We have taken a look ahead to what’s coming over the next two days and found a few flutters that have taken our interest – starting tonight!
Brighton and Hove Albion V Manchester United
BTTS and Brighton to win – 11/10
Manchester have only managed an extra two clean sheets than their opponents tonight which should be staggering given the supposed gulf in quality between the two.
Somehow though it isn’t.
The reverse fixture earlier in the season saw the Devils walk away with a 3-1 win but, given how the season has played out since then, and the spaghetti armed David De Gea in goal for the Reds, another four goal game could well be on the cards and perhaps even a home win.
The only thing is, we might need to wait until the second half for the ball for find its way to the net.
Genoa v Juventus
Juventus to win to nil – 8/13
Fresh off the back of a 4-0 home win over Lecce at the weekend, Juve are in top form and yet to concede a single goal in the four games they have played since the return as they march towards a ninth successive Scudetto.
True, Genoa have found the net in each of their last seven games but Juve have the second highest possession share of any team in Serie A and will boss this fight to live Genoa rocking.
Barcelona v Atletico Madrid
Away Yellow Cards Over/Under: Over 3.5 – 17/10
Barcelona might just have blown their La Liga defence when they slipped up at Celta Vigo on Saturday and now find themselves needing to close two points on Real Madrid.
Two draws in three games is not the kind of form needed before Atletico Madrid visit the Camp Nou.
Diego Simeone’s stifling side have restarted like lightning, taking maximum points from their last four La Liga outings and are in the midst of a 12 match unbeaten run.
Notoriously hard to beat and tough on the pitch, Barca could well be in trouble.
True, they have the brilliance of Messi and Suarez but Atleti have won of the best stoppers in the game and can play brutally.
So brutal, that above 3.5 yellow cards for the away side looks enticing.
West Ham United V Chelsea
Winning Margin, Chelsea by 3 – 7/1
A midweek London derby – simply beautiful.
This, though, is no fair fight.
Not only are the two sides aiming at very different targets, West Ham at survival and Chelsea at Champions League qualification, but their respective form since the restart have been polar.
The Hammers have played two, lost two, while Chelsea have achieved the exact opposite, even putting Man City to the sword last Thursday.
Lampard’s men have scored two goals or more in each of their last five league games and could well win by three at the London Stadium on Wednesday.
Inter v Brescia
Half Time/Full Time X/1 – 3/1
A magical three minutes for Inter just about kept their feint chances of title success alive when they flipped a potential 1-0 defeat against Parma into a 2-1 victory.
This makes the 20/1 price on Inter to win in the second half on Wednesday night very interesting indeed.
Brescia are currently languishing in second last position and have the lowest goal per game average in Serie A this season with just 10.5 shots.
Given how games have gone since the restart – with the overwhelming amount being scored in the second half – we’ll go with Inter to nick it after a bore draw at the break.
