Beat the Bookies: Week 1

By: Rob Sedgwick
Date: 11/08/2011 (Last updated: 12/08/2011)

WELL here we are another season and another chance to beat the bookies! After last season's profit of around £150 per £10 stake it's a lot better investment than the stock market at the moment!

Home > 2011-2012 Season > Beat the Bookies > Week 1

This week Beat the Bookies will be in a slightly different format. We'll have one tip from each of the top five English divisions, each of which we'll place a tenner on (that's the plan anyway), so here they are

Premier League Tip

Newcastle v Arsenal - home win (4.33, Stan James). I can't confess to be keeping an especially close eye on the transfer market but Arsenal seem to be selling one of their top players, or about to, or rumoured to, every time I look. It's too early to write off the Gunners but there's a good chance that the odds reflect their reputation and history rather than the 11 players they put out against the Geordies. They have never travelled well to the North East either.

Championship Tip

Cardiff v Bristol City - away win (5.5, Sky Bet). Cardiff were lucky to beat West Ham last week, amusing as it was. A draw would have been a fairer result. Given that the Welsh sides are one of the favourites anyway, the odds of an away win is probably overgenerous - unlikely as it seemingly is.

League One Tip

Sheffield Utd v Brentford - home win (2.1, Sky Bet). You need a mixture of tips in your "portfolio" each week and this is our home banker. The Blades are bound to be strong at home this season and we're banking on them crushing minnows Brentford convincingly.

League Two Tip

Dagenham v AFC Wimbledon - away win (3.5, Corals). The Dons showed a lot of fight in the televised game this week and should be up for the trip to Daggers, their first away game. Dagenham surely are due to struggle one of these seasons - they lost their last game 4-0 as well.

Blue Square Premier Tip

Darlington v Braintree Town - away win (6.5, 888 Sport). On paper this is a home banker, but Braintree's record in the BSS was so good last season it's tempting to take the ridiculous odds on offer for three points to the visitors.

Every month I try and beat the bookies but now you can try and beat me - with pretend money. Just sign up and join the Grimsby Town team at OLBG.
