smartbet.io is the first and most popular betting automation platform with more than 2 million picks and 16 million orders processed since its inception in 2015.
Each pick that is submitted in smartbet.io is instantly processed and the resulting bet orders are sent to authorized following bots. Depending on the availability of target book automation and user settings they will be either automatically executed or left to the user to act upon.
Advantages of using smartbet.io for distributing picks to followers over using conventional methods include:
Smartbet.io supports different pick submission methods suited for both manual picks and picks generated automatically by 3rd party applications. With the term "manual picks", we mean picks that are manually selected by a human in the "traditional" sense of a tipster. Automatically generated picks, on the other hand, are picks that are generated by 3rd party applications like an application that scans markets for value and generates accordingly picks, an algorithm that generates picks based on proprietary logic, a scraper reading external sources like websites, telegram channels, arbitrage alert services, etc.
Website pick submission is suitable for manual picks.
|Website pick submission is currently under construction. Until it is complete you can use the button "Publish a pick" in the bot for submitting Pinnacle picks. For bet365 picks you can use the method described below:
Install an English version of the Chrome browser to your PC and go to bet365.com. Change bet365 language to English and odds to decimal. It is not necessary to login to bet365.
Now you require only 2 steps to submit a pick and the whole process takes less than 1 second:
1. Load a selection to your slip.
The page can be saved by right-clicking anywhere on the pager, then selecting "Save as...", then selecting the folder that you want to save the page in.
To make saving pages fast, you should use keyboard shortcuts:
The first time it will take more time because you will need to manually locate the folder "savedbookpages" in step 2 before hitting Enter in step 3. But after the first save, the browser will remember the folder, so only steps 1 and 3 are needed. Make sure that the "type" of save is "complete webpage".
The POST method is the recommended method for automatically generated picks. Your application should use the HTTP POST method to send the generated picks to smartbet.io. For a detailed description of the POST method please see https://smartbet.io/faqs/view/36/how-can-i-submit-picks-with-the-post-method
The EMAIL method is suitable for automatically generated picks. It is advised that newer applications use the POST method, as it is both faster and more reliable. For a detailed description of the EMAIL method please see https://smartbet.io/faqs/view/37/how-can-i-submit-picks-with-the-email-method
Regardless of the method used, received picks are instantly processed and the corresponding orders are distributed to the following bots according to the source owner's settings. Order execution results by following bots are available in real-time in picks & orders. Depending on the order execution results the pick may or may not be recorded in the source owner's pick records, in accordance with smartbet.io's pick verification model which is described in https://smartbet.io/faqs/view/25/how-does-smartbet-io-s-pick-verification-work
The EMAIL method is suitable for submitting picks that are automatically generated by 3rd party applications. It can also be used for manual picks, however it is not practical for manual use. It has been succeeded by the POST method which should be used by newer applications as it is both faster and more reliable.
To submit picks by email you will need to send emails to firstname.lastname@example.org from the email address that you have registered in your smartbet.io account. A pick must be written in plain text in the message's body using the syntax below:
