Shaun: you mentioned SQL / database connectivity. I would only need this if I wanted to test historical data, right?
Another thing. Untill now, I was under the impression that Betfair API readily provides the live scoreline info. Then I saw this thread: viewtopic.php?f=50&t=12490.
Am I correct in understanding that in fact, it is not possible to obtain a scoreline update from the API (in the first post in that thread it's mentioned "Without an actual score feed to trigger bets following a goal...") ? Is this lack of a score feed due to Betfair API itself, and as such would be universal, or is that thread only relevant for BetAngel software users?

I had a look at some commercial bots available for purchase - looks like they can't do apriori exactly what I want (maybe they can, but it's not straightforward to set them up like this).
So indeed, I will have to head down the route of trying to build this bot myself.
