Betting tips - Arsenal vs Crystal Palace - 01.01.2017

Arsenal and Crystal Palace will face each other in a 100% London duel that will end the first part of Premier League campaign. The kick off is set Sunday at 16:00.

Arsenal had a great run few weeks ago, but then they struggled and lost the leading position. The Gunners are now on the fourth position, with 37 points, only one more than Spurs. Wenger’s team needs three points with any price here and if they win the game, then it is not excluded to see them back on the podium.

Crystal Palace have the best attack in England if we exclude the Top 5 teams, scoring 29 times in 18 rounds. Their top scorer is Christian Benteke, hitting the net eight times. The visitors have 16 points and a 29-33 goal difference, struggling in defense. Palace are the first ones above red line, with only two points more than Sunderland.

Arsenal vs Crystal Palace probable lineups:
Arsenal (4-2-3-1): Cech – Bellerin, Paulista, Koscielny, Monreal – Coquelin, Xhaka – Iwobi, Ozil, Sanchez – Giroud.
Crystal Palace (4-2-3-1): Hennessey – Kelly, Dann, Fryers, Ward – Cabaye, Flamini – Townsend, Puncheon, Zaha – Benteke.

Arsenal vs Crystal Palace prediction: Over 2,5 goals @ 1.53
Both teams have very good attacks, scoring no fewer than 68 goals together in 18 rounds. More than that, Palace struggle in defense and we expect to see at least three goals Sunday at Emirates Stadium.

Betting tips - Chelsea vs Stoke City - 31.12.2016

Chelsea will welcome Stoke City this Saturday from 15:00, UK Time, in the 19th round of English Premier League and there are no doubts about the favourite side.

The Blues are coming after a fantastic run, winning the previous 12 league matches. Hazard & Co are now in pole-position when it comes about title race, leading the table with 46 points out of 54. Chelsea have six points above Liverpool (2nd place) and the best goal difference in the league, 38-11.

The other side, Stoke City failed to win any of the last four league matches (D2 – L2). Crouch and his teammates are now on the 13th position, coming here after a clear defeat at Anfield Road, 1-4 vs Liverpool. Stoke have 21 points, seven more than the first relegation position and there are no concerns from this point of view.

Chelsea vs Stoke City probable lineups:
Chelsea (3-4-3): Courtois – Azpilicueta, Luiz, Cahill – Moses, Matic, Kante, Alonso – Willian, Costa, Hazard.
Stoke City (3-4-2-1): Grant – Johnson, Indi, Shawcross – Diouf, Imbula, Whelan, Pieters – Allen, Shaqiri – Walters.

Chelsea vs Stoke City prediction: Chelsea -1.0 AH @ 1.36
We went for Chelsea to win three more points in EPL this weekend. Anyway, we expect them to have no problems in front of the own fans, but if they win by exactly one goal, money will be refunded.

Betting tips - Burnley vs Sunderland - 31.12.2016

Burnley and Sunderland will fight for three crucial points in Premier League, Saturday afternoon from 15:00, local time.

Burnley were very inconstant so far, but they have a decent situation, being six points above red line. The hosts are currently on the 14th position, with 20 points and a 17-28 goal difference. The home team has one of the worst attacks in the league, this one being their weakest point without a doubt.

On the other hand, Sunderland need three points with any price here, since they are below red line after 18 rounds. The Black Cats are finding themselves on the 18th place, with 14 points and a 16-31 goal difference. Borini & Co have two points less than Crystal Palace (17th place) at the moment.

Burnley vs Sunderland probable lineups:
Burnley (4-4-2): Heaton – Lowton, Keane, Mee, Ward – Boyd, Defour, Marney, Arfield – Vokes, Gray.
Sunderland (4-3-3): Mannone – Jones, Kone, Djilobodji, Aanholt – Larsson, Ndong, Denayer – Borini, Defoe, Anichebe.

Burnley vs Sunderland prediction: Over 1,5 goals @ 1.43
Both teams are struggling in defense, proof that they conceded 59 goals together in 18 rounds. They also need maximum from this duel so I expect them to give their best up front and to see at least two goals produced by this match.

Betting tips – Motherwell vs Aberdeen – 23.12.2016

Motherwell and Aberdeen will be face to face in the Premiership 19th round. The game will start at 19:45, local time.

Motherwell disappointed this campaign, winning only four games in 17 rounds. They are in the bottom half of the table, with 17 points and a 21-28 goal difference, struggling in defense and also without impressing up front. Motherwell have three points less than 6th position and they still hope to reach the play-off.

On the other hand, Aberdeen start in pole-position, with odds around 1.67 for a victory here. They are superior from many points of view, with 28 points in their account and a 29-17 goal difference. Aberdeen have the third best attack in Scotland, only Celtic (47) and Hearts (32) being stronger from this point of view. The last five trips here brough to Aberdeen three wins, one draw and one defeat in the last game, 1-2 in March this year after they were leading at half time.

Motherwell vs Aberdeen prediction: 2 @ 1.67
We decided to go for a simple bet here, victory for Aberdeen, as the visitors are superior from every point of view and they need a victory with any price here to remain on the podium.

Betting tips – Juventus vs AC Milan – 23.12.2016

Betting tips – Juventus vs AC Milan – 23.12.2016

Betting tips - AC Milan vs Lazio - 20.09.2016Juventus and AC Milan will fight for an important trophy today. They will face each other in Doha, Qatar, with the Italian Super Cup on the table.

Juventus have shown a great form in December, winning all four games this month, three in Serie A and another one in Champions League. Their Serie A situation is an impressive one, being in pole-position to win another title in Italy. Juve have the first chance here, with odds around 1.62 for victory.

AC Milan failed to score a goal in the last two official games, 0-1 vs AS Roma and 0-0 vs Atalanta. They looked much better this campaign than in last couple of seasons and we see AC Milan fighting for the podium again. Suso and his teammates defeated Juventus in the previous meeting, 1-0 at San Siro two months ago in the domestic league.

Juventus vs AC Milan probable lineups:
Juventus (4-3-1-2): Buffon – Barzagli, Rugani, Chiellini, Sandro – Sturaro, Marchisio, Khedira – Pjanic – Higuain, Dybala.
AC Milan (4-3-3): Donnarumma – Abate, Romagnoli, Paletta, Sciglio – Kucka, Locatelli, Bertolacci – Suso, Bacca, Bonaventura.

Juventus vs AC Milan prediction: Over 1,5 goals @ 1.35
Juventus and AC Milan will give their best this evening in the Italian Super Cup and I went for at least two goals produced by this duel, altough the last meetings have not been really spectacular.

Betting tips – Hamburger vs Schalke – 20.12.2016

Betting tips – Hamburger vs Schalke – 20.12.2016

Betting tips - Hamburger vs Schalke - 20.12.2016One of the most attractive duels of the 16th round in German Bundesliga will see Hamburger hosting Schalke, today from 19:00.

Hamburger had a good run in the past few weeks, but it ended last round when they lost 1-3 to Mainz. The hosts are currently on the 17th position, with ten points and a 12-30 goal difference. They are three points below the first place out of red zone, fighting to remain in Bundesliga this year.

The other side, Schalke 04 disappointed too, being in the bottom half of the table now. Their recent form is not impressive at all, with one draw and two losses in the last three rounds. There are still many injured players in the away squad, but they are a little  in pole-position. Schalke won the previous trip here, 1- in September 2015.

Hamburger vs Schalke probable lineups:
Hamburger (4-2-3-1): Mathenia – Diekmeier, Djourou, Jung, Santos – Sakai, Ostrzolek – Muller, Gregoritsch, Kostic – Wood.
Schalke (3-4-1-2): Fahrmann – Howedes, Geis, Kehrer – Schopf, Goretzka, Bentaleb, Baba – Meyer – Konoplyanka, Avdijaj.

Hamburger vs Schalke prediction: X2  @ 1.35
Hamburger are inferior in our opinion, while Schalke need three points with any price here. Altough they have many missing players, we expect the visitors to win at least one point here.
