After the unbridled success of the column two weeks ago, it was back down to earth last week with two successful picks out of five.
Lukaku at 2.68/5 and Llorente at 2.35/4 delivered to make it a slightly disappointing week rather than a disastrous one. So it's still with confidence that I approach this week's fixtures, where I'm sure there are rich pickings to be found.
We start with Manchester City's visit to Southampton. After a fine start to the season the Saints are now having a hard time of things, as a tough fixture list and injuries have combined to see them lose their last three games.
The obvious man to inflict further punishment upon them is Manchester City's Sergio Aguero. He's hit 11 goals in 13 league starts this season and the odds of 2.226/5 for him to find the net look likely to get us off to a solid start.
Another man in fine form in the Premier League is the Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey, who has hit 13 goals in all competitions this season.
I've yet to include Ramsey amongst my picks this season, quite possibly because I'm a Tottenham fan and I was hoping that this was just one massive flash in the pan. It's become increasingly obvious though that Ramsey's goalscoring form is here to stay, which is where his price gets interesting.
I've written in the past about how midfielders remain overpriced when compared to strikers, even if they score more goals, as we've seen with Frank Lampard over the years. Ramsey is 8.88/1 to score first against Everton, behind the likes of Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott and most insultingly of all, Nicklas Bendtner. That's got to be worth a punt.
Next we cast our attention towards the FA Cup Second Round, where Tamworth host Bristol City. The visitors are currently in the League 1 relegation zone, which is no doubt why those opportunistic folk at ITV have decided to televise this potential giant-killing.
What they might have missed is the fact that the former Arsenal youth player Jay Emmanuel-Thomas has scored ten goals in 15 games for City this season, despite their struggles.
Thomas has also scored twice in the FA Cup, having grabbed a brace during his side's 3-0 win over Dagenham and Redbridge. Let's back him to score at likely odds of 2.111/10.
Over to Germany now for the plum tie between Borussia Dortmund and Bayer Leverkusen. Dortmund got back to winning ways with a 3-1 win over Mainz 05 last weekend, after two straight league defeats.
Yet Dortmund have still got problems in defence, where they've experienced major injury problems. Their midweek cup tie against Saarbrucken saw Dortmund keep their first clean sheet in eight games, but I don't see them containing a Leverkusen side that boast the Bundesliga's second top scorer this season.
Stefan Kiessling has scored nine goals in 14 league games this season, building on last season's total of 27 goals in 43 games. He's worth a chance at a likely price of 9.08/1 to score the last goal.
Finally we head to France for the match between Lorient and Rennes. The hosts are in good form, having won their last three games without conceding. These games have also seen their striker Vincent Aboubakar plunder four goals to take his total to nine for the season.
To put that into context, nine is the same amount of league goals scored by Radamel Falcao - only the PSG pair Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edison Cavani have scored more. That makes the likely 2.89/5 on offer for Aboubakar to score against a mediocre Rennes side, decent value.
Best Bet: Back Ramsey to score first at 8.88/1
Back Aguero to score at 2.226/5
Back Emmanuel-Thomas to score at 2.111/10
Back Kiessling to score last at 9.08/1
Back Aboubakar to score at 2.89/5
