Southampton V The Toon: Tips Round-Up

My Tips For Southampton V Newcastle United: Round-Up

Every match I give myself 100 points to place a few hypothetical bets on Newcastle and 100 points to place a few general football bets using the odds available from  I then compare how the two sets of bets perform and analyse whether it's better to bet with your heart or your head.

As my Newcastle tips this week were based around us getting at least a draw, or at the very least a goal, our 2-0 defeat to Southampton meant a complete wipe-out for my Newcastle tips.  I continued to do okay with my general football tips as they made a profit for the 5th week running, but that was little consolation for our current disappointing form.

This is the breakdown on how my general football tips performed...

Tottenham V West Ham - Double Chance: 
25 points on West Ham or Draw at 2.25 - LOSS

Everton V Norwich - Double Chance: 
25 points on Norwich or Draw at 2.75 - WIN 69 points

Chelsea V Man City - Full Time Result: 
20 points on Man City at 2.8 - LOSS

Swansea V Liverpool - Full Time Result: 
15 points on Draw at 3.5 - WIN 53 points

Leeds V Crystal Palace - Half Time/Full Time: 
15 points on Crystal Palace/Crystal Palace at 3.75 - LOSS

Making an overall return of 122 points from 100 points and therefore an overall profit of 22 points.

A run of five consecutive profitable weeks for my general football tips has now seen them level things with my Newcastle tips in the head to head running totals:

Newcastle tips – 5
General football tips – 5

When the Toon are in a bit of a rough patch of form, it's probably best to avoid betting on us altogether until results pick up, but we'll see how things go on Wednesday away to Stoke.
