Beat the Bookies: Week 32

By: Rob Sedgwick
Date: 07/03/2006

SO much for the theory about Arsenal being lousy away from home. On the one occasion I bet against them they wallop Fulham 4-0 at the Cottage!

Home > 2005-2006 Season > Beat the Bookies > Week 32


This weekend Barnet are the visitors to Blundell Park, in a game which Grimsby really must win. bet365.com offer a measly 4/7 for Town to triumph, which their recent form hardly suggests represents any sort of value. The Londoners are ranked 9/2 to cause an upset, which is moderately tempting.

Elsewhere in League Two in-form Lincoln are odds-on to beat Rushden at home, but at 4/6 is still good value for money with bet365.com. Rushden have strung a good run together recently at Nene Park, but struggle for points away from home.

Wycombe and Leyton Orient both have home bankers, but the big match of the day in the division is Northampton v Carlisle. The in-form Cumbrians are a generous 2/1 with bet365.com to topple the Cobblers.

Finally, for those looking for an upset, Scunny have hit a patch of form of late and pulled themselves clear of trouble in League One. They have a big test at high-flying Southend on Saturday and bet365.com are offering 5/1 for the Iron to triumph in Essex.
