RESULTS weren’t great in Europe on Monday night unless you focused on the League of Ireland – and luckily that’s where I went for the Super Single.
I took champions and leaders Dundalk -2 Asian Handicap at home to promoted Galway and they won 3-0.
It was my only winner of the night but the most important and that’s five out of six – which is almost as good as Harpreet and Overeem. Those guys have had a bit of stick recently but does it matter how they pick them if they post more winners and losers?
Cut them and others who post consistently well some slack – alternatively if you don’t rate them pick your own.
On Tuesday the Champions League takes centre stage with two quarter-final returns – Bayern Munich v Porto and Barcelona v PSG. The Germans trail 3-1 but I believe they can overturn the deficit but it’s all over for PSG although I hope they give it a go in the Nou Camp. I’ve posted a separate preview with tips.
In the English Championship Blackburn entertain Millwall and there are five games in League One including MK Dons at home to Doncaster and Preston at Notts County. Bury tackle Southend in League Two and Aldershot entertain Wrexham in the Conference Premier.
Having checked team news for all of the English games and read match previews I’m making Walsall not to lose at Swindon my Super Single. Swindon lost 1-0 at home to Yeovil at the weekend and although mathematically can still go up automatically comments from boss Mark Cooper suggest he’s resigned to the play-offs and he’s hinted a couple of key men will be rested tonight.
If that’s the case they could lose again to a Walsall side who are unbeaten in five – with just one goal conceded – and who are one win away from safety. Walsall have Tom Bradshaw back and we know the striker has a massive influence on their results. It’s possible Walsall can win this and I’m happy to risk 1pt on the away and 3pts on them not to lose.
I’m starting the Top Treble with Preston at Notts County. Preston’s automatic promotion chances have been hit by three successive draws but should win at a Notts County who have fallen into the bottom four defeat at Crawley followed five draws.
MK Dons are vying with Preston for second spot behind Bristol City and have won five of their last six by at least two goals including a 6-1 romp against Orient last weekend. Doncaster will give them a tougher test and have won nine away but their play-off hopes are finished now so MK Dons should beat them in what could be an open game.
MK Dons are just 1-2 so I’m going for the bigger price on over 2.5 match goals – it was 3-0 in the last playing of this fixture.
Complete the treble with Bury not to lose at home to Southend in a big League Two encounter at Giggs Lane. Bury will climb to third by winning this game in hand over Wycombe so promotion is in their own hands. The home side are admitting fans free in a bid to pack out the ground but Southend, just one point behind them, haven’t conceded in six games and won five of those so will make it tough.
Bury are a biggest 11-8 with bet365 but for the treble and I’m taking them not to lose (double chance).
I looked at Blackburn v Millwall in the Championship and while the home side are big favourites there’s no doubt the Lions are battling to avoid the drop with just one defeat in six. Blackburn’s firepower could trouble them but Millwall will have hope especially of Rotherham are deducted any points.
