Beat the Bookies: Week 24

By: Rob Sedgwick
Date: 05/02/2010

ADAM Proudlock's penalty miss not only cost the Mariners two precious points, it also cost Beat the Bookies a near certain fifty quid. With yet another postponement at Lincoln it means that the other bet had no chance of making up the deficit.

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


Chesterfield v Lincoln. Lincoln have had some decent results recently and when they have lost it has been narrowly. Chesterfield's biggest problem is scoring; their games have been very low scoring of late. This looks like a low scoring game, and it could be close. 11/2 for an away win looks very generous. Selection: Lincoln

Grimsby v Notts County. Grimsby surely can't win this, or can they? County are on fire, doing well in the league and FA Cup, and their off the field problems don't seem to be having too much effect so far. So why are we tipping Grimsby to win? Because they are 4/1, a ridiculous price for a home team in this division. Town almost won away at Aldershot this week and have Lancashire in the squad now as well. The home win has to be the value bet in this game. Selection: Grimsby

Dag & Red v Northampton. Northampton have won their last three away games; Dagenham have lost 4 out of 6 home games, many of them heavily. Dagenham at the moment seem a team on the down, the Cobblers a team on the up. 9/4 looks a very good price for an away win. Selection: Northampton

Barnet v Aldershot. Barnet cannot win for love or money at the moment and it's worth backing whoever they are playing. Aldershot looked a solid team on their second half performance last weekend and 6/4 is a good price against a team bottom of the form table. Selection: Aldershot

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. Northampton to beat Dagenham. . (9/4, Bet365)
  • 2. Aldershot to beat Barnet. . (6/4, Bet365)

Recommended Spread Bet

  • No bet this week

The Monkey's Bet

  • Grimsby to win 3-1, 50/1 Bet365
