This time last week I was still in search of a big Lucas Joao winner to turn the season around – and thankfully it came on Tuesday!
The 431/1 Lucas Joao landed – which you can read more about in last week’s weekend 4-4-2 post – thanks to Bristol Rovers, Wycombe, Rotherham and Shrewsbury all winning while conceding, but it felt just as good seeing all the tweets from everyone who had backed the bet.
Both the 21/4 Mixed Multiple and my 6/5 single on Plymouth also prevailed on Tuesday, and I was so close to landing a full sweep with the 7/2 BTTS Treble missing out by just one Porto goal.
The 12/1 Win 5fold lost out after Wigan were defeated at home to Blackpool, which was a shock because the Latics looked to be one of the main bankers out of the five selections.
I was hoping to continue the incredible midweek points return on the weekend but fate threw up the FA Cup fixture list, making it tricky to find much I wanted to back.
With the Win 5fold scrapped for the Saturday it was down to an 11/2 Mixed Multiple to increase the riches, but sadly that lost out by a solitary goal.
All I needed was Fleetwood to net at Doncaster, but they couldn’t manage it. And it appears as though the Cod Army’s hierarchy were just as disappointed as us because they sacked manager Uwe Rosler shortly afterwards.
The BTTS Acca and the Lucas Joao just didn’t perform on Saturday I’m afraid, but for those who missed out on Tuesday I’m confident we can land another this season.
I’ve been close on a fair few occasions throughout the campaign and there are plenty of games still to play. You have to be patient and keep the faith!
The Champions League is back again in midweek – with Chelsea entertaining Barcelona one of the expected highlights – and there is a full Championship fixture list, so there will be another bonus tips piece.
If it’s half as profitable as last week’s midweek post then I’ll be laughing all the way to the bank!
