IT wasn't the best of Saturdays but I still have three bets running as well one on the VIP tips.
Opening days are always tricky and so it proved with surprise defeats for the likes of Fulham, Blackburn and Brentford … and that was just the Championship.
Anyone doing an acca will have done well to pick a winner but my Celtic/Rangers double, Celtic/Rangers/Hibs treble and Motherwell +1, Cove and Aberdeen treble are all still alive and can all be covered if you want to go down that route. Killie not to lose pays 7-5 at Marathonbet but I'm convinced Rangers will win so letting the bets run and also confident about Aberdeen.
I need Sam Cosgrove to score first to land a 22-1 first-scorers double on the VIP tips after Mitch Megginson did the business for Cove.
Well done to all the winners on Saturday including Desmond who returned with a successful teams to score 2+ double and Greg with over 10 goals in the Scottish Premiership – he nearly saw them all himself at Celtic Park.
I'm hoping my pending bets – potentially worth around 16pts – go my way on Sunday and I've added a goals treble.
Start with over 2.5 goals at Feyenoord v Sparta Rotterdam. The home men should win this comfortably but the Dutch big guns PSV and Ajax were surprised yesterday so instead I'm backing over 2.5 goals.
Mouscron v Anderlecht has a 100 per cent record of both scoring and I'm adding both to score at Bristol City v Leeds. This should be an action-packed Championship game with Leeds hoping to make a winning start against a high-scoring City side.
I do have a Super Single though and while I need Cosgrove to score I'm backing the hotshot, who has netted in all four of Aberdeen's Euro outings, to score again at evens with McBookie.
As well as Killie v Rangers – check out SlipsTips preview here – and Aberdeen v Hearts we have the Community Shield between Man City and Liverpool at Wembley and SlipsTips has posted a separate preview. I was going to put my thoughts but there are too many doubts in my mind so I've decided not to bet on the game.
In the Championship it's Bristol City at home to title favourites Leeds and there are league games in Holland Belgium as well as the Portuguese Super Cup.
