If you look at betfair, it's pretty obvious there's a courtsider at every single match, barring a few of the smallest matches at the most obscure 250s.
It is quite comical how bad they are at spotting them.

What I dont understand is why it would pay for these companies to chase courtsiders. First of all, they use Betfair so they dont really affect bookmakers. Second of all, they dont transmit scores to any websites (if they do, please give me the link). The whole security apparatus is just annoying and a big waste of money.

And isn't the whole business model flawed? Let's say Bet365 pays lots of money for the scores. How hard is it for other bookmakers to copy Bet365s scores or to build some kind of feed?
