If you’ve never heard of prediction betting before don’t worry, neither had we.
That’s why we asked the team at FanBet to tell us more, after all, they coined the phrase.
How does it work?
Prediction betting is a simple experiment where you enter your daily picks first, and then see the odds.
We are trying to determine if making your picks first and then entering your bet amount based on the odds, is a more profitable strategy for sports bettors.
Odds are made by bookmakers and often the underdog receives inflated odds to sway your betting picks. Or you may think bet x has better value and place a wager accordingly.
Whatever your strategy, it’s nice to have a second data set to analyse.
With this in mind we built a simple betting game, called Pick 6 Predictions.
Each day there are 6 fixtures to predict.
These are typically football matches.
You only see the games, no odds info.
You make your picks purely based on the head to head matchup.
Once your picks are made, you open your betslip and see the odds.
Here you place free bets with a daily bankroll of 1,000 credits.
The game tracks your win/loss ratio, pick percentage and weekly bankroll.
You win ACCA style bonus credits for 4 or more correct picks out of 6 per day, as well as rewards for your trophy cabinet.
The top player at the end of the week wins a cash prize, paid into Paypal.
At present we display the football predictions for the daily games below the Pick 6 Game.
This gives you insight into the daily picks being made by players.
There is no fee to play the game but you must be over 18 to win a cash prize.
In time we will add your picks history so you can see your statistical performance with this strategy over time, and then decide on the best way to place sports bets moving forward.
