Resources for Football Betting
In order to deliver football tips, FBT uses a number of external resources and data files. It is this unique combination of historical data, real time news feeds and statistical analysis that allows us to arrive at soccer predictions that are loaded in your favor. Whilst some of our tools and data is proprietary, much of the information we use to assess spreads and fixed odds value is openly available on the internet. To introduce some of the concepts we employ to arrive at our best football tips we’ll look at some examples and how the tools are used. As we’ve said previously, history is a great predictor of future behavior in many walks of life – football betting is no different. Let’s take a recent example of the Caribao Cup in England (also referred to as the League Cup). A total of 25 2nd round matches were scheduled between the 28th and 29th August and Sporting Index had set an aggregate goals price of 68-70 or 2.76 goals per game. Here is where we utilize one of our useful data sources to look at previous history: www.soccerway.com. First, we go to the England Section, then we select ‘League Cup’ from the left-hand menu. See below:
As you will see top right, there are also drop-down menus that allow us to select a year and stage of the competition. We are therefore able to zero in precisely on the results from any year in the second round. As we do this, we begin to notice something; almost every year there are an average of more than 3 goals at this stage of the competition, so we could reasonably expect there to be at least 75 goals at this stage of the competition. We would therefore buy at 70 goals on Sporting Index and be safe in the knowledge that we should profit to the tune of at least 5 times our stake. The same type of analysis can be completed for BBTS and Win, Football Accumulators, or other general football predictions.
Football Predictions for other markets
This ability to look back at history, at the comparative stage of a competition is extremely useful and often a great predictor of future events. There are other data sources available for other purposes. Let’s examine a spread betting market known as ‘Headed Goal Minutes’ , i.e. the time on the clock when headers are scored in a game added up. For example, if two headers are scored on the 33rd and 58th minutes the make-up would be 91. Normally it would be very difficult to locate a history for this market, but a FBT we never provide Football Tips without a statistical insight. Therefore, we located https://www.football-lineups.com which is the perfect resource for this task.
If we go to the homepage and click the ‘Tournaments’ menu link we see an array of countries with their primary soccer leagues displayed. From here we can select any league for deeper analysis. Click for example the English Premier League and select any year from the dropdown. You then have the ability to select any matchday to review what occurred. A detailed readout can be obtained for each game including, Total Corners, Bookings, Goals Scored and many other details. Take our ‘Headed Goal Minute’ example. You will see in the match detail a small blue H alongside a scorer’s name signifying that the goal was scored with their head. This may not seem significant at first glance, but it allowed us to make several thousand pounds profit during the recent World Cup in Russia. By mapping the headed goal minutes in previous world cups (see the graphic below) and keeping an eye on the spread for headed goal minutes allowed us to strike a significant bet at the optimum time.
Without football-lineups.com, this type of analysis would not be possible. As you will see from the above graphic, we could track the headed goal minutes for each matchday within each world cup group for the previous 5 world cups. A lot of effort for us as you might appreciate, but this is what FBT do to ensure our clients are making informed soccer predictions and bets. The same principles are applied for football our acca, BTTS and general soccer fixed odds markets.
The spreadsheet resource you see above is one of many that FBT has constructed to track different facets of soccer. It is these resources that our clients are benefitting from when they use our services. We are happy to share this inside knowledge because if our clients succeed they are more likely to refer us to their friends and family and via Social Media which is key to our growth.
Finally, we want to let you know that we also keep records for all major tournament such as World Cups and European Championships. It is extremely useful when spread betting to see what occurred in history. As an example, you will see below a snapshot of the make ups for the tournament aggregate markets at the recent 2018 World Cup in Russia. You will find this reference extremely useful for the European Championships in 2020 and of course the 2022 Qatar World Cup.
