The final set of 2016 games are upon us! It’s a bit of a mish mash, with games spread over the next 5 days between the English leagues, but it’s football all the same. Our 50/1 handicap accumulator has been posted, this is a nice double for this evening’s games.
It pays around 5/1 – a hefty price considering the form of the two sides!
Brighton vs Cardiff: Brighton -1 Goal Handicap @ 11/8 (1945 KO, Friday – Championship)
Brighton are the form side of the Championship – toppling Newcastle to reach the top spot, and seemingly destined for the Premier League after two seasons of disappointment. They are in fine form, four wins in a row and rarely challenged at home. Cardiff on the other hand are a decent side, but away from home concede far too many. Even with a decent scoring record, they are unlikely to challenge Brighton’s back four and all I can see is a 2/3-0 loss.
Rochdale vs Shrewsbury: Rochdale -1 Goal Handicap @ 8/5 (1945 KO, Friday – League One)
Similarly to Brighton, Rochdale are one of the sides of League One in the best form. 9 wins in 12 at home – those 9 coming in a row! They have scored a lot of goals – regularly battering teams 4-0. Shrewsbury, well the less said the better. Sitting in the bottom four, 7 losses in 12 away and of late even worse. 8/5 is a very good price!
That’s all for now – tomorrow’s double will be added a little later this evening, and if these two do the job, it could be a very happy new year!
Best of luck
