Many of the major leagues from around the world have now kicked off and revitalized Bale hungry for goals And as we approach late August, there are already some major talking points tingling on the lips of football fans.
But most importantly, as sports bettors, we want to know what all of this means for our potential profits! Well, the weekend’s action has given some rather large indicators that can steer us in the right direction.
We have rounded up five of the most important events from this previous weekend, as well as provided bet suggestions for this coming week. So without further ado, let’s delve in and see where the profit lies!
Revitalized Bale Hungry For Goals – Influence Rating 4/5
As we all know, La Liga kicked off over the weekend and raised a few eyebrows across Europe. Barcelona had a shock defeat to Atletic Bilbao, and Gareth Bale actually seemed settled during Real Madrid’s opening game.
Bale has been shrouded in transfer rumours over the past few months. And many fans truly expected him to leave during the transfer window this summer. But Bale put in a great performance against Celta Vigo and lifted his team to a 3-1 victory.
He played for 75 minutes and assisted Benzema with the opening goal. One thing is for sure, the Welshman looked anything but unsettled.
Following his inspired performance at the weekend, the suggested bet for this week is the Real Madrid half time /full-time bet. Currently, Bet365 is offering 1.57 odds for this bet.
Newcastle Defeat To Norwich – Influence Rating 3/5
The Magpies haven’t exactly been at the top of the tree in recent years. But their performance over the weekend has made certain Premier League followers quite intrigued. Newcastle is clearly not in fantastic form, but this has provided an opportunity.
Although the Magpies have lost both of their opening games, there were some very positive signs against Norwich. And let’s be honest, they need to take these positives with them on their travels to Tottenham this weekend.
Newcastle had 12 shots against Norwich, 10 of these coming from inside the box. And anyone who watched the game could tell there was nothing in it between the two teams.
Therefore, the suggested bet is for both teams to score during the Newcastle vs. Tottenham game this weekend. Bet365 is currently offering odds of 2.1 for this bet.
Dangerous Dortmund’s 5-1 Statement – Influence Rating 5/5
Borussia Dortmund has certainly evolved to become one of the strongest teams in the world over the last decade. And they certainly made their presence known over the weekend with 5-1 drumming of Augsburg.
Next in their way is the recently promoted side of F.C. Köln. We must note however that Köln has consistently been in the Bundesliga, and their relegation in the 17/18 season was a huge shock!
They are certainly no strangers to games against big clubs. And given that this is their first home game back at the top level, we have an interesting bet to suggest.
Obviously, Dortmund is in the mood for goals, but we predict that Köln is too! We suggest both teams to score with a Dortmund win bet. Bet365 are offering 2.5 odds for this, which is a huge value.
Huddersfield Victory Drought – Influence Rating 4/5
When will Huddersfield’s fortunes start to change? Sorry to all Huddersfield fans out there, but they just cannot seem to win! Obviously, their confidence will be rattled right now, perhaps more so after failing to win against fellow relegation compatriots, Fulham.
Huddersfield travels to Cardiff next, who took a heavy 3-0 defeat to Read over the weekend. Could it be that this is the turning point for Huddersfield? We all know that when a team is low on confidence, the best chance for a turn around is against another team who is also low on confidence!
No Neymar, Big Problem – Influence Rating 5/5
PSG suffered a shock defeat to Rennes at the weekend, losing 2-1 in a very unusual game. What’s more unusual is the fact that the superstar Brazilian was not remotely engaged with the game.
Rumours have exploded recently about a possible Neymar transfer, and this absence over the weekend gave gasoline to the fire. Could it be that Neymar is on his way out of PSG?
One thing is certain, PSG did not seem at their best. They play Toulouse this coming weekend, and we are going for a bit of a long-shot prediction, which if correct will have huge returns.
We are predicting a PSG draw given the unsettlement of Neymar and the team. And Bet365 is currently offering a huge 9.0 odds for this bet.
As they say, stranger things have happened in the world of football!
