IT was a pretty decent Tuesday night even if it could have been better.
My Super Single of Ross County draw no bet was a 19-20 winner and having toyed with the taking Motherwell I’d have been less than chuffed if they hadn’t beaten St Johnstone.
I took Well on a 12-1 Trixie with Bristol City and Malaga so two correct made a small profit. The over 2.5 goals treble went down at the first hurdle as Wolfsburg only beat Freiburg 1-0 in the German Cup.
For my Daily Record column on Wednesday I’ve once again focused on the Scottish Premiership and I’m tempted by Dundee at home to Dundee United.
November 5, 2004 was the last time Dundee won this derby – and it’s been eight damaging defeats and two draws since. But tonight they’ll believe this is their best chance of setting the record straight against a side who have suffered seven defeats in nine.
Saturday’s loss at home to Ross County was the latest damp squib for Jackie McNamara’s men and the boss is caught up in an ugly row with fans about his cut of transfer fees.
It’s business as usual for Dundee who are eyeing a top-six slot after two defeats in 12 and if Dee believe it they can win this. I’m taking a chance on them at a best 7-4 at Betfred.
There have been 14 goals in three meetings this season so stats suggest over 2.5 at 17-20 with McBookie.
Celtic should march on towards the title with a straightforward win against Partick Thistle. The Hoops are no bigger than 1-5 so for some value consider Celtic minus one at 1-2 with Sportingbet.
Aberdeen dropped two more points at home to Partick at the weekend and have another test in the shape of Inverness and a draw is possible between two off-form sides.
In the Championship back Hearts to be stung by criticism of their display against Rangers and beat Alloa. They are short again at 3-10 so try the Jambos minus two Asian Handicap at 5-4 with Bet365. Stake back if they win by two.
Big game in England is the FA Cup quarter-final replay between Blackburn and Liverpool and I’d rather look at a goals bet than the Anfield men at 4-6 with William Hill.
There are plenty of big European games to look at and I’ll be checking stats and team news before putting up tips around lunchtime.
