  • Pick of the day 26/12

    I know all moderators are enjoying the Cristhmas right now and they won’t open this thread till morning, but since i won’t be online till evening can you please put it in.Thank you, and i wish you all Merry Cristhmas (i hope Santa has been generous ).

    Cardif City – Walsall 1, 1.75 @ Gamebookers

    I love Englishmen.In these days for me like any others (and for the rest of non-catholic world), it’s hard to see a quality football match.But, tomorrow, it will be a special day for betting as many games look promising along with few matches trasmitted here in Serbia, i see a very pleasant afternoon.
    Cardif really needs to bounce back today after some bad results lately especially last home defeat by Millwall had upset the fans.Now even Cardif manager Lennie Lawrence announced he’ll rest some players as he said “to withdraw them from firing lines”.Amongst those players are mentioned Wales defender Danny Gabiddon and first goalie Neil Alexander.
    Walsall have been doing fine so far, they are comfortably above the relegation zone, holding the 14-th place.But, most of the good results so far achieved at home, while on the road have not so convincing 2-3-7.Last weekend they drew at home vs. West Ham United.

      Leeds - Aston Villa

      Leeds - Aston Villa 3.45 DRAW with Expekt bet PICK WON 0-0 However this pick is outside the main Competition

      In a match like this, where manager of Villa, David O'Leary is returning to his former club, after a statement that he would like Leeds to do well, even accepting not to receive some financials due to his early dismissal some 2 and a half years ago, the expectations will be low.
      The two teams have been struggling for form all season, only recently they are putting up some interesting results. Juan Pablo Angel is in top-form for Villa, while Viduka is back in the squad for Leeds, and Sacko and Smith will try to provide the right scoring boots for their home crowd.

      I believe the omens in this match point to a draw, a 1-1 possibly. They are certainly not the most attractive teams, they only try to secure themselves in mid table, Leeds would certainly want it after a dismal start. So, my "spot the draw" feeling is backed by these stats:

      05/11/2003 Leeds United-Aston Villa 3-1

      10/06/2002 Aston Villa-Leeds United 0-0

      04/13/2002 Aston Villa-Leeds United 0-1

      11/25/2001 Leeds United-Aston Villa 1-1

      01/24/2001 Aston Villa-Leeds United 1-2
      Could be one of these matches where a lot of missed opportunities will go begging, but there may be marginal goals.I see David O'Leary not wanting to inflict a lot of damage into this Leeds team, but Leeds will try to win, but not in the current form Villa is in.
      Confidence 5/10
      P.S. I wanted to back a horse race today, but I'll just say I don't facny Jair du Cochet to win in the King George. Pipe or Knight may have last words.

            Arsenal(-2) vs Wolverhampton(+2) 1 2,05 @Pinnacle WON

            I know it`s stupid to bet on big handicaps while Arsenal could be satisfied with 1-0, juts like MU were in that famous MU-Wolves 1-0 match.

            But it`s a Boxing Day in England, I think unique tradition in whole Europe to enjoy sports events on the second day of Christmas. Well tradition like tradition - stadiums are always full and crowd wants to see really good match. Players should keep up to the tradition and make a shows. What comparisments can be done here? All know how weak side Wolves are and how good is Arsenal domesticly. Of course win for Arsenal is priority, 3 points more for title race. Wolves can look for points elsewhere.

            In Carling Cup full Wolves side were trashed 5-1 by Arsenal younsters+Vieira, Wiltord and Kanu side....
            That`s shows the difference I think.

            While all those poeple on the crowd will be looking for good traditional Boxing Day show, Arsenal will go for win and I think will win by couple of goals.

              Arsenal - Wolverhampton - over 3 goals @ 2.01 (Pinnacle) 3:0 - bet canceled (again...) :?

              Like Arbiter already said - it's a Boxing Day and people would like to enjoy in sport today. So players have to give them same fun today. And I think on Highbury today will be some fun for sure. Arsenal is expected to win easily this match and the handicap is set to -2, so the bookies expect Arsenal to score near 3 goals. I think they can score even 4 today against realy weak defense of Wolverhampton. And if Wolves manage to score then this bet becomes quite an easy one...

              Good luck! :wink:

                Leeds United vs Aston Villa X HT 2.10@Interwetten 0-0 HT WON

                Leeds United is in uptrend they have two wins and two draws in last six games. At home they are 2-3-4 9-15.
                Leeds caretaker-boss Eddie Gray could turn to Matthew Kilgallon after losing Lucas Radebe to a hamstring injury

                Aston Villa have 3 wins and 3 losses in last six. Away they are 1-2-6 6-16
                Villa boss David O'Leary has to decide whether to persevere with Stefan Moore in preference to Darius Vassell. Dion Dublin's fine form as a striker turned defender may again mean Ronny Johnsen on the substitute's bench

                HEAD TO HEAD at Leeds
                League: Leeds 17 wins, Villa 8, Draws 14
                Prem: Leeds 4 wins, Villa 2, Draws 5

                They made 5 draws in last 11 games played at Leeds. It will be a tight match and IMO will be a draw, but someone allready took the draw at FT, and also draw at HT it will be a good bet. (i hope)

                Good Luck to All !

                  Arsenal-Wolves - Pires score anytime - 2.87 Gamebookers

                  I have to admit that betting in English soccer is not my favorite thing to do but since these days there are not many events to bet on and I left two more bets to make,I 'll try with something risky but I think its worth...
                  Arsenal shouldn't have a problem today against Wolves,last in standings, so probably they will win scoring many times.I prefer to take a bet on Pires, first because of the good value and secondly because Robert is second scorer in Arsenal with 6 goals behind Henry.

                    Birmingham-Man City 2 @ 3.35 by Expekt

                    After seeing Man City play against Leeds last Monday night I make them my Pick of the day. They dominated this match completely and only because of a stupid mistake by Sommeil did they lose this game. They are lacking in confidence, but hopefully the late equaliser scored on Monday will help them build on this.

                      Liverpool-Bolton. My pick for today: Last pick for this month . Boxing day in England. I risk with Liverpool win by 1 goal @ 3.75 sportingbet

                      I can see here two similar quality teams to compete. Liverpool is not playing well and Owen is out. On the other hand Bolton has good results with the big clubs till now. But, even if draw is very probable, I will pick Liverpool by 1 goal. Why? Is the home factor and the name . 2nd is cannot Bolton manage to cope with difficults all the time. 4/10 stake

                          Good afternoon !

                          My pick of the day for Boxing Day (Friday) is from English Div.1 :

                          Crewe v Burnley.................... :arrow: 4 goals or more...................3.00 at Ladbrokes

                          The conservative choice here would've been a simple OVER 2.5 goals, available at 1.87 (Pointbet)... Highly likely, and it keeps you out of trouble since 1X2 today is tradionally like Russian roulette !

                          I opted for the more rewarding 4+ goals offered by Ladbrokes, since I believe that if OVER 2.5 materialises, it's gonna be by a mile !!! Burnley has now surpassed Ipswich (43-34, total 77 goals) and Wimbledon (24-52, total 76 goals) as the most prolific team in Div.1 in combined for/against goals. They got a total of 79 goals (36-43) in 24 games, easily over 3 goals per game (3.3 to be exact) ! In their last three games they averaged easily over 5 goals (5.33) per game, while Crewe hasn't been doing much worse in that department : last three games averaged 4.33 for them !!! All the above mentioned games were OVERs, and I see nothing changing tonight... as a matter of fact Burnley will keep the Dane, Brian Jensen, at goal despite him being blamed for at least 3-4 out of the five goals conceeded last week at Deepdale (Preston won the Lancashire derby 5-3).

                          Expected scores : 2-2, 3-2, 2-3, 2-4, 4-2... Pretty wild, huh ???

                          This Boxing Day is usually more of a gamble than anything else ! Anyway, I wish you all good luck !!!
                          8) 8) 8)

                          PICK WON (3-1)
                          Hasta la Victoria Siempre

                            since all "my" Arsenal picks already taken :wink:
                            gona go on ManU.

                            ManU(-1.5)-Everton(+1.5) 1 2.00 Bet365 LOST 3-2...stupid90min goal

                            Manu are in good form. They usualy win by 2 or more at home.
                            Last week should also win by 2 or more away to Spurs but missed a lot.
                            i think they will play for their fans here and give them couple of goals in this holiday time :wink:
                            With dead-run wih CHE and ARS still underway i think they cannot afford to slip up. I watched Everton in last game and i don`t think they can do a lot here quality diff just to big here.

                            PHI 76-ers and HOU Astros FOREVER

                              Notts County - Queens Park Rangers ( LOSE - FT : 3-3 ) Somehow QPR took the lead twice and twice gave it up, going 1 beind and then equalised....sigh. Also, picked the only loser yesterday of my 4 picks...what luck. Jeez. Hope you guys had better luck!Pick: 2
                              Odds: 2.05 @ Globet

                              After just barely missing out on promotion last season in the playoffs, this season, QPR has come a long way to justify their claims for an automatic promotion spot. Before the last match, which QPR was defeated 2-1, they had gone on a nice 7 match unbeaten run, winning 5 of them in the process. All of the victories were largely deserved and could have managed more than a draw in the other 2. While Oldham's win is a slight blip for QPR's form, I fully expect them to bounce back into a winning habit against one of the poorest sides of Division 2.

                              Notts County has always flirted with relegation. But this season, it looks real serious now. Even though they have managed to crunch out a few decent results, recently though, they have just accumulated 4 points out of their last possible 15. Lying thrid from bottom, with a horrible strike rate, it is going to be a long hard season for themn to stay up once again. And against QPR, it is certainly not the type of form to be in.

                              H2H stands at 3/0/1 in favor of QPR. For your info, QPR has been hit by a flu bug, and 5 of its players are doubtful. Their manager would make a last minute decision if it is ok to field them. Nevertheless, I still expect QPR to come away with the win.
