We love predicting, so we thought we would predict how the English Premier League will look on Monday evening.(It's Thursday today)

How The Top of the Table Will Perform

Machester United & Liverpool

It is inevitable that United will continue to hold the summit and remain top dog. Klopps's Liverpool will also remain strong and keep second place after securing a memorable and classy win against their close neighbours and big money spenders City. Ultimately, Liverpool's relentless, insatiable and awe inspiring attack simply outgunned a hollow City side. When your defense is as permeable as Liverpools you have to be on the front foot, and they were. Tippy Tappy has no answer to the onslaught of a determined German Wehrmacht.


Chelsea, on the other hand, are mixing things up a bit. They will ominously move up to third after thrashing EPL newcomers and unexpected table toppers Huddersfield. Chelsea's win will only compound Manchester City's misery and with Pep Guardiola previously mouthing off how easy the Premier league is/was, Chelsea's leapfrog will be that extra bit juicy. Guardiola, on the other hand, will be hiding his blushes whilst his team slide down in a slippery 7th spot. Not as easy as you thought eh Pep! Tosser.


"I wan't sure I was up to it" - Wenger - stating the bleeding obvious

Arsene, on the other hand, will be holding his head high. Regardless of the incessant bombardment of insults, rotten tomatos and facts, his Arsenal side will limp up from 16th to 11th. Don't get too excited by this win though Arsene, there's going to be nose bleeds all round as the high altitude will almost certainly take its toll the following weekend, culminating in yet another dire drab defeat. Look out for that 4th step Arsene! It's a Doozey! Oh & regardless of this weeks win, your team is shit.

Scroll down past the table to see how the other half will perform.

How The Bottom of the Table Will Perform

In a nutshell, shit

Poor Bournemouth and Crystal Palace still remain bottom and pointless.

Very very pointless.

Great performances don't always earn points in the Premier League, but at least you'll soon face Pep and get some well earnt relief and an easy 3 big ones

West Ham, who before this weekend were also pointless, will have earnt some short lived relief by scraping un pois (that's 'one point') at home to Huddersfield. Someone needs to bring these Barking Mad Terriers down a peg or two, and the experienced relegation battlers are just the men to do it.

Proper Football

Well now you know what will happen, you can save a wad load of cash and go and watch some proper, real mans, football at the Almighty & Famous 'Spotland Stadium'! Rochdale are needing some support this season as they continue to out do all expectations. They have previous EPL Champions Blackburn Rovers visiting in what will prove to be a cracking showndown and surely attract a humongous crowd! Up The Dale!

Interestingly, FiC is predicting a draw with odds of 3 to 1 and a confidence of 50%. It'll be a great game but to be honest, there's better bets.

How Did We Predict this Table So Accurately

Simple! We looked at the Premier League Predictions and applied the predicted results to the current table. If a prediction hadn't yet been made, we applied an educated guess.

Arbitrage Opportunities as of 4th September

Wow! We have loads of arbitrage opportunities this week! Including some premiership games!! Check out the full list below or go to This Weeks Arbitrage Sports Games for the latest opportunities.

The Vasco da Gama v Gremio38 game has my attention simply because it has a significant profit margin and the dates are close together. I'm hoping I'm going to be able to find a bookie that hasnt changed their odds yet. The dates are only yesterday after all.

Actually I have found an opportunity at first port of call!!!


Bet365 Odds for Vasco da Gama v Gremio38

arb 1

As we can see in the diagram above Bet365 are currently offering odds of 3.5 for a Vasco da Gama home win. These are great odds!  

Now lets see what Pinnacle has to offer:


Pinnacle Odds for Vasco da Gama v Gremio38

Pinnacle are actually offering better odds for a draw or an away win to Gremio. You can see this in the screenshot below:

arb 2

We will take the away win and draw odds from Pinnacle. What a bargain!


It's a Win Win Scenario!

As you can see between Bet365 and Pinnacle we can get the following odds:

  • Home Win: 3.5
  • Draw: 3.29
  • Away Win: 2.44


Unbiased Arbitrage Strategy

We haven't yet fully discussed biased and unbiasded arbitrage strategy here at FiC yet, but in  a nutshell, a biased strategy is when you prefer one result over another. An unbiased strategy is when you have no idea which result will eventuate,

FiC has been unable to make a prediction for this match so we will use an unbiased strategy as follows:


Odds: 3.5 3.29 2.44
Wager Amounts: $30 $31.91 $43.09
Profit: $0 $0 $0.13


The table above is showing us that no matter whether the actual result is a win, lose or draw, we stand to lose nothing. If the result is an away win we will make 13 cents. Any other result simply returns our money back with no loss or gain.

Now I only wanted to spend $100 (in fact I had to make it $105) and I didnt want to higlight to bet365 that I was using an arbitrage system so I used a rounded stake. If I wanted to make a profit no matter the result I could have changed my home win to just over $30, upped the draw stake slightly and reduced the away amount. We'll do this another time however. 

Risk Free 8% Per Annum 

I've given this a go myself. Worst case scenario, I make no money. Best case: I make $0.13 !! Which may not sound like much, but it is 0.4% overnight with zero risk. If I was to find just one of these a week I would be making over 8% per annum, again with zero risk! Not a small risk. Zero Risk. Roll on arbitrage!!

All of this and I have only looked at one game!! I wonder if the others are as good? :-)
