MYSELF and Greg enjoyed a no-bet day on Thursday and we wish it had been a no-bet Friday too.
In fact it turned out to be a Freaky Friday with shock defeats for Borussia Dortmund, Lyon and Go Ahead – three sides I backed and who were mentioned lots of times on the site for good reason.
It was the manner of the defeats that were the biggest surprise with the trio of hot favourites losing by at least two goals. In fact a treble on Dortmund, Lyon and Go Ahead would have paid more than 100-1 but I bet no one was on it. Hamburg alone were 8-1 in places yet were three ahead before Pierre-Emerick Aubayemang’s late consolation.
That didn’t matter much except it made it four in a row on my Bet of the Day feature on the new forum.
My only other success of the night was with St Mirren v Morton as I tipped Morton DNB and under two goals. It took a 90th-minute equaliser to earn Morton a point but they were the better team and should have won.
Greg’s Nap was Westerlo to score because although they’re bottom they’ve been netting loads of goals on the road. Not this time though as they lost a man in 27 minutes as they crashed 5-0 at Gent.
So a busy Friday was a flop and that was a shame after a decent week for myself and Greg on the quieter nights.
Let’s hope we can pull some rabbits out of the hat on a full Saturday card and watch out for Greg’s tips on his own thread.
I’ll post a separate Scottish and English preview where there is reasoning for most of my picks but here are my top tips. European selections will be added tonight or in the morning.
Remember some are long shots and don’t try to do them all. All the tips we had on the old site remain free but there will be additional ones on the new forum for members only.
It’s also the place to go for comprehensive team news on this weekend’s UK league matches.
