Project Description

The job is to create a program that scrapes data from a website at regular intervals and present that data in chart and graph form.

The website in question is a sports betting website. On this website the prices, or "odds" of football teams will be displayed. The aim is to track changes in the movements of these prices over time.

After collecting the data (every 5 minutes), the data is to be presented in a format which is easy to read. First, a table showing the time in one column and the price in the other (most of the time the prices will not even change). And secondly, a graph showing the price on the Y axis against time on the X axis

Here is the website page that I would like you to scrape data from:

For example: you can see Bayern Munchen has a handicap of -0.5 and the price is 1.790. Chelsea has a handicap of +0.5 and the price is [url removed, login to view]

All I require that the prices for Bayern Munchen and Chelsea are monitored every 5 minutes between a certain time period (probably a 12 hour period) and the data recorded as mentioned.

If we do proceed with this, we will be repeating for many, many games and using different websites.

But for now, in order to see that you can perform this task, could you quote a price for the single task of collecting data for this one football match on this one website
