Rich Laverty highlights the best odds to earn you some cash in this weekend’s Premier League, Bundesliga and La Liga action.
Manchester United to win & BTTS
Whilst we tried this tip last week and it didn’t really pay dividends, United are at home last week against a Leicester City who continuously had their defence opened up as Chelsea scored four goals at the King Power Stadium.
United also rested large parts of their first team whilst Leicester were taken through the rigours of extra-time against Antonio Conte’s side. Whilst United’s defence is hardly watertight, home advantage might just see United sneak the win.
Best Odds: 5/2 (Bet365)
Another red card between Arsenal and Chelsea
Even with Jose Mourinho gone, these two teams have a long and happy history of red cards influencing the result on both sides – usually Arsenal’s.
It was Per Mertesacker who saw red at the Emirates last season whilst both Kieran Gibbs and Santi Cazorla saw red in the previous season’s encounter at Stamford Bridge. Whilst odds aren’t great, there’s every chance you’ll still get a small return on this one.
Best Odds: 9/4 (William Hill)
Real Madrid & Barcelona double
Both sides have tricky away games this weekend, mainly Real’s tough trip to Las Palmas who have started the season in fine fashion.
With the likes of Kevin-Prince Boateng in attack, Las Palmas have every chance of breaching Real’s defence but as ever, Zidane’s side should have enough in attack. Barcelona go to Sporting Gijon and it’s hard to imagine any game these days where MSN won’t come out on top.
Best Odds: 0.6/1 (SkyBet)
Watford to continue winning streak
Whilst going to Burnley and Sean Dyche’s side is never an easy task, Watford are flying high under their new boss.
An incredible comeback which saw them come from 2-0 down to win 4-2 against West Ham at the London Stadium was quickly followed by a deserved 3-1 win against Mourinho’s Manchester United last weekend.
With Burnley not exactly smashing the goals in, Watford could be a good bet for an away win on Monday night.
Best Odds: 7/4 (Marathon Bet)
Bayern Munich -1
Betting on Bayern Munich in Bundesliga always feels like a sure fire bet and they’ve picked up where they left off this season under Carlo Ancelotti.
Despite home advantage, Hamburg are yet to win a match this season and have only managed two goals in four matches, conceding nine in the same time.
With Muller, Lewandowski and co to call on, -1 feels like it’s nailed on. If you fancy a risk, push the boat out on -2.
Best Odds: 3/10 (Bet365)
