The final week of the Premiership demonstrated the danger in betting against teams who have a major incentive to win. Liverpool's 4-0 away win at Charlton was one of our worst results of the season and Chelsea's away win at Man City didn't help either.The two sendings off at St. James's park reduced the deficit but overall the final week of the season showed a loss of 114. This means that the total potential profit for the 2000/2001 season came to 10,245 (an average of over 310 profit per week). To see a profit and loss summary for the entire season click here.

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').
