Liverpool manager Gerard Houllier has predicted that West Ham will do well this season which may lead many to “Buy” Hammers points on the Premiership Points Index. As in the above example, you don’t need a team to win the Premiership in order to make money. Here, each team is given a quote for how many total league points it will have come the end of the season. The recent departure of Merson and Boateng from Villa Park may also lead punters to ‘Sell’ Graham Taylor’s men on this particular betting market.
Spread Sell / Buy
West Ham 48.5 – 50
Aston Villa 47 – 48.5
The above spreads show the relative merits of “Buying” and “Selling” when it comes to Spread Betting. Buying West Ham at 50 for a £5 per point stake means you win £5 for every point they finish over 50. In this example, if Glenn Roeder guided the Clarets to the 65-point mark, you would make a total profit of 15 x 5 = £75.
Another advantage of Spread Betting is that you can back a team to do badly. “Selling” Aston Villa at 47 for a £3 per point stake means you want them to total as few points as possible. This time, you win £3 for every point that the Villains finish below the 47 point mark. For example, if they have a truly terrible season, landing up with only 33 points, then they will finish 14 points short of the spread (14 = 47 – 33). When multiplied by your £3 per point stake, a handsome profit of £42 (14 x 3) is made! Just like paying Judi Bola, you need to be strategic in wise in spread betting so you will have more chances of winning.
