Our tennis bet won yesterday, but unfortunately St Patrick's could not hold onto their lead.

Looking at blog only selections since December 19th, I have posted 226 selections, 126 have won (55.75%) and produced a profit of 251.77 points, on turnover of 1270.5, a fantastic ROI of 19.82%.

Obviously the bulk of my output is on the email service now, but I will still post selections here where possible. Today I previewed four events on the newsletter and already, before lunch, the first offers fantastic value and can be traded out for a decent profit.

There is a wonderful summer of sport ahead and it is the perfect time to take the plunge and join the service, any subscription now is going to give you full coverage of Euro 2004, in addition to all the regular Predictuwin offerings. Full details can be found on the website

Good Luck with your bets today.

Galway have been a yo-yo side between the top two divisions in recent seasons and after promotion last year, they again look set to struggle. Already bottom of the table, a home defeat to fellow strugglers Cobh Ramblers on Monday in a real six pointer, probably confirmed supporters worst fears and they look to be "up against it "again this evening.

Saints are keen to bounce back from a home defeat to title rivals Bohemians earlier in the week, in a match where we opposed them. They remain a team with potential and are seeking a first title in a decade, last week I wrote about them ....They look a side going places, have a very wealthy new(ish) owner in Garrett Kelleher, who has big plans for the team, despite their lofty league position, three big signings are already planned for the summer transfer window and this will keep everyone on their toes.They are the league's top scorers and there are likely to be goals tonight, the last six meetings have all produced four or more.

Athletic are unbeaten on the road, where they have a 5-1-0 record and a 12-3 goal difference.

Galway have real problems in front of goal and have scored just 8 in 13 starts. Tonight they will be without the suspended Marc McCulloch and the injured Keane, Foley and Robson, skipper John Fitzgerald is a major doubt and will be a game time decision. Even their coach was moved to comment that "we showed little fight" on Monday and given their poor record against the visitors, Saints have not lost in Galway this millenium, winning three of the last four, without conceding a single goal, we have to back the away side.

6 points St Patrick's Athletic -3/4 ball 2.07 asian line.... NOW 1.92 .... WIN OR LOSE .15 BETTER FOR SUBSCRIBERS this is a huge advantage to your bankroll over the long term.

Good Luck.



Two up and coming players here. Cornet has had a fantastic Spring and is very comfortable on clay, she is 19-6 on the surface this year and made the final in Rome after qualifying, but that is a lot of tennis and she has showed signs in her opening two rounds that it might be catching up on her. Having said that, she will have a huge amount of home support and took the Junior title here last year.

Before you get too carried away with that, Radwanska won it a year earlier and is a more battle hardened player in respect to WTA appearances and is very mentally tough. The Polish player looks booked for the top 5, has a great record against top ten players and is 3-0 in WTA Finals, which tells you all you need to know. She is a player we have been tracking on the blog for almost two years and is fulfilling the huge potential she showed as a junior.Radwanska is 13-4 this year on clay, comes here on the back of a win in Istanbul and has yet to drop more than four games in a set at Roland Garros. She is a proven Grand Slam player and will be looking to emulate her quarter final appearance in Australia. I think she is a level above Cornet and circa 1.90 is not going to be available too often for her against a non top ten player, we have to take it.

6 points Radwanska to beat Cornet 1.88 exchanges.

Back later.


Had a good look at Maria Sharapova over the last two days, she is certain to have a very good rest of 2008, but I just cannot see her as a potential winner at Roland Garros.

Her movement is simply not good enough on clay and she is really struggled with the ball toss, particularly on her second serve.

The Russian superstar will have to step up on what she has shown so far, to get involved at the business end of this tournament.

Back shortly.

FRIDAY PLANS .........

Huge day today, I have previewed five matches on the email service and am likely to post one of these on the blog later in the day, maybe two.

Good Luck with your bets .

EURO 2008 ........

Very busy weekend ahead, I am likely to have an average of 4-5 previews per day on the email service and will be starting my look at Euro 2008, with a preview of two markets, including my top outsider for the tournament.

I gave two winners from two selections today and remain in fantastic form, with over 140 points profit in the last 17 days alone!

A $5o unit stake would have won you over $7000, in a little over two weeks. Smaller players could also have done very well indeed, a 4 euro stake , equates to almost 564 euro profit and subscription costs could have been as low as 22 euros for that period.

Really looking to press on from here, over a time of the year, where I consider we have a big advantage over the bookmakers.

Full details of the email service can be found on the website .

You can make payment there using paypal, or any bank credit or debit card. If you wish to use any other payment methods, send me an email using the "contact us" button on the website and I will get back to you .

SPECIAL FRIDAY OFFER Anyone taking out a three month subscription before o6.00 am Saturday, will get an extra month added free, if you have previously registered your details, or participated in a trial/ subscription of any sort, we will add a further month. Therefore, you will recieve 5 months for the price of three, this brings the daily cost down to below £1 per day and offers real value for money. In order to be fair, any existing subscribers can also extend their current subscription at the same terms.

Good Luck.

I have previewed three matches today on the email service, but am unable to cover any of these on the blog. One is about to start and the other two have already been well backed, one has already moved on the asian line by a full 1/4 ball, therefore, the real value has gone in both.

Good Luck with your bets.

Stockport made it to the promised land of Division 1 and fixtures against Leicester City and Leeds United, which you can be sure, was the first thought of their supporters at full time yesterday.

If they can keep most of the side together, although Liam Dickinson impressed again yesterday and is bound to have the agents calling, they could go a long way. County have a very impressive set up and a lot of youngsters pressing for league starts.

That was a big result for subscribers, we backed them at 3.50 outright in the playoffs and it is great to start the week over 16 points up. I have previewed four events today, one was given yesterday and I am confident that we can continue the fantastic run through Euro 2008 and the summer.

If any of you want to join "the fun", full details of the service can be found on the website .

Good Luck with your bets today.

These two Lancashire neighbours have to make the long trip to Wembley on a Bank Holiday Monday, quite why this could not have been moved to Old Trafford is beyond me, but it will be a day to remember for both. I have a lot of time for Rochdale and many Brentford fans considered them the best side to have faced the mighty Bees this season. However, it is dangerous to put too much emphasis on one, or two performances and over the second half of the season, this young and talented County side, have proved themselves worthy of playing at a higher level and I am firmly in their camp.

We are already on them outright and have 3.50 about the odds on favourites, so no need for us to get involved any further. Let's just hope that they can do the business and get the new week off to a winning start. Team news wise, it is advantage County, with Dale missing two key players. The weather in the South East is dire, with torrential rain and high winds, this could make it a bit of a lottery, but Stockport are confident, as any side that has scored in an amazing 25 consecutive matches would be. Here is my original Division 2 playoff preview sent to subscribers early this month .......


County, in almost a mirror image of last season, have sliced through Division 2 in the second half of the season, like a hot knife through butter. The only difference, is that this time round, they have kept it going until the end of the season.

It is not surprising, as ,Jim Gannon's very young, exciting team, have another year under their belts. They have an excellent crop of youthful players, that could take them a very long way, if the agents do not come calling, which of course, they will. For example, in Liam Dickinson, they have a 22yo striker, with an amazing 33 goals from just 57 full league starts, plus half as many substitute appearances. Following on from , an always difficult second season, after signing from a very low level club, he has terrorised defences this season and walked away with the POTY award.

Since Boxing Day, County have registered 17 wins, including a 6-0 home defeat of semi-final opponents Wycombe, a win which kick started their run to the play-offs and which almost earned an automatic promotion slot.

Aside from a very early season, heavy defeat at Darlington, they have collected 13 points, from the other five meetings against their playoff rivals. Over the second half of the season, well supported Stockport, have collected at least 10 points more than their rivals, a whopping 17 more than Darlington, who have been in freefall for many weeks.

6.5 points Stockport 3.50 general quote.

Good Luck.


If you are planning to get involved in the Division 2 playoff final at Wembley, between Stockport County and Rochdale, please be aware of the dire weather in the South East. Where we have driving rain and very high winds, with gusts of 40kmph +.

These are conditions that will probably come as a surprise to the vast number of supporters travelling down from the North West, where the weather is much better.

Hard to comprehend why this final could not have been moved to one of the two big Manchester stadiums, where both are neighbours , a much bigger crowd could have been anticipated and would also have spared fans the "joy" of motorway Bank Holiday travel in the UK.

Good Luck.

STATS ... I work hard, so that you don't have to ....

The email service has shown great profits in the last six weeks, only one 7 day period gave a small loss and overall, subscribers have won over 187 points since April 14th.

No single selection was bigger than 8 points and the average was around 5.5 points. These are fantastic returns, for a ten euro unit stake, you would be looking at a profit of over 1,872 euros. Your subscription costs for this period could have been as low as 54 euros, which would have reduced your clear profit to 1,818 euros.

You must be a fantastically successful punter, if you are bettering those returns, if not, then you owe it to yourself to check out the PREDICTUWIN product .

Good Luck.

MONDAY ........

Very unlucky yesterday, our blog bet in Mexico was a quality selection and Monterrey led 2-0 with 13 minutes to play, but ran out of steam and drew 2-2, conceding an injury time equaliser.

I was very pleased with the email selections all through last week, ok, we didn't make over 100 points profit like the previous seven days, but we were not far away. Oliver Wilson almost hit the jackpot and a 53 point payday,virtually every other selection either won, or was knocking on the door, like Monterrey.

When people look at basic results and there is little wrong with those, the email service has made almost 50 points profit each and every month. They do not take into account the additional information and returns possible, for example, Wilson, who was given at 17.0 traded at odds on in play and you could have secured yourself a huge profit, by mid afternoon.

The newsletter is the best value service on the internet, it is delivered to your inbox every morning and is a quality read, often running to 1500 or more words, all this, for less than $3 per day, even cheaper for anyone taking advantage of one of the special offers.

Details of the service can be found on the website .

Good Luck.

Sunday, May 25, 2008


Miguel Angel Jimenez has edged a stroke clear, Wilson dropped a shot at the 13th and the Spaniard looked set to do likewise, but holed from 12 feet. Wilson held his nerve to par the 14th, so Jimenez leads by one, but as I type, he is facing a difficult bunker shot on 14.

Update 1: Jimenez got up and down from the bunker, Wilson birdied the very difficult 15th, where the Spaniard is in the middle of the fairway.... so all square again !

Update 2: MAJ missed a two foot putt on 15, Wilson leads by one and is on the green in two at the 16th .

Update 3: Wilson parred the 16th , but is in the trees and huge trouble off the tee, at the very long 17th ..... ouch ! MAJ 25 feet from the hole in two at the 16th. Wilson is having to drop a shot and is playing his third from the pathway ! Advantage Jimenez again.

Update 4: Hard to explain, teeing off at the 17th hole, Wilson -12, Jimenez-11 and Karlsson now in contention -10.

Wilson is on the fringe of the par 5 hole in four, the other two seemed to follow Wilson into trouble off the tee, but appear to have got away with it ! Wilson took six, so stands at -11.

MAJ has a 16 foot putt for birdie, Karlsson looks set to struggle for his par.

Update 5: Karlsson got his par and ramains at -10, Jimenez got his par , so teed off at 18, all square with Wilson. Our man gambled off the tee and found trouble again ! He hit a decent recovery shot and has at least given himself a chance.

Karlsson drove a poor tee shot, Jimenez hit a good stroke, Wison has a 20 foot putt for birdie. Advantage MAJ.

Update 6: Wilson makes his par and is in the clubhouse at -11. It is for Jimenez to lose now.

MAJ has now played his approach shot and is off the green , in a fairly difficult position, he needs to get down in two to win. He has fluffed his shot and is still off the green ! He is down in two from there, so finshed -11, Karlsson had a putt to join them, but missed,we have a playoff !!!!!

Update 7: Sudden death playoff, Wilson and Jimenez will play the 18th hole again. We have landed the place part of the bet and our 17.0 selection can be layed at short odds on the exchanges, if you are so inclined ! He is currently 2.24 on Betfair and has traded odds on. They are playing for a £200k difference in prize money, almost as much as subscribers !

Update 8: Wilson has driven well and is on the fairway in perfect position, MAJ has hit an identical tee shot. OW is in the green side bunker in two. MAJ is on the fringe of the green, advantage, not for the first time today, to the Spaniard.

Wilson has played out to within 12 feet. MAJ has gone even further past and has a 14-15 footer.

Jimenez misses and Wilson has a putt to win ! It lipped out ! That was a real opportunity .

They have to play 18 again !

Update 9: Much better drive from MAJ, he is on the fairway and Wilson is in the rough, on the wrong side of the course.

Great shot from Jimenez, on the green, albeit a long way from the hole. Wilson has played up and is looking to get down in two from some way shy of the green.

He has a very similar putt left that he missed last time round, hopefully he has learnt a little. MAJ has played to within two feet.

Wilson missed and Jimenez is champion........ so near to a monster payout, but a lot of fun for our money !

Good Luck.

Good Luck.


Wilson and Jimenez still all square after 12 holes, they are now three clear of "the field", the place part of our wager looks secure, but we want the biggie !

Exciting times !




We were a little unlucky not to collect on Monterrey in the first leg, they raced into an early lead, but were afterwards forced to play 70 minutes with ten men, eventually conceding a late equaliser. So, they come here tied at 1-1, knowing that another draw will see them eliminated, by virtue of Santos' higher league placing. Therefore a win and only a win, will see them progress, I discussed in midweek their goalscoring form and vibrant attacking options and they are set to "go for it "this evening, naming a three man strike force. At big odds,we can certainly try a little on the away win, remember, they have already scored 4 away at number one ranked Guadalajara.

3.5 points Monterrey -1/2 ball 4.0 general quote.

Good Luck.


Oliver Wilson still holding a share of the lead with Jiminez at Wentworth and they have drawn two clear of "the pack". The Spaniard has had all the luck going so far and I am hoping that this will balance out over 18 holes.
Leaders are just completing the front nine holes.

Good Luck.


A lot of golf to be played yet, but Oliver Wilson, given yesterday to subscibers at 17.0 has just taken a share of the lead in the BMW at Wentworth, after seven holes. Starting four strokes off the lead he has played like a dream so far and would be leading on his own, if not for a hole in one, from Jiminez. Fingers crossed !


Congratulations to Hull City who wake up this morning a Premiership team, which must be a fantastic feeling, not least for their accountants. Michael Turner didn't score but was certainly a match winner, blocking what looked a certain equaliser, yet another in a long list of fine players who left Brentford far too cheaply, he said bitterly.

For anyone planning to get involved in the final round of the BMW PGA Championship from Wentworth, the rain has arrived in the south-east, a lot fell overnight and thunder storms are not out of the question this afternoon. If the rain gets into the course, it will play very long and big hitters will be favoured, with the par 5's completely out of reach in two shots, for all but the longest on tour.

I have previewed six events on the email service today, circa 1500 words and seven selections, although one was given a couple of weeks ago. Undecided at the moment about what to post on the blog, anybody interested in receiving the daily newsletter, can find full details on the website , or are welcome to email me with any questions.

Good Luck with your bets today.

Let's be certain about one thing, there is a huge gulf in class between these two sides, far more than a cursory glance at the league tables might tell us, they are also separated by over 100 years of history and tradition.

However, one team ,Rangers, are out on their feet, having played nine vital matches in 25 days and this is their fourth, since last saturday. That would not be an over riding concern, if that had not lost both the SPL and the UEFA Cup, together with the added pressure that the off the pitch trouble in Manchester, brought with it. They are both physically and mentally running on empty.

This is a dream for QOTS, who have finished the season exceptionally strongly, playing as well as any side in Division 1. From one extreme to the other, they have not played at all for 28 days ! Which is not ideal either.

So, we have one exhausted side, meeting another, who are likely to be fired up, but rusty. It might take a while for this one to get going and I see huge value in the half time draw.

4.5 points half time draw 2.80 + .... 3.0 in places.




I have to side with the Tigers, who are certainly the more offensive minded of these two and have the big time players, who are likely to thrive in the atmosphere.

In Nicky Barmby, they have a player who has done it all before and who comes into the final in fantastic form. He, along with Caleb Folan, the supremely gifted Fraizer Campbell, on loan from Manchester United and the veteran Dean Windass, give them almost unlimited attacking options. The evergreen Windass has turned into a dream professional and is really looking after the youngsters in the side and also himself, when I heard him on a radio phone in earlier this week, he was already in bed at 9pm and that six days before the game, on a rest day ! He is a boyhood fan of Hull, as are his entire family and this means everything to him.

Former Brentford players have a fantastic record in this playoff final and in Michael Turner, Hull have a former Bee, the classy Turner is a very composed central defender and has always been destined to play at a very high level. He is excellent in the air and will be sent forward for free kicks and corners, he has scored four times in the last seven weeks and must be worth a small interst in the anytime scorer market at huge odds.

Bristol have had a fantastic season, but to my mind are a little below the other playoff sides and have really ridden their luck at times.You can argue about this, but Hull is said to be the biggest city in europe, that has never hosted top flight football, they can put that right today, in a match worth a conservative £60m to the winner.

5.5 points Hull -1/4 ball 2.0 asian line.

0.5 points Turner to score anytime 11.0 + .... 15.00 in places

Good Luck.


A quick look back to yesterday, unfortunately, Turkey could not hold on to their point, conceding a late goal to Italy, but reduced to nine men, it was never going to be easy !

My two other email selections for Friday both won, so although subscribers made a profit, it could have been a really good day.

I am excited about today's action and have just completed the newsletter. Where I previewed five events and gave seven selections, including one at 15.0 and another @17.0, it would be fantastic if one of those could oblige, after last week's 81.0 winner, which makes these two sound short priced !
My strongest selection is for one of today's cup finals and has been ranked at 7.5 points, which long term readers know, is a very confident pick.

Hopefully, I will be able to post something on here later in the day, but much depends on how the market reacts between now and then.

Details of the email service can be found on the website and anyone that subscribes before 16.00 cet, will be in time to receive a free copy of today's newsletter.

Good Luck with your bets today.

I have put a brief preview for one of this evening's matches on the blog section of the website, where you can also read details of the email service .

Tomorrow looks like one of the more interesting betting day's of 2008, so please check back.

Good Luck.

FRIDAY UPDATE ..........

Very exciting weekend ahead , with three day's of golf from the Volvo PGA Golf at Wentworth, the start of the French Open tennis from Roland Garros, NBA playoffs from across the pond. Football wise we have domestic cup finals in France, Italy and Scotland, playoff deciders in England, with some fantastic match ups and key rounds in Serie B and Segunda, to say nothing of a number of friendly internationals.

Likely to get expensive, as I will probably be looking at most of these !Including, what looks set to be an eight point selection.

I have given three wagers on the email service today and might post one on the blog later in the day.

Good Luck.

This is my 2502 nd post !

How did that happen, my counter was 2499 yesterday before I put the Champions League post online and now it tells me that this is number 2502 !

Anyhow, regardless, it is a lot of posts and a heck of a lot of words. I am a little peeved by yesterday, I wanted that post (the 2500th) to be a winner and Chelsea had chances, after United dominated for the opening 30 minutes, the Blues took control and hit the woodwork twice after the break, to say nothing of the penalty shootout. The drama is great of course, but I have a terrible record in penalty deciders and probably one in ten have gone my way over the years, hardly surprising as an englishman ! We just don't win shootouts ! Chelsea could have eased home by having a variety of wigs and disguises to enable Ballack, the only German on the pitch to take all of their's.

My best bet of the day, which is the one I wanted to post online, of course eased home, given to subscribers at 1.88 they were backed down to sub 1.70 and were 3-0 up fairly early in the first half. The truth is that they will always get the cream, all that I can post on here, is a few of the leftovers.

Details of the email service can be found on

Good Luck with your bets today.

Note to subscribers.... the email will be a little late today, but will still be with you before midday as always, I am previewing three matches, including one very strong selection, just awaiting confirmation of some team news.

Wednesday, May 21, 2008

This is my 2500th post on the blog...............

..... at such a milestone, I really wanted to put my best bet of the day online, but it has been completely backed off the boards through the day and all the real value has now gone, so I will have to look elsewhere.

Details of the email service can be found on , the newsletter that has made over well over 130 points for subscribers in the last eight days alone !

Therefore, I will take a brief look at the big game of the day, at least on this side of the Atlantic.



Hard to see this not being close, these two are very evenly matched, but I have just had the feeling that this would be Chelsea's year to join the really big league, for some time and feel that they will do enough to take the trophy.

The match will probably be decided in midfield where the Londoner's have an edge, Ballack has hit form at exactly the right time and he is desperate to get a winner's medal, after missing out in his last final. Alongside him Lampard is incredibly motivated, I heard talk that along with John Terry, the pair are totally obsessed with winning the trophy and that this goes far beyond any normal motivation.

Ronaldo has still to impress in the very biggest games and that must now, be getting to him. Ashley Cole's injury doesn't look too bad and he is set to start, he has a fantastic record against the Portugese superstar and this will be one of the key match ups of the night.

Chelsea have more impact players on the bench that they can call upon if things are not going well. United's recent attitude has worried me somewhat, it has been very negative, compared to their normal standards. In the end, they were a little fortunate not to blow the Premiership and were favoured by some very strange decisions from the referee in the Wigan game.

Chelsea have only lost two of their last 12 meetings with United and look decent value to give their owner what he craves.

5.5 points Chelsea to win the cup 2.18 Betfair. 2.16 Pinnacle ... 2.10 + general.

Good Luck.


It is finally here, Manchester United, 50 years after the Munich air crash, facing the Russian owned Chelski in Moscow, you could not have written a more perfect final, unless of course you are Italian or Spanish.

We have the biggest club game in the world and despite the huge influx of foreign players into the Premiership, there are likely to be nine english starters on the pitch. Yet, somehow, we were unable to qualify for Euro 2008, something is very wrong at the FA and hopefully, Mr Capello, will put things right.

Latest report is that Ashley Cole's injury is not as bad as first reported and that he will start. Avram Grant ctitics are already asking why Chelsea were playing a full out practice match on the eve of the biggest match in the club's history.

I am previewing three matches on the email service today and am hopeful of carrying one on the blog later today, another profit for subscribers yesterday and I remain on top form.

Good Luck.

Tuesday, May 20, 2008


I told you yesterday that I had given two email selections for a "quiet" Monday's sporting action, both got ahead early and coasted to very easy wins. My seven point selection was terrific value at 2.04.

That's an incredible 20 winners from 27 email selections in the last 7 days, 130.85 points profit, which, means that for a $20 unit stake, you could have won a cool $2617 since last Tuesday morning, all with single wagers, no multiples. No individual bet was bigger than 8 points and only one of those, another selection for 7 points, all others were 6.5 points or much less. To receive all this information, anybody taking advantage of the recent special offer, would have paid $13.68 for the last week, which of course, is terrible value, as it brings the clear profit all the way down to $2603.32 !

If those stakes are a bit too dizzy for your bankroll, how about 4 euros ? Your average wager would have been around 22 euros and your profit 523.4 euros.

I am again looking at previewing two events today and the week(s) ahead look incredible, with another 8 point selection lined up for the Bank Holiday weekend.

Many of you have been reading my blog for a very long time and know that it has always supplied quality content, but actual previews are now going to be very limited. There were just four last week, subscribers were sent 28 ! That is what they pay for, it is time consuming work and WILL make a profit over the long term, it is also a pretty good read. This week, there are likely to be around 22-24 previews, it is unlikely that there will be more than 2-3 on the blog, if you are considering taking the plunge, now is the time to jump !
Full details can be found on the website , it also contains a frequently asked questions section. I am keen to get as many of you on board as possible, especially those that have been with me since the start and can still offer deals to you guys, on extended subscriptions, just send me an email via the "contact us" button on the website.
Good Luck with your bets today.

Monday, May 19, 2008


What a week ! Over 100 points profit on the email service, readers who took advantage of the special offer the previous week, have received incredible value.

With a ten euro unit stake, they would have won well over 1,000 euros last week alone, for a service that they have paid just 1.30 euros per day for !

Today I have previewed two games on the newsletter, including a very confident 7 point (which is rare) selection.

Full details of the service can be found on the website

Good Luck.

Atletico have little to play for, having already secured a Champions League spot, by virtue of their superior h2h record over Seville. They will be fielding a severely weakened team this afternoon, the back four will hardly know each other, Maxi Rodriguez has already been allowed to return home, Camacho is suspended and Aguero is set to be rested.

Hosts will be very happy to see the back of this season and how ! So much has gone wrong, it is hard to believe , in a campaign which promised so much. They will want to sign off with a win and to give goalkeper Canizares, who makes his final start, after a decade at the club, a great send off. Home win.

6 points Valencia -1/4 ball 2.14 asian line.... NOW 2.06.

Good Luck.


I will have a post online shortly before the start of the Spanish matches.

Good Luck.


Just finished the newsletter, where I have previewed four matches today, all are very sound selections, two, especially strong, at odds of 3.65 and 2.14.

I gave nine selections on the email service yesterday, eight won at odds of 1.85, 1.85, 2.06, 2.21, 2.16, 2.075, 2.75 and 81.0 ! The last three winners were sent out 28 hours before kickoff, the other big staked selection ( 2.16), over two days in advance. No last minute waiting around, or mad scramble to get on, for subscribers.

To join the email service....... you can find full details on .

Back later.

LIGUE 1 ....


I talked a little yesterday ( on the email service) about the likelyhood of goals in the Ligue 2 games, where there was nothing to play for. They obliged big time with 6 of the 7 going over, 5 of them with 5 or more goals.

Hopefully, we will see something similar this evening and I have selected two likely contenders.

Metz are relegated, but are sure to want to go out with a bang, in front of their own fans, they have conceded in theIR last 12 on home soil.

Le Mans have scored and conceded in 6 of their last 9 and coach Rudi Garcia has told them to go out and enjoy them selves.

6 points Metz-Le Mans over 2.25 goals 1.85 asian line.

I would not have a problem taking the 2.5 line here at bigger odds, or even 3.5 lines for small "fun" money.

Could it be? Yes, it could....

Could it be? Yes, it could.

Something's coming, something good, If I can wait!

Something's coming, I don't know what it is, But it is Gonna be great!

Apologies, my daughters are huge musical fans especially West Side Story. This has been coming for sometime and today, it arrived ! My preview of the Sampdoria - Juventus match, sent to subscribers earlier this week, was perfection, or as close as it is possible to get. I have reproduced it below in full, it produced over sixty points profit on a single match.

I am extremely pleased with it, especially for subcribers who stuck with me through a recent rough spell, their loyalty has been royally rewarded and they deserve it. I have only ever claimed to be seeking long term returns and not short term gains, we are here for the long haul. But, having said that, I am really going to cane the bookmakers over the next few months.

Good Luck.





I have three bets for this match, but make no excuses as, win or lose, they all offer fantastic value.This has been moved to saturday and, live on television, hopes will be high for an entertaining affair and I am certain, that it will be.

Two of Juve's favourite sons David Trezequet and Del Piero, along with Boriello of Genoa, are all level on 19 goals, in the race to become top scorer in Serie A. It is normal, in such matches, when clubs have no bigger motivation, for them to do what they can to get their players this prestigeous award. In Del Piero's case, they will bust a gut !

Trezequet has already won this once before and Del Piero, who is loved by all at the club, has not. I feel that the game will be set up/ played to give him every opportunity to score a couple of goals and put the pressure on Boriello, to do the same at Atalanta on Sunday.

Del Piero has been playing things down, but reading between the lines, this is something that he really wants. Surely this will be a high scoring affair and Sampdoria will want to get involved, the over 2.5 goals has been well backed in Italy this week and the asian line is likely to tumble later today.

I have no qualms about taking over three goals there, as I see almost no downside to the wager.Bet 365 have not done their homework here and offer silly prices, other companies might follow suit later in the day, but be quick, as odds will not last long.

Juve have some defensive problems and the scoreline here could go very high 3-3. 4-4, 4-3 something similar, is not out of the question.

8 points Del Piero to score anytime 2.75 Bet 365.... 2.10 + is acceptable.

6 points over 3 goals asian line 2.01 ......... 2.075 Bet 365

0.5 point 3-3 correct score 67.0 general quote 81.0 in places.


...... to work out what my third and 8 point bet was on the Juventus game, it was Del Piero to score at anytime @ 2.75, this was one of the bets of the season and took just six minutes to oblige.

Good Luck.

SERIE A .......... The tough life of a professional footballer, low pay and no female company ....

I have reproduced a post below, sent to subscribers earlier this week, it has been necessary to edit it somewhat and also to remove one selection, but all remaining content is still relevant.

We have a really fantastic day in prospect , with so much to play for at the top and bottom of Ligue 1 and the Bundesliga. Plus the FA Cup final and the conclusion of the Division 2 playoff semi-finals.

The playoffs have been compulsive viewing so far and Edgeley Park will not be for the faint hearted this evening, where Wycombe boss, Paul Lambert, who has made some ill judged comments this week, will be in for a very hot reception, from a sell out crowd. I have a lot of time for County fans, who always travel in numbers, regardless of how they team is playing and retain their sense of humour, which is not always easy. Personally, I hope that they progress.

Just a quick reminder, ignore what you might see in some league tables, or have read in previews, there are no more UEFA Cup spots left to play for in Italy, these have already gone to Sampdoria and Udinese, who no longer have anything to play for this weekend.

Good Luck with all your bets today.


Guingamp won very comfortably last night, ahead inside 3 minutes, they were 3 up at the break and raced into a 5-0 lead, within the hour. If only it was always so easy, but then, where would the fun be ?

To be honest, I have been on fire the last four days, with my only loser being a side given at 2.10, backed down to sub 1.80, who raced into a two goal lead, before having a man sent off, eventually drawing 2-2 !

Very exciting day for subscribers to the email service, where I have previewed eight events, across two sports and four european countries. We have our biggest football bet for some considerable time and have taken 2.75 there, about a wager, I believe to be odds on to collect.

Back shortly.

TGIF ..........

Below are two bets given this morning on the email service, the tennis match is tied at 2-2 in the third set, so will obviously not be included on here in blog figures, it is just to give you a sample of the newsletter quality. The football bet is still available, at only slightly shorter odds.



The atmosphere at Troyes must be grim, they have simply thrown away promotion, when they could have coasted over the finishing line. They showed little fight last week at home to Sedan and have collected just 4 points from a possible 30, more like basement club form ! It would take a very brave, or foolish person to back them against anyone at present and it will certainly not be me.Most teams like to win their final home start and send their supporters off for the summer, with the "feelgood" factor. If Guingamp put in minimal effort this evening, they are likely to collect the win.

5.5 points Guingamp -1/4 ball 2.09 asian line.




Venus is capable on clay, but has played very little on the european circuit in recent years. However, she does boast a 17-3 record in Rome and looks in decent shape, following a 7-5 6-2 win over Vera Zvonareva yesterday. Jankovic is very comfortable on the surface and must be eyeing up a big run at Roland Garrros, especially with Justine Henin, now out of the equation. She is defending champion here, where she took the title without dropping a set. She walloped Maria Kirilenko 1&1 yesterday and is 13-4 in Rome.The young Serbian should win this and at 1.80 would be my choice. Having said that, their h2h is tied at 3-3, with Jelena leading 2-1 on clay, all went the distance, as have the last 5 meetings, including one here in 2006, which Venus won. Therefore, I see better value in this going the distance, combined odds offer 2.375, which is more than fair and I will stake higher on the younger player, eventually running out the victor.

3.5 points Jankovic to win 2-1 sets 4.30 exchanges

2.5 points Williams 2-1 sets 5.0 general quote.

Good Luck.

ROTATION POLICY .......... Giving everyone a game ........

To rotate, or not to rotate, what is best, a settled side or keeping the squad fresh ?

Much (too much) has been written about the benefits or otherwise, of squad rotation in the Premiership, but let's take a quick look at how it has worked out in the lower leagues.

In the Championship, relegated Leicester used far more players than any other side, followed by Southampton, who managed to avoid a similar fate on the final day of the season. Playoff finalists Bristol City used fewest, followed by FA Cup heroes Cardiff.

In League 2, it was something of a mixed bag at the very top, where Darlington (6th) and Wrexham (last) , utilized 41 players, followed by Accrington (17th) and Macclesfield (19th). So that might be more of a case of Darlington being the exception that proves the rule. Front runners MK Dons and Peterborough, despite having big squads, were "mid table".

It is in Division 1 where the stats are really eyecatching. More players were used here than in the other two divisions and the top six, in order ,cue drumroll, are Millwall, Gillingham, Port Vale, Yeovil, Bournemouth and Crewe, all finished in the bottom eight. Three were relegated and Crewe only avoided dropping out , on the final day of the season.

At the other end of the table, promoted Swansea and Nottingham Forest, along with playoff contenders Doncaster, were all in the bottom five for players used, despite having superior resources to almost every other club at this level.

It seems clear, that whether through choice , or necessity, the fewer players used, the better...... "tinklers" beware .............if it ain't broke, don't fix it !

Good Luck.


Congratulations to Leeds for making the play-off final, this was a huge game for me and my subscribers and they now await the winner of tonight's match between Doncaster Rovers and Southend United.

A lot will be decided this weekend across europe and I am going to be heavily involved. Just putting the finishing touches to today's email and it looks like seven previews, spread over two days, including an eight point selection (very rare) at odds of 2.75 !

I do not want to waste anybody's time, it might be possible for me to post a selection on the blog late today, but I am not certain at the moment. However, I will definitely have news of some sort online later.

Good luck with your chosen bets.

THURSDAY PLANS ..............

Updated blog stats following Zenit's win, since December 19th I have given 215 bets, 120 have won(55.81%) and produced 203.63 points profit, on a turnover of 1209.5 points, a ROI of 16.84%.

Those are very good numbers and do not include the outright bets on Manchester United 2.375, Swansea 11.0 and MK Dons 9.0 to win their respective leagues, amongst others.

I have, in the end , only previewed three matches on the email service today and, for various reasons it is simply not possible to post any of them on the blog . As indicated last week, I will have to be very selective about what I blog in future and previews on here, are likely to be minimal. I am thankful that many of you took advantage of last week's special offer to join the service and also,for the positive feedback.

As always, full details of the service, including a question and answer section, can be found on the website and, if any long term readers/ former subscribers want to send me an email via the "contact us" button on the site, I will do my best to sign them up at the lowest rate possible.

Good Luck.


Zenit proved worthy winners of the UEFA Cup and following on from CSKA's victory in the same competition, it is surely only a matter of time before one of Russia's big clubs, makes a run at the Champions League. I accept that they have a mountain to climb with their summer season and it would almost certainly mean writing off one, if not two domestic campaigns, but surely it will happen sooner rather than later. Money talks in big time soccer and the Russians have an abundance ! Anyway, congratulations to Zenit and those of us that took the 21.0 available just six weeks ago.....

Good Luck.

Wednesday, May 14, 2008


Marat Safin won fairly comfortably for subscribers this morning, which got the day off to a great start. I am not always keen on early selections, as they seem to dictate what follows, but when they win, it is fine !

It is not possible to post anything selection wise on the blog this afternoon, many of you already have an interest in the cup final and the other remaining preview I have to restrict to members, as it is likely to have some bearing on bets later in the week.

Thursday looks extremely busy, with four possible five selections on the newsletter, which will give me more options to post something on the blog.

Good Luck with your bets today.

WEDNESDAY ..........

I have previewed three events on the email service today, two football and one tennis match, where we have some significant injury news about a top ranked player.

Blog wise we have a big day, as we have already secured a 16 point profit on the UEFA Cup final, having backed Zenit at circa 21.0 and covered on Rangers last week. However, we still have an extra 11.5 points up for grabs if the Russian champions take the trophy home, so plenty of excitement ahead.

Rangers supporters have, as always, travelled in huge numbers, despite an official ticket allocation of just 13,000, in a crowd of 43,000, well over 100,000 fans are expected in Manchester today. Judging by the latest reports, even that number might be a little conservative !

Big screens have been put up in the city centre and let's just say that it will be very lively in Manchester this evening !

Elsewhere, Hull and Watford meet to decide who will play Bristol City at Wembley, in a match that is set to worth £60m + to the winner. What an amazing turnaround for Hull, exactly five years ago, they had just finished yet another season in the lower reaches of Division 2, winning just 14 of 46 starts and the Premiership was a distant and unrealistic dream, now, it is just 135 minutes away. Apparently, Hull is the biggest city in Europe never to have had a team playing top flight football. Maybe they will put that right this season. Actually, I have a very strong view on the match tonight and am hoping to be able to post it online later.

Good Luck.

The schedule could not have drawn up a more dramatic end to the season in Serie A, with the four sides battling for the Scudetto and fighting to avoid relegation, meeting each other.

The criteria for separating teams that finish level on points, is as follows ....

1) Head to head record .... away goals do not count double.
2) Goal difference in h2h matches.
3) Overall goal difference.

Remaining fixtures ....

At the top of the table, Inter hold a one point lead and will be champions with a win, or, by Roma failing to beat Catania. This, by virtue of Inter collecting four points from their two league meetings.

Parma trail Catania by two points and only have one way to survive, they must beat Inter and hope that Roma win. The two strugglers cannot be separated h2h wise, following two draws, but Catania have a superior goal difference.

They is no real possibility of any "collusion" and the only way for both teams playing each other to get their desired outcome, is if Parma and Inter draw, which would leave Catania safe and Roma champions with a win. Therefore ,the draw in Parma,has absolutely no value at all, to either side and the bookmakers that originally priced this outcome at circa 3.40 , have simply not done their homework . Come kick off, the stalemate should be available at 5.50 + and should be avoided. I suppose, if Catania have a big lead late in the game, the other match could fizzle out, but it is hard to see that happening.

If you must get involved in the "draw", at least take it with a small double on the Catania-Catania double result, which would provide a bumper payout.

It will be a fantastic day's viewing and nerves are sure to play a big part, with Fiorentina and Milan both still hoping to claim the remaining Champions League spot, we have the most intriguing final day imaginable.

Stay tuned.

I have previewed three matches on the email service today, all of which are live on television, but am unlikely to post any of them on the blog .

Monday, May 12, 2008


After a busy weekend on the blog, the stats since December 19th are 215 bets, 120 winners (55.81%) ,which have produced 192.13 points profit, on turnover of 1209.5 points, a ROI of 15.89%.

In addition, there have been other winners, hinted, yet not suggested as bets, plus the huge returns on the outright winners, of the English domestic football leagues, none of which are included in the above totals.

I previewed four matches on the email service today, one has already started and the three others have all been heavily gambled on, therefore, I will not be posting anything today. The Scandinavian leagues are now in full swing and we can expect to do very well there over the summer. Having done business in Sweden for many years, I have a lot of good contacts in that part of the world. Rather than things easing off, for me, we are now entering the most exciting and busy period of the year, especially with Euro 2008 fast approaching.

As always, if you want to join the email service and receive the newsletter delivered directly to your inbox every morning, you can find all the details on the website .

Good luck with your bets today.

LA LIGA ........


Home side have nothing to play for and can bask in the knowledge that they have had a fine season. They blew a two goal lead at Getafe in midweek and have lost several games recently against relegation threatened teams, who have shown more motivation. Their coach seems set to takeover at Valencia and he will be without the suspended Garcia and Corona.

Huelva are desperate for a result, they are in the final and sole remaining relegation place and face a "six pointer" with Valladolid next weekend, they will want to ensure that, regardless of results elsewhere today, survival remains in their own hands, They were very unlucky to lose to Villarreal in midweek, in a game that they dominated. I feel that they will not lose against a side that average only one goal per home game and that, reading between the lines, are already, at least mentally, on a beach somewhere.

6.5 points Recreativo 1.98 level ball asian line.

Good Luck.

ENGLAND .........


Final day in the Premiership and much still to play for, we are involved with a couple of outright bets on Manchester United, but I am happy to let them ride, playing a Wigan side managed by a former United star and with two of their key players set to join United in the summer ! Funny how Sir Alex is always interested in players just before they play his team !

Prize money for finishing bottom of the Premiership is £30m, each extra place is worth £720,000, so Boro could earn over £2.1m by defeating City today. Most teams like to win their final home start and send their supporters off happy and ready to renew their season ticket. I fancy them to beat a City side, who will be eager not to pick up any cards, as they are set to qualify for Europe, through the "Fair Play" league and are also missing a number of key players.

The other two fixtures are pretty much friendlies, although Villa will claim they are still seeking a euro spot and I expect them both to be open encounters and be "over". Rather than take short quotes for the 2.5 line, I am going to opt for the "3" goal line and the bigger odds. Over the last ten matches United's games have averaged 3.0 goals, Villa's 3.3, they have scored 17 in their last five, Spurs are 3.10 over their last ten and Pool 2.70. Surely all will go for it today and these should be fun to watch.

5.5 points Middlesbrough -1/2. ball 2.01 asian line
5 points WHU-Villa over 3 goals 2.28 asian line
5 points Spurs-Liverpool over 3 goals 2.29 asian line.

Good Luck.

SERIE A ........


Hosts probably know that 4th spot is now beyond them, Milan are unlikely to slip up at home to Udinese and if word comes through that they are ahead at Napoli to, for which they are quoted as low as 1.30, then motivation will slip. They are already tired after a long season, during which they put too much effort into a UEFA Cup campaign. Mutu and Pasqual are suspended and several others, including Vieri injured.

Parma are in the final relegation place and host Inter, which might turn out to be a good fixture ,on the final day of the season. However, they cannot afford to lose today and despite their failure to win on the road all season, look a MASSIVE prize to do so this afternoon.

5.5 points Parma +1/2 ball 2.09 asian line
1.5 points Parma -1/2 ball 5.0 general quote.

Good Luck.


I have plenty to cover today and will be posting several bets on here, there will be an Italian post just before the Serie A games kick off and something similar for Spain and before the Premiership matches commence, but first ......

We have a long term handicap bet on Blackburn in the Premiership handicap list. Currently, the table looks like this ....

ARSENAL 92 pts
EVERTON 90 pts

Unfortunately, "we" have a tough game at Biringham who are fighting for survival. I want to ensure at least a small profit and the only way that we can lose at least the place part of this bet, is, if the other four sides win, well, we are already involved in the City game, so I will pass on that here, but we can take a small treble on the other three and tie up a profit. Obviously this is ONLY suggested if you have taken the handicap selection.

0.75 treble Arsenal /Portsmouth /Everton circa 1.91-3.10- 1.80 around odds of 10.66.

Here is the original post .....

Spent a long time looking at the handicap list and like the look of Mark Hughes' Blackburn Rovers.They have no shortage of pace and goals up front with Roque Santa Cruz joining Benni McCarthy and Jason Roberts, with David Bentley and Morten Gamst Pedersen just behind, they will be a match for all but the very best. They were quite adventurous on the road last year, only Bolton outside the top 4 had more wins, if they can win a few more at Ewood Park, they should improve on last years 10th spot. Maybe a repeat of 2005's 6th place is possible and that should take them close on the handicap, where they receive a 34 points start. Ladbrokes looks the place to go, as they give fewer points to the teams I see as potential dangers.

If that is not available to you,or makes limited appeal, they can be backed at 6.0 for a top 6 spot with Bet 365/ Ladbrokes and Paddy Power, amongst others.

2 points each way Blackburn Rovers +34 points handicap 16.0 1/5 odds 1234 Ladbrokes.

Saturday, May 10, 2008



Hosts have very little to play for, they are booked for a lower midtable finish and have struggled at home recently, saving their best for road games. This is last chance saloon for Bologna, following their recent defeat to Albinoleffe, who are currently, in what appears to be, the sole remaining automatic promotion spot. Leffe go to Lecce , who are the other team in contention for a top two finish, so this is a real opportunity for Bologna and they can afford no further slip ups.

6 points Bologna -1/2 ball 1.60 general quote .

Good luck.



Again, if you look at the Division 2 playoff preview, you will see how Darlington's form has tailed off in the second half of the season. Brentford supporters rated Rochdale the best side to visit Griffin Park this season and that has been borne out by recent form. Dale have lost just once in twelve, are very well suited by playing away from home and in Keith Hill have a boss going places. They are unbeaten in four h2h meetings with their hosts, including a 5-0 win here last season, some 3000 supporters are expected to travel up for the game and they can go home happy.

3.5 points Rochdale level ball 2.25 asian line.

Good Luck.

SATURDAY PLANS ....... and a quick look back at yesterday

One winner and one stake returned yesterday, from two selections on the email service. We were very unlucky not to get the double, as Derry City, our draw no bet selection, were the victims of a hotly disputed penalty and should have claimed the win. Never mind, still a nice day's business.

Today, has got a little crazy and I have previewed NINE matches, four from the UK and five across mainland europe, stakes wise, most are very small, but I have put up one monster, seven point selection, which is, obviously, my strongest stance of the day by far.

I will post two of these on the blog later today, so please check back.

Time is running out if any of you want to take advantage of the special newsletter offer, which is detailed in an earlier post, five months for the price of three, is real value and expires at midnight on sunday. Further information can be found on the website .

Good luck with your bets today.

Friday, May 09, 2008


Nothing on the blog today, I wrote two previews on the email service, one has been smashed into on the asian line, given @ 2.02 .... now trading around 1.76 , so it is impossible to give that one now, in any case.

Will try to post something tomorrow, so please check back.

Thursday, May 08, 2008


Both of today's football selections on the email service won by two goal margins, the other two will not be decided until the weekend, so a pretty good day.

I have just sent out my play-off preview to subscribers, where I looked at the three domestic leagues, from which we had such great success with our pre season ante-post bets. These get underway tomorrow night and I will send a free copy to anyone joining the service over the coming days.

This, in addition to the special offer detailed a few posts below, make it the perfect time to take the plunge and sign up, details are on .

Good Luck.


Today's four email selections will have to be kept to subscribers, so , nothing on the blog today.

Good Luck with your bets !

Wednesday, May 07, 2008


I called the Rangers game correctly and hopefully, a few of you took advantage of a very nice priced winner. That makes 117 winners from 208 blog selections (56.25%), since just before Christmas, 195.31 points profit on a turnover of 1171, a ROI of 16.68%.

I am busy writing my previews of the domestic playoffs and am excited by and confident in, my selections, this is a good time to join the subscription service, especially with the current special offer.

Full details can be found on the website .


I will shortly have a post on the blog section of the website , it is my smallest staked bet of the day, but very nice odds and a wager that I am very keen on.

Good Luck.


Huge day across Europe and I have previewed five matches on the email service, including fixtures from Scotland, France and Spain. I will do my best to carry one of these on the blog later in the day.

We have the post season action fast approaching in England and I will be previewing the outright markets, where we have such unbelievable success this season, in tomorrow's newsletter.

The line up looks like this ...




Some juicy looking matches in prospect there !

Good Luck.

A FAVOUR TO ASK ...........

It is quite an undertaking, but can I ask all of you to read the last four posts on here carefully.

I want as many of you as possible, to take advantage of the following offer. Anyone that takes out a subscription to the email service this week, that's before midnight UK time on Sunday, will receive a free bonus. One month subscribers will receive an additional two weeks, if taking out a three month plan, a fantastic extra two months will be added.

To be fair to all, this offer is also available to any existing subscribers, wishing to renew, or to add to current subscriptions. This means that you could receive the daily newsletter for as little as 98p, or under $2 per day, which is unbelievable value.

Further details can be found on the website, most questions can be answered in the "frequently asked questions" section, which is under "information or links" and you can send me an email via the "contact us" button, regarding alternative payment options like Moneybookers or bank transfer, or with any other queries.

I have a partner, who organised the website and he is pushing me to completely stop the blog posts, that is not really what I want to do, but I will have to continue to reduce the output on here. The only way to receive all the selections is to subscribe to the email service and I have tried to make it available to as many of you, as cheaply as possible.

Good Luck.


In addition to the blog profits on the day to day matches, plus the Swansea, MK Dons, Zenit and Aldershot bets we also have two outstanding positions on the Premiership, which are reproduced below, it was originally written on August 10th 2007.

United are, obviously in a strong position going into the final weekend and so too, are Blackburn, who are currently in 7th and are joint leaders of the handicap, along with Arsenal. We might cover this bet in some way before the weekend, to at least cover our stakes, so, if you are involved, keep reading.


No real shocks for me here, United should retain their crown. Much has been written about the challenge from Liverpool this season and the money the Merseysiders have spent. They should indeed close the gap, but have a lot of ground to make up and need to start collecting wins on the road. Away from Anfield 18 goals, a total fewer than Wigan and Fulham and only two more than relegated Charlton, was nowhere near good enough.

Chelsea already enter the season with injury concerns and seem dependent on the goals of Didier Drogba, who will be missing for several weeks in mid season at the Cup of Nations.

United were lucky with injuries last season, but look much stronger this time round, what team in world football would not be, with the addition of Tevez, Nani, Anderson and Hargreaves. The defence still looks a little suspect, but Sir Alex's men scored 19 goals more than anyone else last season, that is a full half goal per game and they hardly look likely to score fewer this time round.

6 points Manchester United 2.375 outright, general quote.

Not going to put this up as a bet, but Tottenham should prove to be the best of the rest, currently quoted at 2.375, without the big 4. They have held on to Dimitar Berbatov and spent a fortune on Darren Bent, Robbie Keane has signed a new contract and even a poacher like Jermain Defoe, will be lucky to get a look in. With Lennon, Bale and Chimbonda eager to get forward at every opportunity, they have a surplus of attacking options.

The big minus is that Ledley King is out for 2-3 months and the Dawson- Gardner partnership, has yet to prove it works. Regardless of that, they looked booked for 5th place at worse, a spot they have occupied for the last two seasons.

Spent a long time looking at the handicap list and like the look of Mark Hughes' Blackburn Rovers.They have no shortage of pace and goals up front with Roque Santa Cruz joining Benni McCarthy and Jason Roberts, with David Bentley and Morten Gamst Pedersen just behind, they will be a match for all but the very best. They were quite adventurous on the road last year, only Bolton outside the top 4 had more wins, if they can win a few more at Ewood Park, they should improve on last years 10th spot. Maybe a repeat of 2005's 6th place is possible and that should take them close on the handicap, where they receive a 34 points start. Ladbrokes looks the place to go, as they give fewer points to the teams I see as potential dangers.

If that is not available to you,or makes limited appeal, they can be backed at 6.0 for a top 6 spot with Bet 365/ Ladbrokes and Paddy Power, amongst others.

2 points each way Blackburn Rovers +34 points handicap 16.0 1/5 odds 1234 Ladbrokes.

Good Luck.


Looking back over the long weekend, we had some nice bets on the blog, I was very pleased with the half time wager in the Stoke - Leicester match, where the game played out pretty much as we expected.

Since just before Christmas (December 19th), there have been 207 selections on the blog, these have produced 116 winners (56.04%), including some big odds winners, profits have been 182.94 points, on stakes of 1166.5 points, a ROI of 15.68 %.

These are wonderful returns over a 20 week period, just think about that for a moment, consistent profits and lots of additional information, over a five month period.

Reading and following my previews might not always make you a profit in the short term, but they are very likely to over the long haul and will definitely help make you a better informed and more astute gambler.

In addition to these, we had the outright bets on Swansea and MK Dons in their respective divisions, which produced huge dividends and are not included in the totals above, those previews can be viewed here , in what, is arguably, the greatest ever sports betting blog post, he said modestly. Plus the Blackburn wager given above.

Good Luck.



....... is never a bad thing to do, especially when you have backed one team at huge odds and down to two runners, their opponents can be backed at odds against. Which, is exactly the situation we find ourselves in, in the UEFA Cup, following Zenit's demolition of Bayern. For any of you that took the 21.0 available and tipped outright, before the quarter final stage, I think now is the time to cover our wager and take a profit. Please remember, this bet is only for those of you that have already backed Zenit. Rangers can be taken at 2.46 on the exchanges, which given our position, is too good to pass. The final will be played in the UK at the City of Manchester stadium and the Russian champions top scorer Pavel Pogrebnyak is suspended for the game. There is also a worry about some potential crowd unrest, given Zenit's supporters previous history against black players, Marseille were given a very tough time in Russia, hopefully, that will not happen, but it could upset the flow of the game, which could help Rangers. However, I still think that Zenit will win, so will keep them as a winner.

The suggested wager will leave Rangers as a winner for 16 points, Zenit for 27.5 points, which is terrific business.

HEDGE 12.5 points Rangers outright 2.44 + exchanges .... 2.46 available for small money.

I gave three selections on the email service today, we were firmly with Exeter in the lunchtime kick-off, where they ran out easy winners. Also gave a VERY strong bet for tonight, which will have to be solely for subscribers, which leaves us with the match below.

Will return later with another bet, which was given in the newsletter yesterday, please check back.



Finally, I will chance a little on the draw here. A point a piece, will suit very well, it will take Boulogne above Dijon in the table and give them a three point cushion over Niort, who currently occupy the final relegation place and whom, they have still to meet. For Grenoble, it would also give them a three point lead over Troyes, in the promotion race. These are healthy leads with just two rounds to go, of course, both would like to win, but neither can really afford to lose.

4 points draw 3.0 general quote.

Back later.


I will have a couple of posts online later today, so please check back.

Hosts have very litttle to play for and are going through the motions, with just a single point and no goals in their last four starts, they are set to be without a handful of players today and meet a very motivated opponent.Livorno switched coaches this week, with Fernado Orsi returning and vowing to get the three points today, which is their "only target". They are 3 points off safety, but with Torino and Empoli still to play, victory today, will at least, give them a chance of survival.

6.5 points Livorno -1/2 ball 2.29 asian line.

Good Luck.

SERIE A ....


Milan are still battling with Fiorentina for the sole remaining Champions League spot and these giants of european football, simply have to get it. They are overdue a good result in the derby and if any further motivation was needed, they will certainly not want to sit and watch Inter celebrate a title victory this afternoon. Ibrahimovic is out and Stankovic is doubful for the visitors, who have gone off the boil a little recently and will claim the title in front of a stadium packed with their own fans next week.

5 points Milan -1/4 ball 2.06

Good Luck.

CHAMPIONSHIP ...........


What a game ! Stoke will be promoted to the Premiership with a point, but may not need it if Hull do not win at Ipswich, Leicester need a win to ensure survival, but do not need anything, if Southampton lose at home to Sheffield United, if Saints draw, them a point will keep Leicester up. Therefore, surely both will adopt an extremely cautious approach, personally as coach of either side, I would be happy to get to half time and see where we stand. There is a huge opportunity for these two teams to help each other out and both celebrate come the final whistle. I feel that the half time draw offers excellent value.

Since writing this, I have found out that the two coaches, Holloway and Pullis are very close, one is, infact, godparent to the others children. Not saying that there will be anything "funny", but it is hardly a negative for this bet.

Good Luck.



The Gunners have handed Everton a few hammerings in recent seasons and another would not entirely surprise. The Toffees looked booked for 5th spot regardless of what happens today, following Villa's slip up yesterday and may save any remaining energy for their home fans. Arsenal still have an outside chance for second spot and rediscovered their goal touch in the thumping of Derby on Monday. They will dominate the midfield, with the visitors still missing Arteta and Cahill and can send their supporters home with the feelgood factor, in the final emirates match of the season.

6 points Arsenal -1/2 ball 1.62 general quote.

Back shortly.


Fantastic day in prospect, with much still to be decided across Europe, but especially in the UK, with some amazing fixtures in the Championship.

I have written previews of NINE sporting events on the email service. Including four domestic football matches, two from Italy , one from France and a look at the final day of the Waichovia Championship on the USPGA Tour.

Despite having writers cramp, I will be putting 3-4 of these on the blog later in the day.

Details of the email service can be found on the website

Good Luck.

United are a bigger club than Albion and seem to have got their act together after a slump in form, with three straight wins, I accept that those victories have come against sides lacking a little in motivation, but you can do no more than beat what is put in front of you and they would have given a real boost to confidence levels.
Injury wise, they seem in better shape than the hosts who have three key players set to miss out. The U's had the better of the two league meetings, collecting four points, including a fine 2-1 win here at the Pirelli stadium. They will have massive support cheering them on, with over 1600 fans likely to make up 40% + of the crowd. This will be tight, but only runaway champions Aldershot have collected more away points than Cambridge and they have not lost in six meetings, against any of the other play-off teams ,I do not see that changing this evening. Burton have conceded fairly freely at home, easily more than any of the other top 5 sides.

6 points Cambridge +1/4 ball 1.80 asian line.


Hosts have nothing to play for and Libourne are drinking in the last chance saloon. They have to throw caution to the win and seek the three points to keep any survival hopes alive. Sedan have not won in four and failed to score in three of those, they have a huge cup semi-final with Lyon in midweek and will rest players with that in mind. This looks like and away win to me and is a confident choice.

6 points Libourne -1/2 ball 3.60+ .... 3.75 available in places

Good Luck.
