A very poor week although we could count ourselves a little unlucky as Arsenal should have been 3 or 4 up by half time against Chelsea and the Bradford goalkeeper gave away the simplest of goals to Man United after holding out for over 70 minutes which eventually lead to United winning 3-0. Sheffield United couldn't even manage a goal at home to Watford which meant that overall the week showed a loss of 662. This reduces the total potential profit for the season to 4,795 (an average of 320 profit per week).

A sell of the bookings index in the Arsenal / Chelsea game at 46 (generally available, Soccer Spreads rating 37.3 - Makeup 50) for 10 per point would have produced a loss of 40.

A sell of the bookings index in the Newcastle / Coventry game at 27 with Sporting Index (Soccer Spreads rating 19.9 - Makeup 30) for 8 per point would have produced a loss of 24.

A buy of the Arsenal mini performance against Chelsea at 31 with City Index (Soccer Spreads rating 37.5 - Makeup 15) for 15 per point would have produced a loss of 240.

A sell of the Man United mini performance against Bradford at 36 with William Hill Index (Soccer Spreads rating 30.5 - Makeup 50) for 13 per point would have produced a loss of 182.

A buy of the Sheffield United mini performance against Watford at 23 with Sporting Index (Soccer Spreads rating 27.8 - Makeup 0) for 12 per point would have produced a loss of 276.

A sell of the bookings index in the Ipswich / Leicester game at 30 with Sporting Index (Soccer Spreads rating 21.9 - Makeup 20) for 10 per point would have produced 100 profit.

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').
