WhoScored – Update 12

It was a case of one step forward two steps back for the WhoScored predictions over the weekend. A combined profit was made on their Championship predictions, but that was wiped out by a slightly bigger loss on their Premier League guesses.

Premier League

No correct scores from the 10 matches played, but they did manage 7 correct results, which gave a profit of 2.80 points. Combined with the -10 points for the correct scores gave a loss of -7.2 points, bringing their overall profit, since I started monitoring the results, down to 9.21 points.

The Championship

They kept up their good run of results on their correct score predictions in the Championship, being spot on with the one all draws between Norwich v Barnsley and Fulham v Derby. They were also correct in predicting Sunderland v Millwall would be a draw, but didn’t get the number of goals right in that one.

Overall they got the correct result in 5 of the 12 giving a profit of 3.35 points, giving them a combined profit of 5.35, including the correct scores, bringing their overall profit to 71.30 points.

There’s a full program of mid-week Championship matches and the Champions League is back, so I’ll report again on Thursday how they get on in those matches.

WhoScored – Update 11

Premier League

WhoScored were in fine form with their correct score predictions again this weekend and this time it wasn’t just the Championship matches where they came good. They correctly guessed that Huddersfield would beat WBA 1-0 and that Liverpool would win 4-1 at the London Stadium, which paid out a whopping 22/1.

As far as there result predictions went, they were right in half of the 10 games and managed to wipe their face, but the profits were had in the correct scores, where they made 19.5 points over the weekend’s games. Overall they’re now showing a profit of +24.5 points for their Premier League correct scores and a loss of -8.09 on their result prediction, giving a combined profit of +16.41 points, since I started monitoring their selections.

The Championship

In the Championship they went 1 better, with 3 correct scores. Friday night saw them get Wolves 2-0 win over Fulham spot on and they followed that up on Saturday with Barnsley’s 2-0 win over Birmingham and Leeds 3-1 defeat at Brentford.

The 3 results ensured a profit of 22.5 points for their correct score bets over the weekend. Not as good were their correct result guesses, with only 5 of the 12 matches going the way they predicted and a loss of -2.47 points.

A combined profit of 20.03 points, brings their overall profit on Championship games to 65.95 points, since I started monitoring. 64 points of that has come from their correct score predictions.

WhoScored – Update 10

The Championship

It’s been a fantastic week for any betting on the correct score predictions in the Championship from WhoScored. Following on from the 12 points profit they made at the weekend. They correctly predicted the score in 3 of the 12 mid-week matches, giving 33 points profit.

On top of that they got the result right in 7 of the 12 games, 6 of which were away wins, giving them an additional 7.82 points.

The combined mid-week profit of 40.82 points, sees their overall profit on Championship matches increase to 45.92 points, since I started monitoring their performance.

Champions League

Not such good fortune in the Champions League matches, where they continue to struggle with their predictions. They only got the correct result in half of the 16 group matches, which gave a loss of -2.15 points. Of those they only got the correct score in 2 games, which gave an additional -3 point loss.

Overall this brings their combined loss to -37.57 points in all the group matches so far.

WhoScored – Update 9

Premier League

WhoScored correctly predicted the result of 6 of the 9 Premier League games, played over the weekend, to give a profit of 1.68 points, but only managed to get the correct score in 1 of the games, which resulted in a loss of 2.5 points and a combined loss of 0.82 points.

A draw in tonight’s game will see them edge into an overall profit for all the Premier League matches, since I started to monitor their predictions. 

The Championship

Despite only getting the result correct in 3 of the weekend’s Championship matches they managed a combined profit of 8.9 points, thanks to guessing the correct score in 2 of those 3 games.

They made a loss of 3.10 points for the result predictions, but a profit of 12 points for the correct scores means they are now showing an overall  profit of 5.10 points  for all Championship predictions since I started monitoring.

Their Correct score predictions are now showing a profit for both Premier League (+6.00 points) and Championship (+8.5 points) matches. Backing all their correct score predictions, would have resulted in a combined profit of 14.5 points. Where as backing just their results predictions would have made a combined loss of 10.48 points.

There’s a full program of Championship matches this mid-week, plus round 4 of the Champions League group games, so I’ll be back on Thursday with a round-up of their predictions in all those matches.

WhoScored – Update 8

Premier League

It was a good weekend for the WhoScored Premier League predictions and it was very nearly a fantastic weekend. They correctly predicted the score in 3 of the 10 games and had Chelsea down for a 3-2 over Watford at 25/1. Unfortunately Chelsea scored a 4th goal in the 5th minute of added time, to put paid to that result.

Still they made a combined profit of 9.36 points, which can’t be sneezed at, which leaves them at just -0.26 points overall, since I started monitoring their predictions.

The Championship

Not so good with their predictions in The Championship, which cancelled the profit they made from the Premier League. 5 correct results, gave a profit of 1.88 points, but no correct scores meant a loss of 12 points and a combined loss of 10.12 points. This took them back into the red for their overall Championship predictions, which now stands at -3.80 points since I started to monitor them.

WhoScored – Update 6

Premier League

It was a good weekend for the WhoScored with their Premier League predictions, thanks mainly to them correctly guessing Watford would beat Arsenal 2-1, which in itself gave a profit of 4.5 points for the result and 16 points for the correct score.

They correctly predicted the result of 3 of the remaining 8 matches and with 1 game still to be played tonight between Leicester and WBA, their overall profit for the weekend stands at 2.26 points for their result predictions and 8 points for the correct scores.

A combined profit of 10.26 points profit, reduced their overall loss to 7.62 points.

The Championship

Not quite so good for their Championship predictions, they guessed the correct result in half of the 12 games, which gave a profit of 3.08 points, but only got the score correct in 1 of those matches, so it was a loss of 5 points for the correct scores, giving a combined loss of 1.92 points for the weekend.

Overall though they’re still in profit for their Championship predictions, with a profit of 6.32 points since I started monitoring their results.

This week sees the return of the Champions League, so I’ll be back on Thursday with a round-up of their predictions on those matches.

WhoSored – Update 5

It was a weekend of contrasting fortunes for the WhoScored predictions.

Premier League

Manchested United and Tottenham were the big scorers in the Premier League this weekend, bagging 4 goals a piece. Elsewhere goals were a little hard to come by, with 6 of the games scoring under 2.5 goals.

WhoScored were unable to repeat their fine form of last weekend with their predictions. They got the result right in 4 of the 10 matches, but didn’t get the correct score in any of the games, which gave them a loss of 2.68 points for the results predictions and -10 points for the correct scores.

This gave a combined loss on the weekend of 12.68 points and increased their overall loss on Premier League matches to 17.88 points since I started to monitor the results.

The Championship

WhoScored fared much better in their Championship predictions. They only got 5 out of the 7 results correct, but of those 5, they predicted the correct score in 3. This gave them a loss of 0.64 points for the result predictions, but a whopping 29 points profit for the correct scores thanks to correctly predicting QPR 1 v 2 Fulham, Ipswich 1 v 3 Bristol City and Middlesbro 2 v 2 Brentford (excellent calls on the last two).

The combined profit of 28.36 points, sees them into the black, now with an overall profit of 8.24, on their Championship predictions, since monitoring began.

With the International break next weekend, I’ll be back in a couple of weeks, with the next update.

WhoScored – Update 4

WhoScored were unable to carry their good performance from the weekend through to the mid-week matches.

Premier League

The Monday Night Football game between Arsenal and WBA went the way WhoSored predicted, with a 2-0 win to Arsenal boosting their combined weekend Premier League profit to 24.45 points and reducing their overall loss to 5.2 points, since I started monitoring their predictions.

The Championship

Just 4 correct results and no correct scores saw mid-week losses of -3.8 and -12 points respectively, for their Championship predictions. This brings their overall loss to -4.62 points for bets on their result predictions and -15.5 points betting on their correct score predictions.

Champions League

This week saw the return of the Champions League group matches. WhoScored correctly predicted the result in 10 of the 16 matches, but due to the low odds for many of the games, it resulted in a loss of -1.17 points across the two days.

They were unable to predict the correct score in any of the games, which meant a loss of -16 points on those predictions. Overall that brings their combined loss of -31.4 points after the two rounds of Champions League games.

They’ve started posting their predictions for the weekend Premier League and Championship matches, so I’ll be back early next week to report how they get on.

WhoScored – Update 3

It’s been a much better weekend for anyone betting on the WhoScored predictions.

Premier League

Manchester City and Chelsea were the big scorers this weekend. Chelsea scored four at Stoke, but City went one better, putting 5 past the hapless Crystal Palace.

WhoScored predicted City would win the game 4-0, but even at that score, they underestimated City’s firepower. They correctly predicted the correct result in 7 of the 9 Premier League matches played so far. With just tonight’s match between Arsenal and West Brom to come, their profit for the weekend stands at 3.65 points.

They did even better when it came to the correct scores, thanks to their correct prediction that Liverpool would win 3-2 at Leicester, which returned 22 points, giving them a profit of 14 points and a combined profit of 17.65 points, reducing their overall loss to 12 points, since I started monitoring their predictions.

The Championship

It was also a good week for their predictions in The Championship matches. Not so many correct results, with just 5 of the games going the way they predicted, but a profit of 0.57 points nevertheless.

They were spot on with two of the games, getting the scoreline correct in the matches between Reading v Hull and Aston Villa v Nottingham Forest. They achieved a profit of 2.5 points for their correct scores predictions and a combined profit of 3.07 points.

Their overall loss is now down to 4.32 points and with a full program of Championship mid-week fixtures it’ll be interesting to see if they can get back into the black.

Next update will be on Friday, after The Championship and Champions League results.

WhoScored – Update 2

A disappointing weekend for the WhoScored predictions.

Premier League

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.

The Championship

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.
