Why do you need our football predictions?

So why do you need our football predictions? Well firstly let me go through why a gambler would want to look for predictions in the first place. While football is unpredictable most of the time it is not random. Today's football predictions cover so many different aspects and take from many different areas and sources.

We are not just looking at who might win a game but lots of other markets such as football score predictions, who will score, who will get booked etc. These different predictions give gamblers a much broader selection and choice and can help them narrow down what bet best suits what they are looking for and their bankroll.

As mentioned above, football predictions today have a great amount of background work that went into them. Not only are personnel, previous results, and the game location taken into account but previous performances are analysed using statistical models such as the xG model. This doesn’t just look at the final score but instead analyses how much each team should have scored based on the quality of their chances. This, along with similar models can allow gamblers to find where bookmakers may have over or undervalued certain teams and therefore can give you the edge.

What Can You Learn From Our Football Predictions?

The BetFootball site does predictions the right way. So much so they are practically scientific football predictions for today’s modern gambler. Let's look at an example: Liverpool played Porto at Anfield in the 5th round of their Champions League group recently. We give you all you needed to know before you placed a bet.

At the top of the page, you will see a graphic with the match-up featuring each team's last five results. If you check in after or during the match you will also find an up-to-date result.

Then the main body of the article starts. Here you can learn some general background on both teams, how they are playing etc. Crucially you also get your first piece of useful statistics in this paragraph. This could be about how well they have been doing in their league or it could revolve around how successful the team is in front of goals. Either way, you will get your first taste of how BetFootball's predictions work.

Next up, for the bigger games, there will be a detailed section that goes into stats and analysis. You can check that out for yourself but needless to say, you will find everything you need to make the best football betting predictions. In most cases, you will also find a helpful graphic detailing either the league or group table the teams are involved in.

Next, we have the prediction or the verdict. This will be what BetFootball thinks is the best bet for this game. This may not be as simple as who will win but will take into account the best price and the most likely outcome. Some examples of predictions on our previews are: Both teams to score, draw no get, total goals, and much much more.

Finally, do not forget to keep scrolling past the prediction because below you will find what is basically a cheat sheet for your own football tips and predictions. If you do not agree with the tip we give, then do not worry. You will find all sorts of stats and information to help you come to your own decision. The content can include: More stats and facts for both teams, line ups, current form, match history and more.

How do we make our football predictions?

Now to see how the sausage gets made. Earlier I mentioned how BetFootball have developed almost scientific football predictions for today's modern gambler; perhaps a better term would be mathematical football predictions. Well, there is some real truth behind this. We use API’s to make our football betting predictions. Now we’re not going to get into a lot of technical jargon here but what that basically means is their picks are made using data and algorithms. Anyone serious about beating the bookies knows this is the way forward. The bookmakers have their systems so to beat them you need one too.

So, after the computer has spat out its results Betfootballs team of sports journalists take it from there. They analyse what the algorithm says and breaks it all up into the predictions you read on the site. This way it is reader-friendly and easier to consume but you still get the benefit of the API. Football predictions made easy!

Where do the Football Betting Odds come from?

All our odds come directly from a wide arrange of bookmakers. These odds, which are available for you to browse and compare against one another. A nice little feature on the site is that the odds are constantly updating. This means even if you read an article posted a few days ago the odds will still be correct when you visit the bookmakers.

The most useful thing we do for our readers in terms of odds is their final prediction always tries to find the best available price. Finding the best value across football betting sites is so important but equally as time-consuming. Having the information provided by our team is a great little feature!
