Good morning one and all!
This is the first set of weekend tips so far this season (although its still fairly young) – the previous 3 or so attempts during the week have all been European competition, so its nice to actually get back to league football.
In terms of my accumulators – I like a mix of home and away matches, as well as goals related bets. This weekend the majority of the value is away from home – it won’t always be this way, but for this weekend at least its just how the cookie has crumbled.
Here are my 6 selections that form a 20/1 accumulator:
Mattersberg vs Salzburg: Salzburg Over 1.5 Team Goals @ 8/15 (Saturday, 1730 KO)
Zenit vs Rubin Kazan: Zenit Over 1.5 Team Goals @ 4/6 (Saturday, 1530 KO)
Nitra vs Zilina: Zilina Win @ 8/15 (Saturday, 1730 KO)
Atvidabergs vs Brommapojkarna: B’pojkarna Win @ 4/5 (Saturday, 1500 KO)
Young Boys vs Basel: BTTs + Over 2.5 Goals @ 5/6 (Saturday, 1800 KO)
Ufa vs Spartak Moscow: Spartak Win @ 8/11 (Sunday, 1300 KO)
There are a nice mix of leagues and markets – the Over 1.5 Team Goals is a price found on Bet365 and William Hill – if you can’t find it, the win is a little smaller in price and just as good.
The likes of Zenit, Salzburg and Spartak will be well known to most – same goes for the Swiss duo who have an excellent record for BTTS + Over 2.5 – with YB at home, this has landed in 7 of the last 8 games between the two, with 12 goals in 3 meets last season. Both are in scoring form in pre-season and the early stages of the Champions League in the case of Salzburg – Young Boys to enter soon.
Anyway – the rest. Brommapojkarna are a Swedish side, top of the 2nd tier with 11 wins from 14 – just one loss I believe but they are scoring for fun and have a great record against a mid-table Atvidabergs. Zilina face newly promoted Nitra – another smaller European side with a cracking goals per game ratio and one I feel will overpower the newboys.
As mentioned – just over 20/1 – probably closer to 20’s if you go with the wins rather than over 1.5’s.
Best of luck
