MONDAY MORNING ...........

The "corners" bet was a winner yesterday and I remain in fantastic form, with the winners flowing like a Richard Gasquet backhand. With six from seven correct over the weekend alone.

Fantastic day of tennis and football action today, with, of course, Wimbledon taking centre stage, I have previewed five events on the email service, including some big priced selections. This is an exceptional time of year to make money and a little "homework" goes a long way, if you do not have time to put the hours in, you really should consider becoming a subscriber.

Here is today's email in full, it has already produced a profit for subscribers, regardless of what happens in the Euro 2008 final. HJK won 3-2, stakes returned, although twice led by two goals. In the MLS game, I not only gave DC and the "over" ,but also suggested five goals was likely, the score 4-1 !

EURO 2008

I have just lost all my notes for today and an not happy, so am typing this quickly and not in a very good mood !

We know these two sides very well after three weeks of action from Euro 2008 and it seems clear that every neutral is cheering for the Spanish. They will be without the injured David Villa, more about that later, but with Cesc Fabregas coming into the side, it is hard to see how they are weakened in any way, shape, or form. Michael Ballack was injured in training on friday and the medical team have been working round the clock, to get him fit, I cannot see any way that he will miss out, on what would be a second major international final, after suspension ruled him out of the 2002 World Cup decider. He should take his place, in what could be a very crowded midfield.

I get an inkling that we might see the best of the Germans, I am hoping that we will see the high tempo display that they put in against Portugal, rather than the lethargic team that took the field against Turkey. This has been the way the tournament has gone so far, with few teams performing well a second time in a row, Russia looked fantastic in the quarters and devoid of energy or ideas against the Spanish. Who, themselves stepped up on a poor showing against Italy, where they quickly run out of a plan "b".

Man for man, Spain are the better team, mentally, the Germans are clearly stronger. We are already on them outright at 5.0 and that is interest enough, if pushed for a selection, extra time would not surprise me this evening.

In the top goalscorer market,Villa leads on 4 goals, with Podolski on 3, Guiza, Schweinsteiger, Klose and Ballack all have two each. We are on Podolski and Klose at huge odds, so also have an interest here, with Villa out and Guiza starting on the bench, we are still in the hunt. A goal for Podolski, or a brace for Klose would give us a share of the spoils and a good payday, which, if the game opens up, is not out of the question.

So, plenty of interest already for us. I will put up one selection though, in a market that we have been following closely through the tournament, namely corners. The slow German central defenders, are happy to concede corners, secure in the knowledge that they have a big height advantage against most teams and a massive one over Spain, the smallest side in the tournament.

Corner wise, they have only outscored Poland (4-3), they conceded at least 7 in the other 4 games, 8 in each of the last three, only averaging 4.2 themselves.

Spain are mean in this department, only conceding 13 all tournament, nine against the Russians in two starts, so just 4 in total ,in games verses Italy, Sweden and Spain . Given that they are likely to have most of the ball tonight, they should again win this market, they will certainly be very wary of giving their opponents any easy dead ball situations, given the huge height differential.

7.5 points Spain to win more corners 1.62 asian line.


Very quickly here, where I am keeping stakes small, I have received a good word about HJK, who are expected to have a strong finish (no pun intended) to the season. RoPS have started very well, they were widely tipped as relegation favourites and are in midtable at present, they have quite rightly decided to target their winable fixtures, a plan which will now, given the points in the bag, give them a chance of survival, to that end, all eyes are on on their home game with the basement club next week. Huge difference between these two clubs ,as indicated by their playing budgets for the season, with RoPS having just one third of the funds available to HJK.

4.5 points HJK -1 ball 1.76 asian line.


The two biggest names in US football, David Beckham and Landon Donovan come to Washington and a huge crowd is expected. All who arrive will be expecting goals, as we have the two top scoring offenses (24 and 31 respectively) , facing the leakiest defences (25 and 24). It is difficult not to see this developing into a shoot out.

I told you last week that DC are a team to keep on our side, they are unbeaten in five, with four wins and look firmly back on track.

The Galaxy have all their talent going forward and have scored three or more, six times in 13 starts. At the other end they are conceding almost two, per game. This is almost entirely down to the salary cap, all the money has been spent on, well, you know who and Donovan, the dregs of what is left, on the defence. Their gameplan is clear, you score two, we will score three and so on.

Hosts will be without Mediate, Olsen and Doe, no real concerns there, they are one of the few teams that can compete offensively with LA and at present, look stronger at the back, but not by much !

I have to side with them and the "over" looks a given, five goals this evening would not surprise.

4.5 points DCUnited -1/2 ball 2.10 general quote.
5 points "over" 3 goals 1.98 asian line.

Good Luck.

SUNDAY UPDATE ..........

Nice day yesterday, where, unusually, my email selections were kept to tennis, we were involved in four matches and three produced a profit, almost 11 points in total, we were unfortunate not to record a clean sweep.Selections ....

5 points Youzhny to beat Stepanek 2.44 exchanges. WON

6.5 points Clement to beat Melzer 1.96 exchanges. WON

3.5 points Dulko to beat Dementieva 3.60 exchanges/ 3.65 Pinnacle.
1.5 points Dementieva to win 2-1 sets 4.40 exchanges. LOST 6-7 ,5-7 pretty unlucky Dulko led 4-0 in the first and served for the set.

3 points Wozniacki to beat Jankovic 4.40 exchanges/Pinnacle.
1.5 points Jankovic to win 2-1 sets 4.70 exchanges. WON Wozniacki won the first set, so a profit ensured immediately.

I have kept to our bread and butter today and previewed three football matches, with four selections including a 7.5 point bet, which I am, obviously, confident about. As I type, I am planning to post this on the blog later today, but, as always, this depends on how the market hold up.

The only way to receive all my selections, is to subscribe to the newsletter, it is delivered daily to your inbox, for as little as $2 per day, has made huge profits for subscribers and offers fantantastic value for money, details are on the website .

Good Luck with your bets today.

Maybe, but not for subscribers, who amongst four previews today were sent this ...........


I am still not convinced by Jankovic on grass, or maybe any of the Serbians, remember, Ivanovic and Djokovic are already out in the first week and we could have a hat-trick this afternoon.

She has a 29-12 record on grass, but that is mainly down to a 11-3 campaign last year, that is a little misleading, Jankovic did not beat too much and lost as soon as she met someone happy on the surface, Sharapova, Chakvetadze and Bartoli.

So, is Wozniacki comfortable on grass ? I think so. The 17yo Danish (!) player, won a grass court tournament in Liverpool back in 2006 at age 15, beating some proven ATP regulars, she also took the Wimbledon Junior title the same year. This year, during which she has burst into the world top 30, Wozniacki again won Liverpool, beat Kuznetsova at Eastbourne and won two matches here, so is 9-1 on the surface, winning eight in straight sets, including one against a top 5 ranked player. That will do for me and at huge odds we have to chance a little, again, combined with a saver on her to take a set.

3 points Wozniacki to beat Jankovic 4.40 exchanges/Pinnacle.
1.5 points Jankovic to win 2-1 sets 4.70 exchanges.


If you bet, you need Predictuwin, details here.

The shocks continue at Wimbledon and still two days short of the second week, we have already lost Djokovic, Roddick, Davydenko and Sharapova. Ana Ivanovic was a net cord away from going out too and it has been a dream for "in running" traders on the exchanges.

Some very interesting matches today, with former champion, fallen on hard times, Amelie Mauresmo against the raincoat wearing Serena Williams, ironically at the first dry tournament for years. Looking at the new wave, Egbaston winner Agnieszka Radwanska, a former junior winner here, faces the youngest player in the tournament, Anatasia Pavlyuchenkova, who has already beaten Li Na, which was a very nice 2.94 winner for subscribers. This is a "must watch" game and a chance to make some notes for the future.

There is an incredible amount of young talent coming through in the women's game and no doubt, there will still be a few shocks in the coming day or two. However, Grand Slam events are always won by an established player and come the business end of next week, that will again be the case.

I have previewed three sporting events on the email today, with four actual selections, including my views on the winner of the Woman's Championship and also a strong bet for the football tonight. Unfortunately, these will have to be kept for subscribers and it will not be possible for me to post any selections on the blog today.

The email service has made HUGE tax free profits for subscribers, take a look at the website for further details.

Good Luck with your bets today.

Bohemians and Melzer both obliged yesterday, earning subscribers a very tidy 12 point profit, on a "quiet" Tuesday.

I have previewed four matches today and am confident of adding to this week's profit. Bookmakers are firmly fixated on Euro 2008 and there are plenty of juicy betting alternatives on offer elsewhere. As I suggested a few weeks ago, this is a fantastic time of year to make money, when oddsmakers are forced to price up markets that they lack knowledge of, do your homework and you are likely to make money. Or take the easy option and subcribe to the email service

Good Luck with your bets today.

Tuesday, June 24, 2008


Here is today's email in full, which was sent to subscribers at 09.15 (uk time), this morning.

I think most of you will appreciate the value of the information. Melzer currently leads 2-0 in sets, 1-1 in the third and can now be layed at circa 1.20, win or lose, that is a pretty nice position if you are on at 2.58 ! Bohemians, have been backed from the recommended 1.90, down to 1.74.

Details of the service can be found on



There can be little doubt that Ljubicic has gone backwards from his peak a couple of years ago, he is still very capable on his day, but those are certainly becoming less frequent and grass has never really been his surface. In three starts on grass this year, he has only beaten Troicki (ranked 100) and that was quite a battle.

Today he faces Melzer, who is 2-2 on grass this year and has arguably the better record at Wimbledon, where he has wins over Gonzalez and Ljubicic. more about that in a minute, he has also been unlucky with the draw in the past, running into proven performers on the surface, early in the tournament, like Rusedski and Philippousis, but always testing his opponents.

The win over Ljubicic, which was their only previous meeting came in 2005, the Croatian was just coming into his prime and certainly in better form than now. Melzer won in straight sets 4, 4, and 4, it was a match of few break points, but the Austrian played all the big points well. I see something similar today, this could easily go to a couple of tie breaks, it will certainly be close, Ljubicic is still a "scalp" and Melzer looks good value to repeat.

3.5 points Melzer to beat Ljubicic 2.56 Pinnacle.... a little 2.58 on the exchanges.


I am very keen on this bet. Finn Harps do not look up to this level, they have won just once in 13 starts, losing 10, including their last outing, which was a dire performance, they did not show at all and lost 2-1 away to Division 1 basement club Athlone, who had not previously won at home all season. That was 18 days ago and Harps have not had a fixture since, due to the mid season break, which means they have been brooding on it for almost three weeks.

If that was not bad enough, they are without the spine of their team today, with six players injured and striker Stephen Parkhouse suspended, he scored two goals in their only win in 13 and without him, much of their limited goal threat is gone.

Bohemians are probably the best team in Ireland, certainly on current form, they have won 7 in a row, including a 5-1 win in the Intertoto Cup at the weekend, which will also leave them the fitter of the two sides. A win this evening will give them a five point lead at the top of the table and with a tough run of fixtures, on three fronts and only one home league game in the next five weeks, they want to make the most of this "easy" match. They have huge competition for places now, with several key members of the squad, including Hunt,Cronin and Kelly all fully fit, returning and ultra keen to start, in what is already a winning side.

It is hard to see any let up, or change in form for either of these two, Bohemians have won the last three meetings, scoring three goals in each, including in a 3-0 win in the reverse fixture, earlier this season, I expect a similar margin of victory tonight.

7.5 points Bohemians -3/4 ball 1.90 asian line.

Good Luck.


Another fine day is forecast at Wimbledon and I have including a preview of one of the men's matches on the email service today, along with a very strong bet for one of today's football matches.

Feel that my analysis of this fixture is spot on and that the odds are set to tumble, the price has already fallen 4 "clicks" and I will be amazed if it is not significantly shorter by early afternoon. If possible, I will post this online later in the day.

The email service has now made over 416 points profit since late September, all results and archived newsletters are posted on the website

That's some 270 emails, that can be read in full, which have produced an average of well over 1.5 points profit each and every day, for nine months ! Most subscribers have paid under $2 per day for the service, even a modest $15 unit stake, would have produced over $6250 profit.

All selections are given along with full anlaysis and if you are serious about your gambling, it is a very valuable tool and will help you become a winner. It is not a get rich quick scheme, the aim is to make consistent long term profits and no one can dispute that it delivers.

Good Luck.

MONDAY ......

The Spain- Italy game was very disappointing, but I guess in the end, the right team progressed, at least the Spanish tried to play a little football.

Not many would have picked the semi-final line up, GERMANY- TURKEY/ SPAIN - RUSSIA at the outset, although a Germany-Spain final was a popular choice and looks quite likely now. Having said that, this Russian side has grown massively in confidence, from the one which lost heavily to Spain, in the opening group fixture and Arshavin looks made for the big stage.

I have previewed three events on the email service today and am looking to continue last week's great form. Wimbledon gets under way at lunchtime and incredibly, the weather is pretty good, dry and sunny, amazing !

Details of the daily newsletter can be found on the website

Good Luck.

Sunday, June 22, 2008


Another couple of winners on the email yesterday, newsletter selections have made a profit on all six days this week and subscribers are over 42 points up, since Monday.

I have sent out previews of four sporting events today, three of them football wagers, including a 7 and 8 point selection.

We will be down to just four teams in Euro 2008 after today's mouth watering clash between Spain and World Champions, Italy. I have been looking forward to this since the moment, Holland scored their second goal against Romania and hope that it lives up to the hype.

So much to look forward to, including the start of Wimbledon tomorrow and I wish you all good luck with your bets.

Saturday, June 21, 2008


Monaghan United won yesterday and I hope that some of you decided to get involved.

I have given three selections on the email service today and feel confident that subscribers will be adding to this week's profit, which already stands at 40 points.

It will not be possible to post any previews on the blog today, maybe tomorrow, where I am looking at four selections, including, possibly, a 7 point + wager.

As always, if you like and enjoy the previews, only 10-15% of which are posted on the blog, you are welcome to join the email service, which is the only way to receive all my output, full details are on

Good Luck with your bets today.

Irish football has now restarted after the short, three week, mid season break, actually, for most clubs it was just two weeks, with a cup game to play, after the completion of league duties.

I am making the visitors my selection, despite not having scored in 5 starts and being without their best player ! Playmaker Ian Maher being suspended this evening.

However, United were playing well before the break, without getting any breaks in front of goal, including in a 0-0 cup draw with Premier league side UCD, where they more than held their own.

In Wexford, they are meeting a side, struggling just as much in the goalscoring department, with just one goal in six outings. So, a goal fest is unlikely tonight, well, maybe not. As we have discussed before, when two struggling sides meet, there are often goals and the last 5 meetings between these two have all produced 2+ goals, the two fixtures here, averaging 5 per game.It would not surprise me if this was also "over".

However, I feel the better bet, is taking the visitors with the handicap start, as I said recent performances have shown promise and Youths, as the name might suggest, are very short on experience and have six likely starters aged 19 or under, actually four could be sub 18, that is way too young and is the core of their problems. Before the break they failed to break down non league side Killester United at home in the cup, infact, they were fortunate not to lose. They meet a tougher opponent tonight and are set to struggle again, the visitors will take heart from their two wins here last season and the number of chances they created in the first meeting this campaign.

5 points Monaghan United +1/4 2.09 asian line.

Good Luck.

TGIF .......

Since Monday morning I have sent out ten new previews/selections on the email service , eight of which have won .....

Monday 5 points Austria more corners +1.5 handicap 2.44 asian line. WON 9.5-6 + 7.2 pts

6 points Poland -1/4 ball asian line 2.05. LOST -6 pts

6 points Orgryte -1/4 ball 1.87 asian line. WON 5-0 +5.22 pts

Tuesday 5.5 points Italy level ball 1.84 asian line. WON 2-0 + 4.62 pts

5.5 points Boston Celtics -4 points 1.93 Pinnacle/ Vegas line. WON 131-92 +5.12 pts

Wednesday 4.5 points Guiza to score 2.75 Bet 365/ William Hill/Paddy Power. WON + 7.875 pts

6.5 points Russia level ball 2.05 asian line. WON 2-0 + 6.825 pts

6 points Brazil -1/4 ball 1.98 asian line. DRAW half stake loser -3 pts

Thursday 5 points Germany level ball 2.28 asian line. WON 3-2 +6.4 pts

5.5 points Brommapojkarna 1.90 -1/4 ball asian line. WON 2-1 +4.95 pts

So, an 80% strike rate and over 39 points profit in just 4 days, using a $20 unit stake, you would be over $784 up on the week and it is only Friday morning ! The subscription cost for this period would have been $7.87, which reduces your clear profit all the way down to $776 !

Be honest with yourself, how have you done over this period ? I know that probably all of you have had a bet, have you made anything like the level of profit subscribers have enjoyed ? If not, I seriously think that you should consider joining the service, all results and emails are archived on the website and can be viewed in full. The service is now OVER 400 points up, since late September.

Good Luck.

Subscribers were sent the following two previews for yesterday's matches at Euro 2008, both won, as have 6 of the 8 selections this week, producing almost 28 points profit in just 3 days. If betting for $20 units, you would already be over $557 up since Monday afternoon. Details of the service can be found on the website

EURO 2008

Wholesale changes for Spain, several of the squad are said to be already suffering from fatigue and with this match now meaningless from a qualification point of view, all the fringe players will be given an outing. Of course, those selected will all be hungry and desperate to prove that they are worthy of consideration, later in the tournament. Cesc Fabregas and Daniel Guiza will be especially eager to show what they can do, for some reason Aragones is not so keen on Fabregas, Guiza can have less cause for complaint, as he is clearly behind Villa and Torres. However, Guiza, who might be on the move again this summer, after bagging an incredible 27 goals in 39 appearances in his first season for Mallorca in La Liga, can be the focus of our attention.

He is likely to get chances against this slow and ponderous Greek defence, which is weakened this evening. The disappointing (understatement) defending champions, will surely want to go out with a more positive display and hopefully will at least attempt to get forward a little more often, which will give even more space at the back. I think that Guiza is a great price in the anytime goalscorer market, in a match which could/should produce a few goals.

4.5 points Guiza to score 2.75 Bet 365/ William Hill/Paddy Power .......... plenty of 2.625 around too.


These two are fighting for the pleasure of meeting the Netherlands in the quarter-finals, a draw will suffice for the Swedes, Russia need the win. That will not change the nature of the game much, with the Russians much more attack minded than Sweden.

Hiddink has pledged that his side will push forward from the off and he is very motivated to meet his native country in the next round.

Arshavin is finally available, but might start on the bench, being a little short of match fitness, but what an option to have. Russia have played pretty well so far, should have scored a few more against Greece and had little luck in the loss to Spain, where the scoreline didn't tell the full story.

Sweden are very disciplined and well organised, but are totally dependant on Zlatan Ibrahimovic to add a touch of class and score the goals, without him, they look toothless. The problem is, he is still not fit and 45 minutes is about all they can ask of him.

If they have a weakness defensively, it is down the left, where the loss of Edman is hard felt and this is an area where Russia are very strong. No doubt Sweden will set out for the draw, Russia are the better team and we can back them at odds against with the level ball option, what are you waiting for, get on !

6.5 points Russia level ball 2.05 asian line.

Good Luck.

Tuesday, June 17, 2008


I posted three selections on the blog for the first time in ages yesterday, Poland were disappointing, but the other two bets won easily, 5-0 and 10-6 (the corner wager). Hopefully, you made a little profit.

These are typical of a day's email output, it is not possible to win every day, or week, or even month, this is gambling and there will be swings in results , but the information is original, well researched, from good sources and will make a profit in the long term. Blog selections have made a profit in over 75% of weeks since I started posting some 26 months ago and the archived daily newsletter, is showing almost spot on 400 points profit since late September alone, these are fantastic returns.

The email service is sent out every morning, with each selection carrying a full preview, like below, the cost is around $3 US per day, it is the only way to get all the Predictuwin output and is inexpensive for such a quality product. Full details are on the website

I am just finishing off today's right now, which will carry 3-4 previews , if any are covered on the blog, they will be posted mid afternoon.

Good Luck with your bets today.

BACK TO EURO 2008 ...............


No secrets here, Slaven Bilic is, quite rightly, going to rest all his players on one yellow card, plus several other key members of his squad. They have trouble with motivation in "friendly" matches, I do not count the win at Wembley, that was a very high profile game and they were probably on huge bonus' from the Russians to get a result.

Poland still have a chance of making the quarter finals, they have to better Austria's score, with both winning, so, no chance really, but you have to try. I do not have any qualms on that front in any case, in the last two World Cup's, they won their final group starts, with only pride to play for. They will also be looking to show that they are not a lost cause, ahead of hosting the next Championships.

6 points Poland -1/4 ball asian line 2.29.

Good Luck.



Hosts are very sloppy defensively and have conceded an average of 2.6 per home start this season. It is not like they have been playing world beaters either, conceding two to basement club Vasby and four to Angelholms. Their only win on home soil, came against struggling Jonkopings, who are dire on the road.

Visitors have had a good season so far, probably above expectation and bounced back from a mini blip, with the derby win over Qviding. A win tonight could take them third, it will certainly keep them in touch with the top four, who look a cut above theother Superettan sides, even at this early stage of the season. They will be confident of repeating last year's comfortable win here and Enkoping are without a couple of starters.

6 points Orgryte -1/4 ball 1.87 asian line.

Good Luck.

EURO 2008 ...............


I can see no scenario under which Germany will not progress to the knockout stage, but have absolutely no intention of backing them giving up such a big handicap, especially when a draw will do. Having said that, there is very much a big brother- little brother relationship between these two and regardless of how the game is played, they normally win easily. Last four meetings have all been won by at least three goals, with 17 scored in total. However, now the Austrian's are playing with the world watching and surely they will fight to the very end. The last friendly in February, played here in Vienna, was typical, the hosts dominated for sixty minutes, missing any number of chances, then conceded one, followed by two more. Same old story.

Schweinsteiger is suspended, which can only be a plus for the Germans, he has been woeful and it looks like Gomez will make way, with Klose and Podolski ( two goals please), starting up front, defensively, although he is more often elsewhere, they will be without Janssen.

If you want a traditional bet on the game, if pushed,I would have to suggest Germany, but will be looking elsewhere myself. I have been following the corners market in the tournament, which are traded in-running, in Asia and offer great trading opportunities. Anyway. I feel that there is a terrific value bet on Austria to get more corners than Germany, with the hosts receiving a 1.5 corner "start".

Opposing Germany, this would have been a winner, in both opening games and Austria have shown attacking ability, just not when it comes to putting the ball into the net, they have averaged 6.5 corners per game, 1.5 more than their opponent.

I expect the hosts to at least try and make the early running and, at the other end, to be wary of giving away too many easy corners, against the physically huge visiting side. Austria had a lot of joy in the last friendly from corners, with Lehmann, dropping a couple of crosses, they might see this as the best way to strike. Germany need to "outscore" Austria by three in this market and that might not be too easy, at big odds against, it is impossible for me to pass.

5 points Austria more corners +2 handicap 2.23 asian line.

Good Luck.

Friday, June 13, 2008



Yesterday we were right to ignore the form of a single game, which can be very misleading.

I do not expect the Dutch to look as good today, they were very flattered by the scoreline in their win over Italy, two goals came on breakaways, when Italy were close to scoring and Donadoni got his tactics wrong.

Likewise, the French, despite the antics of their coach Raymond Domenech, who looks increasingly like he should be starring in Cabaret the musical, they cannot be as toothless as they were against the Romanians. Many believe, that for political reasons, they were happy to take a point in that game and conserve energy for the two battles ahead. Whatever the merits of that, they are sure to put in a better performance today and will certainly be facing a less well organised defence.They will have Henry and Viera available today and a fully fit squad to choose from.

I think that with the level ball option, at odds against, they offer excellent value, the Dutch would be very happy to accept a draw, which will leave them in a strong position ahead of the final group game. Robben and van Persie are available, but neither are sure to start.

See a very cautious opening here and personally, I might bet a little on the half time draw, but will stick with the 90 minute bet here.

5.5 points France level ball 2.05 asian line.

Good Luck.

FREAKY FRIDAY THE 13TH ...........

We (subscribers) had a fantastic day yesterday, the five email selections produced two winners, one "no bet"-push (which was incredibly unlucky) and the other two will not be decided until the weekend, but are both now trading at significantly lower odds. In addition, three of our long term positions in Euro 2008, have shortened dramatically after yesterday's results !

I am just fine tuning today's email, but it will contain 4 or 5 selections, including one 8 pointer (very rare) for the weekend.

FRIDAY OFFER: Take out a three month subscription to the email service before midday tomorrow ( cost £149, 199 euros, $299), if the service doesn't make 100 points profit over that period, I will give you a further three months completely free !

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

Two fun games to watch at Euro 2008 yesterday, even if the weather was the star player in the second ! Let's hope that today's are equally as entertaining.

I have previewed four events/ five selections on the email service and might post something on the blog a little later.

Will definitely put something online tomorrow and am very likely to send an 8 points selection to subscribers for the weekend action, which I am considering putting on the blog too, so keep an eye out for that.

Details of the daily newsletter can be found on the website

Good Luck.

EURO 2008 ........


Czech Republic are a very tough side to break down, concede few goals, just five in qualification and already have three points in the bag. However, they are very one dimensional, have little creative talent in midfield and if they persist in Koller on his own up front, will struggle to score, he could play all week and not get any joy against this Portugese defence. They sorely miss Rosicky and were incredibly fortunate to beat Switzerland and on another day, would have conceded two penalties, suspect the other 11 referees here, would have given at least one.I have absolutely no doubt that they will play solely for the draw and therefore, the only question is whether or not, the Portugese can score.

I think that they will, Turkey offered little resistance in the opener and Portugal could easily have scored 4 or 5. Ronaldo looked in top shape and more importantly, very motivated, feel that he will be very hungry to get a goal today.I was also impressed, for the first time in ages, by Deco, who has had a terrible time in Barcelona this season and is obviously in the "shop window", looking for a new club and Carvalho, who is a colussus at the back.This looks a team already playing at , or near, the peak of their powers and they should be too good for a decidely average Czech side.They are also at an advantage, having already played in Geneva.

6 points Portugal -1/2 ball asian line 1.85.

Good Luck.

TUESDAY NEWS ...........

The matches are coming thick and fast this week, in addition to Romania yesterday, which was posted here, we were firmly with Holland in the late game and also had a winner in Scandinavia, so 3 from 3 for subscribers and over 13 .5 points profit, which is a nice way to start the week.

I have previewed three events today on the newsletter, giving five selections, unlikely to post anything bet wise on the blog, but if anyone wants to receive a free copy of today's email, to give you a "feeling" for the service, just send me a message, via the "contact us" button on the website .

EURO 2008 ...............


You already know that I am keen on Romania as they were discussed in detail, in the Euro 2008 preview. They have had an uneventful training camp, which is ideal and are able to name their strongest available line up this afternoon.

Romania are a very talented bunch, however, aside from Adrian Mutu, who is widely considered world class amd Cristian Chivu, one of the best defenders in europe, they are hardly household names, even in their own home and have not been given the recognition they deserve. They were in a tough qualification group, alongside Bulgaria and Netherlands, Romania had the better of two games with the Dutch, taking four points from them, without conceding and were unlucky not to win in Rotterdam.

There is no reason why Romania cannot be very competitive in this group and the quotes are crazy, if they were from western europe, their odds would be halved. They were similarly written off in 2000 in a group containing Portugal, England (those were the days !) and Germany and came through that, this squad looks of a similar, if not higher quality. They are currently ranked number 12 in the world, which officially puts them on par with Portugal, Croatia and Netherlands, yet they seem to have been excluded from all calculations.

It is a little different for the French, Viera is out, Ribery is carrying a knock and Thierry Henry was not expected to start, but he did train yesterday for the first time in four days, so might take his place, or at least, play some part.

France are very tight defensively and only conceded five goals during qualification, it is, amazingly, given the array of talent at their disposal, at the other end of the pitch, that they are struggling. Failing to score in six of their last 14 starts. Eight of France's last ten matches against teams ranked in the world's top 15, have produced one goal or less, both other starts were against Italy.

I am not a big fan of their coach Raymond Domenech, who has gone a long way, on not very much, in two decades as a boss, he has yet to win a single trophy and seems as interested in a player's star sign, as his ability.

Cannot see many goals here, hopefully France will get off to their usual slow start and Romania will steal a goal late on. That is normally their way, with just 5 of their last 33 goals being scored before the 40th minute. They are no slouches at the back either and only Bulgaria, in a meaningless match for Romania have scored twice against them in 17 starts.

5.5 points Romania +3/4 ball 1.80 asian line.

Good Luck.


The French Open tennis final was painful to watch, it was hard not to feel sorry for Federer, he is a 12 time Grand Slam winner, has prize money earnings of $40m + and probably treble that from sponsorship etc. Yet this morning, he will wake up feeling like a loser !

Tennis aside, I had a very good day yesterday, my four other selections all won and Podolski, who I tipped to subscribers at 26.0 in the top goalscorer market, notched a couple and is now trading at cica 4.0.

The Germany- Poland game went pretty much to plan, you always know what you are going to get with the Germans. We were strongly with Croatia yesterday, they were hanging on at the finish and looked totally exhausted, might be a case of over training in the build up. Slaven Bilic is a very clever guy and I hope he will give his squad a couple of easy days in the build up to the match with Germany on Thursday, where I have a strong opinion.

I have previewed three football matches on the email service today, which is showing over 399 points profit since late September, all of which are archived, in full, on the website

Hoping to put one of these on the blog later today, so please check back.

Good Luck with your bets today.

EURO 2008 ..........


On paper, Germany look too strong for Poland, but football is never that simply and we only have to look back to 2006 World Cup, when, despite dominating the game, it took an injury winner for Germany to pinch the points.I do think that they will win, but cannot get involved in the match odds at the current quotes.

I understand from the local media that Joachim Low is set to field all of Klose, Gomez and Podolski, which should be fun to watch, however, with Jansen at the back also looking to get forward at every opportunity, they could be vunerable to the counter attack, especially down that flank .

Likely line up ....

Friedrich - Metzelder - Mertesacker - Jansen
Fritz - Ballack - Frings - Podolski ( Schweinsteiger)
Klose - Gomez

Poland seem to lack some quality on the left side of defence, which Germany will be looking to exploit and also make the most of their physical size at set pieces, where the Poles have been very vunerable in recent starts, particularly against the USA. They have an inferiority complex against the Germans, have not won in 15 meetings, failed to score in 6 of the last seven and have also not scored in their last five opening matches in major championships. I do not think that they will be overly adventurous today, in the World Cup, their only goals came in their final start against Costa Rica, in what had become a friendly.

I have the suspicion that they will go into their shell tonight and will happy to keep the game scoreless for as long as possible. Going to take a little on the Germans to keep a clean sheet and hope that out top goalscorer selections, can notch a couple at the other end.

4 points Germany to keep a clean sheet 2.10 exchanges/ asian line.

Good Luck.



Gimnastic arrive in great form, with just one loss in ten, having won their last four, but many of those results came against struggling sides and having secured their safety now, motivation might well dip.

Tenerife are lower mid table, but still need a win to secure their Segunda future.Facing a final day fixture away to promotion chasing Malaga, they will want to settle this today. They are strong at home, with a 10-6-4 record, but have lost their last two, so they owe the fans a win and those losses came against Gijon and Sociedad, both looking to be playing in Primera next season. They will be happy to meet a side with less ambition today and should collect the points.

6 points Tenerife -1/4 ball 1.98 asian line.



Rafa - Fedex #17, in a rivalry that is set to run and run .Nadal leads 10-6, 8-1 on clay, but only two of those wins have come in straight sets.There are signs that Federer is getting a little closer on dirt, but probably not close enough. However, in three meetings at Roland Garros, he has taken a set each time and I see no reason why he cannot do likewise today.They have met twice this year, at Monte Carlo, Rafa won 7-5, 7-5 and at Hamburg, he avenged last years loss 7-5, 6-7, 6-3.

Therefore, Federer has taken at least 5 games in four of the last five sets.There are some fancy odds for Nadal to win the first set, yet lose 5+ games and ,in addition to my set betting, I am going to take a little on those.

4.5 points Nadal to win 3-1 sets 3.50 exchanges.
1.5 points Nadal to win 3-2 sets 7.20 exchanges.

First set correct score
1 point Nadal to win 7-5 12.0 general quote ..... 13.0 Stan James.
1 point Nadal to win 7-6 8.50 Hills/ Blue Square.

Good Luck.

EURO 2008 .......


Since 1984, ten european countries have hosted/ joint hosted one of the two major football championships, that is 30 group matches for the home nation and they have posted an incredibly impressive 24-3-3 record. Only Belgium, twice in 2000 and Portugal in 2004 have lost and the Portugese still went on to reach the final.

In the European Championship, a host nation has reached, at least, the semi-final stage. in all twelve finals.

Most recent host nations have shown poor form going into the tournament, but that is hardly surprising, as they have basically been playing friendlies for two years and we know how hard it is to get motivated for those. Therefore, we can expect an improved showing from either Austria or Switzerland and I definitely feel that the Swiss have the greater potential.

They impressed me in the last World Cup, where they went out without losing, or even conceding a single goal and completely outplayed the French.Coach Jakob Kuhn has them well organised and they remain very tight defensively, they have a mixture of youthful promise and experience and in Aleaxander Frei, a proven goalscorer who despite a injury hit season, seems to have recovered and found his scoring touch just in time, with six in his last eight games for Dortmund.

This is a group where I have doubts about the other three teams, Portugal look worthy favourites, but will be dependant on Ronaldo's goals, Czech Republic look past their best, are missing their most creative players and are another who look set to struggle for goals and Turkey are an enigma, they could be anything, but have a number of inexperienced players and aside from Nihat, the other three strikers have 11 appearances and one goal between them.

Therefore, I give the Swiss a real chance to progress and think the odds against quote is pretty generous, they can expect to get any "favours"going from the officials and I will discuss this a little later. I make them a strong bet and will also take a little on Frei, who is their all time highest scorer, with 35 goals in just 58 matches and notched a couple last week, to be their top marksman, after his injury problems, he comes into the tournament fresh and hungry. Streller and Yakin are the only others to have reached double digits goal wise and combined, they are still nine short of Frei's total.

8 points Switzerland to qualify 2.20 general quote.... 2.25 in places.... NOW 2.05

I sent this to subscribers in the first part of my Euro 2008 preview last week, once again they got the best of the deal, there is a massive difference between getting 2.25 for your money, compared to 2.05. Let me explain, if you have a 48% success rate, staking $100 across 100 bets, the first equates to an $800 profit, the second, a $160 loss ........... you HAVE to get the best of the odds.


Good Luck.

We (subscribers) are on Sveta outright at 9.0 and again at 7.4, she is currently trading at circa 4.0, so a very nice payday in prospect and the option of taking an assured profit, if she makes the final. I feel that she matches up well with Safina, who has had two gruelling matches this week and is starting to look a little drained. In addition to which, she made the Berlin final, which was a roller coaster ride of a tournament for her and mentally exhausting.This is her first Grand Slam semi and I personally feel that it is one game too many. I certainly do not seeing Sveta letting her back into the game from a winning position, should the situation arise, like Dementieva and Sharapova felt compelled to.

Kuznetsova leads the h2h 4-4 and is 3-1 on the surface, including a 7-6 6-0 win at Roland Garros in 2006. She has not dropped a set in paris this year and appears very focused. Obviously, there is no need for us to get overly involved today, but if you are not on the outright bet , then I do think that she will win.

5 points Kuznetsova to beat Safina 1.66 Pinnacle/ exchanges.

Next we have the Serbian Cup final, with these two not only in contention for their "national title", but also the world number one position. Ivanovic has been made a prohibitively short priced favourite for today's battle, I can understand why, to a degree, but it seems another over reaction, 1.40 let's get real ! She did show nerves serving out for the match in the quarters, even though she held a huge lead at the time and if Jankovic can keep it close, there is every chance that they will resurface.

Ivanovic leads the h2h 5-1, but most have been close and the only meeting on clay, came on the "green" version in Amelia Island, a very different surface to the one at RG. She has looked good the last two years here, making the final last year and is yet to drop a set this time round, infact, she has won the last 5, for the loss of only 13 games. Sounds good doesn't it ? However, aside from Schnyder, the only seeded player she has faced is the #30 ranked Caroline Wozniacki and no one has yet pushed her. Today she will have to work much harder for her money, against her defensively sound opponent.

Jankovic is a couple of years older and has more experience on clay, where she has won 80 matches, almost double Ivanovic's tally. She has won the big title in Rome two years running and has also yet to drop a set enroute to the semis.

With regard to the shoulder/arm injury, there was not much sign in the win over Suarez-Navarro, where she appeared to hit the ball freely,but she flew home to Serbia after the game for treatment, so there must be something in it. Having said that it did not trouble her in the game, she had a day of rest yesterday and the weather is forecast to be warmer, with less humidity today, which will definitely help. I cannot take too much notice of this and in any case, Ivanovic had both ankles taped in the quarters and admitted to a small concern about one of them. As I told you earlier in the week, tennis players ALWAYS have something wrong with them, they are a bunch of hypochondriacs !

These two know each other very well, Ivanovic will be the agressor and will be tring to keep to her oppent's forehand,as much as possible. JJ will be the more defensive and looking to play extended rallies. If she can stay close and make Ivanovic think about things, especially the serve ,Jankovic can make a mockery of these odds, I certainly think she is very likely to trade lower in running.

Therefore, I am taking her at 3.45 on the exchanges and am likely to trade out if she takes a set, but will stick with it, for the purposes of the email selection.

4.5 points Jankovic to beat Ivanovic 3.45 Betfair.

Good Luck.


I had a nice 4.0 winner on the tennis yesterday, which secured a profit on the day, my main football bet was "washed out", so stakes returned.

Subscribers are having a great run, with six winning weeks from the last seven and are already in a strong position this week and also have a solid outright bet at Roland Garros still going well and offering a big payday at juicy odds.

Today, I have previewed three matches on the email service and will also be sending Part 3 of my look at Euro 2008, later in the day. I will be posting a selection , or two, on the blog shortly, so please check back.

Good Luck.

Play is underway in Paris and the full quarter final line ups, are now known ....



Personally, I find the women's event more interesting, the Safina-Dementieva match is really intriguing and I have both, a strong opinion there and also in the outright market, where subscribers are already on at a big price.

Aside from the Gael Monfils- David Ferrer match up, the men's quarters are pretty uninspiring and it feels like we are treading water, waiting for Djokovic- Nadal/ Federer- Nadal.

On the basis that "little fishes are sweet", I will put a bet up for this afternoon's action, odds were already low and have come in for support this morning, but I do think that it is a winner, so ........


Huge gulf in class between these two and probably very different ambitions, from here on in. CSN will be delighted to have made the quarters, which was surely beyond her wildest dreams, for Jankovic, this is a major opportunity to win a Grand Slam.

I expect the Serbian to progress and it should not take too long. In her last 28 starts on the surface, she has won 24 and only four players have taken a set off her, with only Justine Henin winning in straight sets. She is clearly, one of the two or three favourites and is very comfortable on clay.

Let's cover two concerns, Jankovic had flu last month, she is still suffering a little from the after effects, as you will no doubt see at change of ends. Also, she has had treatment on her shoulder/arm in the last two games, I am not worried about this, she will have had 48 hours of treatment if necessary and it clearly did not trouble her too much against Radwanska, following 3 minutes of manipulation, so, two days rest/massage should have solved the problem. If the weather is a little warmer today, it will also help, as the damp conditions over the weekend were not ideal.

Tennis players ALWAYS have some injury concerns and Jankovic, usually has more than most, tbh it probably helps her game, to have something else to focus on and remember, the girls on the WTA are tough ! It is a cut throat world, far more brutal than the ATP Tour where lots of players are friends, that is not always the case in the women's locker room ! It will take more than a minor injury to stop Jankovic reaching the semis and I simply cannot see this taking longer than two sets.

5.5 points Jankovic to win 2-0 sets 1.70 general quote.... NOW 1.62

Good Luck.

I did intend to post a selection on the blog today, but felt unable to in the end. Quite a few of you joined the email service over the weekend and upon reflection, it seemed unfair to make my strongest bet of the day, free for everyone, on what was for some, their first day as a subscriber.

I will make up for this later in the week. Hopefully, some of you took note of my post on Maria Sharapova, which appeared here on Friday (see below). She only needs a Roland Garros title to complete a career Grand Slam, but it is becoming increasingly hard (impossible) to see her ever having the game to win here, to use her own analogy, on clay, she moves like a cow on skates !

Good day for those that took the newsletter plunge, there was a 5.5 point profit on my two tennis bets, the football selection was a winner and we took a position on one of the outright markets, which already offers the opportunity to take a profit. Those were Monday's four selections.

Tomorrow, in addition to the newsletter, I will be sending out Part 2 of my Euro 2008 preview, which includes two 8 point selections, regular readers will know that one is rare, two are about as common as a full house at Griffin Park !

Anyone joining the email service this week, full details are on the website
will also receive the full Euro 2008 preview, the third and final section of which, will be sent out on Thursday.

Good Luck.


So much to look forward to this week, finally, Euro 2008 is here, along with a host of gambling opportunities and we have the climax of the French Open tennis and a number of World Cup qualifiers, so no shortage of options to get stuck into.

I have previewed four events on the newsletter today and am hoping to carry one of these ,on the blog this afternoon.

Back Later.

Sunday, June 01, 2008


Both bets posted on the blog eased home, Bologna won 1-0 and under three goals, there had to be four for us to lose, was NEVER in doubt.

In the Schnyder-Srebotnik tennis match, there were no doubts about my feelings and I told you that the bookmakers odds were wrong, my selection, available at 2.64, won in straight sets ! She had 14 break points compared to the "favourite's" three.

My only other selection that has so far started today and given only to subscribers, was my strongest selection of the day and a winner after 19 minutes, that's right, not looked good, but had already won after less than a quarter of the match ! I knew the conditions this match was going to be played in and so did my members.

I don't blame you for not subscribing to the email service, after all, this information, which would have been in your inbox early this morning, would have cost you whopping 93p (under $2) as a subscriber!

Pretty sure that you can find better value for your money !

For any of you that can't, details of the daily newsletter can be found on

Good Luck with your bets this week.

SERIE B ....

I sent a couple of bets to susbribers this morning for the final round in Serie B, both have been well backed, but having indicated that I would put something on the site, have included one below, along with basic notes. Remember, the only way to get all my output and the best of the odds,is to subscribe to the email service details are on ,2.03 about a 1.79 shot gives you a heck of an advantage over the pack.


Hosts will be promoted if they win and Pisa will not want to collect any injuries ahead of the playoffs. Bologna have been priced at sub 1.20 and will win, but I hardly see them putting the visitors to the sword, that is not the Bolgna way really, they have scored fewer goals than anyother side in the top 8 and conceded fewest, also, the last thing that they want is to upset Pisa and get them "interested". I see a one or maybe two goal win at most and am going to go "under" the 3 goal line.

5 points "under" 3 goals 2.03 asian line..... now 1.79.

Back later.


I am reliably led to believe that this whole Ronaldo for Real Madrid story and Sir Alex's threat to leave him sitting in the stands next season, rather than let him join the Spanish champions is all about money ..... surprise, surprise !

Apparently, the Portugese superstar has no intention of leaving Old Trafford in the immedite future, but he and especially his agent, feel that as the "best player in the world", his current contract leaves him short changed and he/they want to renegotiate terms. Let's face it, if you have to go to the boss and ask for a pay rise, Ronaldo is never going to be in a better bargaining position.

Back Shortly.



Odds are wrong here, win or lose, just cannot agree with Srebotnik's price, where the bookmakers have gone overboard about her defeat of Serena Williams. Schnyder has had a very slow start to 2008 but has shown recent signs of improvement and has superior clay court form to her opponent. The Swiss player is 74-40 lifetime on the surface and it normally takes a top ranked player to send her packing, for example last year she lost to Ivanovic in the Berlin quarters, Jankovic in the Rome semis and Sharapova 9-7 in the third set, in a 4th round match at Roland Garros. Her Slovenian opponent is 55-44 lifetime on dirt and has 16 wins at RG to her name, compared to Schnyder's 28 , which include a quarter final appearance. Have to side with her to claim another.

5 points Schnyder to beat Srebotnik 2.64 Betfair.

Good Luck.


I have covered five events on the email service today, three football matches and one preview each covering tennis and golf, where I am looking to continue my excellent run.

Not always looking for the obvious, I have selections at 7.0 and 2.60 + and nothing below 1.82. Hopefully, it will be possible to post something on the blog today, so please check back later.

Good Luck.
