Ful Yer Boots

It's been a while since I've blogged but I thought best I pop something up since we've slimmed our membership down to 4. Since I last posted I've been on a free trip to Vegas for 8 days at the start of February which was simply incredible and deserves a post of its own so will look to do that maybe over the weekend.

Anyway, my main bet for this weekend looks to be on Fulham in the live evening FA Cup game against Spurs. According to my Dundee Evening Telegraph they are best price 2/1 with bet365. Their solid home form coupled with the fact Spurs are missing a load of players (including their key man Aaron Lennon) makes them the bet of the day for me.

I may double them with West Ham to beat Bolton at Upton Park if I can squeak evens out somewhere. Elsewhere Barnsley are an insulting 7/1 away at Newcastle and I feel obliged to back Barnsley at that price, that's with Laddies.

There was some excellent greyhounds on Sky this Tuesday past and I got matched at 42 on a early paced hound that I thought might hold. It got caught on the line to leave me devastated but I managed to break even on the night with a couple of winners. I had an early nibble for the Greyhound Derby on Shaw's Dilemma at 80/1 and told Dom to get involved too - it has since been cut to 50s after a strong late rally on Tuesday over 460m (Derby over 480m). I like this dog alot and struggle to think of a race where it'll not finish top 3.

Anyway, good luck for this weekend whatever you're doing and please comment if you have any views on my bets or simply leave bets of your own in there.

Agree about Barnsley. Can see no way they'll win personally, but from a purely betting angle, it does look a massive, massive price. Definite value bet.

It's not like they're a terrible side and in this division, anything can happen.

I'll have a tickler on a Fulham and West Ham double (*jumps on bandwagon*)

Dingles to cause an upset at St. James' ? Stranger things have happened, and I might just bang a token coupla quid on that to earn a few beer tokens if luck is on my side !

GL to all
