Football Betting Stats and Analytics

Data can always help when composing football betting tips for today. Over the last five seasons, of the top five leagues in Europe, the German Bundesliga has been the highest-scoring, with just over 56% of games played ending with at least three goals scored. This is well above the other four leagues, with France’s Ligue Un seeing the fewest with just over 47% of games played ending with a minimum of three goals. Always take these stats into consideration for your football prediction.

League Over 1.5 Goals Over 2.5 Goals Over 3.5 Goals
Bundesliga 84.6% 60.5% 37.9%
La Liga 70.8% 50.3% 49.7%
Ligue 1 78.2% 56.3% 29.2%
Premier League 75.5% 52.6% 31.8%
Serie A 75.3% 45.5% 24.2%

What has home field advantage been worth over the last five seasons in Europe’s most popular leagues? The Spanish league has seen the highest win rate for home clubs with nearly 47% of games played won by the home tea, while Italy’s Serie A has seen just over 44% of games played won by the home tea.

Average Goals Advantage In Top Leagues

In terms of average goals advantage for home teams, La Liga saw home clubs earn +0.41 goals per game with Bundesliga and Ligue Un home teams just behind at +0.39 goals per game. Serie A saw the lowest home advantage at just +0.31 goals per game.

League Home Win % Ave. Home Points Won Home Advantage (Goals per game)
Bundesliga 46.0% 1.63 +0.39
La Liga 46.6% 1.65 +0.41
Ligue 1 45.8% 1.64 +0.39

Germany’s Bundesliga saw just over 55% of games end with both teams scoring across the last five seasons, with Italy’s Serie A seeing almost 54% of games ending with both clubs getting on the scoreboard.

Matches Without Goals in Top Leagues

France’s Ligue 1 saw the highest rate of games ending without a goal on the scoreboard, with nearly 8% of games ending without a goal. Both the Premier League and Serie A saw 7.5% of games end without a goal scored while the Bundesliga had the lowest rate at just under 7%. This is a great prediction among football tips because the odds are quite high for No Goals.

League Both Teams Score – Yes Scoreless Matches
Bundesliga 59.00% 4.9%
La Liga 50.00% 6.8%
Ligue 1 58.00% 26.1%

Top Football Betting Tips

Let’s take a look at some of the aspects we cover in our football betting guide.

  • Only Bet Where There Is Value

The odds will be different depending on the bookmaker and value also represents a match where the odds are worth betting on. All football previews that you can find on our site are the games that have value, but the odds will depend on the bookie.

  • Specialise In A Particular League

Knowledge is power. By concentrating on one particular league or competition, you give yourself a better opportunity of finding value.

  • Keep A Record Of All Of Your Bets

Recording each bet placed, the odds you’ve taken and the stake you’ve placed are vital. This helps you stay in control of your bankroll, and learn which markets prove most profitable.

  • Read Football Previews

In the dynamic world of football betting, today’s tips are like gold dust for punters looking to get an edge. These nuggets of wisdom are not just random picks; they’re carefully curated by experts who live and breathe the sport. They analyze everything from team news to head-to-head records, ensuring that their advice stands on a solid foundation of research and statistical analysis.

Understanding the importance of these tips can be the difference between a winning streak and a learning curve. The most successful bettors use this expert insight to guide their wagers:

  • Team Form: Experts look at recent performances to gauge if a team is flying high or going through a rough patch.
  • Head-to-Head Records: Knowing how teams have fared against each other in the past can sometimes predict future outcomes.
  • Player Availability: Injuries, suspensions, and returns all play critical roles in determining how a match might unfold.
  • Managerial Tactics: A change in management or tactical switch-up can significantly impact a team’s performance.

These common betting tips should be considered because they offer more than just guesswork; they provide an analytical approach that considers numerous variables that affect the outcome of matches. For example:

  • Predictions on which teams will score based on offensive/defensive stats
  • Recommendations for over/under bets when two high-scoring or low-scoring teams clash
  • Insight into potential upsets when an underdog has historically performed well against a top team

Match previews are important because you can learn about crucial changes in a team, like suspensions, injuries, transfers, etc. There’s an in-depth analysis of top matches on the football expert picks page on bettingexpert. Always read a few previews from different sources so you can gather enough information to make the best betting decision.

Bettingexpert’s Football Competitions

If you have predictions that are winning from time to time, you should join our competitions where you can win great prizes. You would post free bets for our community to see and if those free bets are correct, you will end up on the table with tipsters that are making the most profits. You can learn more about each competition on the competition page.

You can use other free bets that you find online but that doesn’t mean you will make a profit because you need to win and rely on someone else. So, it’s always better to do your own research and make sure the free bets and tips you post are backed up by statistics.

Bookmakers For Football Betting

It’s unlikely you’ll ever find a bookmaker who doesn’t offer odds and markets on football. This means there’s a huge amount of choice. How can you distinguish between bookmakers? Consider the following.

  • Odds
  • Markets
  • Competitions

Let’s begin with the odds. It’s rare that odds between bookmakers will vary wildly. However, even the slightest difference in odds can cost you profit if you continuously take the shorter price.

It’s also a good idea to find a bookmaker who offers a range of markets. The best bookmakers for football betting offer a huge choice of markets, meaning you have a great opportunity to find something that suits your betting style.
