IT was a day of mixed results but I was happy to land my 10-1 Betway enhanced top treble and the Five to Follow treble at 6-1.
Yesterday I was strong about Motherwell's chances and although they won it was a bit of a sweat against managerless Hearts.
I'm backing against another side who have parted company with their gaffer recently in Dundee. The Dens men, staring at relegation, have brought in club legend John Brown as interim boss and he faces a tough task today at home to Dundee United in the William Hill Scottish Cup.
There's no way Dee can avoid finishing bottom so this is their cup final and although Brown will extract fight from his players – as he did in the midweek draw against St Johnstone – I believe United have too much quality as well as a real desire to pick up a trophy under new boss Jackie McNamara.
The last three meetings of the sides have finished 3-0 to United and although it's unlikely to be as easy I'm on the away win at 5-6 with Ladbrokes.
Dundee Utd have a doubt over leading hitman Johnny Russell so first scorer have a look at skipper Jon Daly who is 11-2 at Ladbrokes.
Brown will have his men fired up and it could be a red-hot derby so consider a red card at
12-5 with Ladbrokes.
The other Scottish Cup tie between Killie and Hibs looks a draw as it was when they met last Wednesday. It was 2-2 then so consider over 3.5 goals at 14-5 with bet365.
I've also tipped goals at Spurs v Arsenal and over 3.5 pays 7-4 at BetVictor. Jermain Defoe is back to support goal machine Gareth Bale but after profiting so much on the Welshman recently I can't ignore him at 11-8 to Stan James – and is actually shorter than Defoe.
So Dundee United start my treble and I'm adding Siena at home to Atalanta. Siena have hit three goals in their last two home wins against Lazio and Inter so should boost their hopes of beating the drop with three points. They are 13-10 with William Hill and BetVictor.
Complete the treble with Sampdoria against a Parma side crashing down the table after four defeats in five. Samp on the other hand have won their last three at home, scoring 11 goals, and have conceded just once in five.
Icardi's on my anytime scorers Yankee with Falcao as Atletico Madrid visit Malaga. It's a big game for both sides but Atletico will be in buoyant mood after sealing a Copa de Rey final against Real Madrid and the return of their Colombian has raised their level again.
Malaga are chasing a Champions League place and of course are still in the tournament but I'm willing to risk Atletico at 13-8 as my Super Single – just ahead of Cagliari – with Coral and William Hill while Falcao is 9-2 at Stan James to score first.
