here is my preview: http://bettingadvice.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=13759
Regensburg v W. Burghausen 1 @2.00 Gamebookers my 3rd pick.
Burghausen plays pretty bad, and especially away from home, Regensburg is in good form and at home I give them a good chance to beat poor Burghausen.
- 11th place, 19 points in league.
- 5 wins, 4 draws, 5 lost.
- 21 goals scored, 20 conceded.
SV Wacker Burghausen:
- 13th place, 16 points in league.
- 4 wins, 4 draws, 6 lost.
- 18 goals scored, 19 conceded.
Of the last 5 matches Regensburg results are: 3 wins, 0 draws, 2 lost. (15 goals scored, 10 conceded).
Of the last 5 matches Wacker Burghausen results are: 1 win, 2 draws, 2 lost. (7 goals scored, 8 conceded).
Biathlon Relay 4 x 6km - Women (Kontiolahti/FIN)
Russia to Win @ 4,00(Betinternet)
OK...my pick for today is Sittard vs. Excelsior...i simply adore Sittard, they cant win a single game, plus they get minimum 3 goals per game (how cant u just love them?!) :lol: :lol: ...this team always loses, but this time they play agains Excelsior which is one of the best teams in holland 2...last week they won the city derby against sparta...they r on a very hot roll, so poor fortuna sittard doesnt stand a chance (they r the weakest team i know)...usually any game against sittard is a banker...a few weeks ago i took top oss at sittard, the stakes were 2.8...it was a piece of cake, so thats why i choose sittard every friday...OK here r the real facts: Excelsor really need these 3 points so they can keep up up wit helmond, they r 3 points the leader...so wit sittard they should easly get the whole 3 points...sittard's defence is one of the worst defences in the league 12 given 38 received...and excelsior has 25 given and only 12 conceived (BEST DEFENCE OF THE LEAGUE)...i think excelsior will smash sittard, im almost sure they will............SO MY PICK IS AWAY WIN 1.7 AT GAMEBOOKERS.
So here is my 2nd pick:
Seattle SuperSonics - Indiana Pacers (-1,5) 2 @ Pinnacle Odd: 1,95
So from one side we have Sonics team, that relies on play of Rashard Lewis and Flip Murray, although this latter one is in coach's doghouse right now thanks to his lach of intensity on the defensive end. Murray should be covered by Artest and Lewis or another weapon, Radmanovic, will be covered by Al Harrington.
As for the Pacers, they have helluva defense, and in offense they rely on Artest and Jermaine O'Neal. There is no one who can stop anyone of them, and also Sonics team will have lot of problems on the boards and in the paint.
Yes, Pacers team an be a little bit tired, cause they are now playing many games on the West Coast trip, but they're simple better and should shut Sonics team completely, and after last loss in overtime they have to gain some win, cause they don't want to fight for 2-3 record on this trip in Sacramento in next game.
Odds: 2.05 @ Pointbet
Porto as usual has not disappointed any of the pundits this season, romping through the domestic league with no one capable of stopping them. Porto is always a good bet, given their quality and attacking football. And it is always reassuring that they managed to hold on to all their key players for this season. Now they face a Maritimo side codemned to mediocrity always and should be glad to stay alive in the top division.
When Porto plays anyone with odds of 1.80+, it is always value. Given their consistency and the gulf in class right now in the league. Yes, even if it is Benfica/Lisbon v Porto. The top 2 competitors have somehow pettered out of serious competition due to lack of quality players. For the previous 6 meetings in the league, they stats stands at 5/0/1 in favour of Porto. And I do not expect this trend to change and fully expect Porto to cruise pass such mediocre opposition. Anything less than a win here for Porto, it is an upset...at least in my eyes it is.
My pick of the day is Marseille-Monaco away win 2.7 at Will Hill
At first I think Monaco is now one of the best team in Europe and whats more inportand in good form.
Marseille is wery poor in midelfild line,and if Drogba score thats will hapend with some long boll but J think thats not hapend,Monaco is too good team to loose against Olimpic M.
Olympique Marseille - AS Monaco DRAW @ 3.1 @ Betinternet
Monaco is a better team at the moment, but they are playing away.. Marseille lost last two home games, and this is clearly not their level.. So i give the advantage to Monaco.. but because of the fact that i dont beleive in Marseille loosing 3 in a row i go for a draw in this match...
the main reason however.. is that Marseille didnt have a draw in 21 straight league games.. it is time now :wink: [/b]
Well, draw was also my choice, zik013 was faster, so I go for this:
Marseille - Monaco X/X HT/FT @ 4.25 Gamebookers
First I must say this is not "all or nothing" attempt, I really believe that this will be one boring, low scoring game, and I will have some real money on this bet.
Eintracht Trier v KarlsruherSC TIP: 2 ODDS: 2.70 @ Gamebookers
These odds are just too high in my oppinion.
Eintracht is the last team in the 2nd German League and they have some of the worst stats in this league:
* 8 games since they won a game home
* 5 consecutive defeats
* they have the worst conceede rate
* 2.07 goals conceeded per game
Really bad performances for this team, and I don't see the horizons of change rising for them later on today...
KarlsruherSC is a mid position team.
* they have 3 wins and a draw out of 7 games played away
they're not an excellent team, but still I think these are excellent odds for an away win later on !
My pick for upcoming night: NBA Orlando vs San Antonio take San Antonio with handicap -6.5points @1.91 from Betandwin
read analyse: www.nbatip.com
Hi everybody !
germany 2 div today !
Duisburg - FC Erzgebirge :arrow: under 2.5
2.23 at pinnacle
2 germany 2 div team who doesn't score many times..
duisburg have more than 57 % of under at home
C Erzgebirge, more than 71 %
The number of goals average for the most recent games involving both
these teams is 2.33 (28 goals in 12 games), the season average being
2.39 (67 goals in 28 games).
i know it is stats but i love stats... :oops:
Fortuna Sittard - Excelsior Rotterdam - take Half-time/Full-time 2/2 @2.75 at betandwin
At first glance it's a good team away to weak.
Looking closer you will actually find that its best Away team 6/1/1 away to worst home team 0/2/5 and there is no way Excelsior will lose this. Not only that but Excelsior has conceded the least goals in the leage home or away.
Standard Liege - Club Brugge x @ 3.2 Gamebookers
This is a derby, and derbies often finish equal. This wasn't the case last week, when only Fenerbahce - Besiktas ended in a draw. And there were a lot of derbies: Chelsea - Manchester, Juventus - Inter, Ajax - Feyenoord and so on.
Another reason is that this is a friday game. And friday games also are often draws. I don't really have statistics, but from what I saw, this is the tendency.
Now to some statistics: 2nd place plays at home against 4th place. Some of the best offensives in the league, both teams have scored 28 goals. Again, Liege haven't drawn at home this season while Brugge only have 7 points from away matches. I am very suprised with the position Liege holds in the league, and I think they are surprised too. So it's time for them to lose some points. And this looks like the perfect time to start.
today's pick is
Eintracht Trier - Karlsruhe
1st half/2nd half DRAW-AWAY (X/2)5.60@expekt
this time i will take a very risky bet..
but i think it can be very possible after statistics! ? ? ? ;)
here's my thoughts.
eintracht trier has lost thier last 5 games and karslruhe is in a winning row. trier has lost every match that they conceded the first goal.
both teams have conceded goals more @ 1st half but karlsruhe scored 75% of their goals 2nd half.
i think first half we see a draw then an away win.
i know it's risky but sometimes you need take this risk to have more fun, huh? ;)
NBL - Hunter Pirates v New Zealand Breakers(-7.5pt hcp)
@ 1.90 (Centrebet)
Pirates are last whilst the Breakers are 2nd last.
Reasons to back the Breakers:
1. Are more competitive week in week out than the Pirates.
2. Signed 25 yr old US import Mike Chappell whom was a standout NBL
player with Canberra Cannons (now defunct) averaging 21.3pts per
game in 21 matches.
3. Will be on a high after their good performance against second
placed Wollongong Hawks (93-89 loss) in their last game.
SM-league, Ilves-Saipa, 1, Globet 1.6
Ilves, currently 7:th in the table, is a different team than last year when they were the poorest team in the whole league. This year they have better squad and better attitude. They have 8-3-3 home record. Saipa is 12:th in the league and is a poor away team: 2-1-11. This year both meetings were home wins (Ilves 5-3 and Saipa 2-1). Ilves played yesterday (lost 3-0 to Jyp) and Saipa rested. This is an advantage to Saipa, but I think that yesterdays loss will make Ilves to concentrate to this game even harder. In their previous home game they beat Jokerit, one of the top teams, 3-0.
My second pick of the contest will be from the WC U20 too.
Match: Egypt : Japan
Date: 05.12.03, 20:30 hrs.
Referee: ARCHUNDIA Benito (MEX)
Today, we have again a Japan's match, this time with Egypt, who has performed well in the first stage of the championship until now. Colombia had edged an entertaining goalless draw in Egypt’s opening fixture.They have beaten England (who came here without stars like Rooney) with a goal scored in the 90 minute. They play good, that's for sure. And in the second game, they had the aid of their supporters, who were in a big number in the stadium.
"The fans made us want to win. They should come again and this time, I promise I will be focused.” said their star, midfielder Hosni Abd Rabo.
“We will be here, in the same seats on Friday, to support them against Japan.” -the fans are saying.
Egypt's goalkeepers have not conceded a goal in 272 minutes.
On the other hand, we have Japan, who after a 1-0 victory over England, were defeated by an impressive Colombia, 4-1. Today, I expect that the two young strikers Yutaro Abe and Daisuke Sakata will perform well and they will grab victory. Japan will be very motivated, they know winning is their only option for a qualification in the second round of the championships.
So, my pick is:
Egypt v Japan 2.40 3.00 2.65 2@gamebookers
Win Asians 05 Dec 03 19:00 Win
1.95 Olympic Lyon v Metz 0:1 1/2 1.85
My pick : Lyon win @ 1.95 gamebookers
Lyon is chasing amazing Monaco in the first place and today has an easy match that has to get the three points. The win is the only satisfiing result here as Metz is a medium quality team comparing with Lyon. Also, Monaco playing away a hard match with Marseille today and a probable draw or loss will give Lyon(if win) the advantage to come closer to Monaco. I see an easy win win of Lyon that is why I am taking the handicap. Also , value is fine.
My pick: France, Lyon - Metz 1 @ 1.40 (globet)
The defending champions Lyon are playing at home to lowet club Metz, as current league leaders Monaco have a tough game away to Olympic M.
I see here a change for Lyon to cut down the distance to the top spot, and I think they will not miss it. Besides, a win today will increase their morale for the next week crutual CL game.
Hello guys. After a long period of being "away", it's about time to try my luck again. What i have to mention is that i will be away from betting for a month or something like that, because recently i wasn't in possition to deliver the goods. So, be carefull with my picks... I am still watching all my favorite leagues (Argentina, Denmark, Greece), alway keeping an eye on major leagues and lately i check the Mexican championship.
Anyway, i start today and i hope i will be able to finish the competition. So, i begin with tonite's argentinian game:
Independiente-Atletico Rafaela X2
1.60 @ Gamebookers
Well, the hosts have serious problems: They come from 10 games without a win, the players r unpaid, the president just gives promises cause ther r no money. The coach asked half team to be replaced, already has fought with some players and already has announced that he doesn't want for the new season seven or eight of them. At the same time, the fans don't want him and recently some of them were outside the stadium to ask from him to leave!
Tonite the coach Osvaldo Sosa will make several changes, while important Franco is injured.
On the other hand don't imagine that Atletico Rafaela is... Real Madrid. The team stands last at the "descenco" table, since they haven't won for some games now (i am at home, it's not easy to check now, but i think it's ten games too). They also haven't won at last six away games but they r willing to fight till the end for some valuable points. The veteran keeper Miguel Angel Comizzo has told that he's leaving the club after the end of the tournament (he had problems with fans from Day 1), but he will play tonite. If i remember well, there rnt major problems for the visitors.
Oh, forgot to mention that the game is not played at Avellaneda (where Independiente's stadium is originally located), but at Quilmes because the team is suspended (this is the second and last round) for troubles caused by their fans.
I hope the above r enough. Don't concider this as the "banker of the day", it's just a good option for those who dare and a good value bet.
Egypt v Japan 1 @ 2.40 @ gamebookers
Egypt can win this or draw to qualify but something is for sure that they wont concede any goals with this Sheriff guy before the net
29.11.03 17:45 Dubai COL - EGY 0:0
02.12.03 17:45 Dubai ENG - EGY 0:1
i think these scores are a good projection of what is to come whilst colombia beating japan 1-4 i see no reason why egypt shouldnt do the same . odds @ 2.40 are pretty tempting for this game with around 10.000 fans in the stadium probably chanting for Egypt
Colombia 2 1 1 0 4 1 3 4
Egypt 2 1 1 0 1 0 1 4
Japan 2 1 0 1 2 4 -2 3
England 2 0 0 2 0 2 -2 0
good luck to all
My pick of the day::::::::>
Denver Nuggets(-5) - Golden State Warriors............1(1.93@ PinnacleSports)
Besides team colors(from ugly brown to light-blue), Denver Nuggets changed their attitude towards the game.
The Nuggets are playing the greatest season in the last 10 years. Finally they have a young talented team, led by the greatest talent in the NBA, Carmelo Anthony(18.3 PPG,6.70 REB, 3.10 ASSISTS). They also have Andre Miller, who has finally proven his worth, and is having 15.2 PPG this season.Also Nene Hilario,on fire in the last 5 games. Denver is among the hottest NBA teams at the moment. If they improve their defense a bit, and away performance, they could be a big surprise this season, and maybe even fight for west semifinals. But there's a long way until then.
According to latest forms of these teams, Denver has an obvious advantage.
Denver Nuggets are on top of the strongest NBA division(IMO), Midwest, with 12-6, and 5 consecutive wins.
Among that 5 wins they have beaten Golden State Warriors on their ground a few days ago(117-109). And Denver had a quite of mediocre away performance so far. So that means they really got the Warriors game, and Warriors' defence has no cure for Lenard(scored 38 points), Nene, Anthony, etc...
Denver is 8-1 at home(5 consecutive victories)
Golden State is 1-4 away
Anything but a huge handicap win for the Nuggets and OVER 190 points would be a big surprise here.
Denver handicap WIN.
MSV Duisburg- Aue 1 (1,70) @Betandwin
Duisburg is very strong this season. The victory in the cup at Regensburg will give them more self condidence. With a victory agianst Aus, Duisburg is in the race for promotion.
Aue was promoted in the summer. At home, they are very strong, but on the road, they have more fear than courage.
My pick number 4:
FIFA World Youth Championship (U/20):
PARAGUAY - GERMANY 2 2,10 Centrebet. 50%.
All the four teams in their group have 3 points so the winner of this game is through to next round. Germany has Kneissl and Huth from Chelsea in their squad and so they have more experience about high level football than paraguayan youngsters.
Pardubice is in an good form,they win last 10 matches,Znojmo is a good home team but away they is not so good :wink:
I see essentially two bets today in Sweden that stand out. And of couse Västerås who'll win their bandy game, but that price is low and not valid here(even if it's above 1,30).
But Bofors-Rögle in the Swedish hockey has a decent price for a home win. Ladbrokes offers 2,00 on Bofors and that's a bet.
Bofors comes of 4 losses, 4 bad losses and they have problems scoring. Their first-choice goalie is in Färjestad on loan.
Both teams are in the chase for a top four place which means semi-promotion(at least a small chance for promotion) and the struggle for those 4 spots are fierce.
So why pick Bofors with 4 losses and poor game?
Simple, because they have to go to work here. It's the end of the line, no more saftey nets, no more screwups. From here it's only hard grinding work that will do it for Bofors and that is all they've talked about over the last two days so I have a pretty good feeling they will manage to beat down Rögle.
Also two good youngsters from Färjestad has joined the team for this game, it always helps to get some help from the bigger cousin :)
Marseille (0) - Monaco (0) - 1 @ 1.83 (Pointbet)
Monaco is in much better form than Marseille lately, but that doesn't mean they will win this one too. Marseille lost last two games at home and both were against top teams (1:4 Lyon, 0:1 PSG) and I don't think they can lose the third big home game in a row too. Marseille has always been very good at home and I believe that it's been enough of giving points to title contenders at Velodrome... Monaco won only one game (which was played in Monaco) against Marseille in last 14 matches and are without win in Marseille for a long time!
I don't gave guts to take the clear home win, but I am satisfied with this handicap bet also!
Boavista Porto - Moreirense FC
Boavista currently are not playing good in there home games (2-3-1) not impressive!!
They played agents strong teems in there home like Porto (0-1), Belenenses Lisbon ( 1-1) , Benfica Lisbon (0-0), Nacional Funchal from Madeira (2-1).
Now its time to win and collect some valuable points there opponents are week in away games scouring 4 goals and conceding 10 losing 4 of there last 6 games
There is a big deferent’s between the 2 teems in every thing but the problem is that boavista are not scoring goals and I hope this will change in today’s game
I see boavista going for the win and scoring 2 to 3 goals and the visitors will not have a chance to score agents a strong defense like boavista
My number 4 bet will be 1/1 HT/FT boavista for 2.20 www. betandwin.com
Because boavista did not win 1/1 all season and it’s the rite time agents a week teem
Duisburg - Erzebirge Aue Draw @ 3,55 (Centrebet)
At first glance this looks like a sure home win. Aue have been
really bad at away from home with record (1-1-5 4-9).
We have to notice that Duisburg played a DFB Pokal(German Cup) match
on Tuesday against Regensburg at away. The decision went on penalty
shootout which Duisburg won 4-2. I'm sure this wasn't the exact plan
for Duisburg and now they are a bit tired for sure. They have also
some troubles with player missings. Markus Kurth, Peter Peschel and
Steven Tweed should be out. Rob Maas and Josef Ivanovic are doubtful
at the moment and their match-fitness will be verified later.
I think Duisburg would be happy with a draw here.
Teams have scored just about 1 goal in last 6 games both and allowed
the same in average and allowed same. Duisburg's record against Aue
is quite good with 8-3-3 but same thing thing as above.
Teams haven't met for a while as Erzgebirge have been playing in
Probable squads for the match:
Duisburg: 1 Langerbein - 14 El Kasmi, 3 Drsek, 12 Oswald, 5 Hirsch -
11 Wolters, 10 Maas?, 24 Caca, 6 Keidel - 9 Spizak, 15 Ahanfouf
Erzgebirge: 21 Hahnel - 2 Krasselt, 6 Emmerich, 11 Jendrossek - 15
F. Berger, 7 Kurth, 5 Heidrich, 19 Rehm - 16 Toppmöller - 14
Curri, 10 Shubitidze...(source kicker.de)
Friday is a typical draw day in 2.Bundesliga. It's always a good
idea to bet on 1-1 ;)
Recommended bet: Draw @ 3,55 with low low/medium stake (2-4/10)
Helmond Vs. Heracles :arrow: 2 :arrow: 3.65@Centrebet
Read my prediction here:
St Lüttich-FC Brugge 1 @ 2.2 by Interwetten
I take Standard Lüttich to continue their good form. From their last 6 games they have gained 16 points, being very strong at home. Brugge aren't as good this season, plus playing in the Champions League looks likely to take it's toll against an in form side like Lüttich. Brugge have also lost their lat 3 away games. Good Luck!
MIN Timberwolves v SAC Kings
MIN T'WOLVES (+8.0) @1.91 @Gamebookers
What NBA SPECIALISTS always said about THE T'WOLVES , was that they needed a CENTER !!!
This year they got one...
RASHO went in trade and KANDIMAN entered the team...
If you had asked me 2 years ago than could i say that KANDIMAN WILL BE ONE OF THE BEST CENTER's IN NBA !!!
But now did everything changed.. He shocked all NBA autoritizes...
Anyway , the other side KINGS ; lost some power... Brad Miller is still a positive affect on the team and sure will WEBBER be a big plus later...
They are in big run , and also will play for their 9th win in row (and 11th Straight HOMEWIN )
Probable Starters will be ;
Garnett, Sprewell, Michael Olowokandi, Trenton Hassell , Cassell
Brad Miller, Stojakovic, Vlade Divac, Doug Christie, Mike Bibby
I'm sure that CASSELL won't play like the match in PHOENIX 2 days ago... He played like a superstar in the 4th quarter and if he can do this in any period of any match than will this team be able to win all matches ...
GARNETT without comment a superstar , he won't face much problems..
The first match ended with a OVERTIME win for KINGS in MINNESOTA...
DIVAC made 10 assists and KINGS won the match with their PERFECT 3rd QUARTER play...
http://us.i1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/i/us/sp/v/nba/players/1/3054.jpg #32 FRED HOIBERG
This guy is team's leader for every kind of shooting ;
FG% --->>> F. Hoiberg 50.9
FT% --->>> F. Hoiberg 86.2
3PT% -->>> F. Hoiberg 51.0
Important is " how many minutes will he play against the KINGS ? "
I'm sure that HOIBERG getting 30 minutes will score about 15-20 against such a team like KINGS with his easy empty shooting chances...
I see the +8.0 HANDICAP as a clear bet for T'WOLVES , and i'm also on MIN WIN @4.00 for my real bet...
Let's kick emm all !!!
St Lüttich-FC Brugge 1 @ 2.2 by Interwetten
I take Standard Lüttich to continue their good form. From their last 6 games they have gained 16 points, being very strong at home. Brugge aren't as good this season, plus playing in the Champions League looks likely to take it's toll against an in form side like Lüttich. Brugge have also lost their lat 3 away games. Good Luck!
pick : De Graafschap-Veendam X2 @ 1.93 (gamebookers)
The last two matches of De Graafschap were a poor and disappointing display. For this match they will recover Laval, but André Karnebeek, Yassine Abdellaoui en Dick Kooijman are still doubtfull and Van Wanrooy is out. They are still unbeaten at home but tonight they host a highly motivated Veendam.
Veendam started the competetion weak but in their latest six they maneged thirdteen points and tonight they can win the second period if they win this match.[/b]
NHL time again
This game should start with the make or break record insignia of "Anaheim Mighty Ducks never lost in Atlanta" 3 of 3. That would mean my pick of the day comes here...
I'd take Anaheim to win AWAY vs. Atlanta with Expekt bet of 2.55 value of odds.
Thrashers are thrashing themselves of recent, although they played tough vs. Boston in last game going ahead 3 times, but losing 6-4 in the end. Goalie Nurminen is put on the options list (Dafoe could be back to start) , according to the coach. It's still a new team, while Tampa Bay Lightning, the contenders for the throne in their Division is not a team to be taken lightly. Will Atlanta do anything against the Runners-up Anaheim in their current form?
This said about the home team, the Ducks and Fedorov are coming to town, and I expect the other Golden Oldie (former Red Winger to score again or assist). For their case, goalie Giguere was pulled off last time because they happened to come up against Detroit's offense and lose 7-2. Anaheim's current road record is worthy of only a tie against Wild last Sunday. Giguere is a tough goalie, and he will go for it tonight.
Acknowledgements: Sykora holds the team together, while Sammy Pahlsson likes to step it up and do damages across opponents net.
Stats: Kovalchuk of Atlanta leads with most goals, although he was contained to 1 single assists in a frustrating match vs Boston last time. After him, there's a distant Marc Savard with 9 goals.
Fedorov and Prospal and Sykora combine for 22 goals thus far for Anaheim.
On Power plays they're even,and even if Atlanta has thus far scored mor, they also received more, while Anaheim likes to play certain and move the puck around more. (see above mentioned players).
What I look for and count for in this match: the puck stopping here for Atlanta. The combination between Fedorov, Pahlsson and Sykora, with Vaclav Prospal adding to score sheet with some points. The undefeated factor for Anaheim in Atlanta. If they do to Kovalchuk what Boston did to him, Anaheim wins.
Good luck :)
Eintracht Trier - Karlsruher SC Home win @2.35
My pick of the day is Besiktas to lead Adanaspor first time
Odds 1.30 @Betandwin
First after 2 consecutive draws at home Besiktas will win against last team in league.
Second Besiktas will have very important european game vs Chelsea so they will try to score early goal (and may be even two goals) and then will play practicly with half of their strengths. So for me this is very opportunity.
Again my pick: Besiktas to win first half vs Adanaspor @1.30 in Betandwin
my pick of the day is
standard liege Vs club brugge, standardto win @2.00 at gamebookers
club brugge has shown a surprising inconsistency this year especially on away matches. standard seems able to challenge a high spot on the table and especially at home has shown great potentials. I think that they can go for it against a big opponent.
Well, I am 2-1 in this competition now with a good bet on Toronto yesterday. Not a good day in NHL today, only 4 games, Philly looks good but odds are very low, I have found a play that I am somewhat confident in:
Atlanta Thrashers - Anaheim Mighty Ducks - 1 at 2.17(Pinnacle)
Atlanta is a very good home team, plays with a lot of confidence right now and have a lot of young and fast skaters. On the other hand, Anaheim has a lot of veterans, they are very tired on this long road trip and they are an awful road team(3-6-2), lost their last two in Columbus and Detroit. Odds are pretty good here on home win as bookies look at the fact that Anaheim is 3-0 and never lost in Atlanta, but as some people say: nothing last forever and imo Thrashers will break this little losing streak against the Ducks and win this one somewhat comfortable. Giguere will start for Anaheim and he has been one of the league's biggest disappointments this season after his brilliant play in the 2002-03 playoffs earned him the Conn Smythe Trophy. He has won only four of 17 games, and his 2.74 goals-against average is one of the poorest in the NHL.
Atlanta - Anaheim 4-2
Standard Liège v Club Brugge 2 @ 3.10 Gamebookers
Statistics of personal meeting for last 3 1-3-4 in favour of Brugge. Presently Club Brugge occupies 4 places in Jupiler Leage and lags behind from the leader on 13 points, but from Standard Liege (2 places) on 5 points. So for the fight for high places Brugge needed victory.
San Antonio Spurs – Orlando Magic (+7) 2 @ 1.91 /Centrebet/
I give my pick a little opposite to Moneymaker :)
OK, Orlando is the worst tam in this season, their balance is 1-17. But every streak has its end. Maybe they won’t win tonight, but with 7 points handicap it looks like a quite safe bet.
Spurs have lost 4 last games, in fact their opponents were strong. But generally they have many problems in current seasson, balance 9-10 is not impressive, they aren’t so strong like in former year. The odds on SA are to low in my opinion, they aren’t so big favourite in this game.
Orlando won only one game. But some things indicates that the situation is going better. The last defeats were not so terrible like earlier.
It will be probably a duell between Tim Duncan and Tracy McGready – I bet Tracy will score more points and lead the team to a small deafeat at least and maybe win? If Duncan will have a weaker day, who knows...?
In Spurs Anthony Parker still won’t play and in Orlando Grant Hill.

LITVINOV - PILSEN 2 (2,50) at Gamebookers
Litvinov has got big problems nowadays, they want to get up, but they lost to Vitkovice 5:0 in last round, I think they also change goalies too often, so both goalies then cannot be confident enough for the match. On the other hand Pilsen is going up. They improved their defence and new coach is doing his job perfectly. I think Pilsen will take at least one point from this game. Only one thing which is good for Litvinov is: new good player Kadera (from Vitkovice), but I do not think he can do miracles in his first match for Litvinov.
Tahoma, allow my pick on 6th December as a valid, please!
Pick for 6th Dec:
Which ski jumper(s) will finish in the top 3?
Sigurd Pettersen (NOR) @ 3.00 /B&W/
I am in hurry with this pick, until the qualifications start. I think it is a nice odds on this jumper. He won last competition in Kuusamo. Last year in Trondheim Peterssen finished on 1st and 2nd rank. It indicates, he knows and likes this hill. I don't know what to say more, for me he and Malysz are the bigest favourites of this competition.
And one more thing, I like him for the name, it is just like my: Pettersen - Pitersson :D .
A little comment (request) to Tahoma:
Would be possible to open new topics for next days a little bit earlier? Sometimes there are good odds, but we must be hurry with them.
MSHK SKP ZILINA - SLOVAN BRATISLAVA 2 @ 2.20 Centrebet
It's Slovakian Extraliga. Both teams playing good this time , maybe Zilina have some problems in last games , they go like win - lose - win - lose. Slovan won last 4 games , and their players in good mood now , and want to win 5th game in a row. Of course , it will be hard for them to go to the first place , but they must do some steps for it. That's why , i hope , that Slovan will win today.
Calgary - Minnesota home win 2.3 Expekt
So, calgary will go for his tird win in a row tonight, when they face struggling wild. In last 5 they've scored 1.2 goals and allow 2.2 goals..The Flames won the first matchup of the season, 3-2, in Minnesota on October 21 and the Wild earned a 3-0 victory in Calgary on November 7. Minnesota's win in Calgary was the first in seven road games (1-4-2) against the Flames. Flames are on fire last two games, and I expect them to beat Minnesota tonight. Medium stake.
My best pick for today,
LYON - METZ (Handicap 0-1) Home :arrow: 2.00 @ interwetten
Lyon didn't win last time and now must" win right now.
Metz not strong enough for point or points from Lyon.
Metz also not good for an away team.
Tonight Lyon will win for sure and not just by one goal..

IMO winner of this game will be decide in early period in first half. Lyon is very strong team (possible with Celtic in their mind). Thats why I think that there is no doubt about tonight winners. This is some kind of test and their try to keep victorius spirit. I think this is very important game, mentally, for Olimpic and they will win.
Last info says that Lyon will play with full squad.
My pick for tooday:
Marseille(0) - AS Monaco(0) AWAY 2,0 at GameBookers
Marseille lost last 2 home games and now 5th in Championat.
Marseille very need points but:
- Monaco now in very good form
- next midweek Marseille will play away in ChL against Partizan and must win or draw for playing in UEFA Cup. I think that will be hard game but Marseille have good chances for place in UEFA Cup
- Monaco will also play in ChL, but already have guaranteed place in next round
I think that now for Marseille more important Eurocups and maybe Marseille will not play with strongest squad.
Monaco have more chances to win, but safest pick is Monaco(0)
I see someone already took handicap bet on Pacers so i will take streight win.
SEA Sonics- IND Pacers 2 1.86 GB
Iam also on NBA tonight!
Milwaukee Bucks (+8) at New Jersey (-8), Away win (Milwaukee!) 1.91 GB
I think, considering Nets form and solid performances by Bucks, 8 points advantage should be enough for BUcks. I expect a game like Philly v Chicago yesterday. 7/10.
Marseille v AS Monaco 1 at HT * Centrebet * 3.1
/i was give pass today but.../
I keep betting on Marselle recently, so may as well just go on.
Marselle 0-1 against PSG was a shocker in 90 min. I have to say lose against Real Madrid was not fair result even. They created many -many chanches but bit unlucky with them.
Monaco fligh high but really not sure how much does it count today.
All these and Marselle drawless strike would suggest draw.
Statistics say both team usualy score early though often win by late goal.
Both team often push the game right from the start. Marselle more harder because they are still soure from last minute strike of PSG.
If they lose it could happen in the first half too so let`s try a catch here at HT.
Well, the Calgary bet was taken so I have to go with my second choice pick
Carolina-Montreal 1 2,33 centrebet
First game of home-and-home series. Both have been in reasonable form lately, picking points quite well. Montreal is .5 on the road and Carolina at home is a a bit above that. Carolina have lost only 1 in regulation of the last 9 home games and they forced an overtime against the highflying Predators. But there is one thing that cathces my eye about Hurricanes' homegames: If you exclude the game against Philly when Carolina were outshot 43-23 the shots stats show the following from the latest games(SF-SA): 41-22, 38-25, 37-21, 39-20, 33-22 so in this light they dominate their homegames. Montreal have been constantly outshot on the road and they even managed a victory against the senators when the shots were 40-13 to ottawa. Theodore has been winning the games for them and that's the one doubt I have about this game. I still think that a solid home team like Carolina will be able to find their way around him and edge out the Habs.
Tonights games, grand salami - UNDER 20 goals ----> 1,952 @Pinnacle
Well in my opinion at least 6 out of tonights 8 teams are very, or even extremly defensive minded. I'd be surprised if there are more than 20 goals in total tonight. Philly are of course strong offensivly at home, but they meet a defensive Phoenix. Other than that, I'm not particulary worried that the other teams could produce a bundle of goals tonight. Carolina-Montreal could easily be something like 2-3 goals, the same goes for Calgary-Minnesota. Anaheim got really trashed by Detroit so they will (as always) be extremly defensive minded, and Atlanta have had a bundle of goals against them lately, so I'm pretty sure that coach Hartley will put an emphas on the defense tonight, so I'm going for UNDER here.
TORONTO Raptors(-6.5) VS ATLANTA Hawks(+6.5) firstname.lastname@example.org at Gamebookers
TOR(10-8)has won 4 in a row from the Hawks and 10 of the 11 meetings in the series.The Raptors are on 2-game winning streak(both after trade with CHI,takes D.Marshall and J.Rose from them).In last game vs Boston TOR makes team record scored 17 3-pointers(71% 17 of 24),improving to 6-2 at home.
ATL(6-13)has lost 4 of 5 including 94-105 to MIL who was without two forwards(Thomas,Kukoc).These teams meets second time this season(TOR won at ATL 98-96 after OT on 26th November,Carter scored 43 pts and made winning jumper with 1 sec. left in OT).
NBA NY Knicks+6 1.90 Bet365
NYK are playing away at Portland on their West coast road swing. Portland does have a good home record, but they've only been able to win three games in a row once this season, and are coming off two home wins over New Jersey and Indiana. Sure those losers at Portland are better teams than the Knicks, but Portland is not a strong mental team and this spot will catch the Blazers a bit too self-satisfied. NYK is coming off two losses, and I expect their form to be a bit better coming into this game.
(previous two plays: Utah(ML 3.60) took Houston to OT and lost, but under the pointspread, and Chicago(ML 3.40 ) lost by 1 point away to Philadelphia...so if I would've been smart I would've taken the points, so that's why I'm taking the pointspread today instead of the ML...but I do like the ML @ 3.20)
