For everybody connected with West Ham the start of the Premier League campaign must have been a perplexing one. Their team thrived in Slaven Bilic’s debut campaign as Hammers boss, finishing seventh in the Premier League and just mis...

Goals is the way to go at City this weekend

Manchester City have looked impressive under former-Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola in the Premier League so far this season. Somehow the Catalan One seems to have added something extra to an already tasty attacking blend at Eastlands. This w...

Liverpool a punters nightmare

by Bum Rush Fri 9, 2016 11:50 AM

Liverpool have become the Jekyll and Hyde of the Premier League under their affable but nutty German boss Jurgen Klopp. From the German’s touchlines antics, I am surprised he has not burst out of his clothes and went on the rampage at any Pr...

A dream bet......

1582 0

Does anyone else have the same dream that we have here at TBB?? The one where you walk into a musty old Bookie's office and ask for a £500 fourfold on Chelsea to beat Hull, Hull to lose to Chelsea, Costa to score two or more and Chelsea to win by two or more?

In your dream the bookie might look back with doey eyes and hand you the betting receipt. In reality of course, he would simply tell you to fuck off, since the legs of the fourfold are contingent on each other. In other words, if Costa scores two, Chelsea will almost certainly win that game etc etc. This week though might just offer up a rare opportunity to benefit from an accumulator whose legs, while not strictly contingent, are potentially strongly related.

During this boresome international break, you can bet your bottom dollar that the referees will be meeting and that top of the agenda will be what to do about the issue of holding in the penalty area.

In the minds of just about every football fan, this season's new directive was not only welcome, but long overdue. The situation had, by the end of last term become so completely out of control that even Chris Smalling, who held on for dear life at each and every corner he faced, was only penalised twice during the whole campaign! The problem is that however welcome the new ruling was at the time, only Mike Dean has so far had the balls to carry out orders and the whole thing is now teetering on the brink of farce.

So, there is at least a chance (and possibly a very good one) that the referees, having been given the proverbial rocket up the arse, approach this Saturday's fixtures with a totally new outlook. If that's the case, we could have for one week only, penalties awarded in virtually every game. This is by no means a certainty, granted, but consider this; There are 8 matches on Saturday and the 'penalty awarded' bet in each case is a little over 3/1, meaning that a £1 bet on the accumulator pays almost 100 grand! With five folds, four folds, trebles etc, it is easy to get a life changing payout for as little as a tenner and a much more likely bet than the lottery!

Generally available - bet with: any bookmaker who you particularly dislike.
