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.

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.
