THE Super Single got bck on track with West Ham but slipped with Stoke but I'll be hoping to land one on Saturday.

Last week just two of the nine teams on the shortlist won but it was dominated by aways on a tough card. In the end I picked Oxford – who didn't feature – and they conceded a late equaliser at Bristol Rovers.

This weekend's card doesn't look much easier with the FA Cup dominating proceedings. I've got Cardiff and Hull to win ties but much will depend on the strength of team they're fielding against Wigan and Brighton respectively.

Same goes for Sunderland v Southampton and Man City v Chelsea. So here is my shortlist of 10 and let me know what you think.

Fans of clubs featured are especially welcome to comment on my picks and remember this is my first glance at the coupon and teams are picked going by form not team news and head to heads.

Super Single shortlist


Brighton v HULL

SHEFF WED v Charlton

Man City v CHELSEA

Sunderland v SOUTHAMPTON

Bournemouth v BURNLEY

PORTSMOUTH v Wimbledon

St Mirren v ABERDEEN

    Where’s my hibs Paul? :) not even with counterfeit money! Although the positive news for hibs fans is our captain liam craig is suspended! :)

      Sparky, on current form I can’t take Hibs but Aberdeen looks a good one – but might not get evens.

      • Sparky 5 years ago

        Aberdeen been well backed Paul u won’t get evens now.

        From that list I’d take southampton. Not sure how serious sunderland will take it given their plight in the league and a trip to Wembley not that far away.

        I’d also oppose u and take morton over cowdenbeath but that would be a hunch that sooner or later shields will get them to click there more than anything.

        Disappointed with stoke outcome tonight I backed stoke at the weekend and had to back them again because they were such a big price! In the end I think the weather worked against us because it was so severe if it had just been a standard gale I reckon we’d of won! Lol!

  2. Davie-S 5 years ago

    I think you could pick your four draws from that list, some tight games i wouldn’t like to call…

  3. Bob H 5 years ago

    There’s quite a few always on the list …Spurs weren’t considered for Wednesday SS because they were away to Newcastle?

    • Author
      Mr Fixit 5 years ago

      Bob H, no I didn’t say that. I said I took Stoke ahead of Spurs because they were at home. If you read my Wednesday top tips post it will be clear.

  4. Ted 19 5 years ago

    Sheffield Wednesday for me Paul.

  5. Smfc Mark 5 years ago

    St Mirren fan here. We’re a bit of a shambles just now, looks like players have lost faith in Danny Lennon. Aberdeen will beat us comfortably.

  6. Scott 5 years ago

    I probably would leave Southampton to be honest. We have been a different team in the cups so far this season and are unbeaten in the 3 games we’ve played against Southampton so far (Drew twice in the league and beat them in the capital one cup), although they probably should have beat us in the league after being 2-0 up in the first half.

  7. Greg Browning 5 years ago

    Cowdenbeath to beat Morton Mr F? Morton have made some useful signings and this is a 6 pointer for them! Can see them getting a much needed win here with a draw at worst!

  8. Alan 5 years ago

    I like Ross county 10/3 draw no bet Will be good price also. Anyone looking for a super single for Sunday – Valencia 5/2 but not for too much longer I wouldn’t think.

  9. Steve The Pirate 5 years ago

    Garrr, I not be liking many of the choices there. Sheff Wed looks decent, while I expect Aberdeen to take care of St Mirren, but they be well below evens.

    A couple of spots from the crows nest- Motherwell at home to Thistle are 11/12, which looks staggering value. Also 11/12 are Coventry, they be hosting Bradford, who are getting washed out to sea on current form. Meanwhile Watford are performing much better recently and will fancy their chances of beating Middlesborough, who seem distinctly average just now.

    Just noticed this game be on the Sunday, but I’m mentioning them anyways, Nottingham Forest have been on great form to and are priced around 13/10 away to Sheff United, a team struggling in the league below them.

  10. since1902 5 years ago

    Motherwell minus 1 v Partick on sat is decent bet at 11/5 for a SS. I’m sure well hammered partick recently.

  11. JKC 5 years ago

    I’m trying too pick 4 draws the last 3 months and just can’t pick them .. Any1 have any teams that they think will draw over the weekend ??

  12. maxclover 5 years ago

    Southhampton, Southhampton, Southhampton, Southhampton annnnd Southhampton

    • Phil 5 years ago

      Why Southampton ?? Sunderland been very good at home in the cups this season

      • Author
        Mr Fixit 5 years ago

        Phil, depends if Sunderland put out a full team. They need league points more than Southampton do. With every FA Cup tie team news will be key.

        • Phil 5 years ago

          looks like being a near full strength 11 for Sunderland with Giaccherini and Scocco getting starts and after last nights postponement its probably gonna be even stronger.

  13. robert miller 5 years ago

    strong notion on MORTON Paul…… good point away to Falkirk last week and I keep expecting them to kick on with Shiels in charge………. I realise Cowden have won their last 2……….

  14. phil 72 5 years ago

    Not sure about a lot of those picks MR F
    Usually one top team gets beat by the underdogs and it could be cardiff
    Iwill be doing alot of double chance on the cup games backing the outsiders still get about 7/10
    The only one I really like is BURNLEY

    • Author
      Mr Fixit 5 years ago

      phil 72, it’s just a shortlist from a difficult card. I’ve said the FA Cup games will depend on team news. Southampton are making noises about fancying a tilt at the FA Cup while Sunderland shouldn’t be too bothered so that might be a good one.

  15. phil 72 5 years ago

    COVENTRY looks good to me aswell STEVE

  16. robbo 5 years ago

    Sheff weds for me, Charlton are a poor poor side, new owner bringing in players from abroad that chris Powell is being forced to play after selling their best two players to Brighton and Bournemouth in the transfer window

  17. Chappers 5 years ago

    Very tough card for Saturday, extremely low stakes would be my advise looking at that list.

  18. alva glen 5 years ago

    QOS look value at home v Dundee 9/5.Preston to beat Orient 5/4.Aberdeen are a best 3/4 so will stick them in my acca.

  19. Steve 5 years ago

    I’m going for Wigan and Brighton upset in FA cup as a double for me 7/1 bet365 I fancy notts forest as my SS 13/10 at sheff utd

  20. craigyboy 5 years ago

    On first skim through the oddschecker list my picks would be:

    IPSWICH v Blackpool
    MK DONS v Oldham
    PRESTON v Leyton Orient

    Some very tough games to call this weekend. Sheffield Wednesday look great odds for a home tie against a poor Charlton team…With FA Cup though you just never know.

  21. Steve 5 years ago

    My Saturday SS is port vale away at Shrewsbury 13/8 bet365, putting them in a double too with Preston home to woeful Leyton orient 5/1 bet365

  22. Tony 5 years ago

    People remember the weather is shocking up an down the country. In my opinion it will give us alot of unexpected results.

  23. Tony 5 years ago

    Only 2 a would maybe consider on this list is sheff wed, aberdeen

  24. Bam 5 years ago

    Aberdeen r burnley

  25. slasherjack 5 years ago

    Im a Man City fan and i wouldnt bet on our match until you see what team both clubs will be putting out. If we have Yaya and Fernandiho in midfield i would back us to beat anyone at home including Barca.

  26. Troy 5 years ago

    Mr F – We need an ‘oor man in Germany’ and a ‘oor an in Holland’………The bookies are extremely cautious on the btts and win market in these countries but reasonably on the win only market! Evidently there must be more goals in these leagues but maybe you should look abroad for a SUPER SINGLE whilst the weather is like this in the UK!

    Port Vale away to Shrewsbury
    Millwall at home to Bolton
    Burnley away to Bournemouth
    Waalwijk at home to NEC

      Troy, absolutely – the more the better. And yes I will have a look at the European card before making my pick.

  27. Hughie 5 years ago

    Paul not sure about Cowdenbeath although they are doing well lately. Morton have also picked up recently .
    This is a crunch game for Morton and and a defeat will almost kill chances of staying up for that reason my gut feeling is at very least a draw for Morton although I will be going for a home win
    This is just my feeling and not a tip good luck all with your bets

    • Author
      Mr Fixit 5 years ago

      Hughie, I’m not sure about Cowdenbeath either – it’s just a list. Put up for a bit of debate more than anything and good to hear opinions.

  28. John Boy 5 years ago

    Cardiff at best are a Championship side who Wigan would like to swap leagues with. Think Wigan will want to prove a point in this match.
    X2 Wigan.

  29. Troy 5 years ago

    Paul – Scrub Waalwijk from that list. Up to six players out injured.

  30. MiniDuffman 5 years ago

    My last comment didn’t post for some reason.

    Not writing it all out again, but Alfreton Town look a good shout on Saturday – Bet365 go 11/8 for the win. I’ll be taking the Win and BTTS at coral at 7/2.

  31. lee cunliffe 5 years ago

    I just finished my weekend predictions, Sheff Wed, Burnley and Aberdeen match up with the list, especially like Aberdeen but playing away from home and being the early game could be off putting. Birmingham 5/4 at home to Huddersfield, Oxford home to Mansfield evs and Lincoln home to Kidderminster 6/4 are 3 that stand out for me

  32. lee cunliffe 5 years ago

    a match result & bts treble that looks interesting

    Luton win BTS vs Hereford
    Nuneaton win bts vs Hyde
    Gateshead win BTS vs Woking

    pays 33/1

  33. robert miller 5 years ago

    walked into Hills to take the coupon price 13/10 on MORTON and said to the guy any price change??? told now EVENS…. ABOUT TURN!!!!!!!!

    • Author
      Mr Fixit 5 years ago

      Robert, that’s early and by no means are Morton a banker. Cowdenbeath are capable of winning there.

  34. murph 5 years ago

    I like Dunfirmline at Forfar. In fact I reckon on btts as well.. Goals are common in this league.

  35. Sham 5 years ago

    Preston to beat leyton orient 11/10 is worth looking at, orient have lost ther last three games and Preston appear to be improving at home.

  36. Garath 5 years ago

    The games at or above evens I’m on this weekend are –
    Sheff wed 1/1
    Doncaster 5/4
    Burnley 5/4
    Millwall 11/8
    Preston 6/5

    So two from your list at the top, I have taken Cardiff but they were only 10/11

  37. John Bryan 5 years ago

    Gotta be Burnley on their roll.

  38. Jman 5 years ago

    Preston are 5/4 at home to the shocking Orient, phenomenal price!

  39. Jman 5 years ago

    That’s with Hills, fire in before the inevitable cut.

  40. Sean 5 years ago

    Litle surprised you have Southampton hilighted as a super single choice away to Sunderland Mr F,i was thinking the reverse and these are my reasons:
    Sunderland have already proven themselves in cup games this season having knocked Mn utd and Chelsea out of the capital one cup,its true that the saints are unbeaten in 8 all comps but when you see the only teams they beat on that run are hull,fulham and west brom in the lg and yeovil and burnley in cup games you can see why they have a run going.Before sunderlands latest defeat against hull which can be put down to the fact that wes brown got himself sent off in the 4th minute they had only lost once in 13 games all comps,like i said beating chelsea and united in the cups and winning away to everton and newcastle in the league.
    Last meeting between the two was a 2-2 draw but the saints took a 2-0 lead in that game but sunderland showed great fighting spirit to come back and level the game its that kind of spirit which is needed in cup games,Southampton also played midweek giving sunderland an extra 3 dys to prepare for this game which is an early kick off 12.45 saturday which may prove significant,these are the reasons i think Sunderland are a great price worth backing at 23/10 or taking the sunderland draw no bet at 11/8 which is stilla lot better than the odds for a southampton win @ 6/5.

      Sean, it’s just a shortlist – anyway have already said it depends on team news. Will Sunderland play a full-strength side?

  41. Derek Swanson 5 years ago

    I would say Aberdeen look the best out that lot but think you ll struggle to get Evs or better , also like the look of Southampton , agree with alot of comments over Ciwdenbeath , can see Morton winning this one , I think Cowdenbeaths mentality will be a point is good and that’s a dangerous mindset to go into a game with .

  42. Baldy45 5 years ago

    Motherwell look an outstanding bet at 5/6 at home to Thistle. The Well players have had a nice break so should be fresh and injury free to take on a struggling Thistle side. Well destroyed them 5-1 at Firhill already, so this looks a home banker to me. Super Single ??

  43. Ritchie 5 years ago

    Wolves -1 11/8 & Sundays SS Sturridge to score for Liverpool 2/1 G`luck.

  44. craigyboy 5 years ago

    Over 1.5 team goals
    Haven’t hit this for a couple of weeks.

    Wolves over 1.5 team goals
    Rotherham over 1.5 team goals
    Ipswich over 1.5 team goals
    Sheff Wed over 1.5 team goals

    returns 9/1 on Bet 365
