It’s symptomatic of the scoring system. No incentive to pick draws, away wins or high scoring games. So most of us pick “banker” homes with 1-0, 2-0 or 2-1 score lines, which, statistically is how the majority of matches end up.
Dunno, About 20% of my picks are away wins.
Plenty of people strategise picking likely draws.
Which means 80% aren’t and the away wins will be the top teams v bottom half teams, I’d wager.
Edit - If you look at bookies odds, draws are normally better than 2-1 where’s banker homes are long odds on.
It may be more like 22% and yes , people seem to go for what works for them and they feel comfortable with, such as 1-0s which HKSaddler exploited at the start of 10 seasons ago.
Statistically, everyone should go for 1-0 and 1-1s but that’s not how it works out.
Indeed, just an observation as to why so many predict the same games/scores.
It would have translated as humourous better in real life, but the interweb makes things seem stark.
Hope you had a nicker on those scores you predicted. Fair play.
Ah, now I understand - it was meant for Butts!
Sorry mate thought I had replied to butt’s. Bet you would get a right wedge back even off a pound.
You’d be looking at over a grand for a quid
2-2 would have been 16 or 17 to 1
2-0/2-1 would have been 7 or 8 to 1
