Markets are subject to the laws of competition. Participants in a market strive to gain an edge over each other in order to achieve a goal which cannot be shared amongst them. Sports team strive to hire the best staff and players that will help them succeed over their rivals. They look to use the latest techniques in tactics, training, nutrition and in understanding their rivals. This is analogous to what individuals, syndicates or companies involved in sports betting do, or should be doing.
In the realm of sports betting, the strive to gain an edge over other participants has limited itself to a handful of individuals, syndicates or companies and not to your average bettor. Consequently, websites that make sports data accessible, either by being free or by charging a reasonable fee, to the average bettor have stagnated, ceased to improve. Endless amounts of websites present the same data in different colors, data that is limited to descriptive statistics like simple historic averages. It is no suprise most of these webpages have affiliate ads to bookies. Bookie affiliates only earn money if bettors lose bets. Poisonfoot.com looks to change this and set a new bar in the quality of the data presented.
Computers and coding are quintessential in the quest to gain an edge over other market participants due to the volume of available data and the complexity of the algorithms and mathematical models used to predict markets. Poisonfoot.com strives to take care of this for you and only present to you the necessary and important information. It is no suprise that the nature of this information is complex and therefore I have launched this guide to help you navigate through the idiosyncrasies of the site.
