Football Tips // 31.12.16


Not a great night last night – a void, thanks to Brighton vs Cardiff being called off, and Rochdale conceding late on to cost us the -1 handicap. We are aiming to finish the year with a bang – four high priced bets to make a massive acca!

I have used two BTTS + Win bets, and two First Goalscorers:

Bristol Rovers vs Wimbledon: Br Rovers Win + BTTS @ 11/4 (1500 KO, League One)

Rovers are in high scoring form – and their last 5 wins at home have all been BTTS too. Wimbledon are decent on the road, but can concede plenty at times. With Matty Taylor in great form – I’d back the home side to win this and concede.





Notts County vs Carlisle: Carlisle Win + BTTS @ 3/1 (1500 KO, League Two)

Carlisle have still only lost once all season, but have drawn 10/22 games (winning 11). Their away form isn’t great, but Notts County have lost multiple games in a row and are in terrible form – so this is the perfect game for them to pick up their title challenge. Carlisle’s last 8 wins have all been Win + BTTS which is also a great stat to back this one up.

Man Utd vs Middlesbrough: Zlatan Ibrahimovic FGS @ 12/5 (1500 KO)

Chelsea vs Stoke: Diego Costa FGS @ 12/5 (1500 KO)

Both Costa and Ibrahimovic are the league’s top two scorers (in that order) – Costa had Boxing Day off after being suspended, while Ibra grabbed a couple of goals in his continuing good form. With both sides being overwhelming favourites today, they are the top picks for this market obviously. Both 12/5, both great value!

Overall, this bet pays around 175/1 – the goalscorer double pays 11/1, while the Win + BTTS double pays 14/1. Both good value for me!

Best of luck!
