Today, there is a newly found awareness in the mainstream media of the work of various “stats style bloggers” who use data analytics to give a greater depth of understanding to the game of football.
Amazingly, even this level of relatively unsophisticated information in the public domain is still not universally accepted as having value by pundits and traditional football experts.
However, rather than approach this as a hobby or in a semi-professional manner, Starlizard has devoted millions of hours to take our understanding of the game into a completely different league.
It is one thing knowing the right selection but it is another skill entirely to get this opinion into the market, filling your desired stake at the optimal price.
It is far from easy, but we use our understanding of the game and market know-how to provide our clients with a small edge over the market to generate long term winning returns.
Our predictions for match outcomes are the most accurate in the world. We’ve refined this capability over decades to create our unique business process.
Our research team possesses a fanatical, encyclopaedic knowledge of the beautiful game.
We employ the best and most respected betting brains in the industry to distil what’s happening on the pitch and convert it into betting probabilities.
A specialist team uses highly customised methodologies to place vast volumes of our clients’ bets into the market.
Technology is at the heart of our business. Our in-house high-performance technology stack enables the business to scale and covers thousands of matches per year, both pre-match and live in-play.
Massive volumes of data converge into our bespoke analytics tool, providing an unparalleled level of insight for our expert teams across the entire world of football.
We build and operate highly tailored, automated, event-driven systems that combine advanced mathematical models with real-time football and betting information to deliver consistent insight and value from the sports marketplace.
Our distributed messaging systems handle thousands of global activities every second, highlighting betting opportunities the moment they appear. Continuous streams of sporting and betting events converge on our data platform, providing rich analysis and deep insights to our research and betting teams.
Building event-sourced betting micro services using the latest .NET technologies, data science tools with Python, MongoDB and Pandas, web scraping robots and high frequency stream processors, we continuously challenge ourselves to improve the quality of what we build and to reduce the time to build it.
Our technology teams work closely with other front office groups and we prioritise doing things right. Engineering needs, automation, testing and monitoring are all key considerations of every release. Focusing on eliminating barriers to productivity, we encourage experimentation. Network and database engineers trade ideas with software developers, all with the energy and innovation to drive our business forward.
Fixed games, by definition, are not representative of how genuine sport is played. This can seriously damage the data we collect and our ability to assess how games will be played in the future. Our predictions work best when the game is fair.
In partnership with authorities and other key stakeholders in the global sports integrity arena, we are proud to play our part in the battle to keep sport clean. We have produced independent anti-match fixing analyses since 2010, having established close working relationships with many partners, including sports governing bodies and their respective integrity units.
We ask the same of our staff too in how they interact with each other and external parties. We feel that this helps to create a professional working ‘society’ where our people are encouraged to reach the peak of their potential.
Starlizard demands excellence in all areas of its business process. Thinking and working practices cannot remain static in such a competitive and changing marketplace. As such, creativity and innovative ideas are highly prized alongside professionalism and disciplined rigour.
Starlizard is very proud to invest a lot of time and emotional energy in its staff. There is a canteen serving high quality, healthy food every day of the year. There is an onsite gym and a mezzanine area with pool tables, dart boards and games. We regularly have company-wide, departmental and charity events that bring an extra social dimension to our working lives.

We are delighted to be located at the heart of Camden Town, which is vibrant, eclectic and open all hours. It is synonymous with music and fashion, pubbing and clubbing and has the West End a matter of minutes away by tube. For those looking for a change of pace from the buzz of city life, Regent’s Park and Primrose Hill are just a stroll from our doorstep. We really couldn’t be better located for our staff to make the most of working in London.
