  1. Premier League Predictions > Feb 24th - 26th

    Leicester vs Stoke This week in the Premier League previews we start with a very intriguing fixture between 8th placed Leicester and 19th places Stoke. Neither team is in exceptional form with both sides absent of a victory in their last three league games. That run will continue for at least one of these two teams this weekend. These are two clubs very much experiencing different seasons. The Foxes are still in a decent position in the league with qualification for Europe via the league still a realistic opportunity and an FA Cup Quarter-Final match against Chelsea at the King Power Stadium next month to look forward to. The Potters are in turmoil. After sacking Mark Hughes and replacing him with the controversial appointment of Paul Lambert results haven't really picked up. The team is now 2 points from safety and staring a relegation battle in the face. In recent years, Leicester have had the advantage in this fixture. The last 5 meetings have seen Leicester win 2 with 3 games drawn. Their last meeting back in November did result in a 2-2 draw though. Leicester only have 1 defeat in their last 10 home matches. In comparison, Stoke only have 1 win on the road all season with the worst away record in the top flight. It's still too early to tell if the anger of Stoke fans surrounding Lambert's appointment is going to be warranted. He's a manager that has enjoyed success in the past but it's been a while. In Claude Puel, Leicester clearly have a manager who knows how to manage in this league. He might not win them titles but the club is still considering to be punching above its weight given their calibre of player. I can see a win for the home side here. It might not be pretty but I really fear for Stoke this season.

  2. It's the EFL Cup Final this weekend. It isn't often you see a game where Arsenal are the 5.50 underdogs. Perhaps that price seems even more attractive now after last night's result. Can Manchester City recover from their FA Cup exit? As I have mentioned time and time before, Arsene Wenger always pulls off the results you least expect. Will this be one of those occasions? Give us any tips you have planned for this game. I'll get a preview up later in the week!
  3. Europa League Predictions > Feb 22nd

    Arsenal vs Ostersunds FK Last week I submitted to the Arsenal bandwagon when I suspected there was a chance it might be a game they would bottle it. I'm fortunate that I went with that decision. The result ended up never being in doubt. I have a feeling this will be exactly the same. Unless Ostersunds FK pull off the performance of a lifetime then it could get messy. Arsene Wenger's side won 3-0 in the away leg. I can foresee a similar score-line here. I'm not entirely sure the Gunners will field a strong team with the Carabao Cup Final on Sunday. I still think even a back-up side should make light work of this game. I'd even back the Gunners to keep a clean sheet. Arsenal winning by a 2-3 goal margin seems reasonable and I think the odds being offered are quite tempting. Even a back-up Arsenal side will have some quality players looking to impress in an effort to gate crash the cup final squad on Sunday. This could be a painful away trip for the Swedish side.

    That's even before we start talking about Rupert Murdoch!
  5. Europa League Predictions > Feb 22nd

    Zenit St Petersburg vs Celtic I got done by Celtic last week. I was adamant that Zenit would steal a win or at least get the draw. It was not to be. It has changed my perspective of this tie completely. Everything I thought I knew has now been thrown to the four winds. Ideally, I would have liked to have skipped making a prediction on this but as only one of two British clubs left in the Europa League, I really had no choice. Roberto Mancini's side have it all to do. He under-achieved with Manchester City in Europe and I fear he simply hasn't learnt his lessons. He did reach the semi-final of this competition with Lazio in the 2002/03 season but failed to get past the last 16 with strong Manchester City and Inter Milan squads. Brendan Rodgers has hinted that the Bhoys would be naive to sit back and defend in the Krestovsky Stadium for 90 minutes. It only takes a single error at the back for Celtic to turn the tie and game plan on its head. The responsibility to attack is with Zenit. Celtic will undoubtedly sit back and wait to counter attack. This could mean we are set up for an intriguing game of chess-like tactics here. I am unsure who to back to win. It only takes one mistake or a solitary moment of genius to win a game like this. Zenit have shown their defence is far from the strongest but they will fancy their chances at home. The only issue is that they didn't get the away goal which adds further pressure on their back-line. Celtic only need the 1 goal to force Zenit to score 3 goals to win. Time and time again we see the away side do enough to qualify in these games. I think Celtic might well do it. BTTS @ 2.00 with Betfair Celtic AH +1 @ 1.80 with Stan James

  7. The draw for the last 16 of the 2017/18 Champions League took place earlier and the odds for those games are now available. Some clubs will certainly be happier than others. Real Madrid versus PSG has to be the tie of the round. Obviously, a couple of these kick off dates could change. Let us know your early thoughts on them all anyway. @vasilli07, @Icongene, @KikoCy, @DrBetter, @Duuc, @DrO, @immortal--, @Notorious, @betcatalog, @KingSoccertips, @discipline, @Pep004, @HastGill1, @ElPrincipito007, @salmonman, @DW_United, @allthethings, @MightyWell, @liamcorrigan86, @mijOsim, @dorleywilliams, @soccerprediction123, @jamiedavies02, @TOTTI3, @LePapo, @seifer365, @MPLouis, @Jack A, @JJG, @Pipoca, @neilovan, @wcz, and @WinningAdvice.
  8. Champions League Predictions > Feb 13th - 21st

    Sevilla vs Manchester United Two of the great European clubs of recent times come face-to-face for the first time in competitive competition tonight when La Liga side Sevilla host Premier League club Manchester United at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium in this first leg of their last 16 Champions League tie. Vincenzo Montella's side navigated their way through a potentially tricky group in the shape of Liverpool, Spartak Moscow, and Maribor. However, their campaign suffered a devastating interruption when former coach Eduardo Berizzo was diagnosed with prostate cancer in November 2017 before the club ruthlessly sacked him for poor results one month later. Montella has since stepped in and results have started to pick up lately but the level of opposition means the jury is still out on the Italian coach. Jose Mourinho has been suffering a harsh amount of criticism despite his United side sitting in 2nd place in the Premier League table with only the incredible Manchester City placed above them. The Red Devils made light work of a group that contained Basel, CSKA Moscow, and Benfica winning 5 of their 6 group games. My feeling here is that the tie could be won by the better manager. Montella started his managerial career in 2011 and has already managed six different clubs. His win ratio at his previous clubs has only exceeded 50% once and that was at Fiorentina between 2012 and 2015. His current win ratio at Sevilla is 62% after 13 games but the majority of those games were against far lower placed opposition. I would not be surprised to see United take at least a draw here and I'd even have confidence in them snatching a win. Mourinho was born for games like these and he knows exactly how to grind out games on the European stage at places like this. I'm going to punt for a low-scoring game with United looking good for at least a draw. Total Goals Scored Under 2.5 @ 1.75 with Betfair Manchester United AH 0 @ 1.88 with BetVictor
  9. Championship Predictions > Feb 20th & 21st

    We have Bristol City in the league on Sunday as well in the Severnside Derby. Lee Johnson has become a bit obsessed with us so I wouldn't be surprised if the Robins dropped the ball in this game due to being so focused on wanting to beat us.

    Haha, I just think I've been a bit too cavalier lately so needed to be more conservative!
