YOU couldn't really make it up! After the trials and tribulations of Saturday my Sunday treble was downed in the final minute of injury time in the last European match to finish.
And it was ex-Celt Moussa Dembele who was the culprit as he headed a last-gasp winner for Lyon at St Etienne that downed my +1 bet on the home men.
I've banged on a lot about it this month – but anyone on the treble should have cashed out for around 90 per cent of their potential winnings. After wins for Atlanta and over 2.5 goals at Ajax there were two good opportunities to take a big profit.
Firstly when St Etienne scored to make it 1-0 and secondly near the end with the clock running down. I don't like advising cash-out or cash-in because it's a bookies bonanza and some people hate it but there are times when it should be done and this was one.
I've taken a bit of stick for my stats this month but this was another unlucky blow and if I included cash-outs in the Super Singles I'd be in profit and the accas would look much better too.
But it's not fair to do that especially as often it can't be done without much notice.
My other treble was also close and beaten by Caen failing to score at home to Marseille.
Well done to all the winners including Greg with his Hearts nap and Scott with his members bet – and that's got a great hit rate at the moment. Scott and kevinmac also had some winners on their match previews.
Some decent games on Monday to look at including Bolton v West Brom, Juventus v Chievo, Genoa v Milan and Eibar v Espanyol.
Rino Gattuso's Milan lost 1-0 to Juventus in the Italian Super Cup in Jeddah in midweek and put up a good fight.
They're a fairly big price to win at struggling Genoa but bearing in mind their travels last week I'm starting a treble with Milan not to lose at around 4-11 or if you prefer take Milan draw no bet at about 1-2.
Genoa have won only one of their last eight at home but have beaten Milan on three of their last four visits.
Add Juventus -1 at home to basement boys Chievo. It should be a case of how many the unbeaten leaders win by. They've won all but two games this season and beaten Chievo in 23 out of 24 meetings including four out of six to nil at home. Juve to win to nil pays 4-6 at McBookie.
I don't like backing Championship away at odds on but fancy West Brom to win at Bolton to complete the treble. The Baggies have lost just one in 11 as they target promotion or at least a play-off spot while Bolton face massive problems on and off the pitch and relegation looks almost a certainty.
They have the worst home record in the division and while they'll fight tooth and nail the Baggies' quality should shine through.
Finally, I'd let to thank Jordan for his contributions mainly on US sports as well as some football bets. He's not being able to post much recently and has taken the decision to stand down.
