Linking to Betfair

Live Betting Setup

When your Bet Mover account is linked to Betfair you'll have the option of 'betting' in the layout selector:

You'll also have access the betting columns in the layout editor to create new layouts if you wish.

The Live Betfair block of columns has back and lay columns:

Clicking on the Back (blue) cell triggers a back bet to be ordered, Lay (red) - a lay bet.

Betting Controls

When you have any live betting columns in the grid the betting controls are shown and include:

Back, Lay Options:

Back and Lay options allow you to set your stake and odds offset. 

The offset value is the number of ticks from the best price available.

In the examples above the back bets will go in 10 ticks less than the current price, lay bets will go in 10 ticks higher than the current lay price.

These offset values ONLY apply the B1 and L1 best available price columns. You have the option of adding more back and lay columns at set ticks away from the best price - these are added via the layout editor.

Hedge:

The B2L box informs Bet Mover of the % return on stake that you wish the corresponding lay bet to deliver, if matched in-play. The lay bet is placed at the appropriate price point. In the above example a £10 stake would return a £10 profit - 100% return on stake.

The L2B box informs Bet Mover of the % return on stake that you wish the corresponding back bet to deliver, if matched in-play. The back bet is placed at the appropriate price point. In the above example a £10 stake would return a £10 profit - 100% return on stake.

Cash Out:

The cash out button shows the estimate of the P&L across the market should you wish to take it.

Clicking this button will perform cash-outs on all individual runners with unbalanced back and lay bets.

Options:

Confirm Bets - Requires to confirm your bet choice before they are ordered.

Lay Target Liability - All LAY bets are ordered as liability (what you are willing to risk). PLEASE NOTE: This is a TARGET liability and is NOT guaranteed as it is based on the current odds. If you have an offset in place you may get matched at worse odds and the liability will be greater. 

Placing Bets

Simply click back or lay cells to order bets at the stakes / odds adjustment set in your settings.


If you wish to perform a B2L or L2B Hedge wager then simply click either the B2L or L2B cells and your bets will be entered into the market, in accordance with your settings.

Custom Betting Columns

Please see Betfair Settings for details of all these settings

Here, I've changed my custom columns to show fixed prices for the 3rd column and a zero offset from the opposite side for the second columns:

Please see Table Layouts as learn how to add these extra custom betting columns.

This results is this on the cards:

B3 is fixed at 2

L3 is fixed at 20

B2 is the current LAY price

L2 is the current BACK price

Clicking on any of these will order the bet at these prices.

Ordered Bets

Open (unmatched) and Complete (matched) bets show above the race list.

Complete Bets

Completed bets can be shown individually or price averaged per horse / bet side (back or lay).

Individually (not averaged)

Averaged bets sum the stake and average the odds (as if it were just 1 bet) to take up less room:

Open Bets

Open (unmatched) bets can be amended.

The size (stake) and the price (odds) of each bet can be altered (both at the same time if needed). To submit the changes, click 'Actions', then 'Update'

The bet can also be:

Killed (cancelled)

Filled (matched at current the exchange price)

In Play persistence changed to: cancel, keep or to take BSP. The current persistence is highlighted in blue.
