Villarreal 'B' v Man City Tips - Injury Woes

Huge night tonight for Manchester in Europe for the Red and Blue halves and Manchester City will not get a better chance to pick up three Champions League points than in their clash tonight against an injury hit and formless Vilarreal side. Villarreal, already without star strikers Rossi and Nilmar, both longterm absentees, suffered injuries to other key players v Vallecano on Saturday, with Cani and backup striker Marco Ruben both coming off early in the game.

Marcos Senna, Christian Zapata and Javier Camunas will also be missing for Villarreal. Man City will be licking their lips as this essentially leaves Villarreal with hardly any attacking or creative players. Hernan Perez, who has looked sharp this season is likely to be played in an advanced role and if Villarreal are to get anything from the game, he will need to step up. Man City have been conceeding goals of late and the Paraguayan does look great value at 7.8 on Betfair to sneak in under the radar and net for the home side. Villarreal are nothing like the team of the last few years. They find it hard to control the football and they are vulnerable at the back and barring complacency, Man City should take all three points.

Golf Player Profiles

Please note that player attribute ratings are derived from the official PGA Tour and European Tour golf stats, and updated with a rolling average each golf betting year for precision.

Bryan Nicholson is the pioneer of the progressive form and course fit ratings for golf betting, with the associated progressive form model and course fit profiling model. Bryan is the author of the increasingly popular annual course fit profiling manual and #1 golf betting book Angles & Edges and runs the Sharp Sports Bettors Blog.

What is expected Strokes Gained Course Fit ?

Bryan also pioneered the concept of Expected Strokes Gained Course Fit (xSGF) in golf betting. xSGF can be predicted using my model below. For prospective golf betting tips it projects ahead of time how many shots a player is expected to pick up per round on average on a particular golf course. It's weighed against a neutral golf course of the same rating. For example: Sam Horsfield at Celtic Manor vs TPC Southwind. This number will also portray ability level in terms of strokes gained total. Click "find out more" under the course fit golf betting model for info.

What is Progressive Form in Golf Betting?

Progressive form in golf betting differs from current form in that players are showing a trend in the right direction in their recent scoring. Trending form has a high predictive value in golf betting and can also catch players under the radar at an inflated price vs their true betting odds. For example - a player shows form of T40 - 24 - 24, but last week he was in the leading PGA Tour group on Sunday with Tiger Woods and had a bad round due to nerves. His finishing position may not fully capture his actual form... See more with our calculators and betting tools
