Port Value

Another Saturday is here, and a quiet league schedule due to all the 'big' teams being involved in FA Cup action. Teams such as Accrington Stanley, Crystal Palace, and goodness, even Brighton, are still in, all boosting their bank accounts with much needed additional revenue from cup ties.

Meanwhile, less successful teams (I'm not mentioning any names) are labouring away in the league trying to trim their £716m debts with a home game against Hull City, or possibly out playing golf while neighbours Everton play Birmingham City.

The best value bet this weekend is Port Vale at 2.1 versus Macclesfield, followed by Aberdeen at 2.0 v Kilmarnock.

Other selections are Carlisle (1.62), Norwich City (1.51), Crewe Alexandra (1.57), Rotherham (1.62), Oxford United (1.55), Stirling Albion (1.7) and Livingston (1.51).

Manchester United (to win by 4) are being backed via the Any Unquoted at 3.1, and Rangers are value at 1.43 to beat Hearts.

Given your comments on a previous post, what's the point in putting up selections without any form of explanation?

If you read my blog, you will know that these are all selections based on Elo ratings. What other explanation do you want?

You are not telling anybody what the actual ratings are. It's a bit like posting a trading screen shot without telling people how you did it? Can't see the point.

I'm not sure the blog is the place to list the Elo ratings for 200+ teams, but if you send me your e-mail address I will happily send them to you but be aware that the nature of Elo ratings is that they change after each game.
