Honest Oliver's Tipping Service

Honest Oliver's Tipping Service

Welcome to part one of Honest Oliver's quest to 'Stick it to the Bookies!' Here are my red-hot bankers for the forthcoming weekend:

Stoke v Aston Villa

Needless to say the bookies are all geared up for an away win in this one! Best price for that is 4/5 with Ladbrokes, which to be fair, isn`t a bad price! The value bet for me is the 'total goals' market.

Villa's in-form strike force helped themselves to four against the self-destructing Blues on Sunday, and now come up against the Premiership new boys, who conceded three first half goals at the usually impotent Bolton. The home side will be STOKE'd up for this one, and with that in mind, I'm anticipating a goal fest!

Tip: Get on there being four goals or more with Paddy Power @ 12/5

Liverpool v Boro

Again, no real value on the home win (2/5 the best price). Liverpool started their title challenge with an indifferent performance at Sunderland, whilst Boro impressed against the potentially over-hyped Spurs. That aside, only the most ardent Boro fan would back against the Scousers.

Tip: Back Liverpool to 'steal' a win and keep a clean sheet, at a decent 11/10 with Skybet.

Newcastle v Bolton

King Kev started the season with a respectable draw at 'The Theatre Of Daydreams', and will be looking for three points in their first home match. Bolton took advantage of Stoke`s generosity and went top of the Premiership for 24 hours (scary or what?).

This will obviously be tougher for them, and despite the Barcode's performance against 'The World's Greatest Team', this will be a close encounter.

Tip: Get on a draw at HT, and Newcastle at FT - best price 18/5 with Extrabet.

Longshot of the Weekend: Pompey appear over-priced at 9/2 to beat the self-proclaimed 'Inter-galactic World Champions of the Universe', especially now the injury excuses are being rolled out by Lord Taggart. Get on Portsmouth to win at that price or, if you fancy it, you can get 12s for a 1-0 home win at BlueSq.

City Watch (v. West Ham)

A match to avoid from a punter's perspective, because literally anything could happen. The safest bet could be 1-1 at 6s, and you can get 11/1 on penalty king Elano for first goal.

Happy betting punters and I'll return next week to share in the demise of the bookmakers once again!

Did anyone take my advice???? For anyone who didn't, if you'd have had a pound on each of my three tips, you'd have been exactly FIVE POUNDS in profit! It would have been more but for the Scousers conceding and robbing us of a further £1.10 per pound! Check out the link (or www.oddschecker.com) for my City tips, and also odds on the Rags losing! More tips next weekend - dont miss out! As Del Boy says, "You know it makes sense!"
