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.

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 p…

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!

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€
Profit/loss this post: 0.71€
Profit/loss this month: 2.11€

Good Luck,

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€

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.

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 ex…

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 …

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

No bets for this weekend

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 Bangalore
Sucha (94) - Mirza (46) (Won(0-2))
I believe in Mi…

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 t…

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))

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.

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.

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). …

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 th…

Quick one today

My fear to bet on international friendlies was correct. Greece lost 0-1, but if you followed my under prediction you were fine.

For today only tennis.

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 wo…
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 o…

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.

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.

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.

Real Madrid (3) - Levante (18) (Lost (0-1))
This should not be a problem for Real. A team whic…

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.

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.

Nürnberg (7) - FC Bayern Münich (4) (Lost)
I expect that not only the coach was sacked but also …

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 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 …
