Joe Whitaker of Betsid reviews this weekend’s sports betting action.
A tasty weekend of domestic football awaits us and Betsid, your local bookmakers, will be offering unbeatable value.
After the cup win at Leeds in midweek, it will be interesting to see what side Preston boss Alex Neil goes with for the derby with Bolton.
Young lads like Brandon Barker, Josh Harrop and Jordan Storey came in and did themselves no harm at all.
It is a nice headache for Neil to have, though clearly they could do with a win in the league after two straight defeats.
I do fancy them to get this and we always guarantee to be top price for North End, which is 4/6 this week. I like the 5/1 on Graham Burke to score first as he looked very busy at Deepdale against Stoke and got rewarded for his efforts, notching before half time.
Another local side we guarantee to go top price for is Blackpool, and we stuck our neck out and went 5/2 on Thursday for the Seasiders to win at Walsall.
We feel it is only right to give a bit back to the locals by offering this value. It looks like Curtis Tilt will be staying for the time being and they have looked decent so far, with their league cup run continuing. I thought 5/2 looked on the big side but we have honoured our promise! Get on!
The biggest value of the weekend comes with the mega Sunday treble boost in the Premier League. We have gone a huge 4/1 for Arsenal, Tottenham and Manchester United to pick up three points away from home.
We are clearly praying one of the big boys slips up here, and if I had to pick one it would be United at Burnley.
They just don’t look right to me and I cant remember a time when they have looked so beatable.
The defence is a shadow of the great back fours that United have once had in years gone by and whilst Burnley have had a slow start themselves, is Turf Moor really the place to go when you are feeling vulnerable?
The Clarets won’t make life easy for Jose and Co! It can be expensive to have an opinion in this game however and the value being offered in our shops and online has been very popular.
As is common practice in the industry we can only take so much altogether at this enlarged price and we have seen the usual rush to get on this so it pays to keep your eyes peeled every Thursday afternoon!
On the horses front, the Solario Stakes at Sandown contains my nap of the weekend, TOO DARN HOT.
The colt owned by Andrew Lloyd Webber and trained by John Gosden made a statement on his debut at Sandown earlier in August, winning by 7 lengths.
Bred out of Dubawi, it has already been backed into 12/1 for next years 2000 Guineas. This could be an exciting horse and I think the 5/4 on offer currrently could be a freebie!
As always, keep your betting fun and under control, and enjoy the action this weekend folks. Joe
