Three Winners, Two Draws, Three Losers in our first week. Not a bad start and gives us something to work with and improve upon
Here are the results from the first week of the football accumulator system:
0-1 Bristol Rovers v Accrington Stanley 21/20
2-2 Port Vale v Northampton Town 21/20
2-0 West Ham v Wigan Athletic 5/4
1-1 Sheffield Wednesday v Ipswich Town 6/5
2-1 York City v Southend United 6/5
0-1 Annan Athletic v Stirling Albion 6/5
1-2 Elgin City v Berwick 21/20
1-0 Birmingham City v Leeds United 13/10
Considering that we let the fixtures pick themselves because we didn't have many games to choose from at the odds we selected - it's really not a bad start. Par for the course is good going and it gives us something to build on.
Especially considering the terrible start - I'd barely settled down with a cold beer when I looked at the skysports screen and found two of our picks going down the swanny after two minutes being played so all in all I'm pleased with the first weeks results.
Interesting that in our picks two of the losers were relegation threatened teams so that should give us a pointer for the future - exclude relegation battlers from the accumulator!
This week I'll expand the odds slightly so that we get a wider pool of games to choose from, then we can exclude those teams at the lower reaches of their leagues and hopefully improve the hit rate.
A good start.
