Today signals the start of the start of the season for many clubs up and down the country with a whole host of pre-season friendlies taking place.
Out of sheer boredom we’ve picked out some decent looking bets that could give you an interest today. Please remember to keep stakes very small if you’re having a punt. Please.
We’ve already highlighted the good value in backing Wolves to win at Scottish Division One side Livingston and they’re first on our list this afternoon at a tasty looking 11/10 but there looks to have been a fair bit of money for them already and they’ve been shortened to 8/11 (Bet365, BetVictor) already.
Nuneaton v Coventry
If there’s a bigger soap opera in football than that being payed out at Coventry City then we’d like to know about it. In administration and without a home stadium the club appears to be lurching from one crisis to the next. And to make matters worse they’ve got Steven Pressley at the helm! Just joking Elvis, in case you’re reading!
Today they travel to Nuneaton and to be honest I’m just keen to take on the Sky Blues in any game. The Conference side are 2/1 (Bet365) to take the win but the safer option could be to have the 5/4 (Bet365) on them in the Draw No Bet market.
Shrewsbury v Galatasaray
Yes, you read that correctly. Shrewsbury v Galatasaray.
Fair play to the League one side for securing one of Europe’s top clubs to the New Meadow for a game that will screened live on Turkish TV. But there should only be one Winner this afternoon. Gala are rightly short enough at 1/5 but offer more value to be winning at half-time and full-time at 8/13 (Bet365).
Elswhere we like the look of Port Vale to win at League of Ireland side Bray Wanderers at 2/5 (Bet365). Motherwell, who finished 2nd in last year’s SPL could defy their 11/4 (Bet365) odds and record a win at Doncaster. Burton should also get the better of Alfreton at 10/11 (Bet365).
