WhoScored Update 30

It didn’t turnout to be the best of weeks for the WhoScored writers, with most finding profits hard to come by.

The Championship

The decline in fortunes for their Championship predictions continued, with just 3 correct results from 14 matches, since the last update. A loss of -3.86 points for the correct results and -11.0 points for the correct results mean that overall they’re now showing a combined loss of -19.31 points.

Leagues One & Two

The League One predictions manage to keep their head just above water with a loss of -0.53 points for last week’s mid-week matches, but a profit of +2.49 for the weekend games. Overall they showing a combined profit of +2.38 points.

The slump continues with their League Two predictions. The +30 points profit showing at the start of the month now sees a long time ago. A combined loss of -7.34 points in mid-week was followed by a further loss of -10.41 points at the weekend.

Overall they’re now showing a loss of -3.85 points.

Scottish Premiership

Things also took a turn for the worse up in Scotland. A loss of -0.85 points on the week, for the correct results and -7.0 for the correct scores, see their overall profit drop to 3.31 points.

La Liga

There was also little cheer in Spain where they made a profit of +1.88 points for the correct results, but a loss of -4.0 points for the correct results, taking the overall deficit to -16.52 points.

Bundesliga

The only real bright spark came from Germany, where Daniel Busch managed 5 correct results and 2 correct scores from the 9 matches played. A profit of +2.06 for the results and +8.0 for the results, see the overall loss reduced to -56.6 points.

Serie A

Over in Italy they were correct with 50% of the games and got the score spot on in 1 of the matches. A small loss of -1.6 points for the results and -2.0 points for the scores, saw their overall profit reduced to 15.37 points.

 

WhoScored Update 29

Premier League

The WhoScored Premier League writers were successful with the result in 6 of the 10 matches, but didn’t manage the correct score in any of the games. A profit of +0.92 points for the results and a loss of -10.0 points for the correct scores, brings the overall lose to -9.24 points, since I started monitoring the selections.

The Championship

As with last weekend there was 5 correct results and just 1 correct score for Barnsley’s 1-1 draw with Sheffield Wednesday. Losses of -0.74 points for the correct results and -6.00 points for the correct scores mean that overall they’re now showing a loss of -4.45 points.

Leagues One & Two

Just 2 correct results for Jake Sanders’ League One predictions, but he was correct with the score in both matches. A loss of -5.36 points for the correct results, but a profit of +5.00 points for the correct scores, gave a combined loss of just -0.36 points, which means he’s still slightly in profit +0.42 points.

Not such a good week for Gabriel Sutton. He also only managed 2 correct results from the 10 matches played, but in both matches he was a goal out from getting the score correct. A loss of -4.55 points for the correct results and -10 points for the scores mean he lost more than half his profits and is now showing an overall profit of +13.90 points.

Scottish Premiership

Due to cup games there were no Scottish Premiership matches played at the weekend. There were however 2 games played during the week. Graham Ruthven was correct with both results and was spot on with Motherwell’s 2-0 win over St Johnstone.

A profit of +1.63 points for the results and +7.5 points for the scores mean he’s now Overall in profit to the tune of +11.16 points.

La Liga

4 correct results and no correct scores from the 10 matches played, means loses of -4.02 points and -10.00 points respectively. They’re now showing an overall loss of -14.40 points since I started monitoring the selections.

Bundesliga

Correct scores in 5 of the 9 matches for a small loss of -0.89 points. No correct scores increases the overall loss to -66.66 points.

Serie A

A bumper weekend for Jacopo Piotto’s Italian predictions. He was correct with 9 out of the 10 matches and got the correct score in 4 of the games. A profit of +8.72 points for the correct results and +19.5 points for the correct scores, combined for a profit of +28.22 points. Overall he’s now back in profit +18.97 points.

 

4 Homes Acca – 13/02/18

The Newport v Forest Green match fell foul of bad weather, leaving just 3 bets in the weekend acca. Of the 2 remaining games played on Saturday, Bristol City were 3-0 up at half time, while Blackburn found themselves 2-0 down. It was therefore rather surprising that both matches ended in a draw. Sunderland squared things with 3 goals of their own in the second half and Blackburn scored 2 to level things at Ewood Park.

Sunday’s match was therefore a dead rubber, but Villa did run out 2-0 winners.

The running total for the season now stands at +£27.13.

A full program of mid-week League One and Two fixtures, plus a couple of games being played in the Championship, so a bonus acca this week.

Selections for 13th February 2018

BetVictor are now paying £88.10 on the acca, but at the time I placed the bet £10 returned £82.71, so I’ll use that price to settle the bet if it’s a winner.

Over 2.5 Goals – System 4 : 13/2/18

One winner from the two bets over the weekend and a small loss of -0.1 points for the Low Key Soccer Betting System 4 selections

On Friday evening Juventus scored a 2nd goal in the 86th minute to provide an outside chance of scoring over 2.5 goals, but it wasn’t to be. On Saturday Wolves only managed 2 shots on target, but scored 2 goals. Despite having more shots on target QPR could only manage the 1 goal, but it was enough to ensure a winning over 2.5 goals bet.

That now makes it 9 winning bets from 18 and the overall balance currently stands at -1.32 points.

There’s one qualifying bet from the mid-week matches, where Cardiff take in Bolton.

4 Homes Acca – 10/02/18

Came close to landing the acca bet last Saturday, with 3 of the 4 home teams winning.  despite twice coming from a goal down Portsmouth let the bet down.

Notts County conceded an early goal to Crewe, but came back well to win 4-1. Derby had few problems in beating 10 man Brentford 3-0. While Rotherham finished 2-0 to the good against AFC Wimbledon. In all 3 of those matches the home team added an extra goal in the last few minutes of the game, alas in the one that mattered Portsmouth were unable to get the elusive winner, drawing 2-2 with Doncaster.

The running total for the season now stands at +£37.13.

Selections for 10th / 11th February 2018

English Championship – Bristol City to beat Sunderland
English Championship – Aston Villa to beat Birmingham (playing Sunday)
English League One – Blackburn to beat Oldham
English League Two – Newport to beat Forest Green

Over 2.5 Goals – System 4 : 9/2/18

The improved results continued last weekend for the trial of the Low Key Soccer Betting System 4 selections. Of the 4 qualifying matches played, 3 produced 3 or more goals, with only Burnley v Man City not coming up with the necessary number of goals.

Of the 3 successful games, 2 went down to the wire, with Werder Bremen scoring in the 93rd minute and Genoa in the 92nd. Despite Watford putting 4 past Chelsea, it was still the 84th minute before the bet was landed.

That’s now 8 winning bets from 16 and the overall balance is now standing at -1.22 points.

Just 2 qualifying bets this weekend, with one Friday night and the other on Saturday.

WhoScored – Update 28

Premier League

When Liverpool went 2-1 up in stoppage time on Sunday, Ben Mcaleer could have been forgiven for thinking he’d called the score correctly, for only the 3rd time since I started monitoring the WhoScored selections. However the referee had other ideas and a Harry Kane penalty put paid to the scoreline.

Just 3 correct results gave a loss of -5.38 points, combined with -10.0 points for no correct scores, brings the balance to -0.16 points.

The Championship

5 correct results and just 1 correct score for Preston’s 2-1 win over Hull. Losses of -2.31 points and -3 points respectively, contributed to a combined loss of -5.31 points, which brings the overall profit down to just +2.29 points.

Leagues One & Two

The new boys on the block, had an impressive weekend. Jake Sanders was correct with his predictions in 5 of the 12 League one matches and was spot on with the score in 3 of those games. A combined profit of +11.48 points mean that he’s now only showing a small loss of -0.42 points overall.

Gabriel Sutton  also correctly predicted 3 scorelines, including Notts County’s 4-1 win over Crewe at 22/1. He got the result right in 7 of the 12 League Two games for a profit of +4.83 points, to combine with the +28 points for the correct scores. Overall he’s now showing a profit of +30.45 points, since he started his prediction for WhoScored.

Scottish Premiership

Graham Ruthven was also on target with his Scottish Premiership guesses. He only got the result correct in 2 of the 6 matches, but came up with the correct score in both games. A combined profit of +5.05 points, means he’s now in profit to the tune of +2.03 since he started with his predictions.

La Liga

Just 3 correct results and no correct scores with the La Liga predictions, giving rise to a combined loss of -14.72 points, wiping out the previous profits. The overall balance now stands at a -0.38 points loss.

Bundesliga

Correct scores in 3 of the 9 matches for a small loss of -0.85 points. Just the 1 correct score for a loss of -3.0 points, gives an overall loss of -56.77 points.

Serie A

6 correct results out of the 10 games played, but just the 1 correct score, produced a combined loss of -3.32 points, bringing the overall loss to -9.25 points.

Ligue 1

For the 2nd week in a row Eric Devin only managed 1 correct result from is French Ligue 1 predictions. His tactic of mainly betting against the favourite doesn’t seem to be working.

Since I started monitoring his predictions, at the start of December, he’s correctly predicted the result in 31 out of 81 matches and has got the score correct in just 2 games. His points total now stands at -32.61 points for correct results and -72.50 points for correct scores, giving and overall loss of -105.11.

Given the loss now exceeds 100 points I’ll no longer be monitoring the Ligue 1 selections.

4 Homes Acca – 03/02/18

The less said about last weekend’s acca the better. It would have been more likely to come in as 4 aways than 4 homes.

Blackburn managed a 1-1 draw with Northampton, but the other 3 teams all lost; Portsmouth went down 1-0 to Shrewsbury, Chesterfield lost to Stevenage by a similar score, while Doncaster were on the wrong end of a 3-1 beating by Bristol Rovers.

Well at least that gets 4 losing bets out of the way in one go, so hopefully that’ll mean we’re due 4 winners this weekend.

The running total for the season now stands at +£47.13.

Selections for 3rd February 2018

English Championship – Derby to beat Brentford
