RATINGS AND FORECASTS BY THE LEGLESS SCOTSMAN
(Since 2001)

Power ratings are calculated after every match but I've used varying methods during the years (still trying to find the best possible way to do this because it is hard to measure the elements of humans and luck). Different values from a certain amount of matches affect my ratings (e.g. Shots on Target) and I calculate those values with a certain formula and the result is a power rating. The bigger the difference of two teams, then more probable is that the bigger rating team wins. The closer the ratings are, then more equal the teams will be.

Remember: if betting was an easy way to earn money there would be no betting shops. And never ever put your household money to betting because you should be prepared to lose the money you are betting. Muista: jos vedonlyönnillä ansaitseminen olisi helppoa, niin ei olisi firmoja, joissa lyödä vetoa. Ruokarahoja ei kannata missään nimessä iskeä vedonlyöntiin, vaan jokaisen vedon kohdalla pitää olla valmistautunut siihen, että menettää rahansa.

Hopefully these ratings will help you someway to decide what bets you're going to make.

PS. My main focus will be on English, French, German, Italian, Scottish and Spanish football leagues. If I have time I may calculate other leagues as well.

Since 1.1.2023 I add points to see how I'm doing:
Right forecast (home or away): 1 point
In a case of a draw, if the difference is between +15 <> -30: 1 point
If both ratings are exactly the same, then any result gives 1 point
Any other case: no points.
