Only one team actually lost out of the 14 we backed but 6 draws from the 12 games on Saturday left us needing a good Sunday to claw something back. Luckily Spurs and Everton obliged but we still took a hit on the weekend.
The Bundesliga is on winter break now so we’ll be down by a usual two or three bets per round of games for a while now and Scotland’s games are at the weekend for the majority with the few earlier ones not qualifying. Instead we’re left with an all English affair for Boxing Day with 18 teams to get stuck in to.
7 of which are in the Premier League with us taking five favourites to justify their odds in Arsenal, Tottenham, Norwich, Everton and Chelsea whilst we’re also looking for Cardiff and Crystal Palace to take advantage of Southampton and Aston Villa’s relatively poor form.
In the Championship Wigan have started well under new manager Uwe Rosler but the stats and form point to Birmingham especially at around 7/2. We have a mixture of favourites and outsiders in the two lower leagues and hopefully we can find the right combination to bring us some profit once more.
