Mid-April can become a bumpy road for the football trader and researcher.
I call it the ‘West Brom’ factor, after West Brom’s coupon-busting 0-1 win away at Manchester United.
Teams in need of points can do the most unexpected and just the right time – when they need the points!
Crotone held the mighty Juventus to a 1-1 draw recently. Another coupon-buster!
Udinese need points. They led Napoli 1-2! Thankfully, Napoli need points too and came out 4-2 winners.
I hope you get the idea though. It’s time to resort to confirmation from the in-play stats, no matter how strong an opinion you may get from the pre-match research.
Time to tread warily…
You’ll see in the research I mention ‘relegation six pointer’ in certain matches. That is deliberate and is to inform you of the ‘West Brom’ factor.
I will be doing a live chat this weekend on Saturday and Sunday. I did a rare mid-week live chat webinar because of the Italian Seria A, and it was a very interesting night. I enjoyed it and I hope you did too.
I hope you can attend this weekend’s live chat webinars. You’ll learn a lot. You’ll see how to make trading decisions, how to work the Shorties List (see the DRT Facebook Page), when to get out, when to get in – and much more.
See you over the weekend!
