FST starts 2021 with a bang as Shots on Target Special debuts with a winner (plus BOTD and NBA winners)

It may be the start of a new year but it’s the same old story here at FST as we land our first few winners of 2021.

2020 was full of stunning winners at FST, but we’re hoping to go even better this year and our experts have certainly started off on the right foot despite the relatively meagre fixture list on New Year’s Day.

Here’s how it all unfolded:

5/1 Shots on Target Special lands on its debut!

The New Year saw the launch of a brand new tip on FST: our Shots on Target special.

Our expert focused his attention on the Manchester United vs Aston Villa game on Friday evening for his special offering, tipping up a quartet of players to hit the target over the 90 minutes and immediately proving his worth.

It was a high-octane match to begin 2021, with Manchester United and Villa attempting 34 shots between them in total. Our attention was firmly fixed upon Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford, Ollie Watkins and Anwar El Ghazi though.

We just needed each of them to hit the target once and they duly delivered, with Anwar El Ghazi rounded off our victory with his attempt at the near post before being substituted shortly afterward.

Our next Shots on Target special will focus on Chelsea vs Manchester City on Sunday afternoon, so make sure to check out our football tips page to get a slice of the action. And remember, these are all priced up with Betfair, where new customers can get up to £100 in free bets when they sign up below.

Bet of the Day winner and NBA success

Bet of the Day winner

That wasn’t our only winner on Friday either. Our 4/7 Bet of the Day tip also focused on Manchester United vs Aston Villa and landed with 30 minutes to spare as Bruno Fernandes slotted away his penalty to put Manchester United 2-1 up.

On a related note, that also saw two of our three Manchester United vs Aston Villa prediction tips land!

However, earlier in the day FST’s NBA followers may have started the New Year with a tasty slice of NBA winnings as Thursday night’s 5/2 NBA Double landed.

Sacramento Kings just needed to avoid losing by more than five points in their trip to Houston Rockets at five minutes past midnight before we turned our attention to Toronto, where we were hoping for a Raptors thrashing of the Knicks. Here’s the final results:

  • Houston Rockets 122 – 119 Sacramento Kings
  • Toronto Raptors 100 – 83 New York Knicks

Finger’s crossed for more early-season NBA winners. Make sure to check out our NBA tips page for all the latest!
