OK lads, I know some of you like to have a few euro on the odd selection, same as myself. The kick off of the Coca-cola leagues in England is only a week away so it's time to do a bit of research into what ante-post bets to have on. I was thinking if we pool together our thoughts we might be able to come up with some decent bets. I'll stick in my opinions and if anybody has anything to add, feel free. When doing these bets I generally prefer to find value at odds in double figures rather than backing the obvious choice. It's each-way value that I go for really. Feel free to add any decent value bets in any competition (Leagues, cups, Europe, top scorers, whatever).
Here are a couple of my recommendations:
Hernan Crespo @ 14/1 Top Premiership goalscorer - He's a class act despite struggling to fit in at Chelsea under Ranieri. He should be capable of fitting nicely into Mourinho's set up with good quality supply coming from wide. 14/1 seems a value each way selection in my opinion.
Preston @ 20/1 - Coca Cola Championship - Finished last season very strongly but lost out to the Hammers in the play off final. Eddie Lewis will be a bit of a loss but they've signed a couple of decent players including Danny Dichio as well as keeping all the players (Lewis excepted) who got them so close to promotion last season. Again 20/1 seems good each way value to me.
Hartlepool @ 18/1 - Coca Cola League 1 - Like Preston they lost out in the play offs last season but have kept all their best players as well as making a few signings. Another good each way prospect.
League 2 is always hard to call. Torquay look decent value to me at best odds of 16/1. I need to find another selection to add to my acca.
14/1 to wait for a year when henry has scored 23, 24, 30, 25 in that last 4 years. Not a hope.
If you think 14/1 is good value in betting then place it. To be honest i dont think id take a risk at 50/1 and im the man who bet on the pool to win the european cup when no one tought it possible.
if you do rate odds like that good then go with a bet on this
