IT was one loser and one winner for me on a Monday night that provided few sparks.
The Steel derby was as expected closely fought and well done to Kevin for predicting draw and under 2.5 match goals in his preview.
He also tried a long shot of one red each and I went with both to have two cards based on the ref stats and the fact it was a derby but that was blown out of the water with none. Incredible.
Also incredible was the fact Hearts didn't beat Partick Thistle in the Scottish Cup after one of the most one-sided first halves I've seen in a long time.
It was only 1-0 to the Jambos and they paid the price for missed chances when Thistle scored with maybe their only chance of the game. I'm sure Hearts will get the job done second time round and set up a semi-final with an Inverness side they beat 5-0 in the Betfred Cup.
After a big price drift on Hearts – still don't know why I took them draw no bet on the Top Treble so I ended with an 8-5 winning double on Hamburg and both to score at Midtjylland v Nordsjaelland. Thanks for clueless and others for that one.
Spurs are all but through after a 3-0 win at Wembley and it's the same story for Real who lead 2-1. I can see goals here if Dortmund and Ajax haven't conceded defeat and for now I'm putting up an over 2.5 goals double.
There's not much else to look at with Derby v Wigan, Accrington v Blackpool and Cheltenham v Bury in the English leagues with Bury looking best of those bets.
Bristol Rovers tackle Sunderland in the EFL Trophy and there are plenty of English non-league games to size up.
In Scotland it's Brechin v East Fife in League One and in League Two the top two are in action as Cowdenbeath entertain Peterhead while Edinburgh City take on lowly Berwick.
It's a pretty skinny card but I'm adding a 1pt Top Treble. Derby were as bas as they could have been at Aston Villa at the weekend but Frank Lampard will make changes and they should be too good at home to a Wigan side struggling to stay clear of the drop zone.
If Derby don't win tonight there play-off hopes could be finished and I believe they'll rise to the occasion and bag the points at a tempting price of over evens. Be interesting to hear nathan's thoughts.
Bury as we know are better at home but victory at lowly Cheltenham tonight will give them a massive lift in the race for automatic promotion. Not easy but again Bury are odds against and that's good enough for me.
Complete the treble in Scottish League 2 as promotion-chasers Edinburgh City entertain second-bottom Berwick. Should be a convincing win for the home men but as they are around 1-6 I'm on City -1AH.
