It’s been a quiet week, but sometimes weeks like that can be good learning tools. If you have fewer matches to focus on, from quality leagues, the trading becomes more readable…
There were five Premier League matches being played on New Year’s Day. Three of those matches were 0-0 at halftime, and we saw goals second half. The research pointed to goals. Simple, profitable angles.
Four matches on 2nd January came from the Premier League again. The highlight was the West Ham vs West Brom match, where I made a strong argument for West Ham scoring 2+ goals versus lesser teams under David Moyes.
West Brom scored first, West Ham won 2-1!
On Wednesday Arsenal vs Chelsea was a great match to trade in, if you followed my research. I argued for 1-1 and 1-2 in Chelsea’s favour, given Arsenal’s inability to beat top-four teams. The match ended 2-2, Arsenal scored first, Chelsea equalised and then led 1-2.
Yesterday, West Ham scored first against Tottenham. Tottenham soon equalised.
A small manageable set of matches each day; strong angles, good trades and good profits.
For those of you wanting the simplest of angles, five of the matches this week from the Premier League showed a 0-0 scoreline at halftime and goals in the second half.
It is FA Cup weekend now, and cup competitions do not sit well with me. I researched Liverpool’s match tonight. Their FA Cup form suggests that the competition is a distraction rather than something they are coveting. How many other teams will see this as a distraction to their more important goals?
I will be back home next week for the return of league football. Our cossetted friends, the Germans, come out of hibernation on the 13th. I will be live chatting on that date.
I hope to live chat tomorrow too, for the 14:00 Seria A kick-offs in Italy. It is my last weekend with the ankle-biters, so no promises!
Oh, and don’t forget that the Australian Open is upon us soon. I’ll be showing you how to back a 1.2 shot at 12/1 and still win!! (See Dimitrov vs Millman in the Brisbane warm-up tournament earlier this week!)
Enjoy the FA Cup!
