Lay systems and Betfair prices

Hi guys,

Just wanted to see if there has been any update on including lay systems with Betfair pricing in the systems builder?



We can confirm that Betfair Prices and dedicated Lay betting systems have been committed to in our development plans. It is our hope to have this implemented prior to the end of this calendar year. Pricing will incorporate Betfair SP and factor in a commission rate.

$H1T.....I'm 60yo, and wouldn't have a clue what you guys are talking about.
Give me a pen and paper any day....LOL.
Hopefully, all our selections do the right thing for us.

Hi bootrouse;when you say the "price ranked horses" give you difficulty is it working out which selections may or may not be in the systems price range? As you subscribe to a couple of my systems which have minimum price criteria I thought offering my approach may help.
I take the fixed price on Bet 365 at 9am [when I generally place my bets] as the only price guide so if the system states a price above $8 then $8.50 fixed must be the minimum available.I place half my stake at fixed and the other half best tote.I don't worry about price firming or blowing;if a winner is missed so be it ,it's the disciplined approach that counts.
One other observation I would make is prefer a system with at least 18 months history[a lot longer is preferable] as many fly high for a few months before running out of steam.
Cheers Doug

Odds errors on favourites

I think there are more issues on 16 June 2017.

Examples include:

Toowoomba R5 #4 Atouchmore $57.40 when it should be $3.1
Toowoomba R7 #5 Tarhelm $7.30 when it should be $1.70
Dubbo R7 #3 Bee Double Bee $19.1 when it should be $4.60

There are more but what can one do?

Price Qualifiers

Since first published what is the PoT% of this system?

So this system is still in its infancy but is in profit since going ‘live’. I know they say that publish/creation date is important and of course to see consistent results pre and post creation would be very reassuring, particularly over long periods of time. Having said that, all of my sports systems are based on the 5 previous season’s results for a particular league, so a system I have created for an upcoming season is essentially based off statistical hypothesis. Some tank, some do as expected and some excel. All bettors should have a diverse portfolio anyways.

How has it performed 2012– present?

For me personally, the amount of the past that we can see for this system doesn’t suit my preferences. That’s simply because I go by 5 previous years/seasons worth of results. It's still not always a winning angle and I would miss out on opportunities because of this outlook. I’m in no way downplaying or contradicting Formulator’s ability. He clearly has so many great ideas for different profitable systems. Formulator may well have discovered a fresh opportunity in the way the bookies do business and I truly I hope the forecasts for this system continue.

What do understand by the term 'statistical significance'?

When I’m creating systems for sports, it’s calculated from the previous 5 seasons of that particular league. I’m looking for profitability from at least 4 of 5 seasons as there will always be an anomaly season (it could be the upcoming season). If there is profit but it is decreasing in each progressing season, the bookies might be changing their angle so that’s a red light. If in each progressive season there are a similar amount of bets, win rate, and profits (or increasing), then I get excited. For my sports systems, statistical significance is time (5 year blocks) rather than number of bets (although a consistent number of bets each season is desirable). Without googling it though, I’m sure statistical significance also includes number of bets over time perhaps? I’m sure a system with 5,000 bets over 5 years (evenly spread, not one single year supporting the whole period), returning a POT of say %10 would encompass a dataset of statistical significance?

I think I understand where you are coming from EV. I know I'm using language like 'amazing', and rightly so in certain context, like I said it's all down to preference. All betting has an element of risk anyways. Some higher risk pays off quickly, lower risk pay can pay off slowly. At the end of the day all risk can tank.
