HullShaker’s Tips – Double shot with plenty of Ice

TUESDAY sees a pretty lively card in the Icelandic 1 Deild and I'm doubling up two of the earlier kicks-offs to form today's picks…

KEFLAVÍK VS. MAGNI (7.00pm)

THÓR VS. NJARDVÍK (7.00pm)

Both host sides are clear  favourites to win and with good reason; their opposition's away record in particular is pretty grim with Thor conceding 6 across the last [...]

Betfred Cup: Favourites won’t let us down

After a no bet day on Monday we have an actioned packed Tuesday to look forward to with 11 Betfred league cup group games, UCL qualifiers and a ton of friendlies.

Its the Scottish games I'll be focusing on, nothing flash here, I've picked out a goals double and I'd be really surprised if this didn't land. Still early days [...]

Mr Fixit’s Top Tips: Super Sunday and ordinary Monday

IT turned out to be a Super Sunday of sport with dramatic finishes in the golf, tennis and cricket.

Bernd Wiesberger won the Scottish Open after an error-strewn three-hole play-off in North Berwick while Novk Djokovic made history by beating Roger Federer to win Wimbledon on a tiebreak.

And while I'm not a cricket fan it would be difficult to [...]

Football Preview: The Week Ahead

I posted last week a preview of the week ahead and on the whole, the return to competitive football this week has been pretty good to punters with the UCL,  Europa Legaue Qualifiers and friendlies delivering plenty of winners.

The only disappointment was the Betfred cup with Mr F rightly pointing out to keep stakes sensible this early in the [...]

HullShaker’s Tips – Mileage in backing Petrolheads

YESTERDAY'S Bolivian bets are on ice until Monday and did put up a couple of late btts picks but they were a total write off!

Sunday is an interesting card with most of the key SA leagues clocking back on and a smattering of half-decent Nordic games thrown in for good measure.

I've looked through the lot and settled on [...]

Wimbledon Tennis Tips: Djokovic too strong for Fed

WE were a little unlucky in the Wimbledon semi finals in the sense that three of the four sets played out between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal were fairly typical of their career series, but the one that wasn’t ended in a first set tie break.

That rather edgy first set downed our no tie breaks wager, but anyone that [...]

Mr Fixit’s Top Tips: Betfred Cup bit of a letdown

WE all heralded the start of the new season and the opening Betfred Cup ties but nothing much went to plan.

Hibs let down a lot of people as they were held 1-1 at Stirling. That included myself, Greg and Scott with his members bet treble.

Early games are not much more than glorified friendlies but this was still a [...]

HullShaker’s Tips – Always Ready for a bit of a gamble

IT'S been a great week and looking to make it 4 successful NAP and NBs on the bounce with a a helping hand from the return of The Bolivian Primera!

ALWAYS READY VS. SPORT BOYS

(8.00pm)

Destination Estadio Municipal El Alto for me this evening as the Bolivian Clauara kicks into gear – there is massive favouritism for the hosts [...]

Betfred Cup: New Season to kick off with goals

I posted on Monday  a preview of this weeks football and whilst it was great having the UCL and Europa league qualifiers to keep us busy and swell the coffers, its great to see the Scottish league cup back to open the season.

We have 14 matches to look forward to today (all 3pm KO's) and there are quite a [...]

Mr Fixit’s Top Tips: Shanks a lot Lawrence

LAWRENCE SHANKLAND had the honour of scoring the first goal of the new Scottish season as we got to a decent start with Hearts v Dundee United.

Kevinmac tipped the ex-Ayr hitman to score and also predicted a draw at 13-4 while Scott's members bet was both to score. Apologies for saying kevin had two winners on Thursday's Aberdeen game [...]

Betfred Cup Tips: Hibs on a goals run

BACKERS of favourites need to be careful on Saturday as the Scottish season opens with the Betfred Cup group stage.

This is much better than friendlies but many teams will use the matches to hone fitness ahead of the SPFL kick-off.

Last season there were plenty of shocks at this stage so resist the temptation to lump on all the [...]

Wimbledon Tennis Tips: Follow tie-break trend in Nadal v Federer

A SPIRITED early effort from Sam Querrey in which he had his chances in set one against Rafa Nadal wasn’t enough in Wednesday’s quarter finals, with Querrey desperately needing to take the opener.

Once that had gone so had his chances and Querrey. So, yet again at a major it’s the same trio plus one in the semi finals, with [...]

Mr Fixit’s Top Tips: United won’t lie down to Hearts

WE'VE had all sorts of games over the past month but we can safely say the season starts for real on Friday night.

Four Scottish teams have already played and won in Europe this week but when Hearts take on Dundee United in the Betfred Cup group stage opener it will feel like football is really back.

It's a good [...]

Europa League: Stick with the big guns

Maps and a book of  flags at the ready, yip, that's right, its that time of the year again, Europa League 1st round qualifiers.

I like to think I have a fairly good level of knowledge of being able to confirm where a team comes from but this year there are quite a few I had to check.

Its a [...]

HullShaker’s Tips – Keflavik could surprise the bookies

SOMETIMES there are easier bets to take on but real (potential) value usually comes from taking a calculated risk and that's my steer for tonight's selections – hopefully fortune favours the brave…

FJÖLNIR VS. KEFLAVÍK (8.15pm)

Prices are as short as 4/11 for Fjolnir here and whilst I understand how those prices have been generated on recent standings and form, [...]

Mr Fixit’s Top Tips: Wade through Europa League minefield

THERE'S a massive card featuring Europa League qualifiers on Thursday and I'm still wading through them.

I've posted a preview featuring Aberdeen v RoPS and Connah's Quay Nomads v Kilmarnock here. Kevinmac has posted a preview on Aberdeen vs RoPS and SlipsTips has added Nomads vs Killie so check them out.

St Patrick's v Norrkoping looks a decent game and [...]

Europa League Tips: Take Double Scotch on the handicaps

CELTIC and Rangers got their Euro campaigns off to a flier and tonight Aberdeen and Killie should make it four out of four.

Both have been handed favourable Europa League starters and only rustiness will prevent them from first-leg victories.

Aberdeen have home advantage against RoPS and would love to take at least a two-goal lead to the Arctic Circle [...]

Champions League Qualifiers: Rosenborg too good for Linfield

After an action packed Tuesday, its a smaller card to focus on today with 8 UCL qualifiers and some more friendlies at home and on the continent.

My focus tonight will be on Rosenborg's trip to Belfast to play Linfield and the Norwegians should be too good for their northern Irish counterparts.

Linfield vs Rosenborg (KO 7.45pm)

It can be [...]

Mr Fixit’s Top Tips: Late is great for some

GREG sent me a text earlier saying “late goals are great goals” and in his case that was spot on. He napped Hibs at Carlisle and from 3-1 down they won 4-3 with a last-gasp clincher. Well done to HullShaker and also Scott with their winners and to everyone else including shortee who profited from TNS's laet demise. I said[...]

HullShaker’s Ante post Selections – It could be grim up North!

IT'S that time of year when thoughts turn to ante post selections and two bets stand out for me with a common theme emerging – The Mighty Shakers potential (and highly likely) freefall!

With gaffer Ryan Lowe gone and talismanic playmaker Danny Mayor joining him at Argyle, the future looks bleak for Bury amongst our ongoing financial shenanigans – although [...]
