Betting Trends and Strategies Conference 2016


Betting Trends and Strategies Conference 2016. BeTS 2016 takes place on 9th June 2016 at the RAI in Amsterdam as part of the iGaming Super Show.

BeTS 2016 is the only dedicated sports betting conference that focuses on the latest opportunities, trends and strategies in the industry. With support from Racing Post and Sports Betting Community we are able to bring you the industry's top speakers and panellists. This year's expert sessions cover everything from eSports to DFS to big data and sports betting.

Shona ODonnell, Head of Operations at iGaming Business said “BeTS was one of the most popular conferences at the iGaming Super Show in 2015 and we have high expectations for this year’s event. We are very excited for the sessions that we have lined up; the sessions are diverse and cover all of the most important strands of the industry. Keep your eyes open for some of the top speakers who will be sharing ideas and trends”.

Below are three highlights from the BeTS 2016 conference:


-9th June, 14.15: Big data and sports betting: How to engage consumers: One aim that every sportsbook has is to acquire new customers, increase time on site and ultimately trigger additional betting activity. This session will discuss how you can achieve this.

-9th June, 10.30: DFS - can it work in Europe? DFS took off in the US where it essentially became a proxy for gambling in a country where sports betting is largely banned. With the big brands looking at Europe and more DFS companies joining the fray, we discuss whether the model can work where betting is legal.


-9th June, 15.00: Olympic effort: Can Rio bring home the gold?  London 2012 proved that the Olympics could work as a betting event. Will Rio 2016 continue the trend? How should you best target this event and capture the interest of the local markets in which you operate?

BeTS 2016 will be held on the 9th June 2016 at the RAI Exhibition and Convention Centre in Amsterdam as part of the iGaming Super Show. The conference is free for all delegates to attend.



Betting Trends & Strategies is part of the iGaming Super Show. The iGaming Super Show is the biggest dedicated iGaming exhibition and conference for the iGaming industry and is guaranteed to meet your needs from a networking, education and business perspective. In 2016 we are expecting over 4,000 delegates, 100+ speakers and over 120 stands. The 2016 iGaming Super Show will have eight events in one location including dedicated payments, player acquisition, regulation and compliance, sports betting, binary/financial and affiliate events.


Predictions for the 2016 Wimbledon championships

predictions-for-the-2016-wimbledon-championshipsAlthough there’s still four months until the 2016 Wimbledon tennis championships, many websites are already offering the odds on the prospects for what will happen on the centre court between 27 June and 10 July.

Last year saw men’s tennis dominant star Novak Djokovic pick up the title for the second successive year, whilst Serena Williams made it an incredible six wins at this prestigious competition. So what’s the form looking like for the 2016 Wimbledon championships?

Men’s betting

One man has dominated tennis in the past year and that’s the incredible Serbian tennis star Novak Djokovic. 2015 was a truly exception year for Djokovic as he managed to win three of the four Grand Slam tournaments, and although it would be dangerous to bet against him, there are some serious challengers for 2016.

You can never bet against home advantage which is why Scotland’s Andy Murray is always in the running. He will be particularly keen to settle the scores after another disappointing Australian Open Final result against Djokovic, and with his last Grand Slam triumph being in 2013’s Wimbledon, Murray will want to ensure that this result wasn’t just a one off.

Although Roger Federer looks to be making a full recovery after knee surgery, a more enticing betting prospect could be backing the Swiss star Stan Wawrinka. Betway’s site is providing an enticing betting option for Wawrinka to follow on from his 2015 French Open victory, and many betting fans will be wondering if there’ll be a better chance than to jump on these odds? Particularly as one of his nearest competitors, Nick Kyrgios, retired with a back injury in the recent Dubai Championships.

Women’s odds

Serena Williams is widely-thought to be the greatest female tennis player of all-time, and she’s already way ahead of the pack in terms of the sports betting. However, many will be questioning whether the 34-year old star has got another Wimbledon victory in her.

This is especially so given her shock defeat by Angelique Kerber in last month’s Australian Open. The rising German star is an excellent outside bet in this competitive field, although the Czech player Petra Kvitkova is amongst the favourites despite the health issues that plagued her last year.

And with other female tennis stars such as Victoria Azarenka and Maria Sharapova also riding high in the betting odds, it could be the most wide-open women’s Wimbledon tournament yet.


Will Hummels force a January move?

Will Hummels force a January move?

Last summer Mats Hummels was on the top of the world after winning the World Cup with Germany.

This week he’s preparing to play for Borussia Dortmund as the club battles to avoid relegation from the Bundesliga. It looks almost certain that the German international will be leaving Dortmund, but will it be in January or during the summer?
Any fee for the international is likely to eclipse the £25m that Manchester City paid for Wilfried Bony and neighbours Manchester United are keen on signing the defender as they look to strengthen their squad. Arsenal have also been interested in increasing the German contingent at the Emirates, though that interest seems to have died down a bit in recent weeks and they’ve now signed Gabriel Paulista.
Crucial question
Hummels was asked this week by the German newspaper Bild if he was going to be leaving Dortmund during the summer, let alone January.  “Are you looking for a headline?” was his brisk reply. The defender added: “I will keep it the way I’ve been doing it for seven years. I’ll let everything come to me and just look forward only to the start against Leverkusen and the second half of the season.”
Well he was hardly going to reply that he’s hoping to be joining Manchester United in a few days’ time was he? Perhaps when Dortmund names their side at the weekend we’ll have a much better idea of whether there is an imminent move to England or elsewhere in the pipeline.
Hummels has admitted that he is aware of all the speculation linking him with a big money move to either England or Spain. Asked whether he has made any decisions about his long-term future, he said: “It’s not the case with any of us that this has been written for the first time. And with me rumours are always going around, but I’m still here. I’ll let everything come to me and just look forward to the restart (of the Bundesliga) at Leverkusen. Everything else, I’m not thinking about."
Staying put?
That still doesn’t sound like the comments of a player who could be playing in a different country this time next week. He does seem to be focused on getting back to full fitness and helping Dortmund climb from their current position of one from bottom in the Bundesliga. There’s also the fact that despite their poor league form, Dortmund are still in the Champions League and won’t be keen on selling Hummels.
It’s unlikely that Dortmund will qualify for Europe next season, not that Manchester United can say they’ll definitely be doing that in the 2015-16 campaign. A lack of European football may change his views, though.
Or would it? When asked about the possibility of leaving Dortmund in September 2014, Hummels again failed to speak like a player who can’t wait to take on the next big challenge in his career. Comments such as “loyalty is important to me” are rare in this day and age.  He also talked about players such as Steven Gerrard and Paolo Maldini, who have spent nearly all their career playing for one side.
Speaking about previous interest from other clubs, the World Cup winner said: “I have had offers from different clubs ever since I have been with Dortmund. That’s not a secret. I have always decided not to leave.”
This isn’t a player though who will most definitely be at Dortmund for many years to come. He revealed: “I have never said I will stay until 2024 or 2030 or whenever… but I have stayed until today. I will stick to my way of not promising anything and maybe leave someday, instead of saying I will stay forever and then leave all of a sudden.”
So the chances of Hummels staying at Dortmund are in the balance. The Germans do have a history of cashing in on their best players, and money does talk. With a big-money bid for the £40million-rated Hummels due from United, would the Germans be able to resist?
