  • Soccer analysis – best and worst leagues
    There has been a lot of discussion going on in our forum at the moment about the Sportpunter soccer model and the incredible profits that have been achieved. There is also talk about the high number of bets on a Saturday as we cover almost every single league in the world, with some of these leagues it is difficult to get adequate bet sizes on. So what happens if we don’t...

  • Models…..What are they and what are they good for? – Part 2
    In the last article about sports models I talked about how as human beings we can often find patterns in randomness. I want to talk a little more about this in the real world. One of my friends recently had a baby which they named “Jordan”. Its cool to give surnames as first names at the moment, and even better it gives me an excuse to post a picture of the great man...

  • The art of sports prediction
    Sportpunter may well be a market leader when it comes to sport prediction, but we’ve recently come across some tough opposition, especially in the baseball field. It has come to our attention that Mike Blowers who is an ex baseball player and now radio commentator may have the edge on us. We have been attempting to contact Mike, in an attempt to poach him onto our...

  • The betting advantage in NBL
    Another fantastic two wins in Australian basketball (NBL) on the weekend with both bets easily covering the line. This year has been quite amazing so far with NBL betting as our record shows. A small number of bets so far, but it seems as though we have been on the right side of the line and may have one up on the bookies. Eight bets on the head to head betting with a...

  • Tax Free Tasmania
    Tasmania has stepped up the bookmaking race by giving tax free incentives to Tasmanian bookmakers. Tasmania has always been ahead of the rest of Australia when it comes to gambling, having the first casino and being partners with betfair.

  • Best and Worst list 2009: Tennis Model
    Our tennis model has had great success over the past 12 months, despite a small lapse of late. And it’s sometimes in these lapses that you start to ponder what players you love to bet on and which ones you love to bet against. It’s also times like these that you start hating betting on certain players who seem so inconsistent that you wonder if they are stressing...

  • AFL Wrap up 2009
    The Australian Rules AFL Season for 2009 has finished with Geelong declared the victors over St. Kilda in a tight grand final. So how did we go in 2009. Here is a brief analysis. Head to head betting faired the best with 136 bets for 54 winners. Not a great conversion rate at only 39.7%, but most of these were on outsiders. This is shown by a 21% ROI made over the year....

  • Models…..What are they and what are they good for? – Part 1
    Models…..What are they and what are they good for? No I’m not talking about the model that you see in the picture, that’s just merely an opportunity to include her. No, I’m talking about statistical models. What are they? Well according to Wikipedia, a statistical model is “a set of mathematical equations which describe the behaviour of an object of study in...
