Pick#5 3/1 +258

Football, Qatari Stars League

Al Gharafa - Al Sailiya

Pick: over3.5
Odds: 2.15
Bookie: Pinnacle

Here I expect offense to dominate the game. Both teams has good offense, both defensivelly aren't trustworthy thus far and both will be keen to win it.
Gharafa overall, potentially, has one of the best attacking lines in league with Sneijder, Weiss, Taremi, there's barely a defense which could stop them, including Sailiya's one. In opening game they created a lot, just finishing let them down. Tonight I expect them to have plenty of moments once again, just hoping for a better finishing as they are way better in that than showed in previous game. If so, Sailiya simply has no class to stop them.
Sailiya meanwhile changed quite a lot during offeason, mainly in foreigners spots, but they brought in Tiberkanine, one of the best scorers from previous season, they added Qatari Ilyas, from whom I didn't expect much, but he delivered in opening game with 2 goals scored and seems like will be great addition. Also there's still Algerian Belhadj, who no matter age, still causes lot of headache to rivals defenses in flangs. I bet it will be very hard for Gharafa to cope with all this. Against Qatar SC they looked simply terrible at defending, especially on counters they've been caught so many times that those conceded 3 goals could easily dualize.
Overall, I simply can't see these teams bein' able to shut each other down defensively, Sailiya simply has no class for that, meanwhile Gharafa is a bit better here, but their defensive shape is horrible and coach still tries to find the solutions, but time will be needed for that. So if efficiency will be on right level, this game can easily bring atleast 4 goals. GL
2-1 pick lost!

Pick #1
Tennis, ATP Masters Toronto
Rafa Nadal - Karen Khachanov
Pick: under 20.5 games
Odds: 2.18
Bookie: Pinnacle

For Rafa Nadal Toronto Masters is one of the missing scalps in his career. He won twice in Montreal but in Toronto he had many early losses including against Dodig in first round, Nishikori or Shapovalov in latst editions too, Now he is in top form and have one of the last chance to achieve it. Field that left is very pleased as todays rival Khachanov and potential finalists Tsitsipas or Anderson are absolutely in his range. Today verys Russian tennis player I don't expect him to have any troubles. In past three matches played against Khachanov Rafa not only won but didn't allow opponent to get even a single set. Also we've seen only a single tiebreak on grass at Wimbledon in 2017. At hard in Toronto Khachanov should get some service games won however I think decent Nadal's defensive skills will result in many early breaks. Also it is worth to mention that this first such big achievement for Khachanov so playing in semifjnal at Masters Series and against should definately result in some pressure and easy unforced errors too. In sum I expect onesided match for Nadal so under 20.5 games at these odds it's very reasonable bet.
76 64 pick lost!

Pick #002 0/0/1
Balance: -100

League: ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE
Match: Fulham vs Crystal Palace
Start time: 11.08.2018., 16:00
Pick: Over 2,75
Odds: 2.21
Bookie: Pinnacle


New season of Premier league and battle of London in first round.
Fulham catches the train to Premier league beating 1:0 Aston Villa but in the meantime shuffle his squad and brought many players (mainly in defensive line) but all of them will not get chance to play today, Mawson and Odoi for sure but Fulham play all his games in Championship as offense minded team so this season they will do the same and with players like Sessegnon, Shurrle and Mitrovic they are sure capable of scoring a few.
On the other side we have Crystal Palace who didn't change so much as Fulham as they bought only Kouyate and Jordan Ayew and they are offensive minded players and is pretty obvious that Crystal Palace will go for goals as they did last season with 100 goals in their games and if we add Fulham's 125 from last season we surely have a recipe for a goal fiesta today.
0-2 pick lost!

Pick No. 1

Huddersfield vs Chelsea

Pick: Huddersfield +0.75 AH
Odds: 2.19
Pinnacle


Probable starting lineups:

Huddersfield:
Lossl; Hadergjonaj, Schindler, Zanka, Kongolo; Mooy, Hogg; Sobhi, Pritchard, Van La Parra; Mounie

Chelsea:
Kepa; Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Luiz, Alonso; Jorginho, Barkley, Fabregas; Willian, Pedro, Morata

I think Huddersfield could stay unbeaten against the former champions. First of all, the home advantage should not be underestimated. But not only that. Huddersfield played very good during the preparation period. They won the last three matches and the opponents were some strong sides. Huddersfield managed to beat French outfit Lyon with 3:1 and Italian side Bologna with 2:1. Last weekend they won 3:0 against the club from Bundesliga Leipzig. Mounie. Diakhaby and Billing scored the goals on that match. The atmosphere in the club is excellent, while the players confidence is high.

Chelsea, meanwhile, lost 0:2 to Manchester City in the FA Community Shield match. Worse, the team didn't look good on that match and were outclassed by the English champions. New manager Maurizio Sarri, who replaced Antonio Conte on the bench, has a tough job to change something quickly. Just to mention, Sarri has never won a major trophy as a manager. In addition, his options are limited for this match. Thibaut Courtois has signed for Real Madrid, while key player Eden Hazard is also a target. The Belgian star, as well as Ngolo Kante and Olivier Giroud, are not 100% ready due to their late World Cup involvement.

As conclusion, I don't think Chelsea will win at John Smith's Stadium. Huddersfield are in good form and the players confidence is high. They are able to stay unbeaten against the Blues. Like on the last match played in May (at Stamford Bridge), that finished with an 1:1 draw. It was a point that have secured Huddersfield's top-flight status for another season, while Chelsea stayed out of the Champions League.
0-3 pick lost!

pick #1 0/0 0
football premier league 15:00
game: Huddersfield - Chelsea
pick: over 2.5
odds: 1.95
bookie: bet365



coach Maurizio Sarri will play his first match in the Premier League as a London Chelsea coach. It won't be easy game if we see pre-season results of Huddersfield. Huddersfield beat Lyon 3:1and less than a week later they defeated Bologna 2:1. At the end of the summer preparations, Huddersfield was beaten by RB Leipzig 3:0.

Chelsea played international cups and they draw 3 times. Last week Chelsea lost 2-0 with MC in community shield. Last season CHelsea won 3-1, but today will difficult predict who win, but I think we can see at least 3 goals.

GL
0-3 pick won!

pick #2 +102

Football
France
Angers - Nimes
Nimes +0.25 Asian
Odds: 1.952 pinnacle

Angers finished the season just 4 points above relegation. They had only 5w in 19 home league games. I reckon this season will be very tough for them and most likely go back to lower division. Angers had a star last year Ekambi, who scored 17 goals + 5 ass, went to Villarreal. Elsewhere, Sunu - Crivelli - Oniangue- Serin left the club. I haven't satisfied with the newcomers yet.
3-4 pick won!

On the other side, Nimes came to Ligue-1 after several years. They finished the season on 2nd with direct promotion. They were playing really enjoyable football, scored 75 in 38 games which was the highest in their league. They failed to score only 18 percent of games. Nimes is underdog and I like unknown teams for public in the first weeks. I think they can score and get at least 1 point.

Pick #9
4-1-3, +139

Los Angeles FC - Sporting Kansas City
Over 3.5
Odds 2.10 at Bet365

Los Angeles FC are playing a very attacking football this season in the MLS and their matches are very high scoring. LA FC have scored 45 goals in 22 games played. With the players like Diomande, Vela and Rossi up front LA are creating plenty of chances in each game this season. They are more focusing on attacking so results in defence are far from impressive. LA have allowed already 37 goals this season.
Kansas City are averaging almost 2 goals per match, they have failed to find the net only once in the latest nine games played in both MLS and Cup matches. Defence is better comparing to LA's results still Kansas City had more problems than usual recently. They have allowed at least 2 goals in their eight games from the latest nine played in all competitions. So they had some high scoring matches recently too, among these there was a 2-3 loss to Dallas, 2-4 loss to Houston. Goals are probable in the upcoming game also.
0-2 pick lost!
