Football Tips // 09.12.15


Morning all

Finding form now – in the last 5 days, it is 4 double winners and 8/12 – a mix of two 4/1’s and two 5/1’s! The 4/1 double last night was a little tense – I thought Wolfsburg had blown it, but they scored straight away after Man Utd equalised at 2-2, to win 3-2. In the BTTS + Over 2.5 Goals match, there were two goals in the opening 7 minutes meaning we needed 1 in 83, which came midway through the 2nd half.

Same again today – I was tempted to go with Nuneaton but with the weather getting colder and colder, it’s more likely to have an effect on games and even be postponed due to poor pitch conditions, so stick with a Champions League double:

Leverkusen vs Barcelona: Barcelona Win @ 1/1 (1945 KO – NAP)

This is a dead rubber for Barcelona, but they like to keep an impeachable record. They won 2-1 last time when underperforming slightly, but with a full strength side likely to travel to Germany tonight, and even with the odd fringe player chucked in – I’d expect a win from them. Leverkusen need to win to qualify, but even that might not be enough. They do have a questionable back four – conceding four at Roma and plenty against the better sides in the Bundesliga. Barca are in great form, and like mentioned – a win is expected.

Olympiakos vs Arsenal: BTTS + Over 2.5 Goals @ 1/1 (1945 KO)

Arsenal NEED a win. Olympiakos are three points ahead, and beat them in the first leg so this could come down to GD if Arsenal win and level it up on 9 points each. At home, and with their array of quick, skillful players – the Greek champions will be a handful, while Arsenal will also be mindful that they scored 3 at the Emirates! This will either be very dull, or full of goals – and with Arsenal struggling with injuries, and defensively in general – I think it’s a solid bet @ 1/1.

This pays 3/1 as a double – if you really want the extra game, add Nuneaton @ 6/4 vs United of Manchester (who have lost their last four home games on the spin, vs top of the league!) but I’m confident on the double and officially sticking with that! There are also a few Serie B games, but trust has gone out the window with that league so leaving well alone!

Best of luck
