JUVENTUS to score in both halves landed me a third comfortable Super Single in a row but after Wednesday’s full house it was difficult not to be disappointed by Athletic Bilbao letting down two trebles.
The Juve bet paid a best 23-20 at 10bet but Bilbao failed to cover the handicap and also beat the goals treble as they struggled past Alcoyano 1-0 in the Spanish Cup.
The Super Single though is always my main bet so it’s been three profitable nights in a row.
Regulars will be aware my focus is now on my Saturday Daily Record column so there’s much from me on a Friday – but plenty of others will post good tips.
In the English Championship Millwall entertain Bolton in what could be a tight contest. The Lions ended a lean spell by beating Brighton while Neil Lennon’s visitors are unbeaten in six with three draws and three wins.
Milwall will be boosted by that victory – albeit against struggling Seagulls – but Bolton look big at 13-5 with BetVictor and Bolton draw no bet is a possible Super Single at 8-5 with the same firms.
Likewise Burton look big at 3-1 away to Southend in League Two so again Burton draw no bet at 7-4 is my thinking. Tranmere take on Cambridge in the other game and both sides are in decent form.
In the Bundesliga Bayern Munich are a short price to win at Mainz and Celta Vigo should beat Almeria in La Liga. Bayern haven’t conceded in their last six away games so to win to nil is tempting at 37-40 with McBookie and BetVictor.
Lens face Nice in French Ligue 1 with the visitors being tipped and there have been loads of suggestions for Ligue 2 teams such as leaders Dijon at second-bottom Chateauroux at over evens – the big price is explained by Dijon’s poor away form.
Porto take on Setubal in the Portuguese league and in the end that’s the game I’ve picked for my Super Single. The champions are of course extremely short to win and markets such as Jackson Martinez to score, Porto to score in both halves and Porto to score three or more are also odds on.
That suggests to me Porto are expected to win by several goals and looking at the stats they’ve beaten Setubal by more than one goals in 11 of the last 13 meetings. It was 3-0 in Oporto last season and 3-1 away so I’m taking a chance on Porto covering the minus two handicap at 1-1 with bet365.
I’m too busy with Saturday’s Daily Record column so for the moment that’s my only bet. I’m doing a 1pt Trixie on Bolton draw no bet, Burton draw no bet and Dijon but I’m not confident to put it up as a top tip.
