Since mid April this blog has been taking a breather. The loss of £18.50 when Chelsea drew with Wigan caused a lot of disappointment and made me realise that it was going to be very difficult to beat my target of a 6% return over the year.
Currntly at 4.5%, I think it would be a shame to not even try to get over the 6% tagrget with a bet on the final league games of the season.
Looking at the Premiership, the most obvious games are Chelsea v Bolton and Man Utd v Wigan.
Although I don't usually bet on away games, I can't see a problem with this one, as Man Utd need a win to gurantee them the Premier League title. Chelsea too need a win and face Bolton at Stamford Bridge.
Wigan are also safe from the drop, however Bolton could get relegated if they concede a lot of goals against Chelsea while the teams around them get good results. Therefore I expect bolton to defend doggedly.
Man Utd have odds of 1/4 to beat Wigan. But it will be my first ever bet on an away side.
I am going to put £10 on a Man Utd win and hope for the best!
