Odds Alpha #4
Wow! What a week last week was. 3 winners from 4 tips and the Odds Alpha blog seems to be in terrific form at the moment. We first entered the winners enclosure on Tuesday night as Real Madrid dominated an ailing Liverpool side who had put themselves 2-0 to the good at Anfield. Madrid came out eventual 5-2 winners, a woeful result for the reds (RM tipped to win @ 3.22). Next, it was Manchester United’s turn to bring us the goods as they lifted the Carabao Cup with ANOTHER Marcus Rashford goal. We were on Man Utd. to win in 90 mins @ 2.18.
As if things couldn’t have got better, we crowned off the weekend’s proceedings on Sunday evening with one of the most hyped sports events of the past two years. I was always happy to stick my neck out and say that Tommy Fury should beat Jake Paul so was surprised to see the punters coming for Paul. Thankfully, this time I was right (although it was closer than expected!) - a nice winner @ 2.19 to close out the weekend! Let’s hope for more of the same this week…
Tip for The Week Ahead
Although there are two midweek fixtures in the Premier League, I don’t see betting opportunities in either.
At the weekend, however, there are a couple of big games to preview, although I can only see one angle over the weekend. Sometimes you just have to keep your money in your pocket.
Newcastle United will make the trip up to Manchester City on Saturday lunchtime having been beaten by City’s close rivals in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday. I am predicting a convincing City victory here against a deflated Newcastle side who seem to just be sliding off form when they don’t want to. City, on the other hand, are pushing for yet another title under their star manager Pep Guardiola.
The Selection: Manchester City - 1.5 @ 2.18
The Details: 12:30pm on 4th March 2023
And on Sunday afternoon, rivals Manchester United and Liverpool will meet in the headline fixture of the weekend. Although it is another perfect opportunity for the two sides to trade blows, I can’t really see a betting angle here. United’s form away from home hasn’t been impeccable this season and Liverpool, as terrible as they have been both home and away this year, occasionally pull it out of the bag in these big derby games. Anfield will be bouncing. No bet.
