Another cup upset
Aldershot are fast becoming a boggy team for me. Aldershot again provide a cup shock this time the victims Carlisle. Carlisle were on a five game unbeaten run, winning four of them, heading into this game. Aldershot only have one win game in League 2 but a win against West Ham in the cup and a draw during the weekend could see their fortunes changing. In future, I think I won’t bet for or against Aldershot and maybe I underestimated them.
Paolo man handling someone? Never…
Elsewhere in the Carling Cup, Southampton continued their sterling form by beating a Swindon Town who are in trouble. Paolo Di Canio had a small spat with striker Clarke at the end of the 3-1 defeat. Swindon have now suffered five losses in six games and betting against them looks a prospect while things go from bad to worse. Southampton wore a Brazil coloured kit. Okay, they may not play like Brazil, but they are dominating other teams as if they were. The Saints have won six out of seven games in all competitions and I’ll be betting on them while the traders continue to be naive in their pricing.
We’ll score more than you
Huddersfield continue to show their ability to find the back of the net time and time again which makes them good prospects for both teams to score and over 2.5 goals. Northampton are now on a five game losing streak which makes them targets to bet against whomever they might play.
