How to Make Your Bookie Cry

We've all heard the saying, "I've never met a poor bookie", well we'll put that saying to the test! In this session I'll explain what the published odds actually mean, and show you how the bookies make their money. We'll then use a number of statistical and machine learning techniques to attack the bookies' margin and also to identify which bet we should place and at which odds. This session will greatly improve your understanding of machine learning techniques and may even improve your bank balance. :-)
