It was a case of double devastation on Tuesday night as we were, agonisingly, just a goal away from making profit from two separate markets.
Man City have been scoring for fun this season but they were one short of what I needed to land the 7/2 Mixed Multiple, which was really disappointing considering they had their big guns on.
And another team who have been banging them in this campaign, Wycombe, failed to score at Accrington leaving me just one goal short of land the 6/1 BTTS Acca.
Brentford and Bristol City let me down at home to Burton and Preston in the 8/1 Win 5fold, which I was really confident about, so I’ve gone for a really short priced one this weekend which I fancy to earn some lovely points back.
Man United and Spurs should comfortably see off Brighton and mangerless West Brom respectively at home in the Premier League, and then I fancy Wolves to do the same to Bolton.
For the last two selections I’ve gone for Draw No Bet just in case, but I still strongly fancy Fulham – fresh from a crazy 5-4 win at Sheffield United in midweek – to see off Millwall, and in-form Blackburn to beat Bristol Rovers in League One.
For this weekend’s Mixed Multiple, I’m heading over to Spain, France and Italy – and it should give us something to play for on Sunday, should Real Madrid prevail comfortably over Malaga on Saturday.
I’m plumping for wins for Juventus over Crotone and Lazio against Fiorentina, and then need both teams to score in two European crunch games as Valencia host Barcelona in Spain, and Monaco take on PSG in France.
The stakes for the Draw Double and Lucas Joao are slightly reduced this week because I’m more confident of the Win 5fold and Mixed Multiple bets landing, so have stuck more on them.
Elsewhere, I really like the look of the odds on the BTTS Acca and am encouraged after going so close on Tuesday.
In a first for the season the Lucas Joao could even roll over to Sunday if Bristol City and Notts County play their part on Saturday.
The big match of the weekend sees Liverpool take on Chelsea at Anfield and you can see my tips for that one in this week’s Big Match Preview right here.
Good luck if you’re getting involved!
