Brett alias “Mr. Bet” is back.
Fresh off the back of a 75% win ratio last time, I’m ready to take another crack at the odds-makers. Maybe not so fresh due to the amount of celebrating I did! Anyway let’s forget about that and get on with this weeks bets.
It’s the final weekend for the 6 nations, so our last chance to make some money off the back of it! With England wrapping up the tournament last week, there’s more concern for pride rather than points this weekend.
The odds are heavily vested in the better nations, thus making the odds not even worth the bus fare to the betting shop. All in or not at all. Wales to repel their disappointment from England against a consistently disappointing Italy. Ireland battered Italy last time out and will continue the treatment against the Scots. Their recent wins will prove a false dawn against the marauding Irish. England on for their first grand slam in a while, at full steam ahead. Can and will sweep any French flair aside with their own brand of barnstorming rugby.
Three teams, three wins. Wales, Ireland & England to win – 9/10 – William Hill
Everton V Arsenal
Out of the FA Cup, Champions League and probably the title race should they slip up here. A loss for the gunners here would do irrevocable damage to their season with any new #wengerout banners likely to be in CAPS LOCK.
With the yearly tendency to shoot themselves in the foot you can’t help but praise their scoring abilities – on form or not.
Talking about on form, the hottest striker in the league, Lukaku with 5 goals in his last 4 games will be licking his lips come kick off. With only Cech standing between him and the match ball.
Only a madman or Donald Trump wouldn’t take this bet.
Both teams to score – 11/18 – 10bet
Chelsea V West Ham
This season has been full of surprises, none more so that Bilic’s Bombastic West Ham team. With more scalps than an extended version of ‘inglorious bastards’ I wouldn’t bet against them taking Chelsea down at the bridge.
With the loss to PSG and Everton in the recent rear-view Hiddink’s men have hit a road bump not seen since the Mourinho circus. Playing with more fire in their belly, Chelsea are a darn site harder to beat , add that to their home advantage and you soon realise West Ham have their work cut out for them. A little handicap nudge here will make me feel so much better.
West Ham to Win +1 – 23/20 Coral
Crystal Palace V Leicester
And so the dream bandwagon rolls on. Leicester edge ever closer to the unthinkable. Can Crystal Palace upset the applecart at Selhurst Park. Leicester have had a bit of a wobble recently but I don’t expect the wheels to fall off just yet, and certainly not here for that matter.
Vardy’s racism has upset people publicly while his lethal pace upsets defenders professionally.
Vardy 1st Goal scorer – 5/1 Bet 365
Bet of the Week
Back to the rugby to sign off this week. George North and Jonathon Jones are top try scorers in the tournament thus far. With Wales playing Italy, this years punch bag, chances should be aplenty for George. Expect North to gobble them up he is very likely to score more than 1 to take home the individual honours.
George North 6 Nations Top Try scorer – 4/6 – Paddypower
