After a decent showing last weekend I totally tanked in the Champions League as none of my three picks came in.
Credit to Chelsea, I didn’t think they had that performance in them. As for Juventus and Barcelona… I should have listened to my own advice and not backed teams who have already qualified.
Common sense says I should give up on these betting pieces, at least for the time being, but the true gambler doesn’t know when to quit – besides it has been a quiet week at Gonzo Towers and I need to throw a bit more content up to keep the all powerful Google keen.
Crystal Palace v Southampton
I’ll be commentating on this game tomorrow so I’ve had a little think about it and I reckon Palace might just take all three points. Both sides have endured mixed form of late and it really could go either way but the return of Wilfried Zaha from suspension might just swing this one in the Eagles’ favour.
Southampton do know where the goal is though and that’s why I’m going for a Palace win with both teams to score at a top price of 9/2.
MK Dons v Ipswich
The Championship’s early kick off sees a resurgent Ipswich head to a stuttering MK Dons so I’m going to go with the away side in this one. The Tractor Boys have managed eight goals in their last two away games and at a top price of 13/10 I’ll be backing them.
Las Palmas v Real Betis
I’m going to delve into La Liga for my last pick as Real Betis take on rock bottom Las Palmas. Betis have managed four wins in their last five away games, while Las Palmas have won just twice in seven attempts at home in Spain’s top flight this season. Betis are a top price 14/5, not too shabby all things considered.
As a treble that pays out at around 50/1, so as usual I’ll be putting a one point stake on each selection as a single and a one point stake on the treble.
Current profit/loss: -15.44 from 33 points spent.
This is a bet diary rather than tips and if you choose to follow me that’s on you, although I’d be amazed if anyone did considering my record of late.
