    It took longer than I had hoped, so I just turned it on and hope everything is OK

Free Scraping Tool


Hi Guys,

I'm new to the forum, but I'm very happy I found it. I developed a free betting tool in R (a statistical programming language- but no programming knowledge is needed). You need to install R and the dependent packages. You'll also need a Betfair API key (get a free delayed app key, DON'T PAY £299). More detailed instructions can be found in the link below.

The program scrapes bookie prices from Oddschecker and matches them with the same back and lay prices on the Betfair exchange. So you can compare bookies odds directly with the exchange in real time. It's currently only available for horse racing and tennis. Try it out and let me know if you have any requests or any issues getting set up
