I DIDN’T think I’d be signing the praises of the Faroes and cursing Argentina but that’s how it turned out on a dramatic day.
I landed a 6-1 Super Single winner with Faroes draw no bet against Greece and I have knocked 0.5pts off the profit as I covered it when the Faroes led 2-0.
It looked like it was going to be a great day when Argentina led Paraguay 2-0 at half-time but we know what happened. My second Super Single of Argentina -1 went down and the Top Treble of Argentina, Uruguay and Portugal was also beaten as the underdogs came back to draw 2-2.
Bot the single and treble could have been cheaply covered and the advice was posted (not by me). I decided not to cover but that’s why we do it.
I also posted an anytime scorer double on Cristiano Ronaldo and Robert Lewandowski – pity it wasn’t a hat-trick double.
Most of my recommendations on the Ireland-Scotland game were correct but my under 2.5 goals treble was a loser and even then it could have been covered before Greece bagged a late consolation against the Faroes.
I’m hoping for another good night and there are another nine Euro 2016 qualifiers on Sunday – remember the good old days when they were all on the same evening. I’ve posted up a separate preview of the games which include Slovenia v England, Russia v Austria and Sweden v Montenegro.
Spain are a short price at Belarus as are Switzerland at Lithuania and Slovakia at home to Macedonia.
In Copa America you’ll get no bigger than 2-7 with Ladbrokes on Brazil to beat Peru and Colombia are bound to feature on my top tips at 2-5 with bet365 and Ladbrokes against Venezuela.
For the Top Treble I’m taking Switzerland at Lithuania and adding two from Copa America despite being slightly scarred by Argentina. Colombia should beat Venezuela with something to spare and it should be the same for Brazil against Peru. I’d consider both -1 but for the treble it’s straight victories.
I was tempted by England for the Super Single but I’ve decided to go with Roy Hodgson’s men to keep a clean sheet away to Slovenia. England have conceded just one goal in their five matches – and that was Jordan Henderson’s OG in the 3-1 win at home to the Slovenians.
This looks as if it could tight, similar to their 1-0 win away to Estonia, but 0-0 is also a possibility to I’m going with the clean sheet as opposed to England to win or England to win to nil.
My second Super Single is Switzerland to win to nil at a Lithuania side who simply don’t score goals – none in their last six. The Swiss are back on form after a poor start saw them lose to England and Slovenia.
