WHY is it when you toss the coin to pick a tip it always ends on the wrong side.
For my Super Single yesterday it was between Harry Kane and Romelu Lukaku to score – and we know what happened.
Heads Kane, tails Lukaku. I was quite happy with heads and planned to put any Kane winnings on the Man United new boy.
The Spurs striker had a quiet game at Newcastle until the final of minute of injury time. He had his chance but hit the post and seconds found the net but a team-mate was offside.
His miss beat the Super Single and the Daily Double of Spurs to win and over 2.5 match goals and Monaco.
Well done to all the winners yesterday including those who profited on dramatic Super Cup games in Italy and Spain. And cheers to Greg for his tips on Fana v Odd 11 earlier.
Scott Allot's 3-1 Euro treble became a double with the help of the Nou Camp match and I included goals in the games on the daily double for the app which is showing something like a 70 per cent win rate.
Meanwhile, my antepost tips Manchester City have been cut from 13-8 at the start of the season to 11-8 with William Hill after the opening weekend of the Premier League. Chelsea are big losers drifting from 7-2 to 6-1.
At the bottom Huddersfield remain odds on for the drop but are 10-11 now from 8-13.
Lukaku, who I backed for the Golden Boot, has stolen a march on a lot of his rivals for top scorer and has been cut from 4-1 to 5-2 while Kane is 4-1 from 3-1.
After winning the title last season Antonio Conte is 6-1 fourth favourite to be the first manager to leave his job.
It's been a busy weekend and it will be another busy week but fairly quiet tonight. Having trawled the card I'm putting up a treble.
Start with Valerenga at home to Tromso. Ronny Deila's side have been in decent form – one defeat in 11 and that was at the Stomsgodset club he left to join Celtic – and are now four points clear of safety with two games in hand.
They are at home to basement boys Tromso who have lost five of their last six and are now five points adrift of the relegation play-off place. Valerenga have won eight of nine at home to Tromso and should triumph again.
Benfica have started with two 3-1 wins in the Super Cup and league. They head to a Chaves side who lost just three at home last season but one was a 2-0 defeat to the Lisbon giants. Benfica also beat them at home and should pick up the points here even without striker Kostas Mitroglou.
Complete the treble with Hertha Berlin at Hansa Rostock in the German Cup. This is probably the riskiest part simply because it's a knockout game ahead of the Bundesliga kick-off.
However, there weren't many shocks in the cup at the weekend and Hertha usually take this tournament seriously as they'd love to reach the final that's played in their own stadium. They've been disappointed to lose to Borussia Dortmund in the past two seasons and will expect to beat a third division side that's kicked off with seven points from four games.
