With the referee's new leniency when issuing yellow and red cards meaning that our bookings index ratings are too high (this will be rectified by next week) most of the bets were on the time of the first goal. Charlton again cost us money by winning away from home as did the 'freak' result of Portsmouth winning away at Huddersfield. The only two results that went in our favour were Arsenal losing at Bradford and Leicester scoring in the first minute. This meant that we recorded only our third losing week of the season with a potential loss for the week of 87. This now means that the total potential profit for the season is 16,186 (an average of over 770 profit per week).

A buy of the time of the first Aston Villa goal against Watford at 41 minutes with William Hill Index (Soccer Spreads rating 51.4 - Makeup 47) for 12 per minute would have produced 72 profit.

A buy of the time of the first Sheffield Wednesday goal against Derby at 60 minutes with IG Index (Soccer Spreads rating 69.2 - Makeup 22) for 11 per minute would have produced a loss of 418.

A sell of the time of the first Leicester goal against Middlesborough at 48 minutes with either IG Index or William Hill Index (Soccer Spreads rating 41.3 - Makeup 1) for 8 per minute would have produced 376 profit.

A sell of the time of the first Coventery goal against Manchester United at 68 minutes with William Hill Index (Soccer Spreads rating 58.5 - Makeup 65) for 11 per minute would have produced 33 profit.

A sell of the Arsenal mini performance against Bradford at 42 with William Hill Index (Soccer Spreads rating 34.7 - Makeup 15) for 11 per point would have produced 297 profit.

A sell of the Charlton mini performance against Stockport at 36 with William Hill Index (Soccer Spreads rating 29.1 - Makeup 65) for 10 per point would have produced a loss of 290.

A sell of the Portsmouth mini performance against Huddersfield at 13 with Sporting Index (Soccer Spreads rating 6.8 - Makeup 30) for 11 per point would have produced a loss of 187.

A sell of the time of the first Everton goal against Wimbledon at 55 minutes with Sporting Index (Soccer Spreads rating 41.8 - Makeup 53) for 15 per minute would have produced 30 profit.

Please note that bets are only recommended if the difference between the Soccer Spreads rating and the spread being offered is at least twice the margin between between the top and bottom of the spread (e.g. in order to bet on a bookings index the difference between the Soccer Spreads rating and the spread being offered must be at least 8 points, in order to bet on a mini-performance index the difference between the Soccer Spreads rating and the spread being offered must be at least 6 points). The unit stake is determined by dividing the volatility of the spread into 210 (see the 'Medium' stakes in the sample unit stakes table) and then adjusting this base unit stake depending on how much the Soccer Spreads rating disagrees with the spread being offered (for a full explanation see the page 'How to use the Soccer Spreads Ratings').
