LAST Saturday was superb – yesterday was surreal. Imagine if you’d woken up and decided to put £1 on Norwich, Motherwell and Falkirk. You’d be nearly a grand richer.
That’s the kind of day it was and any time Man United, Celtic and Rangers lose it’s good times for the bookies.
Of those three Falkirk were the only ones I suggested backing while Motherwell were as big as 22-1 at Celtic and I don’t know what price they were when they went 1-0 down.
It was a close but no cigar day – almost all the lines I posted were beaten by one team or one goal.
I covered one of my Super Singles when Newport were 2-0 up so it was a 1.1 loss on the two of them.
My biggest disappointment was the aways. After last week’s 159-1 success I was eyeing up a 66-1 win when Spurs, QPR and Swindon all led and Ayr were drawing. At the time cash out for a decent profit was available and I could have covered a 30-1 treble.
But it went pear-shaped for Ayr and QPR conceded a late equaliser at Bristol City. I also chose not to cover my both to score treble when Notts County were the only ones not to net in the first half but they also let me down.
It was a better day for Desmond who landed his 3-1 goals double and Greg’s nap again trapped at 8-11.
I’ve studied all the main games this morning and I can’t see anything I strongly fancy in the five English games and we could see a few draws.
For my Super Single I’m on Angers not to lose at St Etienne. They’re the Leicester of the French league this season having come up and performed superbly. After losing just three of their 18 matches they sit second but are of course miles behind champions PSG.
St Etienne are without a win in five with just two goals while Angers have netted just five in five but are unbeaten in that spell with just one goal conceded. It looks like an unders game but I’m taking Angers not to lose at 13-15 with 888sport.
For the Top Treble start with Atletico Madrid whose form shows no signs of dipping and they have won six in a row. Diego Simone’s side can go three points clear of Barcelona – who have been on Club World Cup duty – with a win at a Malaga outfit who sit just above the drop zone with just one win in six.
Add Athletic Bilbao at home to a Levante side they have beaten in four of their last five meetings. Bilbao’s form has been mixed but Levante are without a win in five.
Complete the treble with Serie A leaders Inter at home to a Lazio side they’ve beaten in six of their last seven at the San Siro. Also Inter have won six of their last seven matches and kept seven clean sheets in their last eight Serie A matches at home.
I’m doing teams to score tips and a btts and win contest on the forum where members can share the spoils. Didn’t get a chance to do it on Saturday.
