IT’S Good Friday and where football betting is concerned it’s not your normal Friday with almost full cards in English League One and Two as well as several friendly internationals.
Unfortunately for me it is business as usual as I still have two pages to fill in Saturday’s Daily Record so my main focus is on that.
However, I’m ahead of the game so I’ve spent some time picking out selections for tonight from the English card – and totally ignoring the friendly internationals.
Last night I didn’t quite make it. My Super Single was a double beaten by Ecuador surprisingly being held by Paraguay – and well done to Jordan whose 2 goal tip landed in injury time.
And I was a goal short in the Scotland game of landing the Top Treble – and the Scots were denied a stonewall penalty as they won 1-0 in Prague.
Today I’m going with Barnsley as my Super Single. They are clinging on to the final play-off spot and face a Scunthorpe side who will have to go for a win if they have any chance of making it.
That could play into the hands of Barnsley who have won four out of five while Scunny’s only success in six was against Doncaster but they have drawn five of those.
There are loads of both to score tips flying about and my treble features one of the most popular – Accrington v Orient. I read on WeLoveBetting that 16 of Stanley’s 18 at home have seen both score and that’s good enough for me.
Add Shrewsbury v Port Vale and York v Crawley. The Shrews’ last two have been 2-2 while Vale’s last two have featured nine goals.
It’s do or die for York who are seven points adrift of safety. They have go to for the win and that could lead to goals as Crawley are in decent form with two wins and two draws in their last four. York usually lose but can score.
For the Top Treble I like Bristol Rovers at a decent price at home to Cambridge as they go for six wins in a row. Add Northampton, who have thrown in some draws recently, but remain in great form ahead of their meeting with Newport.
I’ve decided to complete the treble with Oxford at home to Stevenage but it coul as easily been Portsmouth, Cheltenham or Eastleigh. Take your pick.
Remember to check out We Love Betting for their weekend tips and video chat – and I imagine they’ll have a full Friday service too.
