IT was a toss-up between over 2.5 goals and both to score at Aldershot and unfortunately I picked the wrong one.
So while the second part of my double at NY Red Bulls came in my bet was beaten at the first hurdle I – and I assume many others – recouped their losses on Greg Browning’s superb nap.
He advised over 2.5 Eupen goals at 4-5 and the bet landed before HT as the Belgians ran out 6-0 winners. That was a cracking pick at what’s a great price when it wins.
That’s the quiet nights over and now we’re into six days of Euro 2016 qualifiers and loads of other matches. I’ve posted a Euro 2016 preview summing up the situation in Groups D, F and I and there is a separate Scotland v Poland article.
I’ve made my feelings on all eight games being played and while everyone’s been banging on about goals they could be in short supply tonight. The only game that looks a strong candidate for both to score is Scotland v Poland while Ireland v Germany, Georgia v Gibraltar and Hungary v Faroes could go over 2.5.
Picking a Super Single wasn’t easy and while Robert Lewandowski to score at 6-4 with Coral is tempting it’s a bet I’d be posting and hoping for a loser. Everyone knows I want Scotland to win tonight so it’s difficult to think with my head.
Anyway I was keen to do a goals bet as my Super Single so I’ve decided to go with a double – over 1.5 match goals in Glasgow and over 1.5 Germany goals in Dublin.
For my Top Treble I’m on Germany to win, Portugal to beat Denmark and Northern Ireland not to lose at home to Greece. If Kyle Lafferty was playing I’d back the Irish and I might even consider them if Liam Boyce got the nod to start.
Portugal have won five out of five qualifiers with Cristiano Ronaldo playing. He netted the only goal when they met in Copenhagen and could well be on target tonight. The Real Madrid man is 22-23 at 888sport to score and 11-4 with BetVictor to net first.
