    Pick #5

    4-0-0 +426

    German Bundesliga
    Borussia v Eintracht
    Pick: OVER 3.75
    Odds: 2.24 Pinnacle

    Borussia is 3rd in the Bundesliga table with 11-6-4 record. Their goal difference is 59:32 in 21 matches, that's highest average of goals per game in the league at 4.3 per game. They have had 16 over 3.5 games in 21 played. At home the numbers are even higher, 4.6 goals per game on average and 8/10 over 3.5. Borussia's defence managed only 7 clean sheets in the league and they usually concede a goal. Their offence is very good and they have no problem scoring goals. Now they have signed terrific striker in Erling Haaland. The Norwegian already scored a 8 goals in 5 games for them. With such a great striker up front Borussia should be even more high scoring then before. Their offensive form since he signed is fantastic, scoring 20 goals in last 5 games in league and cup. Still all their defensive frailties were on full display in 2:3 loss at Bremem in Cup and in 3:4 loss in Leverkusen last week.

    Eintracht is 9th in the table with 8-4-9. Their goal average is 3.2 per game and they've had 7/21 over 3.5 games. Eintracht is in very good form lately with 10 points and 10 goals in last 10 games. Last week they trashed Augsburg 5:0 at home. They should feel good about their chances to score in Dortmund, looking at Borussia's defensive problems.

    In first game this season Borussia and Eintracht played a 2:2 draw. Previous seasons it was 1:1, 3:1, 3:2, 2:2. Borussia with Haaland as a striker is a goal scoring machine and can cover this line by themselves. Still their defence makes mistakes and in-form Eintracht should score here as well. I think we'll see another great show in Borussia game and at least 4 goals.
    4-0 pick 1/2 won


      Pick #8 Won 4 Lost 3 +160
      Soccer - England Premier League
      Game - Wolves vs. Leicester
      Pick: Over 2.5 goals
      Odds: 2.11
      Bookie: SBOBet

      While it is true that in the first part of the season when they met at Leicester the game did end up in just a nil draw in the end and maybe one of the reasons why odds are so high on the over bet right now, last season in the second part when they met here at Wolves the game had no less than 7 goals scored in it as it ended up in a 4-3 win for the hosts, and it would not really come as a surprise to me to see another game filled with goals here having watched Leicester draw 2-2 at home with Chelsea a really good game to watch even though the score was just 0-0 at half-time there were no less than 4 goals scored in the second half and even the over 3.5 goals bet was covered back than.
      This while Wolves had some difficult games lately at home won with City 3-2 a really good game from them, and lost 2-1 to Liverpool but made life really hard to their opponents, and Leicester is really not that solid in defense, even lost in the League Cup semi-finals to modest Aston Villa with 2-1 on the road after just a 1-1 draw at home, but Wolves will not be so defensive minded here playing this game at home and they do need the points if they are to play in Europe once again next season, but Leicester will be looking for the win themselves even though Vardy is not in great scoring form they really have some other wonderful players up-front creating scoring chances and do score goals so over 2.5 goals at excellent odds.

        Pick#5 2/2 +33

        Football, UAE

        Ittihad Kalba - Al Ain

        Pick: over3.5
        Odds: 2.25
        Bookie: Pinnacle

        The game where both teams will be eager to get maximum points. Sure, Kalba comes as underdogs here, but the situation around the club, poor run, forced some changes and owners expect reaction where only win matters now. It's interesting with them that when the main problem is obviously defense, they still make changes and tries to strengthen the offense. Dzsudzsak moved to the same Ain, some less notable foreigners were cut, but in their place were signed 3 new foreign players, who must turn the fortune of the club this season, all of them are offensive ones. Maybe management sees no option to tighten the defense, so will try to outscore rivals... Good then. Ain also made some changes, as I wrote Dzudzsak came, some other switches were made, anyway, they are also in urge for points here, they are favorites and still chasing the title, win tonight would lift them to 2nd place and moreover they need reboost themselves after that huge loss in AFC CL. They has what it takes to score against current Kalba, but level of defense of their own lately is questionable to say the least. Anyway tonight there is no other way than go upfront and score. This way, with all the current changes, I expect this game to dliver lot of action and goals must be there too. GL

          Pick # 7
          France,Ligue 1
          Bet 365

          Both teams are in upper half of the standings,with Monaco sitting on 7th position with 35 points,while their opponents from Montpellier are two places up on 5th,with two more points.After 3 successive losses,Monaco bounced back in the last 2 games.It is easy to forget that Monaco do have very good players when their form has not been so good.This latest win though has moved the club up to 7th place and they are just 5 points from a top 4 finish.Ben Yedder continued his great form,and he has 16 league goals in 22 appearances.He is the top-scorer in the Ligue 1 right now.Slimani has also been effective ,and he has 8 goals and 7 asists to his name this campaign.Missing players for away team are A.Oyongo,P.Mendes,K.Kaiboue and Nicolas Cozza.Home advantage here

            POD #4
            1-2 -75
            LIGUE 2

            Orleans - AC Ajaccio

            Pick: OVER 2.5 GOALS
            Odds: 2.25 at Bet365

            AC Ajaccio is for now a top three team and as of this moment they are still well and truly in the direct promotion race still. Howevever, they could be looking at the playoffs for Ligue 1 only at the end because second ranked Lens is running 5+ points away and with not much left to play, Lens is unlikely to drop that much. Orleans is the worst team in Ligue 2 and they are at the bottom with also worst defending displayed so far. This could finish as a 1:2 or even 0:3 for the away team, GL.

              Pick #3
              Standing: 2/0/0 (+250) One pick pending decision
              Football, Netherlands Eerste Divisie
              20:00 Den Bosch - Jong Utrecht
              Pick: Over 3.5 goals @2.18 - Pinnacle Sports

              The clash between middle-placed teams where I consider some kind of pleasant high-scoring outcome. The reason suits the current shape of both sides.

              Den Bosch has been simply amazing on the last two matches, winning both by 3-0 against Jong Az and trashing Roda on road by 1-5. Recently, the hosts are fired-up. One of the most offensive-minded teams has scored 8 goals on the last 2 matches, their open tactics by 4-3-3 with both Portuguese up-front Rodrigues and Rosendo Marques which are the best players and top scorers of the squad looks quite dangerous for any opponent.

              Jong Utrecht manage to win the last home game by amazing 7-2 against favorite in that match, the squad of Jong Ajax. 2 scored goals by left-wing Velanes, 1 scored by the striker Arweiler and 1 scored by the right-wing Acheffay, the visitors open-minded game plan one more time in this season has presented outstanding scoring performances. The confidence level has raise-up, the visitors are set as an underdog but only from the bookies' point. Otherwise, the squad has a lot to offer recently.

              A lot of motivation is present at this match-up. Jong Utrecht manage to trash Den Bosch in their 1st h2h this season by 5-1. Tonight, both sides are facing in a great moment, in a great squad atmosphere, a great desire to produce a win. Both sides with the playing style and the value of the match surely can bring some outstanding clash where goals will be visible on both sides.

              Good luck!

                Pick 5, 2-0-1, +220
                French Football, Ligue 1
                Monaco - Montpellier
                Pick: AH +0.5 Montpellier
                Odds: [email protected]

                I am not sure if Monaco deserve to be such favourites as the odds suggest. Montpellier are two points and two places above them, 3 points behind a European place.
                Monaco seem really shambolic (see manager changes) and unpredictable. They played 6 league games this year, started with a draw, lost 3 times, and lately they won two. I would not call it a powerhouse performance.
                Montpellier, on the other side, are not that good travellers (1-5-5, GD of 9-17 this season), but they lost only twice in their last 5 away games (ag. Lille and PSG, which is acceptable).
                H2H: in their last 5 league meetings Monaco were not able to beat them: Montpellier won twice and they drew 3 times.

                There is a lot at stake in this game considering the positions, but I would say it is a coin flip who would win. Therefore I gladly take double chance for [email protected] GL!

                  My score is 3-0-1. Please correct!


                    Pick 1
                    Almere City vs Cambuur
                    Pick: Over 3.25 goals Odds: 1.98 SBOBET

                    I think this match can have over 3.25 goals today. Almere City is ranked at the 8th place which is the last one that gives a ticket for the play offs. They come after two wins two draws and a loss over the last five matches and it seems with the recent two wins they have gotten past that bad period where they went a couple of games without a win. At home they have scored 23 goals in 12 games averaging almost two goals per game and I think they can score at least a goal here. The motivation is big on their side as they need the points in order to remain in the struggle for their goals. Cambuur is ranked at the first place with 54 points and come after three wins and two loses over the last five matches. They won the last three in a row too and it seems they have passed their bad period. On the road they are the team with the best performance so far and have scored 24 goals being the second best after Jong Ajax.

                      Pick 6 +147 3/2
                      Ligue 2
                      Le Mans - Rodez
                      pick - Over 2.5 @ 2.20 bet365

                      Le Mans is hosting Rodez here and I am certainly running out of time for the pod rules of posting so I would like to apologize for a very short preview, hopefully it should still count as valid. My point here is that Rodez is truly a talented team and they love to attack more often than not. Their defence in away game is also poorer than when they are hosting opponents at home so Le Mans could score a couple today. I do expect Rodez to answer back at least once and score a goal or more, this game overall looks to be really good for overs based on the playing styles of Le Mans and Rodez especially

                        Pescara - Cittadella pick over 2.5 Pinnacle 2.22

                        Whole day odds are going up and down for goals.
                        Also, we have unstable odds for home and away win and draw as well.
                        So bookies dont have clear idea what will happen at this game.
                        Both teams are in solid form, both chase play-off place.
                        I also dont have idea who will win this game.
                        Still, can smell goals in this one and last two games between these two went to over 2.5 goals.
                        Both games won Cittadella at home with 4-1 and 2-1.
                        I am going here with over 2.5 again.
                        Good luck !!!
