I miss the World Cup and all the daily soccer bets.
When it comes to leagues such as the EPL, I want to wait until at least the second round of matches before betting as I want to see how the break has changed things etc. So don’t expect anything for Boxing Day.
However the Scottish Premier League has been going on so I figure I can have a look at that.
And what a finale to the World Cup that was. Just incredible. And great from a betting standpoint – especially if you bet at Bet365 like I’d mentioned previously.
Won my main bet of over 2.5 goals and BTTS at 2.60 odds, and then with Bet365s early payout I won on Argentina in 90 minutes. Love that early payout rule – you don’t use it often but when it comes in, you feel like a genius.
Awesome ending and I am glad Messi won. He deserved it.
Let’s look at the Scottish Premier League games – top two kick off in a couple hours: Confidence wise, all bets 1u unless specified otherwise and I’ll do 0.5u or 2u.
Ross County vs Rangers:
Rangers have had two games post World Cup break and our defense is depleted. Teams should know that they can come up against us and have a chance at getting a result.
Ross County generally good at scoring goals and I like them to score against us. Both Teams to Score at 1.95 for me.
Motherwell vs Kilmarnock:
We haven’t seen Motherwell play post Winter break. Kilmarnock all season brutal on the road and that continued on the 17th against Hearts. Motherwell weren’t playing great going into the break. Lafferty out for Killie is good.
You always wonder how one team can perform after the break compared to a team who has already got a game under their belts. But with Killies poor away form I am going with Motherwell to win at 1.99 odds.
Celtic vs St. Johnstone:
Not seeing anything here. Celtic have came back from the break and barely scraped a couple of wins but are creating the chances like crazy. St Johnstone have been good at scoring goals but you never know how a team lines up against Celtic especially when Celtic are at home. No bet although a lean on BTTS.
St Mirren vs Aberdeen:
We haven’t seen St. Mirren since the break. Aberdeen parked the bus in a manner Morocco would be proud of against Celtic, then went for it more against Rangers (of course). They’ll feel hard done by there.
St Mirren are an excellent home team. I’m going to go with 0.5u on the draw here at 3.30 odds. Feel both teams will cancel each other out.
Dundee Utd vs Hearts:
Hearts came back from the break strong with a big win over Killie. While Dundee Utd are playing terrible overall this season, they have actually had some solid home results lately with wins over Killie, Hibs and Aberdeen.
I like BTTS here but at 1.66 not a play. I’ll with 0.5u on Shankland to score at 2.37 – void if doesn’t start. It’s Dundee Utd he’s destined to score against them.
Hibs vs Lingston:
Both teams coming off losses to the Old Firm. Hibs you can’t give them full credit as the Rangers defense is a disaster right now.
Not seeing anything I want to bet on this one.
