I’D rather my team won than my bets so it was a bit of a double whammy seeing Scotland crash to defeat in Georgia.
In the past I wouldn’t have risked a penny on the Scots but disastrous displays like the one we produced in Tbilisi were supposed to have been confined to the past.
One point was lost on Scotland to win by one and the second Super Single went down when Robbie Keane wasn’t the Republic of Ireland’s first scorer against Gibraltar.
Thankfully it was a profitable day as the Top Treble won at 4-1 thanks to Northern Ireland, both to score at Germany v Poland and under 2.5 goals at Greece v Finland.
On Saturday we have a mixture of Euro 2016 qualifiers and English and Scottish matches to look at. My top tips are from the Daily Record and feature exclusively domestic matches and I’ve posted a separate Euro 2016 and Scottish preview with recommended bets.
My Super Single is a team that’s been good to me recently and that’s Walsall. They are no certs at home to Bury who are probably in false position and have a quality striker on Tom Pope.
Walsall though have the prolific Tom Bradshaw but will be without Neil Etheridge and Jason Demetriou who are on international duty for Philippines and Cyprus respectively. New signing Isaiah Osbourne is in the squad.
Striker Leon Clarke and midfielder Kelvin Etuhu are doubts for Bury. On current form Walsall should beat a side conceding goals for fun but it’s League One and nothing is a given.
My Top Treble features Scunthorpe at home to Blackpool and it’s worth going against the sorry tangerines until the get a win under their belts. I’ve added Rangers -1 and Dunfermline to score but both have been cut. If you can’t find Pars to score look at Forfar clean sheet or go with both to score as that is likely to come in too.
Bets with points advised will be included in the stats but long shots won’t so do them for low stakes.
