Curate's Egg

A bit of a mixed bag today for the Elo ratings. For the second week in a row, Manchester United were spot on, Crewe won comfortably, and in Scotland Aberdeen were a good bet for me, but one or two others let me down. None of the selections lost, (although Stirling Albion and Livingston left it very late) so the conservative approach of laying the opposition would have paid off nicely.

Football Elite returned to winning ways with their recommended bets as Mainz '05 beating Hannover '96 1-0. Since I signed up, their 27 selections are now 10-15-2, and interestingly, 22 have been under 2.5 goals. And just 2 losers is impressive. Again, a conservative approach would have reaped rich rewards.

From their short-listed bets, Borussia Dortmund beating Hamburg by 1-0 and Deportivo la Coruna beat Athletic Bilbao 3-1 for a very profitable day. The running total for these is 39 selections, going 15-15-9. 24 unders / 15 overs.
