For some reason, most of the big guns this weekend play on Sunday but we still have more than enough games to make some good picks today.
This week has seen some special results as well. In fact, it’s been the theme all season and that’s why there’s a need to take extra care when making picks.
There was good value from the bookies if you backed Arsenal to qualify over Liverpool in the Carabao Cup. Just yesterday, PSG capped off a remarkable 6-1 win over Angers to go second in the Ligue 1. Neymar was back in the goals once again as well.
Lots of good games to select from once again today and we will carefully provide some of the best tips on ground from all the incoming action.
High-flying Everton are among three of the only sides that have a 100% record in the Premier League so far. Their new signings have gelled almost immediately with James Rodriguez in particular looking to be a shrewd buy. We’re tipping the Toffees to claim a home win and Bet9ja has good odds of 1.86 for this to come through. Betway also have odds of 1.86 while Bet365 have odds of 1.80 for the same outcome.
Over to the Bundesliga, wounded lions Borussia Dortmund take on Freiburg at home. Lucien Favre’s side have lost their last two games in succession including a German Super cup loss to Bayern Munich. No doubt, Dortmund will be geared up to get back to winning ways and we expect them to do so. Bet9ja has odds of 1.34, Bet65 has odds of 1.33 and Betway has odds of 1.38 for the same outcome.
Moving to the La Liga, Atletico Madrid take on Villareal at home and we are backing Diego Simeone’s men to claim the win here. Villareal have blown hot and cold in their four games so far this season but we’re tipping Atletico to be too much for them to handle. Bet365 has odds of 1.57 for this event while Bet9ja offers 1.64 for the same event and Betway offers 1.63.
Goals (Over 2.5)
Chelsea take on Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge and normally this should be win for the Blues but for the unpredictable nature of the league so far. Crystal Palace have only lost one game as well and already beat Manchester United. We can’t say who would exactly win but we expect goals to come through in the game.
The same goes for Manchester City as they take on high-flying Leeds at home. Under the guidance of Marcelo Bielsa, the Whites have been the most promising of any newly promoted side so far. The result could go either way but we expect a good amount of goals on show once again.
The Everton forward is already up to five goals for the Premier League season and has bagged two hatricks in all competitions already. Not a surprise he got an England call-up and he’s pretty much high on confidence right now. Betway has odds of 2.26 for the Calvert-Lewin to grab a goal while Bet9ja offers 2.35 for the same event.
The Uruguayan forward made a brilliant debut for Atletico last weekend after scoring twice and creating an assist in only 20 minutes on the pitch. Suarez looks to be a good fit for Atletico’s style of play and we expect him to be prolific in front of goal as in his Barca days. We’re tipping him to find the back of the net once again. Bet9ja offers a good value odd of 2.10 for him to grab a goal while Betway offers odds of 2.14 for the same event.
Football Lover. All-round junkie of the beautiful game. Could be found watching football most of the time. If not he’s writing about them or making some punditry you don’t agree with. A certain bias for Arsenal and Santos FC.
