What are Football Stats?

For years football lagged behind sports such as American football, basketball and baseball for statistical analysis. It is easy to see why. As the game is so fluid, many people dismissed the usefulness of stats, preferring to analyse the game by watching matches.

However, this has now changed. These days football is no longer a statistical philistine and finding advanced metrics for big and small leagues alike has never been easier.

Football statistics come in all shapes and sizes. The most common involve condensing discrete actions down into an easy to interpret number. Examples include the counting the number of goals, assists or clean a team/player manages over a series of time.

Football stats do not have to be numbers, though. For instance, heat maps — a visual representation of the average position a player/team takes up on the pitch — does not use any figures at all.

 

Why are Stats Important For Betting?

Football stats are vital for bettors. Once only used by experienced gamblers, more and more novice punters are also seeking them out to gain an edge.

Stats can often hold the key to predicting how a match will go, or which team is most likely to win a competition. The best way to illustrate this is by giving some examples.

If a side who has conceded a lot of goals takes on one of the top scorers in the division, it is likely that the latter will secure a big win. Using this information smart punters would likely bet on them to win and there to be Over 2.5 Goals.

This is just one of the many scenarios in which statistical analysis can be extremely helpful in making intelligent wagers. Make sure to head over to our Stats Centre for all the stats you could ever need.

 

Key Football Stats to Help Your Betting

Goals & Goals Conceded

The most simple football stat of all is goals and goals conceded. These metrics can be used to help with several different bets.

As well as making predicting individual games a lot easier, goal stats can also assist in making first/anytime goalscorer bets. Top goalscorer bets can become easier too.

xG

Expected goals — more commonly referred to as xG — is becoming increasingly popular in football media.

Put simply, it is a statistical impression of how many goals a team should have scored over a period of time. Its uses for betting are numerous. If a team has been underperforming their xG over an extended period of time, eventually they should revert to their average.

Spotting a statistical trend and betting on an underperforming xG team to win — or backing an over performing team to lose — can lead to a significant payoff as the odds are often generous.

Yellow & Red Cards

Betting on yellow and red cards is becoming increasingly popular among punters. Checking out Cards & Match Booking Points stats before you place your wagers is extremely important if you want to maximise your chances of being successful.

Obviously, teams that tend to get into trouble with the referee more frequently make good candidates for a Over Booking Points bet. In contrast, you will likely want to avoid sides with an exemplary disciplinary record.

Corner Stats

Much like Booking Points, betting on the amount of corners in a game has become increasingly prominent in recent times.

The same formula applies here. Make sure you consult in-depth Corner Stats before placing your bet.

 

What Are Football Streaks & Why Are They Important?

Streaks are a much discussed aspect of football. Winning streaks and losing streaks are all about one thing, momentum.

Any football manager no matter the level will tell you that this is a vital ingredient in a successful team. Due to this, you should always check each side’s recent form before selecting which one you expect to win.

It is not just winning and losing streaks that can be helpful, though. Individual and team scoring streaks can be used to gain an edge on any goal scoring bets.

 

Football Streaks to Lookout For

Winning & Losing Streaks

Winning streaks are put together by teams with momentum and consequently have their tails up. Losing streaks, on the other hand, are always posted by teams in poor form and with little-to-no momentum, playing matches with their head down and almost being beaten before they take to the pitch.

That is why it is definitely worth letting your betting be influenced by streaks. Of course, as ever with betting, there is no such thing as a sure thing, but this is as close as you will get.

BTTS Streaks

Both Teams to Score is consistently one of the most popular football betting markets around. If you are one of the many punters who like to partake in BTTS betting, we have good news for you.

The Punters Page tracks Both Team to Score streaks from all of the world’s top leagues so you don’t have to. This significantly increases your chances of placing a correct wager.

Over 2.5 Goals Streaks

As with BTTS, keeping tabs on which teams are on an Over 2.5 Goals streak can be challenging.

Again, this is where the Punters Page comes in. We keep track of teams large and small, so deciding on which teams you should be betting on could not be easier.

Player Scoring Streaks

So far we have only highlighted football streaks that refer to teams. However, streaks can also be used to make better player bets.

If a striker has scored in each of their last six games, placing a bet on them to net again is a good idea. In contrast, if someone is on a Christian Benteke-esque goal drought, they should probably be avoided.

 

Longest Streaks in Football History

Winning Streak

The longest winning streak in Europe’s top five leagues was registered by Bayern Munich during the 2019/20 season. This was one of Die Roten’s best ever teams.

After a terrible start to the season, Niko Kovac was replaced by Hansi Flick in the managerial hot seat. Flick had an instant impact, restoring some senior players to the side and making a few tactical tweaks as Bayern went on a terrific run. All in all they won 23 straight games in all competitions, ending the season as Bundesliga, DFB Pokal and Champions League winners.

Just behind Bayern in the winning streak stakes are Real Madrid who were victorious in 22 straight games during the 2014/15 campaign. In the 2020/21 season Manchester City also managed 21 straight wins.

In the international sphere two teams are tied for the most consecutive victories. They are Brazil who won 35 games in a row between 1993 and 1996. This included a triumph over Italy in the 1994 final — albeit on penalties.

Spain have also accomplished the feat, recording their remarkable winning streak between 2007 and 2009. That La Furia Roja side featured some magical players, including the best midfield partnership of all time: Andres Iniesta and Xavi.

Losing Streak

The longest losing streak in football history is believed to have been recorded by Antigua Barracuda FC. Never heard of them? We don’t blame you.

Back in 2013 they became the island’s first ever full-time football team and plied their trade in the United Soccer League. It did not go well. They lost all 26 of their league games with the gulf in resources in the division a big reason why.

A special mention to Sunderland as well. During the 2002/03 season they slumped to an incredible 15 straight losses. This is impressive, considering they were a fairly well resourced Premier League side at the time so you would expect them to at least grab a draw.

Scoring Streak

During the 2015/16 season Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy attracted attention across the world for scoring in 11 straight Premier League games.

It was an incredible feat and was made even sweeter when the Foxes went on to clinch the title at the end of the season. However, Vardy’s exploits are not enough to put him near the top of the all-time list of player scoring streaks.

Unsurprisingly, Lionel Messi leads the way netting in 21 straight games during the 2012/13 season — a campaign that La Pulga ended with 60 goals in all competitions. Just behind him is German legend Gerd Muller with 16.

 

What Are Football Trends & Why Are Soccer Trends Important?

Football trends are patterns that occur over time. The most obvious example is a team’s recent results but patterns can also emerge over a longer period of time.

You might think that paying any attention to trends is not worthwhile. Although it is always worth remembering that each football match will feature a unique blend of shorter term factors, you should not discount the influence of trends entirely.

 

Football Trends to Lookout For

Head to Head Record

Prior to placing your bet it is always worth checking out the head to head record of the two teams involved in your selected match.

This can be particularly useful if the sides have played each other recently. Looking too far back at past results does not have as much value.

Recent Form

It should go without saying that you check each team's recent form before placing a bet. As we mentioned previously, momentum is so important in football.

Therefore, a team coming into a game on the back of a great run of results is more likely to be successful than a side struggling to win consistently.

Managerial Records

An often overlooked football trend to consider is the head to head record of the two managers involved in your selected game.

Football is more tactical than ever these days. If one manager has consistently outfoxed the other in their previous meetings it follows that you might fancy them to do it once again.

 

Tips to Avoid Losing Streaks When Betting

Understand Why They Happen

The first thing you need to realise is that losing streaks will occur. No betting strategy has ever relied on every bet being a winner and indeed even the most successful bettors encounter losing runs.

Knowing that losing streaks happen will eliminate any shock or panic when they eventually do, which will stand you in a better position of dealing with them.

Keep to Tried & Tested Methods

Keeping your discipline when betting is always important, but particularly when you're going through a bad run.

It can be extremely tempting to start increasing your stakes or chase your losses but this almost always ends badly. We've all heard the saying ‘only risk what you can afford to lose'. You may get lucky once or twice where chasing gets you out of a hole, but long term it can be disastrous to your bank roll.

By maintaining discipline, you'll limit the damage to your betting bank and be well on your way to overcoming your losing streak.

Take a Break if Required

A common mistake for bettors is the idea that you need to be active every day there are games/events scheduled. Wrong. Giving yourself some space now and again is good practice.

If you feel that a losing streak is going to affect how you operate and potentially lead to poor decisions then taking a break will help clear your mind and recharge your batteries. It's almost impossible to make consistent profit based on ill-researched bets and a stressful mind.

Look at Your Wider Record

When you encounter a period of unsuccessful bets it can be difficult to see the wider picture. However, it is vital to do this so you can gain a sense of perspective.

Instead of focusing on the times you have lost over the past week or so, extend your analysis out to a month or even a year. Most betting apps allow you to look at this sort of data easily and it can be an important resource if you are ever on a disappointing betting streak.
