Liverpool vs Chelsea – Predictions and Betting Tips for Sunday

Liverpool vs Chelsea predictions and betting tips for Sunday, 27th April in the Premier League, free Liverpool v Chelsea tips this weekend.

Liverpool could virtually seal their first League title since the black and white days of 1990 with a victory over Chelsea on Sunday afternoon and sadly I think they will do so.

Their price has collapsed to best priced 7/10 with Coral since Jose has threatened that he will field a weakened side as he has an eye on the all-important second last clash with Atlético. Should he carry out his spineless promise and they lose, then hopefully the blues will suffer the same fate and get dumped out of Europe as well.

Given the odds on price for the Liverpool win I was looking at the Suarez/Liverpool win price but given the fact he doesn’t score against any decent teams that is overlooked in favour of a 9/2 betting tip in the same market. Raheem Shaquille Sterling has been playing well in recent weeks scoring four goals in his last eight matches and scaring teams with his fast direct approach. Given the injuries in Chelsea’s defence and their less than mobile midfield he will cause problems and get in many goals scoring positions. He isn’t afraid to shoot and with 77 year old Mark Schwarzer in goal he can easily get a goal. At 9/2 with Ladbrokes for Sterling to score and Liverpool to win that’s the first Liverpool v Chelsea betting prediction.

Sticking with Sterling, of the four goals he has scored, two have been the first of the game, Bet365 go 9/1 for this to happen. We’ll back him e/w as they pay unlimited places should he score but not bag the first.

Finally we opt for a bet which has won 11 times out of the last 17 matches at Anfield and that is for a Liverpool win with over 2.5 Goals. Given the above ratio it’s somewhat surprising that this is priced up at 27/20 with Ladbrokes.

Atletico Madrid v Chelsea – Predictions and betting tips

Atletico Madrid vs Chelsea predictions and betting tips for tonight’s Champions League semi-final first leg clash.

Both teams have probably surprised themselves by getting to the Champions League semi-final but now they are here they have a fantastic chance of appearing in the final.

In the Atletico Madrid v Chelsea betting odds for the first leg tonight, Atletico are 9/10 with Ladbrokes to win, the draw is 5/2 at Bet365 and Chelsea are 4/1 to win with Coral.

When looking at tonight’s betting tips the first thing to note is that it is expected to be a close match and Mourinho is likely to go to Spain to keep it tight at the back and try and pinch an away goal on the counter attack. Under 2.5 goals looks the best bet of the match but it is only 11/20 so that’s not enough value to offer as a football tip.

Atletico Madrid’s last five matches have seen two goals or less and away from home three of Chelsea’s last four have ended in a 1-0 scoreline, with four of Atletico Madrid’s last five at home ending in a 1-0 home win. A 1-0 Atletico Madrid win tonight is priced at 5/1 with William Hill.

Given that we expect a cagey first period a bet on the score to be 0-0 at half-time might be worth a punt and that can be found at 6/4 with William Hill.

For a first goalscorer tip in tonight’s Champions League match Diego Costa is the obvious choice for Atletico Madrid and he has already scored seven goals in six matches this season. Diego Costa to score first is our next football betting tip at 9/2 with William Hill.

An interesting betting system for in-live soccer betting – Part Two


A few days ago we talked about an interesting betting statistic that I found in one of the betting forums I regularly read. It’s about what happens after the visiting team in a football match succeed to score in the first five minutes of the match.

So far we have discussed such matches from the English Premier League and Bundesliga in Germany.

However, if we look at the matches in France, we can see that the statistics show that this is the league in which it is the least possible for the home team to recover and reach victory after receiving an early goal. This means that if you see a match where the guests lead up within the very first minutes you can safely bet in-play in their favor. Most likely it will be a successful bet.

Of course, you need at first to carefully analyze the proposed by the bookmakers betting odds as it is determining whether your bet will be justified or not.

For the other two leagues and especially the Spanish Primera Division can be said that they are far less predictable and more difficult than the others. However, in both championships most probably such a match will end with results like 1-2 and 0:2.

Something else that can be seen from these data is that in Italy the home team has most chances to equalize almost immediately. This can be used if you decide to bet on which team will score the next goal of the match.

Of course, it’s just a betting statistic and we all could make different conclusions from it. However, it should be carefully analyzed and probably implemented in different ways, according to the way of betting a player prefer. One thing is certain, this is a statistic that is more than curious and interesting for all who enjoy sports betting.

An interesting betting system for in-live soccer betting


While browsing in one of my favorite betting forums on the internet I came across a very interesting statistics that may be useful to those who bet in-play on football matches.

The statistics cover matches in which the away team was able to score a goal in the first five minutes and thus to take an early lead in the match. These statistics cover the five major championships Premier League in England, Serie A in Italy, Primera Division in Spain, Ligue 1 in France and Bundesliga in Germany.

What does this betting data show?

An interesting fact is that in Germany the chances of the home team to do a complete reversal are higher than everywhere – about 25%. It allows in-play betting, although it is unlikely that easily to get odds for a home win at 4 so early in the match. However, if you decide to wait until halftime to take better odds, then the chances for the home team to recover will be highly reduced.

However, after an early goal for the visitors the most likely outcome of the match in the Bundesliga is 1:1. Such result occurs around 22% of matches, which is more than an excellent result. However, it is also unlikely to get odds of 4.5 for a draw, which to give you the option to make a bet. On the other hand, a bet on the exact score of the match is more than good.

The next most likely outcome after an early goal for the visitors in the Bundesliga is 1:2, which occurs in 12% of the matches, followed by 3:2, which again occurs in 12% of the matches.

The betting statistics are quite interesting in the matches of the Premier League. They show that the most likely outcome in such matches is 2-1 for the hosts. Moreover, according to the statistics the majority of goals scored by the hosts are in the second half and even after the 60th minute. This will ensure you excellent odds at the end of the match for the home team to win.

However, you should note that the next four most likely results in the matches of the Premier League after an early goal scored by the guests are for an away win.

More data to follow after a few days.
