Football Tips // 16.08.16


A Preview was posted earlier this morning outlining my four picks for the coming two days – a 23/1 accumulator was what it added up to when placed in such a bet.

This for today is my top two bets:

Dinamo Zagreb vs Salzburg: BTTS + Over 2.5 Goals @ 6/4 (1945 KO)

As mentioned in the preview, both of these teams have excellent young players that should be the toast of European football for many years to come. Both produce them themselves and also bring them in from minor European countries, in order to train them up and show us what they are capable of!

Zagreb are in the better form in a worse league, but Salzburg have some hard-hitters that haven’t yet been fully fit – so I’m expecting a fairly even game. They were in the group stages of the Europa League in 2014/15, and the two games ended 4-2 and 5-1 to Salzburg. 23/20 a very high price for Over 2.5, while combining it with BTTS gives an overall price of 6/4 which I think should be a max of 1/1, maybe 11/10.

For the high price double today I like Zagreb Win + BTTS @ 9/2

Steaua Bucharest vs Man City: Man City -1 Goal Handicap @ 5/4 (1945 KO)

Again, as mentioned in the preview, City are taking a strong squad, and taking it very seriously. City of old have sometimes struggled to break down teams away from home, but with a full strength side going to Romania, I think they could take the Champions apart! Both have strengthened over the summer, but even the most die-hard Steaua fan will expect nothing but defeat here.

The double pays 4.6/1 with Bet365 and William Hill, while another I’d add to make a high price double is the following:

Monchengladbach Win + BTTS @ 11/4

Young Boys are a high scoring, high conceding kind of side. However I don’t think they can live with the talents that the Germans posses. Something along the lines of 2-1 or 3-1 is my expected score if all goes to plan!

That along with the Zagreb pays around 20/1!

Best of luck!
