cross market betting
« on: 07 Sep 2016, 14:22 »
Hi everyone,
Would you be so nice to explain me how to back a football team in HT market if it's already backet in Match Odds market by another trigger?

I just dont know how to remember the selection ID which was backed by the first trigger and then back the same selection ID with the second.

Thanks!

Hi
football1_

Maybe try a condition block like this in the HT trigger:
OR
   selections index is equal to 1
   and selections trigger expression football1_s_1_back_matched is greater than 0
OR
   selections index is equal to 2
   and selections trigger expression football1_s_2_back_matched is greater than 0
OR
   selections index is equal to 3
   and selections trigger expression football1_s_3_back_matched is greater than 0

Is always Index 1 the same team in every market?
Lets say in Next Goal market Index 1 is Barcelona but in Match Odds market Index 1 can be Albacete?

P.S: Just checked a few markets - Index 1 is the lowest odd. It has nothing to do with teams

Hi
selection index is the order of selections as displayed by Betfair. You are correct sometimes the index is not the same in some markets, but you can adjust your conditions to take that into account. In your first post you asked about betting the same selection in the Half Time market if a bet has been placed in the Match Odds market. Now the index numbers are always the same in those two markets:
1 = Home Team
2 = Away Team
3 = The Draw

another way to do the HT / MO is:
markets betting code is Half Time (Soccer)
AND
     OR
         selections trigger expression football1_s_1_back_matched is greater than 0
         and selections trigger expression sel_id is equal to football1_s_1_sel_id
     OR
         selections trigger expression football1_s_2_back_matched is greater than 0
         and selections trigger expression sel_id is equal to football1_s_2_sel_id

The method is the same if you want to bet in Next Goal if a selection has a matched back bet in Match Odds:
markets betting code is Next Goal (Soccer)
AND
     OR
         selections trigger expression football1_s_1_back_matched is greater than 0
         and selections trigger expression sel_id is equal to football1_s_1_sel_id
     OR
         selections trigger expression football1_s_2_back_matched is greater than 0
         and selections trigger expression sel_id is equal to football1_s_2_sel_id
