A busy Christmas football programme produced a large number of betting opportunities, most of them on the bookings indexes. An excellent start with Leeds losing at home and only two cards shown in the Liverpool / Arsenal game was somewhat undone a few days later when Arsenal thrashed Leicester 6-1 at Highbury. Overall the total profit for the week came to 452 which now means that the total potential profit for the season is 5,104 (an average of 392 profit per week).

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').
