    Lightbulb The Averages Syndicate - Barclays Premier League edition

    Do you know your stuff when it comes to the English Premier League?

    Do you like a bet on the football?

    Then this is the thread for you

    PREMISE
    If a lot of people make predictions on the scores, by averaging out the predictions of everyone we can choose bets to place on each weekend's games.

    BACKGROUND
    CMCZ's grand Pool for the Euro 2016 was the inspiration for this idea. During the tournament I was averaging the scores predicted by everyone and picking bets based on the averages of the whole group's picks, these were quite successful which led me to want to start this syndicate for the new football league starting. I had a chat with Offside Trap and he also has a prediction game that he runs for the Premier League, his game runs on 10 week seasons and matches up predictors against each other in a competition to see who is the best at predicting the scores. He should open the thread for it in the next while and the predictions could be used for both purposes but I am not really interested in us battling it out against each other, although that will certainly be fun, this thread is all about beating the bookies.

    JOIN THE SYNDICATE

    So each week, I will post the fixtures for the league at the start of the week (Monday). You will then have until Thursday evening to respond with your predictions, trying to forecast every score in the league. Thursday deadline will give me a bit of time to sort out the spreadsheet for Friday morning and I will then post the averages. At this point we will all look at the average predictions and narrow it down to maybe 3/4/5 picks for the upcoming matches instead of me just suggesting a bet. The idea is then we have all agreed to a bet and stick a couple of quid on it for that weekend. Doesn't have to be big money,

    I usually do a bet for 5 or less on the football each weekend, rarely ever getting one up so this will take the place of that bet for the season, hopefully it is more successful and we can all take a few sheets off the bookies


    SO who's in?

    I know the league doesn't start for a while yet but we will need about 10+ people to make the averages worthwhile. Let's do it!

    True - I always have a 10 bet every Saturday anyway so this may just influence my thinking each weekend

    Next week I'll get some kind of fixtures for a trial run

    Just want to test out the response of everyone getting back with their prediction between the Monday and the Thursday and also to see about whittling the bets down between Friday morning and Saturday morning.

    It's always a good idea to do a dry run

    We probably may have known the Champions league hopeful teams better than the ones I'm choosing but the fixtures are on Tue/Wed so it doesn't really fit in with the scheduling for this one.
    I've picked a few fixtures from this weekend to throw up here as a test run. Scottish cup and MLS are playing this weekend so that'll do.

    Don't be worrying about your predictions being accurate, I'll not be investing anything on these although feel free to have a go yourselves syndicate members
    (it's only to get a feel for the routine so we know the craic each week)

    So the fixtures are up today.
    Please post your predictions in the thread by 18:00 GMT on Thursday (28th July)
    I'll sort out the averages on Thursday evening, post them to here as well and we can have a discussion on Friday to see what the picks should be.

    Saturday 30th July 2016
    Falkirk vs Brechin
    St. Johnstone vs Stirling
    Hamilton vs Livingston
    Stranraer vs Motherwell
    Raith vs Alloa
    Ross County vs Cove Rangers

    Sunday 31st July
    Dundee Utd vs Dunfermline
    New York City vs Colorado Rapids
    Seattle Sounders vs LA Galaxy
    DC United vs Montreal Impact
