When Rangers threw away a two goal lead with eighteen minutes remaining on Friday night I knew it was going to be one of those weeks. The strike rate this week is really poor with just three winners from tweve bets but not all is what it seems there.
Most of the losers were the small stakes accas that the website demands I post but I never tire of saying I wouldn’t otherwise be doing. In fact, had the Rangers bet won as it should have (check out Barry McKay missing an open goal at 0-2) the week would have ended in profit.
Saturday and Sunday actually resulted in a profit despite the low strike rate. Going forward I will be very happy to lose out to the occasional anomaly in football. In my opinion it points to me doing something right.
The One That Got Away
The one that got away was Ross County v Inverness +2.5 goals. I elected to go for both teams to score in that game and, again, on another day that may have come in. The Staggies hitting the woodwork twice was the margin of error for that one.
The Week Ahead
First up is a St Mirren v Raith Rovers Betting Preview for Tuesday evening. There is a real opportunity there in my opinion in the unders markets. There is also a League 2 game with Clyde hosting Anann on Tuesday evening.
The international break means no top flight action this weekend and that will almost certainly mean less bets from me. I often ponder about taking a complete break when their is international games but with so much to play for across the lower three divisions it is hard to do.
East Fife at home to Queens Park could be the one to look at for this weekend. The Fifers are looking unstoppable right now and are currently priced up at 5/6.
For some reason Morton v Raith Rovers is garnering a lot of interest from traffic to the website today. It is somewhat unusual for one game to gain so much attention so far out from it being played out and I am not entirely sure as to the reasoning.
It is probably just symptomatic of it being an international week and with the site growing week on week it has become more noticeable. One to keep an eye on all the same.
