Anyone who follows sports betting knows Ted Servansky, known in the sports betting world as Teddy Covers.

The Computer Group - How the computer group made millions betting on sports

How the Computer Group Made Millions in the Early 80’s on College Football, And Why That’ll Never Happen Again

Almost anyone who knows about the history of online sports betting knows about the Computer Group, perhaps the most successful computerized sports betting (see video) group in history, whose success led to the arrests of the entire group, including famed sports bettor Billy Walters, after investigations that the group was involved in an illegal bookmaking operation in 1985.

After the indictments of the members, the Computer Group split, and the level of success they reached was never to be repeated. But why? It’s a useful lesson to learn from their own history. Read more

staking in sports betting and gambling

Staking: Popular methods to improve your sports betting

Will staking improve your sports betting profits? In an analysis of 500 bets, five different techniques were tested. Only one produced a concrete result. Why?

We’ll get to the ‘why’ in a moment, but the point on staking has been hammered repeatedly over and over by serious sports investors, handicappers and the professional sports bettors – in the end you have to gauge your bets carefully. And yet there is a strong case to suggest that the amount you bet is actually more important than what you bet on. So in this post we’ll look at a few popular staking methods used by sports investors, and unveil which is the best.

Most Betting Techniques Will Eventually Fail

Sports betting, like any type of investing, is based upon gain versus potential loss. In soccer betting, this is doubly true, where there are so many opportunities available to completely lose your money and investment. When loss isn’t taken into account, virtually any betting system will fall apart. Professional Blackjack player Ed Thorp learned this sad lesson as casinos kept trying to beat his “method”, which he eventually explained was simply carefully betting against possibilities.

Betting Tips: Sports betting an investment?

Making money betting on sports? Most sports bettors and gamblers seeking betting tips or picks think that sports betting is about finding a winning pick or sure thing. The reality is, and ask any betting expert, there is no such thing as ‘guarantees’ or ‘locks’. There are nothing more than marketing verbiage to lure in the novice sports bettor or those people seeking a winning prediction on the weekends game.

Just as in the stock market, real estate, foreign exchange (FX) currency markets, or any other speculative market, the guaranteed ‘sure thing’ just does not exist. As a professional sports investor, or as my friends might think ‘professional betting expert’, my goal in sports investing is to find and take advantage of numerous edges over the long run at the sports books. Among this, the most critical aspect to profiting and winning over the years I’ve found is the compound return sports investing can produce from finding the edge with the right betting tips. This YouTube video explains the power of compound returns in sports investing (29 min mark).

Video: Daniel Kahneman, Always Trust Your Numbers. Never Trust Your Gut

In this video by thought leader Daniel Kahneman, author of the best seller Thinking, Fast and Slow, touches on a subject close to home for us. Daniel talks about overcoming the cognitive biases and errors that can affect decision-making, and explains why people always overestimate their ability to predict the future. He puts his faith instead in…algorithms.

It resonates strongly with the proprietary sports prediction model we’ve built at IntelligentBettingTips.com, that employs part of Daniels perspective of the use of algorithms to provide a statistically higher confidence on predicting future outcomes.

See our video on how Daniel’s perspective on the use of algorithms and experts is employed in our sports prediction model (betting system) – watch video.

While we employ both groups of experts (professional handicappers and sports analysts), and the cognitive power of collective intelligence from the public consensus into our sports betting system, we also take these two key inputs into our prediction model, and apply our own computer algorithms, giving the sports investor or bettor the best of both to enhance the accuracy of predicting the future outcomes in sports.

Daniel describes why both can have its flaws (the human element); and statistically speaking the public opinion in many cases has shown an advantage to bet against their opinion for key reasons. And he goes on to explain why we can attain a higher confidence in predicting future outcomes from the use of algorithms.

The sports investing or betting system at IntelligentBettingTips.com employs all three, and benchmarks the performance not only against one another, but also in some algorithms rather than pit each one against the other, use them together to test, lean and optimize the performance accuracy.
