IT was a strange weekend and most punters will be glad it’s over. I said on Saturday the card was as tough as it could be but still landed three decent winners.
On Sunday it looked a bit better but not brilliant and we’re learning all the time about how some sides don’t perform well after midweek European matches.
My Sunday Super Single was Crystal Palace not to lose at Spurs and I saw many tips for them to win but it didn’t happen for them on the day.
I picked a both teams to score treble that looked good on the stats but Carpi and Stuttgart failed to net and I thought I was going to get out of jail on the Top Treble.
After over 2.5 goals at Bodo/Glimt and Barcelona -2 I needed a Marseille win. But they conceded to Lyon then went down to 10 men before the game was suspended after crowd trouble.
I was hoping that would leave me with a double but it started again and even though Marseille equalised the treble was beaten.
Last night I mentioned just three games – Derby v Burnley, Sporting v Nacional and Braga v Maritimo – and I’ve decided to combine two of them in a Super Single.
I wanted to hear resident Rams fan Nathan Ufton’s thoughts on the Championship game but he’s surprised me by going unders. Both sides have seen five of their seven matches bring up the both to score market, including all three of Derby’s games, so I’m going with both to score. It’s worth pointing out Burnley have won seven of the last eight meetings between the sides.
Sporting have started the season well with three wins and a draw to sit second behind Porto but if they are to challenge the big two sides in Portugal they have to beat side such as Nacional at home. They should do so but 3-10 is too short for a single so I;m making it a Super Single double.
I like the stats posted by Russ stating Maritimo had scored in every game since March 15 v Sporting. Ten of their last 11 have seen both score so it the figures suggests a Braga win and btts.
Meanwhile, admin have asked me to thank everyone for their contributions over the weekend … and their patience. Despite problems with the site on Friday night and early Saturday morning we saw record traffic and the site continues to grow with the help of many people.
The new site is built and almost ready to launch. We’re testing it this week and if there are no problems we’ll soon be good to go. I’m sure the improvements, new tipsters and additional features will be welcomed by everyone.
