JORDAN proved on Monday a 4-5 winner is better than a 6-4 loser.
His 2+ double on Venlo and Dundalk came up while I chose the bigger price and saw the Dutch fall one goal short of bringing up my VVV -1 and Dundalk to score 2+ double. Venlo netted four but somehow conceded three against the strugglers.
My Top Treble was a bit of a sickener. Leicester won and there were over 2.5 goals at Benfica – with Tondela scoring as I predicted. But the treble was down atthe first hurdle when both teams failed to score for the first time in nine meetings between Austria Lustenau and LASK.
Dundalk edged out Wexford 2-1 with Jordan’s tip Cairan Kilduff coming off the bench to hit the winner.
Many of my tips are based on stats and that’s how it goes sometimes. I suggested Leicester would win 1-0 or 2-0 and I can’t see them now not winning the Premier League.
It’s Champions League night on Tuesday and I’ve posted a separate preview of Man City v Dynamo Kiev and Atletico Madrid v PSV – hopefully everyone’s got Day 1 Cheltenham winnings to play with.
There are seven English League matches and three in Scotland and I’ve gone over them with an RFO in hand to seek out my selections.
So first up is the Super Single and while it’s a risky Morton should beat Queen of the South for the third time this season. As far as the play-offs are concerned both sides must win to closen the gap on fourth-place Raith – in fact if Morton don’t they can forget it.
The Greenock side have just lost back-to-back games to Celtic and Rangers but weren’t disgraced in either and face a Queens side who have lost eight of their last nine away from home and went down 2-0 at Cappielow earlier in the season.
My Top Treble isn’t too exciting. I’m starting with Hull who let me down at the weekend. They should bounce back against a Nottingham Forest side who sacked boss Dougie Freedman and put coach Paul Williams in charge until the end of the season after last week’s 3-0 defeat at home to Sheffield Wednesday.
Hull are without a win in four so must get back on track in their bid to catch Middlesbrough who have brought manager Aitor Karanka back into the fold after he missed the midweek defeat at Charlton.
Add Oxford who are also trying to recover from the weekend defeat at home to Orient. Luckily they face an almost doomed Dagenham at home and having beaten second-bottom York 4-0 a couple of weeks ago the result could be a similar one.
Complete the treble with Peterhead at home to Stranraer. It’s a midweek slog of a trip for the visitors – although many of their players will be picked up in the Central Belt on the way north – and they face a Peterhead side in superb form with five wins out of six and still with a slim of chance of catching leaders Dunfermline.
Interestingly Peterhead’s last six have seen both scoring so start a goals treble at Balmoor. Add Queen’s Park v Annan in League Two with fourth and fifth meeting in a vital clash at Hampden. Queen’s game are generally low scoring and Annan’s are high – so let’s hope the visitors whose last three have been 2-4, 3-3 and 2-2 spark a thriller.
Finish off with Fleetwood v Walsall. Five of Town’s last six have seen both score but they are underdogs against a Walsall side who followed a 3-1 defeat at Barnsley with a 4-1 win at Chesterfield at the weekend.
