Football betting tips

101 Great Goals will be providing extensive coverage of the Premier League, Championship, Champions League, Europa League, England internationals and the major European games over the coming season and providing you with betting previews on all the matches and tournaments that matter.

All the big football match predictions will be available from 101 Great Goals over the season, with our crack team taking account of all the current form, transfer comings and goings and which teams can call upon a goalkeeper who doesn’t model his game on Joe Hart at Euro 2016. Having an owner who isn’t a narcissistic lunatic tends to help too when looking for winners.

Premier League (Title)

The Premier League title race has probably never been more open than it is this season, with little to choose between the top six teams in the betting.

Manchester City are the pre-season favourites at around 5/2, but Pep Guardiola looks to be giving his squad a bit of a youthful overhaul. Their rivals across town are a best price of 18/5, although if Paul Pogba’s long drawn-out transfer eventually materialises United could even go into the season as title favourites. Of the other leading contenders, Chelsea can be backed at 6/1, Arsenal are 13/2 in a few places and Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool can both be backed at 10/1 if you shop around.

After a few barren years, Manchester United might just be back in business. Love him or loathe him, Jose Mourinho does win trophies and with Zlatan Ibrahimovic giving the Red Devils some much-needed charisma on the pitch, there is a buzz about Old Trafford again.

Premier League (Bottom-half finish)

Champions Leicester City were brilliant last season, but the reality is that was almost certainly a one-off. N’Golo Kante has been sold and Riyad Mahrez looks unsettled. With the distraction of Champions League football, a return to the norm and a bottom-half finish could be on the cards at a tempting price of 5/2.

Premier League (Relegation)

At the other end of the table, the newly promoted teams are always among the favourites for a swift return to the Championship. This season is no different, with Hull City relegation favourites at around 8/11, Burnley are priced around evens for the drop and Middlesbrough available at a best price of 2/1. It’s difficult to argue with the first two, but Boro look capable of survival.

There are new owners at Swansea City, but most of the talk seems to be about player departures rather than new recruits. The current squad looks pretty threadbare and lacking in firepower after three striker sales over the summer. They could be prime relegation fodder at 4/1.

Hull have a squad short on numbers, no manager and owners who are looking to sell the club and have about as much appeal with the fans as winning a two-week vacation in ISIS-held Raqqa (self-catering). As it stands, these Tigers look stuffed.

Premier League (Top Goalscorer)

If Sergio Aguero can stay fit (always a bit of a long-shot) he will take some stopping in the Premier League top-goalscorer market at 7/2. That Swedish bloke at Old Trafford (10/1) might have a say too though and Harry Kane (6/1) should be raring to go again after being replaced with a clueless doppelganger at Euro 2016.

Championship

It’s rarely easy bouncing back to the Premier League at the first attempt following relegation, but convincing Rafael Benitez to stay on as manager might just swing it for Newcastle United. They are a very short price though and the better value could be backing Norwich City to maintain their yo-yo existence with promotion at a general 11/4.

La Liga

It should be another three-w ay battle for La Liga title glory between Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid. As things stand, Barcelona have made a few summer signings, but none that could be considered marquee players, while Real Madrid are little changed from last term, although Alvaro Morata is back from Juventus.

Diego Simeone opted to remain at Atletico Madrid as coach and they have added striker Kevin Gameiro from Sevilla to an already strong squad. They could be worth a look at 12/1 for the title.

The battle to avoid relegation is likely to feature newly-promoted minnows Leganes, but Eibar (not exactly a big club themselves) could be the team to back for the drop at 5/2 after two seasons of top-flight football.

Bundesliga

It looks likely that the German title race will again be a two-horse race between Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund. Dortmund lost several key players over the summer, but they’ve re-invested the proceeds in some excellent youngsters and the more established Mario Gotze (re-signed from Bayern after a couple of disappointing seasons with the champions) and Andre Schurrle.

Now under Carlo Ancelotti, Bayern are prohibitively priced at odds of around 1/6 at best. They will probably win the title, but taking a revamped Dortmund at a general 7/1 is the value bet and one that can potentially be traded on the betting exchanges.

Serie A

It’s nigh on impossible to oppose Juventus for the Scudetto in Serie A, with the champions having had an excellent summer transfer window in which they’ve not only strengthened their own squad, but weakened those of their two closest rivals in signing Gonzalo Higuain (Napoli) and Miralem Pranjic (Roma).

The best price available on Juve to win the title is only around 8/15, but it’s difficult to see any other outcome. Roma could prove to be the best of the rest and potential challengers should Juve be side-tracked by Champions League commitments.

Champions League

All the usual contenders should be vying for the Champions League, with La Liga’s Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid again likely to be there or thereabouts. Manchester City are probably the pick of the English challengers given the Guardiola factor and last season’s run to the semi-finals but Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain certainly can’t be discounted either.

The value pick could be Juventus though. Beaten finalists in 2015 and unlucky to go out to Bayern last season, they’ve strengthened their hand over the summer with some excellent signings and look cracking each-way value at 14/1.

The 101 Great Goals team will cover all the action in the Premier League and all the biggest games from the major European club competitions, European leagues and internationals when seeking out the best football tips.

Football odds and tips

Football betting odds are an indication of how likely a specific result or event is according to the online bookmakers. So for instance, If Team A were to be 1/2 (or 1.50 in European prices) to win a match, that can be calculated as 2 / (2 + 1) = 0.67. That is to say that there is a 67% chance that Team A will be victorious.

Were the opposing Team B priced at 4/1 (or 5.00) to win the match, we can calculate that as being 1 / (4 + 1) = 0.20. There is therefore a 20% that Team B would be victorious by their price.

The best football tips are those that provide the best value. So, for example, if you believe that Team A has more than a 67% chance of victory in the above (theoretical) match, then that would be a value bet. On the other hand, if you think Team B has more than a 20% chance of victory, then they would be the value football bet to lump on.
