I have a spreadsheet that lays SP bets.

The issue occurs when multiple horses have odds that meet the criteria for a lay bet. Even though the liability on any one lay SP bet is less than the balance available, when multiple SP lay bets are triggered, the 'Exposure_or_Available_Balance_Exceeded' error message can be generated for each bet.

Here is a hypothetical example:

Available Bankroll: £2,500

Horse 1 SP odds: 1000; SP lay bet stake: £2; liability: £1,998
Horse 2 SP odds: 1000; SP lay bet stake: £2; liability: £1,998
Horse 3 SP odds: 750; SP lay bet stake: £2; liability: £1,498
Horse 4 SP odds: 500; SP lay bet stake: £2; liability: £998
Horse 5 SP odds: 300; SP lay bet stake: £2; liability: £598

If each bet was placed individually, there would be no problem. However, because all bets are placed synchronously as SP bets, the above error message results. As a result, none of the SP lay bets are placed.

If there a workaround to this?

Sports betting software from Gruss Software

The strength of Gruss Software is that it’s been designed by one of you, a frustrated sports punter, and then developed by listening to dozens of like-minded enthusiasts.

Gruss is owned and run by brothers Gary and Mark Russell. Gary discovered Betfair in 2004 and soon realised that using bespoke software to place bets was much more efficient than merely placing them through the website.

Gary built his own software and then enhanced its features after trialling it through other Betfair users and reacting to their improvement ideas, something that still happens today.

He started making a small monthly charge so he could work on it full-time and then recruited Mark to help develop the products and Gruss Software was born.

We think it’s the best of its kind and so do a lot of our customers. But you can never stand still in this game and we’ll continue to improve the software if any more great ideas emerge.
