This site won’t always be betting tips/ideas/advice. I intend to write features fairly regularly but this is just to get the ball rolling.
Spurs V Liverpool – away win
I’m not into the early kick off for a variety of reasons. They tend to be fairly shit games for one, they can ruin an accumulator before all the other games have kicked off and what do you do? Do you start drinking early and risk an early KO, falling asleep before the highlights show is finished later on, or do you settle for a cup of tea and struggle to get into the game at all?
All that aside, I’ll be having a flutter on Liverpool tomorrow simply because it’s Jurgen Klopp’s first game. They’ve done nothing to suggest they can win at White Hart Lane so far this season but he’s probably the only German ever to be blessed with charisma, the good kind anyway, and that could just pull the men from Merseyside over the line. I also want to watch it and I’ve not decided whether to involve alcohol or not and a small stake will keep me interested.
Liverpool are around the 2/1 mark, or slightly higher on the exchanges if you’re not looking to add it to a multiple.
Man City V Bournemouth – home win
Even without Sergio Aguero and David Silva – City should rip through the Cherries. I like Bournemouth they play the game the right way, but they’re an open team and on home soil City should be just a bit too good. If Eddie Howe tries to adopt more defensive tactics, which he probably won’t, that could backfire as well. Only a lunatic would back Bournemouth here and City are probably worth adding to a multiple at around 1/3, I’m also tempted by the hosts with a -1 handicap and that’s paying out at just under evens.
Reading v Charlton – home win
There isn’t much else grabbing me in the Premier League so I’ve dropped down to the Championship and Reading seem a home banker here. Granted, the Championship is a cruel mistress (how did Bristol City win at Middlesbrough? For example) but Charlton are terrible away from home with four losses on the spin. The Royals are 8/15, hardly big potatoes calling this one but again it is worth sticking on the bet slip to boost your odds somewhere along the way surely.
I’m not a tipster per-say, just a guy who likes a good bet. Hopefully these will pay out but don’t hold me liable for any losses – if you’re betting you’re over 18 and responsible for your own actions. Good luck.
