Friday the 13th proved to be lucky on the football front with all three selections winning and the over 3.5 goals on the Le Mans- Amiens game also obliging and I know that a couple of you took that.

Unfortunately, Jim Furyk scored and played badly on a day when almost everyone else shot low and has a lot of work to do to get back into contention over the weekend. However, Kevin Na and Brandt Snedeker two of the others we discussed pre tournament moved up through the field and this is a tournament we will return to tomorrow and are far from finished with yet !

Quite a bit to get through today and I am going to put some ( evening kick offs) in a follow up email at around 14.00 UK time, sending at this time will also enable me to pass on any late news for the afternoon games.


No bet for me here, but the match is definitely not without interest following the events of midweek, which has seen a return to form for the visitors and star players David Silva and Sergio Aguero , but perhaps just as important was the loss at Wigan for Manchester United which has rekindled interest in the title race. Only three points will do for the blue half of Manchester and they know they will get chances, after winning the reverse fixture 5-1 and with the Canaries having kept just two cleansheets all season . But they will also know they are likely to be in a battle with the hosts and boss Paul Lambert, who's stock is rising on a daily basis, no great respecters of reputations. Norwich will be buoyed from the highlight of their season a famous win at White Hart Lane earlier in the week, however, despite them having two extra days of recovery time, this will be the hosts third start against a top seven side inside a week and they are bound to be feeling a little jaded, as they are still not used to that level of competition and have struggled with back to back performances after big wins this season. Also, the early lunchtime kick off might be against them. We have talked previously about how these TV kick off times favour the bigger clubs who have grown used to handling the disruption in normal matchday routine, if such a thing still exists in the EPL ! The Canaries have played five lunchtime games, all here at Carrow Road this season and collected just two points from a possible 15, the visitors have played just four, but many in recent campaigns and have won all four, scoring 16 goals in the process, including probably their two best performances of the season, huge wins at WHL and Old Trafford. They can close the gap at the top back to two points, which will put a little pressure on United who host Villa tomorrow and they could feel that with a trip to the Etihad and crunch game with City next weekend.

Five afternoon previews in this email and picks at 3.25, 2.25, 2.04 and really confident and strong selections at 1.86 and 2.0, along with a nice "suggestion" at a juicy looking odds of 11.0 .

We have done very well with the team to score "over" 1.5 goals bet this week, with Lecce and Monaco doing just that and I am out for the hat-trick in another EPL game today and that is my first bet of the afternoon fixtures ....


Back later.
