While browsing a professional social network known enough not to mention it, I came across a POST from a developer using our API to develop a project for predicting results for football matches. This should be of interest to a lot of ours users.

Based on FiveThirtyEight SPI-Prediction and API-FOOTBALL, Mark heimer wrote a python program that suggests football-matches that are worth to bet on.
Eveluated on historical data this algorithm would generate a rentability of +2% in the longterm.

This program helps to find favorable betting odds on evaluating public SPI-Ratings

To make clear this algorithm has no guarantee to succeed but it can provide helpful advise on deciding which bet you should choose.
