Football Tips // 18.02.17


Another eventful week has passed us by! There were some huge results in the week, Arsenal getting hammered by Bayern, PSG giving Barca the treatment and even Spurs losing to their Belgian opposition!

Nothing great from me – 2/3 on Tuesday night followed by Monaco having their worst game in ages and Jong Ajax conceding late to blow the handicap bet. We have the FA Cup on again this weekend – Sutton vs Arsenal being the pinnacle on Monday night. Bar the Cup there is little else I fancy anywhere else on Saturday – too much risk for not a lot of reward, so sticking with an FA Cup double:

Millwall vs Leicester: BTTS + Over 2.5 Goals @ 7/5 (1500 KO)

Leicester are all over the place – Ranieri has really lost the players and in my opinion he will be sacked before they go down, which could both happen this season! It really proves that what happened was a ‘Hayley’s Comet’ moment in our lifetimes and that something like it will never happen again, or at least while we are living.





Millwall are in very good form, looking likely to pick up a playoff place in League One, while as we have mentioned Leicester are in no form at all. With changes likely to be made, I can see quite an open game ahead. Millwall have already knocked out two Premier League teams in Bournemouth and Watford – and with the events currently happening at Leicester, who’s to say they will stop them?

Wolves vs Chelsea: Chelsea Win to Nil @ 11/10 (1730 KO)

Chelsea are oh so good at the back – and even with the likes of Ake or Zouma given a game today, you’d have to back them to win to nil given their record this season. Wolves had new investors at the start of the season but are another club who have fallen victim to employing a foreign boss with no experience in England with a list of ex-clubs as long as Arsene Wengers’ excuses. Zenga was poor, and despite significant investment they are facing the bottom three at the moment – 3 losses in a row has seen them slip to 18th!

Weather they will be bothered about the FA Cup is another thing – get past Chelsea and you are likely to face another big Premier League team. That, or a solid base to go off for next season? I think the fans would take the latter rather than potentially playing in League One again.

For today, that is all. The double pays near 4/1, if not a little over depending on which bookmaker you go with.

Best of luck
