  • Davis cup bias in home/away players
    With Davis Cup coming this weekend, I thought it was a good opportunity to find out how well the model goes. Many people would say that the Davis cup is a completely different game compared to normal tournaments, and if you have been to several countries which host it, I’m pretty sure that you will agree. Although this is the federation cup – which is the female equivalent...

  • College Basketball Unders betting Analysis
    We previously looked at College basketball totals betting and where and when it is profitable. Overall a 5.5% ROI was made, but interestingly some of the larger overlays failed to return a profit. Is this the case for over and unders betting? We will do the analysis and for unders it is shown below. Unders Prob#Bets#Won%Won$Bet$Profit%ROI 45.0%50.0%11654.5%$769.13$230.4930.0% 50.0%52.5%854148.2%...

  • Soccer over betting minimum overlays based on League Level
    The last article I wrote about soccer was about betting the totals, more specifically the unders. We grouped the leagues into different divisions based on popularity and decided what the minimum overlay would be to bet on the unders for certain groups. In this article we will do the same thing but look at the overs. Overs never performs as well as unders in most sports,...

  • Soccer under betting minimum overlays based on League Level
    In a previous article we looked at how the soccer model goes betting totals for different groups based on popularity. Results showed that less popular leagues were in fact more profitable than popular leagues. The results was not as extreme as head to head betting, as still good profits were made in all divisions. Considering that most people know that unders betting...

  • College Basketball Totals Analysis
    A lot of talk in the forum has been with regards to college basketball and the fact that the higher overlays this year have been losses, as opposed to last year when the higher overlays generally performed very well. Is this just random variation or perhaps the model struggles at higher overlays due to injured players and the like? Well we thought we’d find out. Shown...

  • Super 14s free predictions and analysis
    Super 14s predictions have been happening on Sportpunter since 2003. We started off amazingly well, winning profits in the first three years and four of the first five years. In 2004 we recorded an amazing 50% return on investment which is stupidly huge. The last couple of years have seen small losses and because of this it is important to analyse why this is so. Of course,...

  • Soccer minimum overlays based on League Level
    Previously we talked about not quite getting as good 1×2 profits betting on the more popular and more professional leagues. We did manage to win evenly across the board betting totals which is a great result. However more analysis is obviously required in the head to head betting. So based on the groups given previously, I decided to have a look at the results for...

  • Soccer model performance in relation to league level
    On request, I decided to analyse how the soccer model has gone in the past 365 days with relation to the quality of the league. I have deicded to group the soccer leagues in terms of 5 groups, from 1 being the best most popular and more professional group, to 5 being the least popular and least professional. Some of the leagues I will admit are in the wrong place, and...
