IT was a full house of top tips for the second time in three days and Northern Ireland’s fine win at home to Finland made it four correct Super Singles in row since Thursday.
I’m happy with the turnaround in form and should finish March in profit after a rollercoaster run that’s saw me twice down more than 16 points.
While I tipped the Irish to win the Super Single was a safer bet on draw no bet and at 17-20 I was happy to take it. The Top Treble was looking good after Germany and Scotland covered the advised handicaps and Hungary avoided defeat to Greece to bring up a 13-8 three-point winner.
The goals single went down to the wire with Republic if Ireland equalising in the final minute to bring up both to score at 23-20 against Poland.
After a busy week we have a quiet Monday with League Two leaders Burton at home to Stevenage and a pile of international friendlies to look at. Burton have been in fine form despite a long list of injuries and four wins on the spin have moved then five points clear at the top. Now boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has been boosted by the arrival of three loan signings and they are in line to make their debuts.
Liverpool pair Jack Dunn and Kevin Stewart and Birmingham striker Denny Johnstone come in with Robbie Weir banned and Florent Cuvelier, Mickael Antoine-Curier, Stefan Maletic and Callum Reilly injured.
Stevenage, without a win in three and with just one goal in that spell, hope Ben Kennedy is back in time after being on international duty with Northern Ireland Under-19s. Defender Harry Worley is still out but midfielder Simon Walton and loan signing Jack Jebb should return.
The head-to-head stats are fairly neutral but with Burton decent value at 39-40 with McBookie and BetVictor I’m happy to take them as the Super Single.
I’m reluctant to bet on any friendly without firm team news or confirmed starting line-ups but I’ve taken note of raaljaca’s comments about Algeria at Oman. He’s tipping Algeria to score over 1.5 goals and an Algeria win and I agree with those calls as the Africans have a strong squad in the Arabs.
Algeria’s 1-0 defeat to Qatar last week was a surprise but Oman are an even weaker opponent. While they defeated Malaysia 6-0 last week they struggle against better opposition and recently have lost 4-0 to Australia, 4-1 to China and 3-1 to Qatar.
There’s still hope of my goals single finishing in profit by the end of the month and it could happen if Algeria score over 2.5 goals. That pays 10-3 and I’d advise caution. My 3.5pts stake is simply an attempt by me – so it’s my bet – to wipe out the March losses. Normally this would be a 1pt bet so please be aware of that.
