MY Saturday change of tact worked to a certain extent with two winners, one loser and one void bet out of four.
It added up to a profit of 5.3pts but strangely I felt a bit underwhelmed despite a 3pts Super Single winner at evens on Cove & over 1.5 match goals and Arsenal bringing up the English both to score treble at 33-10.
My loser was the Scots both to score treble while my moneyback fivefold saw the stake returned for four out of five – my biggest-priced selection of Albion Rovers letting me down.
Profit is profit so I should be happy with that and probably go the same way next Saturday with a Top Treble thrown in.
Well done to all the winners on Saturday including Greg with his two main tips of Hibs to score 2+ and Dundee United to score 2+ and selectabet who had a winning double from his three goals picks.
Some big games to look at on Sunday with Spurs v Newcastle and Bournemouth v Man City and in Scotland it's St Mirren v Rangers and Celtic v Hearts ahead of Europa League second-leg ties on Thursday.
Top matches in Europe include Barcelona v Real Betis and Udinese v Milan so plenty of games to look at.
Price on the big favourites and a fivefold on City, Spurs, Celtic, Rangers and Barcelona pays just 17-10. They should all win but Barca have injury problems with Luis Suarez and Ousmane Dembele out but Lionel Messi is set to return. Bookies are certainly trying to tempt us with 2-5 and over 2.5 goals might be the best bet.
I'd planned to watch the golf from Atlanta last night but it was suspended for the night after lightning strikes at the course and let's hope the injured fans are all OK.
So it was a night in with the RFO instead and I've picked out a Top Treble. Not much standing out in the way of goals but I've picked out a treble that includes Barcelona v Real Betis. These games at the Nou Camp tend to produce goals with Betis winning there 4-3 and losing 6-2 three seasons ago – every chance they'll be on target again.
Five of the last six meetings between Samp and Lazio have brought up btts while City could net three on their own at Bournemouth if they're in the mood.
I'm starting with Celtic and over 1.5 goals at home to Hearts side they've beaten at home seven in a row and netted 23 times. Neil Lennon's side will be feeling better about themselves after beating AIK to stand on the verge of the Europa League groups and should beat a Jambos side that's not started the season but at least beat Motherwell last week to reach the Betfred Cup last eight.
Taking the win and over 1.5 goals gives the odds a nice boost and I'm taking the same bet with Spurs and Roma. Spurs face a Newcastle side that's started with two defeats under Steve Bruce and look on low confidence. They were spanked at Norwich and should stand little chance against a Spurs side who ended Man City's long winning league run last week after beating Aston Villa 3-1 in their opener.
Complete the treble on the opening weekend of Serie A and back Roma and over 1.5 goals at home to Genoa. Roma have won 13 in a row against their rivals in the capital and should ease past a side who avoided the drop on the final day last season.
