Champions League rematch: Ajax - Rapid

Hello there,

Ajax - Rapid
Our pick: Ajax to win

It's time for the rematch between Ajax Amsterdam and Rapid Vienna. It should be win for Ajax. The only risk is that they only need a draw 1:1 or 0:0 in order to qualify. However draw is unlikely for few reasons:
- playing at home in front of big number of fans
- draw happened last week, seeing this again would be another big surprise.
- they are bookies favourites with odds approx. 1.80

Fixed game? Why you should think twice before predicting the outcome...


Everyone knows sport is full of surprises and it's sometimes impossible to predict outcome of the game. This is true especially for football.
In many years of following the teams and scores it looks like there are teams which have stable results and there are ones which have stable surprises! ;-)

We will be adding such "avoid" / "don't touch" teams on our blog.
Today let's just see Ajax Amsterdam. 
This team often is seen as favourite but in my opinion it's just for the historic reasons when they used to play better and winning something.
These days when Ajax plays away it's 99% they are not going to win the game. You can have look at the away game statistics...

The most recent example explaining everything is today's game in the Champions League qualification: Rapid Vienna - Ajax
Guess what... first half 11 players versus 11 players:
Ajax ball possessions on 56% and scored 2 goals!

Winning 2:0 on away ground may let you think... that's it the game is done :)
But wait... second half started and after just 3 minutes Rapid Vienna scores a goal. OK that happens quite often not only for Ajax. So nothing weird here. The score is 1:2 now.

Short after this in the 59 minute Vienna got a red card! So half an hour left to the game end and now you really think the game is over. And here come big surprise:
Second half Vienna 10 players versus Ajax 11 players:
Ajax ball possessions dropped to only 42% and they lost 2 goals.

So the game ends 2:2 hurray draw everybody is happy.
The point here is that to just show how weird and surprising results you can get. It almost looks like the players don't really care about winning (because draw is good enough for away) - so after 2:0 for Ajax let just stop playing and relax so Vienna can score 2 goals with 10 players ;)

Anyway good luck!

Sunday Serie A


After last night successful prediction for Inter - Roma game it's time to continue.

Torino - Juventus
Prediction: Torino to win or draw

Both teams are from the same city so this game is hot. Juve already is the Serie A league champion so can now focus on the champions league. Torino also nothing to lose - safe place in the middle of the table however still chance to take place for Europe League qualifications. Anyway I cannot see Juve winning another away game.

Good luck!

Sunday Serie A


Tonight at 20:45 CET we will have some good Serie A matches.

Parma - Torino 1
Pick: Parma to win
Home team finally has started playing a bit better. They managed to get a home draw against Atlanta and away draw against Roma! They need to start winning if they want to stay in the Serie A for the next season so motivation will be very high.
In other hand away team Torino has a safe place in the middle of the table and losing today will not change it. So they will play relax way without needing to get 3 points. Another factor against them is they have played 2 games within the last 6 days!
Summarizing Parma win seesm to be a good choice tonight.

The other picks we have selected are as follows:
Sampdoria - Inter 1X
Udinese - Fiorentina 1X

Good luck!

Sunday Picks 08 Feb 2015


For today we have prepared quite a lot of sport betting tips. Lets have a look.

West Ham - Man U 1X
Empoli - Cesena 2
Inter - Palermo 1
Lyon - PSG 1X
Cagliari - Roma 1X
Bilbao - Barcelona 1X
Fiorentina - Atalanta X2
Napoli - Udinese HT/FT X/1
Werder Bremen - Bayer Leverkusen 2

Sarra Errani - Alize Cornet 2
Angelique Kerber - Samantha Stosur 2
Richard Gasquet - Jerzy Janowicz 2

Now will try to analyze Inter vs. Palermo game in the Italian Serie A.
Inter sounds like a good pick to us for many reasons. First of all they play at home and the crowd can make a huge impact. Second they are few points behind Palermo and their league place is not what anyone could possible expect before the season. If they want to fight for a place in the European football they must win home games (because away games are much harder for them) For that reason Inter will be extremely motivated and will not want disappoint their fans again. History of direct matches between Inter and Palermo says that they are very close. Either winnings with very small number of goals advantage or draws. Palermo is doing very good recently but here is difficult area for them. Anyway we will find out later today - go go Inter!

Good luck!

Coppa Italia Wednesday 04 Feb 2015


This evening we will have last of the quarterfinals of the Coppa Italia tournament. Napoli will play against Inter Milan.

Prediction: Napoli to win

We've decided to go for Napoli to win it. Here's main reasons:
1. They are strong and very solid team this season.
2. They are also favorite to win here.
3. They have not lost a game since 4 matches. Last game lost was in the beginning of January against even stronger team - Juventus
4. Last time they lost against Inter in "head 2 head" was back in 2012.

Now let's take a look into their opponents - Inter Mediolan:
1. They are not very good this season - at least below expectations.
2. They have lost 2 last games in a row against weaker opponents than Napoli such as Sassuolo and Torino.

Summarizing game should be close but Napoli just plays much better this days. It seems they will be able to win with not strong Inter.
