Review for week ending 01/02/01

The FA Cup 4th round meant that most of our betting activity was confined to the Premiership mid-week fixtures. At half time on Wednesday night things appeared to be going well but then in 15 minutes of madness at the Stadium of Light it all went pear shaped. Andy Cole scored a disputed goal for Man United (a clear handball) which triggered a sending off and Cole was then sent off himself along with another Sunderland player! Leeds also scored late against Coventry which meant that the total loss for the week came to 693. This reduces the total potential profit for the season to 4,318 (an average of 254 profit per week).

A buy of the Norwich mini performance against Watford at 19 with IG Index (Soccer Spreads rating 24.1 - Makeup 35) for 12 per point would have produced 192 profit.

A sell of the Chelsea mini performance against Newcasle at 41 with Spreadex (Soccer Spreads rating 34.1 - Makeup 55) for 13 per point would have produced a loss of 182.

A sell of the Leeds supremacy over Coventry at 1.3 with either City or Sporting Index (Soccer Spreads rating 0.78 - Makeup 1) for 140 per goal would have produced 42 profit.

A sell of the bookings index in the Sunderland / Man United game at 40 with Sporting Index (Soccer Spreads rating 27.2 - Makeup 85) for 15 per point would have produced a loss of 675.

A sell of the Man United mini performance against Sunderland at 30 with Spreadex (Soccer Spreads rating 22.5 - Makeup 35) for 14 per point would have produced a loss of 70.

Please note that potential bets are only recorded if the difference between the Soccer Spreads rating and the best spread available is at least a quarter of the spread volatility (e.g. in order to bet on the total corners in a Premiership match the difference between the Soccer Spreads rating and the spread being offered must be at least 0.9). All recorded bets are based on a 'Medium' base unit stake which is then adjusted depending on how much the Soccer Spreads rating disagrees with the spread being offered (for a full explanation see 'How to use Soccer Spreads').
