Hi all,

My SHG system is still doing my head in, literally. I’m going to bite the bullet and trial laying them again at HT but with something small like £10s etc that I can automate and just ignore basically day to day.

The criteria would be fairly simple:

– I select/load the games in the morning/night before
– I specify the 2 scorelines that qualify for a lay
– I select the max odds to lay and stake

Ideally I’d like this up and running yesterday, if anyone can direct me to how/where I can get this running ASAP would be much appreciated!

Cheers.

Some additional info that might prove useful…

Are the two scorelines fixed (or do they change on a match by match basis)?

Is the max odds fixed (or does it change on a match by match basis)?

Is the stake fixed (or does it change on a match by match basis)?

Hi thanks for the reply.

the stake and max price would be exactly the same for every game however I would obviously need the ability to edit this month by month etc.

Every game pre selected is a qual if either score X or X at HT and then follows the rules as above.

Which software are you using to automate?

I’m currently attempting to automate my LCS strategy using Betfair Bot Manager, although having a few teething issues, but could certainly show you the point i’m at right now if you are using that software? 

Also in another thread I saw Ian is building bots directly from the FDD sheets, so worth giving him a shout too, although  I don’t know much about this.  I’ve sent him my criteria to see if he can help.

Here is the thread – Ian has now pinned a post to the top confirming he is doing this.

Ah ok, sorry, i’m afraid I can’t be of any help then!  Worth checking out the other thread I linked then as it’s building from scratch in there.

I second Betfair Bot Manager, I currently use it for all my bets/trades. It’d be fairly straightforward to set it up for what you need, I already have something similar for FHG.

They do a free trial;

https://www.bfbotmanager.com/trial

Happy to help you configure it if needed.

Hi Phil, have you used any of the features where it integrates In Play stats from the 3rd party?

If anyone wants a bot built you can have a look into bettingdev site or bfbotmanager as mentioned.

Hi Simon,

I’m having a go with BF Bot Manager alongside some others, I’ve found your topics/posts in their forum, it was quite helpful for me when setting up my own strats.

Did you resolve all the issues you were having in the end?

Hi Dio,

Glad they were of help to someone else and not just me.  Yeah I solved them just before last weekend.  Weekend just passed the bot behaved perfectly and entered every game it should have at the correct time and at the correct price, and swerved the games that didn’t qualify at HT too.  So yeah, delighted with how it’s progressing.  I’m happy to share the bot with you if you want to DM me your e-mail address.  Will give you a starting point to edit it to your own needs.

Cheers for the offer, I “should” be ok now as have Rade helping me with my programming, Ive sent him what I’ve set up and he is reviewing it for me. Very quick to respond to emails which is handy!

If I get stuck I’ll def give you a shout.

Hi Dio,

Yeah I’ve had a few strategies using this. It used to require a membership to inplaytrading.com (at an extra cost) but after a recent update has inplay stats provided without the need for inplaytrading.com and it works fine placing bets in FHG when time is 20-25min and score is 0-0.

I also have a spreadsheet that may be of help to you. It runs through my selections for each system (From FTS and I have another one for another source) and retrieves the market ID from betfair and saves them as a CSV.

The CSV is then auto loaded into BF Bot Manager as ‘tips’ and the relevant strategy only bet on the ‘tips’ that are marked for them. It save you having to manually load markets & selections.

Let me know if you’d like me to send it to you.

Cheers,

Phil.

Hi Phil,

 

Sorry to hijack the conversation but that sheet would be a big help to me if you wouldn’t mind sharing?  I spend a lot of time on Saturday and Sunday morning manually adding my games haha!

Hi Phil

I probably won’t have much use for the file as my manual bets for this bot are fairly slim per day so not much work, but in return for your offer if you wanted me to look at any of your ideas eg. FHG 0-0 20 mins entry based on your criteria then let me know, I have a bot recording the InPlayTrading scanner since June so have over 15,000 samples now with shots on/off every 10 mins.

I’m struggling with this bot I must admit the instructions might as well be written in Chinese.

I’m trying to manually select games to place a lay of the current score on 80 mins. I can find the games via the Tree Navigation but from there I can only load the market and can’t work out how to add rules?

Any help appreciated.

Have only started playing around with this recently so I may be wrong. 

I think that you load the matches & the markets required on the markets tab and activate the relevant bot on the bots/strategies tab. The relevant bot will run on those selected in the market list. The downside (I think) is that if you activate say 2 different correct score bots they will both run on ALL correct score markets selected i.e you can’t run one CS bot on one match and a different CS bot on another.

That’s the way I see it but more than happy to be corrected.

Ah ok yeh so I cannot run a specific strategy to a manually chosen game and that same strat will run for all markets in my grid view. Annoying!
