WebScraping - Lists of Odds on Betting Website into Python

I'm undertaking a project in python whereby I need to be able to scrap live odds from a Betting Website.

I need a script that can simply get two classes of data from within a given web-page and store them in a simple python list/dictionary or anything else simple. More specific details will be given later.

Requirements of the script:

- Simple as possible (because I need this to be easily understood and editable by myself in the future).

- Well commented (again as I will want to tweek this it could almost do with being a tutorial so I can understand what parts of the code relate to what in the HTML).

- FAST (needs to read the data quickly straight html rather than using selenium for example).

I can imagine if you know what your doing you could write this simply in an hour or two (however there far harder tasks down the barrel!). This is more of a test for me to see if it's worth getting freelance help on it or just attempting to teach myself how to webscrap.

If a clear & well-commented script is returned I may have far more similar and bigger budget projects on this theme for the chosen developer in the future.

Project Budget: ~£15-30

Feel free to ask any further Qs about this project!
