Question of the Week

Will Grimsby be relegated?

Beat the Bookies: Week 12

By: Rob Sedgwick
Date: 25/10/2012

TWO winners out of five last week saw another healthy return for the weekend. Boro's win at Brighton was the biggest earner, and Ebbsfleet's late winner against Woking saw another. Shame Town couldn't grab a second half equaliser to make it 3-3!

Town have a good away record but their home record is in danger of becoming average. If you'd bet on Grimsby to win every game you'd be quite a bit down by now. The value has all been in the away win or draw. This week Macclesfield are out of form themselves so it's a hard game to call where the value lies. Town at around Evens at home does not particularly tempt. If in doubt do nowt and look elsewhere, as we have done.

Premier League

  • Stoke v Sunderland - away win (4.57, Pinnacle). Both clubs have drawn a lot of games. Sunderland have lost just once. However Stoke have only won one game all season. Yet most bookies have them around the Evens mark, a few even go odds on! It looks to be quite an even game on paper, so the value has to lie with the away win.


  • Leicester v Crystal Palace - away win (7.11, Pinnacle). Both clubs are doing very well at the moment and Leicester have to be strong favourites because they are at home. Both this price looks just daft! Leicester have lost 3 times this season, they are beatable, and strong opposition like Palace have to have a better chance than that.

    League One

  • Tranmere v Preston - away win (3.75, Boylesports). We've tipped Tranmere to win a few times this season, and won, now they have lost 2 on the bounce the time to oppose them has come! Rovers didn't play that badly in there defeats, but in Preston they play top opposition and if they have lost some confidence they could get beaten again.

    League Two

  • Chesterfield v Barnet - away win (6.2, Marathon). Is the Barnet recovery starting early this season? Edgar Davids has triggered a resurgence at Underhill. A crushing win and a good away draw, followed by another tough away trip. The form book suggests the bookies odds are a bit long.

    Blue Square Premier

  • Dartford v Mansfield - away win (3.15, Smarkets). Dartford have wobbled in recent weeks in the league, and suffered an FA Cup exit at home in midweek. Mansfield, the professional club, may benefit from the extra rest they had from not playing during the week.
