Mr Fixit’s World Cup Top Tips: Third-place play-off promises goals

MRF_WorldCup18_TopTips
THERE is the small matter of a World Cup third-fourth place play-off today as Belgium meet England today – and the not so small matter of a string of Betfred Cup matches.

The Scottish domestic season got under way last nigh with a 0-0 draw between Killie and St Mirren and that should be a warning to punters to take it easy on these early group games.

I’ve put up a couple of accas but I wouldn’t go made on them. There is a separate Betfred Cup preview with some suggestions.

As far as the World Cup goes it was Belgium who won 1-0 when two weakened sides met at the group stage and both managers are likely to ring the changes again.

Roberto Martinez’s squad looks to have more depth and have a day extra to prepare. Back them at 6-5 at Betfred and bet365 although I’d like to see line-ups before having a punt.

Since 1978 the third-place game has gone over 2.5 goals 10 times out of 10 while six have gone over 3.5. Over 2.5 is 4-6 at Marathonbet while over 3.5 returns 6-4 at bet365.

Greg has posted a separate preview on the game and I’ll put up World Cup Final tips later.

Well done to any winners yesterday and good luckj with all of your bets today.

    slight difference of opinion from what Skybet and Bet365 view as the total corners so far in the World Cup …571 against 574 respectively….i placed a bet with Skybet on under 595.5…and with the extra time in England game i was just checking with them that they had not been added…….90 mins only….

    Any Arsenal fans on here know much about the young lad Armstrong Okoflex that’s just signed for Celtic from the gunners? He’s joining the development squad where he will play alongside Celtic own wonderkid Karamoko Dembele

    Treble pays just under 5-1 (1pt)

    Apologies anyone who followed my Jacquelin tip for Scottish Open (missed cut). Just underlines how difficult it is to pick golf winners at the start of a tournament…should take my own advice and wait until Saturday before picking.
    Anyway, good luck all with a bet on 👍

    Morning gents

    Betfred Cup action continues today in Scotland after last nights opener and whilst I agree with Mr F to go easy on these games there are still a good few matches I like the look of.

    Dundee United v Arbroath
    St Johnstone v East Fife

    Joint Championship favourites Dundee United kick off this cup campaign against Arbroath who were promoted to league 1 last season – United mean businesss this season wth some good signings and although for me the jury is still out on Shaba Lazlo, they have recruited well and should win this comfortably-? 4/9 is a generous price for this game

    The famous Perth St Johnstone kick off against East Fife, and new sigining Tony Watt is expected to make his competitive debut. The squad is starting to take shape and our record against teams from lower leagues is exceptional. We should make light work of this scoring a few goals

    Back Dundee United to Win
    St Johnstone v E Fife over 2.5 goals

    Pays 11/10 (Ladbrokes) (NAP)

    Belguim/ England. Belguim put out a less team in the last match v England and won comfy don’t see it any other way today. Don’t think Kane and Trippier will feature today and surely Southgate will give players not featured so far a run.

      Changes are going to be made with what i have read,also Lukaku looks like he might be rested.I’m on Belgium think they should win this,last thing any of these sides want is penalties.

    Morning all. The Danish super league has started up and today see’ s the reigning champs FC Midtjylland take on AGF.

    Midtjylland have by far the strongest team in the league and will be up there come the end of the season again.

    Mind you AGF had a very good end to the season which was only backed up by a behind closed doors 5-1 win over newly relagated SV Hamburg . That is some win even if it a friendly.

    Hatrick hero Jakob Ankersen had made a good partnership with Junker up top and these two will be the top scorers for AGF.

    Ankersen ATGS @6.50
    First goal scorer @19.00
    Last goal scorer @19.00

    Hoping he can nick one today at a big price imo.

    Nap BTTS @1.80

    Good luck today.

    (1500 KO):

    Plenty of changes but the pressure is off and they’ll be a good few wanting to make a mark at what is still effectively a World Cup game!

    Neither side will be playing for the draw or the prospect of extra time and I can well see goals and a high tempo from the off:

    BTTS & OVER 2.5 MGS…4/5

    Celtic v Standard Liege and starting with the same 10 outfield players from the other night, Bain in goals being the only change. First home game albeit a friendly but I expect us too put in a shift and go at it. Dembele and Edouard up top are very dangerous, McGregor has started were he left off last season

    Celtic too score in both halves 15/8

    Celtic BTTS and WIN 10/3

        Fancied celtic over 1.5 team goals but not listed.

    Seen the team sheets and one thing is clear Belgium are going for this! I seriously fear for England
    Belgium have been far better and judging on both their last game this is only going 1 way
    England have 5 changes which apart from rubens I feel weaken the side and if Harry Kane turns up again like Wednesday bang goes our goal threat!

    Chilean Cup action for an early soiree in SA…

    COBRELOA VS. UNIVERSIDAD CHILE (2030 KO):

    Primera outfit Universidad lead this encounter 1-2 on aggregrate after the first round and I reckon they might just have a shout at a couple more tonight as the hosts go all out for an equaliser.

    Only one of the last 7 H2Hs has seen less than 3 goals with 4 of those 7 seeing 4 or more match goals – add in the fact that Universidad have now scored a brace in their last 5 consecutive games and this could make for an interesting match-up:

    Two selections to consider:

    UNIVERSIDAD GOAL BEFORE 50:00…5/6
