BEN'S BETS

30 August 2014

Another Saturday has rolled around as so Ben’s Bets is back with another three selections to make a few quid in the Football League with the league’s principal sponsors, Sky Bet.

Sign up to Sky Bet by clicking HERE and you can help with their ‘Transfer Fund’ promotion which has prizes for both you and for Yeovil Town.

Firstly, we start in the Championship and there is one side seemingly in free fall, Fulham.

The Cottagers are still pointless in the league after four games and only scraped past local rivals Brentford in the Capital One Cup.

They face Cardiff, a side with promotion ambitions and the early season form to back them up.

They’ve already claimed maximum points against Huddersfield and Wigan and have also made their way into the League Cup third round.

Fulham may be at home but the Bluebirds are still favourites and still excellent value.

Next, League One and a side who have started the season well enough to find themselves just one point off top spot, Peterborough.

The Posh are on the road this Saturday as they travel to Colchester.

United are already slumped in the relegation zone and look set for a long hard season.

Colchester have just the one point in the bag and I don’t think they’ll be adding to that any time soon with Kyle Vassell on form for Saturday’s visitors.

It’s a comfortable away win, a price of 13/10 is very big, it could be odds on given the two form of the two sides.

Finally, in League Two Northampton Town have acquired all but one of their points at home this season and with lowly Exeter visiting town this week it could well be a tally which is topped up.

Exeter lie in 21st, without a win this campaign and could be in for another weekend of disappointment.

Northampton are a shade of odds on, but with the added value coming from the other two sides in the treble, we shouldn’t mind backing a nice, home favourite.

So, combining these three in a £5 treble will return a rather tempting £52. Odds of over 9/1.

It’s our most ambitious treble of the season so far, but it could be the most profitable.

Remember to only gamble what you are comfortable with; a quid still wins a tenner – not to be sniffed at.
Yeovil Town Special.

Yeovil host Barnsley this Saturday in the clash of the relegated sides.

Last season we saw the Glovers take a very early lead at Oakwell and a goal from the most unlikely of sources, Luke Ayling, when the match hit Huish Park.

So, working on the same ideas – could the unlikely goal hero be the returning Seth Nana Twumasi?

He bagged in pre-season and will be chomping at the bit to get back in the team after suspension.
Nana is 12/1 to score anytime.

As for the early start, you can bet on Yeovil to score in the first ten minutes.

The Glovers to net before 9:59 on the clock is 13/2
