Soccer Stats Bot is the latest Betfair football betting software from Winning More that researches and places bets automatically.
The bot covers a range of popular football markets and can either back or lay selections. It comes with built-in staking plans and includes seven optional strategies to use.
At the beginning of our review, the team reported that the most profitable backing strategy had made £230 profit with a £1 profit target per bet over a two month period. The most profitable laying strategy had made £193 in one month.
The bot also allows you to filter matches using various parameters (16 in total) including Min Rank Difference, Current Season Goal Ratio, Minimum Matches Played and percentages of games won, lost or drawn.
After selecting the required filters the bot automatically places bets and with the unique tabbing system, up to 120 games can be bet on at once.

Update One Results
In the first part of our Soccer Stats Bot review we tested the software out using three backing and three laying strategies from the user manual. The staking plan for these strategies was martingale/recovery style. We entered the settings into the bot as they were shown in the PDF and hoped to be able to achieve similar results to those reported.
Unfortunately, it didn't work out that way and we recorded a £485.90 loss based on aiming for a target profit of £1.00 per bet.
We actually used smaller stakes (target profit of £0.10) to test the bot as there wasn't a practice mode to try it out and real money would have been at risk.
It's a good job we did this, as we found the staking to be quite volatile. Our balance had dropped to -£97.43 at one stage (£0.10 target profit) and when the bot attempted to recover from this, it started to get a bit crazy.
In one case, the bot had been ticking along with most bets having a liability of less than £1 and then suddenly it fired off a £62 back bet. Fortunately the bet won, recovering a big chunk of the loss, but it could easily have made a bad situation a lot worse.
One more thing to note is that we encountered a problem with the bot losing all of our settings and results after our PC crashed, hence why our results only go back to the 3rd July. This was easily avoided in future by making sure to log out of the software after the settings had initially been entered and they were then permanently saved.

To summarise this update, the strategies from the user manual didn't work out for us so we wouldn't recommend using them. We have never been fans of recovery staking plans as things can get really out of hand quickly.
This didn't give us much faith in the bot, however, we decided to do some more testing before making a final decision.
The software does have the option to use level stakes, so we ditched the recovery settings and went for the safer option. There are many parameters that can be set for selecting matches to bet on, so we planned on having a little go at coming up with our own strategies.
Update Two Results
For the second part of our Soccer Stats Bot review we tried setting up a couple of our own strategies and opted to play it safe and use level stakes.
We set up two strategies using our own filters, a backing system for the Over 1.5 Goals market and a Matched Odds laying system to lay the draw in-play after 70 minutes if the score was level.
The backing system produced a small profit of £20.74 to £10 stakes from 44 bets during a one month period.
The laying system didn't actually have any bets and we weren't sure if this is to do with our filters or if the bot just didn't handle in-play betting as it should.
|Number of Bets||44|
During our testing we found that there were days where no bets were placed at all, even at weekends where we expected there to be a much higher volume of bets. Although it's possible it could be that none of the matches were suitable based on our filters, it seemed unlikely.
The days that the bot placed bets seemed sporadic, for example, we had a Thursday with 12 bets placed and then nothing at all during the weekend.
We decided to email the developers and we were sent an updated version of the bot, which we hoped would iron out this issue. They added a note to say they recommended that we didn't use the bot for in-play betting, so we planned to try out a pre-match laying strategy instead.
We are running the bot for a further month and will report back soon with our results.
