I have dusted myself down from last weekend and I am ready to jump back on my horse. £81.92 adrift but I am confident of getting it back. My reality TV bets are looking good and should be on course for netting some money. Bullard and Quickenden are the two favourites in IACGMOOH at even money and 7 to 2 respectively, £80 at 9 to 2 and £30 at 16 to 1 is looking nice. My outside chance tip on Only The Young in X Factor didn't last long though. Andrea is no longer favourite after being placed in the bottom two.
On to the Football. Fine margins with the football last weekend. Charlton drawing nil nil was a real killer. A goal for Charlton would have meant being £524 up instead of £328 down. 2 from 6 for the long shot bet. I need to get my NAPS back on track, with a woeful 10 from 15 record at the minute.
Premier League – QPR at 11/8 (Bet 365) is a tempting prospect as they are at home to Leicester. QPR perform well at home whilst Leicester struggle to pick up points on the road. A nice price and I will be having QPR this week and they are my NAP. This is the only game that offers any value for me in the Premier League this weekend. Liverpool are terrible at the minute and I certainly won't be having them at odds of 8/11 (Bet 365). Man Utd should beat Hull but at 1/3 it offers little value. A Man Utd and Chelsea double, Chelsea away to Sunderland in the late kick off, only pays 1.86 (Bet 365).
The Championship – Brentford 11/8 (William Hill) at home to Wolves. Wolves have conceded 10 goals in the last 3 games and Brentford perform well at home and they have just recently beaten league leaders Derby. Slim pickings again in this league and it will just be the one game that I concentrate on.
League One – Bradford at home to Leyton Orient offers nice value at 31/20 (Victor). Despite Leyton coming off the back of a 4-1 victory to Crewe, who are bottom of the league, I still fancy Bradford to nick this one. Swindon at home to Fleetwood is another game that looks good in this division but the odds are a little odds on with the best price being 5/6 (Sky Bet).
League Two – This division sees top against bottom. Wycombe are away from home and are odds against at 21/20 (Sky Bet). Hartlepool's most recent win came away from home and they have only won once at home all season. Luton even money (William Hill) at home to Mansfield is another fixture that offers good value. Luton will be looking to bounce back from a recent defeat and Mansfield are trying to make it two wins on the trot, which is why I think the price is so appealing.
QPR 11/8 (Bet 365) – £100
Brentford 11/8 (William Hill) – £25
Bradford 31/20 (Victor) – £25
Swindon 5/6 (Sky Bet) – £25
Wycombe 21/20 (Sky Bet) – £50
Luton evens (William Hill) – £75
£50 double QPR and Luton £50 at 4.76 with William Hill
