Sportradar’s Alpha Odds, its automated odds recalculation tool which allows operators to generate bespoke betting prices in line with their risk exposure and liabilities, delivered an average profit increase of 10 per cent for clients in 2023, compared to the performance of its conventional odds product. Launched in 2022, Alpha Odds boasts a client roster of more than 60 betting operators around the world.
Leveraging Sportradar’s advanced artificial intelligence capabilities, the pricing models within Alpha Odds more accurately predict the probability of a game event taking place, enabling operators to manage their risk more effectively. When combined with real-time and predicted liquidity, Alpha Odds allows operators to maximise trading efficiency in line with their trading strategies.
An analysis of 17 million betting tickets across 60 of Sportradar’s operator clients demonstrated the effectiveness of the artificial intelligence models within the odds recalculation service. Compared to the performance of the company’s conventional odds product, operators utilising the Alpha Odds solution were able to adjust their betting prices in ‘real-time’ to stabilise their trading operations and improve trading efficiency by 11 per cent.
