Betting Tip / Dortmund vs. APOEL

Borussia Dortmund vs. APOEL Nicosia FC, Champions League Group H 2017/2018, Wednesday, November 1st, 2017, 19:45 GMT

Home Team Stats
Dortmund, currently ranked 4th in UEFA Champions League Group H takes the field against APOEL with a record of 1 point earned following 2 losses and 1 draw. Out of those two defeats, one was against Real Madrid with the final whistle bringing the match to a 3 to 1 score for the latter. And, interestingly enough, the draw was against APOEL, so expect some scores to be settled once and for all tomorrow evening. You’d think playing on home turf would benefit Dortmund, but this is a team that prefers life on the road. Unfortunately, Dortmund showed weak defense across its last 10 performances, but the team did score regularly, at least one goal per match.

Away Team Stats
Coming in 3rd place of this Group Stage, APOEL also has only 1 point to show for, with the same exact record Dortmund currently has, meaning 2 defeats and one draw. Before drawing with Dortmund, APOEL lost against Tottenham on home field, which was to be expected since Giorgos Donis’ team fares better as a visitor. Tough challenge ahead for APOEL, since it desperately needs a win in order to qualify for Champions League’s next round. However, across its last 4 matches, the Cypriots drew 2 times, lost once and won one time.

Recent Developments
Across its last 30 matches, Dortmund managed to secure 8 wins, draw 4 games and lose 3 times on the road, while counting 8 victories, suffering 5 defeats, and drawing 5 times on its own stadium. Also, 5 out of its last 10 home matches for all competitions ended in defeat, while the other half represented uncontested victories.

On the other hand, APOEL got its hands on 6 wins, completing its record as a visitor with 4 defeats and 5 draws. At home, Donis’ team won 7 times, counted 4 defeats, and drew 4 times across its last 30 performances.

Conclusion
Even though Dortmund prefers to play on foreign courts, there is little doubt Peter Bosz’s team won’t be able to secure a win tomorrow, especially given its past experience in European major leagues and the quality of the team seen as a whole. Also, the fight to move to the next round will most certainly bring by lots of goals, maybe even exceeding the 2.5 marker.

Betting Tip / Manchester United vs. Benfica

Manchester United FC vs. SL Benfica, UEFA Champions League Group A, Tuesday, October 30th, 19:45 GMT

Home Team Stats
Manchester United takes the field tomorrow against Benfica as head of group A after its latest winning streak. The last time these two met, Benfica added one more loss to their record, after conceding one goal and scoring none. It seems that Manchester is little affected by the location of the events, yielding similar results both at home as well as on the road. But the team’s ace in the sleeve seems to be its fabulous defensive strategy, a fact proven during Manchester’s last 10 performances when it conceded only 3 times.

Away Team Stats
At the opposite end, Benfica lost three times already in Champions League, which landed Rui Vitória’s team in the 4th place. The last time Benfica came face to face with Manchester, it lost on home turf. Even so, it seems the Portuguese play better at home, considering their last 30 performances. On Benfica’s side, their defense, currently on the rocks, will probably make way for a wave of goals from Manchester’s side. Out of Vitória team’s last 10 performances, Benfica conceded 7 times, won 3 matches, and drew 4.

Recent Developments
Manchester’s last 30 matches ended in 9 wins, 3 defeats, and 3 draws on the road, with a total of 12 goals conceded and 29 scored. At home, however, the team fared a little bit better, with 11 wins to show for it and 4 draws. On home turf, Manchester scored an impressive 34 times, and conceded nothing more than just 6 goals.

On the other hand, looking at Benfica’s latest 30 performances, it is clear that life on the road doesn’t suit the Portuguese, especially after only 5 wins to show for, an equal number of draws, and also 5 defeats. At home, however, the team proved much more formidable, but still falls short of Manchester’s record. Benfica won 10 times on its own stadium, drew once, and counted 4 losses in total.

Conclusion
All in all, it seems that Manchester’s strong defense will prove difficult to break for Benfica. Not to mention the fact that Mourinho will probably not settle for anything else other than a victory and maintaining the top position, as well. Even so, lots of goals should make their way in Benfica’s net, given that home advantage is not on Vitória’s side and his team’s defense is weak, to say the least, as it is.

Betting Tip / Leeds vs. Sheffield Utd.

Leeds United vs. Sheffield United FC, Championship 2017/2018, Friday, October 27th, 2017, 18:45 GMT

Home Team Stats
Leeds United is taking the field against Sheffield tomorrow coming in 4th place and a record of 7 wins, 4 losses, 2 draws, and 23 points. Based on the host’s recent 30 performances, it is clear that Leeds prefers playing in front of their fans, a fact supported by the 9 wins on home turf versus 6, on the road. However, during Leeds’ 10 previous matches in this competition, the team’s attack scored on a fairly regular basis, which raises even more concerns for the visitors.

Away Team Stats
Even though Sheffield United is ranked one place above Leeds and it doesn’t seem the home factor has any obvious effect over the team’s overall performance, Chris Wilder’s pride is taking the field after losing 2-1 to Nottingham Forest last time on the road. Moreover, the team’s last 6 games on foreign court Sheffield lost half of those matches. As far as the team’s attack goes, Sheffield has scored regularly across its last 10 performances, shaking the opponents’ nets 9 out of 10 games. As far as the last 30 encounters go, Sheffield secured 11 wins as a visitor, conceded 3 times, and drew once. At home, Wilder’s team managed to get its hands on 13 victories and counted 2 defeats.

Recent Developments
During its last 30 matches, Leeds managed to secure 9 victories at home, conceding only twice, and drawing 4 times with a total of 30 goals scored. Only 9 goals shook Leeds’ net. On the road, however, the team hasn’t fared as well, winning only 6 times, suffering an equal number of defeats, drawing three times, with 26 goals scored and almost as many conceded, more specifically 23.

Conclusion
If anything, tomorrow’s match will probably see an intense bout of goals on both sides of the field. However, Leeds does have an advantage over its opponents, namely the uncontested support of its fans at home. This could very well tilt the outcome in the host’s favor.

Betting Tip / West Ham vs. Brighton

West Ham United vs. Brighton and Hove Albion, Premier League, Friday, October 20th, 2017, 19:00 GMT

Home Team Stats
Coming in the 15th place, West Ham managed to gather up a total of 8 points with a record of 2 victories, 4 losses, and 2 draws. The team secured a victory on home turf against Swansea City and got its hands on a draw versus Burnley, with the final whistle putting the game to rest at a 1-1 score. Even though rather strong at home, in 8 games played in the Premier League so far, Bilic’s team conceded the first goal half of the times. Unfortunately, West Ham never managed to turn the score.

Away Team Stats
Just one place above its opponent, Brighton is currently holding Premier League’s 14th place. However, Chris Hughton’s team collected just as many points as its opponent, more precisely, 8, totaling just 2 wins, counting four losses, and tying up twice. During its last two performances, Brighton conceded two goals to Arsenal which also cost them the match, and drew against Everton at home at 1-1. When it comes to the home factor, it seems that just like West Ham, Brighton also prefers handling matters on their own stadium. 7 points collected at home and only 1 away stand to show for the team’s performance on the road.

Recent Developments
West Ham got 6 out of its 8 points on home turf, which makes most believe that Slaven Bilic’s team prefers to settle scores on familiar court rather than step into foreign territory. Also, out of its last 10 games for all competitions at home, West Ham counted 6 wins, suffered 3 losses and drew once.

Taking the field on Friday, Brighton is showcasing a draw against Everton, this one being the second game in the row that did not bring Hughton’s team a win in this competition. Knockaert, who scored the only goal against Everton, and March seem to be Brighton’s last hope for a favorable ending, given that these players are particularly fast and competent in the 1 to 1.

Conclusion
The match on Friday promises lots of opportunities for both teams, but West Ham probably will fight harder to keep its ground, even more so as they have the home advantage against Brighton. Nevertheless, the nets on both sides of the field will most likely be shaken well past the 1.5 goals marker in the midst of the confrontation between the two.

Betting Tip / Everton vs. Lyon

Everton vs. Olympique Lyonnais, UEFA Europa League Group E, Thursday, October 19th, 19:05 GMT

Home Team Stats
On Thursday, Lyon and Everton enter Goodison Park for their first ever head to head in Europa League’s Group E. Everton seems to be a team that prefers the familiarity of its own court, fact proven by its efforts of drawing the match against Apollon Limassol on home turf, right after suffering a crushing 3-0 loss against Atalanta. And it cannot get more obvious when you’re looking at the team’s performance across its latest 30 matches: 6 losses, 6 draws, and only 3 wins collected on the road, as opposed to a staggering 10 wins at home, just 3 losses, and 2 draws at home. But even if the field factor goes to Lyon, the team in still underachieving, coming in two places behind its opponent.

Away Team Stats
Lyon will take the field on Thursday evening against Everton as the 2nd ranked of Europa League’s Group E. Accumulating 2 points so far, which is 1 more than Everton currently has, Lyon managed to draw both matches played against Atalanta and Apollon Limassol. The main reason for concern is that Lyon’s spirits are soaring after snatching victory from right under Monaco and also does not seem to be affected by the home factor. During its last 30 matches, Lyon took home 6 wins, drew 5 matches, and suffered 4 losses on the road. On the other hand, the team’s performance did not suffer nor did it get considerably better while playing on home court, also shown by the stats: 9 wins, 2 losses, and 4 draws.

Latest Developments
As far as Lyon is concerned, the team has conceded 9 goals in its last 10 matched played in all competitions which may signal a red flag when it comes to its defense. On the other hand, the Frenchmen scored regularly across the board, which means their attack force is something to be reckoned with. Out of the last 10 matches for all competitions, Everton fared a little better than their opponents, bringing home 6 victories, 3 losses, and 2 draws. Lyon had to settle for only 4 wins, 2 losses, and 4 draws.

Conclusion
It is still a mystery what the end result might be, although we can assume with a fair degree of certainty lots of goals will be scored. Maybe the guests will make an extra effort to show off the best in them on foreign court, which could prove rather dangerous for the hosts. In any case, your own opinion on the matter is most welcomed on Jetbull, home of only the best deals.

Betting Tip / CSKA Moscow vs. FC Basel

CSKA Moscow vs. FC Basel, UEFA Champions League Group A, Wednesday, October 18th18:45 GMT

Home Team Stats
By the looks of it, CSKA Moscow seems to be a team that fares better when away from home. The numbers speak for themselves: out of the team’s last 30matches, 10 victories were added to its record while on the road, as opposed to 9 wins on home turf. CSKA Moscow’s players are in high spirits after securing a win against Krasnodar, also away from home.

Away Team Stats
Coming in hot for Wednesday’s match is FC Basel which currently holds the 2nd place of Grup A and doesn’t seem to put an end to what has been a great season for the team so far, going unbeaten for its last 4 games. As opposed to CSKA Moscow, it seems that Basel is little affected by the home factor. This means that the team performs fairly the same no matter the location of the match.

Latest Developments
CSKA Moscow takes the 3rd place in Group A with 3 points won following a win against Benfica which ended 1-2 and a loss to Manchester United, after conceding 4 goals.

On the opposite end, even though Manchester United beat FC Basel as well by 3-0, Moscow’s opponents to be sent Benfica home to weep on a 5-0 defeat. s

Conclusion
Going undefeated for the last 4 matches really highlights FC Basel’s strong defense and goes to show the team’s determination to keep going ahead with its great season so far. However, if anything, Moscow will do whatever necessary to get in Basel’s way and break free of its own fate while playing on home turf, which almost guarantees an intense match with lots of goals scored on both sides of the court.

Betting Tip / AS Monaco vs. Besiktas JK

AS Monaco vs. Besiktas JK, UEFA Champions League Group G, Tuesday, October 17th, 18:45 GMT

Home Team Stats
On Thursday, Monaco will have to gather every drop of motivation it can muster in order to keep its ground on home turf against Group G’s first place, Besiktas. Given the difference in points between the two teams, it seems Monaco will have to put up a good fight to stop Besiktas from getting its hands on a hat-trick. Stats look fairly balanced for both teams, as far as their last 30 matches went down.So far, Monaco proved constant while at home, as well as on the road, scoring 30 goals and conceding 25 away, while shaking the opponents’ nets 35 times and conceding 17 times at home. However, the Frenchmen together with Leipzig are the only ones that have not yet secured any victories in UEFA Champions League ‘s Group G.

Away Team Stats
Situated right at the top of the board, Besiktas boasts 6 points and 2 wins against RB Leipzig and Porto. Even though the team might fare better at home, this won’t stop Besiktas from going for three victories in a row, blowing Monaco out of the water in the process. The team’s attack force is particularly impressive which sets the stage for an intense event.

Recent Developments
Playing away from home, Monaco secured 8 wins, suffered 5 losses, and added 2 more draws at their record.  On home turf, the Frenchmen recorded 9 victories, suffered 3 defeats, and tied 3 matches.

On the other hand, Besiktas only got its hands on 5 wins, suffered 6 defeats, and tied 4 games while on the road as opposed to 11 wins, only 1 defeat, and 3 draws on home turf. Even though the team seems to fare better at home, let’s not forget that 26 out of its last 30 matches ended with Besiktas scoring over 1.5 goals every single time.

Conclusion
With a strong attack coming in from Besiktas and Monaco’s strong desire of securing its first victory in Group G, Tuesday’s match is going to light up the field, most probably literally as well. However, the game seems pretty balanced, which makes us wonder whether nobody is going home with a victory, but with just another draw in their pockets. Whatever the case, Jetbull’s forecast for tomorrow speaks for itself: high chances of goals scored on both sides of the court.

Betting Tip / Johanna Larsson vs. Viktorija Golubovic

Johanna Larsson vs. Viktorija Golubovic, WTA Linz 2017, October 13th, 14:00 GMT

Johanna Larsson and Viktorija Golubovic go head to head in what some consider one of the most disputed quarterfinals. Both have similar playing style and technique. However, Johanna Larsson is incredibly efficient on hard with a swift and powerful serve. The main reason for concern for Larsson comes whenever she finds herself on the receiving end. Both players move very well on the court, with Johanna taking the field in high spirits after defeating both Cepelova and Lepchenko. Golubovic is also highly motivated for this match, given she proved her worth against Siniakova and Tomova. Even so, Larsson has a slight advantage over her Swiss opponent, because of an improved physical condition and specific qualities superior to Golubovic’s. With this being said, there is a high chance of Johanna Larsson to secure the victory at odds of 1.71.

Betting Tip / Birmingham vs. Cardiff

Birmingham City FC vs Cardiff City FC, Championship, October 13th, 2017, 18:45 GMT
Out of the last three times these teams met on the court, every single match was a draw. And it didn’t stop there:  this also applied to the last 4 times out of 6 Cardiff went head to head against Birmingham on St. Andrew’s, with the sole exception being 1 win for one and one for the other.

While Cardiff maintains a 60% win ratio so far while away from home, Birmingham relies on the team’s new boss, Steve Cotterill and the transfers gone through at the last minute. Usually, this kind of change is regarded as a way to lift up a team’s spirits, but with so many player transfers Birmingham went through lately, one would be forced to question if that’s really the case here.

In 5 out of 6 games played lately, Cardiff kept its ground, which could tilt the scales towards double chance X2 at odds of 1.30. On the other hand, Birmingham scored at least one goal per match in over half the matches played this term, which means there is a high chance of over 2.5 goals being scored on Friday, at odds of 2.04.
