GARETH BALE got me out of jail as he landed two Super Singles at once with his late winner in Cyprus.
I backed the Wales superstar at 7-2 to score first and 5-4 at any time so I’ve started September with three winners.
It was a different story with the accas as Croatia beat the Top Treble with a tame 0-0 draw in Azerbaijan and Holland downed the btts double by not scoring at home to Iceland.
In hindsight Iceland to score was the bet and Holland’s best chance of reaching the final now looks to be through the play-offs with the islanders all set to qualify for their first tournament.
The Euro 2016 qualifiers continue tonight with games in Group D, F and I. I’ve put up a preview covering the matches in Scotland’s Group D and will try to add to that throughout the day.
In Group F you have to fancy Northern Ireland to stay on track for the final with a win at the Faroes while Greece v Finland looks a classic for unders as Bulgaria v Norway was last night.
In Group I we have under-fire Scots ref Willie Collum in charge of Denmark v Albania. Collum was blasted for sending off Hearts’s Callum Paterson at Hamilton at the weekend and that red’s been rescinded. Anyone fancy a sending-off in Copenhagen?
Much of my focus is on Saturday’s Daily Record column and my weekend selections but I’m putting some top tips now and may add to them. In my Euro 2016 preview I tip Scotland to win and believe it will be one goals – probably 1-0.
So the first Super Single is Scotland to win by one at 12-5 with bet365 and I’m taking Robbie Keane at 5-2 to score first for Ireland against Gibraltar.
Got to mention Greg Browning for picking another winning nap and everyone else who posted successful tips – and a word of consolation for selectabet whose combo correct score treble needed another Italy goal to stay alive.
