Email problems

I have wondered why my inbox has been quiet the past few days. It turns out there is something wrong with my email setup so hopefully when that’s fixed the emails will flood in, but if you have emailed me and don’t hear back from me within a week, please resend in case it got lost in the tubes somewhere.

Celta de Vigo – If level at 75 mins LTD or lay unders whichever looks best value Villareal v Barca – Again Barca are hard to oppose (although the other day showed they can be opposed!) but the stats tell a very different story to the odds. 1.55 on Barca is way too cheap, so I might oppose them here. not sure how, laying them is one decent option, as is backing the draw with a target in mind of xx odds or 1-1 late in the game. Just need to be aware (if backing draw) that it will drop nicely if VR score, but if they score again it …

I can’t trade today which is a pain as the coupon looks great. Family visits etc plus I think someone gave me back this bloody flu crap that’s been going round for months and I am sure I have had it twice already. Hope you all find a few good opportunities on what looks a tasty coupon 🙂

Friday 6 Jan

Small coupon again today for footie. Espanyol – Part of me thinks the price is so cheap it’s worth a LTD from KO, but I am resisting that idea just because I think it has a reasonable chance of being 0-0 at HT. A LTD from HT seems like a better option, or even safer, wait until 60 minutes and if level with a goal or two each, LTD, or if no goals, a lay of U0.5 or 1.5 depending on play and prices.   Mallorca – IF there is an early goal (within first 20 minutes) I will lay U2.5, trading out at HT if no more goals. If …

Nothing at all today. The only thing I looked into was the Athletic Bilbao v Barcelona game. The stats are way out of whack with the odds. A lay of Barcelona until HT looks like a value net in some ways, but opposing Barca is something I have never done and not sure I would today just to find one trade. Will be interested in how the game goes here though

Wednesday 4th Jan

Slim pickings today, a day off is in order perhaps. The Tottenham game will either be a goalfest or a cagey one. I am sure Spurs will badly want the win as 3 points will put them right up near the top, and they have great home form. On the other hand Chelsea has a great defensive set up and will probably do a good job of keeping Spurs at bay at least for a while. So it’s either a leave alone job, a wait and hope for ops in play or maybe a lay of under0.5 goals for 30 minutes from KO. This lay can be had for 1.09 …

A lay of bournemouth looks in order, if trading out after 1 goal. a back of arsenal if waiting/hoping for two. odds suggest bournemouth have it in the bag, and i havent seen any of the game to know any different, but stats alone suggest opposing bournemouth at these prices 10-15 min LTD on stoke just after HT …

Tuesday 3 January

Lots of cup games today so very little to choose from. Stoke v Watford – goal stats nowhere near strong enough for a KO LTD, but if its level at half time a LTD from 45-65 minutes would be my approach. Bournemouth v Arsenal – Again, it may well see early goals but I couldn’t trade this without seeing some of the game. Purely on stats I would be hoping for a level scoreline around 70 minutes for a LTD to run to the finish. Late goals look likely, so LTD or Unders ideas would all be viable if it’s level late on.

Monday 2nd January

Well I am glad I stuck to half stakes yesterday, will do so again for a few days I think, then hopefully things will settle down and stats will have a long overdue reliable spell! The unders lay on yesterday’s Chester game was a good one, amazing that Chester didn’t score but as expected, there were still 3 goals in the game and could have been a lot more based on the play. Today’s Doncaster game looks similar… Note that Stevenage are priced at 5+, which is value in my view, but I am not betting on them as I am not a flat better, not very often anyway. But …

Happy New Year!

Well mine has started well, connection issues again. BT did a great job of installing my optical fibre connection, through a large tree and across through neighbours garden to the pole. The only problem seems to be, trees grow. Apparently this is quite normal. But optical fibre cables don’t grow at the same rate, so I now have a very stretched cable which doesn’t like strong winds, which we had last night. Its up and down, so I will have to get the plonkers out yet again. Also please note I am on travels for the next couple of weeks. I will be trading as and when I can but …

Cue 0-3 😀 …
