To determine how well the bookies rate those players, I will give every player a score based on his performance in relation to his odds starting with 0 at the beginning of the season.

__For a win I will substract the opponents winning percentage, for a loss I will add a players own winning percentage:__

Player wins: -p (opponent)

Player loses: +p (player)

**Example:**

*Player A*vs.

*Player B*,

*Player A*has a winning percentage of 80% and wins.

*Player A*will then get a -0.2 to his current score while

*Player B*receives a +0.2.

This means that a minus score stands for

*underrated*and a plus score for

*overrated*.

__I will take those percentages from the bookies odds displayed on flashscore.com (probably the bet365 ones, but am up for better suggestions).__Just for the record, I will use the following formula to get the winning percentage out of the bookies odds. Assume that will eliminate the margin the bookies take for betting:

p (player) = 1 / [ odds (player) / odds (opponent) +1 ]

All in all, for all that are interested in this, what do you expect to happen? Feel free to leave any suggestions, maybe some ideas how to turn this into a funny game (till the next season starts ofc.) or ask me whatever you like about this.

Maybe use this for some nice odds and just giving an outlet to write it down... Basha was a 2.55 against Struff, I'm glad I took that on... but I took it in a multi, so now I need Thiem to come through.
