The group stage of the competition is over and we now enter the exciting knockout stage of the World Cup. Senegal will count themselves as the most unlucky team, having been knocked out by virtue of a greater number of bookings. With all the data that’s collected on football matches these days, surely there’s got to be a better way of deciding which team should go through.
Here’s how the infogol tips performed.
3 draws early on in the 3rd round of matches brought into question infogol’s method of always predicting a win for 1 team or the other, but it proved to be only a temporary blip, with no further draws in the round. 9 wins from the 16 matches increased the overall profit on their predictions to +6.95 points.
They correctly predicted the result in all 4 of the final day’s games, the the four-fold accumulator paying over 30/1 on Betfair. Great for anyone who backed it.
The verdicts didn’t initially look to be going well in the final round of games, but managed to bounce back well and are now only showing a small loss of -0.78 points.
A few more value selections this time round and a profit in 6 of the 11 matches where a value bet was provided, increasing the overall profit to +6.60 points.
So far the Predictions and the Value bets have performed well and are showing a reasonable profit.
I break from the action today before things start to hot up as we enter the knockout stages. We’ve already seen Germany knocked out and some of the other favourites have looked far from convincing in their group matches.
Are we going to be more upsets in the knockout stages and if we do, will the infogol app predict them?
