A Small Interest

It's a Saturday on the couch for me, as I'm off to Charlton-Newcastle tomorrow. Unfortunately that game has mid-table mediocrity stamped all over it, but you never know, both sides could unleash a free-flowing spectacle of entertainment with the pressure off. It could happen.

As for today, not too much catches the eye but, unprofessional though it is [1], let's have a few small wagers for an interest. West Ham could have their eyes on the cup semi-final and Wigan are capable of turning them over. Both Sheffield United and Leeds are in desperate need of the Heimlich maneuver, and they can continue to choke today. Neither Stoke (at Leeds) nor Southampton (at Sheffield United) are in much form but that's virtually irrelevant. Back them both with a goal start. Improving Sheffield Wednesday can come away from Wolves with a result. Finally the heart says Barnet are due a win. Let's hope so !

Back Wigan, 3 pts @ 2.12
Back Southampton (+1), 3 pts @ 1.85
Back Stoke (+1), 3 pts @ 2.02
Lay Wolves, 4 pts @ 1.64
Back Barnet, 2 pts @ 2.46

[1] But seeing that I'm not a professional sports bettor, that's allowed.

    I like the look of Wigan. But then I liked the look of Norwich last night and look what happened there :-(
