  1. I'm on Cambridge and Scnuthorpe today both over/around odds of 2.5. Cambridge playing well at home and Tranmere hit and miss at best. I'd say the home side should be around evens. Scnuthorpe on form and playing without fear against a Gillingham side who seem very Jekyll and Hyde... but most of their impressive performances seem to come away from home when the pressure is off.

    Thanks for the tips! I'm going with you this weekend after a week or so off. Always appreciated
  3. Non-League Predictions > February 2nd

    Dover capitulation was a bit of a blow but still profit for me as my only bets that registered were Dover and Stockport. Bookie cancelled my Whitehawk bet for some reason so that turned out a little blessing. Good tipping Darran.
  4. Non-League Predictions > February 2nd

    Fingers crossed but I think the majority of games below League 1 will probably be called off as they always do now due to transport safety. I really don't like betting in games where the pitch is in poor nick as it matters much less the quality of the side and instead boils down to luck or hunger. Unfortunately may have to limit punting to the higher leagues this weekend

    Good effort Darran! Another decent Tuesday
  6. Non-League Predictions > January 26th

    Wow... when it rains it pours
  7. Non-League Predictions > January 19th

    I've suggested it before, but surely there's a chance when so much money is wagered by foreigners, that foul play should perhaps be considered?

    Late Solihull goal saving the day
  9. Non-League Predictions > January 5th

    Think I'm going to try and start betting for the 70 minute result...
  10. Non-League Predictions > January 5th

    St. Neots are on a terrible run so I can't quite work out how a reasonably performing Royston Town are 13/10 to win away there on Saturday? Perhaps I'm missing something? Thanks for the tips as always Darran Also I like the look of free-scoring Wimborne to win away against Frome at around 6/4

    Chesham late goal saves the day!
  12. Championship Predictions > Dec 29th

    Every single one of my bets ended in a draw this Saturday... definitely could have been better. Good for my team, Sheffield United, but bad for my wallet
  13. I have no idea how Barnsley at home to a decent Charlton side can be shorter than Sunderland at home to Shrewsbury who are much further down the table. I was considering Sunderland a decent bet, but League 1 is so unpredictable right now. Who would have thought Gillingham would beat Portsmouth on Boxing Day? It's a tough one to call, but no doubt I'd say Sunderland are more or less value at home to any team in the division at evens or less.
  14. Championship Predictions > Dec 29th

    Only real value I see is in the Championship this weekend! Birmingham vs. Brentford I think Birmingham have been outstanding of late and comfortably beating Stoke was no mean feat. Stoke have become extremely difficult to break down, and to be honest I think the bookies are overestimating Brentford. Despite the good squad, I am not sure the new manager was the best appointment. One could argue they've turned a corner of late but I don't think a win against lowly Bolton or a draw against another misfiring team in Bristol City can amount to that. I would be tempted to take Birmingham with a -1 handicap but instead I'm just going for the straight win at just over evens. Preston vs. Aston Villa Preston are a team that consistently overachieve and, much like my team Sheffield United, have a squad full of players that the divisions top teams' fans would not consider to be top Championship players like their own. I am a huge fan of Callum Robinson, but he has been out since November and I think Preston have suffered, and I just think Aston Villa will be able to outscore them. If I was pushed I would opt for Villa to win and over 3.5 goals, but instead I will just go with the Villa win at just over evens again. Bolton vs. Stoke We all know that Bolton are going through some issues right now, and after their great start to the season they are truly in a relegation dogfight. Honestly, I expect them to go down as the bottom team. I don't think they will have much transfer activity this January and, if anything, they will lose players rather than gain them. Stoke will look to bounce back after losing to Birmingham and being comfortably beaten, and I expect Rowett to instill to them a must-win mentality in this game. They have gotten in to a habit of drawing their away games and winning home games recently, but I have them to win this one at just under evens.
  15. Only real value I see is in the Championship this weekend! But I will back Luton in League One. Walsall vs. Luton I think Luton are short to win this, but they are consistently winning and I think they are on a trajectory to take top spot in League One. I didn't see it coming, and as a punter have often overlooked them as their odds are always short, but now I am starting to see why the bookies consider them so backable. Walsall are on a poor run of form, particularly in the last game losing at home to a lowly Bristol Rovers side 1 - 3. I fancy Luton to keep with winning ways at around 1.80. I am backing each team in singles bets and also going for the following doubles: Birmingham / Aston Villa at around 5.0 Stoke / Luton at around 3.7 Good luck all!
