Study Says Twitter Is Better Than Bookies At Forecasting Premier League Results.

: 10/13/2017 - 11:59

What we see on Twitter is apparently a better prediction of football match results than bookies' odds.

A study's analysed nearly 14-million tweets from the 2013 to 2014 Premier League season, as well as in-play betting prices.

It found if the combined tone of supporter posts at any given second during a match was positive, then the favoured team was more likely to win than the odds suggested.
