A disappointing weekend for the WhoScored predictions.
It was a weekend where the 2 Manchester clubs scored most of the goals, with 10 of the 21 Premier League goals being shared between the 2 teams. It’s therefore little surprise that they sit equal top of the table, separated only by alphabetical order.
Half of the weekend’s games ended in draws, with 3 not managing any goals. WhoScored predicted there would be 3 draws, but the ones they picked, were not the ones who drew.
They only predicted the correct result in 2 of the games and those were the 2 that United and City won. That gave a loss of 7.31 points on their result predictions and -10 points for their correct scores.
With -12.34 points carried forward from last week that gives a combined overall loss of 29.65 points on their Premier League predictions, since I started to monitor them last week.
Early season can be difficult to get right, especially with the transfer window only recently closing, so I’ll be looking for their results to improve once the season gets more established.
Results were a little better in The Championship, with 4 correct results and 1 correct score for the Ipswich v Bolton game.
Leaders Leeds lost at Millwall, but that could have been predicted as they have a wretched record at The Den in recent years.
Over all the matches they made a loss of 3.42 points on their results predictions and -2.5 points on their correct scores.
With -1.47 points carried forward from last week that gives a combined overall loss of 7.39 points on their Championship predictions, since I started to monitor them last week.
No Mid-week fixtures in either the Premier League or the Championship, so I’ll next report back this time next week on how they get on with their predictions at the weekend.
