IT’S Easter Friday so that means a big card in England. The Championship, League One, League Two and National League games have been brought forward 24 hours leaving the Premier League for Saturday.
As regulars know I have little time to look at Friday games because I have to write my Saturday Daily Record articles and pick out the top tips.
Big games in the Championship include Newcastle v Leeds, Wolves v Brighton and Sheffield Wednesday v Cardiff and none those look easy calls.
On the Continent we have Angers v PSG in France and Athletic Bilbao v Las Palmas in Spain as well as the usual lower-league matches in Holland and France that are loved for goals. PSG should win and I can see both scoring in Bilbao.
I’ve chosen a both to score treble based from the English games based on stats and form and not surprisingly Greg and others have also picked out the Crewe v Notts County game.
And I have also picked Kilmarnock draw no bet at home Hearts as the Super Single and it’s good to see the Racing Post’s Scottish tipster Mark Walker plumping for Killie to win as his recommended bet on the game.
Killie are too big at 31-10 with McBookie compared to Hearts who are just under evens. Killie won 2-0 at home earlier in the season on their plastic pitch and have only lost at Rugby Park in two of the last 10 meetings.
Hearts have lost their last three away without scoring while Killie’s only defeat in five was to Celtic and even then they gave them a game.
I’m in the middle of my Record work but I’ve picked out a Top Treble – with the little help of my friends. Not for the first time I’m taking Sean Ireland’s advice on Cork and backing them to score 2+ at Bohemians who reportedly have injury problems.
Cork have a 100 per cent record after eight games and have netted at least two goals in their last six while Bohemians have conceded 11 at home in four outings.
Add PSG to win at Angers and pull level with Monaco at the top who could at some stage be distracted by Champions League ambitions. PSG are fully concentrated now on the title and have won five in a row as well as hammering Monaco in a cup final.
Angers lost just 1-0 at home to Monaco last week and don’t concede loads but with PSG around 2-5 for the straight win that’s good enough on a treble.
And complete the line with Greg’s tip which is Nimes to beat Orleans at home in French Ligue 2. I like his reasoning and trust his judgment.
And finally risking 1pt on a moneyback fivefold – so make sure you do it with acca insurance. All have been mentioned by me or others except maybe Colchester. Backing them at a big price to beat Doncaster who were promoted last Saturday then by all accounts “partied hard” before returning to training on Wednesday.
Doncaster still have a title to secure but if they’re not at their best today they’ll struggle against a side that’s won three in a row at home convincingly.
Last night no Schalke goal beat me for a btts double and fourfold so it was 1.5pts lost.
