AS you know Friday's not my best day for tipping because I'm concentrating on the weekend workload but there are some big games tonight.

First up let's look at AC Milan v Parma in Serie A and it's all about Mario Balotelli. He's been a big hit since signing from Man City with three goals in two games and is 21-20 at unibet to add to his tally in the San Siro.

AC Milan are undefeated in five while Parma haven't won in five so a home win at 8-15 with BetVictor looks on. Stephen El Shaaraway, 15 goals in 24 games, has been overshadowed by Balotelli's arrival but I'm risking him to bag the opener at 10-3 with bet365.

There's big money on Bayern Munich but I wouldn't be backing them at a best 4-9 (unibet) until I see the starting line-ups. With a 15-point lead at the top of the table there are suggestions Bayern will rest players ahead of next week's Champions League clash with Arsenal.

If Mario Mandzukic starts I'll be on him at 3-1 with unibet to score first but the safest bet could be both teams to score if Bayern are weakened – but remember they have kept five successive clean sheets.

Sevilla v Deportivo and Lille v Rennes look tough to call but there should be goals in both and they are on my line.

There is one game in the SPL with Aberdeen 4-7 favourites at Paddy Power to beat bottom dogs Dundee at home. On paper they should but both teams have netted just once in their last five league games so look at under 2.5 goals at 4-5 (various). Also the Pittodrie pitch looked like a ploughed field last weekend and that didn't help either side.

There might not be a first scorer the way they're playing but if there is it will probably be Niall McGinn (4-1, Coral). According to my friends at Oddschecker he has scored four in his last two games against the Dens men.

In League One I'm looking at draw between fading Tranmere and Shrewsbury at 11-4 with William Hill.

And remember to focus on both teams to score in the Dutch second tier – I've picked out two I like.

  1. Kane ciaputa 11 years ago

    The Den Bosch V Volendam game has been postponed tonight Mr F

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Kane, thanks, I’ve changed it anyway.

    • steve myers 11 years ago

  2. Chris Guy 11 years ago

    Paul Den Bosch game is postponed

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Chris, yeah noticed when looking for prices so have changed it. Not had a chance to look at much tonight but remember Porto stumbled last week.

  3. Chris Guy 11 years ago

    You not fancy Jackson Martinez for Porto Paul? 13/5 @ Bet365. He’s only 7/4 with hills

  4. Elliott 11 years ago

    Drogba 1st Goal tonight on his debut for Galatasaray looks a decent bet against bottom of the table team.

    £10 = £45 William Hill

    Anderlecht, Sparta Rotterdam, Helmond Sport, Braunschweig, Galatasary, FC Porto

    £10 = £90.65 with Bet Victor

  5. Danny 11 years ago

    1860 Munich
    Sparta Rotterdam

    Bayern Munich

    SINGLE – Abel Camera (Beira Mar) 2 net anytime @ 5/1

    Aberdeen – Exeter – AcMilan


  6. cheeky number 11 years ago

    mr fix, bayern have only conceded 2 in last 5 and they were both in same match, u sure about them for btts, im not for one second saying you dont know what ur talking about just curious why you have them in?

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Cheeky number, I’ve said in the piece I expect them to field a weakened team. if they do they can concede, if they go full strength then possibly not.

    • cheeky number 11 years ago

      cheers mr f, wasnt sure even with the weakend team if u could call it that but i’ll go with you on this one

      had a nightmare last night waiting on cluj to score for an 8 team btts, win some lose some, made a fair bit on the darts, did the opposite of what i predicted and came out on top

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Cheeky number, as I’ve said in the piece I’m not betting on this game until I see the teams. I’d advise others to do that if possible. However, anything I’ve read suggests they’ll play a weakened side.

  7. cheeky number 11 years ago

    btts tonight


    good luck everyone

  8. Chris Guy 11 years ago

    Just thought I’d post this on behalf of smiler Arbroath. He highlighted a bet to me last night as he knows I like to back goalscorers so if it comes in he will get the credit for it. Its for the Lille vs Rennes match. Rennes playing well at the moment in an unbeaten run of 5 and still challenging for a Europa League place. im not saying Rennes will win butbits the Rennes player Romain Alessandri i’m interested in. He has scored 3 goals in the past 5 matches. I’ve checked the price for him and I believe he is massive at 15/4 with Bet365 to score anytime. He is also 11/1 for first goal but I think I will bet on the safe side and just do anytime. Bet365 prices are way off the mark compared to other bookmakers so perhaps they are underestimating the hitman. He is as short as 13/2 for first goal with several bookies and he is as short as 7/4 to score anytime.

    15/4 is a great price, a tad short of 4/1 whilst bookies elsewhere giving less than 2/1. my advice – Get on!

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Chris, I’ve seen Rennes tipped up but it’s a tough game. Right I’m off to get a train to the Record, still waiting on my car to arrive, but it gives me an extra half hour to pick out tomorrow’s tips.

  9. flyboivince 11 years ago

    Nijmegan wins 1st half n wins d game
    sparta rothterdam over 1.5 1st half
    rnk split win

  10. Stevie H 11 years ago

    Going to choose atleast 5 games btts in the Dutch 2nd Div, hopefully as good as last weeks games. Always plenty of goals to be had :-)

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Stevie, there are usually 5 or 6 out of seven. The key is avoiding the one that doesn’t come up.

  11. Striker 11 years ago

    What happens with Bet365 when a match is postponed? I’ve got Volendum in an accumulator, all the other matches are today. Does it mean my bet will still be pending until Volendum play their game at the later time or will they void this part of it?


  12. Milesey 11 years ago

    whats your accumulator ?

    If it’s 4 games then it’ll be taken down to a treble etc… just be void, unless they play within 24 hours of when the game should have taken place.


  13. Greg Browning 11 years ago


    If your other three bets are up, just call bet365 and tell them you want to settle the bet as a game was postponed! They’ll do it there and pay it as a winner! Beats having to wait till Monday!

  14. Striker 11 years ago

    Cheers Milesey and Greg, it was part of a treble with Bayern Munich and Anderlecht, all over 1.5 team goals. I’ll wait to see the results for the Belgian and German games and then if it’s not voided, I’ll contact them.

  15. John 11 years ago

    Just checked that Alessandrini guy out, not prolific but worth a small bet, might do a double with him and Balotelli :-)

  16. Willie McGuire 11 years ago

    small stakes tonight and chasin the dream!!

    Veendam, Galatasaray, 1860 Munich, HelmondSport, Aberdeen all to win and added in overs in Wolfsburg & Nijmegen games-

    Nimes at 17/10 in the French Ligue2 – decent single bet

    Eintracht Braunschweig, Galatasaray, Veendam, Exeter – 4fold

    good luck and I look forward to seeing some of Paddy Powers dough when am collecting again in the morn ;)

  17. Danny 11 years ago

    I think rennes will be trying to hit Lille on the counter tonight with this in mind I would be more inclined to go with one of there 2 centre forwards in Mevlut Erding or Jonathan Pitroipa and for Lille possibly Kalou or Payet. In the absence of there top scorers I fancy Mcgurk to score and help his team back to the summit of league 1 and in league 2 I fancy 18 goals in 31 games man Cureton (maybe break the deadlock)

    Adam McGurk (Tranmere)
    Jamie Cureton (Exeter)
    Dimitri Payet (Lille)
    pays 96.64 to a 10er stake

  18. Don 11 years ago

    Start off today with Eintracht Braunshweig.

    Bottom v top – Away win @ 2.02!!

    Do the bookies know something we don’t?

    Probably…… ;)

  19. paul 11 years ago

    bayern 1/3
    ac milan 2/5
    porto 1/4
    galatasaray 4/9
    lille over 2.5
    £50 roll up pays £370

  20. Don 11 years ago

    1-0! :D

  21. tom mc 11 years ago

    anyone know where i can get team news (starting teams) on the Bayern match tonight. I’m presuming it’ll be relased by 6????

  22. David M 11 years ago

    Was looking at tonights game there and Rennes are 4/1 even though their sittin above Lille. Any idea why their such big odds??

  23. tom mc 11 years ago

    Thanks don

  24. Greg Browning 11 years ago

    David, Lille just hammered Lyon 3-1 away from home last time out so I’m guessing they’ve taken that into account!

  25. The UHT 11 years ago

    I’m liking your first three BTTS, Mr F, then I’ve gone for Aberdeen and Dundee to suddenly remember football is about hitting the back of a net with a ball rather than the backside of a cow with a banjo. I’ve added three of my own Dutch deluxe which all look pretty tasy – Veendam, Sparta and

  26. The UHT 11 years ago

    Helmond… I was about to say… Getting jostled on a train!
    Good luck everybody!

  27. The UHT 11 years ago

    It’s 60-1 if it comes in. Which would be nice. Nicer than getting jabbed in the ribs by city boy there, at any rate.

  28. David M 11 years ago

    Gregg cheers for that mate. I just thought 4/1 was a bit big for a decent team, even for an away.

  29. Don 11 years ago

    Keeping it simple. Trying to adopt a ‘slow and steady’ approach at the moment.

    Bayern – AC Double – Just over evens.

  30. Elliott 11 years ago

    Drogba first goal is a winner :-)

    Accumulator going well too.

    Sky Bet now offering 4.50 for Mandzukic first goal Bayern Munich. Strong side for Bayern too.

  31. Striker 11 years ago

    Wicked overhead kick gets in Bay Munich’s first goal, I need one more c’mon

  32. Smiler arbroath 11 years ago

    Chris you won’t believe it Allesandrini took a haevy challenge. 35 mins and subbed 37mins !

  33. Peter Piper 11 years ago

    I’m convinced French football is a fix, Rennes were so awful and didn’t want to score

    They must have known i needed them for my btts score the french pigs!

  34. conor 11 years ago

    get on cork city at 9/4 in play at moment be surprised if they dont win this..all over cobh

  35. Muzza 11 years ago

    Only 5 mins to go Conor – 5/1 now or 1/3 the draw…

  36. Craig alves 11 years ago

    super mario does it again :)

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Craig, think I missed a trick tonight. Backed McGinn and Mandzukic to score first once I knew he was starting. But missed Drogba as it kicked off at six and it was a toss-up between El Sharaaway and Balotelli and took the former. Could have been a spectacular Yankee or Lucky 15 but I’ll settle for a 20-1 double.

  37. Willie McGuire 11 years ago

    4 fold and single up.

    Only time a get a turn these days is when Friday night Euro games are to he had.

  38. conor 11 years ago

    typical they stuff cliftonville in the setanta and cant turn over that dire lot

  39. Guido 11 years ago

    ACM n Sevilla…double yer money sonny!! :-) Banfield on in div 2 Argentina tonite 5/4

  40. Craig alves 11 years ago

    full house on the yankee widve paid hundreds but 20/1 double no too shabby. had fiver on hereford boy at 5/1 then fiver double on Broxbourne 11/10 balotelli/milan 5/4 so gonna try teams to score 2+ the mora wi skybet, had a look and bolton millwall mkdons all evens or above

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Craig, when I look back at my intro I’m annoyed I didn’t back Balotelli. Teams to score 2+ tips will be up soon.
