# Multi-track Simple Sequence Technique

The Simple Sequence System is not simply a single approach as there are lots of methods of developing a basic approach. Even you can develop your own. For this reason, this method is sometimes fondly referred to as 'multi-track simple sequence technique'. One method is to utilize a weighting element on each of a series of games.

Here are the fundamental guidelines

A variety of matches are utilized to recall from the forecast date. Let's state that our team has the outcomes listed below (most current on the right hand side):

W D L L W.

This would provide the following points:

3 + 1 + 0 + 0 + 3 = 7.

Now to take into consideration current form, each is provided a weighting element. The earliest match is multiplied by 1 up to the most recent match being multiplied by 5. Obviously this will vary depending upon the number of matches you use. However, for this example it gives us the following:

3 * 1 + 1 * 2 + 0 * 3 + 0 * 4 + 3 * 5 = 20 points.

Now let's state that the away team playing against the team above has the following record:

W W D D D.

They will have:

3 * 1 + 3 * 2 + 1 * 3 + 1 * 4 + 1 * 5 = 21 points.

The points difference HOME v AWAY = 20 - 21 = -1.

Now, depending how you categorize this, it might represent an away win. That is all matches listed below a points difference of 0 = away win, or it could be classified as a draw.

Let's take a look at an example:

For our example we will utilize the last 10 games played by each team. That's the last 10 home games for the home side, and the last 10 away games for the away side.

The match is between Middlesbrough and Bolton Wanderers in the English Premiership played on Jan 20, 2007.

Middlesbrough

L L W W W D L D W W.

This offers;

0 * 1 + 0 * 2 + 3 * 3 + 3 * 4 + 3 * 5 + 1 * 6 + 0 * 7 + 1 * 8 + 3 * 9 + 3 * 10.

This equates to;

0 +0 +9 +12 +15 +6 +0 +8 +27 +30 = 107.

Bolton

L W W W D L L W W L.

This offers;

0 * 1 + 3 * 2 + 3 * 3 + 3 * 4 + 1 * 5 + 0 * 6 + 0 * 7 + 3 * 8 + 3 * 9 + 0 * 10.

this equates to;

0 +6 +9 +12 +5 +0 +0 +24 +27 +0 = 83.

The difference is;

107 - 83 = +24.

This could be identified as a home win. However, depending upon your selected limit levels, it could be classified as a draw.
