Pinnacle API

Hey guys,

Just wanted to ask, since Pinnacle no longer supports APIs to regular customers, where do you get your feed from?

Many thanks,

Could someone explain why Pinnacle's API is so much important? Why do we need this API when we already have Pinnacle's odds scanned by alert services like BetBurger and BetOnValue?
Thank you.

I can think of many reasons:

1. all alert services (correct me if I am wrong here) get their Pinnacle odds feed from third parties (I believe they get it from PS3838?) and not directly from Pinnacle API. Those secondary APIs proved to be inaccurate some times and thus may create false arbs/value bets.

2. If you have access to Pinnacle API then besides getting their odds feed you can also place bets programmatically which can give you significant edge in terms of speed.

3. Alert services don't scan all events and all markets so by using Pinnacle API you can find some exclusive arbs/value bets.

4. You can get a lot more data from Pinnacle API than alert services will show you, e.g. liquidity which can be very important when deciding if market is sharp.

5. You can use Pinnacle API to automatically grade your bets for analytics purposes.

What makes you think they use PS3838 and not the real thing directly (Pinnacle)?

I remember betburger once said that they don't get odds feed directly from Pinnacle API but instead use PS3838 API. They didn't state the reason for that but I think it just saves them a lot of money because as we know Pinnacle's direct API costs 5k euro per month. If leading alert service cannot afford Pinnacle's direct  API I assume other alert services can't either. I stand to be corrected if this is wrong and someone knows better.

I believe many alert services afford to buy the original API from Pinnacle.
But the question is, is Pinnacle ready to sell it to these services? I seriously doubt.
And in the end, maybe the only thing needed to have their API for free, might be an active account. But I am sure they (Pinnacle) already know how to stop it.

Its very easy to know if u are using api for big business purpose by the number of requests you send to the api. I think they are reselling pinnacle odds by selling their api and that is not allowed. So it would be best if this posts were removed including mine. But maybe im wrong and there is nothing to worry about.
