A very poor Easter weekend which demonstrated the danger in betting on games where some teams have far more to play for than others. Our worst result by far was the bookings index bet on the relegation battle between Bolton and West Ham which produced a flurry of cards late in the game. Apart from this one bet the other results more or less broke even but overall the week showed a loss of 788 which now means that the total potential profit for the season is 7,814 (an average profit of 260 per week). These potential bets are determined using the guidelines on the Weekly Reviews page. To see a complete profit and loss summary for the 2002 / 2003 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). 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).
