Bot Betting Edge

The Blog

This blog will contain my reflections and progress within the field of modelling and predicting sports probabilities, especially for soccer matches inplay. Although placing bets on different matches I don't consider myself as a bettor, I see myself as an investor placing money where I have edge and finds value. Sports betting is fantastic!


DataPosted by Tobias Bramhed Wed, January 13, 2016 11:08:11
Lately I have been working on improving my data handling and storage process. The previous set up I used was to export all data into .csv files, and then import it to SAS and from there creating SAS tables from where I could do my analysis.

This was an easy set up, but not very efficient.

So, now I have set up a proper SQL database. I chose the PostgreSQL as its free and supports unlimited size tables. Now my bot speak directly to the SQL database, inserting and retrieving data directly.

So far so good, it seems to be working without any issues - and it seems to keep the tables smaller (in size) than the SAS tables.

The improvement continues on all parts! Good data is essential for good analysis.
