Travelling Over.... Temporarily

Well, my travels have come to a temporary conclusion and I can get back to the business of placing a "bookie beating bet".

To be honest, the bets on offer this weekend aren't particularly appealing and history would suggest that life gets tough for the BookieBeater during March & April. Results can be a little bizarre at this time of year as poor teams fight for league survival and mediocre teams don't bother trying any more.

Today, however, I've gone with Panionios to beat Ionikos. I've had reasonable success in Greece this year and I hope this will continue. I may even back Panathanaikos later this evening if all goes well.

As an aside, I see the bookmakers are backing AC Milan, Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United to reach the quarter finals of the Champions League. If that were to happen, it would be terrific for English football, but I certainly wouldn't want to back against the likes of Bayern Munich, PSV Eindhoven, Valencia and Roma. There are 8 teams in that competition that could potentially win the trophy.
