LYON play host to Toulouse in France's Ligue One today and with no win in five, the home side have to be opposed at odds-on.

Lyon have dropped out of the title race in recent weeks after a dire run of form that has seen them pick up just two points from a possible 15.

They are now in danger of missing out on Champions League qualification although if they win their game in hand they will move ahead of St Etienne into third.

Winning hasn't been coming easy to Remi Garde's men of late though as their last one was back in February and they've won just two of their last nine in the league.

The Kids come into this clash on the back of three straight defeats, all of which came against teams in the bottom half of the division.

Their performances on home soil don't inspire too much confidence either as they have won just two of seven at Stade de Gerland and they will have to do without the services of Steed Malbranque, Milan Bisevac and Dejan Lovren today.

Toulouse have climbed to 11th thanks to a good run of results although that was ended last time out as they lost a seven-goal thriller to Nice.

Prior to that they were six undefeated and while four of those were draws, that would be more than good enough for us.

TFC have actually won their last two away from Stadium Municipal – at Brest and Ajaccio – and they had avoided defeat in three of their previous four before that, the only blemish being a 2-0 loss at Rennes. Toulouse will also take heart from the fact they've comprehensively beaten Lyon in their last two meetings, both by a 3-0 scoreline.

Lyon are in dreadful form and while Toulouse are having a disappointing campaign they have largely been avoiding defeat lately. That's why, with Lyon trading around the 1.94 mark, I have to make them my lay of the day.

    Just wanna say Milesey i think your tips have been a great addition to this site. Pauls tips are great but u just seem to come at things from a different angle – especially with the lay markets. Between u and Paul the tips on this site are first class. Some of your posts are a bit long winded but i love reading them all the same. This site is superb and the people that come on and slag it off need to get a grip. Any other site would be charging for these tips and info! I dont follow u or pauls tips religously but use them as a guide and sometimes to back up my own gut feelings. Please keep it up :)

    What do you mean by lay of the day?

    I’m new to betting need some tips.

      Homicide, Milesey will explain better but if you lay Lyon for example you’re betting against them winning. The opposite would be to back Lyon.

      Lay Betting

      Lay betting is quite simply betting on an outcome you think will not happen.

      In football this is a new and increasingly profitable area for punters to take advantage of. Many tipsters now provide football betting tips advising to back against (laying) a team from winning, or in some instances backing against or ‚Äėlaying‚Äô the draw as they believe either side will win instead of the match finishing all square.

      Lay betting is also particularly popular in horse racing as it is often much easier to lay or bet against a horse than selecting the winning runner and rider.

      Lay Betting Explained

      Lay betting is common on betting exchanges and works when two punters have opposing views. When odds are agreed this then becomes a matched bet. The odds therefore that punters are willing to bet on are usually much higher than traditional bookmakers and betting exchanges notoriously have better odds

    Forgot to say this site also has some very knowledgable punters who make the site even better. Danny, Guido, muzza, craig alves, to name just a few.

      Looks like your LYON to win is coming in 3-1 25 minutes to go.

    Knottsy – yer a good source of info yourself. Any good boxing coming up?

  7. Knottsy 11 years ago

    Scotlands own Ricky Burns fights Vazquez on Saturday Guido. Looks a tight one – 2 defending world champs! Burns been in with a bit better class of fighter but been a bit of messing about in lead up to fight which wont suit Burns as he is known to be meticulous in his preparations. 4/9 for Burns a wee bit short for me. Maybe go Burns by points and maybe fight decided by split decision but cant find odds for that yet!!

    • Guido 11 years ago

      I’ll look out for your fight tips at the w/e Knottsy. Did u watch that shambles in Liverpool last week?..both of the main bouts ending in draws??!!FFS…wharra con. And the main bout how can one judge score it so differently frim the other and one a tie?? rippin folk off. TBH I dunno how any fight can be a draw ya know?…if they thro say 700 punches and say maybe 250 land…then the odds of both hitting each other the identical amount of times is remote so some one must land a few more punches so if its ewual on round maybe the fella that lands more should be declared the winner?? whacha think Knottsy?

  8. Guido 11 years ago

    Ajax!! ;-) another good one Milesey!! :-) kicking masel i didnt get them on at the start…4/5in running is fine tho. Doubled with MC, havna been watching? MC on top? Going oot fora meal..might just cash in??

  9. Knottsy 11 years ago

    I hear what yer sayin Guido – boxing aint the most honest sport.
    Bellew never showed up right enough and he should have been good enough so the judges shouldnt have been involved. Think he was looking too far ahead instead of dealing with what was in front of him!

    7.45 K/O ITALY : SERIE A

    Milan v Napoli

    The big game of the weekend is unquestionably at San Siro, where Milan take on Napoli. The big news is that Mario Balotelli is out for Milan, and so the Rossoneri will have to rely on a strikeforce of Stephan El Sharaawy and Giampaolo Pazzini. This makes a big difference, as Balotelli makes Milan a different side, and I think that Napoli will be confident of at least getting a draw, which in the context of the table, wouldn’t be a bad result.

    Milan are 2.1 favourites to win, which is too short, and Napoli are 3.9. The key to a Napoli win is whether they can supply Edinson Cavani: that job will fall to Marek Hamsyk, Goran Pandev and the new goal scoring sensation (and I never thought that I’d be saying this) Blerim Dzemaili, who has now got 4 in his last 2 games. Milan had looked rock solid defensively until they conceded those two penalties against Fiorentina last week, but there is a chance that the season is starting to take its toll, and with Balotelli out, and Napoli looking typically businesslike at home against Genoa last weekend, I’m tempted to chance Napoli at a decent price to put the argument about second place to bed.

    I have a nagging feeling that Napoli may settle for a draw if the game is level with half an hour to go, though, and so rather than try and be too clever, I’ll play this a little more conservatively. Milan are too short at 2.1, and so let’s lay them and keep the draw onside.

    Lay Milan against Napoli @ 2.1

      Colón de Santa Fe v Vélez Sarsfield Р20:10

      V√©lez manager Ricardo Gareca has given no hints as to the team he’ll play in Santa Fe this weekend but he will be wary of resting too many players against Col√≥n given their recent pick-up in form.

      Bottom and winless after six games, Roberto Sensini’s side have won two on the bounce now and boast the top scorer of the Torneo Final in Emmanuel Gigliotti. Even with their improvement, you’d think V√©lez should be too strong and 2.72 is a big price for the defending champions, but with Col√≥n’s consecutive wins it will be safer to make it a Draw No Bet.

      River Plate v Arsenal de Sarandí Р00:15

      Third against fourth should be a good game at El Monumental where River look back on course after a bit of a wobble in March. Free from continental commitments it should have been easy for Ramón Díaz to play his strongest team every week but a plague of injuries in defence has derailed his plans and now David Trezeguet is out for the rest of the season with a serious injury that needs operating on.

      The good news in this medical crisis is that young players like Eder Balanta, the 20 year-old Colombian defender who made his debut in last week’s cl√°sico with Racing, have done well when they’ve stepped in – and there is some experience in the team to guide them.

      Arsenal stay under the radar but consistently overachieve, and the creativity and verve of Carlos Carbonero and Martin Rolle should be the envy of most Primera Divisi√≥n midfields. It has meant that in fifteen games this season (across all competitions including the Copa Libertadores) Arsenal have only failed to score once, and with River’s defensive personnel issues, we feel as if they’ll do so again.

      Given the attacking talents at their own disposal, River should trouble their opponents too and even though Arsenal boast one of the best defenders in the country in Lisandro Lopez there is enough support for both teams to score that we will hop on board at an odds-against price.

      Recommended Bet

      Back both teams to score @ 2.14
