Welcome to the weekly blog that attempts to put some cash in your pockets. As ever we will start by looking at The Arsenal who visit Cardiff City this weekend.
I said on Twitter this week that I fancy The Arsenal to rip somebody a new one soon, Saturday could really be that day. Cardiff took points off Manchester United last week, but the bookies have Arsenal as odds-on favourites 4/7 with the draw 3/1, Cardiff are 5/1 to secure all three points.
If you fancy Olivier Giroud to repeat his feat last week and open the scoring, he’s 4/1 on the site I use. However as always it’s worth shopping around as he was priceboosted to 6/1 last week.
Aaron Ramsey to return to his old club and open the scoring is 13/2. Santi Cazorla must be due a goal soon and is 7/1 for the same market.
I think we may see a bit more of Theo Walcott this week and if he starts I rather fancy Theo to get in amongst the goals. Theo to score two is 10/1 with a hattrick 50/1.
Maybe Theo starting will help Mesut Ozil get his eye back in as, other than Ramsey, no other player seems to want to run on past Giroud at the moment (obviously Jack Wilshere did this well on Tuesday however!)
Over 4.5 Goals is a tasty 4/1 and must be worth a shout.
£10 Arsenal Bet of The Week
If Theo starts bang £5 on a brace @ 10/1 AND £5 on a Hat-Trick @ 50/1. If Theo doesn’t start then stick £10 on +4.5 @ 4/1.
£10 Team Acca Bet
QPR , Wolves, Brentford, Fleetwood, Liverpool @ 14.94 /1 returns £159.37
£10 Goalscoring Acca
Romelu Lukaku, Luiz Suarez, Walcott and Loic Remy to ALL score anytime @ 17.46 /1 returns £184.60 ( however I’m very tempted to have Lukaku, Remy, Theo but with Suarez to score a hattrick, which pays a massive 137.94 /1 which returns a Pre-Christmas bonus of £1389.38 )

Born in Mining Town of Doncaster in 1973. Supported Arsenal FC thanks to my first footballing hero who was Pat Jennings whom I loved. My first Arsenal Game was an away game at Grimsby Town in January 1986 ( 4-3 win thanks to a Charlie Nicholas Hat-Trick of Free-kicks). I’ve since followed The Arsenal Home, Away & Abroad and my wife still doesn’t know how much I paid for the CL final ticket v Barca!
My All-time Fave’ Arsenal player is probably Dennis Bergkamp although I have soft spots for Tony Adams, Rocky & Steve Williams (!).
I`m a Proud Father of 6 who doesn’t get to as many games as I’d like for financial reasons (6 kids, you do the maths) but lives and breathes The Arsenal.
I write occasional blogs.
