Stoke V The Toon: Tips Round-Up

My Tips For Stoke City 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.

I remember a few weeks ago looking at the fixture list with my mate and commenting that the next six league games were all potentially winnable games.  Four games into that run and unfortunately it hasn't turned out like we were hoping which has meant another wash-out for my Newcastle tips.  My general football tips were profitable for the sixth match running, however, so on current form it seems like it's definitely wiser to bet with your head rather than your heart.

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

Chelsea V Fulham - Double Chance:
20 points on Fulham or Draw at 2.5 - WIN 50 points

Swansea V West Brom - Match Result:
20 points on West Brom at 3.0 - LOSS

Southampton V Norwich - Match Result:
15 points on Draw at 3.5 - WIN 53 points

Charlton V Peterborough - Match Result:
30 points on Charlton at 1.73 - WIN 52 points

Blackburn V Bolton - Match Result:
15 points on Draw at 3.4 - LOSS 
Making an overall return of 155 points from 100 points and therefore an overall profit of 55 points. 
A run of six consecutive profitable weeks for my general football tips has now seen them take the lead in the head to head running totals:

Newcastle tips – 5
General football tips –6

When the Toon are on a bad run, it's probably best to avoid betting on us altogether until results pick up, but we'll see how things go on Monday against Wigan.
