1.
Expand here for a quick view of spread/total inputs. Inputs here originate from aggregated market data.  We continue to listen to market data throughout the lifecycle of the fixture (prematch and inplay).  If the market average differs from our inputs by a certain amount, these inputs will automatically change. Manual inputs can be entered here if desired.  Update line from dropdown, enter new prices and press Update.  Inputs can be entered for Q1 also.  Moneyline is available to solve on also

2. Pre-Match

Total/Spread
Inputs the model is using.  Can be changed (remember to re-enter prices after changing line, then press Update)

Player Markets Pricing

We have kept the ‘Time on Court’ parameters out of the UI.  They will be stored in the model and directly linked to Total Points for each player (if a player’s points are correct then his TOC should be broadly correct too)

Rosters

This section allows the user to control which players are available for a fixture.  This will be a manual process for now (managed by Banach as much as possible) because there is no feed available with the requisite information

Props

We have a robust solution in place for activating/managing player markets with the addition of market data validation.  There will be some manual work involved because we’re not templating all players in all markets (again, managed by Banach as much as possible).  The steps involved in the process are:

1. 

Model prices the Top X for each team (5 for Points, 3 for others).  No selection is activated until it is validated (either manually or via market data

 

2. 

Box being ticked means player has been validated

3. 

Only the Top X players will be activated (e.g. 4 players could be ticked for Assists but only the Top 3 will be active)

Unticking this box allows the traders to choose the players they want to redistribute the %s amongst, the model will then do so proportionally (Figs 1, 2 & 3 below, increasing Hardman’s %).  To follow, we will have an option to not redistribute a change in snaps at all (in the meantime, to achieve this just select an inactive player from the dropdown below)

Individual player props prices can be manually adjusted without affecting other players, more on this later.  However, changing the snap % is a more ‘complete’ way to adjust prices (e.g. if a players Receiving Yards is out, it may be that his Receptions is out also so changing the snap % should change both)

Some scenarios that might help:

(a)    QB is ruled out of next game before we get an injury update

        Simply untick the player from ‘fixture’ and move his Snap% to 0 while doing the opposite for the incoming player

(b)   RB’s line too low for Rushing Yards

       Increase his Snap% (this should decrease lines for other RBs)

(c)   I want to increase one Running Back’s Snap % without affecting the other active Running Back.

Untick Model Redistribution and choose any inactive player. 

Anytime TD Scorer

guide-13.png

List of active relevant players for TD scoring.  Prices can be changed which will affect all TD markets.  If the trader is happy with a player’s snap % but still wants to change his Touchdown price, can do so by simply typing in the target price and pressing update. Pricing Feed button will move to ‘Off’ to indicate that a manual change has been made.  Note that the price returned will not match exactly the input price due to simulation variance (differences will be negligible)

TD markets are enabled at fixture creation but activated an agreed time before kick-off (there will be a button in Dolly soon allowing the user to manually activate/suspend TD markets)
 

Props

guide-14.png

By default we template the follower players for props

Rushing Yards - 1 QB, 2 RB
Carries - 1 QB, 2 RB
Receiving Yards - 1 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE
Receptions - 1 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE
Scrimmage Yards - 1 RB, 2 WR

Sometimes more than this will be templated e.g. if the line of 1 player dropped significantly enough for the next player in that position to have a higher line

 

Players can be suspended easily by unticking the box (and can be added back in)
 

Much like TD scorers, props lines/prices can be altered manually.  Enter a line, price or both and press update
 

Props markets are enabled at fixture creation but activated an agreed time before kick-off (there will be a button in Dolly soon allowing the user to manually activate suspend props/markets)

Total/Spread prices nudged inplay rather than entering prices as in pre-match.  As with props, keep it to a maximum of 5 nudges at a time

Snap %s, Anytime TD prices and props pricing/suspension can be amended in the same way as pre-match
