|Hi All, |
We have nine selections for you this week, which we’ve grouped into seven separate bets – two doubles and five outright wins.
After a fortnight of Euro 2012 qualifiers, the major leagues resume again this weekend.
Recently I’ve had some questions regarding the odds I quote next to each selection and which bookmakers I use.
Well, I find the best odds available from a host of various bookmakers for each pick.
I have now incorporated a link which will take you directly to the relevant website whose odds I have quoted.
(The difference in prices offered by various betting sites can vary, although usually not by much).
Staking plan and analysis of games follows.
For new members, a ‘point’ stake is simply a percentage of your betting bank, i.e. 3.0 points = 3.0 % of your bank.
Best of luck!
BET 1: Reims 2.5 points $2.10
BET 2: Hyde 2.5 points $1.80

BET 6: Stalybridge , AZ Alkmaar 2.0 points $2.36
BET 7: Montpellier 3.5 points $1.75
FRIDAY 9th SEPTEMBER
France Ligue 2: Reims v Guingamp
This league has proven tricky in the past and is one I normally avoid. However with odds like this on offer the fixture can’t be ignored. Reims are top of the league after five games – they’ve picked up thirteen points from a possible fifteen and have won both of their home games. Last season they finished in mid table, winning nine of their nineteen home games, and look a much stronger side in the new campaign. They take on newly promoted Guingamp on Friday night, a side currently sitting in tenth place with only one win in their last three games. So far they’ve fared admirably in their new environment but will face their toughest test here. Odds for a home win look overpriced.
Verdict: Home win - Best Odds 2.10
SATURDAY 10th SEPTEMBER
England Conference North: Workington v Hyde
Hyde’s terrific start to the season continues and this is now the third consecutive week that they’ve made our selection list. Seven games played, seven wins, 18 goals scored and just 4 conceded. A tremendous turnaround for a side that finished in nineteenth place last season. They’ve yet to concede a goal away from home after three games on the road. Workington find themselves second from bottom after a terrible start to the new campaign, losing five of their opening seven games. They’ve leaked 8 goals in their three home games to date and 15 in all, highlighting the fact that their defense is in severe disarray. Hyde’s winning streak should extend for at least another week with a win here. Away win.
Verdict: Away win - Best Odds 1.80
Scotland Division 2: Cowdenbeath v East Fife
Having been relegated from the first division at the end of last season, Cowdenbeath will have automatic promotion as their main objective come May. After four games of the new campaign (three of which were away from home) they sit in third place with seven points, and will look to add another three points to that tally when they take on an out of sorts East Fife on Saturday. WIth three losses from their opening four games, East Fife are already struggling. They lost their opening two away games and last week suffered a 6-0 demolition at home by Dumbarton. On paper this looks a sure win for Cowdenbeath and odds available here are more than generous. Home win.
Verdict: Home win - Best Odds 1.95
Belgium Pro League: Standard Liege v Westerlo
After five rounds of games in then Belgian top flight, Liege have won both of their home games and drawn two of their three away games, with one loss coming against leaders Gent . Always a strong side at home, last season Standard won ten of the fifteen fixtures played in Liege . Westerlo are bottom of the table with just one point from five games and have already conceded 14 goals, while scoring just 4. Worringly for them they’ve lost on each of the last five occasions that they’ve played against Standard in Liege . Expect that trend to continue here. Home win.
Verdict: Home win - Best Odds 1.38
Scotland Premier League: Dundee United v Rangers
Since drawing with Hearts on the opening day of the season, Rangers have gone on to win their next four league games without conceding a single goal, which is pretty impressive given that three of those games were away from Ibrox. This is nothing unusual for the champions, who last season won fourteen of their seventeen away games. Their opponents on Saturday, Dundee United are currently in eighth place in the table and are yet to win a game at home after three attempts. Hosting Rangers, who thumped them 4-0 the last time the two sides met in Dundee , is a huge task. Rangers have won four of the last five head to head clashes between these sides and the champions should be too strong again here. Away win.
Verdict: Away win - Best Odds 1.55
England League One: Colchester v Leyton Orient
Colchester have had a somewhat mixed start to the new season, with two wins, two draws and two losses to date. They’re currently in thirteenth place and will be looking to improve on last season when they missed out on the play off places by a margin of just nine points. They have a great chance to pick up their second home win here as they take on a struggling Leyton Orient side who are bottom of the table. With one draw (against fellow strugglers Chesterfield ) and five defeats, Orient have scored a mere 2 goals and have so far conceded 12. Colchester , who have beaten Orient at home on the past two times they’ve met should pick up another win here. Home win.
Verdict: Home win - Best Odds 1.83
England Conference North: Stalybridge v Eastwood
With six wins and a draw from their opening seven games, Stalybridge are in second place in the Conference North and are the division’s top scorers with 21 goals. Compare that against an Eastwood side who have failed to score in their last three games and you can see where I’m going with this. They are trailing back in fourteenth place and have already lost two of three away games, conceding 7 times. Stalybridge won their last two home encounters with Eastwood and I expect the same outcome on Saturday, especially with the attacking style of football they have embraced. Home win.
Verdict: Home win - Best Odds 1.57
Holland Eredivisie: AZ Alkmaar v Vitesse
Fourth placed side AZ Alkmaar are currently in top form – they’ve won their last three games in all competitions, scoring 13 goals without conceding. They’ve also won three of their four league games, losing only to leaders Twente. Vitesse have a 100% home record but have picked up just one point from their two away games, which is a reminder of their terrible away record from last season, which stood at 2.3.12. AZ won the corresponding fixture 3-1 last March and on current from this looks like being another convincing win for the home side. Home win.
Verdict: Home win - Best Odds 1.50
SUNDAY 11th SEPTEMBER
France Ligue 1: Montpellier v Nice
Montpellier’s start to the campaign has been impressive, three wins and one defeat (against Lyon ) from four games played. They’ve scored 7 goals in their opening two home games and look a different side to the one that finished in fourteenth place at the end of last season. Nice are already showing symptoms of a side that is struggling. Yet to win a game, even though three of their four games to date have been at home, they’ve only scored twice this season and look destined for a difficult campaign once again – they finished last season one place outside the relegation zone. Montpellier have won three and drawn one of their past four encounters with Nice and, although they are probably punching above their collective weight by currently leading the competition, they should stay there for a while longer with another win on Sunday. Home win.
Verdict: Home win - Best Odds 1.75
