Decent day yesterday – should Lazio beat Empoli we shall have a 23/1 winner (3/3 so far – Chelsea, Petrolul and Bordeaux all won), as well as a Colchester win would mean our 11/1 FA Cup 4 fold will land too (although 2 games were postponed due to pitch conditions).
Due to the Europa League games thursday, a lot of value this weekend sits in the games today – and we have a -1 4 fold accumulator that looks really good:
1. Steaua Bucharest -1 @ 6/5
2. Twente -1 @ 6/5
3. Benfica -1 @ 7/4
4. Sparta Prague -1 @ 17/10
(You can add Salzburg -1 @ Evens to add an extra 25/1)
This pays around 35/1 with William Hill (or 60/1 with Salzburg added) and all four have strong records against their opposition, with the opposition not being in the greatest of nic anyway, which helps. Those in the top 7 leagues struggle in the Europa League, especially in France and Italy, have struggled in the games proceeding the Euro games, so we have avoided. Those outside the top 7 leagues seem to have no adverse side-effects from the competition (hence Steaua, Salzburg and Sparta).
This is my final bet this weekend – and I have £5 on the 5 fold @ 60/1.
A tip worth pointing out from our selected shocks is Borrusia Moenchengladbach (5/1 vs Dortmund). They are unbeaten this season, and thats having played Bayern. Dortmund have lost 5 league games in a row, and sit 17th. Even DNB or Win or Draw are well above evens. Definitely worth having a few bob on!
Best of luck
