Explaining the EPL Handicap table

The Premier League handicap table provides season-long data for teams cover pecentage on Pinnacle's handicap
1. ATS
The occasions where the team has out-performed its handicap. On split bets (e.g. 1.75, or 1.5 and 2), covering half of the handicap is counted as a full cover. Arranged as covered – push – not covered.

2. Precentage (%)
The percentage of occasions where the team has out-performed its handicap.

3. Handicap Form
Form shows whether a team covered, pushed or failed to cover their handicap for the last 10 Premier League games. It is ordered to prioritise the most-recent wins. Therefore a team that covered their last game will be placed higher than a team that has covered their previous nine games but lost their last one.

Why the soccer betting handicap is important

Understanding how a team performs against their handicap is not only vital for handicap betting (learn about handicap betting), but also helps bettors compare their perception of a team against the market’s predictions.

For example, most people would consider Stoke City an average EPL side, but in the 2012-13 and 2013/14 season’s, The Potters beat their handicap 55.3% and 63.2% of the time – the highest in the Premier League. In the 2014-15 season they finished in 3rd place in the Pinnacle handicap table. This highlights that for three consecutive seasons the market has undervalued Stoke’s ability.

In comparison, the market overvalued Manchester United for two seasons running as they failed to cover the spread in 55.3% of Premier League games in 2013-14 and 57.9% of the time in the 2014/15 season.
