Tooltips

Everything marked with a * has a tooltip attached.

Filters

The filters helps you retrieve the games you may be interested in. They look like this and exists on the games/start page and on the stats page.

Period

Simply sets the filter to a period in time. Betbot never looks further ahead than one week scince it needs fresh data to make accurate predictions and pre-game analysis.

Method

Select what method you want to filter by. Betbot.soccer currently has two different methods for making game predictions.

Betbot

This is the main predictive model. It takes in hundreds of different data points, every statistic you can think of - as well as weather, distance between teams, and what people say of the teams on social media. Betbot then uses old games, today over 15 000 games to look for similarities and for trying to make an accurate prediction.

Twitter

The other model is purely based on predictions based on Tweets regarding games. Today the database contains of over 500 000 historical tweets that the model learns from for predicting upcoming games. This model may not be as accurate but it gives an interesting second opinion and tend to have a better eye for underdogs!

Likelihood

Both models Betbot has gives an indication on how likely the predicted outcome is. The higher the likelihood, the higer the chance is that the prediction will become true. NOTE: Not always, but often a higher probability results in the odds for that sign becomes lower.

Odds

Sets an odds interval of the currently selected model. The higher the odds - the higher the potential return.

Games

The games page is simply the start page. Here all games can be found by filtering and going trough the pages. By clicking on a game a detailed view will appear. That detailed page can be shared to Twitter.

Stats

The stats page exists as a sort of record of how well Betbot has performed predictions over time. It can also be used for simulating betting strategies.

Percentages

This simply shows how many of the currently filtered games that Betbot correctly has predicted.

Winnings

The idea with the winnings graph is to show how much potential money one would have gotten in return if betting on all the currently filtered games.

Api

For developers there is an API available making it possible to fetch all games and its corresponding data. It needs authentication. For access - don't be a stranger - get in touch.
