Here you go, have one of our three football premium bets for free! ----Some stats which might surprise you. In France ligue one, home teams have only won 38.9%. Draws are currently running at 30%, and away wins 31.1%. If you were betting (H/D/A) in every game, you would have had to have averaged better odds than 2.57 (H), 3.33 (D), 3.22 to beat the Bookmakers. Nevertheless, you should look at each game on merit, and always work back from all the factors you have at hand, and the actual odds. So far this season, Angers have recorded a 2-4-3 at home. The hosts are currently fifteenth in the table, but they played 1 or 2 games less than the five teams below them. A win tonight would take Stephane Moulins team into a share of eleventh. Angers have drawn there last five league games, and they played 0-0 (twice) and 1-1 (3 times) during that phase. The hosts have confirmed Pajot, Andreu and Cisse are still unavailable (played 6 games between them). Traore is a slight doubt, but other than that the hosts are good to go! Bordeaux have played the same amount of games has Angers, and they are currently two places higher with two more points on the board. A win here would take the visitors into a clear eleventh place, while a draw would put them on to a share of eleventh. Les Girondins have taken less points (6) on the road than any other team, albeit they played just 8 games away. The visitors where beaten by a Nice penalty (1-0) at the weekend. Other than that they played quite well, and if anything they should have taken something from the game. With that said, Eric Bedouet lost his top goal-scorer to injury on 60 minutes, and they are now without eight times scorer Francois Kamano this evening. Prior that Bordeaux had gone six league matches without defeat, and amongst them was a 1-1 in Lyon and a 2-2 at home to PSG. Bordeaux continue to be without Sankhare, Pablo, Youssouf and Tchouameni. The two meetings between these clubs last season ended in a draw. Prior to that it was Angers who won four from the last five meetings and the other two ended in a draw! With regards to pricing this market at 100% with the factors we have at hand: ANGERS 2.62 DRAW 3.17 BORDEAUX 3.30 Go with the host, because Francois Kamano is a massive miss for Bordeaux. Of course we should take cover with DNB.
Let the show go on - we are giving you one PREMIUM WTA bet for free, but please note we haven’t registered has a charity!! —————Two players who could make a big impact this year, since both have a real game and they are the right age. Interestingly, the pair have already met seven times in the past, and it’s the year younger Anett Kontaveit who leads head to heads by a narrow 4-3. With that said, Sasnovich leads 2-1 on hard court and one of them was at last seasons Brisbane. Kontaveit started the campaign with a win over Carla Suarez Navarro and Petra Kvitova. She’s also beat Monica Puig and Sara Sorribes Tormo here. However, it’s not all be good, because defeats to Tsurenko and Elise Mertens were tame. Amazing that Sasnovich had to play through qualification in Sydney, because her rank of 31 is lofty enough. Nevertheless, she managed that with ultimate ease, and she went on the defeat Kasatkina, Hon and Bacsinszky. With that in mind, we have to question why she was hammered by Kvitova (6-2 6-1) in the semi’s. and, we have a plausible reason, Sasnovich struggles against big hitters. In fact, her history is full of defeats to players who hit the ball hard! We believe if Kontaveit can play aggressive, she can over power her opponent!
Don’t expect a FREE racing pick everyday - However, we want to help out, so here is one for today ————LEGEND OF FRANCE didn’t find much off the bridal from his new mark (102). CLAYTON isn’t as good over hurdles as he was on the flat, and he’s got a big weight. POTTERS MIDNIGHT should be thereabouts, but it’s SHAW’S CROSS for us. Paul Henderson’s seven year old is a strong stayer and he’s expected to come home stronger than the big weights!
The Twolves enter this matchup with 4 wins in their last 5 games and have played well under new head coach Ryan Saunders. This should be a highly anticipated matchup against a Sixers team who is now the home of former disgruntled Wolves' star Jimmy Butler. Jeff Teague and Derrick Rose are questionable for the visitors while Robert Covington remains out. This should be a revenge game of sorts for the Twolves, especially for Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins who were specifically the targets of Butler's bullying during his time at Minnesota. We like the way the visitors have played under the new head coach anyway and the Sixers have been underwhelming with losses to Washington and Atlanta in the past week. Twolves to keep it respectable and we would say an outright win is a real possibility!
Great start for Premium tennis subscribers (6 from 7 bets won). We are having the same number of bets on day two, and we have decided to add this one for FREEMIUM users. Don’t forget our first round offer, if you have ever paid for any service from us in the past you can have all WTA first round tips for free - This also applies to people paying for any other service at time of writing - firstname.lastname@example.org ——— Eugenie Bouchard is a law unto herself. Whichever way you look at it the Canadian has an inconsistent game, and she can go from cruising to missing everything in no space of time. However, the former world number five does appear to be returning to some form, and she leads todays opponent Shuai Peng 2-0. One of those wins (7-6 6-2) was at this tournament in 2017, and Bouchard was in much worse shape at the time! Peng had a great end to 2018 when she won 14 consecutive matches and three tournaments. That is even more incredible considering she missed 4 months through injury. However, the new campaign started with a first round retirement against Kristyna Pliskova (Shenzhen), and she would have been disappointed not to have won a second leg tie breaker and the match that day! Some players suit better, and we believe Genie will benefit from this match-up!
Here is one on us - Join Premium if you have the financial clout and winning mentality ——— email@example.com ———Possession stats are meaning absolutely nothing in this seasons La Liga. Yesterday Betis had a whopping 72% against Real Madrid, but still ended up losing (1-2). Another example was Celta Vigo in Rayo Vallecano (4-2), when 38% possession of Vallecano was enough to create double the amount of shots on target. In there last away game in Atletico Madrid (1-0), only a penalty cost Espanyol. The amazing thing is, the team from Barcelona had 63% possession in a title contenders stadium. On that occasion, Leo Baptistao missed a wonderful chance for the visitors to take the lead, and it’s probably fair to suggest Joan Rubi’s side deserved more from the game. On a more positive note, since then the Periquitos played a controlled game to beat Leganes (1-0) and they drew a cup match in Villarreal. The visitors have Esteban Granero returning from a one match suspension, and Javi Lopez is fit again. Hermoso, Perez and Luis Garcia are the absentees for the visitor! Real Sociedad shocked Real Madrid (0-2) in the last round, albeit that match was made easier by a third minute penalty and a later sending off for Real Madrid. Interestingly, there opponents still created 28 goal attempts and had double the amount of shots on target (8-4), so maybe a fluke? Sociedad have just one win at home, and they are still struggling with injuries. On that note, new coach Imanol Alguacil is still without Zurutuza, Pardo, Gorosabel, Rodrigues, Ramirez and Merquelanz! We are confident that the visitors are smart enough to get something here.
We have four bets today - For the poor people out there who don’t have the ammunition to subscribe, here is one on us ———— MRS BURBIDGE is a bit of a ‘’job’’ horse, meaning that she’s usually heavily bet before winning. In theory, the nine year old has a lot on her plate. BENNY’S GIRL should run her race, and it will be interesting to see what AGENT MEMPHIS does with a first time visor. However, QUANTUM OF SOLACE is probably the one to beat, but we believe GOODGIRLTERESA can return to winning ways. We are a bit surprised that the winning pointer waited so long to go chasing, albeit her new trainer Kayley Wollacott made the switch straight away. She ran well at tough track Exeter, and this is an easier race from a nice mark!
The Pelicans were disappointing in their 110-106 loss to the Timberwolves on Saturday night and ended their modest 3 game winning streak. The Clippers enter tonight's matchup on a 2 game losing streak after losing to the Pistons 109-104 in Blake Griffin's return to Staples Center. The Pelicans should again have the advantage inside with Anthony Davis and Julius Randle against an aging Marcin Gortat and undersized Montrezl Harrell. Nikola Mirotic was kept on a minutes limit for the visitors against the Twolves and he did look a bit rusty but his return is an important one and he provides them with a reliable scorer off the bench. The Clippers have the depth and balance to keep up but we believe the superior talent wins out in the end and that should be the Pelicans.
The Pistons got a much needed win on Saturday in LA as Blake Griffin led his team to a 109-104 win against his former team and broke a 4 game losing slide. The Jazz conclude a 4 game homestand tonight as they try to win their 4th game in a row and 6th in their last 7 overall. Zaza Pachulia is doubtful for the visitors but Ish Smith is probable to make his return from an adductor injury. Ricky Rubio, Raul Neto, Thabo Sefolosha and Dante Exum are out for the hosts. The Jazz are a terrific defensive and rebounding team but they catch a Pistons team that are more than willing to bang inside with one of the best offensive rebounders in the league in Andre Drummond. The Pistons should benefit from 2nd chance opportunities and easy shots close to the basket as opposed to relying on jumpers which can take its toll playing at elevation. Rubio is an important absence for the hosts in our opinion as without him, an even greater weight is placed on Donovan Mitchell to create shots which virtually none of his other teammates are proficient at. These teams met last week in a game the Pistons likely should have won and we believe there is a good chance for a better result tonight. We certainly wouldn't blame anyone for taking the 8 point head start but we believe the outright has a punter's chance!
We promised Freebie users two premium bets for day one, here is the second of them (odds at send time) ———— Barbora Strycova leads head to heads 2-1, but it was Yulia Putintseva who won their meeting only meeting in 2018. We should also mention that two of those matches took place on clay, while the other was on grass! We believe it’s fair to suggest that Putintseva has started the new season better than her opponent, and her record at this tournament is more than encouraging. Afterall, she beat Watson and Arraubarrena over the past couple of seasons here, and back in 2015 Caroline Wozniacki was sent packing! Strycova has always been a consistent type of player, in that she beats players she should but struggles against the better ones. Still, she’s not getting any younger (32), and she has been disappointing so far this season! We prefer the Moscow born player!
WTA AUSTRALIAN OPEN OFFER — Read carefully: If you have ever paid us for a service - You can get all first round bets for the Australian open for FREE (14 picks). Drop a message to firstname.lastname@example.org. This offer is only available to people who have paid in the past!! - If you would like to join the service it’s €150 per month, or €750 to end of season (November) ————— Don’t underestimate Ekaterina Alexandrova is our message. The 24 year old is a great competitor, and she took Sloane Stephens all the way (0-6 7-6 7-6) at last weeks Sydney. In fact, she had already gotten past a retiring Jo Konta, and their was also a 6-1 6-1 over Stefanie Voegle. Subscribers will know we often bet in matches with Lesya Tsurenko. One of the reasons for that is we believe she’s easy to read, and you can rely on the Ukrainian winning a tournament or two each year. Tsurenko is on a career high rank of 24, and making the recent final of Brisbane was a great start to the season. Skipping last week was a good idea for a player who can only take so much tennis, but the fact is she’s never been particularly good at this tournament. Take Alexandrova with a start, she just needs to avoid tightening like she did against Stephens. Still, that’s the benefit of having a h’cap start!
Hopefully you enjoyed yesterdays two (free) winning premium bets. If you are serious about betting, then you have the option of joining Football PREMIUM for just €250 per month - email@example.com ————— Betis can play some sublime football, but they also have a tendency to lose focus. On that note, the hosts have failed to win any of there last three games, and last weeks loss in Huesca was fully deserved. Despite that we have to take into consideration that Quique Setien’s team are still in the Europa league, and they are also a solid sixth in La-Liga. With regards to team news for the host, Junior and Sydnei where able to train this week and are closing in on a return. It’s really now a question of what the coach decides. Feddal picked up a minor knock in the last round, but he did train and should be available. Other than that, only 8 times played Inui is away on international duty! Los Blancos are actively looking for a new manager, but in the meantime they have appointed B Coach Santiago Solari. To be fair the players responded well for the 42 year old, albeit that was upto last weeks home defeat to Real Sociedad (0-2). And, while Real did win a cup game in midweek, in Spain that usually means a club has a stronger B team than there opponents! The other thing is Real are just 3-2-4 on the road this season, and they have lost to worse teams than Betis (Eibar 3-0, Alaves 1-0, Levante 1-2 and of Sociedad). Add to that the Whites have seven players missing, and most of them are automatic first choice call-ups. For the record, goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is sidelined for a third game in succession. Midfielders Marco Asensio, Lucas (suspended), Toni Kroos and Llorente are out. Their won’t be any Gareth Bale, Mariano or Junior Vinicus in the front line, so the visitors have just one recognised striker available in Karim Benzema. The Verderones tend to raise there game for the big matches, and they have already beaten league leaders Barcelona (3-4) on the road. AC Milan in the Europa league and local rivals FC Sevilla are others who have been made to pay by Quique Setien’s side! Great chance for the Beticos, even tempted to bet on the outright!
