Stoke City v Man United Betting Tips: Visitors hard to look past at bet365 Stadium

Even though this match involves one of the league’s big clubs in the form of Manchester United, I expect this match, in which they travel Stoke City, to be fairly uninteresting which means there should be a good profit to be made. After a run of no wins in five matches, two back-to-back victories means that Stoke City have moved up to ninth in the table as they look to once again push for European football. As mentioned on previous tips concerning the Potters, they have somewhat lost the defensive solidity that they were well known for under previous boss…

West Bromv Sunderland Betting Tips: Away day blues to go on for Moyes

This match between West Bromwich Albion and Sunderland hardly promises to be one of the more exciting of this weekend’s Premier League fixtures. However, its predictable nature means punters can do well. West Bromwich Albion may have lost their most recent two fixtures in the cup and league respectively yet they are still doing exceedingly well in the Premier League as they sit in a very lofty eighth place. The Baggies do tend to lose a fair number of games but these tend to be against the top teams in the division, usually winning or at least drawing against the…

Port Vale v Bury Betting Tips: No shortage of goals at Vale Park

Friday’s League One match sees two teams looking to avoid relegation this season go head-to-head as Port Vale host Bury at Vale Park. Port Vale may have lost their latest match against Huddersfield Town in the FA Cup, however, prior to that they had avoided defeat in each of their last two games, including one win, following a run of three losses. This puts them 15th in the table but still just six points off the relegation spots, fortunately for them, they do still have at least one game in hand on most teams in and around them. Goals are…

Horse Racing Tips: Wednesday 18th January 2017

16:05 Lingfield – Major Muscari @ 6/1  The finale at Lingfield on Wednesday afternoon looks like the ideal race for Shaun Harris’ Major Muscari to continue his good form. The nine-year-old comes into this contest as a highly exposed type with a record that is patchy at best; however, his record in contests such as this is encouraging to say the least. Having run in Class 6 events over this trip three times at Lingfield, this C&D winner is yet to finish outside of the places, while his overall record at this level isn’t too bad either. He may have…

Brighton v Sheffield Wednesday Betting Tips: Seagulls to bounce back under the lights

Friday’s Championship match sees two promotion hopefuls comes head-to-head as Brighton & Hove Albion host Sheffield Wednesday at The Amex. Brighton suffered a shock loss at Preston North End in their last league match which meant that they lost their position of Championship leaders to rivals Newcastle United. However, they are still just one point off top spot and are firmly in the automatic promotion places, ahead of third place Leeds United by a huge six points. The Seagulls are the most solid side in the whole of England having conceded just 17 goals in 25 league matches – a…

Atlético Madrid v Eibar Betting Tips: Away side can compete at Vicente Calderón

Having faced each other in the League less than two weeks ago, Atlético and Eibar go head-to-head once again as they meet in the quarter-finals of the Copa del Rey. When the pair took to the pitch in the league recently, it was Atlético who secured what might look like a routine 2-0 victory, although their hosts weren’t without chances and certainly have reasons to feel upbeat ahead of this one. There are two bets that catch the eye here and these are: ‘Both Teams to Score’, at a particularly appealing 6/4, and ‘Eibar to Score Over 0.5 Goals’ at 5/4. Thursday’s…

Southampton v Norwich City Betting Tips: Saints can come through a goal-filled encounter at St Mary’s

Although these two play in separate divisions, this fixture is probably the closest match-up of all three of Wednesday’s FA Cup Third Round replays. The initial tie was a high-scoring affair that culminated in a 2-2 draw. Southampton have not been on the best of runs recently having won just once in their last six matches which has even led to some fans, rather dramatically, calling boss Claude Puel “the worst manager Southampton have ever had”. As mentioned on recent Saints tips, their once reliable back-line has now fallen apart somewhat with just one clean sheet in their last seven…

Alcorcón vs Alavés Betting Tips: La Liga side to show their quality

Wednesday night sees the rapid return of Spain’s premier cup competition as the action in the Copa del Rey continues to come thick and fast. Second division Alcorcón face La Liga opposition for the second time this season as they welcome Alavés to Estadio Municipal de Santo Domingo for the first-leg of this quarter-final. Having got the better of La Liga opposition once when toppling Espanyol in extra-time in the previous round, Alcorcón will be confident of going well once again, while Alavés, in avoiding all of the big-guns, will know that they’ve been awarded a wonderful opportunity to advance to the semis. From…

13:55 Kempton – Daydream @ 25/1 (each-way) The opening race at Kempton on Tuesday afternoon is a typically competitive looking Class 6 handicap; however, one runner who could potentially outrun his hefty price-tag is Tony Newcombe’s Daydream. This lightly-raced filly hasn’t really shown much to date, but didn’t run completely without promise when recently returning to action over 5f at Wolverhampton 11 days ago. Having been off the track for 242 days, the four-year-old acquitted herself reasonably well in 6th place, keeping on well at the finish. With that run under her belt, it wouldn’t be a surprise if she…

Burnley v Sunderland Betting Tips: Home form too strong to ignore

The only all-Premier League FA Cup 3rd round replay taking place sees Burnley host Sunderland after a rather drab 0-0 in the North East just over a week ago. My favourite Premier League tip of the weekend was certainly Burnley to beat Southampton on Saturday. I could not believe the price on the hosts, especially given their recent form, and it paid dividends. The Clarets have now only lost one of their last five matches, winning three of them. As mentioned numerous times when writing about Burnley, their solid defence is what allows them to achieve results. Sean Dyche’s men…

Fleetwood v Bristol City Betting Tips: League One side can add to visitors’ woes

In-form League One side Fleetwood Town host out-of-sorts Championship side Bristol City in this FA Cup 3rd round replay after a 0-0 draw in the initial tie. Fleetwood are one of the most in-form sides in England at the moment having extended their 13-match unbeaten run by beating Bristol Rovers at the weekend, lifting Uwe Rosler’s side into the play-off places. The defence has certainly been the bedrock to The Trawlermen’s relative success in recent times having kept four clean sheets in their last five matches in all competitions whilst their overall record of 29 goals conceded in just 26…

Lincoln City v Ipswich Betting Tips: Goals expected at Sincil Bank

Having finished all-square (2-2) less than two weeks ago, Lincoln and Ipswich take to the pitch for a second time as they go head-to-head for a place in the FA Cup 4th round at Sincil Bank. Given the respective standing of these two clubs, Ipswich will have been disappointed not to have got the job done at the first time of asking. However, considering how that game went, they were perhaps fortunate to earn a replay. Having gone behind early on, despite equalising shortly after, the Championship side were unable to take control of the game, so much so that…

Sporting Gijón v Eibar Betting Tips: Another tough evening in store for Rojiblancos

A struggling Sporting Gijón side play host to a thriving Eibar at El Molinón on Sunday evening. Having enjoyed contrasting campaigns so far, these two approach this fixture in dissimilar form. Gijón find themselves involved in yet another relegation scrap, while Eibar continue to perform above what many would say is their station and sit nicely in 10th position. The home side are without a league win since early September and are hard to fancy from a betting point of view. On the other hand, it’s easy to feel good about Eibar’s chances and the visitors are the team to be with.…

Celta Vigo v Alavés Betting Tips: Basque side not without a shout at Balaídos

A team who continue to win at home play host to a team who just won’t lose on the road in La Liga on Sunday as Celta Vigo welcome Alavés to Balaídos. Based on their respective expectations at the start of the campaign, it’s probably fair to say that both Celta and Alavés will be happy with the way things have gone so far. The hosts are picking up points more often than not, especially at home, and aren’t too far off the European spots, while Alavés, as a newly promoted side, have certainly surprised a few and are sitting in a rather lofty…

Man United v Liverpool Betting Tips: Rooney to deliver on the big stage once again

The highlight of Sunday’s Premier League fixture list is the match between historic rivals Manchester United and Liverpool. Manchester United are on a fantastic run at the moment having won their last nine matches in all competitions which means they are only three points off the top four and still competing in both the League and FA Cup as well as the Europa League. Jose Mourinho’s team have pretty much the perfect combination right now with both a strong-looking attack and a menacing defence. At the back, the unlikely pairing of Rojo and Jones seems to be keeping the opposition…

Everton v Man City Betting Tips: Goodison could be set for stalemate

This match is certainly the secondary clash between Merseyside and Manchester compared this Sunday; however, these are two good sides who should put on a decent show. Despite losing their last match in the FA Cup against league champions Leicester City, Everton have actually been on a good run in the Premier League having won two of their last three and not losing any of that trio of games, boosting them up to 7th in the table. The Toffees’ defence has been back on form with two clean sheets in those two aforementioned wins which means their ‘Goals Against’ record…

13:40 Wetherby – El Massivo @ 5/1 The 13:40 at Wetherby looks to be an ideal opportunity for Harriet Bethell’s El Massivo to resume winning ways. The seven-year-old has run a couple of nice races in defeat since winning over C&D back in April of last year and comes into this race with plenty in favour. He’s back down to his last winning mark, has been in decent form of late and returns to the scene of his last victory. Having disappointed on his first couple of runs this season, it would appear as though El Massivo is now back…

Bolton v Swindon Betting Tips: Trotters to prove too good on home soil

High-flying Bolton play host to a struggling Swindon outfit at The Macron on Saturday afternoon in a match where securing three points is a must for both. Swindon haven’t enjoyed a particularly good campaign so far and if they’re not careful could find themselves sucked into the relegation scrap. On the other hand, Bolton have established themselves as one of the divisions strongest teams this season, but will need to continue winning matches in order to keep the pace with the league’s leading pair. This match against a side who’ve found it tough to find their feet of late, especially…

Preston v Brighton Betting Tips: Hughton’s men to once again deliver the goods

Off the back of being dealt a 90th minute hammer-blow from Arsenal in the FA Cup, Preston welcome league leaders Brighton to Deepdale on Saturday afternoon as the focus of both switches back to matters in the Championship. The hosts haven’t exactly been at their best recently, especially at home. Just win one in their last six on home soil is one of the main reasons as to why Preston have failed to break free from their mid-table shackles. As for the visitors, Brighton have been in quite scintillating form lately. Five league wins on the bounce has seen the…

Cambridge v Blackpool Betting Tips: Hosts to pick up where they left off in League Two

This League Two clash is between two sides who are aiming for the play-offs this season as Cambridge United host Blackpool at The Abbey Stadium. Cambridge have been in fantastic form recently having dropped points just once in their last seven matches and even that was a draw, placing them in 9th and just one point off the play-offs, whilst they also put up a good fight in their FA Cup loss against Championship promotion hopefuls Leeds United on Monday night. As you would expect from a team in their form, Shaun Derry’s side are pretty good at both ends…

Wolves v Aston Villa Betting Tips: Bookings the way to go at Molineux

Saturday’s late Championship kick-off is a West Midlands derby between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Aston Villa at Molineux. Former Villa manager Paul Lambert has turned things around at Wolves having lost just once in their last four league matches, pushing them up to 16th and five points clear of the bottom three, whilst they also caused one of the upsets of the round in the FA Cup at the weekend as they recorded a 2-0 victory away at Premier League Stoke City. Wolves have realised that defence is not their strong point, as shown by the fact they have conceded 34…

Burton v Wigan Betting Tips: Hosts ready to take three points at The Pirelli

This Championship match is a relegation clash between newly-promoted Burton Albion and Wigan Athletic – both of whom are in terrible form at the moment. Burton are playing in this league for the first time in their history but are arguably making a good fist of it as they sit outside the drop-zone with 25 games gone. However, a poor recent run of five losses in their last six means they are only outside the bottom three by just a single point. Despite this recent losing streak, overall, the Brewers have actually been pretty good at the back with their…

Burnley v Southampton Betting Tips: Dyche’s men can line punters’ pockets

This Premier League match is currently a mid-table clash between Burnley and Southampton. Additionally, with neither of these two scoring many goals, we could be in for a tight affair at Turf Moor on Saturday afternoon.  Burnley are not on a fantastic run at the moment having failed to collect three points in either of their last two matches in all competitions, however, two league victories prior to that keeps them in the upper reaches of the bottom half, while, perhaps more importantly, they have an eight point cushion between them and the drop-zone. As expected, the Clarets are an…

Leeds v Derby Betting Tips: Monk’s men to continue on the up

This match sees two sides towards the top of the Championship table go head-to-head at Elland Road. It also sees two of the league’s most defensively sound teams go to work on each other. Leeds are currently on a fantastic run having won all but one of their last six matches in all competitions, including a spirited fight back against lower league Cambridge United in the FA Cup on Monday night. This excellent form has put them right in the play-off mix as they currently sit fifth and five points ahead of seventh. Garry Monk’s team have a good balance…

Reading v Q.P.R. Betting Tips: Visitors’ revival to come to an end at Madejski

Thursday’s Championship match sees promotion pushers Reading take on relegation strugglers Queens Park Rangers at The Madejski Stadium. Reading are currently on a fantastic run in the second tier with nine wins in their last 11 matches putting them an impressive third in the table. They may have been hammered 4-0 by Manchester United in their recent FA Cup tie but there is no danger that that will have knocked their confidence going into this match against Q.P.R. Jaap Stam has got his Reading side playing good football and they are an attack-minded side who score goals as proved by…

Southampton v Liverpool Betting Tips: Visitors to profit from a high-scoring first leg

This second EFL Cup semi-final looked like it would be quite finely balanced a few weeks ago. Now however, it looks like it will only be swinging one way. Southampton had been on a good run until a few weeks ago, but they’re currently without a win in four, losing their last three league matches before only managing a 2-2 draw away at Championship Norwich City. The Saints are still in the Premier League’s top-10 but will need to improve drastically to maintain such a position. However, this League Cup competition gives them a good chance of winning some silverware…
