IT looks like my Super Singles will end the month in profit but the accumulators need some serious turning round.
I said Reading were overpriced and shouldn't have been underdogs at home to Norwich so that was a nice 3.8pts profit on the SS.
On the accas I felt robbed. Fleetwood beat the Top Treble as they were held 0-0 by a Bury side who had lost 12 in a row.
And my 9-1 homes fivefold was downed at the death when Gillingham equalised at Peterborough. As I've said before – such small margins.
Maybe I should have stuck with the big guns – in my English preview I advised an Arsenal, Chelsea, Man United treble at 7-5 with Man City added to make it 2-1. But as I said savvy punters know when to back the big guns and for me it's all about finding value.
Greg picked two winners out of three and Jordan's only tip was a success. Desmond's main bet was a Doncaster goal short.
We go from a huge Boxing Day card to a much more compact one on Tuesday and I've posted a separate preview on the two Scottish games – Aberdeen v Hamilton and Hearts v Kilmarnock.
Liverpool are a best 1-3 with firms such as Marathonbet at home to Stoke in the Premier League and you have to fancy Brighton and Derby at home to QPR and Birmingham respectively in the English Championship. The double pays 9-5 at bet365.
There are a couple of games in the bottom half of the Belgium league – Genk v Gent and St Truiden v Standard Liege – but not much else to look at and while Brighton were in my thoughts I had a few things to do this morning so didn't want to put them on the top tips 10 minutes or so before kick-off. There is a preview post on the English games too.
With the Super Singles total doing well I'm taking a chance on Hearts and both to score. After starting without a win in his first three games it's time for Ian Cathro to get off the mark and this is his best chance yet.
Hearts played well for an hour at Dundee before leaking three goals from 2-0 up so while I believe they can win there is every chance they'll concede too.
My Top Treble could have been Brighton, Derby and Aberdeen but it's Derby, Aberdeen and both to score at St Truiden v Standard Liege. I'm no Belgian football expert but from what I've read goals are expected from two strugglers. St Truiden beat Gent 3-1 last time out and have netted in their last four while Standard have scored in seven of eight away matches.
