June 2013

20th June, 12pm

So we are looking at the correct score market for the game tonight, and we now have a full range of odds:

6-0 9.5
7-0 8.5
8-0 10.0
9-0 11.0
10-0 11.0
11-0 13.0
12-0 21.0
13-0 29.0
14-0 34.0

I don’t think it will get any higher than this, even Tahiti will keep the odd attack out! Plus there’s every chance Spain will ease off a bit if it’s getting a bit too embarrasing.

Looking at the odds alone, it seems 7-0 is about favourite, but I think they might notch a couple more than that. I’m going to start at 9-0, and go through to 13-0. That’s 5 bets, any one of which would return a decent profit. Good luck, enjoy the game and the goals!

Todays bet:

Confederations Cup, Spain v Tahiti. Thursday 20th June, 8pm.

Correct score picks, £2 per bet.

9-0 through to 13-0, total of £10 for 5 bets.

Good luck!

A few games into the Confederations Cup already, with a fantastically entertaining game being played out last night between Nigeria and Tahiti. The supposed no-hopers from the South Pacific giving an impressive account of themselves – going forward at least – and only losing 6-1. In truth it could have been double figures for Nigeria and they fully jusitifed their price of 1.07 going into the game. Tahiti aren’t going to win any matches, but they have already won a lot of friends.

On Thursday they take on reining World Champions Spain, and 2 days before kick off you can barely get a price on Spain. The exchanges are loaded up with people who want to back them at 1.01, but can’t find anyone to lay it! A look at the goals also shows how remarkably one-sided it all is, with the Over 8.5 goals market (Yes – EIGHT!) still an odds-on price!

It promises to be an entertaining match on Thursday, and goals are absolutely assured. I’m fully expecting the Spanish to fill their boots here, and it may well just make double figures. Although Tahiti showed some decent attacking intent against Nigeria I can’t see them troubling the Spanish back line, and there may be some value in a few correct score picks. Lets have a look at the prices:

8-0 10.0
9-0 11.0
10-0 10.0
11-0 13.0

So far the bookies only seem to be going as high as 11-0. It’s not quite high enough to cover every possibility, so check back before the game to see what our selections are going to be.

We finished May with a bet on the England v Republic of Ireland friendly, a stab at over 2.5 goals. Unfortunately it was a rather dull 1-1, although chances did come and go, England didn’t really perform and our bet was just short. Shame we hadn’t tried the same bet on the Brazil game, where a decent second half performance saw a creditable 2-2 draw. I’m also afraid to say that we finished May with a loss, bringing and end to our EIGHT month winning streak. Shame, but a very respectable run nonetheless.

We hope to return to form in June, and the FBS tipster will be looking at the summer of sport over the coming months, before the return to top level football in August.

Here some of the highlights for the summer of sport we’ve got to look forward to:

June 2013:

French Open finals.
Cricket – one day internationals.
Football – Confederations Cup, where a strong field are competing in Brazil.
British Lions tour.
Royal Ascot.
Tour de France.
Formula 1. British Grand Prix.

July 2013:

Wimbledon tennis finals.
The Ashes, England v Australia first test.
German Grand Prix.
The Open – one of the major golf tournaments.
World matchplay darts.
King George VI stakes at Ascot.
UEFA womens championships.
Glorious Goodwood.

A fine summer of sport I’m sure you’ll agree! Watch this space for a bet shortly, our man will be looking at some of the opening games of the Confederations Cup and we’re hoping to have a guest writer previewing Royal Ascot.
