Evening team,

Hopefully a quick q: I am new to BA, currently doing a trial. I have been using two strategies manually in Betfair that have promise, do I have to still manually add every match ("select market") I'm looking at into BA then automate?

I cant seem to find a function / filter such as show "all games with a match odds fav <1.80" , I would need to use the "match odds" filter then select markets one by one ?

TIA

You can use the soccer tab to find football related markets, or create a market filter to find exactly those you are after
There are some examples here you could download and use as a starting point

Regarding filtering by odds criteria, Betfair won't allow this to be used as an option at the point of filtering the market, but there is a quick way of finding and removing such markets once they have been added to Guardian

The issue with that is that odds change and what's 1.81 now could be 1.79 a second after you've added it or visa versa. Much better to load up everything and have the rule decide what it's going to bet on.

A similar situation would arise if your strategy required a certain market volume and you wanted to set up your automation in the morning.

Thanks team. I found a few vids where you could search say "soccer AND match odds" - that works but I then cant select all markets and move to guardian, I still have to add markets one by one. Holding shift etc. doesnt work.

Right click on any of the matches -> Select all matches -> Add selections to guardian
