Come take us and other members of the public on at:
The last weekend of the Premier league season and the final matches for some of the biggest names in the british game for the past decade or 2 which will help fill media airtime no doubt, as the significance of the majority of this week's games is non existent. Except for the big 2 of course.
As such, it becomes a very high variance weekend for picking bets with team selections and motivation uncertain. As a result, for those punters with a higher risk appetite/variance tolerance, on top of the West Brom mentioned abve there is scope for placing several outsider bets this weekend even if it is just with a view to closing out in play, including: Everton at 5.5 (BetFred), the Liverpool lay at 4.7 (Pinnacle), the Villa win at 3.95 (Pinnacle).
For Spurs and Arsenal fans looking to emotionally hedge, Arsenal fans have a reasonable opportunity in the Newcastle win price at 6 (BoyleSports), whereas the optimal time for a Spurs bet was before the Arsenal v Wigan game at just below evens. For a Spurs fan looking to hedge now, the Arsenal 2-0 win looks the most profitable route at 10.5 with BetVictor since if Newcastle go 1-0 up, you can straight back the Arsenal win/to finish 4th bet at at bigger price in play.
Outside of straight football bets, we've turned our attention recently to a new weekly fantasy football cash game at www.playon.co.uk
The site enables you to challenge players one to one (including site ambassadors Robbie Fowler, Les Ferdinand, and Julian Dicks) or join multi-player games, and includes a guaranteed £1000 game. Obviously there are only 2 game weeks left this season and it does lack volume of players at present; however the simple format and originality of the game, combined with the unparalleled live experience will inevitably make this game more popular in the 13/14 season. As such it does represent an opportunity to take advantage of 'fish' type money as in the early days of online poker, so it's worth taking a look at now.
