What is the Oddsmaker’s Report?

Return to the Oddsmaker’s Report

The Oddsmaker’s Report provides a high level view of the market action. The Oddsmaker’s Report lists actual messages that traders at one global book post to their trading board.

Most of the posts to the Oddsmaker’s Report are fired off quickly, so expect some spelling/grammer (wink,wink “ar”) mistakes. However, these mistakes will not be to the key information. At the actual book, this Oddsmaker’s Report is called something else and every trader has it on their screen at all times. It’s like a group message tool among the book’s traders and management. You will not have access to everything that gets posted to the group message board due to security of the book. However, the book has agreed to allow me to have a robot copy and post any messages labeled Group Buys, Late Buys, General Sharp Action, General Market Commentary and any major sharp/recreational bettor requests. I think you will enjoy the information. These post categories (listed above) represent <5% of what is discussed in the actual book’s group chat. Also, I set things up so that I can post messages to the TSP Live side of the board too. So, that’s why there is a “User” column. You’ll then know if the post was from the book’s group chat or something I am posting. If the post comes from the book, the “User” column will of course say “Book”, if it comes from me then it will say “TSP”. Pretty simple and straight forward. I do not have alerts programmed for the Oddsmaker’s Report at this time. I have no feel yet for what would be good or not. So, let’s see how this operates for the first week or two, and then I can make adjustments.

The Oddsmaker’s Report should be self-explanatory. The date and time is when the post was made. The “Alert” is simply the category of the alert. The “Content” is the message being posted. The “User” is just letting you know who posted the message. I think you will enjoy this feature. I am very excited to see it in action for an NCAAF & NFL weekend.
