Once More Unto The Breach

Back in the saddle, and so forth. Blackburn are my go-to guys at the moment and they are worthy of the maximum investment at home to Middlesboro, who must be due some kind of UEFA Cup hangover. In my opinion punters have over-reacted to the news that West Ham are going to field a weakened side against Portsmouth today. I also think that the "desperation factor" of teams facing relegation counts for least in the Premiership where the quality gap has the most effect. Finally in League Two Wycombe still look uncertain and I think that improving (and desperate) Torquay can nick something off them. Selectivity being the cornerstone of value betting, that's your lot.

I'm off to Loftus Road again today and a low score looks on the cards. Feel free to back under 2.5 goals in this one, if you trust me after what happened in the week ! I'm going to abstain myself, I don't want to be in Dom's position last week where a Rangers goal costs me money ... I know I'm a wuss.

Selections :

Back Blackburn, 5 pts @ 1.8
Back West Ham, 4 pts @ 2.28
Lay Wycombe, 4 pts @ 1.75

    I've become horribly addicted to the overs and unders and was mighty relieved to see Swansea get a late winner against Brentford last night for 2-1. Sick stuff. Anyway no bets from me today, although looking at that West Ham price...

    I hope you didn't mate, that was the red-headed stepchild of today's bets ...

    Quite pleased with Wycombe although I would have preferred a draw ! Rushen beating Orient was a double bubble bad result. The bottom of League Two is mad now. Some poor sods are going to get kicked out of the league on goal difference on the last day.

    Thought better of it luckily.

    Interesting that ALL of the teams with midweek FA Cup dates who played today lost. What chance Chelsea tomorrow? Errr, none probably.

    Cracking Wycombe bet!

    Shame about the O's.

    Yeah. Bloody Wycombe a cause for much frustration at Baldman Towers.

    They have now dropped points to every team in the bottom 8 of the division, including 5 to Torquay!

    In contrast they have a positive record against all of the top 7, beating Grimsby twice and taking 4 points out of 6 against Carlisle.

    The only game they have lost against any of these was against Cheltenham a couple of weeks ago, and only then as a result of an outrageous refereeing division.

    It would seem to be the case that they approach the weaker teams with a different attitude.

    If they fail to win the division they will not have to look far for the reason why I reckon.

    Very disappointing....speaking through my pocket of course!
