George Hill is out for the Bucks. Pat Connaughton is probable. For the Pelicans, Kenrich Williams remains out. The Pelicans have become a legitimate threat in the Western Conference with the long awaited debut of rookie sensation Zion Williamson. Williamson has been unstoppable in the paint and created more opportunities for outside shooters. The Bucks are the class of the East but the Pelicans have good length to create issues for the Bucks' own shooters and at any rate, the hosts have scorers at ever position and should be able to keep up with the scoring barrage on their home court.

Josh Richardson is out for the Sixers. Justise Winslow is out for the Heat. This line is a bit inflated due to the Heat's abnormally good home record this year (21-3). The Heat's home court isn't anything special in our opinion and it's worth mentioning they've benefited from winning all 5 games that's gone into overtime. Sixers C Joel Embiid hasn't quite looked himself since his return but he still provides a much needed defensive presence and he should create matchup issues inside against a heat team that lacks a strong interior presence. We see a close game all the way!
FOOTBALL BETTING TIP — It seems Osasuna have just one ambition, stop the opponent at every cost. The Rojillos have drawn 10 from 21 games to date, and on the road it’s 5 from 10. Whichever way you look at it the visitors are 10th in the table, 8 points outside the Europa league spot and 11 in front of the relegation zone. It’s somewhat ironic that the club from Pamplona are led by former striker Jagoba Arrasate, because the 41 year old is all about defence first! Expect the visitors to go 4-5-1 here against Villarreal, although it will be a challenge without a handful of injured players including Ruben, Oier, Villar, Avila (top scorer) and of course suspended Brasanac! The Yellow Submarines are working their way back up the table. In fact, Calleja has seen his players lose just one of their last 10 competitive games, and seven of those ended in wins! Yes the hosts are going to be without Pau Torres, Moreno, Morlanes and suspended Quintilla. The hosts won their last three games on the road, that’s something new for a club who rely very much on home strength. Getting back to a packed Ceramica should give Villarreal extra impetus, and with the big players coming through it’s exciting times for a team who are just 7 points behind 3rd placed Sevilla! Osasuna won’t be sinking this Submarine, and with no european football getting in the way it’s all out for the league from now on!
PREMIUM FOOTBALL - Arsenal fought back with ten men to force an unlikely draw in Chelsea. It was a really courageous effort from the Gunners, and they followed up in last weeks cup by winning in Bournemouth. Coach Mikael Arteta made four changes for that game, and he must have been happy to see two of them (Nkektia and Saka) get the goals. Hopefully that gives the coach extra options, and so does new signing Pablo Mari being available. The big news is Aubameyang is back from suspension, and with David Luiz also back from his one match ban the North Londoners must be in top shape. With regards to the rest of the visitors team news, Sead Kolasinac (thigh) and Shkodran Mustafi (ankle) will also be assessed, but Reiss Nelson (hamstring), Kieran Tierney (shoulder) and Calum Chambers (knee) will remain sidelined. Despite being included in their squad, Burnley midfielder Josh Brownhill may have to wait to make his debut. Both Ashley Barnes and Johann Berg Gudmundsson are still sidelined with injury, but Phil Bardsley has recovered from a back injury and he’s available for selection! While it won’t be easy playing in a stadium like this, Arsenal look in better condition than for a very long time!
Another NFL season concludes as the AFC Champion Chiefs take on the NFC Champion 49ers at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, FL. Injury reports are clean for both sides. Niners RB Tevin Coleman is expected to be active after leaving the NFC Championship Game with a shoulder injury. Chiefs RB LeSean McCoy is likely to be inactive though he's not much of a factor anyway. DT Chris Jones is expected to play and should be much healthier given two weeks off Both teams excelled putting points on the scoreboard as the Niners and Chiefs were 2nd and 3rd respectively in points per game. It's never simple as that in determining our bet but the matchups are quite favourable for the offenses. The Chiefs are loaded with speed in their receiving corps and the Niners' pass defense while putting up excellent stats and numbers were a bit overrated in our opinion as they benefited from a pass rush that frequently got home without needing extra men on a blitz. We should point out the Chiefs' offensive line were one of the best in adjusted sack rate allowed, especially on 3rd downs where the Niners were most successful. At any rate, the Niners will have their hands full covering the likes of speed demons WR Tyreek Hill and WR Mecole Hardman. QB Patrick Mahomes' mobility also presents a challenge against a defense that showed some weaknesses at the edge. On the other side, the Chiefs' main flaw on defense was against the run. The Niners ran one of the most efficient ground attacks with head coach Kyle Shanahan's brilliant schemes utilizing pre-snap motion. The Niners also are loaded with speed in the backfield and the Chiefs simply don't have the linebacking personnel that can match up and contain the Niners' ground game. We should also point out that neither side were particularly good in the red zone! We expect both sides to play to their strengths and play attacking football. With extra time to prepare, we expect extensive offensive game plans from two of the best coaches at designing them. We see only one way to bet this game!
Gerald Green and Clint Capela are out for the Rockets. Kenrich Williams is out for the Pelicans. The Rockets will be at a size disadvantage with Capela out but head coach Mike Dantoni seems content with playing a small lineup and running their opponent off the floor. The Pelicans don't have any issues playing with pace but the Rockets should avoid traps and double teams on James Harden by continually forcing the issue and running out in transition at every opportunity. The Rockets are the better shooting team and their lineup will have all positions capable of launching it from deep. With an astronomical amount of possessions expected, this advantage should bear out and the hosts should be able to cover this small number!
Syndicate pick - We got a push with the first, so we give a 2nd for FREE - Join Football syndicate if you want in — firstname.lastname@example.org ———We often suggest Sassuolo are better than their league position, and to be frank we don’t see any reason for the Neroverdi to worry about relegation. Respect for the hosts getting a point in last weeks match in Sampdoria, because they played with a man less from 25 minutes onwards. Much credit for that result should go to coach De Zerbi, because after centre-back Peluso was been sent off, he quickly sacrificed attacking midfielder Hamed Traoure with defender Rogerio. Prior to that match Sassuolo had won at home against Torino (3-1), and they even toughed it out for a draw in Juventus. with that in mind, It will be interesting to see if the hosts line-up to take on AS Roma, or will they sit deep and defend? In the reverse fixture Roma bagged a 4-2 win. The visitors have lost just one fixture (7-3-1) on the road this season. Last weekend I Giallorossi where much better than local rival Lazio it was somehow disappointing they could only draw (1-1) a match they had dominated. Nevertheless, while Paulo Fonseca’s side couldn’t close the gap on third place, at least they remain in a strong fourth. With Inter starting to wobble, who knows what could happen! Nothing to worry about with team news! In 13 league meetings Sassuolo have never beaten Roma, and the visitors won 5 of those 6 games in this stadium! Go with proven quality!
PREMIUM FOOTBALL PICK - We have 10 pre game syndicate bets lined-up for today, this is one of them. PS, the odds might drift of Chelsea if Abraham doesn’t play, but we still don’t see that has an issue. The best thing is always tracking the betting market for optimum odd, but that part is down to yourself. If you want all our weekend picks, you can get all for just €50 ———— email@example.com Jamie Vardy is ready to face Chelsea, a massive relief for Brendan Rodgers. Third place Foxes have an 8 point cushion over the Blues, and in the last round they bounced back from a few negative results to beat West Ham (4-1). While the hosts are a solid 8-2-2 at home, they did lose recent home matches to Southampton (1-2) and Liverpool (0-4). Furthermore, during the week Leicester missed out on making the EFL cup final by losing the reverse game in Aston Villa (2-1). If we take into consideration Rodgers played his first XI that day and Villa didn’t, the result was extremely disappointing. In fact, the then visitors where odds of 1.60 to win that match! With a trip to Wembley scuppered a reality check was handed out! The hosts won’t have Wes Morgan (ill) or Nampalys Mendy available. Frank Lampard was looking to acquire a new striker during the transfer window, but the club couldn’t find the right quality of player. That means Chelsea will continue relying on Tammy Abraham, Michy Batshuayi and maybe Oliver Giroud who they kept at the club. With regards to the Blues team news, Abraham trained yesterday and will face a late fitness check. The coach was saying he’s got a bit of pain, so it’s a question of risk. Reece James also trained, he’s available for selection. Pulisic and Ruben Loftus-Cheek are still injured. Chelsea have been more efficient on the road and against bigger teams. Plenty of quality remains in the squad, and Lampard won’t need to get rattle the cage for this one!
DJ Augustin, Al-Farouq Aminu and Jonathan Isaac all remain out for the Magic. Evan Fournier is questionable. For the Heat, Justise Winslow remains out and Kendrick Nunn is probable. These teams played against each other just 5 days ago at Miami where the Heat dominated en route to a 113-92 win. Nevertheless, the circumstances were unfavourable for the Magic who were likely fatigued at the end of a grueling stretch of opponents in the wake of Kobe Bryant's death and playing at a venue where the hosts have lost just twice all season. Going back to early January, it was the Magic that dominated the Heat 105-85 and we expect a similar result in a series where the home court seems to matter immensely. The Magic's length and sound defense should create the same issues for a Heat team that's reliant on the outside shot and the extra time off for the hosts should prove to be critical. Hosts shouldn't be outsiders here!
WTA PREMIUM - Last chance to get the rest of the season (9.5 months) for just €600. About a 1000 tips means just 60 cents each, so based on last years plenty of profit left for subscribers - firstname.lastname@example.org ———Prior to the semi final starting, Ash Barty was backed (1.44 to 1.28) off the boards to beat Sofia Kenin. What did all that mean, nothing is the answer has the 21 year old won in straight sets. If we are being analytical about that match against, her opponent was coming up short on her forehand and that made it a bit easier for Kenin. Nevertheless, she needed to execute those chances, and that’s what she did! In our opinion, Kenin is proving to be the most efficient server in the tournament. While she’s not belting the first serve, it’s well placed and keeps her opponent guessing. In fact, she’s playing tennis like it’s a game of chess, in that she’s using her brain to shot build! Garbine Muguruza was mentally very strong in her semi final against Simona Halep, it was that which won her the day! Like we mentioned prior to that match, we also believed Muguruza was better equipped to deal with the extreme temperature. Other aspects leading to that win include finding plenty of depth, which was backed up with 10 aces. Simona also digged for her own grave by making line (call) challenges and winding herself up! Garbine has been in the situation before, and she knows how to claim the big wins. She’s also in better shape than when she lost to Kenin at last years Beijing. However, the same is true of the 21 year old, and this rising star was focused enough to beat the world number one in the semi final. Considering the crowd was against her that day, it’s hard to believe she won’t be fully focused for the big day. Kenin has a very big opportunity to claim her first slam, plenty of juice in these odds!
PREMIUM FOOTBALL PICK - Want the whole weekend of football (friday to sunday - circa 20 tips) for just €50 email@example.com ———— Nantes won the reverse match, but it was the only win against Rennes in the last ten (5-4-1) league meetings. Last weekend Rennes went to Nice and forced a 1-1 draw, a fair result based on what we had been watching. What was not efficient from both teams was finishing goal scoring opportunities, because from a total of 46 goal attempts only two found the back of the net! Since then have progressed further in the cup match against Angers (4-5). Furthermore, Bourigeaud returned from injury that day, and like usual he was a big influence from midfield (Played 73 minutes). Right sided defenders Traore and Da Silva (centre back) returned from suspensions, whereas Clement Grenier came on has substitute after missing nine games. Rennes are still without Morel, Martin and Nyamsi, and Grenier might need to miss a few more matches! Nantes might have won back to back away games, but last weekend they where beaten at home by Bordeaux. We where extremely disappointed with the Canaries effort, and centre back Girotto was silly to get himself sent off. Suffice to say, he’s suspended now and the injury list of Nantes includes Coulibaly, Pallois, Pereira, Fabio, Coco and Limbombe. The Rouge et Noire are third in the league table, and with home advantage and players returning thy can only get better!
