If one trains and studies sports betting, one realises that a precise and recurrent methodology is needed to obtain winning results in the long term. This is called the analytical frame.
But more specifically, how do you do it? Where should the information be collected? What information is useful? We often start with the idea of using an Excel file. You start by collecting the results of the championship matches you are following, and on which you want to earn money.
Quickly, average statistics are obtained. Goals scored, conceded, number of home and away wins, …. Then, we often try to compare the rankings (overall, attack, striker, …). Unfortunately, this file quickly becomes difficult to use. Add a column, position it, shift formulas, enter data manually, …
With each new match, you have to make sure that you have retrieved the statistics you are looking for. 1 site, 2 sites, 3 statistics then 4 and then a typing mistake and/or copy/paste errors … In short, it can be hell!
At Bet Assistant, we are aware that the maintenance and scalability of an Excel file is complicated, often time-consuming and error-prone. This is why we have created the statistical analysis frame creator.
This unique feature in the world of sports betting will save you a lot of time! And what’s more, as you will see, it is child’s play.
The analysis frame creator
This is the name we have given to this feature: analysis frame creator.
First step to analyse a match according to an analysis frame: create the frame and collect all the associated data. The good news is that most of this data is already available on the Bet Assistant site. Indeed, they are presented on the Teams, Competitions and even compared on the Matches pages.
Access to analysis frames
In the menu at the top of the site you will find “Tools -> Analysis frame“.
This is where you will find all the default analysis frames and ththose you have already created. This is also where you can create one.
Create an analysis frame
Start by clicking on the “Create” button to start the creation of your frame. You will arrive on the screen below.
Choose a meaningful name for your screen, so that you can easily find it later.
Next, choose the types of bets on which this frame will allow you to bet.
We have grouped the types of bets by the possible results for each one:
- Home or Outdoor
- Home or away, or a Draw or Outdoors
- Yes or No
Please note that it is not possible to select bet types from two different groups. For example, you will not be able to create a pattern that allows you to bet both on a match result and on more than 1.5 goals for example. To do this, you will have to make 2 different analysis frames.
Once these two elements have been filled in, the list of analysis criteria is displayed.
On the left hand side is the list of all available criteria: to date there are 54. In addition, the criteria are categorised to make it easier to find them.
- Ranking: ranking of the team in the competition according to a statistic
- Results: Percentage of team wins, draws or defeats as a function of time.
- Goals: average goals scored or conceded, expected goals or percentage of games with more or less goals.
- Scenario: percentage of matches where the team does not concede or score goals, for example
- Facts of the game: Number of yellow/red cards, number of fouls, penalty, …
- Scores: percentage of success of the bookmaker in judging whether the team is the favourite or the outsider.
- Confrontations: statistics on the teams’ last matches with each other
All the criteria you have selected for your screen are on the right. At the start, this list is therefore empty.
Select your analysis criteria
Now that everything is ready, all that remains is to select your analysis criteria.
When a criterion interests you, you can add it in two ways:
- Following the criteria already selected (if you have 3, it will be placed in 4th position)
- Or directly where you want thanks to a drag&drop (click and drag).
Configure your analysis criteria
Now you need to configure your criteria.
Indeed, adding/deleting criteria in an analysis frame is already great. But being able to refine them for a more precise analysis is even better!
At Bet Assistant, we have therefore provided several parameters to enable you to refine your analysis:
- The number of matches for which the statistic has to be calculated
- Play situations to be taken into account : Home and/or Outdoors
- The importance of the analysis criterion
To make this setting, simply click on the title of the selected criterion.
The number of matches to be taken
Every puntor has his own betting habits. Indeed, we all use different criteria. And even beyond the choice of criteria, the period taken into account in our analyses can be more or less long.
Some will look at the statistics since the beginning of the season. Others, on the contrary, will only watch the last 5 matches. Still others will look at the same criterion from both angles: once over the season, once over the last 3 matches, for the team’s current form.
Thanks to the “Number of matches to be taken into account” parameter, you have the hand on the depth of the matches in your analysis.
By default, this parameter is set to “All” to take into account all the matches already played by the team in this competition and in this season.
Home versus Away or All in all?
Here again, it is a question of refining your analysis and your sports bets. It is in order to adapt to the analysis habits of each person that we have created this parameter.
Indeed, for a home match for example, some bettors only analyse matches that the team has played at home. Others, on the contrary, use statistics regardless of the game situation.
Still others choose different options depending on the type of statistics analysed.
The strength of our tool is that you can do both.
You can have the same criteria twice in your selection: once for the “home versus outside” vision and once for the “home versus outside” vision.
You will thus obtain an ultra-fine analysis.
The importance of the criteria
This parameter is a little more complex than the other two. Indeed, it has no impact on the calculation of the statistics. It has one on the analysis of the match.
The importance of the criterion is personal. Indeed, it is up to you to assign an importance value to each criterion in your analysis. It is therefore of great interest when it comes to analysing a match.
For example, for you, the number of goals scored since the beginning of the season by the home team may have less value than the number of goals conceded in the last 3 games? Or maybe the victory rate over the last 5 games is more important than the number of goals scored in the 1st half?
This is where this parameter takes its full meaning. We will see in more detail how it works when we analyse and use an analysis frame.
Using your analytical frame
Here we are, our analysis frame is created and completely parameterized. We will now be able to use it.
Launch the analysis of a match
You will first need to pre-select a list of matches to analyse and bet on them. Then go to the page of the matches in question. Either via the home page and by searching for the date of the match, or by using the multi-criteria search bar.
Once on the match page, you will find a “Start analysis” button in the match presentation header. A popup will then open, where you have to select the analysis frame you wish to use.
Once you have selected your analysis frame to use, the “Start analysis” button becomes clickable and allows you to start your analysis according to the criteria set in your frame.
Use of the automated analysis frame
The analysis frame you have configured is displayed in a table. This allows you to keep your Excel habits 🙂
There are 3 main parts:
- On the left: the list of the criteria set during the construction of your analysis frame with a reminder of the chosen parameters.
- In the centre: statistics and information calculated with the parameters taken into account.
- On the right: perform your analysis by adjusting the slider according to the values in the centre.
The time saved is enormous! You didn’t need to collect data and copy and paste from several sites: everything is automatic!
Now you have 2 possibilities. Either use the values displayed and carry out your analysis by looking at the statistics as a whole. Or you can use the right-hand side which allows you to refine your analysis and find valuebet in record time.
Indeed, the right-hand side allows you to think as if you were a bookmaker. We all know that the odds offered by bookmakers are probabilities. Therefore, they are percentages of victory or exact score or number of goals.
Thanks to the slider, you will be able to answer the following question: “What are the probabilities have home team to win ?” ou “What are probabilities for draw ?” or “What are probabilities for both teams to score ?”
Thanks to this answer, you get odds and not just “I thing they win”. Your analysis is figure.
You may see it but there is a slider “Avanced mode” in the top right side of the popup.
When you click on it you will display one cursor for each criteria of your analysis frame. This will be allow you to analyse more specific. Each criteria may have is own impact on the final result.
Once you have carried out this analysis you will thus obtain probabilities of achievement for each possible outcome and therefore the associated ratings.
You have therefore calculated an odds like a bookmaker!
Depending on the type of bet selected for your frame, we analyse the associated probabilities:
- “Home or Equality or Away“: we calculate the values as shown opposite.
- “Yes or No” outcomes: we calculate the probabilities of Yes and No only
- Scores or numbers of goals: we calculate the number of goals scored by the home team, by the away team, the total number of goals, the probabilities that there are more or less than 1.5 or 2.5 or 3.5 goals in the match.
Comparison of your odds versus those of the bookmakers
Last but not least, we have to compare our odds with those of the bookmakers to be sure to bet on a valuebet. Rather than going to oddsportal to compare your odds with those of the bookmakers, what could be better than having them already on hand?
To save you even more time, you are presented directly with the highest odds from the list of bookmakers you have identified as favourites. Those where you have accounts. At a glance, you already know whether it’s a valuebet and where you can get it at the best risk/return ratio.
Conclusion on the analytical frame
You may have noticed that this tutorial is longer than the previous ones, but our unique automated analysis frame feature deserves it.
The tutorial can seem complex to use. This is why we wanted to take the time to explore all the possibilities of this very complete tool. At Bet Assistant, we have designed it as a useful tool that will save you an incredible amount of time.
