Advent Tips – December 16th

Who needs Rudolph eh?!

Hurricane Fly delivered the goods all by himself yesterday, as he defied a long absence to beat Solwhit for the second time this year. That was a fourth winning bet in a row for us and came in at a very tasty 7/2 (or 4.8 if you backed him on Betfair).

We’re off to Turin for today’s bet as Man City take on Juventus in the Europa League.

Back the Juventus vs. Man City match to go under 2.5 goals. This bet is a best priced 10/11 with Betfair.

Did anyone catch the Liverpool match last night? If not then congratulations are in order – snooze fest doesn’t come close!

To be fair to both teams it was a meaningless match and they tend to go one of two ways. They are usually a) a goal fest as both teams let their metaphorical hair down or b) a test of patience as the two sides simply turn up and go through the motions. Last night’s ‘contest’ was the latter and I can see another one on the horizon tonight.

Now, this isn’t quite a meaningless match but if anything that could work in our favour, due to the fact that neither side is likely to throw too much caution to the wind. Juve are still in with a chance of qualifying (although it’s out of their hands) and City are not yet assured of top spot (although a point should be more than enough).

With goal difference also unlikely to come into the equation, this all means that both teams are likely to kick-off with their default mindset very much in place. And as anybody who was watched the two teams in action will tell you, their default mindset is all about defence, defence, defence.

City alone tend to play two or three defensive midfielders when they’re chasing victory and so goodness knows how many they’ll play in an away match where a draw will do (10 plus a keeper perhaps?).

Most bookies have gone 8/11 on this and so Betfair’s 10/11 should be taken full advantage of. If you can’t get the kids to sleep tonight then you can also watch the match live on ESPN. Kick off’s at 6pm so you’ll even have time for a festive fumble afterwards…

    Cheers Matt, looking forward to putting my feet up for a snooze in front of that one then.

    Looking at the matches in France this weekend, Nice Brest caught my eye, don’t know why.

    While the odds have come in a bit since this morning you may also be interested to know that Tevez, Balotelli and Adebayor are all set to miss out for Man City.

    Maybe they really are planning on playing ten defensive midfielders…
