WELL that’s Estonia off my list of potential holiday destinations. I put up what was a well-reasoned and well-researched treble as the Super Single and two parts kept up their side of the bargain.
As expected Croatia U-21s kept a clean sheet and even suggested 4-0 as a correct score against San Marino. Greg’s HT Asian Handicap bet on the game was void.
Aldershot scored in their home defeat to Lincoln but by then it was too late as Estonia – for them – had gone goal crazy to beat Georgia. They never net two so to win 3-0 was akin to ahem, Man United, attacking for 90 minutes.
Two out of three wasn’t bad but it’s not a winner. Another match I highlighted was Cove against Rothes in the Highland League but I had a meeting with Desmond so never got a chance to see if any markets were added to the WDW odds. Cove made it 15 wins out of 15 with a 6-0 romp and are worth keeping an eye on.
Wednesday sees the start of the Euro 2016 play-offs with Norway facing Hungary. There are AFC World Cup qualifiers and U-21 and U-19 ties.
I quite like Norway tonight but I’m not convinced by them. If I was having a bet it would be on under 2.5 goals but bookies believe that too and it pays about 1-2 with most firms. The majority of Euro play-offs go under and first legs in particular are cagey.
Later there are South America World Cup qualifiers and I like Chile at home to Colombia. The Chileans, who have no major injury problems, have won nine of their last 10 matches including their run all the way to becoming Copa America winners for the first time.
They’ve started their World Cup campaign with two wins – 2-0 at home to Brazil and 4-3 at Peru. Alexis Sanchez, Eduardo Vargas and Arturo Vidal score the bulk of their goals and I’m on Arsenal ace Sanchez who is in the form of his life to score at any time at 7-5 with bet365 and Ladbrokes.
Colombia, minus Cuadrado and Radamel Falcao, went down 3-0 away to Uruguay last time out and while they have plenty of quality I fancy Chile at 3-4 with William Hill to make it three wins out of three.
Argentina v Brazil is the glamour game and while the home side are favourites they are without Lionel Messi, Sergio Aguero and Carlos Tevez so need Gonzalo Higuain, who has been in sparkling form for Napoli, and PSG star Angel di Maria to step up to the plate.
Brazil are still trying to recover from their World Cup disaster and are boosted by the return of talisman Neymar. However, they’re not the best of travellers and I don’t think Argentina will lose although a stalemate is possible. I’m looking at Argentina draw no bet at 4-5.
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 when relevant. I hope as many contribute as possible and make it the go-to section for latest team news.
