MY run of bad luck ended with two good Super Singles and at one stage it was looking like four winners.
I put faith in Rangers and Celtic with 6pts on the -2 and -1 handicaps respectively to win 7.2pts – although one was given back as a cover and that was nearly a winner too.
Earlier Villarreal -1 had come in at 7-5 and feeling bullish I added Spurs -1AH at home to Leicester having seen the teams. No Vardy and no Mahrez and eight changes by the Tinkerman convinced to back the home but the Foxed didn’t lie down in a thrilling tie.
So the Super Single losses have been massively cut and will hopefully be back in profit by the end of the week. Now I’ll have to tackle the accumulators.
Greg also had a good day with his nap and NB on the Spurs game both landing and we started a new £10 to £100 challenge on the forum with winners. My two Bets of the Day also won on teams to score.
Monday’s a quiet one although the abandoned Nacional v Benfica game has been rescheduled for 12pm and yesterday I tipped Benfica to win and both teams to score.
Without spending hours of research the match that has caught my eye today is Pacos Ferreira v Vitoria Setubal in the Portuguese league. The dilemma is both to score or over 2.5 goals?
Over pays better at 6-5 with BetVictor and others but I’m going slightly safer with both to score at 21-20 with Coral. I was reading some stats from the Racing Post’s Kevin Pullein today about common scorelines and it’s 1-1 – about 12 per cent of games.
So let’s hope 1-1 has a better chance than say 3-0. Four of the last six meetings have seen both score and three have gone over including 4-1 and 5-3 wins for Pacos who have triumped in five of six against Setubal and who are 10-11 at bet365 and Ladbrokes to pick up the points.
But I’m sticking with goals as I’m often advised. Five of Vitoria’s last seven have brought up btts as have three of Pacos’ last four with the other being a 6-0 win against Union Madeira.
I’ve been putting up teams to score singles and noticed Pacos are evens to score on William Hill coupons and 1-25 online. I’ll check later if they’re giving the evens but I doubt it.
Yesterday I put up a Super Single for Tuesday – Crystal Palace at 7-5 to win at Aston Villa. It’s too big considering Villa haven’t won in 16 and were poor again as they drew at Wycombe in the FA Cup at the weekend and there will be full reasoning and an English betting preview much later.
2pts Super Singles
Pacos v Setubal btts (8pm)
