    POD #3
    2W +201

    England, Premier League

    Leicester - Aston Villa

    Pick: Over 3.0 Goals
    Odds: 2.13
    Bookmaker: Pinnacle

    Two good offensive teams that are both capable scoring multiple goals. However, at the same time, both teams have defensive problems and they don't look as confident at the back. Leicester sold some players that in the past really helped them with their back four, now Brendan Rodgers is left with a weakened defensive setup but as long as his attack and Jamie Vardy are produing goals, he can live with that.

    Jack Grealish was rested in the last game against Denmark so the best player of Aston Villa is going to be fresh going into this away game against Leicester. Aston Villa scored seven agianst Liverpool while Leicester scored five against City. Two underrated teams with an offensive mindset and some quality players like Vardy and Grealish.

      Tottenham - West Ham

      Pick: Tottenham -1 AH
      Odds: 2.09 from Pinnacle

      After a historic victory over Manchester United in the 4th round of the Premier League, the Tottenham Hotspurs will host and welcome their fellow London rival - West Ham United.

      The Hammers approach this tough matchup against Jouse Mourinho in good spirits. The Hammers have recorder some impressive victories in the first few rounds.

      As of right now, Harry Kane and Son are the best partnership and duo of the Premier League. They both assist each other and they are far from selfish. The ideal combination for Jose Mourinho who is finally having some positive thoughts about his team and football in general. Besides Harry Kane and Son, there is also Lamela who has done an excellent job as of late, especially in that cup match where everyone expected the Spurs to lose with their B lineup. Hojbjerg in the midfield is exactly the type of player tha Mourinho was looking for. Dier and Sanchez are both improving while Regullion is looking decent so far. Aurier is hot and cold but he can be a crucial player on that right side. On goal, there is Hugo Lloris and he is finally healthy and in good form.

      Tottenham with too many great players and a fantastic legendary manager that is only starting to make a difference with this Tottenham team.

      The Hammers are playing better without David Moyes on the touchlines, but this is a too big of a challenge for West Ham. In my humble opinion, this is the end of the road for their recent winning streak and they are going to lose with at least one goal difference, if not more.
      3-3 pick lost


        Pick #4 (0-0-3) -300

        England Premier League

        Sheffield United - Fulham

        Pick : Over 2.5
        Odds : 2.25
        Bookie : Pinnacle

        The odds are incredible! Both for sure are so far amongst the worst team of the Premier League so far but this is a golden opportunity for one of them to finally take the 3 points! Sheffield United should be the most favorite team here in their own ground, they also had a narrow defeat at Emirates against Arsenal 2-1, they also had a narrow defeat in Birmingham against Aston Villa after taking an early red card and missing a penalty kick. This is a perfect game to bounce game against a team who is struggling alot.

        Fulham looks like a team that will not have lot of capacity to save themselves in the Premier League but they are trying... Especially while facing those lowers teams. They almost got a point in Leeds at the opening game but lost 4-3. Anyway they have so far one of the worst defence of Premier League alongside the other promoted team of West Brom (i don't count ManU and Liverpool who conceded 6 & 7 goals in their previous game) and they should concede more once again today.

        This is the game for the win for both of the teams! My call is 3-2!
        1-1 pick lost

          Den Haag - Vitesse
          Picken Haag +1 AH

          Vitesse bounced back with a 3-0 win over Heracles just before the recent international break.Their form on the road late hasn't been good with three losses and one draw across the last five away matches played.Den Haag also returned to winnig ways,leaving VVV with a narrow 2-1 win,ending a four-match losing streak in the process.Home team manager A.Rankovic will be thankful to have no fitness worries to speak of before this game with a completely injury-free squad ready to go.Ex-Man.United wonder boy Ravel Morrison,is hoping to make his Den Haag debut.Home team are unbeaten in the league by Vitesse in their last 5 games...1-1 or 2-1 ..

            3rd pick 2/0 +227
            Tottenham - West Ham
            Pick: Over 3.0
            Odds: 2.07 @ pinnacle

            All of 5 last WHU's game have had at least 3 goals scored. They are in terrific form having won their last two league games versus Wolverhampton Wanderers (4:0) and more impressively versus Leicester City on the road (1:3).

            WHU is nowadays stable upfront and most importantly, they now have consistency with Antonio and Bowen.

            Tottenham's win versus Manchester United (1:6) was the second consecutive game for Mourinho where they have scored 6+ goals. In their previous game just few days prior, Tottenham qualified for Europa League over Maccabi (7:2).
            3-3 pick won


              Pick 4( 1w, 1,5 lost, 0,5 void)

              Sandecja- Belchatow
              Pick 1(-0.25), 2.00 Pinnacle

              I would have to use a lot of time to explain what is happening in Sandecja. They lost all first 8 games and they did not suck a coach yet!
              Situation in this club is very complicated and they have to earn at least one point today and try to win.
              P. Mandrysz had 0 successes in last 4 years as a coach and he had 0 points after 8 games so he made a big progress . He is very consistent we would say!
              I believe that players will try to win against their coach , for yourself. They lost couple vital players this summer (at least 3 imp. line for example Kun) but i still see many exp. players (likely they are close to the end of serious playing).
              Belchatow are one of worst team and opponent to grab 3 points is very good.
              Sandecja should not loose in Lodz with Widzew (with fans!) but gk made a mistake in 53th min and later Sandecja missed 2 very good chances inc. great one (from 3 meters after 83th min). They should build on this game.
              No fans may help them, as they were not pressuie and sour chants from the fans after 008 record.
              0-0 pick 1/2 lost


                Pick no. 2 // +117

                Crystal Palace x Brighton

                take OVER 2.5 @ 2.16 SBOBET

                Wilfred Zaha and Batshuayi are both expected to start this match. Roy Hodgson's defence conceded way too many penalties and there are some things that they need to work on in their defence. Brighton has been a consistent threat no matter who they were up against. Even top teams haven't had the luxury of not defending hard against them, because Brighton through Trossard, Connolly and Maupay, have an outstanding offence for this lower/mid-table level. Trossard hit the post three times, Maupay both scored and gave away a penalty against United and Connolly is a fantastic young talent. Defence of Palace and Brighton will not stand the test of Zaha/Batshuayi on one side, and Connolly/Trossard/Maupay on the other side.

                Crystal Palace probable lineup:

                Guaita; Ward, Cahill, Sakho, Mitchell; Townsend, McCarthy, Kouyate, Eze; Zaha, Batshuayi

                Brighton probable lineup:

                Ryan; White, Dunk, Webster; Lamptey, Bissouma, Alzate, March; Trossard, Connolly, Maupay

                My call is a 2-2 draw,
                good luck.

                  Soccer - French Ligue 1
                  MONACO - MONTPELLIER (15:00 CET)
                  Pick: over 3.0
                  Odds: 2.25

                  Bookie: Pinnacle

                  Last season Monaco became scoring team, thanks to Wissam Ben Yedder (last season 19 goals, this season 3 goals so far). Last season 10 overs in 14 home games (3.6 goals). This season 3 overs in 3 home games (2-2, 2-1 and 3-2).

                  Montpellier can play high scoring games too. This year they have 5 overs in 6 games home and away and it was very nice overs with BTS. Four players have 2 goals or more including Andy Delort (12 goals last season).

                  This game can finish with lot of goals, my call is 3-2.

                    Pick #1 (0W-0V-0L) (+-0)

                    League: Premier league
                    Match: Sheffield United - Fulham
                    Pick: Fulham +0.5 AH
                    Odds: 1.79
                    Bookmaker: Pinnacle

                    Both teams started this season very bad with all defeats so this will be very important match in a relegation battle. Both managers have some problems with injured players, C. Wilder could give a debut to R. Brewster following his move from Liverpool after O. Burke and D. McGoldrick picked up knocks on international duty, Egan and Fleck could also miss. R. Loftus-Cheek is in line for an immediate debut after his loan from Chelsea. Sheffield has many problems in attacking line, scored only once in 4 games, in the 83rd against Arsenal and can hope that Brewster will solve their problems in that area. Fulham has very bad defense and their new arrivals could reverse that trend but in this game crucial will be battle in the midfield and guests have players to hold Sheffield toothless and much more weapons in the attacking game. I think that Fulham won't be defeated in this match.

                      Chinese Super League
                      Shanghai Shenhua v Shanghai SIPG
                      Pick: Shanghai SIPG -1.25
                      Odds: 2.08 Pinnacle

                      First leg of play-off game and I'm suprised to see this high odds on Shanghai SIPG, who are much better team here. This play-off games are played on neutral ground so there is no home advantage here.

                      Shanghai SIPG have won their group with ease, 10-2-2, 26:11. Last season they were 3rd with 20-6-4 record. They are one of powerhouse teams in China and they were always in top3 in last 5 seasons, winning the championship in 2018. They have fantastic players like Oscar and Hulk.

                      Shanghai Shenhua have managed to sneak into championship play-offs on 4th place in group A with 5-6-3 record. Last season they were only 13th with 8-6-16 record. They are solid team but class below their rivals.

                      Shanghai SIPG have dominated this fixture in recent years. Last season it was two trashings 3:1 and 4:0. Shanghai SIPG are 8-1-1 against Shanghai Shenhua in the last 5 years.

                        American Football, NFL
                        Jacksonville Jaguars - Detroit Lions
                        Pick: Detroit Lions -4.5 points AH
                        Odds:. 2.22
                        Bookie: Pinnacle

                        Both teams have only one win in this season (Jags one loss more because of Lions having a week bye). For Detroit such balance it's big
                        disappointment as expectations were much higher. With Matthew Stafford healthy and some good signings in draft and off season Detroit's target were playoffs. Now in current balance every upcoming match is just a fight to not waste a whole season. Against Jacksonville who are under big reconstruction any other result than convincing victory will be a shame. Hosts lost several important players starting from their great defence - ending even on running game. They are lead by Gardner Minshew a quaterback who is unconventional and eccentric guy but also having many limitations in his style of play and skills. Because of that I expect Lions to dominate in every aspect of the game starting from running (Peterson, Johnson) and passing (Golladay, Jones), ending on defending. Even more I smell double digit margin difference in this match in Lions favour so covering -4.5 points asian handicap line shouldn't be a problem.

                          Hammarby vs Mjallby

                          Pick: Mjallby +0.75 AH
                          Odds: 2.16

                          I expect Mjallby to stay unbeaten in this match. Hammarby look out of form in the last period. They have just one victory in the last 4 rounds of Allsvenskan. But there is another problem as the club officials decided to sell the best player Muamer Tankovic to AEK Athens. That is a big handicap for Hammarby. That's not the end of the issues - Jeppe Andersen is out due to suspension, while Simon Sandberg and Mohanad Jeahze are injured. Mjallby are in solid form, they have two victories in the last three matches and the players confidence is higher. Almost all players are available and I think they won't lose here.

                            2.22 Pinnacle

                            With Liverpool and Everton both dropping 2 points and with Manchester City and Manchester United collecting all 3 points in yesterday's matches, today the pressure is on Tottenham to beat West Ham and slowly join the top 4 race. Mourinho against Moyes is a matchup that Mou should win all day, but West Ham cannot be underestimated and Jose knows this. After dismantling Leicester and Wolves with some big scorelines, there is no shortage of respect that Tottenham will provide for West Ham.
                            Moyes could opt out for a more defensive-minded formation against Jose's powerful offense while Jose's players always have that aggressive defensive edge.

                              LA Rams @ SF 49ers

                              LA Rams -5 AH @ 2.25 Bet 365

                              The Los Angeles Rams are playing on the road in San Francisco where they will face the 49ers.

                              There is so much to talk about the 49ers. This is a team that was in the last year's Superbowl and they lost to the Kansas City Chiefs with 20:31. They had one of the best defenses of the season in 2019 and their quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo was amazing.

                              Only a few months later and a couple of weeks into the new season of 2020, the tables have drastically turned for the 49ers.

                              Believe it or not, Jimmy Garoppolo was so bad that in the last game the coach has decided to bench him mid-game. The Rams had no respect from the public nor the bookies in the early games of 2020 season. That was funny, to say the least, because they have the best player in the whole NFL in Aaron Donald. Now the Rams are back in business and they are often favorites against many teams. They should dominate this wounded 49ers team and cover the minimum of -5 ah.
