Beat the Bookies: Week 17

By: Rob Sedgwick
Date: 10/12/2009

ANOTHER week, another couple of close games but not quite the right results for our tips to come in. Like Town, Beat the Bookies is finding it difficult to pick a winner at the moment.

Home > 2009-2010 Season > Beat the Bookies > Week 15


Notts County v Accrington Stanley. Notts County's plans are in tatters after being put up for sale and it must be a bitter blow to everyone associated with the club. They've still got lots of good players but a lot of them must be wondering about their future. They are facing one of the division's in-form teams are quite simply Stanley are a must bet at 7/1 with Sky Bet. Selection: Accrington

Macclesfield v Hereford. Macclesfield are on a Town-like run, rarely winning and picking up quite a few draws. Hereford are inconsistent but usually dispatch the weaker teams in this division. The bookies make Macclesfield the favourites, which feels a little bit wrong. You can back the bulls at 7/4 Selection: Hereford

Shrewsbury v Grimsby. Shrewsbury and Grimsby nearly always draw, Grimsby nearly always draw. It's got to be a draw! What's more you can get 13/5. You can't turn it down. Can you? Selection: Draw

Torquay v Darlington. Torquay have a big cup game in midweek following this fixture. On paper the Gulls should win, but they are bound to have the thoughts on getting into the FA Cup 3rd round. Darlo may just spring a surprise. The Quakers are 5/1 on Sky Bet. Don't miss out. Selection: Darlington

Chesterfield v Cheltenham. Chesterfield have lost their last three games and Cheltenham's recent results suggest they are a team on the up. 9/2 is worth a sniff. Selection: Cheltenham

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

  • Fixed Odds
  • 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). The Monkey lost every bet last year.


Recommended Fixed Odds Bets

  • 1. Accrington to beat Notts County. . (7/1, Sky Bet)
  • 2. Darlington to beat Torquay. . (5/1. Sky Bet)

Recommended Spread Bet

  • Sell Macclesfield mini-performance (24 at extrabet.com)

The Monkey's Bet

  • Grimsby to win 3-1, 66/1 Bet365
