Thursday September 8, 2011 :   New service in anticipation of the imminent Rugby World Cup
 
The Sporting Index Group's B2B trading and pricing division Sporting Solutions will provide its partners with a comprehensive in-play rugby union service ahead of this year's Rugby World Cup.
 
The service will provide in-play price updates on all forty-eight Rugby World Cup matches, ranging from simple match odds to the next team to score a try.
 
Dave Grogan, Business Development Director, Sporting Solutions, said: “Rugby is a great in-play sport, but it is one that is both difficult and expensive to model and price up. Our unique in-play service marries modelling, pricing and trading expertise, to provide a flexible and cost effective outsource solution for sportsbooks.
 
“We’re really looking forward to the Rugby World Cup – tournaments like this are where our traders excel, as they produce their own prices and don’t follow the crowd or rely on a purely algorithmic price. Unexpected weather conditions are bound to have a big impact in New Zealand and the traders will be rapidly moving prices according to tactical game changes to ensure price accuracy.”
 
Sporting Solutions allows bookmakers to outsource their in-play betting on twenty-two sports and partner operators include William Hill, ToteSport, Skybet, Centrebet and Party Gaming.
