Bar last weekend, when we didn’t post any shocks at all, we have had at least one winner each weekend, including some 4/1’s, 5/1’s, 6/1’s and a 7/1 (Berlin beat Dortmund). This weekend we have 7 Potential shocks for you, as well as a couple of massive BTTS Acca’s!
Here are the Selected Shocks:
Espanyol 5/1 vs Valencia – Last time out in August, Espanyol won 3-1, and have a decent record against a poor Valencia team suffering from the losses of key men over the past 2 seasons. We fancy them, and at 5/1 that is a top top price!
Bastia 9/2 vs Toulouse – Bastia are a dark horse in Ligue 1 – they have some terrific players and are hard to break down. Last time out against Toulouse they won 2-1, and also drew the previous 2 games – so they are unbeaten since returning to the big time! 9/2 a good price for an upset.
AZ 7/2 vs PSV – Since the summer when Cocu took over and sold off most of their experienced players, PSV have struggled. AZ have lost Altidore and Maher (to PSV, should be interesting….), but replaced well, Aron Johansson is doing a fine job up top. Last time out in September it ended 2-1 AZ, and they won 2-1 in the previous game to that too!
Marseille 4/1 vs Monaco – Monaco have lost Falcao for the season with an ACL injury, and without him often they struggle, with Riviere and Martial being wasteful. Marseille are in good form, and with a near full strength side – 4/1 is great value.
Stoke 11/1 vs Chelsea – in the last game, it ended 3-2 Stoke. Mark Hughes has changed them from a one-dimensional team to an excellent attacking team who score some fantastic goals. Assaidi is in good touch, Arnautovic is dangerous, and Crouchie is, well, Crouchie! Chelsea are at home though, so a shock could happen but ultimately, Chelsea should win.
Kidderminster 10/1 vs Sunderland – This is Kiddi’s big day. They have beaten Peterborough, no mean feat, and now they face a Premier League team (for how much longer though?). They have some terrific players, a great strike force of Gash and Malbon and are a match for any team on their day. Sunderland, after the exploits of defeating Man Utd, may have one eye on the league and another on the Capital Cup final – so we fancy this as a massive shock!
Had some success in the BTTS department over the last few weeks, so here’s a 4 fold and an 8 fold with massive odds!
- Valencia-Espanyol/Empoli-Latina/Estoril-Beira Mar/Villarreal-Valladolid – 14/1
- Accrington-Bury/Walsall-Notts Co/Hyde-Tamworth/Wrexham-Grimsby/Alfreton-Welling/Hereford-Salisbury/Wigan-Palace/Huddersfield-Charlton – 84/1
So, that’s us for now! We will try and keep you updated throughout the day!
