A roller coaster of a week which demonstrated the highs and lows of spread betting. Some dubious refereeing decisions on Saturday cost us money (Newcastle being given a free kick six yards from goal and Portsmouth's penalty resulting in their third goal) as did Man United's three goals in the last five minutes against Everton on the Monday night. However an excellent result on the cross corners market in the Norwich / Leicester game and Grimsby's 3-0 defeat of Ipswich meant that overall the week showed a profit of 1,337. This raises the total potential profit for the season so far to 1,701 (an average profit of 567 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 Excel spreadsheets which are sent to all members. For a full explanation of how these bets are determined please see 'How to use Soccer Spreads' and the Weekly Reviews).
