We are off to Russia for Monday’s bets. Lokomotiv Moscow are the form team in Russia, winning 6 of their last 7 and scoring plenty of goals in the process. They have scored in every one of their 10 league matches this season, on 6 occasions netting two or more. I will be very surprised if Tomsk can hold them at bay given they have conceded 9 goals in their 5 away matches. 8 of Lokomotiv’s 10 games have gone over 2.5 goals and 7 of Tomsk’s 10 games have also broken the 2.5 goal barrier. With over 2.5 goals as low as 3/4 in places, the standout 10/11 looks well worth taking.

At first glance you would expect FK Rostov to see off bottom club Ural comfortably. However their current form reads P5 W1 L4. The goal stats for those 5 matches read: Scored 1 Conceded 12. Ural are rock bottom of the league but appear to play better away from home (W1 D1 L1) scoring 5 goals in the process. It’s 4/7 for Ural to grab a goal here but a massive 3/1 they get two, which is something they have managed in two of their three away games. Rostov could easily bounce back to form and thrash them but that price is worth a speculative bet to small stakes.

Eek, pretty much all profit lost in 2 days. That’s the down side to football betting, the prices are always so low. Still, I’m keen on how Nick makes his picks and am confident it’ll turn round quickly. This service has been superb so far in terms of results and customers service and is still 3 points in profit anyway. I’m happy with how this is going.
