Alfie Mawson and London Prize delivered profit at big odds for members of VG Tips. Just two of my winning tips on Saturday March 11th.
What’s it all about with Alfie? A few weeks ago I tipped the Swansea City central defender to score the first goal in a game at odds of 30/1. He did just that. Yesterday, for the Swans match at Hull, I selected him to score at any stage of the game at odds of 14/1. Alfie left it late but, sure enough, up he popped with a late header.
What attracted me both times was not just the fact that Alfie Mawson has a decent goalscoring record for a defender, both with his former club Barnsley and now at Swansea. It was also that one bookie, Paddy Power, priced him up to score at much bigger odds than their opposition.
Proof once again that bookies can still get the odds wrong. Spotting their mistakes isn’t easy. But that’s what I try to do week in, week out for members of VG Tips.
Paddy Power offered the biggest price about Mawson scoring. I’d likely not have bothered backing him to score anytime at Hull had they been offering the same price as other bookies, 8/1 or less. But for the second time this year, members of VG Tips have benefited from Paddy underestimating the chances of the playing scoring, either first or at any stage of a 90 minute match. But let’s keep that a secret between us punters. Don’t tell Paddy!
London Prize was another double figure price winning tip for members of VG Tips. 10/1 winner of the Imperial Cup.
London Prize attracted my attention not just because of the price on offer in a race where you were wise to bet each way. His earlier races on the flat led me to believe the handicap mark of 128 over hurdles gave him every chance of being involved in the finish of the race, at the very least.
I alerted members to the fact that London Prize had only finished out of the first three once in his past eight races, that was when falling at Musselburgh in February. The piece of previous form that caught my attention the most was when he’d beaten Coeur De Lion on the flat last October. That’s because the last named had subsequently got within two lengths of a horse that is highly fancied to win a big race at the Cheltenham Festival next week, Defi Du Seuil.
Which brings me to the reason why many lapsed or new members benefited from that winner and/or the winning football tips at the weekend.
They joined or returned to VG Tips via a special offer. £10 for racing and football tips for the next month.
That covers all the top class racing at Cheltenham, the Grand National meeting at Aintree in April, race meetings between those times and, of course, the next month of football analysis and tips.
The door to that special offer will shut on that day, before the first race at the 2017 Cheltenham Festival. You can join for only £10 via this link. Just scroll down the page until you see the 50% CHELTENHAM/AINTREE DISCOUNT BOX.
Other profitable football tips on Saturday included Burton Albion winning for members at 29/20, Manchester City to win to NIL at odds of 7/5, Bradford City winning at Evens and Brighton winning last Friday night at 5/6.
But not everything went to plan. A last minute goal by Birmingham City at Cardiff brought down my 6/1 accumulator treble.
You can’t win ’em all. But at VG Tips we win more than we lose, so ensuring an annual profit each and every year.
