HullShaker’s Tips – Back The Strongest to flex some muscle in Bolivia

Posted on: 07 Aug 2021

I’M heading to Bolivia for the main bets today as a back-on-form Strongest outfit take on a home side whose fate was probably already sealed long before their current form hit the skids… SAN JOSÉ VS. THE STRONGEST (10.15pm) San Jose play out of the Estadio Jesus Bermudez situated in the relatively low lying city of Oruro way south of the […]

HullShaker’s Tips – The Only Way is County Durham…and Essex!

Posted on: 28 Dec 2020

MY main bets hail from the English Lower Leagues as Darlo take on a poorly Blyth side in a game already highlighted by Jamie Kennedy on his new acca page. I’m also including an all-Essex derby game featuring 2 sides hovering around the drop zone but (like Darlo) with plenty of games in hand! But first, a quick stop-off in […]

HullShakers Tips – Sol Survivor In Asuncion

Posted on: 13 Dec 2020

THERE’S quite a number of South American games that hold a certain level of appeal this evening but this one stands out for some potentially erroneous Paraguayan pricing from the bookmakers… SOL DE AMÉRICA VS. 12 DE OCTUBRE (9.15pm) Bookies have SDA odds on favourites here but I’m not convinced; they have won just 1 of their last 5 meetings […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Play Your Cards Right in South America

Posted on: 13 Nov 2020

IT’S been a while since I’ve been able to post in full but currently quarantined so find myself with that rare gift of time on my hands coupled with the even rarer gift of South American football with a chance to play the card markets! CHILE VS PERU (11.00pm) Those that have followed South American domestic football down the years […]

HullShaker’s Tips – The Icemen Cometh

Posted on: 18 Aug 2020

THERE’S a small matter of a certain Champions League Qualifier that I just can’t let lie tomorrow… CELTIC VS. KR (7.45pm) I’ll potentially get pelters from a few but don’t underestimate KR tomorrow – sure they may not win but they will give a good account of themselves! No question as to the size difference between the sides but the quality […]

HullShakers Tips – Corner the market in Iceland

Posted on: 15 Aug 2020

ICELANDIC sports have been back under Government lockdown for a few weeks but are now underway and that’s where I’m heading for the main bets with a cheeky betbuilder on City’s game thrown in for good measure! VALUR VS. KA (5.00pm) Valur are red hot favourites here and, whilst they ought to win, I’m not so sure it will be one-way […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Go For Goals In The Battle of the Barrios

Posted on: 13 Aug 2020

THE BAIRRO OBRERO region of Paraguay’s capital City Asuncion plays host to a match featuring two sides with plenty of history between them this evening and I’m forecasting goals with some pretty solid value behind them! CERRO PORTEÑO VS. CLUB GUARANÍ  It’s been a mixed start to the campaign from both sides but the standout stats are based around each […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Corners could offer a Porteno in a storm

Posted on: 02 Aug 2020

HUMIDITY, heavy rain, high winds and other adverse weather conditions can play a significant part in football betting and I usually check ahead of the more far-flung games as it is one of the many variables that overseas bettors should factor into making their selections. As it is, the central South American sub-tropical Asuncion climate reads 44% humidity…that’s 3% less than […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Handicap markets could be a Léttir from Heaven!

Posted on: 29 Jul 2020

JUST back from a lovely few days away in Berwick and Eyemouth – plenty of drinking, a bit of fishing but luckily no sign of the crabs that poor Craneguy is plagued by when he visits these remote coastal locations… My first instinct when looking at today’s card was to look into Afrika Reykjavik’s game, they are potentially one of the […]

Brazilian bet could beat the bookies

Posted on: 28 Jun 2020

MANY moons ago, there used to be a kebab shop in Bury called the Spice of Life. But, after a worryingly large number of post-Roxy revellers ended up shi*ting through the eye of a needle as a result of partaking in their food, it was affectionately known forever afterwards as The Spice of Death! I digress a bit but variety […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Welcome back to Bolivia

Posted on: 26 Jan 2020

CLOSE but no cigar last night in Orura but I’m keeping the faith in Bolivia and paying a visit to Cochabamba as old favourites Wilstermann head into the first home match of their Apertura campaign… JORGE WILSTERMANN VS. GUABIRÁ (9.15pm) Jorge hardly got off to a flyer as they went down 1-0 against a Nacional outfit who will most likely cause […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Back Crewe and York for New Year Resolution

Posted on: 01 Jan 2020

HAPPY New Year to all the site members and here’s to a cracking 2020! I’m looking to start the ’20’s with a bang in the form of a team goals double hailing from high-flying sides in League Two and The National League North… YORK CITY VS. BRADFORD PA York were my lower league antepost pick last season but after a […]

HullShaker’s Tips – It’s Grim up North

Posted on: 22 Dec 2019

STARE due Southeast across The Humber on a clear day and a keen eye will pick put the dark shadows of a once powerful but long-forgotten town. This is no ancient Aztec settlement though and the word civilisation could be stretching it – in fact, it’s true that nobody has ever met anyone from Grimsby – it’s almost as if […]

English League One Tips – Posh can bury Bolton

Posted on: 14 Dec 2019

LOSING my football club has been a humbling experience and, I’m not too ashamed to say, an emotional one – Bury were a massive part of my life and between the age of 8 and 18, it’s fair to say they were my life. Of all my memories, there was nothing like the Bury/Bolton derbies in the 80s and 90s […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Back late goals in Bolivar

Posted on: 01 Dec 2019

BOLIVIAN football is back with a bang and I’m heading to capital city La Paz on the search for goals…it’s one of my favourite stomping grounds and if you can get your head around it’s quirks and penchant for red cards, it’s a cracking league to follow! BOLÍVAR VS. ALWAYS READY (8.00pm) Bolivar’s Estadio Hernando Siles stadium has been host […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Olimpia Gold in Asunción derby

Posted on: 24 Nov 2019

CRACKING looking South American card and one bet stands out in Paraguay with potential for an additional btts acca hailing from the mean streets of Peru… OLIMPIA VS. CERRO PORTEÑO (8.00pm): My Paraguayan favourites Cerro have restored some form of late but it’s not the same team that lit up SA last year! This Acunsión derby will be tasty but my […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Look into the Cristal ball

Posted on: 17 Nov 2019

TWO games that appeal this afternoon and I’ll be heading to the Peruvian top-flight for the Nap before heading back to the UK for the Nb… SPORTING CRISTAL VS. ALIANZA UNIVERSIDAD (4.00pm) Cristal can close the gap to Alianza Lima down to 1 point as the Peruvian giants look to home in on top-spot. The hosts have been on fire […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Can Santos make the corners count?

Posted on: 31 Oct 2019

I’M taking a leaf out of resident corner guru Craig Alves’ book – he can sniff out a Brasilian quicker than a ferret down a trouserleg! SANTOS VS. BAHIA (10.15pm) Santos were THE in-form side and my go to team for goals earlier in the campaign but have since been overtaken and now sit 3rd but with this as a game […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Look out for late show in National League North

Posted on: 30 Oct 2019

I ONCE heard someone describe the Northeast as a “brilliant night out for seedy adventures” but to be fair, the last time I heard from him, he’d been accosted by an angry mob in a cinema during a screening of Brokeback Mountain. Still, enough about poor old Craneguy – I’ve always preferred the evening footballing scene than the alternative night scene […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Peruvian pick appeals

Posted on: 28 Oct 2019

DEEPEST, darkest Peru for me this evening – it’s not the greatest of cards but this one may just offer up some value… UTC CAJAMARCA VS. AYACUCHO (8.30pm): UTC are favourites for this one and, based on H2H’s, I can see why bookies have given them an edge. But, look a little deeper at recent results and there’s a case to […]

HullShaker’s Tips: Goals bet looks to be Maid of Stone

Posted on: 26 Oct 2019

PLENTY to go at on this rain-lashed Saturday but I just can’t help being drawn back to the cold and lonely streets of Kent for this one from the National League South. MAIDSTONE UNITED vs BILLERICAY TOWN Maidstone are in a fine vein of form having won their last 4 matches and scoring 4-4-2-4 goals in the process but, the […]

HullShaker’s Tips – The only way is Essex

Posted on: 22 Oct 2019

I’VE got the old white stilettos packed and ready for a night on the Essex tiles as the bright lights of nearby Southend come calling… BILLERICAY TOWN VS. SUTTON UNITED: FA Cup Qualification action here and ‘Ricay’s 9th placed standing in the National League South isn’t a million miles away from Sutton’s 20th placed National League placement! The hosts have […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Goals message is Cristal clear

Posted on: 20 Oct 2019

TWO bets stand out for me today and I’ll be heading to Peru for a teatime team goals NAP but staying closer to home for the NB and Longshot from Old Trafford… SPORTING CRISTAL VS. PIRATA (5.15pm) There should only be one team walking the plank here and it ought to be a game that Cristal can nail – yes, […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Angels of The North

Posted on: 19 Oct 2019

TODAY sees a much more tempting card after a fairly spartan week and there’s a fair bit to go at – I’ve had a good look through and can’t help being drawn back to this Northern FA Cup qualifying game… GATESHEAD VS. COLNE (3.00pm) Growing up in North Manchester, we’d sometimes need a break from the soot, rain and guns […]

HullShaker’s Tips: Avai got news for you

Posted on: 13 Oct 2019

THINGS have been a little on the crazy side with work the last few weeks and I haven’t the time to post as much as I used to but when I get the chance, I always will as a more detailed write-up helps to clarify my own thoughts! There are two games that catch my eye today and whilst the […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Ice could be nice!

Posted on: 05 Sep 2019

I’M leaving the bright lights of the internationals and sticking with the Northern Lights of Iceland’s 1 Deild! HAUKAR VS. NJARDVÍK (8.15pm) It’s sh*t or bust time for a few teams at the bottom of the 2nd tier and these two are right in the thick of it with just a handful.of games left to save their hides. Normally, games would […]

HullShaker’s Tips – I want to be a part of it – new York, new York!

Posted on: 31 Aug 2019

WELL DONE all on the Dundee derby last night – cracking game, alas my Nap double was a goal short Mr F so can’t claim a winner! Three games (more so specific teams) stand out for me on today’s card and the first two need little introduction as I’ve discussed my thoughts on both several times already this season… GLOUCESTER […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Columbian line looks appealing

Posted on: 29 Aug 2019

IT’S been a long week and with a ridiculous amount of work and my beloved Bury’s demise, I’ve had better times for sure -it’s not the world’s best post but it’s certainly a game that may pique the interest of any Night Owls out there… ATLÉTICO NACIONAL VS. DEPORTES TOLIMA (1200am): In brief, this one could come down to home […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Romanians wage war on Ware

Posted on: 26 Aug 2019

LOOKING at this one for tomorrow and some confusion over whether it’s the fixtured league game or a cup replay – bookmakers and soccerway say the latter whilst the club’s Twitter feed say the former! I’d usually tend to trust the club’s info but it’s more likely that the cup replay would take precedence – either way there’s a damn […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Back both to score on Bank Holiday bonanza

Posted on: 26 Aug 2019

THREE selections on this Bank Holiday card – the main bets hail from Iceland with a Longshot including 3 games from the ENL. Each of the games has a solid recent and historic picture for both sides scoring so fingers crossed it’s a day of goals! FH vs. Briedablik (7.00) Valur vs Stjarnan (8.15) Both teams to score double (1.29/1, […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Rock La Paz bar

Posted on: 25 Aug 2019

La Paz is calling once again – it’s time to dig out the oxygen masks and climbing gear and take that long and winding road up through The Andes… THE STRONGEST VS. JORGE WILSTERMANN (8.00pm) Of all the South American sides, these two have a particular place in my heart and have featured in some of the most insane matches […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Super, smashing, great for Bowen’s Tigers

Posted on: 20 Aug 2019

I’M STICKING close to home and looking for a goalscoring bullseye at The KCOM Stadium this evening as this War of The Roses clash sees trawlers and textiles come head to head… HULL CITY VS. BLACKBURN (7.45pm): I’ve been quietly impressed by City’s start to the campaign and the fans I’ve spoken to also share a sense of optimism about […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Who wants to live Thor-ever

Posted on: 16 Aug 2019

POSTED prices early morning for this one and, as predicted, the odds are tightening for home team goals – hopefully anyone interested was able to take advantage of the bigger prices as I knew I wouldn’t get this write-up done until now… THÓR VS. HAUKAR (7.00pm) All about the hosts here and it’s a fitting name for the Nordic side […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Goals at the double!

Posted on: 15 Aug 2019

TWO games that catch my eye for goals this evening – one taken from The Icelandic Cup with the other hailing from The Costa Rican top-flight… VÍKINGUR REYKJAVÍK VS. BREIDABLIK (8.15pm) Plenty of action between these two over the years and, whilst Vikingur have home advantage, Briedablik have the best current form. 70% of the last 13 H2H’s have seen […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned

Posted on: 13 Aug 2019

TONIGHT’S card is either an embarrassment of riches or, if it goes tits up, it’s the old adage of too much choice! Either way, there’s plenty to go at and I’ve picked out three bets; a rare and risky ‘unders’ bet from The Icelandic Ladies, a tasty looking encounter from The National League and a bonkers goals longshot from all […]

HullShaker’s Tips – I believe I can Fyl

Posted on: 12 Aug 2019

THERE may be mileage in backing the hosts in this Icelandic encounter – all roads lead to Reykjavìk and, in tonight’s case, The Würth Völlurinn… FYLKIR VS. GRINDAVÍK (8.15pm): Two sides not in the best of shape but I think the hosts ought to be grabbing the points – their home form is actually pretty good despite their lowly league position. […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Rowe-ler Coasters to find form

Posted on: 10 Aug 2019

HOW many times have we said that big cards aren’t always the best cards? Yes, there’s loads of choice but that doesn’t necessarily mean that you home in on the games and markets that you maybe would on a smaller set of fixtures! Sometimes, even with so much choice, you have to go with instinct and, despite being stung by […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Corner the market at Anfield

Posted on: 09 Aug 2019

SHOCKER yesterday in Iceland and everything looked primed ready for a decent outcome until Tindastol decided to play up away from home for the first time in a long time – funny old game football…well, about as funny as piles. Frustrating as hell but need to move on! LIVERPOOL VS. NORWICH (8.00pm): The English Premier League is back with a […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Icelandic Knights and Northern Lights

Posted on: 08 Aug 2019

I’VE always believed that betting should be about looking for any edge over the bookies and not just about taking on the more obvious games and leagues – yes, there’s plenty to be said for it, but very often, the real value lies in those harder to reach places where there is less collective knowledge generating the prices! There’s never […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Rowe Rowe Rowe the vote

Posted on: 06 Aug 2019

IT’S great to have the English Lower Leagues back in action and three sides who I think will have strong campaigns feature in this evenings selections with the main event coming from Mill Farm… AFC FYLDE VS. CHORLEY I included Fylde in my Antepost bets and, having come close two years running, it could be third time lucky – they […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Song for my sugar-spun misters

Posted on: 02 Aug 2019

IT’S a rare occasion that I’d dive down into the depths of the Bolivian domestic leagues but this game, hailing from Section C of The Nacional B, whets the appetite for goals potential – especially for those with a sweet tooth… INDEPENDIENTE PETROLERO VS. REAL TOMAYAPO (8.30pm) Sucre based Independiente Petrolero may not command the gravitas and standing of their […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Reykjavik romp on the cards

Posted on: 31 Jul 2019

THERE’S only one pain that comes close to that felt when losing a loved one and it’s a pain felt by many men with young kids. Having to sit through a soft-play party with a hangover is potentially one of the most harrowing ordeals that modern man may have to face and it’s not a fate I’d wish on my […]

HullShaker’s Tips – They think it’s Sol over

Posted on: 29 Jul 2019

EVERYTHING went to plan in Brasil for yesterday’s main bets and I’ll be jetting 900 miles due west and touching down in the Paraguayan capital of Asuncion for another shot of South American goal action… SOL DE AMÉRICA VS. LIBERTAD (10.00pm) SDA’s games have long been one of the star attractions (for me at least) of following The Paraguayan ‘Division […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Avai got news for you

Posted on: 28 Jul 2019

SOUTH America was kind to me yesterday with both the Nap and Longshot landing – hopefully, there’s more to come this evening as I take on a Brazilian that ought to be anything but a close shave! SANTOS VS. AVAÍ (8.00pm) Santos know a win here will see them leaprog Palmeiras into pole position in Brasil’s Serie A – what […]

HullShaker’s Tips: Gold-plated chance of goals for Olimpians

Posted on: 27 Jul 2019

SATURDAY looks like an all-South American affair for me with the main bets hailing from Asuncion and a back-up goals long shot featuring games in Bolivia, Chile, Venezuela and, of course, Paraguay! OLIMPIA VS RIVER PLATE (11.00pm) All about the hosts at home here – aside from a couple of Copa Libertadores defeats, they are unbeaten at home in 25 consecutive […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Ready, set, go for goals

Posted on: 25 Jul 2019

TWO games that catch my eye today; the Nap,  Nb and Longshot are all taken by siding with goals in Bolivia whilst a tea-time dabble with the Finnish Ladies league may bring an added bonus… ALWAYS READY VS. ORIENTE PETROLERO (8.00pm) Straightforward and simple – I wish – but I’m going for goals here and there’s plenty to indicate a […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Travellers won’t ace this test

Posted on: 24 Jul 2019

AFTER a total crock yesterday, I’m looking to get back on track with a Scandinavian and Nordic goals hunt  – first off, I’ll be heading to the goal-haven that is the Finnish Kolmonen for a tea-time tip… I-KISSAT VS. ACE (1800KO): This could be many things for the travelling side but ace most likely be one of the words used to […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Mix and match in Iceland

Posted on: 22 Jul 2019

ALL roads lead to Iceland for me this evening and although my initial thoughts were to go for Briedablik goals, the more I look, the less I like it! In fact, current form and more historic meetings point to underwhelming totals for both goals and corners and have led to me putting together a rare unders bet-builder for the NB. […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Travellers to maintain their Olimpic record

Posted on: 19 Jul 2019

PUTTING all of your betting eggs in one basket isn’t always the best way to go but that’s the direction I’m taking this evening as I head to the Paraguyan capital city Asuncion for a potential derby cracker… NACIONAL VS. OLIMPIA (11.00pm KO) It’s the away team whom I’m siding with and although the temptation to go with both teams […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Double shot with plenty of Ice

Posted on: 16 Jul 2019

TUESDAY sees a pretty lively card in the Icelandic 1 Deild and I’m doubling up two of the earlier kicks-offs to form today’s picks… KEFLAVÍK VS. MAGNI (7.00pm) THÓR VS. NJARDVÍK (7.00pm) Both host sides are clear  favourites to win and with good reason; their opposition’s away record in particular is pretty grim with Thor conceding 6 across the last […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Mileage in backing Petrolheads

Posted on: 14 Jul 2019

YESTERDAY’S Bolivian bets are on ice until Monday and did put up a couple of late btts picks but they were a total write off! Sunday is an interesting card with most of the key SA leagues clocking back on and a smattering of half-decent Nordic games thrown in for good measure. I’ve looked through the lot and settled on […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Always Ready for a bit of a gamble

Posted on: 13 Jul 2019

IT’S been a great week and looking to make it 4 successful NAP and NBs on the bounce with a a helping hand from the return of The Bolivian Primera! ALWAYS READY VS. SPORT BOYS (8.00pm) Destination Estadio Municipal El Alto for me this evening as the Bolivian Clauara kicks into gear – there is massive favouritism for the hosts […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Keflavik could surprise the bookies

Posted on: 11 Jul 2019

SOMETIMES there are easier bets to take on but real (potential) value usually comes from taking a calculated risk and that’s my steer for tonight’s selections – hopefully fortune favours the brave… FJÖLNIR VS. KEFLAVÍK (8.15pm) Prices are as short as 4/11 for Fjolnir here and whilst I understand how those prices have been generated on recent standings and form, […]

HullShaker’s Ante post Selections – It could be grim up North!

Posted on: 09 Jul 2019

IT’S that time of year when thoughts turn to ante post selections and two bets stand out for me with a common theme emerging – The Mighty Shakers potential (and highly likely) freefall! With gaffer Ryan Lowe gone and talismanic playmaker Danny Mayor joining him at Argyle, the future looks bleak for Bury amongst our ongoing financial shenanigans – although […]

HullShaker’s Tips – KR OK to KO hosts

Posted on: 06 Jul 2019

THIS one may just see home side ÍBV contract a serious case of IBS as they come face to face with The Urvalsdeield’s top side in KR Reykjavik! ÍBV VS. KR (5.00pm) KR were my pre-season fancies after a really strong showing towards the end of the last campaign and have justified that confidence with a sh*t-hot start; 26 points […]

HullShaker’s Tips: It’s all going to be Magni-ficent

Posted on: 29 Jun 2019

FUNNY thing this weather on these islands of ours – I left Costa Del Hull around 18.00 Friday in scorching sunshine only to arrive 40 miles up the coast at beautiful Filey surrounded by grey clouds and a piss-cold North Sea fret. Still, it’s good to get a wee break even if it means sharing a tin prefab with two […]

HullShaker’s Tips: Copa Cards for Cardozo and Co

Posted on: 16 Jun 2019

I’TS been a great run of form with the NAPs this last three weeks and my thoughts are turning to South America to see if I can extend the run further this evening. PARAGUAY vs QATAR (8pm) Copa America action here as these two go head to head in their Group B opener – the natural perception would be for […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Danger – High Voltage!

Posted on: 14 Jun 2019

No time for a full write-up but I’m swerving the (currently) inconsistent Icelandic Urvalsdeild in favour of a late Brasilian… JUVENTUDE VS. VOLTA REDONDA (2300KO): Juventude are favourites here but I suspect the visitors will make their mark at some point in this Serie C clash. Having dropped from B to C last season, the hosts will be a tough test […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Don’t think twice in the land of ice

Posted on: 13 Jun 2019

I’M leaving the torrential monsoons of Humberside for the relatively balmy conditions in Reykjavik where it’s sunny and a few degrees warmer than it is here… FJÖLNIR VS. VÍKINGUR ÓLAFSVÍK It’s not too bad a card in this evening’s 2nd tier but one game looks to have the edge for goals as two of the Urvalsdeild’s old foes come head […]

HullShaker’s Tips: Lurgan’s Run could be a blockbuster

Posted on: 12 Jun 2019

IT’S Ladies Night for me this evening and although I daren’t tell Mrs Hull, my eye has been caught by not only the dusky Parisien beauties of France’s World Cup team but also those dirty-kneed NILFs. LURGAN TOWN LADIES vs CREWE UNITED LADIES (7.30pm) It looks to be pretty much pissing it down on the southern banks of Lough Neagh so […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Go for goals in the land of Ice and Fire

Posted on: 10 Jun 2019

I’M heading to Iceland’s 2 Dield in search of goals and reckon this one has a great chance at a fair price. SELFOSS vs KFG (8.15pm) This one should be dictated by each team’s respective home and away form – my thoughts siding with a healthy win for Selfoss although any goals will be gratefully received! The hosts have hit 5-3-1 […]

HullShaker’s Tips: GG TiPS the perfect blend for goals

Posted on: 04 Jun 2019

NORDIC action all the way for me today and I’ve picked out a game from Finland and one from Iceland that both stand a great chance of goals! GG vs FENRIR (9pm) Destination south-west Iceland for this one and I’m putting my money on the hosts handing out a humping to new kids on the block Fenrir. The visiting side […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Super Whites and Shakers wage war on The Wirral

Posted on: 30 Apr 2019

IT is a widely known fact Bury is the precise centre of the universe – not just in interplanetary terms but also in football parlance. Not only are The Mighty Shakers still holders of the biggest FA Cup Final victory when we trounced Derby County 6-0 in 1903 but we also erm … errr, hmmm … OK so we’ve achieved […]

HullShaker’s Tips: Kick off with Man City goals and angle for an Asuncion stalemate

Posted on: 20 Apr 2019

BY far and away the biggest game of the Paraguayan Division Profesional’s Apertura campaign as perennial big-hitters Olimpia travel across the capital city of Asuncion to take on new kids on the block Cerro Porteno! CERRO PORTEÑO VS. OLIMPIA (10.00pm): Olimpia sit top after 15 games and have a 4 point lead on Cerro who have played one more game and […]

HullShaker’s Tips – The Icemen cometh!

Posted on: 18 Apr 2019

I’VE never been great at remembering important dates. I know my kids birthdays and vaguely know which month Mrs Hull celebrates her annual moon-howling session but beyond that, I’m pretty useless. There are exceptions though and Friday 26th April marks a very special day in the HullShaker household;  a time of year for great celebration and teary-eyed reminiscing.. that’s right […]

HullShaker’s Tips: Not so Crapiata any more

Posted on: 16 Apr 2019

PRICES still good for Cerro given all that has happened in recent months but there is most certainly a caveat or three. Cerro play in the Copa Libertadores in nine days and will be keen to keep up their extraordinary 100 per cent record. Even more pressingly they take on the mighty Olimpia Asuncion in four days and that is […]

HullShaker’s Tips: Manchester Cup cracker on the cards

Posted on: 15 Apr 2019

DROP down from the rain-sodden East Pennines through Diggle, Delph and Dobcross and you’ll come across the small town of Mossley. Keep heading south-west for another 4 miles and you’ll hit Ashton-under-Lyne .. home of The Nash and site of departing coaches for the main event for every Red Rose-blooded local. CURZON ASHTON vs MOSSLEY (7.45pm) It’s Cup Final day […]

HullShaker’s Tips: Petrolera to light up La Paz

Posted on: 14 Apr 2019

SUNDAY sees a pretty impressive looking card but it has been said on the site so many times before, less is often more and, yes, a bigger card means more opportunities but it also offers up more traps to avoid! Hopefully, I can avoid the bogeys and home in on a few birdies with selections from the EPL and South […]

HullShaker’s Tips: Essex Boys could make it a tough Gigg

Posted on: 13 Apr 2019

GREAT stuff in Peru with Binacional running out 5-0 winners but there’s trouble brewing closer to home. Bury vs Colchester I’ve not the time to get fully into the politics now but there’s a cloud hanging over Gigg that is much more complex than the usual cold cover that blows down off the Pennines. This isn’t just a blot on […]

HullShaker’s Tips: Full Monte on the cards

 TWO matches that interest me this evening – one international featuring the Three Lions and the other hailing from Peru’s Primera Division. Montenegro v England (7.45pm) There seems to be a train of thought Montenegro are a bit of a joke side and some small province cast away in relative seclusion but, while the footballing standard may be questionable, don’t […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Team goals treble too tempting

Posted on: 23 Mar 2019

IT’S a great looking UK card and I’ve carved out three games where I reckon the home side stand a fantastic chance of scoring at least a brace of goals… CHORLEY VS. LEAMINGTON NLN table-toppers Chorley have hit a minimum of 2 goals in 8 of their last 9 home matches and ought to nail this one against an ailing […]

HullShaker’s Tips: Olimpian torchbearers to burn bookies fingers

Posted on: 20 Mar 2019

THREE games I like the look of today and will list a brief run-down rather than a detailed write-up as time is really limited for me at the moment – folk can make their minds up from there but all are confident picks. OLIMPIA v DEPORTIVO SANTANÍ (11.15pm): Love the look of this one and although there are no guarantees in […]

HullShaker’s Tips: Any Porteno in a storm

Posted on: 18 Mar 2019

IT’S been a great weekend and I’m setting my sights on this one from the Paraguayan top flight to extend that run of form! CERRO PORTEÑO v SOL DE AMÉRICA (10.15pm) Cerro looked great in the early stages of the Apertura and they’ve gone on to justify my early optimism with a crackling start to campaign which sees them sitting […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Hosts look hot to trot in Chile

Posted on: 15 Mar 2019

ALL roads lead to Chile this evening and it’s destination Santiago – The Estadio Santa Laura-Universidad SEK to be precise – where I fancy hosts Espanola to grab a couple of goals at a tasty looking price. UNIÓN ESPAÑOLA VS. HUACHIPATO (11.00pm) Both sides have had a decent start but after 4 games, it’s Espanola who look the more solid […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Discretion isn’t always the better part of Valur!

Posted on: 12 Mar 2019

ICELANDIC League Cup action for me this evening and with plenty to play for, I reckon this one looks a gem of an early price and would expect it to go off at evens or less VALUR VS. AFTURELDING (6.00pm): Initial thoughts are always going to be centred around a very strong Valur outfit and I’ve been a massive fan myself […]

HullShaker’s Tips – One for the Northern Soul

Posted on: 12 Mar 2019

THIS evening’s card has got the lot; European, South American, Nordic and plenty of upper and lower domestic league action to boot! I’ve looked at pretty much everything but have settled on a humble cup tie much closer to home for the main selection and will roll up a combination of the above for a crack at a team goals […]

HullShaker’s Tips: Cup goals can freeze out bookies

Posted on: 11 Mar 2019

GOALS may well be the route to success for this evening’s picks and I’m taking on two Icelandic Cup games featuring 1 Deild sides playing host to top-flight opposition. HAUKAR v BREIDABLIK (6pm) Haukar’s 2019 cup exploits have been pretty rank thus far and, with 3 consecutive losses, I can’t see them having too much luck against tonight’s visitors! Breidablik […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Icemen to melt bookies resolve

Posted on: 06 Mar 2019

It’s not the brightest of cards but there could just be a glimmer of (Northern) light for those roaming further afield in their quest for goals… HVÍTI RIDDARINN VS. ÁLAFOSS (8.00pm) I’m heading for the land of fire and ice and taking on a game hailing from the League Cup ‘C’ Group 4 featuring two teams who just love a […]

HullShakers Tips – Get set for goals at The Jonny Rocks Stadium

Posted on: 05 Mar 2019

BRIEF post here gents and apologies for the lack of substantive reasoning – really pushed for time! Cheltenham v Bury A strange Tuesday night fixture for us which has been moved forwards to make way for the Cheltenham Festival next week – in all honesty, we could do without having had a busy few weeks including our rare cup run […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Go for goals!

Posted on: 04 Mar 2019

SUNDAY’S approach to targetting goals proved a good choice with a combined total of 11 goals across the two Icelandic picks and it’s a theme I’m sticking with for Monday with my sights set on 3 matches… CARSHALTON ATHLETIC VS. HARLOW TOWN  (7.45pm) I’ve backed Carshalton on a couple of occasions this season and they haven’t let me down – […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Bookies could feel the heat in Chile

Posted on: 02 Mar 2019

IT’S a Saturday card that is literally jam-packed with action and although the UK card offers a veritable feast of sweet selections, I’m heading to Chile for something a little more savoury and may have spotted a potentially tasty bit of value! UNIVERSIDAD DE CHILE VS. HUACHIPATO (11.00pm) Let’s start with a little bit of a history lesson and whilst […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Blooming brilliant in Bolivia

Posted on: 23 Feb 2019

AFTER a shocker of a week, I’m hoping the weekend’s fixtures will mark a turning point and have picked out selections from South America, Iceland and a goals acca from closer to home! BLOOMING VS. REAL POTOSÍ (11.30pm) Every chance that the hosts will be looking to gain the advantage from their own recent home form and their opponents woeful […]

HullShaker’s Tips: Any Porteno in a storm

Posted on: 22 Feb 2019

ALL paths lead to Paraguay for my main Friday selections and I reckon the hosts will be too hot to handle for the visitors. CERRO PORTEÑO v NACIONAL (11.45pm) Cerro continue their great vein of form and have carried on where they left off in the Clausara with a superb start which sees them 2nd top in the Division Profesional […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Search and destroy mission for The Strongest

Posted on: 21 Feb 2019

BRIEF write-up but the Bolivian goal-radar is pinging loud and clear with this evening’s game in La Paz… THE STRONGEST VS. CLUB DESTROYERS (10.30pm) There’s every chance that Destroyers may be on the receiving end of a Strongest backlash after the hosts Libertadores exit courtesy of Paraguayan side Libertad. It’s a fixture with a cracking history of goals and H2H […]

HullShaker’s Tips – Colombian line could be Orsom

Posted on: 20 Feb 2019

THE NIGHT OWL sees me creeping into Colombia’s 2nd tier for a smash and grab raid on goals at a price that looks to offer some under the radar value… DEPORTIVO PEREIRA VS. ORSOMARSO (11.00pm) Bookies have this one nailed on for the host team Pereira and yes, they are in better form and have had much the better start […]

HullShaker’s Tips: Royal Flush in Copa Sudamericana

Posted on: 14 Feb 2019

LIMITED time for reasoning today but this one from SA could well be worth a look… Royal Pari v Monagas (9.15pm) Copa Sudamericana action here and not much in terms of a quality difference as the Venezuelan’s travel to Bolivia but home territory could be key and I’d expect Pari to grab the 1st leg advantage with a brace representing […]

Luque to Paraguay for goals

Posted on: 24 Jan 2019

HullShaker heads to Paraguay in search of goals and favours a home victory… SPORTIVO LUQUEÑO VS. GENERAL DÍAZ (2215 KO): AS the early stages of the Paraguayan Apertura campaign unfold, it pays to keep an eye on results; Cerro Porteno were a team that surprised me in the Clausara and their excellent form continued with an opening victory last night…something I […]
