IT was yet another night of late drama in my 12 Plays of Christmas competition. A 90th-minutes strike by Jake Livermore handed Hull City a 2-1 over Reading while an injury-time equaliser for Whitehawk had a huge bearing on who made it through to Day 10.
I said things were starting to get tougher and so it proved. Don’t expect any respite in Day 10’s fixtures either.
Day 9 Round-Up
Five members must have been biting their nails at the 6 plus minutes of injury time played at the KC Stadium but Hull held on to grab a vital win as far as @greaves, @hellobad, @sean567, @dazzyy and @jpq were concerned.
They’re joined in Day 10 by @andrewklcc who’ll need to play his Second Chance card after he backed Sporting who only managed a draw in 90 mins at Braga despite leading the tie twice.
@goliath makes up the final seven. For the second time in three days he picked out the biggest-priced winner, siding with Hertha who won at 11-8. He picks up another £50 in free bets at Skybet to add to the £40 he won earlier in the tournament.
Remember, if there’s more than one ‘last man standing’ at the end of Day 12 then the winner will be determined, firstly by those who haven’t played their Second Chance card, then if there’s still a tie by the highest accumulated odds across all 12 day’s selections so the odds of the winners you pick could be crucial in the final reckoning.
I’ll do a wrap up of those accumulated odds for those still standing at the end of Day 10.
It’s another day where matches are thin on the ground. There are some short-priced favourites in the likes of the Copa Del Ray but at this stage of the competition it’s about showing you can pick out a value bet so the games I’ve selected look fairly evenly matched.
Here are the 5 fixtures from which you must select ONE home win, away win or draw. Your entry must be in by kick-off in your team’s match and you must be a Silver or Gold Member to take part.
- 19:30 Evian TG 13/5 Draw 19/10 Nancy 1/1 (French Ligue 2)
- 19:30 D Dresden 4/6 Draw 12/5 Würzburg Kickers 7/2 (German Liga 3)
- 19:45 Wolves 1/1 Draw 9/4 Leeds 3/1
- 20:00 Sampdoria 11/5 Draw 23/10 AC Milan 5/4 (Coppa Italia)
- 20:00 Granada 21/20 Draw 23/10 Leganés 11/4 (Copa Del Rey)
Today’s Daily Prize jumps up to a £100 free bet with Skybet which is well worth winning. It’ll go to the person who picks the biggest winner – if there is more than one a random draw will be made. This is only available to those still in the competition.
Please note that you can only play your Second Chance card ONCE. If you miss a day you are deemed to have picked a losing selection and are not entitled to play the next day unless you still have your Second Chance card to play.
