North of the border, Hibernian and Dundee United meet again in their Scottish cup replay after drawing 2-2 at Tannadice 9 days ago. Should be another cracking game with goals expected.
IT's the first busy Tuesday card of the year and the English league fixtures. The Championship, League One and Two dominate what looks a tricky set of games for punters.
There's also English League cup action with the Semifinal 2nd Leg between Aston Villa and Leicester, which personally I feel is best left alone.
Hibernian vs Dundee United (7.45pm)
I tipped over 2.5 goals in the first game and it didn't disappoint as the sides fought out a 2-2 draw. Hibs had more of the play but as so often has been the case this season, defensive lapses have seen them suffer as United scored from really their only two clear cut chances.
I've been really ranting on all season about how poor defensively Hibs have been and with both Porteous and Naismith out long term injured, I was stunned they kept a clean sheet at Motherwell on Saturday.
I say I was stunned as they have conceded in 22 of their 27 matches in all competition this season and have kept just 2 clean sheets in 12 home matches.
Ross County, Livingston, St Johnstone, Kilmarnock and Hearts have ALL found the net twice in their visit to Easter Road this season and it's becoming a real problem for Jack Ross's side.
Tonight all eyes again will be on United ‘s 26 goal man Lawrence Shankland, he just needs a glimpse of goal and he produces the goods.
Attacking wise though Hibs are in terrific shape, Martin Boyle has been excellent recently, throw in Kamberi, Doige and Allen and you have to fancy them to progress. I just can't see them keeping a clean sheet though and that makes over 2.5 goals look really appealing.
Hibs vs Dundee United Tips:
- Over 2.5 match goals
- 3/4 (Marathonbet) (NAP)
English League 2 Goals:
I've been desperately close on 4 occasions over the last 2 months on over 1.5 goals in all League two matches at odds of 28/1+. Saturday past was the latest one with 10 of the 11 matches seeing 2 or more goals (0-0 at Exeter ), week before that it was 9 out of 12 and even more agonising was the 11 out of 12 the previous week.
There is a full card tonight with 12 games being played and the odds on firs half goals and over 1.5 goals are huge
You can back all 12 matches over 1.5 goals at 44/1 and over 0.5 first half goals pays a whooping 100/1. Both worth a punt
Total Goals also looks appealing – Skybet are offering 4/5 on 31+ which gives a fair bit of leeway and with 12 games being plated 3 of 4 of them are sure to see 4+ goals, especially with a number of the leagues weakest sides defensively, on the road.
- 31+ goals to be scored 4/5 (Skybet)
- A goal in the first half of all 12 games 100/1 (Ladbrokes)
- Over 1.5 goals in all 12 games 44/1 (Redzone)
