The Sportsman Knows… Your Weekend Guide

Happy New year to all from The Sportsman, let’s hope it’s a profitable one. To kick-start some profit for 2011 I am looking at corners handicaps this week and siding with the underdog in what is a tighter than average English Premier League season.

Who the hell is The Sportsman?
The answer in full is HERE but in a nutshell, he’s a man who knows what he’s talking about and unlike so many others, he publishes his track record HERE and unlike so many others, he has had his accounts either withdrawn or heavily restricted by several major bookmakers HERE.

For the stats below I have termed the two Manchester clubs, Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool as the “elite” sides. This is debatable with Spurs knocking loudly on the door and therefore I have omitted them from the stats as although they haven’t quite taken their place at the elite table yet nor can they be described as a lesser light in the League.

For background purposes, normally when you oppose the elite sides at home on corners handicaps market the underdog’s will receive a 2, 3 or 4 corner start with the likes of Manchester United giving up four corners to their opponents and Manchester City giving up two.

The price will be around evens or the 11-10 mark for the underdogs with a handicap tie around 6-1. For simplification lets work to evens your dough. Below are the figures for what I have termed the non-elite sides away to the elite sides this season.

Backing non-elite sides away to Chelsea +3 corners @ evens: loss of £300 to £100 stakes
Backing the tie at Chelsea when non-elite away side receives 3 corners @ 6-1: profit of £2600 to £100 stakes

Chelsea’s 2010-11 home League corners record to non-elite sides (3-2 v WBA, 5-2 Stoke, Blackpool 9-6, Wolves 8-8, Fulham 4-4, Sunderland 6-3, Everton 7-2, Bolton 6-3, Aston Villa 9-6)

Backing non-elite sides away to Liverpool +3 corners @ evens: loss of £100 to £100 stakes
Backing the tie at Liverpool when non-elite away side receives 3 corners @ 6-1: profit of £700 to £100 stakes

Liverpool’s 2010-11 home League corners record to non-elite sides (7-6 WBA, Sunderland 3-3, Blackpool 5-2, Blackburn 15-4, West Ham 10-2, Wolves 2-8, Bolton 7-4)

Backing non-elite sides away to Manchester City +2 corners @ evens: £200 loss to £100 stakes
Backing the tie at Manchester City when non-elite away side receives 2 corners @ 6-1: profit of £800 to £100 stakes

Manchester City’s 2010-11 home League corners record to non-elite sides (Blackburn 14-1, Newcastle 4-4, Birmingham 6-4, Bolton 8-8, Aston Villa 8-6, Blackpool 10-4)

Backing non-elite sides away to Manchester United +4 corners @ evens: level to £100 stakes.
Backing the tie at Manchester United when non-elite away side receives 4 corners @ 6-1:- loss of £800 to £100 stakes

Manchester United’s 2010-11 home League corners record to non-elite sides (Newcastle 5-3, West Ham 9-3, WBA 3-2, Wolves 3-2, Wigan 11-1, Blackburn 7-1, Sunderland 5-3, Stoke 6-1)

Backing non-elite sides away to Arsenal +3 corners @ evens: £500 loss to £100 stakes
Backing the tie at Arsenal when non-elite away side receives 3 corners @ 6-1:- £700 profit to £100 stakes

Arsenal’s 2010-11 home League corners record to non-elite sides (Blackpool 8-2, Bolton 9-6, WBA 16-4, Birmingham 7-3, West Ham 7-4, Newcastle 12-2, Fulham 3-7)

Covering both the away side to win against elite teams and also to tie in the handicap in matches this season would have won you £2900 to £100 level stakes. An angle to consider.
