I DON’T know what was the biggest surprise – 0-0 at Leicester-Man City or Michael van Gerwen’s darts defeat.
To be fair Claudio Ranieri changed tact (without telling us) and played Jamie Vardy up front on his own in a bid to pack the midfield and nullify the visitors.
That result killed my Top Treble and while I was close with the Super Singles it wasn’t to be. Ross County won but didn’t cover the -1 handicap against a plucky Kilmarnock who couldn’t even fill their bench.
Top scorer Liam Boyce missed chances and it’s unusual for County to score and the Irishman not to be on target.
Greg Browning proved he’s human after all with his Man City nap going down.
Wednesday night is all about the Scottish Premiership, La Liga and Sunderland v Liverpool in England.
I’ve posted a separate Scottish preview and my main concern is the weather which is wet and windy. In Wednesday’s Daily Record my Super Single is Inverness at Hamilton and my treble both to score at Dundee v Celtic and Motherwell v St Johnstone and a win for Hearts at home to Dundee United.
The Dundee match is now off and if the weather worsens other matches could be in doubt.
With Storm Frank doing its damage the game on Hamilton’s plastic pitch could be a lottery. For that reason I’m putting up Inverness draw no bet at 6-5 with William Hill.
Scott Allot has posted a La Liga preview and tips and what caught my eye looking at stats was Barcelona and Real Madrid to score 3+ at evens with Paddy Power.
However, I’m ignoring the late Scottish games for now and going for a both to score La Liga treble. Barca’s last three at home to Betis have finished 3-1, 4-2, 4-2 while Real have beaten Sociedad 4-1, 5-1, 4-3, 5-1 and 4-1 in the last five meetings at the Bernabeu.
Add Getafe v Deportivo which has been 2-1, 3-1 and 4-1 in the previous three playings, Getafe’s last four matches have saw both scoring as have four of on-form Depor’s last five.
With Inverness scrambling victory in injury time I’ve added Hearts to score 2+ as a second Super Single. Another bet I’d consider is Partick to score at Aberdeen at 5-6 with boylesports.
