Straight Wins

The Premier League leaders make the short trip to Watford on Wednesday night looking to make up for what they feel was two points dropped at home to Manchester United at the weekend. The Hornets are looking to bounce back from their 4-2 defeat away at Leicester. Chelsea have won five of their last six encounters with Watford. The Hornets have not been in the best of form lately, losing four of their last six matches and failing to score in three of those defeats. Chelsea has won four of their last six outings. Bet9ja has 1.32 odds, Paripesa has 1.34 odds and 1xBet has 1.34 odds.

PSG came back from a goal down in an inspiring performance against St-Ettiene at the weekend. We are tipping the Parisians to win this game. They are 12 points clear and there is no doubt that head coach Pochettino is aiming to lift the trophy before May next year. PSG defeated Nice five times and bagged one draw against the visitors in the last six meetings. Nice have been inconsistent lately, failing to record back-to-back victories since the beginning of October. Nice clearly has no way of stopping the firepower of PSG which is why we have them selected for a win. Bet9ja has 1.44 odds, Paripesa has 1.46 odds and 1xBet has 1.46 odds.

Serie A champions Inter Milan sit 3rd in the table ahead of the midweek fixtures but could move ahead of their local rival’s AC and to within a point of Napoli if they win at home to Spezia and results elsewhere go in their favor. Inter Milan only took 4pts from their two games against Spezia last season, failing to keep a clean sheet in either encounter, but despite that, we’re backing Inter to win today. The hosts have won five of their last six matches in all competitions, Spezia has lost four of their last six league games and has failed to score in two of their last four outings. Bet9ja has 1.19 odds, Paripesa has 1.22 odds and 1xBet has 1.22 odds.

A win for AC Milan couple with a defeat for Napoli would see Ibrahimovic and co go level on points with the Serie A leaders this week. The hosts, Genoa, are having a tough season and look set for a battle against relegation as they have only managed to secure 10pts from their opening 14-matches. AC Milan have won four of their last six encounters with Genoa in Serie A and we’re backing the visitors to secure all 3pts on Wednesday night. Genoa is without a win in their last six matches and has failed to score in three of their last four fixtures. Bet9ja has 1.66 odds, Paripesa has 1.67 odds and 1xBet has 1.67 odds

Real Madrid have well and truly recovered after stumbling in late September-early October and has extended their lead at the top of La Liga to four points. They have now recorded their best 14-game start to a La Liga season. Athletic Bilbao have extended their winless La Liga run to five games (D4, L1). Their title charge is on and Bilbao are not opponents who can stop this Real Madrid side from scoring and taking home all three points. Bet9ja has 1.44 odds, Paripesa has 1.50 odds and 1xBet has 1.50 odds.

Over 2.5 Goals

Chelsea are back in the selection as to their impressive goal-scoring capabilities this season. The Blues are the second side with the most goals in the league this season, with Watford having one of the poorest defenses on display. At least three goals have been scored in each of the last eight league meetings between Watford and Chelsea, and we’re predicting more of the same on Wednesday night. Over 2.5 goals have also been scored in four of the host’s and three of the visitor’s last six outings in all competitions. Bet9ja has 1.67 odds, Paripesa has 1.73 odds and 1xBet has 1.73 odds.

Steven Gerrard has won his opening two games as Aston Villa manager but he faces his toughest challenge in management to date as his side goes up against the Premier League champions Man City. Guardiola could be without several key midfielders on Wednesday but that didn’t stop Man city from beating high-flying West Ham at the weekend. At least three goals have been scored in five of the last six meetings between Aston Villa and Man City, and we’re expecting more of the same at Villa Park on Wednesday night. Over 2.5 goals have been scored in four of Aston Villa’s last six outings, as well as in four of Man City’s last five fixtures. Bet9ja has 1.58 odds, Paripesa has 1.68 odds and 1xBet has 1.68 odds.

Two Merseyside rivals in very different veins of form renew hostilities for Wednesday’s Premier League derby, as Everton and Liverpool face-off at Goodison Park. The Toffees went down 1-0 to Brentford last time out, while Jurgen Klopp’s side eased to a 4-0 victory at home to Southampton. The Merseyside derby can often end up being a tight and tense affair but we’re expecting at least three goals to be scored, going either side. Two of the last four league meetings between the pair have produced over 2.5 goals, while three of Everton’s and four of Liverpool’s last six outings in all competitions have witnessed at least three goals scored. Bet9ja has 1.55 odds, Paripesa has 1.59 odds and 1xBet has 1.59 odds.

PSG’s much-vaunted attacking stars have excelled at home this term, where the team has a perfect league record (W7) thanks to scoring an average of 2.71 goals per game. However, after keeping just two home league clean sheets this season. PSG has the most goals in the league this term and no defense has been able to stop their attackers from scoring. We expect a repeat of such results with PSG ultimately coming out on top with over 2.5 goals. Bet9ja has 1.44 odds, Paripesa has 1.50 odds and 1xBet has 1.50 odds.

Scoring has been no issue for his players as their ten 2+ goal hauls this LL season was an equal-best after the previous round. Although only two of the last five head-to-head duels between Real Madrid and Athletico Bilbao have gone over 2.5 total goals, we expect this to happen in their next game. After all, Real Madrid averaged 3.50 goals per game this season in La Liga, which is the highest average in the league. Meanwhile, Athletic Bilbao averaged just 1.46 goals per game so far, which is the worst average in the league. Still, we expect Real Madrid to impose their style and rhythm and for us to see three or more goals. Bet9ja has 1.68 odds, Paripesa has 1.76 odds and 1xBet has 1.76 odds.

Anytime Goalscorers

Messi

Winning is 7th Ballon d’Or would be a really remarkable feat for the Argentine as he was gifted the trophy on Monday. He has shown to always put up a wonderful display each time after winning this and we are counting on that today. Messi’s hat-trick of assists last time out for PSG was the third time he’s achieved that feat in a league game and made it four direct goal contributions in two league fixtures (G1, A3). Bet9ja has 1.90 odds while Paripesa has 1.668 odds.

Salah

Salah has scored 11 league goals for Liverpool so far this season and we’re backing the Egyptian international to score against Everton as well. Salah has scored 7-goals in his last 10 matches for club and country and now he goes up against an Everton defense that has only kept one clean sheet in their last seven attempts. The Egyptian is sure to add to his tally here today as he likes scoring in the big games and important matches for Liverpool. Bet9ja has 1.80 odds while Paripesa has 1.72 odds.

Lukaku

The Belgian striker has returned to his squad after missing a chunk of games due to injury. He featured in his side draw against Manchester United as it was a very short stint. He returns to his side against opponents he would love to face as they have a very poor defense. With the changes being created by this Chelsea side in each game we are sure he would bury one of them here today. Bet9ja has 2.00 odds while Paripesa has 1.66 odds.

Benzema

Betting on Karim Benzema to score a goal in any game this season has been a pretty safe bet so far since the French striker has scored eleven goals in thirteen games in La Liga, adding seven assists in the process as well. Benzema also scored five goals in five Champions League games, so we can’t see why he can’t add to his overall tally with at least one goal against Athletic Bilbao. Real’s Karim Benzema has scored after half-time in three of his last four home meetings with Athletic in all competitions. Bet9ja has 1.88 odds while Paripesa has 1.91 odds.

Ibrahimovic

Ibrahimovic was injured at the start of the season but now the veteran Swedish forward is up and running for the season, we expect him to score against Genoa. Ibrahimovic has scored 5-goals in Serie A this season and top scores for AC Milan. Giroud is likely to miss this game through injury and Ibrahimovic will need to lead by example against Genoa in his absence. Bet9ja has 1.90 odds while Paripesa has 1.66.
