Goalfests at Wembley, Managerial merry-go-round, and Boxing knockouts; where to put your money this weekend

Welcome to this week’s blog. Now that
the Premier League season is finished, over the coming weeks I will be looking
into other football-related markets and also a few other sports. However there
are still three games on which it may be worth pinning a few £ on over this
next week.

First up on
Saturday is the Champions League final which is between Bayern Munich and
Borussia Dortmund, let’s try to highlight a few tasty bets in that match.

I know
Bayern have a very good defence and don’t concede goals many but I really think
it could be a goalfest at Wembley, and I reckon it could end up 3-2 to either
side! So taking that on board, the following bets must be worth a couple of £.

Over 4.5
Goals @ 4/1

Dortmund to
win 3-2 @ 35/1

Bayern to
win  3-2 @ 22/1

If you fancy
a Goalscorer bet then Robert Lewandowski is 6/1 to open the scoring or to score
anytime is 17/10, however the value bet on him is 11/4 to open the scoring for
his team.

A Bayern
Goalscorer to watch out for is Thomas Muller who is 13/2 to open the scoring or
15/8 to score anytime, he is 4/1 to open the scoring for his team.

If you think
it may be a cagey game then it may be worth backing each team to win in
Extra-time. These odds are

Bayern to
win in Extra Time- 13/2

Dortmund to
win in Extra Time – 14/1

Think it may
go to the dreaded penalty shootout? Then either side to win on spot kicks is

Now onto the
other game at Wembley over the next few days, the Championship playoff final between
Crystal Palace and Watford. Playoff finals usually are high-scoring affairs so
+4.5 goals @ 5/1 looks appealing.

I’m going to
flag three high-scoring results that pay high odds as again both sides should
go for it.

3-3 Draw @

Palace to
win 4-3 @ 150/1

Watford to
win 4-3 @ 125/1

One bet that
interests is Wilfried Zaha to score a hattrick is 80/1. The wide pitch may suit
him on his last game for Palace before he leaves to join Manchester United.

This Weeks Tenner Bet

£10 +4.5
Goals in Palace v Watford playoff final

Now let’s
have a look at the managerial betting markets, as there are so many vacancies
at the moment.

Manchester City Job-

Manuel Pelligrini  – 1/20

Jose Mourinho
– 8/1

Brendan Rodgers/Rafael
Benitez – Both 22/1

Everton Job-

Roberto Martinez
– 3/1

Pereira- 4/1

Neil Lennon
–  6/1

Phil Neville
–  28/1

Real Madrid Job

Carlo Ancelotti  – 1/5

Benitez  – 12/1

Jupp Heynckes  – 16/1

Andre Villas-Boas  – 40/1 
( I was told a few weeks ago AVB would be approached by RM when Jose
left )

Chelski Job

Mourinho – 1/19

else starts from 28-1.

Those of you
who enjoy boxing will be aware of the Carl Froch/Mikkel Kessler fight on
Saturday night. Although I enjoy watching boxing I will admit I’m no expert on
the sport so I asked a guy I follow on Twitter (@macho_Grande1) who knows his boxing

thinks Kessler’s best days are behind him and that Froch will stop him in the
latter rounds. The group round betting for this tip is:

Froch by stoppage
in group round 7-9 @ 8/1

Froch by stoppage
in group round 10-12 @ 9/1

Next Week I’ll
be looking at odds for players who are on Arsenal’s radar…..

Remember to
only bet ££ you can afford to lose. Feel free to contact me on Twitter   @yorkshiregunner and tell me your thoughts
or any decent bets you have found.
