Bet’s be ‘avin you: Football betting tips for 9-10 November
Every week I tell myself that I should leave the Championship alone, and every week I come crawling back. If you actually staked your money on single bets on the outsider in every game in the division this season, you’d bloody rip it up. Anyway, I’m even going back to Leeds, so a glutton for punishment, and adding Cardiff and Blackburn against as out-of-form Birmingham gives you a treble worth more that 7/1. I’ll take that.
£5 on Cardiff, Blackburn and Leeds gets you £41
I really fancy some first scorers this weekend after a fabulous Wednesday in which I trixied Alan, Fernando Torres and Oscar Cardozo for the sort of profit that made the strippers of city centre Nottingham happy to be alive (well, happy for the cash anyway). With that in mind I’ll opt for three singles and a trixie. And I’ll be annoyed if Fellaini gets the first goal, because it was a toss-up!
£5 on Nikica Jelavic to score the first goal gets you £27.50
£5 on Charlie Austin to score the first goal gets you £25
£5 on Jordan Rhodes to score the first goal gets you £27.50
£5 trixie (£1.25 stake) on the three first scorers gets you a maximum payout of £295
Next up is a simple punt really – Leicester City to beat my Nottingham Forest team. I know don’t bet against your own team yadda yadda, but we have looked slightly suspect recently (though not deserving of the moronic booing of some fans) and odds of approaching evens are mighty generous in the circumstances.
£10 on Leicester City to win gets you £19
Now have £5 left for a single stake, and it is a bet on Friday night’s game. I have it on good authority that George Friend of Middlesbrough has looked very good going forward this season, but has not yet scored. Due to this bookmakers have pushed up the odds, and a played that can be utilised in midfield is odds of 12/1 with Sky Bet to score at anytime. That’s gotta be worth a fiver?
£5 on George Friend to score anytime against Sheffield Wednesday gets you £65
