Has anyone been able to work out how to use the New Betfair Historical data website, Ive managed to download a .tar file and extracted it but its all gobbledeegoop. All I get is the .bz2 files in text file
You need to extract the bz2 file.

I think megarain once wrote a detailed post on how to open Json files in SQL in a betfair data thread.

I use excel myself so never had any need to open Json files

You can import json into excel but alot is dependant on your version of excel, just look on youtube they'll be lots of tutorials how to imort json files into your version of excel. There are even plenty of online or standalone convertors for json -> csv files out there too. No idea how big the files are and it may well be that you'd be better off using Access or some SQL database to query them

Thanks welshboy06 for scarping the site. By the way, I don't find the event time (goal, red card) in the HKJC site.

Are those info sourced elsewhere, or am I not looking at the right place? Thanks!

Hi,
Does anyone have updated data they are willing to share as per Welshboy's oiginal post?
The original data is now 2 seasons old.
Or is anybody aware of an alternative source?

Thanks in advance!

Hi all, this is a copy of my separate new thread I just wrote, but I wanted to post here anyway - since that this subforum doesn't seem to very lively.

What I I want is to analyse betfair historical data when a certain specified GOAL DIFFERENCE is achieved in a match.

For example: say I want to study matches where EITHER team was leading by 3 goals at any point - i.e. I want to look at matches where the scoreline was either 3-0, 0-3, 4-1, 1-4, 5-2, etc at some time in the match. Note: I don't care what the scoreline was specifically - just that there was a 3 goal difference. What I want to know is the time of match when this occurred, the match back/lay odds immediately after this scoreline was achieved, the names of teams involved, and also how the scoreline progressed with the relevant time/odds info (so if the scoreline changed from 3-0 to 3-1, I want to know the time and match odds at that new point).

I want this data on EVERY SINGLE MATCH that went live on betfair 24/7, say in the last several months. Essentially I want at least several thousands' games of data.

How can I find this info?
