Site Abbreviations Again

This was originally posted back in 2014 so bringing it out again as still get a lot of questions about it.

From time to time I receive emails from people asking what various abbreviations mean on the site. It makes sense to make a blog post that lists them and which can be added to and referred to.

 

General Metrics

BTTS – Both teams to score. Bookmakers often offer markets based on both teams to score and combine it with other bets such as both teams to score and one team to win.

 

Corner Metrics

P – Played which is matches played.
F – For which is corners for the selected team.
A – Against which is corners against the selected team (corners they have conceded).
TOT – Total corners
XC – Cross corners which is home team corners x away team corners
HC – Home corners – corners for the home team
AC – Away corners – corners for the away team
TC – Total corners
CD – Corner difference which is home corners – away corners
Will add abbreviations to this any time they are requested.

New Season New Hopes

For most supporters out there the new season brings new hopes and it’s no different for us here. We have a wishlist of improvements for the site that we are working through. This includes a number of suggestions people have emailed to us over the last 2 seasons. It’s quite exciting but we don’t want to get ahead of ourselves as this is going to be a major rebuild so will take a few months.

The idea is also that one of us will go back to posting corner bets this season. Normally we wait a few weeks for things to settle down but we’ll use the stats we have and on the site to look for bets in the Premier League.

The World Cup is here …… but where’s the data

The World Cup is just a few days away and we’re really looking forward to it. Loads of matches each day to get involved in and excitement all over the world.

We’ve had quite a few messages lately asking us where the data is. Last time round we prepared some data for the World Cup but it’s really hard to do and FIFA could not even vouch for the accuracy of the data so this time round we have not added any data to the site. We would have preferred to do so but instead we can take this time to get everything ready for next season in terms of data as that comes round quickly as soon as the World Cup is over.

We’ll add in a few WC2018 specific posts over the coming days as we have some ideas on what we will be betting on.

Happy 2018 From SSS

Hopefully everyone had a good Christmas and is looking forward to the year ahead. We’re always looking for ways to improve so if you have any ideas then get in touch via email or Twitter.

Premier League is back

Most people have the chance to go on holiday in August but not The Premier League as it is back and we have all the stats as per normal. The new leagues we have added so far this seaason is the Chinese Super League and we hope to add another before the end of the month.

Still looking for anyone interested in writing some articles on the website over the course of the season. We can provide all the stats you want to explore betting angles.
