Week 18 – Backing Josh Wright’s Premier League Predictions

I was a mixed end to the year for Josh Wright’s Premier League previews on the WhoScored web site. On Boxing day he did the previews for all 10 games, of which he only predicted the correct result in 3 and wasn’t correct with the score in any, recording a combined loss of -£81.25 to £5 stakes at bet365 prices.

Results were much better at the weekend, where he previewed 8 of the matches, with Martin Laurence previewing the other 2 games. Of the 8 Josh was correct with 5 of the results and managed the correct score in 2, correctly predicting that Fulham would beat Huddersfield 1-0 and Watford would draw 1-1 with Newcastle. A combined profit of+£40.45 clawed back some of the Boxing day losses, but overall he’s still showing a loss of -£183.80 on all predictions since the start of the season.

I’ve decided to no longer track Josh’s predictions. Based upon his performance last season I still think his previews are worth keeping an eye on, but I feel time would be better spent focusing on paid services, where you can’t track the results without having to subscribe to the service.
