IT was a great Bank Holiday Monday for myself and many of the site regulars.
My confident 6pt Super Single on Dundalk -2 came in spectacularly as the League of Ireland champions beat Bray 8-2.
And my 7-1 Top Treble also landed thanks to over 2.5 goals at Hull v Arsenal and Kayseri v Sivasspor and both to score at Gothenburg v Falkenberg.
My wins were of course overshadowed by Harpreet’s 16-1 success on a free-kick to be scored at Hull and let’s hope we can see a bit more goodwill to a guy whose recent record can’t be questioned.
The site’s not all about me because there’s only so much one person can do and there were a lot of comments on Monday that proved what a team effort this is, especially from those watching the Bray game and suggesting there was no need to cover when Dundalk led 4-1 at the break.
I sacrificed 0.25pts on Bray to win the second half at 16-1 and later did the same with 0.5pt on under 2.5 goals at Hull when Arsenal led 2-0. These covers have been deducted off my winnings.
Tuesday’s much quieter and I’ve posted a preview on the Champions League semi-final between Juventus and Real Madrid. I don’t see Real losing and draw is the most likely result – they’re the better team but Juve’s incredible home record has to be respected.
Under 2.5 goals in the game looks on but Cristiano Ronaldo to score at 17-10 with 888sport at any time is my best bet on the game.
There aren’t enough matches for me to post a Top Treble but I’ve decided to go with both to score at Inverness v Dundee Utd as the Super Single. It’s another game that’s tough to call and again a draw is possible.
Neither side is in good form with Scottish Cup finalists ICT having won just once in 90 minutes in 11 matches. United did well to beat Aberdeen at the weekend but before that they’d lost four in five.
The Tangerines though have conceded in their last 13 away games so a clean sheet is unlikely. ICT are without their best defender this season with David Raven banned. Both have netted in this fixture in four out of six so 10-11 at BetVictor and William Hill is a fair price.
