LEICESTER did the business to keep the Super Single run going but for most of the accumulators it was about what could have been.
I tipped Leicester to win but for the single took them to score 2+ goals and it was up inside 22 minutes. That’s six winners in a row for my main bet. For my £10 to £100 challenge against Greg Browning I took Leicester not to lose and I’ve stolen a march on him after he put up a loser.
My only other winner came with my Euro treble on Wolfsburg v Dortmund both to score, Real Madrid to score 3+ and Lyon v Angers under 2.5 goals. That paid 3-1 thanks to a late Wolfsburg penalty.
Chelsea killed the Top Treble as they were shocked at home to Bournemouth and it was four out of five on the homes as Southampton’s draw beat me. Greg had one of those days he’ll get once a year and neither Desmond or Scott Allott had any joy either.
So we move on to today and it’s all about Liverpool at Newcastle after I put up two early Super Singles last Wednesday. Liverpool -1 has dropped from a best 9-5 to 13-8 at Skybet and Liverpool to score 3+has fallen slightly to 2-1.
I’ve posted a separate preview of the Premier League game and also fancy Derby at Sheffield Wednesday in the Championship. The Owls have injury problems and Derby are beginning to motor and while I get the impression he’s not totally convinced Rams fan Nathan Ufton has believes his side will edge it. Derby are a best 29-20 at Coral and for me Derby draw no bet at 8-13 or Derby not to lose at 4-11 are the best bets.
Take the double chance to start the Top Teble and in Spain take Athletic Bilbao at home to Malaga. Bilbao are in decent form with eight wins in their last 10 and face a Malaga side who haven’t scored in their last six on the road in La Liga. Bilbao are 1-2 with most firms and I’m adding Aritz Aduriz to score as a third Super Single – he’s netted 20 this season and five in his last two outings.
Complete the treble with Fiorentina are at home to a Udinese side they’ve beaten seven in a row in Florence.
There are also nine FA Cup ties and instead of backing Peterborough at home to Luton I’m on goal-hungry Posh to score 2+ goals as they have done in the last eight matches.
Add over 2.5 goals at Stuttgart v Werder Bremen. Stuttgart have conceded 12 in their last three games and Werder have leaked 13. Hopefully defences won’t be on top here. On the h2h the last five meetings in Stuttgart have totalled 23 goals including a 4-1 win apiece and 6-0 home rout.
Complete the treble with over 2.5 goals at Feyenoord v Heracles. The Rotterdam men could achieve this themselves as they’ve netted nine in two games while the last five playings of this one have gone over 2.5 goals.
Other sides I like not among the top tips are Villarreal at home to Rayo and Milan at Carpi. In the FA Cup I’ve checked team news and Exeter are missing half a dozen – mostly midfielders – at home to Port Vale who are 5-4 with the likes of William Hill.
Oxford have Ryan Taylor and Chris Maguire out but skipper Jake Wright back for an interesting tie at home to Forest Green and Bradford are likely to make changes for the visit of Chesham.
Colchester have Wayne Brown in charge after the departure of Tony Humes and against Altrincham he’ll be looking to shore up a defence that’s conceded 15 in four.
Dagenham look a decent shout at 8-11 with William Hill at home to Whitehawk and I also like Carlisle at Welling in the live TV showdown.
