IT turned out to be a smashing Sunday but both Rangers and Aberdeen made me sweat big time.
Rangers needed a last-gasp goal to beat a resilient Kilmarnock and the Dons came back from 2-1 to beat 10-man Hearts 3-2 with a couple of late strikes.
Their wins landed three of my bets – an 11-2 Top Treble, an 11-10 Daily Double and 23-10 Top Treble for profit of around 17 points.
Sam Cosgrove's opener for Aberdeen gave me a Super Single success at evens and a 22-1 winner for the VIP Tips after I doubled him with Cove's Mitch Megginson.
My only setback was a goals treble beaten by a 0-0 at Mouscron and it was disappointing because the other picks on my shortlist were all winners such as Man City v Liverpool and Den Haag v Utrecht.
Looks like a great day all round on the site with winners for the likes of Scott with the members bet, Greg's NAP, HullShaker, macca, sb and cockerspaniel. Also SlipsTips with some nice picks on his match previews including Killie's Alan Power to be booked.
So after a hectic weekend it's time to breathe before going again. On Monday the Championship game sees Huddersfield entertain Derby and Rams fan Nathan doesn't see his side losing so check out his comment.
Not much else to look out but if I've picked out a double with some site assistance. Happy to risk 1pt after a flying start to the month.
I'm taking Derby not to lose against a Huddersfield side who may take some time to adapt to life in the Championship after a terrible season in the top flight.
Shortee has put up a good case for Bodo Glimt who are chasing Molde at the top of the Norwegian league. Glimt have won four out of five and travel to baement boys Stromsgodset. Should win but did lose 6-0 at Valerenga on their last road trip so I'm taking less risk with them not to lose.
That double looks OK at 7-5 but I'm adding Djurgaardens draw no bet at Elfsborg. Again the visitors should win against side who have suffered back-to-back three-goal defeats but they haven't triumphed at this venue in four attempts so I'll go draw no bet.
Also putting up an early Super Single although it's arisky one without team news. There are first round games in the Challenge Cup tomorrow and Lowland League title favourites Kelty Hearts make their tournament debut.
Kelty, managed by Barry Ferguson, are hugely ambitious and signed four senior players in the summer including striker Nathan Austin from Inverness. That was a bit of a coup as he's good enough to still be playing at Championship level.
Kelty have started with two league wins and as long as they go strong tomorrow should beat Kilmarnock Colts. The young senior teams have mainly struggled in this competition against older and more experienced professionals and I like the Fifers at 17-10 with McBookie – they are short as 4-6 in Ladbrokes shops.
