Good afternoon everybody.
I was wanting to know if it was possible for the following to be achieved:

1) To place a back bet of £1.25 on the Over 1.5 goals market at 0-0 and when they as been a shot on target?
2) When the first bet as been matched to then place 3 further bets into the Over 1.5 goals market at 25 tick increments and for those bets to be kept in the market?
3) Then when a goal is scored for the Over 1.5 goals market to be greened up?
4) If no goal is scored at the 70th minute then for that to be greened up?

I am basically wanting to place 4 back bets into the Over 1.5 goals market. The first one to be placed when there as been a shot on target and the remaining 3 bets to be placed each at 25 tick increments from the first bet going in.
For example you are watching Man City vs Man Utd and in 10 minutes Man City hit the crossbar this is classed as a shot on target. Bet Angel then fires into the Over 1.5 goals market a bet of £1.25 at odds of 1.40. This is then followed by 3 further bets at 25 tick increments of 1.65, 1.90 and 2.16 (rounded up).
If there is a goal then you are matched at least once depending on the when the first goal is scored. This is then followed by greening up for a profit irrespective of if another goal goes in or not.
If there is no goals in the match up to and including the 70th minute then Bet Angel greens out for a loss.

I do believe that using some pre-knowledge of football matches that a strategy like this would be workable.
I am just struggling with adding this as an automation.
Thank You.

Steps 2-4 are straight forward enough to set up, but the shots on target data can't be retrieved from Betfairs API so Bet Angel's automation can't test for this.

If its essential to have SOT data then you'd have to go down the Excel route and create and run your automation from that as you'll then be free to import your shots on target data from any source of your choice - then just connect Excel to Bet Angel to trigger the bets when required

Thanks Dallas.
How would I set up rules 2 to 4 using the automation of Bet Angel. Still a learner and basically just seeing what I can and can't do.

The following blog will walk you through the steps to setup/edit a rules files
https://www.betfairtradingblog.com/betf ... tion-easy/

But I did have a template rules file already made similar to what you've asked for so just modified that slightly and you can download it below and import into your Guardian, run it in practice mode first as its untested and ensure its working as you want.

Not as planned. Maybe the lay bet time needs adjusting.

Looks like i forgot to flip one of the conditions (it was adapted from a unders rule) so just needs the first condition on the 'Green up if goal' rule changing to;

lay price
is less than
lay price
minus 15 ticks
