View Full Version : pre-match expectations not realistic!

Is this quite common for others? I am expected to avoid relegation in league 1, but manage to scrape through the play-off's, and am expected to avoid relegation from the championship. by all accounts I should be the whipping boys of the league and I am in 20th, 6 games in. However, whichever team I play, I am always near favourites, or 'a narrow defeat'. Yet, when I play a lower league team, I get a comfortable victory.

Palace were top, having won all 6 games, and the match prediction was a draw. How is that fair?

Makes it a lot harder to beat expectations I find.

I have seen this too. What are the odds based on?

The odds are based on the clubs reputations and their current form/league positions in comparison to each other iirc
