Something about a Tuesday fires me the hell up. Tuesday screams “I’m ready to play ball” 6-4 in my last 2 boards, but I’m feelin’ good this January. Boardys, let’s frickin’ roll.
Sheffield got their first win in ages this past weekend in the FA Cup, and now they are favorites against Newcastle today at 1. I have no idea how this team is favored against a Newcastle team that isn’t an easy game by any means. Hammering Newcastle ML at +200. I have no confidence in Sheffield pulling out back-to-back wins. Also, it’s unpatriotic to not take Newcastle and their starting American defender DeAndre Yedlin.
Best game of the day is Wolves v. Everton. Two squads with a similar style and a similar recent run of play. Wolves are still missing Raul Jimenez, but Neto has those boys playing gritty footy. Everton on the other hand aren’t the team we raved about in October and November. Wouldn’t be a board without a draw, and a +200 draw is too juicy to not pounce on.
Going to take Manchester United -1.5 at +125 against Burnley as well. This is my least confident play only cause United could be looking ahead to their massive FA Cup match against Liverpool. Burnley are bad though so I think it’s worth the risk.
Big board on a big Tuesday of midweek, midday footy. My boss is looking over my shoulder while I type this out so until next big board, kick it easy lads.
