Toby The Tipster has arrived in the Football Transfer Tavern with a smile on his face after another successful week in the betting markets. With winnings to spend Toby is already thinking about what to cover this weekend to double his money and with a busy weekend of English football he may well be in luck.
Toby has just announced to punters gathered around the pool table that he has found what he believes to be a good value bet in the Premier League after putting together a treble containing Southampton, Stoke City and Wigan Athletic which pays 15/1 with Sky Bet.
The Saints host basement boys QPR in what is a massive game in the lower reaches of the top flight and they go into the game on a fantastic run of just one defeat in their eight matches at St. Mary’s.
West Ham United face a tough trip to Stoke who remain consistent at home and Toby expects the Potters to have too strong for the Hammers while Wigan take on Liverpool at the DW Stadium. The Latics looked impressive during their 3-0 victory over Reading last weekend and could heap more misery on the Reds as they look to move clear of the bottom three.
After spending hours researching the league, Toby fancies a tasty 20/1 Championship four-fold of Hull City, Nottingham Forest, Blackburn Rovers and Watford. Tonight the in-form Hornets travel to struggling Wolves on a high after seven victories in their last ten games and with the home side winless in 2013 – which has left them in the relegation zone – it looks a certain winning start to your betting weekend.
Billy Davies’ return to Forest could not have gone much better after starting with a 6-1 victory over Huddersfield Town and following it up with a 2-0 win at Charlton Athletic, they could be a good bet to beat Sheffield Wednesday. Hull may have lost to Blackburn last weekend but they should be too strong for Birmingham City on Saturday while Rovers take on relegation threatened Peterborough United with improved form under Michael Appleton and it’s easy to see why they are short odds to secure victory.
Southampton, Stoke City, Wigan to win at 15/1 (SkyBet)
