I warned you last week that Mother’s Day is here this Sunday, but did you listen? And now anything left in the shops will be rubbish and overpriced. But not to worry, that fifty quid Tom Jones CD collection can become affordable if you can just find an accumulator to turn those pounds into… more pounds, assuming you have anything left after the Cheltenham Festival.
Luckily I have been hard at work in the bwin lab all week, and myself and the ‘bwin boffins’ have used science, mathematics and childish bickering to formulate a four-match 10/1 accumulator. Said accumulator could bring you £276 should you decide to place the free £25 bet you get for joining bwin on this academically sound line-up.
West Brom to beat Wigan@ 29/20
The face-rubbing, head-banging Roy Hodgson takes his Baggies to the DW Stadium looking to pile more misery on the eerily calm Roberto Martinez.
Despite losing at Old Trafford last week, West Brom have been in terrific form recently, winning three of their last four, and have won a notable six out of 14 away games. Wigan on the other hand have won just once at home all season, which is the chief reason they lie bottom of the table.
The Latics won the reverse fixture at the Hawthorns back in December but on current form, and at odds of 29/20, back the Baggies to boing (well it’s in my dictionary) all the way to three points in Lancashire.
Sheffield United to beat Tranmere @ 53/100
Rovers have been on something of a mini-revival since Ronnie Moore took charge for his third spell at Prenton Park, picking up two rare wins in their last two games. However, they were both at home, and a trip to Bramall Lane should be too much too fast for the Wirral club.
The Blades have been pretty solid at home this season, winning 13 of their 18 ties at the Lane. They have also scored the most home goals, with Danny Wilson’s men finding the net 42 times.
Added to this, Tranmere’s away form leaves a lot to be desired, with 12 losses on their 17 trips this campaign. This one just screams standard home win.
Torquay to beat Burton Albion @ 13/10
Sorry Burton fans, it’s really nothing personal, but things just aren’t going quite right at the Pirelli Stadium at the moment. Having correctly tipped Shrewsbury to emerge victorious against the Brewers last week, I am backing Torquay to do the same and pick up three vital points in their quest for promotion.
Albion have still not won since Boxing Day, are on a five game losing streak, and there is no sign of their form turning any time soon. The Gulls on the other hand find themselves second in the League Two table after a good win at Rotherham in midweek and have now won ten of their 13 league games in 2012.
Odds of 29/20 look like incredible value as Martin Ling’s side aim to put pressure on high-flying Swindon at the top of the table.
Tottenham to beat Bolton @ 7/25
And my ‘shoe-in of the week’ (100 per cent record after one whole week of existence) comes in the evening kick-off at White Hart Lane as Spurs seek to put their recent blip behind them against lowly Bolton in their FA Cup quarter-final.
People have been questioning if the England job rumours have been affecting Harry Redknapp as his side have lost their last three Premier League games, all but ending their title hopes. But when you consider those games were away to Arsenal, at home to Manchester United and away to Everton, it becomes a tad more understandable.
Bolton are fresh off a much-needed win over QPR, but I’m not convinced they will give their all to reach a second successive FA Cup semi-final if it means tiring or injuring players they will need badly to maintain their Premier League status.
Tottenham will feel they need to show everyone that they are still a force to be reckoned with, and winning the FA Cup must be high on Redknapp’s list, along with maintaining third spot in the league. Home banker in my book. I can almost hear Mr Jones now, someone lend me some knickers.
