Interpreting the information displayed
Matcha displaying information on Sportsbet racing page
When you open a bookmakers horse racing page through Matcha an extra display line will appear underneath the horse information.
Copying the stake required for Betfair
Matcha displays the amount you need to stake on Betfair to get an equal return regardless of whether the horse wins or loses.
If you click the coloured information of the horse that you are betting on then the correct lay stake will be copied in to your computer’s clipboard. So when you go to Lay the horse at Betfair you simply need to press ctrl+v (command +v when on a Mac) when entering your lay stake.
Load Bookmaker Tabs
In Matcha you can choose to display all events currently in the Matcha or to only show events and bookmakers that have promotions on in that event.
Matcha comes preloaded with 3 preconfigured profiles. Depending on which profile you choose the information on the bookmaker page displayed will be different.
Qualifier With EV
This is the default setting for a bookmaker when the race has a promotion available and we are able to calculate the Expected Value (currently for races with 2nd/3rd promotions).
Use this setting to understand the average amount you win or lose by placing a bet with a promotion
This is the default setting for a bookmaker when the race has a promotion but we are unable to calculate the Expected Value. This setting can be used to find close matches by percentage difference in odds to Betfair.
This is useful if we are unable to display the EV to find a close match to qualify for a bonus. It is also useful to find matches to complete any turnover requirements you have at a bookie.
This is the default setting for a bookmaker when the race has no promotion linked with it.
You can use this setting to highlight and calculate a good return from any bonus bets that you have.
Change the settings
To change the settings click on Matcha and then click on the cog.
You can amend the following settings:
- Commission discount – your current Betfair discount rate will be factored in to the calculations
- Default Stake – the amount you need to bet.
- Auto match – whether the extension automatically displays if the corresponding Betfair page is open.
- Set the traffic light system display boundaries. This allows you to set the trigger points for the colour change in the Matcha display.
- Edit your profiles – Here you can either amend or create an entire new row of information to be displayed on the bookmakers page. This is only recommended for advanced users.
