Bet Picks: 8th September 2018

Not a lot of league fixtures this weekend, League 1 and League 2 as well as a few MLS fixtures. Following on from the success of our both teams to score double bets, we are now onto Bet 3 of the snakes and ladders bet. We have £20 in the pot from this as 'extra lives' if this one loses. This weeks bet see us staking £80.44 to win £231.57, if you are unsure on what this bet is, read about our snakes and ladders bet here.

The first game we have gone for is Bristol Rovers V Plymouth, the last 4 meetings have ended with both teams scoring, while at home 2 in 3 of Bristols games have ended with both teams scoring, while 1 in 3 of Plymouths away games have. I really like the recent history of this game, an for me, had decent odds of 1.73 considering this.

Next up is Gillingham V AFC Wimbledon, again recent history is 3 from 3 for both teams to score, Gillingham at home have had 3 games in 3 end with both teams to score, while away from home AFC Wimbledon are yet to achieve a game ending with both teams scoring.

For both games it is the recent history that has swung me, there were a few other games I liked the look of but the odds were shorter. If this bet comes in, I might choose to take a few hundred out, instead of following the snakes and ladders guide lines, for any bet like this, it is always important to take cash out, for example if this lands, there would be £250 in the snakes and ladders pot, taking £200 out covers 20 snakes and ladders bets, but the £50 means we can start at bet 2 again.
