The playoffs didn’t provide any respite for Harry Smith’s WhoScored predictions. Just the 1 correct result from the 4 matches played and a combined loss of -6.36 points, bringing the overall loss down to -53.81 points.
Leagues One & Two
Jake Sanders made a bit of a Horlicks of his prediction for the Charlton v Shrewsbury match. Before the first leg of the playoffs he predicted a 1 – 1 draw between the two teams, but he put the prediction up as the 2nd leg match rather than the 1st leg. WhoScored took the prediction down from their site and subsequently no predictions was put up for either of the two legs.
Jake did better with the other playoff game, getting the score spot on in the 2nd leg of the game between Rotherham v Scunthorpe. A combined profit of +8.25 points, reduced the overall loss to -22.82 points.
Gabriel Sutton managed the correct result in the two 2nd leg matches, but no correct scores meant an combined loss of -2.86 points, bringing the overall loss to -49.24 points, with just the playoff final to go.
It was a valiant effort from Simon Harrison in the final set of La Liga matches. 6 correct results and 4 correct scores from the 10 matches brought in a combined profit of +29.22 points, which almost halved the overall loss to -34.11 points. A nice way to round off the season for anyone following his predictions.
Jacopo Piotto just about wiped his face with his predictions for the final week of the season, thanks to getting the Napoli v Crotone score spot on. That result saved him from going over a -100 point loss and he finished the season on -91.16 points from when I started monitoring his predictions.
I’ll be doing a full write-up on the WhoScored tipsters, after the English playoff matches have concluded.
