Today - 21 August 2019

19:45 - QPR v Swansea City

Swansea City Win @ 21/10

Mark Warburton’s Queens Park Rangers and Steve Cooper’s Swansea City meet at Loftus Road in the EFL Championship in midweek. Although these two seem very well matched on paper, the home team are the slight favourites with the bookies. QPR were beaten for the first time under Warburton last weekend, so the London outfit will be desperate to hit back with all three points against the Swans at Loftus Road on Wednesday.

Rangers edged past Bristol City on penalties in the EFL Cup last Tuesday, but the Robins got revenge on Saturday, beating QPR 2-0 at Ashton Gate. That was the London club’s first defeat of the season, as they previously beat Stoke City and drew with Huddersfield Town in the league. Swansea have been excellent so far, claiming seven points from their opening three Championship encounters. After edging past Preston North End in a thriller at the Liberty Stadium in their last outing, we fancy the Welsh club to make it 10 points from 12 with another win in midweek. The Swans victory is available at 21/10.

19:45 - Fulham v Millwall

Fulham to Win 2-1 @ 7/1

Scott Parker’s Fulham and Neil Harris’ Millwall lock horns in a London derby in the EFL Championship on Wednesday. After losing their opening game, the Cottagers have hit their stride, securing back-to-back wins over Blackburn Rovers and Huddersfield Town. The Lions have made a stunning start to their campaign, winning three and drawing one of four league and cup games. This promises to be a cracking Championship contest at Craven Cottage.

The Cottagers kicked off their season with a 1-0 loss to Barnsley at Oakwell. However, Parker’s men have turned things around since then, securing successive league wins over Blackburn and Huddersfield. Millwall were one of the relegation favourites before the season got underway, but the Lions have made a sensational start. Sandwiched in between home wins over Preston and Sheffield Wednesday was a 1-1 draw at West Bromwich Albion. However, this will be a tough test for Millwall, and we can see Fulham making it three wins in a row. Check out the tempting odds of 7/1 for the home team to win 2-1 on Wednesday.

20:00 - West Brom v Reading

West Brom Win & BTTS @ 9/4

Slaven Bilic has made a solid start to life at The Hawthorns, guiding West Bromwich Albion to seven points from a possible nine in the EFL Championship. This Wednesday night, the Baggies host Jose Gomes’ Reading, who picked up an excellent 3-0 win over Cardiff City at the Madejski Stadium on Sunday. West Brom are the odds-on favourites in this one, but can the Royals cause the Baggies problems in the West Midlands?

West Brom recently had a frustrating week against Neil Harris’ Millwall. The Lions held West Brom to a 1-1 draw in the league before beating them at The Hawthorns in the EFL Cup a few days later. However, Bilic’s boys hit back last weekend, winning 2-1 at Luton Town. As for Reading, they thumped Neil Warnock’s Cardiff 3-0 last Sunday, with the superb George Puscas helping himself to a brace. Reading will be buoyed by that impressive victory, but West Brom should prevail in this one. Have a punt on the hosts to win and both teams to score at 9/4.

Tomorrow - 22 August 2019

19:00 - Legia Warsaw v Rangers

Draw @ 11/5

Steven Gerrard takes his Rangers troops to the Polish Army Stadium in Warsaw to face Aleksandar Vukovic’s Legia Warsaw on Thursday. This will be a tough test for the Scottish side, but the Gers will be looking for a positive result in Poland. Rangers have already played nine times in all competitions this term, winning eight and drawing one. Can Gerrard’s boys get something from Thursday’s trip to Warsaw?

Legia finished the regular Polish season in second place last term. However, they have had a mixed bag of results so far this season, winning two, drawing one and losing one of four in the league. In Europa League qualifying, Warsaw have beaten the likes of College Europa, KPS Kuopio and Atromitos. As for Rangers, the Scottish giants have seen off St Joseph’s, Niederkorn and Midtjylland on their way to the play-off round. This will be a stern test for the Gers, but we fancy the Scottish Premiership side to leave Warsaw with a draw (11/5).

19:45 - Celtic v AIK

Celtic to Win -1 Goal @ 11/8

Having been knocked out of UEFA Champions League qualifying, Celtic now face a two-legged UEFA Europa League play-off tie against Swedish side AIK. The first leg will take place at Celtic Park on Thursday. Reaching the Champions League group stage would have been number one priority, but now the Bhoys must make the Europa League group phase to avoid a European disaster.

The Hoops go into the tie as the strong favourites to progress through to the Europa League proper. As for this Thursday’s game, Celtic are priced at 9/20 to secure a win. However, AIK are a decent outfit, and the Swedish champions are more than capable of causing Neil Lennon’s side problems over the two legs. Nevertheless, the Scottish giants should make home advantage count on Thursday. We like the look of Celtic to win -1, which is available at the tempting odds of 11/8.

20:00 - Torino v Wolves

Wolves Win @ 11/5

Nuno Espirito Santo’s Wolverhampton Wanderers face Serie A side Torino in the Europa League play-off round. Wolves have beaten Crusaders and Pyunik to reach the final hurdle. Walter Mazzarri’s men, meanwhile, have seen off Debrecen and Shakhtyor. Wanderers have already played two Premier League matches, while Serie A has yet to get underway in Italy. Wanderers head to the Stade Olimpico Grande Torino as the slight underdogs.

Wolves have been on a remarkable rise under Santo over the last couple of years. Back in the 2016-17 season, the Midlands club finished in 15th place in the EFL Championship. Now, Wolves are in the Europa League after finishing in seventh spot in the Premier League last season. Can they win just one more tie to make the group stage? Torino, who finished seventh in Serie A last term, will be tough opponents for Wolves over the two legs, but we fancy the Premier League side to secure a narrow victory in Italy on Thursday. The away win is available at 11/5.

Football Bets

Our tips and predictions mainly focus on a few core bets. Chances are you're already familiar with these, but here's a quick run down just in case:

  • Win/Draw/Win - The simplest bet you can make... who will win the match?
  • HT/FT - The odds for the WDW markets are often quite low, especially when one team is heavily favoured. The halft-time/full-time market offers an opportunity to boost the odds by selecitng the result for both half time and the final whistle.
  • Handicap Betting - Another way to increase the odds on the match result is to add a handicap. For example, Arsenal -2 means that they effectively start the match at -2, meaning they need two goals more than the other team to draw and three more to win. 
  • Both Teams to Score - Originating in the Goals Galore market from Betfred, both teams to score has become incredibly popular. They frequently show up in accumulators and with odds usually below evens it's easy to see why. Other variations you may see in our tips are both teams not to score (BTTS No - where one or both teams won't score) and BTTS + Win, where the winner of the match is picked alongside the BTTS bet.
  • Over/Under - Another bet that's along the same lines as BTTS are over/under bets. Except here you're predicting whether the totaly number of goals will be above or below a target figure. The most comon example is 2.5 goals, although you can place these bets on a wide range of numbers. You can even bet on over 0.5 goals if you think it's going to be anything other than a 0-0 draw.
  • Correct Score - To really boost the odds, head to the correct score market. It's a hard bet to predict but it sometimes has value.
  • Goalscorer - You wont see these bets too frequently in our tips, but they do crop up from time to time if the value offered is good. Here we're picking who will score, either first, last or at any point in the match. For matches with a heavy favourite and a strong striker you may even see something along the lines of "Ronaldo to score two or more goals".
