into the betting jungle of 2013 we step. as always as punters our single biggest weapon is that we need only play where the odds are in our favour.
not for me, bullsh1t such as worrying about mcmanus plot horses etc. do your homework and you will get rewarded most of the time.

two bets must be done now, you will have to wait 6 weeks in one case, 5 months in the other, to get a return, the odds are now on our side.

(prices mentioned below are those offered as i type by the firm in tallaght whose share price was aided by An Post recently)

bet 1

NPower league 1: outright:  Bournemouth 11/2, 1/4 123...a decent wedge each way.

best team in division, top manager, have the big momentum.....tranmere and doncaster currently atop about to sink....dangers are sheffield united and brentford.
bournemouth have a tough game this saturday, they can win that and then have 3 easy games for the rest of the month...the rest at the top have a hard schedule this month.....the fa cup draw with wigan and the ensueing replay is an unwelcome distraction.....i am certain, by feb 1st, bournemouth will be within 4 points of the top and with the best squad in the division(and not depending on loanees like the other leaders), they can go on and win the division.

bet 2
all ireland intermediate club football championship:
all in on finuge at 2/1.

the north kerrymen won the munster title without their two inter county stars, eamonn fitzmaurice and paul galvin.

that pair will be back for a semi final they will win against the final they will play the winners of charlestown or croke park i would make finuge 4/7 to win either match up.

2/1 is an outstanding price, as it covers problematic draws.

in my book, bournemouth are 5/2 shots and finuge 1/2 shots.

enjoy the ride!.

Crewe are the key, seem to be playing everyone in the top 6 bar Bournemouth

won a cup yesterday so they are useful but could be pickled in gargle and hungover for the rest of the season.

It'll be interesting no matter what.

It's hard to see anyone other than Doncaster winning it now. 4 games left, the next 3 of which are against teams in mid-table with nothing left to play for realistically. Sheffield United are a danger with 5 of their 6 remaining fixtures a home. Brentford are the only other danger to the place part of the bet IMO (I'm optimistically writing off Yeovil & Swindon!).

It's going down to the last week anyway

Yeah feckin Doncaster and Brentford both came from behind to win today. They actually play each other on the last day of the season in Brentford so if Bournemouth can win their last 2 a draw in that match could be enough for the league.

Swindon's defeat means they can't catch Bournemouth now

Sheffield Utd play at home to Brentford on Tuesday night where a draw would be a good result while Yeovil are away to Oldham on Tuesday as well, with Oldham having a good win today hopefully they can do us a favour there
Report Cupwinkcook April 14, 2013 12:23 AM BST
Bournemouth should win their next game, last one will be tougher.

Goal difference edged better today, but still not conclusive.

Crewe look jaded now and will probably be beaten in their remaining matches by hungrier teams.

It's all about the 6 pointers, draws are what we want.

bournmouths last game is against tranmere who currently have a slim chance of making the play offs.lets hope by the time of the game they have nothing to play for.the fact that 2 of the games remaining are sheff utd v brent and brent v donny is a big advantage to our chances of collecting..

Or maybe that It's a clear example of the "Lemming effect".People are who incapable of original thought and hence just follow.

I have the utmost respect for KL,and have no doubt that he is a very successful racing punter due to his shrewdness and the amount of time/effort that he puts into it(aided by the fact that he works in the industry).However it's next to impossible to be a professional racing punter combined with a professional football punter due to time constraints.

I haven't formed this opinion from a sample size of one thread(wouldn't be very conclusive)but hey don't ever question the herd mentality.
Report kavvie April 18, 2013 10:56 AM BST

Report dj876 April 18, 2013 11:02 AM BST
Just my opinion Kavvie and I wish ye the best of luck with the bet btw but how many of ye could name a Bournemouth player??

How can ye merit the logic of the reasoning if ye are not experts in League 1 soccer or Gaa Club Championships.

Ye are not forming an opinion ye are following blindly,the same way in Ireland when people were buying houses with 2% rental yields.
Report Ozymandius April 18, 2013 11:03 AM BST
that's nonsense, with respect.

Following Keen leaders tips on occasion does not imply that you are incapable of independent thought.

The irony is that refusing to follow them on the basis that you are an independent thinker singles you out as an inflexible non-independent thinker.  Surely independent thinkers, welcome advice, and then make their own decisions?

His track record is far beyond any other poster on here. Personally, I don't act on any other posters tips with any sort of consistency, if at all.   Reasoned arguments are given by KL for selections and you can choose to follow or not.  He may not be a professional football punter but you have to respect his judgement.
Report dj876 April 18, 2013 11:06 AM BST
"Surely independent thinkers, welcome advice, and then make their own decisions?"

To make one's own opinion after taking into account the welcome advice,would you not have to have a strong knowledge of the betting medium??

Ozy have you an in depth knowledge of Division 1 soccer??
Report Ozymandius April 18, 2013 11:11 AM BST
As you can see from my first post on this thread dj, very close to the top, I consulted a close friend who is a lifelong Bournemouth supporter and knows the league back to front.  He concurred with the assesment given by KL and I placed the bet.

And at this point in time, I am very glad that I did.
Report dj876 April 18, 2013 11:22 AM BST
Personally I would have to understand the market,I can understand considering other people's point of view and even them assisting me in my conclusion.

So your argument is that you didn't bet blind because you got two people's opinion??but admit that you have little or no knowledge of English Division 1 soccer??

As regards betting blind, my sources, two good judges, concurred.  That was good enough for me to have an interest. 

Now admittedly dj, I would need to be personally informed on the market at hand to have a very significant bet, perhaps that is what you are referring to?
