Hi,

Thank you for considering the following trigger request.

Before the trigger is activated each day I will manually add the games that I would like to trade, for example I could add the Match Odds market for each selection. But the trigger will need to link to the Under/Over Goals markets in order to place my bets.

The trigger will activate at half time, i.e. after completion of the first half.

(1) If there are no goals, the trigger will place KEEP bets (i.e. orders) as follows:

- LAY UNDER 0.5 GOALS using STAKE1 and PRICE1 (stake1 and price1 are user-defined)
- LAY UNDER 0.5 GOALS using STAKE2 and PRICE2
- LAY UNDER 0.5 GOALS using STAKE3 and PRICE3

- LAY UNDER 1.5 GOALS using STAKE4 and PRICE4
- LAY UNDER 1.5 GOALS using STAKE5 and PRICE5
- LAY UNDER 1.5 GOALS using STAKE6 and PRICE6

(2) If there is 1 goal, the trigger will place KEEP bets (i.e. orders) as follows:

- LAY UNDER 1.5 GOALS using STAKE1 and PRICE1 (stake1 and price1 are user-defined)
- LAY UNDER 1.5 GOALS using STAKE2 and PRICE2
- LAY UNDER 1.5 GOALS using STAKE3 and PRICE3

- LAY UNDER 2.5 GOALS using STAKE4 and PRICE4
- LAY UNDER 2.5 GOALS using STAKE5 and PRICE5
- LAY UNDER 2.5 GOALS using STAKE6 and PRICE6

(3) If there are 2 goals, the trigger will place KEEP bets (i.e. orders) as follows:

- LAY UNDER 2.5 GOALS using STAKE1 and PRICE1 (stake1 and price1 are user-defined)
- LAY UNDER 2.5 GOALS using STAKE2 and PRICE2
- LAY UNDER 2.5 GOALS using STAKE3 and PRICE3

- LAY UNDER 3.5 GOALS using STAKE4 and PRICE4
- LAY UNDER 3.5 GOALS using STAKE5 and PRICE5
- LAY UNDER 3.5 GOALS using STAKE6 and PRICE6

(4) AND SO ON, UP TO THE MAXIMUM NUMBER OF UNDER/OVER GOALS MARKETS.

Thanks again for your help.

Best regards,

Mark

Hi, thanks for the message. How long does it usually take to confirm whether or not the trigger is possible?

Best regards, Mark

hi
you will need to load all the over/under markets in to mfp.
what do you need the match odds for, as there are no instructions for that market only score related instructions.
do you require a constant for each bet made or just for the stake 1 to 6 and price 1 to 6.
so the same stake and price amounts for each under market.

Hi mcbee,

Many thanks for the reply.

I don't need match odds, it's just correct score. In fact my selections are based on the half-time score, e.g. if 0-1 I bet Over 1.5/2.2, if 1-1 Over 2.5/3.5, etc. I only bet for a maximum of 2 goals in the second half.

Each bet on the first goal in the 2nd half will be a lay bet, each bet on the second goal in the 2nd half will be a back bet. The lay odds/stake and the back odds/stake will always be the same. For example:

If the HT score is 1-1, I lay Under 2.5 for £x at odds of 4.0 and I back Over 3.5 for £y at odds of 2.76.

I hope this helps.

Thanks, Mark

Hi, have you been able to assess my requirements? It would be good to hear from you again soon as I have only signed up for 1 month to find out whether you can automate my strategy.

Thanks, Mark

hi
sorry for the delay, i have been ill.
here is your trigger
in the constants you can set
Bet amount for the lay bet
Lay price to bet
Bet amount for the back bet
Back price to bet

you need to load the 0.5,1.5,2.5 and 3.5 over/under markets into mfp.
set mfp to monitor the markets 1 minute before the start time.
at half time only the triggers will place a lay bet and back bet, lay at .05 goals above the score and back at 1.5 goals above the score, to a maximum of 2 goals.
the bet will be placed at your set price ready to be matched.

please use test mode until you are happy with your settings

Awesome, I hope you are feeling better. I will make a trial run this weekend. A few questions please:

(1) Is it possible to check whether there has been a red card?
(2) Can an email be sent after a bet has been placed?
(3) How much will further modifications and enhancements cost?
(4) Can selections be imported, or is it best to manually load the markets?

Thanks again mcbee, I have been a member in the past (for horse racing triggers) and your support was first class, so I guessed there must be something wrong.

Cheers,

Mark

Thanks again mcbee, I have another strategy so I will post another request this week and I will wait to see what the billing response is - I think it automatically tells me whether or not I need to pay.

If I would like the email within the trigger do I need to log another request, or can it be done as part of this trigger?

Best regards,

Mark

hi
sorry but it is another request, but you should be able to add it yourself, try making a simple trigger to back a selection IN TEST MODE and add the email trigger with the conditions
markets number of matched back bets is greater than 0
OR markets number of matched lay bets is greater than 0
set the trigger to once per selection
