Preview: Portugal – Spain (World Cup 2018, 15.06.2018)

Two strong teams in Group B will have a battle tomorrow, and it will be the second match of the group. It is a match full of stars! Portugal’s probable start-up line is Rui Patricio, Pepe, Bruno Alves, Soares, Guerreiro, Carvalho, Moutinho, Bernardo Silva, Joao Mario, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Andre Silva. Spain’s start-up line is De Gea, Sergio Ramos, Pique, Jordi Alba, Dani Carvajal, Koke, Thiago, Asensio, Silva, İsco, and Costa. If you are still unsure about your bet, keep on reading to create the perfect bet with your betting account via betting agent.

Portugal-vs-Spain

Portugal became the champion in Euro 2016 and made a dream come true. Therefore, they are ready for the World Cup mentally. In the playoffs, they competed against Switzerland head to head and were able to finish the group as leaders. They defeated Switzerland 2-0 at home and took the ticket to the World Cup with goal difference. Fernando Santos and his team had nine wins and one loss in 10 matches. They scored 32 goals in total, however, conceded only 4 goals. Therefore, they were the most scorer team, but also the team who conceded the least number of goals in the group. They are the favorites of the group alongside Spain. If they win their very first match, they will have a huge advantage of finishing the group successfully.

Spain is odds-on favorite obviously. If everything goes well, we expect them to finish the groups as leaders or as first front-runners. Morocco and Iran are easier to beat than Portugal. In the playoffs, they were not defeated and finished their group in the first place with 28 points. That’s how they reserved their seat in the World Cup. We need to inform that Alvaro Morato won’t be in the squad. He was transferred to Chelsea last year and had a very bad season. Instead of him, Rodrigo was included. He performs very well in Valencia. Rodrigo’s team tied with Switzerland 1-1 and beat Tunisia 1-0.

We believe that it’s not an easy match to guess the winner. Spain are the favorites, however, Portugal has effective scorers, and we think that they can find the net at least once. Our preferred choice is both teams to score, and we’ll place it on VIP-IBC. We’re so glad that we’ve recently opened an account from there because it’s so easy to have access to the best odds in this betting software for multiple bookmakers.

Preview: Flamengo – Bahia (Brazilian Série A, 31.05.2018)

In Brazilia, Flamengo host Bahia at Estadio Maracana for the mid-week encounter. Currently, the hosts are at the 1st place with 14 points, and the visitors are at the 15th place with 8 points. We believe it’s a very suitable pick for an assured profit. So, if you can find yourself a place with best betting platform for multiple bookmakers, you’re good to go!

Flamengo vs Bahia via BET-IBC!

Flamengo is one of the most effective teams this season in the leadership of Mauricio Barbieri. They’re protecting their place as the leaders with the points they collected at the end of seven matches. Moreover, they got through the group stage of Copa Libertadores successfully. They finished the groups as the second team, two points behind of River Plate. Last week, they broke their winning streak of two matches after beating Atletico Mineiro with Everton Ribeiro’s single goal. As you can remember, they had lost the away match against Chapecoense and tied with Vasco Gama. Another reason to support Flamengo is that they conceded only one goal for the last five home matches in and outside of the league. We don’t know if we have to say this as you probably already know, but they are pretty ahead of Bahia. That’s also what the odds are saying. However, we still need to underline that team’s scorer Guerrero, who will be away from the field for a year, and Orlando Berrio won’t be playing in this match. However, we’ll be able to watch the team’s other talented scorers such as Vinicius Junior, Jose Henrique, and Marlos Moreno.

On the other hand, it seems like Bahia will struggle a lot this season. They are only 2 points ahead of the relegation line with 8 points they were able to collect out of seven matches. Thanks to the 3-0 victory they had against Vasco Gama last week, they are at least less concerned at the moment. They reached all of their points in home matches, which also means that they haven’t been able to earn a point as the away team. Not only points but also they couldn’t score a goal.

Let’s dive into some statistics now. For the last 7 home matches against Bahia, Flamengo won and tied three times, and lost only once. As you can see, statistics also indicate a victory from the hosts. Another fact is that both teams made a contribution to the score in four of the last five matches against each other.

We are expecting a very guaranteed win from Flamengo against Bahia that can’t even produce a goal. Therefore, you can also try your luck by giving the hosts a clean sheet. There’s only one betting platform with multiple bookies that you can find the best odds for these options.

Preview: Hamburger SV – Borussia Dortmund (Bundesliga, 07.03.2015)

Ever since stating their objective was not a Champions League place, but the Bundesliga stay, Borussia Dortmund started playing better. Now, BVB is getting ready for the Bundesliga trip to Hamburg while they wait on the news about Marco Reus’ injury.

Borussia Dortmund secured a DFB Pokal quarter-final qualification after a 2-0 win over Dynamo Dresden, where Immobile scored a brace in the second half. They would have lost the tie if it were up to Mats Hummels, who lost the ball to Eilers right after Immobile opened the score. Langerak saved the team from the blushes and they can now fully concentrate on Bundesliga. BVB had three different goalscorers in the Revierderby win, all in the last 15 minutes of the game, and it remains to be seen just how well they can build a team around Immobile if Reus will be set to miss the Hamburg match.

After the 0-8 disaster against Bayern Munich, Hamburg’s attempts to escape relegation zone are proving futile. They lost against Eintracht Frankfurt (they have Meier) but managed to record an unexpected 1-1 draw against Gladbach. They tend to play more stable at Imtech Arena, which had Zinnbauer state that his team is not thinking about relegation because they will start winning points soon. The good news in their camp came from Behrami and Cleber who took part in team training and are targeting their return on Saturday. Hamburg’s coach also expects Lassoga, Olic, and Jansen in today’s training session, but he is unsure whether they will be able to start from the beginning.

Hamburger-SV-vs-Borussia-Dortmund-7-march-2015

Zinnbauer is aware Behrami will lead Hamburg on the pitch and is willing to build the team around him if the medical staff will give the ok until Friday. Dortmund has improved greatly in the last couple of matches, and they are the obvious favorites to win, even if in the last five matches, including the ones when they were at the top of their form, they only have one win, while Hamburg has four wins. If Cleber does indeed return in his center-back role, Immobile and Aubameyang will have trouble scoring early in the game. Speaking about goals, BVB has scored at least three in their last four Bundesliga matches, and in their four wins, they have conceded four goals, against Mainz and Stuttgart, the last placed Bundesliga team.

Hamburg has 6.00 odds to win, Dortmund 1.53, and a draw with a lot of goals has 4.33 odds. Both teams to score have 1.80 odds, BVB with a -1 handicap has 2.25 odds, Hamburg with a +1 handicap 2.60 and over 2.5 goals in the second half 3.75 odds. Ramos, Immobile, and Aubameyang have 2.30 odds to score, Nicolai Müller 4.00, Van der Vaart 5.50 and Stieber 6.00 as an anytime goalscorer. We are going to bet 7 units on Hamburg to score in the second half with 2.20 odds from an original Bet365 account via broker.

Preview: Tottenham – Swansea (Premier League, 04.03.2015)

Tottenham’s attempts to put their Premier League’s campaign back on track are kind of hitting a proverbial brick wall. In the last two weeks, they lost in Europa League, in Premier League and recently they lost the League Cup final against Chelsea. Tomorrow, they host Swansea, who are trailing four points behind them in the table.

After Tottenham won against Arsenal nothing could have predicted the bad month that followed. However, Harry Kane is still preserving his good form, and Tottenham must implement some changes if they are to finally start winning. When at home, they are undefeated in three consecutive matches, and they have won their last matches against Swansea in all competitions. Spurs have managed to score at least two goals in the last two matches, including the 2-3 defeat against Liverpool. Kyle Walker picked up a knock in the match against Chelsea and is under doubt for Swansea, but other than that Pochettino has the entire squad at his disposal.

Tottenham-Hotspur-vs-Swansea-4-march-2015

Swansea will come to White Hart Lane without any pressure, but the one to win for the third time in a row. Sigurdsson and Barrow are under doubt for the Swans, while Tom Caroll cannot play against his club. Swansea won against Burnley and are firmly planted in the first half of the table, but ever since winning against Manchester United, they think they can record another resounding win. Take into account the fact that Swansea lost just one of their last four away games in Premier League and the 4.80 odds for a Swansea win will start making sense.

A Tottenham win has odds as low as 1.75, and a draw comes with 3.80 odds. Both teams to score with 1.80 odds, Tottenham to keep a clean sheet in the first half have 1.45 odds, Swansea 2.00 and Harry Kane has 2.10 odds to score. Soldado and Adebayor both have 2.60 odds to score while Gomis has 3.80 odds as an anytime goalscorer. We are betting 8 units on an odd number of goals in the first half with 2.05 odds from Ladbrokes.

Preview: Southampton – Crystal Palace (Premier League, 03.03.2015)

Southampton are attempting once again to get back on track as they get ready to host Crystal Palace on St. Mary’s stadium. Some time ago the hosts were third in Premier League, sure of a Champions League qualification and winning against Arsenal, now they are 6th in the table and at least five points from a direct Champions League qualification.

Last year, home matches were what Southampton could count on for the three points, this year they have three defeats in the last five home matches and two draws. By facing Crystal Palace, they face the same team who sent them home from the FA Cup at the end of January. Alderweireld could finally make a return to the squad, while everyone is left wondering why Southampton suddenly became so shy in front of the goal since they have one of the best midfielders in the league. Many fans attribute Southampton’s drop in form to the fact that the team relies too much on Pelle to deliver, and are limited in options should the striker be absent or in a bad shape.

Southampton-vs-Crystal-Palace-3-march-2015-prediction

Crystal Palace are displaying the same mixed results as their opponents and are currently residing on the 12th place in the table. After two defeats in a row with the same 1-2 score against Arsenal and Liverpool, they went on to win with 3-1 against West Ham. Sanogo, Thomas, Williams, Campbell and Chamakh are all absent due to injuries while Murray is suspended. Mutch is under doubt after being forced off the field against West Ham and tipsters are speculating Gayle could be headlining the visitor’s forward line.

The Saints won against Crystal Palace in the first half of the season, but they also won two out of the last six matches which could see the visitors trying to capitalize on said form. A tight match is to be expected from both teams, but the bookmakers favor Southampton to win with 1.70 odds, Crystal Palace with 5.25 and a draw has 3.65 odds. We are going to bet 8 units on both teams to score with 2.15 odds from Titan Bet. If you prefer the goalscorer market the odds are as followed: Pelle has 2.10 odds to score, Mane 2.25, Long 2.30 and Tadic with Elia both have 2.75 odds to score. For Crystal Palace Gayle has 4.00 odds to score, Ameobi 4.33 and Puncheon with Bolasie both have 4.50 odds as anytime goalscorers.

Preview: Wolfsburg – Hertha Berlin (Bundesliga, 22.02.2015)

Wolfsburg will put an end to the 22nd Bundesliga matchday when they get ready to host Hertha Berlin to continue their unbeaten run. The hosts are currently the second Bundesliga team, not giving up on the title, with eight points behind the leaders. Hertha Berlin is 17th in Bundesliga and with only 21 points are in the path of direct relegation.

Bas Dost and De Bruyne are where Wolfsburg’s latest goals are coming from, with the Dutchman scoring a brace that gave Wolfsburg the win in their clash against Sporting. Ever since winning against Bayern Munich the Wolves are on a goalscoring spree, Bas Dost leads with six goals in just two matches and Kevin De Bruyne has four goals in this year’s Bundesliga. Perisic and Felipe are still missing for Wolfsburg, while Hertha will be without Ben-Hatira, Cigerci, van der Bergh, Jarstein and Baumjohann.

Wolfsburg-vs-Hertha-22-february-2015-prediction

Hertha Berlin has only one win in this year’s Bundesliga, which is coincidentally the only match where they managed to score, against Mainz 05. The match against Wolfsburg is not meant to help Hertha avoid relegation, if they were unable to score against Freiburg, how are they expected to do so against a team that scored 13 in 2015? Granted Hertha won against Wolfsburg back in September with 1-0, but the Wolves were still finding their Bundesliga footing which they have found now.

Wolfsburg might have invested too much effort in the Sporting game and might end up being tired, but they can’t afford any points being dropped which is why they can easily score in both halves with 1.98 odds from 888sport. Hertha Berlin has 8.65 odds to win, Wolfsburg has 1.35 and over 2.5 goals comes with 1.60 odds. Wolfsburg to win at least one half has 1.16 odds, Hertha Berlin 3.85 and a Bas Dost goal has 1.93 odds. De Bruyne and Schürrle both have 2.70 odds to score, while Salomon Kalou and Julian Schieber both have 5.50 odds as anytime goalscorers. We are going to bet 7 units on Hertha Berlin with the most corners with 2.95 odds from 888sport.
