Football odds are available for our favourite European betting tips from across the top domestic leagues inside of Europe. Read on for this week's best bets in football.

La Liga

Real Valladolid vs. SD Huesca

Friday 29th January, 08:00 PM Kick-Off

Estadio Jose Zorrilla

Bottom of the Table Stalemate

Two of the divisions bottom five squads will tangle this Friday evening in an expected stalemate clash of lacklustre teams.

Valladolid has had slightly more success than their opponents but with a mere two wins at home this season, expecting results from them has been costly.

SD Huesca is rock bottom of La Liga and has been paired with a drawn game this season. 50% of their domestic fixtures have ended in a draw, expecting that repeat result would not be surprising.

Form, Mentality, La Liga Odds and Trends

  • Valladolid has drawn three games consecutively.

  • Valladolid has won just one game from their previous seven in domestic competition.

  • Huesca has drawn 50% of their fixtures this term.

Final Thoughts| La Liga Betting Tips

Both squads are struggling in the final third, and although the reverse fixture provided four goals in a 2-2 draw, I would not expect the same energy.

The best method when betting this game is to take the value, the reverse fixture ended in a draw, recent results for both squads are frequently ending in a draw, and the price is excellent.

Real Valladolid vs. SD Huesca Score prediction: Valladolid 1 – Real Valladolid 1

Best Bet: Draw 2.43 [+343] at Unibet

German Bundesliga

Bayern Munich vs. TSG Hoffenheim

Saturday 30th January, 02:30 PM Kick-Off

Allianz Arena

Sweet Revenge

Heavy schedules and the COVID-19 pandemic have certainly taken its toll on professional football, as domestic leagues across Europe provide unpredictable outcomes. But one team who continues their dominance is German champions Bayern Munich.

Exactly halfway into the Bundesliga season, Munich has scored fifty-three goals. If this trend continues, we can expect the German giants to break their current record of 101 goals scored in one domestic season.

Hoffenheim handed Munich of their two defeats this season in style – a 4-1 hammering was quite the shock to critics, and we should expect Hans to be hands-on in this clash.

Form, Mentality, Bundesliga Odds and Trends

  • Six of Hoffenheim's previous seven fixtures have returned over 2.5 goals.

  • Munich has won thirteen of their eighteen domestic games this term.

  • Munich is undefeated in thirty-six of their previous thirty-eight Bundesliga fixtures.

Final Thoughts| Bundesliga Betting Tips

Hoffenheim is riding high but we can't but believe their three-game clean sheet record will end this week.

I'm not interested in the available odds for a straight win because with Bayern Munich often follows a set of hefty odds, but Munich has been dominating from start to finish in recent outings. Backing the halftime/fulltime market seems viable.

Bayern Munich vs TSG Hoffenheim Score prediction: Bayern Munich 3 – Hoffenheim 1

Best Bet: Munich Halftime/Fulltime 1.70 [-135] at BetVictor

English Premier League

Manchester City vs. Sheffield United

Saturday 30th January, 03:00 PM Kick-Off

Etihad Stadium

Manchester Double for Sheffield?

The pep in his step is back, City manager Pep Guardiola reclaimed the EPL 1st place position this week as his squad dismantled West Bromwich Albion 5-0.

Sheffield took their second win all season versus the other end of Manchester, in a game where the bookmakers must have profited quite comfortably that evening.

Manchester's current form is undeniable, eleven consecutive victories in all competitions. This play output is all too familiar of the squad that was unstoppable during the 18/19 EPL season.

Final Thoughts| EPL Betting Tips

It's highly doubtful that Sheffield will capitalise on their small windows of opportunity, possession will below. Although confidence may be higher, the facts remain that Sheffield is currently the worst club inside the EPL.

Manchester City vs Sheffield United Score prediction: Manchester City 3 – Sheffield United 0

Best Bet: Manchester City to win both halves at 2.15 [+115] with Bet365 (visit our Bet365 Review)
