Hi guys I want to use a bot to to place my FTS Ultimate database lays

They will all be match odds only so lay the draw, lay away etc 

I would load the bets in on a Friday after sheets have been compiled and would like the bot to place the bets 5 mins before KO

I am assuming there are many bots that would do this, but would like recommendations from people already using a bot? Thanks

It’s hard to know I guess without having tried all the Bots about?

BF Bot Manager could do it easily enough, you’d have to just sit and scroll through the games and manually click each game in order to export them as a “Tip” for the bot to follow.

There might be simpler software about though? BF Bot Manager would need a VPS or for your PC to be on all weekend.

If you already have Bet Angel trading software you could do these type of bets easily using guardian

Yup I would run it on a VPS

In an ideal world the easiest way to do it would be if you could run a macro on all 2 databases and it exports it to one sheet that you can upload to a bot!

That’s what I do basically and I’m using BF Bot Manager.  I click a button and it copies my selections to a sheet and then another macro creates a file that BF Bot Manager reads to load up the correct markets and place the bets.

To do that second bit though you need to use the Betfair API to get the id of the market you want to bet on as that is required by the BF Bot Manager file.  Otherwise you’ll have to upload the markets manually.

Having never used any other bots I don’t know if it’s easier to upload things to them.

If these are for Ultimate bets then i’m not sure a bot is the best idea.  The idea is to get the same price (or as close as possible) as the odds sheet Ian send out.  If taking the price 5 mins before KO you would be risking a big price drift and therefore cutting your margin.  If the price goes above 10% of Friday/Tuesday 8AM price, I leave a bet at that price waiting to get matched in play.

If of course you have a strategy that works to prices 5 mins before KO, then ignore what I said above, just pointing this out in case it’s relevant.

The following users say thank you to simonmuir62 for this useful post:

Yeah, the way I’m using BF Bot Manager is to place a bet as soon as the odds sheets come out at the odds on the sheet.  It just saves time getting the bot to do it rather than having to enter each bet manually.

I want to add a second part to that so that if it doesn’t get matched, then get it to place a bet a few minutes before kick at the current price if it’s <10% bigger than the price on the odds sheet.
