IT'S been a busy week and a rollercoaster month but Wednesday was one of those where focusing on cards not goals proved profitable.
Greg landed four-based card bets – three singles and an 11-1 double – in the Hearts v Celtic game. Fraser51 trumped that with four named players to be booked landing at 80-1 before half-time.
In fact looking at the comments I can't believe the number of people who won on bookings-based bets and BetBuilders so well done everyone. That was a good team effort.
I tipped a red card at Tynecastle in my Scottish tips preview and a Super Single on Celtic's Scott Brown to be booked put me in profit for the month.
As far as results went Celtic's last-gasp winner at Hearts landed my 3-1 goals treble but the other treble was let down by a lack of goals at the Etihad.
Well done to all the other winners including HullShaker and Scott who had two out of three winners on his Hearts v Celtic preview.
So we reach the end of the month and unfortunately there isn't much to look at on Thursday – Valencia v Real Betis in the Spanish Cup and Willem v AZ in Dutch Cup – and little else.
The winners of the Valencia – it's tied at 2-2 after the first leg – will face Barcelona in the final and you have to fancy the home men who are unbeaten in nine although isn't out of the question. Valencia are a best 3-4 at bet365 to win in 90 minutes but the sides fought out a 0-0 stalemate at the Mestalla in the league.
In the Dutch semis AZ are massive favourites at 8-11 despite losing 2-1 at Willem in the league on Sunday. Before that AZ were on a great run of six wins but look short and I'd rather take both to score at the same price.
The Super Single total I'll leave at +1.1pts and I'd love to do a treble that would wipe out the acca losses which have been vastly reduced in the last week or so.
I'm adding both to score in the Swiss Cup tie between Thun and Lugano as suggested by mr h. On the h2h 18 of the last 19 meetings have brought up btts and that's good enough for me.
There are darts tips from lockuptipster and I'm nicking Gerwyn Price to beat guest Luke Humphries who is filling in this week for Gary Anderson. Price won two events over the weekend and is in great form.
At a smaller price I'm on Michael van Gerwen to continue his charge to the play-offs by seeing off James Wade.
- Thun v Lugano btts (6.30pm)
- Willem v AZ btts (7.45pm)
- Valencia (8pm)
- Price to beat Humphries (7.15pm)
- Van Gerwen to beat Wade (9.40pm)
- (11-2, Betway)
