HJK HELSINKI took their time on Tuesday night but finally produced the goods to bring up my main tip.

The Finns won 2-1 in Iceland for a 9-1 aggregate success and could give Celtic a tough test in the Champions League qualifiers next week.

Tonight there are five more qualifiers with two featuring sides from Wales and Ireland. The New Saints did well to hold Helsingborgs last week but the Swedes are no bigger than 1-6 with BetVictor and bet365 to put the tie to bed in the second leg.

Helsingborgs are hardly worth backing at that price but maybe on the handicaps. I'll be on -1 at 4-7 with Paddy Power and -2 is also worth a look at 8-5 with the same firm.

Irish side Linfield are all but out after a 3-0 defeat away to AEL Limassol. The Cypriots are a decent outfit and like HJK last night I can see them notching another win at 3-5 with unibet and BetVictor.

Fifteen of Linfield's last 19 European home ties have been under 2.5 goals while AEL's last 10 domestic games have been under 2.5 so look at that bet at 1-1 with Stan James.

Dinamo Zagreb were held 1-1 by Bulgarians Ludogorets Razgrad but should win at home. They are 8-13 at bet365.

Meanwhile, GB women are 4-9 with Ladbrokes and William Hill to kick off the Olympics tonight with a win against New Zealand.


Linfield v AEL under 2.5 goals
(1-1, Stan James)

Helsinborgs -2
(8-5, Paddy Power)

    Alright Paul,do u think the Olympic football matches will b worth a look. Just noticed Spain r 4/11 just 2 beat Japan 2moro and 11/10 for -1 handicap. Don’t u think these r excellent odds?

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Jonathan, Spain should be fine I would think, might up something later or tomorrow. Backed the GB women today but with no huge confidence.

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Craig, which Celtic game do you mean?

  6. James Coyle 12 years ago

    Paul, Helsinki are 7/1 with BWin to qualify for the next round against Celtic. The same bet is only 7/4 with McBookie!!! I’m on at 7/1 but I imagine that won’t last long.

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      James, 7-4 can’t be right and 7-1 is probably too big. I’d like to think Celtic will make it through but it won’t be easy.

  7. Kenny 12 years ago

    Nice one james, i just got paid today and used it to buy a nice chunk of free money! Cheers :)

    fiver on bate zagreb wrocklaw and panathainakos for 36, cant believe panath are 10/11

  9. Mr Chris Guy 12 years ago

    Paul well done with Helsinborgs mate. I’ve stopped even trying to bet with Paddy Power now due to them restricting me. I’d end up depositing ¬£100 to put the bet on and they would give me a max bet of ¬£3.27 or something stupid like that.

    I was thinking about contacting paddy powers main man after watching undercover boss but think this will just be a waste of time. Maybe I’ll phone up and pretend I’m channel 4 just to get to speak to him.

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Chris, Helsingborgs made me sweat but go there in the end. Was on -1 and -2 but they obviously took their foot off the gas at 2-0 so was lucky they got a third. Not sure what the deal is with you and Paddy Power. Maybe we’ll find out one day. Maybe I’ll ask Paddy if he’ll give you a call.

  10. craig alves 12 years ago

    its the 1st helsingbourg paul on tues or wed

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Craig, Celtic v Helsinki is on Wednesday if that’s what you mean.

  11. Jonathan Grieve 12 years ago

    98th minute winner for Dinamo Zagreb! Had peanuts on it but still quality!

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Jonathan, a couple of late goals have helped tonight. Long may it continue.

  12. James Coyle 12 years ago

    Paddy Power are offering 6/4 Rangers to win Division 3 and the Ramsdens Cup. Lump on material if you’re a punter.

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      James, that looks a decent price. With the squad Rangers look set to have they should stroll that league but Green could lose more players if he doesn’t start selling season tickets in big numbers. The Ramsdens Cup is no cert because they will come up against some good First Division sides in one-off ties.

  13. Smiler 12 years ago

    Any tips for top 4 fin prem league , and to win promotions in championship League 1 and league 2. Cheers

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Smiler, I’ll be looking at these nearer kick-off. Don’t like to do them too early in case of big squad changes.

  14. Smiler 12 years ago

    Ok thanks for that reply nice one , do you have any good Olympic accumulators bets that I can have a look at. Keep me intrested all way through thanks s smiler
