IT’S good to be back although Scott Allot and Greg Browning have done such a good job maybe I should have stayed in Berlin another few days and tried to catch a Bundesliga game.
I know Scott and Greg as well as Desmond posted winners over the weekend and last night Scott and Greg nailed it with more winners.
That was great to see and my thanks to Scott for looking after things in my absence. Both have put up tips for today and I’ve created a new post for Scott’s now I’ve picked out my own.
I’ve returned relieved to see the Super Single back in profit after the Friday and Saturday tips I put up won 10 points. Now I need to tackle the accumulators which were a Peterborough goal away from also being back in black.
Both Scott and Greg have backed Celtic to win well and I can’t disagree with that. I’ll also be on Leigh Griffiths to score first and score at any time although the latter pays no bigger than 1-2.
For a Super Single I’ve decided to go with double – over 2.5 goals at Celtic and the Forfar v Linlithgow Scottish Cup replay. I can see Celtic winning 3-0 or 4-0 against a side on a rotten run while there should be plenty of goals at Forfar after the original tie finished 3-3.
The card is dominated by cup ties and team news is so important with many sides likely to rotate squads. In original ties I tipped both Eastleigh and Wycombe not to lose against Bolton and Aston Villa respectively.
Both forced replays but could have missed their chance of a creating a shock. Championship Bolton battled a terrible pitch to leave non-league Eastleigh with their pride intact and Neil Lennon’s men should make it at the second attempt with a price of 4-5 pretty attractive.
I’d back Villa, who have picked up four points from two Premier League games, if they put out a strong team so leave that until nearer kick-off.
West Brom face a tricky one at Bristol City who beat Middlesbrough at the weekend after sacking Steve Cotterill. It was 2-2 at the Hawthorns and I expect both sides to score again.
Complete the treble with Napoli at home to Inter in their Coppa Italia quarter-final. Napoli are expected to be at full strength as they bid for a sixth win in a row. They beat Inter in November and the team they’ve replaced at the top of the table have gone off the boil with just one win in four.
