This column is very much locked into a bi-weekly cycle of profit and loss. Last week I started by boasting about the bundles of cash I'd won the week before, only to then pick just one winner - Adrian Ramos at 2.89/5 - out of five.
The good news is that this means we are pretty much guaranteed* to bounce back with a resounding profit this weekend. *Please note - "pretty much guaranteed" should in no way be taken to mean "actually guaranteed".
We start in the FA Cup with Sunday's glamour fifth round tie between Arsenal and Liverpool. As a Spurs fan it's my pleasure to remind everyone that Liverpool thrashed Arsenal 5-1 just a week ago, but with the game being played at the Emirates, the visitors are favourites by only the narrowest of margins.
That of course pumps up the prices of Liverpool's deadly SAS partnership up front and right now the man in form is Daniel Sturridge. Last week I tipped Luis Suarez to score at just over evens and though my logic was spot-on as Liverpool ripped Arsenal to shreds, the Uruguayan failed to get on the scoresheet from his position on the right of the attack.
Yet just a week later and it's Suarez who remains the favourite of the duo to score, despite Sturridge adding to his season's tally again in midweek against Fulham. Since returning from injury, Sturridge has scored eight goals in seven games, while Suarez has only scored three times in the same period. The likely odds of 2.89/5 for Sturridge to score must be snapped up.
Another player in hot goalscoring form is Adam Johnson. Several months after everyone forgot that he was a good player, Johnson has awoken from his Sunderland slumber and is scoring against all and sundry.
The winger has scored seven goals in nine games. At home, against a Southampton side that are in patchy form, he's worth a punt at juicy odds of 11.010/1 to score first.
Over to Germany now where we prepare to back a player that is rapidly becoming a column favourite. We've tipped Adrian Ramos to score for the past two weeks for Hertha Berlin and on both occasions he's obliged.
This weekend he faces a Wolfsburg team that are just two points ahead of Hertha in the Bundesliga. It promises to be a tight game but there should still be goals to be enjoyed, with Wolfsburg having only kept two clean sheets at in their last 12 games.
Ramos is the Bundesliga's top scorer with 14 goals yet should be available at around 2.77/4 to score. How can this be? Perhaps we're witnessing the birth of a player's reputation as a major star. If that's true, take advantage while he is such a bargain.
Another player that is forging his reputation is Torino's wonderfully named Ciro Immobile. Despite his name suggesting otherwise, the striker evidently has got some decent movement in his locker, as he's scored 12 goals this season.
Torino are in action on Monday night against a Verona side one place ahead of them in sixth. Again, we have a case of a tight game boosting the price of an in-form striker. Back Immobile to score last at likely odds of 8.07/1.
Finally we head to France, where there should be easy pickings for Alexandre Lacazette. The Lyon striker has broken through this season with 17 goals in 34 games, which includes five from his last five appearances.
On Sunday he goes up against rock bottom Ajaccio, with Lyon at home. That makes the likely price of 2.111/10 for Lacazette to score, look like great value.
Best Bet: Back Sturridge to score at 2.89/5
Back Johnson to score first at 11.010/1
Back Ramos to score at 2.77/4
Back Immobile to score last at 8.07/1
Back Lacazette to score at 2.111/10
