WhoScored Update 39

With the end of the football season just a few matches away results over the last week weren’t what was required for the WhoScored  writers to finish with a profit from their result and correct score predictions.

Premier League

Just 2 correct results and no correct scores from the 10 matches played over an extended weekend of fixtures. A combined loss of -17.31 points almost halved the previous overall profit, which now stands at +19.26 points.

The Championship

Harry Smith was the only one of their tipsters that I’m monitoring to show a profit on the week. He managed 7 correct results and 1 correct score, to return a combined profit of +1.99 points, reducing his overall loss to -23.65 points. That keeps alive his chance of finishing with a profit.

Leagues One & Two

Things seem to be slipping away from Jake Saunders with a combined loss of -8.53 points from last week’s mid-week games followed by a loss of -4.20 points at the weekend.

Overall he’s now down -21.11 points and will need a swift turnaround in fortunes if he’s going to break back into profit before the end of the season.

Gabriel Sutton picked up +4.57 points profit from last week’s mid-week games, but gave it back plus more at the weekend, with a loss of -9.31 points. Overall he’s now showing a loss of -47.18 and any realistic chance of getting back into profit before the end of the season, looks to have gone.

Scottish Premiership

Just the 2 results correct for Graham Ruthven and form seems to be deserting him at the crunch end of the season. A loss of -7.26 points means Graham is now showing an overall loss of -4.42 points. Things don’t bode well as he’s gradually seen his profits erode away of the past 6 weeks.

La Liga

Any chance of Simon Harrison ending with a profit with his La Liga predictions now looks to have gone. No correct scores contributed to a loss of -11.74 points last mid-week, followed by a further loss of -5.60 points at the weekend, mean he’s now showing an overall loss of -62.78 points.

Serie A

It looks to be a similar situation for Jacopo Piotto with his Italian Serie A predictions. He managed 1 correct score over the week, but his correct result predictions were all short prices, so despite 9 correct results from the 20 matches played there was still combined losses of -10.77 points las mid-week and -7.23 points at the weekend.

Overall now showing a loss of -56.70 points and again his chance to end the season in profit appears to have now gone.

WhoScored Update 37

Premier League

It was another good week for  WhoScored with their Premier League predictions. 2 correct scores and 4 correct results combined to provide a profit of +17.28, bringing the overall profit to +34.91 points.

The profit breakdown between Josh Wright and Ben McAleer now stands at:

+141.73 points for Josh Wright from 191 matches
-104.51 points for Ben McAleer from 100 matches

The Championship

 

Harry Smith was correct with the result in half his predictions, but only managed the correct score for the Leeds v Sunderland game. Resulted in him breaking even for the results but a loss of -6.0 points for the scores.

Overall the loss now stands at -23.72 points since I started monitoring the selections.

Leagues One & Two

It was a fine week for Jake Saunders with his League One predictions. He was correct with the result on 6 of the 11 matches at the weekend and got the score spot on with 3 of the games.

A combined profit of +16.08 points brings the overall performance back into profit, with +3.35 points.

In League Two Gabriel Sutton did well with his result predictions, with 5 correct from the 11 games, providing a profit of +2.44 points. However he didn’t manage to find the correct score in any of the games, so there was a combined loss of -8.56 points.

Overall he’s now showing a loss of -33.38 points, so will require some good results over the last few weeks in order to finish the season with a profit.

Scottish Premiership

3 correct results, but no correct scores, gave a combined loss of -7.41 points. Overall just hanging on to a slight profit +2.99 points.

La Liga

5 correct results form the 9 matches played so far, with 1 match being played this evening. However no correct scores, so a combined loss of -8.56 points.

Over now showing a loss of -44.73, so it’s going to be hard to turn things around before the end of the season.

Serie A

Pretty much break even for last week’s mid-week matches, but no correct scores at the weekend resulted in a loss of -10.19 points.

Overall now showing a loss of -29.0 points, so with 7 matches remaining, Jacopo Piotto will need a few good weeks of results in order to get back into a profit before the end of the season.

WhoScored Update 36

Premier League

Josh Wright again provided all the predictions for the matches played in the Premier League this weekend and once again the results for WhoScored showed.

7 correct results and 4 correct scores gave a combined profit of +27.60 points and seeing the overall figure back in the black, with a profit of +17.63 points.

The profit breakdown between Josh and Ben McAleer now stands at:

+121.33 points for Josh Wright from 184 matches
-101.39 points for Ben McAleer from 97 matches

The Championship

There was no profit to be had from following the Championship predictions over the Easter period. The Good Friday / Saturday matches made a combined loss of -6.95 points, with 4 correct results and 1 correct score. Followed by a similar pattern on the Easter Monday / Tuesday games with a combined loss of -5.19 points.

The overall loss now stands at -17.84 points and Harry Smith will need to up his game in the remaining matches in order to finish the season in profit.

Leagues One & Two

Not a lot to be said for the League One predictions. There was profits to be made betting on the correct results, but that was pretty much all offset by losses made on the correct scores.

Overall a small profit was made on each of the round of matches, reducing the overall loss to -12.73 points.

Results over the Easter period didn’t go as planned for Gabriel Sutton in League Two. He was unable to recapture the form he’d shown the previous week.

A combined loss of -4.53 points from Good Friday’s games and -11.89 points from those played Easter Monday, saw the overall loss increase to -24.82 points.

Scottish Premiership

There was also little cheer North of the border for Graham Ruthven. 7 points were wiped from his profits over the week, reducing the overall profit to +12.4 points.

La Liga

Only 1 set of matches played in Spain over the Easter period and just 4 correct results and 1 correct score for Simon Harrision. A combined loss of -6.01 points brings the overall figure to -36.17 points.

Bundesliga

5 correct results from the 9 matches played, provided a small profit, but no correct scores meant a combined loss of -8.20 points.

Overall that takes the losses down below -100 points. Therefore, as with the French Ligue 1 predictions I’ll cease reporting the Bundesliga selections on a weekly basis, however I will continue to monitor them and will do a roundup of the performance at the end of the season.

Serie A

Better results were to be had in Serie A, with 6 correct results from the 10 matches and 2 correct scores, giving a combined profit of +3.4 points, which reduced the overall loss to -18.39 points.

There were 3 Serie A games played last night and 4 more playing tonight, but I’ll report on them in next weeks roundup.

WhoScored – Update 35

League One

It was a case of 1 step backwards 1 step forwards for the WhoScored League One predictions. They made a loss of -4.3 points during mid-week last week, but then recouped the dropped points with a profit of +4.5 points at the weekend. So not much change the overall total now stands at -15.31 points.

League Two

During the week last week Gabriel Sutton was spot on with 2 of the 4 matches played. On the Wednesday he correctly predicted Crewe would beat Forest Green 3-1, at odds of 18/1. He then followed up on Wednesday, with Wycombe to beat Crawley 3-1 at 28/1. Banking a combined profit of +44.39 points profit.

At the weekend he was only correct with 5 of the results and just 1 correct score, for a combined loss of -1.95 points, which brings his overall loss to -8.4 points.

 

WhoScored Update 34

Premier League

Josh Wright provided the predictions for all the matches played this weekend and the results for WhoScored were much better as a result.

3 correct results from the 4 matches and the correct score in the Huddersfield v Crystal Palace game, gave a combined profit of +10.61 points and halved the overall loss to -9.97 points.

The Championship

Similar to last week with a  good mid-week with 5 out of 6 correct results, plus one correct score, giving a combined profit of +5.96 points, but then a poor weekend, with just 4 correct results from 12 games and no correct scores giving a loss of -14.26 points. Overall they’re now back into a slight loss of -5.70 points.

Leagues One & Two

It was a reverse situation in League One, with a combined loss of -5.45 points in mid-week, followed by a profit of +12.3 at the weekend. The overall total now stands at -15.51 points.

There was no joy either in the mid-week or at the weekend in League Two. A loss of -2.6 points was followed by another loss of -7.4 points, taking the total loss to -50.84 points.

Those early days in February when Gabriel Sutton first started his predictions and was showing a profit of +30.45 points, now seem a long time ago.

Scottish Premiership

Just the 1 correct result for Graham Ruthven’s Scottish Premier predictions, but he was spot on with the scoreline, so combined losses were limited to just -4 points. He’s still currently showing a healthy profit of +19.7 points, but may welcome the International break to get back on track.

La Liga

Only 4 correct results, but the correct score in 2 of the games, ensured a slight combined profit of +0.56 points on the week. Overall though still showing a loss of -30.16 points.

Bundesliga

There doesn’t seem to be any saving of Daniel Busch, as he tumbles towards the dreaded -100 point loss. Just 3 correct results and no correct scores took another -12.56 points out of the coffers and he now sits on a loss of -92.65 points.

Serie A

Not much cheer over in Italy with only 4 correct results from 11 matches played and no correct scores. A combined loss of -15.85 points takes the overall loss to -21.79 points.

Champions League

Predictions have been much improved in the knockout stages of the competition. For this round of matches they were correct with 4 of the results and 2 of the correct scores, providing a profit of +18.61 points, which nearly halved the deficit to -21.10 points.

WhoScored Update 33

Premier League

A weekend where Ben McAleer predicted the majority of the matches for WhoScored. He was correct with the result in 6 of his 8 matches, but failed to find the correct score in any of the games. Josh Wright was correct with 1 of the 2 games he did the predictions for, but he didn’t come up with a correct score either.

Overall they are now showing a combined loss of -20.58 points, but if do the breakdown between the 2 guys doing the predictions, it now stands at:

+83.12 points for Josh Wright from 170 matches
-101.39 points for Ben McAleer from 97 matches

3 other matches were predicted by Martin Lauence, but he doesn’t seem to get involved at all now.

The Championship

A good mid-week in the Championship with 9 out of 12 correct results and the correct score in 3 of the matches, giving a combined profit of +29.07 points.

Not so good at the weekend with 6 correct results, but no correct scores, giving a loss of -9.87 points, bringing the overall profit to +2.60 points since I started monitoring the selections

Leagues One & Two

Not the best of weeks for the League One guesses with just 2 correct results and 1 correct score, bringing the overall total to -22.36 points.

A similar situation in League Two with just 3 correct scores from 16 matches played during the past week. -18 points for the week sees the overall loss increase to -40.84 points.

Scottish Premiership

A week of 2 halves for Graham Ruthven’s Scottish Premier predictions. Mid-week last week saw him spot on in the Kilmarnock v St Johnstone match, providing a combined profit of +7.95 points, but most of the profit was given back over the weekend, with just 3 correct results and no correct scores. Overall though Graham’s still showing a healthy +23.70 points profit since he started predictions on the web site.

La Liga

Just 3 correct results and 1 correct score gave a combined loss of -8.24 points over the weekend, increasing the overall loss to -30.72 points.

Bundesliga

6 out of 9 correct results gave a profit of +4.27 points, but -9 points for no correct scores, means that over all showing a loss of -80.09 points.

Serie A

Jacopo Piotto drops back into the red with only 4 correct results and just 1 correct score. Overall now showing a loss of -5.34 points.

Who Scored Update 32

Premier League

A good week for the WhoScored correct result predictions, but not so good for the correct scores. They were correct with 8 out of the 10 results, which gave a profit of +6.18 points, but that was offset by -10 points for no correct scores. The overall points tally now stands at -14.62 points, since I started monitoring the selections.

The Championship

Only half the matches beat the big freeze at the weekend, but that didn’t stop Harry Smith returning a combined profit of +4.62 points from his Championship predictions. 3 correct results from the 6 games and the 1 correct score reduces the overall loss to -16.6 points.

Leagues One & Two

Just 4 matches played in League One, which was probably a good thing as results didn’t go Jake Sanders way. No correct scores or results gave a combined loss of -8.0 points and brings their overall loss to -9.46 points.

Only the 2 games played in League Two and they were correct with the result in 1 of them, but  not the score. A combined loss of -2.05 points brings the overall loss to -22.79 points.

Scottish Premiership

All matches called off for the bad weather

La Liga

No weather issues in Spain and correct results in 6 of the games returned a profit of +1.14 points. Better was to come from the correct scores, with 2 of the predictions being spot on, providing a profit of +4.0 points.

Overall the loss now stands at -22.48 points.

Bundesliga

4 correct results but no correct results gave a combined loss of -10.06 points over the weekend, which increases the overall loss to -75.36 points.

Serie A

With Sunday’s games all getting wiped out by the weather, there was just 3 games played in Italy. Of those 3 they got the result correct in 1 but no correct score. Overall a loss of -3.8 points reduced the overall profit to just 1.45 points.

WhoScored Update 31

Late with the update this week and a bit short of time, so will keep things brief and just stick to the basics, in what by and large has been a disappointing week for the WhoScored predictions.

Premier League

With Arsenal and Man City in League Cup final action their league encounter has been moved to tomorrow night, so just the 9 match predictions.

One correct score and 5 correct results resulted in a combined loss of -1.56 points on the week, which brings the overall lose to -10.8 points, since I started monitoring the selections.

The Championship

A couple of correct scores during the week, last week was followed up with just 1 correct score and 3 correct results for at the weekend and then another correct score in the Hull v Barnsley game last night.

The upshot of all that is a combined loss of 1.91 point, which brings their overall loss down to -21.22 points.

Leagues One & Two

Just 1 correct score and 8 correct results from the 17 matches played over the past week.  A combined loss of -3.84 points  means overall they’re now showing a small loss of -1.46 points for the League One predictions.

Not the best of week’s for the League Two guesses. 6 correct results from the 16 matches played and no correct scores combined for a loss of -16.89 points. So where a month ago Gabriel Sutton was  showing a combined profit of +30.45, he’s now showing a loss of -20.74 points.

Scottish Premiership

A good week for Graham Ruthven up in Scotland. 5 correct results from the 8 matches and the correct score in 2 of the games gave a combined profit of +18.74 points, which overall increases his profit to +22.05 points.

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.

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.
