IT was a pretty quiet night on Monday and the Dutch Eerste games didn't live up to last week's billing.
I didn't think they'd all go over 2.5 goals for the second time running but in the end three fell short and my treble fell short.
My Super Single was a double on Brentford not to lose and Atalanta and over 2.5 match goals. Brentford did the business – even though they conceded two injury-time goals to draw 2-2 – but Atalanta made heavy weather of handing Benevento a 14th successive league defeat as they won 1-0.
Hoping to do better on Tuesday and there is much more to look at with four Premier League games including Watford v Man United and I've posted a separate English preview.
In the Championship there are two games and two more in League Two as well as some EFL trophy matches which I'll avoid.
Wednesday is the big night in Scotland with Rangers v Aberdeen and Motherwell v Celtic and on Tuesday the winners of St Mirren v Livingston will go top of the Championship while Inverness face Brechin and Dumbarton welcome Queen of the South.
I was interested in the Aberdeen price with Rangers having lost back-to-back games to Hamilton and Dundee. Celtic and Hibs have won at Ibrox this season and despite the fuss over Derek McInnes I can't see the Dons losing.
McBookie go 12-5 on an Aberdeen win which is likely but I'm having a decent-sized Super Single on Aberdeen draw no bet at 8-5. Rangers have won just two out of seven at home and until Friday had been better away with five victories.
On the Continent the focus is on the cups with games in Italy and Spain (second legs) while there are French Ligue 1 and 2 matches.
I'm focusing on the UK games and for a Super Single I'm chancing Dumbarton not to lose at Queens. Like Watford the Sons are too big at 15-4 with bet365 and McBookie when you consider they're unbeaten in four and their only defeat in six was at leaders Dundee United.
Queens were well beaten 3-0 at Livi at the weekend and their only win in four was a Scottish Cup replay at home to Montrose. How Queens can b 7-10 favourites beats me so with the odds seemingly wrong I'm backing Dumbarton draw no bet at 5-2 with BetStars.
For a Top Treble take West Brom not to lose against a Newcastle side off the boil and with one win in 17 in the Premier League on the road. Add Derby, one defeat in 11, to beat Ipswich at home and check out Nathan's comment on this one.
Complete with Inverness to beat Brechin – ICT were unbeaten in seven until Saturday's loss against St Mirren with a red card proving costly. Brechin picked up just their third point of the season at the weekend by drawing with Dundee United but by all accounts a “ploughed field” was the leveller. The surface in Inverness will be better and Brechin have no points on the road.
My both to score treble starts with the Premier League games at Leicester and Watford. All recent previous meetings between the sides on these grounds have brought up this market. Complete the treble with the St Mirren game which has come up in four of five meetings – the exception being a 1-0 Livi win in the Betfred Cup at the start of the season.
On the Continent best bets should be Sampdoria and SPAL at home to Pescara and Cittadella respectively in the Italian Cup as long as they don't go too weakened. In Spain Malaga are the only favourite trailing from the first leg and they are 8-13 to beat Numancia.
