Sbostats was born on an afternoon in June 2014 out of my passion for English soccer.
Every year, usually in the third week of June, the football association draws the calendar of the future season of the Premier League, probably the best soccer league in the world.
A few hours later, on the main sports betting sites, the odds of the first three days of the championship came out, yes you read it right: not one, but three rounds. The fact is that the Premier League starts two months after the draw, with the whole summer market in front of it that can completely change the values of the teams. This showed that the bookmakers of sports betting, quote events assuming the risk of being wrong (which never happens), without waiting for all that information that the mass of players look at before placing a bet, such as disqualified, injured, the state of form of a team etc. ...
In Italy in recent years, we have had for example Juventus U23 that has been quoted even though it has never played a match in its history.
The day after the English draw, Andrea and I then decided to start monitoring the initial odds of over a hundred different soccer leagues, because one odds has a different history depending on the league. By doing so we are able to know at a specific initial price, how many times the match ended with a specific result (over, goal, exact result etc..). After 4 long and intensive years of work, we have published online Sbostats, the first platform of statistics on initial odds and training in sports betting. A new way of betting that helps to have more awareness before placing a bet.
