The Major is looking forward to the Arsenal v Barca clash tomorrow night and has been thinking on the value.
We have had a rough few days which has raided February profits. The Major is nothing but relentlessly positive though and once you have the angle you push on through regardless. Tomorrows racing is a mixed bag and nothing stood out – Plus a breather is probably required from the track…
Value is born from an unmitigating commitment to your view on the pricing regardless of the sheep that stick with the trends that would be better disregarded. It is better to be in the minority against the tide as long as it is for the right reasons.
The Arsenal Barca game is a classic example. Too much relevance is being placed on Barca’s previous dominance of Arsenal in Europe. They were poor last weekend, this is a good time to play them and Arsenal look strong.
On balance, reviewing recent form suggests two value bets for the Major:
1. 8/1 Van Persie First Goalscorer – Stan James
Van Persie is in decent nick and when he plays all of Arsenals attacking threat comes through the Dutchman – Well worth a slice.
2. 41/13 Arsenal to win – Unibet
Better than 3s on Arsenal at home is a tasty price int he Majors view. They will be fired up for this and with the potential of a Nasri return, get stuck in.
