Not much alternative sport for today - so have another on us - —————Atletico are not at the same level has they have been over the past four seasons. While Diego Simeone’s side are still fourth in La Liga, a season 5-5-1 confirms they are not dominating anymore. At the weekend, Atletico could only draw in Leganes (1-1), and that was after leading 0-1. In the reverse fixture, Dortmund trashed the Spanish side 4-0, and for us it was a demonstration of what can happen when a team is ready to get into their opponents face! The hosts continue to be without Costa, Godin, Savic, Koke and Lemar, all key players! The visitors lead the Bundesliga by 4 points, and with Bayern faltering Lucien Favre’s unbeaten side are looking like serious championship contenders. At the weekend, Borussia controlled the match to win a tough match in Wolfsburg (0-1), and they are the perfect 3/3 in this phase of the champions league! Just Diallo and Schmelzer out for the visitor. Atletico are under pressure to take the game forward tonight, that alone could leave them vulnerable to a hard hitting attack! From everything we have witnessed, these odds are wrongly stacked!

With international bets we have a WHOPPING +21.9% ROI (+39.2 points profit) - firstname.lastname@example.org ———— Both teams need a win here, otherwise they are just about out of this seasons Champions league. With that in mind, we expect caution to be thrown to the wind and an entertaining (attacking) game is on the cards. With all due respect to the visitors, PSV should never have been allowed back into the reverse match. In fact, the Premier league club was all over the Eredivisie champions, and on any normal day the Maurice Pochettino’s men would have won with a bit to spare! One backlash from that recent match is Hugo Lloris was red carded, he’s certainly out. Mousa Dembele is also out after picking up an injury against Wolves at the weekend.Eric Dier, Danny Rose, Jan Vertoghen and Victor Wanyama are all long term absentees! On a more positive note, Dele Alli is back in business and likely to start! PSV are the perfect 11-0-0 in the Dutch league, and at the weekend they beat Vitesse (1-0). However, it was far from an impressive display against a team which had been reduced to 10 men following just 14 minutes, so chances are they had one eye on this game! The images from that first match linger on in our minds, and for that reason we can’t imagine anything other than a Tottenham win!
FLAT TO THE MAX must be highly regarded by connections. Afterall, he started at very short odds on his debut, and the bookies are going just 11/8 here. Suffice to say we are not keen on taking that price, because he didn’t get further than the first. And, the other worry is the faster ground, because his flat win came on heavy! DAWN HOOFER was very useful on the flat, and she receives the seven pound sex allowance. Paul Nolan’s filly also ran well on her hurdling debut and she should improve for that effort.
The Wizards ended their 5 game slide on Sunday with a 108-95 win over the Knicks. At 2-7, they've struggled with team chemistry but it was noticeable the improved play on both ends of the floor and Dwight Howard's return has provided some much needed rebounding. Also sitting at 2-7, the Mavericks enter this game on a 6 game losing streak after losing to the same Knicks on Friday. Despite a positive start to the season, the Mavs have had issues with team chemistry as well as new arrival DeAndre Jordan hasn't been the defensive stalwart they expected and has clashed with rookie Luka Doncic. Doncic is dealing with an ankle injury and is questionable for tonight though he did practice yesterday. Otto Porter is probable for the visitors after missing last game. While both teams appear to be in disarray, the Wizards at least have shown to be able to put aside the differences on the court. The Mavs' poor interior defense and lack of size on the perimeter should be a liability against the Wizards' talented backcourt and we expect the visitors to pick up their 2nd win in a row!

We are celebrating our book balancing today - Fantastic profits from all PREMIUM BETS - Here is one for free email@example.com ——— The bad news for Huddersfield is they are bottom of the league, and they have yet to win during the current campaign. The not so bad news, just 5 points separate the Terriers from 14th placed Crystal Palace. Furthermore, a win tonight against Fulham would take them over that rival and into 18th spot. The good news for manager David Wagner is all of Terence Kongolo, Tommy Smith, Rajiv van La Parra and Abdelhamid Sabiri are all fit again for this massive match. Fulham are unbeaten in their last eleven fixtures against Huddersfield (7-4-0). However, the Cottagers lost their last 5 competitive matches (4 in the league), and one of them was a 4-2 defeat at fellow strugglers Cardiff. A 1-5 to Arsenal, 0-3 with Bournemouth and 3-0 in Everton are other depressing performances. To be fair the board of Fulham have been giving Slavisa Jakonovic a lot of support, and the manager does get back Kevin McDonald this evening! The Terriers have yet to score at home this season (0-7). With that said, they had a tough schedule, and they made both Liverpool and Tottenham fight hard for the points. A draw in Everton and Burnley would suggest Wagners men have something, and quality players returning should help. Last but by no means least, Huddersfield have one of the most vocal supporter bases in the Premier, and they can drive their team to a very important three points!
LOVE LANE needed all three re-appearances, and trainer form doesn’t suggest this will be any different. HOPE WISHES receives a lot of weight, but she’s out of form and would prefer easier ground than this. ADMIRAL SUNSET would win this easily if she could convert his flat form, but we prefer to stick with track winner STEPOVER. Alex Hales mare is prolific (5/26) if we compare her to the others, and she’s a track winner. The latter for us is important, because Hereford is a weird place!
After starting the season 1-5, the Rockets have maanged to win both their games to start their 5 game road trip albeit against poor opponents, the Nets and Bulls. Nevertheless, we're seeing improved defensive play and chemistry and with James Harden back, will be playing with their expected starting 5 for just the 3rd time all season. The Pacers sit at 7-3 on the year and recorded an impressive 102-101 win over the Celtics on Saturday night. The Rockets are a much different team from a season ago as they lack the 3 point shooting and depth that was lost with the departures of Ryan Anderson, Trevor Ariza and Luc Mbah a Moute. Carmelo Anthony has performed decently off the bench but his isolation heavy style of play tends to bog down the pace of play which is in the bottom 3rd of the league for the Rockets as a team. On that note, the Pacers are dead last in that regard and are a defensive minded team as well. This total looks a tick too high by our estimation!
The Magic enter this game at 3-6 but are coming off a 117-110 upset win over the Spurs last night as 8 point underdogs. Orlando put in a strong offensive performance matching their offensive rating of 99 points per 100 possessions early in the 4th quarter. While the good shooting night could be chalked up to an anomaly, they do face a Cavaliers team that's in shambles, has the worst defensive rating in the league by a fair margin, and is missing their best player Kevin Love. We expect the Magic to wreak havoc inside and playing on a back to back early in the season isn't too much of a detriment. Hosts to win rather comfortably!
The Cowboys are still in the hunt for a division title and a playoff spot despite an anemic offense to start the year and injuries to key positions on the offensive line. They signaled as much during their bye week as they sacrificed a first round draft pick to acquire Amari Cooper from the Raiders for some much needed help at the wide receiver position. Offensive line coach Paul Alexander was also fired and Marc Colombo was promoted in his place. The Titans enter this game with the same record as the Cowboys at 3-4 and have shown similar offensive issues, only eclipsing 20 points just once during the season. An early season elbow injury to Marcus Mariota appears to have hampered his abilities but Mariota indicated midweek that feeling has returned to his hand and he has been throwing without a glove on for the first time since Week 1. The Titans will still be without TE Delanie Walker who remains out for the season as well as linebacker Derrick Morgan. Will Compton is questionable. For the hosts, C Travis Frederick remains out with a medical condition and DE David Irving has been ruled out with an injury suffered in practice. WR Tavon Austin and LB Joe Thomas are also out and OL Zack Martin is questionable. Both sides have similar issues on the offensive side as neither has had a reliable pass catcher or someone to stretch the field. The Cowboys acquisition of Amari Cooper was a step in the right direction however and we believe their offensive line should improve as well with Alexander, who wasn't well liked, gone. Defensively, the Cowboys are still one of the best units in the league and their pass rush should pose an issue for the Titans who gave up 11 sacks not too long ago to the Ravens. We see a routine win for the hosts!
The Texans sit atop the NFC South at 5-3 and will be going for their 6th straight win today after starting the season 0-3. The Broncos have lost 5 of their last 6 and at 3-5, are slipping further out of the playoff picture. Despite the massive contract handed to him, QB Case Keenum hasn't delivered and has thrown as many interceptions (10) as touchdowns (10). Nevertheless, Keenum gets a favourable matchup against a Texans defense that's been poor against the pass and will be missing starting CB Aaron Colvin with another, Johnathan Joseph, questionable. DE Jadeveon Clowney is also questionable and LB Zach Cunningham is out for today's matchup. On the offensive side of the ball, the Texans took a huge blow when WR Will Fuller was ruled out for the season and slot receiver Key'vantanie Coutee is also out with a hamstring injury. The Texans recently acquired Demaryius Thomas at the trade deadline and he will actually be facing his former team today but Thomas hasn't been elite for quite some time now in our opinion and is a major downgrade from Fuller. #1 receiver DeAndre Hopkins poses a matchup nightmare but he was limited in practice as well and could be less than 100%. The Broncos will miss some defensive players as well with LB Brandon Marshall, CB Bradley Roby and FS Darian Stewart all sidelined tonight and RB Royce Freeman is doubtful on the offensive side of the ball. Nevertheless, we believe the injuries have hit the Texans the hardest and the Broncos fierce pass rush will be key against a still poor Texans offensive line that's had trouble keeping QB DeShaun Watson upright.
A rejuvenated Seattle enters this game at 4-3 and winners of 4 of their last 5 after a tumultuous offseason and beginning of the season that saw their once vaunted defense be hit with attrition and injuries galore. The Seahawks have done it with a solid ground game led by Chris Carson that's rushed for over 150 yards in each of their last 4 games and taken the pressure off of QB Russell Wilson who'd been one of the most pressured quarterbacks for a few seasons running now. On the other side, the Chargers have quietly risen through the ranks of the AFC despite the Chiefs getting most of the attention and LA enters this game at 5-2. DE Joey Bosa remains out for the visitors and RB Melvin Gordon is questionable but expected to play. For the Seahawks, LB Mychal Kendricks rmeains out with a suspension but LB KJ Wright safety Bradley McDougald are expected to play and RB Chris Carson is a game time decision. The Chargers are coming off their bye week and we expect them to start out a bit slow in a harsh environment against a revitalized defense. On the other side, the Seahawks should look to rely on their ground game regardless of Carson's status as the Chargers still have a stout defensive line without Bosa and should test the Seahawks poor offensive line. While the game may open up late, we see a slow start to keep this under the number!
