The importance of statistics in betting

If you have read any of my last posts you will see how I talked about the importance of statistics in sports betting. Today I want to expand a little more on this topic because I think that for those people who like soccer and want to start betting, it can help them.

For people who are passionate about soccer and know the teams well, this knowledge base will be perfect for them, since it could be said that they have a certain advantage when it comes to placing their bets.

In betting, information is power

We all know that betting on the outcome of a match without taking into account the evolution of a team, whether they are playing to stay in the category or any other remarkable situation, is quite risky.

But if on the other hand we know that one of the two teams is coming from a winning streak of several games, but is still close to the relegation zone, and is facing another team that is in the comfortable zone of the standings, it can make it difficult for the other team.

Personally I assume that all teams go out to win, regardless of whether they are the last or the first in the standings, what I do is to look at many details such as:

  • Evolution of the team (winning streak, draws and losses).

  • Physical condition of the players (the emotional one is also important).

  • If the team plays two matches during the week (Champions/Europa League/friendly and league).

  • Injuries or player absenteeism.

  • Goal tendency of the strikers in the last matches.

  • Record of goals conceded.

  • Winning or losing trend at home and away.

If they are fighting for European places, to avoid relegation or are in the middle of the table.

These are just some aspects that I always try to take into account when placing a bet on soccer, although it can be extrapolated to other sports. Obviously it is not an infallible system, far from it, and there will surely be other people who gather much more statistical information, but as a basis to start betting on soccer it is enough.
