WE'VE got another packed midweek card on Tuesday with the Aston Villa vs Leicester EFL Cup semi-final the main event.
There's a pile of Football League games and two Scottish Cup replays – Hibs v Dundee United and Falkirk v Arbroath.
On the Continent there are cup games in France, Italy, Spain and Holland so loads to consider.
Leicester cost me plenty when they failed to beat Villa in the home leg but after that 1-1 draw I reckon the Foxed will get the job done tonight.
Brendan Rodgers' side are well short at 4-9 with bet365 to qualify and I'll be more confident if Jamie Vardy is given the go-ahead to start.
Leicester are the better team and won 4-1 at Villa Park in the league in December – in the twos meetings this season they had 44 shots on goal which is a massive stat.
The 4-9 is so short that I'm chancing the Foxes to win at 4-5 with Marathonbet.
There are two Scottish Cup replays and I expect Hibs to beat Dundee United at the second attempt.
Hibs were the superior team in a 2-2 draw at Tannadice and as long as they take care of Lawrence Shankland should win in 90 minutes. With 26-goal Shankland such a threat, Hibs and both to score can land at 12-5 with McBookie.
Falkirk have been super strong at home in League One and will fancy their chances of knocking out Championship Arbroath and are 10-11 at McBookie. However, the Smokies deserve respect and are challenging for a play-off spot so this will be tight.
I've been reading my RFO most of the morning and have picked out two trebles and a moneyback fivefold. As always a midweek Football League card isn't easy so keep stakes low.
My goals bet features Hibs v Dundee United as I'm sure both sides will give it a go. Hibs' quality could tell in the end but where there's Shankland there's hope for the Tangerines.
Not many of the English games stand out for goals but Northampton v Scunthorpe has a decent chance. I watched a dreadful 0-0 draw between Northampton and Derby in the FA Cup on Friday but before that four in a row for the home men had brought up btts.
Scunthorpe's last six have brought btts and over 2.5 goals and two of their last three meetings at Northampton have gone that way.
Complete the treble with Monaco v St Etienne in the last 32 of the French Cup. Monaco's matches have been high scoring recently with the last six seeing both scoring and producing 34 goals. Four of St Etienne's last six have gone that way so going by stats should be goals tonight.
For a Top Treble I'm starting with Blackburn whose last game was a 5-0 thumping of Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough. QPR lost at home to a weakened Wednesday in the FA Cup on Saturday and have lost four in a row at Ewood Park without scoring.
Add Wycombe at home to a Blackpool side without a win in six. Wycombe have lost heavily at Peterborough and Sunderland in recent weeks but this game gives the League One title chasers a chance to get back on track.
Complete an 8-1 treble with Plymouth at home to Crawley. Plymouth have won four in a row and five out of six but Crawley are in decent form too with one defeat in six but three of them have been draws.
Third-placed Plymouth have won the only two meetings between the sides at home and Crawley have the second worst away record so I'm chancing the home at just under evens.
The moneyback fivefold is fairly speculative and I'm avoiding those on my treble. Start with Hibs who I'm quite confident about and add Leeds who really must beat Millwall at home to stay in the title chase.
If you can't trust Leeds – and there will be many who can't – swap them for Milan at home Torino in the Italian Cup. Torino were battered 7-0 at home to Atalanta at the weekend and face a side that's not high scoring but have won four in a row.
Derby were rotten at Northampton but in the Championship have won three out of four and can win at a Luton side that's lost five in a row.
Add on-form Portsmouth, six wins in a row, at Doncaster and Crewe at home to Orient in League Two.
Monday was a no bet day for me but well done to any winners including Scott with a nice 11-10 members bet success, HullShaker and maccathered.
