New Premiership Season with Bet365

By | August 3, 2017

The new season kicks off Friday 11th Augusty with Arsenal facing Leicester at home. As always, I recommend that you wait a few weeks to see how teams play until you do any betting, use small stakes or play in running. Over the season, the skill will prevail but early on when teams are gelling, you can get some strange results. I would not touch Arsenal at 1.4.

Out right 2017/2018

City are outright favourites at 2.87. That has no appeal to me. They have a great squad but I don't like Pep. He can win with Barcelona and Bayern Munich but has no experience of building a side. City have strengthened a lot over the summer with Silva, Moraes, Walker and Mendy being the pick of the bunch. Their defence will be formidable if Pep gets the tactics right. Still though, I have no interest in betting on them.

Manchester United seem a much better bet to me. They clicked towards the end of last season and with Lukaku replacing Ibrahimovic, they should be able to get the goals. Just a small bet as there isn't that much value in the outrights. I suppose as its the most popular, its the most analysed so the odds will reflect the probabilities.

To find some value, you have to look at less popular, more obscure bets.

Spurs not to finish in the top 4 at 2.1. I like this one. Spurs will be playing their home games at Wembley so may not have the advantage they had at White Hart Lane.
West Ham to finish in the top half at 2.37. Some decent signings and finished 11th last season on goal difference.

Liverpool specials at Bet Victor

By | June 3, 2017

Liverpool FC are now sponsored by Betvictor. They have a full page of specials that they have priced up. They are 13.0 to win the league which isn't going to happen. The old joke is that all bookies profit comes from Liverpool fans betting on them to win the league. Arsenal probably contribute some to be fair though.

Champions League Final Tips

By | May 31, 2017

Saturday is the final of arguably the finest football tournament in the world. Real Madrid take on Juventus in Cardiff. Its been a cracking tournament and the final is between arguably the best two teams in Europe at the moment. Perhaps the mighty Bayern Munich should be here instead of Real but they are certainly the top 3 teams in Europe now.

Madrid, I think were lucky to get past Bayern. A couple of sending offs really did help them. They were fortunate to have killed the tie off with Atletico at home too as they were heavily under pressure in the return leg. Madrid have been free scoring but they haven't come across this Juventus team who are really tight. The only conceded two in the group stages and shut out Barcelona over 2 legs. Barcelona didn't even look like scoring in the whole 90 minutes. They only conceded one to Monaco in the knock out stages.

In terms of who is going to win this, you could make an argument either way. I do prefer Juventus though. They are hard to break down and Dybala is one of the best strikers I've seen this year. Ronaldo getting a little old now and not banging them in as much as he has done in previous seasons. I'd price this up as a coin toss type of bet. Any of the 3 results wouldn't be a surprise.

Looking at the way Madrid are slight favourites, it makes sense to oppose them for the value. On the Asian Handicap you can get Juventus +0 at 2.07. Draw no bet which is the same is only 1.9.

At bet365 they have the bore draw offer too. I can see this being a tight game with a single goal deciding it. Juventus 1-0 is 8.0 whereas Madrid 1-0 is 7.5. If you bet on these and it ends 0-0 you get your money back.

FA Cup Final

By | May 26, 2017

Last weekend was a great one for punters. All the favourites won. Arsenal were a little iffy in play with the man being sent off but came through comfortably in the end. Chelsea went behind to Sunderland before battering them.

This weekend is the FA Cup. I quite like the look of Chelsea. They've been the better team all season and even though Arsenal went on a little run of 5 straight wins to narrowly miss out on 4th, they've not been great at all season. They were lucky to beat City in the last round whereas Chelsea, even though outclassed managed to win. Conte got his tactics spot on.

The price at the moment for Chelsea is great at 1.83. I was expecting more like 1.7. I can't see that price lasting.

At the moment, Paddypower and Bet Victor both have 1.83. However, may as well bet at Paddypower as you get paid out straight away if Chelsea go 2 up. Doesn't happen very often that a team goes two up and doesn't win so the insurance isn't as good as it sounds but it will stop you having to cash out if Chelsea go 2-0 up, Arsenal get back to 2-1 and Chelsea are hanging on at the end. Unlikely though but may as well have the insurance.
