IT was a day when Rangers and Liverpool were to mark down their title credentials but it ended being another day for bookies as both flopped.
Rangers' stay at the top of the Premiership lasted one game as they were held at Hearts while Liverpool's perfect start to the season ended with a 1-1 draw at archrivals Man United.
To be fair to the two underdogs they stepped it up and deserved their points but the two title contenders will be disappointed in their displays.
Both cost me on another poor day but well done to all the winners including Greg, HullShaker and SlipsTips with some good shouts on his match previews.
My Man Utd v Liverpool predictions contest attracted hundreds of entries with the vast majority going for Liverpool.
Plenty of people picked two out of five correct with one backing Adam Lallana to score or just four corners in the match.
However, one person gave me three correct answers so well done to Kabed who on the first post took 1-1, Marcus Rashford to score first and 1-0 half-time. Your prize of a £25 Ladbrokes bet can be claimed by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
On Monday the big game is Sheffield Utd v Arsenal and I expect the home men to make it tough for their illustrious opponents in the first meeting of the sides for 11 years. Check out kevinmac's match preview.
Not much else to look at ahead of the Euro ties but there is Brescia v Fiorentina in Serie A and some Dutch second-tier matches but I've picked out a treble with the help of site contributors.
Under 1.5 goals and under 2.5 goals has been tipped at Bramall Lane and I can see why. I don't like unders bets because an early goal can change everything but it looks the call here with United scoring seven and conceding seven and the Gunners netting five on the road in four outings.
The Blades have lost 1-0 at home to Southampton, Sunderland and Liverpool so that is a possible scoreline. But since this is part of a treble I'm on under 3.5 goals at around 4-11.
Add btts at Brescia and that's landed in four out of five meetings. Brescia's last three defeats have been to Napoli (1-2), Juventus (1-2) and Bologna (3-4) so they can score against decent sides and La Viola are one of those after going five unbeaten.
Four of their last six have brought btts including Milan away (3-1), Atalanta away (2-2) and Genoa away (1-2).
I could have added Bodo/Glimt to win or Djurgaarden draw no bet but I'm going with a tip put up by mr h which is good on price and stats. He's backing both to score at 21-20 at Frosinone v Livorno with both sides conceding in their last seven and scoring in their previous four.
If you don't like this consider both to score and over 2.5 goals at Jong Ajax and that comes from wasclueless.
