The Odds API Code Samples (v3) - Python
The Odds API provides live odds for loads of sports from bookmakers around the world, in an easy to use JSON format.
Before getting started, be sure to get a free API key from https://the-odds-api.com
For more info on the API, see the docs
python sample.py --api-key YOUR-API-KEY-HERE
This will print:
- A list of in-season sports
- Events and odds for the next 8 upcoming games (across all sports)
- Requests used & remaining for your api key
To change the sport, region and market, see the top of sample.py
Make sure the requests library is installed
pip install requests
Running sample.py once will use 1 request from the quota.

Run the python script in the container
docker run -t -i --rm -v "$(pwd)":/usr/src/app/ theoddsapi/sample:latest python sample.py --api-key YOUR-API-KEY-HERE
