This is a really big betting weekend for me, I have already put up three double stakes selections for the Championship games, which kick off at lunchtime on Saturday. One is not common, two rare, three on one day........... totally unheard of, so tomorrow is going to exciting and either very profitable or expensive ! I have also found a bet at odds of 32-1 which has a very real chance of success and I will definitely post at least one of these selections on the blog tomorrow morning, provided the quotes hold up reasonably well overnight.
I must say that I enjoyed the two Europa League semi-final games between Porto and Villarreal, despite the second leg being a dead rubber, there was still plenty of entertainment and thrills on offer. The pair also provided 180 minutes of absolutely suicidal defending, going forward few teams are going to be able to compete with Porto in the Champions League next season, with the proviso that they keep their offensive stars in the summer, which is by no means certain, but they will have to tighten up considerably at the back to compete against the very best at the business end of the tournament. Having said that, this is a club that knows how to win the big european club events and they could be a big player next season as well.
