Beat the Bookies: Week 33

By: Rob Sedgwick
Date: 21/03/2013

ALL five tips lost last week. Never mind, it happens, and we'd still make a profit this season if that happens every week in the few weeks left of the season - which it hopefully won't.

Grimsby take on Wrexham this weekend with Town's results having nosedived. You could look on that in two ways - a chance to bet on Wrexham as Grimsby or out of form, or the odds on Town might be better value because they haven't got the points their performances have deserved over the last few games. Personally I'm inclined to bet on a Wrexham win by more than 1 goal, which is available at 5.5 from Bet 365.

League One

  • Swindon v Notts County - away win (6.25, Bet Victor). This is a great value bet. County have only lost three away games all season, and on recent form there is little to choose between the two sides.

  • Brentford v Preston - away win (4.33, Ladbrokes). Looking at the recent form and ignoring the league table there is not much to choose between these two teams. PNE have had good results in their last four games with Notts County, Stevenage, MK Dons and Swindon, so Brentford shouldn't pose a problem.

    League Two

  • Gillingham v Accrington Stanley - away win (7.00, Sky Bet). Accrington have pulled themselves out of the bottom two with two great wins over their relegation rivals in the last two games. But they need a lot more points yet to be sure of escape! Gillingham could be another source of points, as the Gills have had just one in six and are starting to slip down the table.

  • Fleetwood Town v Dag & Red - away win (4.01, Pinnacle). Fleetwood have been terrible in the last two games (both defeats) and their manager has heavily criticised his own side and players. Dagenham could be their next victims. They are showing some form as they have not lost for four games.

  • Port Vale v Aldershot - away win (5.50, Sporting Bet). This is another topsy turvy game in League Two with an out of form side at the top playing an in form side at the bottom. Vale have just one win in six, Aldershot like most of the teams at the bottom have not been losing many recently. Hopefully the drubbing by Accrington in their last game was a one-off!

  • Bradford v Bristol Rovers - away win (4.00, Sky Bet). Bristol Rovers have picked up four wins and the last six and with 51 points are close to being able to relax. Bradford are going through the motions for the rest of the season, they managed a win against another mid-table side (Wycombe) in midweek but before that failed to beat three teams at the bottom - Exeter, Plymouth and Aldershot.

    FA Trophy

  • Grimsby v Wrexham - Wrexham to win by 2 or more goals (5.5, Bet 365). Grimsby have lost their last four, a combination of injuries, too many games and too many changes to the team. There's bound to be a lot more changes for the Wembley game. Wrexham didn't play in midweek so have had an extra few days rest, a key factor at this stage of the season. Grimsby have not scored in the last three games, so a big Wrexham win is not inconceivable.

    Scottish Division One

  • Dunfermline v Dumbarton- away win (4.5, Sky Bet). Dumbarton's away form is excellent and one of the best in the division. They have won five times on the road already this season, by far the best return of the teams in the bottom half of the table. Neither side are playing well, but at least Dumbarton have managed a win in their last six games, Dunfermline haven't even managed that!
