Betting Odds For August 19, 2017

first_imgBrazil : Seria ACorinthians SP vs Vitoria Ba (1x & u 4.5)This tie can easily be ticked as a home win without much analysis by most football pundits. Corinthians SP are a very good team in the Brazilian league and their opponents for this tie (Vitoria Ba) have not been in good form this season.Corinthians SP are the overwhelming favourite for this fixture but my crystal ball tells me that this will not be easily won by Corinthians SP. So my call for this will be 1x and under 4.5.Scotland : League OneAlloa Athletic vs Queens Park (1x/12)Fresh from a good cup win, Alloa Athletic will fancy their chances of winning this tie. Playing at home is a factor in this league and most home teams which are favourite in their ties end up winning.Queens Park will be hoping to surprise the home team and judging from the history of this match-up, one cannot rule such outcome out.My call for this will be a home win or draw in the first half and the entirety of the game should not end in a draw.France : Ligue 1Stade Rennes vs Dijon (1x/12)For Stade Rennes, playing at home is a big factor which they use to their advantage majority of the time. This encounter will see the home team playing against a Dijon side that just gained promotion to French Ligue 1.Dijon lost their last match 1:4 against Monaco last weekend and they will be hoping to improve this time around playing away from home. The team has a bad away form of late.My call for this tie will be a home win or draw in the first half and the entirety of the game should not end in a draw.England : Premier LeagueSwansea vs Manchester United. (away win)Having won their first tie this season, Manchester United will be hoping to consolidate on that result by winning this against Swansea. The reverse fixture saw both teams settling for a draw.The optimism in the Manchester United camp is high and this game should be a straight forward win for Manchester United. Swansea just sold arguably their best player in sigursson to Everton and this should count as something against them in this fixture.My call for this tie is an away win for the Red Devils.All odds amount to a 3-odd multiplier.The mastermindRelatedBetting Odds For August 12, 2017August 12, 2017In “Europe”Betting Odds For August 11, 2017August 11, 2017In “Europe”Betting Odds For August 13, 2017August 13, 2017In “England”last_img read more
