PAUL STEELE POWER RATINGS.

Delboy99

..... just noted for interest purposes that the first two of the Championship ratings were bang on song with Fulham and Notts Forest victories. Also The Cottagers were the first part of my Championship treble, so quite an encouraging start.:cool:

..... the Paul Steele Power Ratings showed a very creditable 8 correct from 10 predictions, whilst the Elo Ratings gathered individually from the Club Elo site were down in second place with also a very creditable 7 correct from 10 . So not a lot in the final outcome as we have more for this coming week. From an interest point of view the Power ratings also produced a very nice five fold for me at 5.21 with all selections listed above proving correct. Unfortunately the same cannot be said about the treble with two of the three going down. I suppose one has to be thankful for small mercies! :eek:

..... OK it is that time again and this time the Power Ratings take their bow this week as just being ahead of the Elo Ratings by 8 correct to 7 from the ten matches.
ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE.
Brighton & H A 9.403 v Tottenham H 10.532 -1.129 2
Burnley 10.067 v Everton 9.369 .698 1
Liverpool 11.094 v Leicester C 10.849 .245 1
Norwich C 9.377 Aston V 9.718 .341 1
Watford 8.525 v Sheffield U 9.931 -1.406 2
West Ham U 10.306 v Crystal P 9.960 .346 1
Arsenal 10.090 v Bournemouth 10.212 -.122 2
Newcastle U 9.020 v Manchester U 10.059 -1.039 2
Manchester C 11.628 Wolves 9.651 1.977 1
Southampton T 9.779 v Chelsea 10.244 -.465 2



.... strange, there does not appear to be many draws knocking around in these anticipated predictions. The Arsenal v Bournemouth game looks to be the nearest thing in the EPL. Still I think after last week's successful 5 timer I might have another dabble. Will be back later to jot these down when I have had a chance to study further. Championship ratings will appear later as I forgot about matches which took place tonight and those which will be played tomorrow. Please note therefore that any ratings which were displayed earlier are now void due to this miscalculation. Humble apologies. ;)

..... OK after the past two nights Championship matches which had previously been overlooked, the revamped power ratings are back and hopefully looking good for the weekend's action:-
CHAMPIONSHIP.
Birmingham C 9.878 v Middlesbrough 9.672 .206 1
Fulham 10.899 v Charlton A 9.767 1.432 1
Bristol C 10.436 v Reading 9.914 .522 1
Derby Co. 9.800 v Luton T 9.673 .137 1
Huddersfield T 9.359 v Hull C 10.150 -.791 2
Millwall 9.696 v Leeds U 10.468 -.772 2
Notts F 10.545 v Brentford 10.139 .406 1

Swansea C 10.660 v Stoke C 9.162 1.498 1
W.B.A. 10.507 v Cardiff C 10.357 .150 1

.....strangely enough not a draw in sight, it will be interesting to find out if this is the case. There looks to be a few choice bets there from which I shall be having a dabble, but need to have a look at the betting prior to making my mind up. ;)

..... just had a quick look at the betting and decided to have a dabble with a treble on the EPL matches Tottenham H, Sheffield U and Manchester U @ odds 12.27 :eek: and a more conservative trixie on the Championship matches:- Fulham, Preston N.E. and Swansea C the treble would weigh in at 4.48 so will be interesting to see how these fare after my winning five fold last weekend.:D

Dellboy99 - I managed to pick up a second hand copy of "The Essential Football Betting Guide" that you mentioned. I'd love to tell you what I think, but the print is so small, that'll have to wait until I get some new glasses🤓

Colt
..... excellent, I hope that you really enjoy getting into it. There is a load of info to wade through and it all depends on what makes you tick. Have a look at the twelve systems which is what he originally tested and somewhere near the end there is a table of how they fared when put into practice. Of course you don't have to wait of a new pair of glasses, there are always plenty of magnifying glasses around to help you with the print. :eek:

..... it's that time again, time for another round of Paul Steele Power Ratings, only this time they are posted well in advance as the round of international matches completely interferes with the football program once again. These are for matches played around 19th October:-

Hull C 9.747 v Q.P.R. 9.873 -.126 2X

In the EPL the Aston Villla v Brighton match looks a close affair whilst in the Championship the Charlton v Derby and Hull v Q.P.R. games look to be pretty tight examples. Will study these and perhaps have a flutter later. :eek:

The Hull C v W.B.A. looks tight, could be a good game. ;)

..... Iv'e been thinking about dropping the Championship Power Ratings as they look surplus to requirements. Hardly anyone appears to comment on them anyway, so unless someone feels as if they should stay, then please shout out. Otherwise if I am in the same frame of mind after the weekend results and no one having a strong view to keep in the meantime, then they will disappear next week and only the EPL will be retained. Cheers. :)

..... had a little sneaky treble on Chelsea, Leeds U, Leicester C @ odds 3.77 looks decent at this stage. :eek:
