Variables

Stake is the maximum amount to risk per game. Typically recommended stakes will be 50% of this amount. This allows you to match **Odds**Predictor to suit your pocket. Alternatively you may wish to stake less on the lower leagues as bookmakers can sometimes cap these bets to as low as £50 per game.

Rating Factor is the maximum rating change that can occur from one game to the next. So for example if the team's success is expected to be t% and the team wins then the team's rating will increase by (100-h)% of the R Factor.

Bonus is the amount added to the rating change for victories by more than 2.5 goals.

Draw Factor and Draw Change Factor is the average draw % for the league and weighting towards the draw % for individual teams. The individual percentage for each match is calculated from the rating difference of the teams, number of draws achieved by each team and the D and DC Factors. Alternatively if Bookmakers odds have been entered and the Bookmaker Draw Flag has been designated as 'Book' then the expected draw % will be based upon the bookmakers odds.

H-A Factor resets for the start of the season the difference in ratings for Home and Away games. Enter -1 to ignore this factor.

Ind Factor is the independence between home and away results. 100% fully independent.
