Value Soccer Picks

The Value Rating column above gives you a star indicator out of 5. This is calculated by comparing the % of picks on a selection with the odds of that selection. If the percentage of picks is higher than the chances according to the odds, that is a sign that the selection could be a value bet. Sort this column and look for selections with a high number of stars. 

Soccer Predictions Most Likely To Win

Perhaps the biggest indicator of a tip most likely to win is the odds. Whilst we will always recommend that you search for value soccer bets, we appreciate that some like to combine short odds bets. If you want to see the shortest or longest odds picks then filter the column marked odds

Explain the soccer Predictions with High Confidence Ratings

For each soccer prediction listed above, we show the % of picks on that match or market which are in favor of the selection.

For example, if there are 100 picks on Luton Town v Man Utd and 50 of the picks are on Luton, 25 on the draw, and 25 on Man Utd, then Luton will have a confidence rating of 50%.

Many of our users like to place bets on soccer picks with a really high confidence rating according to these stats.

What does the OLBG Star Rating for soccer Picks Mean?

The star rating compares the % of win picks with the bookmaker odds. The higher the star rating, the better value the selection is according to the combined wisdom of our soccer experts.

A 90% confidence rating on an even-money chance (50% in betting terms) will have a strong rating. Whereas an even-money chance with just 25% of picks supporting it will have a poor rating.
