Last weekend started well with my early kick off NAP coming in, making it 15 out of 30 NAPS. A decent end to the day too with a nice profit of £99.10. Hoping the run continues this weekend.
I will try a slightly different style of blog today. I will give the matches I fancy and the bets (with prices). MY BETS at the bottom will be the games where I am staking money.
Straight into it……..
Premier League – There are a few games this weekend to wet the appetite. The problem is the price, whilst I expect them to win it seems that finding value is a bit more difficult. There are 4 to go at here.
Newcastle Vs Arsenal (8/13 William Hill)
Southampton (1/2 Paddy Power) Vs Burnley
Stoke (5/4 William Hill) Vs Crystal Palace
Tottenham (8/13 Boyle Sports) Vs Leicester
The only game offering true value is the Stoke game. They are great at home and look a solid outfit this season under Hughes. Although they are up against a team in form I think they will have enough to overturn Pardew and his men. Chelsea and Man City are the only teams to come away from the Britannia with victories. Countering that statistic is the fact that Palace have only lost 1 of their last 6 on the road. Confident of it being 2 from 7 though.
Whilst I fancy the others to win the only one I strongly fancy is Arsenal. A London double pays 2.59 at Boyle Sports. The fourfold is only a poultry 8.55 with best price (again) being Boyle Sports.
Championship – I have spotted 2 potential gems this weekend. Both teams featured in a game which I bet on last weekend (sadly it lost). I am tipping Blackburn and Charlton for success this weekend and the prices suggest that investing in them would be a good shout.
Blackburn (13/10 William Hill) Vs Brighton
Charlton (19/10 Boyle Sports) NAP Vs Reading
The price in the Blackburn match tends to reflect the fact that Brighton are a bit of a bogey team for Blackburn. Blackburn suffered a home defeat to Brentford last time out but the away form of Brighton offers enough evidence to suggest they can shake off the hoodoo.
Reading have won 1 and lost 4 of their last 6 trips to The Valley. Charlton will be looking to bounce back from their recent disappointing home defeat to Blackburn.
The double is 6.52 with Boyle Sports.
League One – Another couple of games to get our teeth into in League One, it seems more of a week for the punter this time round,more so than recent weeks.
Crewe (12/5 Bet 365) Vs Oldham
Sheffield United (7/10 William Hill) Vs Port Vale
Crewe have dreadful away form but reasonable home form. At this price I think they are worth a flutter, especially against an Oldham side who are struggling to muster up any points home and away. I keep tipping Sheffield United as I think their fortunes have to turn. The price isn't fantastic but I fancy them to pick up all 3 points and get their promotion push back on track.
League Two – Finally we look at the lower of the English Leagues. We complete the hat trick of leagues with two teams tipped.
Southend (3/4 William Hill) Vs Cambridge United
Stevenage (37/40 Bet Victor) Vs Dagenham and Redbridge
In recent weeks I have been betting a lot in this league as I have liked the prices. They have come from the unpredictability of results too though. Both these teams are odds on but the double pays 5.08 with Victor.
Stoke (5/4 William Hill) Vs Crystal Palace – £25
Blackburn (13/10 William Hill) Vs Brighton – £50
Charlton (19/10 Boyle Sports) NAP Vs Reading – £75
Crewe (12/5 Bet 365) Vs Oldham – £25
Southend (3/4 William Hill) Vs Cambridge United – £50
Stevenage (37/40 Bet Victor) Vs Dagenham and Redbridge – £25
Lucky 15 – Blackburn, Charlton, Southend and Crewe – £3 returns £428.18 (Bet 365)
