Sports Betting Predictions

Sports Betting Predictions

Anyone betting on sports can make their own sports betting predictions. Some of us predict based on how we feel about the team or athlete. Others make predictions based on statistical data involving player fitness levels, team form over time, and other variables. Either way, making these predictions is an exciting, satisfying element of online sports betting.

How are sports betting predictions made?

Official sports betting market predictions are calculated by registered bookmakers. These ‘odds’ provide a measure for the likely outcome of a sporting event. Sports betting odds are influenced by multiple factors, including popular opinion among sports bettors. Then there’s how well the horse, athlete or team has done leading up to the event (past form), the referee/s, the weather on the day, and even in-game events. Anything that can influence a sports game will impact the sports betting predictions.

How accurate are sports betting predictions?

Important to keep in mind is this: nobody knows what’s going to happen on the day. Sports betting agencies and punters can make predictions all day long; it won’t have an impact on what could happen in the dying seconds of a nail-biter. That being said, those who make the most accurate sports betting predictions are usually bookmakers.

Which sports is easiest to predict?

There are so many sports to bet on, and they aren’t all made equal. If you’re just starting out, pick a relatively straight-forward sport to predict. These include basketball, football (soccer), horse racing, and boxing. Boxing is arguably the simplest, with the fewest variables to predict. One fighter will most likely win, and assessing a single athlete’s form is easier than keeping track of an entire team’s form.

Understanding match stats and predicting odds

Knowing historical match statistics of sports teams is a good way to start predicting odds. When comparing two teams going head to head, look at how many games each team won out of their last 10 games. If these are very similar, one can look at the points difference between the two teams. These match statistics help to paint a clearer picture of who the ‘better’ team is, and this influences the odds.
