Boald Codes: La Liga Title Race, Mock Champions League Final and Others

We are neck deep in that time of the season. Some teams are in dire need of points to win the league, qualify to play on the continent or escape relegation. There are also the spoilers, who have nothing to play for.

More than ever, we need to pick our games more carefully. This is probably not a time for long tickets like toilet rolls, most of them will end up in the bin. As we always say, ours is to supply the pass, yours is to finish. It is either you are Harry Kane or you are Yaya Sanogo. As usual, we have the Bankers, the Banana Peels and the Boald Call.

BANKERS

We start from Africa, where table-topping Simba should at least play a draw against Young Africans in the Tanzanian league, 1x comes at around 1.2.

In the NPFL, Rivers United to win at home against Dakkada comes at 1.3, go for it. You could also play home win for Akwa United against struggling Sunshine Stars but that won’t come at good odds, an over 1.5 should come through there also.

Trust Manchester City not to lose at home against Chelsea. Both sides need the maximum three points, it could be cagey. A Manchester City double chance is a safe bet at 1.2.

Manchester City could win the league this weekend

Liverpool have to keep winning to push for a continental slot. Trust them to win at home against Southampton, it comes at around 1.3.

For Barcelona against Atletico Madrid, a draw will not be enough for both sides. Expect both sides to try get goals. An over 1.5 should be a safe bet at 1.3.

Dortmund vs RB Leipzig should be a goals game. Both teams need to go for it. Both to score comes at 1.5, go for it.

Bayern Munich need to wrap up the Bundesliga as soon as possible. Robert Lewandowski is back. They should win at home against Borussia Mochengladbach, it comes at around 1.3.

Juventus can’t win the league but they can’t afford to miss out of the Champions League. They should at least avoid defeat against AC Milan. 1x comes at around 1.2, go for it.

Atalanta should win at already relegated Parma. It comes at around 1.2.

BANANA PEELS

Spezia need the points to avoid relegation and have shown some intent lately, including a draw against Inter Milan. They also won the first leg against Napoli. Be careful with Spezia vs Napoli.

You are not sure of the Inter Milan you will get. They are already champions and they play against ba Sampdoria side that have virtually nothing to play for. Be careful with this tie.

Already relegated Sheffield United take on inconsistent Crystal Palace. As we saw in their last home match, Sheffield might want to go down in a high. With nothing to play for, anything can happen.

Be careful with Real Madrid against Sevilla. Sevilla are outsiders in the title race and could be spoilers for a Real Madrid side that may have yet to recover from their Champions League exit.

Real Madrid might still be wounded.

BOALD CALL

In Ligue 1, Nantes are giving their quest to escape relegation a good push. After back-to-back impressive away wins, they should win at home against fellow strugglers Bordeaux. It comes at over 2.0. If you are bold go for it.

At this point, we wish you the best of luck. Terms and conditions apply. Hold the players and managers responsible if anything goes wrong but send your tithes here if you win.

Have a green weekend.

Boald Codes: FA Cup, Copa Del Rey and Other Betting Tips

If you banked on our bankers last week you must have smiled to the bank. We were on point like decimal. That’s how stars do. We go again today, threading with caution as usual.

We have selected our bankers we believe will definitely happen, going by permutations. We have the Banana Peels – the matches you should try to avoid and the Boald Call for the bold to stake on.

BANKERS

In La Liga, Atletico Madrid are due a win, there is no better place to start than a home win against Eibar. Atletico are valued at around 1.5 for a win. Eibar are bottom of the table and have not won any of their last nine matches.

In the Copa Del Rey, Athletic Bilbao take on Barcelona. Bilbao are always tricky opponents. They defeated Barcelona in the Super Cup and lost out narrowly in last year’s final played recently. However, Barcelona should be up for this. They were in good form before losing the El Clasico last week. Barcelona should win this, it comes at around 1.6.

Messi and his teammates should be up for this

Crotone will play Udinese in Serie A. A common feature of Crotone’s matches is goals. They score in abundance and concede in abundance. Over 1.5 comes at around 1.2. You could go for more and do an over 2.5.

Still in Serie A, Lazio are in good form and have won their last four. They take on Benevento, who have just one win in nine – interestingly against Juventus. At around 1.4, Lazio should get a win. They also have a good record against Benevento.

PSG knows a win can take them to the top of Ligue 1, they should win at home against St Etienne, it comes at around 1.3.

Atalanta vs Juventus should produce goals. You can go for over 1.5 or over 2.5, or a BTS, which we are recommending. It comes at around 1.4.

Marseille vs Lorient in Ligue 1 should produce a home side double-chance. Marseille have a better home record, just as Lorient do not have a good away record. Marseille double chance is around 1.2.

BANANA PEELS

Like last week, still avoid Bayern Munich for now. They go away to Wolfsburg with lots of their top players out injured. Wolfsburg are in good form. They have lost just two of their last nine. It will be a tricky one.

Chelsea against Manchester City in the FA Cup is tricky. Chelsea are more solid defensively under Thomas Tuchel and it could be a bedrock for a cup success. A safe bet might be a Manchester City double chance as this match might not produce goals. Stay away, if you can.

Expect a keenly contested tie

BOALD CALL

Norwich are on the verge of gaining promotion back to the Premier League. They have tough opponents in fellow promotion contenders Bournemouth this weekend. Norwich are unbeaten in nine, seven wins in those. In that time, Bournemouth have lost just once, seven wins. With promotion very close, Norwich should be poised for a win. It comes at over 2.0. If you are Boald, go for it.

That’s all for today. We have supplied the assists, the finishing skills is yours.

We will always advise you to bet responsibly. Don’t stake a money that will affect you. We wish you the luck of the green.

Boald Codes: FA Cup, Old Firm Derby and Others

Even if last week was not so green, we go again. Person wey dey find greens no dey rest. We have gone through the plethora of matches to pick those we believe will help us make some coins this weekend. As usual, we have our Bankers, Banana Peels and Boald Calls. As we always say, bet responsibly, neither we nor you will play the matches. So, we die there does not suffice.

BANKERS

All things being equal, Chelsea should beat Sheffield United comfortably in one the FA Cup quarter-final ties. Chelsea are still unbeaten under Tuchel, they play a Sheffield side that are out of sorts. Chelsea is valued at 1.26 for a win.

Tuchel is unbeaten in Chelsea

Be careful with the other FA Cup ties, they could be tricky. Everton vs Manchester City should produce an over 1.5, at least.

Atletico Madrid have only La Liga to hold on to now, they should win at home against Alaves, at 1.41. Alaves have not won any of their last five matches.

Bayern Munich should win at home against Stuttgart. Stuttgart are in good form but should find Bayern too much. Bayern win is valued at 1.28.

Hertha Berlin vs Bayer Leverkusen should produce goals. Both can score and concede. Over 1.5 is 1.25.

Juventus have the Serie A to try fall back on after crashing out of the Champions League. They should do enough to defeat Benevento. It comes at around 1.22. Benevento have not won any of their last ten matches in the Serie A.

Lille will want to return to winning ways in Ligue 1. They host Nimes and should win. They are valued at 1.30 for a win.

Lyon vs PSG is the match of the weekend in Ligue 1. They are second and third, level on points. PSG double chance is 1.40. Though they have been inconsistent in the league this season, they should do enough to at least avoid a defeat against Lyon.

Lyon vs PSG is delicately poised

Portuguese league in-form team Sporting Lisbon should defeat Vittoria Guimaraes at home. It comes at 1.5. Vittoria lost their last two matches. Only FC Porto have been able to pick a point against Sporting in their last eight matches.

In the South African PSL, giants Mamelodi Sundowns should win at home against Black Leopards. They are valued at 1.30. Sundowns are top of the table while Black Leopards are bottom. Sundowns have won all of their last 10 matches against Black Leopards.

BANANA PEELS

As stated earlier, be careful with the FA Cup matches in England. Form could be thrown out the window in cup matches.

Aston Villa host Tottenham in one of the Premier league matches. Tottenham are wounded but they go away to a very difficult Aston Villa. It is a match that will struggle for goals. Avoid a Tottenham win especially.

Barcelona go away to the Anoeta, always a tough ground for them bar two of the last three seasons. Barcelona have found some form recently but will find Sociedad very difficult. Avoid a Barcelona win.

Roma vs Napoli looks finely poised. It could swing either ways. Napoli’s recent penchant to make this sort of ties low scoring means you should avoid the goals game.

BOALD CALL

Schalke 04 are almost dead and buried in the Bundesliga and have been in terrible form. They host a Borussia Mochengladbach side low on confidence. Schalke could pull a shocker. Schalke double chance is 2.5. Go for it, if you are bold. Gladbach have not won any of their last six matches in the Bundesliga, coupled with defeats on the continent.

In the Old Firm Derby, Celtic host Rangers. Rangers have won the league but Celtic have pride to play for. Rangers are also coming off the back of a rough night in the Europa League. Celtic win is around 2.5. Go for it, if you are bold.

The Old Firm Derby is always feisty

There you have our picks for this weekend. Once again, bet responsibly. Don’t stake your school fees or house rent, you might win becoming a dropout that sleeps under the bridge. If you win, pay your tithes here. Have a swell and green weekend.

Boald Code: Madrid and Manchester Derbies, Der Klassiker and Other Betting Tips

If you followed our tips last week, congratulations. We came through with almost all our calls. We dey feel like Nostradamus right now.

It is another week and we have carefully gone through the various matches once again. We have selected those we believe are the Bankers – that we believe will come through, the Banana Peels – the games you should avoid and the Boald Call – big odds you should play only if you are bold.

Bankers

We start from Africa where the CAF Champions League takes center stage. We are going for home wins for Al Ahly and Wydad Casablanca against AS Vita and Horoya respectively. Al Ahly are defending champions, Wydad are penultimate champions. You can always trust this top guns to get the job done at home.

In the English Championship, in-form Norwich host Luton. Norwich have won their last six and are top of the table. Go for a Norwich win at around 1.4/1.5 across platforms.

In the Premier League, West Brom vs Newcastle should be a cagey affair. An under 3.5 should be a good choice. You could also go for no goal in the first 30 minutes. Or first half under 1.5 which comes at around 1.3.

In La Liga, Real Sociedad are unbeaten in six. They host Levante at the Anoeta. Levante could be tricky customers but Real Sociedad’s form should be enough to get a win. It comes at around 1.4.

The Madrid Derby should be a cagey affair. Under 3.5 full-time or under 1.5 halftime should be good choices.

A Madrid derby with title-deciding implications

In the Bundesliga, Der Klassiker is always a game of goals. Over 2.5 should come through or go for a Bayern Munich over 1.5. At around 1.3/1.4 odds across platforms.

In the NPFL, go for home wins for Plateau United, Rivers United and Enyimba against MFM, Jigawa and Ifeanyi Ubah respectively.

In Turkey, title-chasing Besiktas host Gaziantep. Besiktas are in good form and have won their last four. Go for a Besiktas win at around 1.4.

In Ukraine first-placed Dynamo Kiev host Minaj, who are in twelfth. Dynamo Kiev are in good form, back them to win.

In Scotland, Rangers host St. Mirren. Stephen Gerard’s men have won all of their last five against St. Mirren. Go for a Rangers win.

Banana Peels

In the Premier League, there are so many banana peels.

Avoid Leicester to win away at the Amex stadium. Brighton are usually a compact side, though they struggle for goals. Leicester are injury-plagued and may be at that point where their performance level starts dropping.

Manchester City should win at home against Manchester United but you don’t know the Manchester United that will turn up. Manchester United’s likely defensive approach makes it difficult to predict. It may also not produce goals.

The Manchester derby seems tricky

Barcelona seems to be in good form but they have shown some level of inconsistency this season. They should win away at Osasuna but a goals game might be a safe option. Osasuna won at Camp Nou last season.

Boald Call

In the Bundesliga, Wolfsburg are in good form. They play away against a stuttering Hoffenheim side. Wolfsburg have won on their last two trips there. If you are bold, go for a Wolfsburg win at around 2.4.

Those are our picks for today. Don’t forget to bet responsibly.

If goes the other way, hold the clubs and the players responsible. Terms and conditions apply.

Boald Codes: Betting Tips For The Weekend

So, you have started making those plans. How you will hit it big in betting and finally buy that house in Banana Island and buy that dream car. Now, come back from dreamland, na so dream am last year. On that note, Happy New Year – this is the first Boald Codes for the year.

Winning bets has to do with sensible permutations and lots of luck. So, as we always say, lower your expectations and bet responsibly. We have made some picks to guide you as you stake this weekend. It is quite a tricky weekend with cup matches in England, never devoid of upsets. There is also the matter of COVID-19, that is forcing some teams to play without their best legs.

Banker

In Germany, third placed Bayer Leverkusen should get back to winning ways against struggling Werder Bremen. Bremen have just one win from their last eight matches. At around 1.4, 1.5, Bayer are good value for a win.

Atalanta are back in form and should win away at Benevento. Benevento are in decent form but should find the firepower of Atalanta too much. Atalanta win comes at around 1.6.

AC Milan suffered their first defeat of the season against Juventus in midweek, trust them to bounce back with a home win against Torino, who have won just one in nine matches.

In the NPFL, Katsina United should win at home against Adamawa United, who are not known to be good travellers.

Rivers United should win at home against Kwara United. Kwara got a surprise win at Plateau United in the first week but Rivers have had a very good start to the season. Trust them for a win.

In the English FA Cup, go for wins for Brentford and Manchester United at home against Middlesbrough and Watford respectively. Both teams lost out in the semifinals of the Carabao Cup but expect them to bounce back as they try to go on another good cup run. Both teams are also in good form.

Bruno Fernandes is in good form

Lille will aim to get back to winning ways when they travel to bottom placed Nimes. Nimes have just one win in ten and have not won in their last seven. Bank on Lille for an away win.

Banana Peels

The careful with the English FA Cup matches generally.

Be careful with the FA Cup matches

In the NPFL, avoid going for a MFM home win against Sunshine Stars. MFM tend to struggle at home against fellow South-Western teams.

Stoke at home against Leicester will be tricky. Rodgers tends to always rotate, and with a good league finish in their sight they may not be at their best against Stoke, who had a good run in the Carabao Cup.

Boald Call

Tenth placed Cadiz host fourteenth placed Alaves. Cadiz have gone off the boil a little after a very good start. At 2.6 for a home win against Alaves, it could be worth the risk.

Hertha Berlin have lost just once in five, they go away to Arminia Belefield, who have just two wins in ten. At around 1.8, Hertha Berlin is worth the risk for a win.

There you have it, our picks for the weekend. Blame the players in case of any hiccups. Remember to bet responsibly and pay your tithes here if you win.

Boald Codes: Betting Tips for the Weekend

We go again. Everyday for the bookies, one day for the punter. As results continue to get interesting across football leagues, it becomes more necessary to be extra careful when making predictions. It is the period where you likely become more desperate but caution is the word.

Teams ability to produce surprising results is why bookies are in business. The lesser the matches you have on your ticket, the higher your chances of winning. Before maga go maga the maga.

Now that we are done with the preaching, here are our picks for the weekend, selected after careful study of form, stats and antecedents.

BANKERS

Manchester United vs Leeds United used to be a big tie in the Premier League, they have some sort of rivalry. Go for a goals game, like over 2.5 comes at around 1.4. As we have seen recently, Manchester United don’t seem to be able to keep clean sheets, also trust them to score goals and Leeds won’t sit back.

Sam Allardyce takes charge at West Brom. The first thing Big Sam fixes is the defence. Aston Villa are also inconsistent in front of goal. Go for a under 3.5 in West Brom vs Aston Villa. It comes at around 1.4.

The relegation battle expert is back

RB Leipzig have been getting the job done, trust them for a win over struggling Cologne. RB Leipzig are unbeaten in six. It comes at around 1.30.

First vs Second in the Bundesliga. Bayer Leverkusen top the table and are in very good form. They host a Bayern Munich side that will be eager to lay down the marker. Go for goals over 2.5 or GG.

Inter Milan should win against Spezia at the San Siro. Nothing much to say about it. Inter have won their last five, Spezia have not won in five

Atletico Madrid will want to return to winning ways at home against Elche, after losing for the first time this season last week in the Madrid Derby. Go for an Atletico win, it comes at around 1.2.

BANANA PEELS

Tottenham host Leicester. Try to avoid a Tottenham win. Leicester have done well away from home in big matches. Brendan Rodgers will likely give Jose Mourinho a taste of his own medicine. Defend and play on the counter.

Mourinho vs Rodgers will be an interesting battle

Lille vs PSG is also first versus second. Avoid a PSG win. Lille are a very good and difficult side. As we saw last week when Lyon won away at PSG and earlier in the season when Marseille defeated them, PSG are not so invincible against the top sides in Ligue 1. Lille won this tie 5-1 last year.

Barcelona have won two on the bounce in La Liga but can’t be said to have turned the corner. They host Valencia in what is a very tricky tie. Avoid this tie or avoid a Barcelona win.

BOALD CALL

Our Boald call is an interesting one. It comes from Germany. Schalke 04 have not won in 26 matches. Their opponents Arminia Bielefeld have one win in nine. It is a relegation six pointer. If you are bold, go for Schalke to win it. It comes at around 2.3. If Schalke don’t beat Bielefeld at home, who will they win?

Boald Code: Madrid Derby, Manchester Derby and Other Betting Tips For The Weekend

Ticket bursters have been doing their best to stop us from doing detty December but we no go gree. However, as we have always said, you have to be very careful and bet responsibly. Ours here is to give you the assists, yours is to finish. While we are supplying the assist, remember your finishing skills is also important to score a goal. A word is enough for the wise. To our picks of the weekend.

Bankers

Wolves double chance at home against Aston Villa comes at around 1.25, it is a good one to bank on. Wolves will look to bounce back from their trouncing at the hands of Liverpool last week. Aston Villa have had an extra week of rest but Wolves know how to navigate this sort of matches.

Fulham host Liverpool at Craven Cottage. Fulham have gotten better but they don’t look like they are equipped to stop the top sides. Liverpool win comes at around 1.3. Go for it.

Arsenal vs Burnley may also pass for a boald call based on Arsenal’s form but you can trust the Gunners to return to winning ways. Around 1.5 odd is juicy. Arsenal also have a good home record against Burnley.

In Germany, in-form RB Leipzig host struggling Werder Bremen. A Leipzig win comes at around 1.3. It is worth staking on.

Third placed CSKA Moscow host eleventh placed Ural in the Russian League. CSKA win comes at around 1.3, it is worth taking to the banks.

The Egyptian league returns, money bags Pyramids host Al Ittihad. Pyramids to win comes at around 1.5, go for it. Pyramids were third last season, Al Ittihad finished tenth.

On the matters of the Derbies, goals game is your best bet. For the Madrid Derby, expect both sides to be cautious, under 3.5 comes at around 1.2, go for it. For the Manchester Derby, both sides have not been convincing consistently, expect both sides to go for it. It should produce goals, over 1.5 is around 1.2.

The Manchester Derby should produce goals

Banana peels

Be careful with Crystal Palace vs Tottenham. Zaha is back for Palace, they are a different proposition with him in the side. Palace know how to set up in this sort of matches. Be careful with going for a Tottenham win, though the odd is good.

Well, AC Milan for the upteenth time. They have been proving us wrong for some time but we feel they are due a bad result. Parma have not been good but they know how to turn up for big games, like they did against Inter Milan earlier. Be careful with going for an AC Milan win.

Borussia Dortmund have suffered what looks like a mini slump in the Bundesliga, coinciding with Erling Haaland’s injury. They have failed to win in their last two. They are up against a Stuttgart side that have lost just once in five, though they drew three of those. As we saw against Bayern some weeks back too, they could be difficult to beat. Avoid a Dortmund win.

Boald Call

The ultimate Boald call, the Madrid Derby ending in a draw comes at around 3.3. We expect both teams to cancel each other out in what may end goalless or 1-1. If you are very Boald, go for it.

Atalanta to win at home against Fiorentina comes at around 1.6. It is a lesser Boald call, you can include it in your banker. Atalanta have become more pragmatic this season, basking in the euphoria of reaching the Champions League last 16, you can bank on them to win against struggling Fiorentina.

As stated earlier, na pass we dey give, finishing dey your hand. Bet responsibly and if you win, send your tithes here make we sef do detty December. Wishing you best of luck.

Boald Codes: Chelsea, Bayern and other Betting Tips for the Weekend

If you have been careful before, you have to be extra careful now. Especially with how some expected sure teams have been falling short. Last weekend was red, o bad gan. We have tried selecting some games but most especially give you tips, which you should consider following.

The North London derby is the biggest match of the weekend

Bankers

Many things being equal, these results should come through. They are the ones we can bank our money on. Also because the odds are good.

In form Chelsea host Leeds United at the Stamford Bridge. Leeds, usually involved in high scoring matches have had better defensive records in their last two matches, keeping two clean sheets and scoring one in their last two. However, things should be different against Chelsea. Trust a goals game, over 2.5 comes at about over 1.5.

In La Liga, second-placed Atletico Madrid will host 17th placed Real Valladolid. You can trust Atletico to win, it comes at around 1.4.

Big game in Germany, Bayern Munich host RB Leipzig. It is first vs second. Bayern always win this sort of games. You can go for a Bayern win at around 1.4. If you are scared of that, you can also go for goals, over 2.5.

In Italy, there is the Turin Derby. It is a derby Juventus always win. Juve have struggled without Ronaldo. Ronaldo should play and Juve should win. It comes at around 1.4.

Banana Peels

AC Milan are due a bad result. They go away to Sampdoria, it is a tricky match. AC Milan are top in Serie A, Sampdoria are 11th on the table. If you can, avoid staking an AC Milan win.

Montpellier vs PSG. You can avoid a PSG win. PSG will have their sight on the Champions League match in mid-week. They may not be putting their best foot forward.

Tottenham host Arsenal in the North London derby. The Lillywhites are in good form but it is the type of derby you will want to stay away from. Expect Arteta to set up Arsenal to be compact. Also with some sketchy news on the available players, it is better to stay off this match.

Boald Call

Parma vs Benevento is 16th vs 15th in the Serie A. Parma have a nack of providing shock results. A win against Benvento should not be much of a shocker, the odd is around 2.0, go for it if you are bold.

In the CAF Champions League qualifiers, Stade Malien host Ashanti GB. They won the first leg away from home. You can trust them to finish the job.

Generally, look at the CAF Champions League and Confederations Cup qualifiers. A lot of strong teams are at home and they come at good odds.

May the gods of betting favour you this weekend. As we say, bet responsibly and hold the teams and players responsible if it goes south. If you win, send your tithes to us, make we sef do Christmas.

Bankers

Norwich are at home against Coventry in the English Championship. The Canaries are in good form and are top of the table. They come at around 1.6 for a win. Though they will be without Emiliano Buendia, who is out suspended, they still have enough to get a win.

Bayern did Amaka last week, expect hem to atone this week. They come at around 1.3 to win away at Stuttgart. Trust them to win. You could also include Robert Lewandowski on your goals scorer ticket.

Borussia Monchengladbach are at home against struggling Schalke 04. They are valued at around 1.3. Gladbach are in good form, off the back of another impressive win in the Champions League. Trust them for a win.

Atalanta are back to winning ways. They should beat Verona at home. It comes at around 1.3.

Juventus away to Benevento is also around 1.3 for a Juve win. This are the sort of matches were Cristiano Ronaldo shows. A Juventus win should come and also Ronaldo to score.

Ronaldo should have a filled day

Lyon to win at home against Reims is around 1.4. Lyon should do enough to win against a Reims side that have struggled.

In South Africa, defending champions Mamelodi Sundowns host Stellenbosch FC. Sundowns are valued at 1.4 for a win. Too good to ignore.

The likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona should also win their home matches against Alaves and Osasuna respectively.

Banana Peels

Brighton and Hove Albion host Liverpool at the Amex. Be careful. Not just because Liverpool lost in midweek against Atalanta, but because Brighton know how to be difficult in this sort of matches. They could be very organised and deny Liverpool the spaces.

Real Sociedad host Villareal at the Anoeta. Sociedad are top of the table and have been impressive. However Villareal have not been bad either. Sociedad are without David Silva, who is out injured. If you must, play an Under 3.5. Both teams will likely cancel each other out and struggle for goals.

Sassuolo have had a good start to the season, they host Inter Milan this weekend. Antonio Conte is under some pressure at Inter Milan and Sassuolo have proven to be difficult opponents in the past.

AC Milan host Fiorentina at the San Siro. AC Milan are top of the table, Fiorentina have struggled. AC Milan to win comes at around 1.7, avoid it. Fiorentina have a knack of showing up in big matches are Milan are without talisman Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Boald Calls

If you get mind, back Atletico Madrid to win away at Valencia. Atletico Madrid are unbeaten and in good form, Valencia defeated the other Madrid side Real Madrid some weeks back. Regardless, they will find Atletico Madrid a more difficult proposition.

Chelsea vs Tottenham is the big match of the weekend, both teams are in good form. If you are Boald go for a Chelsea win. Lampard has a good record against Jose Mourinho and Chelsea have the players to expose Tottenham’s defence. It comes at around 2.0.

Lampard versus Mourinho once again.

That’s all on these edition. If you win, don’t forget to send your tithe here. If you don’t win, hold the players responsible. Bet responsibly.
