First of all, well done to anyone who followed my three tips last week, as you would have increased your stakes FIVEFOLD as a result.

Secondly, being a good sport, commiserations to the bookies! It’s 1-0 to Honest Oliver! Let’s see if we can make it 2-0, with this week.s hot tips:

Bolton v WBA

This is a dead cert to be the most boring game of the weekend! Even Bolton fans don’t like watching Bolton, and this fixture suggests it will be the same old dire that is dished up at the Reebok every other week. The 1-0 on offer with Betfred for a Bolton home win may sound decent value, but my guess is this could go either way. With The Trotters £11m striker crocked already, don’t expect a visual feast, or a goal glut!

Tip: 2-1 with Paddy Power says there will be less than 1.5 goals

Hull v Wigan

Hull have had a superb start to their debut Premiership campaign, whilst the Pie Eaters are still waiting for their first point. A foregone conclusion? I suspect not! Wigan have shown enough in their opening defeats that they’ll avoid trouble this season, and do have the players to grind out results in these fixtures.

Tip: Wigan away win at 2s with Boylesports

Chelsea v Spurs

Chelsea have hit the ground running this season, and are already 2 pts clear of the ‘World’s Greatest Team’. Now the they face Spurs’ expensively assembled superstars, who to be honest, are in complete disarray! Chelsea must surely blow them away with minimum fuss.

Tip: Chelsea to win ‘to nil’ is only 11/10 with Skybet, but it simply can’t be passed up.

Citywatch

It couldn’t happen could it? SWP to score the first goal against Sunderland is a whopping 16-1 with Bet365, and must be worth a dabble. For the less romantic, simply to win, we are 12/5 with several bookies, which may represent decent value for a team with a couple of wins under their belt.

Zenit St Petersburg v Yooonited – Who cares? No, seriously! Who cares?

Best of luck to everyone who follows me this weekend, and good luck to City on Sunday!
