If you want todays other 8 football bets you can get them for €30 — email@example.com ———— Willem II won their last three away matches, and one of them was in Ajax (0-2). Another was at 2nd placed AZ Alkmaar (1-3), and both of those wins where fully deserved. Suffice to say, the Tricolores will hardly be overawed by a team that is failing to live upto it’s reputation. In fact, the visitors won the reverse match 2-1, and they have 4 more points on the table than the Eindhoven outfit! The Boeren haven’t won any of their 5 matches in 2020 (including 2 friendlies), and they where even knocked out of the cup by 2nd league team Breda. Last weeks 1-0 defeat in Ajax might not sound bad on paper, but that opponent wasted a load of chances! During the recent transfer window, PSV lost their best player to Tottenham. They currently have a caretaker manager, and all-in-all things are clearly going bad! Based on all the info we have at hand, great value bet on the visitors and we are simply taking them to get something!
PREMIUM BETTING PICK — This is one of our subscriber picks we are giving to FREE users —————Just three weeks ago the ten men of Fiorentina beat Atalanta in a cup game. The only excuse we can offer for La Dea is they made 5 changes for that match, albeit Gasperina still sent out a strong team. Maybe that’s the first point about the visitors we should mention, they are hardly bombproof. In fact, their is an argument to suggest Atalanta lack consistency, but then comes the flip side! When Atalanta are on, they can beat any team in this division. Talk about rampant if you like, i.e. 0-7 win in Torino, 5-0 trashing of AC Milan, and 5-0 Parma. The visitors even won a Champions league game 0-3 in Shakhtar, and they stuffed AS Roma (0-2) on the road. Atalanta are down to play Valencia in Champions league knockout, and they are the type of team who we would trust to give anyone a game! Fiorentina lost last weeks match (3-0) in Juventus, and prior to that Inter sent them out of the cup. In our opinion this seasons La Viola are simply average, and if the visitors are wanting it this can only end one way!
FREE FOOTBALL TIP - Freiburg won their first match in 2020 against Mainz, but we have to say they had the rub of the green. Since then the hosts where defeated by Paderborn (0-2) and Koln (4-0), thus suggesting they are off the pace. In fact, for that match against Paderborn they where odds of just 1.65, and that opponent played over 30 minutes with ten men! The 4-0 defeat in Koeln was simply embarrassing for boss Christian Streich, and considering he had a near to full team available means no excuse! This is just a 2 hour journey for ‘’in-form’’ Hoffenheim. The visitors are one of the best travellers in the league (5-2-2), and they won back to back away games in Union Berlin (0-2) and Werder Bremen (0-3). During the week the visitors made Bayern (4-3) fight to land odds of 1.11 in the German cup, and last week they come from a goal behind to beat Leverkuesen. The visitors won 4 from their last five league matches with Dortmund being one of the victims. While first choice GK Baumann is expected to be out, Phillipp Pentke stood in for those last two league wins. Suffice to say, in present form we can only recommend an away win with the draw no bet option best!
George Hill remains out for the Bucks. DJ Augustin, Jonathan Isaac and Al-Farouq Aminu all remain out for the Magic. The Bucks enter this matchup with a league best 44-7 record and have won 12 of their last 13 games. On the other side, the Magic are clearly struggling with just 2 wins in their last 11 games. Nevertheless, Orlando's offense has shown signs of life as their shooting has improved and an under the radar trade for James Ennis provides them with much needed wing depth which can correct some lineup and rotation issues with players out of position. The Magic are a strong defensive team that can usually keep players out of the paint which is key against the Bucks and to Orlando's credit they've somewhat succeeded in this regard in past games. But with Isaac still sidelined, we believe they'll sacrifice defense for offense and as long as they shoot moderately well, the pace should be fast enough for this game to be played in the 220's.
FREE PICK - Their was a time when Eintracht where very difficult to beat at the Commerzbank arena, but that hasn’t been the case for a while now. However, the hosts have done much better in recent matches, and if they can beat RB Leipzig at home, they can surely get some revenge on Augsburg. The visitors won their last two meetings, and they are also a place above todays opponent in the league. With that said, Martin Schmidt’s team take near to double the amount of points at home compared to away. And, while team news is improving for the team from Bayern, it’s has though they where doing better without some of their big names! —— take the hosts, decent odds here!
FREE PICK - Bayern appear to find this level a bit beyond them. With all due respect, leading the BBL doesn’t amount to a great deal. Afterall, Spain, Turkey, Russia, Israel, and Greece are a long way ahead, and teams such has Valencia are comfortable at this level. While Bayern do at least have a decent record on home court, they are way too reliable on Djedovic and Zipser. When these teams met in november Valencia didn’t just win, they trashed the German team 82:56. The last time the visitors came to Bayern was 2015, the scoreline ended 60-94. In 6 attempts Bayern have never beaten Valencia, and the closest they got was 22 points - Betting is about odds, lets not worry about location or Lloyd missing out again for the visiting team!
FREE PICK - Rare ATP pick for free users. Diego Schwartzman leads head to heads 4-0, all those wins came in straight sets. The Argentinian is the top seed at this tournament, and that means he received a bye in the first round. While Ramos-Vinolas won both matches to date, he needed three sets to get past error prone (8 double faults) Andujar. The only players to stop the Argentinian are usually the big names, and his 66% win record on clay suggests he’s unlikely to be stopped here by a player he knows he can beat - Straight sets!
Rodney Hood, Skal Labissiere, Zach Collins and Jusuf Nurkic all remain out for the Blazers. Nassir Little is also out. The Spurs have a clean injury report. The Blazers' lack of depth at forward has put even more of a burden on Damian Lillard to carry the team. The Spurs have excellent perimeter defenders to throw Lillard's way and the Spurs have a very deep bench they can go to as well while the Blazers lack any kind of depth behind their starting backcourt duo. Barring a 50+ point performance from Lillard and/or McCollum, this should be relatively easy for the Spurs to stay within a possession if not win outright. Too much depth and balance from the visitors!
Josh Richardson remains out for the Sixers. Alec Burks and Glenn Robinson III were recently traded to Philadelphia but aren't likely to be active for this game. George Hill is expected back for the Bucks after missing 3 games. The Sixers have struggled lately with 3 consecutive losses including a horrific 127-117 defeat to woeful Atlanta last week. There are clearly team chemistry issues at the moment and coach Brett Brown appears to have lost the locker room as well. Nevertheless, the Sixers scored one of the biggest wins of the season over the Bucks on Christmas Day and this is typically a matchup the players go all out for and we expect them to put aside their differences against the #1 team in the East. The Bucks should be out for revenge and we expect them to make adjustments from the first matchup and look to speed the game up. There shouldn't be as much hesitation from Giannis Antetokounmpo and we expect a much better shooting performance from him this time around. Both sides should have their chances here!
FREE PREMIUM PICK - 2/2 last night, so we thought we would give our lower odds one away to FREE USERS today ———Metz won their last three league matches against St Etienne (3-1), Reims (0-1) and Strasbourg (1-0). Those 9 points have taken Les Grenats into 16th, seven points above the relegation zone. However, that doesn’t mean they are not one of the candidates for the drop, and we are expecting Montpellier to dish out a reality check this evening! According to the away chart Metz are mid table 11th. With that said, Vincent Hognon’s side won just two on the road (2-4-5), and they are the second lowest scorers when playing away. While the visitors don’t have any real player worries, it’s worth noting Sunzu left the club and Traore is injured. Montpellier drew the reverse match 2-2, and now comes the punchline. La Paillade have take 25 points at home, compared to just 8 away. They are the third best host (8-1-2) in the league, and only PSG (1-3) and Rennes (0-1) won in this stadium. That latter match was the first game of the season, and at the Stade De La Mosson the hosts won 6 from their last 7 competitive matches. While it’s true to say Montpellier got stuffed by PSG (5-0) in the last round, having the goalkeeper sent off after just 17 minutes made the scoreline just a number. In fact, to tell it like it is, for that game first choice GK Rulli was suspended, that meant they played 73 mins with rookie Mathis Carvalho wearing the gloves. More important to know, Rulli is back today! While Chotard is another suspended for tonight, he’s hardly a game changer! Go with the hosts!
Marc Gasol and Norman Powell remain out for the Raptors. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson is listed as questionable. TJ Warren is out for the Pacers. The Pacers have struggled of late, dropping consecutive games to the Knicks and Mavericks and have lost 3 of their last 4. It's evident that Victor Oladipo is still getting his legs under him and has disrupted the flow of the Pacers on both ends of the court. In addition to Warren sidelined with a concussion, Malcolm Brogdon hasn't quite looked right either coming back from his own concussion. The Pacers just aren't a team we trust at the moment! On the other side, the Raptors have won 11 in a row and their deep bench has stepped up in place of missing starters. This team is on top of their game right now and this is rather generous giving up just 6 here!
Relegation threatened Dusseldorf must feel like the world is against them. At the weekend, Uwe Rosler’s team succumbed to a 93rd minute equaliser against Frankfurt. That leaves the Fortunen 2nd bottom of the table, and 2 points away from safety. With a big game coming up against Wolfsburg, you can be certain the visitors will be prioritising that match. The Dusseldorf coach made five changes for the last cup game, albeit on this occasion the GK choice is going to be a little different. Afterall, first choice GK Steffen was recently injured, and that means Florian Kastenmaier played at the weekend. Rosler confirmed the 22 year old would play this evening, albeit Steffen returned to training and could be ready for the next match. With regards to other team news, Valon Berisha will stay at home, Kevin Stöger is doubtful. One player who will be given the green light for today is Zanka, and Jean Zimmer is another option! The once mighty Kaiserslautern are now mid table in the third division. Die Rote Teufel are just 3-5-2 at home in the league, albeit they did at least take 7 points from their last three games here. Furthermore, in the cup they have already knocked out Bundesliga team Mainz, and 2nd division Nurnberg. We are tempted to take the hosts with a start!
