I ADOPTED a different tactic with the Super Single on Sunday and landed an 8pt winner.
Strangely, I received more criticism than praise for the pick but I’d rather choose an even-money treble than a loser.
The Super Single is just a tag – I’ve often put up doubles in the past and when the card gives me nothing I like at a good price I’ll put up any sort of bet I think has a winning chance. It should only be slammed if it’s a loser.
The treble was on England and Portugal Under-21s not to lose as well as Rosenborg win or draw. I was unlucky with the Top Treble as only Bodo Glimt’s failure to score at home to Viking beat it.
But my 3-1 golf match bet treble landed at the US Open thanks to Sergio Garcia, Geoff Ogilvy and Rory McIlroy – so overall it was a better day.
There’s not much happening on Monday unless you’re a Finnish football fan. I’ve has a look at some of those matches as well as Norway v England and USA v Colombia in the Women’s World Cup.
For the Top Treble and I’m on two short-priced Finnish sides who should see off lowly opposition – second-placed Rops at home to Ilves and leaders HJK at home to Jaro.
I can’t see Norway losing to England in Canada and complete the treble with them not to lose. Norway were runners-up in Euro 2013 and have been World Cups semi-finalists four times. They are a best 19-10 at Ladbrokes and 888sport to win and that looks a big against a side who didn’t impress in the group stages.
For the Super Single it’s a double (that’s two picks for those who didn’t understand yesterday’s winner) and I’m adding Norway women to score to HJK.
