Gonzo’s Betting Diary; again, so close

Only Swansea let me down last time for what would have been a decent treble, but again backing all as singles as well as the accumulator yielded a small profit so I am getting closer.  Again I’m going to be brave this week and go with three odds against away picks.

Norwich v West Ham

I’m starting to worry about the Canaries.  They’ve hit a sticky patch at the wrong time and have lost their last seven games in succession, including their previous three at Carrow Road.  The Hammers were taken the distance by Liverpool in midweek but that was on Tuesday and they shouldn’t be too fatigued by their cup exploits by the time 3pm on Saturday rolls around.  I’ll admit I’m not massively confident on this one but at a top price 9/4 West Ham are worth a punt for me.

Blackburn v Hull

Blackburn are in terrible form and FA Cup wins over Newport and Oxford don’t detract from the fact they’re without a victory in the Championship since early December.  Hull saw a six match winning run come to an end at Burnley last weekend but I expect them to bounce back with all three points at Ewood Park at a top price 7/5.

Reading v Burnley

The Royals are unbeaten in five at home but Burnley look like a side with their eye on the prize and I think the Clarets may just shade this one.  The away side are pushing for a top two spot and Reading’s season is petering out now, with the promotion places a bit too far away and relegation not really a worry either.  Burnley are a top price 11/5 and worth a go at those odds.

As a multiple that pays out at a very tidy 23/1 or thereabouts. As always I’ve used Oddschecker for the best prices but am not affiliated with them in any way.
