tools (click on the menu Market / Bet Wizards / Back Dutching)

    Unfortunately “Dutching Bot” is not yet available, so you can only use StakeType parameter of “Place Bet” bot to declare what Stake amount will be placed.

    To place bets on 1 – 0, 2 – 0, 3 – 0 selections you create bot settings using “Execute On Selections” bot. The 1 – 0 selection have index 5, 2 – 0 have index 9, and 3 – 0 have index 13, so in the parameter OnSelections you type: 5,9,13 and ask to execute your Place Bet bot.

    The next step is to use “Execute On Associated Market” bot, here you set BotName you want to execute, so it is bot name you created using “Execute On Selections” bot. The parameter Market name is: CORRECT_SCORE.

    You want to execute your strategy only on football matches where the home team is traded <= 1.5. All selection bots, so bots which offer the parameter ExecuteOnSelection, also offer selection criteria you can add in Entry Criteria tab panel.

    Unfortunately “Execute On Associated Market” bot is not selection bot, it is market bot having no information about the market selection on which it is executed, therefore you need to use “If Then Else” and set the parameter IfThenCriteria to: [LastPriceTraded] <= 1.5, and IfThenBotName to the assigned bot name of “Execute On Associated Market”.

    Great! Thanks a lot, that is exactly what I needed. The bets aren't Dutching, just a simple home odds criteria, so I'll be betting the Correct Score with equal pts/£/$. I notice Betfair doesn't give Correct_Score2 on every match for higher scorelines which is a shame.
