Bet’s be ‘avin you: Football Betting tips for 8-9 January 2011
Bolton to win comfortably, Adam Birchall’s dream to continue, and a chestful of pearl necklaces
Return to profit last week with fifty pounds back on our outlays, and only Nottingham Forest costing another forty snoops.
This week obviously bets will be focussed on the FA Cup, but with Third Round day being notoriously difficult in terms of multiples, foreign and more predictable climes will be visited.
So Mr Blatter has stated that it is likely that the World Cup 2022 will be held in the winter. So Qatar can come in, promise everyone a summer tournament, bleat on about air-conditioned stadia and win the vote. As soon as the vote is done they suddenly change their plans. Thinking about doing the same this year with the missus. Tell her I’m gonna buy her something pwopa spesh for her birthday, remarking that diamonds would look nice on her ears, and she would look stunning with a pearl necklace (euphemism intended). Then as soon as the inevitable benefits are gained before the time come (back to that necklace), she opens the parcel to find a Sky 3D subscription.
£10 on Manchester United, Coventry to win and Bolton -1.5 on Asian Handicap gets you £56
So, everyone settling into the New Year nicely? No, me neither. Day in day out, sat down, staring at a screen, pretending to be nice to people while secretly not giving a flying eff what they say or think. Guess it’s exactly the same as the Christmas and New Year period, and maybe that’s the problem. Might as well go the whole hog and undo the trousers, get stuck into the scotch and rum and pray that this time next year you won’t feel so alone even with a wife and kids.
Celtic, Dundee United and Inverness Caledonian Thistle all to win at -1.5 on Asian Handicap gets you £46
But hey, there is a royal wedding to look forward to in 2011. Jesus, do not get me started. I heard on the news that they would be having a buffet at the wedding as oppose to a banquet. I would define news as a person, thing, or event considered as a choice subject for journalistic treatment. With four months until said buffet, I would rather hear about my own pets being eaten than what the Duchess of Kent will be noshing on (that, my friends, is the joy of imagery). Nice to see Miss Middleton being referred to now as Catherine. Queen Kate sounds about as ‘right’ as Sir Wayne, Dame Marsh or Mrs Barrymore.
