Football Tips // 20.08.16


With this weekends’ 27/1 accumulator posted – we move to the smaller value doubles for the day, with an added 10/1 high risk double:

Degerfors vs Sirius: Sirius -1 Goal Asian Handicap @ 7/5 (Swedish Superettan, 1500 KO)

Sirius are the in form team in Swedish football at the moment – top of their league, with 8 wins in their last 9 games – including 5 by -1 or better. Last time out against the same outfit, they won 6-0, and with Kapcevic and Bjorkebaum having 21 goals between them this season, they will be full of confidence. I went with the same bet last weekend and they duly obliged, winning 2-0 with Kapcevic and Bjorkebaum grabbing a goal apiece.






Oxford vs Peterborough: Peterborough Over 1.5 Team Goals @ 29/20 (League One, 1500 KO)

Peterborough are about as unpredictable as a football team can get as far as results are concerned, but one thing they always manage win, lose or draw is too score goals. They finished the leagues joint highest scorers from 13th place last year returning 82 goals. Newly promoted Oxford have already conceded five goals in three matches this season so two goals from such a high scoring Peterborough shouldn’t be too much too find.

That pays around 5/1 – both excellent value bets in our eyes and backed up well with stats so far this season!

The following is our 10/1 double:

Sirius -1 Goal Handicap @ 2/1

Gillingham-Scunthorpe BTTS 2nd Half @ 11/4

One each from myself and Kieron – and both with big prices and good reasoning!

Sirius have won 8 of their last 9 games – and 5 by -1 or better, and most to nil. They beat Degerfors 6-0 in their last meeting and have two inform strikers with 21 goals between them!

Gillingham’s three league games this season have produced goals galore – all BTTS, and 2 of the 3 BTTS in the 2nd half alone! 7 of 9 goals in their 3 games have come in the 2nd half. Scunthorpe also bag most of theirs in the 2nd period – with 1 BTTS 2nd half in 3, and a total of 11 goals – 7 scored, 4 conceded (7 in the 2nd half).

Both very good bets, and combine for a 10/1 double. Kieron also fancies Arsenal + BTTS, while I like Goteborg + BTTS – if added to this double, it pays 190/1!

Best of luck for the day!
