PREMIUM BETTING TIP - Want the rest of todays football, €25 — firstname.lastname@example.org ———To be analytical, the performance of Sampdoria in Cagliari was unprofessional. Just has the team now coached by Claudio Ranieri appeared to be coming good, they go and let a two goal lead slip and conceded 3 goals from 69 minutes onwards. During the week they where knocked out of the Cup Italia by the same team, so maybe a down turn in form! Take into consideration La Samp where playing a team that needed to make many personal changes (injuries + suspensions) for both those defeats, it makes their performance even more dubious. From what we witnessed in the second match, Ranieri has big defensive issues! Nothing wrong with what Parma are doing, and 18 points from 14 games is good enough for a 8th place sit. The visitors have drew their last three away games, and one of them was at leader Inter Milan. Even the other draws in Fiorentina and Bologna where worthy efforts, and what about the win over AS Roma? Visitors are without just two players in Karamoh and Inglese. Whereas, Ranieri won’t be able to choose injured players Depaoli, Bereszynski, Bonazzoli, Bertolacci and Barreto! While Parma where defeated in this fixture last season, things have improved since then. At these odds the visitors are wrongly priced, so with the draw included we should certainly make a decent bet!
The Bulls are still without Otto Porter and Chandler Hutchison but Thaddeus Young is expected back. The Heat are without Goran Dragic, Dion Waiters and KZ Okpala. Justise Winslow and Bam Adebayo are questionable. The Bulls play an aggressive defense that's predicated on creating turnovers and as luck would have it, they face the most turnover prone team in the league. The Heat are an excellent defensive team as is and as they are a bit nicked up with injuries at the moment, their offense hasn't been as efficient nor smooth flowing. The Bulls' offensive sets are virtually nonexistant and we don't expect with their horrible coaching for any of that to be fixed against a sound defensive team. This looks like a snoozer to us!
PREMIUM PICK - If you want the other five #nfl premium -- €20/USD $25 -- get in touch email@example.com ------- The Patriots enter this matchup in an increasingly familiar territory as they suffered their 2nd defeat of the season last week against the Texans in a game that wasn't even as close as the 28-22 score would indicate. The fact remains that New England have covered just 1 out of their last 4 games and have shown major issues with explosiveness as QB Tom Brady's decline as a passer has become more and more evident. On the other side, the Chiefs sit at 8-4 on the year but after being hampered by injuries to many key players, including their franchise QB Patrick Mahomes, they've gotten healthy at the right time and enter this matchup having won 3 out of their last 4 games. For the Patriots, DL Byron Cowart and OL Ted Karras have both been ruled out for this game. LB Ja'Whaun Bentley, OL Marcus Cannon, S Patrick Chung, WR Julian Edelman, CB Jason McCourty and WR Mohamed Sanu are all listed as questionable. For the Chiefs, CB Morris Claiborne, CB Rashad Fenton and RB Damien Williams have ball been ruled out. DE Frank Clark and S Jordan Lucas are listed as questionable. Usually we can count on the well-coached Patriots to bounce back following a loss and despite the sparkling 10-2 record, the Patriots are a team with many deep underlying issues. As we've mentioned countless times, Brady is no longer the quarterback of elite status and his arm strength has markedly declined. The Patriots also don't have much of a deep threat anyway and their offense is very limited at the moment without an explosive ground game either. The Chiefs have the vastly superior offense and head coach Andy Reid has shown terrific gameplans in this matchup. Patriots' head coach Bill Belichick is the best there ever was in our opinion but he will have to really work some magic to pull out a victory here against the much superior team. We're comfortable tipping the outright!
For the Bills, OT Ty Nsekhe has been ruled out for this game. For the Ravens, WR Marquise Brown, CB Marlon Humphrey, LB Patrick Onwuasor and WR Seth Roberts are all listed as questionable. The Bills did us a tremendous favour on Thanksgiving winning outright against the Cowboys as touchdown underdogs. This will be another tough matchup against the top team in the AFC in our opinion. The Bills have an excellent pass defense but they've shown to be vulnerable against runs between the tackles. We expect the Ravens to pound the ball with their power run game with RB Mark Ingram and force the Bills to dedicate more players in the box. This should allow the Ravens to choose when to get aggressive with QB Lamar Jackson as the Bills are excellent in pass coverage and dangerous in creating turnovers. The Ravens should keep it conservative and control the flow of the game and their defense should hold up as well against a Bills' offense that lacks explosiveness. We have a hard time seeing points in this one!
The 5-7 Bucs host the 6-6 Colts as both teams make a last gasp effort to get back into playoff contention. For the Buccaneers, OG Alex Cappa, WR Scott Miller, LB Anthony Nelson and RB TJ Logan have all bene ruled out for this game. CB Jamel Dean and CB MJ Stewart are listed as questionable. For the Colts, WR TY Hilton, CB Kenny Moore and PK Adam Vinatieri have all been ruled out. CB Rock Ya-Sin and S Malik Hooker are listed as questionable. The Bucs have the top rush defense in the league but it hardly matters as their secondary is one of the worst and teams simply elect to throw on them. While Hilton will be missed, the Colts get WR Parris Campbell back and with their strong passing game to TEs, we don't expect too much trouble for QB Jacoby Brissett to move the ball down the field with a strong OL protecting him. The Bucs have one of the most dynamic receiving corps in the league and should have success through the air as well against a banged up Colts' secondary. We see a shootout!
FREE PICK (not premium) ————The Bundesliga is it’s usual mess, but great to see Bayern can’t buy success. With regards to this match, all we can say is Köln are playing irresponsibly. The visitors seem to have one tactic only, foul the opposition and stop them playing. It’s horrible to watch, but it’s rewarding to see them struggling at the bottom of the league! Union Berlin are no wonder team, but they are at least playing has a unit. The hosts won their last three at home, and one of them was against league leader Borussia Monchengladbach! Köln have two players suspended, whether that’s a good or bad thing remains to be seen!

Unfortunately, that’s the best we can do for freemium users, we are the only service actually giving away a few of our top picks!! If you are ready to get in on the big stuff and bet like a pro — firstname.lastname@example.org ————— Lazio are in brilliant form ahead of the visit of Juventus. The Eagles are unbeaten at home in the league this season, and they will want to reverse last seasons unlucky (1-2) defeat. On that occasion, the Old lady converted two from three shots on target, whereas the hosts missed some incredible chances. The only stat which is counting against Lazio today is history, with Juvi winning 12 from their last 13 league games in this stadium. Nevertheless, Simone Inzaghi’s team are unbeaten since losing to Inter in september, and with Ciro Immobile they have the most lethal striker in the league. In fact, the 29 year old found the back of the net 17 times in 14 league matches, that’s 7 more than the next best. One of the reasons we fancy the hosts here is because Juventus have ageing strikers. With all due respect, Cristiano Ronaldo (34) and Higuain (31) have seen better days. Add to that the midfield supply chain is short of newly injured playmaker Ramsey, plus Khedira and Douglas Costs. Chiellini continues to be missing from defines, and neither Buffon or Szczesny have been convincing in goal! The Eagles will again be without Lukaku, Berisha, Marusic and Patric, they played just 16 games between them! And, more important, Inzaghi will be able to call on Lucas Leiva. Just everything about the hosts tell us they are ready to lower the colours of The Old Lady!
SYNDICATE BETTING PICK - If you want them all, join our paid service — Get in touch and tell us what you would like, day, week, month, season. Football, racing, US sport ——— email@example.com ————— No love lost in this local Valencia derby!! Los Che needing to win this weeks Champions league match in Ajax to guarantee promotion to the next stage, with that in mind chances are certain players won’t be risked. Traditionally speaking the form book goes out of the window for derby matches, and away teams have a slightly better chance than when they are normally on the road. And, with Levante losing their last game 4-0 in Getafe, a lot of punters will be expecting Valencia to bag the three points! However, we need to take on board that their is just three points difference between these clubs. Add to that the visitors have a big injury list (Kang, Cheryshev, Kongdobia, Guedes, Piccini, Mangala, Sobrino),, and they can’t always be lucky like in last weeks match against Villarreal. The Frogs won their last two matches at home, and one of them was against league leaders Barcelona. If we take into consideration circumstances, and team news we have a good enough reason to support the hosts!
The Rockets recovered from their controversial loss to the Spurs with a statement 119-109 win over the defending champion Raptors on Thursday night. The Suns had been struggling after a good start to the season but have won 2 of their last 3 games and finish out their 4 game road trip in Houston after a 139-132 overtime win over the Pelicans on Thursday. Eric Gordon and Gerald Green remain out for the Rockets. Deandre Ayton remains out on suspension for the Suns and Aron Baynes is doubtful. The Sun are still a much improved defensive team despite their recent struggles and while they are in the bottom third of the league in opponent 3 point percentage, they do well to run them off the line, allowing just over 32 attempts from beyond the arc per game. The Raptors showed some success in defending James Harden and we expect the Suns to copy the formula to limit the most dynamic offensive player in the game. The Suns should use traps and double teams right away in the back court to throw off the Rockets' rhythm and we don't have as much faith in the hosts' other players who aren't nearly as efficient as Harden. The Rockets could come out flat as well after playing a hard and physical game against the Raptors and despite a fast pace, there should be enough defense to stay under this astronomical number!
The Pelicans will miss Derrick Favors with Darius Miller and Zion Williamson both out with long term injuries. Dwight Powell is probable for the Mavericks. The Mavs have dominated the Pelicans in two matchups already this season and have been on a roll with 9 wins in their last 10 games. Meanwhile, the Pelicans are looking to end a 7 game losing skid. Nevertheless, the Mavs have played a grueling schedule over the past few weeks and it's noticeable the decline in their shooting over the last 6 games. While coming off two days rest, we believe this is a prime spot for the hosts to come out a bit slow here. The Pelicans should experiment with defending Luka Doncic with the lengthy Lonzo Ball now that Ball is back healthy as Doncic is the key to the Mavs' offense. The Pelicans have found good rim protection with Jaxson Hayes inside and with a good defensive effort, we believe a win isn't out of reach though we'll gladly take the 9 point head start.
In the Big Ten Title game, Ohio State (12-0) faces off against Wisconsin (10-2) in a rematch of a late October matchup that saw the Buckeyes victorious by a score of 38-7. There are some positives to take away for the Badgers, however as the game was a bit closer than the score would indicate as the Buckeyes only narrowly had a 10-7 advantage as late as the 3rd quarter and pulled away with 4 late touchdowns. The game also took place at Columbus, Ohio and this game will take place at a neutral site, Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana and on turf. It's no secret the Badgers will look to run the ball behind their All-World running back Jonathan Taylor and their dominant offensive line. The Buckeyes showed more than capable of eventually solving the Badgers with their superior athletic talent but a key point of emphasis is the health of their quarterback Justin Fields. Fields suffered a sprained MCL against Penn State two weeks ago and re-injured it last week against Michigan. While Fields hasn't shown much worse for wear, we believe his mobility will be limited and thus limit the effectiveness of the read option and his ability to create plays with his legs. We believe this is enough to warrant a play on the Badgers who can match the Buckeyes physicality in the trenches at least for a while. Fields' throwing ability may be slightly hampered too and we believe that's all that's needed to give the Badgers a chance here. While an outright win might be a bit ambitious, staying within two scores should be achievable!
It's no surprise to see the defending national champions Clemson Tigers playing in the ACC Championship Game. The Tigers returned the bulk of their offensive production, once again had superior talent on the defensive side of the ball and their competition in the continuously weakening ACC was suspect. Apart from a scare in Chapel Hill against North Carolina, the season played out much as anyone expected. For the Virginia Cavaliers, it wasn't quite so simple as Bronco Mendenhall's team was a mediocre 3-2 in conference play after losses to Miami and Louisville. Nevertheless, the Cavaliers rattled off 4 straight wins including a winner-take-all game against Virginia Tech last Saturday to clinch their spot at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina. Few offenses fare well against Clemson but the ones that typically have some success involve mobile quarterbacks. The Cavaliers' senior quarterback Bryce Perkins excelled as a dual threat, throwing nearly 3,000 yards and leading the team with 687 yards and 11 touchdowns rushing. The Cavaliers' offense caught fire down the stretch, amassing 165 points over their last 4 games in large part due to the play of Perkins. While the Tigers destroyed all their opponents with the exception of the Tar Heels, Virginia's aggressive defense may just be the type to cause problems against a Tigers' offense that didn't always look in sync against the likes of Florida State and Louisville with turnover issues. Tigers' QB Trevor Lawrence hasn't looked nearly as good as he looked a season ago and we believe under the circumstances, staying with four touchdowns in a championship game is within reach!
