Portuguese Liga Predictions


The Portuguese Liga (Primeira Liga) consists of 18 teams. As with many other European leagues, teams progress throughout the season using the process of promotion and relegation, with the two lowest teams relegated to Segunda Liga, and the two highest teams moving up to join the Primeira Liga. The league became official in 1938, after four years as an experimental league, and has since improved its reputation within the UEFA (Union of European Football Associations). FC Porto, the champions for the 2017-18 year will defend the title in the upcoming season, which begins in August.

The Predictor was designed to use computer estimates from the Inference Index to predict future Portuguese Liga games. The Predictor does NOT account for injuries, or any other factors that may be cause the outcome to be swayed in one direction or another. See my disclaimer page for more on the benefits/downfalls about these predictions: Predictions Disclaimer

Also note, that the Predictor should be used for entertainment purposes only. However, if you do wish to gamble on the Liga, then I suggest checking out our Sportsbook page: Sportsbook Reviews.

All upcoming Portuguese Liga money line predictions are listed below along with the Index’s picks for the odds to win each of the Portuguese Liga games straight-up (SU).
