Gonzo’s Betting Diary; flogging a dead horse

All in all my weekend picks weren’t too bad, well two of the four came in anyway.  I got it wrong with Oxford, they were easily brushed aside by Blackburn, and Rotherham were hammered by Charlton so the two that didn’t come in failed spectacularly.

Which is pretty fitting… seeing as how this whole enterprise is going. I’m either too stubborn or too stupid to give up so here we go again.

Leicester v Liverpool

Liverpool have played twice since Leicester’s last game, a 3-0 crushing of Stoke, and one of those went the distance as Stoke pushed them to penalties.  A trip to the league leaders is probably exactly what the Anfield side don’t want on Tuesday but that’s the hand they’ve been dealt.  The Foxes are 17/10 and worth a dabble at that price.

West Ham v Aston Villa

Villa took a battering at home to Man City in the FA Cup at the weekend and now face another tough game at West Ham.  The Hammers have actually performed better against the bigger teams this season but they should be too good for Villa, especially at home.  The hosts are unbeaten in 10 at Upton Park in all competitions and three of their last five in east London have been wins.  At 19/20 they’re good value to pick up another three points as they continue their European push.

Crystal Palace v Bournemouth

Palace have been in a sticky patch recently but a win over Stoke at the weekend may have been the start of a resurgence.  The Cherries are no mugs away from home and this could be a close one but at 13/8 I reckon Pardew’s men are worth a punt.

As a treble this comes in at just under 13/1, as per I’ve used Oddschecker for the best prices but have no affiliation with them.
