IT was a case of close but no cigar as my three Sunday Super Singles all lost to end a good recent run.
I’m still in profit for the month but was disappointed at two stats-based bets going down while Neymar netted in just five minutes but that wasn’t good enough for first scorer.
The stats bets were England to win to nil and as I said yesterday it was a toss-up between that and England to win. Switzerland let me down in the other by somehow conceding to Lithuania.
And the Top Treble was downed by Colombia’s shock defeat to Venezuela in the Copa America. I didn’t have a great day but luckily Johnb and raaljaca were hitting winners elsewhere – as well as the corner boys – so it wasn’t all doom and gloom.
Monday’s Copa America action sees Ecuador face Bolivia followed by Chile v Mexico and in the women’s World Cup it’s Ivory Coast v Norway and Thailand v Germany.
Norway and Germany are set to rack up big wins and both are 1-100 to pick up three points. Finding value on the goals markets won’t be easy as bookies are expecting routs and it might be an idea to watch how it pans out inplay.
You can have Norway women -3 and Germany -5 on a double that pays 1-1 at bet365 an that should come in.
I know there have been some shocks in South America but Chile were impressive in their opening win against Ecuador so you can add them to beat second-string Mexico for a Top treble that pays just under 2-1 at bet365.
I’m putting 5pts on that and 5pts on Chile -1 – I know there have been shocks in Copa America but hosts Chile have handled the heat so far and I don’t see them letting me down.
It’s the Daily Record’s golf day on Monday so I won’t be around – so good luck to everyone with all their bets and as usual keep an eye out for the likes of raaljaca’s, Simon and Gillsrob’s corners and of course Johnb’s red-hot racing tips.

Meanwhile, Raaljaca’s goals thread started recently and he’s asking for donations to two cancer charities. In June we’re supporting another cause in the shape of Projects Abroad who send volunteers to work in poor countries all over the world.
