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:

Key

  • PD – The total number of ‘Matches Played’ during the season so far.
  • 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.

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.

The Scottish Premiership

Celtic Glasgow Players On The Pitch

The Scottish Premiership is the top tier of professional football in Scotland. Consisting of just twelve teams, each team plays each other three times, either at home or away. Teams receive three points for a win and one point for a draw.

Since 2000/01, the league has incorporated a split system in which, after 33 matches have been played each, the league splits into two divisions of 6. This is a feature unique to the Scottish Premiership and one that, along with all the other potential outcomes in Scotland’s top flight football competition, keeps bettors well and truly entertained all season long. And, if this wasn’t enough, this league also includes one of world football’s’ all-time great rivalries, Celtic versus Rangers, the Glasgow derby otherwise known as The Auld Firm.

What Will Happen to Scottish Premiership 2019/20 Following Corona Outbreak?

As of yet, no final decision has been made although this is very much a case of watch this space. A more clarified position will no doubt be declared anytime soon. As we stand, all professional football in Scotland and the wider UK is in a state of shutdown until April 30, 2020.

At the time of writing, UEFA announced that the Euro 2020 tournament has been rescheduled to take place next summer. This, then, would leave space for the Scottish FA to finish the current season, which is their stated desire, in the summer, allowing the remaining few outcomes to be concluded. While this could impact on future tournaments, it’s important to remember that the next ‘summer’ world cup, has already been moved to Autumn 2022 as FIFA agreed that Qatar’s climate would be unsuitable for football that time of year.

Future European domestic seasons will of course be impacted by this, so this could prove to be a good time for these leagues to blend seamlessly into that adjustment and reduce its impact. Of course, the season could just be called off altogether, something that nobody wants, but what happens to the outstanding outcomes remains unclear. At the point of shutdown, Celtic were near-certain winners but the relegation spots still to be finalised as well as promotions and relegations throughout Scottish football so expect an announcement soon.

Scottish Premiership 2019/20 Outright Tips & Predictions

Celtic are currently 13 points clear but have played a game more which provides their cross-city rivals Rangers with some hope. In truth, this is but a slim hope as time is fast running out. What could throw a spanner in the works is the matter of how the players, teams and coaches all react to this unprecedented interruption. Should everyone pick up where they left off, then Celtic must surely be looking at their ninth title in a row as a mere formality. However, if this enforced shutdown impacts on their players' fitness or mindset, then Steven Gerard’s Gers might have a shot at redemption just yet.

Scottish Premiership 2019/20 Scottish Premiership Top 6 Finish Betting Tips

St Johnstone currently sit one point off the pace in seventh place. Interestingly, they have played one game less than Hibernian, so this is easily closable. The top two are a given, as they always are, but while Kilmarnock won’t be giving up hope anytime soon, they will need to hit the ground running when the league starts going again. Realistically though, I would expect the top six to remain as it is by the time the season ends, whenever that may be.

Scottish Premiership 2019/20 To Finish Bottom Betting Tips

Oddly, but pleasingly for savvy punters like yourselves, Hamilton remains favourites to finish at the bottom despite Hearts being bottom by a considerable six points margin. This anomaly is definitely one to jump in on given the distance that Hearts need to close with time running out. With eight games remaining to complete after we resume, that’s a pretty big swing for a team that has only won four games all season and a price that the bookies might regret.

Scottish Premiership 2019/20 Top Scorer Tips

Odsonne Edouard, Celtic’s record signing, is the runaway leading goal scorer and in all likelihood, save for picking up an injury while the season is on pause, will collect the golden boot. There are only eight games remaining and the Frenchman averages a goal each 96 minutes which, when taken into consideration that he is nine goals clear of Jermaine Defoe in second place, and ten ahead of Christian Doidge and red card machine Alfredo Morelos, is extremely unlikely to get caught.

Why Stats Help With Betting on Scottish Premiership

While there can be no guarantees, by far the best way to perfect successful betting is to load up on as much knowledge as possible before you lay down your hard earned money. To that end, there are few things in sport worth studying more than the underlying performance data and the stats they create. That is the whole purpose of this page and the tables we have created upon it. So that you can make bets on the Scottish Premiership with as much confidence as possible.

Bet With Knowledge

As we mentioned above, stats are the best pre-event indicator of all of the potential and probable likelihoods that might occur in our chosen market. By utilising them and the tables we have provided here, you know that you have given yourself a far better chance of scooping a successful dividend than if you had simply bet blind or gone with your gut, a tactic that seldom rewards.

Beat The Bookies At Their Own Game

The very same statistics that you use to create your bets are the very same numbers that the betting operators use to draft their odds. Odds that have been crafted by calculating probable outcomes against all of the variables. These probable outcomes are the results of analysing reams and reams of performance data and optimal statistics, leaving no margin for error. It is their weapon against you so you should feel free to use it against them.

Scottish Premiership Structure

There are twelve teams competing in the Scottish Premiership and each team plays each other three times. Of these three occasions, two matches are played at home and one away, or vice versa. Teams receive three points for a win and one point for a draw, while losses receive no points. As with most league tables, the team with most points come the end of the season wins the title while the team with the least points finishes bottom. All twelve teams are ranked according to the points they accrue and, if necessary, goal difference can be used as a deciding factor.

Since 2000/01, a split system has been in operation in the Scottish Premiership. What this means is that after 33 fixtures have been played, the top 6 play each other again, while the bottom 6 play each other again in order to determine the final places. These two divisions of six are known as The Championship group and The Relegation group.

Regarding European qualification, the Scottish Premiership has one Champions League place which goes to the winners. Due to Scotland’s world ranking as a nation, Scottish clubs have to enter in the very first qualifying round. This means that the Premiership winners will be forced to follow the four rounds long Champions Path in order to qualify but will not play a team from a high-ranking league. Should the Scottish champions be eliminated from the Champions League qualifiers then they will drop into the Europa League. The second and third finishing teams are also guaranteed a Europa League place, entering in the first qualifying round. The bottom placed Premiership club at the end of the season is relegated, and swaps places with the winner of the Scottish Championship.

History of Scottish Premiership

The Scottish Football League (SFL) dates back as far as 1890 and by 1893 had begun to include professional players. At this point a second tier was added to Scottish football creating a Division One and Two. By 1946, the topflight was rechristened to Division A for nine seasons before reverting back to Division One again. It stayed this way until 1975 when it became known as the Premier Division but since 2013 has been called Scottish Premiership. In 2001, a split system was introduced where the top six and bottom six each split up into two mini-leagues, playing each other one more time in order to determine the final standings. In 2012, 25 of the 30 SFL member clubs voted to relegate Rangers into the Third Division after the club went into administration.

ThePuntersPage Final Say

It’s true that the standard of Scottish football has depleted a bit in recent years, but the clubs remain elite all the same, in particular the big two that contest the city of Glasgow, Celtic and Rangers also known as The Auld Firm. Even allowing for Scotland’s descent from greatness, this league still throws up great excitement, legendary rivalries and fantastic opportunities over the course of a long season. The league campaign stretches from August through May and, thanks to introduction of the split, originally conceived to avoid an overly crowded fixture list but which does genuinely give the league an extra level of excitement, there are more bets to make on this league than in other comparable competitions and always keeping the thrills coming.
