What is a Football Prediction?
A football prediction is a forecast and these are also referred to as football tips. It takes an informed opinion or educated guess regarding the outcome of a specified game of soccer to form each individual prediction.
🕘 When do you post your soccer predictions?
Our football and soccer predictions and betting tips are posted three days in advance of matches. Any further out than that would make it too difficult to factor in any team news and other information that might affect each game. It also lets us get in early with the best odds before they shorten.
Football betting tips for the weekend
The predictions for the weekend are also available three days ahead of matchday, so for Saturday games, these should be available on Wednesday. Likewise, Sunday’s games will be there on Thursday. If you count Friday as the part of the weekend, these are available from Tuesday!
❓ What types of football accumulator tips are available?
We produce daily free tips and make all of these available on our main football accumulator tips page.

How We Forecast Soccer Results
For each of our predictions today, we don’t stop at indicating what we think that the final result will be. Rather, we provide a correct score for the end of the match (normal time excluding extra time and penalties) as well as half time results.
To do this, a combination of algorithmic and human factors are considered. For an upcoming game let’s say that a prediction was made by using a heavy weighting on the last six results for both teams. It’s something that many mathematical tips sites use as one of their major factors.
That approach doesn’t make much sense if we’re looking at, say, a new Premier League season, just after each team might have actively recruited new players and or changed their manager. We need to think much broader than this.
Head-to-head data can also be misleading in some situations. It might be that Team A has won every match against Team B over the last six meetings, for example. However, if those games were all played more than 10 years ago, and/or since that time an oil-rich nation has taken over Team B, this factor can lose almost all of its relevance.
Another way that some prediction sites get it wrong is when they don’t consider motivational and emotive factors such as local derby rivalry, recent inflammatory comments made in the news, and relegation ‘survival mode’ team attitudes. No team wants to be relegated from the English Premier League, for example, and unexpected results are common toward the end of the season for those avoiding the difficult drop down to the Championship for the following season.
Similarly, if a team has the opportunity to win a certain number of matches to get into the Champions League the next season, you should probably expect them to push harder when it counts.
We take all of the above, and more, into consideration when making our football predictions. Here are some of the additional things that are added into the mix:
- Whether it is likely that will be a clean sheet (i.e. one or both teams does not score a goal). For this, we not only look at the quality of the goalkeepers and their recent performances but also the selection of the defenders (injury-dependent) and which formation is likely to be used. This is weighed up against the forwards of their opponents and the styles of play of each side to decide if we think either or both teams will score.
- News and information about individual players and the clubs involved for each game. It would be remiss of us to ignore publicly available sources that might influence the outcome of a game, so it’s essential to keep our finger on the pulse of the Internet for the latest news.
- The potential for a high-scoring game. For correct score and over/under 2.5 goal predictions, this is particularly important and all feed into our score prediction e.g. whether we predict whether a match outcome is more likely to be 1-0 or 3-1.
