Does anyone know why Betfair do have a starting price for horse racing, but don’t have one for any other big sports such as tennis, football, basketball, etc.? Would be of help to a lot I believe.

I've suggested this to them on a number of occasions, but don't seem keen on it for some reason. No idea why.

They used to have weekly files on events with how much had been matched at specific odds and whether it was in-play or pre (seperate files for horses and then all other sports combined into one)

You could roughly ascertain as to what the BSP would have been. Think it was discontinued 2016/17 with the push to people to use the JSON data files they supply.
You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post.
