Zenit St. Petersburg v FC Utrecht Betting Tips: Home side to overcome first leg deficit

The first leg of this Europa League tie produced a bit of an upset as FC Utrecht beat 2008 UEFA Cup champions Zenit St. Petersburg 1-0. Although they lost the away leg last week, Zenit will still feel that they can qualify from this round as they are clearly the better side on paper. However, the fact they did not score an away goal in Holland could come back to haunt them. Roberto Mancini’s side recovered from that Europa League defeat to record a 1-0 win away at Amkar Perm at the weekend. The Italian manager has often witnessed his…

Red Star Belgrade v FC Krasnodar Betting Tips: Another high-scoring encounter in Belgrade

The first leg of this Europa League tie was an entertaining affair and finished in a 3-2 victory for Krasnodar. Perhaps more importantly though, this result meant that my two tips of 333/100 and 5/4 came off! Red Star were not given the chance to recover from that defeat in south Russia as their weekend match at Borac Cacak was postponed. Having said that, this postponement means that the Serbian side go into Thursday’s match with fresher legs. As I mentioned in that tip for the first leg, the Red-Whites have been excellent at both ends of the pitch this…

Notts County v Accrington Betting Tips: Goals on the cards at Meadow Lane

League Two kicks off early this weekend as Accrington travel to take on Notts County at Meadow Lane on Friday night. As they currently sit inside the top seven, both teams will be hoping to continue what has been a relatively pleasing start to the new campaign. The hosts, who lost 3-0 against Coventry on the opening day, have won each of their last three matches (all competitions) and are so far unbeaten at home. Similarly, Accrington have lost just one of their opening four league matches, winning each of the other three, while they also put in a valiant…

Marseille v Domzale Betting Tips: Les Phocéens to come through a high-scoring affair

Despite being well-backed ahead of last week’s first-leg in Slovenia, French club Marseille couldn’t quite manage a victory as they drew 1-1. An away-goal does indeed give them the advantage ahead of this match; however, the tie is far from over and so there’s still plenty of work for Rudi García’s men to do. Juggling between continental and domestic action is never the easiest thing to do, especially when the Europa League means generally playing Thursday and Sunday, and it was fairly clear that Marseille, who drew 1-1 in the league at the weekend, were feeling the effects of playing away…

Skenderbeu v Dinamo Zagreb Betting Tips: Hosts can continue good continental home form

This time last week, Croatian side Dinamo Zagreb were hotly fancied by the bookies to overcome Albanian opposition in the form of Skenderbeu with minimal fuss; however, despite going into the game as short as 1/6 in the betting, the hosts were unable to get the better of a visiting team who proved to be more than useful. Mario Cvitanović’s men were a goal down inside the opening half and it took a 95th minute strike for them to walk off the pitch level. Hardly what you’d expect from a side who were long odds-on favourites. In front of their own…

CSKA Moscow v BSC Young Boys Betting Tips: Muscovites to see job through

One of Wednesday’s Champions League fixtures sees CSKA Moscow take on Swiss side BSC Young Boys. The first leg of this tie ended in rather hilarious, yet unfortunate, circumstances for Young Boys as defender Kasim Nuhu headed into his own net in the 91st minute. After a poor start to the season, CSKA have recovered in the last few weeks to record three wins in their last four games. Their improved form, particularly domestically, has put them fourth in the Russian Premier League table. The Army Men have traditionally been known for having a solid backline but offering little in…

Videoton v Partizan Betting Tips: Hungarian side to make use of home advantage

Having earned a very respectable draw away in the first-leg of this play-off tie, it’s easy to see how Videoton come into this second-leg with the upper-hand. The Hungarian outfit acquitted themselves well away from home and, having limited their opposition to very few chances last week, should feel confident of progressing to the group stages. Although Partizan, as the hosts, did cut out much of the running in last week’s fixture, they failed to really create anything clear-cut and it was indeed the visitors who missed the best chance of the game. With this in mind, it would be…

Crystal Palace v Ipswich Town Betting Tips: Both teams to have joy at Selhurst Park

Premier League hosts Championship in this League Cup tie as out-of-sorts Crystal Palace take on in-form Ipswich Town. Ronald De Boer’s arrival at Crystal Palace meant there was a lot of optimism around the club going into this season, however, reality has hit them hard and two defeats in two games means they are now 19th in the table. However, the League Cup presents a chance to pick up a result in a lower pressure environment. Dutchman De Boer was hired to bring an attractive style of play to Palace, however, although we are only two games in, the signs…

Accrington Stanley v West Bromwich Albion Betting Tips: Upset on the cards at Wham Stadium

Although this match sees a League Two side play host to a Premier League outfit, given this is the League Cup, this may not be as one-sided as many think. After nearly gaining promotion to League One via the playoffs the season before, Accrington finished in midtable in the 2016/17 campaign. They have had a relatively good start to this season, winning two and losing once, putting them up in the League Two playoff places for the time being. Additionally, they beat Championship side Preston North End in the previous round of this season’s League Cup. Stanley matches have seen…

Akhmat Grozny v Arsenal Tula Betting Tips: Home side surprisingly well-priced

Monday’s Russian Premier League match looks like a rather one-sided contest as Akhmat Grozny (formerly Terek Grozny) host Arsenal Tula. Oleg Kononov’s Akhmat side have been on a bad run recently and have now lost three on the bounce – putting them ninth in the table after six games. It is still early in the season but they need to pick up again quickly to ensure they are still in the race for Europe come the end of the campaign. The Chechen side have been so reliable at the back in recent years but it has been a completely different…

Ipswich Town v Brentford Betting Tips: Tractor Boys to keep up good start to the season

These two sides have had contrasting starts to the season with Ipswich having won all three of their matches so far and Brentford picking up just one point from a possible nine. After losing a pre-season friendly 6-1 to Charlton Athletic, many were questioning why under-pressure manager Mick McCarthy was still in charge at Ipswich. However, McCarthy’s side have defied the odds to make a fantastic start to the campaign and they currently sit third in the table. McCarthy teams are generally known for the defensive solidity but it has been the opposite so far this campaign where goals have…

Swansea City v Manchester United Betting Tips: Visitors to dominate in Wales

League leaders Manchester United travel to Swansea City on Saturday lunchtime in hope of extending their winning start to the season. Swansea just about stayed in the Premier League last term and survival is undoubtedly the aim this time around as well. The biggest news coming out of the South Wales club this week has been the departure of Gylfi Sigurdsson to Everton for a fee of £45m. The Icelander was key to much of the Swans’ attacking play and was the league’s third-highest assist maker last season with 13 to his name. The former Spurs man will be hard…

How much is the Russian bookmaking market worth?

The bookmaking business is considered to be one of the most rapidly growing branches of the Russian economy. It first started growing in the early 1990’s after a long period of gambling prohibition during the Soviet era. Now, after more than two decades since the collapse of the Soviet Union, the bookmaking business has become a fully-licensed industry that can satisfy the betting needs of more than 2.3 million Russians. A significant factor in the development of the industry came into play in the summer of 2009 when a law banning gambling (casinos and gambling halls) was introduced in the…

Under-21 European Championship Preview & Betting Tips: Big players for the big occasion

As the under-20 World Cup is now a thing of the past, it’s time for Europe’s best under-21 teams to come together in Poland for the 2017 renewal of the under-21 Euros. Having seen their younger compatriots lift the aforementioned World Cup less than a week ago, England’s under-21 side will be hoping to follow up with victory in Poland, although, with the strength in depth possessed by some of the other nations, they might just struggle to do so. Having said that, at 10/1, there will be plenty of punters who’re fancying the English to take this tournament. Big…

Champions League Final Betting: How do favourites perform in Europe’s biggest match?

On May 19th 2012, Bayern Munich took on Chelsea in the Champions League final in Munich. The German side had been afforded the luxury of playing their biggest match of the season in front of a home crowd and so were strong favourites to win in 90 minutes. With the familiar surroundings very much in their favour, Bayern were priced as short as 4/6 to get the job done in 90 minutes and when Thomas Muller gave the hosts the lead with just seven minutes left on the clock it looked as though they’d secured the money for favourite-backers and…
