WHEN 13 of the 15 teams on your shortlist win you know it’s going to be good night – and that’s how it transpired.
I ended up with a 12-1 fivefold and 13-10 Super Single as well as wins on the members bet and app daily double.
Greg’s nap won thanks to a last-gasp penalty scored by Ross County against Dundee.
The shortlist I put up had Leicester, Man United, Aston Villa, Brighton, Sheffield Wednesday, Wolves, Rochdale, Tranmere, York, Aberdeen, Athletic Bilbao, Atletico Madrid, Cologne, Roma and Monaco – and only Man Utd and York failed to win.
The Super Single was a Leicester/Sheff Wed double and for the moneyback acca I added Brighton, Cologne and Atletico Madrid. One point was lost for covering.
It could have been even better but Bayern failing to score at Hoffenheim beat the Top Treble and Anthony Modest not scoring for Cologne downed the 10-1 anytime scorer treble that also featured Jamie Vardy and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
It’s another busy night and I’ve posted a separate Scottish preview and again I’m putting up a moneyback fivefold.
Today’s shortlist included Spurs, Huddersfield, Newcastle, Sheffield Utd, Rangers, Celtic, Lyon, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Borussia M’gladbach, Ajax and Feyneoord. Again I wouldn’t put all 11 on one line but I’d expect nine or 10 to win.
From those my fivefold to be backed with a bookie that offers stake returned from one wrong is Newcastle, Lyon, Real Madrid, Ajax – plus a short Feyenoord just to make up the five.
My Top Treble starts with Real who are at Leganes and a best price of 8-15 is decent for a side on a run of six wins in a row. Leganes have drawn their last three and haven’t been conceding many but Real should be too strong.
Add Newcastle who should be playing with a bit more freedom as they close in on promotion. Rafael Benitez’s men have sometimes been a letdown at short prices but it’s asking a lot of Burton to follow their weekend win at Huddersfield with another result.
Complete the treble with Spurs at Swansea. The Swans weren’t great against Middlesbrough on Saturday but Fernando Llorente could return. Chelsea’s defeat at Crystal Palace has given Spurs a glimmer of hope in the title race and after five wins in a row they shouldn’t slip up.
Talking of Chelsea I reckon they’ll bounce back to winning ways against Man City. The Blues have been the better side all season and the loss to Palace might just be the reminder they needed the race isn’t over.
They won 3-1 at the Etihad earlier in the season and against Palace created plenty of chances. City played well at Arsenal but could only draw 2-2 and while I’m tempted by a home win at 7-5 I’m going with Chelsea to score 2+ at 17-10 with William Hill.
As far as the other Premier League games go I can see goals at Arsenal v West Ham but wouldn’t back the Gunners at 1-2. Same goes for Liverpool, without key man Sadio Mane, against Bournemouth.
Hull should edge out Middlesbrough but this could be a relegation war of attrition while Crystal Palace, four league wins in a row now, will be backed at 4-1 with McBookie at a Southampton side badly missing Manolo Gabbiadini and Virgil van Dijk.
