IT was a wonderful Wednesday with my 5pt Super Single winning at evens and a last-gasp goal from Partizan Belgrade landing an 8-1 Top Treble.
I broke even with the goals treble after covering over 1.5 Hibs goals just after they opened the scoring.
Covering bets isn’t for anyone but if you’re serious about it you must at least consider it as an option or look at cash-out values. I also advised cover on the Super Single – 0.5pts on Stranraer not to lose at Hibs at 10-1 so the stats have been adjusted to take that into account.
The Super Single is back in profit for the month and that’s always good to see and the Top Treble is showing a decent return of more than 15pts.
Last week I promised not to post any Europa League tips and while I’ll keep my word regarding WDW markets I’m putting up a goals single and double.
The Super Single is Odd Grenland to score Borussia Dortmund. The Norwegians are in cracking form and gave the Germans a huge fright when they led the home leg 3-0 last week. Dortmund hit back to win 4-3 and I’m hoping for more goals tonight.
Dortmund won their Bundesliga opener 4-0 at Inglostadt at the weekend and will be fully focused on Sunday’s home match with Hertha Berlin as they want to get off to a flier. I expect them to beat Odd but I’m tempted by odds of 6-4 on the visitors just to score.
For the double try over 2.5 goals at AZ v Astra and Bilbao v Zilina. AZ trail 3-2 and while they’ll be confident of overturning it the Romanians are dangerous.
They scored two at West Ham and beat Inverness 1-0 away and have netted 16 goals in their last five in all competitions. AZ drew 0-0 with Willem at the weekend but four out of five before that went over 2.5 goals.
Bilbao also trail 3-2 after defeat in Slovakia but that was the only match in four they didn’t face Barcelona. Athletic with home advantage should win the tie if they put out a strong side but Zilina, who have netted 14 in their last three games, will fancy their chances of nicking one.
I’m posting up an early Scottish tip and it’s Aberdeen to beat Partick Thistle at Firhill on Saturday. Thistle’s lack of a cutting edge against Falkirk as they crashed 1-0 in the League Cup has convinced me they are there for the taking. Thistle have only scored in one game this season and that was at home to struggling Kilmarnock.
Aberdeen had a midweek rest as they don’t enter until the third round so should be refreshed as they try to extend their 100 per cent league record.
The price has already been cut and could be shortened again but for now Paddy Power are a best 5-6 and I’m advising 6pts from my Thursday allocation on the Dons who have won on three of their last four visits to Firhill.
