FOR a midweek night it was decent enough but not perfect. My Super Single landed and I was pleased with that as Brighton fought back to win from 1-0 down.
Greg Browning picked three out of four winners including his Nap and NB and a late Gillingham goal handed Desmond his 11-4 2+ double. All that on a day when racing tipster Johnb made a 10pts profit. Next up it’s Ace Venturer who has picked 35-1 and 50-1 winners in the past two weeks – and his tips for this week are now up.
It was somewhat apt I chose a WDW winner on Tuesday while the goals guys stuck to what they like and with success.
My own both to score treble was surprisingly beaten by Bayern Munich and the over 1.5 goals treble never got off the ground with a 0-0 at QPR – a result that was a complete shock going by stats but late team news revealed Rangers had rotated and if we’d known that we’d have left it out. That game also denied Greg a full house.
Anyway that’s two Super Single winners in a row and I was pleased I talked myself out of Burnley and Reading although Birmingham, who I also fancied, edged out Bolton.
I’m going for three Super Single winners in a row and have decided to take Atletico Madrid -2 AH after team news confirmed Astana will rest half their team ahead of a vital league match at leaders Kairat Almaty which they must win at the weekend for a chance to retain their Kazakhstan title.
Atletico have won one and drawn one and played well to win at Real Sociedad at the weekend. They are too short at a biggest 1-7 to win but well worth a look on the handicaps -1 pays 4-11, -2 is 11-10 and -2AH is 4-6. Against a weakened side they should cover the -2 handicap.
Antoine Griezmann is worth a look at first scorer after hitting a double at Galatasaray and netting at the weekend. He is too short at 4-7 for anytime scorer and I’ve decided to put up a double on two better-priced strikers.
Wolfsburg should beat PSV in Man United’s group and I like the look of old favourite Bas Dost to score. He’s a streaky striker and netted in his side’s 4-2 defeat of Hoffenheim at the weekend.
In homage to site contributor Nathan Ufton I’m adding Chris Martin to score for Derby at Blackburn. Rams fan Nathan’s posted a fine write-up on the game and while I believe Derby will win I’d rather take Martin to score at 11-8 with bet365 and BetVictor.
The Scotland striker is in form with four goals in three games and was denied a hat-trick against Wolves at the weekend by a missed penalty.
I thought about Wolfsburg on the treble but instead I’m going for both to score in the VW Arena. PSV’s last seven have saw both scoring, including Champions League matches with Man Utd and CSKA Moscow, while Wolfsburg have conceded in their last five – a total of 12 goals.
In the Championship on-form Derby head for Blackburn, new boss Steve Evans takes Leeds to Fulham and Wolves were a Super Single contender at 21-20 with Betfred at home to Brentford.
As I’ve said I like Derby and also Wolves but as it’s midweek Championship I’m completing the treble with Derby not to lose and Wolves to net 2+. Wolves have scored seven in three (2, 3 and 3) while Brentford have conceded two or more goals in five of their last seven.
I’ll post a separate Champions League preview – and remember to register if you want a chance of winning a free subscription to the new site.
