QPR’S brilliant comeback made it five Super Single winners in a row – and I also tipped hat-trick hero Charlie Austin to score.
I had basically written off the bet when West Brom raced 2-0 ahead but bionic man Austin hit a stunning treble to give me a 29-20 winner and continue the excellent run.
QoS beat my Top Treble and homes with a shock defeat against Cowdenbeath but I managed three out of four aways that paid about 18-1 thanks to Watford, Hamilton and Stranraer with the only odds-on shot, Bristol City, letting me down as their 10 men crashed at Crewe.
The Euro treble started well with 5-0 wins for Barcelona and PSV but Real Madrid were one goal short of covering the -2 handicap in the Club World Cup Final.
I picked out Sunday’s Super Single when looking for Euro tips on Friday. The price on Malaga looked a cracker with the on-form side 31-20 at McBookie and BetVictor to take the points.
Elche saved their La Liga skins by beating Malaga in May but have won just two out of 17 league fixtures since and are rooted to the foot on 10 points.
Malaga have been a revelation this season with eight wins in 11, including their last three, and they smashed Deportivo 4-1 in the cup in midweek.
Javi Garcia’s men could get in the mix for a Champions League spot behind the top trio of Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Barcelona and that would be some achievement.
From an initial shortlist of seven I’ve narrowed down my Top Treble to Celtic, Sampdoria and Villarreal (all early games) with Marseille, St Etienne, Wolfsburg and Fiorentina dropping out.
There’s not much to say about Celtic with Ronny Deila’s men now sweeping all before them in Scotland with a run of eight wins. Celtic travel to a Dundee United who lost meekly 2-0 at home to Aberdeen last weekend and Celtic look a solid bet at 8-15 with the likes of William Hill.
It was 6-1 when they met in Glasgow at the start of the season and Celtic have won five and drawn one of the last six clashes on Tayside.
Add a Sampdoria side who are unbeaten in seven and who impressed holding leaders Juventus to a draw last week. Samp have climbed to fifth after a poor start and remain unbeaten at home.
They are as big as 10-11 at William Hill others to beat a Udinese side who have been pretty inconsistent this season. Udinese lost at home to Verona last week after beating Inter Milan and that summed up their fortunes.
Complete the treble with Villarreal at home to Deportivo. Villarreal have won their last four matches to nil and defeated Deportivo in the last three meetings at home without conceding. Deportivo’s only win in six was against basement boys Elche and they were well beaten by Malaga in the Cup in midweek.
