I think this scenario happens more in the championship and in Scotland. They all seem to have more goals than the prem.


Championship goals per game 13/14: 2.6
Premier League goals per game 13/14: 2.77

What I usually do on a Saturday is stick £2 (big spender me) on 6 homes but all have to be at odds of Evens or better.

Over the course of the season it'll cost between £70-£80 but if you get it up once you are guaranteed at least £128.

Last season I won twice (a total of nearly £300). It didn't come in the season before that but once it came in 4 times!

It's surprising the games you can find where the home team is Evens or better. This Saturday Bradford are 6/5 to beat Yeovil and Leyton Orient 5/4 to beat Preston.

Many times I've got 5 come in and been one off. Admittedly you're never going to break the bank but for £2 a week it gives a bit of extra interest on a Saturday.

My one rule though is  I never bet on Town!

I'm a big lover of Both Teams To Score betting. The idea of putting an entire league on one acca is very optimistic, but as has been said, if it comes in only once over two seasons for example, you're still a good couple of grand in the good. The scottish lower leagues are an utter goal fest some weeks. Once i put all 15 games from Scotland divisions 1,2 & 3, and was only one team scoring away from a very nice 4 figure sum. Bloody Jocks

The Leyton Orient game is off, that's why I didn't include it in my bet.

Don't fancy Carlisle and Stevenage (which with my record means they will definitely win!)

I could obviously have found more likely homes with shorter odds, but those 6 are the best at "Evens or better" this Saturday I reckon and you only have to get the bet up once a season to make a profit.

Probably only get 1 or 2 come in now though.

A bloke i used to work with would put a fair bit of  money on each individual match of an international tournament finishing 3-3 and said he only needed 1 to come in per tournament to more than double his money for that particular tournament. Both the tournaments i worked with him through(1 world cup and a euro) fell short lol. He's still adamant its worth it haha

Oh well. Looks like my bets down before it really started. I didn't realise the Luton game was an early kick off
