I'VE already flagged up Stevenage as my Super Single – and if it doesn't come in direct all your complaints at Milesey.

They look a good thing at Bury with Dani Lopez back at the side and last weekend's win takes the heat off under-fire boss Gary Smith.

It's not the easiest night looking at the English card so don't go daft with the stakes.

My top treble will start with revitalised Wimbledon at Accrington. Just five points seperate bottom dogs Stanley from seventh bottom AFC so it's a massive game. But Wimbledon have picked up at the right time and three wins in a row have them moving in the right direction.

Stanley beat fellow strugglers Barnet at the weekend and a win could move them up five places but AFC have lost just one in eight and are playing much better than their league position suggests. They are 13-8 at Titanbet.

Add Yeovil at home to Swindon in a huge game in League One. Yeovil have drawn their last two but welcome back influential skipper Jamie McAllister for the visit of a side stumbling through crisis after crisis.

With no money and Paolo di Canio departed Swindon have done well to stay in the play-off hunt but one win in eight suggests a tough night at a Yeovil side who seem to raise their game against better teams.

It's a never a banker in a million years but I'm willing to take a chance on Yeovil at 19-10 with TitanBet.

Complete the treble in the Blue Square Premier with on-form Braintree at home to Woking. Braintree have climbed away from the relegation zone with four wins in a row – three of them by two goals – and are 11-10 with Titanbet to keep the run going.

Woking's only win in five was last time out against bottom of the league Telford so this should be a home win. It's a no-brainer!

My English both teams to score came up at the weekend and I'm looking at another treble tonight. Start with Crewe v MK Dons, two sides in good scoring form and who played out a 2-2 in this fixture last season.

Add Newport v Kidderminster in the Conference. Both sides have seen goals galore in four of their last five and Kidderminster won the earlier meeting 3-2.

Make it a treble with Albion Rovers v East Fife as long it beats the weather. Rovers' last six league games have produced an incredible 34 goals including a 4-3, 2-4 and 2-5. East Fife have seen both net in five of their last six and they won 3-0 on their last visit to Cliftonhill.

I've tipped Dani Lopez, six goals in two games, to net for Stevenage at Bury and if you fancy a double add Paddy Madden for Yeovil – it pays just over 6-1 at bet365. Fourteen-goal Madden ended a run of three games without a goal with one in the draw at Crawley last time out.

  2. steven 11 years ago

    thats funny i backed a treble last night, yeovil who r risky but they have beaten better teams convincingly at home, braintree have a good record via there opponents and r in form, and the sausage men sassuolo also have good h2h with juve stabia, 150 off a tener is fair

  3. Mr H 11 years ago

    Steven that’s a good treble with a better than average chance of coming up trumps. I’d be more than happy too have Yeovil as my trickiest selection tonight. Best of luck sir

  4. steven 11 years ago

    swindon have been branded by some as away day masters, but the loss of di canio n influential skipper caddis must weaken them, im happy to take them on, yeovil r far more settled and have been very kind 2 me bar saturdays result in a game they switched off havin been 2-0HT, crawley had no shots 1st half.

  5. steven 11 years ago

    BTTS bradford vs wycombe, wrexham vs mahsfield, cesena vs livorno, modena vs empoli, i seen cowd vs partick priced at 8/11 i almost jizzed in my pants, but then realised the game was off :( as for ural i see them winning 1-0, gonna wait for them in play n c if there as dominant as people r suggesting, lookin forward to tipping for real next week :D

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Bixie, welcome to the madhouse. Always good to get tips from far-flung games. Zamalek have been tipped by a few and of course we’re looking at Ural and Lopez. I’ll keep an eye out on Greece and watch out for next Bounty Punter because he should be right up your street.

    Ural (winning 1-0)

    All tips from above. Worked for me yesterday :-)

  17. steven 11 years ago

    ural win 1-0 as advised 7/1 i got

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Steven, good to see Ural win. Wasn’t my tip but I backed it because the reasoning was sound. Cheers to everyone who suggested them.

  18. Burger 11 years ago

    I’m looking at Sligo as my main bet away to Dundalk. Sligo are favourites to win the league again and have started the season well with a 1-0 away win to Derry and a 3-0 home win against a decent Bray side to leave them top of the table at this early stage.

    Dundalk haven’t been too shabby themselves as they held Shamrock Rovers to a draw at home and beaten a poor looking Shelbourne outfit, but aren’t overly fancied this year to do much.

    I think this game will show the class of this Sligo side once again and they should win, possibly -1.

  19. bixie 11 years ago

    ural scrape home 0-1 with a penalty, but it’s always good to get that risky early ko out of the way! 3/4 good price too.

  20. Danny 11 years ago

    Tamworth and the Conference leading goalscorer Adam Cummington has hit 18 goals this season and he should score again tonight he has broke the deadlock in 11 matches the season and may well do so again this evening hes 9/2 at bet365 same firm 6/5 anytime

    Macclesfield hitman Barnes Homer is short @ 3/1 bet365 to break the deadlock against rock bottom Telford but should do so for the 11th time this season poxy 4/5 anytime same firm.

    with 1st vs 2nd postponed the main game is 3rd away to 4th both teams have the joint 2nd top scorer in the leagues this makes it difficult to call who will open the scoring Harriers Michael gash will look to do it for the 11th time tonight @ 6/1 bet365 or 7/4 anytime same firm or the home team could come out flying with Aaron OConnor looking to open the scoring for the 8th time this season @ 9/2 bet365 or 6/5 anytime

  23. Peter Brown 11 years ago

    Paul if u had to pick a 4th Btts game who would it be?

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Peter, I wasn’t thinking about picking four because I’ve decided trebles is the way to go. If you need a fourth possibly the Yeovil-Swindon game, maybe Bradford v Wycombe or even Tamworth-Southport.

  24. Sean Ireland 11 years ago

    Tonights betting options look terrible,no point betting for bettings sake,id have a better chance predicting how many flies land on a fresh pile of dog sh*t over a 90 min period than picking winners out of tonights list.

    Sean there’s some nice bets out there today if you look in the right places though i agree that the UK market is limited tonight

  40. alex walker 11 years ago

    Maybe gettin ahead of myself. But a nice double for fridays internationals. Bale to score anytime 5to4 and sweden-1 11to8.

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Alex, Bale against the mighty Scotland? Don’t think so. Mark McGhee has hatched a plan to stop him – I hope it involves handcuffs and hideouts.

  41. Badham 11 years ago

    Took my time but finally decided! one bet for me tonight! Here’s the reasoning.

    Martin Allen takes his table toppers to Rochdale tommorow night hoping to extend their lead at the top of the league to 7 points. Gillingham are excellent away from home with their last loss on their travels coming way back in October. They will use this to bridge the gap between themselves and the rest of the pack as they could be seen as promoted if they win this game.

    Rochdale, a team I backed against and previewed in their defeat at Bristol Rovers on Saturday are still not playing well under new manager Keith Hill. It has not been a rosey homecoming for the man who got Dale promoted from this division 2 seasons ago. Rochdale have 1 win in 5 and nothing seems to be going right for them at the moment.

  51. Lamby 11 years ago

    My bets are looking shocking at the moment.

  52. AL (Phd) 11 years ago

    Wimbledon 3-0 Down & Chesterfield 2-0 down already, bet looks dead after half an hour.

    Only other bet is the BTS treble with Southend v Plymouth thrown in

  53. Guido 11 years ago

    A few of the lads vent their displeasure at a perceived negative return for their investment in AFC Wimbledon to beat Accrington tonite on the advice on “some eejit” :-)

  54. Jez 11 years ago

    Nice one Paul (Mr. Fixit), your BTTS treble comes in before half-time. Well done sir ;)

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Ok, just back from the pub. Good to see btts up and trebles definitely the way to go.

  55. AL (Phd) 11 years ago

    BTS treble up before half time! Shame I got greedy & added Southend v Plymouth to it, 0-0 in that game!

  56. murflufc 11 years ago

    well done btts before half time,lovely stuff

  57. Greg Browning 11 years ago

    Wow, know I know why I only keep stakes on teams to win accumulators to a low!

    My Modena v Empoli tips make me realise why I should stick with singles:

    Over 2.5 goals
    Over 3.5 goals
    Empoli to score 2 or more

    1-2 at half time :)

  58. weordie 11 years ago

    ugh I should have followed your BTTS instead of another persons. your’s is up by HT and the other still has 4 needed with 2 in the same game

  59. Mr Fixit 11 years ago

    Weordie, yeah he’s history.

  60. Mr Fixit 11 years ago

    Sean, plenty of people tipped up Wimbledon – and why not. On paper they looked a good bet.

    • Sean Ireland 11 years ago

      Was an underhand dig at myself,it was me that had bigged them up late last night on your other footy thread for today.

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Sean, a lot of fancied sides lost. I try not to look at the Racing Post too early in the day so I can’t even think about copying them but I see their tip of the day was Yeovil and ex-player Mark Langdon, who is a good tipster and knows his stuff, has gone for Hartlepool, Chesterfield and Stevenage so sometimes results simply go against you. Their big Euro tip was Livorno who drew and were never mentioned here by anyone. I’m not having a go at the Post because it’s a paper I respect, just pointing out how difficult it was for anyone to pick a winner tonight.

  61. Matchloz 11 years ago

    Mr fix if u gowinning again with your btts treble. Wimbledon shocking though, braintree losing too. Got a fiver still on stevenage so maybe!!

  62. weordie 11 years ago

    I know it’s mainly football on here but I leave that to you guys since I suck at football betting, hope you don’t mind me sharing my NBA picks because I usually do ok with those (about a 75% win rate this season) and some might be that way inclined.

    Tonight I’m going with Portland +5 and LA Clippers -9

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Weordie, we’ve had some NBA tips up in the past. Don’t see anyone arguing with a 75 per cent success rate.

  63. Badham 11 years ago

    If Gillingham come up for me Weordie I might have a little dabble and blindly take ur word. No work tmo!

  64. Peter Brown 11 years ago

    Am waiting on Wycombe to score for my 4 fold 3 of which where mr fix its!! C’mon Wycombe!

  65. weordie 11 years ago

    Badham I like Portland +5 because Milwaukee had to come from behind to beat Orlando Magic in a tough game, but Orlando are not a very good team and have pretty much phoned in the season to date. Portland are not great either but have beat some very good teams such as the San Antonio Spurs, whome many have tipped to be the team to end Miami’s win streak.

    LA Clippers -9 is a purely gut feeling. I think they are a good shout to go far in the play-offs and with Chris Paul pulling the strings I expect them to dominate Sacramento tonight. Sacramento have been a little hit and miss, destroying the Bulls but losing to Golden State, Milwaukee and the LA Lakers, who are all inferior teams to the Clippers.

    I hope they come in for you ;-)

  66. Mike Jackson 11 years ago

  69. Guido 11 years ago

    Yeovil n Stevenage join the Watford club :-(

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Guido, to be honest I had a bad feeling about tonight and did warn punters to play with lows stakes. Midweek npower betting is not for the fainthearted. At least the btts treble came up though. Maybe we should bet on sides we’ve never heard of.

    • Rick 11 years ago

      I don’t particularly like betting on teams in the English league system for the reasons we saw tonight. Betting on goals, btts seems to be a better option. Played it sensible on the bets tonight and only lost a very small amount thanks to your BTTS treble, nice one Mr. F :D

      Still gutted that Bucharesti couldn’t give me that 200/1 fivefold last night but still made a nice profit yesterday. Roll on tomorrow!

    • Guido 11 years ago

      It had a Watford feel to it Paul. Aways are never a guarantee. Widna thot anyone wid have lost their hoose. What dya think of Yaracuyanos v Deportivo Anzoátegui for BTTS 2moro???…. ;-) ;-) :-)

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Guido, Yaracuyanos v Deportivo Anzoategui sounds like two sides you’ve just made up. I don’t know if both teams exist never mind tip both to score.

    • Guido 11 years ago

      hahaha :-) No they exist Paul, genuine, Venezualan 2nd div or something…just looking for something obscure for a laff!! Thunderstorm the horse for me 2moro..shood hopefully do the biz with the usual small slice of luck u need, or maybe better still aviod any bad luck!!. Only fitba match I mite contemplate is in Brazil…Linense at home c 8/11 againt a team that’s lost 5 n won 1 odf their away against a 2, 3, 0 home record for Linense.

  70. Badham 11 years ago

    Nice one Weordie ill have a small fun punt for something to look out for. What time they on mate? Odds?

    • weordie 11 years ago

      Bedham the Portland game is at midnight and the Clippers game is 2am. Odds are almost always 10/11 in US sports when betting the handicap (or spread as they call it).

      I’m up at 5am for work so gonna place my bets quickly then off to sleep, I’ll watch the Clippers game when I’m getting ready for work in the morning on the NBA game pass

  71. Greg Browning 11 years ago

    Glad I had small stakes in the UK games tonight!

    Modena 2-3 Empoli

    Clean sweep :)

  72. Peter Brown 11 years ago

    1 bloody goal…cheers Wycombe!

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Peter, it’s on reason why I wanted to stick with the treble. Every time you add a team it can be trouble.

  73. bixie 11 years ago

    some crazy results tonight

    torquay won that was the main thing for me

    stevenage looked a great bet, bookies priced it spot on tho, as usual!

    not a single penny coming my way!

  74. Guido 11 years ago

    “Ladies n gentlemen…Milesey has left the building..” ;-) ;-)

  75. The Dane 11 years ago

    3 out of 10 based on tip from an Italien journalist and 3 out of 9 based on Mr. Fixit and Milesey but no complaints from here. It goes up and down and as long as you know how much to bet and when you should end up with a profit.

    I’m back Friday with my view on Denmarks game.

    The Dane.

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      The Dane, as you say one of those nights.

    • Milesey 11 years ago

      Yeovil Town 3.0 v Swindon Town 2.56, the draw 3.50

      Yeovil are not quite in the same blistering form of late, with only one win registered in their last five games. Three of those have been draws, including last week’s 2-2 home match against Crawley – an encounter they should have wrapped up the points.

      Gary Johnson’s side were 2-0 up and cruising, but lost their play in the second-half. They were slow to the ball and looked out of sorts. When Yeovil are on song, they get plenty of balls in to the box and their midfield four press well with great energy.

      They do have an impressive home record at Huish Park, and Johnson has moved in the transfer market to sign Latvian left-footer Vitalijs Maksimento and Charlton striker Jordan Cook.

      Like the Glovers, Swindon had no game on Saturday and they are decent on their travels. stats reveal that the Robins have kept eight clean sheets away from home this season – the best record in the league. And I think it might be a really tight affair here.

      Swindon are likely to be without Alan Navarro (hamstring) and Louis Thompson (international duty). Neither team are in red-hot form at the moment, and I would favour going at the 1-1 correct scoreline to back up the outright draw bet.

      Recommended bets:
      Back under 2.5 goals @ 1.88

      Southend 1.81 v Plymouth 5.0; The draw 3.85

      Southend have induced tears in anyone backing them at home in 2013. Paul Sturrock has blamed a string of injuries to key players at different times for the team struggling to maintain a play-off push. James Cresswell sat out Saturday.

      They are not out of the play-off reckoning totally yet, but three wins from 10 games does not bode well. The manager also justified Paul Bentley’s inclusion on Saturday by saying he had changed virtually every other position on the field, so why not goalkeeper?

      So he must take his share of the blame – as does a Johnstone’s Paint Trophy run that concludes at Wembley on April 7 – for a run of one win in seven at Roots Hall this calendar year – and that against Oxford who were on a bad run. They allowed Cheltenham and Northampton to snap up rare away victories, while also losing to strugglers Barnet and AFC Wimbledon. Saturday’s 1-1 draw was against improving Torquay.

      Shrimpers fans will be nervous of Plymouth, whose boss John Sheridan says he expects even more from Jason Banton, 21, despite the Crystal Palace loanee notching five goals in nine games. Four of those goals have come away, two at Aldershot in Plymouth’s last away win four trips ago.

      Sheridan has inferred his side are more used to a relegation scrap than winning and it sounds like he wants a clearout in the summer. Having won Chesterfield promotion, he could be the right manager to make this fallen giant a force next season – if they stay in League Two. Owner James Brent certainly has big plans inside and outside the club and non-league football is not what such big visions merit or sustain.

      There is certainly no way of justifying 1.81 on a home win, both sides having similar 10-game points hauls. Plymouth, one of five teams sharing bottom spot on 40 points, are the more desperate.

      It becomes a choice of lay the hosts, covering the draw, or be tempted by a big away price. As Plymouth have strung together back-to-back wins just once this season (and the sides have drawn their last two against each other), it would be best to repeat last week’s caution and lay Southend (that time against winners AFC Wimbledon).

      Recommended Bet:
      Lay Southend @ 1.81


      Torquay 2.74, v Chesterfield 2.82; The Draw 3.4

      Just how far have Torquay improved and can they win? Temporary boss Alan Knill believes their draw at Southend was their best performance in his six games, but after three draws he still awaits his maiden victory in charge – and Torquay are still winless in 11 matches.

      Rene Howe hogged headlines after scoring in a club record seven straight games up until mid-October, and Knill says he has refound his “unplayable” touch, while Notts County’s on-loan midfielder Joss Ladabie has scored in the last two games, having played three times.

      A great addition, then, but Knill still insists he is looking for one more loan player, making seven when only six can be in a match-day squad. Ruthlessness is needed at the foot of the table.

      Chesterfield, by all accounts, were fortunate to h0ld on to an early Marc Richards strike to win at in-form Oxford and would appear beatable if the Gulls can keep a rare clean sheet (1 in 11).

      What seems certain is a tight game. The last 10 Spireities games have finished with under 2.5 goals – available at 1.73 – (six from 10 for Torquay) and seven of Chesterfield’s 10 were under 1.5. A price of 3.1 reflects the lack of chances of that occurring.

      After two confidence-boosting away draws, the Gulls might just prevail at home, especially if they score first. Opta say Chesterfield have won no points from losing positions in away games this season.

      Recommended Bets:
      Back Torquay @ 2.74

      Milesey, not bad on a tough night. Btts was my only winner to add to Ural earlier so nothing lost overall. Right, dug’s getting dragged out in thw snow again. She’ll turn into a dalmatian soon.

  76. AL (Phd) 11 years ago

    Not a great night, nothing came in for me, £15 multiple & £10 on the BTS line with Southend v Plymouth thrown in! Would have been in profit for the night if I’d not been so greedy!

    Well in profit for the week after last nights win though.

    Small stakes the rest of this week due to the lack of games & international weekend.

    1 bet I’ve already put on for the Internationals is

    GARETH BALE @ 11/2 (Hope I’m wrong!!)

    £5 1st Goal Scorer Trixie – Returns £1070.50 if all score 1st

    £10 Anytime Goalscorer Treble – Pays £122.07

    RONALDO @ 8/11
    BALE @ 15/8
    LEWANDOWSKI @ 29/20

    At betvictor, might be better prices out there never checked

  77. Paul 11 years ago

    Have backed Zamalek a few times this season and did tonight also (not to win but to score twice). Also backed the Over 2.5 Market for that game and the home team got a late winner on that so was nice to get the two bets up for that game.

    Also had an Over 3.5 on the Grindavik game and a forth goal just went in so a decent nights football betting so far.

    I`ll be looking at a few of the South American games this evening shortly. :)

    • Paul 11 years ago

      I should have said…the home team pulled a late goal back on the Egyptian game (and not a winner!)

    • Paul 11 years ago

      Looks like very little action within the South American leagues tonight so probably an early night for a change!

  78. Bingo 11 years ago

    Lumped on the btts thanks for that one. Also had 2/1 on over 3 cards in Yeovil game. Heard guy on talk sport today saying ref was card happy. So it proved 1 minute in for 1st booking. 90th minute brought the 9th !!!!!! Card. Could be worth watching in future. Need to find his name. Easy money on that one

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Bingo, checked that ref Stroud out and stats are huge. 31 games this season and 121 yellows, plus five reds. That’s a big average.

    • AL (Phd) 11 years ago

      Sheffield United v Brentford (12:45)
      Geoff Law and Alan Young
      Fourth Official Andy Woolmer

      Might be worth a bet on the cards market in this one on Saturday!

  79. David Paterson 11 years ago

    New York Rangers to win in a SO 10/1

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      David, never been into the ice hockey but my neighbour’s trying to get me along to see Braehead Clan who I think are Scotland’s best team. Might give it a go, after all you can drink during games, but not sure if you can have a punt.

    • David Paterson 11 years ago

      No winners on that treble, let down badly by the hurricanes. Also CBJ were 4-1 ahead and conceded 2 in last minute to finish 4-3. Think ill stick to in play betting lol

  80. jwood 11 years ago

    Bingoo….the ref was called keith stroud

  81. David Paterson 11 years ago

    Av seen a few videos oF the Braehead clan, currently sittin bottom but only been in existence for 3 yrs. best spell was when they signed drew miller(NHL DETROIT RED WINGS 3rd liner) during the NHL lockout. Don’t think you can punt on them but on the NHL last night personally made about £120 on in play betting.

    I hopefully one day will get to see an NHL game live, BOSTON BRUINS @ TD GARDEN.

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      David, unsure of the standard at Braehead but I think my neighbour goes for the fights, beers and cheerleaders.

    • David Paterson 11 years ago

      Hhaha fair play to him, as good a reason as any.

      Al update the result of the tip I put up.

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      David, OK. I’m having an early night. Up early to see if there is any sight of green grass on the golf course.

  82. Bingo 11 years ago

    Stroud well DEFINATELY think it be worth keeping an eye out for games he’s ref in. Not usually a market I would follow – cards in a game – but well worth it tonight !!

  83. weordie 11 years ago

    Can only apologise for the rank outcome of my NBA picks; need to watch the games to see what went wrong. really surprised by that
