I’VE said before I hate the way UEFA have split the Euro qualifiers over three nights and it’s great to see the finishing line in sight.
From a betting point of view with most people preferring to pick teams playing on the same day it restricts choice and with so many short-priced countries on the coupon you have to work hard to find value.
Take Friday’s Super Single for example. I said best bet was England to win to nil and also advised -2AH but for value I took England -2 and it was a goal short.
My Top Treble was a disaster with none out of three even though Slovakia, Slovenia and Cork were all short prices. Who was it said goals bets were the way to go – I’ll try to listen harder.
The only good thing about the Slovakia result is the fact they are perceived to be Scotland’s main rivals for second spot behind England in World Cup qualifying and a home defeat by Belarus must give Gordon Strachan some food for thought on a day when McBookie priced us up at 1-7 NOT to qualify for Russia 2018.
There is another batch of Euro qualifiers tonight but I’ve mainly focused on the English league and non-league card although an early Super Single was Dunfermline to score over 1.5 goals at St Mirren in the Challenge Cup and full reasoning for that is on the Scottish betting preview.
A second pick is Peterborough at Swindon in League One. Peterborough have won two out of three under new boss Graham Westley and beat Millwall 5-3 last week while the Robins are in freefall.
These are my tips from today’s Daily Record. Don’t try to do them all and keep the long shots to low stakes.
