Real Sociedad v Eibar Betting Tips: Los Armeros overpriced at Anoeta

Having recorded pleasing victories last time out, both Sociedad and Eibar will be looking to continue their assault on the European places when they meet at Anoeta on Tuesday night. Little Eibar, although they’re not so little in footballing terms these days, continue to rise up the table and are proving week in, week out that they’re capable of tussling with pretty much anyone in La Liga. Given that they’ve performed well for some time now, it’s surprising that the visitors are as big as they are in the betting ahead of this, especially since Sociedad haven’t exactly been at…

Swindon Town v Gillingham Betting Tips: Teams to be evenly matched at County Ground

Two League One relegation candidates come head-to-head on Tuesday night as Swindon Town take on Gillingham. After losing five matches on the spin and scoring just one goal in the process, it looked like things were a mess both on and off the pitch for Swindon. However, they have now managed to pick up four points in their last two games, meaning they are now just three points off survival. Furthermore, the fact those points were taken from relegation rivals is hugely important. They may have scored three goals last time out but The Robins have generally been poor in…

Accrington Stanley v Wycombe Betting Tips: Rejuvenated hosts to continue scoring goals

Just a few months ago Wycombe were being touted as serious play-off contenders in League Two, but recently things have gone awry for Ainsworth and his men and they’re now without a win in six matches. An away match against a team who’ve really perked up of late in Accrington, isn’t exactly what the doctor ordered and the visitors could continue to feel the pinch at the Crown Ground on Tuesday night. With Wycombe very much out of form right now, this match represents a good opportunity for the hosts to continue their decent form. The bet that catches the…

Grimsby Town v Colchester United Betting Tips: Mariners to prove too good at home

This League Two match sees two play-off hopefuls go head-to-head as Grimsby Town, six points off the top seven, host Colchester United who are currently in the play-off places on goal difference. Grimsby may be six points off the play-offs but, with 13 games still yet to play, Marcus Bignot’s side will still feel they have an outside chance. Having said that, they are currently on an inconsistent run and without back-to-back wins since 7th January. The Mariners are better at the back than they are going forward and have kept two clean sheets in their last three games. This…

Rochdale v Port Vale Betting Tips: Dale can resume winning ways at Spotland

These two sides were sitting in the upper echelons of League One toward the start of the campaign but now find themselves 10 places apart with Rochdale still looking to put up a fight for the play-offs whilst Port Vale are simply looking to survive. Although they will still feel they have a chance of reaching the top six, Rochdale have dropped off quite a bit recently with just one win in eight league matches in 2017. The Dale had been quite comfortable in those play-off places a few months ago but are now five points off 6th. Rochdale were…

Walsall v Chesterfield Betting Tips: Good opportunity for Saddlers to bounce back

As they currently sit in 12th position, Walsall fans probably aren’t overjoyed with the way things have gone this season. The Saddlers are one of many League One teams whose campaign has been blighted by inconsistency. However, they’ve looked good at home in recent weeks so, if they can put together a run of results, they’ve still got an outside chance of making the play-offs, although it is a big ask. Luckily for them, a match against relegation-bound Chesterfield is likely to yield three points and might just act as a springboard for a late surge towards the top six.…

Scunthorpe v AFC Wimbledon Betting Tips: The Iron to regain winning thread

In recent weeks, Scunthorpe have gone from looking a shoo-in for automatic promotion to struggling to maintain their position inside the top two. Having said this, The Iron welcome a Wimbledon side who’ve found life tough on the road to Glanford Park on Tuesday night and can get back on track. Having set the pace in League One for a long time, it seems strange that Scunthorpe have been reeled in by the play-off pack lately, but it’s a funny old game. Graham Alexander’s side are now seven points behind league leaders Sheffield United, although they do have a game…

Bolton Wanderers v Bristol Rovers Betting Tips: Promotion chasing Bolton to bounce back

These two League One sides are both chasing promotion this season, Bolton through the automatic spots and Bristol Rovers through the play-offs. Bolton are currently 4th in the table and just three points off the automatic spots thanks to a run which has seen them lose just once in their last five league matches and even that came against table toppers Sheffield United. In their glory days under Sam Allardyce, Wanderers were exceptionally good defensively and that has been the case again in League One this season as they have the best defensive record in the division with just 27…

Bury v Coventry City Betting Tips: Visitors look dead and buried

Having turned things around of late, Bury, a team who were majorly on the slide not so long ago, look to have been presented with the ideal opportunity to continue their good form when playing host to Coventry City at Gigg Lane on Tuesday night. As things currently stand in League One, Coventry are seemingly dead and buried. With 33 matches gone, the visitors are rooted firmly to the foot of the table and sit a massive 11 points from safety. Even with the game in hand that Russel Slade’s men have, it’s virtually impossible to feel optimistic about their…

Blackburn Rovers v Derby County Betting Tips: Low-key start expected at Ewood Park

These two teams are aiming to succeed at opposite ends of the table this season, however, both are faltering at the moment with neither looking like they will achieve their respective targets. Blackburn managed to earn a point at relegation rivals Burton Albion on Friday night in Tony Mowbray’s first match in charge, but, due to the results of other teams around them, they are still three points off safety and sit 23rd in the table. Rovers have managed to score a couple of goals in recent matches, even before Mowbray’s arrival, and they have registered on the score-board in…

Aston Villa v Bristol City Betting Tips: Villans can build on recent victory

These two relegation battling sides both had good results at the weekend and will be looking to boost their survival hopes when they meet on Tuesday night. Villa managed to stop their win-less streak of 10 to record a decent victory over play-off chasers Derby County on Saturday afternoon, putting them eight points clear of the drop-zone with a game in hand over most of the teams around them. Facing Derby was actually quite ideal for Steve Bruce’s side on Saturday as, with Derby not being fantastic going forward, Villa could record a victory despite their own goal-scoring problems –…

Leicester City v Liverpool Betting Tips: Klopp’s men to do the business

Monday’s match would have been interesting anyway before the events of this week, however, since Claudio Ranieri’s shock sacking by Leicester City, things have gone up a notch. After getting their vital away goal in last week’s Champions League match, it looked like things were about to turn around for Leicester City and many thought they would now have a good chance of surviving in the Premier League. However, Ranieri’s sacking has changed the dynamic at Leicester so it will be interesting to see how they react in this match against Liverpool. The current champions are currently in the bottom…

Sporting Gijón v Celta Vigo Betting Tips: Low-scoring affair unlikely at El Molinón

After turning things around in Ukraine to make the Europa League last-16 on Thursday night, Celta Vigo get back down to business in La Liga when they take on Gijón at El Molinón. When Gijón have taken to the pitch this season, there’s rarely been a shortage of goals and this match is expected to bring about much of the same. At odds of 21/20, ‘Over 2.5 Goals’ is definitely a bet to go for here, while, at what looks a very generous 8/5, ‘Celta Vigo to Score Over 1.5 Goals’ also makes plenty of appeal, such has been the level of defending on…

Manchester United v Southampton Betting Tips: United to prove too strong at Wembley

Sunday sees Manchester United and Southampton travel to Wembley for the first major cup final of the season as they fight it out for the EFL League Cup title. Manchester United are in good form going into this match after a run of five straight wins and no defeats in seven in all competitions. Mourinho has always given the League Cup a lot of respect and, despite fielding a strong side against Saint-Etienne in the Europa League on Thursday, you can pretty much guarantee he will go full strength again here. Although they are missing a couple of key players.…

Tottenham Hotspur v Stoke City Betting Tips: Spurs can bounce back at White Hart Lane

Sunday’s solitary Premier League match sees Tottenham Hotspur host Stoke City at White Hart Lane. After winning so convincingly in the FA Cup last weekend, Tottenham found themselves knocked out of the Europa League by Belgian side Gent after a 2-2 draw at Wembley on Thursday night. This means that Spurs have won just once in their last four in all competitions. Mauricio Pochettino has got his side well organised and they have one of the best defences in the league with just 18 goals conceded in 25 matches. However, it seems that even this excellent side of their game…

Norwich City v Ipswich Town Betting Tips: Canaries to bounce back

Sunday’s Championship match is the East Anglia derby between Norwich City and Ipswich Town. Norwich had been on a good run with no defeats in their last six until they suffered a surprise defeat against Burton Albion last time out. The Canaries currently sit 8th in the table but are still seven points off their target of the play-offs. Alex Neil’s men certainly like to focus on the attacking side of their game and tend to look to outscore the opposition rather than simply win a game 1-0. They are the second-highest scorers in the Championship with 58 goals but…

Ingolstadt v Mönchengladbach Betting Tips: Hecking’s men can continue on the up

After mounting an astonishing comeback to advance to the next stage of the Europa League on Thursday night, Gladbach are on the up and have an excellent opportunity to continue in that vein on Sunday. The visitors will surely be confident of improving their league standing when they travel to face lowly Ingolstadt at Audi Sportpark. Since the arrival of Dieter Hecking, Gladbach have put their poor start to the season behind them and are once again looking a force to be reckoned with. The Rhineland club have found their scoring touch and, just as they have over the last few…

Hertha Berlin v Frankfurt Betting Tips: Visitors look overpriced in the betting

Having now lost two on the spin, albeit both somewhat unexpectedly and undeservedly, Frankfurt face the tough task of travelling to face a Hertha Berlin side who’re coming off the back of a very respectable 1-1 draw against Bayern Munich. With the hosts being in decent form at the Olympiastadion this season, it would be reasonable to assume that they’re the team to be with in this fixture; however, several of their results have reflected far too kindly on Hertha and they face a Frankfurt side who, despite losing their last couple, are no mugs. Considering Hertha have won just one…

Nancy v Toulouse Betting Tips: Everything points to a lack of goals at Stade Marcel Picot

Nancy play host to Toulouse in Ligue 1 on Saturday night at Stade Marcel Picot – a fixture that certainly won’t get goal-lovers excited. In Nancy and Toulouse we’re looking at two teams who’ve found goals very hard to come by of late. Couple this with the ultra-defensive nature of the visiting team when playing on the road, and the prospect of goals in this fixture begins to look very, very slim indeed. On this basis, the bet that catches the eye here is ‘Under 1.5 Goals’ at 17/10. In recent weeks, goals have been a rare commodity for Nancy. The…

Exeter City v Blackpool Betting Tips: Grecians can line punters pockets

These two sides are eyeing the play-off places this season but, at the moment, it certainly seems like Exeter City, who sit in 6th, have a much better chance than Blackpool who are currently 14th. Exeter had been on a fantastic run of seven consecutive league wins and no defeats in 12 until they met Plymouth Argyle in the Devon derby and promptly list 3-0. Exeter have somewhat failed to recover since then and have only picked up two points from their two subsequent games. Paul Tisdale’s side have managed to find a very good blend of attack and defence…

Doncaster Rovers v Accrington Stanley Betting Tips: League leaders can bounce back

These two sides have vastly different aims this season with Doncaster Rovers looking to secure promotion to League One by winning the title whilst Accrington Stanley are simply looking to stay in the Football League. Doncaster are still top of the League Two table with a three point cushion despite failing to win any of their last four matches. However, in terms of the last eight games, they are one of the most in form sides in the division having taken 15 points. Darren Ferguson’s men certainly like to focus on attack and it is no surprise that they have…

Carlisle United v Portsmouth Betting Tips: Cumbrians to continue their good form

This League Two match sees two promotion chasers go head-to-head as Portsmouth make the 700 mile round trip up to Carlisle United. Carlisle currently occupy the last automatic promotion spot and are five points ahead of 4th place Luton Town after a run of three wins in their last four league matches. Attack is certainly the basis for Keith Curle’s side with 56 goals scored in just 32 matches – the second-best in the league. However, this attacking style means that they are often exposed at the back and their record of 45 goals conceded is the worst inside the…

Bristol Rovers v Scunthorpe United Betting Tips: Visitors to come out on top

These two sides are looking for promotion this season but it seems that away side and 2nd place Scunthorpe United are much more likely to achieve their aim rather than hosts Bristol Rovers who sit in 11th. It was certainly ambitious from Bristol Rovers to look for a third successive promotion this season but in all likelihood it was never going to happen. They were making a good fist of it at the start of the season and it looked like it could rekindle a few weeks ago but they have now drawn too many recent games to be considered…

Oldham Athletic v Millwall Betting Tips: Lack of goals on that cards at Boundary Park

These two League One sides are in excellent form, albeit at opposite ends of the table, with survival hopefuls Oldham Athletic taking on play-off chasers Millwall. A couple of months ago it looked like Oldham would really be struggling to stay in League One but now, after three wins in their last five, they have managed to climb out of the relegation zone and up to 19th. The Lactics may still only be one point away from the drop-zone but, if they continue their winning ways, they should be fine. Goals have been and still are a problem for Oldham…

Brighton & Hove Albion v Reading Betting Tips: Hosts can gain back-to-back wins

These two teams are both going for promotion this season, Brighton & Hove Albion via the automatic promotion spots and Reading through the play-offs. After suffering a blip of two defeats on the bounce, Brighton are seemingly back on track with no defeats in their last four, keeping them within the automatic promotion spots. However, compared to earlier in the season where they were constantly winning matches, the fact they have failed to register back-to-back wins in their last six is slightly troubling. Defence has certainly been the Seagulls’ strong suit this season with just 26 goals conceded in 32…

Wigan Athletic v Nottingham Forest Betting Tips: Bogle to find the net at DW

This Championship match is a rather early relegation six-pointer as Wigan Athletic host Nottingham Forest at the DW on Saturday. Three points for Wigan in this match could take them out of the relegation zone into 20th depending on other results around them. The Lactics had looked doomed until a few weeks ago but just two defeats in their last five means they now have a fighting chance of staying up. The Lactics have been good at the back all season and have only conceded 40 goals in their 33 league matches, keeping clean sheets in 30% of their games.…

Newcastle United v Bristol City Betting Tips: Rafa’s men to prove too strong at home

This Championship match sees two teams with completely different aims go head-to-head as title hopefuls Newcastle United face relegation scrappers Bristol City. Newcastle leapfrogged Brighton & Hove Albion to move back to the top of the Championship table after a 2-0 victory over Aston Villa on Monday night (I hope you followed my tip for that!) to extend their unbeaten league run to seven. The Toon are pretty much the mould of the perfect team at the moment and top both the goal-scoring charts and defensive statistics with 62 goals scored and just 25 conceded in 32 league matches. Additionally,…
