Betting tips 25th October

Gambling cn be a cruel cruel game.  Fine margins and correct decisions can be the difference in big profit or loss.  Instead of the current balance being -£106.25 it could be £265.  Poor referring decisions and shock results have hindered the progress.  Not to mention the ONLY week I don't put the singles in a double and they both come in.  I thought Arsenal seemed sure fire and would boost the odds so I placed them in both doubles.  Both my singles came in (doubles odds just over 3 to 1) and I decided against it.  8 out of 10 NAPS and still in negatives.  Arsenal were also the only team to let us down in the six fold.  If you are following my singles and not my accas then you would be well up.  My NAPS have all been around even or better so I hope you are having a better time of it than me at the minute.  I won't let it deter me and I will try and get back on my horse.  I did have £20 on Aguero FGS and City win with Betway but this came through on a text just before kick off.  I got a tidy 7 to 1.  I haven't placed it on the sheet as I didn't tip it,I want to keep everything transparent.

Premier League – Things are still too delicate and raw to bring myself to backing Arsenal but they look reasonable odds at 4/5 (Stan James) away to Sunderland.  Swansea (NAP) at 19/20 (Hills) at home to Leicester looks the best bet of the day in the Premier League and will be one that I will be having.  It seems I have it in for Leicester as my NAP last week was also against them.  Not many games on the Saturday, mainly due to European commitments.

Championship – Derby at home to Wigan seems a very generous price 4/5 (Hills) .  Derby are in a rich vain of form and Uwe Rosler's wigan side are struggling without a win in their last 7 games and 4 nil nils.  The next pick is a strange one as it is Bolton to beat Brentford.  Bolton are second bottom but Neil Lennon will be making his debut in front of the Bolton fans and I think he will turn things round at the club.  The price of 6/4 with Hills makes it even more of an incentive to back Wanderers.  Brentford are mid table and have picked up a couple of away wins but I fancy Bolton to edge it.  Watford are a tempting 3/1 but Boro have only lost one in their last 8 so it would take a brave man to bet against Boro.

League One – Port Vale and Preston are the only two home teams in the division that are playing opposition below them.  I am not a huge fan of backing away teams but there seems one game this week in this league that offers decent value. Rochdale away to Yeovil seems a great bet.  Yeovil haven't won for 5 games and seemed woeful against Sheffield United midweek.  Rochdale have had one blip against Barnsley (a game I beton, typically) but I think this will be comfortable for them.  17/10 for Rochdale at Victor is a great price for a team who have won 4 out of 6 away games already this season.

League Two – My information in this league are purely based on Tables and form this week as I haven't had opportunity or time to delve deeper.  Luton at home at 6/5 (Hills) against Northampton.  Wycombe at home to Dagenham at 8/11 (Coral).  I think Wycombe is one to avoid at this price though as they have had some suspect results at home this season.  The price for Luton reflects the fact that Northampton are considerably better away from home than they are at home.  I won't be having anything in this league this week.


Swansea 19/20 (Hills) NAP – £50

Derby 4/5 (Hills) -£50

Bolton 6/4 (Hills) – £50

Rochdale 17/10 (Victor) – £50

Doubles, Trebles and 4 fold – 11 bets @£3 each

Additional Bet.  I have had a tip from a friend that follows NFL.  His NAP this week is Detroit Lions to beat Atlanta Falcons with a -3.5 handicap (10/11 Betway).  There is no home advantage for the Falcons as it takes place at Wembley.  It's on Sunday at 13:30.  I will be having £50 on it.
