FST’s tipsters were on fire yesterday, showcasing their unrivalled sporting knowledge to land FIVE winners across a hugely profitable Wednesday.
Our analysts hit the mark with THREE football bets and two selections from the major leagues in the USA, bringing home the bacon on a day packed to bursting with punting accuracy.
Read on to see how it all unfolded!
Premier League predictions on the money
FST’s football writers are the genuine article when it comes to Premier League predictions – and they delivered two winners built around Wednesday’s brace of top-flight fixtures.
The 17/2 Correct Score Best Bet landed the day’s biggest football success, correctly forecasting that champions-elect Manchester City would beat a dogged Aston Villa team 2-1 in the Midlands, while the same fixture also featured in our 9/2 Premier League double.
We backed City and both teams to score for our pick at Villa Park, while Tottenham were also tipped to get the post-Jose Mourinho era up and running with a victory at home to struggling Southampton.
Our 8/15 Bet of the Day winner featured Luton Town’s clash with Reading, where we advised punters to back the Hatters double chance. The hosts duly delivered, holding the frustrated Royals to a 0-0 draw at Kenilworth Road.
Wednesday’s haul could have been even bigger had we not hit the post on our 17/2 Both Teams to Score and 27/1 Both Teams to Score and Win accas, where we were just one leg off in each!
