Streaks

Rob asked 10 months ago

I am confused by the streaks filters and what they actually mean. I’ve built a strategy and one of the filters is Consecutive NOT Draws. Home Team (at home): 1 – 2. Does this mean that at no point during the season at home have the home side drawn 2 matches consecutively? Or does it just look at the most recent two matches at home (1-2). One of the matches in the last picks is a team that has seen 2 consecutive draws at home earlier in the season. The example on the filter says the following “Example: between 5 and 10 in the games played away option, you are filtering those matches where the away team did NOT consecutively draw the last 5 to 10 games played away. In other words, the team has a consecutive streak of 5 to 10 games without any draw away (with wins or losses).“ It’s unclear if that means the last 5-10 games at home have not seen a draw or if that means there weren’t consecutive draws. Ie game 5 was a draw and game 7 was a draw but as they are not consecutive it doesn’t count.

Hi Rob,
I will try to explain how filters work by taking your initial example as a reference: “Consecutive NOT Draws. Home Team (at home): 1 – 2”. If the strategy has only that filter, the picks are sent whenever the condition of the filter is met: the last game played by the local team at home did not finish as a draw, or the last 2 games  played by the local team at home are not draws. This type of streak is always taken as consecutive events according to the last games.

The strategy is created replicating this condition in all its historical data. At the beginning this type of filters can be a bit complex to understand.

If you have more questions, please let me know.
