Scottish Premiership Profit & Loss Statistics
The purpose of our Scottish Premiership Profit & Loss tables is to see how much each team would have returned had you backed them to win every game with £10 level stakes. You can then spot, at a glance, who has been providing the best value over the course of the campaign.
The table below ranks all 12 Scottish Premiership sides based on profitability (#1 being most profitable).
You can select (using the tabs) to see data based on ‘Overall‘ results (Home & Away form combined), ‘Home‘ results (home form only) and ‘Away‘ results (away form only). The data is updated every day.
We also provide P&L stats for the following leagues:
- English Premier League
- English Championship
- English League One
- English League Two
- Spanish La Liga
- German Bundesliga
- Italian Serie A
- French Ligue 1
- P/L – Total profit or loss if £10 was staked on this team to win every game.
- ROI (Return On Investment) – Total profit or loss as a % of total stakes if £10 was staked on this team to win every game.
Important: If the stats on this page haven't updated then please clear your cache.
How Are The Profit & Loss Figures Calculated
As mentioned earlier, the Profit & Loss (P/L) statistics are calculated as if you were to back each team to win every game with £10 stakes using odds from bet365. The data is then added together cumulatively throughout the season to give the total profit or loss each team would gave generated.
ROI (Return On Investment) is calculated by dividing the total Profit/Loss by the number of matches played and then converted into a percentage.

It’s important to note that the COVID-19 crisis was responsible for less matches being played in the 2019/20 season.
Scottish Premiership Stats: Home/Away Goals & Win Percentage Stats

It’s unsurprising to see that Scottish Premiership teams tend to win more on their own soil scoring a higher rate of goals in the process. Indeed, home teams have won 42.6% of games over the last 5 years, while away teams have won 33.2%. An average of 1.48 goals per match have been scored by the home side, and 1.22 for the away side.

While 2 home were cancelled during 2019/20, the 93.33%-win record they achieved that season is the highest over the last 5 years. Their 40 point total in 2017/18 is the lowest, however their decent away form ensured they still claimed the title.
Scottish Premiership Stats: Champions’ Attack
|Season||Team||Goals Scored||Goals per Match|
Celtic’s title winning teams have scored an average of 87.6 goals, 2.43 per game. The 2016/17 season stands out here, with 106 goals being an extraordinary tally over 38 games. The 2019/20 season actually saw them have a higher goals per match ratio, although it must be noted that stats could be inflated due to less games being played.

|Season||Team||Goals Conceded||Goals Conceded per Match||Clean Sheet Percentage|

This surpassed the previous Scottish Premiership points record they had also set in 2001/02 of 103 points. Rangers feature only once in this top five list: the 2002/03 season where they dramatically finished level on 97 points with their bitter rivals. Rangers claimed the title by a single goal that season.

Why Statistics Help with Betting on the Scottish Premiership
So why do stats matter while placing your bets? Let’s take a look.
An Important Source of Knowledge
Of course, football is an unpredictable sport which consistently delivers novel situations and circumstances. However, the past is still a crucial source of knowledge that can guide us towards forecasting future events. Through statistical analysis, one can distinguish patterns from years gone by that could be relevant going forward.
Beat The Bookies At Their Own Game
It's no secret that bookies’ odds are largely driven by statistical data. After all, their prices rely on probabilities, which is why in most cases the punter and the bookie agree, resulting in a short-priced favourite. Bookies aren’t perfect though, and sometimes they get prices wrong. Our job is to work out which data they could be missing or overlooking and use it to our advantage.
If you want to be a profitable sports bettor, you must always be on the lookout for value bets. Emotional bets may come off sometimes, but chances are, this won’t work over the long term. Supporting your bets with data – such as form and expected goal metrics (xG) is a smart way to go about things. Football is becoming increasingly more data-driven, and there are numerous resources for you to play around with.
