Beat the Bookies: Week 33

By: Rob Sedgwick
Date: 27/03/2008

SADLY Wrexham never managed to win at Brentford last week. They went a goal down early on, had the chances to get back into the game, then succumbed to a late goal and lost 2-0.

Home > 2007-2008 Season > Beat the Bookies > Week 33

Grimsby are very much outsiders to win the JPT final, with MK Dons in top form and already having beaten Town twice this season, fairly comfortably both times it has to be said. Grimsby are 10/3 with Hills to win the game in this Good v Evil encounter. Being a proper football team with a great tradition, Town will have the moral high ground against their much despised opponents and this could well count in their favour. Hitler may have had the better troops and equipment in WW2 but the Nazis lost because many of them realised they didn't deserve to win the war because of who they were and what they represented. There's no doubt which team will have the better more vocal support on the day, regardless of the number of tickets sold.

Other bets to consider are:

  • 40/1 MK Dons to win at Half Time/Town to win a Full Time
  • 25/1 Danny Boshell to score the first goal
  • 14/1 Town to win on penalties

The only other game worth mentioning this weekend is our perennial favourites Wrexham, who have another away game in London, at Barnet. The Welsh Dragons are 23/10 to win the match in which they desperately need to pick up three points.

Recommended Bets

  • 1. Grimsby to beat MK Dons (10/3, Hills)
  • 2. Wrexham to beat Barnet (23/10, bet365))
