Poor day yesterday on my side of things – just 1/4, with Motherwell -1 Corner landing @ 13/10. At Madrid scored 2 early goals, and after that were very poor for much of the game. QPR-Villa had just one too many corners, while Blackpool-Reading had 2 too many corners Jamie had a good night, with Will Grigg 2+ @ 5/1 (A/T @ Evens), Benteke @ 11/8 as well as Charlie Austin @ 17/10.
Today I’m sticking with the usual markets – there are a lot of cup games on, and I have done my best to avoid the vast majority. Here’s my 4 picks for the day:
1. Zenit St Petersburg Win @ Evens vs Terek Grozni (1545 KO) – Russian Premier League
Zenit are in great form at home, but not so good away – 3 wins in 5, and just 4 goals scored, 2 conceded. Terek are in pretty poor form at home, with 3 losses to nil in their last 5, and just 2 goals scored, 4 conceded. Can see this being a low scoring game, with a few of Zenit’s better players winning the game for them.
2. Udinese Win @ 11/10 vs Parma (1730 KO) – Italian Serie A
This one is not going off form, but more a feeling. Parma have lost 4/5 at home, scoring just one. Udinese have won 1/5 away from home, and drawn a further two. They won the game earlier in the season 4-2. I can see a very low scoring game, with Udinese and Di Natale sealing a small 1/2-0 win.
3. Hibernian -1 Goal Handicap @ 6/5 vs Dumbarton (1945 KO) – Scottish Championship
Hibs have won 2 of the 3 meetings this season by at least -1 (3-0 and 6-3), and have won 3 of their last 5 away games by -1. Dumbarton are a really iffy team – beating the likes of Alloa and Falkirk, but then losing to Livingston and Cowdenbeath, who are both awful. Hibs lost ground on Rangers for 2nd on the weekend, so will be looking to make amends in this game.
4. Real Madrid Win Both Halves @ 11/10 vs Vallecano (2100 KO) – Spanish La Liga
Vallecano have actually been very good recently, with 4 wins from 5 both home and overall. Real blew Granada away the other day, winning 9-1. They are trailing Barcelona by several points now, so will have to keep up those performances. The Galactico’s have won 5/5 vs Vallecano, scoring 17. They have scored 5 each in their last 2 games against them. Win Both Halves looks decent value @ 11/10.
This pays the usual 20/1 ish (depending on who you bet with). This price is with William Hill, and the markets should be openly available with pretty much all bookies, unlike today’s bet which was a bit specific, so apologies for that!
