Is this a poker blog or a footy tip line?

Well the only time I seem to post is when I have the footy tips and they are probably wasted as no one hardly reads this any more. Hey their loss is your gain as they have missed some fantastic footy tips recently. This week I hope for more of the same:

1 Sunderland v Derby (Backing Sunderland @ 1.72)
2 Wolves v Preston (Backing Wolves @ 1.74)
3 Sheff Wed v Colchester (Backing Sheff Wed @ 1.91)
4 Ipswich v Barnsley (Backing Ipswich @ 1.62)
5 Hull v Cardiff (Backing Hull @ 2.14)

as a multiple (at 19.87) and singles, plus Rochdale at 1.93 just as a single. Get on early before the price crashes!

As for the poker (i suppose I better mention it in this poker blog), I am a bit frustrated with my Internet connection as its not very good with betfair, so I am playing on full tilt a lot - results wise - I am pretty much dead even having played a few stt's and some 90 runner sit n gos that pay out 18 places. I really want to win one of these soon.

He's Back, He Playing Poker, He's Winning and yeah your value footy bets are back!

All back in and settled, still got two weeks off work yet, and then only back in for a couple of weeks before xmas. Happy days.

Poker is going well, last night finished third in one of Betfairs $5 Rebuys for $357 after having final tabled (6th) in a $1.5k gtd, $15 buck entry for around $100. The rebuy game took ages and finished about 3 o'clock this morning so I am well knackered.

I have however managed to pick out my value footy bets for the weekend. As some of the regular readers know I have a certain amount of success picking out teams whose odds look bigger than they should. Here are this weekends picks:

1 Arsenal v Wigan (Backing Arsenal @ 1.19)
2 Rotherham v Shrewsbury (Backing Rotherham @ 2.05)
3 MK Dons v Chesterfield (Backing MK Dons @ 1.87)
4 Macclesfield v Dag and Red (Backing Macclesfield @ 1.87)

I know some will see 1.2 as not exactly value but there is no way on this earth that Arsenal can lose this. Famous last words! Rotherham are at the top of the form charts in League Two against and ordinary Shrewsbury team means I couldnt beleive it when I saw it at 2.05. The other two games consist of god home teams against less good away teams so 1.87 represents a good price for these. I have backed the 4 as singles to varying stakes and also rolled them up as an 8.49 acca. Good luck, get on before the prices crash.
