Regardless of your experience in the market, a late goal in a match to win you a bet does bring a certain relief and thrill. The round of matches has plenty of opportunities and I am confident that we will end the month well.
Don't be afraid to take on big names
Your betting strategy should always evolve as football and the fortunes of teams change. Periodically, you should always study your own bets and strategy and see how you can improve things.
The fortunes of some relatively big names have changed over the last couple of years and don't be afraid to oppose certain teams. Inter, Valencia, Schalke and Sevilla are examples of teams who have all appeared to have regressed or are in transitional periods and they should be taken on in the market place.
They will still attract support in the market because they are traditionally strong teams in their respective leagues but there is value in opposing them. For example, Sevilla, in their last 20 away matches in La Liga, have only won once. Systematically laying them in these matches has produced 19 winning transactions and incurred only one loss.
This weekend's tips
Looking ahead to the weekend, Manchester United look an attractive price at 19/10 (2.90) to beat rivals Liverpool. They defeated them twice last season and Liverpool tend to go off too short in the market for their matches.
The Reds get priced up as a top-four team when their real position is lower than that. In a tight contest, the draw no bet option is worth considering as you get your stake returned in event of a draw. Paddy Power are evens (2.0) on Manchester United draw no bet.
In Italy, last season Catania only lost three times at home in Sicily. They are a solid and talented team and I am happy to oppose Inter in this contest. Paddy Power go 11/10 (2.10) on Catania draw no bet.
