The weekly reviews are a complete record of potential bets that you would identify if you followed the instructions on 'How to Use Soccer Spreads' and the following rules:

All recorded spreads are taken from the Racing Post or the spread firms website if the particular spread is not published in the Racing Post (e.g. the IG Match Performance or the bookings supremacies).

Conflicting or complementary bets on the same match are not allowed. For example you would not buy a bookings index and buy a teams performance. Please note that for the purposes of the Weekly Reviews a bookings index bet is deemed to be completely separate from a mini performance bet (although strictly speaking the mini performance index does include the -15 for a Red Card). Of course you can make up your own mind whether or not you play a bookings index and a mini performance on the same game.

For the purposes of the Weekly Reviews the Goals, Corners and Bookings are deemed to be completely separate. This means that you could buy a team's goal supremacy and sell the same team's corner supremacy in the same match.

Bets on 'Groups of Matches' (i.e. selling the total goals in all the Premiership games on a Saturday) will not be allowed unless there are no conflicting or complementary bets on the individual matches. This means that if there are any bets on the goal supremacy or mini performance for a particular Division then a home/away supremacy bet on the whole group of matches would not be allowed. Likewise if there are any bets on the total goals for an individual match then a 'total goals' bet on the whole group of matches would not be allowed.

When calculating the stake for a particular bet the following formula will be used:

(840 * Difference between SS Rating & spread) / (Volatility * Volatility)

However the maximum stake for any particular bet is: 420 / Volatility. Stakes will be rounded up or down to the nearest 1, 2, 5 or 10 depending on the size of the stake. Members will normally calculate their unit stakes using the Excel spreadsheets provided.

No bet is recorded on a match involving a team recently promoted to Division One until after the end of October. Likewise no bet is recorded on a match involving a team recently promoted to or relegated from the Premiership until after the end of September.

The Weekly Reviews are only published once most of the teams in a particular Division have played at least 8 matches in a season. Also from the 2001/2002 season the Weekly Reviews will not include each teams last 2 matches.
