THERE are a few betting opportunities on Friday night and much of the focus will be on Wolves v Watford, live on Sky Sports 2.
Gianfranco Zola's side look a good bet for promotion and hopefully he's put out his strongest side. The only time his men have let me down recently was at Bristol City when he rested his main strikers so maybe check team news before you bet.
Zola's side, gathered mainly from on-loan Udinese and Granada players, has won 10 times away from home and head for Molineux hot favourites to bank another three points.
Wolves' results haven't improved – no wins in 12 now – under Dean Saunders but performances are reported to be better and their defence has improved. A 2-1 home defeat by Cardiff last weekend was by no means embarrassing and I can see Watford notching a similar sort of result if Zola does do his Tinkerman impression.
The other Championship game sees Derby entertain a Crystal Palace side who have been poor on their travels.
Palace still sit fourth but have lost two of their last three on the road at Sheffield Wednesday and Huddersfield. Derby have lost just twice at home – but drawn seven including their last two – and I could see another stalemate tonight at 12-5 with BetVictor and bet365.
In Italy there is a big game between Napoli and Juventus with the visitors six points clear of their hosts at the top.
It almost looks a must-win for the Naples men but they've failed to score in four games and I can't be confident about them on that basis. Juve have lost two of their last three away Serie A clashes so this one could be a draw.
Milesey pointed out earlier the goals history in the game and although 18 have been netted in the last five seasons I can't se Napoli turning it on. Amazing Napoli have hit exactly three goals in those last five matches but Juve's defence is better these days.
And as usual plenty of money will be on the Dutch Eerste both teams to score. There will be loads of goals in most but not many in one or two others – and with Dordrecht v Cambuur postponed check for other call-offs later.
Last night my double on Bruges and PAOK came in and it was a treble of you added Lens. Tonight for a treble I'd try on-form Monaco at Ajaccio and two shorties – Sparta Prague at Budejovice and Lech Poznan at home to Polonia Warsaw.
