Football Bets Service Doors Open Again

Doors have opened up again over at the Football Bets Service after a short summer break.

This season Ex Bookmaker Phil Brown will be the sole soccer betting expert there.

Phil has an excellent long term record of tipping success.

The Premier League is obviously a few weeks away but there is still a lot of soccer about prior to then.

Phil for example picked up a nice Europa League winner the other night using his stats and the observation that Liverpool had left all three main strikers at home to advice an under 2.5 goals bet at Ladbrokes.

You can get a two week test membership of his service for just £1.

Stenhousemuir vs. East Fife

Scottish Division 2 – East Fife WIN @33/20 (vs. Stenhousemuir) – 2 star bet (Bet365)

East Fife drew against Livingston last week and are one of the stronger sides in the division.
Expect them to be competing for 2nd place along with the likes of Alloa.
Although some results haven’t worked out, it’s clear that they’ve been scoring freely
even against the better teams. Stenhousmuir are an in and out side and although they’re
better at home the percentage play is in backing East Fife
(which are still value at 13/8 with Betfred and Ladbrokes) as they should be favourites for this tie.

Scottish Division3 – Queen’s Park WIN@13/8 (vs. Stranraer) – 2 Star bet (Bet365)

Stranraer vs. Queen’s Park

Queen’s park have hit form at the right time and bar Livingston are the team to beat at the moment – they might even nick 3rd if they keep playing like they have been. They’re a solid outfit and should arguably have been challenging for the title. Stranraer are an in and out middle of the table side and although these ties don’t always go the way you want, this is not a pick’em affair – Queen’s should be far shorter than the 13/8 with Bet365. Back them at that price before it goes.

1pt Peterborough to beat Blackpool in the Championship, 11/4 Skybet (Saturday 26th September 3.00pm KO)

Blackpool have got off to a flying start to this season and are sitting comfortably in seventh place. However, I feel this is definitely a false position and Peterborough are value as a result. The Tangerines have had a fair bit of luck over the last few weeks and Ian Holloway was almost embarrassed in the post match interview last week, freely admitting that his side had utterly mugged Nottingham Forest who completely dominated from start to finish. Peterborough got off to a slow start but are beginning to find their feet at this level and are growing in confidence. They are now unbeaten in six games in all competitions. Recent results have been very encouraging with their mid week Carling cup victory over Newcastle following a good win over Reading at the weekend. Before that they picked up two good points on the road away at QPR and Leicester. Peterborough’s attacking trident of McLean, Boyd and Mackail-Smith are a real threat and they have to be worth a small interest at a very big price.

VALUE OUTSIDERS

1PT Bristol Rovers to beat Stockport in League one 2/1 Coral or 9/5 PaddyPower and B365

(Saturday 15th August, 3.00pm KO)

We hit the bar backing the other Bristol side last week but hopefully Rovers will be capable of holding on to a 2-0 lead with less than ten minutes of normal time remaining. Sorry, I’m still a bit bitter about last week as you can probably tell. In all seriousness, I think Rovers look a good bet at a nice price on Saturday. Under normal circumstances, you wouldn’t usually be rushing to back a side that had just sold their twenty nine goal top scorer from the previous season. However, although the departure of Ricky Lambert is an obvious blow to Bristol Rovers, I think that they have capable replacements in Duffy and Kuffour, both of whom managed double figures last season. They will be eager to take their chance to build a reputation for themselves and persuade manager Paul Trollope that he doesn’t need to go and spend a lot of money on another striker. Rovers are a decent league one side and have benefited from a board that has kept faith with a young manager. Paul Trollope is beginning his fifth season at the Memorial ground and he has built a useful team with minimal resources. Trollope is actually the second longest serving manager in the division and the tenth longest serving manger in the country, which is some achievement considering the modern day craziness that sees managers sacked one game into a new season?

The main reason for this bet however, is that Stockport County just have to be opposed right now and a 2/1 quote from Coral was just too big to miss out on. Stockport were placed into administration at the end of last season and are still struggling badly. They punched above their weight for much of last year but have since lost manager Jim Gannon along with most of their best players in McNulty, Dicker, Rowe and Pilkington. There have been no new arrivals of any note over the summer apart from manager Gary Ablett. I am not convinced Ablett is going to be the man for the job at all and his record is far from inspiring. He has never managed in the football league and has just a spell as a youth coach at Everton and a stint as Liverpool reserve manager on his CV. He was only available after Liverpool terminated his contract at the end of last season.

Ablett has a very limited squad to work with and no money for new players. In a situation like this you need experienced players to see you through, yet Stockport have probably got the most inexperienced squad in the football league. The twelve players Ablett used at Oldham last week had an average age of just twenty two. Eight of them were under twenty three and the oldest player was just twenty seven. Although they left Boundary Park with a point last week, this was thanks to a man of the match performance from goalkeeper Fon Williams and was followed up by a 3-1 cup defeat at Huddersfield. The Hatters look nailed on for relegation and I will be looking to oppose them as often as prices allow. Paul Trollope seemed confident of getting a win in his pre match interview and I have to agree with him:

“Stockport are in a little bit of transition with a new manager and I’m sure Gary is trying to mould things how he’d like them – although that can take a little bit of time.

“We are confident that if we can produce the football we’re capable of and defend right, we can win the game.”

Football – Bet of The Week

FOOTBALL BET OF THE WEEK
2 pts West Bromwich Albion to beat Newcastle in the Championship 13/10 Bet365 (Saturday 8th August 5.30pm ko – Live on the BBC)
blog price comment: that price has now gone best available as I type is 11/10 Betfred
As you can probably tell from my ante post preview, I’m not expecting Newcastle to do very well this season. The club is in turmoil. Owner Mike Ashley cannot sell the club for love nor money and until he does everything is in limbo. Alan Shearer has now made television commitments for the new season and probably won’t be their new manager, which may not be a bad thing. As it stands, Chris Hughton is caretaker boss and he is literally working on a week by week basis, knowing that somebody else is likely to come in and take over sooner rather than later. Consequently, Newcastle have brought in no new players and are slowly offloading their top earners. Michael Owen, Obafemi Martins, David Edgar, Sebastian Bassong and Habib Beye have all left the club whilst Danny Guthrie is currently injured. The departures or Owen and Martins severely weaken the Newcastle attack but even more crucial is the departure of defenders Bassong and Beye, leaving a threadbare looking back line. They were beaten 6-1 by Leyton Orient in a pre season friendly recently and their preparations for the new season could not have been any worse.
West Brom have lost manager Tony Mowbray to Celtic but they have a promising replacement in Roberto Di Matteo and more importantly, they have kept their squad together. Scott Carson, Giannni Zuiverloon, Neil Clemet, Robert Koren, Jonathan Greening, Chris Brunt and James Morrison should all do very well at this level whilst Swindon’s prolific goalscorer Simon Cox has been added to the attack. The Baggies are favourites to win the Championship and I don’t think you will get too many opportunities to back them at odds against this season. Newcastle are artificially short for the title in my opinion just because of the size of the club. They will be a major scalp to every Championship side and I think they will be lucky to scrape into the play offs once everything has been sorted out. West Brom should really be odds on in my opinion and I can see money coming for them before kickof.

1pt draw between Caen and Sochaux in French Ligue One

11/5 Stan James, Totesport and William Hill (Saturday 16th May 6pm ko)

We had a lot of success earlier in the season backing draws in France and this is another game that fits the bill. Thirteen out of Caen’s thirty five matches this season have finished in draws (37% = 17/10). Sochaux have drawn twelve out of thirty five (34% = 15/8). Backing draws blindly in Caen and Sochaux games at around the 2/1 mark would clearly be a profitable strategy. When two such teams meet the chances of a draw seem to be further increased and the last three meetings between these two sides have all resulted in draws. Odds of 11/5 suggest that there is only a 31% chance of a draw when the stats seem to suggest otherwise.

Minimum price to take – 15/8

Football Tip For Saturday

Saturday Football Bet From The Oracle at Football Bets

1pt Huddersfield to beat Stockport in league one, 12/5 Skybet or 9/4 Tote (Saturday 28th February 3pm ko)

I’ve said before that I felt Stockport are a club punching above their weight this season, and I think they are on the verge of a significant downturn. They have been enduring financial difficulties for some time now and managing director Mark Magurie quit earlier this month. They had to sell two of their best players in January to balance the books and are left with a young squad thin on numbers. Anthony Pilkington was one of the players sold in January and he was their top scorer at the time. He will return to Edgeley Park tomorrow as a Huddersfield player.

Things came to a head this week when Brighton made an approach for Stockport’s manager Jim Gannon. It was Gannon who masterminded Stockport’s promotion last season and if he leaves I think Stockport could be in real trouble. I say “if” he leaves, because he turned down the Brighton job in the end. However, in a statement during the week, Gannon declared:

“I don’t think any other manager would’ve put up with what’s gone on in the last six months.

“My position became untenable a long time ago.”

This suggests that even though he has turned down Brighton, he will be leaving sooner rather than later. All this is likely to have an extremely unsettling affect on the squad. They lost away at Colchester on Tuesday and I think another defeat is likely to follow tomorrow.

Huddersfield have had the week to prepare for this fixture and have sold out their away allocation. They have a squad full of talented players and I think it is only a matter of time before they put together a run of results. Victories over Leeds and Peterborough in the last month are good evidence of what they are capable of. I think they are a big price to take advantage of Stockport’s troubles tomorrow.

Minimum price to take – 15/8

Everton v Bolton

Everton and Bolton

1pt draw between Everton and Bolton in the Premiership, 13/5 Betfred, PaddyPower and Skybet (Saturday 7th February 3pm ko)

Everton have had an extremely tough couple of weeks. Their last five matches have all been against “big four” sides and all have been played in less than a three week period. Wednesday night’s cup replay against Liverpool lasted 120 minutes and would have taken a hell of a lot out of them. Everton’s game plan is based on hard work and they often take a very physical approach. After such a tough run of games I think they are going to be very tired on Saturday and considering Bolton are also a very physical side, I think Everton could be out muscled. The Toffees have a small squad and the same players have played in nearly every game. Fellani and Pienaar both picked up knocks on Wednesday and are doubtful. If they don’t make it the alternatives are teenagers Gosling and Rodwell or Andy Van Der Meyde who has hardly played in two seasons. They will have one new face in the squad as Jo was signed in the transfer window. However, he has hardly played in months himself and is severely lacking match fitness.

Everton have drawn five of their twelve home games this season and have won just three times at Goodison in the league. I expect Bolton to adopt quite a defensive approach and think Everton will struggle to break them down. Tim Cahill is likely to have to play up front on his own as Yakubu, Vaughan and Saha remain out injured, whilst Anichebe has been frozen out after a training ground bust up with David Moyes. Although Everton are always a threat from set plays, I think they are going to struggle to score from open play and could tire dramatically in the closing stages.

Bolton’s recent form has been encouraging. Narrow defeats to Arsenal and Man Utd, both of which were to late goals, were followed by a draw away at Blackburn and victory over Tottenham last week. They are not one of the better sides technically, but they will be difficult to break down and will fight for every ball, not the sort of side Everton want to be playing after such a gruelling few weeks. The reverse fixture at the Reebok stadium earlier this season was decided by an injury time Everton winner and I expect another tight game tomorrow. The draw is a big runner.

Minimum price to take – 9/4

ANALYSIS

MATCH: Newcastle
go into this fixture with a squad decimated by injuries and unsettled by want
away players. Shay Given has reportedly handed in a written transfer request
and looks set to join Man City, which will be a huge loss. Their injury situation
was bad enough at the start of the week, but the loss of Michael Owen and Joey
Barton on Wednesday night has turned it into a full scale crisis. With Mark
Viduka, Shola Ameobi and Obafemi Martins all injured too, the goalscoring responsibilities
will fall on the shoulders of inexperienced youngster Andy Carroll. He will
be supported by Damien Duff in what will be a very weak looking attack. Charles
Nzogbia added to Joe Kinnear’s problems yesterday by taking great offence to
his manager miss pronouncing his name in an interview. Nzogbia has refused to
play for Kinnear again and is really just using the incident as an excuse to
engineer a transfer before the window closes.
Even
if you put the injury/transfer crisis to one side, Newcastle have been in awful
form lately, picking up just a single point from a possible fifteen and getting
dumped out of the FA cup by Hull. Their excellent home support usually makes
it unwise to oppose the Geordies at home, however, the St James’ Park faithful
seem to be growing disillusioned with events at the club. Incredibly, there
are still tickets available for what should be one of the biggest games of the
season. Just seven wins in their last twenty home games also suggests that St
James’ Park is no longer the fortress it once was.
Sunderland
are in decent form with just one defeat in five games. They have kept back to
back clean sheets and possess a dangerous forward partnership in Cisse and Kenwyne
Jones. Steed Malbranque is the creative influence in midfield with eight assists
so far this season and Sunderland will look to him to provide the ammunition
for the front two. The Mackems are also boosted by the return of Kieron Richardson
who scored the winner in the reverse fixture at the Stadium of Light earlier
in the season.
There
has been a gamble already on Sunderland but they are still value at 2/1 in my
opinion. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Newcastle go off only marginal favourites
on Betfair and would be happy to back Sunderland at 7/4 or better.

GOALS: It
is difficult to judge how many goals there will be in this game as there is
no strong trend in any of the stats. Newcastle games tend to feature a high
number of goals with this especially being the case in home games. Sunderland
games tend to be relatively low scoring affairs however. Recent head to heads
are also evenly split between under and over 2.5 goals. If I had to go one way
or the other I’d probably back overs at evens. Newcastle’s injury problems,
and the absence of Shay Given, should see Sunderland score at least one, forcing
Newcastle to attack and leave space on the counter. An early goal could open
things up dramatically. That said, Newcastle’s depleted side don’t look to have
many goals in them.

GOALSCORERS: The
best bet here has to be Kenywne Jones at 12/5 with Skybet to score anytime.
Jones is bang in form with five goals in seven league games. He will fancy his
chances against Steve Harper and is a very fair price. Djibril Cisse is another
player with chances of getting on the score sheet and is also backable at 11/5.
Cisse is Sunderland’s top scorer with eight league goals. It’s difficult to
make a case for any Newcastle player but if I had to pick out someone I’d go
for Steven Taylor at 13/1 with PaddyPower to score anytime. He is a threat from
set pieces and most other firms are just 9/1.
