The festive period continued well for the WhoScored Premier League predictions. The last of their post Christmas guesses saw them correctly predict Arsenal would win 3-2 away at Palace for a return of 22 points on the correct score and increasing their combined profit to +28.27 points for that round of matches.
Results weren’t so good in the last round of matches of the year. They didn’t manage any correct scores from the 9 matches played and only got the correct result in 3 of the games, giving them a combined loss of -12.46 points and reducing their overall profit to +27.85 points.
They managed to claw some of those losses back in the first round of games in the New Year, with 5 correct results and 2 correct scores from the 11 matches played, giving a combined profit of +6.05 points and increasing the overall profit to +33.90 points since I started monitoring selections.
Things haven’t gone so well for Harry Smith and his Championship predictions. In the last round of matches of the year he only got 4 results correct from the 12 matches played and just the 1 correct score. The results he got right included 2 draws and an away win, which kept the combined loss down to -4.25 points and reduced the overall profit to +31.1 points.
New Years Day was a bit of a disaster with no correct results from the 9 matches played. Harry did better with the 3 games on the 2nd, getting all 3 results correct, but no correct scores. A combined loss of -16.69 points across the 2 days saw the overall profit cut by more than half, down to -16.69 points.
That’s now -56.89 points wiped off the profits since 19th November. Hopefully Harry can get back to winning form after the FA Cup break.
Their Italian writer Jacopo Piotto finished the year with an additional +9.18 points profit to bring the overall profit for the month to +12.55 points.
He was correct with the result in half of the 10 matches and came up with the correct score in 2 of the games to finish the year on a high.
