FREE Premiership and Bundesliga picks:Last updated @ 11:24 on 15th Aug 09
Selection: UTD vs B'ham
Bet: Man UTD corner handicap (-3.5) vs B'ham
Info: A -3.5 handicap for a team likely to be attacking down the flanks with the likes of the very direct Antonio Valencia for the majority of the match, at home to a team that will defend their own box for the most part. Need I say more
Strength: 8.5/10 - Stake : 4.5pts - Odds: 4/6 - Book:
Selection: Spurs vs LFC
Bet: Wincast - LFC win/Torres to score
Info: Ridiculous value. Both come hand in hand. IE: If 1 comes in, the other is likely and to give 4/1 on this even though it is more unlikely than likely(slightly), is bordering on insanity. Expekt go 2/1 to give you and idea of just how wrong the price is.
Strength: 4.5/10 - Stake : 1.25pts - Odds:4/1 - Book: (betfred)
Bet: Chelsea win vs Hull, Bayern win vs Bremen
Info: Hull have done nothing of note in the summer and should continue where they left off last season and be rolled over at the bridge. Bayern have done some serious business in the summer and are determined to win back their title whilst Bremen will have atough year having lost their key man, Diego.
Strength: 7/10 - Stake : 3pts - Odds: 2.05 - Book:
Selection: Bayer Leverkusen vs Hoffenheim
Bet: Stefan Kiessling anytime scorer
Info: Should be open attacking game and Kiessling's confidence is high after scoring last week
Strength: 4.5/10 - Stake : 1.5pts - Odds:15/8 - Book:
Selection: Bayern Munich vs Werder Bremen
Bet: Wincast - Bayern win/Gomez to score
Info: Bayern desperate to get off to a good start and only a draw in matchday 1. Formidable at home.
Strength: 5.5/10 - Stake : 1.5pts - Odds:13/8 - Book:
Selection: Premiership matchday 1(Saturday games only)
Bet: 19 or less goals to be scored
Info: Generally the first weekend has less goals due to lack of match sharpness, mainly in front of goal. On paper there are a lot of dry looking fixtures as well on matchday 1.
Strength: 7/10 - Stake : 3pts - Odds:5/4 - Book:
Selection: Pompey vs Fulham
Bet: Under 2.5 goals
Info: Pompey struggling for goals. Hodgson has turned Fulham into a solid compact unit. Potentially dire game.
Strength: 7.5/10 - Stake : 3pts - Odds: 3/4 - Book:
Selection: Spurs vs LFC
Bet: corners over 10.5
Info: Small pitch, wingers like Aaron Lennon, attacking fullbacks such as Glen Johnson. Expect corners and a lot of them at White Heart Lane this year.
Strength: 7.5/10 - Stake : 3pts - Odds: 11/17 - Book: (expekt)
