Interesting odds here on the home side, and we certainly want to give them a go. Just two points separate these sides in the league table, and in two previous meetings St Gallen took four points. The first match in this stadium ended 3-2, while the reverse fixture ended 0-0. Both teams have been strengthening squads during the winter break, so we will soon see how that pans out. However, what we can tell you is FCZ warmed up with seven friendlies, and from them they won three against lower league sides. St Gallen played five friendlies and won three against Bielefeld, Hamburg and Altach. The other two were drawn, suggesting the hosts are ready for the second part of the season. There isn’t necessarily a big home advantage in Swiss Super league, but St Gallen have taken more points at home compared to the visitors on the road. Looking at what we have at hand, we believe the visitors are being priced on reputation rather than facts. Our impression is that the hosts are over the odds!
The Kings enter this matchup on the back of 3 consecutive wins at home over the Hawks, Sixers and the Spurs, shooting over 50% from the field over that span. The Rockets are in the midst of a tough road trip that saw them play back to back games at elevation but are thus far 2-1 with the final leg of their 4 game trip at Sacramento tonight. Clint Capela remains out for the visitors and Eric Gordon is questionable. The Kings appear rejuvenated during this homestand, pushing the pace again as they did earlier in the season but they catch a Rockets team on the tail end of a grueling road trip who could also be down an important rotation player in Gordon. Chris Paul's return is a net positive but it does lead to more iso-heavy possessions that slow down play for a team that already plays at the 4th slowest pace in the league. The Rockets can be hit or miss from 3 but regardless, they shoot more 3's than every other team in the league by a wide margin. Tired legs coupled with a Kings defense that is 7th best in the league defending the long ball leads us to believe the under is the only way to bet this!
Despite the cold snap reducing the racing program, we have been ticking along nicely. today we are making three value bets at Market Rasen, and we are giving one away for public use. If you would like to get all our racing bets, we have a couple of places open at €150 per month. For that you receive an average 100-120 bets, and with a ROI of 18.24% you can work it out yourself. In fact, most of you can’t, so lets just say over the past 12 months 100 stake on each runner would have returned a whopping 23,639 ————Beats working? email@example.com ———— MINEELA FIVEO arrives here on the back of two wins. While he’s 5 pounds higher, two of those will be offset by his jockeys increased allowance. Still, he’s an 11 year old, and a couple of these should be too good. SEEMINGLY SO beat EARLOFTHECOTSWOLDS of course and distance, but there are many reasons for believing the form will be reversed. Afterall, the selection made two vital jumping mistakes, and without either of those he would probable have won. Furthermore, he’s ran two good races since, and he’s got scope to improve further. In our opinion, the h’capper has given the Nigel Twiston-Davies runner a nice mark, and he’s three pounds better off with his conqueror for just 1.5L. Last but not least, stable are in good form and that’s a good sign when we have been having adverse weather!
The Heat wrapped up a disastrous 3 game homestand with a 95-88 loss to the shorthanded Pacers on Saturday. They travel to Portland to face a Blazers team that's won 6 of their last 7 games and have been beating opponents handily by an average of 15 points. Rodney Hood is questionable to make his debut with the Blazers after arriving from Cleveland in a trade for Nik Stauskas and Wade Baldwin IV. Goran Dragic and Derrick Jones Jr. remain out for the Heat. Due to a scheduling quirk, the Blazers have played just once in the last 9 days and we expect them to come out fast and look to blitz their slow-starting opponents. The Blazers shooting has really picked up and they face a Heat team that's really struggling to defend the 3 at the moment. The Heat are a bit of an enigma at the moment but they do match up well here in our opinion and should be able to put up their share of points. We see a high scoring game.
The Thunder are coming off a 134-129 loss to the Celtics on Sunday but are in good form overall with 7 wins in their last 8 games. The Magic are still fighting for a playoff spot despite dubious chances but do enter this matchup on a modest 2 game winning streak after dispatching of the Nets 102-89 on Saturday. Jonathon Simmons is questionable for the visitors. The Thunder are playing like one of the top teams in the league but still too much reliant on one player in our opinion. Paul George put up another game-high 37 points against the Celtics but he wasn't too efficient needing 27 shots and shooting just 5 of 16 from beyond the arc. The Magic typically play well in this matchup and even in their loss to the Thunder a week ago, we believe the scoreline of 126-117 was a bit misleading as the game was fairly close much of the way. We'll take the 9.5 point head start.
The Rockets got a statement win at Utah on Saturday, handily beating the Jazz from start to finish 125-98. The Suns are in the midst of a 10 game losing streak but we believe this is a game they will be motivated for. De'Anthony Melton and TJ Warren are out for the hosts. Clint Capela remains out for the visitors. The Suns nearly pulled off a massive upset last time these teams met as the Rockets needed a buzzer beating 3 from Gerald Green for the 104-103 win. With Capela sidelined, Deandre Ayton has a favourable matchup inside and as long as Devin Booker gives good effort here, we believe the Suns have a good chance to win it outright!
The Pistons' disastrous season continued on Saturday as they were unable to hold a 25 point lead against the Clippers in what ended up a 111-101 loss. They draw a tough assignment hosting the 37-15 Nuggets who have won 6 in arow and 8 of their last 9. Gary Harris remains out for the visitors and Jamal Murray is questionable. As difficult as it may be to make a case for the Pistons, it's worth mentioning that they do play well for large stretches before falling apart late. Reggie Jackson in particular has come on strong of late and Ish Smith's return should provide much needed help for the 2nd unit. The Nuggets have a tendency to play down to their competition at times and they're not the most physical of teams. Hosts should be desperate for a win.
Have a second premium bet on us ——— Sassuolo have six points more on the board than Genoa, and we expect them to increase the distance today. Last weekend, the hosts enjoyed a rare away win in Empoli. The difference on the day was putting the ball in the net, with Kouame, Lazovic and Sanabria all taking chances. On evaluating the match we would say the Griffins were around one goal better and two was a bit harsh on the opponents. Have the hosts really improved under the guidance of Cesare Prandelli is a good question, we believe the answer to be no. On the same day Sassuolo were giving Cagliari a 3-0 pasting. With regards to that match, the Neroverdi did a lot more for the game and the three goal difference was a fair reflection of their superiority. We rate the visitors better than a mid table team, and the great thing about them is diversity in attack. This enables 39 year old coach Roberto de Zerbi to make changes when needed. Babacar leading the line should be enough to rattle the Genoa feathers. Stefano Sensi is again available for Sassuolo, and neither manager can really complain about missing players! We won’t be looking further than the more talented Sassuolo winning!
Have it on us — Never know what to expect when Leicester take to the field. On some occasions the Foxes are very disappointing, but on others they show glimpses of what took them to the Championship a couple of seasons back. During the week Leicester travelled to Liverpool has no hopers, but it didn’t stop them coming from a goal down to grab a point. On that occasion Claude Puel set his players up to contain the Reds, and that’s exactly what they did in restricting Juergen Klopp’s men to just three shots on target. The thing with the hosts is they tend to get up for better opposition. For example, Man City were beaten at the King Power, while Chelsea and Everton suffered defeat to the Foxes. The Bubble burst at Manchester United on tuesday evening, and only a fortunate penalty followed by an injury time equaliser spared the Red Devils. To keep a long story short, we are convinced the visitors have been over performing under there new manager, and today they will be made to pay!
No WTA tournaments next week, so we thought we would add todays St Petersburg final for free ———— Clay players tend to do well indoors, and the reason for that is most of the action takes place on the baseline. Still, Kiki Bertens has been around for quite a while, and while she’s 70.25% on clay the fact is her win ration is just 57.58% indoor. That of course suggests the Dutch girl has done really well to make it this far, and with it she’s just reached a career high rank of 8. When we watched Donna Vekic beat Timea Bacsinszky, we actually believed it was superior fitness that won the day. Then followed Veronika Kudermetova, a match which the Croatian dominated after her opponent lost heart. Petra Kvitova looked tired and was easily put away, and Vera Zvonareva is clearly not at the same level has before. With all that said, Vekic still had to stay aggressive and focused. The 21 year old is moving the ball around court better than ever, and her consistency level has improved out of all recognition. Vekic is loving the court, and she looks ready for a big step forward!
MONALEE finished a head in front of ROAD TO RESPECT when they met in here in the Savills chase. BELSHILL was a further 1.25L behind, and unlike with the other pair he was making his seasonal debut. You can imagine that will all those obstacles in the way, a length or two can be easily found . In fact, in our opinion many racing students read too much into winning distances, whereas looking at the whole picture and taking into account odds is more important. At 7/1 we would prefer MONALEE to the other pair, but it’s AL BOUM PHOTO for us. Paul Townsend’s mount won well on his return, and chances are he’s going to improve again this season. And, while he finished behind MONALEE when they met in last seasons ‘’Flogas’’, that was over shorter than here.
Before we begin, we'd just like to point out that while the Super Bowl is perennially one of the most highly anticipated and most watched sporting event in the world, in a betting sense it's just another game and should be treated as such for most people. It's true that limits are much higher for the Super Bowl but this doesn't really apply to most bettors. What we mean is that there are no bonuses handed out for getting the championship game correct- they pay just the same as a Week 4 game, for example. So there is no reason to feel that you must bet more just for the sake of it. We had a very good NFL season for subscribers and there is no need to give away a chunk of profits in the event that this bet doesn't pan out! Furthermore, the Super Bowl always tends to feel like a giant letdown for us with the long layoff and as such, we've generally moved on to other things by now with tennis, football (soccer) and NBA topping the list. If you haven't already, you can go ahead and subscribe to our all year package or pick and choose the sport you're interested in. INQUIRE: ADMIN@BETTING-ANALYST.COM New England is making its 3rd consecutive Super Bowl appearance and Patriots coach Bill Belichick and QB Tom Brady will be looking for their 6th title overall. The Patriots face the Rams led by newcomers Sean McVay and Jared Goff who would be the youngest coach and 2nd youngest QB to win a Super Bowl should they defeat the Patriots. This game will take place at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, a domed environment, in Atlanta, Georgia. Injury reports are clean for both sides. For as long as Bill Belichick has coached New Englands, it's always been about matchups and Belichick always looks to exploit perceived weaknesses on the other side. Against the Chiefs, Belichick relied on a power running game in the 1st half against a porous run defense and really looked to control the tempo early. This time around we see a much more pass oriented gameplan as the Rams' run defense improved late into the season and their star duo of Aaron Donald and Ndamukong Suh should make runs up the middle difficult. We expect more James White than Sony Michel similar to the divisional round game against the Chargers where the Patriots made heavy use White catching passes out of the backfield. On the other side, the Rams had one of the top offenses in the league but one noticeable difference was Jared Goff's play on the road which was significantly worse than at home. Of course, Goff will be at a neutral venue but we believe the domed environment will really play into his favour and give the young quarterback much more confidence to make the throws. We have no doubts that offensive genius Sean McVay has a fully loaded script for Goff and there should be much more available to him than against the Saints which was difficult due to the loudness of the stadium. The Patriots didn't start too well in the past two Super Bowls and we believe Belichick will look to a more aggressive approach this time around and utilize tempo to keep the dangerous Rams' DL off balance. Being the Super Bowl, we can always expect trick plays by both sides but with two brilliant minds on the sidelines, it's likely the success rate of these plays are high and we see them turn into explosive plays and/or quick scores. For the record, we do like the Rams as outsiders here and we would encourage a bet at +3 or the ML for those inclined to want to root for a side. However, we see the most value in the total and we believe there's a good chance we see a shootout! Over!
