How Betting Stats Help You Make Wise Bets

Last updated on August 3rd, 2022

All sports bettors know how crucial statistical analysis is in the betting industry. These help you make educated and data-driven decisions. For every sport that you want to bet on, these statistics will serve as a guide.


UK sports bookmakers use various types of statistics when it comes to creating their odds. They will have different databases so that they can make sure that they have the online betting markets correctly priced. 


This is why, as a bettor, you must always check the betting stats before placing your wagers in trusted bookmakers. With so many factors at play during any given sporting event, it is definitely worthwhile to use statistics to help you place wise bets. Here are a few online sports betting statistics you should definitely be aware of. 



#1 Match Winner and Goals Per Match

The Match Winner stats will show you how often a given team has won at home, away or when there was a draw in a game. Using these stats, you will be able to figure out how much advantage a team will have when playing at home or away for future matches.


Meanwhile, Goals Per Match betting stats will give you a comprehensive overview of the efficiency of an individual or team. By understanding these stats and taking note of them, you can maximize markets with relatively high odds like Both Teams to Score or Anytime Goalscorer. These are betting stats that, when combined together, will produce excellent outcomes. 



#2 Over/Under Goals Tables

The Over/Under market is very popular among all bettors. Because it is commonly sought after by many, you can often see this betting market on almost every sport. For this reason, checking out Over/Under Goals tables has always played a crucial role when it comes to placing bets. These betting stats will help you know the average performance and consistency of a given team or player.



#3 Head To Head Statistics

One of the betting stats that you should consider before placing your wagers is the head-to-head stats. These will help you know how players or teams have been performing against each other. You can often find this being used in team-based sports such as football. If you check out football betting guides, you’ll know that one of the strategies used by bettors is to check on the head-to-head stats.


Bettors for local football clubs like Manchester City and Liverpool often make use of these to be able to determine potentially profitable trends.

You’ll also want to keep an eye on key players being injured or suspended, pitch conditions, weather, as well as home and away form statistics.


If you’re looking for some more detailed figures, however, you can start delving into expected goals, expected goals against, chances created, chances against, shot locations, and set-piece effectiveness.


While researching variables that can influence your picks, you should be able to identify trends that you can use to gain an edge. You can also record all your bets to review them, so you can duplicate where you went right and improve where you went wrong.


Although it’s not a perfect science to use statistics to accompany your betting, there’s unquestionably plenty of value in using stats to give you an advantage.
