Considering the bad run I have been on turning even a small profit of 4.9% in the last week filled me with joy. It was a relatively quiet week with seven bets and would have been a lot better had Aberdeen managed to score at Tynecastle.
Inverness was the most disappointing loser considering I had spent a fair bit of time considering it’s potential. I made up my mind that I would only back them to cover the handicap at Stirling if I could confirm that the pitch was in a playable state.
A number of sources confirmed that the pitch was in good condition but in hindsight there was enough information to suggest Stirling were good enough to put it up to them. My guess now is that they had been focusing on that game for a couple of weeks.
The ill-fated trebles continue to be poor choices with both Inverness and Hamilton blowing that one. Hamilton should never have been included considering their form and that they were missing one of their key players in Dougie Imrie.
The One That Got Away
Motherwell -2 was floated by a lot of people in different forums as a good bet to be on and I am still chinning myself for not doing it. I was tempted but couldn’t see past their performance against Albion Rovers a few seasons back.
