MR  FIXIT'S asked me to have look at tonight's games – and I can see why.

He's away getting his eyebrows plucked or something just as important and left me to look a card where nothing stands out.

I'd rather have a Brazilian than try to pick some winners but needs must. The big game, I suppose, is the La Liga clash between Villarreal and Malaga.

When I look at the table it's difficult to accept Villarreal are struggling to avoid the drop and every time I see them play their football is brilliant but obviously the final product is lacking.

The Yellow Submarine have never recovered from a poor start and face a tough task against a side on course for their first appearance in the Champions League.

Manuel Pellegrini’s side had an ordinary start to the season but six wins in eight have catapulted them up to third place and they are a best 19-10 at BetVictor to notch an away win.

I noticed some tips from punters for anytime scorer. I'd go for Santi Cazorla whose goal earned a point recentlyagainst Real Madrid and he was on target again in Monday's 3-0 win over Racing. He is 14-5 at unibet to net and 17-2 to score first.

If Salomon Rondon isn't your cup of tea another player what about Ruud van Nistelrooy. The former Man Utd star has netted in two of his last three games and is 12-5 with Skybet to score and 7-1 with Ladbrokes and Skybet to break the deadlock.

There are two other games in La Liga, Sevilla v Zaragoza and Santander v Mallorca. Sevilla are no bigger than 8-15 with Ladbrokes to beat a Zaragoza side battling to beat the drop.

Before losing last time out to Athletic Bilbao last time out they had won three in a row so a home win is the call here even if the price is as skinny as my girlfriend would like to be.

Racing v Mallorca is another difficult call but if pressed for a winner I'd go for Mallorca against a side who have lost five out of six. The islanders are 19-10 at Ladbrokes.

Biggest draw price on the Serie A game between Bologna and Cagliari is 7-5 with Ladbrokes and BetVictor and that suggests to me two teams hovering just above the drop zone will play out a stalemate.



(19-10, BetVictor)

Cazorla to score

(14-5, unibet)

  1. Mr Chris Guy 12 years ago

    Scott I agree with Seville mate that’s my tip for the day. Seville to be winning in 30 mins at 7/4 with Ladbrokes

  2. Mr Chris Guy 12 years ago

    Scott with regards to the Bologna game, it may be worthwhile backing no goalscorer at 7/1 with Stan James and 1-1 at 9/2 with victor chandler.

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Chris, it certainly looks a low-scoring draw and I’ll go with Scott on this one. I’m assuming the draw price is so short because it suits both sides although there a few games still to be played. I hope there isn’t anything dodgy here but we’ll see what happens. I think I’ll go big on under 2.5 goals and react to that inrunning after the first goal (if any) is netted.

  3. Aleksandar 12 years ago

    I ll pick a winner for you Scott, what about AIK

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Aleksandar, I don’t know if Scott had looked a the Swedish league but it certainly looks a like home win against a Gothenburg side who have started badly in the past two seasons.

  4. David McLaughlin 12 years ago

    I’ve opened up an account with William Hill. When will I get my free £25 bet?

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      David, it will tell you in the t’s and c’s.

  5. Nobby 12 years ago

    Prob when u bet 25 euro first

  6. Nobby 12 years ago

    Or should I say pound “old chap”

  7. David McLaughlin 12 years ago

    Cheers m8.

  8. Mr Chris Guy 12 years ago

    Mr Fixit I don’t think Cazorla will score at anytime although he has been playing well.

    I was only going for the one tip today but due to my love of goalscorers I will choose the following.

    Narco Ruben to score at anytime at 2/1 with Vet365.

    Whatever you guys choose, Cazorla or Ruben, good luck!!

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Chris, a couple of different players could score at any time of course. Cazorla must have a chance although I noticed he missed a penalty last game so he might be off them now.

  9. Mr Chris Guy 12 years ago

    Marco Ruben 2/1 at bet365

  10. Mr Chris Guy 12 years ago

    Well it’s got to be Marco Ruben then to make it a good start to the weekend. I don’t think there will be that many goals in the game, maybe a 1-0 victory but I’m siding with the home side.

    Good luck everyone

  11. joe knotts 12 years ago

    Treble for tonight – sevilla and utrecht to win, btts in villareal game. just over 7/2

  12. Mr Chris Guy 12 years ago

    Hey Paul I was just looking at some of the betting for the weekend. I don’t want to say its a certainty to be hit with all the usual nonsense but I feel as though this price cannot be ignored.

    Real Madrid are home to Gijon. Madrid are available at 1/14 with Ladbrokes and 1/6 for ht ft.

    Bearing this in mind how do you fancy a bit of Madrid to be winning after 30 mins at 8/11? Prob the best bet you’ll come across all weekend. What a price especially with Madrid at home.

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Chris, you’ve said. It’s a great price because surely Real will roll over Sporting from the start and get at least one early goal.

  13. Badham 12 years ago

    Like I said earlier … S.Rondon to score at anytime @ 21/10 … Fingers crossed for everyone …

  14. etidorhpa 12 years ago

    0-1 Malaga, Cazorla

  15. James C 12 years ago

    Don’t like betting where I don’t have a hunch myself but Cazorla was a great shout. Well in again Scott.

    Bologna-Cagliari is currently 7/5 Draw HT/FT.

    Boring match as well.

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      James, I’m on the draw at Bologna. Everything pointed to it but we’ll see.

  16. Badham 12 years ago

    Cheers Scott! Jumped on Cazorla anytime last minute after reading this @ 3/1 paddy power …

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Guys, spoke to Scott before he posted and said he felt he might be accused of copying of Chris Guy if he took Rondon so that swayed him towards Cazorla who is in good form and was a better price.

  17. Peter Brown 12 years ago

    Great tip Scott..well in! Gone with the 3 tips n the draw so here’s hoping:)

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Peter, crazy end to Malaga game. Man sent off then concede two late goals. Thank goodness we all got on Cazorla.

  18. joe knotts 12 years ago

    My treble went down. Trying to rake a little back with den haag in play at evens with sevilla -1 at 11/10

  19. Mr Chris Guy 12 years ago

    Paul I never tipped Rondon mate. I said if I was forced to stick a scorer on it would have been Marco Euben which was still a loser I guess. My main tip remember was for seville to be winning after 30 mins at 7/4 with Lads

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Chris, sorry Scott must have got mixed up. Must have been someone else.

  20. Ross 12 years ago

    well done Scott and Paul ;)

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Cheers, I take it you backed Cazorla

  21. joe knotts 12 years ago

    My den haag and sevilla -1 dble looking good. haag 2 up and sevilla 1 up early doors just hoping they push on for more. Well done all with bets up tonight as it really was slim pickings!

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Joe, I nearly did AIK who were flagged up earlier but they conceded in injury time to draw.

  22. Steven Duncan 12 years ago

    Cagliari doing everything but score!

  23. Steven Duncan 12 years ago

    Nice little double Mallorca Seville

  24. Mr Chris Guy 12 years ago

    And there’s my Sevilla bet up, ya dancer. Hope others backed it

  25. James C 12 years ago

    That Bologna game had draw written all over it. Disappointing.

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      James, it was just maybe too obvious.

  26. joe knotts 12 years ago

    Den haag finished 3-0 and sevilla 3 up at ht. Is it too early to count my chickens ;) Forgot to mention – i use 888 regularly and have built up a bit of cash in it so i use it for bigger bets but when i went on it tonight to check for cazorla price it did neither 1st scorer or anytime scorer on la liga games. Found this odd as its a major league?

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Joe, I reckon you’re quids in. Surprised to hear that about 888sport, that’s pretty poor to be honest. No first scorers on La Liga games especially when they’re the main event tonight.

  27. joe knotts 12 years ago

    I know thought it was strange! I could bet on red cards, time of first goal, amount of goals, colour of the keepers pants etc. but no goalscorer markets!
    Incidentally i bet on white pants but was a non runner as he was going commando :0

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Joe, that’s enough of the funnies. Scott McAlpine told me he thought his lovely girlfriend Chunky (his nickname) had gone commando but it was just a full moon in the sky.

  28. joe knotts 12 years ago

    Please tell me he doesnt really have a gf. Coz the poor girl takes absolute pelters on here! Maybe shes up for a laugh? Or does going out with Scott mean u need to have a sense of humour haha.

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Joe, she’s for real all right but I’ve been assured she knows nothing about the site.

  29. Mr Chris Guy 12 years ago

    Looking at the Southampton v Reading betting tomorrow. My tips are Rickie Lambert to score first goal. He is a best price of 9/2 but make the smart choice and stick him on with Boylesports at 4/1 as they will refund your losing bet if he scores second.

    Also back Billy Sharp to score at anytime which is 15/8 with Stan James.

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Chris, myself or Scott will put something up on tonight’s game but certainly Lambert is always worthy of a mention. In my mind Sharp scores when Lambert’s not playing but I’ll need to check if that’s the case.

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Chris, by the way just wanted to say to you and everyone else that having spoken to bet365 they will price up all SFL both teams to score and have them on the site for this weekend’s matches so that’s a result.

  30. Kenny 12 years ago

    That feels like a result for us all! As long they don’t rip the arse out the prices.

  31. Matt 12 years ago

    Cheers mr chris guy took your advice on seville game but only put £40 on it got £105 back nice £65 profit for Southampton game.

  32. Mr Chris Guy 12 years ago

    No bother matt

  33. Matt 12 years ago

    Does anyone know if lamberts playing tonight or sharp or both????

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Matt, I’d expect them both to start but no confirmation of that. Lambert will play for certain and Sharp’s been in form, scoring all of Southampton’s four goals in their last two games. Scott’s working on his piece at the moment. I know that coz he asked me to check a couple of spellings (left school early I believe).

  34. Badham 12 years ago

    Should both play mate, no knocks and it’s a big game.

  35. Mr Chris Guy 12 years ago

    Ha ha lol, I’m assuming he will be backing Rickie then cos it’s a bit trickie to spell

  36. Matt 12 years ago

    Well I got £65 to spend on tonight’s game should I split the difference and put £32.50 on sharp and lambert anytime scorers????
    What you suggest guys???

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Matt, Scott’s piece will be up shortly so see what he’s tipping. Tells me he’s dug out a good scorer for tonight’s Stuttgart match.

  37. Badham 12 years ago

    Chris good tip last night by the way … Tried jumping on it but they didn’t have that market In store… Ive signed up to a bunch of different websites this morning at work and have got so many free bets it’s unreal haha. The Madrid one looks tasty!

  38. Matt 12 years ago

    Ok Paul I’ll see what Scott’s got to offer me.
    How long till he’s spell checked it all lol???

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      It’s done. Guy he couldn’t spell was Vedad Ibisevic. I’ll check him out but sounds a good one from what he says.

  39. Mr Chris Guy 12 years ago

    No bother Badham it seems a bit unreal for the Madrid game to be honest 1/14 to win In 90 mins, 1/6 for ht ft or 8/11 to be winning after 30 mins. Seems a no brainer to me and although anything can happen in football id be very surprised if it didn’t come up.
