Premier League Betting – Week 2

Posted: August 20, 2010 by thepremierleagueowl in Betting
Tags: Wolves, Tottenham, Chelsea, Everton, Middlesbrough, Stoke, QPR

An up and down week last term around, Villa, United, and Chelsea all going as we expected – the less said about the abomination at Wigan the better. Jumping out from the coupon at us this week is the very long 12/5 on Stoke overcoming Tottenham. Spurs started well against Manchester City, but expect the […]

Premier League Betting – Week 1

The most dangerous week of the season…beware, beware. Top of the list, and opening up the season, are Spurs and Man City. If you ever listen to anything we say, let it be this – do not touch this game. Full stop. Good, and realistic , value exists elsewhere though. The bookies have clearly guarded […]

Good start to the new year, Manchester United running out 3-1 winners at Wembley, and Javier Hernandez scoring – via his face – to leave us at 100% for the new season. Roll on next week.

FA Community Shield Betting

Finally, finally, finally, the season is almost here – until 12pm next Saturday though, we’ll have to make do with the Community Shield. Sunday, 1500 BST, Wembley – Sky Sports One/HD First and foremost, there will be no Didier Drogba tomorrow – the Ivorian is ten days off surgery, and probably won’t be seen until […]

Japan vs Paraguay – Rising Sun to burn brighter.

Japan seem to have developed the trait deployed so expertly by South Korea in 2002 – genuine respect for the basics of the game. Obvious as that may sound, team mastery of the fundamentals of the sport – movement, first touch, stamina, retaining possession – are the cornerstone of the qualities that make a team […]

Japan? Told you so.

Posted: June 25, 2010 by thepremierleagueowl in Betting

You didn’t listen did you? Didn’t think Japan would actually get through, and win at the same time? Well, let that be a lesson to you…. Anyway, yesterday’s mixed bag drops our percentage to 60% for the tournament as we head into the last day of group matches. Brazil and Portugal is a strange one. […]

Groups E & F: Nervous Times

Posted: June 24, 2010 by thepremierleagueowl in Betting

Another good day yesterday, with good calls on Germany and England – although feeling slightly sheepish about the ‘bite their hand off’ comment regarding Serbia. Oh well, onwards and upwards – we’re still at 66% for the tournament. First rule of any World Cup, never write off the Italians. Slow, ponderous, and overly mature they […]

Group C/D – Winning Time

Dangerous, dangerous territory… but we’re going with England today

Group A Betting – Tuesday 21st June.

Many have already fallen into this trap, but we’re urging you to stay away from Uruguay/Mexico like the plague this afternoon.  Never underestimate what the removal of the necessity to win can do to a team.  The facts are these, a draw between the South Americans eliminates France, so look for a vibrant first half […]

Spain v Honduras Betting

Tags: Betting, ,

Better late than never, but with Fernando Torres restored to the Spanish line-up this evening, expect an avalanche of goals.  Honduras failed to contain a useful Chilean outfit last time round, expect the Spaniards to be far less merciful infront of goal. Spain with a -1 Handicap are widely available at 2/5, with -2 priced […]
