I DON’T know what to make of Saturday’s card. At first glance I liked it but the more I studied games the more I was put off.
Sometimes I’m guilty of overthinking things and as an experiment one week I’d love to put tips from gut feeling and just 30 minutes or studying. I wonder how they’d fare.
Friday’s Super Single was a double on Dortmund and Standard Liege at 11-10 and came in after a big sweat so that’s a decent start to the weekend. I was always pleased not to back against Rangers because it would have been easy to be attracted by a massive price on Raith but as I said there are signs of improvement in the Ibrox side’s displays.
I put up a Super Single shortlist earlier and from that I’ve decided to go with Ipswich at home to Reading. Ipswich are superb at home and what convinced me was Wigan’s 3-0 defeat at home to Charlton – days after they won at Reading.
Reading though have been better away from home but Ipswich, with Darly Murphy dazzling, can pick up the points they need to stay in the promotion chase. In the Daily Record I went for Bournemouth and hope both are winners.
For the Top Treble I’m focusing on three sides pushing for titles – Derby at home to Sheffield Wednesday, Aberdeen at home to St Mirren and Brechin at Stirling.
Derby and Aberdeen are on the homes alongside Sheffield Utd against Coventry, Swindon against Crawley and Inverness against Kilmarnock.
So here are all my top tips – the shop tips are for lower stakes. And please remember to use level stakes and don’t try to do all the bets.
