The basic idea behind SportsBroker is dead simple: teams go up in value when they do well, and down when they do badly. But there are a couple of other things to remember:
When we calculate team performance, we don’t just take into account goals scored or points earned. SportsBroker calculates price changes based on a whole range of factors, including cards, possession and corners.
Because of this SportsBroker is a real test of footballing knowledge. You can’t just look at a league table and expect to do well.
Not all football teams are equal. And we take that into account by weighting relative performance.
For example, if a lowly-ranked team scores a hat-trick against a big team, you’d expect to get a good return for backing them. And if a leading team does what’s expected and thrashes a minnow, you wouldn’t expect to retire.
The riskier your prediction, the greater your potential return. Just like with stock market investments and standard sports betting.
Weighting makes the game much more exciting, because it’s not just about picking which rich, top-of-the-table team is going to win the league. You can’t just buy Manchester City or Arsenal and hope to get rich (though they might still be worth a punt).
We’ll soon be launching a full version of SportsBroker, where you can invest real cash and potentially make proper money from trading teams.
