WITH five to follow not being particularly successful so far I'm trying a slighty different tact.
So today it's five (aways) to follow and I've mainly been inspired from backing four in the SPL last week – Killie, Motherwell, Hearts and Celtic.
The top five have amassed an amazing 23 wins between them and if the trend continues there should be successes today for Killie, Inverness, Hearts and possibly Motherwell.
Killie are generally available at 3-1 so it's a brave bet for anyone who fancies them at Dundee United.
I'm instead starting my five to follow with Hearts who are chasing a third win in a row after superb victories over Hibs last weekend and Celtic in midweek.
The Jambos are flying and striker Kevin Kyle will have been lifted by his Scotland recall. In contrast opponents St Johnstone are in a rut after conceding 13 goals in four games.
Next I'm on an Inverness side who are unbeaten away from home in a year. It's a great achievement by Terry Butcher's men who were the first team this season to take points off Rangers and in midweek went to Aberdeen and beat a side who were desperate to do well for under-fire boss Mark McGhee.
Inverness have won four and draw two away on their return to the top flight and worth a look at a best 7-4 with McBookie.com.
I'm tempted by Killie but it might be safer taking them on the draw no bet market so instead I'll head for the English Championship where Cardiff look worth supporting.
The Welsh promotion chasers travel to a Scunthorpe side that has conceded nine goals in consecutive away defeats to Middlesbrough, Leeds and Doncaster. Cardiff are better than those three and will expect to pick up the points having already picked up five wins on the road. Dave Jones' men are 21-10 with William Hill and Chandler.
Next it's got to be Brighton who have carved out an eight-point lead at the top of the Championship after four wins in a row without conceding a goal. They include a 3-0 success at Peterborough and 4-0 rout of Charlton so struggling Hartlepool, who have conceded 17 goals at home – the most in Britain – should be worried. Brighton are 23-20 with William Hill.
Finally, I'm looking at one of my favourite lower-league sides Crewe. They are always good to watch and will be looking forward to a visit to a Gillingham side who are missing up to 13 players through injury and suspension.
The Gills are in a mess and last week's home defeat to tiny Dover didn't surprise many. Morale is at a low and Crewe, who always seem to be involved in exciting games, should take advantage. Crewe are 2-1 with Ladbrokes and Chandler.
