IT would be easy to go betting mad this weekend but my advice is to keep to low or preferably level stakes.
A glance at the coupon shows all the old favourites but form is king and there’s little or nothing to go on.
I’ve made a good start to the season and last Saturday I had five homes at 8-1, the top treble at 5-2 and a 23-20 Super Single.
Last night’s Super Single success on Rangers -1 made it one loss in 10 but there was disappointment for double followers with Dundalk inexplicably failing to beat 10-man Longford at home.
I’m not taking too many chances this weekend and sticking to the tried and tested. Here my the top tips from today’s Daily Record – aways, draws, etc will be back next weekend.
Separate Scottish and English antepost picks are up and there is reasoning for many of my Scottish picks.
I’ve mentioned all my title selections before but at a glance I’m on Celtic, Rangers, Dunfermline and Clyde in Scotland and Chelsea, Middlesbrough, Wigan ew and Portsmouth in England.
For top scorer I’m chancing Memphis Depay ew at 33-1 – let’s hope he can reproduce the form that brought him 39 goals for PSV last season.
And as far as Premier League relegation is concerned I fear most for Bournemouth and at bigger prices would back West Ham or possibly Leicester.
Good luck with all your bets today and don’t feel you have to use maximum stakes. August is traditionally a tough month but it should be easier to predict matches after everyone’s played four or five times.
And if you have a couple of spare quid or play the lottery have a got at Betfred’s new Scoop6 contest to win £1million or put £2 on William Hill’s £50million jackpot coupon.
This one involves placing the Premier League teams in the correct finishing order 1-20. I hope someone gets lucky and there are two £100k consolation prizes.
Betfred are also again pushing their popular Double Delight and Hat-trick promotion and if you do first scorers check it out. And with goals galore they are giving you enhanced odds on both teams to score accumulators.
