No bets in the Premier League this weekend as the FA Cup action dominates, although I will be posting some bets early next week as there is a full card of games midweek to look forward to. Be sure to check the SBC Blog for full details.
I find the FA Cup a very tricky competition to bet upon, due to the amount of uncertainty about the strength of sides being put out these days. For example – are Birmingham a worthy bet at 1.80 at home to Coventry? They already are in the Carling Cup final and with a relegation dogfight looming I can see a less than enthused showing from them. It would only be total guesswork if placing a bet I feel.
Still the blank weekend gives the chance to re-cap on how the season is going and January has continued recent good form making 3.10 pts from 9 pts staked. This takes the seasonal tally to 8.49 pts profit from 75 pts staked at an ROI (Return of Investment) of 11.33%.
The table above includes 9 ante-post bets and if the league finished today it would generate a further 2.88 pts profit from them. I will be continuing to monitor all ante-post action and will supply additional bets to lock in profit, should opportunities arise.
Whatever you bet on, good luck!
