cheers mate..ticking over again...

wk 6 > usual top-up

best bet looks to be city home win agst struggling and conceding brum... (on the AH prob) or bolton to nick a result at wolves

all the away sides look to be in with chance of upsets this wk... tricky looking set of fixtures

have a fancy for bolton to get something at wolves..bolton +0 is shade above evens which tempts... b/burn could annoy spurs as the home side are stuggling with injuries and form in the EPL... and blackpool may yet again impress on their travels, over-priced again it appears (+0.5 is 11/10)

city -1.5 is near evens too.. should put a few past brum

hard to call but gut feeling is bolton this wk...

all of these look decent shouts to me but hard to pick any as a strong bet for this... perhaps the goals market may be calling.. hammers blackpool looks to have goals but odds are poor

havent time to look at corners markets but spurs bb may have over 11-12

ok.. will go with blackpool as I think holloway will be itching to get some pts and prove his theories this wk... hammers are poor despite picking up a bit recently - the +0.5 blackpool is over evens and looks good

bet ► blackpool +0.5 AH
odds ► 11/10
stake ► £60

seems like I'm on my own in this little world lol

football betting is obviously difficult and there are a lot of excellent blogs about at the moment trying to make a regular profit from footie

occasional singles is a very sensible way to go; the OLBG v Bookies threads have proved that to me... despite being limited to just the premier league, you can make a good profit by just picking a single 'best bet'

my record in last 3 seasons of doing this >

season 08/09 > profit 37.5%, ROI 17.3%

season 09/10 > profit 30.5%, ROI 31.3%

season 10/11 > profit 32.1%, ROI 55.2% (in progress)

not bad

really hard to call todays games

fancy the away sides to cause a lot of trouble... wigan and blackpool are too unporedictable and could stop the more obvious home wins... b/b may cause utd probs..sundo riding crest of a wave may be too good for poor wolves..but allrisky

might be spurs liv unders tomorrow as cant see many goals in that - spurs have had loads recently and are due a low scoring game

wigan on the +0.5, sunderand +0, blackpoo +1 etc..all look interesting... everton need to get out of a slump again. they do have runs of 6-7 games either v good or poor it seems

no confidence in today so might well take that spurs goals bet

risky indeed yesterday so glad I left them alone

have a real feelign for unders in the spurs game... might be daft but seems to me that they are due a low scoring game and with liverpool on their travels I can see it panning out that way..HT 0-0 I think and maybe a goal in the 2nd hafl.. spurs are in great form/spirits but do have the odd duff result... they may be too confident as that sometimes is their downfall

alos, defensively minded teams cause them problems at home and if they dont find a way thorugh early doors then they can run out of ideas

quite pleased with almost evens on this

bet ► spurs v liverpool under 2.5
odds ► 1.94
stake ► £50

last week's game was a winner until the 94th minute when spurs won it :D

happy days as a fan but a losing goals bet

anyway

top up again this wk... nothingjumps out bar a very small dabble on the gooners finding their form and spanking fulham

the 1.5AH on arsenal is above evens and I think they will score a few today - cant see them losing again at home and wenger will be really wanting a good win... 3-1 looks possible

not a strong shout so small stake

bet ► arsenal +1.5 AH
odds ► 21/20 (bet365)
stake ► £40

another loss last wk as arsenal could only win by the 1 goal.. went for the better odds of the 2 goal win.. hey ho

knew I should have gone for blackburn on the bounce.. instinct told me that one was good but didnt risk it

this wk... simple..city should be too good for west ham altho no tevez... they need to win these games and their perf at fulham was excellent... could be a repeat as hammers are poor


bet ► city
odds ► evens (Stan James)
stake ► £50
