IT was a fairly typical Saturday for me and pretty much a break-even day thanks to Liverpool completing my Top Treble.
That gave me a 7pts winner on Liverpool, Man City and Bayern Munich to win with over 2.5 goals in the three games.
Made up for an agonising defeat on the moneyback special with a 22pts win torn away late on as first Chelsea then Rotherham conceded late equalisers.
My other two trebles and the St Johnstone Super Single were losers so it all added up to a 51.3pts profit on the accas for August and 2pts down on the Super Singles.
At the start of the month I'd have bitten your hand off for those figures but with a little bit of luck in the past week I could have been closer to the 100pts mark.
Well done to all the winners on another Saturday where it's all about narrowing down your shortlist and selecting the right ones.
Greg did that perfectly with two winners out of two while HullShaker's Nap landed. Desmond was a goal away from a nice winner on his over 2.5 goals treble and Scott's both to score treble came in at night.
On Sunday the big game is Rangers v Celtic in the Premiership. I've posted a match preview here.
In England there is another big derby between Arsenal v Spurs while Everton entertain Wolves.
Big games on the Continent include the Rome derby, Villarreal v Real Madrid and Marseille v St Etienne.
Plenty to look at and I'm starting with a both to score treble. Have tipped goals in the Old Firm clash so will include that and also Arsenal v Spurs with four of the last five bringing up this market. Add Villarreal v Real Madrid where four out of five have produced more than 3,5 goals including three 2-2 draws.
Also trying another 1pt moneyback fivefold plus a goals-based treble that starts with Ajax to win and over 2.5 goals at Sparta Rotterdam. Ajax have won there 5-2 and 3-1 in the past two seasons while Sparta's last six have gone over 3.5 goals.
Add both to score at Werder Bremen v Augsburg with both seeing both score in their previous four. Complete the treble with over 2.5 goals at Eintracht Frankfurt v Fortuna Dusseldorf.
It was 7-1 Eintracht last season and Fortuna's last six have brought up btts with four of their last five going over 3.5 goals.
The moneyback fivefold is of course more of a long shot and starts with the shortest price in Ajax. Add French Ligue 1 leaders Rennes to maintain their 100 per cent record at home to Nice and staying in France take a chance on Marseille at home to St Etienne in the live night game – Saints haven't won in 25 on the south coast.
Atletico Madrid should be too good at home to Eibar after starting with two 1-0 wins and complete the fivefold with Atalanta to take advantage of any weariness in the legs of Torino after a hard-fought Europa League defeat at Wolves on Thursday.
Loads of punters lost out on Saturday due to cash-out problems and we've posted on this. Bookies are covered when hit by technical problems but still worth contacting them if you feel cheated.
