Like everything with automation, the level of human intelligence input is minimal so there is a tendency to misread the intentions of your fellow bidders and even to miss the trend at times. While bidding to win, the intention is to outwit and to outbid your fellow bidders and that requires some level of intelligence in your bids. That intelligence is something manual bidding can always fall back on as the bidding progresses. That alone makes manual bidding a better strategy to win these auctions instead of auto-bidding. If you have sufficient time and energy to spend on bids, I personally will recommend manual bidding over auto-bidding in auctions like PriceBenders taking into consideration the strong and weak points of both as highlighted above.
