Football Tips // 21.01.17


With a bigger 28/1 6 fold posted late last night – this is just a small addition, with slightly less tips and better value in each selection, giving around a 20/1 ish four-fold.

Some good looking teams involved this week – including Plymouth, who are immense away from home – who play Cheltenham, who are struggling this season and look like potential relegation candidates – that is where we start:

Cheltenham vs Plymouth: Plymouth Win @ 7/5 (League Two, 1500 KO)

I watched Cheltenham in action on Tuesday night, and I can easily say I was not impressed. Even against a half strength Bradford side, they rarely threatened – and in the end it was one mistake from a corner that cost them in a 1-0 loss. Plymouth have won 8 of 11 away games this season, and against a struggling Cheltenham side – I can only see another win, with 7/5 being very generous odds!





WBA vs Sunderland: WBA -1 Goal Asian Handicap @ 11/10 (Premier League, 1500 KO)

WBA have been the sort of surprise package of the Premier League this season – looking very handy at times with the combination of Chadli, Rondon and Phillips – not to mention a host of others who have been very effective in their team. With Sunderland missing over 10 players through injury and AFCON involvement – and WBA having a clean bill of health, they could rack 3-4 goals on the team who have lost 8 of 10 away games this season. The three mentioned should have a huge impact, with Rondon being a big threat. The handicap is a risk, but add the asian aspect and it looks good value.

Rochdale vs Oxford: Rochdale Win @ 23/20 (League One, 1500 KO)

Oxford may have had a decent spell of away form of late, but consider they were playing Bury, Rotherham, Southend and Gillingham – some of the worst sides in the Football League this season, and form wise – those who have little of it. Rochdale on the other hand look like they could go up – 10 wins from 13 home this season has seen them rocket into the playoffs, and at just over evens they look great value here.

Newcastle vs Rotherham: Newcastle Over 2.5 Team Goals @ 1/1 (Championship, 1500 KO)

Despite the loss of in-form Dwight Gayle, I still see Newcastle racking up 3-4 goals in this one. Rotherham are winless all season away from home, with 12 losses in 13 games. Newcastle’s home form hasn’t been brilliant, with 8 wins and 4 defeats, and with Atsu and Gayle among several missing, Sammy Ameobi may get a reprieve. The key is Jonjo Shelvey – back from a 5 game ban, he pulled the strings on Wednesday in a 3-1 win over Birmingham – and with Murphy a leathal striker at this level, Matt Ritche supplying the bullets and Shelvey pulling the strings from midfield again – the Magpies should send themselves top again at least for a week.

This pays just over 20/1 with Bet365.

Best of luck!
