SOMETIMES the Europa League can cause punters problems but results on Thursday night went pretty well.
There were winners all over the place so well done to everyone including Greg, HullShaker and Scott Allot with his members bet.
I continued to make profit in August – usually a tough month – with two winning trebles at 37-10 and 18-5.
I put up a Friday Super Single a few days ago and still fancy Motherwell not to lose at home to Hearts in the Betfred Cup. SlipsTips, who had two winners on his Rangers post yesterday, has posted a Motherwell vs Hearts preview.

Other games include Huddersfield v Fulham and La Liga opener between Athletic Bilbao and Barcelona.
It's Bayern Munich v Hertha Berlin in the Bundesliga and Lyon v Angers in Ligue One.
Usual French and Dutch lower-league game as well so plenty to look at.
As usual the time I have to spend on Friday tips is limited as I concentrate on finishing my Daily Record columns but I've picked out a treble.
Motherwell not to lose would be in there if it wasn't for the Super Single so start with Fulham not to lose at Huddersfield. Last season this was a Premier League fixture with Fulham losing 1-0 in Yorkshire but this season they look the stronger team.
Huddersfield started with a home defeat to Derby then drew at QPR before being knocked out of the League Cup at home to Lincoln.
Fulham surprisingly lost their opener at Barnsley but then beat Blackburn and should make it two wins out of three.
Add Lyon at home to Anger. Both sides won well last week but home advantage should see Lyone edge this one.
Complete the treble with Vitesse at home to a Zwolle side who have started poorly and have a terrible record at Vitesse – no wins in eight.
While I'd expect Barcelona to win at Athletic Bilbao the home side usually make it difficult for top-class opponents. There's no Lionel Messi for the champions but Antoine Griezmann's not a bad replacement and he will line up with Luis Suarez.
Bayern Munich also have a tricky opener in the Bundesliga with Hertha the visitors. Bayern didn't score against their rivals last season, losing 2-0 and drawing 0-0, and for me they're too short to back.
