Champions League: Tuesday 14th February, Barca go to Bayer

Bayer Leverkusen host Barcelona and Lyon face APOEL in the first matches of the knock out stage of this seasons Champions League. The 2 month break from Champions League football was welcome after a pretty disastrous final round of matches. Disastrous for Manchester City, but of more concern, my Champions League betting bank. From a position of 14 points profit going into the final Wednesday, a five point loss was suffered with a total blank in five bets on the final day. The wounds have just about healed and we enter the final stage with a 9 point buffer. Two games to consider as the final stages get underway. LYON v APOEL On paper one might think that odds of 1.45 for the home win in France for this tie could offer some value and one might agree, but surely a price in excess of 8/1 for the Cypriot...

Tuesday Night Npower Championship Betting Odds & Tips

A full midweek program of matches in the Npower Championship starts Tuesday and can see Brighton return to the top. Gus Poyet’s Brighton & Hove Albion do not look like stopping on their charge up the football league and another three points look on the cards as Crystal Palace come to visit the Amex on Tuesday night. Some regard this as a feisty local Derby, although despite the distance between the two clubs, the same question could be asked about the South Coast Derby when Portsmouth play the Seagulls. The chunks missing out of legs every time this match takes place sits it firmly in Derby territory however. The fortunes of each club couldn’t be any different at the moment though. Both sides started brightly in their respective campaigns, but the wheels have come of Palaces run of late, or at least a couple as they went down to...

Norwich v Sunderland Betting Odds and Predictions

Canaries or Black Cats? Where will the points go in this Premier League clash? Sunderland travel down the East Coast on Monday night to East Anglia to take on Norwich City at Carrow Road. With both sides breaking their duck in games last weekend, we are left with a conundrum in trying to predict where the points will be come 90 minutes. Both side have gained five points from a single win, two draws and two losses so far in the Premier League. Predicting the 90 minute result is not straightforward, although temptation says either side may be happy with a share of the points. Bet365 have Norwich a shade above 6/4, Ladbrokes go 2/1 Sunderland and 9/4 the Draw. I couldn’t back either team to win outright at those odds and think the value is in the draw. One thing to note with both Norwich and Sunderland’s games...

I am writing from a sick bed today, the same place I have been since traveling back from Malta. Almost certainly something from the air conditioning on the flight i would presume. So there is my excuse for the lack of updates on a site which is a one man band and neglected if I can not muster the strength or mental power to come up with anything meaningful.

All decent priced bets this Saturday, 2 of these 5 tips right and it should be a good day 12:45 Blackburn v Arsenal Blackburn (HT) 4.8 “Blackburn have not been leading at half time in any of their four games so far this Premier League...

UEFA Champions League Draw, Analysis, Betting Odds & Tips – Group B

Here I take a look at the Champions League Draw and give some early prediction for the two sides from each group to progress. Each group will also have its own odds box to show the best odds available for each. Group B: Inter Milan, CSKA Moscow, Lille, Trabzonspor Inter Milan are a best price 1.5 (1/2) to win this Group B and that is probably right.In fact it might even be a shade on the big side for some. i wold approach the price with some caution as Inter have periods of serious inconsistency. CSKA’s last two Champions league games came against Inter when the Italians did a typically professional job on them, winning both legs, home and away 1-0. With that in hand we can forecast they will finish in front of the Russians in the Group. Lille will be a tough cookie to break down in...

Premier League Betting Odds – Aston Villa v Wolverhampton Wanderers

August 24, 2011
By

Alex McLeish may not have been the most popular of appointments over the summer at Aston Villa, but he is at the helm and is getting on with his job quietly. A win and a draw on the board and four points in the bank, all the time he can keep the first loss of the season at bay he can keep the Wolves from the door! Problem, the Wolves turn up on Saturday at Villa Park! This is a Wolves side that survived relegation by just a single point last season but were only eight points behind today’s rivals who were looking very safe, such it the tightness of this division. The points therefore are all that more important. Mick McCarthy has had a couple of good results already for Wolves with wins against Blackburn away and Fulham at home, but remember they lost 13 of their 19...

Wenger has More Than One Worry on Wednesday at Udinese as Arsenal look to progress in the Champions League

Wenger has More Than One Worry on Wednesday at Udinese as Arsenal look to progress in the Champions League

Arsenal may have to defend their 1-0 advantage versus Udinese without manager Arsene Wenger on the bench on Wednesday night in Italy. After being warned about passing messages onto his coaching staff in the first leg at the Emirates last week, he continued to do so, which saw him breach of a suspended ban from the match against Barcelona in the final 16 last season. A two match ban was therefore initiated and imposed. Arsenal have appealed, but there are no assurances, even if successful, that it will come in time for him to be on the touchline for this return leg where the gunners have only a slender 1-0 lead. After losing to Liverpool at home at the weekend, Wenger has to rally his troops to up their game at the Stadio Communal Friuli. This will be only the second competitive game for Udinese this season as they...

Where are the score draws in the Npower Championship?

I need those Score Draws!!!

Here’s something to consider, its called the law of averages, and in this instance i think it is quite significant. By far the most common result in most leagues is the 1-1 draw, hence it is almost always found as the shortest price correct score bet in the majority of game, should they not be top v bottom etc. Now, in the Championship thus far, should Palace v Cov stay 0-1, there will have been 31 completed games since the start of the season. Working on previous years averages, 2008/09 1-1 (69 games) 12.50% 1-0 (59) 2009/10 1-1 (86 games) 15.58% 1-0 (57) 2008/09 1-1 (71 games) 12.86% 1-0 (51) We might safely assume that at an average of 12% we should have had some 4-5 games finishing with this scoreline. We might also, well I do anyway, think that this inbalance will be redressed over the course of...
