Extracting opening odds from oddsportal website for any bookmaker

Opening odds

Opening odds values are displayed in a tooltip/popup in oddsportal website as you hover the mouse over the odds values, as shown below. So directly clicking and selecting the opening odds value from the popup does not work.

How to extract opening odds values for any bookmaker from oddsportal ?

The trick is to run a JavaScript code which would simulate ‘mouse hover’ over the required item during mining. Then, when we directly select the value from the popup during configuration, it will be correctly extracted during mining. The following video explains the steps involved. It also explains how you can modify the JavaScript code used to extract opening odds values, for any bookmaker and for home, draw or away values.

The JavaScript code used to simulate mouse hover and the RegEx string used to extract the odds value can be found in the video description.
