ALL week I've been banging on about checking team news before having a bet and that paid dividends for many on Tuesday night.
While some thought Man United were value at a big price against Man City in the EFL Cup most gave their support to City after line-ups were confirmed.
Maccathered switched his allegiance to City with a -1AH tip and I agreed that was the way to go with both teams to score also a fancy.
I didn't post any tips though so it was left to the likes of Greg and HullShaker to help out on the English non-league matches. Well done to all the winners including Scott with another cracking members bet.
Man City are virtually in the Final and I'm hoping Leicester to take a giant step towards joining them on Wednesday.
I posted a Super Single on Leicester -1 on Monday (now a best 10-11) and need them to win for my 23-10 Top Treble. Villa are out to 5-2 not to lose so easy cover for anyone interested.
Check out SlipTips' Leicester vs Aston Villa match preview here.
Elsewhere Real Madrid, without the likes of Bale, Benzema and Hazard, tackle Valencia in the Spanish Super Cup in Saudi Arabia followed by Barcelona v Atletico Madrid the following night.
Interesting to see Spain-based fans have given this money-grabbing event the cold shoulder With 26 Valencia fans travelling – that's as many as St Johnstone take away when Greg can make it.
Not sure how seriously this will be played but the Saudi fans will be up for it so goals probably the way to go.
There are three FA Trophy and EPL Trophy games too and goals may be tipped by those in the know.
