Betfair bots and laying traps that won
Today we propose and analyse another betting strategy often available in Betfair bots. The idea of this betting strategy is to wait until a favourite (in horse racing) or a trap (in greyhounds) hits certain number of wins in a row, then lay this trap or favourite. Another variation is to wait until a favourite loses several times in a row, then place a back bet on it. This strategy supposes that the same selection cannot win or lose again and again many times or at least the chance of this is small. For horse racing the strategy usually uses 1st favourite as selection. We will show you how to set this betting strategy up in 5starbot Betfair bot.
We will bet on greyhounds, placing lay bets on 1st trap when after it hits 2 winners in a row. We will attempt to place only one lay bet in the bot, then wait until next 2 winners in a row and so on. Below are options we use.
We enable the whole feature to make it active. We also tell the Betfair bot to be ‘Currently suspended’ from the start because we don’t place bets until it hits 2 winners in a row. Then we want ‘Suspend by meeting’ to count winners for each meeting (course) name separately, since it is more likely that the same trap or favourite wins twice on different meetings.
The bot has to ‘Resume (start) betting after’ 2 WON consequent bets. The bot has to ‘Suspend betting after’ 1 bet with ANY outcome, because we want to place only 1 lay bet and then wait until another 2 winners in a row.
In the 5star Betfair bot (or any other Betfair bot) we also need to load greyhound races with 1st Trap as selection. Actually you can choose any other trap number because it doesn’t have any difference. What matters is that certain trap should win twice. Also we need to tell the bot to place lay bets. To do that select a lay staking plan, for example, Lay Fixed Liability or Lay Level Stakes.
It is up to you to play with above parameters. For example, you can choose to place lay bet after 3 consecutive winners. Or to place Back bet after 2 consecutive losers. In the last case, change ‘Resume betting after’ from WON to LOST and change your staking plan to one that places Back bets.
