IT was almost a full house on Sunday with 10-man Valencia beating the Top Treble as they drew at home to Deportivo.
As the final part of a treble they could have been covered but having already unnecessarily covered two bets I didn’t do the one I needed to.
First up was a 3-1 both teams to score treble winner thanks to PSV v Feyenoord, Stabaek v Odd and Sturm Graz v Red Bull Salzburg and that was followed by Bodo-Glimt at 11-10 bringing up the Super Single and that ensures a profit for August.
The advised accas are now 27pts in profit which is the best tally since I started keeping tabs of any bets other than the Super Single. It’s not Johnbesque but it’s pretty decent and equates to almost £10 a day profit every day in August on accumulators if like me 1pt is a tenner.
Total profit for the month is about £360 and I’d take that every month. I’m not aiming at the big hitters market but in the main people who like to put 10s and 20s on a mixture of odds from some evens to a bit higher risk.
Let’s hope for more of the same in September and sometime during the month we will announce changes to the site and additional tipsters (including the return of Bounty Hunter) and many exciting features as well as big cash giveaways.
None of the current features will be dropped though as admin are aware people like what they see. More than one million page views were recorded in the last 10 days – that’s more than in the whole of 2011 – and they’d like to thank users for their continued support.
It’s a fairly quiet week leading up to the Euro 2016 qualifiers with Coventry v Southend the only English league on Monday.
There are however loads of non-league matches including National League top flight, North and South to look at on Bank Holiday. I don’t have much time to look below the top division but have spotted one opportunity.
In Ireland second-placed Cork tackle St Patrick’s and there some other games to look throughout the continent.
I posted Coventry as a Super Single yesterday because I thought they were big at 13-10 with BetVictor at home to a Southend side in the drop zone and without a win.
Coventry have started well with three wins in four but Tony Mowbray will be without midfielder James Maddison who was injured last week and will be out until the new year.
There were comments earlier about top scorer Adam Armstrong, on loan from Newcastle and highly rated, being out but from what I’ve read he will play before joining up with the England Under-19 squad and then miss Coventry’s weekend clash against Burton.
I don’t claim to be an expert on English non-league football but after doing some research I’ve come up with a treble I hope has a good chance of landing.
Start with National leaders Forest Green who have started the season in sensational form with six wins out of six and only one goal conceded. They are 8-13 at Ladbrokes at home to promoted Bromley who haven’t won since the opening day.
Add both to score at Gateshead v Lincoln. Both have scored in all four meetings in the north including two 3-3s and both sides have seen this market come up in their last five matches.
Complete the treble with National South leaders Bath who visit basement boys Weston-Super-Mare. Like FGR it’s six wins out of six for Bath while Weston have no points from their five matches and have conceded 17. I can’t see any team news so accept this could go wrong but on the face of it Bath should fill their boots.
I don’t know if there will be any more Monday tips but win or lose both bets it’s been a decent month considering there isn’t much form to go on. I much prefer September and October when form patterns start to emerge.
