Love it or hate it, for a large number of European countries we are in the middle of a winter shutdown, including, quite unbelievably my native Scotland. Not until these leagues are back in full swing will we reap the benefits of this football section. The European leagues, more notably, the minor European leagues is where I come into my own, finding little nuggets where you wouldn’t usually look is what I specialise in. For now, let’s look for some steady profits at home with a few decent priced Euro singles and doubles thrown in……Oh and a weekly helping of Goalrush too..
Today, it doesn’t get any easier but most teams are getting over their festive hangovers and form is becoming the major factor again. Our main double pays 6/4 and really should be easy pickings.
MK DONS, generally 4/7 look a safe home bet against a Bury side who haven’t won in their last 5 (I only use the last 5 games, anything longer I feel is not current form!)
add HULL CITY, who again look a solid home option at 4/6, against a stuffy at best Wednesday side and you have a 6/4 double without even blinking.
Add a couple of Euro big guns in INTER (1/3), who need to bounce back after a poor away performance and REAL MADRID at 8/15, away to bottom of the table Osasuna and your 4fold is over 4/1. Let’s face it, this line shouldn’t have too much trouble in coming in for us.
Keep an eye on a couple of nice aways in the French Lique 1 today, LYON and LILLE are both away to lowly opposition, they can make heavy weather of these “penalty kicks” at times but with both hovering around the even money mark it could be pay to get involved.
Finally, the goalrush offering, I started with 4 and just kept adding! Unbelievably I ended up with 15 games which conceivable have a right good chance of both teams scoring. The price? Wait for it………2852/1 with Skybet! Here are the home teams:
MONTPELLIER, RENNES, VALLADOLID, ESPANYOL, BURTON, CHELTENHAM, BOURNEMOUTH, PORTSMOUTH, TRANMERE, BOLTON, BRIGHTON, CLYDE, FALKIRK, LIVINGSTON and EVERTON.
Worth even a £1 stake for a bit of sport, you just never know!!!
Good luck all!!
