WHAT a week it's been for punters – it's been very profitable and I'm focusing on my usual French Ligue 2 matches hoping to continue to swell the coffers.
Valenciennes v Brest (7pm)
There will be few teams in European football at the moment who can match Brest's impressive run of form. Five consecutive wins in the league, 14 goals scored and now just two points behind league leaders Metz.
Only Metz have scored more goals than them and they travel to play a Valenciennes side who are leaking goals for fun at the moment.
Despite being well clear of the bottom teams, they have the worst defensive record in the league and have shipped 14 goals in their last 6 games.
They conceded 3 or more in 4 of those games against sides who are nowhere near as good as this Brest team offensively and that must be a real concern as the league’s best side at the moment roll into town.
With just one win in their last 8 matches and with Brest boasting the league’s top goalscorer in Gaetan Charbonnier (8 goals this season already and has 5 in his last 4 games) you have to fear for the hosts.
Brest don't keep many clean sheets though (conceded in 9 of their last 11 matches) and with Valenciennes at home, there’s no reason why they can’t get on the scoresheet.
I think we'll see both sides contributing to goals and that should see us on our way to over 2.5 goals landing.

Don't forget the usual Skybet specials in Ligue 2 – it's a really attractive card tonight (which it hasn't been over the last few weeks) and I think we'll see plenty of goals based on the fixtures.
Will be on the usual goal in the first half of all 8 games and over 1.5 match goals but the other market I like tonight is total match goals across all 8 games, it's priced up at 11-8 for 21+ goals and I'll be on it.
