IT was a strange day – Man City and Liverpool looking pedestrian and my long-shot tips doing better than the shorter-priced ones.
Liverpool did just enough to see off Brighton and are the early pacesetters after City shipped two points at Wolves.
Lack of goals at Molineux and Anfield downed my Top treble but the Super Single won at 19-10 thanks to Ayr's 4-1 thumping of Dunfermline. Somehow the Pars were favourites and that was one bookies got very wrong.
My moneyback fivefold and both to score treble were losers but on the long shots for members only I had a 22-1 four aways winner and the Bonkers Bet of Bournemouth 2, Everton 2 landed at 13-1. I've had 38-1 and 22-1 away fourfold winners this month but they don't contribute to my points total unfortunately.
As well as Ayr all the other five bets I recommended on my Scottish preview won so my stats should be looking better. They were Lawrence Shankland to score (19-10), Queen of the South (2-1), St Johnstone (11-10), Arbroath (20-23) and Annan.
Well done to all the winners and there were plenty and good luck on Sunday.
There's a busy card with Celtic v Hamilton and Motherwell v Rangers in the Scottish Premiership and three games in the Premier League including Newcastle v Chelsea.
On the Continent there are matches to look at in all of the big leagues and I've added more tips.
Celtic and Rangers are both short and Rangers could have one eye on their Europa League return with Ufa in Russia on Thursday having won just 1-0 at Ibrox. Kyle Lafferty could start after signing from Hearts and if he starts could be worth a look at 4-1 with bet365 to break the deadlock and 11-10 to score.
Motherwell skipper cranked up the heat before this one by saying it was fun to see Gers man Fabio Cardoso “weeping” after breaking his nose last year.
He's apologised for the comments but there's bound to be some bad feeling. Gers have had players sent off in their first two league games and a red today pays 4-1 at bet365 and is the Super Single. Other tips will be added in the morning.
Celtic have won five in a row at home to Accies and while they should bank the points they could be a bit heavy-legged after their trip to Lithuania. Brendan Rodgers has bemoaning defensive boobs and his side haven't kept a clean sheet so both to score could be a shout even though are Accies are low scores.
In England I like Fulham at a Burnley side finding it difficult to juggle Premier League and European football with a small squad. They should be a bit bigger than evens though and Chelsea also short at Newcastle considering they've lost four of their last five at St James' Park.
For my Top Treble I'm backing Sevilla at home to Villarreal. Sevilla are always strong at home and have more games under their belt than their opponents who lost 2-1 at home to Sociedad last week while Sevilla were winning 4-1 at Vallecano.
Add Zenit St Petersburg to win at Ufa. Both are involved in Europa League returns on Thursday and it will be Ufa who are more distracted as they welcome Rangers trailing just 1-0.
It's Ufa's first Euro campaign and they're excited at the prospect of Steven Gerrard coming to town and a chance to reach the group stage. Players are likely to be rested while Zenit and their big squad have done it all before and won't expect to lose a 3-1 lead in Molde.
Complete the treble with Fulham draw no bet against a Burnley side whose squad hasn't handled a Europa League schedule very well. Gerrard says this is the most hectic run of games he's experienced and again it's new to Burnley who are paying the penalty for not adding to their squad.
