IT was a Super Sunday as I completed another £10 to £1000 challenge.
The last couple of bets are the easiest on paper yet the toughest due to the high stakes involved. At the start the target is to get to £1000 so there's no stopping early and often I have to remind myself all I'm going to lose is a tenner.
That's difficult when the final stake's in the region of £850 – and my advice to anyone playing along is to always consider taking the money.
This time of course it was a team effort with three selections being posted on Twitter for a public vote. Two of three Sunday selections won so well done to everyone who voted for over 1.5 match goals at Werder Bremen v RB Leipzig.
At Christmas we gave away £500 each to two Gold members and the £1000 will again go to Gold members but this time we're thinking about giving away some tickets to exciting events so keep your eyes peeled.
My Super Single was also a winner yesterday thanks to Newcastle +1 and PSV +1 and with both winning that would have been a nice straight double.
The Top Treble lost early thanks to Fiorentina but would have been demolished by Man United's shocking display against West Brom.
I was disappointed with the btts treble. After Sassuolo and Werder Bremen landed I was let down by the Rome derby while the others on my shortlist at PSG, Schalke, Admira and Feyenoord all landed. The Rome derby could have been covered but I was hoping to net the full 7pts.
That's how it goes sometimes and hopefully I'll have a good acca up this week to get the stats back on track.
Well done to all the winners on Sunday and good luck for Monday. It's a quiet one with West Ham v Stoke, Mainz v Freiburg, Rio Ave v Tondela and some Irish games.
West Ham will be well backed at evens and the more I've looked at the stats the more convinced I am they'll win. Davie Moyes's men have recovered from those dreadful scenes at home to Burnley to beat Southampton 3-0 then draw at Chelsea.
Stoke, meanwhile, are looking down and out after just one win under Paul Lambert and four defeats in a row since drawing 0-0 with Saints.
Four of the last five playings of this one have finished level so I'm taking West Ham draw no bet and doubling them with Mainz not to lose.
Unibet blogger Raphael Honingstein has posted a good preview on the game and makes a case for Mainz as well as both scoring in a game between two sides battling the drop.
For a Super Single I've decided to go with West Ham's Marko Arnautovic at 22-5 with Marathonbet to score first. The ex-Stoke striker has hit three in his last three home games including a double against Southampton and will be right up for this one.
