I want a simple program which grabs the odds for the upcoming sport events from two bookmaker sites: betfair.com and bodog.com, and exports them in an excel cartel for comparison. Attached the Excel cartel I would want to see.
The software should have a "refresh button", in order to refresh the odds and sport events.
Don't know anything about programming, but it shouldn't be so hard to do.
The biggest problem should be to let the software understand that certain odds are referred to the same event, because it happens that the team names or player names are written somewhat different.
For what concerns the odds, you'll see that the Bodog odds will appear like +220, -160, +560, -105, +1200, etc (US format), while the Betfair ones are like 1.12, 2.36, 3.65, etc (EU format).
While Bodog has only one odd for every possible result, Betfair has two kinds of odds, because at Betfair you can Back (light blue columns) and Lay (pink columns). I want the software to grab the lowest pink odd.
I would like to have someone available for updates, because I could change bookmaker, and because the bookmakers often change their website interface.
My suggestion is visit Bodog and Betfair, look at the attached file, and bid!!
