I WAS searching long and hard for a hidden gem yesterday – and all the diamonds turned out to be close at home.
For the second day running I landed a first-scorer Super Single. On Tuesday it was Mario Balotelli at 5-2 and last night I tipped Queen of the South's Nicky Clark at 4-1 with McBookie.com.
Clark struck inside the first minute to possibly land my fastest Super Single of all time.
I also tipped Falkirk at 19-10 to dump crisis-hit Dunfermline, Dumbarton draw no bet at 29-20 v Raith and a victory for Queens at 5-6 as they clinched the Second Division title.
My hidden gem, however, crashed as Belenenses went down to Vitoria in the Portuguese Cup. So sometimes it pays to stick with what you know best.
Tonight there is a Serie B card which has been kind us recently and I'm going there for my Super Single. The big game features leaders Sassuolo at home to second-placed Verona and I can see the away side causing some problems.
Sassuolo have drawn their last two games and maybe the edge has been taken off their game after being so far ahead in the title race. Verona have won their last three away games and closed the gap to nine points.
As my last two Super Singles have been first scorers I have to mention the man in form, Daniele Cacia whose double for Verona at Crotone last weekend took his tally for the season to 18. Can't see a price for him but hopefully they'll be up later.
Verona draw no bet
(11-8, William Hill)
