As mentioned previously, the next step after launching the detailed live trends for live matches was to create a unique method for calculating pressure and current momentum. This is now live and will be monitored and updates as we learn new things from the data we are seeing.
This is the start of a deeper set of tools for looking into pressure and momentum on live fixtures. You can see the trend for in-play data, like attacks, dangerous attacks, shots, corners, and more.
I have developed a completely new way of finding fixtures on OddAlerts. From anywhere on the site, you can now type into the search bar to find upcoming games. Try searching for the team name, or even the league you're interested in. There's a lot more coming here, but this is a great starting point.
I will be testing the 'Last 25' button on more leagues this week, with a view to having it fully supported as soon as possible. This will be a massive help for those leagues just getting underway, like in Norway, Sweden, Finland, and more. When looking at the last 25 games, it will show you the fixtures from all competitions.
I would like to thank everyone that has used OddAlerts over the past 12 months. Starting the site during the pandemic was a risk, but I knew that I would ultimately regret not taking action on an idea that had been eating away at me for a couple of years. From the first day, right up until this very moment, the feedback and support has been incredible. The community is probably one of the things I am most proud of when it comes to OddAlerts. It’s full of people willing to share, learn and not take themselves too seriously. I love that.
Thanks to James for suggesting this after noticing more markets becoming available in Australia recently. When looking at the fixture feed, you will now see a number where the odds indicator used to be. This is the number of markets currently open on Bet365.
A key update to the way filters are tracked, and league exclusion works. Previously, automatic league exclusion would work great if you created a filter right now, and then looked forward from that moment. What started to happen, however, is that leagues that later dropped below your settings would then be excluded from the overall filter tracking. That's not the way it should work, so I have added the ability for the filter to track the progress of a league whislt it's calculating the overall hit rate of your filter. This way, we can include the fixtures that would have come up for you, based on the success of that league at the time that fixture was played. Thanks to everyone for the amazing feedback. The filters were technically working as they should, but this will give everyone better results and ultimately more confidence when it comes to betting based on filters.
From Monday onwards I'll be working on some long-due improvements to filters and the way they are tracked, including a better system for managing leagues. This Sunday I was able to re-write the majority of the tracking, and it's now much faster. This needed to be done with all the additional data and historical fixtures that have been added recently.
Previously, the Bet Builder would simply look at the last 5, 6, and 10 games. Overall. Now, it will look at the last 5 games played at home, the last 5 played away, and so on. This has already brought some amazing games forward!
Trends is a new section within the fixtures that will allow you to compare stats between two teams, as well as seeing an overview of totals across the season so far.
An incredible reaction to the new page, and I'm excited to see where it can go in the future. I have made some changes based on initial feedback and my own thoughts on the the design. First, the bet slip is now contained in the header, and can be accessed and viewed at anytime. The fixtures now show the kick-off time, and are divided by date. More fixtures are now bring brought in too, previously there was a limit of 20 per market.
A new, experimental page on OddAlerts that will act as another way of quickly finding potentially profitable fixtures. The page will return a set of fixtures that are qualified for the following markets: Home Win, Away Win, BTTS, +2.5 Goals, +1.5 Goals. As I say, this is a little experiment so I'm excited to see what you all think of it.
A major update to the filters in the way of 20+ new rules. This will allow for even deeper filters. All of the stats in the previous update can now be used as filter rules.
Software development is like constantly travelling up and down hill, only in this context, going 'down hill' is not a bad thing. It's the fun part. The quick and constant iterations and updates happen on the way down the hill! The work I have been doing in the last couple of weeks has taken us up that hill. Tough, much-needed work on the database to allow new filter rules and historical seasons to be added with much more flexibility. Adding previous seasons and data was always possible, but having it work the way I wanted with filters was the tricky part, and a lot of the current code needed to be rewritten. These tasks are the things you don't see in the background that makes OddAlerts tick. It will allow for more features and interesting additions to be added. We have to go up hill to enjoy the ride down, and that ride starts here!
Lots of little things added and/or fixed today, and I believe the changes to the Explore page will help a lot of you who were seeing plenty of the same filters over and over again. Those that are clones will no longer be included, and you can now filter for the number of fixtures found, or if the filter has excluded leagues or not.
Two things I have been wanting to launch for a while, and both highly requested. The recommended alert button on the value script page will set an alert on all game for that group. As an example, clicking it for the 1H Goals Likely group will set an alert on all games for +0.5 1H Goals Hitting 2.00. You can now view the top-performing filters via the filters page. More to come in this area soon.
I have refactored the caching of filters so that when you exclude a league, you will not have to clear the cache. Now, the only time the cache will be cleared on your filter is when you change the settings, like adding rules or desired outcomes.
If you have excluded a league from your filter results, it will now also be excluded from your upcoming fixtures when viewing that specific filter. I have removed the abiliy to favourite a game from the fixture, instead introducing a new button to the feed.
When viewing any fixture feed (and on Desktop), simply hit 1 for Stats, 2 for Live Stats, and 3 for Odds (or Live Odds if a game is in-play).
The referee page will now show referees that have upcoming fixtures AND the card markets are available on Bet365. If there is no upcoming fixtures with card markets available, it will show a list of referees with the highest cards per game averages, with all officials taking charge of 5 or more games to be included.
When viewing filter results, you will be told if any games have been excluded. If this happens, it will be because of lack of data. Let's say, for example, your filter has a desired outcome of +0.5 First-Half Goals. There are certain leagues that will only have FT results, and some that will get HT results 1/2 days after the match has finished. This is completely normal for these obscure leagues but it's important to build the filters in a way that not only accommodates this but let's you know exactly what's going on in the background.
A very exciting update that will lead to further exciting features in the coming days and weeks. As of Sunday 24th January, 'Peak Odds' are now being tracked for every single game that appears on Bet365. This is no small task, so it's important to slowly build features based around this into the site. Today, if you click into any game that has finished, you will see the 'Peak Odds' table.
The biggest update to the filter creation tool since it launched. You can now set multiple desired outcomes to your filters, as well as setting them to 'Public'. This is turned off by default. If your filter is public, it will be discoverable by other OddAlerts Pro users in upcoming features and pages.
I took a break from the filter to switch to something completely new, and decided on putting this referee page up. It's been on my mind for a long time and I have some great features that I will be building into it in the near future. Consider this a v1 for this page, with plenty more coming in the next week or so.
I have removed the 'Add Stats' button on the stats scroller when you're viewing one of the standard/default options. I think a few people were confused by this, so it now appears on your own default stat scroller.
Bet365 often replaces the +0.5 Team Goals market for the Team Clean Sheet market. I have now put something in place so that no matter which is there, you will get an alert if you have one set for +0.5 Goals. Previously, there was no support for the Clean Sheet odds.
There is a lot more coming in terms of viewing data for filters, but for now I just wanted to give you something. Showing the last 10 fixtures recorded for your filter will at least give you an idea of the types of games and competitions that are working.
There's not much to see yet, although the public share pages for your filters will now show you the amount of games tracked with the amount of wins and the overall hit rate. The work pushed in this update is mostly back-end work that will power the automated filter tracking going forward.
Initially, whe clicking into the Last 5 on a fixture, it would take the last 5 games they had played, and then filter for home, away or overall results. This is why you would see 3 played, it meant that they had played 3 games at home during the last 5 games total. I have now changed this to be what most would have expected. So now you will see the last 5 they played at home, overall and away. The same goes for last 6 and last 10 games too.
This has been a highly requested feature for a long time, so I'm glad to finally ship it this year! Right now, it's available inside each fixture, but the next step will be to implement it into the filters and also into the stat scrollers. As for Pro users winning a year of OddAlerts Pro, stay tuned to Twitter!
The latter on that list will save a lot of time for many users. You must have a filter loaded to see the 'Select All' button.
Desktop users now have more space for doing what matters most, viewing stats and setting alerts. I have really interesting plans for what comes next with this added real estate, so stay tuned. Also, you can now quickly duplicate one of your current filters. This is great for quickly adapting an existing strategy.
Today I took the time to add new stats to the site, based on feedback from you all on Twitter. Those stats are:
This Tweet lead to a new discovery into how some users are using OddAlerts. Some are setting wild alerts just in order to get a notification at a certain time. Now, you can do this properly, with In-Play Updates. Set the time you would like to be notified, and you'll get a summary sent to Telegram.
After all of the features and improvements launched during the first 12 days of December, we are now looking at v2 of OddAlerts. I have plenty of features planned for the coming weeks and months and I can't wait for you to start using them. As always, keep your feedback coming.
Thank you all so much for being on this crazy sprint with me. Day 12 is here, and it brings many smaller improvements!
You have all been great, so you're getting this one earlier today. Not just that, I couldn't keep this to myself all day. Introducing Dynamic Stats on Alerts. Set an alert on BTTS? Your alert will contain the stats for BTTS, Goals Scored, and more.
I've been asked a few times to share my filter with users on Twitter. So I'll take a screenshot and sent it over, but that really isn't the best way to do that, is it? You can now share filters with anyone and–if they're logged in, and Pro–they can install it with a single click.
I've added more default options to the new stat scroller selection, and finally, you can add alerts for the full line when it comes to first-half corners. The number of corners will now appear on your alert, should it be about corners.
Stats Scrollers! This is the biggest update since it launched, and it's a good one. I have noticed myself frustrated often, tweaking them with almost every filter I load. Well, not anymore. You can now change the stats scroller with a single click. I'll be adding more defaults in the coming days.
Today brings some exciting new stats. Now the stats alone might not be great, but the ability to include them in your filters and stats scrollers certainly is. Those stats are: Goal Difference, 35-45 Mins Goal %, 80-90 Mins Goal %.
Sunday, the day of rest... For most. I'll be announcing this at 18:00 but if you're using the site earlier, you will have no doubt stumbled across the new feed toggles that allow you to view games with just card or corner markets supported.
As a Saturday treat, this feature is getting released earlier in the day. You can now save games to a favourites list. This works just as you would expect it to and will sit at the top of the fixture feed. You can add fixtures to this list by going into them and tapping the star.
View #12DaysOfFeatures on Twitter. I'm happy to launch something that should have really been included on the site from day 1, and that's results for both teams. You can now view this from the fixture, inside the stats section. The fixture element itself will soon be getting a makeover after all these new stats.
View #12DaysOfFeatures on Twitter. Today brings new stats to the site, with a focus on further-improving the arsenal on offer for first-half corner betting. You can now view the % of games that have seen a corner in the 35-45th minute and the 80-90th minute. You can view the home, away or overall percentage as well as including this in your stats scroller and adding it as a rule within your filters. Also, you can now filter for the % of games a team was winning, drawing or losing at HT. Small bug fixes.
View #12DaysOfFeatures on Twitter. Today I am delighted to improve the functionality of the filters by allowing rules to be created on the probability of outcomes per fixture. As an example, you can filter for all fixtures with a 'Home Win' probability of 70% or more. Combining this with existing filter settings is very powerful.
Not sure what this is all about? You can see the launch video here. Today I am delighted to bring Goal Timings to the site, in a similar fashion to Corner Timings. I have also improved the design slightly, and set the default number to be a %, so you can see where the goals or corners are happening most. You can now filter for Peak Goal Time and Peak Corner Time, as well as +7.5 - +9.5 Corner percentages with filters.
More data is now available for betting on Corners, including Geometric Mean Corner Time. In mathematics, the geometric mean is a mean or average, which indicates the central tendency or typical value of a set of numbers by using the product of their values. Stay tuned on Twitter today for a special announcement.
HT Scores now show in the feed. Corner Timings has been improved. Use 'FRIDAY' for 20% off your first month. Limited spaces.
Corning Timings: This is a beautiful sight. Where corners by half is supported, you will now be able to view a chart of the corner timings. This feature will be free until Saturday 28th November.

Inline Cards: When viewing live fixtures, you will clearly be able to see if there's been a red card, and how many yellow cards.
Smarter Stats: When you open a game with less than 10 games played, the stats will default to overall. You can still quickly toggle this to fit you needs.
BTTS & +2.5 Goals: This stat has been added around the site, including per fixtue, on the feed and as a customisable stat on both the stats scrollers and your filter rules.
Filters: Clean Sheet % Added. 2H Goals (+0.5, +1.5 %) Added.

Fixture Feed: Toggling to view live stats will now toggle it for all fixtures on the feed. I will monitor the performance of this over the next few days.
Filters: Filters will now show games in-play.
Filters! I have been working on this all week, tweaking designs and getting your feedback. I'm finally happy enough to launch this v1 of filters, an incredibly powerful way to find potentially profitable games for setting alerts or betting in-play.
Corner Stats by Half
Predictability & Probability This data is in-part used for the value script. League predictability is based on the following markets: HFT Result, BTTS, Over/Under, and Correct Score. The competition performance tracks the predictions on that league, based on probability, over the last 100 games played. Look out for the bolt icon from the fixture feed. This will indicate that a fixture has probability data.
LIVE Stats: Stats for live fixtures will now appear in the feed, with the option to toggle between pre-match and live stats.
Improved UI: Mobile users will now see more of the stats they care about, with the scroller being moved to below the title and information of the fixture. I was willing to compromise on the vertical space for this improvement.
Odds-Only Fixture Feed Setting
Odds Fetching Refined
League Positions Return to Feed
A wealth of stats have been added as options to the stats-scroller, and it's now available for free users!
Selected stats will now update without having to refresh the page. I have also fixed some bugs that were found. Thanks to those that got in touch with me to let me know.
You can now edit the stats that you see in the new fixture previews. This is really powerful, and will allow you to mix and match the stats you like for the markets you bet on often. As a way of saying thankyou to Pro users, they will get this first.
New Fixture UI for Value Page and Planner
Added Played to Stat Glances
Added Caching to Stat Glances
Betting Ordering of Live Fixtures
Inline Stats on Fixture Feed: This is something I have wanted to build into the site for a while, but it needed to be done right. This is a good start.

More updates will be coming to the fixture feed, and to the stats section within the fixtures from Monday onwards.

You can view a demo here.

Stats Section No Longer Reloads w/ Each Visit
League Positions Added to Feed
League Rankings for Feed
New Value Script Group: I have been profiting from this market for the past ~12 months, more pre-covid, but I have been waiting to implement it into the script and I am delighted to finally launch it. I will be monitoring the performance over the weekend and making subtle tweaks, as with all groups. Welcome to the Value page, Half with Most Goals: 2nd Half.
Alerts for Specials: You can now set availability alerts for the Specials tab on Bet365.
Smarter UI: The availability section now knows which markets are already available and will disable them from selection.
Specific Market Alerts: Card market availability alerts launched last week and the initial feedback was that users wanted to be alerts on specific markets, as Bet365 would often add a couple of card markets, but not the one they really wanted. Now, you can select the markets you are waiting for. You will be sent an alert when each drops on Bet365.
Alert Creation Improvement: You can now set up your alert settings and navigate to other panels and fixtures without those settings resetting.
Refined Fixtures on Feed: Due to the sheer number of leagues supported, there will always be fixtures that have do not support live-score or odds. Livescore is not available for these games anywhere, so I am putting in some filters to remove them from the feed, especially when viewing all games sorted by time.
Bookmaker Settings: You can now add your preferred bookmaker in you settings. This will include a link to that bookmaker with every alert sent, saving you time when it comes to placing your bet. This will also allow smarter customisation of the platform, including showing odds from this bookmaker (if available) by default.
Value Bets Algorithm Update
Insane Speed Improvement on Fixtures By Time
Value Page UI Improvements
Card Availability Alerts
Improved UI for Creating Basic Alerts
Bet365 Links: From alert to Bet365 in a matter of seconds. On desktop, this link will take you to the specific game, on mobile (currently) it will open up the app on the in-play section. I have spoke to Bet365 and they are working in more deep-links into their new app. Pro users only.
Keyboard Shortcuts: Searching is a breeze. Hit CTRL + F, type and then hit enter. Repeat as much as you like. Thanks for the feedback on Twitter.
Search! You can now search through all of the fixtures on OddAlerts from the Fixture Feed.
+1.5 Goals and +9.5 Corners Added to Value Page
Speed Improvements for Fixture Feed
Fixture Feed Update: The biggest update to the feed since it launched. FT Results have now been turned off by default. You can toggle them in the new settings dropdown. You will also notice a new LIVE toggle. Tap it. I completely reworked the way fixtures are pulled into the feed, making it much faster.
More Days Added: You can now view 6 days ahead, great for setting availability alerts.
Improved Odds (Pre-Match) Update Frequency
Value Page: Cancelled or PSTP fixtures will no longer appear.
Routing Fix: Direct links to fixtures would not work if the team name contained special characters. Fixed.

Having a paid tier of users will unlock a lot of development time and potential for me.

Ability to Create Alerts (Regardless of Availability)
Fixed Bugs with Decimal Places Not Appearing

You will now be able to place in-play alerts on almost every game you see. If you see it on Bet365, the chances are you can use OddAlerts to set alerts for it. This new data source will unlock a massive amount of potential for OddAlerts users.

Fixture Feed UI Improvements: When you sort the feed by countries, the fixtures will now be hidden until you click on a country to open it. For those that have been with OddAlerts for the full ride, you will know that this is how things initially were. I thought it was a lot of clicking in and out of the leagues, but now I feel that I prefer that over the endless scrolling as more and more games are being played. When you sort the feed by time, or by those games that are live, you will see everything by default.
Alert Limits: I have decided to limit each user to 3 alerts per game. Based on my research, not many users set more than two alerts on any one game. I am doing this so I can better monitor and improve the performance of the site. This update also includes a new UI element for giving visual feedback when you save, delete or edit anything on the site.
UI Improvements: The position of your scroll will no longer be lost when you open a game on mobile. Thanks to @keepitkicking on Twitter for this one.
In-Play Alerts: A lot has gone into this and I am delighted to finally launch in-play alerts. Follow the score, the stats and the odds before setting your alerts. There are many smaller improvements as part of this update, so be sure to check out Twitter and YouTube for the full update.
Added Home or Away Win to Result Alerts
Improved Odds Recognition for Creating Alerts
Improved Performance for Alerts
Presets Added: You can now save alert settings as presets and use them with a single click on fixtures.
Closing Lines: Popular with full-time gamblers, you can now check the closing lines of any game that supports live-odds. Please, let me know if you experience anythign abnormal here. This is very much a WIP.
LET THERE BE ODDS: You can now view odds from a huge list of bookmakers. The alert slip is also now much smarter in terms of knowing the current odds.
One Click Copying of Alerts: From the Fixture widget, you can now copy alerts from other users with the click of a button. Tap into the Alert section and view the list of alerts for that game. I plan on giving some love to the /alerts page soon, too, but first my focus is on bringing in-play alerts and stats to the system.
Odds & Feed for Fixtures: You can now view all the odds for a game in a single place, as well as all of the alerts for that particular game. Coming really soon will be the ability to copy those alerts with a single click.
New Alert Setting UI: I have listened to the feedback and looked at the most popular stats and alert types and restructured the way alerts are set. No more scrolling through all those markets and times on mobile. This new style also allows for stats and other data to appear under each section.
First Half Goals: I have added FH Goals to the live odds support. This has been requested by many of you, so I am really excited to see how you use it. The odds will always start at 1.60 for now until I get the pre-match odds loaded.
Filters and Sorting on Fixture Page
Scoreline Now Shows on Alerts Page
Account Management: Not a glamorous update, but something that needed doing sooner or later. Users can now reset passwords, manage account settings and more from inside the new settings page.
Shared Alerts: You can now view other alerts from other users via the Alerts page. See something you like? Tap on the alert to open the fixture without leaving the page. Stay tuned as there will be more features added here during 4.x of OddAlerts.

Improved Telegram API Implementation
Bug & Data Fixes
Alert Presets: You can now set alerts with the click of a button based on popular settings, such as No Early Corners or First Half Goals. Get in touch if you would like to suggest any presets.
UI Improvements: Your alerts are now grouped by date and according to your timezone. Country flags have also been added to the fixture feed.
Timezones: Users can now change the timezone on OddAlerts.
Bug Fixes: Fixed a bug effecting South Korean fixtures and alerts.
Welcome to OddAlerts. Plenty of work has gone into this product before v0.1, but this page will act as a base going forward from this moment. If you have feedback, please get in touch.
