We tasted some success last weekend with the Win 5fold doing just that at 9/2 – giving us a small piece of profit courtesy of The 4-4-2 System.
A couple of other selections weren’t too far off either, with just Chelsea, Sheffield Wednesday and Leeds letting me down for the 63/1 Win 10fold.
WINNER! The 9/2 Win 5fold lands to give us an 11 point return from the 4-4-2 System – a win is a win as they say! #lovelyjubbly https://t.co/HppTCA5ghE

They were up against Crystal Palace, Bolton and Reading respectively – three teams they should’ve beaten.
It was also a good weekend for my top scorer bets in the Premier League, Championship and League One, plus my humongous 15,300/1 ante-post each-way 4fold/ Lucky 15.
Gabriel Jesus notched two goals in Man City‘s 7-2 dismantling of Stoke, Britt Assombalonga hit one for Middlesbrough, and Charlie Wyke scored for Bradford.
Despite Luton hitting Stevenage for seven and James Collins – the fourth player in my pre-season 4fold – playing the whole game up front, he, somehow, didn’t manage to score.
Talking of Luton, I had a dream about them last week that I’d tipped them to finish bottom of the league.
At the time I was convinced I hadn’t but woke up thinking it was a reality. Fortunately, I soon realised it was a nightmare and I had of course tipped them for the title at 8/1. They’re now 6/4 best price to win the division so it’s looking like great value!
Sadly, United and Liverpool played out a dull 0-0 meaning my Big Match Preview selections didn’t notch.
The Champions League is back this week so there will be a bonus blog as always.
I started a new Long-Term Tip feature in last week’s Post-Weekend Review, tipping up Wolves +10 to win the Championship at 4/1.
That looks a great bit of value now as Bet Victor have cut them to 5/2 following a 2-0 win over Villa.
Fair play to Wolves, they looked decent but we simply didn’t turn up. I still think the now-odds of 14/1 make us a decent each-way bet for the Championship title. There’s a long way to go yet.
But onto this week’s selection – it’s Brazil to win the World Cup next year at 13/2.
At those odds they have to be among the value picks for the trophy with the incredible team they have – including the likes of Neymar, Jesus, Coutinho, Willian, Firmino, Casemiro, Thiago Silva, Marquinhos, Marcelo, Dani Alves and Ederson to name a few.
If Neymar and Jesus are in form in Russia they alone could win it for the Selecao!
Add to that, Brazil lost just one of their 18 World Cup qualifying matches, which sees them face the likes of Uruguay, Argentina, Chile, and Colombia, as opposed to a couple of half-decent sides and a bunch of no-hopers making up the numbers over in European qualifying.
But the most important stat for me is that their coach Tite has named 13 different captains since he got the job in June 2016, meaning they have leaders all over the pitch and even on the bench. They mean business.
I’ve invested a few free bets into them so far, and am doing the same with any loose change I get back from winning bets.
Let’s hope it’s a super Samba summer next year!
