Ohio enters this matchup at 5-6 on the year and and a lot on the line just 1 win short of the requisite 6 for bowl eligibility. On the other side, Akron should be motivated for this game as well albeit for different reasons as they are the only team left in FBS without a win at 0-11 with just this one game remaining. There were some positive signs from Akron last week as they nearly pulled off an upset over Miami (OH), losing 20-17. The Zips' defense showed marked improvement and as long as they can maintain that same intensity, they should limit the scoring chances for the RedHawks somewhat. The RedHawks are more than content to keep it on the ground where the Zips give up chunk plays but keep the explosive plays and quick scores to a minimum. On the other side, Ohio creates good havoc and pressure that should limit any meaningful chances of the hosts.
PREMIUM FOOTBALL PICK - A nice weekend, lets build on that ! — Want in on PREMIUM?, we have three football bets today! —— firstname.lastname@example.org ———— We can’t see anything to justify these odds. While Aston Villa have home advantage, they are just 2-2-2 at Villa Park. Those wins against Brighton and Everton where against two moderate travellers, and Bournemouth managed to win here. We should also point out they have 4 points less on the board than todays visitor! Newcastle are doing much better than most pundits anticipated, and that’s because they are difficult to play. Prior to the international break Steve Bruce’s men won in West Ham, and they followed that with another over Bournemouth. The Magpies have also beaten Manchester United, and proof of their ability to travel was the win in Tottenham (0-1). Jack Grealish is set to skipper Aston Villa after four weeks out with a calf injury. Goalkeeper Tom Heaton is also likely to return after missing the defeat to Wolves. Defenders Bjorn Engels and Matt Targett have recovered from knocks, but winger Jota (hernia) and striker Keinan Davis (hamstring) are not available. Newcastle hope Ciaran Clark is passed fit to face his former club. Skipper Jamaal Lascelles is ruled out until the new year. Florian Lejeuene and Fabian Schar are back in training and could provide the defensive cavalry, but Sean Longstaff completes a three-game ban. Matt Ritchie is still out with longstanding ankle trouble. Confidence is growing in the Newcastle camp, and Bruce is certainly getting the best out of hard working Almiron and Joelinton. More of the same should suffice, and we can include the draw!

Today looks fantastic, and we are going for a record 6 bets!! — This is one, you want the others 150 per month or 1200 per year will get all — email@example.com ———THE NEWEST ONE is from a good family, and he made a fair enough debut. However, that was in a bumper, and he’s got to prove himself over hurdles. The one to be on is ROCK ON TIGER, and now for the reasons why. The grey is obviously well regarded (odds in races to date), and he made a very nice debut over hurdles. With regards to that race, he could only be rated 113. Nevertheless, he gave the impression that their was more to come, and the jockey who knows him best is back and taking 3 pounds off!
Two struggling teams face off as the 5-12 Bulls host the 6-11 Trail Blazers. The Bulls picked up a much needed win on Saturday, defeating the Hornets 116-115. The Trail Blazers have really struggled on their current road trip with just 1 win in 5 games. Otto Porter, Luke Kornet and Cristiano Felicio all remain for the hosts. For the visitors, Hassan Whiteside is probable. Zach Collins and Jusuf Nurkic remain out. The Blazers have no identity right now and picking up Carmelo Anthony shows just how desperate this team is. The Blazers' lack of wing depth bodes well for the Bulls who have struggled defending wings all season due to their poor rotation. The Bulls are actually decent perimeter defenders which the Blazers do the bulk of their scoring from and while the pick and roll is a bit of an issue for the hosts, we believe it's not enough to warrant the visitors being favoured in this situation. Whiteside should have some success but the Bulls' balanced scoring and depth should be enough to get the home win!
The Timberwolves enter this matchup at 8-8 on the season but have struggled a bit with losses in 4 out of their last 5 games. The Hawks sit at 4-12 on the year and are in the midst of a 6 game losing streak. Kevin Huerter and John Collins remain out for the Hawks and Cam Reddish is questionable. For the Timberwolves, Jake Layman is out, Shabazz Napier is doubtful and Josh Okogie is questionable. While the Twolves may be a bit shorthanded, we're not overly concerned with Karl-Anthony Towns in the lineup. The Hawks are missing 2 key rotation players and Reddish would be a significant absence as well. The Hawks simply can't defend much with their roster and Trae Young is being asked to do too much. Visitors to cover this small spread!
The Ravens are surging with 6 wins in a row and enter this matchup at 8-2, holding the 2nd seed in the AFC. On the other side, the Rams have struggled to duplicate their success from a season ago but the defending NFC Champions have won 3 of their last 4. For the Ravens, DT Michael Pierce is doubtful for this game. WR Chris Moore, G Ben Powers and OT Ronnie Stanley are all listed as questionable. For the Rams, OT Rob Havenstein and DB Darious Williams have both been ruled out for this game. LB Natrez Patrick and WR Robert Woods are questionable. The Ravens have two high profile wins this month, beating both New England and Houston but it should be mentioned that both games took place in Baltimore and we believe QB Lamar Jackson still has some things to prove on the road. The Rams look to have figured out some things on their offensive line and the missings for the visitors are much more significant. Hosts catching over a field goal is a must bet for us!
Syndicate bet - Why not get them all by joining our top (paid) service. Time to get serious? - firstname.lastname@example.org ————Sheffield United are prepared like an army unit. Prior to games starting (and at half time), the players are sent through a few minutes of vigorous warm up. Whatever your thoughts on this process, Chris Wilder has a well drilled squad. The Blades would be fifth in the table starting week 13, who would have imagine that!! Being analytical, the most significant factor for this teams success is how they defend, only a late goalkeeping error cost them against Liverpool! With that said, Dean Henderson has been absolutely fantastic. The hosts come into this on the back of five unbeaten, and just watching the team it’s hard to imagine them being intimidated by anyone! In the last round, the Blades came from a goal down to draw in Tottenham (1-1). Their last two home games against Burnley (3-0) and Arsenal (1-0) ended in impressive wins. Furthermore, they have drawn in Chelsea and won at Everton. Things really couldn’t be much better with this season promoted team!! We have mixed sentiments about Manchester United, but hard facts tell us they are off the pace. Whether Solskjaer can turn things around remain to be seen, and coming here is going to be very tough for the visitors. Believe what you have been watching, not the hype machine
PREMIUM PICK - Ready to make some big money to pay for christmas? - lets get going email@example.com ————— The season started really well for Vitesse, but more recently things haven’t been going well. In fact, coming into this the Vita’s lost three games, and that was against average clubs. For the record, Groningen defeated them 1-2 in the last round, and prior to that was Emmen (2-1) and Den Haag (0-2). Also, take into consideration they where also thrashed by PSV 5-0, and for us that current 5th place in the table means little! Sparta haven’t won in 4, and in the last round we felt they blew an opportunity against Heerenveen. On that occasion they took an early lead, but two goals in six minutes showed a lack of concentration! Nevertheless, despite the Rotterdam outfit managing just one point from their last four games, that draw against PSV (2-2) was a good one. The three defeats where all marginal, and they during the season they have beaten Venlo (4-1), Waalwijk (4-1) and Twente (2-1) at home! Hosts won’t have suspended Adil Auassar, but other than that they are good to go! Vitesse on the other hand are without Tannane, Eli Dasa, Gong and Musonda. Dicko and Foor are others who need to prove their fitness! We like team news, and even more importantly the odds are nicely stacked!
PREMIUM TIP - Want todays 4 picks, get in touch before 12.00 and we will give the other 3 for FREE (firstname.lastname@example.org) ———This is taking a punt, but i’m very keen to try a bet on ONEIDA TRIBE. Tabatha Worsley will give the 10 year old a good ride, and he clearly likes the ground to be testing. He will also benefit from having had a run this season, and best of all is the weight he’s getting from the principals. Plenty of question marks against the others, so why not try in this small field!
PREMIUM NFL PICK - Want more, subscribe to US Premium, get in touch for a great deal - email@example.com ---------The Steelers enter this matchup at 5-5 on the season but saw their 4 game winning streak come to an end last week in the controversial 21-7 loss to the Browns that saw Cleveland player Myles Garrett attack the Steelers' QB with a helmet and subsequently garner an indefinite suspension. Tonight, they host the winless Bengals who sit at 0-10 on the year in head coach Zac Taylor's first year at the helm. For the Bengals, WR AJ Green and TE Drew Sample have both been ruled out for this game. WR Stanley Morgan and WR Auden Tate are both listed as questionable. For the Steelers, WR JuJu Smith-Schuster and RB James Conner have both been ruled out for this game. CB Artie Burns is listed as doubtful. C Maurkice Pouncey will miss this game as he serves his suspension. WR Diontae Johnson is expected back. The stars seem to be aligning for the Bengals to perhaps get their first win of the year. Last week's melee has cost the Steelers their top offensive lineman and they have been decimated by injuries as well with Conner and Smith-Schuster both sidelined. On the other side, the Bengals are getting healthy at the right time with their entire defensive line intact with only one reserve out and they did extremely well against the run last week. Bengals RB Joe Mixon appears to finally be getting into a groove and LT Cordy Glenn is finally expected to make his debut tonight. While QB Ryan Finley is still very green, Steelers' QB Mason Rudolph has been horrific at best so we don't see all that much difference between the two. The Steelers will be in a hostile environment against a team desperate for a win and it's hard to imagine the visitors winning this by a touchdown. We like the hosts' chances of picking up their first win of the year but for the sake of this bet, we'll play it safe with the head start!
The Bears enter this matchup at 4-6 on the year and are in freefall with losses in 5 out of their last 6 games after last week's disappointing 17-7 defeat to the Rams. The Giants sit at 2-8 on the season and have lost 6 straight coming into this game. For the Bears, QB Mitchell Trubisky is expected to start after being benched late in last week's game against the Rams. TE Adam Shaheen and LB Danny Trevathan have both been ruled out for this game. LB Isaiah Irving is listed as questionable. For the Giants, TE Rhett Ellison and TE Evan Engram have both been ruled out for this game. OT Nate Solder, CB Janoris Jenkins and WR Sterling Shepard are all expected back for this game. Trubisky has struggled all season but he catches a break against one of the worst defenses in the league and we believe this will be a last stand of sorts for him after getting benched last week. On the other side, Giants QB Daniel Jones gets back his top receiver in Shepard and the Bears' run defense has struggled since DT Akiem Hicks went down in Week 6 which bodes well for Giants' RB Saquon Barkley who should have a big night on the ground. We expect points for both sides!
The Falcons enter this matchup at 3-7 and whilst it's a lost year despite high expectations, they have managed back to back victories over divisional opponents to salvage some dignity. The Buccaneers have an identical 3-7 record and their outlook isn't much better as they've lost 5 of their last 6 games. For the Falcons, RB Devonta Freeman, TE Austin Hooper and S Kemal Ishmael have all been ruled out for this game. CB Kendall Sheffield, DE John Cmominsky and DE Takkarist McKinley are all listed as questionable. For the Buccaneers, LB Anthony Nelson and CB MJ Stewart have both been ruled out for this game. LB Carl Nassib is listed as questionable. The Falcons' defense has shown marked improvement in recent weeks, set into motion when head coach Dan Quinn stepped down from defensive play-calling duties. Nevertheless, this is still a bottom tier pass defense as the talent isn't there and while the effort level has been better, they face one of the top receiving corps in the league. Bucs QB Jameis Winston has been unreliable but the Falcons don't do much to generate a pass rush and we expect a more or less mistake-free game from Winston given the favourable circumstances. On the other side, Falcons QB Matt Ryan looks to be fully healthy and faces a poor Buccaneers' secondary that ranks as one of the worst units in the league. With Hooper sidelined, we expect a much more explosive passing game and with Falcons' offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter facing his former team, we expect both sides to look to run it up. We can't see anything but a shootout here!
