I came across that site when I was looking at stats a while back and noticed the points you mentioned, maybe I should spend more time delving deeper but to start removing/nominating trap no's etc. seemed to defeat the object of automation, instead i went for the trial and error method, to try to get a generic bot together to apply to all races, sadly though, resulting in more errors :-(

Ive been running a simple £2 back/lay scalping bot this morn, it can make 5 - 25p a race, I was £5.30 up in the first 90 minutes this morning, then it goes south. ( currently £1 down)

I've had the same (ish) results on most things Ive tried with greyhound scalping, half the races will green up 10 -25p pre start time,...............the other half can be 10 - 40p in red at start time, if this can be left for 30 or so seconds, it quite often comes back to profit and greens up ok, but then risking it that long it can easily go suspended, thats what wiped out my £5.30, a £2 lay bet still in market after race starts...............just cant find the sweet spot !

If I get there I'll let you know, good luck with your stat hunting :-)

have a nice day! :-)
You can set your closing bet to take SP, but remember about sp bet minimum size.

thanx to napschnap for input,

I have tried taking sp using the rule "take sp all unmatched bets" it doesn;t always get filled.

What is the minimum stake size for taking sp? do all greyhound races take sp bets, or is it only available at certain meetings?

Thanx for any help,

Have a nice day! :-)

I used other software a few years ago.

As a member of the forum there were some interesting discussions on laying greyhounds and recovery the top of my head the biggest thread involved laying 3rd favourites up to a maximum odds of 4.70 in recovery. Micro stakes were used and there were long sequences, months of wins, until the proverbial 5 in a row would occur to wipe out their bankrolls. I believe a member even sold a system on the internet using BBP settings.

Other discussions involved how high some of the outsiders were compared to the actual SP.
eg: 7/2 = 12.00, 5/1 = 20.00...etc

Logically there must be some value there somewhere as they also used to win a fair share of races over time. I would assume some form of selectivity is required long term.

Admittedly I haven't looked at greyhounds for a while as other sports have taken over my interest.

Hi ,I’m new to automation and I’m struggling , I’m trying to place a lay bet when the price drifts a certain amount of ticks over a certain amount of time then. Could someone point me in the right direction. Cheers
