TUESDAY was action-packed and while it was profitable it could have been so much better.
My 8-1 Top Treble was winning going in to injury time at Plymouth – but with the Wycombe game delayed – so I advised cover on Crawley to score at 8-1 and they did equalise.
And the 27-1 moneyback fivefold was up when Derby led at Luton so cover or cashout available but with the Hatters fighting back I had to settle for the stake back as a free bet.
Plenty of winners on the site including Scott with an 11-10 members bet – his fifth win out of six – Greg and maccathered who backed Aston Villa to KO Leicester.
I tipped the Foxes and they had plenty of chances to win but paid right at the death for a bit of defensive slackness.
Villa are likely to meet Man City who take a 3-1 lead into tonight’s other Carabao Cup semi-final at home to Man United and for me there’s no way back for the Old Trafford men. I don’t like backing sides who don’t need to win but City should ease through.
Liverpool are set to storm 19 points clear of City at the top of the Premier League by winning their game in hand at West Ham.
And in Scotland we have Rangers v Ross County and St Johnstone v Celtic as the battle for the Premiership continues. I’ve posted a separate Scottish preview and with time running out to tackle the Super Single losses I can’t resist a punt on ban-free Alfredo Morelos to score first at 11-4 with bet365.
Someone mentioned the absence of Bonkers Bets recently so how about this one – Morelos and Celtic’s Odsonne Edouard both to score first. The double pays just over 15-1 at bet365.
Elsewhere there are a couple of League One games and cup clashes in Spain, France and Italy. Sunderland should see off a Tranmere side that’s bound to be weary after their cup exploits but they are really short at about 4-6.
Shrewsbury, fresh from their draw against Liverpool, face a tough trip to Gillingham and be interesting to see how they perform with a trip to Anfield on the horizon.
Earlier I said I was thinking about a moneyback fivefold on Celtic, Liverpool, Man City, Lille at Epinal and Inter at home to Fiorentina. In the end I’ve decided to go with Real Madrid at Real Zaragoza in the Cup instead if Inter – still pays 17-5 at McBookie.
