Pick of the Week - The Championship - Game Week 35 Ties to be played 2nd March Brighton v Huddersfield - ko 15.00 Unbeaten in 4 games (3 wins all with clean sheets) and Brighton are well worth their 6th place in the Championship. They need to consolidate it today though with another victory and maintain their form until the end of the season. Things are still tight in the League and …

1x2 Betting - What’s The Best Price To Take?

Feb 26th, 2013 at 10:10 monkeytennis on Other Football 1 comments 1703 views

I'm interested to know what sort of odds people try to take when betting on the 1x2 market on football matches. Some people will prefer to rely on the bankers each week, maybe picking 5 or 6 teams at 1/2 or shorter for their accas, other people may prefer to place a double on two odds against shots. A lot of punters will reply with the answer “I'll take whatever price …

Feb 24th, 2013 at 22:46 on Other Football 5 comments 633 views

Another good weekend for this blog column with a 3.3 LSP over the two days. This blog now stands at an impressive LSP of 12.6. I will aim to keep these long term profits coming, with my selection criteria that I have perfected over the years. Just the one pick on Monday though, and that is over in Holland's second tier. Volendam V Dordrecht (home 2.0, away 3.75, …

Midweek Championship & Football League - 26th February

Feb 24th, 2013 at 14:29 garlicsauce on Other Football 1 comments 1469 views

Midweek Championship & Football League - 26th February Championship - Bolton v Peterborough - ko 20.00 I'm not sure this Bolton job has been the ‘dream job' that Dougie Freedman thought it would be so far this season. They have struggled at times and have been unable to put a winning run together. That form sees them disappointingly mid table in 15th on 42 points. The unexpected 4-1 win against high flying …

Why Arsenal Don't Miss Van Persie

Feb 24th, 2013 at 11:44 Chipmonkadidooda on Other Football 10 comments 1172 views

With a difficult fortnight for Arsenal behind them; just about out of all competitions despite having the second leg of the Champions League to come, Arsene Wenger is yet again under mounting pressure to walk away from the Emirates – a job he’s held for 17 years – second only to Alex Ferguson in the English game. Yet again Arsenal fans are looking at a trophy-less season after a masterclass …

DRMATT'S BEST VALUE BETS - FEB 24th

Feb 22nd, 2013 at 21:43 on Other Football 2 comments 591 views

From Sundays fixture list, here are the four selections which offer the most value. Xerez v Sabadell (home 2.45, away 3.12, draw 3.3) Some might think I have gone crazy suggesting to back an away side in Spain (where home advantage is much more important than in most other European leagues) and an away side that has lost the last three on the road at that! But lets delve a little …

Referee Stats & Live Premiership Matches

Feb 22nd, 2013 at 18:29 mercer on Other Football 2 comments 1897 views

I have been backing for some time now, players to be booked & having some decent success. Mainly do the live matches, because it gives us more to look forward to in the game. Also Betfair do most of the Premiership games & SkyBet do the live games. Get some decent prices for a booking, especially the strikers & can be priced big as 4/1 & Luis Suarez has many bookings …

Disappointing that last weeks blog made a slight loss, but the LSP still stands at a healthy 9.3 for this blog series. As usual I have been through the fixture lists from around the world for Saturdays games and here are the best value selections. Doncaster v Yeovil (home2.5, away 3.2, draw 3.5) Yeovil have a 100% record in the league in 2013 and have now won eight games in a …

The Premiership is back after a short break for FA Cup duty for many teams and we can get on with the business of seeing which side wins the league and which three teams are relegated.
