The venue of this event has been moved to MS.01!
In week 6, we have a special Discussion Group run in conjunction with our primary sponsor, Atass Sports. This week, Richard Hill will come and discuss the topic of Predicting Football Results, on Monday 11th Feb at 6pm in MS.01.
This topic is suitable for first years and above.
For as long as there has been competitive football, spectators have tried to predict match outcomes in advance - both for entertainment and for financial gain. However, only with the development of modern statistical techniques (coupled with advances in computing) has it become possible to build sophisticated forecasting models that can accurately assess the probability of each possible scoreline. The output of such models can be compared against the "market view" expressed by traders on an online betting exchange, thereby highlighting promising betting opportunities.
The Warwick Maths Society is sponsored by Atass Sports. For more information on Atass, and for opportunities for internships and graduate programmes, visit Atass-Sports.co.uk or contact Richard Hill at firstname.lastname@example.org
