I DIDN’T put up a Super Single on Monday and have no regrets. I’d picked out four possibilities and three of them won – but I could have posted the loser.
On quiet nights no bet is often the way to go but that’s not the case on Tuesday with the return of the Champions League.
It’s PSG v Chelsea and Shakhtar Donetsk v Bayern Munich for starters and I’ve posted a separate preview.
Elsewhere there are three games in the Championship with Derby at Rotherham, Reading taking on Wigan and Cardiff facing Blackburn.
There are also games in League One, League Two and the Conference as well as a Scottish Cup replay between Berwick and Spartans and having checked team news and stats I’ve picked out my top tips.
On Monday I couldn’t find a Super Super and the problem today is picking the right one – with the likes of Chelsea draw no bet, Bayern Munich -1, Blackburn, Reading, Derby, Bristol City and Sheffield Utd all teams I like.
Of course not all of those choices will win – but four or five might come up – and in the end I’ve decided to go with Sheffield Utd at Notts County.
Nigel Clough’s men recorded a superb 3-1 win at leaders Bristol City last time out following a 4-1 success against Colchester. County notched their first win in six against second-bottom Orient at the weekend and the key stat for me is they’ve suffered eight defeats at home this season. The Blades are just under evens and while I’d like the price to be bigger for an away I expect them to win.
For the Top Treble I’m going with some of the sides I’ve mentioned. Reading could give Yakubu a start after hitting the FA Cup winner at Derby and should beat a Wigan outfit who have been in general woeful under Malky Mackay.
I like Blackburn who remember made eight changes for their FA Cup hammering of Stoke while Derby made seven changes for their defeat to Reading. I’d rather take Blackburn at 9-5 with Coral than Derby, who will be without top scorer Chris Martin, at 11-10 at a Rotherham side showing signs of improvement.
Neither makes the treble though with Bristol City in there at home to Peterborough as they bid to bounce back from that Sheffield Utd loss. City beat the Posh 3-0 away and Darren Ferguson’s side remain inconsistent although stats suggest both will score.
Complete the treble with Bayern to win at Shakhtar and I expect them to do so by at least two goals.
I’ve put up a both teams to score treble and hope to make it six out of six after five out of six on my last two attempts.
