10 Matches To Bet On This Weekend
With over half of the matches played across Europe’s biggest leagues, log tables are starting to take shape, while some of the big guns are finding form at the right moment. There’s plenty of value this weekend, while we also cannot ignore those juicy bets to add to all our accumulators. Without further ado, lets get down to business!
We cater for everybody here at BET Central, so let’s see what’s cooking on the menu this week:
Tottenham v West Brom (Sunday)
In what is expected to be one of the most one-sided matches occurring this weekend, West Brom travel to Tottenham to face Jose Mourinho’s men in hope of a return to winning ways. Sam Allardyce’s side is second from bottom in the Premier League and have conceded 52 goals – far more than any other side in the division. Spurs’ recent form leaves a lot to be desired having lost two in a row at home, but against one of the weakest teams in England’s top flight, perhaps they could find themselves back in and around the European places.
Sheffield United v Chelsea (Sunday)
Sheffield United look to be finding their rhythm, winning two of their last three games, beating Manchester United at Old Trafford, before claiming a much-needed victory over West Brom on Tuesday night. The Blades’ only defeat in that period was a 1-0 away defeat to Manchester City. Chelsea have looked impressive under Thomas Tuchel so far, both in attack and defence. Given the fact that the German mentor is still tinkering with his line-up, trying to figure out his best team, perhaps there could be cracks for Sheffield United to exploit.
Atalanta v Torino (Saturday)
Atalanta’s impressive run of 10 games without defeat came to an end last weekend as the free-scoring Italian giants lost 3-1 to Lazio. They now face a Torino side who lie in 17th position in the Serie A standings and have not tasted victory in five matches. The hosts have lived up to their goalscoring hype, netting in 45 goals from their opening 20 ties. In that same timeframe, Torino have shipped in 38 goals.
AC Milan v Crotone (Sunday)
This really could be the year that AC Milan’s title drought comes to an end as the Rossoneri top the standings and host the bottom placed side in the Italian Serie A this weekend. The visitors are the only team in the division yet to win on the road this term and have conceded 26 times away from home – the highest tally in the league. AC Milan have been full of class this season and could add a couple of goals to their total of 41 scored so far.
Hertha Berlin v Bayern Munich (Friday)
Bayern Munich’s title defence continues as the Bavarians go in search of their fifth successive victory in the German Bundesliga. Bayern Munich are seven points clear at the top of the standings and have scored four goals in each of their last two matches. Hertha Berlin have lost four of their last five encounters, including the last three on the trot. In those three defeats, Hertha Berlin conceded 10 goals.
Monchengladbach v Cologne (Saturday)
After dropping down a couple of places in the table last weekend, Monchengladbach will be eyeing a return to the top four in the German Bundesliga as they host bottom half side, Cologne. The hosts come into this tie unbeaten in six matches and have won their last three games on home soil. Cologne have won just two of their last eight games and will need to be at their very best to even think of causing any sort of upset here.
Sevilla v Getafe (Saturday)
Sevilla have the opportunity to make it four wins on the trot when they host Getafe in the Spanish La Liga this Saturday. The hosts seem to be getting back to their best and have earned their points in extraordinary fashion, scoring some of the most well-worked goals seen in recent years. Getafe suffered a humiliating 5-1 defeat in their last away game, going down at Athletic Bilbao, while the visitors have won on just two of their nine away trips.
Atletico Madrid v Celta Vigo (Monday)
Atletico Madrid have been flying high all season and look to be on course to win the Spanish La Liga title. Diego Simeone’s side are 10 points clear at the summit and have a game in hand over the chasing pack. Atletico Madrid have won eight league games in a row, while their home record has been formidable, claiming nine wins out of 10 matches, conceding just three times in that period. Celta Vigo are winless in five La Liga ties, losing three times in that run.
Lyon v Strasbourg (Saturday)
Lyon will be bullish of challenging for the league title this campaign after being in touching distance after the halfway mark. At home, Lyon have claimed seven wins from their 11 matches played, scoring 24 times – averaging over two goals per game. Strasbourg have been in the relegation spots for most of the French Ligue 1 campaign so far and have struggled to score goals this term.
Nimes v Monaco (Sunday)
Nimes lie rock bottom of the French Ligue 1 standings, winning just four matches played so far. They’re destined for the drop and considering their home form, where Nimes have lost eight of their 10 games, Monaco will be licking their lips. The visitors have been on a crazy win streak, notching up five victories in a row at the time of writing. Monaco have also been free-scoring in that time, with Kevin Volland well into double figures for the season.
