I do not have any news for today's fairly uninspiring football programme, but have already placed a number of bets for tomorrow's action. All being well, I will post 3-4 of these in the blog in the next 24 hours and will start with a few words about one of them today.
First, a word of warning, this bet might seriously damage your wealth ! "Under"bets and me go together like oil and water, it is just not a good mix, which normally results in two goals before I can get to my seat after switching the television on. Therefore, I keep them to a minimum and try to resist the temptation, but sometimes it is too much !
So, here we go. I like the "under" 2.75 goal line in the Glasgow Rangers-Hearts SPL game tomorrow.The hosts have horrendous problems upfront with Boyd, Miller, Novo, Naismith and Beasley all carrying knocks, Lafferty is set to play as the lone striker and he missed out on the midweek cup tie against Hamilton with flu ! Rangers could not find a goal in 90 minutes that night, although, to be fair, they had plenty of chances and did notch two in extra time. However, the squad has played a lot of football recently and is severely stretched at the moment.
Unless one of the above named players makes a late recovery, the men available to Walter Smith have contributed just 5 of Rangers last 33 goals in the SPL.
Hearts like to keep things tight, it is 20 games since they have been involved in a match containing more than three goals and they have not conceded more than two in any domestic outing this season. Given the team news, this looks a very solid "under" bet to me.
6 points "under" 2.75 goals 1.94 asian line ......1.88 + is good enough.
