The betting begins
When Paulo returned to college his interest in sports betting began. Consistent results and profits were made from “simple statistical analyzes” in Paulo’s own words and sports trading became a major focus of his.
After about a year of betting Paulo Rebelo found Betfair and realised that he could apply everything he had learnt from studying the financial markets to the Betfair markets.
Rebelo eventually developed his own database and created a model which was able to identify profitable odds in the Betfair markets.
Live trading was Paulo’s next focus and he writes “after identifying, analyzing and correction of some mistakes done, I managed to step-by-step profit with live games. When I started winning consistently I dedicated myself exclusively to trading live.”
