REGULAR visitors to the site will have noticed my recent Masterclasses have focused on Spread Betting and in particular how to spread bet on football. It’s an area that’s interested me for a while but I must confess to not knowing too much about it.
Now I’ve spent some time researching it, getting my head around it and hopefully explaining it to you in simple terms I can see there are some occasions where spread betting provides a better option than regular fixed odds.
If you’ve not already read the Masterclass posts you can read them here;

As well as providing his weekly Goals Tips for members, Selectabet will be looking at spread betting opportunities each and every week here on the site and we’re keen to know if any you already spread bet on football or any other sports so let us know in the comments section below. Here’s Selectabet’s thoughts ahead of tonight’s matches.
AFTER Barcelona put seven past Celtic last night it’s the other “El Clasico” side’s turn to put a team in green and white hoops to the sword when Real Madrid host Sporting at the Bernabeu.
Last year’s Champions League winners kick off their defence of the trophy against the team that finished second in the Portuguese Premeira Liga last term and it could be a similar story to Barca’s victory over Celtic last night.
Madrid cantered through the group stages last season, knocking in 19 goals in 6 matches, 12 of which came at home. In fact a summary of victories in the last five group stages paints a bleak visitor for any visitor to the Bernabeu:
- 2015-16: 1-0, 4-0, 8-0
- 2014-15: 5-1, 1-0, 4-0
- 2013-14: 4-0, 4-1, 2-1
- 2012-13: 4-1, 2-2, 3-2
- 2011-12: 3-0, 6-2, 4-0
In summary, they’ve dropped just 2 points (a 2-2 draw with Dortmund) and scored 4 or more in 53% of their home matches in the last five years at this stage.
Sporting’s last appearance in the competition was in 2014-15 when they finished third in in the group table, largely down to two home wins over Schalke and Maribor, but away from home they shipped eight in their three matches.
Domestically Sporting have started well, but then, so too have Madrid who have netted 10 times in their opening three La Liga fixtures.
On the spread betting front the spread for the match is set at 2.05 – 2.25, whilst goals are at 3.65-3.85. Madrid should win it comfortable and by more than the three required to be in profit but the tip for tonight is to go for goals and to ‘buy’ goals at 3.85.
