Scunthorpe United v Bradford City Betting Tips: No shortage of goals at Glanford Park

Sunday’s League One match, Sky Sports once again showing their compassion for mothers on Mothers Day, is a play-off clash between Scunthorpe United and Bradford City. One of these sides could easily drop out the top six in their final seven games if they are not careful. Scunthorpe were in automatic promotion contention a couple of months back but a run of just one win since 28th January and five defeats in their last six mean they have slipped right down the pecking order into 5th and are now only inside the play-offs by four points. Where the Iron have…

England v Lithuania Betting Tips: Group leaders should have too much quality

After their friendly in Germany, England get down to real business as they host Lithuania in this World Cup qualifier at Wembley. England top Group F with a two-point cushion over Slovenia after a run of three wins and just one draw. Despite losing in the friendly against Germany on Wednesday night, there were positive signs from Gareth Southgate’s men which possibly show that there is a bit of light at the end of the long, dark tunnel that is English football. The Three Lions have been brilliant at the back in their World Cup qualification campaign so far and…

Scotland v Slovenia Betting Tips: Visitors can overcome a poor Scottish outfit

Although England are likely to top this group come the end of the qualification campaign, Slovenia in particular will feel they have a good chance of finishing second and possibly qualify for next year’s World Cup. Scotland have had a poor campaign so far and are now unlikely to even finish in the top two after poor results against the likes of Lithuania and Slovakia. They had a friendly against Canada in midweek – a big chance to build some confidence – but could only manage a draw at Easter Road in a lacklustre performance which will not live long…

Portugal v Hungary Betting Tips: European champions to come out on top

These two sides really need a victory on Saturday if they want to have a realistic chance of qualifying for the World Cup next year as Switzerland currently top the group by a comfortable distance. Surprise Euro 2016 winners Portugal are in great danger of missing out on the World Cup next year as they lost a vitally important match to rivals Switzerland early on in the qualification process. In terms of the other matches though, the Portuguese have been spot on at both ends of the pitch with 16 goals scored – by far the best record in the…

Horse Racing Betting Tips: 16:55 Lingfield (25/03/17)

16:55 Lingfield – Gnaad @ 2/1  The penultimate race at Lingfield on Saturday afternoon is just the right opening for the progressive looking Gnaad to record his second consecutive victory, and a first in handicap company. After two low-key starts at the end of last year, this three-year-old has shown up well on all three starts since reappearing back in February, proving that he is clearly getting the hang of the racing game. Having gone very close in a maiden over C&D, Gnaad ran another decent race in defeat at Wolverhampton in handicap company on his next start, before winning…

Horse Racing Betting Tips: 14:35 Lingfield (25/03/17)

14:35 Lingfield – Major Muscari @ 5/1 If the early betting is anything to go by then the first handicap on Lingfield’s Saturday card is all about the Shaun Harris trained Culloden, who’s currently as short as 6/4 in places. However, Major Muscari – a horse who happens to the stablemate of the aforementioned Culloden – is the one who really stands out. It’s been a long time since this one managed to get his head in front, but after a number of encouraging performances in recent times, that long awaited victory might not be far away. Despite putting in a…

Luxembourg v France Betting Tips: Visitors to outclass minnows

David meets Goliath in this World Cup qualifier as Luxembourg host next door neighbours France. There is surely only one outcome here? Luxembourg are unsurprisingly bottom of Group A after taking just one point in their opening four World Cup qualification matches. However, they have put up some rather valiant performances and have managed to score an impressive five goals – including three against Bulgaria and one against European giants the Netherlands. Unfortunately though, their defence is quite leaky with no clean sheets in their four matches – although they have still conceded fewer than Bulgaria who are 4th in…

Oldham v Sheffield United Betting Tips: Goals expected to arrive at Boundary Park

Having managed to get themselves in a commanding position at the top of League One, Sheffield United will be looking to extend their six point lead when they travel to take on Oldham at the weekend. However, the hosts are not the easiest of teams to beat so this may not be as straightforward as many expect. Although the visitors are currently something of a dominant force in this division, they’ve shown a few signs of weakness in recent times, particularly at the back. At the prices, backing Sheffield United to come out on top simply cannot be justified. There…

Morecambe v Mansfield Betting Tips: Stags to do the business on their travels

Only one of these sides has any real interest in these end of season matches as visitors Mansfield Town are chasing the play-offs whilst Morecambe are in mid-table safety with no prospects of finishing in the top seven. Morecambe are having a terrible time at the moment having suffered five consecutive losses and no wins in six. Thankfully for them though, they have built up enough of a cushion above the bottom two to ensure they are not under the threat of relegation. As you would expect from a team who cannot stop losing, Jim Bentley’s side are having problems…

Accrington v Grimsby Betting Tips: Stanley to get the job done at home

An in-form Accrington play host to a stuttering Grimsby in League Two on Saturday afternoon – a fixture that provides the hosts with a good opportunity to continue their rise up the table. On their overall achievements this season, there’s little between two teams who’re separated in the table by just three points, although Accrington do have a game in hand and could leapfrog their opponents with a victory. Given just how impressive they’ve been in recent weeks, a Stanley win certainly doesn’t seem unlikely, so much so that the hosts are worth backing to come out on top. Additionally,…

Portsmouth v Newport County Betting Tips: Pompey to have too much in the locker

These two sides have different aims in League Two this season with Portsmouth chasing automatic promotion whilst visitors Newport County are fighting for their Football League future. Portsmouth’s three-match winning run, in which they scored ten and conceded zero, came to an abrupt halt last weekend with a 3-0 defeat away to Stevenage. However, they are still in the automatic promotion spots with a four-point cushion over the aforementioned Stevenage in 4th. Pompey’s strength this season has been their back-line which is the best in the division with just 34 conceded in 38 games and clean sheets in 45% of…

Bury v Fleetwood Betting Tips: Both teams can profit going forward at Gigg Lane

Ahead of this League One fixture, Fleetwood, despite playing away from home, have been installed as the favourites and, based on their exploits so far this season, rightly so. Having said that, Bury are a rejuvenated side and are not to be taken lightly. Over the last few weeks, both of these sides have recorded a number of impressive results, particularly in their respective home and away matches. With this in mind, it would be no surprise whatsoever if both put in a good performance here. There are two bets that stand out and these are ‘Both Teams to Score’…

Shrewsbury v Bolton Betting Tips: Trotters to come out on top at New Meadow

Much like in Swindon’s clash with Millwall these two sides are fighting for different aims in the league with Shrewsbury looking to avoid the drop whilst Bolton Wanderers are eyeing an immediate return to the Championship. Shrewsbury are having a bad time at the moment with no wins in their last three. The most damaging of these results came last time out away at relegation rivals Port Vale which Shrewsbury lost 2-1, meaning they are now only two points above the drop-zone in 20th and a game out of hand on Port Vale who occupy the last place in the…

Swindon Town v Millwall Betting Tips: Lions to Roar once again

These two League One sides have very different battles going on at the moment with home side Swindon Town simply looking to survive whilst Millwall are chasing the play-offs. Swindon are having a torrid time at the moment and have lost their last four matches on the bounce, putting them down in 22nd, seven points off survival and with a game out of hand. The Robins have been pretty poor in both boxes over the course of the season with just 40 scored and 59 conceded in their 39 games. However, they have had their goal-scoring boots on in more…

Coventry v Bristol Rovers Betting Tips: Pirates to take three points at Ricoh

Coventry surprised many, including myself, when getting the better of Port Vale during the week; however, beating play-off chasers Bristol Rovers will be a much harder task. After some pleasing results in recent times, the visitors really ought to have enough about them to come out on top. As they’re just three points off that coveted 6th place, Rovers are still in with a shout of securing a place in the play-offs but need to continue picking up wins if they’re to maintain their challenge. A match, albeit away from home, against a team who’re already down, provides the visiting…

Kosovo v Iceland Betting Tips: Visitors should have too much in the locker

These two nations have a combined population of just over 2 million people but are now quite far apart in footballing terms. This is Kosovo’s first ever qualification campaign after being recognised by FIFA back in May 2016. However, things have not got off to a great start by any means and they have taken just one point from their first four competitive games, putting them rock bottom of Group I. The Dardanians have been poor at both ends of the pitch with just one goal scored and twelve conceded, unsurprisingly keeping no clean sheets. Kosovo did play a few…

Georgia v Serbia Betting Tips: Serbs to come out on top in high-scoring fashion

This Group D clash is an all Eastern European affair as Georgia host Serbia. Georgia are having a poor World Cup qualification campaign so far and are yet to win in any of their four games, putting them just one point above Moldova who sit at the bottom of the table. The Georgians have managed to score in all but one of their matches in Group D but it is defence which has been the problem and they are yet to keep a clean sheet, conceding five overall. The Crusaders are pretty decent at home and have only lost once…

Italy v Albania Betting Tips: Italians to prove too good in front of a home crowd

This Group G clash looks to be a bit of a mismatch as Italy host Albania. Italy and Spain dominate this group and are both undefeated in their four matches so far and they drew in the second round of matches. Although Italy are behind Spain on goal difference, they will feel more than confident that they will be in Russia next year. Surprisingly, Gian Ventura’s men have not been great at the back in this World Cup qualification and have only kept one clean sheet in their four matches and even that came against minnows Liechtenstein. However, they have…

Republic of Ireland v Wales Betting Tips: Goals at both ends expected at Aviva

This World Cup qualifier is an all-British affair and a crunch clash in Group D as both Ireland and Wales need to win this in order to really put their marker down to the rest of the teams. Ireland have had a fantastic qualification campaign so far, topping Group D by two points thanks to an unbeaten run of three wins and one draw in their four matches. The Irish have been particularly good at the back and have conceded just three goals in the group so far and kept two clean sheets. Martin O’Neill has picked an experienced squad…

Horse Racing Betting Tips: 16:00 Wolverhampton (23/03/17)

16:00 Wolverhampton – Cappananty Con @ 4/1 The 16:00 at Wolverhampton on Thursday afternoon has the potential to be a competitive little contest; however, the improving Cappananty Con has impressed in recent weeks and looks a good bet to go one better than he did last time out. Dean Ivory’s three-year-old appears to be getting the hang of things on the all-weather at a rapid rate having followed up his relatively comfortable C&D win with a fast-finishing 2nd over this trip at Lingfield in February. That performance last time out was certainly eye-catching, and he probably would’ve got his head…

Horse Racing Betting Tips: 13:50 Wolverhampton (23/03/17)

13:50 Wolverhampton – Doctor Parkes @ 16/1 (each-way) In Thursday’s opener at Wolverhampton, old-timer Doctor Parkes looks as though he might just be an outsider with a real chance. Stuart Williams’ charge may be an 11-year-old, but he has lots of solid form in the book and could quite easily go well in a race that probably won’t take much winning. In the past, this gelding would’ve no doubt been a bit too good for this lot – you’ve only got to take a look at some of his efforts off handicap marks in the high 80’s to work that…

Uruguay v Brazil Betting Tips: No easy time for visitors

Uruguay did lose their last match against Chile but overall have had a brilliant qualifying campaign so far and had won three of their four matches prior to that trip to Chile. The hosts should be confident ahead of this one. Perhaps what has been most impressive in Uruguay’s qualification campaign has been their home form which is currently the best on the continent with six wins from six games, scoring 16 goals and conceding just once in the process. People will perhaps point to the fact that they will be without talismanic striker Luis Suarez – arguably the best…

Argentina v Chile Betting Tips: Goals on the cards in Buenos Aires

There has been a lot of history between these two sides in the previous years, particularly in the Copa America, and Chile have gained the upper hand. This includes the current World Cup qualifying campaign in which Chile are 4th and Argentina are 5th in the COMNEBOL World Cup qualification table. However, one of these sides could quite easily miss out on Russia 2018 with the way things are going. Chile have been one of South America’s top performers in recent years and are currently on a five-match unbeaten run in all competitions. Going into this match though, Chile’s Argentine-born…

Scotland v Canada Betting Tips: Scots to prove too good on home soil

In terms of the international calendar, this is hardly a mouth-watering prospect as two relatively poor sides come head-to-head. Scotland are currently on a terrible run and have won just one match in their four world cup qualification games, including a lame 1-1 draw against Lithuania. This poor set of results puts them down in 5th in Group F and there are huge question marks over the future of Gordon Strachan. The Scots do have a relatively decent record in friendlies and, before understandably losing their last two against Italy and France respectively, they had won their previous four. Additionally,…

Germany v England Betting Tips: Visitors can get a result in Germany

One of Wednesday’s international friendlies sees the latest instalment of the historic rivalry between Germany and England. Germany are performing exceptionally well in World Cup Qualifying Group C with four wins on the spin, putting them top of the table. We all know Germany are one of the world’s best teams and are fantastic at both ends, hence why they have done so well this campaign and of course became world champions back in 2014. However, friendlies are one thing that Joachim Low’s side really do not care about and there is no doubt whatsoever that they will be focusing…

Oxford v Bolton Betting Tips: Goals at both ends on the cards at Kassam

The Kassam Stadium is the setting for two teams who’re chasing promotion on Tuesday night as play-off seeking Oxford host automatic contenders Bolton. Having fought back late in the day to overcome Northampton at the weekend, Bolton managed to cling on to their automatic promotion spot for another week. If they’re to cement their position inside the top two, Phil Parkinson’s men can’t really afford to drop many points, especially with Fleetwood hot on their heels. However, an away match against Oxford is a tough task for any team in this division, as play-off contenders Scunthorpe found out at the…

Coventry City v Port Vale Betting Tips: Brown’s men the team to side with

Two teams who currently reside in the drop-zone go head-to-head on Tuesday night as Port Vale travel to face Coventry City at the Ricoh Arena. The hosts are already dead and buried but Port Vale, having added crucial points to their tally in recent weeks, are on the verge of hauling themselves out of trouble. The visitors are now just two points from safety with two games in hand over the team directly above them. Considering that Coventry have already been condemned to relegation, this is an excellent opportunity for Port Vale to put valuable points on the board. At…
