Southampton climb one place to No.2 this week after seeing off Newcastle at 7/5. This is the highest position the side have reached this season in our Profit Tables.
Despite another defeat Aston Villa remain in the Top 6 while Arsenal move up to No.11 after their stunning 7/2 win over Man City. QPR stay at No.18 but move into treble-figure loss figures for the first time this season after failing to win at 5/1 against Man Utd.
A good week for the Top 2 as Brentford (13/5) and Ipswich (13/10) both win at odds-against and move further clear of third place Birmingham.
Despite being near the bottom of the Profit Table for most of the season, Bolton now move into profit (£4.20) and up to No.11 as Neil Lennon’s side celebrate rewarding their backers at 16/5 against Sheffield Wednesday at the weekend.
There were wins for all of the Top 3 in the League One Profit Table. While Swindon stay top, Bristol City swap places with Rochdale in the No.2 position as their 11/10 win superseded Dale’s 7/10 win over struggling Crawley.
Worrying times for Peterborough who drop down to No.21 after failing to reward those punters who had backed them at 9/5 to get the better of Port Vale. Don’t tell the chairman!
Draws for No.1 Burton and No.2 Wycombe keep the gap at the top at just £1.10. Keep an eye on Exeter (No.4) and Stevenage (No.8) though as they continue to climb the Profit Table after another weekend win for the sides.
Tranmere move out of treble figure loss after an impressive 13/10 win against Accrington. They move two places to No.21 and push Portsmouth down to the bottom three after they failed to land odds of 17/10 against Burton.
A couple of weekend postponements mean very little change in the Premiership Profit Table. St Miren’s (No.10) 21/10 win over Ross County sees them swap places with Motherwell (No.11) in the bottom three.
With Queen Of The South failing to reward their backers against Falkirk they drop to No.4 in the Championship Profit Table. Hibs (3/10) and Raith Rovers (20/21) did win and move up one place to No.2 and No.3 in the table.
A stunning 7/2 win for Brechin against Stranraer sees them move up to No.2 in the table, while Peterhead had cause to celebrate this weekend with a 4/6 win over Stirling Albion that moves them up to No.5.
Queens Park go almost £40 clear after a big 15/8 home win over Arbroath in Scotland’s fourth tier. It was also a tremendous week for Annan who rise from No.10 to No.6 after a 6/4 win over East Stirling. Montrose now occupy bottom position.
Rayo Vallecano’s 7/2 win over David Moyes’ Real Sociedad has lifted the tiny capital club into the top-half. It was the biggest mover of the week whilst Valencia gained ground on the top-two with both Celta and Eibar failing to record a victory.
Elche’s rise continues as their 6/5 success over Levante means they’ve moved off the bottom into 13th since the league returned from its winter break.
The Bundesliga is closed for the winter break. Hannover sit top of the tree and a full £70 clear of their nearest challengers Eintracht Frankfurt.
Dortmund were unsurprisingly the worst side to back, returning a -£108 figure!
All-conquering Juventus continue their climb up the Serie A P&L table. Having taken Verona apart, the Old Lady are up to a season-high second but remain £55 short of league leaders Genoa.
Atalanta were the weekend’s biggest story; their 13/2 win at the San Siro over Milan lifted them up to 13th from 19th but they remain £41 in the red.
Nice’s 3/1 win on Friday night against Bordeaux means the south-coast club are now just £6 off the summit in France. Guingamp’s position weakened after their narrow 2-1 defeat at Marseille.
PSG ended their winless record at home to Evian but Laurent Blanc’s men were just 1/5 to seal maximum points and are still over £55 in the red.
