Swansea V The Toon: Tips Round-Up

My Tips For Swansea 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 SkyBet.com.  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 went for a confident set of Toon tips this week, but unfortunately although we were the stronger side in the second half, Luke Moore's late winner combined with a couple of missed chances for the Toon meant my Newastle tips were a total wash-out this week.  My general football tips got back to winning ways though, sneaking a narrow profit...

Man United V Norwich - Win To Nil:
25 points on Man United To Win To Nil at 2.0 - WIN 50 points

Chelsea V West Brom - Double Chance:
20 points on West Brom or Draw at 2.88 - LOSS

Southampton V QPR - Team Total Goals:
20 points on QPR Not To Score at 2.75 - LOSS

Tottenham V Arsenal - First Goalscorer:

10 points on Gareth Bale To Score First at 5.5 - WIN 55 points

Wolves V Watford - Match Result:
25 points on Watford at 2.30 - LOSS

Making an overall return of 105 points and therefore an overall profit of 5 points.

That makes it six of the last seven weeks that my general football tips have made a profit so on current form it would seem that it's definitely wiser to bet with your head rather than your heart.  The head to head totals now stand at:

Newcastle tips - 10.5
General football tips - 13.5

As usual I'll be skipping the Europa League match against Anzhi Makhachkala on Thursday and making my next set of tips for Sunday's important home league game against Stoke.

Footnote:  A small bet can make the match more exciting but gambling can be a risky business so never bet more than you can afford to lose.  The safest way to bet is with a free bet, so if you'd like the chance to claim a totally free £10 bet then sign up to SkyBet today using the banner link below:
