TURKEY superstars Yilmaz and Bulut have poured in goals in club football for Galatasaray but at international level it just hasn't clicked.

The Turks are struggling in their qualification group and they'll need to convert more chances to have any chance of going to Brazil.

Latvia hasn't impressed anyone in quite some time. Recently they lost 3-1 in Qatar and they have only won once in the last eight matches. That was a game against Lichtenstein.

In four of their last six away games Latvia have lost by two goals or more so obviously they struggle defensively.

Turkey have failed to win in their two last home friendlies (Denmark and Czech Republic) but they've made a wise choice fixing up a meeting with Latvia in Germany.

It must be said though that going forward Latvia has some decent options in players who play for pretty solid clubs such as CSKA Moscow and HSV. I wouldn't be surprised if the Latvians got a goal themselves.

It's a great opportunity for players such as Bulut, Yilmaz, Turan and perhaps Rennes star Erding to shine. They couldn't really ask for a weaker defense so all eyes are on them to go for the jugular.

    Given that Latvia could snatch an away goal I’d go the safer route on over 2.5 goals in the game as you would need that anyway for the -1.5 and there is very little between the prices £10 on -1.5 returns £19.75, same on over 2.5 goals at 4/5 returns £18…..just something to consider milesey :)

      BRITAINS GOT TALENT
      ——————————-

      Last night pretty much went to plan. The favourites to win – Richard and Adam – did so, just like the crux of yesterday’s preview alluded to.

      I’m not talking specifically about myself selecting the operatic brothers to win – a 2.5 winner isn’t exactly the tipping success of the year is it? – I’m talking more about how the favourites to win these semi-finals usually do so because of the way they are organised. A great act, put on last, with some mediocre acts preceding it for example.

      And when that last act to appear on the night is amongst the favourites to win the whole competition AND is a vocal act performing opera/theatre, then you have a rock solid wager on your hands.

      Not surprisingly, another vocal act also made it to the final a week on Saturday though it wasn’t the one I originally expected it to be. Band of Voices were possibly disadvantaged by having to perform early but in all honesty I didn’t rate their performance and I have no qualms about the better performer on the night – Arisxandra Libantino – going through.

      Richard and Adam are 5.6 second favourites to win the competition behind strong 2.3 favourites Attraction who we’ll see later in the week. Arisxandra Libantino is available to back at 24.0.

      Tonight’s second semi-final is a real puzzle to solve and could be one of those rare occasions where either the favourite doesn’t win, or if the favourite does win then it won’t be a vocal or dance act.

      That’s because young comedian Jack Carroll is the early favourite on the exchange in the Semi Final 2 Winner market, but I’m not totally convinced that he should be favourite.

      In fact, I am convinced that second favourite Alice Fredenham could be an outstanding bet tonight.

      Carroll (1.6 to win) was good but certainly not jaw-dropping during his audition and the fact is comedians have a terrible record in this competition. You have to be naturally funny, free-flowing, and really have an outstanding act to do well on Britian’s Got Talent and Carroll has neither in my opinion. His act is scripted and doesn’t flow for my liking and I believe we can get him beat tonight.

      Fredenham on the other hand is exactly the type of act we’ve spoke about for the last few days – a vocal act who received fantastic reviews after her audition and someone who has surely been ear-marked to make the final.

      She was rejected by the BBC’s The Voice, but their loss is set to be BGT’s gain. Simon Cowell described her voice as liquid gold after her audition, and I sense that she is the one, more than Carroll, who producers are desperate makes the final.

      If that’s the case then I believe she will get the late slot tonight, and if she does then she will take the world of beating. She is available to back at 3.5 right now on the exchange, and that looks an outstanding bet to me.

      Watch out for Jack and Cormac, and Gabz Gardiner in the To Qualify market. Again, both are vocal acts who had more of the likeability factor than the X Factor (sorry, wrong show but you know what I mean) at their audition, but both had extremely catchy songs.

      If Carroll has a poor comedy act tonight then one of the teenage singing acts could mount a challenge to progress to the final.

      Recommended Bet

      Back Alice Fredenham @ 3.5 or better

    Surely you only need 2 goals to win a -1.5?

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      Unhinged Canary, yeah 2-0 would be fine so think Sean’s getting mixed up or hasn’t written what he meant to.

  3. Sean Ireland 7 years ago

    what im saying is its a safer option in my opinion at about the same odds as the likely hood of it ending exactly 2-0 are slim, the overs means a 2-1 comes in or any other over 2 goal score,not saying the -1.5 isn’t going to come in but I think ive a better chance at more or less the same odds with what ive stated…..gonna be 2-0 now ive said this so lump on ;)

    LAY OF THE DAY
    ———————-

    Dynamo Dresden and Osnabruck meet for the second leg of their German promotion/relegation Play-off this evening and we could be in for plenty of goals.

    The first match between this pair finished 1-0 to Osnabruck last Friday but Dynamo Dresden have been on a good run at home of late and are still right in the tie. They completed the regular Bundesliga Two season with four straight victories at Glücksgas Stadium but it wasn’t quite enough to lift them to safety.

    Peter Pacult’s side scored nine goals in that four game period and prior to a blank at home to Koln, they scored against Hertha BSC and put three past Sandhausen. Clean sheets haven’t been easy to come by though – just two in their last seven – and if they concede this evening, they will be forced to score at least three themselves to survive.

    Osnabruck finished third in the third tier of German football and they set themselves up for promotion with that 1-0 victory in the first leg. Their away form is a concern though as Claus-Dieter Wollitz’s men have fallen to five defeats in their last seven on the road.

    Given their vulnerability away from the Osnatel-Arena I expect them to be bold and try and get the early away goal that would put them firmly in the driving seat. The Lily Whites certainly have a goal in them as they scored twice at Hallescher FC, Wehen Wiesbaden and Unterhaching recently.

    This is almost a winner takes all match up and while I foresee it being relatively open from an early stage, it should certainly get quite ragged during the second half. Given the circumstances, under 2.5 goals is just too short at around the 1.9 mark, and that’s why I have to make it my lay of the day.

    Milesey do you only put up the results if your bet of the day wins? Pretty poor when considering you post so many comments that don’t actually relate to the thread. Noticed it with your late night bet on a team which was” a poor excuse for a football side, with one outcome” then no talk about the result. I’m not complaining I’ve learned not to follow your football tips. It’s a tipping website so you shouldn’t be ashamed if your bet of the day or equilivent get beat. Just post the results rather than dodging it.

    SANTE FE – GARCILASO: BETTING TIPS

    The tie is all over by half time, Sante Fe were superior in all departments to Garcilaso and fully deserved their 3-1 win. The sides have met three times this season already and with 2 wins and 1 draw Sante Fe have showed their domination over the Peruvians. This game in Bogota will not be treated lightly though and Sante Fe know they have to play a professional game. The odds are very short on the home side as you would expect so we take Sante Fe -1 at 1.85 (Bet365)

    Finland, FC Honka have won 3/4 home games this season and 7/9 at home to bottom-half sides like Lahti. Tonight’s visitors have lost 7/9 on the road to top-half teams and failed to score in 3/5 away from home this term.

    Recommended Bet: Back Honka @ 2.0 to beat Lahti

    —————————————————————————–

    ENGLAND V REPUBLIC OF IRELAND

    England take on old rivals Republic of Ireland at Wembley for the 1st time since 1991. Indeed the sides have only met once since that date and that was the ill fated match in Dublin which was almost abandoned.

    England go into the friendly in mixed form and also with a serious chance of missing out on another World Cup. In a group with Ukraine, Poland and Montenegro the English are making hard work of it. England sit in 2nd place in the group 2 points behind suprise leaders Montenegro but only 4 points ahead of Poland and Ukraine who both have a game in hand. Since the defeat to Italy on penalties in Euro 2012 England have won 4, drawn 3 and lost once. This run is including a friendly win over Brazil. They have scored 25 goals and conceded 8 but with 18 coming against whipping boys Moldova and San Marino results have not been great for England at all. As expected after the season has finished, England suffer a handful of withdrawals from the squad. Steven Gerrard, Andy Carrol, Jack Wilshire and Tom Cleverly all leave the side. The only suprise in the side is Manchester City’s Jack Rodwell, apart from him its the same old faces.

    Republic of Ireland are in battling away as usual, but seem to lack the quality and team spirit of the last few years. They are in a really tough group indeed, after being paired with all conquering Germany all the rest of group C were looking at the runners up spot at best. Ireland sit in joint 2nd position after 5 games. Since their awful showing in Euro 2012 Ireland have had a mixed bag of results. While 4 wins, 3 draws and 3 defeats seems like a decent return they have only managed to beat one side of note in Poland. Wins over Oman, Faroe Islands and Kazakhstan will impress few people. With 15 goals scored and 12 conceded in that straight forward run of games it shows a weakness in the Ireland side. Germany walloped them 6-1 in Dublin and Serbia outplayed them for long parts of their 0-0 draw. The limited nature of the Irish squad is highlighted by the replacements brought into this game after the withdrawals of Paul Green, Kevin Doyle and Anthony Pilkington. Stephen Quinn makes his 1st squad for 6 years and Robbie Keane is given leave from the MLS to make the game.

    ENGLAND – REPUBLIC OF IRELAND: BETTING TIPS

    This should be a straight forward win for England in a match against one of their oldest enemies. The disparity in the squad strengths is there for all to see with Ireland struggling to name players from England league 1 these days. Every English player is head to head better than their opposing number and no Ireland player would get in the English 1st eleven. Ireland used to compensate for this with an incredible will to win and an unsurpassed team spirit but this has long since evaporated. The price on England is too short for our selection so we take England -1 at 1.75. England are shortening up all the time as the money is all for the home side so suggest an early bet before all value has gone.
