About us

This is a unique opportunity to join a successful and pioneering sports betting consultancy. Through a combination of cutting‐edge research, analytical thought and a constant desire to question and improve, we maintain our position at the forefront of the sports betting market.

The Research, Betting and Execution teams work seamlessly with our Data Analytics and Tech departments to not only identify value, but to get our opinion into the market, filling our clients’ desired stake at the optimal price.
