It may take some time, but it is believed that the European football league will become as big as the American football league. With the technology of worldwide television broadcasts and the internet, the league is sure to continue flourishing in the next decade to come. Soccer will always be the most beloved sport on the continent, but football is quickly becoming a close second. Football has arrived in Europe and it is here to stay.
In getting the rank there is a certain formula that the FIFA followed and this is by the average on the points, status and strength of a certain team. In order for a team to hit number one, they should gain more points, less violations and an unending strength. It is indeed tough to hit it since there are a number of teams who are part of the association. Most teams that get in the mark are Brazil, Italy and Germany.
So for this game the predicted odds are Man Utd 100/60 = 1.66, Draw 100/19 = 5.26, Arsenal 100/21 = 4.76. The current odds on Betfair are Man Utd 2.2, Draw 3.3, Arsenal 3.95 Most of you will have guessed where this is heading by now!! The system will comprise 2 filters, firstly a result with a > 50% chance as calculated by the website and secondly the price must be more than 20% greater than the predicted price. So, in this example Man Utd are the pick (>50%), and the actual price is 2.2/1.66 = 1.32 times or 32% more than the predicted price. This is a great example of value betting, you are backing something with a greater than 50% chance of winning at price more than 20% greater than the probability. In the example above, in old money you’re getting 6/5 about a 4/6 shot. If you had one of these every day then soon you would be a millionaire. I cannot think of any other example of where the predicted and actual odds can be compared in this way with such mathematical precision.
Gathering of statistics is of great importance in the sport in order to have a strong basis in identifying who among the leagues have made it on top. Leagues that were able to reach the ranks are given due recognition. The statistic results are also used by different leagues to provide them basis of their performance from the past to present so as to give them opportunities in planning and preparing for future events. These types of data become part of historical archived for the sport.
They can also assess the development of their team through their annual team statistics and standings. Like what happened in their 2006 statistics. Their statistics for 2006 fell down and was almost the same as their 2003 performance. In the 2006 downfall they identified the turnovers as the main cause of the fall. They forced a few turnovers on their opponents that led to lower runs and points for their team.
