European Weekend Preview + Top 10 Picks


Afternoon all!

Having gone through the form book, and analysed this weekends actions and come up with 10 games we are confident will win. Last weekend we managed 9/10 – with only Monaco losing 1-0 to 10-man Guingamp, somehow. Here’s our view on the weekends games:

1. Atletico Madrid Win @ Evens (Score Both Halves @ 11/4) vs Celta Vigo

Playing a decent Celta Vigo outfit, Evens is a cracking price considering they have won 4 of the last 5 meetings both overall and away! Form wise, Madrid have won 4 of their last 5 games, and 3 of their last 5 away games. Celta Vigo have lost only 2 of their last 5 games overall, and home – but we think Atletico will win.

2. Villarreal Win @ 21/20 (Over 1.5 Team Goals @ 7/5) vs Vallecano

Villarreal face a badly out of form Vallecano side, who have lost 4 of their last 5 games, and 4 of their last 5 home games. In terms of their form, 3 wins from 5 games overall, and 2 wins and 2 draws from 5 away games. They have also won all of the last 5 games between the two, as well as 4/5 away meetings. All of these games they have scored at least 2!

3. Brentford Win @ 11/10 (Over 1.5 Team Goals @ 23/20) vs Charlton

Brentford are in fantastic form! 3 wins from 5 overall, and 4 wins from 5 away from home. Charlton on the other hand have not won in 5 games overall, or at home, with several draws and mainly losses.

4. Sampdoria Win @ 9/5 (Over 1.5 Team Goals @ 2/1) vs Chievo

Sampdoria are the Southampton of Serie A this season. Well up the table when they were expected to finish no better than mid-table. They have won 2/5 overall, and 2/5 away from home. But, in Serie A – away wins are rare. Chievo are pretty poor, with 2 draws and 3 losses in both their overall form, and home form. Also on our side is that Sampdoria have won 4/5 meetings!

5. Aberdeen Win @ Evens (HT-FT @ 15/8) vs Hamilton

Aberdeen have won 3 and drawn 2 of their last 5 games, overall. Away from home, they have won 4 and drawn 1 of their last 5! Hamilton are in pretty poor form. 3 losses in 5 home games, and no wins in 5 games overall (D2/L3). HT-FT has landed for Aberdeen in 13/24 games for them this season!

6. Celtic Win @ 1/2 (-1 Goal @ Evens) vs St Johnstone

Celtic have won 4 and drawn 1 overall, and won 4 and drawn 1 away from home. St Johnstone’s form overall is average, but very good at home, with 3 wins from 5 games. Celtic however, have won 4 of the last 5 games between the two. They have not conceded in 8 games, and usually score 2-3 goals, and with their two new signings from Dundee Utd, they look even stronger. I would go WTN, but usually thats when the team we back concede.

7. Southend Win @ 8/11 (HT-FT @ 11/8) vs Accrington

Southend are in good form, with 4 wins and a draw from 5 games overall, and W2/D3 at home. Accrington have lost 4 of 5 games both overall and away from home. Worst form in the league. Excellent value this one!

8. Anderlecht Win @ 1/2 (-1 Goal @ 5/4) vs Mechelen

Won 3/5 both overall and at home (W3/D2 at home). Mechelen’s form is average at best. 3 draws and a loss from 5 games overall, and D3/L2 away. Anderlecht have won 4/5 home meetings between the two, however. We fancy them to win and win well!

9. Club Brugge Win @ 8/15 (Score Both Halves @ 6/4) vs Lokeren

Brugge have won 3/5 overall, and Won 4/D1 at home. Lokeren are in fairly good form, but away from home – they are very beatable. Brugge have won 5 from 5 games, and 4/5 at home vs Lokeren. Score so many goals at home, and in most games they manage to in both halves.

10. Sporting Lisbon Win @ 1/2 (Win to Nil @ 6/5) vs Belenenses

Lisbon’s form is excellent – Won 4, Drawn 1 both away and overall. Belenenses are a very low scoring team. 3 0-0’s in the past few games. If Lisbon score, they are pretty much screwed. Lisbon have won 3 of the last 5 games between the two, but even then we think they will score 2, and win to nil. Win most of their away games to nil, as they have a solid defence


Tips are coming up later on today – hopefully we follow last weekend’s success, where both of our main accumulators won @ 5.5/1 and 16.5/1!
