  3. FA Cup Predictions > Feb 15th - 18th

    Chelsea vs Manchester United The FA Cup still has one more treat of a game to offer us in the 5th Round. It's a 7:30pm kick-off between Premier League rivals Chelsea and Manchester United at Stamford Bridge. One side will continue their march to the final and one will exit the competition prematurely. Chelsea are a mixed bag right now. One minute, it looks like Maurizio Sarri has lost the plot with his team getting hammered 6-0 away to Manchester City and the next minute it looks like they're turning things around with a competent 2-1 win away to Swedish club Malmo. One eye will certainly be on the EFL Cup Final on the weekend so is that a fair reason to back United here? Manchester United are rejuvenated under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer but after 11 matches undefeated in all competitions since taking over, the Norwegian experienced his first taste of defeat in a 2-0 loss at home to PSG in the Champions League last 16 first leg. Can they bounce back from that defeat? This is a more even game than the odds suggest. As @allyhibs rightly pointed out, United are very tempting at 4.00. I can see them getting at least a draw over 90 minutes. Can they progress? United are certainly a more cohesive unit than Chelsea right now. There's still clearly issues under the surface with the Blues. If you're talking about teams that are more united, pardon the play on words, then you have to back the Red Devils.

  4. FA Cup Predictions > Feb 15th - 18th

    This reminded me about seeing this predicament from this punter I saw posted on Twitter last night. What would you do? Let it ride or cash out? Personally, I'd cash out and shove £50 back on United to win. I'm not sure they'll win. As someone said, would you bet over £1.5k on United to win this game? No!
  5. Yeah, I had a look through your club fan forums to get a better idea of the lay of the land plus checked out some highlights. Glad you lads won. Got a soft spot for Coventry. Always felt like you guys and Cardiff have a lot in common in terms of size, fan base, and poor ownership history. You might find the dread of the Luton game helps you. I've found with Cardiff that when we've feared the worst they often surprise me. I've been surprised that they've not been impacted by Nathan Jones's departure but obviously they're sticking with the philosophy that served them well. Would be interested for you to give us a quick few comments next week before the game when you know more about team news.
  6. Kilmarnock vs Celtic The SPL throws up a couple of matches on Sunday but the one I want to focus on is the top end of the table clash between Kilmarnock and Celtic at Rugby Park in a 4pm kick-off. The reigning champions will be keen to extend their lead at the top of the table in this game. Kilmarnock had looked liked launching an unlikely title challenge earlier in the season but their form has dropped off over recent weeks. Steve Clarke's men have drawn 2 and lost 1 of their last 3 league matches. Killie have then also failed to win in their Scottish FA Cup match against Rangers. The team needs a win as soon as possible to avoid plummeting down the league. Celtic suffered a dose of reality in midweek with a disappointing loss at home to Valencia in the Europa League. Brendan Rodgers side had been undefeated in 2019 before that loss. A return to league action will be a chance to get back to winning ways and potentially move 8 points clear at the top of the table after Rangers dropped points in their draw at home to St Johnstone today. The home side just aren't getting the results they want right now but they're remaining a team that is hard to beat. Clarke sets up his team well so Celtic will need to work hard to get the win. I think they'll do it though. I can see a hard-working 1-0 or 2-0 victory for the Hoops. Celtic to Win to Nil @ 2.20 with Betfair Total Goals Scored Under 2.5 @ 1.91 with BetBright
  7. Championship Predictions > Feb 12th - 17th

    Blackburn vs Middlesbrough The Championship is undoubtedly a cruel mistress @Tiffy and @sajtion. It's hard to muster the enthusiasm to back teams when it's essentially a game of roulette. Personally, I find that adds to the fun. I'm not going to be put off! I'm picking Blackburn versus Middlesbrough for my next preview which kicks off at Ewood Park tomorrow at 1pm. Blackburn come into this game desperately needing to turn around a bad run of three defeats in the league on the bounce. Tony Mowbray's side had looked set to consolidate their place in the Championship after promotion from League One last season but Rovers are flirting with the danger of being sucked into a late relegation battle if they don't start winning again soon. Middlesbrough have also failed to win their last two league games. Tony Pulis is winning no fans with his so-called "anti-football" style of play. However, Boro are in 6th place and continue to keep a number of decent teams outside the play-offs so you're unlikely to find any Middlesbrough fans complaining. It wasn't that long ago that this was a fixture being contested between two seasoned Premier League outfits. Now, it's a classic Championship match-up. Interestingly, 5 of the last 6 meetings between these two sides have ended in a draw. Can I see the same happening here? It's not out of the question by any means. Neither side wants to lose this game so a point probably wouldn't be regarded as a poor result for either manager. Rovers boast a very decent home record having only lost 3 of their 16 home matches this season. The bad news for them is that Middlesbrough have been just as impressive on the road with only 3 defeats in their 16 away matches. It's almost too balanced to call. Most of the evidence suggests that I should be backing the draw but something inside me is egging me on to back a vintage Boro away win. I just feel their performances of late haven't been up to scratch. Then again, Blackburn have been off the boil too. I'll have to back a low-scoring match and back a draw no bet option for Boro.

  8. FA Cup Predictions > Feb 15th - 18th

    Bristol City vs Wolves The FA Cup throws up a few potential upset ties on Sunday but the one I'm picking is arguably the toughest one to call. Championship side Bristol City welcome Premier League club Wolves to Ashton Gate for this 1pm kick-off. Will we see a shock in this game? Bristol City are in what can only be called a purple patch. Lee Johnson's team are now undefeated in 15 matches in all competitions. That run includes the Robins having won their last 9 matches in all competitions. They are a team on a mission and it's going to be a tough match for anyone visiting their home ground. Wolves are also enjoying a decent run of form with the club now unbeaten in their last 6 games in all competitions. Nuno Santo's men are doing themselves proud in the Premier League but they've already needed a replay in the FA Cup to get past Shrewsbury and this match will provide a stern test for them. This game has the potential for a giant-killing written all over it. Johnson's team are on one of the best runs he's experienced during his time with the club. Wolves really should be going all guns blazing to win this competition given their position in the top flight but I have a feeling a few players might be rested. Given the price, City have to be backed for the double chance here. Bristol City Double Chance @ 1.96 with MarathonBet BTTS @ 2.00 with Coral
  9. Serie A & B Predictions > Feb 15th - 18th

    Udinese vs Chievo One of the matches in Serie A feels like it is easy money so maybe I'm missing something. Udinese hosting Chievo in this bottom end of the table match-up that kicks off at 2pm this Sunday afternoon at the Dacia Arena could be a fascinating tie that all but relegates the away side or rejuvenates their season. Udinese are sat in 16th place in Serie A and just 1 point above the relegation zone. It's a precarious position given that the club has already changed manager once this season. Julio Velazquez was replaced by Davide Nicola but it has not had the desired effect. The club has won just as many matches in the league under Nicola as they had under Velazquez. Chievo are having a season to forget. The club has had three managers at the helm already. They started the season on -3 points as well but it took them 19 league games before they even registered a first win of the season. That was an uninspiring 1-0 win over relegation rivals Frosinone at home. This game will see Udinese have a massive chance to move away from the relegation zone. Chievo have shown they can be tough to beat recording 9 draws this season but it's the lack of victories that is causing them to be rooted to the foot of the table. Three defeats in their last four league games suggests relegation is inevitable with the club now 9 points adrift of safety. I'd be shocked if Chievo manage to take something from this game. They've only picked up 5 points on the road all season. Udinese have looked better at home recently with at least a draw earned in 3 of their last 4 home matches. I just think it's their game to lose. It'll be a war of attrition though.

  10. Bundesliga I & II Predictions > Feb 15th - 18th

    Schalke vs Freiburg One game in the Bundesliga this week feels like it might be a bit risky but worth the punt comes at the Veltins-Arena at 2:30pm on Saturday when lower mid-table sides Schalke and Freiburg meet for this encounter. Neither side is in great form so who will finally get a win after a drought? Schalke are experiencing an unexpectedly poor season so far. Domenico Tedesco's side would certainly have started the campaign expecting to be higher than 14th by this stage of the season but that's the way the cookie has crumbled. The Gelsenkirchen side started the season terribly with 5 wins on the bounce so it's been all about the recovery since. Freiburg sit just above Schalke in 13th place with just 1 point separating these opponents. Christian Streich's team will simply be happy with staying in the Bundesliga this season. So far it's mission accomplished but we've still got a long way to go. No win in the last 4 league games and a longer run of just 1 win in their last 12 league matches will weigh heavy on their shoulders. I'd be surprised if we saw anything but a home win here. Schalke are sh*t or bust at home with 4 wins and 6 losses. No draws. Freiburg have only won 2 of their 10 away games this season. The club might have lost their last two league games but they're the only losses in their last 6 matches in all competitions. Schalke to Win @ 1.78 with Matchbook BTTS @ 1.87 with SportPesa @Magic0024, @malabgd, @sajtion, @betcatalog, @DrO, @Neubs, @Xcout, @Banter1, @Bayern, @DonPaulo, @fhuefdsa, @Franger83, @Uriel18, @VYA, @EuroDream, @JPee, and @JKos, do you guys agree or disagree with my tips in this preview?
  11. Ligue 1 & 2 Predictions > Feb 15th - 18th

    Bordeaux vs Toulouse The focus of my preview in Ligue 1 this weekend is between Bordeaux and Toulouse in a 2pm kick-off this Sunday at the Nouveau Stade de Bordeaux. The home side will be looking to pull further away from their opponents in this game in the league table but it won't be easy. Bordeaux are in the middle of a poor run of results in the league. Gus Poyet's team are without a win in four matches in all competitions. The club is in 13th place and it's not looking like it'll be getting better any time soon. Three consecutive 1-0 defeats in the league have demoralised the fans. Toulouse will be feeling they can get something from this game. Alain Casanova has failed to get any consistency flowing through his team's results lately with the last 11 league games delivering 3 wins, 4 draws, and 4 defeats. The club is currently in 15th place but wins will be needed to ensure the 8 point breathing space between themselves and the relegation zone doesn't get reduced over the coming weeks. Poyet's team have been solid enough on home turf having only suffered defeat in 2 of their 11 home league games this season. When you combine that with Toulouse possessing a distinctly average away record this season with just 4 wins from their 12 matches on the road, you begin to feel this could be a game where Bordeaux might break the losing spell. Even when losing they've been tough to grind down so I think they'll get the win here. Bordeaux to Win @ 1.92 with MarathonBet Bordeaux to Win to Nil @ 2.88 with Paddy Power @Pep004, @sodabrab, @giraldi, @Magic0024, @allthethings, @DrO, @malabgd, @Xcout, @betcatalog, @sajtion, @FCNA, @silver fox, @thinkpink63, and @canaries91, do you guys agree or disagree with my ambitious tip here?
  12. La Liga Predictions > Feb 15th - 18th

    Real Sociedad vs Leganes La Liga throws up an intriguing clash this weekend when two teams busting a gut in the middle of the table and performing reasonably well at the moment go head-to-head. It's a 5:30pm kick-off on Saturday afternoon at the Anoeta between Real Sociedad and Leganes. Real Sociedad are on their second manager this season after former head coach Asier Garitano was relieved of his duties on Boxing Day and replaced with Imanol Alguacil. The change of manager has seen Real experience a bounce in results with the club unbeaten in the league under Alguacil and in 9th place in the league. Drawing 4 of their last 5 in all competitions isn't superb but it's kept their undefeated streak going so a win here would boost morale around the club massively. Leganes aren't doing too badly either. Former Southampton boss Mauricio Pellegrino had a torrid start to their season with just 1 win in their first 7 league games. However, form has slightly improved and the club is now in 11th place and just 6 points off the European qualification spots. Both sides come into this game in solid form. Real are undefeated in 6 league matches and Leganes have won their last 2 league games. The difference here will be that Leganes have only picked up 2 wins on the road all season. I can see Real continuing their good form under Alguacil and adding another three points to their tally.

  13. Coventry vs Walsall A number of derby matches are taking place across the UK fixture schedule this weekend but the one I'm turning my focus to is one of the lesser-known ones. It's Coventry versus Walsall in a 3pm kick-off at the Ricoh Arena this Saturday afternoon and with just 39 minutes by train separating these two places there's a lot of pride at stake here. Coventry come into this match having already lost to Walsall twice this season (even though both matches saw Coventry perform better) but they are also coming off the back of a solid 1-0 win away to Rochdale. That win saw the Sky Blues move up to 11th in the table. The play-offs are still a distant 10 points away but at least the small threat of relegation is looking even more unlikely now. Walsall will be hoping to take away the bragging rights for a third time this season but they'll need to turn around this dire spell of form they're in. The Saddlers have now lost their last 4 league games making it just 1 win in their last 11 league matches. That form has seen Dean Keates's side drop to 17th in the table and just 2 points above the drop zone with most of the teams below them holding a game in hand. The travelling side will be looking to their satisfactory away form to give them confidence here combined with the fact that Coventry have failed to win in their last three home league games. It's also just 1 win for Coventry in the last 7 meetings between these two sides in all competitions. Both teams have also scored in 6 of the last 7 meetings. There is undoubtedly a psychological advantage Walsall have over Coventry right now in the head-to-head. I've felt the same as a Cardiff fan against Swansea over the years. The so-called younger sibling in the rivalry often raises their game to prove a point and it seems that's certainly the case here. Walsall are in the midst of an awful run of results though and I think this could be the game where Coventry finally turn it around to get the victory.
