THERE were goals galore at Newcastle as expected but my long-shot Super Single of Norwich and both to score went the wrong way.
Credit to the Racing Post, as I mentioned earlier, who went with Newcastle and btts at 9-2 as Steve McClaren’s men notched their first win of the season. It was one out of three on my advised accas for a small profit.
I did a rare teams to score treble that paid just over 3-1 and came in thanks to Nice after earlier goals for Lorient and Lazio.
It’s the start of a busy week with Champions League and Europa League ties but first we have some games to look at on Monday.
In the Premier League it’s Swansea v Stoke which I’m afraid is unlikely to be a thriller while in La Liga it’s bottom-of-the-table Granada at a Sporting Gijon side who have started well but failed to win at home three outings.
There are also matches to look at in Scandinavia and countries such as Turkey, Greece and Ireland.
I’ve updated my goals chart and most of the teams in there fulfilled their part of the deal at the weekend. Swedish leaders Norrkoping are the only side in there in action on Monday.
They have won nine of their last 10 so tempt at 19-10 with bet365 and Ladbrokes at Elfsborg but in the head to heads they’ve lost four of the past five meetings. Norrkoping, aiming to win the title for the first time since 1989, are two points clear of Gothenburg who visit Djurgarden tonight.
Goals could be the best bet at Elfsborg with eight of the last 10 meetings going over 2.5 goals and nine of Norrkoping’s previous 11 have gone that way. At just 4-7 with Ladbrokes it’s only worth doing as a double or in a treble while over 3.5 goals pays 6-4 at BetVictor.
Elsewhere in Sweden Orebro have climbed away from the drop zone with six wins in a row and are 17-10 at BetVictor and bet365. Even on the h2h they’ve won the last three but I’ll need to see if there’s any team news to put me off the away win with Gefle losing five of their last seven.
Having spent some time on research this morning I’ve decided on a Super Single of both to score and over 2.5 goals at Elfsborg.
For the treble take btts at Elfsborg which means for both bets I need goals there but with both sides having plenty to pay for that’s no problem for me.
Complete with the treble Pogon whose match has been heavily tipped for goals by Johnb, Wato and others. The price on over 2.5 goals is well over evens so I’m playing safer with over 1.5 at 4-11.
