Saturday's Football

Selections for tomorrow:

W.B.A v. Fulham (11/8 Paddy Power) - 3/5*

West Brom have had a decent start to the season and currently sit in mid-table and deservedly have slight favouritism in this clash with Fulham. West Brom's target for the season is to avoid relegation and a vital part of this is to win home games such as this one. Fulham's start to the season has been somewhat inconsistent with them recording a great home win over Arsenal but they've lost both away games so far, 1-0 v. Blackburn and notably a 2-1 defeat to newly-promoted Hull. They also most recently lost at home to West Ham too. WBA have already defeated West Ham at The Hawthorns and had a tremendous 1-0 win in their last game away to Boro.

Wigan v. Middlesbrough (11/10 Paddy Power) - 2/5*

Wigan have had a better than expected start to this season with many people contributing this to their strikeforce of Heskey and Zaki. Both are fit for tomorrow and should give Boro's defence a lot of trouble. Wigan have decent home form, winning their last game against Man City 2-1 and receiving a narrow 1-0 defeat to Chelsea. This coupled with the fact Middlesbrough haven't won away from home for 11 games means that Wigan are a very decent bet.

Hereford v. Walsall (7/5 Paddy Power) - 2/5*

Simply can't turn the value here. Hereford have had a terrible start to the season and are rooted to the bottom of League One with 1 win from 8 whereas Walsall have started well and sit in the playoff spots. Walsall have won their last 3 games including 2 away wins over Brighton and Britol Rovers. Some people may point to a draw in this game but both teams have only drawn once this season and Walsall haven't drawn any of their away games this season.

Clyde v. Dunfermline DRAW (11/4 Ladbrokes) - 3/5*

Scottish Division One is a haven for draws and this seems the best bet for tomorrow with both teams having drawn 3 games from 8 already this season. Dunfermline are the slighty stronger team here but Clyde's home advantage points to the draw here. Other key stats show Clyde have drawn both of their last two home games as have Dunfermline with their away fixtures.

Hopefully these bets earn us some pennies. As you can see I've went for selections at evens or better which the fashion of most of my football bets. An accumulator here pays about 40/1.

*Confidence in the bet.

Good luck with whatever you are on tomorrow and stick any selections in the comments.

Oh excellent fayre, loads of stuff for me to read, not written by me! Laura arrived last night so I'll have a few days off posting dull stuff anyway. Might get stuck into some horsey form midweek when she's away.
