What does Prediction Risk mean?

Explanation of Risk Rating

Prediction Risk represents how often a team scores or concedes goals within close proximity of each other. For example - if Manchester United Scores a goal at min 55', and then concedes immediately at min 58', it will increase their Risk rating. The more times this happens across a single season, the more risk there is of unexpected goals occurring.

What are the Forms on the Homepage?

What is the Backtesting feature on Match Search?

Backtesting feature tests all bets that fits your match filter in the past. For example, if you set Over 2.5% to 80~100%, it will test up to 300 fixtures in the past that fit this criteria, and calculates the return for every odds market in those fixtures had you bet on them. This way, you can test how profitable (or unprofitable) your filter is!

How is the profit dollars calculated? The formula assumes that you bet $100 on the market each time. If your bet wins, it returns the the winnings (ie. If the odds were 2.5, it will return $150 because it's $250 - $100). If your bet loses, then it subtracts -$100 because you lost your stake. There is no complicated bankroll calculations.

What happens if I sort the columns?

If you sort any of the column (ie, Sort by Ascending or Descending), then the system also backtests past fixtures by using the sorting you selected. For example, if you sorty by BTTS descending (Highest to Lowest BTTS %), then it will backtest fixtures with the highest BTTS % in the past first. It will backtest until you hit the limit (100 or 300 for premium users).
