As it says on the tin ..

I am not sure how much of this tourney I will watch, but, am working on some automated strats, which, I will try and put up.

Game 1

Zim v Hong Kong .. Zim 1.24 or so, is right .. No bet

Game 2

Scotland v Afghan

Afghan 1.40 is on the short side for me, thou, the Scotland side is weaker than it was last yr, when they played each other/plus, the dry conditions, will prob suit Aghan better.

Still, would expect some volatility in the game .. will try set-up a bot.

Hi megarain,

The subject title says Matchbook, so are you trying to automate strategies through them? If so, what software are you using, or are you accessing their API directly?

Thanks.

Sorry if it was confusing .. trying to save space.

Not sure if u have used matchbook before .. they have a diff comm model to Bf .. basically 1.15% on stake per bet .. no offset .. and a 7/8/9 sec in -play delay.

All of this, means .. plus the no BA / Matchbook software, means my strats are for the BA platform .. but, I occasionally use Matchbook, for some 1 or 2 bet plays.

Matchbook basically copies the Bf price .. so, if u think Bf is a 100% mkt .. then, your bets on MB, are almost +EV.

No, Betfair .. I cant see a volume figure for matchbook, thou, prices near Bf (not arbs), get taken, after a while.

Matchbook is a one way book ..

There is clearly a mkt maker, who favours one side, and wont let u out, (at the right odds).

Have hedged elsewhere .. this could get close.

(( Volatility is the norm, for shitty teams ))

Game 3 .. Bangladesh v Netherlands

I have as big a position on this game, as in the last yr.

1.20 bang is a joke. (Currently 1.27).

I make them 1.37 chances.
