Soccerstats is a football website used by a large number of punters to help guide their betting on the beautiful game.
Here we have a look at the site, what features it offers and how you can use it to assist your betting.
What is Soccerstats all about?
Soccerstats contains detailed stats from over 150 leagues all over the world. This includes leagues in Europe, South America, Asia and Australasia.
For some of the main footballing countries, data is included for leagues right down to the lower leagues.
For England for example, there are 14 leagues covered, including the Premiership, Championship, Football League, Conference and Women’s Leagues.
There are 8 German leagues covered, 7 Spanish, 4 Scottish, 11 Swedish, 3 US and so on.
For each league, you can look at stats for a whole range of different metrics across the leagues, including:
- Last 8 games form table
- Home and away form table
- Goals table – showing average goals per game for each team plus number above 2.5, 3.5 goals etc
- Both teams scored table
- Clean sheets table
- Scored in both halves table
- Half Time table (1×2 and goals tables)
Plus a whole host of other stats.
Then you can look at each team and see a wealth of other statistics. Click on Arsenal, for example, and you can see:
- All results for the season
- Home and away advantage stats
- Breakdown of correct scores by home and away fixtures
- Goals per 15 min in matches over the season
- Percentage of games they scored first versus opponent scoring first
- In-play stats (minutes leading vs minutes behind)
- Goal types analysis (i.e. equalizers, winners scored and conceded)
- Team scorers table
- Defence/offence tables
- Half Time stats
And a great deal more besides that. So a huge amount of information to potentially aid your betting.
How can you use Soccerstats to help your betting?
There are obviously a myriad of ways you can use soccerstats to aid your betting.
By looking at one of the specialist markets (like both teams to score, clean sheets, first half performance), you can instantly see the stats for various teams on the Soccerstats website.
So you can identify potential value very quickly. Some teams tend to play in a certain way – some defensively, some much better in the second half, others tend to score first. Using these stats will allow you to see which odds are out of sync with the team’s performance in the particular statistical metric.
So for example, you might look at the stats for Southampton and see they were very good in the 2015-16 at home in the first half of their games, being ahead in 12 of their 19 home matches at half-time. So if you were getting odds of 2.5 or above on Southampton being ahead at half-time at home, this may well represent value.
Any of the stats could be looked at in this way and provide an edge on other punters in seeing potential niche angles that aren’t immediately obvious if you haven’t studied the stats.
All in all it Soccerstats is an excellent website and we think looking at the kind of stats they present should be the basis of any football betting strategy.
