I DID two things well on Thursday night. 1. I waited for team news before putting up a tip and 2. I went for a goals bet as opposed to WDW for the Super Single.
My Super Single in the Daily Record yesterday was over 2.5 goals at Celtic-Fenerbahce but after team news revealed Efe Ambrose was starting with young Kieran Tierney also in defence I cranked it up a notch on the site with over 1.5 goals for the Turks.
We all know what happened next. With Celtic leading 2-0 after a super start Ambrose’s howler – after he had been rock solid for 44 minutes – gifted Fenerbahce a way back in and they ended up drawing 2-2.
The only other bet I advised was Molde and Fenerbahce to score at 4-5 with William Hill but it won’t be added to the stats.
Greg Browning landed another nap success at 10-11 with Slovan Liberec scoring at Marseille so it was a good night all in and it paid to be cautious with the Europa League fixtures.
As usual I’m concentrating on my Saturday Daily Record column and won’t put up Friday tips until that is written.
There is one game in the English Championship with Rotherham facing Burnley while Celta Vigo look decent at home to Getafe in La Liga.
In the Bundesliga new boys Darmstadt tackle Mainz and there are the usual games around the continent to look at including lower-league French and Dutch which will be popular for goals.
Best bets tonight could be Celta Vigo who thumped Barcelona 4-1 in their last home game and drew 3-3 with 10-man Las Palmas before that. A Celta win pays about the same as over 1.5 teams goals but both are around 1-2.
So my only bet tonight is to make the Super Single a double and take over 1.5 Celta goals and Darmstadt to score at home to Mainz. Promoted Darmstadt have lost only to Bayern Munich this season and drew 2-2 at Dortmund last time out. They’re a big price to beat Mainz but let’s just go with them to score.
