Don’t Miss This Championship Bet

| April 26, 2011 | 2 Replies

The snooker World Championships are now well underway and I’ve been reasonably happy with the progress of our bets.

Sure, we’ve had a couple of losers but we got decent value on each occasion and our ‘still standing’ bets are currently well placed to put us comfortably into profit.

At present I’m not in any rush to ‘trade’ any of our bets but if I do decide that we are best off locking in a profit I’ll let you know over in the dedicated section of the website…

Just bookmark this page and check it regularly to ensure that you don’t miss a trick.

In the meantime I’ve spotted a cracking price over in the Championship and I can guarantee that it won’t be around for long.

To avoid missing it, head over to Tote Sport now and back Nottingham Forest to be promoted at 6/1.

This bet is also available at 5/1 with William HillWilliam Hill Sports and 9/2 elsewhere.

Helter Skelter

Forget Alton Towers, Thorpe Park and the ‘scary because you might actually die’ local fairground, if you want a real rollercoaster ride then just become a Nottingham Forest fan (I’m not by the way).

They started the season slowly with just three wins in their first 11 (including six 1-1 draws) that suggested a mid table finish at best…

Before coming storming back with 12 wins in 17 games that led to talk of the title…

Only to win just one of the next 12 matches and very nearly throw away a play-off place…

Before winning three of their last four to put them on the brink of securing that all important top six berth.

But what happens next isn’t just anyone’s guess, it’s MY guess and I think that they are now perfectly placed to win those play offs and secure promotion to the top flight.

As with a lot of my bets, this one’s all about momentum and Forest’s season to date is as clear an example of the strength of momentum as one can get.

Right now they have it and I see no reason why they can’t maintain it right up until the chequered flag.

What’s more, momentum is even more crucial than normal when it comes to the play-offs.

Just look at what happened to Forest last season…

They spent most of the year on the brink of an automatic spot, only to seemingly settle for third place with six weeks to go, winning just two of their last seven matches.

And what happened when it came to the play-offs?

They lost out to a Blackpool side that had only just squeezed into sixth spot courtesy of six wins in their last eight matches.

The value call

Looking at this market, Forest are the obvious value call with anything down to 9/2 representing a decent bet.

Let’s take a quick look at the contenders…

QPR – With a potential points deduction looming over them anyone taking the 1/200 needs to be sectioned and quickly.

Norwich – Not a bad shout at 1/2 given there’ll likely finish second but not for me.

Cardiff – The Bluebirds seem to have become perennial chokers under Dave Jones and 10/11 is skinnier than an anorexic Arsene Wenger.

Reading – 11/4 isn’t bad for another of the form sides but I can’t help but feel that they may have peaked too soon (easily done…)

Swansea – Another 11/4 shot but results have been patchy of late and I’m not sure they’re good enough.

Millwall and below – With games against already relegated Scunthorpe and already safe Palace, 6th spot is Forest’s to lose.

With momentum returning, a manager who has recently won the Championship play-offs (Billie Davies at Derby) and an in form Kris Boyd up top, Forest look primed for one final push.

With odds more than double that of Cardiff, Reading and Swansea the price won’t be around for long…

So, head over to Tote Sport today and back Nottingham Forest to be promoted at 6/1.

    Might stick a bit on this – much as it pains me as I can’t stand that nasty little Scot Billy “Job Done” Davies.

    That’s an even better price than the 4.8 I got for Reading for promotion a while back, so well spotted Mr H.

    You’d never guess I’m a Leeds fan would you! They’ve well & truly blown it – although they’ll finish higher than I thought they would. Good job really, they could have embarrassed themselves big time in the prem.

    Keep up the good work.

    Hi Pete,

    No, I’m not much of a fan of Davies’ personality either but he does seem to do a decent job in the Championship.

    I’ve been surprised by Leeds as they’ve actually had a pretty soft fixture list of late but, as you say, it was probably a year too early for them in any case.
