Beat the Bookies: Week 25

By: Rob Sedgwick
Date: 24/01/2013

JUST three tips last week, but there was one winner (Sunderland's win at Wigan), which meant a small overall profit for the weekend as a whole. Had Villa held on to their two goal lead against WBA it would have been a lot more profitable.

Home > 2012-2013 Season > Beat the Bookies > Week 25

Town head to Cambridge this weekend, with United having several players out injured. Grimsby are generally priced around 6/4 which looks a reasonable price. Town haven't been firing on all cylinders themselves in recent games. They have ground out a couple of wins against Welling and Hyde, but Cambridge will be a tougher challenge on paper than either of those teams. There's probably better value elsewhere.

League One

  • Bournemouth v Crewe - away win (5.58, Pinnacle). Bournemouth have won just one from the last six, Crewe have won three. Only six points separate the sides and Crewe have a game in hand. It could be a lot closer then the bookies suggest.

    League Two

  • Bradford v Wycombe - away win (5.12, Pinnacle). Bradford's recent form is terrible in League 2. They have obviously got their minds on other things with a cup final coming up. Wycombe have won 3 from 6, they've really stepped up a gear in recent weeks.
  • Burton Albion v Barnet - away win (4.35, Marathon). Barnet are always a good bet at this time of year. They have won 4 from 6 and done pretty well in the other two games as well. Burton are doing well too but the value always lies with Barnet in the latter half of the season!

    FA Cup

  • Reading v Sheffield United - away win (6.0, 888 Sport). Reading have a big game with Chelsea coming up just a few days after this FA Cup clash, which probably won't be a priority. They are bound to rest a few players as the quest to stay in the Premier League is top priority.
  • QPR v MK Dons - away win (6.0, 888 Sport). The same comments apply as to Reading - and the same odds, and the same bookie. QPR play Man City in the Premier League next midweek, they obviously will rest players. MK Dons like Sheff Utd are a very capable team near the top of League 1 and will be a real threat.
