Worth 700 Grand Of Anyone's Money

Easter weekend, nyum nyum. With Easter being so late this year, a lot of issues have already been settled. The Championship in particular is practically done and dusted. Some are wary of betting on games where neither team has much to play for, but someone has to win [1] and the books still add up to the same per cent so why not.

West Ham look great value to beat poor travellers Manchester City. Bolton are nobody's pushover at the Reebok, Chelsea haven't been playing well and have had the pressure taken off by United's slip-up yesterday. Bolton can dig out a result here. And I think that Fulham should beat Charlton at the Cottage.

Crewe are rocking. I missed a trick not backing them last weekend after I saw them play so well at Loftus Road. They can take something from Palace who have a playoff place locked up. Brighton are so poor that even inconsistent, nothing to play for Ipswich are backable at evens. Finally Chester are on a good run and it's worth once again taking the opportunity to oppose Wycombe against them.

Summary :

Back West Ham, 5 pts @ 2.38
Lay Chelsea, 5 pts @ 1.81
Back Fulham, 3 pts @ 2.10
Lay Crystal Palace, 5 pts @ 1.62
Back Ipswich, 3 pts @ 2.00
Back Chester, 3 pts @ 2.64

[1] er, unless it's a draw

Results : 4/6 +12 pts not bad. Particularly good effort from Crewe to pull back to 2-2 after I'd given up on them. Running total 17/35 +3.2 pts.
