Note: That all three selections in the same match can be different (read on to find out why).

Prediction: The most likely outcome based on percentages generated by the BetPaa model.

Analyst Verdict: If we predicted outcome is not deemed to be ‘Value,’ then the BetPaa analyst will suggest an alternative market for the match based on simulations of the match using team ratings. The number of footballs, on a scale of 1-5 (with 5 being high), that accompany the verdict represents the ‘Value’ this selection offers.

Value: The Value selection represents an outcome where the available odds with the bookmaker are bigger than the probability of the outcome based on the our model, with the number of footballs signifying the level of discrepancy.

Note: Based on the three tips descriptions above, it’s worth bearing in mind that for some matches there may be three different selections.

So, you must be wondering what exactly are the tips we offer — well then, go ahead and continue to read our prospectus on football tips guideline.

Percentage Chance Predictions

For each and every match that BetPaa covers, we provide the percentage chance of all three match outcomes – Home Win, Draw, and Away Win, according to our model, which you can then compare to the Betfair or any Sportsbook price for that matter, to see whether the market agrees. If our model is heavily in favour of one outcome while the betting market thinks differently, this is the time to have a bet.

Analyst Verdict

If we predicted the outcome is not deemed to be Value, i.e., the model and the market are largely in agreement, then our analyst will suggest an alternative market for the match based on simulations of the match using team ratings. These betting markets include Over/Under, Both Teams To Score and Double Chance, etc., The number of footballs, on a scale of 1-5 (with 5 being high), that accompany the verdict represent the ‘Value’ this selection offers.

Value Selections

Football Betting

The Value selection that appears on the tips category represents an outcome where the available odds with the bookmaker are much bigger than the probability of the outcome based on our model, with the number of footballs signifying the level of discrepancy. Value selections are those with four or five footballs accompanying them on the value measure.

Overs/Under Tips

Over/Under 2.5 goals is one of the most popular bets as far as football matches are concerned. Simply, if you bet on over 2.5 goals to be scored, you win if there are three or more goals scored, and if you bet on under 2.5 goals you win if there are two goals scored or less. You can also choose to bet on Over/Under 0.5, 1.5, 2.5, 3.5, 4.5 Goals etc. In the future, we will show the percentages for each of those outcomes based on our model, but for now if our analyst thinks there’s value in betting in the Overs/Under market, it will appear as the recommendation in the Analyst Verdict.

Both Teams to Score (BTTS) Tips

Both Teams to Score, often shortened to BTTS, is an extremely popular bet in soccer where you bet on whether both teams in a match will score or not. If you think that neither, or just one team, will score, you can choose to bet “No” in the Both Teams to Score market. This means you will win your bet if one or both teams fail to score in the match. Again, we hope to show the likelihood of each outcome for each match in one of our future product developments, but as things stand BTTS – Yes or No – is one of the selections that might be made by our analyst Verdict.

Double Chance Tips

A double chance bet allows you to cover two of the three possible outcomes in a football match with one bet. Home team and draw, so your bet is a winner if the home team wins or draws the match. Away team and draw, so your bet is a winner if the away team wins or draws the match. When there is value in the Double Chance market, then that is what our analyst verdict will select their recommendation.

First Goalscorer and Anytime Goalscorer Tips

With top bookmakers such as Betfair, Bet365, and LeoVegas you can bet on both the First Goalscorer in a match and for a player to score at Anytime. In the build up to the match, before the teams are announced, our model compares our predicted chance of a player scoring either first or at anytime to the betting market and arrives at a selection in both. Once the line-ups have been revealed, usually around an hour before kick-off, the market can change significantly, so we re-run the model based on those players we know are included in the squad to arrive at our final selections.

Half-Time Team Talk Tips

What is the Half-Time Team Talk? Taking into account the pre-match expectations, the events of the first half and a number of other factors, we offer updated win probability bars, a Next Goalscorer selection and an updated Analyst Verdict – but be quick, the HTTT is available only at the break.

Never placed a Same-Game Multi before? Sign up with Betfair and get started today. Here are specific league tips that might come handy!

Premier League Tips

Premier League Tips

For every match that takes place in the Premier League, BetPaa will provide an Analyst Verdict Betting Tip. Those selections can come in a range of markets, as illustrated above, but they are all intended to help you beat the online bookmakers. At the start of each season, in the blog section, we will predict those teams we expect to be fighting it out to win the Premier League, those most likely for a ‘Top 4 Finish’ and who looks set for a Premier League relegation battle. These betting markets stay open all season, unless once of the markets gets wrapped up early because of a foregone conclusion, so make sure you are constantly checking in on the BetPaa Expected and Forecast League tables, which tell you, respectively, where a team ‘should be’ based on performances so far and where they are forecast to finish once the model has simulated future fixtures.

English Championship Tips

The English Championship is widely viewed as one of the most competitive leagues around. Therefore, there can often be more value in betting on the Championship than the Premier League. So make sure you check in for each round of fixtures to get BetPaa betting tips for the Championship. Whether you like betting on the match outcomes, goals or scorer markets, we’ve got you covered. Got a strong fancy for who might win the Championship? Or who you think will go down?

Champions League Tips

The UEFA Champions League is the pinnacle of European football. Of course, we cover every match with our betting tips once the competition proper gets started, but we also offer in-depth previews and reviews of the mid-week footy throughout the course of the campaign.

Europa League Tips

With the Europa League now giving teams a pathway into the Champions League, its stock has grown in recent years, especially as those who finish third in the Champions League Group stage get a second bit at the cherry in terms of European football. With participating in the Europa League from such a wide range of countries, those in that know in terms of data and statistics can get an edge when it comes to betting. Our model takes into account the relative strength of leagues all across Europe, which feed into our selection.

Spanish La Liga Tips

Spanish La Liga Tips

La Liga always gets plenty of attention when it comes to El Clasico, when the two most successful clubs in Spain Real Madrid and Barcelona go head to head, but away from the big guns La Liga is a highly competitive league and, as such, offers a great betting medium.

Italian Serie A Tips

SerieA has always been one of the strongest leagues in Europe, but with Cristiano Ronaldo joining Juventus for the 2018/19 season interest has intensified. The Timeform Analyst Verdict on various platforms covers every game in Serie A and we also offer our usual range of statistics to help inform your betting.

German Bundesliga Tips

The big players in Germany, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund, can usually be counted upon to make a challenge for the Bundesliga, but there are plenty of other betting opportunities, especially when the so-called lesser teams face off.

Brazilian Série A Tips

The Brazilian Série A runs from April to December and is a fascinating league in its own right but also gives those who are craving football once the European domestic action has come to a close during the summer months a chance to stay involved. The Brazilian Série A gets the same level of coverage from BetPaa as all our other domestic competitions, so make sure you check out the hot tips from pundits online.

So, the following segment answers few of your unresting questions, only to clarify over the top confusion in case it ever crosses your mind.

Does BetPaa offer Acca or Accumulator Tips?

While BetPaa doesn’t explicitly offer Acca or Accumulator Tips right now, we do give you all the tools to build an informed bet. Use the Match probabilities to find the matches where teams have the highest chance of a win, or switch to Analyst Verdict view and find the best value bets by looking at the number of accompanying footballs. With this sort of betting advice, you can easily build daily, Super Saturday, or Weekend accumulators, but make sure you look out for special Acca insurance offers from Bookmakers such as Betfair’s Acca Edge, which gives you your stake back as cash on Trebles and above if your accumulator falls once short.

Does BetPaa offer Same-Game Multi Tips?

If your bookmaker offers same-game multi bets – like Betfair and Bet365 or LeoVegas – the option to add selections will appear at the top of your bet slip. For example, if you add a Total Cards bet, a Total Goals bet and a Total Corners bet from the same football match to your slip, you can opt to combine them into a multiple bet or place single bets in the traditional way.

Just like a traditional accumulator, each bet needs to land – if just one part of the multiple fails, the whole bet loses. The maximum number of selections that you can choose will depend on the bookmaker that you use, but most allow up to six bets to be combined.

Same-game multi bets may be a new but they fulfil a demand for a market that has existed for some time. For those who prefer to place multiple bets, the choice is now even greater and the option to build accumulators within a single game can provide a much quicker outcome. With traditional accumulators, punters sometimes had to wait hours, or even days, to see if their bet had been successful; with a same-game multi, everything is decided within 90 minutes.

Although BetPaa doesn’t currently advise what to include in your Same-Game Multi Bets, the depth of data available can certainly help to inform your selections. For each match, BetPaa offers bundles of data and statistics with the aim of giving you a better chance of winning. Categories included in a Same-Game Multi that BetPaa can help you with include —

  • Win-Draw-Win
  • Anytime Goalscorer
  • First Goalscorer
  • Match Odds
  • Correct Score
  • Both Teams to Score Markets
  • Handicap Betting
  • Half Time
  • 1st Half Over/Unders
  • Number of Corners
  • A Goal Scored In Both Halves
  • Total Corners
  • Total Goals Over/Unders

When are BetPaa Tips available?

Our analyst verdicts is dynamic and, as such, the selection is usually available shortly after the round of previous fixtures has finished. However, the betting tip is only locked in on the morning of the match, once the market has had time to mature and we can be sure that the tip we are giving is a value selection, so make sure you check back regularly.

How successful are our Tips?

While we offer betting tips for every match, some of our most successful analysts use available online data and statistics from various platforms like Dream11 or dream11 predictions in the past to inform their betting rather than backing the selections blind. For those that do simply want to back our analyst verdict, in the 2018/19 season the English Premier League and EFL Championship showed profits of £53.90 and £59.60 respectively to £10 stakes on one-five ball selections while the German Bundesliga, Italian Serie A, Spanish La Liga failed to show a positive return. All the European competitions we cover performed better in 2018/19 than 2017/18 and we have refined the model again for the 2019/20 season.

Note: Selections are recorded on the morning of the match and P/L is based on the Betfair Sportsbook price at time of publication.
