When Saturday Comes!

Good morning and welcome to the first edition of ‘When Saturday Comes‘ the weekly betting preview of the weekend’s footy action.

This week I am focussing on four games across all four leagues. These games are:

Man United vs Wolves

Sunderland vs Rochdale

Bury vs Carlisle

Oldham vs Colchester

Man United Vs Wolves

Tip – Home win (Narrow)

Both teams go into this one on the back of three wins on the trot, but the former winners have started to gel of late, and must surely collect all three points here. Wolverhampton have settled nicely to Premier League life, but in an away trip to Old Trafford, I can’t see them outscoring their hosts.

Sunderland vs Rochdale

Tip – Home win / BTTS/ >2.5 goals/ HWBTTS

Closer one to call than most people will realise as to the untrained eye this is an absolute banker home win. Sunderland have got to be favourites here but do tend to concede at home, whilst Dale always seems to bag a goal or two on their travels.

So I’m opting for this to be a home win, both teams will score, over 2.5 goals and home win with both teams to score.

Bury vs Carlisle

Tip – Home win / >2.5 goals / HWBTTS /BTTS

These two sides absolutely love a goal this year, so over 2.5 goals is surely one of the bankers of the weekend. Bury edges it for me, simply by having the better form of late.

I would not be surprised to see this one end 3-2 or more. A great game to have in almost any acca.

Oldham vs Colchester

Tip – Draw / BTTS / DBTTS

A lovely game on paper with both teams coming into this on the back of three nil victories. BTTS in this one is a banker in my eyes. Especially as Latics tend to concede at home and the U’s always concede when playing away.

Could go either way but I fancy a draw here and not a gluttony of goals but I do expect both teams to bag.


Because I’m such a Gent, I have transposed all of the above info into some suggested bets for your consideration.
