Sportradar’s Alpha Odds increased profits by 15% for operators across Euro 2024 qualifiers

Cutting-edge AI in Alpha Odds empowers operators to optimise trading efficiency and risk management.

Alpha Odds, Sportradar’s AI-driven personalised odds technology, boosted profits for sportsbook operators by an average of 15% during the UEFA European Championship qualifying matches.*  With the upcoming UEFA Euro 2024 tournament anticipated to generate more than €62.2bn in global betting turnover, operators can maximise profits and manage risk by utilising this product during the quadrennial tournament. 

Launched in 2022, Alpha Odds leverages Sportradar’s advanced AI technology to more accurately predict the probability of a game event taking place, enabling operators to manage their risk more effectively. When combined with real-time and predicted liquidity, Alpha Odds allows operators to generate bespoke betting prices in line with their risk exposure and liabilities.  

As examples of how Alpha Odds increased profitability for operators during the UEFA Euro 2024 qualifiers, where one team was heavily favoured, Alpha Odds helped clients manage risk in real-time and continue to accept bets as goals were tallied and the scoreline grew. Additionally, while a conventional odds service would have left operators vulnerable to a matchday of customer-friendly results, such as all the favourites winning at home by two or more goals, Alpha Odds’ predictive capabilities enabled instant adjustments, safeguarding sportsbooks against significant losses, as a match unfolded.

Darren Small, senior vice president of managed trading services at Sportradar, said: “The predictive capabilities that Sportradar has developed for Alpha Odds are proving to be a game changer ahead of this summer’s tournament, enabling operators to consistently improve profitability and deliver higher margins across soccer betting.”

Alpha Odds is available across Sportradar’s portfolio of betting markets for soccer and tennis, both pre-match and in-play. The solution will be expanded across basketball later in 2024. 

*Based on an analysis of more than 11 million betting tickets placed across 60+ Sportradar clients for the qualifying matches held between March 2023 and March 2024.
