Weekend accumulator: FA Cup takes centre stage but don't forget about the lower leagues

Jan 28th, 2016 at 20:42 undertherobe on Other Football 0 comments 423 views

Not the best of weeks last week with just the two winners although 5/1 shot York City grabbed a draw away at Carlisle. The FA Cup 4th round takes centre stage this weekend so there is no Premier League action but that hasn't stopped me from hunting down a four-fold acca as I look to take the singles back into profit....... Running Totals Singles: 49/91 (53.85% strike rate), 1.55 pts loss (-1.70% …

FA Cup-Liverpool v West Ham United

Jan 28th, 2016 at 18:17 redhammer on Other Football 0 comments 352 views

Liverpool v West Ham United Head And Shoulders Better Than Last Week West Ham needed to bounce back after a poor effort at Newcastle the previous week and it did not take long at all, 53 seconds on the clock and Valencia had ruined a lot of first goalscorer bets as he tucked home Payets low cross. Just 8 minutes later though and it was 1-1. Jenkinson has had a poor season …

Underdogs ACCA betting challenge

Jan 28th, 2016 at 05:32 ibfm23 on Other Football 0 comments 956 views

THE BACKGROUND This year numerous underdogs have risen to the challenge across most European Leagues, most notably Leicester in England but also the likes of Sassuolo and Empoli in Italy, Eibar in Spain, Hertha in Germany and Angers in France. These clubs have not fizzled post the holiday period and are still lingering in the top third of the table. Last week I was hugely impressed by Bologna's odds to beat …

Gameweek 22 Serie A Betting Tips - Focus on Milan v Inter

Jan 28th, 2016 at 04:48 ibfm23 on Other Football 0 comments 445 views

Welcome back to the weekly Serie A betting tips. This week all eyes will be on Sunday's Milan derby. Inter currently stand 8 points ahead of Milan however Mancini's men have been limping since the turn of the year, 1 win in 4, and with Napoli and Juventus keeping up an incredible pace a negative derby result could land a definite blow to Inter's outside title challenge. The Rossoneri's results …

Euro 2016 - Lowest scoring team market

Jan 25th, 2016 at 22:00 botev1921 on Other Football 1 comments 2167 views

My examination of the various Euro 2016 markets continues and after looking at the draw closely and then addressing the potential top scorers I will go into a less-popular territory and check on the teams most likely to score the least number of goals. Only four of the mainstream bookies are currently offering this market but I am exceptionally intrigued by the potential for profits it offers and there is …

British Football First Scorer Pointers 30/31 January

Jan 25th, 2016 at 20:15 LustForLeith on Other Football 0 comments 392 views

British Football First Goal Scorer Pointers 30/31 January That was a bit better. Almost. Sort of. I forgot Aberdeen were playing on Friday night and in doing so forgot to back Rooney to score first. Which he did! McBookie had a problem taking bets on the Peterhead and Dunfermline game so I couldn't back McAllister which was just as well as he didn't score. But of the ten selections from last week, five …

Euro 2016 - Group C preview and betting tips

Jan 25th, 2016 at 05:35 ibfm23 on Other Football 0 comments 555 views

Group C - Germany, Poland, Ukraine and Northern Ireland. Needless to say, Leow's side are hot favorites to go through and win the group, bet365 offering best odds at 1.4. There is very little scope on such odds, more so with such sturdy opposition. Poland have given the Germans their fair share of headaches during the qualification campaign which has time and time again exposed some of the World Champions's weaknesses. …

Weekend acca: Will Carlisle struggle again following their extra time adventures in mid-week?

Jan 21st, 2016 at 21:59 undertherobe on Other Football 1 comments 338 views

Just the two winners last week and it took the singles picks back into a slight loss on the season. It's another full house of league action to look forward to this weekend and a big priced accumulator once again that will guarantee profit on the season should it come in............. Running Totals Singles: 47/86 (54.65% strike rate), 0.05 pts loss (-0.06% roi) Accumulators: 2/21 (9.52% strike rate), 7.71 pts profit (36.71% roi) A …

Gameweek 21 Serie A Betting Tips

Jan 21st, 2016 at 05:27 ibfm23 on Other Football 0 comments 335 views

Italian football is on the rise and as an avid follower I feel that the big clubs may soon become major players on the European scene once again. Milan travel to Empoli on Saturday evening and I am surprised to see the side I support (in Italy) priced at 2.5 with most major bookies. Empoli failed to win against the current top 6, drew with Napoli back n September and …

Leicester City Good To Beat Tottenham Hotspur Again?

Jan 20th, 2016 at 16:55 Hogsback on Other Football 0 comments 290 views

Live tonight on BBC1 It has looked like Leicester City have had a bit of a hold over Tottenham Hotspur over the last couple of weeks. The FA Cup draw saw Tottenham equalise with a disputed penalty in the final minutes. Then Leicester City secured a league win at White Hart Lane. Leicester City made probably more changes to their side than Tottenham did in the first cup match. They will probably …
