About Action Backers
Action Backers is a state of the art sports betting and analytics education platform. Designed to help you become a better sports bettor, Action Backers provides you with the tools you need to make smarter bets. Established in 2018, Action Backers is a team of sports betting experts, data scientists, and developers who are passionate about sports and sports betting education.
What started out as a blog, Action Backers quickly grew into a full fledged sports betting and analytics education platform. The Action Backers team needed a way to meet the demands of their customer base, and expand beyond simple spreadsheets and videos.
Core features of the Action Backers platform would include:
- A live odds feed from the top sportsbooks
- A way to provide users with a way to track their bets
- A way to automatically grade bets upon completion of the game
- Integrated machine learning models to help users make smarter bets
- Key analytics and ROI metrics to help users track their progress
- A way to accept payments and manage subscriptions
- A learning platform to help users learn the basics of sports betting
The solution was to build a full stack web application that would incorporate all of the requested core features. Broken Toaster’s team were up to the task and built out a full-stack application, using industry standard frameworks. As well as the accompanying website, which was built using Next.js, Tailwind CSS, and TypeScript.
We at Broken Toaster were also responsible for the design and branding of the application, and provided all of the SEO and copywriting for the website.
