POST-CHELTENHAM I was struggling to put up Friday tips as I caught up with my weekend work so apologies for that.
Friday’s never going to be a great day for me because of my Daily Record deadline and it’s a shame really because the card’s usually pretty good. Everything I looked at went to form and at least the 11-10 Daily Double I put up came in.
That was Valencia and over 2.5 goals at Vitesse-AZ. I also suggested Aberdeen and Bayer Leverkusen and while not tipping it I pointed out Motherwell’s Scott McDonald was too big at 18-1 to score first at Pittodrie.
It wasn’t a tip but I hope some saw it and got on – I didn’t because I’d backed the Dons but you can imagine how I felt when Skippy scored.
So we move on to Saturday and my Super Single is Ross County at Hamilton. I can’t ignore form that sees a side with four wins in a row at 11-5 against one without a victory in eight. In fact Accies have netted just three goals in that spell since Alex Neil left for Norwich.
My Top Treble focuses on two teams who should win well – Bournemouth at home to Blackpool and Hearts at home to Dumbarton – as well as Watford against a Reading side who face Bradford in a FA Cup quarter-final replay on Monday and will surely have one eye on that game.
This weekend I’m hoping the main picks do better than last Saturday when the shops tips dominated – including a 29-1 aways four-timer
