Our Remit

Founded in 2018, our core mission at Odds Digest is to keep track of – and report on – the latest major developments within predictive markets.

Our remit is to offer more than sports, however. We cover politics, show-business, the arts, literature and yet more besides. These are home to some of the most engaging odds markets around –  think Trump, Brexit or Scottish Independence – and we are providing dedicated coverage of developments in these predictive markets for subjects where coverage has been traditionally weak.

Predictive markets are becoming increasingly sophisticated, and the public is increasingly hungry for better information, stronger insights and superior context. And at Odds Digest, we are now bringing these to you.

If you want to reach out to us directly, you can do so via our contact page.
