In-Play Soccer Spreadsheet 15th-17th August


Similar to the break-back concept in Tennis, the In-play Soccer Spreadsheets highlight opportunities where it is viable to oppose teams winning in matches.

This can be done in a variety of guises - a lay of the team winning can be considered, or backing the losing team -0.5 goals or +0.5 goals at half time could be another method.  The in-play goal markets can also be used, backing over x goals when a team with poor lead retention stats take an early lead.

It was week two in some leagues across the 15-17th August, and we also saw the start of the English Premier League season.  Here is an analysis of how the situations flagged up by the spreadsheets fared last weekend:-
