I HAD five tips up on one game on Monday – so surely I can pick five from the whole coupon.
Cardiff's win at Leeds proved the most profitable match of the season for me and I can't resist the Welsh fliers today. On Monday I tipped Cardiff (8-5), Cardiff minus one (5-1), Cardiff minus two (16-1), Jay Bothroyd to score first (15-2) and over 2.5 goals (evens).
One bookie told me Cardiff's 4-0 victory was their worst result of the season so plenty of people obviously followed my advice.
Leeds were dreadful that night and Dave Jones' side could have racked up any number after taking their foot of the gas with 30 minutes go.
Admittedly, it will be much tougher today with Paul Lambert's Norwich the visitors to Wales. And the key could be the fitness of skipper Craig Bellamy. The striker is expected to start but is a slight doubt.
Cardiff have won five out of five with Bellers in the line-up so underestimate his value but with the likes of Bothroyd, Michael Chopra, Peter Whittingham and Chris Burke this is an outfit with pelnty of firepower.
I'm staying in the Championship for my second pick Portsmouth. The south-coast side have kept their focus magnificently to win five out of six while threatened with closure.That threat has now been lifted and there should be a party atmosphere at Fratton Park for the visit of Nottingham Forest.
Pompey are 7-5 with William Hill and Chandler to win and should do so against an outfit whose away form stopped them from being promoted last season.
Having witnessed Leeds' collapse on Monday I've got to back against them. It will be some turnaround if they go to Scunthorpe and win and I can't see it. Scunny are always strong at home and come into the game in decent shape after victories at Watford and Preston. Leeds looked all over the place and have now conceded 15 goals in four games. Back Scunny at 7-4 with Chandler.
Now it's up to Scotland where Motherwell are improving by the week. Craig Brown's side are up to third in the SPL and have reached the last four of the Co-op Cup. They've just recorded two wins in four days against a Dundee United side who had been unbeaten against anyone outside of the Old Firm for 19 months.
My only concern today is they are involved in a derby with Lanarkshire rivals Hamilton. It will be fiercely fought but Well look to have the upperhand in quality thanks to the likes of Nick Blackman, Chris Humphrey and Jamie Murphy. Take them at 3-4 with Chandler.
Finally, it's down to the Third Division where Berwick should have too much firepower for a young Queen's Park side. Promotion-chasing Rangers are unbeaten at home while the Spiders are trying to recover from the shock of losing to junior outfit Bo'ness in the Scotish Cup last week. Berwick are 8-11 with 888sport and bet365.
