Entering the final month of the football season, let’s try and make as much money as we can before we shut up shop for the summer, so keep following and grab some profit winning tips.
England Premier League
Leicester City to beat Newcastle @ 2.00 (Bet365) – 2.5 points
Leicester City had put in a spirited performance in mid-week against Chelsea; but then faced the wrath of Mourinho in the 2nd half as they tore them apart by netting 3 second half goals to win 3-1. Leicester will take heart from that game as they welcome Newcastle this weekend, who have been in dire form losing 7 straight games in a row so far. Under John Carver they have failed to make any impression to a win, and survival is the only thing on their mind. They are there, but anything can happen if the rivals around them can all pick up victories.
Leicester are 4 points behind Newcastle in 14th, while they lie in 17th. They will look to the form of their forwards Ulloa and Vardy and expect to put in a strong performance against them to push on for an early first half goal and put pressure on Newcastle. Defensively also they have improved a little bit that saw them go on a run of 4 straight winning games until Chelsea came in.
Newcastle haven’t scored in their last 4 straight away matches, which has seen them getting thrashed, and with no one having the motivation to play for this Newcastle team, I expect Leicester to push a victory on in this game.
Spain La Liga
Sevilla v Real Madrid – Over 2.5 goals & BTTS @ 1.72 (Bet365) – 3 points
Sevilla entertain Real Madrid with both teams knowing that a victory is extremely essential in order for their respective goals this season. Sevilla are looking forward to grabbing 4th to secure a Champions League spot while Real Madrid need a victory to keep up with Barcelona who are 2 points ahead of them in the league table. Add to the the mix that both teams have semi-finals in Europe this week, with Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-finals while Sevilla are in the Europa League Semi-finals; adds all the more intrigue on how both these teams will approach this game.
Looking at Sevilla they are coming into the game charged up, with great form not losing a game in March & April plus how they performed in the Europa League coming back and drawing late in the last 10 minutes in order to secure their qualification has really pumped them up. Carlos Bacca, Kevin Gameiro and Vitolo have been in great scoring form while midfielders Benega, Suarez, Vidal and M’Bia have been really grinding and putting in the hard-work in order to help them push their success to this stage.
Real Madrid have come into this game with decent form with just a few losses coming back in March to Bilbao, Barcelona in the League while Schalke in the Champions League. Those 2 losses in the League has seen them slipped to 2nd position and putting the pressure on them to deliver goals and performances on a regular basis. They have to perform well while 3 key players in Modric, Bale and Benzema all injured from this game, and even if they are fit, will be saved up for a tough Champions League tie against Juventus in mid-week. Defensively they have struggled against teams who have gone after them at the counter attack.
After seeing the recent performances of Real Madrid, I think Sevilla will make a go for it and thats why I am backing Over 2.5 goals and both teams to score. What makes me quite certain on this pick is that this bet has landed in the last 4 league meeting between these sides.
Hoffenheim v Dortmund – Over 3 Asian Goal Line @ 1.85 (Bet365) – 2 points
Hoffenheim games love to have a lot of goals with over 3 goals landing in 6 out of their last 8 games in the league so far and the total goals conceded in their games have been over 3 goals. As they entertain Dortmund and both teams looking for a Europa League spot as both of them are within 3 points of 5th placed Schalke. Hoffenheim have been playing poorly with just 1 victory in their last 6 games. With Firmino, Modeste, Holland being their top scorers for Hoffenheim with 6 goals each, just clearly showcases the struggles they have been under to find a consistent goal scorer that would propel them to higher spots in the league.
Dortmund were last for large parts of the season, but have put in a strong performance post their Champions League exit, winning 8 of their last 12 games with 2 draws, that have put them on the cusp of a Europa League spot. As Klopp is in the process of exiting, I think he will want to finish off the season strongly and secure at least a Europa League spot for the new manager in as I think Dortmund need a year out of the major attention in order to rebuild and push on. Aubamayeng and Reus have been their top 2 goal scorers and will theoretically be auditioning for a sales to a new club, and should perform strongly as they post season comes in.
Hoffenheim and Dortmund do not have the best defenses in the league at present, and with 3 goals landing in 6 out of their last 7 games, and over 3.5 landing in 5 of those games, expect a nice goal scoring session in store tonight.
