Spurs look to bounce back, lump on Ronaldo and Lewandowski double
Tottenham's failure to find the net against Arsenal cost the column dearly at the weekend but we are hoping Spurs can redeem themselves by claiming a draw against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League this week.
Running total: -£84.13
The Home Banker
Napoli are two points clear at the top of Serie A but have endured a fairly torrid Champions League campaign and know anything less than victory at home to Shakhtar Donetsk will see them eliminated from this season's competition. Shakhtar turned over an uncharacteristically cautious Napoli side at home on match day one to blow Group F wide open. However we do not see lightning striking twice and fancy Napoli to cover a one goal handicap against the champions of Ukraine on Tuesday.
Selection: £5 on Napoli (-1) to win at 21/20 with Bet365
The Tasty Treble
Bayern Munich (3/10) look bankers to beat an Anderlecht side that have shipped 15 goals in just four Champions League games so far, while Sporting Lisbon (8/15) can be trusted to see off poor travellers Olympiakos at home. Elsewhere, the draw looks a tempting price at 13/5 when Liverpool travel to Sevilla. The Reds are unbeaten in Group E and have played themselves into a bit of form ahead of this crunch trip to Spain. The treble is paying better than 6/1 and definitely worth a play.
Selection: £2 on treble at 6.17/1 with Bet365
The Euro Wager
Spurs suffered a demoralising 2-0 defeat in the north London derby at the weekend but will fancy their chances of claiming a positive result against a woefully out of form Borussia Dortmund. The German giants have not won a game since Sept. 30 and are on the brink of elimination in Group H. The draw in Germany is a 13/5 shout and looks the way to bet as Mauricio Pochettino's men look to nail down top spot in the group.
Selection: £2 on draw at 13/5 with Bet365
The Wildcard Tip
Pep Guardiola has promised to make sweeping changes to his Manchester City side as they host Feyenoord on Tuesday. Speaking after Saturday's 2-0 win at Leicester he said: "Against Feyenoord I will change the team completely," and with City having already qualified from Group F it might be worth laying down some money on the draw here at 11/1. The Dutch side, who admittedly have struggled domestically this season, travel more in hope than expectation but could prove stubborn opponents at the Etihad.
Selection: £1 on the draw at 11/1 with Bet365
The Bookie Basher
Cristiano Ronaldo's La Liga form may be a worry but he's already bagged six goals in just four Champions League games this season and he looks the sensible play to score first against APOEL Nicosia. So too Robert Lewandowski. The Polish goal machine has already scored 22 in all competitions this season and the Ronaldo/Lewandowski first goal-scorer double is an 8/1 chance with Bet365 this week.
Selection: £2 on Ronaldo - Lewandowski first goal-scorer double at 8/1 with Bet365
Sevilla V Liverpool Odds A Draw Looks The Bet Between Two In Form Teams
Tuesday 21st November 2017, 7.45pm - Sevilla v Liverpool (Champions League)
The Champions League group stages reach a crucial phase this midweek with the 5th round of matches, and there is a big night for Liverpool in Spain as they travel to face Sevilla. The Reds know that a win will see them through to the last 16 of the tournament, almost certainly as group winners, but it won't be easy against a Sevilla side who are tough to beat on their own patch.

|Tips||A draw Best Bet||@ 13 / 5||Bet365"> Bet365|

- Sevilla have won six of their last eight home matches in European competition
Tight Betting For Crucial Champions League Clash
When the balls came out of the hat for the Champions League group stage, the clash between Sevilla and Liverpool looked like it would decide the winner of Pool E and that could well be the case, with these two the top two in the section.
Liverpool were the far superior team in the first game at Anfield but two defensive mistakes allowed the Spaniards to grab a 2-2 draw, and we can expect this one to be equally hotly contested.
Liverpool have won their last four matches in all competitions and as such are 8/5 with Bet365 to win this game, whilst Sevilla are excellent at home and are 7/4 with the same firm to nab the crucial three points.

Both Teams In Good Form At The Moment
It is very difficult for punters in this match with both teams in strong form heading into this big clash, and the betting reflects that.
Since losing to Spurs, Liverpool have won their last four matches on the spin, scoring 13 goals in the process and conceding just one, and they looked sensational on Saturday as they brushed aside Southampton 3-0 at Anfield.
Mo Salah continued his remarkable start to the season with another two goals at the weekend and the Egyptian is clearly the danger man for the Spanish team to watch on Tuesday. Salah has scored 13 goals in all competitions for Liverpool, and he is 5/1 with Paddy Power to score first at the Ramon Sanchez.
Sevilla aren't likely to roll over and have their tummies tickled though with the Spanish team very tough to beat at home. Los Rojiblancos are unbeaten on their own patch in La Liga with five wins and a draw at home in La Liga, whilst they have won six of their last eight home European games.
A frighteningly tough match for punters to pick over with both teams in good form and both teams knowing that a win will be enough to send them through to the knock-out stages. With that in mind, it could be that we see a slightly cagier match than you would normally expect and on balance a draw, like we saw at Anfield, is the smart play at 13/5 with Bet365.

NFL – Falcons can fly highest on Monday night in Seattle
NFL expert Tom Selwyn (@Tom_Selwyn) shares his expert opinion on the best bet available from Monday Night Football.
Atlanta Falcons @ Seattle Seahawks | Tuesday 21st November 2017, 01:30 | Sky Sports
Despite the injuries that both teams have suffered recently – CB Richard Sherman and SS Kam Chancellor for Seattle, RB Devonta Freeman for Atlanta – I’m looking forward to this matchup between two NFC powers.
Neither team has been totally convincing this season, but with Falcons putting together a very nice game against Dallas last week I think there’s value to be had in backing them for this Monday night game – Atlanta it is.
Without two members of the famed “Legion of Boom” in Seattle’s secondary (and the third, Earl Thomas, will be in first game back from injury) I think the Falcons have a big advantage over the Seahawks, especially with WR Julio Jones.
Jones has form against Seattle’s backup CBs in their most recent matchup too; when lined up on anyone other than Sherman, Jones was responsible for QB Matt Ryan having a perfect passer rating when throwing to him – it could be a similar story for one of the league’s best WRs this time as well.
Of course, it would be remiss of me not to talk about the star of Atlanta’s win last week – DE Adrian Clayborn. Clayborn destroyed the various backup LTs of the Cowboys to the tune of six sacks and it looks like he’ll be going against another backup LT this week as Duane Brown looks set to miss out for Seattle.
With Seahawks QB Russell Wilson responsible for pretty much all of his team’s offense (over 80% of Seattle’s yards from scrimmage), if Clayborn and the rest of Atlanta’s defensive front can summon up something close to last week’s dominant performance and put Wilson under pressure then they’ll be in good shape (although you can never truly contain him due to his incredible ability to escape and make plays).
It would be foolish to dismiss the Seahawks, who have consistently found ways to win even when they’re the not at their best, but the Falcons are coming into this game fresh off their best performance of the season and look to have advantages in crucial areas. I think it will be close, but I can’t ignore the Falcons here.

Flames vs. Capitals NHL Pick – November 20th
The Calgary Flames stay on the road to start the week, as the Washington Capitals play host on Monday night at Verizon Center. The Flames made stops in Detroit and Philadelphia, where they took a loss against the Red Wings, and rebounded for a 5-4 overtime win in Philadelphia. The Flames haven’t been here nor there. There are some teams you can look at their record and think, okay, they’re off to a slow start, they’ll come back.
With the Flames, I don’t know if you can exactly call it a slow start. Calgary are 11-8-0, which is just about where anyone would have them at this point in the season. They reached the playoffs with a record of 45-33-4 in the 2016-17 season and lost to the Ducks in the first-round of the postseason. Naturally they lost to the Ducks, a team who has been a major thorn in their side over the years. The year prior in 2015-16, they were a huge letdown and missed the playoffs completely.
The Capitals are coming off a 3-1 win over the Minnesota Wild. The win snapped a nice four-game winning streak for the Wild. Alex Stalock got the nod in net, as Devan Dubnyk was given the night off. Braden Holtby wasn’t looking too elite, but against the Wild, Holtby came up big several times to assist the Capitals pick up the win. They were previously on a two-game slide on the road, but they came home to break out of the mini-funk.
Alex Ovechkin took a puck to the face, which left a good amount of blood to clean up. He ultimately came back in the game, so it isn’t anything that will hinder him moving forward. Mike Smith returned in net for the Flames on Saturday. After watching the performance from Eddie Lack against the Wings, it’s a good thing Smith is back. Lack was torched for 8 goals against a Wings’ offence who aren’t known for their sharpshooting. If Smith goes down for an extended period of time, the Flames are going to get roasted. His GAA has ballooned to 5.29. We’re on a five-game winning streak in the NHL. Hopefully we can add to it tonight with another win. Head below for our free Flames vs. Capitals pick.
Calgary Flames vs. Washington Capitals Pick
Sean Monahan registered the first-career hat trick of career against the Flyers on Saturday night. The 23-year-old looks like he should be a fixture on the Flames for a long time to come. He’s already potted 11 goals and 9 assists on the year. Michael Furland has also been a major contributor for the Flames. He’s only 25 years old, so they have a ton of young talent up front on the first-line.
Johnny Gaudreau has been on fire, too. He’s on a nine-game point streak, with 9 goals and 20 assists in total. And then you look at 45-year-old Jaromir Jagr and you can’t help but laugh. Jagr was looking for a team this offseason, and he found a landing spot with the Flames. He’s nothing more than a locker room piece and leader for the youngsters, and the Flames are fine with that.
Mike Smith enters tonight with a 2.70 GAA and 0.919 save percentage. While their offence has plenty of promise, the defence must get better. On the year, the Flames are allowing 3.26 goals per game, 25th in the NHL. Smith went from an awful defensive unit in Arizona, right to the Flames who are struggling in their own defensive zone as well.
Smith has had a heck of a time against the Caps in his career, getting throttled for a 3.42 GAA and 0.889 save percentage. Surprisingly, Holtby has struggled against the Flames. He was sharp in a 2-1 loss in October, but overall, Holtby has a 2.88 GAA and 0.887 save percentage against the Flames in seven starts. The Flames have averaged 4.6 goals per game in their last six outings.
The offence is certainly starting to gel together, especially that first-line. While they’ve scored 4.6 goals during that stretch, they allowed the same right back to the other team, 4.6 goals allowed. The Capitals are allowing 3.14 goals per game, 21st in the NHL. I expect that number to go up as the season progresses, but right now, they’re still trying to work things out the blue line. It appears that there should be more than 5 goals in store for us tonight.
PICK: OVER 5.5 (-110)
Falcons vs. Seahawks MNF Pick – NFL Week 11
Following yet another unbeaten (3-0-1) Sunday of NFL action here at The Sports Geek, we will try and close things out on Monday evening with another big winner.
After a few consecutive weeks of some mediocre match-ups in big prime-time spots, the NFL has treated us here in Week 11. For MNF, two of the NFC’s top teams will be squaring off as Matt Ryan brings his Falcons to the Pacific Northwest to do battle with the Seattle Seahawks. Seattle possesses one of the most dominating homefield advantages – especially in prime-time situations, so it will be interesting to see how the crowd plays a role in this crucial Monday night contest.
Both squads have been plagued by injuries and inconsistency. The Seahawks have lost both Kam Chancellor and Richard Sherman for the year, and their defense certainly is not what it used to be. At 6-3, they have a shot at catching the Rams in the NFC West, but you can bet the 5-4 Falcons are still holding out hope they can track down the Saints in the NFC South. This should be an unbelievable match and read on below for all of your betting needs and desires.
Falcons vs. Seahawks Betting Odds:
Atlanta Falcons +1 (-115)
@ Seattle Seahawks -1 (-105)
Over 46 (-110)
Under 46 (-110)

Falcons vs. Seahawks Pick:
Something still seems off with the usually high-octane Atlanta Falcons. Even last week – their offense only really took off against the Cowboys once Sean Lee was forced off of the field. And even though Seattle isn’t what they used to be on defense, they still can and will create issues. Earl Thomas still lives in that secondary, and he’ll be making things very difficult on Matt Ryan come Monday evening. A lot of this stems from poor offensive line play. Matt Ryan isn’t getting enough time to connect with Julio Jones downfield, and that will continue against the Seahawks’ defensive front. Expect Michael Bennett and Jarran Reed to easily win their matchups along the line of scrimmage and take full advantage. Things won’t be easy again for Matt Ryan.
Seattle’s offensive line issues meanwhile have been fixed. The trade for Duane Brown has been huge for Russell Wilson and his offense – so you can bet he’ll get some solid protection. With time and space, Wilson should be able to pick apart the Atlanta secondary downfield. The Falcons have some glaringly apparent holes within their stop unit – particularly in that secondary. Doug Baldwin and Jimmy Graham are both due for big outings. Expect a potent aerial attack from the Seahawks on Monday night, and those chains should be moving.
Atlanta crushed a depleted Cowboys team, and people seem to think they’re poised to go into Seattle on Monday Night Football and beat them. I’m not ready to believe that just yet – despite their impressive analytic numbers. I still need to see more, and I realize the Seahawks too have much more to give. For me, the line is just too short here since the Seahawks are a different beast at home. Look for Ryan’s struggles to continue on Monday night.
PICK = Seahawks -1 (-105)
