ON a quiet night I was happy to land a Super Single winner at 6-4 – although it was a double of over 2.5 goals at Cardiff and Prestatyn.
I also hope I put people off backing MK Dons who were clearly not interested in their FA Cup clash against Chesterfield and while I didn’t back it my suggestion was Chesterfield draw no bet at 12-5.
I’m pleased to bank some profit on Friday for what I expect to be a tough day of Saturday betting. FA Cup ties, weakened teams and the transfer window opening means checking team news is vital.
I’ve in general ignored the FA Cup on my top tips but if I could I’d sit at a computer in the afternoon watching the line-ups drop then look at who I wanted to back. Hopefully some contributors will get involved in that but I plan to be at a match weather permitting.
In Scotland it’s business as usual for sides in the lower leagues but there have been quite a few changes of personnel with clubs such as Cowdenbeath and Dumbarton losing key loan signings. There is a separate Championship preview on the site featuring tips on the lunchtime derby between Hearts and Hibs.
Here are today’s tips – low stakes for shop tips. I’ll be on my main ones as usual and I don’t expect anyone to do all bets – take your pick and back the ones you like.
