The RSI is of crucial importance in sports betting as it is directly linked to a law that governs sports betting and more generally gambling.
In order to get the most out of your bets, it is therefore recommended to understand this indicator before betting.
What is the FPR in sports betting?
The RPR or Player Return Rate is an indicator that represents the proportion of money that is redistributed to players by bookmakers.
As you may have understood, the higher the rate, the better!
But the law in France states that it is forbidden to give more than 85% of the money to the players.
This is where another important notion appears, the time limits of the TRJ.
For a bookmaker, it is possible to propose a FPR of 95% or even more on a bet, as long as the average FPR proposed over 6 months remains below 85% (in accordance with the law).
This means that Player Return Rates are variable and at the discretion of bookmakers, which is an important notion in sports betting of all types.
What implications does the FIT have for players?
The FIT may seem useless at first glance, but it is an excellent indicator for making smarter bets and being successful in the long run.
To illustrate this, let’s take a theoretical 85% FPR on a normal soccer bet on a game that is not one of the big games of the season.
This 85% Player Return Rate means that if you bet hundreds of times at random, without analysis or study of the bet, you will theoretically lose 15% of your funds.
This may sound abstract, but it is important to remember that we are talking about long-term bets.
If you make bets from time to time on a few odds that look good to you, you can get away with positive results.
But if you are betting regularly for months on end, making hundreds of bets, it is important to understand how you can lose your bets.
With a low FTR of 85%, you will need (over hundreds of bets) to make an ROI (Return on Investment) of more than 15%.
Barring miraculous predictions and other flukes, a 15% ROI is rare and difficult to achieve.
This means that in the long run, if you have less than 15% ROI, you will have lost part of your starting bets (because this 15% is not redistributed to the players).
