But on the other side, it can easily make you go broke if you don't control your betting instincts and bet wisely. There are strategic betting techniques you can use to make betting easier to win than to just lose.
Here are our teams for today that will sure put some money in your pocket.
1. Seviila V Elche
Sevilla’s 1-0 home win in the Sevillian derby last weekend ended their run of two consecutive La Liga (LL) losses and consolidated their UEFA Champions League placing. That result did continue a recent trend though, as all but one of Sevilla’s last eight LL fixtures have now witnessed only one side score (W6, L2), emphasising the importance of netting first.
The ‘Sevillistas’ have lost just one of their previous eight home league matches (D1, L1), and also claimed victory in the two most recent LL H2Hs here, so morale should be high. They’ve also registered a league-best 2.8 points on average when scoring first at home this campaign (W9, D1), so will be especially keen for a good start.
Visiting Elche may have claimed just two victories from their previous 21 top-flight outings (D8, L11), but they still sit above the relegation zone with this game in hand. Encouragingly though, 25% of their league points have come in their last five matches (W2, L3), all five of which saw the LL strugglers go into the break unbeaten (HT: W1, D4).
With only two wins from 13 LL away outings (D3, L8), and an average of just 0.85 goals scored per road trip, ‘Los Franjiverdes’ will start as clear outsiders here. Some of the blame for those poor away performances can be pinned on Elche’s slow starts, as they have failed to score before HT in 69.23% of their LL road trips this campaign. A win for the Host is guaranteed.
2.Chelsea V Atlético Madrid
Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has won/drawn all 12 of his prior games as the Blues’ boss, with his charges conceding just 2.00 shots on target per game. However, Chelsea have not recorded a shutout in any of their last six UEFA Champions League (UCL) Round-of-16 home legs against a club from one of Europe’s five biggest leagues (W1, D2, L3).
The first goal matters greatly, but a late twist can never be ruled out, with five (55.56%) of Chelsea’s last nine UCL games against seeing over 1.5 second-half goals. In addition, a 62.5% majority (five) of their last eight UCL clashes to produce over 0.5 goals have seen at least 50% of the match goals arrive beyond HT.
Atlético Madrid’s average of 3.50 shots on target per game (90 mins only) across their last four trips to England in major competitions will likely take a significant cut here. The Rojiblancos’ 1-0 defeat in the first leg saw them fail to register a single shot on target against Chelsea, and it was the first time they had failed to do so in any UCL game since March 2019. Chelsea will surely pick up qualification today.
3.Nottingham Forest V Norwich City
Nottingham Forest are nearly safe despite four matches without a win. Hardly fun to watch, six of Forest’s last eight matches produced under 1.5 match goals. Indeed, a league-high 28 of their 36 Championship games this term failed to produce three goals or more, with their average of 1.78 match goals per league game a joint-league low ahead of the round.
Winning just one of their last six home games (D3, L2), five of those saw the same HT/FT result, contributing to a league-high 16 home games this season to see the HT result replicated come FT. Amid a lacklustre total of six home games wherein they’ve struck first (W5, D1), Forest might well need to net first here as each of manager Chris Hughton’s four matches (W1, L3) versus his former employers saw the team who scored first win the day.
On an eight-game win run and topping the league, Norwich City are hot favourites to win the Championship and make a quick return to the Premier League. Expected here to improve on their stunning league record this season as match favourites (W23, D6, L2), the ‘Canaries’ have only once failed to win (drew) after securing a HT Championship lead this season.
Norwich have the away form to score first as they have done in three of their last four awaydays, and have scored two or more goals in each such away trip. Including last time away however, the league leaders have conceded a goal in two of these four matches which also saw match goals in both halves. Norwich will look for a point from this game
4.Bayern Munich V Lazio
A 4-1 victory in the first leg kicked off a four-game winning run for Bayern Munich that saw every game feature both teams score and over 3.5 goals. The current UEFA Champions League (UCL) title-holders now look destined to reach their ninth UCL quarter final across the last ten seasons, and record a 17th UCL win from their last 18 tournament outings (D1).
A strong European home record vs Serie A opposition (W10, D5, L5) has Bayern starting this clash as comfortable favourites, and that’s despite the 30-time German champions failing to keep a clean sheet in seven straight competitive matches at the Allianz Arena (W6, D1). However a rock-solid defence isn’t needed when you’re averaging 3.67 goals per home game, as Bayern have done across all competitions this season.
Lazio therefore look unlikely to keep a clean sheet too, especially as they last recorded one in the UCL back in 2003/04! Indeed they’ve conceded 2+ goals in four straight competitive games (W1, L3) after conceding in both halves each time. However they have made themselves difficult to beat in Europe this season, and whilst they’ve recorded eight draws across all competitions this term, half of those came in UCL action!
Only an emphatic win would see Lazio progress, but they’ve lost four of their last five competitive away games (W1). Every defeat saw the Italians concede before HT - something they’ve also done in all three UCL away outings this campaign (D3) - so a first-half clean sheet for the visitors looks somewhat unlikely.
5. Sparta Praha V Baník Ostrava
In the Czech Republic Cup today, Sparta Praha will take on Baník Ostrava for the Quarter Final Clash. Sparta Praha won 19 times in their past 34 meetings with Baník Ostrava.
