German Bundesliga

Borussia Monchengladbach vs. Borussia Dortmund

Friday, January 22nd, 2021 - 07:30 PM Kick-Off at Signal Iduna Park

Approach the Goals Market

A clash of the two Borussia's will take place this week in a rivalry game at Borussia Park, where we expect many goals to be on display.

Both clubs are chasing a top-four finish (minimum) and equally have the strike-force to provide plenty of goals. When you look at the history between the two, witnessing many goals has been a common occurrence with 3.41 goals being scored in their previous twelve encounters.

These numbers remain outside of the club's rivalry; each team's statistics show an abundance of goals being scored this season. Gladbach is averaging 3.35 goals per game, and Dortmund is returning 3.23 each play.

Form, Mentality, Bundesliga Odds & Trends

  • Monchengladbach average 3.35 goals per game.
  • Dortmund average 3.23 goals per game.
  • The previous twelve fixtures between the two have provided 3.41 goals per game.
  • Dortmund has been level at half time in five of their previous six Bundesliga fixtures.
  • Dortmund has avoided defeated in eleven of their last fifteen away fixtures in the Bundesliga.

Final Thoughts| Bundesliga Betting Tips

Goals will be expected in this meeting, so don't hesitate in the goals betting market; these two sides have equally provided a plethora of goals this term and should continue in the heated rivalry.

I'm not interested in the available odds for a straight win but backing both teams to score and the over 2.5 mark being reached seems viable.

Score Prediction: Gladbach 2 – Dortmund 2

Best Bet: Both teams to score & Over 2.5 goals 1.73 [-137] at William Hill (visit our William Hill Review)

English Premier League

Aston Villa vs. Newcastle

Saturday, January 23, 2021 - 08:00 PM Kick-Off at Villa Park

Do Not Back These Magpies in the Top-Flight

The Magpies aren't living up to their nickname as they continue to fly low this season, Steve Bruce's squad are now reaching nine games without a singular win. Appalling results and lack of effort in front of goal is becoming a relegation concern.

Newcastle has only found the back of the net once in their previous five EPL fixtures, and on the road, they have suffered three consecutive defeats – including a first win of the season for bottom-of-the-league Sheffield United.

Villa has had their ups and downs, but nothing compared, in-fact, recent performances, even if loss have shown a determined to win squad. A-once injury-plagued squad now sees a healthy return when Dean Smith fielded a fully-fit team versus Manchester City.

Final Thoughts| EPL Betting Tips.

Backing the away side will not fare well, as this clash should be a relaxing encounter for the West Midlands side. Six back-to-back losses away from home don't leave Newcastle as a desirable squad to back.

I would not expect a high scoring game with low goal-tallies at Villa of late, boost your odds by backing Villa to win and under 3.5 total goals being scored.

Score Prediction: Villa 2 – Newcastle 0

Best Bet: Aston Villa win & under 3.5 goals @ 2.20 [+120] at PaddyPower (visit our PaddyPower Review)

Serie A

Roma vs. Spezia

Saturday, January 23, 2021 - 02:00 PM Kick-Off at Stadio Olimpico

Revenge is Sweet

Roma and Spezia met for the first time this past week, in history… and it did not go well when The Giallorossi were shocked in extra time as the underdogs stole the victory.

Now Spezia will be faced with a full-fit first-team squad away from home, and we expect Roma to seek revenge and remind critics of who has been at the top of Serie A for decades.

Roma's goal-scoring abilities are on-point this term, scoring thirty-seven goals in eighteen games. They have squandered a few goals likewise, but they have been ultra-impressive versus bottom-half sides while playing at home, winning all of them and scoring a minimum of three goals in each of those games.

Form, Mentality, Serie A Odds & Trends

  • Spezia has scored in nine of their previous ten away days.
  • Roma has scored twenty-nine goals in ten games versus Serie A teams that are 10th or below.

Final Thoughts| Serie A Betting Tips.

Given that Roma suffered an embarrassing exit out of the Coppa Italia at the hands of Spezia, I'd expect nothing less than a Roma squad willing to tear apart their lower table opposition.

Score prediction: Roma 4 – Spezia 1

Best Bet: Roma win & over 2.5 goals 1.78 [-128] at Betway (visit our Betway Review)
