I STARTED October with a loser on a day when many sides expected to score didn’t.
As often happens the shortest team on my treble lost and Brentford not scoring at home to Wigan surprised everyone.
My other two picks – Norwich and Las Palmas – both netted two away from home.
Someone had a dig about the Bets of the Day – and I don’t mind but I’ll respond if it’s unfair – so I’ve worked out the stats for September and I don’t think they’re anything to complain about. These are based me staking 3pts.
Today I’m going for a Spanish double – Villarreal at Espanyol and Athletic Bilbao at Malaga. Villarreal have netted on five of their last six visits to Espanyol and their last five have seen both to score.
Bilbao have started the season well and could win at Malaga. They’ve won on two of their last three visits there and netted seven in three in La Liga.
Other teams I looked at shorter prices included Leicester at home to Southampton, Spurs at home to Man City, Mainz at Wolfsburg and Marseille at Angers.
Bet of the Day
- Villarreal to score (5.30pm)
- Athletic Bilbao to score (5.30pm)
