IT was almost a perfect day but it was certainly a better day.
My Top Treble won at 23-10 thanks to Juventus -1, Napoli and Sporting and I advised cover on my 15-2 both to score treble that was let down in leg three by Empoli.
I chose to put 0.25pts on Deportivo at 8-1 when Mirandes took the lead but they didn’t hold on so it was a small loss on my SS of Mirandes draw no bet. One site user had a go at me when I later advised anyone who hadn’t covered at 8-1 to back Deportivo at 25-1.
The reasoning was the odds looked too big with about 20 minutes to go and to cover the stake was going to take 0.04pts or in my money 40p. I think it was worth the risk and if you don’t agree with any advice I give you are free to leave it alone.
Again there’s not much on the go on Thursday with a decent-looking League One clash between Wigan and Gillingham and two Spanish Cup games – Cadiz v Celta Vigo and Eibar v Las Palmas.
I’m seriously tempted by a Gills side who have climbed to second in the table after four successive wins. They look too big at 3-1 with the likes of bet365 and Ladbrokes but Wigan have to be given some respect.
Gary Caldwell’s men lie fifth due to drawing too many games (eight) and scoring too few at home. However, while they’ve netted just 15 at the DW they’ve conceded a league best five in 11 outings.
I might be kicking myself if Gillingham win but for the Super Single I’m keeping the draw on side and going with Gillingham or draw double chance at just under evens.
Both to score also pays 5-6 and should come in looking at Gillingham’s stats but it’s not so clearcut when you look at Wigan figures.
As for the Spanish games I’d back Celta Vigo at Cadiz if it’s confirmed boss Eduardo Berizzo fields his strongest team, barring Nolito who is injured.
Celta lie fifth in La Liga but are looking to get back on track after back-to-back defeats. Cadiz are only playing because Real Madrid fielded an ineligible player in their 3-1 away win and were kicked out.
The fact Cadiz netted is interesting and both to score is a possibility while Celta are evens at Betway.
Eibar are also evens at Betway and Betfred to beat La Liga rival Las Palmas. It was 2-0 to Las Palmas in this league fixture in October although Eibar have improved since then with one defeat in five.
Las Palmas drew 2-2 at Athletic Bilbao last time out and that was a surprise as away from home they’ve picked up three points in 10 matches. I’d favout Eibar but not enough to put points on it so for tonight the Super Single is the only bet.
