Three up front: 02/04/12

The much talked about Mega Millions jackpot was won over the weekend, and news outlets are currently racing about trying to ruin the life of some sorry sod before he actually does it himself, Michael Carroll-style. The media was full of ponderous pearls of statistical wisdom in the run-up to the $640 million draw, the pick of which had to be USA Today’s claim that you were nine times more likely to die from a TV falling on your head. Having failed to beat the 175 million to 1 odds, allow us to help you get rich in three easy steps.

1) Liga: Sevilla vs Mallorca, 21.00 CET/15.00 EST

Take ten of your finest dollars, pounds or Euros, and stick it on Mallorca at 9/2. The islanders’ away form is reasonable, while Sevilla’s home record has been poor this season.

2) English Premier League: Blackburn vs Man Utd, 21.00 CET/15.00 EST

Now you have 45 of your finest dollars, pounds or Euros. Bit of a leap of faith this one, but shove it all on Blackburn at 7/1. With a supportive home crowd behind them, an early goal could see Steve Kean’s men hang on for a surprise victory. And it’s not like they haven’t done it before.

3) Bulgarian A PFG: Levski Sofia vs Ludogorets, 18.30 CET/12.30 EST

Your total stands at a rather tasty 315 of your finest etc. etc. While we’re not generally in the habit of venturing out into outposts such as the Bulgarian league, this fixture is interesting in that it involves a side – Ludogorets – that came up from the second division to challenge for the title this year, and a traditional heavyweight club that has just changed coaches due to patchy form. Take the promoted side at 7/2, spend your $£€ 1,112.50 wisely, and remember to send us our 15% commission.
