JUST call us the last-action heroes. Myself and Greg Browning put up tips yesterday and we both needed late goals.
Besiktas hit a 94th-minute winner at Omansilspor to bring up a 20-21 Super Single that returned me to profit.
Greg needed late goals at both of his Scottish Development League matches between Aberdeen v Motherwell and Kilmarnock v Hearts to land his 13-10 nap.
That was good news for him but he won’t pleased to see I’m now a 2-9 shot from going 1-0 up in our £10 to £100 Challenge. Tuesday could be the day.
Also on the members’ forum the Betting Club tip won and on Bet of the Day I posted a losing double but winning single – Levadiakos to score at 11-10.
So despite a quiet day it was good one and it’s a similar story on Tuesday with not much on,
There is a William Hill Scottish Cup replay between Linlithgow Rose and Wick Academy and I’m surprised to see the Highland League visitors as favourites.
East junior side Rose were the better side in last week’s game and were pegged back by an injury-time equaliser. They are strong at home and Wick won’t be helped by a near six-hour road trip and the absence of a couple of players.
In reality the teams are closely matched so Paddy Power‘s 7-4 on Rose to win is too big. In that case I’m chancing 2pts on Rose not to lose in 90 minutes at 21-20 with McBookie. I also expect both teams to score but so do bookies and that pays 4-11 at Betfred and Paddy Power.
Rose prices have now collapsed. When I first looked on Monday they were as big as 2-1 but now the best price is 21-20 at McBookie so that makes Rose or draw now as short as 2-5 with the likes of bet365.
I haven’t saw them on any coupons but there are seven FA Cup Trophy matches tonight including short-priced Conference side Macclesfield at home to Northern Premier Ashton and well-fancied Altrincham at Leamington.
If anyone has thoughts on any of these ties put them up but I don’t know enough about the teams involved to pick anything out without spending a couple of hours of research – and today I don’t have that time.
I did notice Skelmersdale and Fylde drew the initial tie 4-4 and 13 of Skelmersdale’s previous 15 have seen both scoring while eight of Fylde’s last 10 have gone over 2.5 goals.
So with plenty of scope to risk a point or two on the acces I’m putting up btts at Skelmersdale and Macclesfield to win as well as well-tipped Altrincham and Southport not to lose.
Elsewhere Mouscron v Charleroi is a closely-matched Belgian league game and there’s not much else to look at.
