Beat the Bookies: Week 23

By: Rob Sedgwick
Date: 29/01/2010

LAST week was honours even. The money won with Morecambe's last minute winner at Darlo exactly cancelled out that lost when Town failed to win at Rotherham.

Home > 2009-2010 Season > Beat the Bookies > Week 19


Aldershot v Grimsby. Town have seriously strengthened their side in the last few days. Have the bookies taken this into account. Maybe not. You can get Town at 5/1 with 888sport.com. Selection: Grimsby

Lincoln v Dagenham. City have put some decent results together in recent weeks, whereas Daggers have really dropped away from the promotion picture. You can back City at 15/8. Selection: Lincoln

Rotherham v Macclesfield. Macclesfield are a difficult side to beat and could give Rotherham a real test at the Don Valley. Rotherham slipped up at home to Darlo and played OK against us but are still beatable. Macclesfield are 5/1 Selection: Macclesfield

Bury v Rochdale. Rochdale could only manage a 0-0 draw the other night but they should have won so it can only be regarded as a blip. Both sides are playing well but Dale look like winning every game and 6/4 looks generous for an away win. Selection: Rochdale

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. Grimsby to beat Aldershot. . (5/1, 888 Sport)
  • 2. Lincoln to beat Dagenham. . (15/8, Bet365)

Recommended Spread Bet

  • No bet this week

The Monkey's Bet

  • Grimsby to win 3-1, 80/1 Bet365
