Despite a good weekend a poor midweek means a small accumulative loss this week overall. It all adds up to a poor run the likes of which hasn’t been seen since December. Last week I had disscussed the reasoning behind looking at the long shots with something to play for this week and ignoring the odds on favourites. Just wait until you see the ones that got away.
The One(s) That Got Away
Because I had lost for a couple of weeks in a row I decided to play safe this weekend. That worked fine but it also meant I didn’t take my own advice from last week (“Teams with something to fight for versus teams with little left to play for should be the hunting ground from here on in”).
That means I missed out on Albion Rovers @ 5.5. Forfar on the plus handicaps @ 11/1, Alloa @ 20/1. In many ways it feels as bad as losing.
My best performing bet got back to winning ways and at least that is something. It is still showing a high ROI and strike rate although time is running out to sign up for that bet this season.
The Week Ahead
There are three games on Tuesday with Inverness hosting Hearts in a game that still has some meaning. In the Championship the fate of my ante-post bets lies in the hands of a Hibs side that look destined not to beat Falkirk. Dumbarton also host Queen Of The South in what is a massive game for The Sons and they should be looked at.
The weekend is Scotttish Cup semi-final weekend and that of course is where most of the focus will be while we await the post split fixtures from the Premiership.
