GOALS bets are the way ahead – if you pick the right ones. Luckily on Monday I got it spot on with both to score and over 2.5 goals at Elfsborg v Norrkoping and the 13-10 pick came up inside 21 minutes.
Norrkoping remain top despite their 3-2 defeat and with two games to go only one point separates the top three so it’s going to be a fascinating race to the finish.
All four league matches in Sweden saw both scoring and over 3.5 goals and while two of them were on my btts treble I added the match at Pogon which had been well tipped. The stats stood up and I can’t blame anyone but myself for deciding to go with it.
So we move on to a massive night of action on Tuesday with the resumption of the Champions League as well as Championship, League One and League Two action and two matches in Scotland including a Challenge Cup quarter-final between Rangers and Livingston. Rangers are no bigger than 1-9 but defeated Championship basement boys Livi 3-0 in the league so minus two at 10-11 with Skybet could be worth a look.
I’ve spent a few hours this morning looking at form, stats and team news and I’ve to cut down some long lists. Teams close to being the Super Single included Birmingham at Bolton, Reading at Rotherham, Burnley at Nottingham Forest, Port Vale at Colchester and Accrington at home to Wimbledon.
Although Bolton are bottom they are unbeaten at home so I’ll leave that one out and take the others on a long shot trixie – with two out of three covering the stake.
In my mind I wanted to back a home for the Super Single and was surprised to see unbeaten leaders Brighton at 1-1 at home to a Bristol City side who only moved off the bottom last week with a victory against a Forest outfit who were poor on the night.
Brighton are a much tougher opposition and although the evens has already been cut I’m on Chris Hughton’s men to make it five wins and a draw at home. Skipper Gordon Greer is a doubt but Jamie Murphy is available and Bobby Zamora could start after netting the winner at Leeds as a sub.
Greg and others have put up strong both to score and overs tips with matches such as QPR v Sheffield Wednesday and Peterborough v Wigan featuring heavily.
I’m going for Arsenal v Bayern for reasons stated on my Champions League preview plus Morecambe v Crawley and Sheffield Utd v Fleetwood. If I get time I’ll put up a goals post with full reasoning – and I’ve added an over 2.5 goals fourfold to make it a maximum stake of almost 10pts today.
