Episode 57 - Lisandro Kaunitz and Javier Kreiner

Lisandro and Javier discuss a research paper they wrote about the online sports betting market.

They designed a strategy to beat bookmakers with their own numbers. The strategy proved profitable in a 10-year historical simulation using closing odds, a 6-month historical simulation using minute to minute odds, and a 5-month period during which they staked real money with the bookmakers (the code, data and models are publicly available). They also describe their betting experience to illustrate how the sports gambling industry compensates these market inefficiencies with discriminatory practices against successful clients.

After 25 episodes and a collection of incredible guests, Harry Findlay will be the final episode of this Season.

“Sophisticated conversations with interesting and intelligent people”

I am very grateful for every single guest that has graciously given up their time and knowledge for this Podcast so that we could meet this mantra.

I am excited to start with Season 2 very soon and cannot wait to reveal some of the guests who we will talk to.

There will be a few changes that should make the podcast even better and I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone for each individual download, listen, tweet, retweet, share, review, like – there has been over 80,000 downloads and listens which is ridiculous and it has been an incredible privilege for me to speak with some brilliant people in the betting world and I appreciate all of the feedback.
