National cup matches all over Europe

I going to bet very carefully today. The maximum amount I will bet is 2€, which means that this month I will end up with a profit. Depending on the result of today it will be 0.11€ or more. Also I will only bet on soccer. My picks for tennis this month were 100% correct.

Today there are a lot of cup games going around in Europe and a complete matchday in Italy.

Coup de France
Montceau - Lens (Lost (1-0))
Besides the first round against Nancy, the road to the quarter final was very easy for Lens. Also they should qualify for the semis.

Beker van Belgie
Club Brugge - KVK Kortrijk (Won(2-1))
I cannot imagine that Brugge is going to loose this game. Probably over will also be a good bet. The cup is the only chance for Brugge to win something this year, maybe it is also the only chance to play within a European Cup next year.

Calcio
Inter (1) - Udinese (8) (Lost (1-1))
Inter still has to loose at home this season and this won't happen tonight.

My bets:
A 1€ bet on the combo Club Brugge and Lens with a possible pay-out of 1.65€. -> lost
A 1€ bet on Inter with a possible pay-out of 1.28€. -> lost


Total at stake: 2.00€
Possible pay-out: 2.93€
Actual pay-out: 0€
Profit/loss this post: 2
Profit/loss this month: 0.11

ATP Dubai and Coup de France

It was not a big profit yesterday but it was one.
Today there are not much interesting soccer games and for the moment only one tennis game in which I have confidence.

Coup de France
Marseille - Vannes (Won(5-0))
I guess no explanation needed!


ATP

Youzhny, M(18) - Nieminen, J(19) (Won(2-1))
Interesting odds for Youzhny, who is playing like a dream at the moment. Last week he won the tournament of Rotterdam in which he defeated 3 player within the top 20 of the world and the number 8 (Ljubicic). I don't see any reason why he would not continue his winning form.

My bets:
A 1€ bet on Yourhny with a possible pay-out of 1.50€. -> won
A 1.07€ bet on Marseille with a possible pay-out of 1.28€. -> won

Total at stake: 2.07€
Possible pay-out: 2.78€
Actual pay-out: 2.78

A quick tennis bet!

Don't know what to think about the weekend. I expected to make a profit but it was a loss.
I can understand the loss of Schalke but not the draw of Feyenoord and Valencia.

No much betting this week. Within Belgium Megabike will start on Saturday, so a lot of time will be put in making my teams. Doing better than last year is almost impossible after winning a race and getting a second place in another one. But there's no shame in trying.

A quick bet for today:
Oprandi, R - Mirza, S -> @ 1.27 -> Won (0-2)
Hantuchova, D - Castano, C -> @ 1.13 -> Won (2-0)

My tennis record for this month is still perfect. I like to keep it like this. So girls do your utmost best :). I also need profit on this combo, otherwise I will go into the red figures.
My bet:
A 1.44€ bet on the combo as described above with a possible pay-out of 2.07€. -> won

Total at stake: 1.44€
Possible pay-out: 2.07€
Actual pay-out: 2.07€
Profit/loss this post: 0.63€

The tips for this weekend matches

Pretty satisfied with my combo of yesterday. Not only that went fine but also the surgery that my dad had was a complete success.

For this weekend I have selected 8 matches and the stake for this weekend will be 4€. Maybe I should not bet anymore this month. That way I can end the month with a profit for the first time since the opening of my blog. I also will update the stats after this post.

Jupiler league
Club Brugge (5) - Sint Truiden (13) (Won (1-0))
Alot has been going on on both clubs this week. The head Coach of Sint Truiden tried to resign cause there is not enough quality within the team and Brugge is still licking its wounds after the defeat of last weekend at Bergen. while Sint Truiden has a reputation as giant killer they don't do these often away from home. They even rarely win away from home. Club is were you best put your money on. The head to head stats say it all!!

KRC Genk (1) - Roeselare (8) (Won(3-0))
Roeselare is the surprise of the Jupiler League this season. While everybody expected them around place 12-14, they are standing8th. They only won once away from home this season but that was at Club Brugge. KRC Genk at home is like a bastion. they didn't loose at home this season and only drew twice. Shouldn't be a problem for Genk, cause if they win there is a chance that they will run away a few points from Anderlecht (I wouldn't place money on Anderlecht away at Lokeren).

Bundesliga
Bayern Münich (4) - Wolfsburg (10) (Won(2-1))
After the defeat at Aachen there is no other option then winning for Bayern and I believe they will. The 3-2 loss at Real will be the moral booster.also the Head to Head stats gives an indication that it will be very difficult for Wolfsburg to go home with one point or more.

Schalke 04 (1) - Bayer Leverkussen (8) (Lost(0-1))
Schalke has won its 5 last home games and will extend this streak with another one this weekend cause Leverkussen has problems with winning away from home.

Premier League

Liverpool (3) - Sheffield United (15) (Won(4-0))
This should not be a problem for Liverpool. Certainly not after the win at Nou camp. And to this the facts that Sheffield has one of the worst offence stats away from home and the Liverpool only conceded 3 goals at home and you know the winner!

Eredivisie
Ado Den Haag (18) - Feyenoord (5) (Lost(3-3))
Really nice odds for Feyenoord. In 80% of the cases they should win this match so therefor it is worthwhile to take the risk. However Feyenoord never won at Ado, but everything there is a first time even for Feyenoord in this season. Feyenoord lost their last three away games also, while ADO could win within their last 4 home games. Still my money is on Feyenoord.

Primera Divsion
Barcelona (1) - Atlethic de Bilbao (17) (Won(3-0))
No problem to guess the winner here, I guess! This weekend an excellent chance for Barcelona to take some distance from Sevilla who have to play on Getaffe.

Gimnastic (20) - Valencia (3) (Lost(1-1))
Everybody is telling that Gimnastic is not good enough for the Primera Division and I share that idea. The odds for Valencia are nice, nice enough to place a bet on. Cause don't forget that they only won 4 away games this season.

My bets:
A 1€ bet on the combo Barca and Feyenoord with a possible pay-out of 2.26€. -> Lost
A 1€ bet on the combo Valencia, Club Brugge and Bayern M. with a possible pay-out of 2.92€. -> Lost
A 1€ bet on the combo KRC Genk and Liverpool with a possible pay-out of 1.63€. -> Won
And a 1€ bet on the single Schalke 04 with a possible pay-out of 1.70€. -> Lost

Total at stake: 4€
Possible pay-out: 8.51€
Actual pay-out: 1.63€
Profit/loss this post: 2.37€
Profit/loss this month: 0.77

Uefa Cup: double chance combo

A little bit disappointed by Barcelona yesterday. I'm think that barcelona wouldn't have lost if their goalie did not make the stupid mistake. But that's life and there are more important issues, like the surgery of my father today.

Due to this real life issues a quick combo today with almost all combos:
AZ - Fenerbache -> 1x -> 1.12 -> won
Sevilla - Steaua -> 1 -> 1.33 -> won
PSG - AEK -> 1x -> 1.16 -> won
Osasuna - Bordeaux -> 1x -> 1.22 -> won
Celta de vigo - Spartak -> 1x -> 1.20 -> won
Total: 2.53€

My bet:
A 1€ bet on the combo above. -> won

The champions League part II

A beautiful game today between the two last winners of the Champions League. Don't miss it. Of course also a difficult game to bet on, but still I'm confident that I can predict the winner! To base my prediction I will do for once an extensive post. Don't get bored cause there is some really nice info in this post, which may change your own prediction!

Watch the game of PSV last night against Arsenal. I don't think that PSV stole the victory. Arsenal was nowhere is the second half. PSV had more chances on 2-0 then Arsenal on 1-1. Also a pity that AC Milan was not capable of scoring, while they should have.

Barcelona - Liverpool (Lost(1-2))
* Barcelona arrived at this stage after taking second place in Group A behind Chelsea, while secured their last-16 place on match day 4, as group C winners, already.
* Barcelona already faced an English team at home 22 times. They won 13 times, drawing 8 and just lost ONE. But the nice part is that this loss was against Liverpool in the 1975/76 UEFA cup semi-finals. After which Liverpool won the Uefa Cup.
* The previous encounter was during the group stages of the CL in 2001/02. When it was a scoreless draw at Nou camp and a 3-1 victory for the Reds at Anfield.
* Benitez has never lost against Barcelona, but I feel that tonight will be the first time.
* In the ten previous visits of Liverpool to Spain they won 5 times and just lost on 2 occasions.
* Within the group stage Barcelona conceded only four goals, while scoring 12.
* Liverpool conceded 5 goals and scored 11 and only lost 3-2 in Galatasaray.
* Sunday evening Barca lost 2-1 at Valencia, who will face Inter today!
* Liverpool lost their last away game against Newcastle United with 2-1.
* Eto'o will not play. The official statement is that he lacks match rhythm. While probably the cause is the fight with Rijkaard and Ronaldino.

Inter - Valencia (Lost(2-2))
Just trust me on this one. i don't see Valencia winning or drawing at Inter. Inter hasn't lost a competition home game this season but lost their first home game in this CL campaign against Bayern (0-2). After this game they only concede 3 other goals in the remaining 5 matches.

Total at stake: 1€
Possible pay-out: 3.32€
Actual pay-out: 0€

Champions League Part 1

The champions league continues after the winter recess with some beautiful matches like Real Madrid - Bayern Munich on Tuesday and Barcelona - Liverpool on Wednesday. But even PSV - Arsenal and Inter - Valencia are probably nice games to watch.

Celtic - AC Milan (Lost (0-0))
I know, I know at can hount at Celtic Park. They won 9 out of their 12 home games in the CL. But Milan has won 6 out of 8 in Scotland in the CL. So why wouldn't they do it again. Also it is going to be a gala match for Paolo Maldini who can play in his 100th CL game. 6 less than altime leader Raul.


Lille - Manchester United (Won(0-1))
This one shouldn't be a problem for Manchester U. They are playing like a dream at the moment. Lille only scored three times in their last 5 matches. Not very impressive and not a morale booster to face Man U, who scored 13 times in their last 5 games and only allowed 2 goals against. No Man U is in my eyes a big favorite.

Top 5 appearances in a CL game:
Raul (Real Madrid) - 106
Roberto Carlos (Real Madrid) - 105
David Beckham (Real Madrid) - 102
Oliver Kahn (Bayern Münich) - 100
Paolo Maldini (Ac Milan) - 99

My bets:
A 1€ combo on Ac Milan and Manchester United, with a possible payout of: 4.78€. -> Lost

Total at stake: 1€
Possible pay-out: 4.78€

Uefa cup and tennis

I'm still on the winning side. Yahoo!!

Today the bets will be a mix of Uefa Cup football and Tennis. I will avoid the combos for today. The games in the Uefa Cup will be close and it is not easy to predict the winner. I only have confidence in one match. I admit that these isn't my fanciest post, but a win is a win.










CSKA Moskva - Maccabi Haifa (Lost(0-0))
CSKA reached this round of the Uefa Cup after ending at the third place within the CL group. Haifa qualified pretty easy in their UEFA cup group after a draw at Livorno. But now, I don't think they have a chance is Moskva.




ATP San Jose
Becker B. (49) - Vemic (364) (Won(2-1))
Pretty nice odds for such a ranking difference. I tried to find the angles but couldn't. Vemic played only one ATP tournament this year (Delray Beach) and lost in the first round against Sanguinetti, who was eliminated in the following round by Becker. This should not be a problem for Becker.

WTA



WTA Bangalore
Sucha (94) - Mirza (46) (Won(0-2))
I believe in Mirza. But Sucha already had defeated a player for the top 25, so why coulnd't see win for the number 46. Mirza is also on a roll, she reached already twice the semis (Pattaya and Hobart). No, Mirza will win.

My bets:
A 1€ bet on the combo Mirza and Becker with a possible pay-out of 1.66€.
A 1€ single bet on CSKA with a possible payout of 1.33€.

Total at stake: 2€
Possible pay-out: 2.99€
Actual pay-out: 1.66€

Tennis, tennis and again tennis

Some interesting tennis matches. Lets see if I can increase my profit even further so that I have a small buffer for the Uefa CUP games of this week.



ATP San Jose
Udomchoke (79) - Spadea (64) (Won (0-2))
They have never played against each other before. 2 year ago around this time of year Spadea was number 18 of the world. This year he is playing a lot better than previous and I expect him to get back in the top 50 of the world. Udomchoke is playing more challengers than ATP tournaments. I don't give him a chance against Spadea.

ATP Costa do Sauipe
Ferrero (27) - Roitman (77) (Won(2-0))
And again a match between 2 players who have never faced each other before. While Ferrero is the big favorite if we look at the ranking his form is not promising. Played 3 matches this year, lost 2 and only won one. Still I believe that Ferrero should win against Roitman, who won two matches this year but that was against player not within the top 150 of the ATP ranking.





WTA Antwerp. The tournament with the most beautiful trophy. A golden racket covered with diamonds. The estimated value of the racket is set at 1 million euros. If Mauresmo wins this year she may take it home.
Maes (235) - Bammer (47) (Won(0-2))
This should not be a problem for Bammer, who won last week, for the first time in her a life an WTA title. The only advantage Maes has is the support of the home crowd, but I doubt that that will be enough.

The bets:
Today 1 combo and 1 single bet.
I have placed a 1€ bet on Spadea with a possible pay-out of 1.37€. -> won
I have placed a 1€ bet on the combo Bammer and Ferrero with a possible payout of 1.90€. -> won

Total at stake: 2€
Possible pay-out: 3.27€
Actual pay-out: 3.27€

Tennis bets and recap of the weekend

This was the weekend I was waiting for. 7 out of 9 predictions were correct. Resulting in a profit 3,11€, meaning a ROI over the 100%. Also at tipster competition of Online Betting Guide I'm doing fine with a profit for this month over the 300. Now I have to be careful with my profit hoping that at the end of the month I still can show my results in green and not in the so much hated red color.

There are some interesting tennis matches today. I'm very disappointed that I didn't put any money on the Davis Cup game between Belgium and Australia. Very well done by my fellow country men. I'm very proud.



San Jose
Chela (39) - Martin A. (56) (Won(2-0))
The last 4 encounters where won by Chela indicating that he knows the responses on the play of Martin. Martin only has won once this season, but that was against Monfils. The other games were lost against Rochus O., Roberedo and Murray. My money is on Chela.





WTA Antwerp
Vesnina (56) - Safina (11) (Won(0-2))
The head to head stats are not helping here, cause they have never played before. I have the feeling that it will we be a straight sets victory for Safina, but I cannot explain why. We will see.

The bets:
A 1€ bets on the combo Safina and Chela with a possible pay-out of 1.75€. So a possible ROI of 75%. Which is not considered bad for a bet. -> Won

Total at stake: 1€
Possible pay-out: 1.75€

Revival weekend for PSV, Lyon and/or Bayern??

When writing this post I came to the conclusion that this weekend it the weekend of the revivals (PSV, Bayern and Lyon). Rarely seen that so big teams having a back to back loosing streak.

Jupiler league

Westerlo (8) - Bergen (14) (Won(2-1))
Bergen lost 5 out of their last 6 away games, Westerlo 4 out of their last 6 home games.I have no doubt that Westerlo will win this one.

Lokeren (15) - Roeselare (6) (Lost(1-1))
I really don't understand how it is possible that Roeselare stands so high in the ranking and why Lokeren stands so low. Football I guess? Roeselare away from home is no succes but Lokeren at home also not. Roeselare surprised everybody by winning 0-1 with a last minut goal against Brugge. They surely will not win twice in a row away from home. Also Football is improving in Lokeren, so my money is on them.

Bundesliga

Bayern Münich (4) - Arminia Bielefeld (10) (Won(1-0))
I cannot imagine that Bayern will continue with their bad streak, they haven't won in their last 3 games(2 defeats and 1 draw). The defence probably will be re-arranged (a big chance that Van Buyten will start on the bench). Bielefeld hasn't won in their last 6 games so an excellent victim vor Bayern to improve their confidence.

Premier League
Manchester United (1) - Charlton (19) (Won(2-0))
I give Charlton no chance. 99 times out of 100 Man U will win this one. No further comment needed.

Reading (6) - Aston Villa (13) (Won(2-0))
For a newcomer Reading has an impressive track record at home. Aston Villa is climbing in the ranking. My money is on Reading who hasn't lost in their last 6 games.

Arsenal (4) - Wigan Athletic (17) (Won(2-1))
Arsenal should not have any problems with Wigan. While Arsenal possibly sometimes gets surprised away from home, this rearly happens at home. Arsenal hasn't lost yet at home. The money is on Arsenal.

Ligue 1
Lyon (1) - Lorient (7) (Won(1-0))
The loosing has to stop for Lyon, while they still have a big lead the pressure on the team is increasing. Their last victory is from the 20th of january (5 games ago). Lorient only won 1 away game from their last 6 and I consider them a sitting duck.

Calcio

While it is still unknown which matches will be played with or without a crowd, I'm not going to make any predictions. I consider this a match day to dangerous to bet on.

Eredivisie

Sparta Rotterdam (13) - PSV (1) (Lost(1-1))
Ages ago that PSV lost back-toback. Pretty confident that they will work out their frustation on Sparta. The losses of PSV gave AZ and Ajax back titles hope and PSV likes the crush these again as soon as possbile.

Primera Divsion

No matches where I have enough confident in.

So, 8 matches made the cut. Now it is a matter a connected the dots.
It will be split up in 3 combo (2x3 and 1x2).

My bets:
On each combo 1€ will be placed
Combo 1: Lokeren and PSV -> possible pay-out 2.95€ -> Lost
Combo 2: Westerlo, Manchester United and Readin -> Possible pay-out 3.90€ -> won
Combo 3: Arsenal, Lyon and Bayern -> possible pay-out 2.21€ -> won

Total at stake: 3€
Possible pay-out: 9.06€
Actual pay-out: 6.11€
Profit/loss this post: 3.11
Profit this month: 1.93

Dechy - Mauresmo

Yesterday a lot a international Friendlies are played.
Most of them had the expected outcome like the win of Holland against Russia and the deserved victory of Check Republic against Belgium :(. This last one indicates that we, Belgians, can forget about qualifying for the next european championships. There was not a real team on the pitch. The defenders made a lot of mistakes, etc... Strange how a player like Van Buyten is not able to play one good mathc for his national team. Time and time again he makes mistakes which always results in a goal. Maybe this is alo the problem for Bayern!

The second round of the Gaz de France in Paris.






Dechy (53) - Mauresmo (3) (Won (0-2))
Dechy was elimated in the first round in the 2 previous tournaments she played this year. While the defeat at the Australian open against Hingis was expected, the defeat a Sydney against Craybas came as a surprise to me. In the first round of the tournament she won against Garbin. For Mauresmo it is the first match of this tournament after the bye in the first round. I don't think that she will have any problems with Dechy.
The real dare devils also can place a bet on a 2-0 victory of Mauresmo.

Tomorrow I will post all my football bets for the weekend. Investigation starts as we speak.

International friendlies and Gaz de France

I'm curious what my bookmaker is going to do with the result of Gruber and Cuche. They both finished 4Th with exact the same time. Probably the will just pay-out the ante.





Rezai (43) - Vaidisova (9) (Won (0-2))
The only previous confrontation was at the French Open last year, where Vaidisova won 2 sets to 1. The remark to that is that Reiza at that moment in time was number 142 of the world, while she made a lot of progress since then. Rezai is not in form, losing in the first round of the Australian Open and lost in the second round at Sydney. Vaidisova on the other hand won 8 matches this year and lost 2. In both tournaments where she participated this year, she reached to semis, loosing against Jankovic in Sydney and against Serena Williams at the Australian open. I expect a 2-0 win for Vaidisova.

Chakvetadze (13) - Poutchkova (35) (Won (2-0))
The first encounter was won by Poutchkov, but after that it were 2 victories for Chakvetadze, who has an excellent start of the year. She won at Hobart and reached the quarter finals at the Australian Open where she lost from Sharapova. Poutchkov on the other hand never got further this year than the second round. Also don't forget that Chakvetadze already won this year against Poutchkov at Hobart with 7-6 and 7-5.

I have placed 1,46€ bet on this combo with a possible pay-out of 1.94€. -> Won







It is always dangerous to bet on friendlies. You never know what experiment the teams are going to try out. Still one in which I believe.
Greece (16) - South Korea (51) (Lost (0-1))
Played in London. Greece is still the raining European Champion and Korea can't be compared any more with the team while coached by Hiddink. It is a little bit risky cause Greece lost their last 3 friendlies. South Korea lost their last 2 friendlies. Last year the played against each other in the LG Cup. The result was a 1-1 draw. If you don't believe my prediction that Greece will win, under can also be a safe bet.

I have placed a 1€ bet on Greece with a possible pay-out of 2.15€. -> Lost

Total at stake: 2.46€
Possible pay-out: 4.04€
Actual pay-out: 1.94€
Profit/loss this post: 0.52
Loss this month: 2.02

It could have been worse. I think that a lot of people has lost money this weekend with the losses of Lyon, PSV, Bayern Münich and Real Madrid. The draw of Liverpool etc....

I'm won a little bit of money back with a last minut bet on the correct winner of the Superbowl. My profit their was 1.08€.

I'm curious what the Italian soccer federation is going to do with the riots during the derby last friday. Such behaviour is unacceptable.

This week the Tennis tournament in Paris starts, let's hope we can recover some of my loss.





Safina (12)
- Krajicek (70) (Won (2-0))
While Michaelle has a lot of potential, she still is not strong enough to win against somebody from the top 20 of the WTA ranking. She played two matches this year and lost both, so also the motivation will not be at a very high level. The only encounter between these 2 players was last year on grass. Krajicek surprised by winning in 2 straight sets. Safina already won the tournament of Gold Coast this year but failed on the Australian open, where she was eliminated by Li. I think that Safina will win this time in 2 straight sets.
I have placed a 2€ bet on Safina with a possible pay-out of 2.46€. -> won





Besides Tennis, this year also the World Championships Alpine skiing take place.
On the program today: the Super G for men.
I have placed a bet on the head to head between Cuche Didier and Gruber C. Ofcourse my money is on cuche.
I have placed a 1.78€ bet on Cuche with a possible pay-out of 2.84. -> Void
It is very dangerous to bet on skiing cause everybody can fall and everybody will take risks to be the world champion. Bet hey, I need to win back some money.

Weekend 3/02/07

Before I explain my small list of pick for this weekend I want to express my deepest sympathy to the family of the police officer, which died yesterday during the derby Palermo - Catania.
It is shocking that such things happen. I cannot imagine what these people are thinking. But this is not only related to football anymore. During the Australian Open of this year, for the first time ever, 2 groups of supporters attacked each other.

Bundesliga
Frankfurt (12) - Mainz 05 (16) (Lost (0-0))
Only four points between Frankfurt and the relegation places. Mainz 05 is on a relegation spot and is trying to avoid it. Mainz won their first two games of the year, while Wasn't capable of winning one. But today they will win their first of 2007.

Premier League
Liverpool (3) - Everton (8) (Lost (0-0))
Liverpool has a very good home reputation. No loses, only 2 draws and 10 victories. I think that they will add another win to the list.

Primera Divsion
Real Madrid (3) - Levante (18) (Lost (0-1))
This should not be a problem for Real. A team which wants to be the champion of Spain is obliged to win these matches.

Friday Special

Okay, I admit not a good start this month. But it only can get better.

Today two top teams (Club Brugge, FC Bayern München) are playing, who have sacked their coach this week. In Belgian Fereira was sacked after an undeserved loss at home against Roeselare, while Bayern sacked Magath (who will be coaching Hamburg).

History tells us that more than 50% of the games after the sacking of a head coach are won.

Jupiler league
Club Brugge (5) - Beveren (17) (Won)
For Brugge that should not be a problem, cause they will be playing Beveren. Beveren has a lot a player from Ivory Coast and their beloved games is very technical while Club Brugge is more a team that wins games with their fighting spirit. And Beveren always has difficulties against such team. My idea is backed up by the head to head stats. If Fereira would still be the head coach I would give Beveren a chance but not the game after a head coach replacement.

Bundesliga
Nürnberg (7) - FC Bayern Münich (4) (Lost)
I expect that not only the coach was sacked but also the player got a thunder speech from the directors of Bayern. The head to head stats indicate that Nürnberg at home is not a sitting duck for Bayern but still I believe in a victory for Bayern Münich. and look at the odds how nice they are. A real beauty. Therefor I will add Bayern in this combo.

The bets
A 1€ bet on the combo Club Brugge and Bayern with a possible pay-out of 3.75€. -> lost

If you believe in a victory of Nürnberg, place you bet on betfair.com . The odds for a win a Nürnberg are almost to nice to miss. For each € they will pay you 4.30€ back if Nürnberg wins.
Remember that it is utmost important to have your bankroll divided over several bookmakers.
I strongly can advise betfair.com and bet365.

Also don't forget that if you are playing on Online Betting Guide that since yesterday the account has been reset and you have back a fresh £1000 to bet with. This is absolutly free money with no strings attached!

Bwin special of the day

A new month, new chances to gain back some money.
January was not suched a bad month. I had a bad start and the Australian open cost me some money.

My combo were better than last month. In December my success rate for the combo was 18.18% and in January it increased to 42.30%. Let's see if I can break the 50% this month.

Lets kick off the week with the Bwin.com special. You can easily play this match by clicking the correct boxes in the banner above. This could be a money maker.

Inter Milan - Sampdoria (Lost)
A Cup match. It is almost sure that Inter will go to the final of the Coppa Italia. In the previous game Inter crushed Sampdoria with 0-3. It should also be capable of winning this match even with the idea the Sampdoria is out on revenge and the motivation of Inter will be a little bit smaller.

Sevilla - Real Betis (Lost)
Copa Del Rey. This round is like almost all round within the Copa Del Rey decided in a home and away game. Sevilla wants to ease the pressure for the away game by winning their home game. Sevilla eliminated Real Madrid in the previous round while Real Betis eliminated Rayo Vallecano. It is probably the only chance on a title for Sevilla now that they are second in the primera division.

This combo pay-outs 2.23€ for a 1 euro bet.
I will put 1.06€ with a possible pay-out of 2.36€. -> Lost

bet365
Bet 365 gives a lot better odds if you expect a victory of Sevilla (1.72) and the odds for a victory of are set on 1.40. Meaning that I you bet on this combo on bet365 you will have a possible pay-out of 2.40€ for 1€ bet. 0.27€ per 1 € more. Suppose that you have the guts and place a 10€ bet on both the difference is 2.70€, which is a lot. So I you don't have an account yet with bet365 yet, now is the time.

If you only want to play the game of Inter than Betfair is the place to be, the odds for a victory of Inter are set on a stunning 1.49€. For more info see the banner in the left frame.
