Champions League Preview and Betting Tips – 22nd Feb 2017

We have more Champions League action for you tonight as Premier League title holders Leicester City try and get their season back on track against Europa League holders Sevilla, and Serie A giants Juve take on Porto. Over at Appbet we’ve taken a look at the betting markets to help you make an educated bet. FC Porto v Juventus Currently priced at 13/5 in the Match Winner market, Porto head into this Champions League tie with Juventus as total underdogs. Finishing second in their group behind Leicester, Porto would have preferred a much easier draw at this stage of the competition if they were to progress. The home side are on a six-win streak in all domestic competitions, and their recent form has seen them take top spot in the Portuguese League with a game in hand over nearest rivals Benfica. Although they have only failed to score once at home this season, they have only kept one clean sheet all season, something we feel Juve will be looking to capitalise on. The Serie A title holders are unbeaten in all of their previous games against Porto, and won all of the three away games in the group stages earlier this season. They have only failed to find the back of the net once on the road this season, so we think both teams to score is definitely the bet to go for. In the goalscorer market, it looks like you should be putting your money on Gonzalo Higuain to score for Juventus priced at 5/4, and Andre Silva of Porto to potentially continue his goal scoring record at...

Champions League Preview and Betting Tips – 20th Feb 2017

We have more Champions League action to entertain you this week as Manchester City take on Monaco, and last season’s beaten finalists Atletico Madrid head to Germany. Over at AppBet we’ve taken a look at the best bets for each game. Bayer Leverkusen v Atletico Madrid It’s déjà vu for Atletico Madrid in the last-16 of the Champions League, as once again it’s German side Bayer Leverkusen who are the team standing in their way of progression to the next round of the competition. Progressing to the knockout stages by finishing top of their group, ahead of the Bayern Munich side that thrashed Arsenal 5-1 in their tie last week, it certainly seems as though their European form has been outweighing their domestic form this time round. Conceding only two goals in the Champions League so far this season, they picked up five straight victories, four of them being by one clear goal. Add to that, since the start of 2016 they have never scored more than one goal away from home in this competition, we feel a 1-0 win priced 11/2 looks a strong bet. Leverkusen may have something to say about Atletico keeping 25 clean sheets in 42 Champions League games, having scored against Spanish opposition in their last 11 home games in this competition. However, despite being unbeaten in their group, they only managed to pick up two victories, and historically with this tie ending in a draw, under 2.5 goals at 8/15 looks a strong bet. In the goalscorer market, Javier Hernandez has only scored one goal in the Champions League this season, so we’d...
Ascot Betting Preview and Tips – 18th Feb 2017

Ascot Betting Preview and Tips – 18th Feb 2017

Ascot is the premier destination for racing this weekend, and we expect to see the top festival chances strutting their stuff on the Berkshire course. Over at AppBet we’ve taken a look at the top chances on the cards to help you pick out your best bets. Ascot 13:15 De Dollar Man We’re quite surprised that Evan Williams trained De Dollar Man is 7/1 going into this race having picked up two victories under orders already this season. Starting the season strongly in a National Hunt Flat race, he won his last outing at Ayr by seven lengths over a longer distance than today’s race and should be one to watch here. Ascot 13:50 Label Des Obeaux With a strike rate of 17% this season it’s hard to ignore Alan King, and he will be looking to continue that here at Ascot with 7/2 chance Label Des Obeaux. Winning his last outing a Ludlow by thirteen lengths to his nearest rival he has steadily improved this season, and we expect another strong performance here. Ascot 15:00 Air Horse One Harry Fry’s low strike rate of 11% can’t continue the for the rest of the season, can it? Well, one horse that can potentially turn that around is six-year-old Air Horse One who is currently 5/1 in the betting. Winning his last two races despite being upped in weight and upped in distance last time out at Taunton, he goes for a hat-trick at Ascot and could land another victory. Ascot 15:35 Cue Card The Colin Tizzard trained eleven-year-old is out and out favourite for this race and priced at...
Haydock Preview and Betting Tips – 18th Feb 2017

Haydock Preview and Betting Tips – 18th Feb 2017

There isn’t only top class racing this weekend from Ascot as over at Haydock we can look forward to a Grand National Trial as well as some exciting hurdle races. At AppBet we’ve taken an educated look at the market and picked out our top choices. Haydock 13:30 Don Bersey Priced at 2/1, the four-year-old has had a very strong start to his racing career. Winning his last two outings over timber, he stayed on well last time out to take a three-length victory ahead of Dino Velvet, and we think he has the ability to pick up another victory here. Haydock 14:05 Desert Cry If you’re looking for an in-form horse at a very decent price, then look no further than 12/1 shot Desert Cry. The Donald McCain-trained eleven-year-old comes into this race looking to land a hat-trick after winning two Class Three Handicaps. Upped in class for this race, he still could have a little to find if he is to be competitive here, but, he is definitely one to watch. Haydock 15:15 Kruzhlinin He may not have won over further than three miles, but Philip Hobbs-trained Kruzhlinin has a lot of support coming into this race, and priced at 7/1 he offers a lot of market value. He has shown strong form so far this season, winning at Haydock and finishing second at Kempton last time out. His stable has solid form coming into this race, and it’s worth having another bet on him here. Haydock 15:50 The Worlds End Tom George trained The Worlds End comes into this race looking for a very competitive hat-trick...
Ascot Chase Preview: Tizzard to improve form right on Cue

Ascot Chase Preview: Tizzard to improve form right on Cue

With only four weeks to go until the Cheltenham Festival the top Grade One chasers will be getting in their final preparation runs, and this weekend we’re off to Berkshire for the prestigious Ascot Chase. It was won last season by Silviniaco Conti and in recent times by stars such as Riverside Theatre, Captain Chris and Kauto Star, and looking at the betting it looks as though a former winner Cue Card will start the race this weekend as favourite. Expected to go to post as 4/9 favourite, the eleven-year-old certainly looks the one to beat at Ascot. Making a drop back in trip to this shorter distance for the first time since October 2015, we feel his appearance here could be a signal of intent by Tizzard to take him out of the Gold Cup frame and move him to the Ryanair, so he will not come a cropper to Thistlecrack as he did at Kempton. Starting this season with a third-place finish in the Charlie Hall Chase, he comprehensively beat Coneygree in the Betfair Chase, before his second-place finish on Boxing Day. Rated 9lbs better than any of his rivals in this race, the only negative we have on him is the trip, but having won this race back in 2013, it shouldn’t prove too much of a problem. 20/1 shot Irish Cavalier defeated Cue Card at Wetherby earlier this season, and if he can give a repeat of that form here he has a very good chance. However, since that race his form has been very inconsistent, pulled up at Haydock, he was then defeated 47...
FA Cup 5th Round Preview

FA Cup 5th Round Preview

Burnley v Lincoln, Saturday 12.30 Lincoln played very well against Brighton in the last round and reach the last 16 for the first time since 1902, its going to be a massive day out for their supporters and one that every fan will remember. Brighton made 8 changes in the last round but still put out a decent side. Burnley also made 8 changes last time out. When betting on this game as always with the FA cup it’s predicting the starting 11 that holds the key to finding value. Even if Burnley do make 8 changes they comfortably beat a Championship team last time out, albeit one with 6 changes. Burnley have 30 points a full 10 points above relegation and with their home form have a very real chance of at least reaching the semi-finals, however we are still pretty sure they will rest players, it’s depressing but there you go. It will be pretty tight but at home we think that still offers value on Burnley. Get the best price on Burnley at 1.35 Huddersfield v Man City, Saturday 15.00 Huddersfield are flying in the Championship and have won 5 in a row, they are now only 4 points from automatic promotion. Here in lies the problem. It is highly likely they will make sweeping changes for this one. They rested half their team in the last round but as they were playing Rochdale they still won 4 -0. City will make changes as well but in the cup their squad quality means that they will still field a team of Internationals. This should mean City get...
