The big kick-off arrives next week but we're gradually seeing leagues around Europe return to action after a long football-less summer.

Top flights in Austria, Switzerland and Belgium spring into life this weekend which gives us punters the chance to look beyond Scandanavia and the topsy-turvy Scottish League Cup, which has been a minefield for punters.

It's the last matchday of the group stages this weekend and there's still plenty to play for. Falkirk looks like they could finally get their act together under John McGlynn this season. A win at home today over Clyde would guarantee a top spot and a place in the next round and odds of 5/7 at SBK looks about right. A home win combined with over 1.5 Falkirk goals pays 20/21 on a Bet365 BetBuilder.

St Mirren have had a really disappointing start to the season. Qualification from the group stage is already beyond them after defeats to Arbroath and Airdrieonians and Stephen Robinson will be under increased pressure if they don't win today at home to FC Edinburgh. The League One side still have a chance to qualify themselves but you have to fancy the top flight side to finish the group stages on a positive note.

The Buddies are just 2/5 to win but 5/6 on the half-time/full-time market looks more appealing. Double a St Mirren win with a Falkirk win pays 11/10.

Hamilton and Queen's Park will battle it out for a second place in Group H. The Spiders will be aiming to make their mark in the Championship this season and would make a statement if they could sneak a place in the last 16 of the League Cup. Both they and their hosts sit on six points having won their matches against Stranraer and Forfar but lost to Dundee so this one could go either way. That means Queen's Park could be a wee bit of value at 2/1.

We should also try to find a way to get on board with Irish League leaders Shamrock Rovers. They endured a tough trip to Hungary in midweek where they lost 3-0 to Ludogorets, a result that looks likely to have put the tie beyond them already, but they re-establish a nine-point lead at the summit with a win over Drogheda.

Again they're very short at just 1/6 so a creative BetBuilder is required; Rovers win, Rovers to score 1+ in the first half, Rovers over 1.5 match goals & Drogheda under 1.5 Goals pays 4/5.

In Norway, Bodo/Glimt should score a few against Jerv but it's tough to find some value. Even backing Glimt to score 3+ pays just 1/2, so backing them to win both halves at 1/1 could be the best option but recent form has been concerning, especially off the back of a midweek defeat to Linfield.

Also in Eliteserien, David Weatherston fancies Rosenborg to triumph at home to Tromso on this week's Gambla Podcast. They can still be backed at 20/21 with SBK and that looks solid based on their good home form which sees them remain unbeaten (W4 D2).

You can listen to all of David and Greg's tips in Norway this week in the Podcast below

As always, let us know your betting tips and predictions for today in the comments section below and good luck with all your bets!

  1. elvis parsley 3 weeks ago

    Rochester New York FC v FC Cincinnati II
    USA MLS Next Pro

    Cincinnati to score EVENS (HILLS).
    They have BTTS at 10-11 💉💉💉

    Top v bottom and Cincinnati have conceded 2+ in all 8 away games, the last 7 seeing 4+ match goals.
    Rochester have won 8 of their 9 home games, scoring 2+ in 7 of the 9.

    2 head to head in the last 2 months in Cincinnati seen
    Cincinnati 1 Rochester 0
    Cincinnati 1 Rochester 2.

    Cut to the chase Rochester should score 2+ and win and hopefully concede in the process.
    0-1 half time ✔️🇺🇸

  2. florescum 3 weeks ago

    Nurenberg – Furth over 2,5 match goals odds 1.70
    Malmo – Sirius over 8,5 corners
    total odds 2.20

  3. AFC N19 3 weeks ago

    *NAP*- Skybet

    Iwate Grulla Morioka v Machida Zelvia Japan J league 2

    Grulla Morioka +5 corners 5/4- skybet
    10+ match corners 10/11

    Morioka average 5.6 corners a game and see there matches average around 11 corners a game. Away side Zelvia also average 5 corners a game when travelling so see decent value at 5/4 and 10/11 for this

    Good luck all

  10. old al 3 weeks ago

    Do any of the Scottish lads (or anybody really) have any views on the outright wins in the Scottish leagues? Mr F was always helpful with his picks, I’d like to go with Bonny Rigg after Kelty Hearts success last season but really don’t know enough about them.

    • TheMaster 3 weeks ago

      Jumped on Kelty at 12/1 and this is now 7/1. Just a wrong price given their resources. Bonnyrigg aren’t if they same potential as Cove and Kelty, but I don’t think they will be miles off it. I’ve plumped for Dumbarton, kelty, inverness.

    • boabee8867 3 weeks ago

      Hi old al, ive a strong notion on Dunfermline to lift the pot in League 1 at 11/4

      They have a Manager who kept Dundee in the Premiership for a while, will have the biggest support in league ( with Falkirk) and i think the vast majority of the squad may be full time

      They also have got off to a good start in the League Cup , interestingly they are 4/7 today to beat a struggling Alloa squad in the Cup today at home…Next week they play same opening fixture in the league and they are 5/6…ive had an early nibble just in case prices fall.. lol….

    • bigwigg 3 weeks ago

      Fancy bonyrigg myself and will be on them e/w as can’t see them out with the top 3. Dumbarton should challenge but haven’t been that impressed by them so far although hoping they go back up.

    • Deb2000 3 weeks ago

      Bigwigg Bonyrigg EW ? They are 7/2 fav for the league.

    • bigwigg 3 weeks ago

      My bad deb 😳 didn’t realise they’d dropped to that, were higher when first listed to where the e/w guaranteed your money back, now not so much 😅

  11. TheMaster 3 weeks ago

    Anyone got any idea which Leicester players are going where today as they have two friendly games, and there must be a bit of value in one of their opponents…

    • adriang 3 weeks ago

      I tried to send you a link for Leicester friendlies but it has gone into moderation

      Go to the official Leicester City website then scroll down on the RHS there is a link for the squads

    • TheMaster 3 weeks ago

      Top man, thoughts?

    • TheMaster 3 weeks ago

      Bit of a mix n match, but Preston will fancy themselves to get a goal I think. Over 2.5 bbts in second game looks decent to me

  12. florescum 3 weeks ago

    Bet buider and accumulator for today
    Voluntari under 3,5 team goals, under 7,5 team corners and over 1,5 yellow cards odd 1.60
    St Gallen – Winterthur 1x and over 1,5 match goals odd 1.35
    Heindenheim – Eintracht Braunchweig btts or over 2,5 match goals odd 1.50
    total odds 2.83
    I ve bet 15 euro on this accumulator

    • florescum 3 weeks ago

      this is win

  13. florescum 3 weeks ago

    Today i expect a surprize at this match from Bundesliga 2 match
    Heindenheim – Eintracht Braunchweig AWAY WIN for odd 3.7
    A good bet is 2 or over 2,5 match goals
    i have this king of bet on my agency

  14. Cleaves 3 weeks ago

    Swiss Super League today

    Zurich v Luzern 5pm

    BTTS & o2.5 goals 8/11

    Fancy this to be an open game as it’s Luzerns first of the season after last weeks was postponed. Think they will fancy their chances of picking something up. Zurich have conceded 7 in 2 competitive games so far and this game comes in between a champions league qualifier for them

    St Gallen v Winterthur 7:30pm

    BTTS & each team 3+ corners evens

    Watched the majority of both of these teams opening games. St Gallen should dominate this game but Winterthur looked excellent on the counter last week and picked up 11 corners against Basel despite leading for the majority of the game. Again I fancy this to be an open game and wouldn’t put anyone off backing goals but like this bet myself

    Hail Mary for the whole weekend as well

    Zurich btts
    St Gallen win
    Basel win
    Young boys win
    Lugano win

    25/1 (+ 12% bonus on b365)

    Good luck all

  16. cockerspaniel 3 weeks ago

    Celtic v Norwich

    5 + 1st half corners 1/1 Skybet
    Over 10 corners in the match 6/4 Bet365
    Over 11 corners in the match 12/5 Bet365

    • TheMaster 3 weeks ago

      I’m all over Celtic to get six or more corners at 6/5.

    Double evens

    Good luck

  19. TheMaster 3 weeks ago

    Celtic and Rangers are gonna give it their all in today’s friendly matches with Norwich and Spurs.
    Given Celtic got 9 corners in the first half versus Blackburn last week, I couldn’t get on Skybet’s over 5 at 6/5 quick enough. Rangers to get over 3 is 4/6. Again, couldn’t get on quick enough.
    Double pays about 3/1 – and again, I can’t get on quick enough. Be shocked if these don’t all land.

  20. David23 3 weeks ago

    A few bets i’m on for the early hours
    Bayern Munich v Man City
    Over 3.5 goals at 5/6
    Over 4.5 goals at 2/1
    It’s only a friendly but City will want to get an edge over Bayern and lay a marker for the Champions league which will be City’s priority this coming season there should be goals,Haaland will start for City.

    Arsenal v Chelsea
    Over 2.5 goals at 7/10
    Over 3.5 goals at 13/8
    Arsenal to win at 19/10
    Arsenal have done some good business thus far bringing in Jesus and Zichenko,a game between these two is never dull,Expect Arsenal to lay down a marker even though it’s only a friendly.Arsenal weren’t great for goals last season but i believe they have rectified what they needed and they should be more free scoring.
    Best of luck

  32. HullShaker 3 weeks ago

    Looking towards Brasil’s Serie B for what could be a decent scoreline for the rampant hosts…the prices for team goals look way too good…we’ll see but it’s a rare 5 star pick:


    (8/11, bet365) NAP ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    (9/4, bet365) NB ⭐️⭐️⭐️

    (11/2, bet365) NAP ⭐️

    Best of luck with all bets!

    Iwate Grulla Morioka v Machida Zelvia Japan J league 2

    10+ match corners 10/11

    Morioka average 5.6 corners a game and see there matches average around 11 corners a game. Away side Zelvia also average 5 corners a game when travelling so see decent value at 5/4 and 10/11 for this

    Good luck all

    Tonight’s boxing tip….

    Haven’t posted on here for a while because my tips have been appalling recently.

    The bizarre thing is that I bet on Chisora to beat Pulev and also for Bivol to beat Canelo…… And, sod’s law, they both came in – even though I didn’t post them on here! If anyones dubious, I suppose I could take screenshots of the bets as proof 😊

    As for tonight, I’m on Isaac Dogboe to beat Joet Gonzalez (around 2/1). The fight is around 4am UK time.

    If anyone’s after better odds, Dogboe’s around 4/1 to win on points.

    Pob Lwc🤞
