TUESDAY is a brute of a card with English cup games dominating the UK matches, throw in a full National League card along with cup games on the continent and 8 matches from Serie B and you have a right mixed bag.
I'm down in Portsmouth this week for work and would have loved to have gone to the South Coast derby between Pompey and Southampton. Little love lost between these two and its the first meeting between the sides in over 7 years but tickets are like gold dust so it will be a night sat watching the goals fly in.
It's a tricky card but there are some total goals bets I like the look of.
Sky Bet Featured Football Bets
Sky bet are offering specials on these 6 selected matches and when you look at the sides involved – it's not unreasonable to think we could see plenty of goals.
- Arsenal vs Nottm Forest
- Colchester vs Tottenham
- Luton vs Leicester
- Preston vs Man City
- Brescia vs Juventus
- Barcelona vs Villerreal
Yes, the 4 English games are League Cup ties and all the sides involved will make big changes but there should still be enough quality on show to think these won't be low-scoring affairs.
Juventus travel to Brescia and we all know how strong the Italian giants are – to round things off Barca are at home and having seen both home matches so far finish 5-2, I think the total bet line is worth taking on.
From the 6 matches I can't see any that make a case to go under 2.5 goals and we should get at least couple that go 4+.
- 21+ goals to be scored
- 10/11 (Skybet) (NAP)
- All matches over 1.5 goals
- 6/5 (Skybet)
Serie B Goals Specials – 8 Matches 8pm
The second tier in Italy is well underway as we approach matchday 5 and having looked through tonight's matches I'm more than happy to take on the total goals line.
Serie B isn't known for its goals but with 8 matches being played, including the league's better sides being at home, 20+ goal is a fair target to hit and is worth backing.
With 8 games we should see at least 2 of them reach 4+. Matches at Ascoli and Pordenone look promising.
- 20+ goals to be scored
- 5/6 (Skybet)
First-half goals and 1.5 match goals also worth doing across tonight's specials.
