English and Philosophy & Theology degrees at Oxford University may not be typical starting points for successful tipping services, but a shared love of tennis drove James and his partner Nicholas to bet using their combined expertise.
7 years, nearly 7,000 bets and a freshly built AI system later, we talk about the partners’ journey to success in a fascinating chat.
An in-depth chat with one of this service’s ‘Co-Pilots’
In this episode, James and I discuss:
- Tennis Pilot’s inception, how the service has developed and what James and Nicholas have learnt along the way
- Balancing working full-time with running a successful tipping service
- Value – what is it and why is it so hard to identify?
- Statistics and the different biases that can lead bookmakers to price matches incorrectly
- How specialisation can provide an instant advantage over the market
- Variables that help James to find expected value in matches
- James’s masters thesis and building a machine-learning tennis betting system from scratch
- Where to bet on tennis and the viability of different bookmakers and exchanges
- Tennis Pilot’s 17% ROI from nearly 7,000 bets
In addition, we have recently published an in-depth review into the service’s performance that is available with a paid SBC membership.
