4 Homes Acca – 5/1/19

It was oh so close to landing the acca again on New Years Day. MK Dons ran riot over Cambridge with a 6-0 win, Bury came back from an early goal down to take care of Crewe 3-1, while Portsmouth won by the odd goal in 3 against AFC Wimbledon.

As the final scores started to come in from around the country, it just needed Lincoln to hold on to their slender advantage over Port Vale. Alas a 90th minute Vale equaliser foiled the bet:-(

The betting bank now stands at -£86.10.

Attention switches to the FA Cup this weekend , where 3 of this weeks selections come from, while I give Colchester 1 last chance to get it right at home in League 2. The WBA game is a 12:30 kick-off, so hopefully the bet is still alive by the time the other matches kickoff at 3:00pm.

Selections for 5th January 2019

English League Two – Colchester to beat Notts Co
English FA Cup – WBA to beat Wigan – 12:30 kickoff
English FA Cup – Brentford to beat Oxford
English FA Cup – Derby to beat Southampton

4 Homes Acca – 1/1/19

If I’d gone for a 5 draws acca on Saturday, rather than 5 home wins, the bet would have been landed at hefty odds of 685/1. Three 0-0 draws and two 1-1 draws, never looked like landing the bet.

The betting bank now stands at -£76.10.

5 Homes Acca – 26/12/18

Oh so close to landing the acca bet on Saturday. Luton beat Burton 2-0, Bury beat Tranmere 2-1, taking a 2-0 lead in the 91st minute, with Tranmere pegging it back to 2-1 in the 94th minute and Lincoln beat Newport 3-2.

In the remaining game. Doncaster twice went ahead against Oxford and when they scored in the 90th minute to go 2-1 up, it looked like the bet was going to be landed. But alas a 97th minute equaliser for Oxford dashed hopes of landing the bet for the 2nd time in 3 weeks.

The betting bank now stands at -£56.10.

Week 17 – Backing Josh Wright’s Premier League Predictions

Not such a good weekend for Josh Wright’s Premier League previews on the WhoScored web site. This week he previewed 8 of the 10 matches, with the other 2 being previewed by Ben McAleer.

Of the 8 games he was right with the result of 3, but didn’t manage to predict the correct score in any of the games. So a loss of -£16.50 to £5 stakes for the correct results and -£40 for the correct scores, brings the overall loss for the season to -£143.10.

4 Homes Acca – 22/12/18

Unfortunately last weekend there was to be no repeat of the winning bet from the previous week. Exeter saw off Crewe with a 1-0 win. Sunderland came back from being an early goal down, to beat Bristol Rovers 2-1. While Charlton survived a 1st minute sending off to beat AFC Wimbledon 2-0. They were helped by Wimbledon receiving a red card of their own in the 33rd minute.

Despite twice coming from a goal down, Aston Villa were unable to get the vital winner against Stoke that would have landed the acca bet for the 2nd week in a row.

The betting bank now stands at -£46.10.

Selections for 22nd December 2018

English League One – Doncaster to beat Oxford
English League One – Luton to beat Burton
English League One – Bury to beat Tranmere
English League Two – Lincoln to beat Newport Co

Week 16 – Backing Josh Wright’s Premier League Predictions

It was a better weekend for Josh Wright’s Premier League predictions on the WhoScored web site. This week he previewed 9 of the 10 matches and correctly predicted that Newcastle would win 1-0 at Huddersfield.

That was the only correct score, but he did manage the correct result in 6 of the 9 games, giving him a £14.90 profit betting £5 on each of his result predictions and a loss of £2.50 for the correct scores. A combined profit of £12.40 reduces the overall loss for the season to £86.60.

Week 15 – Backing Josh Wright’s Premier League Predictions

Josh Wright did the previews for 8 of the  Premier League matches this weekend at WhoScored. He only managed the correct result in 3 of the games and wasn’t able to predict the correct score in any of those.

A loss of -£18.65 for the correct results and -£40.00 for the correct scores, mean he’s now down £99 overall, backing the results and correct scores to £5 stakes, based upon the bet365 odds available at the time I checked the previews.

New Football Betting Service

Football Winner is a new service just launched and they’re running an early bird introductory offer. From now until Sunday 2nd December they’re offering a 1 year membership for £67 (£80.40 including VAT) compared with £14.95 for the monthly subscription.

Tips are provided as either win only or win doubles / trebles. They use a 100 point betting bank and advise bets as either 2.5 or 5 points. So you could say they use a 40 point betting bank and bet either 1 or 2 points.

Profit figures on their site are based upon £10 or £100 a point. So when they say you could turn £100 into £21,077.50, what they mean is betting that would have been the profit staking £100 a point, which would be bets of either £250 or £500, depending upon whether they’re 2.5 or 5 point bets.

A spreadsheet with a full breakdown of their results from 5th May, can be downloaded from their site. Selections are from the main European football leagues, as well as games in the USA MLS, China and International matches.

The service sounds interesting. I’ll be taking up the early bird offer and will be reporting on the blog how the service performs. For testing I’ll setup a £200 betting bank and will bet £5 or £10 stakes.

You can either check back on the blog, to see how they perform, or if you want to try the service for yourself, click here to join.

When you join they give you the option to also subscribe to an additional Premier League service for £37 for the year. I didn’t take up that option, as I’m already following Josh Wright’s Premier League selections, so I’ll just be reporting the results for the main service.
