Question of the Week

Should the League 2 season be suspended?


Due a win!

Beat the Bookies: Week 22

By: Rob Sedgwick
Date: 06/01/2009

TWO late goals by Darlo against Bournemouth might have done Grimsby Town a favour however they cost Beat the Bookies a much needed winner and meant that both last week's tips lost!

Home > 2008-2009 Season > Beat the Bookies > Week 22

Macclesfield v Port Vale There's not much to separate the two sides in recent games and both sides look destined for a dull second half of the season with little to play for. The bookies favour Macclesfield who won at Port Vale a few weeks ago in the cup, but the Silkmen could well be suffering a cup hangover themselves after their heroics against Everton and Vale are worth a punt with Sky Bet at 12/5. Selection: Away Win

Notts County v Exeter Exeter are having a great season and rarely lose home or away. The bookies cannot split the two sides, but County have lost four from five, and the other game was an undeserved win at Grimsby. City should pick up another three points. (6/4 Bet365) Selection: Away Win

Accrington Stanley v Darlington. Darlo finally got a win last week against Bournemouth and face another side who have lost every game recently apart from a win against Grimsby! Darlo should likewise pick up another three points. (6/4 Bet365). Selection: Away Win

Bournemouth v Bradford Two inconsistent sides face each other at Dean Court, with both sides looking to win for different reasons. City draw too many games but are clinging onto a promotion place mainly due to the teams around them losing. Bournemouth's response to the board and managerial changes remains to be seen, but with City's squad and support they are always worth backing at odds of (6/4 Bet365) against a team who have lost their last three games. Selection: Away Win

Bury v Barnet They may be at opposite ends of the table but in recent games Barnet have picked up more points than Bury. OK Bury may have been playing the top teams during that time, but Barnet's 2-0 win at Bournemouth straight after dismissing Paul Fairclough is a hint of better times to come and they may well be worth a speculative bet at 9/2 Bet365 Selection: Away Win

This season we will be trying out three different betting strategies:

  • Fixed Odds - as per last year
  • Spread Betting on the Mini Performance Index with IG Index (25 points for a win, 10 for a draw, 10 for a goal)
  • The Monkey (betting on Town to win each game 3-1, i.e. the complete absence of any betting strategy).

Recommended Fixed Odds Bets

  • 1. Exeter to beat Notts County . (6/4, Bet365),
  • 2. Bradford to beat Bournemouth. (6/4, Bet365),

    Recommended Spread Bet

      No bet this week.
