Italy Serie A Betting preview

Serie A Betting - Matchday 8 Preview (Oct 20-21)

Seven games into the new Serie A season, and Fernando Orsi has become the first managerial casualty, after Livorno showed him the door, with the club bottom on just two points. With the financial stakes so high, and success demanded, rather than expected, Orsi is unlikely to be the only Italian boss sacked this season. For those bettors with high expectations, the best Serie A betting odds can be found at, up to 60% better than the opposition.

Derby of the Sun Will Be Muted Encounter

The zero tolerance attitude of Italian football authorities toward potential violence will be seen at Saturday?s Derby del Sole between southern rivals, Roma and Napoli. The fixture has been moved forward to a 5pm kick-off, and limited to season-ticket holders only. This should certainly given an added advantage to the Giallorossi, on top of playing at the Stadio Olimpico.

Roma reacted well to the 4-1 home defeat to Inter Milan, and the 1-0 loss at Old Trafford, by winning 3-0 at Parma last time out. Francesco Totti scored twice taking his tally for the season to six; the Roma captain will look to continue his club?s excellent form at home to Napoli, in the first meeting for six years. The Neapolitans haven?t won against Roma since 1993, a run of six games. After a strong start, including a 5-0 win at Udinese, Edoardo Reja?s side have recorded two consecutive defeats, and will look to halt the slide here. make Roma favourites 1.800 (-1) with Napoli 2.150 (+1).

Milan Looking for First Win at San Siro

AC Milan have been making all the headlines in recent weeks. The club suffered a bad start to their league campaign, then lost away to Celtic in the Champions League when goalkeeper, Dida, had a night to forget. The European Champions stopped the rot two weeks ago with an emphatic 5-1 win away to Roma, and boss, Carlo Ancelotti will hope that is signal they have turned the corner.

Alberto Gilardino scored his first goals for 6months, while Kaka netted twice, repeating the feat on international duty for Brazil. Ronaldo is close to a return to action, so the omens are good for the Rossoneri recording their first win of the season at the San Siro against Empoli, following three consecutive home draws. The Tuscans are struggling, failing to score in four of their last five games, and suffering back-to-back 3-0 defeats, including a demoralising exit from the UEFA Cup. make AC Milan favourites 1.909 (-1.5) with Empoli 2.02 (+1.5).

German Bundesliga betting preview

Bundesliga Betting - Matchday 10 Preview (Oct 19-21)

Though Bayern Munich are dominating this season?s Bundesliga, remaining unbeaten after nine games, it is a testament to the competitiveness of German football that newly promoted Karlsruhe are the closest challengers. This season has thrown up some real surprises, providing sharp bettors with opportunities to capitalise, especially those taking advantage of up to 60% better Bundesliga odds on offer at

Bochum?s Unbeaten Home Record Under Threat from Bayern

Bochum are one of only three Bundesliga teams with an unbeaten home record, but the visit of runaway league leaders, Bayern Munich, to the rewirpower Stadion on Saturday afternoon, could change that. VFL may not lost in front of their own fans, but they?ve only taken six points from a possible 12, and conceded three against struggling Nurnberg in their most recent home fixture. This will worry coach, Marcel Koller, hosting the division?s most potent strike-force, Luca Toni and Miroslav Klose, joint top-scorers with eight goals.

The pair should be fresh as neither were required for midweek international duty, though many of Munich?s squad did represent their country, including Frank Ribery who was on target against the Faroes Islands. Bochum also have a few of their own foreign stars. Stanislav Sestak scored twice for Slovakia against San Marino, while Matias Concha helped Sweden to a 3-0 win over Liechtenstein. They will both need to be at the top of their game again on Saturday, while with a much bigger squad at his disposal, Ottmar Hitzfeld will have the luxury of shuffling his pack if necessary. make Bayern Munich favourites 2.04 (-1 & -1.5) with Bochum 1.893 (+1 & +1.5).

Will the Bremen Goal Rush Continue?

After an indifferent start to the season, Werder Bremen have suddenly hit a rich vein of goal-scoring form. Thomas Schaaf?s side have scored 16 times in their last four games. Such is the form of creative midfielders Diego and Hugo Almeida ? with eight goals between them this season - that the pair have been linked with big-money transfers. For now, though, they are focused on maintaining Werder?s excellent recent league form, hosting Hertha Berlin at the Weserstadion on Saturday.

Hertha will be looking to end a three game run without victory which has also seen them lose Brazilian defender, Lucio, with cruciate ligament damage. Having briefly topped the table in September, the poor recent run has seen Die Alte Dame (Old Lady) slip into mid-table. Coach, Lucien Favre, will be eager to stop the slide, but the omens from last season aren?t encouraging, as Berlin suffered a 7-2 aggregate loss against Werder Bremen, including a 3-1 defeat in this fixture. price Werder Bremen favourites 1.800 (-1) with Hertha Berlin 2.150 (+1) ? a market priced to only 102%.

Premiership Betting Preview Matchday 10

Premiership Betting - Matchday 10 Preview (Oct 20-22)

With less than ten fixtures played, Bolton?s Sammy Lee has joined Jose Mourinho on the Premier League?s managerial scrap-heap. There are certain to be more casualties, sooner rather than later, in a league where the financial stakes are so high, failure cannot be tolerated for long. Premiership bettors shouldn?t tolerate anything but the best Premiership betting odds, usually found at

Managerless Trotters Face Stern Test at League Leaders

After just nine games in charge of Bolton Wanderers, Sammy Lee has left the club by mutual consent. Having spent the last four seasons mounting a realistic challenge for a Champions League place, Bolton?s current position - one place off the foot of the table - has forced the club to act. Lee succeeded Sam Allardyce in the summer, who moved onto Newcastle, giving the impression that he felt the club had hit a glass ceiling. As the search for a replacement begins, the Trotters - with just one win this season - must prepare for a visit to unbeaten Premiership leaders, Arsenal, under stand-in coach, Archey Knox.

The Gunners have a perfect record at the Emirates Stadium this season, but left it late in their most recent home game against Sunderland. Robin Van Persie scored the decisive goal late on in the 3-2 win, after the Londoners had relinquished a 2-0 lead. So long as Arsene Wenger gets his multi-national squad back in one-piece from international duty, particularly Cesc Fabregas, the most influential player this season, Arsenal will be strongly fancied to maintain their position at the top of the league. However, bettors should note that Bolton have drawn on four of their last seven away trips to Arsenal, while losing the remaining games by a single goal margin. price Arsenal favourites 1.990 (-1.5) with Bolton 1.935 (+1.5).

Torres Doubtful for Merseyside Derby Debut

Liverpool?s record signing and current top-scorer ? Fernando Torres ? is a major doubt to make his debut in a Merseyside Derby. He injured himself training for Spain, and is in race to be fit for Saturday?s key game at Goodison Park. The Reds will be looking to end a poor recent run that has seen them win just one of their last seven league and European fixtures. Rafa Benitez can not afford to see his side lose further ground on Arsenal, with several clubs including Everton breathing down their neck, defeat could see them slip to mid-table. The Toffees are without Andy Johnson, but he has been in dire form in any case. The club were given a huge boost by making the UEFA Cup group stages, but would love to top that off with a repeat of last season?s 3-0 home win against arch-rivals, Liverpool. price Liverpool marginal favourites 2.140 (-0.5) with Everton 1.806 (+0.5).

Progressive Villans Ready to Thwart Red Devils

After an unlucky defeat in the dying seconds of their opening game at Villa Park, Aston Villa have recorded four consecutive home wins, including the scalp of Chelsea. The Midlands? club certainly seem progressive in Martin O?Neill?s second season in charge, but must lift their game further against one of their least favourite opponents, Manchester United. The Red Devils have won the last eleven meetings of the clubs in all competitions, and Villa last beat them in 1999. After struggling for goals, United finally opened the flood gates last week against Wigan with a 4-0 win, featuring two goals from Cristiano Ronaldo, who looks to be back to his best. United are however, still without Carrick and Hargreaves in central midfield, so with Villa in bouyant mood, this game is likely to be a much closer encounter. price Man Utd marginal favourites 1.833 (-0.5) with Aston Villa 2.100 (+0.5).

Spain - Primera Division Betting preview

Spain La Liga Betting - Matchday 8 Preview (Oct 21-22)

Real Madrid and Barcelona remain the only unbeaten sides in Spain?s La Liga, but with both sides facing tough away fixtures this weekend that could be about to change. Their multi-national squads will have been spread around the four corners of the globe, during the recent international break, so bettors check for significant injury news, before taking advantage of up to 60% better La Liga betting odds at

Real Madrid Face Stern Test at Espanyol

Espanyol may suffer in the shadow of their more illustrious Catalan neighbours, Barcelona, but the quality of their side was shown in Spain?s recent win away to Denmark. The Parakeets captain and striker, Raul Tamudo, scored the first and assisted for the second, while midfielder, Albert Riera, chipped in with the third. The side are currently fifth looking to regain entry to Europe, having lost to Sevilla in last season?s UEFA Cup final.

Espanyol host Real Madrid on Saturday evening at the Estadio Olimpic Lluis Companys, looking to inflict the first defeat on the Primera division champions. The Galacticos returned to training from international duties around the globe, with Wesley Sneijder continuing his excellent form, scoring an important goal in Holland?s win over Slovenia, while defender Sergio Ramos was on target for Spain. Coach, Bernd Schuster, has shown his fondness for rotation, and he may shuffle the pack again, depending on the condition of his returning players. make Real Madrid slight favourites 2.100 (-0.5) with Espanyol 1.833 (+0.5).

Henry & Messi Key to Barca?s Away Day Blues

The biggest game in this weekend?s La Liga schedule is arguably between Villarreal and Barcelona, at the Madrigal Stadium. Barca are unbeaten on the road, while the Yellow Submarine have won four of their last five league games, lifting them to third in the table, immediately behind, the Catalans. Ex-Man Utd striker, Giuseppe Rossi, has made quite an impact in his first season in Spain, with five goals already to his name, one of several successful summer signings.

Lionel Messi and Thierry Henry continued their fantastic recent club form while on international duty. Henry became France?s all-time top-scorer, while Messi ? La Liga?s top marksman ? was also on target for Argentina in their 2-0 win in Venezuela. The pair?s developing partnership will be crucial to their chances of regaining the title. Barca lost this fixture 2-0 last season, and though unbeaten on the road this term, Frank Rijkaard?s side have already dropped four points from a possible nine. make Barcelona favourites 1.862 (-0.5) with Villarreal 2.07 (+0.5).

Euro 2008 Qualifiers - England, Ireland, Scotland

60% Better Euro 2008 Betting Odds at

Euro 2008 Betting - England v Estonia Preview

England resume their Euro 2008 qualification campaign on Saturday with what should be a straight forward task at home to Estonia. Steve McClaren successfully negotiated two tricky home ties against Israel and Russia in September, beating both sides by an identical 3-0 score-line. The Three Lions should be capable of another comfortable victory against the tiny Baltic Republic, having already beaten them in Tallinn, by the same score-line.

That defeat spelled the end for Estonia coach, Jelle Goes, replaced by 60 year old Dane, Viggo Jensen. Jensen has at least got four points on the board courtesy of a home victory over Andorra - the only team below them in Group E - and a draw in their last game, away to Macedonia. The Estonians will no doubt enjoy the experience of playing at the new Wembley; this fixture captured the public's imagination ever since the schedule was announced.

The Three Lions will be without several key players through injury such as David Beckham, Andy Johnson, Owen Hargreaves, Emile Heskey; while McClaren may rest those recently returned from the treatment room including Michael Owen and Frank Lampard, and those players who are one yellow card away from suspension i.e. Ashley Cole, Joe Cole, Rio Ferdinand and John Terry. It is however, almost impossible to build a case for anything other than a very one-sided encounter, in England's favour.

Estonia's last away win was in October 2005 against Luxembourg, and they have no history of upsetting an established national away from home. Tim Carter, is Sunderland and Estonia's goalkeeping coach, giving him a unique perspective on the game. "England could lose another 100 to injury and still have a squad bigger than ours". The hardest task will probably fall to inexperienced goalkeeper, Sergei Pareiko - normally third choice or worse - who looks likely to play unless ex-Sunderland cat, Mart Poom, recovers from a back problem.

The only possible mitigation against the argument for an England win would be founded on Macedonia's success in frustrating Steve McLaren's side at Old Trafford, around the same time last year. However, given England's recent form a repeat result would be an even greater shock. Asian Handicap specialists,, price England 1.800 (-2.5) with the visitors 2.150 (+2.5).

Euro 2008 Betting - Previews of Games for Ireland & Scotland

Scottish teams recently enjoyed one of their most successful weeks in European domestic football. Celtic beat Champions League holders AC Milan at Celtic Park, Rangers recorded a dramatic 3-0 away to Lyon, while Aberdeen progressed to the group stages of the UEFA Cup. Such results have led former Italian boss, Marcello Lippi, to comment that Scotland are Europe's up-and-coming nation. Surely the Tartan Army's recent win in Paris was the biggest hint that Scottish football is approaching a renaissance.

A Nation Expects But Can the Scots Deliver?

The last major international tournament that Scotland qualified for was the 2000 World Cup in France won by the host nation. It could Les Bleus that loses out should Scotland qualify from Group B, but the problem with Scotland is that they can be tough opponents when given little or no chance ? as in the recent game at the Parc des Princes ? but often disappoint when expectation is raised. Make no mistake the whole of Scotland no expects on Saturday against the Ukraine.

It is difficult therefore, to know what to expect of Alex McLeish's heroes at Hampden. Though they currently top the section, they still have Italy to play at home, and Georgia away, so must get something out of this game. However, they are without Paul Hartley, a pivotal figure in recent performances. Oleg Blokhin's side have only a slim chance of qualification, and he may look to blood youngster building to the 2012 event on home soil. Andriy Shevchenko and Andriy Voronin have however, been used sparingly by their clubs so may appreciate the opportunity to play, particularly as the game requires little travel. price Scotland favourites on their Asian Handicap betting 1.775 (0/scratch & -0.5) with the Ukraine 2.190 (0/scratch & +0.5).

Stan & Ireland at Last Chance Saloon

Republic of Ireland manager, Steve 'Stan' Staunton, is running out of chances to prove his worth as the national team's manager. After a poor qualification campaign, including one point from the two recent crucial fixtures in Slovakia and the Czech Republic, fate is out of Staunton's hands. Though mathematically Ireland can still make it to the Euro 2008 finals ? they must win their remaining fixtures, and hope the Czechs lose all theirs - Saturday's game at Croke Park against Germany is really about pride, and building for the future. The venue is normally reserved for Gaelic games but is a temporary home for football, while Landsdowne Road is being renovated. It provides a very special atmosphere and Ireland are unbeaten in two fixtures without conceding.

There is also a knock-on effect for World Cup qualification, where seeding relies on the number of wins from this campaign. Though Staunton's contract runs until 2010, it seems unlikely that he'll remain in charge unless Ireland start winning beginning with this game against the runaway leaders of Group D. Joachim Low's side need only a draw in Dublin to guarantee passage to Austria and Switzerland next summer, where they are rated one of the favourites. The only real absentee for the Germans is Miroslav Klose - the Bundesliga's joint-top goal-scorer ? otherwise Low has named a strong squad recalling Werder Bremen trio Torsten Frings, Tim Borowski and Clemens Fritz, along with Stuttgart's striker, Mario Gomez. make Germany favourites 2.060 (-0.5) with Ireland 1.870 (+0.5).
