Big Matches in Europe This Weekend
Arguably the biggest match this weekend in Europe is in the Bundesliga where Champions Bayern Munich are away to joint leaders Bayer Leverkusen. Crazy to say it so early in the season, but if Bayern win it is starting to look dauntingly hard again for anyone to catch them in the Bundesliga. Also in the Bundesliga, there is money to be made in surprise team Freiburg at home to RB Leipzig.
In Serie A lots of the top clubs are playing each other, such as Lazio (6th) at home to Inter (3th) with Juventus (7th) entertaining a fairly impressive Roma (4th). We think Juve will have too much for Jose Mourinho’s men but the odds are not good enough. Inter are on great form and might be worth backing for an away win, but the odds are not great.
Premier League focus will be on the new billionaires of world football, (yes that really is Newcastle), as the Geordies have to beat Tottenham to move away from the relegation zone before they can dream of future Champions League campaigns.
The new London derby between Brentford and Chelsea should also be a really good contest, though the only safe bets here are likely to be in the over-goals market given the potency of both strike forces.
In La Liga, there is still money to be made betting against Barcelona as the bookies seem to be pricing Barca on reputation not on the diminished team that has lost its last two. We see no value in betting on Barca at home to an often strong Valencia at 5/9. The draw no bet on Valencia, by contrast, at 17/4 looks cracking value, or the straight draw at 7/2.

Bayer Leverkusen v Bayern Munich: Gold Prediction and Tip
So these two both sit atop the Bundesliga, but there is no doubt which club the bookies think owns the freehold, and which one is enjoying a brief AirBnB stay there. Leverkusen have five victories in five matches, yet can be bet at odds of 5.00 to win at home. You can even bet the draw at around 4.3. Bayern are a mean 1.58.
Leverkusen score (29 goals in their last 10). But their last defeat was 4-3 at home to Dortmund, so Bayern will think they can open Leverkusen up.
We are tempted to place a small bet on Leverkusen for the draw no bet at 4.00 as despite Bayern’s brilliance, there has to be value there.
BetGold Bundesliga Betting Tip: modest wager on a draw at Bundesliga odds of 4.3 or draw no bet at 4.00
BetGold Bundesliga Betting Tip: Five out of six Bundesliga games for both have resulted in more than 3.5 goals. Odds of 1.78 on over 3.5 goals is a decent bet.
SC Freiburg v RB Leipzig Predictions and Tip
Freiburg are flying, up to 4th in the Bundesliga. RB Leipzig will be disappointed by their mediocre league position. But the bookmakers don’t seem to have noticed!
Neo.bet is offering Freiburg and the draw both at 3.8. An away win is priced at just 1.82.
Leipzig can win big at home games but on their travels have been average at best.
BetGold Bundesliga Tip: Freiburg draw no bet at Bundesliga odds through Neo.bet of 2.86 is very tempting
Manchester City v Burnley Tip
BetGold tip: Ignore the main bets here as there is no bargains to be had. Back City to win the second half with a 1-0 handicap through Neo.bet Premier League odds of 2.2. Manchester City were level after 45 minutes in their previous 4 outings. They destroy teams, but later on.
Watford v Liverpool
Gold is tempted by the over 2.5 goals market. Liverpool have goals all over the pitch and in Mo Salah they have (in our opinion) the best striker in the Premier League.
BetGold Premier League tip: Over 2.5 goals at 1.5 with Neo.bet seems excellent value as Liverpool are the Premiership’s biggest scorers and they have marvellous Mo, who is averaging a goal a game! (their last four matches have, as a result, had more than 2.5 goals). Salah for anytime goal scorer at Premier League odds of 1.75 interests us too.
BetGold Premier League Prediction: Away
Southampton v Leeds
Yes, I know, you are thinking: this dull match can’t be a game of the weekend. And as entertainment, you would be right – it might well turn out to be rubbish. But there could be betting value here. Both these teams draw a lot and as is so often the case, the draw is underpriced.
BetGold Premier League Prediction: Draw
BetGold tip: The draw is at a high 3.4 with Neo.bet. Under 2.5 goals at 2.16 is also nice.
