Internationals friendlies usually get skipped over my most ardent punters, simply because they are so unpredictable. Managers like to tinker with personnel and lineups and friendly matches generally fail to ignite into anything very interesting. But the recent bout of international friendlies will long be remembered by one punter at Bet Victor.

Karla Draw a promising young heptathlete, who trains with Olympic gold medallist Jessica Ennis-Hill placed a £5 bet on the outcome of 10 international matches during the week, and the postgraduate student has become £50,000 richer for it.

The Sheffield Hallam University attendee went to bed with eight of her ten selections in her bet having already been settled positively in her favour. It wasn’t until the early hours of the next morning that the ten selections were completed as Panama drew at home to Canada.

The winning amount of £50,045 from a £5 stake.

Drew said: “This is a life-changing win for me. Being an MSC student, I’m not entitled to any Student Loan. I want to continue my studies and do a PhD in Sports Psychology and this will enable me to realise my dream.

“I was going to go to sleep before the final results came in but I was just too excited so I carried on refreshing the scores in bed. I only started to really believe I would do it with about 10 minutes to go of the Panama vs Canada game. I still can’t believe I have won!”

BetVictor Director of Public Relations Charlie McCann said: “Karla acknowledged on Twitter that she faced a sleepless night on Tuesday knowing that eight of her ten selections were winners but she need not have worried. Few football fans will remember the goalless draw between Panama and Canada with quite the same affection as one lucky Sheffield student and it is a fantastic story that her win will enable her to continue her postgraduate studies and long term objective of becoming a sports psychologist.”

There is no love lost between the Gunners and the Red Devils, and Arsenal v Manchester United betting should be the highlight of the weekend in the Premier League. Tempers are never far from boiling point when these two come together and with them both having something to prove to their fans on the weekend, after disappointing seasons so far, no quarter is going to be given.

Manchester United have given away three penalties this season in the Premier League, while Arsenal have conceded one. Neither have had one given in their favour though, two of six clubs yet to have had one go in their favour in the English top flight this season.

Liverpool Steven Gerrard

Liverpool v FC Basel Betting Preview

This could be a tricky night for the Reds in Switzerland, a fact which is reflected in the price that the Premier League side are only even money for the trip. FC Basel opened the group with a heavy defeat against Real Madrid, so really need to produce a special night in this one at St Jakob Park.

Online betting site Bet Victor provide good acca insurance for their customers on football matches. Place a 5+ fold on the Both Teams To Score market and if just one leg of the wager lets you down, then you will get your lost stake refunded as a free bet. New customers registering an account with Bet Victor can get up to a free £25 bet as a welcome bonus.

Liverpool v FC Basel Betting Tips

The Reds have only managed to post a win in one of their last five matches played now, that victory coming over Ludogorets on match day one of the Champions League. The Reds just about squeezed out that win at Anfield too, needing an stoppage time penalty to secure the win against the Bulgarian minnows. Liverpool have not lost any of their last nine matches against Swiss opposition (W6 D3) so maybe should be good enough for a point out of this one, which wouldn’t be a bad result. The likelihood is that this will be a high scoring gameso go over 2.5 goals at bookmaker Bet Victor, because the last five matches that Liverpool have played Swiss opposition in, have seen 29 goals in total. That’s an average of 5.8 per game.

While Mario Balotelli is struggling to make an impact in the Premier League, he was on the scoresheet against Ludogorets and is 6/5 in the anytime goalscorer market, the same quote as on Daniel Sturridge. Back in the 2002/03 first group stage in the Champions League, Basel took a 1-1 draw at Anfield, and then were leading 3-0 at Anfield in the return, before the Reds produced a remarkable second half comeback to take a 3-3 tie. It was enough though for the Swiss outfit to pip Liverpool to second place in the group. Liverpool took a 5-3 win over BSC Young Boys on their last trip to Switzerland in the 2012/13 Europa League group stage. Liverpool have never failed to score in Switzerland.

FC Basel have lost their last two European match (conceding five goals in each) and really need to bounce back after their 5-1 hammering against Real Madrid. Their overall home record against sides from England is W4 D3 L4. They of course beat Chelsea both home and away in last season’s UEFA Champions League group stage, so could be a decent outside shot in this one, especially with Liverpool struggling for rhythm at the moment. Their new boss Paulo Sousa has guided the club to seven league wins from ten this season and have the threat of Marco Streller up top who is a 2/1 quote in the anytime goalscorer market. Decent chance of both teams scoring in this game. If they raise their game and play at pace like they can, they will cause Liverpool problems.

Liverpool v FC Basel Betting Odds

Liverpool evens, draw 13/5, Basel 5/2

Liverpool v FC Basel Predictions

Would expect some goals to come, because Basel really need something and will attack. Would take a shot in the Both Teams To Score market, as well as going over 2.5 goals. As for the win, it could be worth backing Basel – Draw in the Double Chance market for a price of 5/6 with Bet Victor. Good price for a home side. They will be a threat and Liverpool aren’t on top of their game at the moment.

30th September 2014 / Lee A Jackson - Category: Champions League

Bet Victor

All eyes will be on the Etihad on Sunday evening as early season pace-setters Chelsea head north to defend their 100% start to the new season. The Blues, fired along by the goals of Diego Costa with Cesc Fabregas pulling the strings behind him, are underdogs for the game, but they are carrying a lot of confidence and form into the game.

Chelsea have won all of their opening four games to the season, and each of them by a two goal margin. The Blues won their last league trip to the Etihad 1-0 thanks to some tactical brilliance by Jose Mourinho. Will he go defensive again, or will he unleash his attacking beast to try and crush their biggest title rival?

Manchester City have hit a sticky patch of form, but have only failed to score in two of their last 71 home league matches. Sergio Aguero is a man in form and will be hoping to outshine Chelsea’s goal machine Diego Costa on Sunday. There is big firepower in the ranks of both, so the goals are expected to come at the Etihad.

If either side produces a comeback win after falling behind in the game, then online betting site Bet Victor will refund losing stakes on the correct score, first/last/anytime goalscorer market, spincast/scorecast and half time/full time markets. Tremendous promotion and new customers can get up to a free £25 bet as a welcome bonus too.

Football Betting

When Liverpool reluctantly agreed to allow striker Luis Suarez to join Barcelona, their fans could be forgiven for thinking that they needed to replace the irreplaceable. After a year when he was involved in a large proportion of their 101 league goals, and almost added a Premier League medal to his PFA and Football Writers’ Association Player of the Year Awards, there were not many in the world game who could even hope to emulate the Uruguayan. However, manager Brendan Rodgers did manage to replace Suarez in the transfer window, in more ways than one.

Mario Balotelli promises not only to find the back of the net after his transfer to Liverpool, but also to find his way into hot water. On one side, the 24 year old Italian international is a proven goalscorer. He scored 20 goals in 54 games in his last spell in England for Manchester City, and then managed an impressive 26 goals in only 43 games for AC Milan. His goals-to-game ratio for the Italian club only just falls short of that achieved by Suarez in a Liverpool shirt, who had a record of 69 in 110 matches.

Unfortunately for Rodgers, goalscoring is not the only part of Balotelli’s game, and his ability to attract controversy can only be matched by the man who he is replacing.

Balotelli controversy and not goals?

His disciplinary record for Manchester City was very poor at best, having received 4 red cards in his career there – an average of one every 13 appearances. Add in training ground bust-ups with his former manager Roberto Mancini, and a tendency to live a life without any regard for the consequences off the pitch, Liverpool have paid 16 million pounds for a player who can implode at any moment. Luis Suarez twice received a lengthy ban for his unacceptable actions on the field, first for racially abusing Patrice Evra and secondly biting the arm of Branislav Ivanovic, but if any man can emulate his time spent banned on the touchline, it is Mario Balotelli.

After finishing second in the league last season, there was an expectation for Liverpool to challenge in the top four again this season. After losing Suarez, despite bringing in a number of players, the task of achieving this seemed to be a daunting one. After seeing title rivals Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City all improve their team, there is no doubt that Rodgers felt that he needed to follow suit in order to keep his club amongst Europe’s elite. Balotelli’s is 6/5 shot with Bet Victor to go under 9/5 goals, and the bookmaker has set him at 5/6 for over/under 11.5 goals for the season.

Rodgers has faith that Balotelli has now matured, and that ‘the focus is very much on his football’. If he is proved right, then the maverick Italian might just lead his new side to another successful season. If the move backfires however, and Balotelli spends more time off the pitch than on it, then a lack of Champions League football might well be returning to Anfield next season.

There’s time to grow into the season for Balotelli, but he hasn’t looked to be the answer for Liverpool so far. Liverpool are a distant 16/1 shot at online bookmaker Bet Victor to win the Premier League and are 25/1 shots to win the Champions League. A far cry from the offensive threat that Suarez’s goals would have priced them in shorter at.

Euro 2016 Betting

Germany v Scotland Betting Preview

What a tough opener for the Scots in their Euro 2016 qualification campaign. They head out to the Allianz Arena looking for such an unlikely win that online betting site Bet Victor have Scotland at 18/1 to pick up maximum points in the game. Germany were hammered by Argentina in a friendly during the week, but will that result just have poked the bear, which Gordon Strachan’s men will feel the backlash of?

Germany are heavy 2/13 favourites to win the match with online betting site Bet Victor, who run great insurance on Both Teams To Score accas. Build a five fold or bigger on selection from that market, and if just one leg of the bet lets you down, then the bookmaker will give you a free bet up to £25

Germany v Scotland Betting Tips

How do Scotland get anything out of this trip to face the World Champions? The last time that Scotland were on show, was in a 2-2 friendly draw against Nigeria back in May. It has been a long wait for them to get back to competitive action after a disappointing World Cup 2014 qualifying campaign. This does look to be a bit of a thankless task for Gordon Strachan’s men, but they did produced some better results over the second half of last season. They rounded out their World Cup qualification with back to back wins over Macedonia and Croatia, then in a run of four friendly matches, drew against the USA and Nigeria, as well as taking away wins over Norway and Poland.

Scotland are unbeaten in their last six matches now (W4 D2). If they are going to get through their trial against Germany unscathed, you have to look at the Scottish defence to stand tall. Scotland have kept four clean sheet in their last six matches, but of course, facing sides like Germany is a whole different proposition. Scotland have scored in each of their last five away games, so worth looking at this game going over 2.5 goals pretty comfortably. The head to head between the two is much closer than you would imagine, with Germany edging it 6-4, with five drawn matches. The last time they met was in 2003 in the Euro 2004 qualifiers, with Scotland taking a 1-1 home draw and then narrowly losing 2-1 in Dortmund.

It is somewhat of a new look Germany which fell 4-0 down after 50 minutes in a friendly against Argentina in the week. The Albiceleste, inspired by Angel di Maria ran riot, even though Germany had more than enough chances to match them, and pulled a couple of goals back. When it comes to important matches though, Germany are just a different machine. They played eighteen games last season, winning eleven and losing none. The defeat against Argentina was their first loss since a friendly defeat against the USA back in the middle of 2013. Joachim Low’s men still have tremendous firepower and expect the wounded beats to respond, with Thomas Muller, Mario Gomez, Marco Reus, Mario Gotze, Andre Schurrle and Lukas Podolski all around the even money mark to score in the game.

Germany v Scotland Betting Odds

Germany 2/13, Draw 15/2, Scotland 18/1

Germany v Scotland Predictions

While Germany’s defeat against Argentina may have given the Scots a bit of hope, it may have happened at the wrong time for them. You are going to see a far more efficient Germany, who will be prepared for this game. The options that they have available is still so envious and tough to see the much improved Scots pulling off a shock. No value in Germany, so look elsewhere, where a Germany 3-1 in the Correct Score market at online bookmaker Bet Victor looks interesting at 9/1.

France v Spain Betting Preview

Another big European friendly clash on Thursday night, as France and Spain come together. They were paired together in the World Cup 2014 qualifiers and the French pushed the Spaniards hard, but still came out second best. But with their respective performances at the finals, Les Bleus are running as 6/4 favourites with online betting site Bet Victor for this one, leaving Spain handing out an unfamiliar price of 2/1.

There are some great looking international friendly matches around during the week and online bookmaker Bet Victor have good insurance for accas going, to take advantage of. Place a five fold or bigger on the Both Teams To Score market, if just one leg lets you down, then Bet Victor will give you a free bet up to £25.

France v Spain Betting Tips

The French were clearly the better of the two sides at the 2014 World Cup, with Spain embarrassingly crashing out in the group stage as defending champions. They played each other twice during World Cup qualification, with France losing 1-0 at home after taking a 1-1 draw out in Spain. So very tight margins between the two and would expect that to continue as well by backing the game to go under 2.5 goals for a price of 4/7 with online betting site Bet Victor. The last five meetings have all gone under the mark.

So how much value are France, considering that they haven’t won any of the last five games against the Spaniards. Quite a bit, despite that run of form. They will have more of the settled squad as Spain look to rebuild themselves after their World Cup humiliation. France will be without Olivier Giroud so it could be to new Chelsea man Loic Remy at 2/1 or Karim Benzema for the same price that punters will look to for value for the French to get on the scoresheet. Games like this are going to be important for France now, who won’t have competitive qualification matches as they are the hosts of Euro 2016. So Didier deschamps has to keep momentum going with friendly wins.

Where do Spain go after World Cup 2014? Vicente del Bosque has remained in his job, which is nice after all that he has done for them. Three is a much younger looking squad in attendance, with the likes of Xavi, Fernando Torres, David Villa and Xabi Alonso out of the picture. They still have an envious midfield, with the likes of Cesc Fabregas, Andres Iniesta, Isco and Koke in there. It is to the youngsters that Spain really have to look now to fill the hole. They do still look a bit short up top, with just Pedro and Diego Costa being joined by the uncapped Paco Alcacer for this one. Costa, with his great early form for Chelsea, is a 2/1 shot in the anthem goalscorer market.

France v Spain Betting Odds

France 6/4, Spain 2/1, Draw 11/5

France v Spain Predictions

Punters have to be looking forward to this one, just to see what becomes of Spain. They really have to turn to their youngsters, and they could be there for the taking by France, as it could take some time for the new Spanish set up to come together. More than enough value on France to take the win at 6/4, but don’t expect Spain to give this game away, so it will probably be tight.

Rooney-Van Persie (Manchester United)

Manchester United v Inter Milan Betting Preview

It’s more Italian opposition for Mmanchester United at the International Champions Cup. After holding off Roma for a 3-2 win in their opener, the Red Devils turn their attention to Inter Milan, who edged out Real Madrid in a penalty shoot out in their group opener. So a top of the group clash in the race for top spot. Who will take control?

Manchester United v Inter Milan Betting Tips

Well, after a flurry of three goals scored in the first half against Roma, Manchester United failed to any of the basics correctly in the second half, and Roma almost fought back for a point. Louis van Gaal’s men got out with a 3-2 win, but the new boss was heavily critical of his side, pointing fingers at his playmakers Juan Mata, Ander Herrera and Shinji Kagawa for producing poor passing displays.

Mata did score in the game, while Wayne Rooney netted a brace in the match though, and the England man is an 8/11 shot in the anytime goalscorer market against Inter.

The win over Roma followed up a 7-0 victory in a friendly against LA Galaxy, so at least it has been a positive start in terms of results for Van Gaal. But he is going to need to get his players sharper, as really only Wayne Rooney was the bright spark of the team.

The Red Devils have good history against Inter Milan as they are unbeaten in four previous competitive matches against the Italians. United have taken two wins and two draws from those four meetings and so should be backable enough to shoot for the win in this one. Would expect the game to go over 2.5 goals again, because United still look weak at the back.

Inter Milan dug in against Real Madrid in their opening group match and got their rewards. They tied up the game from a spot kick following Gareth Bale’s opener for Madrid, twenty minutes from time. That’s the way it finished, and Inter edged it in a shootout. Still, there was nothing really there from the Italians for Manchester United to really worry about, as they didn’t raise a big threat in the game against what was largely a Real Madrid B side. Their best routes to goal are going to be from set pieces against United, but other than that, a draw looks about the best option that they could achieve out of 90 minutes.

Manchester United v Inter Milan Betting Odds

Manchester United 13/10, Inter 2/1, Draw 12/5

Online betting site Bet Victor have a Back of the Net promotion which covers five fold or bigger accumulators on football betting. Get a  5-fold or bigger down with them and if just one leg of your bet lets you down then you will get your lost stake refunded as a free bet, up to the value of £25.

Manchester United v Inter Milan Predictions

Teams are still looking for some pre-season sharpness and it is hot out on the US, which is probably why United laboured in their win. Still, they have Rooney who looks sharp and there’s a match winner for you. Inter Milan are lacking one, so stick with the Red Devils at decent value to edge the victory at Bet Victor.
