Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is (total £25)

It’s a new year. A new decade. And accordingly we have a new bookmaker who we now aim to fleece.

The first half of the season failed to work out how we planned in our betting post. Having sunk £50 into our account and being left with around half, we decided to change our bookmaker with the hope of changing our fortune, and at the very least helping ourselves to a NEW FREE £25 offer.

Betfair is one of the largest and most successful online betting operations in the world, where punters get odds which are, on average, 20% better than bookmakers. Unlike traditional bookmakers Betfair provides a service which allows punters to bet with other punters. As no bookmaker margins are included within the markets, betting odds on Betfair are usually far better than traditional bookmakers.

With Christmas bills to pay off, we hope to swell our account by cashing in on the following hot tip.

Monday sees half the Premier League face off in their second round of matches of the Christmas period, with Blackburn playing host to Sunderland as two of the most desperate form teams in the division look to secure themselves some seasonal respite. Both teams let 1-goal leads slip last time out as both Wigan and Everton clawed themselves a point in their respective fixtures.

Rovers are without a win in their last six Premier League matches, having drawn four and lost two games in that period. That record looks decidedly handsome when contrasted with the Black Cats, as Steve Bruce’s team are presently the most beatable team in the division having lost four and drawn two of their last six matches while conceding ten goals in the process.

Sunderland also have huge selection problems with defenders John Mensah, Michael Turner and Anton Ferdinand all out while Lee Cattermole and Kieran Richardson are likely to be sidelined in the midfield. Blackburn, in contrast, may welcome back Brett Emerton to their squad which could provide a timely offensive boost for a team that has scored just twice in their last six games.

Predicting the match to be low on entertainment, and hopefully even lower on goals, we are taking advantage of Betfair’s no-lose bet of £25 to stake £25 on there being under 2.5 goals in the game at 8/11.

Even if we lose we’ll get our money back, but a winning ticket will give us a tidy £43.18 return.
