Today - Thursday 26th November 2020
17:55 - Molde v Arsenal
In UEFA Europa League Group B on Thursday evening, Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal travel to Norway to take on Erling Moe’s Molde at the Aker Stadion. A win for the Gunners would see them safely through to the knockout stages of this season’s Europa League. The Premier League side will be the favourites in Molde, but the home team can be a tough nut to crack on their own patch.
In the reverse game at the Emirates Stadium earlier in the month, Arsenal came from behind to secure a comfortable 4-1 win in the end. In doing so, the London side took control of the group, moving three points clear of Molde. We fancy a similar kind of outcome in Norway on Thursday. Check out the Arsenal win and both teams to score at a nice price of 11/5.
17:55 - Sporting Braga v Leicester
Brendan Rodgers’ in-form Leicester City are well on their way to the knockout stages of the 2020-21 UEFA Europa League. The Foxes have looked the real deal in the Europa League so far, winning three out of three, scoring nine goals and conceding one up to this point. Leicester will be looking to make it 12 points from a possible 12 when they make the trip to Portugal to play Braga on Thursday.
City put on a stunning performance when the pair met at the King Power Stadium earlier in the month, running out impressive 4-0 winners. Kelechi Iheanacho helped himself to a brace, while Dennis Praet and James Maddison got the others. Our money is going on Leicester in this one. The Premier League outfit are available at odds of 11/4 to win with a -1 goal handicap.
17:55 - Sparta Prague v Celtic
Neil Lennon takes his Celtic troops to the Stadion Letna in Prague to play Vaclav Kotal’s Sparta Prague in UEFA Europa League Group H action on Thursday night. The Bhoys fell to an embarrassing 4-1 defeat when the two teams clashed at Celtic Park a few weeks back. Can the Scottish champions restore some pride in Prague?
Celtic have had a miserable Europa League campaign up until now, collecting just one point from three Group H fixtures. The Hoops are rock bottom of the group and have conceded nine goals already. Unfortunately for Lennon’s men, we can see them losing again in midweek. Sparta were sparkling in Glasgow in the reverse match, and we like the look of Prague to win with a -1 goal handicap on home soil this Thursday, which you can get at the top odds of 11/4.
20:00 - Tottenham v Ludogorets Razgrad
Tottenham Hotspur are involved in a huge UEFA Europa League fixture on Thursday night. With Spurs, Antwerp and LASK all on level of six points apiece in Group J, Tottenham will be looking for a big margin of victory when Stanislav Genchev’s Ludogorets Razgrad travel to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. As you would expect, Jose Mourinho’s men are the overwhelming favourites to seize the victory.
Spurs went to the top of the Premier League with an impressive win over Manchester City last time out. The London side have had a busy schedule this season, with Thursday’s game being their 17th match already. So far, Tottenham have been beaten just twice. Mourinho’s men should be far too strong for Bulgarian side in midweek. Have a punt on Tottenham to win both halves on home turf at odds of 4/6.
20:00 - Rangers v Benfica
Steven Gerrard’s Rangers have made an incredible start to their 2020-21 season, winning 18 and drawing three of their opening 21 league and cup matches. This Thursday night, the Gers will be looking for another victory when they entertain Portuguese giants Benfica at Ibrox in UEFA Europa League action. The Scottish Premiership leaders are level on points with Jorge Jesus’s Eagles ahead of this mouth-watering matchup.
These two sides played out a six-goal thriller at the Estadio da Luz, with Rangers letting a two-goal lead slip to leave Lisbon with a 3-3 draw. Nevertheless, the Gers are top of Group D. This will unquestionably be another stern test for Gerrard’s men, but we fancy the Scottish giants to secure an invaluable three points on home turf this Thursday. The Rangers win is nicely priced at odds of 21/20.
Tomorrow - Friday 27th November 2020
19:45 - Brentford v QPR
On Friday night in the EFL Championship, west London rivals Brentford and Queens Park Rangers lock horns at the Brentford Community Stadium. The Bees, who were many people’s favourites for promotion before a ball was kicked this season, could really do with maximum points having not won at home since beating Coventry City in mid-October.
Brentford do not lose many under Thomas Frank, but they head into this one having drawn each of their previous three at home and fans would have expected a much greater return than 17 points with 12 games gone. As for QPR, their 1-0 victory at Derby County earlier in the month remains their only away win of the season. We are backing Brentford to get back to winning ways on home soil with an easy victory on Friday. Put some money on the home side to be winning at half time and full time at a general price of 8/5.
19:55 - Tranmere v Brackley
Tranmere Rovers of EFL League Two welcome National League North side Brackley Town to Prenton Park this Friday for a second round tie in the Emirates FA Cup. Since losing four of five League Two games, Rovers have won each of their last five in all competitions ahead of Tuesday’s league clash with Carlisle United. They have looked impressive in those games but will Tranmere progress in the cup this Friday?
In round one, Rovers edged past Accrington Stanley at Prenton Park, with Corey Taylor and Peter Clarke netting in a 2-1 win. As for Brackley, they have beaten Billericay Town, Marske United and Bishops Stortford to reach the second round. Unfortunately for the away team, we can see League Two Tranmere being too strong for the Saints at Prenton Park. Back Keith Hill’s men to win -2 at 10/3, good value given they nine in their last two league clashes.
20:00 - Crystal Palace v Newcastle
Roy Hodgson’s Crystal Palace entertain Steve Bruce’s Newcastle United at Selhurst Park this Friday night. The Eagles are in mid-table in the Premier League having won four, lost four and drawn one of their opening nine matches. As for the Magpies, they have taken 11 points so far and currently sit four places beneath their opponents. This is a big game for both sides, but who will come out on top in the capital?
Palace have lost two of their last three, but they did thump Leeds United 4-1 in their previous home game. Since beating Everton 2-1 at St James’ Park, Newcastle have lost back-to-back games to Southampton and Chelsea. Hodgson’s side will be hoping to make home advantage count in this one. Check out the home win and both teams to score at the very chunky odds of 4/1.
Saturday 28th November 2020
12:30 - Brighton v Liverpool
Graham Potter’s Brighton & Hove Albion and Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool go head-to-head at the Amex Stadium in Premier League action this Saturday afternoon. After last weekend’s impressive 3-0 home win over Leicester City, the champions moved joint top of the Premier League, level on points with Tottenham Hotspur. The in-form Reds will be looking for another comfortable victory when they take on Albion on Saturday as they continue to make light of their injury issues.
Brighton picked up a fine win of their own last weekend, seeing off Aston Villa at Villa Park. That was the Seagulls’ first league victory since winning at Newcastle United on matchday two. Brighton are always competitive and have pushed a number of the best sides very close this term already. However, Liverpool’s qualities should shine through in East Sussex. Check out the tempting odds of 6/4 for Klopp’s boys to be winning at half time and full time at the Amex.
12:30 - Reading v Bristol City
On Saturday afternoon in the EFL Championship, Veljko Paunovic’s Reading and Dean Holden’s Bristol City meet at the Madejski Stadium. The Royals raced out of the blocks to fire themselves to top spot, winning seven of their opening eight. However, the Berkshire club have struggled to replicate that form in recent matches. Bristol City also won four out four at the start, but the Robins have been in fine fettle of late following a minor blip.
Reading won their opening four Championship home games, scoring seven and conceding none. Expected goals stats suggested their run would not continue long and so it proved. Their last two in particular have been horror shows, losing 3-0 to both Preston North End and Stoke City. Bristol City have been excellent on the road under Holden, winning four of their opening six. We are backing the Robins to seal another three points (15/8) away from home on Saturday.
12:30 - Morecambe v Solihull Moors
Derek Adams’ Morecambe and James Shan’s Solihull Moors lock horns at the Mazuma Stadium on Saturday in second round Emirates FA Cup action. The Shrimps are currently in 14th spot in the EFL League Two table, winning five, losing five and drawing four so far. Solihull have played just seven times in the National League, winning four games. Who will progress to round three of the FA Cup and can the non-league side cause an upset?
In the previous round, Morecambe secured a narrow away win over Maldon & Tiptree, with an Adam Phillips penalty sparing their blushes in Essex. The Moors beat Wrexham 4-0 before winning 3-2 at Scunthorpe United in round one earlier in the month. We fancy the National League side to edge past League Two opponents once again. Take a punt on the away victory and both teams to score at the really tempting price of 13/2.
15:00 - Manchester City v Burnley
Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City will be eager to get back to winning ways in the Premier League after last weekend’s disappointment at Tottenham Hotspur. This Saturday, City welcome Sean Dyche’s Burnley to the Etihad Stadium. The Clarets have a horrid recent record against the Manchester giants, losing 10 of the last 11 league and cup meetings and they will be fearful of a backlash from the home side. City are the big favourites in this one.
Man City’s Premier League season has yet to take off to say the very least. The Citizens are down in 13th spot having picked up just 12 points from eight games as they struggle to score the goals their dominance merits. However, after last weekend’s defeat at Spurs, Pep’s troops will be out for blood in this one. Burnley secured their first league win of the season last time out, but we can see Dyche’s side crashing to a heavy defeat at the Etihad. Back Man City to win -2 at decent odds of 6/5.
15:00 - Bradford v Oldham
Bradford City and Oldham Athletic face off in an all-EFL League Two Emirates FA Cup tie on Saturday. The winners at Valley Parade will book their spot in the third round of the competition and possibly a glamour tie against a big Premier League side. Both teams have had tough starts to their respective league campaigns, with the Bantams down in 20th, while the Latics are three places and four points better off.
Oldham made a poor start to their season but have certainly turned a corner of late. Harry Kewell’s boys have won five of their previous six in all competitions. On Tuesday, they picked up an excellent 4-3 win at Barrow, while they have won four on the spin on their travels. Bradford have lost three of their last four and so Athletic will fancy their chances in this one. We feel the away win is nicely priced at 15/8.
15:00 - Portsmouth v King’s Lynn Town
Kenny Jackett’s Portsmouth of EFL League One welcome National League side King’s Lynn Town to Fratton Park this Saturday for a second round tie in the Emirates FA Cup. Pompey are flying high in fourth place in League One at present after seven wins from their opening 14. As you would expect, the home side are the overwhelming favourites in this one and we expect them to deliver the goods.
Jackett’s side edged a thriller at Portman Road in round one. They let a two-goal lead slip to fellow League One high flyers Ipswich Town, but Sean Raggett’s 111th-minute strike put Pompey through to the second round. King’s Lynn beat Port Vale on the road in the last round, but we can see Portsmouth being far too strong for them at Fratton Park. The hosts are available at nice enough odds of 6/4 to win both halves.
17:30 - Everton v Leeds United
Two great managers are up against each other here as Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton and Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds United go head-to-head at Goodison Park in a fascinating Premier League fixture on Saturday evening. This will be the first Premier League meeting between the two famous clubs since April 2004. After a much-needed win last time out, can the Toffees make it back-to-back victories? The home side are the favourites and with their brilliant front three back together they will fancy their chances of breaching this weak Leeds backline.
After going four games without a win, last weekend’s 3-2 victory at Fulham will have been a big relief for Everton. Leeds have been competitive so far, but they head to Merseyside having won just one of their last six. This has the potential to be an exciting yet close fought game at Goodison, though we can see the home side nicking the points. You can get the big price of 3/1 for the hosts to win by one goal.
17:30 - Peterborough v Chorley
Darren Ferguson’s Peterborough United have made an excellent start to their EFL League One season, sitting just two points off top spot in second after 14 games. The Posh will be looking for a comfortable win in the Emirates FA Cup this Saturday when they welcome National League North side Chorley to London Road. Will United ease into round three, or can the Magpies cause an almighty and unlikely upset?
After back-to-back losses, Peterborough returned to winning ways in League Two on Tuesday night, with Jonson Clarke-Harris’ goal giving them a vital 1-0 win over Plymouth Argyle. On the whole, Ferguson’s boys have been excellent on home turf this season, and United should cruise past lower league opposition in the cup at the weekend. Peterborough are priced at 8/15 to be winning at half time and full time and that looks a nice addition to any Saturday accas.
20:00 - West Brom v Sheffield United
West Bromwich Albion and Sheffield United square off in a huge Premier League fixture at The Hawthorns on Saturday night. These two sides are the only ones left in the top tier without a win, with the Blades bottom on one point, while the Baggies are two points above with three points to their name. Will we see a winner at The Hawthorns?
Since draws with Burnley and Brighton & Hove Albion, West Brom have lost each of their last three in the Premier League. As for Sheffield United, they have lost eight of their opening nine, with their only point coming against fellow strugglers Fulham. With both teams in woeful form, we fancy this one to end in an uneventful draw. Put a few quid on the draw and under 2.5 goals at 5/2, with 0-0 a real possibility in what is sure to be a game where both sides are determined not to lose.

Also included with the predictions are the trends and stats to back up the argument which may lead you to draw your own conclusions.
Are You Always Right?
It is important to note that not all predictions will come true. This is an important fact to consider and something that many tips sites try to lead you to believe otherwise. In fact, if anyone tries to tell you they always win then they are almost certainly lying.
Success in betting comes from winning more than you lose, not winning every bet. To do this we need to find bets that have a good chance of winning but also where the odds are attractive enough to make the risk worthwhile.
How Does Value Betting Work?
There are many articles on the web that explain value in betting but it can be quickly illustrated through a coin toss which should have a 50-50 chance of being either heads or tails. For the purposes of this example, let’s assume that we toss the coin ten times and achieve and equal number of heads and tails (so five of each).
Scenario 1: True Odds
We bet £10 per toss on heads at the true odds of evens:
- Heads: 5 x £10 = +£50
- Tails: 5 x -£10 = -£50
- Net Result: £0
At the end of our ten tosses we’re at zero.
Scenario 2: Poor Value
For our second example let’s incorporate the bookmakers margin, meaning that we only receive odds of 4/5 on our winning bets.
- Heads: 5 x £8 = +£40
- Tails: 5 x -£10 = -£50
- Net Result: -£10
Because of the reduced odds on our winning bets we now lose £10 overall.
Scenario 3: Good Value
In our final example let’s assume that the person you’re betting against has miscalculated the chances and pay out at 6/5 for heads:
- Heads: 5 x £12 = +£60
- Tails: 5 x -£10 = -£50
- Net Result: +£10
Here we’ve made a profit of £10, purely because of the difference in the odds and these are the bets you want to try and find.
