### Predicting with exclusion

### The Martingale fallacy

Considered by many a good and successful betting strategy, the Martingale has put a lot of people into a rather uncomfortable position. The forebet team believes that the Martingale strategy is misunderstood and it is not advisable to use it.

If you follow this strategy you will have to double your bet after every loss so that the first win would recover all previous losses plus win a profit equal to the original stake. After the first winning bet you continue with bets equal to the last one. We have to point out that this strategy is mathematically correct if the bookmaker`s odd on which you are planning to place your bet must be at least 2.00.

### Home/Away prediction strategy

This is undoubtedly one of the easiest ways to make your predictions, but probably one of the most effective methods. It is thought that about half of the games in all the leagues end in home wins, another quarter in draws and the rest end in away wins. Therefore, we can conclude that home advantage is real. So having in mind only the home/draw/away results of both sides we can calculate the following probabilities for 1/X/2:

Ottmar Hitzfeld graduated as a math teacher and now he is the most successful German football coach at club level. He won twice the FIFA award for best coach in the world and is one of the only three coaches who won the Champions League with two different teams.(Ernst Happel and Jose Mourinho are the other two).

While playing for the Swiss team, Hitzfeld graduated and received his diploma as teacher of mathematics and physical education.

### Dennis Bergkamp`s mathematical goals

Math is all around us – at our works, homes and definitely in the sports and football predictions.

Frequently we find different connections between math and football, which are used by this game`s greatest specialists. Some of them are basics of the football predictions posted on this website.

Elderly football fans still remember the Dutchman Dennis Bergkamp and his masterpiece goals. Sports commentators describe him as a genius, who mastered the football game to perfection and possessing extremely accurate shot, but what is he saying about himself.

“When I played in Holland I always tried to hit the ball over the goalkeeper. People always questioned me about this. Why would I want to humiliate the goalkeeper or to demonstrate arrogance? But I always explain: When the goalkeeper leaves his post he makes the angle to it less but opens the space above it. What I do isn`t a show, it is mathematics.”
