Bet’s be ‘avin you: Football betting tips for the 10-11 March
A lovely week of betting last week. I gave you £70 worth of tips and it returned £137. It would have been £254 but for Birmingham chucking away a two goal lead against Derby at home, but you can’t be greedy I guess, and Michael Chopra certainly did the job, with him opening the scoring netting us 84 big ones. Anyway, enough boasting (because pride comes before a fall), and on we go…
First bet of the day is a Football League double. It starts with Blackpool to win away at Peterborough at 7/5. Posh’s season has unravelled slightly after a great beginning, and they have now won just one of their last 12 games. Blackpool meanwhile, despite their midweek setback against Derby, have hung around the playoffs all season. Add to this a home win for Carlisle at home to Bury and it gives you…… profit.
£10 on Blackpool and Carlisle to win gets you £45
Next we head to the Premier League, although Sky’s Super Sunday fixture isn’t exactly mouthwatering, with Norwich hosting Wigan. Wigan have been faeces recently, and will surely go down, so we are backing Norwich to do the business. In addition, add value to your bet by stipulating that Grant Holt scores at any time. The fat lad has had a wonderful season, and when Norwich win, the big man scores.
£10 on Norwich to win with Holt scoring anytime gets you £30
In Europe, and Real’s march to the title goes on, despite Lionel Messi’s Champions League wizardry. They face Betis this weekend, and given the fact that they have scored ten goals in their last two games against such opponents, must be fancied on the handicap again. Go for broke, but save yourself too with the slightly conservative cover.
£10 on Real to win by more than one goal gets you £23
£10 on Real to win by more than two goals gets you £40
Finally, lets go all germanic, but rather than getting fat and drinking copious amount of full-strength lager (although friends will tell you I’m game for that too), get all Schwarzwaldekirchtorte with some Bundesliga bets. Dortmund are striding on to consecutive titles with Robert Lewandowski doing much of the damage. Make him your goalscorer bet this weekend in true Chopra style.
£10 on Robert Lewandowski anytime goalscorer gets you £18
£10 on Robert Lewandowski first goalscorer gets you £43
