FootySimulator has 2 main uses. Some like to play their simulations on best of 99 or,
if they are subscribers, on best of 999 to get useful betting tips on value, correct

the most shocks. Best of 5 is most accurate but tends to be more predictable and
leads to too many draws.

are generally moving our other competitions to best of 3 which has less shocks
