THURSDAY was one of the quietest days on the site for some time.
Greg Browning was having the shakes with no French football to bet on and really all there was to look at apart from friendlies was Leganes v Real Madrid with the favourites playing their cup team and winning 1-0 late on.
The good news for Greg and others is there's a full French Ligue 2 card to consider on Friday so watch out for his tips.
Elsewhere we have a cracker in the Championship between Derby and Bristol City and County fan nathan will put his thoughts. I fancy Derby as City's thoughts could be on their EFL Trophy Cup semi-final and that's been a distraction to them in recent weeks.
Since beating Man United to reach the last four they've won one in seven and have lost their last five. They were superb at Man City and the late 2-1 defeat keeps them in with a chance of making the Final.
Derby on the other hand are fully focused on picking up a league points and have climbed to second – five points ahead of the Robins. I'd have liked bigger than 21-20 but bookies expect a home win.
Other games to look at Hertha Berlin v Dortmund in Bundesliga, Caen v Marseille in Ligue 1 and Porto v Tondela in Portugal.
There are also Jupiler league games so could be a good night for those who like goals and there are plenty of tips on the site with the games at Almere, De Graafschap and Dordrecht the ones favoured.
I've not had time to study goals bets as I've been concentrating on Saturday's card but I've picked out a double – which was a treble – and decided to chance Derby as the Super Single.
Start with Marseille at Caen where locals are more worried this season about losing the Bayeaux Tapestry than going down. The Normandy men sit mid-table but have lost five in a row at home to Marseille who have climbed to third on a run four wins in row while Caen have lost three out of four. Just under evens on the away is a decent price.
Add Sporting and again going by form and stats they should win at Setubal. They have won on their last four trips and taken maximum points from four of the last five.
I was going to complete the treble with Cove Rangers at Formartine in the all-Highland League Scottish Cup tie but as I placed the bet it was called off – there could be a few more casaulties tomorrow.
