STORM Gertrude and the FA Cup are the biggest dangers to punters today.
The weather has ruled out some games with Inverness v Hearts the highest-profile match casualty in Scotland.
Other matches to fall are Raith v Queen of the South and Cowdenbeath v Forfar while there are inspections at Partick Thistle, Dumbarton, Berwick, East Fife and Stirling.
And with the FA Cup team news is vita with so many sides choosing to field weakened teams.
That wasn’t the case for Man United at Derby last night and I tipped a win for Louis van Gaal’s side and Wayne Rooney to score.
I should have stuck to what I know my best because while my Super Single in the Daily Record was United at evens for the site I took Paris FC draw no bet but they lost 1-0 at Brest. And on my Top Treble it was one out of three.
I’ve posted an English and Scottish betting preview where most of today’s selections are explained. The Super Single is on-form Birmingham at Bristol City while in the Record I’ve picked Oxford at home to Blackburn in the FA Cup.
Most of today’s risk is on the Super Single, Top Treble and both to score trebles – and my final bet is 1.7pts on West Ham at Liverpool having seen the line-ups.
It’s the usual FA Cup line-up for Liverpool with 10 changes from the team that lost to Stoke but reached the Capital One Cup Final on penalties in midweek. The Hammers are fairly strong and at 16-5 are worth a look.
Good luck with what you do but don’t attempt all of my bets and take it easy with the long shots.
