Hi Guys

is there a way of taking the pre-match favorite and backing them if they go a set down,
I am having a mental block on how i would set this.

Any help greatly appreciated

Hi Gavin,

At strategy "Edit" form tick option to use favorite positions from before in play.

Then set strategy to bet on player one by using "Selection conditions->Bet type by RUNNER position" rule, set it to Back first runner by position.

Use "Selection conditions->Selections filter" and set it to allow betting only on 1st favorite.

Then use tennis rule to check for set score 0:1.

This will work for first player only. For second player you will need to create second strategy that will bet on runner by position 2 and check score 1:0.

Both strategies should be set to bet on match odds market.

Please test it in simulation mode.

Sure, you can use "Market conditions->Min/max REQUIRED price for selection" and set it to check prices from before in play for runner by position 1 (for first strategy that is set to bet on first player).
