  6. Charlton vs Fulham The midweek Championship action continues tonight with relegation battlers Charlton hosting promotion hopefuls Fulham in a 7:45pm GMT kick-off at The Valley. The form of these two sides could not be further apart with the home side struggling to put positive results together with the away side enjoying a purple patch of results in the league as they look to invade the automatic promotion spots. Charlton's woeful run has continued in the league with Lee Bowyer's men now having clocked up just 1 win in their last 16 league matches. The Addicks will be keen to start picking up points as soon as possible with the club now in 19th place and just 5 points above the relegation zone heading into this game. One thing that can give the club's fans hope coming into this game is that the team has a solid home record recently having remained unbeaten in their last 3 league games at The Valley. The problem is that even in those games they've conceded an average of 2 goals per game so the pressure is on them to score at least two goals to get anything from these games unless the defence tightens up. Fulham are starting to show their full potential in recent matches. Scott Parker has witnessed his team win 4 of their last 6 league games as they have moved on up to 3rd in the table and just 4 points behind second placed Leeds. Three clean sheets in their last four league games is proof that the Cottagers have addressed defensive frailties and built form on the back of a resilient back-line. That defensive solidarity will be key if they want to take all three points here. I think the combination of Charlton's weak defence and Fulham's strong back-line will be the difference maker tonight. Both of these teams have shown in recent games that they can score goals but only one team has shown they can keep the ball out at the other end. Getting momentum at this stage of the season in the Championship is golden and Fulham appear to have found form at the right time. Charlton, on the other hand, are in free fall.

  8. The next round of matches in this section are spread over the next week with midweek games and then matches on the weekend. The FA Cup 4th Round means the schedule for League 1 and League 2 are limited. Check out the odds and ratings above anyway and tell us any bets you're thinking of placing for these games.
  9. Middlesbrough vs Birmingham Well, it seems that Middlesbrough are doing a thoroughly decent job recently of helping us win our bets in the Championship. The second tier of English football throws up a couple of league games tonight but our focus is on the clash between the Boro and Birmingham in a 7:45pm GMT kick-off at the Riverside with relegation issues still hanging over both clubs like an eerie shadow. Middlesbrough were enduring an appalling start to their league campaign but results have improved lately. 2 wins in their opening 17 league matches has now turned into just 1 loss in their last 6 league games to leave them 17th place and 10 points clear of relegation. Unfortunately, that was their most recent match which was a 1-0 loss away to promotion-chasing Fulham. Jonathan Woodgate's men can come into this game full of confidence having won 11 of the last 13 meetings at home between these two sides. Boro have also gone unbeaten in their last 7 home league games. Birmingham failed to hold on to their lead at home against Cardiff on the weekend in a 1-1 draw. It was a disappointing result for Pep Clotet's men. The Blues are in 18th place and just 1 point behind their opponents in tonight's game coming into this match. Just 1 win in their last 8 league games is demoralising form and a real concern is their defensive record having not kept a clean sheet since 22nd October. If Birmingham win this game then it'll be the first time they'd have completed a league double over Middlesbrough since 2012/13. They have also failed to score on each of their last four visits to the Riverside. I'm going to have to follow my instincts for this one and use that last bit of information to take a riskier punt and back Middlesbrough to win with a clean sheet. I've not really been impressed by Birmingham at all this season and I'm surprised they're as high as they are in the league table. I know Boro lost against Fulham but it did seem an out-of-character performance compared to recent displays. I'm sure they'll bounce back here, particularly with an improved display from their back-line. Middlesbrough to Win to Nil @ 3.70 with BetVictor Middlesbrough HT/FT @ 3.75 with BetVictor
  10. Chelsea vs Arsenal The midweek Premier League matches kick-off tonight with a range of appetising fixtures to choose from. I'm opting for the so-called big game of the round that's the all-London affair between Chelsea and Arsenal in an 8:15pm GMT kick-off from Stamford Bridge. Can the home side consolidate their position in the Champions League places against an away side that are beginning to look worryingly at home in mid-table? Chelsea are positioned in 4th place and 5 points ahead of Manchester United who lie in 5th place behind them. The form of Frank Lampard's side isn't great with the Blues having lost 6 of their last 11 league games at home. On the plus side, Chelsea have only conceded 10 goals at home this season. Only Liverpool boast a better defensive home record having conceded 9 goals. The fact they've also won 6 of the past 7 meetings between these two clubs should give them a confidence boost heading into this game. Arsenal come into this game in a state of transition. Mikel Arteta's side have only won 2 of their 10 league games since Unai Emery was sacked. That's probably understandable given Arteta's lack of movement in the transfer market and taking charge of a side that look bereft of self belief. The Gunners will be without captain and top scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for this game as he serves the second game of a three game suspension. The away record of the club is even more worrying than their overall form with just 1 win coming in their last 10 away league games but they are unbeaten in their last 5 away league matches. I'm not sure how to call this but I think Arsenal are a severely handicapped side without Aubameyang up top. The fact Gabriel Martinelli is showing promise up top for Arsenal is positive but it's too much to expect him to fill the captain's boots. Chelsea are going through a sticky patch with inconsistent results but I think they will have enough in the locker to win this one.

  11. The Championship schedule is reduced this week with some catch-up games in midweek followed by a single game on the weekend due to the FA Cup 4th Round taking place. I'm going to look to cover as many of these games as possible so check out the odds and ratings above then tell us your predictions so we can smash the hell out of these matches! @waynecoyne, @sajtion, @arvee, @canaries91, @Mindfulness, @betcatalog, @Magic0024, @malabgd, @CloughandTaylor, @Tiffy, @Gidds, @chris50, @PokerWolf1, @teddybear3011, @skyblues88, @allyhibs, @Icongene, @KikoCy, @willie82, @Neubs, @Papa Lazarou, @kulikTS, @Valkovets, @Pipoca, @padman, @Marek76, @silver fox, @neilovan, @HastGill1, @jazzman02, @andypaps28, @Kenton Schweppes, @rangers234, @newjack, @Kane91, @yossa6133, @The Sexless Innkeeper, @Xcout, @branskie, @Wanderer89, @Hitch, @four-leaf, @trevor8, @OppoArchitizerLady, @Power90, @THEODORE-007, @KeyserSoze1, @Ulrik, @Rey86, @freddie01, @gruja, @craigh, @BHAadam, @mrclubbie, @MrJol, and @the bastardian.
  12. Atalanta vs SPAL So, we are here again. Atalanta our former friends and now mortal enemies. Let's see if they can redeem themselves. They face SPAL in a 7:45pm GMT kick-off tonight at the Gewiss Stadium. I apologise for the belated preview but I've had internet issues up here with a local utilities firm doing work. Hopefully, you can check out this preview before kick-off. Atalanta come into this game in 5th place knocking on the door of the automatic Champions League qualification spots. Gian Piero Gaserpini's men have a game in hand on the side above them with Roma, the side above them, only 3 points ahead. Just 1 defeat in their last 6 league games has put them in good nick heading into this game. Their home form could be better for a team in their position with 3 defeats coming at the Gewiss Stadium already. However, they have won 3 home league games on the bounce in convincing style. SPAL are a team in deep trouble. Leonardo Semplici's men are rock bottom of Serie A and now 4 points adrift of safety. The game in hand means that deficit could be reduced if they get something from this game. It's now just 1 win in their last 12 league games and that includes an awful run of 5 losses in their last 6 league matches. Their performances have been more encouraging away from home as of late but the ELO ratings aren't so complimentary. Yes, this seems like a game that is impossible for Atalanta to lose. I know, we've been here before with the spiteful so-and-so's but this is surely going to be a game that goes to form. Atalanta are in decent form and they're hosting a SPAL side that are firm favourites to suffer relegation this season. I'm going to follow the trend set by the bookies and ELO ratings to back a resounding home win.

  13. Rizespor vs Genclerbirligi Apologies for this late Turkish Super Lig preview. The local utilities company have been carrying out work around my area and it's affected the internet supply today so I'm getting on a little bit later than I hoped. Hopefully, you'll be able to read this before kick-off in the 5pm GMT game anyway between Rizespor and Genclerbirligi at the Yeni Rize Sehir Stadium. Rizespor are currently sat in 12th place in the table and are now only 6 points above the relegation zone. Any faint aspirations of gatecrashing the Europa League qualification spots now seems to be fading even further with the club now 11 points adrift of 4th placed Fenerbahce. Ismail Kartal's side come into this game struggling for form with just 1 win from their last 7 matches across all competitions. The inconsistency of their home form means their fans won't be overly confident coming into this one. Genclerbirligi were a side I remember back from the days of the old UEFA Cup in the 1990s I think it was. Playing the likes of Aston Villa. Halcyon days. The club is now languishing in 13th place but they do come into this game in slightly better form than their opponents. Hamza Hamzaoglu's men have lost just 2 of their last 8 matches. However, back-to-back defeats by a 3-goal margin on the road does leave me wondering if they will have enough self belief away from home to get any points here. I'm usually reluctant to back the away side in these Monday night games in the Turkish Super Lig. The reason I feel Genclerbirligi could be worth backing is that they're doing OK lately. The defeat to Fenerbahce wasn't unsurprising and they only had 10 men in the loss to Besiktas. I feel they're worth backing for the draw but I actually think they could even sneak a win against a Rizespor team that are really struggling to find their feet right now. Draw @ 3.55 with VBet BTTS @ 1.67 with SportNation @black_baar and @vratislav, any thoughts?

  15. Liverpool vs Manchester United OK, there's only two previews in this weekend's Premier League thread because there's a full schedule of midweek matches coming up. The second game I'm focusing on is the 4:30pm GMT clash this Sunday afternoon between bitter rivals Liverpool and Manchester United at Anfield. It seems that these clubs are worlds apart in their circumstances right now but it was a draw when they met earlier this season. Liverpool continue to look like champions elect. Manchester City dropping points again today was another favour sorted for the Reds. Jurgen Klopp's side are now 13 points clear ahead of Pep Guardiola's men in 2nd place with two games in hand. Leicester are 16 points behind but have only played one game more than Liverpool. It's now 38 league games undefeated for Liverpool and this includes winning 29 of the last 30 league games. That single game they didn't win? A draw against Manchester United. The club has now won 18 league games at home in a row. Only 3 more wins at Anfield are needed to beat the club record set in 1972. Manchester United might be coming into this game as firm underdogs but they're actually unbeaten against the teams placed in the top four in the league this season. Whatever criticism Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has faced he clearly has a knack of setting his team up effectively against the more established sides. However, they do come into this game with their worst points tally after 22 league games since the 1989/90 season. This is a dangerous game to bet on. United have been turning it on for the tough games this season and I wouldn't put it past them doing it again here. You look at their bang average away record in the league and you want to write them off. You then remember this is the derby game for these clubs and form goes out of the window. I think the odds backing a Liverpool win are a little stingy but I think if we're going to be bold and bet on exact outcomes then it's worth a punt on Liverpool to get the job done but it should be a decent game.

  16. Crewe vs Cheltenham The League Two games offer a lot of tempting bets this week but my focus is on the match between Crewe and Cheltenham in a 3pm GMT kick-off this Saturday afternoon at Gresty Road. It's a battle between two teams vying for automatic promotion but will the favouritism shown by the bookies and ELO ratings be enough to warrant backing the home side? Crewe have done well so far this season with the club currently in 4th place under the management of David Artell. Alexandra had a purple patch during September and October but results have faltered ever so slightly since. They remain in the automatic promotion hunt just outside the top three on goal difference and even a potential title push isn't out of the question with league leaders Swindon just 9 points ahead. Scoring goals isn't a problem for the team but keeping clean sheets are with the club possessing the worst defensive record in the top 9 places. Cheltenham come into this game in 3rd place and only ahead of their opponents for this game by virtue of goal difference. Former player Michael Duff is doing a great job at the Robins. Just 1 defeat in their last 11 league games has seen them climb the table. Draws seem to be quite a frequent occurrence recently with the club drawing 7 of their last 11 league matches. However, back-to-back wins at home against Oldham and Walsall with three goals scored in each game shows their attacking play is reaping rewards right now. The odds and ELO ratings do back the home team quite convincingly. Cheltenham haven't been overly impressive away but having drawn 7 of their 13 matches on the road in the league they have clearly developed an ability to grind out results on the road. I'm not sure they have the defensive strength to keep Crewe at bay at home though. The home side should sneak this one. Crewe to Win @ 1.84 with VBet BTTS @ 1.75 with Marathonbet
  17. Cardiff Met Uni vs Caernarfon OK, so it's the final round of Cymru Premier matches before the league split happens. That's when you can tell spring time is on its way! I'm going to jump into the shark-infested waters that @Wiltshire Shot wasn't keen on getting involved in by covering the vital clash between Cardiff Met Uni and Caernarfon that kicks off at 5:30pm GMT on Saturday evening at Cardiff Met Cyncoed Campus in Cardiff. Cardiff Met Uni will be disappointed that the odds are firmly against them to qualify for the top half of the table. The Archers are in 7th place and 3 points behind 6th placed Newtown heading into the last round of games before the split. Christian Edwards will hope that his team will win and Newtown will lose allowing his club to qualify on goal difference. It's a tall order though. Cefn Druids are also level on points with Cardiff Met Uni so shouldn't be ruled out either. Caernarfon are safe in the top half of the table in 5th place and it looks like the Europa League play-offs are their final destination this season. The Canaries have perhaps been over reliant on their home form this season and failure to win any of their last 4 league games including failing to even score in 3 of them has been a demoralising downturn in form. It's a lot to ask for them to visit an in-form Cardiff Met Uni who have so much to play for and expect them to get something. For me, this game is all about Cardiff Met Uni doing their job to try and give themselves the best chance necessary to qualify for the top half. That would guarantee them a Europa League play-off spot. If they end up in the bottom half then there's a chance that they might not even reach that stage with Cefn Druids still battling away. I think Cardiff Met Uni should be motivated enough to do their bit. I'm just not sure Newtown will lose their game.
