IT was a pretty quiet Monday but I managed to pick a winning treble with a little help from my friends.
Derby fan Nathan was super confident about his side winning or at least drawing at Huddersfield so I took them not to lose. Shortee made a good case for Bodo Glimt winning but again I took less risk on the double chance.
My third pick was all my own work with Djurgardens draw no bet at Elfsborg. They won 1-0 to bring up a 23-10 treble and what a nice aways treble that would have been at around 20-1.
Cheers to shortee and nathan for their good work and it's been a great start to August and it's always nice to bank some early profit as I might need it. Well done to all the other winners.
Tuesday sees the return of the Champions League qualifiers with matches including PAOK v Ajax, Dinamo Zagreb v Ferencvaros and Bruges v Dynamo Kiev. In the Europa League there are three ties including Sutjeska v Linfield.
I put up an early Super Single on Monday although it was a risky one without team news. There are first round games in the Challenge Cup on Tuesday and Lowland League title favourites Kelty Hearts make their tournament debut.
Kelty, managed by Barry Ferguson, are hugely ambitious and signed four senior players in the summer including striker Nathan Austin from Inverness. That was a bit of a coup as he's good enough to still be playing at Championship level.
Hearts have started with two league wins and as long as they go strong should beat Kilmarnock Colts. The young senior teams have mainly struggled in this competition against older and more experienced professionals. I got them at 17-10 with McBookie where they are now 21-20.
For a Top Treble I'm taking both to score at PAOK, an impressive Dinamo Zagreb to edge a home win and Red Star Belgrade draw no bet at home to Copenhagen and they'll probably need to a lead to take to Denmark.
High-scoring PAOK will be hoping to take advantage against a much-changed Ajax who have lost top stars Frenkie de Jong and Matthijs de Ligt. The Dutch drew 2-2 at the weekend and will obviously be weakened from the brilliant side that reached the semis last season.
There are also National League games and other English cup ties but that's all from me – check out the thread for other tips.
