I THOUGHT it was a tough card on Saturday and that’s how it proved.
What I didn’t expect was Hull to lose at home to Sunderland and they beat me for my Top Treble and homes fivefold – although the stake is returned for one wrong.
It was two out of three on both goals trebles but Desmond had a better day with two out of three winners. His 2+ double came up at 7-4 thanks to Raith and Portsmouth as did his both to score double at 5-4.
Plymouth were my Super Single but were held at Grimsby when just one more goal would have given them the League Two title at the expense of fierce rivals Portsmouth.
On Sunday there are plenty of big games to look and I’ve posted a separate preview on Partick Thistle v Rangers and Hearts v Aberdeen.
In the Premier League it’s Liverpool v Southampton and Arsenal v Man United. Liverpool have already lost three times to the Saints this season while the Gunners are priced up around evens with United expected to field a weakened team ahead of their Europa League semi-final second leg against Celta Vigo.
And there is of course a full final Championship card with Brighton or Newcastle to be crowned champions, Blackburn, Birmingham or Nottm Forest to be relegated and play-off order to be resolved. We also have the second leg of the League One play-offs.
On the Continent there are big games in Italy, Spain, Germany and France and elsewhere.
Aberdeen were posted as my Super Single last night with reasoning in the preview.
For an early Top Treble I’m looking at three Championship games. Backed by a full house Forest should get the win they need to be safe unless they’re hit by nerves. Take fast-finishing Norwich to end with a flourish at home to QPR and backed Brentford to score 2+ against Blackburn. The Bees will probably win as they’re on a great run but of course Rovers’ need is greater.
I’ve taken Partick not to lose with Nice at least to draw at Marseille in the late French game.
There is also a both to score treble and a homes fivefold which returns the stake for one wrong.
