4 to Watch
Wednesday was an extraordinary day in the gambling world, as a 4-timer saw bookies stung up and down the country. But let that not be a one-off kids. Here are another four bets to ensure Mr Bookmaker’s children go hungry tonight.
Stevenage vs Everton
The tie of the round for those who fancy a potential upset, as glamour-puss Robbie Martinez mucks down, and heads for League One’s bottom side. Stevenage manager Graham Westley is no stranger to scything down giants and we think they could get something here. Lay the Toffees to be ahead at HT, at a lovely 1.69.
Sunderland vs Kidderminster
Surely exhausted after the best semi-final since that Arsenal Manchester United one in 1999, the last thing Sunderland need right now, is a low-key match against non-league opposition. It is not only exhaustion which tempts us to back the away side however – Sunderland’s form has been so up and down this season, that following the Lord Mayor’s show, and with a six-pointer against Stoke to come on Wednesday night, we fancy a shock away win – 9/1 with Paddy Power.
Birmingham vs Swansea City
Poor old knackered Swansea – still in the Europa League, more injuries than the British army on the first day at the Somme, and now a trip to St Andrews. Eurrrgh. Paddy Power offer 13/5 on an upset and that is a price we are more than happy to jump on.
Bolton vs Cardiff City
Dougie Freedman is a wily old goat. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer isn’t. Ladbrokes price up both sides at 13/8, so taking the home win is a must.
