THIS should have been my last trip to Belarus but the Bundesliga's plans to kick off next weekend have been delayed by at least a week.

Tips from Belarus have been hit and miss and again I'd advise punters to check out the card markets.

Or better still check out Greg's tips – he had more success on Friday and his studying is paying dividends.

The only problem with match bookings is bookies are aware of the indiscipline and you need six or seven cards to make decent money.

There are three games on Saturday starting with FC Minsk vs Torpedo Zhodino at 12 noon. The teams lying third and sixth are evenly matched and a draw pays 19-10 at bet365. This has been the outcome in seven of the last 10 meetings between the sides.

Minsk and Torpedo are two of the better behaved sides but the same can't be said for Rukh Brest who entertain Gorodeya at 2pm.

Rukh have collected 21 yellows and two reds in six games while their opponents are the cleanest team in the league. Take Rukh to have over 30 bookings points at evens with Sky Bet and more points than Gorodeya at 15-8.

There could be plenty of cards but goals could be at a premium. Just four goals have been netted in total in Ruh’s six league games while all six of the visitors’ matches have gone under 2.5 goals. That pays 5-11 at sportingbet.

The final game could be the best as Dinamo Minsk welcome leaders Slutsk. Both teams have found the net in five of Slutsk’s six league games while Minsk are second highest scorers behind their visitors. Back btts at evens with bet365.

Bets to Consider

  • Rukh most bookings points (2pm)
  • (15-8, Sky Bet)
  • Dinamo Minsk vs Slutsk btts (4pm)
  • (Evens, bet365)

It's another week and another attempt at hitting the pools jackpot. Our fate lies in the hands of the Pools Panel and it's tough working out how they will play it.

Some predictions are puzzling but then again that's what happens in real life.

Saturday's choices are by using lucky numbers, birthdays, etc in the same way as they lottery is played. Perm eight from 10 at low stakes. You can bet online before 1.54pm.

Leagues Tipped:
  1. elvis parsley 4 years ago

    Taiwan women’s league.
    3-00 am kick off.
    New Taipei Hang Yuen Women v Taichung Blue Whale Women.

    New Taipei Hang Yuen Women to score EVENS (bethard).

    Belarus premier league.
    Dynamo Minsk v slutsk.

    I have bet 150% or 1.5 points stake on slutsk to score at 4-6 (skybet) NAP.

    Historically they don’t score many but this season has been different and sit top at the moment.
    I don’t think they are the best team in the league by any means (they are 4-1 to win today !!) but hopefully they can keep the scoring run going.

    This is too short for most so choose skybets btts at 19-20 if you seek more value.
    Long shot for small stakes.
    Belarus 1st league.
    Arsenal Dzerzhinsk v Khimik Svetlogorsk

    Khimik Svetlogorsk to score over 0.5 goals (a goal) 6-4 (bethard).

    • elvis parsley 4 years ago

      11-30 ko the last one.
      This might need an own goal or penalty to land 🤔

  2. chumpchange 4 years ago

    Rukh Brest most booking points looks a solid bet Mr F.
    Digging into the 6 games played so far and Brest have recorded the highest number of cards against each of their opponents whilst Gorodeya have had the least in all their 6 matches. The odds on offer are very generous.

    Bookies very aware of the cards scenario in Belarus and also very quick to slash prices on them, punters must be piling in. One of Greg’s tips for weds was posted on Tuesday at 4/5 and was 1/2 an hour before ko, today rukh are now evens for most cards from the 15/8 you’ve quoted mr f. Looks like if your gonna follow these bets then don’t hang about at all get on immediately. Good luck.

    Arsenal Dzyarzhynsk vs Khimik Svetlogorsk

    Arsenal are heavy favourites (only time I’ll type that) but I feel the away team can nick a goal here. They are yet to score in the first 2 games losing 4-0 and 5-0 but Arsenal have conceded in both of their matches

    Khimik to score 6/4

    Dinamo Minsk vs Slutsk
    Both of these teams matches rack up cards. Minsk’s last 5 matches have seen 7,6,8,2 & 10 cards. Slutsk’s last 5 have seen 8,8,5,6 & 7 cards.

    6 or more cards 8/11
    A red card 15/8

    Thanx mr Fixit for the pools picks

  9. old al 4 years ago

    Learnt a lesson yesterday, had Energetyk over 3 cards with William Hill, they count two yellows and a red to the same player as two cards so was a looser, the same bet with Skybet would have won at the same price, worst of it was I only went to Hills to try and spread my bets around the companies as a bit of a good will gesture, fortunately followed Greg on Sky so broke even but would have been a good win had I stayed with Sky. Moral of the story is read the small print.

    • old al 4 years ago

      On the total booking points two yellows and a red to the same player is counted as 35 points (on William Hill) hence I mistakenly presumed it would be the same.

    • 4 years ago

      Yep always read terms,unfortunate old al

    • Alves 4 years ago

      Aye av been sting wi that before aswell, they count the actual total cards in a game where 365/Skybet do BP’s. Better odds at WH but that’s the risk you take for few extra ££’s

    • kf 4 years ago

      Hi Al, glad at least you didn’t lose with this issue….yesterday, I took Energetik 30+BP and 40+BP with Skybet, both of which won. So just for my own understanding, what was the actual final BP total for Energetik?

    • buzzer 4 years ago

      Energetik booking points would have been 45

    • kf 4 years ago

      Cheers Buzzer…So is it 10pts for each yellow and 15pts for the red?

    • old al 4 years ago

      For the match corners they count points the same as many others i.e. two yellows and a red to one player is 35points but for team corners they count cards and two yellows and a red is two cards – I do feel conned a little bit but as has been said ‘read the rules’. At least I’m aware of it now.

  11. GregBrowning 4 years ago

    🇧🇾 FC Minsk vs Torpedo 🇧🇾

    The home side have delivered 35 team corners in their 6 matches this season ( avg 5.8 team corner per game).

    They’ve hit 5+ corners in 4 of their 6 games (8/4/10/7/5/1) and what stands out is Torpedo’s lack of corners.

    The visitors have delivered just 17 team corners this season (2.8 per game) which is the second lowest in the league.

    With home advantage, Minsk are more than capable of delivering 5+ corners here and there are a couple of different angles to take in this match. Minsk most corners appeals at 4/6 especially given how corner shy Torpedo are but I’m going to take Minsk 5+ team corners at 1/2 and doubling this with BATE Borisov on Sunday to hit 6+ team corners.

    Minsk also worth taking on the corner handicap. With Torpedo the away side and having delivered 3 or less corners in 4 of their games. Minsk can hit at least 2 more.

    Recommended Bets:

    🔸FC Minsk 5+ team corners
    🔸BATE Borisov 6+ team corners ( Sun)
    🔹7/5 Double (Skybet)

    🔸FC Minsk -1 corner
    🔹1/1 (Skybet)

    🇧🇾Dinamo Minsk vs Slutsk 🇧🇾

    Like yesterday’s match at Smolevichi, this looks like another strong candidate for cards given the sides involved and the fact we have a card happy referee taking charge.

    Slutsk have the 3rd worst disciplinary record in the league (I like to say 3rd best) having picked up 20 🟨 and 2 🟥 in their opening 6 games.

    They are averaging 4 team card per match having picked up 3/4/2/3/6/4 and have delivered 3+ team cards in 5 of their 6 matches.

    They have hit 8 cards in their two away games and they are big outsiders at 9/2 to get a result which I must admit is surprising given they top the table with 13 points.

    The referee in charge of this one is Sergy Stetsurin and he is not shy in dishing out the cards. Incredibly he’s shown 33 🟨 and 2 🟥 from his 6 matches this season, averaging over 6 cards per game.

    Again, Slutsk look appealing to land most card at 4/6 but I’m happy to take Slutsk 3+ team cards at 4/9 and I’ll be doubling that up with the Belshina v Dinamo Brest match on Sunday to hit 9+ match corners.

    Both Slutsk and Dinamo Minsk have seen 2 red cards this season and with card happy Stetsurin the man in the middle, a red card is worth backing.

    Recommended Bets:

    🔸Slutsk 3+ team cards
    🔸Belshina v Dinamo Brest 9+ corners (Sun)
    🔹11/10 double (Skybet)

    🔸Dinamo Misnk v Slutsk Res card for be shown
    🔹47/20 (Mr Green)

    Today would have been my team’s last home game of the season against Barnsley and our last ever at Griffin park with no football set to be played with fans until next season and our move to the community stadium at Kew bridge we won’t get to hold a proper farewell send-off of the old ground which is very sad…

    • maccathered 4 years ago

      It is sad but there won’t be fans at football for at least two years.

      Considering Boris Johnson wants everyone to return to work the day after the late bank holiday (26th may) i think two years is very harsh 12-18 months before fans can get back in is more likely

  48. Rutherglen 4 years ago

    I can now confirm after getting access via laptop that bet fred have like bet victor settled SPFL wagers as league positions stood when 3 Scottish leagues were abandoned. Not void.
    So to remind you winners declared Dundee United, Raith Rovers and Cove Rangers, this is extremely tough on those who bet Falkirk to win outright, but that’s how it goes with gambling, I really thought all bookies would have stood together as an industry on this, I had expected them to declare all SPFL bets void and return All stakes, but there must be a profit for them (bet fred and bet victor) to settle in this manner,

    • Mr Fixit 4 years ago

      Couple of points. Bookies can’t go against their rules so the decision can’t be taken on a financial basis.
      They can of course play by their rules and make goodwill gestures.
      Finally, bookies are rivals so have their own rules – and that’s what sometimes gets them customers.
      It would be easier for punters if they had the same rules but it’s never going to happen.
