Scoop 6 and other dodgy bets

The Editor got a cracking aways coupon up last week to win 200 bucks ... had West Ham won it would have been a further 500 notes from a £1 acca. Tossers.

Here's hoping it was just the start of a winning run. Today I'm on ..

Homes - Huddersfield, Sheff Utd, Burnley, Dundee and Falkirk
Aways - Charlton, Cardiff, Sheff Wed and MK Dons
Acca - Hull, Bury, Charlton and Gillingham.

Yup, I've made the schoolboy error of sticking Charlton on two lines so stick your mortgage on Walsall:-)

Scoop6 and other dodgy bets

I actually got a coupon up on Saturday. Honestly, I did. A four-fold as well. 4 homes it was with Blackpool, Southampton, Morton and Cowdenbeath all producing the goods.

Clearly I'm on a roll so a Champions League 4-folds it is tonight. My money's on Man Utd, Man City, Basel and Inter Milan.

Scoop6 and other dodgy bets

After Saturday's near-miss I hit the bar again last night ... this time Copenhagen let me down after victories for Middlesbrough, Sheffield United and Crystal Palace, all of whom had to come from behind to win.
Fortunately, as with Saturday, I permed any three from four to ensure I made a slight profit. Hopefully, I can go one better tonight.
I'm going to give the Champions League play offs a miss and go for 4 home wins in the notoriously difficult to predict Championship (ach it's only a fiver)
So, I'm on Cardiff, Leicester, Millwall and Blackpool - again, any 3 from 4.

Scoop6 and other dodgy bets

I thought I had learned my lesson last season but obviously not. Yup, I'm one of those mugs who insists on backing Arsenal.
They were 4-0 up at Newcastle last term and still couldn't win so why did I have it in my head that they would get an away victory on Saturday night? God only knows but sure enough they let me down and with it went my fiver treble (Wolves and Brighton did the business earlier in the day).
I wish the Gunners well tonight but I won't be putting a penny on them. It would seem there is no such thing as an Arsenal gift.
So my Champions League bet for the night is Copenhagen at home to Viktoria Plzen. In the Championship I fancy Boro away to Barnsley and Palace at home to Coventry, and in league one I'm going for Sheffield United.
Any 3 from 4 will ensure a payout.
