MONDAY should have been a no-bet for me but I was willing to risk 0.9pts on a treble.
Under 2.5 goals at Wurzburger landed but Lens drew and there were no goals in the FA Cup tie between Southport and Fleetwood.
Well done to anyone who picked a winner and while the card wasn’t for me there’s nothing wrong with having a bet if you’ve done some research.
Tuesday’s a little better with Dundee United v Dunfermline in the Scottish Championship and Annan v Montrose in League Two. After a difficult start United will go joint top with their sixth straight win and should get it.
The signing of Tony Andreu on loan from Norwich changed United’s fortunes and it looks a straight fight between them and Hibs for the title as was predicted at the start of the season.
United, who will be weakened by the loss of injured defender Paul Dixon, are no bigger than 4-6 with Coral so I’m going to double them up with both to score at Annan v Montrose which is the riskier part of the bet.
Both sides are struggling in League Two and Montrose handed Edinburgh City their first win as a senior club at the weekend. Annan are favourites to win this but it’s difficult to trust them. I thought about Annan to score 2+ but eight of their last 10 games have seen both scoring so I’m going for that.
Montrose to score is a slight worry but they’re playing a side who usually conceded and seven of the last eight meetings have been high scoring.
In England there are EFL Trophy games and I’ll picked out a treble. First up I’m going for Leicester U-23s to beat Walsall simply going by team news. Leicester say they’ll field up to five first-team players including Leonardo Ulloa while Walsall will field mainly youngsters.
Add over 2.5 goals at Norwich U-23s v MK Dons and Chelsea U-23s v Oxford. Norwich kids have netted 11 in their two matches and Greg’s taken a double of Norwich and Chelsea which fills me with confidence. I’d earlier taken Wycombe v Coventry but that’s a Wednesday game.
Elsewhere there are some National League matches and not much else as we continue the build-up to the World Cup qualifiers.
