Online PR News – 02-October-2012 – London, England – The news that the ultra-private sports trading group, Sportalists Limited, is to create a club allowing members of the public to share in their trading success has caught the imagination of investors worldwide.
Little is known about the group except that they are mathematical geniuses who have beaten the odds at the world's racetracks and sporting events, and never had a losing year.
“The Sportalists Club has long been talked about as a group of the most astute sports traders in the world, who zealously protected their privacy,” said Julian Carr, a city stock broker.
“They are regarded as sports specialists whose investment universe centers on sports and prediction markets,” he said.
“In this dynamic sector they are highly respected as having unparalleled intelligence and expertise, which is evident by some of their remarkable stories of their successful trades,” Mr Carr said.
Broke the Bank
On the week-end of 22 to 25 April 2011, the Australian partner in the club stunned sports books when they scored a perfect 10 out of 10 on predicting the results of rugby league, rugby union and AFL matches played in Australia…and letting their bet ride as a multi.
A multi allows the investor to group numerous selections into one bet, all up to a maximum of ten events.
Their odds on accumulating all ten results was in excess of 1000-1 and they are reputed to have won “an obscene amount of money”.
How much they won is not known but several weeks later the betting agency Sports Alive, which operated the multi-bet contract for Betfair that took one of their wagers, went into liquidation.
Whilst big valued results are a part of the legend of their success, the majority of their wins are on numerous smaller profitable trades in and out of markets in play, sometimes up to a hundred or more a day.
Investment Banker Paul Sutherland is in awe of their ability to consistently make profitable trades.
“The club's technique is akin to the high stakes world of online share trading, producing multiple small profits on trades,” he said.
“What others do for pleasure, they do for work. They take gambling very seriously.”
“The Sportalists Club is an elite team of Analysts with professional qualifications in quantitative disciplines such as science, accounting and mathematics who undertake extensive statistical and trending analysis coupled with rigorous background research and market intelligence,” Mr Sutherland said.
For those who are interested in how they achieve a 1000 – 1 winning trade, this is how it was done.
Let it Ride:
Here is the perfect ten out of ten on the weekend 22-25 April 2011.
Broncos + 4 ½
Panthers + 10
Gold Coast Suns +64 ½
Adelaide + 19.5
