I ADMITTED to taking few chances with Wednesday’s Top Treble (fourfold) and Super Single – but while both came out it wasn’t without a sweat.
Man United -1 paid 20-23 but for long spells Burnley were the better side at Old Trafford while it took a late Chelsea goal to bring up the 2-1 fourfold which also had Barcelona, Celtic and Man United.
After what happened with Arsenal on Tuesday I said in advance I’d cover Man Utd -1 if they went two goals ahead and I did so. In the comments section I advised Burnley to score the fifth goal at 14-1 with bet365 – and I decided on a 0.2pts partial cover so I’ve deducted that amount off my winnings.
There isn’t much to look at on Thursday with Metz v Brest in the French Cup and Anderlecht v Gent in the Belgian Cup as well as knockout matches in the likes of Greece, Turkey and Poland.
I’d imagine Anderlecht will go full strength as they try to clinch a final meeting with Bruges. They don’t need to win the game of course as they lead 2-0 from the first leg away. Gent will have to go for goals so it could be an open game with both scoring and that pays 10-11 at Coral – much the same price as a home success.
Metz sit bottom of Ligue won and haven’t won since the start of November apart from two cup games against third-tier opposition. Brest lie second in Ligue 2 so will go there full of confidence but it’s worth noting Metz have lost just three league games at home out of 11.
Both sides have key players missing with Florent Malouda out for Metz so ex-West Ham striker Modibo Maiga, who has been a flop so far, will get another chance to shine up front after returning from the African Nations.
Brest will miss midfield star Bruno Gourgi but are boosted by the signings of Gaetan Courtet and Youssef Adnane and both should start. It’s not an easy tie to call but I can see Brest at least avoiding defeat against a side struggling for goals.
So I’m happy to put up a 1pt Daily Double on both to score at Anderlecht and Brest plus one at 21-10 with bet365.
Since Sunday I’ve been tipping Hibs to beat Rangers and with news keeper Steve Simonsen has been handed a ban for betting and Lee McCulloch a stamping suspension that keeps them out of tomorrow’s home match with Hibs I’m even more convinced the Easter Road side can record their third win of the season over the Glasgow side.
Hibs were first mentioned on the site at 7-2 with bet365 but best price now is 9-4 at McBookie and BetVictor. I’ll have a full preview of the game tomorrow – and if you live in Scotland you can have a risk-free £5 bet on any Rangers-Hibs market with McBookie.
