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.
