Having access to good football stats is essential to developing an edge in sports trading.
This article will look at the top 5 best free football stats sites that you can use for your football trading on Betfair.
Top 5 Best Free Football Stats Sites
1. Soccor Stats (Best for Pre Match Research)
In my opinion, Soccer Stats is by far the best free site to do your pre match research. Soccer Stats gives you stats for matches being played in most of the major football leagues around the world.
Stats include recent form, the average number of goals scored, the average number of goals conceded and the percentage of games that ended up with over 2.5 goals.
2. Flash Score (Best In Play Stats)
I mostly use Flash Score to get goal alerts and for in play stats on matches that I am trading but you can also use it to research matches as it provides stats on the last 10 home and away matches played by both teams and also stats on any head to head matches played between the two teams.
WhoScored.com is a good alternative to Flashscore if you are looking for in play stats and also has some good stats that you can use for your prematch research as they provide stats on recent form, head to heads and team news.
4. Footy Stats
Footy Stats is a great stats site for sports traders as they provide stats for over 1.5 goals, over 2.5 goals, under 2.5 goals and lots more that you can use to develop a trading strategy.
5. Goal Profits Free Football Stats
Goal Profits offers some free football stats that is a taster of what you will get as part of their paid football stats software called Team Stats.
The Free Football Stats provides stats like the percentage of matches that finished with over 1.5 goals, over 2.5 goals and over 3.5 goals for 80 leagues across the world.
If you are looking for the best free football stat site then I would recommend SoccerStats.com for pre match research and Flash Score for in play statistics.
I used these when I first started trading football on Betfair and found them to be good free options.
If you are looking for stats software that is more tailored to sports trading, then Goal Profit’s Team Stats is a good option for prematch research, and Goal Profit’s Live Stats Module is good for keeping track of in-play statistics.
Using sports trading software can drastically cut down the amount of time you have to spend on prematch research.
Goal Profit’s Live Stats Module is also great for identifying in play opportunities and can be used to find matches to lay the draw in the first or second half.
