Tuesday, Klagenfurt (Austria), 7.45pm

WHEN I first looked at this game yesterday I thought it was no-bet friendly right away.

However, there is a chance Latvia can provide some value if reports that the Poles aren't playing any of their stars are correct.

Thoughts are turning to Euro 2012 and this is the first of three friendlies for the co-hosts.

But if they don't start any of their main men such as Robert Lewdanowski then the Latvians, looking to build on a good finish to their qualifying campaign, could take advantage.

Now I have to stress: Don't bet on this until starting line-ups are confirmed. If I see the teams I'll post them here.

If the Poles are weakened Latvia at a biggest 7-1 with bet365 could be a shout or go safer with draw no bet at 5-1 with Paddy Power.

Latvia's biggest threat will come from Artjams Rudnevs whose 22 goals for Poles Lech Poznan last season has earned him a move to Hamburg. He is 9-2 at bet365 to score.

And with it being a pretty meaningless friendly there is a chance of a few goals. Bet365 offer 1-1 on over 2.5.


Check starting line-ups and if there is no sign of Pole stars take Latvia draw no bet at x-x

    Tips fr the day!

    Estonia premier league!
    Top 3 teams after 12 games are already miles clear and only lose/draw to each other! They beat other teams by loads each game ha,
    Really short odds do go for a ht/ft treble at paddy power pays 34.10 to a tenner, better than a kick in the nads!

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      George, I hope they’re more predictable than the Irish top three yesterday.

  2. craig alves 12 years ago

    just put fiver on russian team rostov away in play offs 13/10 to start up new evens challenge. 3-0 up in first leg at home so dont need to win so a bit risky

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Criag, looks like a good start.

  3. craig alves 12 years ago

    cannae beat last minute gls lke haha, stuck another £10 on the win @17/10 and £15 on draw no bet 4/6. 1st half was all rostov so thats why put other bets on but shanik were better team in 2nd half and missed a pen,

    • Tom 12 years ago

      I had both Russian games to be a draw! so annoying

  4. Tom 12 years ago

      Lukasz Fabianski 12
      Sebastian Boenisch 2

  5. Nick 12 years ago

    Norwich evens tonight v a mixed Celtic side.

    I’m on.

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Nick, it’s a testimonial game, even less predictable than friendlies. I think I’ll leave it alone.

  6. craig alves 12 years ago

    no lawandowski, celtics brozek starting, dont know anthing about any players on either side. starting line ups on skysports website. is it as expected paul and worth bet on latvia

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Craig, I’m willing to go draw no bet although it’s still a bit of a minefield.

  7. craig alves 12 years ago

    cheers, withdrew £50 and put these on tonight

    £1.25 latvia draw no bet
    £2 villareal B-girona BTTS and cordoba -2
    £10 cordoba -1.5 @1.92, only 4/6 -1

  8. craig alves 12 years ago

    cordoba 2 up at ht, will be surprised if they don’t score anymore, just need a villareal gl for BTTS & the latvians to sneak it at the end

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Craig, fingers crossed. Hoping nothing much continues to happen in Poland game and Norwich v Celtic has been a tame affair from what I’ve watched.

  9. craig alves 12 years ago

    celtic game was always goin to be like, few youngsters made their debuts but no teams that stage testimonials often get beat. watched cordoba match after villareal scored but they couldn’t get 3rd gl for double. single up tho so on to tomorrows games with the ev’s ch,£19.20 in the pot so far

  10. Jamie 12 years ago

    The referee never even played the proper minutes in bioth halfs never mind injury time

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Jamie, betting on some of these games is a bit of a lottery to be honest. I’m not doing much else before the Euros except on real games like Barca on Friday and the weekend play-offs.

  11. craig alves 12 years ago

    £15 nords v horsens BTTS
    £4.20 alcorcon -1, fc basle, lausanne & mitdjylland BTTS 10/1

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Craig, I’m not putting up any tips today but I’m having a little double on Norwegian leaders Stromsgodset at home to Odd and in Sweden it’s Helsingborgs at home to Djurgarden.

  12. craig alves 12 years ago

    it was strmgodet i changed so lets hope they win to nil

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Craig, Stromgodset did the win to nil business but I still don’t like these games.

  13. kris mcdade 12 years ago

    evening paul,any tips on the bmw championship golf? good early prices?

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Kris, I haven’t had time this season to do golf tips but I’ve had a couple of bets. I’ve taken Zach Johnson at 16-1 to win the Crowne Plaza and Ben Curtis at 25-1 each-way for the BMW PGA.

  14. kris mcdade 12 years ago

    good shout paul,and with that in mind ive took ben curtis at 5/1 top 5 finish!

  15. Luke 12 years ago

    Paul, any chance you could start up your own ‘evens’ challenge? Im still on £57.60 from 4 bets from £3 original stake, as I didn’t fancy the btts selection that this ‘steels’ guy gave as his pick today! And couldn’t find any decent bets around even money elsewhere either

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Luke, even before the recent comments about the evens challenge I had planned to do one but it’s the wrong time of year to be honest. I’ll do it at the start of the new season. Also, it doesn’t have to be a side at evens. If you a team at smaller odds it will take longer to reach whatever goals you have, that’s all.

  16. Luke 12 years ago

    That’s true, but although shorter odds are theoretically more likely to be the safer bet, the more bets I do, the more likely I am to end up picking a loser! I’m ideally looking for any odds of 3/4 or bigger! So far they have been 15/8, 10/11, 3/4 and evens. The 15/8 was a horse, but that was just to get the challenge goiing! It’s definitely proving harder than I expected, although that’s probably due to fact there Is next to no football to choose from! Will be good to see next season how you get on with It, along with several others that’ll no doubt give it a try!

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Luke, will make it a feature next season and try to get it sponsored by a bookie with proceeds (if any!) going to charity.

  17. Luke 12 years ago

    Sounds good, look forward to it! Have just had a quick look through Thursdays fixtures, All in obscure leagues! Picked out a few that caught my eye, and if you or anyone else care to take a look at them and let me know what you think, it’d be much appreciated!
    Hjk Helsinki 1/2
    Seinajoen jk 5/4
    Jjk jyvaskyla 8/15
    Molde 4/5
    Chicago fire 5/6 (ko in hours time though)
    Halmstads 11/10

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Luke, have you seen the weather? I’ve basically had the week off and played loads of golf. I’ve been eyeing up Molde after the news Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is staying on as boss. They have a 100 per cent home record while Tromso have been great at home but haven’t won away. I’m looking at a single on Molde if I can get 4-5. HJK should be OK but no certs away to VPS.

  18. Luke 12 years ago

    That’s a great shout, forgot Ole was the manager there, even though its been on news last few days! Will see if anyone else has any input between now and The afternoon, but think im likely to go with molde.

  19. McGart 12 years ago

    Luke my evens is still going also. One bombed last nite as I tryed pauls double although very unlucky. The other is only 2 bets in and I have been playing alot safer on this line ie yesterday I had two korean fa cup teams @ 2/15 and then a 3/10 and a 2/9 which was celta vigo. Think I got lucky there as celta vigo where a man down and a goal down inside 10 mins but came back to win 4 1. Granted the more teams you take the harder it is but also in a way it should be alot easier. But not always the case. I was looking at red bulls last nite I thought they where a good thing but they drew 1 1.

  20. Luke 12 years ago

    The way I see it, is that if a team at really.short odds were to let me down, I’d be rather more annoyed than I would if a team around evens were to draw/lose…I’ve just seen Chicago fire won early this morning, but unfortunately I didn’t do them! Still likely to side with molde at the moment I think! Are you likely to be placing your 3rd bet today!?

  21. kris mcdade 12 years ago

    zach johnsons looking good for the crowne plaza

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Kris, he’s leading by two after a 64 so hopefully will keep it going. He has a great record in Texas and has won most of his tournaments there.

    • kris mcdade 12 years ago

      soz paul,what i meant was hes now 3/1 favourite from 12/1 this morning,long way to go but fingers crossed.

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Kris, I’ve got him at 16s, didn’t look at price this morning. It’s some cut though.
