Eibar v Athletic Bilbao Betting Tips: Hosts can continue their scoring exploits

Two Basque teams, and two teams who’re competing for the right to play European football next season, go head-to-head on Monday night as Eibar play host to Athletic Bilbao at Ipurua. Given the way these two are capable of playing on their day, there should be plenty of good football on show. Eibar have surprised many this season by continuing to punch well above their weight and really have been a breathe of fresh air, both in terms of the football that they’ve played and the goals that they’ve scored. Against a Bilbao side who’ve often leaked a few to many…

Newcastle United v Preston Betting Tips: Magpies can claim a high-scoring game

Monday’s Championship match sees automatic promotion hopefuls, and once title contenders, Newcastle United host Preston North End, whose play-off campaign has faltered badly. Whilst Brighton have stormed to promotion with their run in the last few weeks, and look like winning the league, Newcastle have gone right off the boil with no wins in their last three. After Saturday’s results, they are now just six points ahead of 3rd place and could potentially slip into the dreaded play-off places. The Toon Army have been pretty good in both boxes over the course of the season with 76 goals scored and…

Schalke v RB Leipzig Betting Tips: Goals to arrive after the break at Veltins Arena

Schalke will be looking to get over their agonising Europa League defeat on Sunday afternoon, but will need to be right on their game as they welcome an in-form Leipzig side. Since earning promotion from the second division, Leipzig have thrived in the Bundesliga and currently only have league leaders Bayern Munich in front of them in the table. Sunday’s visitors have played some excellent attacking football during this campaign and have scored plenty of goals. Such a style has often lead to them being involved in high-scoring matches, especially on the road. With this in mind, the two bets…

Arsenal v Manchester City Betting Tips: City to thrive at Wembley

Sunday’s FA Cup tie should be a very exciting affair as two of English football’s attacking powerhouses come head-to-head. This competition represents the only chance for either of these sides to win silverware this season so we can expect strong line-ups. Arsenal have had a miserable season in the Premier League and currently sit down in 6th and seven points off the top four. However, the FA Cup has been a bit of a saving grace and it is even rumoured that Arsene Wenger’s decision of whether to stay or go could hinge on the tournament. As alluded to earlier,…

Burnley v Manchester United Betting Tips: Slow burner anticipated at Turf Moor

In comparison with Sunday’s other Premier League match, this one between Burnley and Manchester United looks rather lame. Burnley may only be eight points clear of the drop-zone with 15 points still to play for, however, they should be safe for next season after an excellent campaign. They might’ve won just one match in all competitions since the end of January but the teams below Burnley are seemingly not good enough to catch them. A solid defence has been the backbone to the Clarets’ great season with only Middlesbrough having a better Goals Against record than them in the bottom…

Liverpool v Crystal Palace Betting Tips: Weak back-lines give hope to both

This match sees two Premier League sides who are on good runs of form come head-to-head as Liverpool host Crystal Palace. Liverpool managed to extend their unbeaten run to seven last time out as they recorded a narrow 1-0 win over West Bromwich Albion. This victory boosted the Reds up to 3rd with a six-point cushion inside the top four, although they are two games out of hand with 5th place Man United. Perhaps the most surprising element of Jurgen Klopp’s side’s victory over West Brom was the fact they kept a clean sheet – their first in eight matches.…

Aston Villa v Birmingham City Betting Tips: Goals at both ends in Midlands clash

Sunday’s Championship match is a spicy West Midlands derby between Aston Villa and Birmingham City. Villa no longer have much to play for whilst Birmingham, now under the guidance of Harry Redknapp, have all to play for as they battle to stay in the league. Aston Villa had a very slight chance of making the play-offs with a few games to go, however, with one point taken from a possible nine in their last three, their task is now virtually impossible. Having said that, with this match being a Birmingham derby, do not expect Villa to have their flip-flops on.…

Mönchengladbach v Dortmund Betting Tips: Hosts can score goals at Borussia Park

Dortmund will be looking to bounce back from their Champions League disappointment on Saturday evening, although if they are to do so they’ll need to up their defensive efforts against a Gladbach side who can certainly score goals. On their day, there can be no doubting Dortmund’s quality but they once again showcased defensive weaknesses both last weekend and during the week so it seems that they’ve been a little bit overestimated ahead of this one. At the prices, the bet that really stands out is ‘Mönchengladbach to Score Over 1.5 Goals’. In truth, it’s been something of an up…

Ingolstadt v Werder Bremen Betting Tips: Both teams can profit at Audi Sportpark

Having set themselves very much on the right path in recent weeks, Ingolstadt’s survival hopes were dented last time out as they slumped to a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Wolfsburg. Maik Walpurgis’ men now need to bounce back against the free-scoring Werder Bremen. In recent weeks, these two teams have been all about goals with the net being hit a massive 37 times in their last ten combined. With the way things are going, it’s hard to see anything other than a high-scoring fixture here, especially since the hosts really do need to have a go. On this basis,…

Grimsby Town v Yeovil Town Betting Tips: Another home win on the cards for Mariners

Mathematically, these two sides still have something to challenge for with Grimsby six points off the play-offs and Yeovil seven points above the drop-zone. However, given the number of other teams involved in these situations, I doubt these two will be seriously involved. Grimsby unceremoniously sacked Marcus Bignot a few months ago despite a relatively good five months in charge and have now replaced him with former Yeovil manager Russell Slade. The 56-year-old has won one and lost one in his second spell in charge of the club. The Mariners have been pretty average in both boxes this season with…

Blackpool v Cheltenham Town Betting Tips: Tangerines should have too much in the locker

This match sees play-off challengers Blackpool host survival hopefuls Cheltenham Town. Both are on fairly decent runs at the moment so this could be interesting. Blackpool currently occupy the last play-off spot after going unbeaten in their last two matches. They had lost the previous two so this bounce-back comes at a very good time. However, they need to keep this up as there are no fewer than seven teams below them who could still leapfrog them into the top seven. Gary Bowyer’s side have focused primarily on defence this season and they have the joint-third-best Goals Against record in…

Gillingham v Fleetwood Town Betting Tips: Trawlermen to keep their run going

These two sides have differing objectives with Gillingham looking to beat the drop to League Two whilst Fleetwood Town are still chasing automatic promotion to the Championship. Gillingham looked like they were recovering a couple of games ago when they picked up four points from a possible six. However, they’v since lost to Charlton which puts them back in the relegation dogfight, although they’re four points clear. Adrian Pennock’s side have been absolutely abysmal at the back and have the division’s worst defensive record with 76 conceded in 44 games. Additionally, they have not kept a clean sheet in any…

Rotherham United v Ipswich Town Betting Tips: Few goals to be had at New York Stadium

Neither of these sides have much left to play for with Rotherham United already destined for League One whilst Ipswich Town have survived the drop for another year. Although they have still not won a game since 14th January, Rotherham have improved a bit since their relegation was confirmed as the shackles have come off. The Millers’ goal-scoring exploits in the last few matches, four in their last three, are proof that they are now feeling very little pressure in their matches. However, they are still very dodgy at the back and have still not kept a clean sheet since…

Nottingham Forest v Reading Betting Tips: Fans should see a few goals at City Ground

These two teams have vastly different aims at opposite ends of the Championship going into the final straight. Nottingham Forest are simply looking to survive whilst Reading hope to keep hold of their play-off spot. Forest have been on a desperate run in recent times with just one win in their last eight. The arrival of new manager Mark Warburton has done little to stop this plight and Forest now sit just one point above the drop-zone. The Reds do have one of the best goal-scoring records of all the teams in the relegation dogfight, however, they have misplaced their…

Huddersfield Town v Fulham Betting Tips: Goals fancied at the John Smith’s

These two sides are both hoping to make the play-off spots this season. They are both inside the top six at the moment but a slip-up could cost them dear. Huddersfield do still have a mathematical chance of making the automatic promotion spots, however, with Newcastle seven points ahead of them, it looks unlikely. The Terriers have had a bit of a slump recently with three defeats in four matches but are now seemingly back on track with no defeats in their last two. Although David Wagner has brought quite an exciting philosophy to Huddersfield, it is worth mentioning that…

Friday night’s Bundesliga action sees two teams who’re chasing European football lock horns. With the way things have been going for this pair of late, a good amount of goals is anticipated. As they go in pursuit of a place in one of Europe’s elite club competitions next season, having a real go in an attacking sense has become a bit of a priority for both in recent weeks. While this has certainly yielded plenty of goals scored, it has also resulted in more than a few conceded. It’s fair to say that goals have been the order of the…

Norwich City v Brighton Betting Tips: Seagulls to secure title with a win

Friday’s Championship match sees already-promoted Brighton & Hove Albion travel to Norwich City who will be no doubt envious of their opponents’ exploits this season following their own rather miserable campaign. Norwich managed to take maximum points in their last match which stopped the rot somewhat. However, they have still lost three of their last five matches. The Canaries have been fantastic going forward this season but terrible at the back. They have scored 76 and conceded 66 meaning they have the third-best attack and third-worst defence in the division. Norwich have found the back of the net 11 times…

Manchester United v Anderlecht Betting Tips: Similar outcome to first leg fancied at Old Trafford

These two could only manage a draw in the first leg but, as United have the away goal, they currently hold a tentative advantage. Jose Mourinho’s side recorded a shock win over his former team and title contenders Chelsea on Sunday which means they stretch their unbeaten run to seven in all competitions. However, this match against Anderlecht is arguably more important in terms of qualifying for the Champions League next season. Defence has been United’s stronghold this season and they have the second-best defensive record in the Premier League with just 24 conceded in 31 games. Furthermore, they have…

Besiktas v Lyon Betting Tips: Turkish side not to be underestimated on home soil

This Europa League tie is teetering on a knife edge and, although Lyon won the first-leg, Besiktas scored that crucial away goal. Besiktas have had a week off since the defeat against Lyon last Thursday, their first since 10th February. Besiktas are five points clear at the top of the table and, despite that first leg loss, things are looking pretty good. Senol Gunes’s side certainly focus on the attacking side of the game and are the top scorers in the Turkish Super Lig with 54 in 27 games. Additionally, they have scored in 12 out of their last 13…

Barcelona v Juventus Betting Tips: Italian outfit to complete the job at Camp Nou

After securing a convincing 3-0 victory in Turin last week, Juventus hold all the aces ahead of this second-leg. Even though Barcelona are expected to put up more of a fight on their own patch, the visitors are in such a commanding position that they really ought to be putting this one to bed. Everyone will of course be pointing to the Spaniards somewhat ridiculous turnaround against PSG in the previous round; however, Juventus are a team renowned for their defensive nous and are highly unlikely to allow the hosts an easy ride. The two bets that stand out ahead…

Monaco v Dortmund Betting Tips: More of the same from principality team

Having conceded three goals in defeat on their own patch in the first leg, Dortmund face a tough task at the Stade Louis II on Wednesday night. With the tie set up the way it is, Monaco are in a strong position and will surely fancy their chances of putting their 3-2 aggregate lead to good use in front of a home crowd. The French side continued to prove their attacking credentials in Germany last week and are fancied to do the same here. The bet that stands out is ‘Monaco to Score Over 1.5 Goals’. Even at the odds-on price…

Real Madrid v Bayern Munich Betting Tips: Hosts to put their aggregate lead to good use

Real Madrid managed to break Bayern’s resolve on their own territory last time out and so go into this game as the favourites to qualify for the next round. However, underestimate the Germans at your peril. Real recorded a narrow 3-2 win over relegation-threatened Sporting Gijon to keep hold of their lead at the top of La Liga and, with a game in hand over rivals Barcelona along with their three-point cushion, they are now favourites to claim the Spanish title. We all know the attacking prowess of Zinedine Zidane’s side and it is no surprise that they have found…

Leicester City v Atletico Madrid Betting Tips: Simeone’s men to prove too good again

This Champions League match is balanced on a knife edge with Atletico taking a slender 1-0 lead into the second leg thanks to a controversial penalty in the first. Craig Shakespeare’s honeymoon period as Leicester manager is certainly over and they have now failed to win in their last three matches in all competitions. However, with the Premier League season nearly over, the majority of Leicester’s focus will now be on European football. The Foxes had scored 15 and conceded just four in Shakespeare’s first six games in charge but that excellence in both boxes has now gone downhill, particularly…

Bolton Wanderers v Bury Betting Tips: Good opportunity for Trotters

This Lancashire League One derby sees automatic promotion hopefuls Bolton Wanderers host relegation threatened Bury. Bolton have dropped off the pace in their last couple of games taking no points from a possible six in their quest for automatic promotion. However, with them having a four point cushion over Fleetwood Town, another Lancashire team, who are in 3rd, they should still be returning to the Championship via the top two. Defensive solidity has been the catalyst of the Trotters success this season and they have the best defensive record in the division having conceded just 36 goals in 43 games whilst…

After Sevilla dropped points on Sunday afternoon, Villarreal have a good opportunity to cut the gap between themselves and 4th place when they travel to take on an Alavés side who’ve already fulfilled their primary objective for the season on Monday night. As they sit nicely in 12th place, a massive 18 points clear of the drop-zone, Alavés’ season is all but over at this point. The newly promoted side have performed with real credit this season and have booked their place in La Liga for another year. Although they have been a tough side to face this season, there has been…

Middlesbrough v Arsenal Betting Tips: Gunners to bounce back at Riverside

Monday’s Premier League match is a contrast in styles as defensively orientated Middlesbrough take on the attacking talents of Arsenal. Middlesbrough have not won a Premier League game in their last 14 attempts which leaves them down in 19th, six points off survival, and looking doomed. Boro have been pretty strong at the back and have the fifth-best defensive record in the Premier League with 37 conceded in 31. However, they have been woeful going forward and are the division’s lowest scorers with a pathetic 22. Home form has also been troublesome for Steve Agnew’s side and, not only have…

Notts County v Portsmouth Betting Tips: Hosts can get competitive at Meadow Lane

These two sides have contrasting aims this season with Notts County now safe from relegation and sitting in mid-table whilst Portsmouth are looking to clinch automatic promotion. Notts County are on a fantastic run at the moment and have not lost in their last five, winning four of them. This means they have boosted themselves away from the drop-zone and are almost mathematically safe for next season. The Magpies have been in fine goal-scoring form recently and have found the back of the net in each of their last seven games. However, this does mean that their poor defensive form…
