  1. Weekend > Feb 25th - 27th

    Atalanta were sitting at 2.3 at HT v Napoli. Having watched the 1st half it was a very even game, with the (a) side edging it. Well safe to say that was far far too high  and Atalanta despite being down to 10 men are 0-2 up with 10 to play and very good value for the win so far.

    Monaco have gone as high as 1.91. Can't be ignoring that so have backed them last minute.
  3. Weekend > Feb 24th - 26th

    Personally, im leaving Seville. There's just too much at stake in the derby and given Betis' absolutely pathetic performance v Grenada last week this is the IDEAL game to pick themselves up. Betis are very limited but one thing they will have is determination and they don't concede many goals at home. Also Seville to me, looked absolutely exhausted and out on their feet v Leicester in the last 20 mins. Maybe fitness will play a part here. I wan't to back (a) but I'll sit out. Eibar v Malaga HOME WIN 2.05 Great odds here imo for a team that the bookies continue to underestimate. They are no stranger to goals (13 in 5) and are unbeaten against anyone outside the top 3 in the division since the beginning of December last year, a brilliant feat. Malaga with 1 win in 12 matches and have 0 wins (a) this entire season. Surely value on the home side here?
  4. Weekend > Feb 24th - 26th

    Luton v Plymouth BTTS 1.7 The home side coming in on some good form (w2 d2) picking up a respectable draw last time out v Doncaster. The visitors have had two poor results on the bounce at lowly Orient and Hartlepool but surely it's nothing more than a blip given their season so far. Both sides have scored in their last 5 outings and for the current season 75% of Luton Towns home matches have gone BTTS.  Given the importance of the game and the fact Plymouth will be desperate to get back on track I can see goals. Barnet v Cambridge Barnet DnB 1.73 Barnet are unbeaten in two having seen off in-form Morecambe and then gained a respectable point at (h) to Portsmouth. Cambridge have been plummeting since the winter and the defeat of Newport last time out was only their 2nd win in 2017. The other came v Notts County, another poor team.  They've also only kept a clean sheet in 19% of their matches, one of the lowest in the division. Barnet are no world beaters but I can see them avoiding defeat here.

    Picked Palace v Boro DRAW  Two poor teams who will be petrified of losing. Palace are doomed imo and it was evident back in January when Allardyce was seen tossing ridiculous money around in panic buy mode. It showed he didn't rate the current crop and those that came in have done nothing to stop the free fall. Boro have a dreadful away record having only won once but they are a hard nut to crack and would happily take a point here imo. They don't score often on the road and Palace don't get too many at home so SURELY a tight game here?

     @StevieDay1983 never backed Mainz thankfully but Hamburg I left to. Not seeing much standing out this week I'm afraid.
  7. Weekend > Feb 24th - 26th

    I decided to back CS Burton 1-0 Blackburn @6.00     Don't see many goals here but think the home side can edge it.
  8. Week > Feb 21st - 26th

    I have backed home wins for both Nantes and Nice tonight. Nice were available @2.1 so can't turn that down given their excellent home form despite missing a couple of attacking options I still see value here. The visitors have had 2 good results but the 1st, V St Etienne was a little lucky due to a red card changing an otherwise even game. I think Nice bring more quality at home and will be too strong. Dijon with injuries and a very poor defence that Nantes can exploit. 
  9. Europa League > Feb 22nd & 23rd

    Made one of my stupidest bets ever tonight In-play and I'm furious with myself. Two and half months of solid hard work and betting progression set back weeks by living in Canada and having the 1st match kick off at 11am before pretending you are holding the bookies to ransom. Silly, silly boy but stupid bets are always the best learning curves provided you note them down and remember how much more you make the house pay if you don't get greedy. Schoolboy stuff.  See you all tomorrow 
  10. Ranieri SACKED!

    Just lumped on them to be relegated. Why on earth have the sacked him now? Especially when a 1-0 win v Seville at home puts them in the fucking Champions League Quarter finals. Yes, Leceister City. Hes having a crap year but by not sack him earlier? madness.
  11. Weekend > Feb 25th - 27th

    Palace v Boro has a draw written all over it for me.
  12. Europa League > Feb 22nd & 23rd

    APOEL to qualify @4.33 Also had Ajax/Besiktas double. I have put small stakes on BTTS in the Genk v Astra
  13. Europa League > Feb 22nd & 23rd

    I had a bet on the return leg (on Rostov) and Sparta had a man sent off reasonable early which killed the game but up until then it was an even contest. Sparta have a decent home euro record but for me the tie is over and in their hearts the players will know. They have also played poorly since their winter break ended. I think the match will be tight and either a 1X but I've avoided after initially looking at a (h) win

    As a Celtic fan, I have some frightening memories of Mogga and I don't see him making THAT much of an impact immediately at Blackburn. Coyle has roughly the same experience in the league and struggled to get anything out of the players. I see Blackburn as in a similar predicament to Villa. You could put Mourinho at the helm and they'd still lose most matches as the club is rotten to the core. Mowbray might keep them up but he's hardly going to be turning trees with that squad. Edit: Re-Burton, it would seem that Clough committing his future to the club has been a MASSIVE boost to the players who despite a lack of talent are playing out their skin for the manager. Tough team to beat at the moment and I'd fancy them to stay up.

    @giraldi I remember I followed this thread a few seasons back with much interest. Great to see you are still so involved in your project.  I was wondering how to go about signing up for the software (whether there may be a free pass) as I'd been keen to have a further look and get back you with some recommendations based on my own work
