FOR a quiet Tuesday it wasn’t a bad night. My 13-10 Super Single landed as did my 2pts both to score double.
Greg Browning marked his new site debut with two winners out of two and I felt for Desmond who saw Cheltenham crack five but was beaten for a 2+ double by Bromley netting just once. The bet though could have been covered as their strike came before half-time.
There was also a winner on my new Betting Club feature but for Bet of the Day I went with Desmond’s Bromley bet so that was down – and if we’d known the latest team news we wouldn’t have bet on Bromley.
Thanks for all the contributions and remember to check the forum for additional tips and comments. For anyone mulling over whether to become a Gold member it’s worth pointing out you’d already have won more than £35 by backing the Super Single, Goals Double and Betting Club single.
In fact if you also followed Greg’s two tips on the Clyde v Morton U-20s you could buy one for a mate too!
Wednesday’s even quieter than Tuesday with two JP Trophy matches to look at and one National League game.
There are a couple of African World Cup qualifiers and international friendlies as well as Under-21 and Under-19 Euro ties.
I’ve researched as many as possible and while the sensible approach would be to make it a no-bet day I’m taking a chance on a 2pts Super Single that is in reality a treble. Please don’t back it if you have any concerns.
Start with under 2.5 goals in the Estonia v Georgia friendly. Both nations are “unders” sides – they don’t concede easily but struggle to score. Look at the stats – only two of Estonia’s last 16 internationals have gone over 2.5 goals and both were 3-0 defeats.
Georgia performed OK in Scotland’s tough group but if you ignore their wins against Gibraltar – and we could put together a Mr Fixit’s XI and beat the side from the Rock – they haven’t netted more than once since beating the mighty Saudi Arabia 11 games ago.
Add over 0.5 Aldershot goals at home to Lincoln. This is a tough National League game to call but there should be goals. I wouldn’t put anyone off both to score but with Lincoln conceding five at Whitehawk in the FA Cup I’m playing safe for this treble with Aldershot to net at any time.
Complete the bet with Croatia U-21s to beat San Marino U-21s to nil in their Euro qualifier. In three games this campaign the Croats haven’t conceded while San Marino haven’t scored. In fact the minnows have played 10 matches since beating Wales in September, 2013 without hitting the target.
I looked at handicap bets but the line is set at -4 or -5 and it seems more of a 3-0 or 4-0 home win when the stats are considered.
If full markets are released later for the Cove Rangers v Rothes game in the Highland League I might add a tip. Cove lie top with 14 wins out of 14 and face a side who collected their first point of the season at the weekend at home to Buckie after 15 successive losses.
We often talk of “new boss bounce” but this was like a leap across the Niagara Falls as Fraser Bremner’s arrival sparked an amazing turnaround. However, a trip to Cove is as tough as it gets.
Rothes have conceded 86 goals in 16 games and have lost 11 in a row to Cove losing an average of 4.5 goals. Bookies will know this and I can’t see them giving much away. Also if this game was played in my back yard it would be rained off so hopefully the weather up north is a bit better.
Finally, as we know team news is vital. All my tips will remain here and be free but I’ve started a team news thread under English Football on the members’ only forum and will add as much there as I can every day. I hope as many contribute as possible and make it the go-to section for latest team news.
