England : Premier League
Brighton vs Manchester City. (away win)
With the huge number of summer signings made by Manchester City this summer, Pep will have no reason not to guide the team to at least a silver ware success this season. There is so much optimism in the camp of “the sky blues” that they could win the league this season.
Brighton just gained promotion into the English Premier League and will be hoping to cause an upset in this tie. The club finished second behind Newcastle United in the English Championship last season. Pep and his lads know that this is a must win tie, if they are to prove to the rest of the world that they will be genuine title contenders this season.
My call for this one is an away win for Manchester City.
England : Premier League
Chelsea FC vs Burnley. (home team to score first goal)
The defending champions of the English Premier League will start their defense campaign with a tie against lowly rated Burnley. Having lost the final of the community shield tie played last weekend to Arsenal FC, Chelsea should be braced up for this one.
Burnley are not known for having good away runs of late, but I feel that the team will give this tie their best shot and see what it will bring in form of points to the team.
The Blues (Chelsea FC) should be the more offensive team in this tie, thus I am calling this one : “Chelsea FC to score the first goal” as the team will be playing at home and with the support of the Stamford Bridge fans, this should not be impossible.
France : Ligue 1
Bordeaux vs Metz. (12 & under 4.5)
This tie could be categorised as one of those “French league mid-table classic ties”, where any of the teams can win it. Bordeaux are the overwhelming favourites for this tie according to the book makers, but in ties like this, one can’t be too sure of that.
Metz ruffled some feathers last season in the league, so an upset should not be ruled out.
My calls on this tie, are for any of the teams to win and under 4.5 goals.
Scotland : Championship
Dundee Utd vs Queen of the South. (1x/12)
The Scottish Championship is a league where lots of goals are scored and most of the matches played in this league don’t usually end in draws.
The meaning of my call for this tie which is “1x/12”, is that the home team should either draw or win the first half and the entirety of the tie should not end in a draw. This is a unique option in betting that I feel should be explored by the fans of this forum.
All odds when calculated amounted to a little above the 3 odd multiplier.
