    line history issue

    Trying to pull line history from sbr to do some analysis but obviously I'm going about it the wrong way and end up just resorting to looking at odds manually. What is the best way to scrape odds from whatever book using sbrodds?

    I still copy/paste individual games from SBR odds to Excel. I wouldn't know how to pull multiple games from 1 book in 1 go. What exactly are you looking to do?

    If you do an advanced search of just Handicapper Think Tank threads with the word "scrape" in the title, you will find a bunch of threads with instructions and some with excel code included.

    Here is one offering a tutorial https://www.sportsbookreview.com/for...-scraping.html

    Thanks Optional... I showed this to my db friend who is much better at this that I am, and he said that calling for values returned a 403 error. I did another google search and found another sbrscrape blog that is a couple years old, but there also was a recent problem in the "issues" section where someone says as of Jan 2021,

    "I suddenly got an error message in the soup_url function which was not occurring a week ago last time I used it; when scraping the url 'https://www.sportsbookreview.com/bet...?date=20210129' I get the following soup, which states the the request has been blocked:
