A mixed start to the month
May 2011 represented my most profitable month as a football bettor with a profit of around 30 units and I am confident this month can turn out in profitable fashion. It has been a mixed start so far with a promising midweek last week ended with a lame Sunday.
The highlight of our weekend was undoubtedly our win position on Stuttgart at just around 10/11 (1.91). Trailing by two goals with less than 20 minutes to play, they turned it completely around and won 3-2.
We also had a winning position on Barcelona to score in both halves against Espanyol combined with Sevilla to score over 1.5 goals at 13/10 (2.30),and that landed without too much fuss.
Perhaps the main disappointment was Newcastle United failing to find the net at home to Manchester City as we combined a goal for them with West Brom scoring at Bolton Wanderers at 5/4 (2.25).
The 2-0 win for Manchester City puts them firmly in the driving seat going into the last day of the season and they are now a 1/8 (1.13) shot to land the English Premiership title.
Other European markets
The main season in Europe may be coming to a close but that does not mean your involvement in the betting markets should end.
The summer offers a whole host of opportunities to continue trading and making yourself an income from football. The Nordic leagues operate through the summer, so does the League of Ireland and some leagues in Eastern Europe.
The Swedish Allsvenskan is one of my favourite leagues to bet on and has been particularly good to me over the years. If you are not familiar with these leagues, get yourself familiar. It may take some time and research but it will be worth it. The more you find out about a team or league, the more interesting to you it becomes and you will then feel comfortable betting on it.
This week's tips
With most of the other main leagues decided, it is going to take a massive shock to keep the English Premier League crown away from Manchester City.
They host QPR who have a terrible away record and bookmakers are not expecting much resistance. Sportingbet are as short as 1/9 (1.11) for a home win and you will find right across the industry teams priced up on a needs basis and are far too short.
Sportingbet are offering some very attractive specials and you can bet on who the champions will be and third place in an enhanced price.
For example, if you think Manchester City will win the title and Arsenal will finish third, you can get 4/6 (1.67) on that. If you feel Spurs will sneak third place and Man City will be champions, that is a 5/2 (3.50) shot. Manchester United to be champions with Arsenal coming third pays 12/1 (13.0).
I think Man City will win the title with Tottenham coming third so the 5/2 (3.50) appeals to me. Arsenal have a tough match at West Brom and the Gunners are far from reliable. Tottenham should end their campaign with a win at home to poor travellers Fulham.
