Not Going For A Burton

A thin football schedule tomorrow may not mean an abundance of choices, but does give the opportunity to look at the games in detail.

Birmingham City (2.64) host Wolverhampton Wanderers (3.1) in the game of the day. The draw is available at 3.25. My ratings have the two teams very close, with Birmingham at 1017, and the edge to Wolves at 1035. Current form favours Wolves also, but in a derby game of this importance, those edges are not big enough to justify an outright back of Wolves. I'm expecting a tight game, so Under 2.4 (1.69) and a lay of Birmingham are my picks.

Torquay United (2.32) play Burton Albion (3.5) in the Blue Square Premier. The teams are rated with Torquay on 293, 4 points ahead of Burton. Torquay are ahead on current form too, and they need the points more than Burton. Torquay to win.
