I PLAYED it cautiously on Monday with a 1pt Super Single and with one part of it void the profit was 0.5pts.
That’s better than a loss and it was good to see all of Greg’s goals tips coming up on the young Belgian games – and in fact his advice on the St Johnstone Under-20s’ match made it a nap hand of five out of five.
We’ve brought Jordan on board on a more official capacity so watch out for his football and sports tips. He’s been as consistent as Greg in his posts and win rate and is another good addition to the site.
As well as Scott Allott and Desmond plus Johnb’s racing section and Ace Venturer’s golf tips (he had another winner this week with Brandt Snedeker) it’s a formidable bunch of free tips. And if you want even more the members’ forum is the place for general chit-chat, exclusive members’ competitions and extra tips.
After a quiet Monday it’s a busy Tuesday with eight Premier League games and nine in the lower leagues. In Scotland there is one Premiership match as Partick entertain Motherwell and two big games in the Championship with Hibs at Morton and Rangers at Raith. The weather could be a problem north of the border so keep an eye on club websites for latest news.
Hibs should be on a high at Morton after reaching the League Cup Final but fell eight points behind Rangers who edged out Falkirk on Saturday. A double on the duo tonight – Gers travel to Raith – pays 11-10 with William Hill.
My only worry would be if Hibs rested some players ahead of Sunday’s Scottish Cup derby against Hearts but the league should be boss Alan Stubbs’s priority.
Rangers won 5-0 at Stark’s Park earlier in the season and face a side who have lost form and a couple of players.
The sides have met six times since Rovers surprised the Ibrox men in the 2014 Challenge Cup Final. Gers have won them all and netted 23 goals. Back them to take this one by at least two at 4-5 with bet365 and Ladbrokes.
In the Premier League I like the look of Spurs at Norwich. The Londoners are on a great run and face a side who have conceded 14 goals in four. Spurs are 10-11 at William Hill to win and the same price to score two or more goals – and that’s Jordan’s top tip today.
There are another seven games tonight and I’ve studied them all closely. The general concensus is the Premier League has been the toughest to call this season and while I like leaders Leicester at home to Liverpool and Bournemouth at Crystal Palace I’d prefer to take them draw no bet or not to lose.
I don’t fancy backing Man United at odds on at home to Stoke either. They’ve lost on their last 12 visits to Old Trafford but it’s not the fortess it was and if Stoke were in better form I’d be tempted by them at just under 5-1.
However, they did perform well and win over 90 minutes at Liverpool in the League Cup semi-final and showed their intent by splashing out £18million last night to sign Porton midfielder Giannelli Imbula. This is Mark Hughes’s 100th game in charge of City and the ex-Man United striker would love to celebrate the landmark with a win.
Man City should win at Sunderland but are short at 1-2 so for me best bet on the WDW market is West Ham, one defeat in 12, who 37-40 with McBookie to beat Aston Villa. Remi Garde must have been shocked at being able to add no new signings to his squad in January and you get the impression the club have given up the ghost this season and are already planning for life in the Championship.
In the Championship I like the look of Burnley at Sheffield Wednesday while Wolves should beat Bolton at home but are a little short when you consider Neil Lennon’s men have shown some improvement in recent weeks.
Southend look a decent bet at Shrewsbury in League One while Portsmouth can win at Morecambe in League Two.
I’m remaining cautious with the Super Single and backing West Ham draw no bet and Spurs not to lose as a double. That pays just over evens but will be 1-4 if West Ham draw and Spurs win or draw.
There’s a lot I like tonight – and that’s without taking into account European matches – but I’m not going mad with the bets and hopefully I’ve picked the right ones for the top tips.
