IT wasn't a great Sunday for results or outstanding games so thank goodness for Chelsea v Man United.
I didn't fancy much at all and my one bet on over 2.5 goals was a loser. Greg didn't like the card either but at least his one bet on over 2.5 goals at Motherwell landed thanks to a last-gasp howler by Hearts keeper Colin Doyle.
Well done to all the other winners and let's move on to tonight.
At the weekend Chris Sutton was asked on Radio 5 if the FA Cup fifth round had felt a bit flat. For me that was an understatement – there were no shocks, no big games and most of the Premier League sides don't take it seriously.
It was summed up for me when I had to listen to commentary on Wimbledon v Millwall on the way home from my match. No interested.
I am, however, more excited by Chelsea vs Man United tonight and Scott has posted a preview. I fancy United to win as long as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer plays close to his strongest side but safest bet could be Man United not to lose.
A draw certainly has a chance and I like HullShaker's thinking about it possibly going all the way to penalties.
Elsewhere tonight we have Roma v Bologna in Serie A, Huesca v Athletic Bilbao in La Liga, Nuremberg v Dortmund in the Bundesliga and Aves-Benfica in Portugal and I've picked out a treble.
Let's start with over 2.5 match goals at Roma who have conceded 17 in 11 home games so while they should win they could concede to a Bologna side that's netted in their last three on the road at Inter, SPAL and Napoli.
Dortmund need a lift after following three score draws in the Bundesliga and cup with a shattering 3-0 defeat at Spurs to almost certainly to exit the Champions League.
They can now concentrate fully on going for the title and victory at basement boys Nurnberg will lift them five clear of second-place Bayern Munich. Dortmund won 7-0 at home and should get back on track against a side with eight defeats in nine and I'm backing them to win by at least two.
Complete the treble with Benfica -1 at third-bottom Aves. Benfica have netted a remarkable 21 goals in four matches domestically including that 10-0 home success against Nacional. They also hit four at Sporting in the cup and knocked five past Boavista.
Aves have kept two clean sheets in three and have conceded 15 at home in 11 so should avoid being routed but I expect Benfica to win by at least two.
For a Super Single I'm going with a double on straight wins for Dortmund and Benfica.
