Beat the Bookies: Week 8

By: Rob Sedgwick
Date: 30/09/2011

LAST week was definitely a case of the almost! Coventry missed a last minute penalty and Tamworth scored an injury time equaliser - otherwise there would have been a very bountiful harvest.

Premier League Tip

Blackburn v Man City - home win (6.5, Victor Chandler). It's always worth opposing the European teams straight after their games, especially Man City who had a bad defeat in the midweek game and have had their week overshadowed by the Tevez incident.

Championship Tip

Blackpool v Bristol City - away win (5.0, Bwin). Bristol City have not been that far off in recent games. They probably haven't got the results they should of done, but Blackpool are a very beatable side these days and City could pick up an invaluable away win here.

League One Tip

Stevenage v Scunthorpe - home win (2.4, William Hills). Scunny to lose is always a good bet this season. The bookies have overpriced them virtually every game largely because they were a Championship side last season. They may not be in League One for long, but they're more likely to go out the back door than the front.

League Two Tip

Crawley v Plymouth - away win (10.5, Victor Chandler). Who would have imagined a couple of years ago that an away win in this game would be nearly 10/1! That's a daft price in League Two for any came, and Crawley have had a couple of bad defeats recently. Plymouth also won last week so their fans should come out in force for the trip to Sussex. Green Army!

Blue Square Premier Tip

Wrexham v Ebbsfleet - away win (6.0, Bet365). Wrexham lost in the last set of games and Ebbsfleet won 3-0! So on very current form 5-1 looks a snip!
