In this era of sports betting, anyone who has the ability to predict future events would make a rather huge fortune. And yes, there are many who claim to have such powers and regularly offer their services to sports gamblers. I am talking about Soccer Picks onlinesocceradvisor and the websites like onlinesocceradvisor.com that offers such services. Very few gamblers are concerned about how exactly these predictions are done; but if you are among the curious one, this would prove to be very helpful.
Broadly speaking, there are two algorithms that are widely employed in predicting the outcome of football matches. The first one uses the points; outcome of previous games; games with similar opponents; location and weather conditions; and players involved, to evaluate the likely outcome of the game. This process in itself can be used to give a fairly good prediction of how a game would turn out but it is limited to win or lose predictions and as such, a more advanced algorithm is used to predict the score line of individual games.
The second algorithm uses a complex mathematical formulation to predict the exact score line of football matches. It factors in details such as current season matches and points accrued; absent key players, all matches of the team; all matches at home, and away; outcome of last 3 games; outcome of last 6 games; all goals scored in the current season; matches between both teams in the last 3 years; and other minor details in order forecast the outcome of a football match.
One might wonder how reliable these predictions are; but the previous analytical successes recorded by these sites, is what still keep them in business. It seems odd that both betting sites and prediction sites are flourishing at the same time. Betting sites make their money when you bet wrongly while prediction sites gain more credibility if predicted results occur.
On a final note, soccer picks are not reliable( that is why betting sites still exist) and one must exercise caution in placing hopes on such predictions. In all, as in life, nothing is certain in football and you will always need some luck.
