Good example of the lack of value

id be looking for 2/1 or more given how far behind them we finished last season

Funnily enough I emailed Bet365 this morning and they quoted me 2/1 for us to finish above them. I thought that it was a bit short given the way they have priced both teams in other markets.

so, based on others suggestions as well as my own, I done

 

Salford outright

Juventus outright 

Barcelona outright

MK Dons Promotion

Sunderland outright

Liverpool without City

 

£10 pays a shade over £2000

Good chance of that coming though suspect Sunderland may ruin a few bets this season!

Racing Post preview pull-out in today's paper.

Has us down for 5th. Cheeky barstewards at Racing & Football Outlook had us down for 7th ? behind Killie & Well in their preview last week.

No Hearts-based tips in the recommended ante-post portfolio. The less said about that portfolio the better.

Looking at the prices tables, BetFred have us at a standout 40/1 without Celtic, though it's a win only book?.

Handicap lists see Hills giving us 36pts. (Huns 14, Sheep 22, Vermin 30, Killie 38, Well & Sainties 44, Dundee 46, Accies 48, Paisley 50, Livi 52. God knows how they work handicaps out in a league with a split?.) Might be worth a bet. SkyBet, Bet365 and BetFred give us only 28pts... Even though BetFred have easily the best odds about us in that market without the fiddy-kiddlers?.

The price swayed me on Sunderland. They have to recover at some stage and hopefully they’ve gone down as far as they are going to. 

 

On Liverpool it was a toss up between them and Utd. It’ll be close but i think Liverpool are just a wee bit better equipped than Utd. I actually fancy Liverpool to win it this season. Manufactured teams like City quite often follow a good season with a bad season.

Was reading yesterday that bookies are reporting more than half of all bets placed on EPL are on Liverpool to win the league. I think they’re currently another top centre-back away from being neck and neck with City.

I've decided to go with that. Getting £935 from a fiver, and that's with a bet boost on Ladbrokes as well so mibbies an odds shift, not in my favour ?

I wouldn't give them the satisfaction mate. I might tell them to cancel the bet then I'll re-do it with a tenner stake, that'll piss them right off.

The one time I got my season bet up, I had forgotten about it and didn't check the account for about 3 weeks after the last selection came in. Took me a wee while to find out/remember why there was £750 in it.

LOL. Down already. 40 minutes watching Sunderland tells you they are not winning League 1 outright. Oh well. Back to the drawing board.

I've got a horrible feeling St Mirren might have a decent season, starting with a result against Rangers.

It's obviously not league 2 but Lille are worth looking at this season. They struggled to stay up last season and have had a fire sale to stay solvent. Anyone v Lille could be a banker all season.

Yeah looking that way but hopefully they adjust quickly. Their next two games are at home against two teams with a 100% record so far so good chance to bounce back.

Haring 8/1 to score anytime with bet365 today, the same bet is only 10/3 with sky.

 

22/1 first goal with 365, only 11/1 with sky.

 

They haven't got the prices right at all for today, they've still got Andy Irving, Don Cowie and Liam Smith listed as potential scorers today and perhaps even more far-fetched, Danny Amankwaa.

Last season I dropped BET365 an email offering my services to keep them up to date with Scottish football, as I diplomatically put it, their person or whoever covers the Scottish game was obviously born in Peebles. They never replied.

 

In defence of the aforementioned bookie, they are by far the best odds on goalscorer and especially 2 goalscorers bets, the only people that can beat them are Betfair, but you cannot get 2 goalscorer bets on Betfair for the Scottish game for some reason.
