MONDAY was a no bet day for me but there's plenty to look at on Tuesday with Champions League qualifiers and the latest group games in the not so punter friendly Betfred Cup.

In the Champions League it's getting serious and there are some good-looking ties such as Astana v Midtjylland, Cluj v Malmo, PAOK v Basel and Dinamo Zagreb v Hapoel. Celtic are in action against Rosenborg on Wednesday with the winners facing AEK Athens.

I think it was Alves who flagged up Astana earlier in the week and it's difficult to look past them. They are pretty experienced at this level and are unbeaten in the Champions League at home having faced the likes of Atletico Madrid, Benfica, Celtic and Galatasaray.

Danish champions Midtjylland though impressed in the Europa League last season and netted in all eight of their games. I fancy Astana to win but both sides could score.

Basel are clearly a better side than PAOL but this is a tough trip for the Swiss whose campaign started last weekend with a Super League defeat to St Gallen. Basel have never been knocked out at this stage and the price for them not to lose is a tempting 11-10 with bet365. Again btts has a chance.

Could also be goals in the games between Shkendija v FC Sheriff and Dinamo Zagreb v Hapoel Beer Sheva but I'm completing the treble with Legia Warsaw at home to Spartak Trnava.

Legia cruised past Irish champions Cork 4-0 in the previous round but have started the season with a Super Cup defeat to Arka and league loss against Zaglebie.

However, they should be too experienced for a Spartak outfit competing in the CL for the first time after a debut Slovakian league success. They struggled past Bosnians Zrinjski 2-1 in the first round.

I've added a Betfred Cup treble even though it's a tournament to be careful with as there have been plenty of surprise results.

I'm backing Partick Thistle and Kilmarnock to cover the -1 handicap at Albion Rovers and Spartans respectively as well as Ayr, with two wins in two, at home to Stenhousemuir.

Well done to all Monday's winners and good luck on Tuesday.

  2. leroy 4 years ago

    Evening all – hope you’re all well.

    I’ve been having my usual summer lull on the betting front. However, I’m slowly starting to get myself back into the groove of things ahead of the new season starting in a few weeks, so I’ll give Tuesday’s efforts a post here.

    Seems a lot has been posted about Astana, and I like the look of Shkendija too. Very strong at home and opponents Sheriff conceded twice in defeat away to an average Georgian outfit in the previous qualifying round.


    O0.5 Team Goals Double @ 8/11 (Betstars)

    A little early season form indicates that there could be goals between these two sides. Both Burghausen and Illertissen have seen goals at both ends in their pre-season friendlies too, with Illertissen particularly impressing in a 3-3 draw with Stuttgart and netting in a 3-1 defeat to Basel. That’s 4 games apiece since the little summer break (2 friendlies, 2 league games) with BTTS and Overs landing in all of them. Both clearly have an eye for a goal and a leakiness at the rear, so I’ll chance a reduced stake.

    Half Stake:

    Burghausen v Illertissen

    BTTS & O2.5 Match Goals @ 43/50 (Marathonbet)

    One friendly tomorrow perhaps worth looking out for is Willington v Spennymoor. Spennymoor trashed a Billingham side 11-1 in a friendly a week ago. By all accounts, it seems that Willington play their football in the 10th tier of English football – a direct regional division below Billingham (9th tier). National League North side Spennymoor have played two ties against stronger opposition (Middlesborough, Hartlepool) where the manager wanted to ‘get his side organised’. He mentioned also that they had organised friendlies to see his ‘attackers get some goals’ – I can only assume he means the Billingham game, their 2-2 draw with Scarborough and perhaps Tuesday night’s friendly with Willington.

    Always a big risk that Spennymoor might not field a strong side, or be at it, but on those form lines they should score a few. O2.5 goals is set at 2/7 (Bet365) but you can get a bigger line via the betbuilder.

    I’m having a go, but I recommend seeing if it appears in-play with a goal line at O3.5 or so.

    Small Stake:

    Willington v Spennymoor

    O4.5 Match Goals @ 6/4 (Bet365)

    Couldnt believe the results when I woke up this morning. Just one of those very odd nights that happen 2 or 3 times in the season. -21.5 units. Sorry guys.

    Bookies must have made a killing. Everyone was on the Indians…the Yankees price was smashed in the first hour from 20/23 to 8/13. Both lost. Other weird results too.

    Can only apologise.

    The CL apart tonight there’s 2 teams that interest against poor opposition. Ayr at home too Stenhousemuir should be straightforward enough after opening with 2 wins(2-0 away at Albion & 3-1 home to Morton) and Partick away too an Albion Rovers side that filled their squad with junior and amateur players in the summer after Brian Kerr’s departure. Both sides should win by at least 2

    Ayr – 1 20/21
    Partick – 1 4/7

    2/1 double

  5. mr h 4 years ago

    Indonesia league 2 for a short priced double

    Top team Semen Padang entertain 4th place PSPS. The leaders have won 7 from 9 as they look for an immediate return too the top flight. They’ve won 5/5 at home(2-0,1-0,2-0,3-2 & 1-0). The away side are 4th but in reality they are closer too the bottom(6pts) of the 12 team league than they are too the hone side at the top(8pts). Should be a 6th straight home win at a short 1/2

    The later game is a city Derby in a place called Banda Aceh (which sounds like a plaster for piles) that sees 2 mid table teams that like too score and concede. Aceh United entertain Persiraja Aceh, the home sides 9 games have totalled 30(F13 A17) & away totalled 28(F17 A11). The home side have played 4 home games(2-1,2-2,3-1,2-2) & the away side have played 4 away(2-1,2-2,3-2,4-2). All signs point too goals o2.5 looks decent at 31/40 plus o3.5 could have a chance at 7/4.

    Semen Padang 1/2(9:30)
    Aceh Utd o2..5mgls 31/40(14:30)

    1.6/1 double

    Aceh Utd o3.5mgls 7/4

    • maccathered 4 years ago

      Absolutely no chance.

    • tennisace 4 years ago

      as Macca said, the chances are slim to none. Tehran is the most annoying pitcher.

      Lets see how the night goes. If the Yankees lose (very confident they won’t-hence my highest MLB stake yet) we will have a lighter day tomorrow as I need to reset my thoughts.

    No joy in Bolivia yesterday but looking to get back on track with a touch of Iceland action hailing from the 4 Deild…


    I’ve flagged Renir’s vulnerablity a few times this season already and although there are no guarantees, this top vs. bottom clash could spell trouble for the visitors.

    Ulfarnir have played 9 and won 9 having amassed a g/d of +22…to put that in perspective, Reynir have a g/d of -14 which is a difference of 36!

    The hosts have netted 5-5-3-3-3-5-1-1-3 times in their consrcutive league games and could well batter their opposition who have no wins in 8 and have conceded 14 goals in their own last 4 games.

    One asian selection that offers a touch of insurance for 4 and a full payout for 5+:

    GL 4.0, 4.5…2.000

    Best of luck ??

    Afternoon gents

    Another 12 Betfred cup matches tonight – Mr F has rightly pointed out its been tough to bet on so far with quite a few surprising results. The Premiership teams have really made hard work of it with most of the 8 teams dropping points at some stage

    Goals is probably the best way to go tonight

    Hearts v Cowdenbeath
    Motherwell v QOS

    Two matches that should see plenty of goals – Hearts need to win this after their ineligible player point reduction and should ease past Cowdenbeath. Motherwell welcome probably the most impressive side in the competition so far QOS led by their goal King Stephen Dobbie who has already netted 7 goals so far in his sides three games. Motherwell won convincingly at home in their opener and wouldn’t be surprised to see both sides net

    Back over 2.5 match goals double 5/4 (Bet365) (NAP)


    The two matches mentioned above as well as Killie at Spartans and St Mirren at Queens park also look appealing for goals and they should all aid in landing the Skyebet total match goals from all 12 games

    4/5 for 37+ goals should land but going to take 39+ goals at 11/8

    Evening chaps.

    Back for the new season. Kicking off with a double tonight in the Scottish League Cup.
    Partick -1 and Stranraer double chance returns just over evens.

    Albion have appointed a junior manager and filled the team with mostly junior players. Thistle should be far too strong for them. Stranraer have lost 1 and drew 1 so far this season but they did net 3 times away to Championship side Queen of the South before holding Motherwell to a 1-1 draw at the weekend. Clyde on the other hand drew at home to Edinburgh City before going down 3-0 away to Queen of the South.

    • ausie11 4 years ago
