If you want to successfully bet on the outcome of the game, it is important to start analyzing the sporting event and doing it effectively. That is the key to placing a winning bet. A bit of dedication, hard work, analytical skills, calmness, and the ability to find information on the Internet - is all you need. In this article, we are going to explain how you can analyze a match, using H2H statistics and video streams of the events. We will also discuss why you need to do so.
The Process of Analyzing a Match
There are some steps to analyzing a match and becoming more efficient with your betting business. In the betting business, it is not about the number of bets you place, or how big of an amount you bet. What matters the most is the regularity, efficiency, and effectiveness.
Firstly, it is important to understand that you can’t be an expert in every league and/or competition, therefore it would be efficient to concentrate on one/two leagues where you can gain the most knowledge and feel confident placing a bet. Stick to this approach, and you will soon develop a much better understanding and knowledge of the game to help you easily see the strong & weak sides and predict the outcomes more expertly. Moreover, try to research a couple of matches/events at once to extract the ones that have the potential to bet on, instead of choosing one event and only then analyzing it.
One more thing to keep in mind is analyzing a match and all its possible outcomes without looking at the odds. Otherwise, you may get biased by the odds offered by bookmakers. When you assess the likelihood of a particular outcome, you find its true value and real odds by yourself. Now you can compare them to the ones offered by the bookmaker.
All of this would be useless without constant monitoring. Observe the events several times to get detailed information on the individual and collective behaviors of the players.
What is Head to Head?
Head to Head stats data exported by sports data-providing companies comes in handy when analyzing a match as the history of matches is a very important element of pre-match analysis. The point of these stats is to show the performance of two opponent teams while competing against each other in the past. This can be anything from the number of goals, cards, fouls & corners to playing style and strategy. As the history of matches is an important element of the pre-match analysis, they help you understand how these teams perform against each other. It also shows you the details of matches (friendly or feisty). In some of the matches where the stats form goes out of the window, the H2H records can help you get the possible opportunity for trading and betting.
Types and Uses of H2H Stats
When analyzing data from H2H Stats you will be noticing two types of columns. This include:
- H2H No
H2H No is simply a number of the H2H matches between teams excluding the “friendly” ones.
- H2H % or Avg
H2H Average is the percentage for a particular outcome. This could be the average number of goals in the H2H meetings.
Yet another important aspect of the analysis is the filtering of the H2H No. If you are looking for value bets and trades with H2H No, you may notice that certain matches stand out with the other H2H % and these can be backed by very good odds of even.
It is, however, important to note that H2H trends may not be enough for having sufficient evidence to decide on a bet. The goal market is very specific and you need some more analysis before taking any decision. You should see the players playing to see how motivated they are. This is where on-demand video streams step in.
The Role of Live Video Streaming in Match Analysis
As above mentioned, before making a betting decision, you should consider observing the players in action. Analyzing a game using video streams is about identifying what a team is doing at any given point in time and understanding why they are doing so. It not only gives you general information on the team behavior but also analyses the system of play. It helps you understand the tactics teams use, the formation of the teams, the players influencing the game, the surroundings, etc.
The Advantages of Using Live Video Streams
To do a precise analysis of a live stream, one should consider such aspects as the behavior of the team: their psychological and physical conditions, and technical and tactical levels. For an instance, the team may play better if they have the right motivation and elevated spirit. On the other hand, if they have lost their stimulus, they may perform worse than was predicted at the start of the season. Injuries are also important as if the key player gets to miss the season due to a serious injury, it will drastically affect the outcome of the matches, and you will have to reconsider your evaluations.
Another important factor to take into consideration is their game style during different phases of the game. This can include:
- What kind of attack do they have?
- Who inserts in the middle and who moves to insert on the sidelines?
- Do they have an aggressive attitude?
You can find out about all of these and many more by following video streams. Once you get a hold of the team’s playing style, it will be easier for you to see the pattern and make the right prediction that will bring you a fortune.
Overall, we have gone through the main components of analyzing matches to gain a competitive advantage against odds and to make an educated betting decision. Do not forget that the main element of success is consistency and keep an eye on the weather forecast.
