  1. You've got that one wrong mate, don't know exact stats off top of my head but can recall 3 in their last 7 away games which they didn't lose and that included a 0-0 draw and a 3-0 win so haven't conceded in all of their last 25.
  2. Yeah, and all ATP tour events for last 4 years.
  3. That's how doubles works all year round, except for the slams.
  4. Re: Scottish Football > September 21st & 22nd Got one this weekend, chaps. Kilmarnock (0AH) away to Partick Thistle @ 2.00 with Pinnacle Not one that has any foundation in the form book, but Killie seem to be closing in on their first win under Allan Johnston. Signs against Caley were quite encouraging last week, although they lost 2-1. They've added a bit of experience in ex-Hearts man Ismael Bouzid this week, and he might prove the steady head they're in desperate need of at the back. And in Kris Boyd at the other end, there's always the chance they'll sniff out goals. Thistle were thumped 3-0 at home to Aberdeen last week, and it looked to me like the early fizz is starting to flatten for them. They go into this as favourites, which I can't see resting too comfortably on their shoulders. Good luck everyone involved this weekend.
  5. Re: Scottish Football > 14th & 15th September One for me just now, may be back later. Aberdeen (0AH) away to Partick Thistle (2.00 with Pinnacle) Fair play to Thistle for the start they've made back in the top flight, but I think they'll struggle to score goals against the best defences in the league, and there's no doubt Aberdeen's backline is one of them. The Dons also have a problem hitting the back of the net, but they carry enough of a threat with McGinn and Hayes and they should have enough here to come away unscathed. good luck!
  6. Re: Scottish Football - 23rd & 24th August Good stuff mate, enjoy your winnings!
  7. Re: Scottish Football > 30th & 31st August Nothing from me this week. Too tight a card for my liking. Good luck those who play!
  8. Re: Scottish Football - 23rd & 24th August Been a frustrating start to the season, so hoping to wipe off a few cobwebs this weekend with two bets Motherwell v Partick Thistle: Motherwell (-0.5AH) @ 2.20 with 188Bet I think I understand why Motherwell are priced this big at home to a newly promoted side, but I still think the odds are a bit chunky. Motherwell aren't the same team as last year: they hugely miss Law's guile, Humphrey's pace and Higdon's goals. They've brought in, on paper, decent replacements, but I think the likes of Sutton, Lawson and Vigurs are a notch down in terms of quality. I like them here, though, because after last week's thumping at Caley, Stuart McCall will have had his first full week of the season to get them well drilled. Their first two games came amidst their short-lived European campaign, while McCall was away with the Scotland squad ahead of that trip to the Highlands. I'm hoping the last six days have seen him get his point across and get his new recruits fully understanding the way he wants them to go about their business. Thistle have had a fine start to the season, but I think over the course, they'll lack a genuine, consistent goal threat and while this might be tight tomorrow, I'm going for the hosts to edge it. Ross County v St Mirren: Ross County (0AH) @ 1.81 with 188 Bet There's been little to like about Ross County this season, while they continue to hunt their first point(s) of the season. Keen on them here though. Derek Adams was seething as he faced reporters after they lost 4-0 to St Johnstone last week, and I don't doubt for a second he'll have read his newly shaped squad the riot act. I'm still getting to know some of their new players, but at Celtic Park on the opening day they looked, in spells, to be a decent enough bunch. The bet is as much for County as it is against St Mirren. Sorry if I'm repeating myself from earlier posts, but I really think they're a poor side, with a manager who's living on borrowed time thanks to last season's unlikely League Cup glory. There's not a huge amount of quality there, particularly at the back, and with full draw cover on their opponents, they're always going to be worth laying on the road. Good luck to everyone involved this weekend :hope
  9. Re: Scottish Football > 16th - 17th August Frustrating weekend for me. Thistle went ahead in the 86th min last night, but were pegged back in the dying seconds for a 1-1 draw - half loss Celtic won 2-0 - win Caley-Motherwell was 2-0 at half-time but a third never arrived - loss St Mirren-Killie saw the visitors take the lead only to soon go down to 10 men before Saints levelled - push Until next weekend...
  10. Re: Scottish Football > 16th - 17th August Don't have much time, but 2 more bets for me today. St Mirren v Killie - Killie (OAH) @ 2.13 with 188Bet More a bet against the hosts here. They looked devoid of confidence and ability all over the park in the opener against Caley, I've already tipped them to go down (despite Hearts starting with a 15pt deficit) and there's nothing I can really think to say in their favour. Killie are in no great shakes either, but there's some talented young players in their group. New loan signing Jackson Irvine is very highly rated and in Kris Boyd there is always a goal threat. Inverness CT v Motherwell - Over 2.5 goals @ 1.99 with 188Bet Could be in for a classic in the Highlands this afternoon. Two sides who will be right in contention for the European places at the end of the season. Both full of attacking intent. Caley haven't conceded this season, but they'll get a tough test here and I'd expect Well to net. At the other end, Caley are full of pace and power and look to create opportunities every time they get the ball. good luck
  11. Re: Scottish Football > 16th - 17th August Two bets for now, still looking at a couple more. Partick Thistle v Hearts - Thistle -0.25AH @ 1.88 with 188 Bet (3pts) Been impressed by Thistle's start to SPL (can't get used to calling it the Premiership) life. They're full of energy and attacking intent. Last week's 3-1 win at Ross County can't be underestimated - Dingwall has long been a seriously hard place for visitors. Even against Dundee Utd the week before, Thistle's desire and enthusiasm was to be admired. Friday night at Firhill will produce a buoyant atmosphere under which the team will thrive. Hearts, meanwhile, are a shadow of the sides we've come to expect from them in recent years. Even though they won the derby last week, they rode their luck and managed to net with their only real chance of the encounter. What experience they did have in Ryan Stevenson has now been lost to injury and I think that will prove telling. Their away record has been horrible for a long time and I don't think they've got the tools to turn it around. Aberdeen v Celtic - Celtic -0.25AH @ 1.73 with 188 Bet (6pts) Other than in Old Firm games (remember them?) I don't think I've ever seen Celtic priced as big as evens to win a league game. The temptation is strong to lump on, but I've decided to approach this one with a touch more caution. Celtic's only priority right now is qualifying for the Champions League - they're off to Kazakhstan for the first leg of the final qualifying round next week - and they know they can afford to fall behind in the title race, confident they'll leave others in their dust later in the season. That's why I've taken draw cover - fear Neil Lennon may leave out likes of Scott Brown and Georgios Samaras. Aberdeen are looking in good nick this season, with two fine wins under their belt already. At the end of the day, whatever the Celtic line-up, man-for-man they will be stronger all over the park, and whether this bet wins or loses, it feels like an opportunity that can't be ignored. Cheers
  12. Re: Scottish Football - 2nd - 4th August 0-0 .... :lol 227 Premiership games to go in 2013/14 - I'm sure there'll be a few winners along the way.
  13. Re: Scottish Football - 2nd - 4th August It's been a long, long summer ... yet still somehow the Scottish Cup final feels like only yesterday. Yet again, it's been a bonkers summer in the crazy old world that is Scottish football. The SPL no longer exists - we have the shiny new (but sponsorless) Scottish Professional Football League, which is divided into four divisions named the Premiership, Championship, League One and League Two (wonder where they got that idea from?). We also now have a Lowland League, which along with the Highland League, will feed teams in to League Two ... but not until next season. I'll be focusing almost entirely on the Premiership (and the cups), but may dip into the other divisions occasionally. There have been plenty of ins and outs as per usual and most sides are an unknown quantity on the eve of the new season. Celtic have lost Victor Wanyama and Gary Hooper, but will still be far too strong for the rest - although expect them to drop points while still in Europe as that will be their primary focus in the knowledge they'll win the title regardless. At the bottom, it's important to note that Hearts start on -15 points, as they're in administration. Elsewhere, St Johnstone (whose European exploits have already made waves) have a new manager in the shape of former assistant Tommy Wright, as do Kilmarnock, who replaced Kenny Shiels with Queen of the South boss Allan Johnston, a former Killie player. Caley Thistle have again sold the vast majority of their team and replaced them with freed English youngsters, while Motherwell have splashed the cash to tie-up James McFadden and Stephen McManus and Dundee United have brought back £2.5m striker David Goodwillie on loan. For what it's worth, if I had a gun held to my head and ordered to predict how the table will shape up come May, I'd suggest the following. 1 - Celtic 2 - Motherwell 3 - Aberdeen 4 - Inverness Caley 5 - St Johnstone 6 - Dundee Utd 7 - Ross County 8 - Kilmarnock 9 - Hibs 10 - St Mirren 11 - Hearts 12 - Partick Thistle I can't resist a small play on tonight's opener. Partick Thistle v Dundee United - Over 2.5 goals @ 2.02 with 188Bet Intriguing start to the season as United are managed by the man who is almost entirely responsible for Thistle being in the top flight. Jackie McNamara moved north about three quarters into last season with Thistle in prime promotion position. He left in stormy circumstances with a row over bonuses denting his relationship with the fans. He then returned to cherry-pick Paton and Erskine, two key men from his former team. That should help build a spicy atmosphere tonight. On the pitch, I think we'll see this season two teams far more comfortable attacking than they are defending. Thistle's front three of Forbes, Lawless and Doolan know where the goal is, and in playmaker Forbes they've got a man who threatened a few years back to hit the heights. His career stalled a bit, but he won't look out of place in the Premiership this season. Defensively, they're untested at this level, and in the likes of Goodwillie, Mackay-Steven and new signing Ciftci, United are going to make chances.
  14. Re: Scottish Football > 12th to 16th February Dundee United (+1.25AH) away to Celtic @ 2.11 with 188Bet (Also recommend Both Teams to Score, which I've seen range from 1.70-2.10 at various books) Always a risky business opposing Celtic in whatever form, but seems like a good time to do so. They've been impressive in recent weeks in the build-up to the Juve game and played well for spells the other night, but I feel the 3-0 defeat might deflate them somewhat for a game or two. They're 17 points clear in the title and the last couple of months have been geared entirely to the Juve clash - Europe is now beyond them and I'm expecting a lacklustre performance tomorrow in a very different atmosphere from Tuesday. The crowd will be much smaller, the intensity will be non-existent and added to that, Scott Brown and Victor Wanyama are likely to miss out - the two men who make Celtic tick. Would expect Ambrose to be rested after Nations Cup, while Mulgrew has also been carrying a knock and the goalie Forster doesn't look fully fit after his recent spell on the sidelines. They too could be left out. United, meanwhile, are still riding on the wave of "new manager syndrome" with Jackie McNamara bringing a freshness to a team that looked stale under Peter Houston. There's attacking prowess there with Daly, Russell and Mackay-Stevens and they'll take advantage of any sloppiness in the Celtic rearguard. United have a poor record at Parkhead but I fancy them to keep this close and quite feasibly take something home with them. Good luck everyone involved this weekend
  15. Re: Scottish Football > 12th to 16th February Killie have been without Bell and Sheridan (keeper and striker) for the last couple of games and beat Motherwell before drawing at Caley, who are both in the top 3. So, you're right, Killie are missing key man, but it hasn't phased them so far. They've also got a great record at Tynecastle and it's been another strange week off the park at Hearts. I would probably fancy Hearts to edge it, but won't be getting involved myself. Good luck if you do though.
