    In it to win it? 20/1 Rams on offer

    Post by Rowditch Ram on Tue 16 Jan 2018, 6:13 pm

    Just took a peek at the Betfred championship odds and Wolves are 1/22 .... in other words a foregone conclusion for the league.

    The Rams, on the other hand, are 20/1 to win it. Surely that is worth a small wager in the current run of form?

    There are 14 games to go before we visit Wolverhampton & if seven or more points are gained on them, in that period - things might be very interesting come the end of the season, especially if they progress in the FA Cup leading to a fixture pile up.

    Is this worth a punt??  Fingers crossed

    Absolutely not. They are comfortably ahead and dominating every game they play.

    We are in a great position but let's not for a minute think that our position is safe. Teams with squads that eclipse ours are on our shirttails.

    Consider that Derby are still odds against finishing in the top 2 at 5/4.

    Besides, there are companies offering better than 20/1 for Derby to win this league. You can still get 22/1.

    we wont win the league and I would be surprised if we maintain our current run of luck (I meant form) for the rest of the season - Villa have found some form and have deeper pockets I think we will make the play-offs now and then it is just the lottery

    We are making it hard for the rest because we are keeping so many clean sheets and banging them in ourselves. We have had 3 very bad days at the office, Sheff U, Brizzle and Reading. Apart from those we have been solid at the back. We will have games where we ship a couple. We will have games where we don't score. The great thing in our favour is that we won't see both in one and the same game very often.

    Top 2 isn't nailed on but I believe top 6 is. Top 2 is ours to lose and difficult for the rest to gain.
