Sports betting math is used to evaluate the odds set by the bookmaker.

They are set on the basis of statistical information, the bookmaker's margin, as well as taking into account the distribution of players' bets.

How do I make a mathematical calculation of sports betting? Initially, the probability of each event is determined. Strictly speaking, this is a conditional probability, since it cannot be precisely determined in sports. There are too many factors, including human ones.

For a better understanding, let's take the championship of some country and try to determine the coefficient for the victory of one of the teams based on the table. Take the Swedish championship and the Hammarby team. She plays the next match at home with 22 bet app.

Hammarby has 33% of games won. In this case, the odds for winning should be 3. AIK's lost matches have 28%. The coefficient for his defeat from these data should be 3.5. If we average these indicators, we get a coefficient of 3.25 for Hammarby's victory. It can be concluded that when compiling the coefficients, the offices were based on the general indicators. We got the values ​​from two tables: general and for home and away meetings. Thus, our odds are more in line with the statistics of the teams' games.

Similar simple mathematical algorithms for sports betting can be used to determine odds for totals, handicaps, corners, yellow and red cards, tennis tie-breaks won, etc.
