When betting on live football matches people usually watch match on TV and then as the game progresses they decide what bets to place. Number of shots on/off goal, woodwork hits, offside, corners and possession percentage are one of the main statistics that effect your decision on what type of bet to place. But how many matches can you watch at same time and bet on them? One, two or three maybe, but no more than that. This is where automated bot can help you.

Bf Bot Manager V3 can be set to use football in play statistics for all available matches at Betfair and to bet on those matches only when all your conditions are satisfied. This allows you to bet on all matches without actually watching the game.

Football in play statistics are provided by third party service called Inplaytrading, this means that subscription to their service is required. Subscription to their service is not included in Bf Bot Manager subscription.


To automate your football in play betting by using in play statistics you need:
