JUNE started with more of a whimper than a bang but there weren’t too many games to look at.
I tipped Karlsruhe to beat Hamburg in the Bundesliga play-off and covered the bet when they took the lead late on – and I hope anyone who backed them did too.
As far as stats go I’ll take the hit because I was working on the paper and wasn’t able to advise the cover at the time.
Regulars on the site know all about covering now and I’m sure anyone who followed the Super Single and who was monitoring the game would have broke even or maybe profited.
Both teams scored in the Brann-Follo game but Djurgarden failed to hit the target at leaders Gothenburg to beat the Daily Double as they drew 0-0.
Tuesday is another quiet night with a couple of Serie A promotion play-offs between Bologna and Avelino and Vincenza and Pescara as well as 1860 Munich v Holstein for promotion to Bundesliga 2 – they drew 0-0 in the first leg and another tight contest is expected.
Bologna lead 1-0 from the away leg and are hot favourites to make the final. They finished fourth in Serie B and are clearly the better team. However, do they stick or twist? If the defend their lead which is likely under 2.5 goals is probably the best bet.
Pescara were my Super Single at home to Vicenza but their 1-0 win courtesy of a late penalty was all that settled a dull affair. Under new boss Massimo Oddo Pescara have kicked on and won three in a row and I don’t see them being beaten here.
In fact I’ve won two Super Singles on Pescara games in recent weeks and I’m going for a hat-trick. Pescara looked set to miss the play-offs altogether until Oddo came in for the final game and I reckon he’ll lead his side to the result they need to reach the final.
I’m going for Pescara not to lose at 4-5 with bet365 and it’s worth pointing out if they are beaten by one goal Vicenza will qualify as they finished higher up in Serie B.
That’s the only tip I’m putting up today but keep an eye on the comments for plenty of others. I’ve seen both to score in the Sirius game backed and over 3.5 goals in the Icelandic Cup matches at Throttur and Reykjavic among others.
Hosts and favourites France are in Toulon Tournament action against Costa Rica but are no bigger than 1-3 with Skybet to win. Slighty better is 2-5 with Skybet to score 2+ as they go for a third win on the spin against a nation already eliminated.
