Bet’s be ‘avin you: Football betting tips for 24-25 November
A much better weekend last time out. Wouldn’t say that I was sipping back on Cristal all week, but £86 back from the £40 stake is more than steady. In fact, requiring Fulham v Sunderland to go under 2.5 goals for another £36 seemed fairly safe with 0-0 at half-time, but the Mackems decided to click into gear against ten men at exactly the wrong time. Still, a good result.
Have four bets this weekend, the first of which involves Manchester United. United have lost three of their last six games in all competitions, but there is no better tonic than a home game against QPR. Only once this year have United failed to score more than one goal at home and QPR’s defence allowed Southampton to score three last weekend. Pile on the Asian Handicap.
£20 on Manchester United to win by more than two goals gets you £46
A multiple next up. Norwich have been bouncing recently but they are still to win away from home this season, whilst Hull are flying at the top of the Championship. Also backing Boro to continue Bristol City’s miserable run, whilst Yeovil are the value selection at 13/10 to give Carlisle a lengthy wasted journey. Carlisle have one point from their last five league games.
£5 on Everton, Hull, Middlesbrough and Yeovil to win gets you £47
A League Two double next, which is an unusual entity in this column. There just seems too much value in Bradford (2.38) and Chesterfield (2.6) to leave it alone. Bradford are up to fourth in the table, whilst Bristol Rovers have lost six of their last seven games. Chesterfield are hanging around in mid-table, but travel to a Plymouth side woefully out of form with a solitary point in their last seven games.
£10 on Bradford and Chesterfield gets you £62
Finally, plumping for an anytime scorer double. Olivier Giroud has four goals in his last four games, including a double against Fulham and one in the North London Derby last weekend. It finally seems as if the Frenchman has hit the form that his looks deserve. In addition (and in contrast) also gone for David McGoldrick of Coventry. The striker failed to trouble the scoresheet whilst at Nottingham Forest, but has been on fire since moving to the Sky Blues on loan. He has ten goals in as many games.
£5 on David McGoldrick and Olivier Giroud both to score gets you £35
