It is Thursday afternoon, so that can mean only one thing - it's time to start sinking the beer! – it is time to look ahead to the weekend’s domestic football and place an accumulator or two.
Last weekend I counted myself extremely unlucky that the bet returning £40.84 did not come in due to Mikel Arteta missing a last-minute penalty for Arsenal against Fulham, a game that ended in a 3-3 draw.
What happened to 1-0 to the Arsenal!
However, this time out I will once again pick a few bets that I am confident can come in and hope that bit of luck needed is with me.
As is usual, my first bet will be looking at some of the matches on Saturday and once again I am going for four home teams to win, which is the same as last weekend as it was so close to a winner.
There is yet again plenty of football in the top four divisions in England this weekend and as ever, I will be trying to win some money with an accumulator or two.
Last weekend I was let down by the big teams and league leaders not being able to continue their form and a couple of late goals really cost me.
However, this time out I will go again and hope to pick a few winners to make some cash.
To start with I am going for a four-fold accumulator that involves teams you would fully expect to come out on top on their own turf.
It is time again to start looking ahead to another fantastic weekend of domestic football and after some of the games we have seen in the last week, it is all set for another enthralling couple of days of action.
Last weekend, my accumulator for £39.35 was only let down by Manchester United beating Chelsea, where a draw had been predicted. This looked to be a great shout when it was eleven v eleven, but the Blues going down to nine-men really cost me and I think I can count myself unlucky on that one.
This time out though I am hoping my luck will change and that I can pocket a decent sum with my two tips for the weekend.
It is of course FA Cup first round weekend and that is where I will be hoping to win some big money with a goals galore bet.
First up though, a five-fold accumulator on games in the Premier League and Championship to make some handy cash.
Yet another superb weekend of domestic football takes place over Saturday and Sunday and as ever, there is some money to be won.
Last week’s accumulator for big money was very close to coming in, but just a couple of results let me down. However, once again I had a good week in the Champions League and made a £42.50 profit. It involved backing a couple of outsiders, including Borussia Dortmund and Ajax, as well as a couple of home bankers – Manchester United and Barcelona, although Barca nearly cost me!
So I am feeling confident of picking a few winners for this weekend and I think it is all about the lower leagues on Saturday and the Premier League on Sunday.
Domestic football is back this weekend after what feels like a very long international break. As always, there are some cracking looking fixtures on show and we will of course be looking to win some money.
Friday evening’s international accumulators never got too close if we are honest and it was always going to be tough with big risks needed to make any sort of notable profit.
So we head back into the domestic matches this time out and I am looking forward to seeing what the weekend has in store. I don’t think I have ever been watching the scores come in on a Saturday afternoon and not been entertained from all four of the top divisions.
That is why my first best for Saturday is going to involve a team from the Premier League, The Championship, League One and League Two.
It is going to be a four-fold accumulator, so it is all about looking at where the value is at.
Friday evening is the time to be placing your accumulators this week with a whole host of World Cup qualifiers taking place.
Last week, I was very close to a winner yet again – with Everton and Brighton being the teams to cost me over £100. It was always a risk going for away teams, but I was hopeful they had enough to come out on top.
However, this week I am confident of picking some international winners and making some profit on Friday evening.
Betting on international this week looks to be very tough though – with many of the big teams going up against minnows of the international game, so the odds do not offer any kind of value.
The aim is to back some of the bigger nations, along with a couple of surprise results to get a good return.
This time of the season is where placing an accumulator can be a little bit easier as we are all starting to see which teams look strong and which don’t like picking up any points at all.
I was not far away from a win last weekend, with Blackpool going down at Cardiff and Norwich being thrashed by Liverpool being the big games to let me down, and I am sure they did for many of you as well.
However, the Champions League was good to me this week as I managed a hand £52 win on a five-fold accumulator that included away wins for Celtic and AC Milan, along with Barcelona, Chelsea and Manchester United.
So this weekend, we are going to go for something similar, looking at teams that look like picking points up on the road for that little bit of extra value.
Once again this is a five-fold and I am confident that this one will come in. It is spread across the Premier League and Championship on Saturday.
As always in English football, another superb weekend of fixtures lie ahead and I am hopeful of picking some winners this time out.
I was so close again to a winner last time out with my seven-fold accumulator – six of the results came and I just needed both teams to score in Northampton v Chesterfield, but it ended in a 0-0.
Anyway, we move on and try to pick some more winners this weekend and the Premier League fixtures look as though they are easier to predict.
With that in mind, I am looking at Premier League fixtures only for my first accumulator. Many bets are sure to be on the early kick-off between Arsenal and Chelsea, but we are going to skip that one as your betting for the day could be over before 3PM.
This is a five-fold accumulator, picking out the results that I am confident will happen.
Another superb weekend of domestic football awaits this weekend and it is a great chance to get some bets on – I will once again be trying to pick out some winners.
Last week was very close to being a memorable one, with my eight-fold accumulator that would have returned over £500 nearly coming in. Six of the teams managed to win, but West Bromwich Albion went down at Fulham when a draw had been predicted and Manchester City couldn't win at Stoke City – something that would have let many people down.
Domestic football is back this weekend after the international break, which is great news if you like an accumulator bet. The international games are always tough to predict, as I found out with my tips last over the weekend.
Just two teams from the six predicted managed a win – but I am confident of some success this weekend with the games being slightly easier to predicted and being able to get much better value.
The both teams to score bet really let us down as well, with again just two of the matches coming in. But, that is just the way it works sometimes.
I very nearly made a handy £75.20 during mid-week though in what was a 13-fold accumulator which was for many of the odds-on favourites to win. Guess what one team let me down though? Yes, England. Let's see if I can go one better this time out.
