I intentionally created this page to let people learn scientific sportsbook. Dr. Mark James Dixon is the person I admired the most since few years ago when I am doing research on soccer odds modelling thoroughly. We know there were a lot of people doing research on odds modelling since decades, but Dr Mark Dixon himself wrote a very clear, completed and concise research thesis which is how to apply statistical formula Poisson model to gain money from bookmakers. The papers has been cross the decades and deem as a revolution in sportsbook industry, where later frequently referred to as the bible of value investing by World-wide use by SmartOdds, StarLizards, Scibet, MatchOdds, etc. I also keep learning from Dr Mark and struggle to build my own company and website at Scibrokes®.(Testing website)

The story began in 1998 when Mark Dixon, a University statistics lecturer, decided to set up his own one-man-band consultancy, offering statistical modelling and research services.
‘Advanced Training and Statistical Services,’ or ATASS for short, was so-named in order to feature prominently in the Yellow Pages. Increasingly, Mark’s passion for football led him to take on more and more sports-related work until by 2001 Mark and a handful of people were working from his home office under the new identity of ATASS Sports.
By this time, Mark’s ground-breaking work as a mathematician had been featured on Tomorrow’s World and his vision for growing the company began to take shape.
