FA Cup Glory! [Free Footy & Racing Tips]

The Weekend Bulletin (Fri 8th Jan)

The brand new Betting Insiders Members Report (Issue 129) is hot off the press and is due to be with the members by Saturday morning and promises to help get 2016 off to a great start with its insightful content.

Some of the highlights for this edition include Dr Nick Hardman’s Big Race coverage which had an excellent 2015 (+400pts profit), the regular favourites Cheltenham meetings and VB Reviews/Eyecatchers, as well as more NH micro angles and potentially profitable Handicap Hurdle strategies. The new tennis season is underway and tennis guru Sean Calvert offers his take on the main protagonists for the Men’s Australian Open whilst we also have a unique trading strategy for the Ladies event.

The football coverage features an in depth review of the FA Cup which is steeped in history but has undergone quite a change in recent times with the way that the top clubs perceive it. Here is a taster from the article:-

“The broadcasters and sponsors still try to paint it as this incredibly prestigious competition that everyone wants to win but for the biggest clubs at least, it doesn’t really work that way. They’ll happily sacrifice it for a place in next year’s edition of the Champions League, avoiding relegation or a strong run in either of the European competitions. Ultimately it mostly comes down to money.

There’s not a huge amount of it as far the biggest teams are concerned. A three-quarters full stadium for a home match is a handy boost but not such a huge amount of revenue in the grand scheme of things, especially when you consider that it’s shared with the opposition. And if you’re playing a Shrewsbury or a Darlington away, there simply aren’t enough seats to make the gate receipts that valuable. Obviously, a good Cup run has other benefits such as being a welcome distraction from the league and it can save an otherwise ordinary season. But the reason we emphasise the importance of money is this: the FA Cup isn’t so much about who can win it anymore but more about who really wants to win it.

So with all this in mind, like with any other sporting event, we must look for clues that help us determine the profile of this year’s winner and assess which members of our shortlist offer good betting value.”

The author goes on to discuss his reasons for narrowing down the teams that will be playing out the 3rd Round over the coming weekend and then moves on to his final 3 which should provide plenty of fun and hopefully profit from the outright winner markets in the coming months.

In the meantime we’ll try to identify three over-priced outsiders who will be gunning to knock out Premier League sides who may well decide they’re better off exiting the FA Cup as quickly as possible and focusing on Premier League survival. These last suggestions are based on no more than a desire from one set of teams to go on a good run and secure as much cash as possible from being in the competition as long as possible against teams who will either be missing key players or would rather go for broke than having to face a replay. They are:

Birmingham to beat Bournemouth (4.20 Tote/Fred)
Wycombe to beat Aston Villa (3.5 PP/Bwin)
Oxford to beat Swansea (4.15 888S/Uni).

If any of these win, it would secure a profit to level stakes.

Finally we have a selection for the Lanzarote Hurdle from Carl Nicholson of Carl Nicholson’s Racing Diary(CNRD).

CNRD is showing a whopping 67.99% ROI since it launched in August 2014. more details here http://valuebacking.com/diary

William Hill Lanzarote Hurdle

Kempton 2:35 Saturday 9th 

“I was impressed with the performance of Bivouac at Huntingdon last time out. He put a lacklustre first run of the season behind him that day and could now start to climb up the ladder over hurdles. The form of that race looks very strong with the 3rd place finisher winning a listed handicap easily next time up and a 7lb rise may underestimate him.”

All that remains is to wish you a great weekend from the Betting Insiders team!
