Welcome to my weekend bets blog. There are regular bets I get on nice and early to try and capture early appealing odds, as well as free games that give me chances of winning handsome rewards. These early bets will be shared here for you every week throughout the football season. Please take note that I am sharing my weekend bets with you here, not offering any type of tipping service. This page is free to view and the bets mentioned are bets I will be placing. They come with plenty of research sat behind them. Feel free to follow the bets if you like them, or disregard if you don’t. Here are my bets for the weekend commencing Saturday 17th February 2018.
Weekend bets for football
My weekend bets can be found here every week, or alternatively you can follow me on the Bettracks app. I use this app to track my bets each week and the app has a feature that allows other users to view your tracked accumulators. Download the app, search for betting apps using the user search feature and then tap follow.
The app also has an intelligent stats system built in to upcoming fixtures that gives you a percentage chance of a particular event occurring in a match, based on each team’s previous five fixtures. For example the chance of over 1.5 goals in a particular match or Both teams scoring. This gives you a completely new edge to your betting and I use it regularly to help with my Goals Galore coupon (mentioned below).
You will also get notifications within the app to let you know every time I place a new tracker on the Bettracks app. Give it a go, it comes highly recommended from us. You can download the Bettracks app both on iOS and Android here – http://app.bettracks.co.uk/
Colossus bets syndicates.
I have really been enjoying the Colossus bets syndicates recently. This is a great idea that provides a pools based system where you can invest in a percentage of a ticket alongside other people in order to get a share of the big jackpot. There are various tickets available including win/draw/win tickets, correct score tickets, handicap tickets and under/overs goals tickets. My personal favourite is the Win/draw/win market and I will be creating a ticket each weekend in the hope of getting some large returns back. Cash-outs are offered at every 45 minute and 90 minute intervals which are controlled by the syndicate captain who has the choice to partially cash out, fully cash out or stay in for the big prize. Check out my ticket for this weekend as an example;
I have chosen a pick15 ticket, providing me with fifteen matches across Saturday and Sunday to predict who will win or draw in each fixture. Each ticket line requires a £0.50 stake in my ticket this weekend but to give me more chance I have chosen multiple lines – 54 in fact. Because I have had more than one prediction across the same line or fixture, this doubles the amount of lines on the ticket and as such the ticket cost doubles also.
This ticket gives me 54 different chances of being correct and therefore the total ticket cost is £27. Now this is quite a lot of money to risk individually, which is where the syndicate idea makes a lot of sense. There is £200,000 on offer as a jackpot prize which will be shared across all winning tickets in the pool. That’s a lot of money to go around and the syndicate allows you to put a percentage of the money in to get the same percentage back should the ticket win.
I have staked 10% of the ticket, costing me £2.70. This will see me get 10% of the ticket winnings should it land. Therefore I am playing for a personal jackpot of £20,000. I will be keeping my eye on the ticket throughout the weekend to see what cash outs (if any) we get offered.
With me staking 10% that means there is still 90% of the ticket remaining for others to stake on. In order for the bet to run the ticket has to be 90% full. If the ticket does not fill up, those who had invested a stake in the ticket will see their stakes returned and the ticket voided.
Feel free to stake a percentage if you like the look of the ticket although be warned, sometimes these tickets fill fast so apologies in advance if the ticket is full by the time you get to it. Registered Colossus Bets members can find the ticket by tapping or clicking on the following link – https://tickts.info/p3cHGB?p=1 You can also tap/click here to register if you have not done so already and then join the ticket.
Paddy Power Hotshots
A completely free game to take advantage of here hosted by the famous Irish bookmaker. Paddy Power will give you six matches and all you have to do is predict the first goalscorer from each of those particular six games. Get them all right and you could win a prize jackpot of up to a whopping £100,000! Worthwhile adding to your weekend bets in my opinion.
There’s no minimum amount of spending needed in the week to play and gives you another great chance to win a substantial amount of cash without having to put your hand in your pocket. Due to the fact it is FA Cup weekend this weekend, there will be no game available. Next game is for fixtures starting on 24th February.
Once again you need to register for a Paddy Power account to play. The process is very straightforward, only takes a couple of minutes and also gives you a new customer reward of a £20 risk free bet. Terms and conditions apply and you must be 18 or above to register. Click below to go straight to Paddy Power.

Goals Galore coupon
I also enjoy participating in the Goals Galore coupon and a small wager here is a normal feature of my weekend bets. This is a mobile friendly coupon that is dedicated towards the both teams to score market. This market is becoming ever more popular due to the fact you can still have an interest in the game even if one team are leading heavily. As long as both teams score before the final whistle your bet wins. the more selections you add to your betting slip from the coupon, the bigger the odds and returns back if the bet wins.
The Goals Galore coupon is run by Betfred and is available from the Betfred app. You will need to be registered to be able to play and will also require you to place a stake once registered (i.e the Goals Galore coupon is not a free game). Here are my selections for this weekend’s Goals Galore coupon. These selections have been selected due to the statistics gained from the Bettracks app. The app shows these games to have the highest likeliness based on each team’s previous 5 matches.
Register today and get £30 in free bets once registered. Simply make your first bet a £10 selection after registering and the free bets will be placed in to your account within 48 hours of your initial bet being settled. Click below to go straight to betfred. (Terms and conditions apply)
William Hill accumulator.
There is a good reason other than the fact of rating this as one of the best betting apps, why I am placing this with William Hill and why this makes up part of my weekend bets. The reason is that five-folds or greater are covered by acca insurance (as long as odds are greater than 1/5 on each selection) so if one team lets me down I get my money back as a free bet. As an existing customer I also benefit from a daily odds boost of my choice, so for the weekend I will be boosting this accumulator here.
I’m going for another six-fold this weekend from the Championship. After an 80/1 win here two weeks ago I’m feeling daring and fancying a Championship six-fold that brings back very attractive odds. I find the Championship slightly more stable and predictable than the Premier League. This week sees some tight fixtures and as such good odds can be obtained from some very likely outcomes. The trick here is to pick the right combination and hopefully, fingers crossed, we have again! Odds this week are over 200/1. Because odds are high this weekend, minimum stakes are advised if you were to follow this bet. As always please gamble responsibly.
New customers can also claim £30 in free bets when registering and betting £10. To get this new customer offer click the button below and register using promotional code C30 when prompted throughout the sign-up process. (terms and conditions apply).
The bets above are bets I have placed early in order to be able to get them out to you in a timely and worthwhile fashion. There will also be plenty of other bets I will be placing nearer to the weekend and even on the day.
Most of the bets I place nearer to the event have tended to be with Marathonbet of late. They are not known for their mind-blowing offers, but I have found them to be the most consistently best priced bookie on the bets I want to place. Well worth a sign up in my opinion and not one that is the best known. Give them a try!
