EFL Cup fourth-round draw


West Ham United vs ChelseaManchester United vs Manchester CityArsenal vs ReadingLiverpool vs Tottenham HotspurBristol City vs Hull CityLeeds United vs Norwich CityNewcastle United vs Preston North EndSouthampton vs Sunderland

Games to be played week commencing October 24.

Some tough draws all round with the exception of Arsenal and Pep Guardiola v Jose Mourinho for the 1st time in the EFL Cup 4th round. Are we sure Arsene Wenger didn’t do the draw himself?
I think that Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal, Liverpool, Hull City, Leeds, Newcastle and Southampton will go through to the next round.
West Ham United vs Chelsea
Chelsea vs West Ham in this competition was in 2004/05, Mateja Kezman scoring the only goal at Stamford Bridge. That was in the third round and Chelsea went on to lift the trophy that season.

How to play Fantasy Premier League 2-5-3 formation

Image
Fantasy Premier League Chips can be used to potentially enhance your team’s performance during the season.
Only one chip can be played in a single Gameweek. The chips available are as follows:

All Out Attack – Allows you to play a 2-5-3 formation in the next Gameweek.
Bench Boost – The points scored by your bench players in the next Gameweek are included in your total.
Triple Captain – Your captain points are tripled instead of doubled in the next Gameweek.

All Out Attack
One use for this chip is when you’re short of defenders in a particular Gameweek. Instead of wasting a transfer at the back, go big with 8 attackers. You should take into account your attackers’ scoring potential that week before using the All Out Attack chip. My attackers are: Snodgrass, Capoue, Mahrez, DE Bruyne, Puncheon, Vardy, Negredo and Kane.

The Best Formation
It is hard to crown any one formation as the best formation. As told above, 4 – 4 – 2 is the most traditional formation but two other formations are also…

What is Asian Handicap?

Image
Asian handicap is a form of betting in which teams are handicapped according to their form, so that a stronger team must win by more goals for a punter betting on them to win.

What is Asian Handicap?

Asian Handicap 0 – You win if your chosen team wins the match. If the match is a draw you are refunded your stake.

Asian Handicap 0, +0.5 – You win if your chosen team wins the match. If the match is a draw, your bet is split in half – one half is considered a win, the other half is considered a draw and its stakes are refunded.

Asian Handicap +0.5 – Your bet wins if your chosen team draws or wins the match.

Asian Handicap +0.5, +1 – You win if your chosen team wins or draws the match. If your team loses with a one goal difference, you lose 50% of the amount staked.

AsianHandicap +1 – You win if your chosen team wins or draws the match. If it loses with a one goal difference, you are refunded your stake.

Asian Handicap +1, +1.5 – You win if your chosen team wins or draws the match. If your t…

What is the meaning of double chance in betting?

Image
A double chance bet allows you to cover two of the three possible outcomes in a football match with one bet.
Example: Real Madrid vs Barcelona
Real Madrid and draw: Your bet is a winner if the Real wins or draws the match. If Real Madrid loses, so does the bet.
1X = home team wins or draws the match

Barcelona and draw: Your bet is a winner if Barcelona wins or draws the match. If Barcelona loses, so does the bet.
X2 = the away team wins or draws the match.

12 = Real Madrid or Barcelona to win.
The third option will pay out only if draw is not the end outcome of the football game.

PROS
Two out of three outcomes covered
Same return on win and draw
Great option for backing the underdogs

CONS
Short prices

The Double Chance is popular in football betting(Champions League, Europa League, Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga, Serie A, Ligue 1,etc), because as long as you can assess a match option in which a team is fairly unlikely to lose, then you can cover yourself on the other two options…

What is Draw no Bet or DNB?

Image
Draw no bet is commonly used when betting on football events. Draw No Bet, which as its name implies, removes the option of a draw from a bet – allowing bettors to bet on either a home or away win.

Example: Manchester United play against Arsenal and you decide to place a £50 bet on Arsenal Draw no bet. The game ends 2-2, and while your bet is not a winning one, you get the full £50 stake refunded. Had you simply bet on away win, you would have lost the entire stake.
You will only lost the bet if you lose the game to the opponent(in this example Man United victory); therefore, you are only looking for win or draw to get a profit or get a refund.

The match outcomes represented by a three-way market. This will be Match result, which offers Home win, draw and Away win( 1, X and 2).

Two-way markets for match result are now seeping into the mindset of European punters. This is done by either backing double chance or Draw no Bet (DNB). Both these bet types are simple manipulations of 1×2 o…

Barcelona Champions League schedule 2016

Image
Guardiola’s City were paired with Barcelona – along with Borussia Moenchengladbach and Brendan Rodgers’ Celtic – in one of the more intriguing and eye-catching groups as the Champions League draw was made in Monaco.
Guardiola, who replaced Manuel Pellegrini at the end of last season, is Barcelona's most successful boss, leading the Spanish club to 14 major trophies between 2008 and 2012.
He helped the Catalans, who are five-time European champions, win the Champions League in 2009 and 2011.
