What is a Dropping Odds Alert Configuration?

A dropping odds alert configuration sends alerts to your computer whenever Pinnacle drop their odds.
Configurations allow for a customised alerting experience which is one of the major advantages of the software as it enables our users to find profitable bets consistently at their local soft bookmakers. You can set many different filters within a configuration such as an odds range, a minimum drop %, a limit range and many more.
Once you have signed up the first thing you need to do is set up a dropping odds alert configuration. Dropping odds alerts are loved by our users as they are the backbone behind the Pinnacle dropping odds strategy which has been proven to be a long term winning value betting strategy.
In this guide I am going to take you through how to set up your first dropping odds alert configuration.

It’s recommended that new users leave the competition filter blank when setting up their very first configuration and gradually add competitions as the alerts come in, always making sure to abide by the rules below.
How to set …
  • To filter competitions, use the textbox indicated above. Please leave it blank to include all competitions.
  • This filter is not case-sensitive (e.g. "Italy" and "ItAlY"are treated the same).
  • Separate competitions using commas (e.g. "Premier League, Champions League").
  • The filter matches competition names containing the text you specify. For instance, if you set it to "premier" it will match competitions like "England - Premier League" and "Northern Ireland - Premiership."
  • You can be as specific or general as you like. For example, "a, b" will match all competitions with either an "a" or a "b" in their name.
 
Step 4: Set Advanced Filters

How does the time interval work?
The time interval is the time period across which the software scans for market changes to alert you.
For example, if you set it to 3 mins on a dropping odds alert then every time there is an odds change on Pinnacle the software will compare the new odds to the odds from 3 mins ago to see if the change has created a drop that matches your other filters.
Important points…
  • If you are using American odds you will need to input decimal odds into the odds range filter
  • If you set any of these filters too tightly then you will not receive many, if any alerts
