  1. Judging by the tumbleweed blowing around this thread I'm assuming nobody followed me in? Braun currently 2/1 fav, added Seth Rollins at 25/1 to my portfolio. Current odds below;
  2. Can somebody tell me why Almagro is outsider against Chardy? I make him fav?
  3. Stan James haven't changed their prices since the 4th round draw - at the prices I like Middlesbrough e/w @ 66/1, a home draw in round 4 against Accrington, win that and they'll be in the 5th round, time to take the competition seriously.
  4. ....well this went well.
  5. Thoughts No surprises at the head of the market with the big 6 dominating the betting, however, I am willing to strike a line though all of those at the moment with a view to making one or two of them no loss as the tournement progresses. I have various reasons for striking a line through them, detailed below; Chelsea - Current league leaders (3rd on my shots ratings), Only 3 sides since the turn of the century have completed the league and cup double, their priority is obviously the title. If it looks like Chelsea have the title sewn up anytime soon, I will look to make these no loss. Liverpool - In the title race, need to solidfy top 4 spot and in the EFL Cup semi-final Man City - In the title race, need to solidfy top 4 spot and in the Champions League latter stages Arsenal - In the title race, need to solidfy top 4 spot and in the Champions League latter stages, They have won 2 of the 3 runnings, but their top 4 spot has been more secure in years past than it looks this season Tottenham - In the title race, need to solidfy top 4 spot and in the Europa League latter stages Man Utd - In the title race, need to solidfy top 4 spot, EFL Cup semi-final and in the Europa League latter stages I'm also willing to rule out Leicester, whose priorities will be Champions League and Premier League survival. Relegation candidates whose priority will be survival I'll put a line through are Burnley (currently midtable I know but given their away form is so poor every home game is cup final for them, Watford, Boro, Palace,Sunderland, Swansea and Hull. After alot of crossing out I'm left with a shortlist of 6 teams who I feel stand the best chance of having a good, solid cup run - Everton, Southampton, West Ham, Bournemouth, Stoke & West Brom. Everton are a side I like, they rank 8th on my shots ratings and have a decent enough recent record in the competition in recent years without actually winning it. Southampton, again perform well on my ratings (7th) but they are struggling to score goals lately and they look to be regressing in recent weeks. West Ham, can't put anybody off West Ham, average on ratings only 7 points above relegation but can't see them getting sucked into a scrap, 5th round and a Quarter final last couple of years and one to keep an eye on. Bournemouth, again can't put anybody off Bournemouth, average on ratings but 10 points above relegtaion - my only concern is that they're abit soft defencely. Stoke, similar to above, average on ratings but shouldn't need to worry about relegation West Brom, you know the script, average on ratings, don't need to worry about relegation, the last two seasons they have been to the 5th round and Quarter Finals, Tony Pulis took a Stoke team of similar profile to the final in 2011 Selections Everton to win the FA Cup @ 25/1 0.5 points each way West Brom to win the FA Cup @ 66/1 0.5 points each way
  6. West Ham v Man Utd Over 40 Booking Points is 7/5 with Paddy Power which looks massive, the card line with 365 is 4.5 and 5/6 either way - both West Ham are averaging 2.37 cards for per game which is the joint 2nd worst record, Mike Dean is the official and he dishes out on avergage 4.04 cards per game
  7. No bets in the football league for me, intrigued to see which way Fulham v Brighton goes though.
  8. Carlisle -0.25 for me today, this line is wrong plain and simple, at the very very least it should be -0.50, probably more like -0.75 if not -1.
  9. Hearts to take 5 or more Corners at home to Aberdeen (10/11 with Skybet) - such bet has weighed in in all of Hearts home matches this season.
  10. Everything points towards goals in the Swansea v Bournemouth game, I've taken Over 2.5 and Over 3.5.
  11. Another blank week in Aus for me. Here's my updated ratings, Sydney clear best for me, not much between the Melbourne sides, Western Sydney and Brisbane - outright odds also more or less reflect this, if pushed I may be tempted with Western Sydney who are available at 12/1, their Save % is very low and once this regresses toward the mean they should start turning a few of these draws into wins, hopefully that can happen this season and they can put together a late charge.
  12. Polish ratings heading into the winter break... Cracovia ranked 2nd yet currently languishing in 14th - this is mainly down to their PDO, if they can boost their save and goal % they should start winning more matches and could be one to keep an eye on. Jagiellonia don't look like they're going anywhere.
  13. Nothing from me - Benifca, Pacos & Guimares all take a clean sweep on my ratings but are priced accoringly, there'll be better opportunities to get involved elsewhere over the Christmas period for me
  14. I do cover the Eredivisie with my shots ratings, I won't get round to looking at this round of fixtures until gameweek - one of the perks of covering so many leagues is I've alwatys got soemthing on the go!
