    Looking for an odds api/feed provider

    I've built a custom software to analyze football odds and output me where the value is (and also arbs). I am using an odd API provider but I am not yet 100% satisfied with them as they frequently have persistent incorrect odds in some matches.

    I did google a lot and found several providers but they either are ridiculously expensive (on the 1 000€ plus per month) or their update frequency is very slow or they don't have odds from bookmakers I am interested in.

    What I look for is an odds api/feed with:

    • Pre match odds updated every 5min or less. Live odds is a plus but must be updated more frequently
    • Support for Betfair, Matchbook and Pinnacle - more sharper books are welcome
    • At least support for the main European bookmakers. For example (at least some of the following) Bet365, WilliamHill, bwin, Dafabet, Marathon, Unibet, BetVictor, Tipico, Interwetten, Betway, Betstars, Skybet, ComeOn, MrGreen, TonyBet, xtip, cashpoint, 10bet, 888sport, bethard, bet-at-home, etc...
    • At least with Football odds


    Do you guys know any provider that I can work with? If you don't want to talk openly about it feel free to send me a private message.

    I did contact them and their API/feed is not targeted to individuals like me so their price is on the thousands per month. Sadly, they do not support europeans bookmakers.

    I used them before but sadly they only have US bookmakers and no european bookmakers apart Pinnacle. Their supported number of bookmakers is very small...

    Hello,

    maybe this provider is something for you, but I have no experience with them.

    Have you tried reaching out to the specific bookmakers? Many times you can sign up as an affiliate and get their API that way.

    Is rebelbetting and other sites not already doing this pretty cheaply? Doing what you want is the easy part, you need to think a lot about how to get round the fact all your accounts will be limited very quickly placing bets that your software suggests.

    That is exactly the one I am using at the moment. It has some drawbacks so if I could find a more reliable one it would be better.

    I did thought about it but I have no website to use on the application so I don't think they will accept my application, am I right?

    Correct.

    And even if you get approved most books wont let you keep the account if you dont send affiliate traffic whilst hammering the API.

    This is what they wrote to me when I inquired them about prices:

    We usually do not have clients who use our xml feeds services for private usage - they are usually geared towards consumption by sportsbooks and even the most basic configuration (1 book, delayed) would start from $500 per month, However - if you want a great tool for tracking line moves (which you can set up with alerts via email for example) you may wish to explore our downloadable odds screen - that offers you far more books and options than a raw feed would. Are you familiar with it?

    https://secure.donbest.com/shop/desktop_pricing.html

    XML Services:
    A few points/clarifications:


    • US Sports Focus: We are primarily known as a supplier of US/North American sports - we do however offer extensive coverage for all other (pre-match) sports (see attached document)
    • Don Best Proprietary In-Play Lines: We offer industry leading 'in house' Pre-Match & In-Play lines for NFL/NHL/NBA/MLB/WNBA/NCAAB/NCAAF only - not for other sports (see below)
    • 3rd Party Pre-Match Sportsbook Lines: Don Best can offer you real-time scores and pre-match odds for all the sports and leagues you require from key industry sportsbooks. We do not offer the Bet365 xml feed (only via our Don Best Screen client) - we do however have a weighted Consensus line that offers the median line of up to 11 books - including Bet365, Pinnacle, BetCris and a selection of other books.


    All carry this in XML format that can be integrated straight into your application's backend/platform.

    Additionally, you receive the added benefit of the following:


    • Automated XML scheduling to streamline your scheduling needs
    • Proprietary game rotation IDs created by Don Best to allow for unique game identification
    • Pre/Post Sales technical support

    1- some books xml line feeds are not always up to date
    2- dont think there is a line service that supports all the books on your list
    3- if u develop your own you can scrap and add the sites u want, costs less, dont pay a monthly fee

    That is the real cost, to maintain it and ensure the data is accurate.

    It's either your time as the cost, or paying someone a lot for their time to do it.


    Not sure how important accuracy is to your plan, but I would bet dollars to donuts no free or cheap service is really reliably correct.

    Try lsports.eu
    Explain to them exactly what you want. Not sure they’ll give you a price you like but they’re more flexible than most with packages.
    Also jsonodds.com is probably too bare bones but the price is right.

    I reached out to Lsport and asked for a Bet365 pre-match odds feed. They offer them for 1000€ per month. The issue is that bookies take certain measures to protect themselves against web scraping. Unfortunately, Bet365 in particular is pretty good at this and hence the odds feeds are quite expensive.

    Lsports are rather very expensive, like Duo42 I was also quoted in the thousands per month.
    Can you link Perform? Could not find them.

    Unless you have the time or the money there is no real solution. Nowadays you have to develop everything on your own and then maintain it. Hardly worth the time, money or effort.

    As I could not find anything that would fit my needs, I decided to create my own API. I am starting with tennis and will be developing further.
    Currently supports over 50 bookmakers, like:

    Pinnacle, Bet365, Betfair, Betway, Unibet, 1xbet, William Hill, Ladbrokes, 888sport, SBOBET, Marathonbet, Dafabet, Bodog, Bovada, Tipico, BetJoe, 10BET, bet-at-home, Vbet, STS, 22bet, ComeOn, Bethard, Betvictor, LeoVegas, Expekt, 18Bet and more!

    Pre match odds are updated on average every 5min.
    Temporarily, I removed the live odds endpoint but I will be adding it back again soon.

    You can find the API here: https://rapidapi.com/BettingAPI/api/tennis-odds

    Let me know if you need more free requests to integrate with your app and I will happily credit you with more

    FYI I just added historical odds for all matches starting on the 18th August at 00h00 UTC time zone.
    I also added a few more bookmakers, making it around 90 bookmakers.

    Odds update frequency was also improved, from ~5 minutes to ~2 minutes.
    I am already working in having live odds, should be the next big feature
