AFTER all the excitement of the Leigh Griffiths phantom goal I'm not putting on any bets on until the officials pass eye tests.
The more I watch that Hibs belter being ruled out the more incredible it seems. Took me back to the time a Dundee United player smashed a ball into the net at Firhill a few years ago it hit the back stanchion and rebounded out.
A Thistle defender picked the ball up and threw it to the keeper who nonchalantly booted it upfield for the centre to be taken. All the time the ref waved played on, the goal never stood and United never got the penalty. But I think they won 4-0 and don't remember seeing the ref much after that.
What's the chances of a repeat incident tonight. It's a fairly quiet Monday ahead of some big European games and the two punters will be focusing on are Burnley v Hull and Zaragoza v Granada.
So let's start in the Championship and Hull head for Turf Moor bidding to climb in second place but needing to improve after conceding four on their last two away trips to Bolton and Crystal Palace.
Burnley are over-reliant on top scorer Charlie Austin and if thy can keep the 23-goal striker they should win. Austin has netted the only two goals Burnley have netted in five games and the home men have won just once in eight.
Steve Bruce's Hull were brilliant in beating Birmingham 5-2 at home but those losses at Bolton and Crystal Palace raise doubts about their defence.
However, up front Egyptian striker Gedo has scored five goals in five games since arriving on loan from Al Alhy and Peterborough loanee George Boyd banged in two on his debut against Brum and has since earned a Scotland call-up.
I loved the quote from Gordon Strachan when he said “Steve Bruce, Alex McLeish, Darren Ferguson and myself all think he's a player. Between us there's a boss in there somewhere”.
So for me it's a Hull win at an attractive 9-5 with Blue Square as long as Austin is subdued.
And take Scots star Boyd to score at 7-4 with Ladbrokes and William Hill, while he is 8-1 at Coral and BetVictor to net first with Gedo 6-1 at Coral, BetVictor and bet365. Austin is first-scorer favourite at 4-1 with Ladbrokes and others and the only man to back if you fancy Burnley not to lose.
The La Liga game features two struggler but Zaragoza are just one point clear of the drop zone after 10 matches without a win.
Granada are just one above their rivals having lost their last three by 2-1 – but are playing better than their results suggest.
Noticed Milesey tipping Caen to beat Istres at home in French Ligue but that games's now been postponed.
I was on a double with Caen and Dinamo Bucharest who are at home to Concordia. Dinamo have won all four since the resumption of the season and are looking a decent side who are building for next season.
Concordia haven't won any of their four and sit 10th in the Romanian table. This should be comfortable for Dinamo who are a best 9-20 at unibet.
(9-5, Blue Square)
Granada draw no bet (7.30pm)
(15-8, Paddy Power)
Dinamo Bucharest (5.30pm)
