This approach uses match sequences to calculate the form of a team.
Form is depicted as a function of the changing pattern over recent time. Points are allocated for wins and draws.
The Rate Form system formula has its origins in Professor Elo's book "The Ragin of Chessplayers", which in turn was adapted for soccer by Tony Drapkin and Richard Forsyth, and described in their book "The Punter's Revenge" (Chapman and Hall).Explore
The Recent Goals system is another measure of recent form. The formula has a moving selection of five observations, which means that only the goals scored over a five match sequence are considered.Explore
