Jul 25: Mr Fixit’s Top Tips

MY only Sunday tip was a Top Treble that landed at 16-5. As with many bets there was an element of luck about it as I toyed with taking both to score at Basel v Sion before choosing over 2.5 goals and it ended 3-0 to the Swiss champions. The other bets were both to score at Start v Valerenga (2-4) […]

Jul 25: Rangers v Stranraer Betting Preview

Rangers have enjoyed the Betfred Cup more than most and are the only side to have won their first three games. Motherwell apart they haven’t been tested and the only criticism of Mark Warburton’s men is they should have beaten Annan and East Stirling much more convincingly. Three clean sheets out of three will have cheered a boss whose defence last […]

MY £20 to £250 challenge suffered a scare before bet No.5 was voided. After four wins in a row I took FH -2 AH after reading HullShaker’s excellent write-up on the game against Throttur. I played it more conservatively than him and in the end my bet was voided as it finished 2-0. Monday’s pretty quiet but I’ve decided to go with […]

IT was a day of near misses on Saturday although that wasn’t the case with the Super Single. St Mirren draw no bet flopped as the Buddies crashed 3-0 at Hamilton but I’ll take solace from the fact the bloke on Radio Scotland said it was closer than the score suggested. Ross County drew with Raith to beat my Betfred […]

CHINA is the destination for Jordan’s Sunday tips and he’s spotted some value as he goes for two wins in a row. A 90th-minute strike by Malmo’s Vidar Kjartansson at home to Kalmar brought up Saturday’s 6-5 tip – and what a lovely late goal that was. Jordan says: “I’m staking higher as I did last weekend where I’m more confident […]

JORDAN’S still wondering how the both to score tip he put up on Thursday didn’t come in. He says: “Somehow Cork kept Hacken’s kitchen sink out of the net but it was still profit for the day from the Shenua goal in China. “Today I’m looking at Sweden where last time I bet this man to score he failed to […]

IT was a decent day with my Super Single winning, Greg’s bets coming up – and of course anyone following harrybaines’ challenges will be stinking rich. I couldn’t see much I liked but took “bankers” Brann and Rijeka – who won by an aggregate of 10-1 – and added Rangers -1 at East Stirling. It was a conservative bet paying 6-5 […]

SCOTLAND’S champions meet England’s champions live in Sky on Saturday – but it’s difficult to get too excited about it. For Celtic the game comes four days before a massive Champions League tie away to Astana and their full focus should on that one.

SAM ALLARDYCE is 8-1 with Coral to win a major tournament with England after being confirmed as manager. The Three Lions are 14-1 to lift the 2018 World Cup – and even if they added a zero to that I’d not be interested. I’m not sure what to make of the appointment although it seems at best a sideways step […]
