  • Identify patterns and trends - in analysing a host of historical data, descriptive analytics can identify patterns and trends in a host of vital-to-betting aspects, like which teams or players perform well or poorly. Additionally, AI can help identify profitable betting opportunities by analysing historical data and identifying patterns that suggest a certain outcome is more likely. This can help sports betting businesses make more accurate predictions and offer more competitive odds, which can attract more customers and increase profits.
  • Improving real-time decision making processes - DA provides insights into performance which can help betting businesses increase their decision making processes; analysing data from performance, outcomes, factors, and allows a company to develop increased accuracy models for predicting future outcomes. On the other hand, real-time decision making can help sportsbooks identify and prevent fraudulent activity, such as suspicious betting patterns or insider information. With that in mind, sportsbooks could take action to lessen risks and protect the integrity of their business. 
  • Increases the effectiveness of risk management - AI-powered risk management tools can benefit  betting businesses in identifying potential risks, thereby the business can take steps to mitigate any future or potential risks. DA can also be used to monitor and identify fraudulent activity, such as match-fixing, which is a major risk for sports betting companies. 
  • Insights on customer behaviour - in understanding your customers and players better, content can be tailored to increase engagement, loyalty and can extend to tailoring marketing campaigns and promotions.
