The bookies appear to want to make everybody's Christmas come early with the great prices on offer for Chris Powell's on fire Charlton side, first we got 15/8 for them to beat average Colchester away from home in midweek & now we get 4/5 for them to beat poor Scunthorpe at home. Charlton were always likely to look dangerous in attacking areas but Powell seems to have organised them well defensively, restricting Notts County & then Colchester to just 2 shots on target in their last 2 games, both away. Scunthorpe have an attacking attitude & can be dangerous but Charlton should pick them apart on the counter & could win this by a margin, no need to be clever this week trying to pick a big price one - the 4/5 is huge value & should be taken before the bookies realise their mistake & shorten it.
This Sunday sees Birmingham return from their foreign escapade in Madeira to face the inform Middlesbrough at the Riverside. Middlesbrough have won three from three in league and cup after the disappointment of conceding an injury time equaliser on the opening day against Portsmouth. Whilst Birmingham are in the middle of a transitional period with new boss Chris Houghton still searching for his first choice starting eleven and lacking firepower due to attacking injuries. So we fully expect Boro, with red hot Marvin Emnes (6 goals in 4 games), to continue their fine start to the season at the best price of 6/5.
Likebuyingmoney are lucky enough to be at Old Trafford on Monday night for the clash between Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur. We have picked out over 2.5 goals, priced at 4/6 for our best bet in this one. Both teams are more than capable of causing the other problems and we think there will be at least three goals in the game. With question marks about Manchester Untied's new signing David De Gea and injury to a variety of The Red Devils defenders we think Spurs have what it takes to break the United resolve which could be the key to this being a winning selection.
