Things to consider before placing sports bet on golf

Choose a selection of eight players, two in the top ten, three from the top twenty and three from top fifty. Visit the European Tour web site or PGA Tour web site to see past form on the course and current form in recent events. Visit several online sports bookmakers and find out the odds of players in a tournament. Before placing a bet take into account the current order of merit position of each player. If a pro has just made enough money to make the top 120 it might be worth having a spread bet on their next finish as they may well be able to relax and attack more confidently, having secured exemption for the following season.
Check out the players form in last years’ British Open to see if they play well in the wind, as this is useful when assessing the weather forecast.

Do not place a bet or gamble on golf until the day before the event starts.

On the Wednesday check out the published teeing off times and then weather for the week. Find a weather site that gives hour by hour weather for twenty four hours to see if any side of the draw might be affected by wind.

Before making a final decision on which player to place a bet, visit their web site or blog to see if there is any up to date news regarding new equipment or sporting injuries – this might affect their chances.

Port FC vs Chiangrai United

Sunday, 30th July, 2017
Kick-off: 13:00 CET
Venue: PAT Stadium

Port FC vs Chiangrai United, Thailand, Premier League

Match predictions: 2X (Port FC to win or draw game)

Thai sides Port FC and Chiangrai United are playing this week on Sunday. The game is last for Matchweek 24.

Port FC are currently holding the 9th position in the Premier league while their opponent are 5 positions ahead with 13 points more.

In the previous fixture Port FC lost to Ubon UMT and moved one position down to be 9th. The novices Port Lions don’t impress at all nowadays. In last 7 matches they only won once, beating Thai Honda 3:1 at home. In the other plays we can point out draws against Siam Navy FC (2:2) and another 2:2 versus Sisaket FC. Losses were from teams that are participating in the title race, like Buriram and Bangkok United and lower-placed Suphanburi. Serbian striker Andrija Kaludjerovic is on top form and he will be main treatment for the opposition defence.

Chiangrai United are better when we talk about recent performance. 4 wins in 6 matches and The Beatles are remaining 4th position. They are still close to TOP 3 teams in the table. The difference between Chiangrai and leaders Buriram is 8 points. Previously Chiangrai defeat 3:1 Thai Honda, but before that United were outplayed by Siam Navy and Bangkok United.  Both full time results – 0:2.

In head to head matches Port have positive balance without single loss. 4 times Port beat their opponents and 3 games have finished with no winner.

I expect this tradition to continue and my prediction is for hard 90 minutes for away side at PAT Stadium. It is time for Port to return on the winning road. Chiangrai aren’t constant and I think they won’t win this time versus tough opponent.

Match forecast: 2X (Port FC to win or draw game)

Persipura Jayapura vs PS TNI

Sunday, 23th July, 2017
Kick-off: 09:00 CET
Venue: Mandala Stadium

Persipura Jayapura vs PS TNI, Indonesia, Liga 1

Match predictions: 1 (Persipura Jayapura to win)
Persipura Jayapura vs PS TNI - Indonesia Liga 1Indonesian title contenders Persipura Jayapura take PS TNI at home on Sunday. The game is part of Matchweek 16.

Persipura Jayapura finished second in the previous campaign of the domestic championship and nowadays they are ambitious to improve their own overall performance. After 15 matches played, The Black Pearls are 3rd in the table, with only one point less than leaders Madura United and PSM Makassar. They made two mistakes before 3 rounds, when they failed to win against Persija Jakarta on away (1:1). When Persipura faced Perseru Serui, they made another mistake. They made comeback after conceding two goals, as they scored two for second draw in a row. Most recently Persipura Jayapura put great performance and beat 2:0 Arema on away.

The opponents PS TNI are in the middle of the table with 22 points, but they are closer to the top than to relegation zone. The difference to leaders is 7 points and to the bottom – 17  points. TNI were without win this month, but they break this row, as  they defeated Gresik United in the past days.

Persipura Jayapura lastly loose in the beginning of June, when the other title contenders Madura and Makassar generated them two painful headshots.

Now, Jayapura’s current form is good, but not perfect. TNI are stable and will play attractive football as often. This will be advantage for the home team who have enough quality to win 3 points. More than two goals in the match is also good option for betting.

Match forecast: 1 (Persipura Jayapura to win)

Yanbian FC vs Shanghai SIPG FC

Saturday, 15th July, 2017
Kick-off: 03:30 pm Local time
Venue: Yanji Nationwide Fitness Centre Stadium

Yanbian FC vs Shanghai SIPG FC, China, Super League

Match Predictions: 2 (Shanghai SIPG to win)

Yanbian FC vs Shanghai SIPG FCChinese sides Yanbian and Shanghai SIPG FC face each other in the first game from Saturday’s schedule of Gameweek 17.
Yanbian are on the bottom of the table with just 10 points. The Tigers won 2 times and made 4 draws from 16 games played. They defeated Guizhou Hengfeng Zhicheng (1:2) on away in the beginning of July to break strike of over 5 matches without victory. Despite the positive result, Yanbian were disappointing in the next match at home versus Chongqing Lifan – Loss 0:4.

Shanghai SIPG are second in the table, just one point down to leaders Guangzhou Evergrande. In the same time Shanghai SIPG were beat by Changchun Yatai on away last week (4:2), after poor play in the first half and 3 goals on passive on the half time (3:0). This negative result broke strike of 6 matches with no loss. Before that, the team, where Brazilian superstars Oscar and Hulk are playing, secure wins against Jiangsu Suning (0:1), Henan Jianye (4:1), Liaoning Hongyun (4:1) and Jiangsu G.(2:3) in Asian Champions League.

In head-to-head matches Shanghai SIPG are dominating with 4 wins from 5 matches. Only once both teams finished equally.

I think the away side is better and need a win to try to climb to the top. Players have more class. Yanbian need wins to progress from the bottom, but I don’t think this is the right moment.

Match forecast: 2 (Shanghai SIPG to win)

Port FC vs Bangkok United

Sunday, June 25, 2017
Kick-off: 13:00 CET
Venue: PAT Stadium

Port FC vs Bangkok United (Thailand Premier League)

Match Predictions: 1 & Over 2,5 goals (Port Fc to win and more than 2 goals to be scored in the match)

Bet365 offer great odds for the match

Port FC vs Bangkok UnitedTwo teams from Thailand’s capital – Bangkok meet each other on Matchday 19 from Thailand’s Premier League.

Port FC is 8th, in the middle of the table with 28 points in their active. Their opponents from Bangkok United have won 4 more points than Port so far and now they are holding the 6th place. Bangkok has 8 points less than current leaders Buriram United.

Port FC suffered away defeat (2:0) from Suphanburi FC on previous match. The game was going to finish draw, but late goals by Dellatore and Velez changed the final result. Before that, Port Lions were on a way to win after they had advantage of 2 goals on away against Sisaket FC, but another two late goals in the their net made the game draw after final whistle. One week earlier Port won at home against bottom-ranked team Super Power Samut Prakan – 5:3.

Bangkok United beat 5:4 Thai Honda in a spectacular game from Gameweek 18. Gjurovski, Boskovic and Dechmitr give classical advantage to Bangkok after 50 minutes on the pitch, but in 4 minutes Akimoto and Roninho scored and keep the intrigue. Bangkok answered with another 2 fast goals – Purisal and Boskovic again found the net – 5:2. Players thought that the match is over and start playing on slow tempo. Thai Honda didn’t give up to the end and sent back two deserved goals to complete the final score – 5:4.

Both teams score and concede many goals, which mean they have problems in defence. When they have solid advantage in score most of the players lose concentration and this is negative side. I expect Port to score first in the game, but it’s possible Bangkok United to turn the result to achieve win.

Match forecast: 1 & Over 2,5 goals (Port Fc to win and more than 2 goals to be scored in the match)

Juventus FC vs Real Madrid CF

Saturday, June 3, 2017
Kick-off: 19:45 CET
Venue: National Stadium of Wales

Juventus FC vs Real Madrid CF (UEFA Champions League)

Match Predictions: 1 (Juventus to win UEFA Champions League)

Juventus FC vs Real Madrid CF - UEFA Champions LeagueBattle for the UEFA Champions League trophy will be played at National Stadium of Wales in Cardiff this Saturday. Both finalists are Italian side – Juventus and Spanish one – Real Madrid.

Juventus will try to finish as winners of the tournament for the third time in history. Bianconeri won it for the last time in 1996, when Ajax was defeated in the final match. Since then, Italians have lost 4 finals and with total of 6, there is no team that have more 2nd places in UEFA Champions League than Juventus.

On the other hand Real Madrid’s target is to become the first club to defend their title since renaming the tournament to UEFA Champions League. Spanish club is the most successful in the history with 11 trophies.

Both teams won their domestic leagues. Juventus won Serie A last week when Massimiliano Allegri’ players beat Crotone and became unreachable on the top of the table. Real won the race with Barcelona to triumph in LaLiga. Los Blancos finished first after win over Malaga in the last fixture.

Madrid and Juventus have had great season so far. Brilliant performance by so many players, a lot of records broken, a year to remember. Winner of the tournament may will show who will be and the next winner of Ballon d’Or – Cristiano Ronaldo or Gianluigi Buffon. Ronaldo is pure class, top scorer, record broker, fantastic, dream player. Buffon – true legend. May be this is the last opportunity for him to win the trophy, missing in his collection. Real have one of the best passers in the world – Kross and Modric. Another strong side of the team is attacking defenders – Sergio Ramos and Marcelo. Isco and Benzema are players that can determine every game. The Old Lady strongest side is defence. Bonucci, Barzagli, Chiellini and Buffon is the perfect Italian wall. Juve is the only team that didn’t loss single game in the tournament so far. Daniel Alves is key player and it will be great to watch personal duel between him and his national teammate Marcelo. Dybala and Higuain are the edges of Italian attack.

I match this game with another final. In 2012 Chelsea beat Bayern at their home, two years after they lost the semifinals to Barcelona and 4 years after losing the final against Manchester United in Moscow. Juventus fails before two years, when Barcelona defeat them in the final, but now, two years after, I think there isn’t any strength that can stop Bianconeri.

Match forecast: 1 (Juventus to win UEFA Champions League)

Geylang International vs Hougang United

Saturday, May 20, 2017
Kick-off: 12:30 CET
Venue Jalan Besar Stadium

Geylang International vs Hougang United, Singapore, S league

Match Predictions: X (Draw Game)

Geylang International vs Hougang United (Singapore, S league)Geylang International face at home Hougang United on Saturday. The game is part of Matchday 8 of Singapore’s S league.

Both teams are in the middle of the table. Geylang is 6th, while their opponents are 5th placed. The distance between them is only two points. This means if home side win on Saturday they will go 5th just in front of Hougang.

In last 5 matches Geylang’ form is fluctuating – balance: 2 wins, 3 loses. The team crashed 0:4 at home versus Tampines, but after this bad result came 2 consecutive wins – against Young Lions (0:2) and Brunei (2:0). In the last match for April Geylang lost on away from Home United (3:o). This game will be remembered with 2 sent off players from The Eagles and 2 penalties awarded for the winners. Another loss came in the last match. Japan side Albirex Niigata won at Jalan Besar (0:1) to head the table nowadays.

Hougang United’ away performance contrasts to home. At home Hougang suffered defeat one time – 0:2 versus Home United on 9th April. But there is only one win on away from 4 matches. Most recently Hougang beat Brunei 0:2.

Both teams met in the opening match for the campaign, as Hougang played better and secured win – 2:0. Kogure and Hussain helped their team to win 3 points with 2 goals.

The game can be predicted hardly. It will be tough match, but I think Geylang have advantage as home side. Despite that Hougang have better players in the squad and after most recent win they will be more confident. Draw game is risky bet, but it’s not devoid of logic.

Match forecast: X (Draw game)

AS Roma vs Juventus-Italy-Serie AThe winner of Serie A for this season can be determined in the end of the week. Juventus and Roma are main contenders for Scudetto and they are facing each other on Sunday at Olimpico.

If Roma win the derby, The Wolves will keep their chances for the title, but they will have to pray Juventus to won no more than 1 point in the last two matches. Furthermore, Roma need only win in every game.

If Juventus don’t lose their visit in Rome, The Old Lady will be crowned as champion for the current campaign and the remaining two games will not matter.

Roma are now second in the table, 7 points down to Juventus. Previously, Giallorossi defeat AC Milan on away (1:4), but before that they failed to beat Lazio (1:3) and Atalanta (1:1).  These two mistakes decreased to minimal Roma’ hopes for Scudetto. Team’ and league’ top scorer Edin Dzeko is missing the meeting due to calf injury. It’s likely to see playing legend Totti on the pitch among the starting line-up. Salah and Nainggolan are in bad form.

Juventus will defend their title if they don’t lose the upcoming game. In the middle of the week we saw how strong are Bianconeri. There aren’t any weaknesses in this team. Goalkeeper, defence, wingers, midfields and forwards from world class. Juventus eliminated AS Monaco and qualify for UEFA Champions League final. After wonderful recent performance, players will be confident for the next match. Sami Khedira is doubtful for the clash, but his replacement Marchisio is as good as him.

Expectations are for opened, attacking game, fast tempo and direct style of play. Roma have nothing to lose in this match and need a win. I think away side will accept playing in their half and may be Alegri players will use fast counter-attacks. I think this tactical approach will bring the title to Torino.

Match forecast: 2 (Juventus to win)
