Crouching Tigers Hiding Goals

There are plenty of midweek football games to bet on but taking a selective & serious approach can be sensible when there are plenty of opportunities, getting really stuck into your most fancied bets is often more rewarding than many bets paying out small amounts, we've looked right through the leagues & found two games where we feel confident there's money to be made. We want regular followers to start thinking about their best bets for the weekend too & once you've made your selections send them through on Twitter to @LikeBuyingMoney using the hashtag #likebuyingmoney, we'll post them up on our regular followers' blog - it's a great way to get involved & also gets you thinking & planning your bets rather than impulsive last minute wagers. If you aren't already following us on Twitter why not?! It's great fun & if you already have an account you can find us @LikeBuyingMoney or just by clicking the follow button at the top of this page.

(Crewe's rising star Nick Powell is in fine form & looking to propel them towards the playoffs)

In League Two, Crewe Alexandra entertain Bradford City at the Alexandra Stadium, the hosts are in 9th position & chasing a play-off place whilst Bradford are in 18th & looking to pull away from the relegation spots. Crewe are in good form currently & beat league leaders Swindon Town 2-0 at the weekend, they have won their last two league games which has stretched their unbeaten run to seven games with three wins & four draws. They've been especially good at home recently, picking up 17 points out of a possible 21 & in Nick Powell they have a player bang in form with five goals in his last six games. Bradford have lost their last two games against AFC Wimbledon & Aldershot Town which has seen a run of three defeats from five league games, their away results have been poor all season & ten defeats out of 18 games sees them with the 3rd worst record in the league. With three away defeats in row now for Bradford & the current form of Crewe we can't see pass a comfortable home victory at evens with Bet365 & Boylesports.

(Hull captain Jack Hobbs is marshalling his defence excellently)

In the Championship current leaders Southampton travel north to face Hull City & their impregnable defence at the KC Stadium. Hull haven't lost since Nick Barmby was appointed as permanent manager back in early January & have conceded just 3 goals in 11 games as the former attacking midfielder has made his side one of the most difficult to play against in the league & to 7th place just outside the playoff spots. Hull haven't exactly beenn setting the world allight in terms of scoring goals & wins & have seen 5 nil-nils in their recent 11 game unbeaten sequence, that stingy defence will be key to keeping Southampton & their quality strikeforce at bay. The Saints have also been in great form, unbeaten in 10 in the league & star striker Rickie Lambert has been in fine form, scoring a hattrick as they came from 2-1 down to win against Millwall on Saturday. With 68 goals from their 37 games there isn't much that stops Southampton scoring but we think that just makes it all the more likely that Barmby will set his men up to frustrate the visitors, Southampton were recently comprehensively outplayed by Leeds at Elland Road & were slightly fortunate on Saturday as they were awarded two late penalties to rescue it at Millwall & we're not keen on 6/4 for them to win. We do like 4/5 about there being less than 2.5 goals as 13 of Hull's last 16 have featured 2 or less, with fewer goals in a game the draw also becomes more likely & backing 0-0 & 1-1 at coupled odds of just bigger than 3/1 makes more appeal than backing the draw at 23/10.

Crewe Alexandra to beat Bradford City at evens (Bet365 & Boylesports)
Under 2.5 goals in Hull City v Southampton at 4/5 (BetVictor)
Hull v Southampton correct score to be 0-0 at 10/1 (Stan James) & 1-1 at 6/1 (William Hill)
