Papi’s Tips: Freiburg To Score First, Cork City To Score and more…


After I missed almost all my predictions on Wednesday (it was that terrible), I decided to take a break from predictions yesterday (Thursday).

In a way that helped to see things from a different perspective and to discover what went wrong.

In this game of taking risks, I’ll advice you try this technique too. When you’re on a losing streak, sit back and try to discover what’s going on instead of trying to force a win.

Let’s take a look today’s tip:

FC Kaiserslautern vs RB Leipzig (Germany 2. Bundesliga)
Analysis: Leipzig have scored 6 goals in their last 5 games. They scored consecutively in their last 4 games.

My Prediction: RB Leipzig To Score.

Papi’s Tips: Burnley To Score, Nice To Win Either Half and more…


The weekend’s here. Thank God it’s Friday!

With more games to choose from, there are endless possibilities to win… and to lose. Matter-of-factly, you tend to lose more when the weekend comes.

Want to know why?

Because there’s a whole lot of games to choose from. So many games out there calling for your attention. And too much information affect decisions that you make.

That’s why I’ve selected 4 games to feature this Friday. They’re not necessarily the best of the bunch but they’re great games with plenty of possible opportunities.

That’s why I’m here for you. So, let’s start.

Freiburg vs Duisburg (2. Bundesliga)
Analysis: Frieburg is topping the table and they have won 4 of their last 5 games at home. They don’t have scoring problems as they’ve managed to score 10 goals and conceded 6 in those last 5 home games. Duisburg, on the other hand, are rock-bottom of the league. They’ve won once and drawn 4 times in their last 5 away games. In those 5 away games, they’ve scored 7 times and conceded 6 times.

My Prediction: With both teams finding it easy to score goals, there should be plenty of goals in this game. So I’m going for Over 1.5 Goals.

Other Predictions:
– Freiburg To Win Either Half.
– Freiburg To Score First.
– Duisburg To Score.

Preston End vs Burnley (England Championship)
Analysis: The season is almost over and teams are scrambling for every available points. Burnley, currently 2nd placed, will be looking to win this one in their bid to return to the English Premier League. And their away form says it all. They have not lost in their last 5 away games: Winning 4 and drawing once. They have scored 12 times and conceded 7 goals on the road. Preston End is 10th. They have drawn 3 of their last 5 games at home, winning just one and losing once. They’ve scored as much goals in that period (5) as they’ve conceded.

My Prediction: With Burnley chasing an automatic EPL qualification and with their goalscoring record, scoring a goal should not be too hard. Therefore, I predict: Burnley To Score.

Other Predictions:
– Burnley Win Either Half
– Handicap 0:1

Derry City vs Bohemians FC (Ireland)
Analysis: Derry is 2nd on the table. Bohemians occupy the 8th spot. Derry have won all of their last 3 games at home while Bohemians have only won once in their last 3 away games. Derry City have, on the average, scored at least 2 goals per game. They’ve conceded just 1. The Bohemians.seem to not know how to score away goals. They’ve only scored twice in their last 3 away games but they’ve concede 6 goals.

My Prediction: Derry To Score. You know why? They have scored in every of their home games this season.

Other Predictions:
– Derry To Win Either Half

Nice vs Reims (France Ligue 1)
Analysis: It’s some sort of mid-table clash. Nice have won 3 of their last 5 home games while Reims have lost 4 of their last 5 away games. Nice has an impressive goalscori g form. They’ve scored 9 goals and conceded just 4 at home. On the road, Reims have conceded almost thrice as much as they’ve scored (scored 5, conceded 13).

My Prediction: Nice To Score First is the most obvious outcome that comes to mind. And my reason? Reims, in their last 4 home games, have succeeded in conceding the first goals of those games.

Other Predictions:
– Nice To Score
– Nice To Win Either Half.


Jimmy's Treble: One of my readers have already used this tips. Have you?

There you have it! 4 games with plenty of options to choose from. So, go on and have fun.

Bonus: One of my readers (Jimmy) asked for my opinion on the St. Johnstone vs Aberdeen game. I discovered that the away team have a knack for scoring goals when they’re away from home. So, as a bonus, I predict Aberdeen To Score.

Select the ones you’re comfortable with and make yourself some extra cash.

P.S: Do not bet with money you can’t afford to lose.

Wishing you all the best! Cheers to a great weekend!

With love,

Papi’s Betting Tips: Molde To Score First, Vaduz To Score and more…


Speculating on midweek games can be very complex because of two things:

– There are not enough games unlike the weekend.
– You have to make the most of the little available which means probability of error increases (arguments are welcome though).

But yesterday, I recorded a huge success (92% win!). Of all 13 predictions, I got just one wrong.

Not bad for an analyst trying to give you the best eh?

Today, I’m featuring three games with plenty of betting options to choose from.

So, let’s dive right in.

Molde vs Vaalerenga (Norway)
Analysis: Molde is 3rd on the table and they entertain 13th-placed Vaalerenga. Although the league is only 5 games old, Molde have already earned 11 points so far while their opponents have only 3. Molde’s home form has been impressive too. They’ve won their two games at home, scoring 5 times and conceding 3 goals. Vaalerenga have not won any game away from home. They’ve lost all two games away from home, scoring just once and conceding 3 goals. Of course this game has a Molde Win writtten all over it but as always, Papi tries to fish out the sweeter, less-riskier deals for his darling readers (thank me later). So, my predictions?

My Predictions: So far in this young season, Vaalerenga have ALWAYS conceded the first goal in all their away games. Coincidentally, Molde have learnt how to score early goals in their games this season, some as early as the 1st minute! In view of this, I’m predicting Molde To Score First.

Other Predictions:
– Molde Win Either Half.
– Molde Score First and Win.
– Molde To Score in First Half (although this one’s a long shot).

Thun vs FC Vaduz (Switzerland Super League)
Analysis: Thun is 7th on the log while Vaduz is sitting at the bottom of the table. Although they’re 10th on the log, Vaduz have succeeded in scoring in 4 of their last 5 away games. Coincidentally, all those games ended with both teams scoring. Now, guess what? Thun’s last seven games (4 league games and 3 friendlies) ended with both teams scoring! Of course the most obvious expected outcome is Both Teams to Score right?

My Prediction: Vaduz being bottom of the table, it’s almost certain they can’t win this game. That’s why the odds of winning are against them. But they know how to score away from home. And that’s why I’m backing a FC Vaduz To Score outcome.

Other Predictions:
– Over 1.5 goals.
– Both Teams To Score.
– Thun Win Either Half.

Lausanne vs Wohlen (Switzerland Challenge League)
Analysis: Lausanne are currently at the top of the league. In their last 5 home games, they’ve won 2, drawn 2 and lost just once. They have also scored 8 goals and conceded 7. Wohlen on the other hand are not so good away from home. In their last 5 games away, they’ve won just 1 game and lost 3. They’ve also conceded almost twice as many goals as they’ve scored away from home (5 goals scored, 9 conceded).

My Prediction: This league is a random one and any team can spring surprises. So instead of backing any team to win, I’ll go for Over 1.5 Goals. The aim is to go for the less riskier but also profitable possible outcome.

Other Predictions:
– Lausanne To Win Either Half.
– Lausanne To Score First Goal.

I overlooked the Arsenal game on purpose, just in case you’re wondering. You don’t play every game in sight if you want to make money out of betting.

These analysis are meant to help you make smarter betting decisions. Be sure to make further analysis before you make your move.

As I always say, always go for the possible outcome with the highest probabity of happening. That is, out of all, choose the result/outcome that is most likely to happen.

Best of luck! And remember, Do not bet with what you can’t afford to lose.

Juventus to Score First, Man. Utd to Score Under 2.5 Goals and other Betting Tips


Bet Smart and Win

Yesterday, I started the Betting Series on the blog and the first feature game was Newcastle vs Manchester City.

Of my seven predictions, I was able to get 4 right (three-and-a-half I think). Not bad. In case you missed it, you can preview it here.

In this post, I will be analyzing some select games. I’ll be breaking down the statistics and using them to make predictions for possible outcomes.

So, let’s get started!

Juventus vs Lazio (Serie A)
Analysis: Juventus are top of the Serie A table and they face eighth-placed Lazio. Although Juventus are six points ahead of the next team on the table, they will be looking to wrap up the league as fast as they can. This is more reason for them to want to win this game. They have the advantage in this game too! Why? The Turin Boys are playing at home. In their last 5 games at home, they haven’t lost a single game. THEY HAVE WON ALL the games, scoring 9 times and conceding only 2 goals. Lazio, on the other hand, have won only one of their last 5 games away. The rest, they drew. They have scored 5 times and have conceded only twice in their last five games away.

My Prediction: From the above stats, picking a Juve win is a bit dicey because of Lazio’s away form. To be on the safe side (although the odds may be small), go for a Juventus Win or Draw (Juventus 1X)

Other Predictions:
– Because of Lazio’s poor goalscoring abilities away from home (5 goals in their last 5 away games), Juventus is likely to score the first goal of the game. That is, Juventus to Score First.
– Lazio may not score in the game so there’s a possibility that both teams will not score. That is, Both Teams Score No.

West Ham vs Watford (EPL)
Analysis: West Ham is sixth on the table. Watford is 12th on the log. West Ham haven’t lost any of their last 5 home games, winning 3 and drawing twice. Watford have not been as lucky as the Hammers away from home. They’ve won just 2 of their last 5 games away, losing the remaining 3. Their goalscoring form has been poor too. They’ve only scored 3 times in their last 5 away games and have conceded 7 goals. That’s conceding at least a goal every game.

My Prediction: I would have advised a Both Teams to Score selection for this game because of West Ham’s habit for conceding goals at home but… Watford’s poor goal scoring record may not let that happen. So, one of the most likely outcomes of this game is West Ham to Score First.

Other Predictions:
West Ham to Score.
– West Ham to win Either Halves.
– West Ham to Win or Draw.

Manchester United vs Crystal Palace (EPL)
Analysis: Man. Utd are currently 5th on the log table and are eyeing a UEFA Champions League spot. So they may just win this one. Luckily enough, the stats are in their favour. In their last 5 games at home, they haven’t lost any game. They have won all, scoring 9 goals and conceding 2. Another reason for a Man. Utd win? Crystal Palace’s TERRIBLE away form. They haven’t won any of their last 5 away games. They have drawn 4 and lost 1. But they know how to score having scored 8 goals in those last 5 away games and conceding 9 goals.

My Prediction: Of course the most likely outcome is a Man. Utd win. But I won’t go for that (you can if you want to). What I want to go for is Man. Utd Under 2.5 Goals. That is, Man. Utd will not score more than 2 goals in this game. Why this choice you may ask? It is because, in Man. Utd’s last 5 Premier League games at home, they’ve only scored 3 goals in a game once (against Arsenal). Simple.

Other Predictions:
– Man. Utd to Win or Draw (1X)
– Over 1.5 Goals
– Of course, Man. Utd to score
– Both Teams to Score Yes (although I’m a bit skeptical about this one.)

There you have it! Plenty of options to choose from.

Oh! I almost forgot. There’s a bonus game. You can pick Chievo Verona to Win or Draw (1X). Verona are unbeaten in their last 5 games, just in case you’re wondering why I picked this game.

So, have fun, make your own calculations and be sure to select the outcome that is the most likely to happen.

By the way, do not play with what you can’t afford to lose. Don’t ever forget that.

Manchester City to Win and other Betting Tips for the Newcastle vs Man. City Game.


Keep Calm and Select: Choose from the wide range of options

Manchester City travel to Newcastle to play their Premier League game in hand today.

If you will be betting on this game (at least you want to, that’s why you’re reading this), you should consider the following tips before making any move to add this game to your betslip.

Manchester City is currently third on the EPL table and they’re up against a Newcastle side that’s 19th on the table. The most obvious thing that comes to mind for anybody is a Manchester City “straight win.”

Why not? Man. City have only lost once in their last 5 games. They are firing on all fronts. They’re trying to keep a distance between them and Arsenal, currently 4th on the table. They have a fit enough team that seem to be scoring goals for fun. De Bruyne is back and is assisting all the goals they have failed to score for a while.

My Prediction: A straight win for Man. City is non-negotiable (of course football is still funny and anything can happen). They have been scoring goals effortlessly. And it is goals that win games. Aguero is dangerous again. They have kept it tight at the back too! They have only conceded 3 goals in their last 5 games. Add to that the fact that they’re trying to avoid playing the UEFA Champions League Qualifiers, and you can understand why they’ll win.

Other Predictions: Although Newcastle is at the bottom of the table, they’ve learnt how to score goals in their games. In their last 5 games at home, they have scored 8 times and conceded 5 times. Doing the maths, there’s the possibility that they score a goal against the Citizens. But it is highly unlikely that they win the game, all things being equal.

With the above stats, the following outcomes are likely:
Man. City to win. If in doubt, you can pick Man. City to win or draw.
– Man. City to score first goal.
– Over 1.5 goals.
– Both Teams to Score NO. X
– Over 0.5 goals in second half. X
– Man. City to win either half. X
– Aguero to score anytime.

Select the one that best fits your betting plan and thank me later 😉

Remember to play with only what you can afford to lose. And try as much as you can to minimize your risk. Go for the most likely event to happen.

All the best!
