Review for week ending 20/12/01

A week with a large number of spread bets (including a few corner supremacy bets) but with mixed results. There were some good wins on the Wolves and Ipswich corner supremacies and Newcastle produced a great result when they won 3-1 at Highbury. However there were also a number of losses which meant that overall we finished the week with a small loss of 22. This reduces the total potential profit for the season to 5,106 (an average of 425 profit per week). These potential bets are determined using the guidelines on the Weekly Reviews page.

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). The bet size is determined by using the formula: (840 * Difference between the Soccer Spreads Rating and the spread) / (Volatility * Volatility). For a full explanation of how these bets are determined please see 'How to use Soccer Spreads' and the Weekly Reviews).
