EUROPA LEAGUE betting is fraught with danger. Take the likes of Udinese and Spurs – two teams who regard the bread and butter of their leagues as more important than a run in a secondary European tournament.
And they're not the only ones. Throughout tonight's card stars will be dropped as quickly as Carlos Tevez's wage packet so check team news where possible.
Udinese would have been one of my first picks at Celtic but the Italians will put out a young side missing the likes of Antonio Di Natale, Gabiel Torje and Maurizio Domizzi.
Diego Fabbrini or fellow youngster Almen Abdi could be the lone frontman and they won't worry a Celtic defence who have been bombscares in recent weeks.
Udinese are a biggest 13-8 with William Hill and Chandler while the draw is 23-10 (various).
Celtic are a best 9-5 at boylesports and it could be a night of few chances so consider under three goals at 4-5 with Blue Square.
Spurs should see off Shamrock Rovers but the Irishmen will defend for their lives and under 2.5 goals at 15-8 with Coral has a chance.
The Londoners are just 1-7 with Coral and Chandler but remember it was a second string who started at home to Hearts and were held 0-0.
Stoke look best bet of the English teams and are 10-11 with the likes of Hills to beat Besiktas.
The Turks are a quality side who won their opener 5-1 against Maccabi Tel Aviv but they maybe lack the strength to cope with powerful opponents.
Besiktas' spine is filled with Portuguese schemers such as Simao, Pepe and Hugo Almeida and they are not the biggest.
Stoke held Man Utd at the weekend with a goal from Peter Crouch and the big striker is worth a look at 13-2 with William Hill to score first.
Ladbrokes will return first-scorer stakes on all ties involving British clubs if your pick scores at any time.
Elsewhere best bets could be Twente at home to Wisla Krakow. The Dutch drew 1-1 at Fulham in their opener and have a good European home record.
Germans Schalke, under new management, should be too strong for Maccabi Haifa but are a best 1-3 with Coral and Stan James.
My Super Single is AEK Larnaca, an up and coming Cypriot side who qualifed by beating old stagers Rosenborg. They tackle a Steaua Bucharest side who have won just one of their last six against sides of the stature of Studentesc and Pandurii although they did hold Schalke 0-0.
AEK should beat a side sitting ninth in their league and without an away win this season. The Cypriots are 19-10 with William Hill.
(10-11, William Hill)
