Quite a poor weekend – so much promise but the games not going the way we expected with some shock results, red cards and dreadful performances. Decent weekend on the Horse Racing with several high priced winners, and 3/4 on the BTTS Acca from Kieron – while Jamie picked some nice winners in his Rugby World Cup tips.
Moving onto today – one of the value tips so far this season for me if you look at the stats, with a 2nd tip that I think is very likely:
1. Livorno Win @ 13/10 vs Ternana (1930 KO, Serie B – NAP)
Livorno have won 3/3 so far, scoring 9 goals in the process and conceding just three. They are top of the league and started in a very good fashion as they look to return to the Serie A! Ternana are bottom, 2 losses in 3 games and 5 conceded with just one scored. Looking back to last season and it just gets better! 4-1 and 3-0 wins for Livorno – and over the past 5 meetings, 4 wins for Livorno. No idea how this is 13/10, but taking advantage of it!
2. Ranheim-Brann BTTS + Over 2.5 Goals @ 1/1 (Norwegian Division 1, 1800 KO)
Ranheim are in very good home form, winning 4 of the last 5 and scoring 14 while doing so – also beating Sogndal, who are league leaders. They face a Brann side who are unbeaten away in around 7 games, but with the potential to score a few goals. In their only two meetings on record (last season) the games ended 4-1 and 4-2 to Brann. For me this should be a high scoring game!
If you fancy a very risky double then Livorno -1 Goal Handicap @ 7/2 + Brann-Ranheim Over 4.5 Goals @ 5/1 pays a total of 26/1 – while the smaller double above pays around 4/1.
Coming up later we have the Monthly Review for August – not the best on record but the usual when it comes to the start of season form not surprising. It only gets better as we have proven in the last couple of weeks!
