Spread betting can be very volatile and punters must learn to take the rough with the smooth. Unfortunately this week was the roughest ever! The early strikes of Aston Villa and Bradford together with Arsenal's unruly display at Elland Road meant that we were always looking at huge losses. Some relief was at hand with Man United's 3-0 victory at Derby but overall the week produced a thumping loss of 1,179. This reduces the total potential profit for the season to 3,859 (still an average of nearly 430 profit per week).

A buy of the bookings index in the Charlton / Sunderland game at 32 with City Index (Soccer Spreads rating 42.1 - Makeup 10) for 12 per point would have produced a loss of 264.

A buy of the Man United supremacy over Derby at 1.3 (generally available, Soccer Spreads rating 1.74 - Makeup 3) for 120 per goal would have produced a profit of 204.

A buy of the bookings index in the Southampton / West Ham game at 28 (generally available, Soccer Spreads rating 35.8 - Makeup 30) for 9 per point would have produced 18 profit.

A buy of the time of the first Sheffield Wednesday goal against Coventry at 57 minutes with IG Index (Soccer Spreads rating 70.7 - Makeup 81) for 12 per minute would have produced 288 profit.

A sell of the Home / Away supremacy in the eight Premiership games at 1 with Spreadex (Soccer Spreads rating -1.04 - Makeup -2) for 60 per goal would have produced 180 profit.

A buy of the time of the first Aston Villa goal against Coventry at 53 minutes with IG Index (Soccer Spreads rating 62.0 - Makeup 8) for 8 per minute would have produced a loss of 360.

A buy of the time of the first Bradford goal against Middlesboro at 62 minutes with City Index (Soccer Spreads rating 70.1 - Makeup 3) for 7 per minute would have produced a loss of 413.

A sell of the bookings index in the Leeds / Arsenal game at 46 with William Hill Index (Soccer Spreads rating 32.7 - Makeup 80) for 16 per point would have produced a loss of 544.

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').
