Beat the Bookies: Week 31

By: Rob Sedgwick
Date: 12/03/2009

BOTH bets won last week in what was pretty much a perfect weekend for the Mariners. Let's hope this coming weekend will be in the same vein!

Home > 2008-2009 Season > Beat the Bookies > Week 31

Rochdale v Rotherham. Rochdale are very inconsistent at the moment, whereas Rotherham are on fire, and currently top of the form table. The Millers have nothing to lose and can play with complete abandon. Rochdale with all those years of hurt behind them could retreat into their shells. Rotherham can be backed at 16/5 Selection: Rotherham

Aldershot v Luton. Aldershot's recent form has been that of a relegation side, and they have already achieved what they set out to do this season in staying in the league. Luton still have a fighting chance of staying up and should win this. Luton are a very tasty 2/1 with Bet365. Selection: Luton

Chester v Grimsby. Grimsby's recent results have not been good in the main, but Chester's have been even worse! Town have generally been playing the division's top sides of late and they really should go on and beat City. Town can be backed at 13/8. Selection: Grimsby

Macclesfield v Bournemouth. Bournemouth are not out of trouble yet and need a few wins more. This should be one of them against a Macclesfield side with little to play for. The Cherries are favourites at 6/4. Selection: Bournemouth

Morecambe v Barnet. Barnet have had a great run of results recently but so have Morecambe! Barnet in general do not travel well and the home side should win this being both the form horse and the class horse. The Shrimpers can be backed at Evens. Selection: Morecambe

This season we will be trying out three different betting strategies:

  • Fixed Odds - as per last year
  • Spread Betting on the Mini Performance Index with IG Index (25 points for a win, 10 for a draw, 10 for a goal)
  • The Monkey (betting on Town to win each game 3-1, i.e. the complete absence of any betting strategy).

Recommended Fixed Odds Bets

  • 1. Rotherham to beat Rochdale. (16/5, Bet365)
  • 2. Luton to beat Aldershot. (2/1, Bet365)

Recommended Spread Bet

  • Odds not available - see later

The Monkey's Bet

  • Grimsby to win 3-1, 80/1 Bet365
