7:45pm - Atl Madrid v Leverkusen  - 1.74 home

Profitable In-Play Opportunities

  • Leverkusen did not concede an  away goal so this is great platform for them today. if they score, Madrid need 3 to win.
  • Madrid are really good at home, Leverkusen are not conceding more than 1 recently away. This should be a very tight match.
  • Tough to figure out how the match will be played as the first goal is critical.
COMMENT : The first goal was critical and came in the 27th minute for the home side, pushing this match to extra time and penalties. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

7:45pm - Bristol City v Crewe  - 1.38 home

Profitable In-Play Opportunities

  • This could be a 2nd half match so no surprises if 0-0 at halftime. Crewe overwhelmingly concede 2nd half away from home.
  • When we hit March and your Bristol's, Juventus's and NEC's have built up a solid lead at the top of their respective leagues, the C word does come into play - complacency .
  • With Bristol City keeping clean sheets, a hope they simply out-score Crewe . Crewe have lost away to top 10 sides and don't tend to score more than 1 goal away. So if they lead, I would lay them in the expectation that the next goal scored ( if any) comes from Bristol City.
COMMENT : - a 3-0 home win and no real DRT ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

7:45pm - Monaco v Arsenal  - 2.32 away

Profitable In-Play Opportunities

  • The value is in backing Arsenal to qualify here and in a 0-2 scoreline. That is also the optimist's route.
  • Quite simply Arsenal must not concede and must score 2 to go through in the simplest way possible.
  • Monaco's defence, though, is legendary and they will be very tough to beat.  Back 0-0 pre-match and hope for a concerted period of 0-0.
COMMENT : I got the 0-2 scoreline but Arsenal did not qualify. Of course, Arsenal needed to score 3. My error, apologies.  The first goal came in the 36th minute so was close to that 0-0 pre match trade coming in at halftime. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

7:45pm - Raith v Hearts  - 1.3 away

Profitable In-Play Opportunities

  • The nearer we get to the end of the season, the more I am concerned with complacency from Hearts, particularly away from home. Such is their lead at the top, they can afford to lose and draw matches.
  • But Raith have not beaten Hibs, Hearts and Rangers this season , the last 4 scorelines were 1-0, 1-3, 1-1, 1-2. 3 of those very tight affairs.
  • Let's hope Raith score again and first. I would back Hearts if Raith scored first
  • Over 2.5 goals is highly likely so back over 2.5 goals if the match happens to be 0-0 at halftime
  COMMENT + 1-3 win for Hearts . Over 2.5 goals came in.  Did you lay the late 1-1? The winners came post 79th minute ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

7:45pm - Rangers v Alloa  - 1.27 home

Profitable In-Play Opportunities

  • Alloa make themselves tough to beat yet lack the firepower to take advantage of relatively good defence. They seem " valiant' losers and could see teams taking until the 2nd half to break them down. Yet it seems inevitable.
  • I will " do a Roma" today and take a chance on laying the draw with Rangers recently having 4 consecutive draws.  At their best, Rangers should match Hibs and Hearts and win 2-0, yet this is not a Rangers at their best.
  • 1-0, 2-0 looks the 2 scorelines today. 1-1 hangs over them like Damocles sword but I hope Alloa's inability to score in 10 of their last 14 returns today
  • A 0-0 at halftime really would not surprise today .
COMMENT - Draw-itis remains. IT was 0-0 at halftime., Hope you profited from the 2nd half goals. Alloa scored first for a nice and simple DRT as Rangers led 2-1 at some stage. the match ended 2-2 with the 4th goal an 85th minute goal. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
