IT'S going to be a couple of tricky weekends for punters with the FA Cup dominating today's card ahead of a break for internationals – most of them friendlies.
Salford's defeat of Notts County last night suggests there will be plenty of shocks today and avoiding them is the key for punters.
I've posted an FA Cup preview with some stats-based goals tips and team news and there are also Scottish and English league previews.
My Saturday tips will never go against what I put in the Daily Record but this weekend they're different and that will be the same in the future as we get ready to launch the new site. My Record deadline is 5pm on a Friday (which really means my articles have to be written by about 2pm) and if I'm not working on the paper I have 7-10 hours extra to do research and that can only help.
The Super Single in the Record is Livingston at Morton and it's a big call but Livi have notched superb back-to-back wins at Queen of the South (4-1) and home to Raith (3-0) and are big at 11-5 with Ladbrokes away to a Morton side whose only recent win was at struggling Dumbarton.
I'm adding a second SS on the site and it's a more confident one in Hearts, up to second in the Premiership, at home to a Hamilton side who were 4-0 down at home to St Johnstone last weekend before two late goals made the score a bit respectable. I hope both singles win but one out of two won't do any damage.
For the Top Treble I'm on National League title chasers Dover at home to Stourbridge and adding Borussia M'gladbach, who are going for seven wins in a row at home to Ingolstadt, and Bayern Munich -2AH at home to Stuttgart.
These are my main bets and all others should be done for low stakes but please don't try to do them all – and remember there are long shots in there too.
