RB Leipzig v Napoli Predictions & Betting Odds – 22nd February 2018

RB Leipzig v Napoli Betting Preview – UEFA Europa League 22nd February 7.45pm

German side Leipzig have a good 3-1 lead in this tie to defend as they head back to home soil looking to finish the job on Thursday night. That would put them through to the round of sixteen in the UEFA Europa League for the first time. It was an impressive result out in Rome, but they can expect a fight back from the Serie A leaders who now have nothing to lose really.

RB Leipzig News and Form

That was a really impressive first leg win that Leipzig laid down over Napoli with Timo Werner netting a brace. Can they finish the job? From their home form in Europe this season the Germans are W1 D1 L1 so far and they haven’t picked up a home clean sheet either so it is worth looking at both teams to score at *** for 3/4 as Napoli have to come out hard. In total Leipzig have conceded five goals in their three European home games so far this season. They dropped down from the group stage of the Champions League, their first ever showing there in what is their debut UEFA competition campaign. Their current form across all competitions has seen them win three of their last four played but at home their form is patchy at best having produced a W2 D2 L2 record. Again there has been a lack of clean sheets from them at the Red Bull Arena, having taken just one in their last six outings there. Four of their last six games at home have made it over the 2.5 goal line which should be a good option for this one.

Napoli News and Form

The loss that Napoli suffered in the first leg against Leipzig (and the Italians were missing key starters for that game), is the only set back they have suffered in their last seven games across all competitions (W6 L1). So they are a form side but their European campaign hasn’t gone all that well. They went just W2 L4 in their Champions League group stage which is why they dropped to the Europa League. The Italians have now lost four of their last five away games in Europe and each of their three road games in the Champions League group stage ended in 2-1 defeats. In the *** correct score market an RB Leipzig 2-1 option is at 7/1* (Betting Odds taken at 8:22 p.m. on February 20th, 2018). More bad news is that Napoli have lost all five European ties in which they have been defeated at home in the first leg. The Italians had actually never won in Germany either from eight visit there (D3 L5) until they managed to get a 4-1 win at Wolfsburg in the first leg of the 2014/15 UEFA Europa League quarter-final so that’s not a good record which they boast. The Partenopei are now going to be stuck between chasing away goals and not getting picked off at the back.

RB Leipzig v Napoli Head to Head

This is the first meeting between the two clubs.

RB Leipzig v Napoli Betting Odds*

RB Leipzig 8/11, Draw 14/5, Napoli 7/2* (Betting Odds taken at 8:22 p.m. on February 20th, 2018)

RB Leipzig v Napoli Predictions

There should be plenty of life left in this tie yet as Napoli have to go out and find themselves three goals. They aren’t likely to do that at the end of the day as they have not clicked well in Europe at all this season. Look for a home win and both teams to score.

Mr Fixit’s Top Tips: Messi stings the Blues

LIONEL MESSI finally got his goal against Chelsea to land the Super Single – although he was handed it on a plate.

Chelsea were the better side but one mistake means they’ll be up against it in the second leg in the Nou Camp although they are now unbeaten in eight against Barcelona.

My fairly safe Top Treble landed at 7-5 thanks to Aston Villa, Cambridge and Morton not losing but no Besiktas goal – they were on the backfoot after a 16th-minute red card – beat the both to score double as they crashed 5-0 at Bayern Munich.

Well done to all the winners including Greg with his 25-1 goals tip and earlier Hibs reserves.

There are two more Champions League games tonight – Sevilla v Man United and Shakhtar Donetsk v Roma – and I’ve posted a separate preview.

There are four big Championship games in England with five of the top six in action. Cardiff should beat Ipswich and Wolves can see off Norwich while there could be goals at Bristol City v Fulham and Derby v Leeds.

In League One Rochdale follow their draw against Spurs with a home meeting against MK Dons and could have some tired legs.

Real Madrid travel to Leganes in La Liga with Cristiano Ronaldo rested and Cristiano Ronaldo and Toni Kroos, Luka Modric and Marcelo injured. Should still be too good for a side that hasn’t scored in their last four.

I’ll post top tips in the morning after checking latest team news.

Champions League Tips: Man Utd will keep it tight

MAN UNITED are hot favourites to reach the last eight of the Champions League but can’t take Sevilla lightly tonight.

Jose Mourinho’s men are no bigger than 4-9 with Sky Bet to qualify while the Spaniards are 9-4 at McBookie.

Sevilla changed manager just before Christmas and after a difficult start Vincenzo Montella has won three in a row and led his men to the Spanish Cup Final.

The Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan will be rocking and Mourinho would probably settle for a draw and try to finish the tie at Old Trafford.

A stalemate in Spain pays 12-5 at William Hill while United are 13-8 with Betfred to win. Sevilla are a best 21-10 at Betway.

Stats say Romelu Lukaku doesn’t score against the best teams but Alexis Sanchez does. That’s why Mourinho bought him and he is 5-2 at Paddy Power to score.

Tonight’s other tie sees Roma travel to Ukraine to face a Shakktar Donetsk side who returned from their winter break at the weekend to win 5-0 away to Odessa.

Shakhtar won all of their group games, including defeats of Man City and Napoli, and managed to hold on to all of their stars in the transfer window.

This will be a tight affair and while Roma are hot favourites to qualify at 8-15 with McBookie they could lose narrowly tonight.

A home win pays 13-8 with William Hill and I’ll be on Shahktar not to lose at 4-9 with ***.

All one of Shakhtar’s six Champions League games have totalled at least two goals as have 18 of their 20 games this season.

They have kept just one clean sheet in their last 13 so it’s unlikely to be 1-0. Back over 2.5 match goals at 21-20 with McBookie and if you believe in Shakhtar consider the Ukrainians and over 2.5 goals at 3-1 with Coral.

Facundo Ferreira is top scorer in Ukraine with 15 and returned to action at the weekend with a double. He is 21-10 at Paddy Power to net.

Recommended Bets

  • Sevilla v Man United draw
  • Shakhtar v Roma over 2.5 goals
  • Ferreira to score

Alan Thomson’s Tips: Karajini a knockout bet at Kempton

KARAJINI (8.15) has a progressive profile and is fancied to score at Kempton this evening.

The filly was only denied close home by battle-hardened handicapper Heaven’s Gust at Newcastle 12 days ago and this looks a slightly easier assignment.

At Newcastle, TIME TO BLOSSOM (2.40) may well appreciate a return to 1m 2f after a couple of solid effort over longer trips.

The trip of 1m 6f at Chelmsford City probably caught her out last time when third to Godolphin’s Ocean Of Love.

Keith Dalgleish has inherited Mystikana from Marcus Tregoning and she showed promise when third to well-backed Inn The Bull at Wolverhampton on her first start for the Carluke yard.

CORINTHIA KNIGHT (3.45) and To Wafiq are set to fight out the finish to a warm Conditions sprint.

Corinthia Knight ended ther season with a trip to America, running an excellent fourth to Declarationofpeace in the Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint.

She has been beaten twice since over six furlongs back on home soil but has looked an out and out five furlong horse.

To Wajif is a formidable opponent, having twice run well in Group 3 company. Roger Varian’s filly ran probably her best race when third to Havana Grey in the Molecomb Stakes at Goodwood.

Recommended bets

Johnb’s Wednesday Tips

  • Newcastle 3:45 – Corinthia Knight 15-8 Skybet
  • Kempton 6:15 – Tribal Warrior 7-4 NAP
  • Kempton 8:15 – Karijini 15-8 NB

DraftKings NHL Picks – February 20th

After a quiet three-game main slate last night, the NHL DFS action picks up again tonight with a nine-game Tuesday slate. Let’s get into it!

C – Sean Couturier (PHI) – $7,000 vs. MON

Few, if any, teams on this slate have a better matchup than the Flyers do on home ice tonight against the Canadiens. Of course, Couturier is enjoying a massive breakout season that has seen him score 29 goals so far and add 30 helpers on 170 shots on goal. The red-hot Flyers are winners of six of their last seven games and their offense stayed very hot with another seven goals against the Rangers their last time out. A home date against the NHL’s 28th-ranked road defense should keep them hot tonight.

C – Bo Horvat (VAN) – $5,700 vs. COL

Horvat missed some time this season with an injury, but overall he’s had a quality campaign. For the season, he’s scored 15 goals, added 15 assists, scored six power play goals and added 95 shots on goal. He’s also scored three goals and added two assists over his last four games. The visiting Avalanche turn from a solid defensive team at home to a poor defensive team on the road as they rank 27th in terms of road defense. Coming off a six-goal showing, this is a nice chance for the Canucks to stay hot.

W – Claude Giroux (PHI) – $6,900 vs. MON

The Couturier/Giroux duo has been one of the very best in the NHL this season. After a disappointing campaign last year, Giroux has tallied 69 points this year which is good enough for a third place tie league-wide. He’s also been extremely hot as of late, recording 11 points over his last six games including a three-point game against the Rangers on Sunday. Let’s go ahead and roster what should be a highly owned duo tonight.

W – Brock Boeser (VAN) – $6,400 vs. COL

The NHL’s leading rookie goal scorer should be able to add to his lofty total tonight in a favorable home tilt against the Avalanche. Boeser has scored 27 goals this season including three over his last seven games. Therefore, he brings a real nice floor with him into play when we also factor in his 157 shots on goal as well. The Avalanche also sport the NHL’s 25th-ranked road penalty kill, so there should be lots of looks for the Horvat/Boeser duo tonight.

W – Danton Heinen (BOS) – $3,900 vs. EDM

With the way the Bruins can score and the way the Oilers can give them up, I like Heinen’s value upside tonight. He skates on the Bruins’ third line and second power play unit and enters play tonight with a very healthy 12 goals and 38 points in 53 games. His spot on the second power play unit could be a productive one considering the Oilers are an atrocious 54.8% on the penalty kill at home and own the NHL’s worst home defense to boot.

D – Shayne Gostisbehere (PHI) – $6,100 vs. MON

Gostisbehere is the obvious choice to use to complete this three-man stack for the Flyers. He’s enjoying a quality campaign with 45 points on the season, good for fourth among NHL defensemen. He’s also been on quite a run lately, recording one goal and 11 assists across his last nine games. This is a very high upside trio in a very favorable matchup on home ice against one of league’s worst defensive teams.

D – Charlie McAvoy (BOS) – $4,100 vs. EDM

Another rookie having a real nice first season in the league is McAvoy who forms a nice mini-stack alongside Heinen on the Bruins’ second power play unit. McAvoy has five goals and 21 assists on the season and skated more than 26 minutes in Boston’s overtime win over the Flames last night. Considering the brutality of Edmonton’s home penalty kill and defense I feel good about this lower owned mini-stack tonight.

G – Jacob Markstrom (VAN) – $7,300 vs. COL

The Avs’ defense gets much worse on the road, and so does their offense. Colorado goes from scoring 3.52 goals per game at home to scoring just 2.62 goals per game on the road. The Avalanche also own the NHL’s worst power play on the road at a measly 11.1%. Markstrom isn’t having a spectacular season, but is a solid GPP look against a weak offense. He could see lots of shots too which, if he is up to the task, could prove big on a big slate.

UTIL – Sammy Blais (STL) – $2,600 vs. SJ

We are saving the value for last here with the young Blues’ winger. Blais will play his first game in the NHL since late December tonight against the Sharks after scoring three points over 10 games earlier this season. The best part about Blais tonight is he could be skating with Brayden Schenn and Jaden Schwartz, a spot that could most certainly have him notch a point or two this evening. At almost the minimum price, Blais is my top value option of the night.

FanDuel NHL Picks – February 20th

After a quiet three-game main slate last night, we have a heavier nine-game Tuesday slate to bite into. Let’s go!

C – Sean Couturier (PHI) – $7,600 vs. MON

It’s a big nine-game slate, but I think the Flyers have the best matchup of any team on the slate. The Flyers have been red-hot as of late, winning six of their last seven games while their offense stayed hot with a seven-goal outburst Sunday against the Rangers. Couturier has also been hot himself with eight points over his last six games while he continues to build on his career season. He’s up to 29 goals and 59 points on the season so lock Couturier in against the NHL’s 28th-ranked road defense.

C – Bo Horvat (VAN) – $5,600 vs. COL

While the Avalanche are one of the better defensive teams on home ice, the wheels completely fall off on the road. Colorado ranks ninth in home defense and first in home penalty killing, but those rankings fall to 27th in road defense and 25th in road penalty killing. The Canucks could be a lower owned option tonight for a team in a nice spot. For his part, Horvat has tallied 15 goals and as many assists in 41 games this season with six of those goals coming on the power play. He should get some nice looks in a favorable home matchup tonight.

W – Claude Giroux (PHI) – $7,800 vs. MON

It’s been a huge bounce back season for Giroux after a disappointing campaign last year. His 69 points are tied with Connor McDavid for third in the league while Giroux has been white-hot with 11 points across his last six games. Of course, his chemistry with Couturier has been some of the best the NHL has seen this season as he skated with the breakout superstar at 5v5 and on the top power play unit. The latter could have a big night against the Habs and their 30th-ranked penalty kill.

W – Jakub Voracek (PHI) – $7,300 vs. MON

We are going for the throat with this Flyers cash stack as we will throw Voracek in there as well. While he’s scored just 11 goals on the season, Voracek’s 54 points are the most in the NHL on the campaign. He once skated with Giroux and Couturier on the Flyers’ top line, but has mostly skated on the second line as of late. However, he obviously remains a big part of the Flyers’ top power play unit as evidenced by his 29 power play points, tied for third in the NHL.

W – Brock Boeser (VAN) – $6,300 vs. COL

Interestingly Boeser failed to reach the scoresheet in the Canucks’ route of the Bruins on Saturday, however the rookie has some high upside against the visiting Avalanche tonight. Boeser has buried 27 goals on the season, ten of which have come on the power play. He’s added 22 assists and 157 shots on goal as well. Although he missed the scoresheet the other night, he still has three goals and five points over his last seven games so Boeser doesn’t stay quiet for long.

W – Sammy Blais (STL) – $3,100 vs. SJ

Although the Sharks are a solid defensive club, I like the value upside Blais brings to the table. He will play his first NHL game since late December tonight, and the value comes from the fact he should skate alongside Jaden Schwartz and Brayden Schenn on the Blues’ second line. Although he had just three points in 10 NHL games prior to his demotion, Blais has 28 points in 30 AHL games this season, showing me he has the offensive ability to contribute, especially considering his linemates for tonight’s game.

D – Alexander Edler (VAN) – $5,300 vs. COL

We have our second three-man stack complete here with the addition of Edler. He’s quietly enjoying a real nice season the Canucks’ blueline with two goals, 20 assists, 118 shots and 129 blocks as well. Those are some nice peripheral numbers while the point total could get a boost against the NHL’s 27th-ranked road defense. The Canucks just busted out with six goals against the Bruins so perhaps the offense can stay hot tonight in a favorable home matchup.

D – Vince Dunn (STL) – $3,700 vs. SJ

With Dunn and Blais we could have a real quiet, low-owned mini-stack tonight. While Blais may not see any power play time, Dunn continues to man the point on the Blues’ top power play unit. He’s got four goal and 10 helpers on 99 shots this season, but with the increased opportunity we should see more production from Dunn moving forward. The lone defenseman on any top power play unit provides plenty of value upside at this type of price.

G – Connor Hellebuyck (WPG) – $8,200 vs. LA

The Kings aren’t the worst offense around, but the Jets and Hellebuyck are so darn good at home that it’s real tough to pass him up at this price tonight. The Jets rank in a fifth-place tie with the Bruins by yielding just 2.37 goals per game at home while their league-leading 3.83 goals per game at home should ensure he gets the goal support required for the win. Hellebuyck is 22-3-2 with a 2.11 GAA and a .928 Sv% at home this season. Enough said.

February 20th, 2018 NHL Betting Tips

Written by Scott on Tuesday, February 20th, 2018

A good night for us with the tips as we went 1-0.

We went with Over 6 in the Wild vs Islanders game and the Wild won 5-3.

The Capitals beat the Sabres 3-2.  Ovechkin scored his 35th goal of the season.  This is the 10th time in his career that he has hit this number.

The Hawks got back to their losing ways when the Kings won 3-1.  The Hawks are now 1-8-1 over their last 10 games and are comfortably in last place in the Central, 8 points behind the 6th place team. Phaneuf scored his 2nd goal since joining the Kings.
The Red Wings traded Petr Mrazek to the Flyers for a couple draft picks.  This is going to help the Flyers as both their goalies, Elliott and Neuvirth, are down with injuries.  With only 6 days left until the trade deadline I hope we see some more big names like this getting moved.

We have 9 games going on tonight.

Panthers vs Maple Leafs Betting Tips:

The Panthers have been playing some good hockey going 7-3 over their last 10 games.  They are going to need to continue that play to climb back into the playoffs picture.

The Leafs are 8-2 over their last 10 games. They are sitting in 3rd in the Atlantic Division.

Both teams are coming into this game scoring goals.  The Panthers last 4 games have hit 9, 9, 7 and 12.  The Leafs last 4 hit 5, 8, 9 and 7.

I like this one to continue being high scoring .

Over 6 incl OT/SO

USA: -130 Odds at Bovada
Everyone Else: 1.76 Odds at ***

(Odds correct as of 2018/02/20 11:35:42 AM EST but are subject to change.)

Predators vs Red Wings Betting Tips:

The Predators have been playing some great hockey of late.  They are such a strong team who made the finals last year and I expect them to have another good playoffs this time around.  They are sitting in 1st place in the Central, tied with the Jets but have a game in hand.

The Wings have began moving some of their players with the trade of Mrazek.  They have a long way to go to make the playoffs and I don’t see it happening and neither do they.

Predators win incl OT/SO 

Canada: 1.83 Odds at Sports Interaction
USA: -120 Odds at Bovada
Everyone Else: 1.83 Odds at ***

(Odds correct as of 2018/02/20 11:35:42 AM EST but are subject to change.)

Lightning vs Capitals Betting Tips:

The Lightning are leaking goals this month allowing 3.4 per game.  The are no longer in first place in the League but are still in first in the East.

The Caps are in 1st place in the Metro division.
But they are 5-3-2 over their last 10 games so i expect them to close out the year strong to better their spot in the standings for the playoffs.

The last time these two played each other it stayed under but the two before that went over.  I like this one to do that too

Over 6 incl OT/SO 

Canada: 2.05 Odds at ***

Mississippi State vs Texas A&M – NCAAM Basketball Pick for February 20th

Mississippi State Bulldogs (19-8) at Texas A&M Aggies (17-10)

The betting line information used for this article was taken from Bovada at 6:30 AM PST on 2-20-18. Some odds may have changed.

We picked up our second consecutive win last night on college hoops when we backed the Maryland Terrapins on the road against Northwestern. It is hard to take road teams in league play, but I had a strong feeling that the Wildcats would come out flat after blowing a 27-point lead to Michigan State in their last game.

I was right, and Maryland came out hot and built an early lead. But give Northwestern some credit, they put a run together and kept this game competitive most of the evening before running out of steam late and eventually losing 71-64.

It was a tough spot but a good one. Maryland had been terrible on the road and Northwestern had been great at home, but in the end, the emotions were too much to overcome for the Wildcats. You always have to remember that in college basketball you are dealing with kids on the court, and state of mind and emotion are always going to play a much bigger role than in the pro game.

Today I will focus on two more teams that find themselves right on the bubble when the Mississippi State Bulldogs play the Texas A&M Aggies.

The Mississippi State Bulldogs will travel to College Station Tuesday night for an SEC showdown with the Aggies of Texas A&M. The Bulldogs of Mississippi State could badly use a signature resume-building win tonight. Right now, they find themselves on the outside looking in for the NCAA tournament, but with a win tonight against a solid A&M team they could find themselves in the tournament.

For the Aggies, I wouldn’t exactly call them a bubble team, I would say right this minute they are very safely in the field, but a lot of that is for things they did earlier in the year. If they continue to stumble down the stretch in the SEC, they could see themselves left out in March.

Texas A&M is a -6.5-point favorite tonight at home. The game total over-under is set at 138.5 points. Tipoff is scheduled for4:00 PM PST from Reed Arena.

The Texas A&M Aggies hold the title of the most inconsistent team in the country this season. There have been times that they looked like national champion contenders. Like when they beat West Virginia, Penn State, Oklahoma State, and USC in the non-conference. But there have also been times that they looked like a team that deserved to be in the NIT. Losses to LSU, Arkansas, and Missouri in the last month have been tough ones.

It is hard to say which team is going to show up tonight for A&M. On any given night they can beat any team in the country by double digits. On a bad night? Well, that explains why they have lost two straight games and are 6-8 in SEC league play. The one place that Aggies have been somewhat consistent is at home.

The Aggies have won five straight home games in SEC play. This includes a big win against perennial SEC powerhouse, the Kentucky Wildcats. The Aggies must put on a great performance tonight if they want to hold off a very motivated Mississippi State team.

Mississippi State has struggled badly on the road in SEC play this season. They have road losses to Vanderbilt, Missouri, Kentucky, Alabama, Florida, and Mississippi. That one lone road win in league play for the Bulldogs?  Against a South Carolina Game Cocks team that might not make the NIT this year. The Bulldogs need this win just to be mentioned in the NCAA tournament conversation.

This is more situational betting for me. If this game were in Mississippi, I would be backing the Bulldogs. But it’s not, it’s in Texas and I have no choice but to back the home team. Both of these teams can’t seem to win road games in conference play, so why buck the trend?

The 6.5-points seem a little high to me, but when you look at the recent run at home for A&M, many of those games weren’t all that close. So I think they find a way to cover that number.

The Aggies are certainly more than -6.5-points better than Mississippi State at home if they give a full effort. And that is what I expect from them tonight. A hard-fought game that sees the Aggies pull away in the second half and coast to a double-digit victory and cover. Feels like 82-70 Aggies.

Give me the Texas A&M Aggies laying some wood tonight -6.5-points at home!

The Bet: Texas A&M Aggies -6.5 points

Liverpool v West Ham Betting Tips & Odds – 24/02/18

Liverpool v West Ham Betting Tips & Odds

In our Liverpool v West Ham betting preview we look at the best possible bets between the two sides.


Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool welcome West Ham to Anfield on Saturday looking to pick up a big three points that could see them leapfrog Manchester United into second position. The Reds are currently just two points behind their north west rivals coming into the weekend and with United not in action until Sunday this gives them an opportunity to apply some pressure. The hosts are in fantastic form at the moment having won eight of their last eleven games in all competitions and they’ll be very confident that they can make it nine here. The visitors, managed by former Everton man David Moyes, are huge outsiders to get anything here but they’ve proven a few times this season that they’re not a side to write off. They’ve taken points off Tottenham, Chelsea and Arsenal already this season and they’re in decent form, having lost just one of their previous eight PL games.

Jurgen Klopp’s men return to Premier League action in fine form

Klopp’s Reds continue to go from strength to strength

It’s been a productive season for Liverpool and boss Jurgen Klopp, with the Reds on course to achieve their best finish under the German since he arrived at Anfield back in 2015. The Reds are currently third in the Premier League, just two points behind Manchester United and on course to achieve a top four finish for the second successive which indicates decent progress. Klopp has made Liverpool one of Europe’s most feared sides when it comes attacking, with only Manchester City (72) hitting more league goals than the Merseysiders (61). There were concerns when they sold Philippe Coutinho in the transfer window that they could lose some of their momentum but that hasn’t been the case, with their prolific front three continuing to do the business.

Their attacking trio of Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah were all at their brilliant best in Liverpool’s most recent outing, when they made the trip to Porto in the Champions League. It looked like a difficult game on paper against a Porto side that’s still unbeaten domestically, but the Reds produced a ruthless attacking display to rout them 5-0 and take a massive step towards the quarter-finals. All three of their forwards were on the scoresheet with Mane stealing the show, netting a superb hat-trick to seal huge victory. They’ve had ten days to recover and prepare for this clash so we’re expecting them to come flying out the blocks in front of an expectant Anfield crowd and win this game. They’re one of two sides left in the Premier League to be defending an unbeaten home record (Manchester City) and quite frankly we can’t see that run coming to an end here.

Liverpool’s forward line have been a real force to be reckoned with this season

Moyes looking to cause an upset on his return to Merseyside

Making the trip to Anfield are David Moyes’ West Ham who’ve really improved over the last few weeks. The Hammers have lost just two of their last twelve Premier League games which has seen them climb up the table and creep away from trouble. They’re currently up in twelfth position after 27 games which makes great reading for their fans, with their fortunes changing drastically since Moyes replaced Slaven Bilic back in November. They were down in the relegation zone when the Scot arrived at the club which shows how much better they’re doing, but due to the competitive nature of the Premier League they’re still only just four points above the drop zone so they’re not safe yet.

West Ham have had plenty of time to prepare for this clash due to no European or FA Cup commitments, with their last outing coming two weeks ago where they picked up a massive win. Goals from the in-form Javier Hernandez and Marko Arnautovic sealed a 2-0 win over fellow strugglers Watford, which could prove to be a vital three points come the end of the campaign. They had gone four without a victory before that one so it was imperative that they claimed a positive result going into this break. The club have been victims of a cruel injury crisis over the last few weeks but they’re starting to creep back to full strength. One man who’s been sorely missed is forward Michail Antonio who’s without a doubt one of their best players and he enjoys himself against Liverpool, scoring in all four of his appearances against the Reds for West Ham so he’ll be one to watch here.

David Moyes will be desperate to cause an upset on his return to Merseyside

February 20th, 2018 Betting Tips: NHL, College Basketball

Posted: February 20, 2018

The NHL trade deadline is just six away and there is sure to be some big moves between now and then. Last year’s deadline saw Kevin Shattenkirk going to the Capitals and the Wild getting Martin Hanzal. There are some big names that could be on the move this year with Rick Nash being the biggest one out there.

There isn’t much in the way of solid rumors out there, but a couple of hypothetical landing places for Nash might be the Blues or the Predators. The Blues are having a great year, but really need help on the power play while the Preds should just go for it and attempt to get back to the Cup.

You have to wonder if the Golden Knights will do anything as well. They are the best team in the NHL by points and are pretty set, but this is still a dream season and it’s hard to wonder if they’ll push some of those chips in and just go for it. You won’t get opposing teams enjoying the nightlife of Vegas in the postseason and that could be a difference maker.

College Basketball Betting Tips:

You know it’s a weird season when Arkansas has a better record than Kentucky and is favored at home. Kentucky has been an NBA factory for years now and an off year like this is really weird to see. That said, this is a great match-up for Arkansas. Kentucky had 16 turnovers against West Virginia and they haven’t down well against the press. As long as the Arkansas big men stay out of foul trouble, they should win this one handily. I’m all over Arkansas -4.

Ball State is 13-1 at home this year and tonight faces a Northern Illinois team that is going nowhere. NIU is 3-13 on the road and this one is just too easy not to pick. Ball State -10.

NHL Betting Tips:

There is a great match-up tonight with two of the hottest teams in the NHL facing off in Toronto. Toronto has won five straight home games and has gone over in four of them. Florida is just as hot right now with a 7-3 record over their past ten. They’ve averaged 3.6 goals per in that run and this game looks like another great opportunity for both teams to score some major goals. Toronto is first in the NHL in goals scored this year while Florida has been killing it on the power play during this run. Over 6 goals is the play here.

Philly in regulation -125 is a steal tonight. Montreal is in a bad place right now and they are 1-14 in their last 15 games at Philadelphia. That’s not good. Philly is coming into this one red hot as well with a 6-1 record over the past seven and an awesome 10-3-3 record against Eastern Conference teams. The Flyers are going to roll tonight, no overtime needed. Grab that 60 minute line and reap the profits.

RB Leipzig v Napoli Betting Tips & Odds – 22/02/18

RB Leipzig v Napoli Betting Tips & Odds

In our RB Leipzig v Napoli betting preview we look at what could possibly be the best bets between the two sides.


Two teams that finished third in their respective Champions League groups face each other in the second leg of their Europa League clash at The Red Bull Arena. The hosts head into this fixture with the upper hand after beating Napoli 3-1 in the first leg at The Stadio San Paolo last Thursday, but will they have enough in the tank to finish the job here on home soil?

Napoli are going to have their work cut out here following their 3-1 defeat in the first leg.

Hosts strong on home soil

RB Leipzig have an extremely strong home record this season, they’ve only lost three of their 16 games at The Red Bull Arena in all competitions so will prove to be an extremely difficult side to break down here. Leipzig are currently fifth in the Bundesliga, a colossal 21 points behind league leaders Bayern Munich, the very same team that also knocked them out of the DFB Pokal back in October. The Europa League is the only chance Ralph Hasenhüttl’s men have left of winning silverware this term, so they’ll be going all out here to ensure victory. In effect, the hard part of the job is already done for Leipzig; all they need to do is keep it tight at the back and not concede and they’re through to the next round.

Goals from 21-year-old front man Timo Werner (2) and Armindo Bangna have put Leipzig in an extremely good position ahead of this second leg match-up against Napoli. Maurizio Sarri’s men would have been strong favourites to win that clash at The Stadio San Paolo, but it wasn’t to be as a resilient Leipzig had other ideas. Timo Werner was undoubtedly the game changer in that clash last week, the German international has been in outstanding form this season, he’s scored 16 goals in all competitions and will carry a huge threat here in this tie. Werner is priced at odds of 4/1 to score first in this match with Betfair – that could be a really good bet if you fancy the home teams chances here.

Leipzig have the upper hand here after beating Napoli away from home last Thursday.

Napoli with a huge challenge on their hands

The visitors go into this game knowing they’re going to have to pull off something really special to gain qualification to the next round. After a shock 3-1 home defeat to their German opponents in the first leg last Thursday, Napoli now need to score a minimum of three goals without reply to progress any further in this seasons competition. Although nobody expected the visitors to lose the first leg so convincingly, when you take a look at the team they fielded it’s pretty unsurprising they did. Manager Maurizio Sarri chose to rest Dries Mertens, Lorenzo Insigne and Jose Callejon, his three most influential attacking players ahead of their trip to strugglers SPAL in the league on Sunday.

It’s clear to see where Napoli’s priorities lie this term, they’re gunning for the Serie A title and won’t want to risk any of their key players in this European game that looks to be all but lost already. With that in mind, we can see an RB Leipzig victory in this one, the Germans are 7/10 to win this dual with Coral so that could be a good selection here. Napoli have scored 69 goals in all competitions this season however, so will more than likely nick at least one goal, which leads us to believe that this game could end with both teams scoring. BTTS in this match is priced at odds of 4/5 with Betfair, so that could be another good bet for this game.

Maurizio Sarri is expected to rest his key players once again here.


RB Leipzig win – 7/10 (Coral)

Draw – 13/5 (Ladbrokes)

Napoli win – 7/2 (Betway)

Burnley v Southampton Betting Tips and Odds – 24/02/18

Burnley v Southampton Betting Tips and Odds

In our Burnley v Southampton betting preview we look at the best possible betting tips bet ween the two sides.


On Saturday afternoon this weekend in the Premier League we see Mauricio Pellegrino take his Southampton side on the trip up to Turf Moor to face Sean Dyche’s Burnley. Last season these two teams were in the opposite positions they currently find themselves. The hosts were battling the wrong end of the table whereas Saints were pushing for a Europa League spot. However this time round it’s Burnley fighting for a European spot while Southampton are panicking about the potential of playing Championship football next year.

These two sides met in the reverse fixture back in November when Sean Dyche’s men performed an inch perfect smash and grab result. The hosts had the majority of the ball and much more chances than the visitors. But just as it looked like it was going to end a bore draw, Sam Vokes headed home with Burnley’s only shot on target with just nine minutes left on the clock.

Sam Vokes (middle) will be hoping to add to his goal tally for the season

Will they go twelve without a win?

The home side Burnley head into the visit of Southampton knowing that this is the perfect opportunity for them to get back to winning ways. They’re still having a wonderful season but they’re currently going through a terrible run of form. Without a win in their last eleven matches in all competition, Sean Dyche will know it’s vital for them to pick up three points as the chasing pack close in on them. The current situation finds them sat in seventh place in the table, nine points behind Arsenal but just a single point above Leicester City. Burnley have had a tough set of home fixtures seeing them welcome Spurs, Liverpool, Man United and Man City in consecutive games at Turf Moor. So they’ll be happy to be through that tricky run.

In their most recent match they travelled to the Liberty Stadium to face a Swansea side who have been on fire under new gaffer Carlos Carvalhal. Burnley looked the likeliest victors for much of the game but the introduction of Swansea’s club-record signing Andre Ayew inspired a stirring finish from the hosts. Ki Sung-yueng’s late strike saw Burnley suffer a frustrating defeat in a game they really should’ve got something from.

Sean Dyche is doing a fantastic job at Burnley

Have they turned a corner?

The away side Southampton go into the trip to Burnley hoping to continue with their much improved form as late. Overall it’s been a disappointing season so far but recently their results and performances have picked up. After the highs of last years impressive campaign it’s been frustrating for Saints fans this time round. However after a run of 9 games in all competitions without a win, Mauricio Pellegrino’s side have now lost just 1 in their last 8. This is including a decent run in the FA Cup which has seen them progress through to the QF where they face the joint lowest ranked side left in the competition. In the Premier League they currently find themselves sat in the top spot of the drop zone, a point above Stoke and one below Huddersfield. The lower end of the table is seriously tight so if Saints can put a decent run together they will give themselves some breathing space. Unbeaten in their last three league away matches they will be hoping to extend that to four here.

Their most recent game on Saturday saw them travel to the Hawthorns Stadium to face Alan Pardew’s West Brom in the fifth round of the FA Cup. Saints centre-back Wesley Hoedt took advantage of slack defending to guide home James Ward-Prowse’s corner to put the visitors ahead and then Dusan Tadic’s sublime chip seemed to put the game beyond the Baggies, only for Salomon Rondon’s stunning volley to restore their hopes seconds later. Southampton held on though and will face Wigan Athletic in the quarter final.

Mauricio Pellegrino will want some revenge here

Panthers vs. Maple Leafs NHL Pick – February 20th

The Florida Panthers and Toronto Maple Leafs are both hitting their stride lately. It took a while for Bob Boughner and the Panthers to get going, but they’ve been playing the best hockey of the year at the moment. The first-year head coach, Boughner, really needed to find some momentum. This season was certainly a mulligan for Boughner, his first ever year as a head coach at the NHL level, but he needed to get something positive energy going forward. Boughner steered the Windsor Spitfires of the OHL to multiple Memorial Cups, and hopes to establish that same level of success in the NHL. Nothing to report thus far, as the Panthers enter tonight with a record of 26-24-3. It doesn’t look like much, but Florida were behind the 8-ball early. They’ve responded nicely lately, with seven wins in their last nine games.

Florida was on a horrid stretch, losing seven of nine, but they flipped it around and got their wins back. Despite a somewhat turbulent year, the Panthers are only 6 points behind the Hurricanes for the final wildcard. The Rangers, Blue Jackets, and Islanders are still ahead of them in line, though. Conversely, the Maple Leafs have been playing at a similar pace of late. Note that they’ve won ten of their last twelve games, as the Leafs said goodbye to a rough patch in January. The Maple Leafs can be streaky, and all it can take is being streaky at the right time to go far. They are comfortably in a playoff spot at the moment with a 13 point cushion on the final wildcard spot. The Leafs are 4 points behind the Lightning for the lead in the Atlantic. Head below for our free Panthers vs. Maple Leafs pick.

Florida Panthers vs. Toronto Maple Leafs Pick

For the Maple Leafs, the offence is finally beginning to take shape again. They started the year off well, tapered off, and are now finding a groove. With a young roster, albeit talented, there will be lulls here and there. It didn’t stop Frederik Andersen from calling out his team, though. The team has responded well to the criticism. In their last ten games they have averaged 4.1 goals per game. That equates to one of the hottest offences on the ice at the moment. They have scored at least 3 goals in nine of ten games. Overall, the Leafs rank 5th in the NHL with 3.26 goals per game. Auston Matthews put a dagger through the Red Wings in their last outing, a 3-2 win in the final minute of play in Detroit.

The Panthers have been finding it easy to find the net as well. Note that they have scored 3.6 goals per game in their last ten games. And most recently, the Panthers lit the lamp an average of 4.75 times per game in the last four outings. However, in their last showing which came against the Jets, they were blasted for a final of 7-2. This is the fifth and final spot on their road trip before heading home for six games in a row. With both of these squads surging, it should make for a good one between the Panthers and Leafs. The offence have been at their best of late and should be on display at the ACC. A play on the OVER doesn’t look too bad in Toronto on Tuesday night.

PICK: OVER 6 (-110)

William Hill Found Guilty of Systematic Failures – Bookmaker News

William Hill has become the target of the Gambling Commission’s ire but their £6.2 million fine for what is described as systemic social responsibility and money laundering failures is a warning to all of the betting industry that toleration of such behaviour will no longer be accepted.

An in-depth investigation by the Gambling Commission has revealed that, between November 2014 and August 2016, one of Britain’s leading bookmakers breached anti-money laundering regulations and largely ignored social responsibility guidelines. William Hill’s senior management failed to mitigate risks and to provide sufficient resources to ensure that processes for adhering to the regulations were effective.

Those failures are said to have resulted in 10 customers being allowed to deposit large sums of money linked to criminal offences which saw William Hill make more than £1.2 million while those funds were being ‘laundered’. One customer was allowed to deposit £654,000 over nine months without any checks being carried out and another ‘invested’ £541,000 over 14 months, with nothing more than a cursory conversation backing up his claim that he was making £365,000 a year in salary.

As a result of the investigation, William Hill will have to pay more than £5 million for breaching regulations and hand back the £1.2 million it earned from transactions with the 10 customers, regardless of the origin of the money. In addition, the bookmaker will also have to appoint external auditors to review the effectiveness and implementation of its anti-money laundering and social policies and procedures. It will also have to share findings with the industry as a whole.

Money laundering through bookmakers has become a huge problem for the legal system and this is a loud message that betting firms will pay heavily if they are found to be negligent in their duty to keep tabs on possible criminal activity. Betfred and Coral have also been taken to task by the Gambling Commission in recent times and it’s being made clear that operating licenses are on the line if transgressions continue.

Bournemouth v Newcastle Betting Tips & Odds – 24/02/18

Bournemouth v Newcastle Betting Tips & Odds

In our Bournemouth v Newcastle betting preview we look at the best possible bets between the two sides.


Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth welcome Newcastle United to the Vitality Stadium on Saturday looking to continue their recent good run of form. The Cherries have lost just one of their last eight in the Premier League which has seen them climb out of the relegation zone and up into the top half of the table, with them currently occupying tenth position. Their exploits didn’t go unnoticed too with boss Howe winning the Manager of the Month award for January and they’ll be keen to carry through that momentum into the final eleven games of the season. Newcastle make the huge trip to the south coast three places and points below their opponents in the table so this game gives them a huge opportunity to make up some ground on them. They’ve endured a mixed return to the top flight since winning promotion from the Championship last May but they’re in solid form at the moment, losing just one of their last seven league games.

Eddie Howe was recently named Premier League Manager of the Month for January

Three wins from three for the Cherries at the Vitality

This is Bournemouth’s third year in the Premier League and it again looks like they’re going to achieve survival. The Cherries are without a doubt the smallest club in the top flight but they’ve performed admirably since winning promotion back in 2015, with them improving year-on-year. They achieved their best ever finish last term to finish ninth which was an incredible accomplishment and not many expected them to match or better it this time around, but they have an excellent opportunity to do just that. They come into the weekend in tenth position and just three points behind Everton in ninth, so they’ll be confident that they can at least match their club record finish. They come into the weekend in fine form too after losing just one of their last eight, but that did come in their previous outing against Huddersfield.

It was a big opportunity for the Cherries to put some real distance between themselves and the Terriers but they ended up getting comprehensively beaten 4-1 to bring them right back down to earth. Bournemouth did have some decent chances but the only thing that they had to shout about came on thirteen minutes when Junior Stanislas hit the back of the net to level the scores at 1-1, but that was as good as its got. It was a tough one for them to take, but now back on home soil they’ll be confident that they can return to winning ways with them coming out on top in each of their previous three Premier League games there against Everton (2-1), Arsenal (2-1) and Stoke (2-1). A large part of their turnaround has been Callum Wilson, with the forward contributing six goals (4G 2A) in his last eight appearances and he’ll be their biggest threat again here.

Callum Wilson’s return from injury has been a huge boost for Eddie Howe’s side

Improving Magpies going for back-to-back PL wins for the first time since September

Newcastle make their longest trip of the season in desperate need of three points with their Premier League status still under serious threat. The Magpies come into match day 28 in thirteenth position but due to the competitive nature of the top flight they’re currently just two points above the drop zone, so things can change within an instance. Rafa Benitez has done a magnificent job with United since taking the reigns back in March 2016, guiding them to the Championship title and making them competitive in the Premier League, despite working in very difficult conditions. There’s an awful lot of friction between Rafa and the clubs hierarchy mainly revolving around the clubs wage and transfer structure which has gone down onto the pitch, with them very inconsistent on their return to the top flight.

The Magpies have won just three Premier League games since October which tells you all you need to know about how they’ve fared so far, but they have slowly started to turn a corner over the last few weeks with them losing just one of their last seven league games. Only two of them have ended in victories but Rafa is making them hard to beat, so the results will finally come if they can maintain this level of performance. They haven’t been in league action for just under a fortnight, with them picking up their result of the season against Manchester United. It was a game that they were given no chance in but the produced a magnificent performance to roll out deserved 1-0 winners, courtesy of Matt Ritchie’s second half strike. That result has given everyone at the club a huge boost and they’ll be desperate to follow it up here, but their away form doesn’t fill us with much confidence. They’ve failed to win in nine of their previous eleven away PL games and we’re expecting them to find it tough against the in-form Cherries.

Matt Ritchie scored a priceless goal to seal a huge 1-0 victory over Manchester United last time out
