Top 5 Bets of the Week
It could be Arsenal’s last shot at getting back in the title race and West Ham are still hoping for a place in the coveted top 4 – that’s what Gabriele Marcotti said about the London derby on April, 9. Although having gone 2-0 down early on, not many expected the Hammers to level the game in the last two minutes of the first half. Having then gone 3-2 down the only thing Arsene Wenger’s men could do was salvage a point (3-3) – exactly as our pundit predicted. The odds on a score draw at 4.20 were too good to miss.
The stakes were too high for both teams in the Champions League clash between Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid. And when the pressure is high, players’ can easily crack. That’s why our journalist Pavel Lokhovinin saw the possibility of a a red card in game as being very high indeed. In the 35th minute Fernando Torres was sent off, landing a very nice 4.00 winner.
Borussia Dortmund rested eight (!) players in the Ruhr derby in order to save themselves for the second leg against Liverpool in the Europa League. That weakened Tomas Tuchel’s team and gave Schalke 04 a chance to steal some points from Die Schwarzgelben. The draw at 3.85 was considered really good value by Tancredi Palmeri, and he was duly proven right as the two teams played out a 2-2 draw.
It was clear to Mark O’Haire that keeping a clean sheet against Barcelona would require a monumental effort from Atletico Madrid in the CL. So with Atletico netting in five of their most recent seven trips to Barcelona and losing both La Liga meetings 2:1 this season, a repeat scenario (Barcelona to win and both teams to score) seemed entirely plausible. Two goals from Luis Suarez in respond to the Torres’ strike sealed a very nice 3.80 winner!
Our editor-in-chief Artur Petrosyan was one of those who expected a solid performance from Liverpool against Dortmund in the first leg of the Europa League quarter-final. His tip was to back Draw no bet for the Jurgen Klopp’s team in the 1st half. A goal from Divock Origi in the 36th minute secured both a 1-0 half time lead for the visitors and a 3.35 winner for Artur.
