I’ve now spent eight weeks playing with the Correct Score Indicator.
And I have to say, it’s an absolutely lovely idea.
Every week, regular as a Swiss clock, this neat little piece of software gives me the weekend’s final scores before the games are played.
Seriously, who wouldn’t be interested in a piece of software that could do that?
The key issue is of course: how close are the predictions to the game’s eventual outcomes?
Read on to find out just how good my desktop soothsayer has been…
Unfortunately, CSI has struggled to produce regular, reliable results.
Last time I noted that using the predictions for straight Correct Score betting was a recipe for losing money.
However, I did feel that Over Goals betting showed some promise, particularly when applied to major league fixtures.
This time around therefore, I restricted myself to tips for games within six high-profile European divisions.
- English Premier League
- Scottish Premiership
- German Bundesliga
- Italian Serie A
- French Ligue 1
- Spanish Primera Division
I also concentrated solely on the ‘Over Goals’ markets – always adding up the predicted total number of goals, subtracting 0.5, then finding the best odds available.
So for instance, if the software suggested a 2-1 Home Win, I would put on a bet in the Over 2.5 Goals market, as (2+1) = 3, minus 0.5… equals 2.5. 🙂
Sadly, adding up my profit totals across the eight weeks for these six leagues, I still am not showing a profit.
Indeed, my losses have accelerated with a total loss of over 15 points for the last month:
|Over / Unders Betting||Profit||Matches||ROI|
|22 to 24 Jan 2016||-0.28||62||-0.5%|
|29 to 31 Jan 2016||-0.38||51||-0.7%|
|05 to 07 February 2016||-13.73||58||–23.7%|
|12 to 14 February 2016||5.28||59||8.9%|
|19 to 21 February 2016||-10.05||52||-19.3%|
|26 to 28 February 2016||2.66||61||4.4%|
|11 to 13 March 2016||0.92||56||1.6%|
|18 to 20 March 2016||-9.27||63||-14.7%|
If you’d like to examine the detailed results log, you can do so here.
The supplier of this product has pointed out that it isn’t intended to be used for straight betting.
Instead, the predictions are intended to inform a trading strategy.
However it is hard to see how CSI is going to help any trader as the scores it throws out are nowhere near accurate enough.
I love the idea of the product. If it worked, I could imagine using it constantly.
The trouble is, in my testing at least, it just didn’t deliver.
So it’s into the Failed folder with CSI, I’m afraid. I really have no choice, based purely on the accumulated results data.
