Welcome to Football Mining.

The goal of this website is to provide accurate predictions of the outcome of football games. To achieve that, big amounts of data from various football leagues are being collected and then powerful machine learning algorithms are being applied, to produce automated game predictions.

That's right! All the predictions presented on this website are produced by a machine and are not influenced by the perceptions of any human "expert".

The main idea behind the development of this system is to explore whether artificial intelligence can beat humans when it comes to sports betting, by making more accurate predictions and generating higher profits.

ROI explained

The graphs that are used on this website to mesure the efficiency of the predictions, are based on the ROI metric.

"Return on Investment (ROI) is the benefit to an investor resulting from an investment of some resource." (Wikipedia)

In our case, ROI is computed as the Net Profit from a bet, divided by the amount of money placed on the bet (investment) and multiplied by 100 (to get the percentage). In all the ROI graphs on this website, it is assumed that the same amount of money is placed on every bet.

**ROI is calculated using betting odds from Bet365
