Re: Football (soccer) betting thread

14/01:

Blackburn vs Aston Villa @2.45

Rovers are going into their second match of the week compared to Villas first game since the 2nd (?) or January. I dont see how Blackburn can compete with Villa who are battling it out for their best chance of silverware this season.

3 for 3 tonight.....ended up partially hedging all 3 bets in the last 5-10mins(hedged to guarantee no-loss) gave up a tiny bit of profit but worth it I think. Still +5ish u tonight.
Blackburn suck......

Re: Football (soccer) betting thread

The 2nd leg of the Black/AV match should be a great game with plenty of goals. Blackburn needed to win tonight but now they have no choice but to go on the attack.Their goalscoring is hardly formidable even with Diouf and Roberts back. Their def away from home is awful(currently conceding a huge 0.65gpg more than the avg away team) having to attack the goal is just gonna leave their def (even more)wide open. Their best hope is to get an early goal then 'park the bus' in front of their own goal and pray they make it to pens for a coinflip.

Is very tempting. Torres, Gerrard, Benayoun all out. The team is god awful at the moment. 2.25 seems pretty short. The only thing that makes me hesitate is that I hate making bandwagon bets like this, betting against a team when they've just had a horrible result, since it seems so square.

Being taken to extra time Wednesday night then having to play a noon kick-off game on Saturday, losing Torres and Gerrard through injuries, and basically just playing plain awful football makes Stoke such an obvious no-brainer value bet here.

Stoke at 3.50 and upwards gets snapped up everytime here imo

Re: Football (soccer) betting thread

The Liverpool price is similar to the Sund/Liv game earlier in the season (which they lost) when they had injury troubles and they've got steadily worse since then.
My model's giving out kinda weird numbers on that one at the moment. It tends to do this when there's a huge difference between current season and previous season performance. I need to play around with some weightings, also I'll wait til tomorrow, see what the team news brings.
Also loadsa games to look at for today

15/01:

Caen vs Bastia @1.40

Top vs bottom of Ligue 2. Bastia are on a dreadful run of games away from home, losing 5 from their last 5. Caen should be winning this comfortably.

agree on this one, good value at that price. Bastia are awful, 2 goals in 9 away games. I got on em for 2u@ 1.47.
