EVERY time I see Alaves on a coupon I can't help thinking of alves who is a regular contributor to the site.
I always wonder if he backs them and now and again swaps his Hoops top for an Alaves shirt.
Anyway I digress – the Spaniards have started the league brilliantly and have won three in a row including a 5-1 rout at Vallecano at the weekend.
After Wednesday's shock defeats for Barcelona and Real Madrid there is an incentive for Alaves to join the giants at the top of the tables and they should make it four in a row at home to Getafe – and if you prefer take them draw no bet as they are a decent price.
They're on a treble with Benfica -1AH at Chaves where they have won to nil the past two seasons. Benfica have dropped two points in their first five to lead the away and should stay in front of rivals Porto. A straight Benfica win isn't much shorter so that's an alternative.
Complete the treble with AIK at Gothenburg as they close in on the Swedish title. AIK are six points clear of Norrkoping after seeing off previous closest rivals Hammarby and face a side in poor form and just five points above the drop zone.
Elsewhere on Thursday there are two Serie A games – SPAL v Sassuolo and Empoli v Milan – and two more in La Liga as Girona tackle Betis and Valladolid take on Levante.
The treble is likely to be my only bet as I've got the funeral at lunchtime.
Yesterday my good run on the Super Singles continued with an over 2.5 goals win in games at Rangers and Sevilla although I didn't expect Real Madrid not to score. My two trebles were losers so it was a break-even day.
Well done to all last night's winners and good luck on Thursday.
