Man City – Stoke [Prediction]

May 14, 2011 0 Betting, Soccer, Sports

Prediction: Man City to win, under 2.5 goals

Stake: 10/11 and 4/6

Match date: May 14

Competition: FA Cup Final

Stadium: Wembley, London

 

The long-expected FA Cup Final is finally here and my soccer prediction comes with it. It will be a strange FA Cup Final, since we don’t get to see any of the big names who traditionally fight for this trophy. In fact the last big name, Manchester United, were kicked out in the semis by their arch-rivals Manchester City at one goal difference.

Neither of these two teams have won anything in ages. Man City’s most recent trophy was the League cup in 1976, whereas for Stoke City, their last and only trophy was in 1972. So chances are, and as a sports bettor I trust the statistics, both teams will take this final very seriously. Manchester City already played it 8 times (4 wins, 4 losses), but it’s the first time that Stoke is playing it. Tensions will be high in the crowds.

Both teams are known for their defensive styles. And though Stoke has had a very good run (5-0 against Bolton and 3-1 against Arsenal), they usually rather defend and go for counter-attacks when they have the chance. Manchester City on the other hand has some fabulous talent in front (Balotelli, Tevez, Dzeko being their stars), but in their past 6 games they only once scored 2 goals.

I’m going for an under 2.5 goals at 4/6 stakes on bet365 for 3 units. And I’m also favoring Man City to win, although the stake is kind of low at 10/11 on bet365. That’s why I’m putting 4 units on this one.

Weekend ahead!

Wow, I’m glad to be finally posting again here. I actually started “working” on my blog this week, trying to get some link exchanges. I met lots of passionate sports bloggers and closed some neat deals 😀

And now the weekend is approaching. And with it, the juicy soccer games of the European leagues. I’m going to keep my eyes on the following:

 

Saturday

Manchester City vs. Stoke (16.00 CET) – FA Cup final

 

Sunday

Chelsea vs. Newcastle (14.30 CET) – English Premier League

Napoli vs. Inter Milan (21.45 CET) – Italian Serie A

 

I’m looking forward to placing some soccer bets and winning some units. I haven’t yet had time to study the teams very well, so I can’t make any predictions now. Tomorrow though I will look into that and post on the blog as well.

Hope you all have a great weekend! By the way, if you have any “inside info” on these matches, DO let me know!

Liverpool – Fulham [Recap]

January 28, 2011 0 Betting, Recaps, Soccer, Sports

Though Liverpool didn’t perform quite as well as I had expected, they were still able to bring about a 1:0 win against Fulham Wednesday.

For those who didn’t catch the game – the Reds got into the lead 52 minutes into the match when a shot by Fernando Torres was initially deflected and then knocked into the net by Fulham player John Pantsil. All in all Fulham performed reasonably well but still weren’t able to hold up against Liverpool.

This win brings Liverpool up to seventh place in the Premier League. Fulham falls to number 15 – just four points from the bottom three.

Liverpool – Fulham [Prediction]

January 25, 2011 0 Betting, Predictions, Soccer, Sports

Prediction: Liverpool Win
Stake: 7/10
Match Date: January 26
League: English Premier League
Stadium: Anfield, Liverpool

Liverpool and Fulham had been scheduled to face off last month but the match was postponed until tomorrow, January 26th at 9pm. The teams will meet at Liverpool’s home stadium Anfield, where Fulham has a terrible history – not even a single win in their last 29 visits.
Besides having home field advantage on their side, Liverpool goes into this game with a nearly full bill of health – only Milan Jovanovic and Jamie Carragher will be watching from the sidelines and Captain Steven Gerrard will be back from suspension.
Fulham, on the other hand, is down four players, all of whom are out with long-term injuries. Mark Schwarzer is also out playing with his home team Australia in the Asian Cup semi-finals.
All in all, the odds are clearly in Liverpool’s favor. The bookmakers are taking bets at around 1.5 for Liverpool, 3.5 for a draw and 6 on Fulham. I predict a win for Liverpool with a stake of 7/10. I’d guess the final score will end up around 2:0 or 3:0.
