SO March is over and it was a real rollercoaster of a month. In the end I broke even on the Super Single and made a small profit on the Goals Single.
Both were double-digits down on a couple of occasions but I managed to claw it back by taking some risks but never over-staking.
The Goals Single yesterday was Elgin to score 2+ at 11-8 and I doubled my March profit to 3.73pts while the Super Single was Belgium -1 and it looks like Vincent Kompany’s red card scuppered that as they held on to a 1-0 win.
It was a night of close calls with Falkirk one goal short of bringing up a Top Treble that included under 2.5 goals at Bradford and England not to lose.
The two March figures for the singles are not spectacular but avoiding any loss is important. Also it must be remembered that in each case on a given day I need a 100 per cent record on both singles. I often have a shortlist with several winners on it but picking that ONE selection is often down to luck.
It’s a quiet Wednesday with Coventry facing Orient in League One and they look a decent bet to win at 15-8 with William Hill. Tony Mowbray’s improved the Sky Blues and last weekend’s win at on-form Peterborough was impressive and their only defeat in five was at home to away specialists Doncaster.
However, he’s still managed just one win at the Ricoh and since October the club have clocked up just one victory in front of their own fans and that’s a slight concern.
Orient have won two, lost two and draw one of their last five so remain inconsistent which was why they’re in the drop zone but just one point from safety.
Marcus Tudgay is a major doubt with a hamstring problem while Reda Johnson is also out with a muscle tear but is edging towards a return and Mowbray wants him fully fit before he will be considered.
Striker Simeon Jackson is set to miss out after coming on as a second-half substitute in Canada’s 3-0 win over Puerto Rico on Tuesday.
Crucially the Londoners will be without Jobi McAnuff and Ryan Hedges who are on international duty and their absence could swing it Coventry’s way.
Carpi face Bologna in Serie B and there are loads of lower-league Italian clubs plus cup matches in countries such as Hungary, Poland and Finland so if anyone watches these teams let’s hear the thoughts on those games.
The game at Coventry and Carpi are the only ones I’ve looked at closely and while I believe Coventry will win I’m pretty sure they won’t lose so the Super Single is Coventry draw no bet at 21-20 with William Hill.
It’s first v second in Serie B with Carpi leading their visitors by nine points. A draw would suit both sides with the top two being promoted but stats suggest it will go under 2.5 goals. I was tempted to go with that as the goals single but it pays a best 11-20 at Betway.
