SCOTTISH football is much maligned but hopefully this week's European results showed it's not as bad as some people think.

Rangers and Hibs both notched Europa League wins to add to Celtic's Champions League success while Aberdeen played well to hold Burnley in the Battle of Britain clash.

The Dons are likely to be heading out but will put up a fight at Turf Moor and the main difference between Scottish and English football is the TV billions paid out to clubs.

I just put up a double last night but it was a winning one at 11-5 thanks to The New Saints and btts at Hibs v Asteras. That's 22 goals in Hibs' three Euro ties this season and the promise of plenty more in Greece next week.

Tonight sees the start of some smaller European leagues but none I focus on. I've finished writing Saturday's column for the Daily Record but as Greg has filed French Ligue 2 tips that's what I'm going with.

    @kf wow well done . thats some return for a small stake. Shows you don’t have to bet big to reap big rewards. @ Mr fixit. Well done to all the Scottish clubs in Europe this last few nights. Had a single bet win on Hibernian. My late father’s team. He would have been proud of that comeback tonight.

    • Mr Fixit 4 years ago

      Well done – did your dad play many games for them?

  4. mr boofle 4 years ago

    He was just a fan Mr.f. glad he loved long enough to see them lift the Scottish cup. Good luck to the bankies this season by the way.

    • ged72 4 years ago

      I think KF does over 2.5 match goals for each game

  8. maccathered 4 years ago

    No joy in Aberdeen for Burnley,should get the job done at home,only just seen the results believe it or not,well done kf nice shooting,what i can’t understand though is why you do a goliath bet when cashout is available,surely sticking a tenner on rather than 50 quid would be more profitable.

    • mr_chips 4 years ago

      Both teams to score was the bet as per the posts I gave a couple of days ago rather than the away win.

      The EPL hype had to be taken in context as to Aberdeen’s strong Euro home form, fitness and Burnley’s travel issues. Just 1 loss in 12 Euro homes now.

      Advantage Burnley but think Aberdeen will score there too.

    • maccathered 4 years ago

      Well done.

    Aberdeen will beat Burnley on away goals, Burnley are a poor footballing side and if Aberdeen play to their strengths they could cover the handicap

    • Mr Fixit 4 years ago

      Don’t agree – think Burnley will win.

    • alex_mufc83 4 years ago

      Have to agree with Mr F here. Burnley at home will be a lot tougher.

    • sless1903 4 years ago

      Was at the game last night and Burnley were poor. Never really troubled Aberdeen at all. For a team that cost over £50m I wasn’t impressed at all. Yes it will be tougher at Turf Moor but we’ve given ourselves a chance.

    • Mr Fixit 4 years ago

      By all accounts Aberdeen did well but remember Burnley are a bit behind in terms of prep and can only get better.
      Scottish teams are fully aware how difficult it is to get ready for such an early start.

  20. hairyheid 4 years ago

    One that might be worth a wee dabble tonight…
    Nancy to win and btts 17-5
    1St game but fancy newly promoted Beziers to grab a goal but Nancy are usually pretty decent at home…17-5 (small stakes). Also fancy Gent to score tonight at 2-5. I’m adding both in to a long shot acca:
    Nancy to win and btts 17-5
    Braga v Celta btts 8-11
    Gent to score 2-5
    Swindon O2.5Mgls (leroy) 2-5
    Yankees -1.5 (tennisace) 20-29
    Dodgers -1.5 (tennisace) 21-20
    Over 50-1 (small stakes)
    Good luck all ?

    • hairyheid 4 years ago

      Red card bust any chance for Nancy…not sure they were good enough at any rate according to the stats. Beziers grabbed their goal as did Gent…went for remainder in-play/still to play after red card…

    • Mr Fixit 4 years ago

      As Greg said low stakes for now and could be a slow start. Always tough first few weeks of any league.

  22. GregBrowning 4 years ago

    Afternoon gents

    Only one league that matters on a Friday night and tonight see’s it’s return

    ??⚽️French Ligue 2 ⚽️??

    Was a terrific league to bet on again last season will be be my main focus on Friday.

    The start of the season is always tough to bet on and it takes a good few weeks to work out where to go and who to back. From What I’ve read there has been a lot of movement this summer with some teams under going complete overhauls.

    Probably best keeping stakes small tonight.

    Nancy v AS Beziers KO 7pm

    The hosts welcome newcomers AS Beziers and thay’ll be looking to improve on last seasons disappointing finish. They really struggled for goals last season but have kept most of last seasons squad and defensive don’t ship too many goals.

    Their price has drifted quite a bit and they are almost evens against a newly promoted side who on paper have one of the weakest squads in the league

    Back Nancy to win 10/11 (William Hill)

    Looks like there could be some value in the Icelandic u19 game tonight. HK/Ymir v Leiknir/KB. The home team (3rd) are heavy favourites with the away team (7th) sitting at 12/1 just now. In recent weeks Leiknir have put 4 past the teams in 2nd and 4th in the league. HK have also conceded against the three teams sitting below Leiknir in the table. I’m sure HK will prove to strong for the visitors but fancy Leiknir to be able to get on the scoresheet.

    I said the Saders would take the title & I’m sticking to it. Canes are the only team that can possibly come close but not away from home. They should keep it close though as well as the Tahs in the other semi. Fully expecting a Saders/Lions final though.

    Tahs penalty converted before 29min (17/20)

    Evening gents,

    Been a poor few days and made worse by 2 days with the kids at Alton Towers…f*ck me – feel like I’ve been shafted in a business deal I’ve parted with that much money…I’m definitely in the wrong game and need to start a Theme Park up ?

    Night Owl…

    Two singles and a double – just in and no time for reasoning but the Brasilian Serie B is a btts haven and both teams are more than capable of a goal whilst the Paraguayan pick looks a really tempting price:

    AVAÍ VS. CSA (2315 KO):




    BTTS DOUBLE…3.03/1

    Best of luck ??
