While the system bets in Australia gave me a good morning, the afternoon didn't go to plan. I will comment more after the weekend on results so for the time being lets move on to Sunday's action.
I have a feeling that West Brom can hold on for a draw at least against Spurs but am concerned by the Odemwingie affair and its effect so will leave this and hope as an Arsenal fan for a result here. After watching Liverpool against the Gooners on Wednesday I can't see them getting anything at City, even with the hosts without Kompany and Toure. City still have a most impressive home record and Liverpool are so overrated away so I am backing the hosts in a double with Real Sociedad to beat Mallorca.
Sociedad are a very strong home side, highlighted by victory over Barcelona last week, while Mallorca really struggle on the mainland.
£35 Double: Man City and Real Sociedad 3.3 Stan James, 3.17 Pinnacle
Athletico Madrid vs Real Betis (20:00)
Athletico have a perfect record at home this season, including some big margin victories. But the big scores have all been with star striker Falcao in the side. When he is not, as is the case today, they have been a lot closer. So I am dutching 1 and 2 goal winning margins to turn a 1.47 favourite into a 2.03 bet.
£50 - £27 A Madrid to win by 1 goal 3.75 B365
£23 A Madrid to win by 2 goals 4.5 Betfair, Ladbrokes
Marseille vs Nancy
Following the same line of attack with Marseille's home game with Nancy. All of OM's home wins have been by 1 or 2 goals and 4 out of 6 of Nancy's away losses have been by 2 goals or less. So again I am attempted to turn a 1.44 choice into an even money prospect.
£50 - £26.50 Marseille to win by 1 goal 3.75 B365
£23.50 Marseille to win by 2 goals 4.25 Ladbrokes, 4.2 PP
