The week is progressing nicely, two of the three tennis selections won, that makes 7 winners from 9 on the blog and closing in on 25 points profit.

There were four football bets on the email service ....


Yeovil quite impressed me in the first leg, they created a number of chances (15), hit the woodwork, enjoyed 55% possession and were denied by two penalties, one in each half.

They need to score two goals tonight, something they have already done 12 times on the road this season, so no forlorn hope.

The visitors can only sit back for so long and will have to push forward at some stage.

Of course, the reverse is true for Forest, who will be happy to keep things quiet, for as long as possible, but there will be space for them on the counter attack.

I expect the game to open up more and more the longer it goes and to become very stretched. There should be goals and I think the quote is excellent.

5 points over 2.25 goals Forest-Yeovil 1.94 asian line. result 1-3 + 4.7 points



Massive game for the hosts, two rounds to go, last home game of the season, playing the Champions and their biggest rivals, knowing that 3 points will earn them promotion.

Strasbourg are the best home team in the division, with a fine 14-4-0 record, only conceding a handful of goals all season.They will want to finish this today and not go to Dijon next week, needing a result.

Metz have nothing to play for, except pride and bragging rights. They have gone on early vacation in recent starts, resting players and losing their last two matches.The visitors will be without key player Francois for sure and it is unclear at the moment, if any others will be rested this evening.

What is without dispute, is that Racing will easily be the more motivated of the two and given their wonderful home record and the fact that they have won the last 3 h2h meetings, scoring 8 goals here, have to be the choice.

5 points Strasbourg -1/2 ball 1.87 asian line. won 2-1 + 4.35 pts


Much talk in recent days that the Ajaccio-Montpellier result has been "agreed", I have no personal knowledge of that. But the match has been removed from many bookmaker's lists and Brest, who sit just outside the relegation zone and only one point ahead of Montpellier, will be very aware of the situation.

They realise that a win tonight is vital if they are to hold on to their narrow advantage. If you have to play such a game away from home, you could hardly ask for a bettter fixture, than a visit to basement club Tours. Long since relegated and booked for bottom spot, with just 3 points from a possible 30 and mentally lying on the beach, the hosts are not going to scare anyone.

Brest have improved and are fighting for survival, they have collected 14 points in their last 10 matches and with a home game to Reims next week to finish the season, have their destiny in their own hands. They have to keep it that way, away win.

4.5 points Brest -1/2 ball 1.88 asian line. won 2-1 + 3.96 pts


As predicted, plenty of goals in Ligue 2 last week, with all matches going "over", not sure it will be quite so gung-ho this evening, but am confident that this fixture will produce a few.

These two have done enough for the season, can relax and put on some entertainment for the fans.

Grenoble have scored and conceded in each of their last 3 at home and have allowed more home goals than any other top 5 team.

Dijon are "over" in 5 of their last 6 and their last 10 starts are averaging 2.8 per game.

History is on our side, with the last 3 h2h meetings producing 3 or more.

5.5 points over 2.25 goals Grenoble-Dijon 1.76 asian line. result 2-1 + 4.18 pts

I have never made any wild claims for the blog, or the email service, for me, this is not a short term venture.

Two losers yesterday, or four winners today, or tomorrow, matter little in the bigger scheme of things. The ONLY target remains long term profits, the blog has delivered that for almost 14 months and believe me, the email service is a much better product that will pay for itself many times over.

Good Luck.
