In Across the Leagues today:
Things certainly went our way last week.
On Wednesday night, Blackburn scored a deflected injury-time winner to beat Millwall, 2-1 – with the visitors left screaming for at least two penalties.
Then on Thursday, Rangers were given a debatable penalty in the Europa League. James Tavernier slipped over when taking it – but still scored.
And on Saturday, David Moyes went blue in the face protesting that the ball had gone out for a throw-in in the build-up to Man Utd’s second-half equaliser at West Ham. From 0-1 down at half time, Man Utd went on to win 3-1.
Across those matches, the research led us to selections in the Win & Both Teams to Score, Anytime Scorer, and Half Time/ Full Time markets.
Lady luck is always going to come into things somewhere. But if you turn the coin the other way, from last Friday’s Across the League EXTRA email. Jamie Vardy’s last-gasp winner for Leicester at Sheffield United ended up being the difference between a 14/1 four-fold acca payout, and the 1-1 Correct Score at 6/1+.
As it was, our Weekend Preview email contained more than enough pointers to make it a happy Saturday night…
Namely, Man Utd delivering a 25/1 payout on the Half Time/ Full Time (HT/ FT) turnaround at West Ham.
And Portsmouth, Oldham & Colchester obliging for a 15/1 match win treble.
Those three Football League sides were also in as our latest contenders in the Win & Both Teams to Score (Win & BTTS) markets. Our focus on stats and analysis in that area has been paying off well in the last couple of weeks.
Those three weekend selections ended with the following score-lines:
Portsmouth 2 Peterborough 0
Cambridge 1 Oldham 2
Colchester 2 Grimsby 1
That was the 4th time in a row over the last fortnight that we’ve got 2 out of 3 correct in a Win & BTTS treble in the Football League.
With the last two both a tantalising ‘just one goal away’ from a 100/1+ jackpot.
Many of you have been doing very well indeed by putting those Win & BTTS matches in Trixies, where an attractive Double has paid out each time…
“United HT/FT up, Win and BTS double up and all three to win Trixie up. Over £350 profit in one afternoon. Fantastic!” – Eric J
“What a day on Saturday. £250 win on West Ham HT Man Utd FT. £140 on my Colchester Portsmouth and Oldham Trixie. And £163 on win treble on the above. Absolutely superb and one goal away again from a massive payout” – Brian R
“Followed your recommendations for Win and BTTS on Saturday, but placed Trixies rather than Trebles, and came away with some very nice net winnings of £682” – Phil

Aside from the always-necessary involvement of lady luck, those paydays come from plenty of time spent monitoring and studying the stats and markets…
Here are four takeaway points from last week’s HT/ FT and Win & BTTS results:
We’ll be keeping our eye in with those stats and markets as the action continues.
The football coming up this week includes match-day 6 in the Champions League and Europa League, as well as midweek fixtures in the Championship and League Two. Followed by a full weekend domestic schedule.
Here are five men who all scored again at the weekend, keeping on strong streaks that make them noteworthy contenders in the Anytime Scorer betting right now:
Talking of young players to watch out for, Jamal Musiala gets an honourable mention in today’s Scorers list, too…
The 17-year-old came off the bench for Bayern Munich to score in a 3-3 draw with RB Leipzig on Saturday.
Born in Germany but raised in England (and representing England at youth level), Musiala has now got three goals in the German Bundesliga – each time after coming on as a substitute.
I don’t know much about this lad, but I’ll say this: if you’re playing for the German champions as a teenager, then you’ve probably got a bright future ahead of you. We’ll keep an eye out for him.
