I'VE tentatively tipped Everton to win at Southampton tonight but have no problem going with Benfica at Moreirense.

Unbeaten Benfica face a side at the bottom and with just one with this season. More tellingly they lost 5-0 at second bottom Setubal last time out.

Obviously Benfica are fairly short at a best 1-4 with William Hill and Coral but having hit 12 goals in four games they must be a look on the handicaps. You can have 7-10 minus one at boylesports and 9-5 minus two with Paddy Power.

Star striker Oscar Cardozo has signed a new contract and is 3-1 at William Hill to celebrate by scoring first. To net at any time he is 4-5 with boylesports.

There is one game in La Liga with fourth-placed Real Betis taking on relegation-threatened Athletic Bilbao. Not many people would have anticipated such standings at the start of the season but Marcelo Bielsa's side have enjoyed a terrible season and are on a run of three defeats.

They sit just three points above the drop zone and that's remarkable for a side that reached the Europa League and Spanish Cup finals last season.

Betis have made a brilliant start and have also won their last three matches against their opponents. They look a decent bet at a best 20-21 at BetVictor.

I haven't really looked at the African Nations Cup but may consider Nigeria at 4-5 with BetVictor against Burkina Faso (KO 6pm). Nigeria have sent a young squad to the tournament and it could pay off as the players look hungry and happy.

Burkina Faso are always tournament minnows and may struggle to cope with the likes of Chelsea's Victor Moses who is 6-1 at Ladbrokes and unibet to break the deadlock.


Benfica -2
(9-5, Paddy Power)

Cardozo to score first
(3-1, William Hill)

Real Betis
(20-21, BetVictor)

Moses to score first
(6-1, Ladbrokes, unibet)

    Guys have any of you ever used http://www.10bet.com?
    They have a decent promotion of a 50% match first deposit bonus up to £200. But be warned, their site is terrible!
    Not easy to navigate and it is not compatible with I-phone or I-Pad. It might work the first itme you use ti but after that it just keeps logging you out when you navigate on the site.
    Placed a bet yesterday and because i was hungover and not concentrating picked Valencia by mistake in an accumulator. Tried to call them to void it and nobody answers the phones (thought maybe because it was a Sunday but tried again this morning and still no answer)!! Also tried the live chat option on their website and again nobody responded. There was no point in emailing them because they will have a 24hr to 48hr turnaround for a response probably and i only had an hour to rectify the situation.
    Anyone else had a bad experience with them?

  11. Peter Brown 11 years ago

    5/1 @ bet 365 mate.always looks good on paper haha.worth 20 quid

  12. Seamus 11 years ago

    True that! Good luck mate. See emenike scored, boy was a handful at parkhead and in Moscow for spartak!

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Seamus, changed my bet when I saw the teams. Good goal too but surprised Moses didn’t start.

  13. Seamus 11 years ago

    Happy days. The boy is definitely a handful, tricky pacey, and strong! Seriously liked the look of him, not at the time playing against us tho! Lovely worked goal, boy timed run well and silky touch and good finish. What price were you getting on him Paul?

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Seamus, Emenike was 5-1.

    • james mccann 11 years ago

      i only got 4-1 on emenike in hills.

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      James, I noticed him at 6-1 and 11-2 earlier but was probably cut after teams were announced.

  14. Craig23_50 11 years ago

    Surely Moses must be coming on soon !!!!!!!

  15. John 11 years ago

    Gone with Lambert anytime, all these Everton bets i’m going for the Saints hitman to bag one during the game

  16. Seamus 11 years ago

    Nice one! Might look at prices on him for tournament top goal scorer.

  17. Danny 11 years ago

    thats a sore yin for emday that had nigeria on enyhow time for southampton-everton it better be a bloody good game its 4 in the am STRONG COFFEE REQUIRED

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Danny, terrible mistake to gift the equaliser in the last minute after your Bhoy Ambrose was sent off.

    • Danny 11 years ago

      was sittin wondering what the hell you were talking about Paul then noticed the spelling of Bhoy and checked the Celtic website cause I didnt even no his first name

  18. Stevie H 11 years ago

    no moses has cost a nieve Nigeria the tournement imo.

    Glad I ndver touched it. Got Fellani/Cardozo ew double on tonight

  19. Peter Brown 11 years ago

    1-0 bêtis!! Great start!

  20. Danny 11 years ago

    Im curious 2 know if the commentators are different on foxsports or are the same as on sky sports 31st minute did he make a reference too fellanis hair length in calculating his 15 million transfer fee

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Danny, watching in the office with no sound. But edition’s nearly away so turning up the volume for the second half.

  21. Flyboivince 11 years ago

    In Israel loads of match fixing occurs with top teams getting beaten by lesser teams . I never touch them living here for the past year I can tell

  22. Andy 11 years ago

    This Everton games looking like a 0-0. I’m considering watching corrie :(

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Andy, a couple of close calls but it’s been poor. Hopefully improve in the second half.

  23. Flyboivince 11 years ago

    Does anyone know why Moses dint play ?

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Flyboivince, commentator said he had a slight knock but had been expected to start. I’m sure he’ll be in next time as they missed some great chances.

  24. Seamus 11 years ago

    From a Celtic fans/selfish point of view hope Nigeria go out early doors to give ambrose back. Confident and calming influence at the back, definitely brought kelvins game a notch or two above! See work permit approved for rogic Danny, so happy days. And Danny, was a big admirer of Toby vidmar, and the aussie lad himself said it took a year to settle culture and football wise at the age of 27/8 so think Us celtic fans will need to be patient for the young Rogic to adapt/shine like you suggested bud!

  25. Seamus 11 years ago


  26. Danny 11 years ago

    thats it Seamus most people in Oz live a very sheltered live and would get one hell of shock in Glasgow more so west australians they would die off in the cold and everybody is used too space and plenty off it also very laid back 2 paces here slow n slower hes young but so might adapt quicker lol Tony Vidmar my last memory of him was in a bar in benidorm when he scored against parma in a champions league qualifier

  27. james mccann 11 years ago

    ive got a treble of first goalscorers on
    eminike won 4-1
    jelavic 5-1 doesnt look good
    cardozo 3-1
    fortune back if this comes up.would cover my last 3 months loses lol.

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      James, unlucky with that. I fancied Cardozo but he’s been beaten to it.

    • james mccann 11 years ago

      he hasnt scored for a wee while mr fixit,neither has jelavic.

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Jelavic scored against Cheltenham in the cup but had a nightmare tonight.

  28. Seamus 11 years ago

    Only oz (and that’s not ounce Danny boy) in my memory was viduka that hit off, but he was used to the European culture been at Zagreb before hand. I’m a Tim through and through, but football fan first. On that footing vidmar was superb, was a secret admirer among the jungle! The boy has time on his hands with a four year deal so here’s hoping John park has produced another gem mate

  29. james mccann 11 years ago

    jelavic ya donkey,how did he miss that.

  30. Knottsy 11 years ago

    Everton looking better this half. Took them in play @ 2/1.

  31. alex walker 11 years ago

    Thats evertons 1st back to back nil nil draws for 5yrs. Keep it up cause the reds are coming to get you!

  32. Mike 11 years ago

    Thats evertons 1st back to back nil nil draws for 5yrs. Keep it up cause the reds are coming to get you!

  33. McGart 11 years ago

    Chris guy I see 5 of the 6 opening african games have been draws. Did you have a wee bit of this? Opening games are always close as no team likes 2 lose opener. A tryed the draws at opening euros rite enuf with no luck. Gutted never had a wee shot on these matches. Maybe the last 2 games 2morow will be draws also.

  34. Westtimer 11 years ago

    FRANCE: Coupe de France

    All both team to score. The last time I had £2 bet on 7 of them to score I was waiting on a team in Portugal to score and I own £485.


    Avenir Lozere

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Westtimer, I might look at some of these. Cheers.

  35. Chris Guy 11 years ago

    Hi McGart no draws on tonight but shafted with other results. Looking ahead to tomorrows football

  36. Joe 11 years ago

    first timer, so be gentle lads,, im going through one of those barren spells just now,,,last night 3 wins= Everton, Nigeria, Betis ????
    I like the French ligue,, any tips for tonights ‘Coupe de France’…on paper it looks like 5 aways,,what about BTTS ??
    Really dont trust Villa tonight, im going for a draw.

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Joe, I don’t like betting on French football full stop although PSG did me a turn on Saturday. I might have a look at the games but tonight my focus is elsewhere. Last night both teams to score was suggested for all of the games.
