Bet’s be ‘avin you: Football betting tips for the 14-15 April
Okey cokey, off we go. Firstly, Birmingham City will surely beat Bristol City at home. Brizzle have improved of late to take themselves out of the relegation zone, but wins against Forest and Coventry are slightly different to winning at St Andrews, where Brum have lost once all season. Will combine that with Burnley beating a Coventry side that have slumped again after a recent rejuvenation.
£10 on Birmingham and Burnley gets you £31.50
Second bet takes in the Premier League games from Sunday and Monday, and you have to fancy the top four teams at home to strugglers. In fact, I will be splitting a tenner between two Asian handicap bets in a bid to find a lovely bit of profit. After all, Manchester United have won nine league games in a row, and Arsenal have won eight of their last nine in the league.
£5 on Manchester United and Arsenal by more than one of the Asian handicap gets you £15.12
£5 on Manchester United and Arsenal by more than two of the Asian handicap gets you £33.70
North of the Border it is also cup semi final weekend, and they seem a touch easier to call than those daan sarf. Celtic should do the business over Hearts in their bid for a domestic double, and this will be coupled with a 90 minutes draw between Hibs and Aberdeen. The two sides are separated by just nine points in the league, and with nerves on show it will be tight.
£10 on Celtic to win and Hibs and Aberdeen to draw gets you £49.50
And finally, because it’s that weekend again, a couple of tips for the Grand National for you. Firstly, snap up Giles Cross ASAP for anything near 10/1 you can. Secondly each way bets on According to Pete and Shakalakaboomboom are an idea. If you want to copy me, that is.
£5 on Giles Cross to win the Grand National gets you £65
£2.50 EW on According to Pete to win the Grand National at 33/1
£2.50 EW on Shakalakaboomboom to win the Grand National at 20/1
