Time to try to make up for my losses

RIGHT. Last week was a disaster for TIALTNGO on the betting front. Have a look here and weep. Or laugh if you’re the sadistic type that takes joy from other’s misfortune.

Anyway nothing for it but to try and get back on the horse again so we’ve identified two bets for the weekend’s NFL action. Now, I’d imagine there won’t be too many rushing in headlong after me and that’s fair enough. But sure we’ll see how we go. We can’t get it so wrong again, can we?

DIFFERENT TIMES: Paidi O Se congratulates Maurice Fitzgerald after he scored THAT point to defeat Dublin in the 2001 All-Ireland Quarter Final after a closely fought game. However Kerry are operating at an altogether different level to the Dubs at the minute and we forecast an easy away victory this weekend.

However Kerry are operating at an altogether different level to the Dubs at the minute and we forecast an easy away victory this weekend.

My first bet is a 20euro bet on Kerry to beat Dublin (8/15) and Donegal to beat Westmeath (11/10) which will see a decent return of 64.40 with  Paddy Powers (plus your money back, of course). I reckon Kerry are capable of taking all but three teams in the country at the minute in second gear. Those counties are Galway, Derry and Tyrone. Dublin are someway off that level and home advantage won’t be too much help for them.

Westmeath are all but down. Donegal can go a long way to securing their Division 1 status with victory here and coming off the back of a surprise win over Tyrone, JJ Doherty’s men look a very attractive bet.

The second bet we have lined up is a longer priced accumulator. We’re including Kerry and Donegal in this and we’re adding Derry to beat Tyrone (6/5), Laois to beat Wexford (4/7) and Kildare to beat Fermanagh (4/6).

While Tyrone are in greater need of points than Derry, I can’t see Derry not going full hog for this one. Tyrone is their benchmark and a result against their near rivals would be a much greater fillip going into championship for Damien Cassidy and Co than, dare I say it, even a league title. And I’ve a sneaking fancy for Derry to do very well this year. They seem to have found the manager that can get a talented bunch of footballers playing in a constructive and coherent way.

Laois come into the game against Wexford buoyed by victory over Fermanagh and should have little trouble dealing with an abject Wexford side who have went into freefall this year after such a good 2008 and finally we expect Kieran McGeeney and Kildare to be able to get back to winning ways and reassert their push for promotion with victory over Fermanagh in Enniskillen.

On the second bet we’re waging a tener and would stand to collect 185.53 with Paddy Powers.

Here’s hoping!
