Chelsea Vs West Bromwich Albion
Most football betting fans who have witnessed Chelsea’s downward spiral this season will argue that Chelsea shouldn’t totally be labelled as favourites in this clash. However Chelsea’s sudden renaissance since the departure of Jose Mourinho is worth noting, as they have not lost in 4 games since that time. West Brom might be higher than Chelsea on the Premier League table at the moment, but it’s largely down to Chelsea’s misfortunes and not West Brom’s brilliance. Therefore it will be wise to place your bets on Chelsea based on their resurgence as a team and the resurgence of their most lethal finisher Diego Costa who seems to have found his form at the right time.

Barcelona Vs Granada
Granada fans would have been dreading this day the moment the fixture list was released before the commencement of the season. These are matches which are won psychologically, even before a ball has been kicked. And if Barcelona come out of this game with anything less than a win, then it has to be regarded as an upset. Take a look at their head to head since 2013, 4 wins (3-1, 6-0, 4-0, 2-1) for Barcelona and one win (1-0) for Granada. An upset might be on the cards, and it happens from time to time, but with Barcelona’s form this season, football betting fans and pundits alike looking for a giant killing should look elsewhere.

Real Madrid Vs Deportivo La Coruna
Real Madrid haven’t been enjoying the best of seasons going by their lofty standards, even though they are 3rd on the table and just 4 points off first place, they have missed. However not being top has largely been self-inflicted, as they have failed to take advantage of slip ups by Atletico and Barcelona. Real Madrid are the highest scoring side in the Spanish Premier league and they come up against a Deportivo team who have found goals hard to come by as well, even though they have also just lost 3 games all season. But Real Madrid remain huge favourites in this clash as it looks like a match Real Madrid will always win even if they are in poor form, as evidenced by the head to head between these two sides in the last 5 games; Real Madrid(5W). We do hope that their coach’s dismissal will not have a negative effect on Real Madrid’s game play.

Juventus Vs Hellas Verona
Since their promotion to the Serie A in 2013, Hellas Verona have surprised many with their style, especially with the form of Legendary Italian striker, Luca Toni, who has been their main source of goals. However they have met Juventus 5 times, and they haven’t won at all, with 2 draws and 3 losses. Also this season, Juventus haven’t been at their blazing best, but even though they uncharacteristically lie 4th in the table, they are just 3 points off 1st place and Hellas Verona on the other hand lie at the bottom of the table without a win to their name this season.

Hamburger SV Vs FC Bayern Munchen
Hamburger is not a small team when their name is mentioned, however teams are labelled as either big or small based on their performances over a period of time and titles won. Therefore, we can rightly say that Bayern Munich are a far bigger team than Hamburg, and their contrasting seasons can attest to that. Bayern Munich are top of the table after playing 17 games (W15, D1, L1) and they have conceded just 8 goals in that period. Hamburger SV have equally played 17 games (W6, D4, L7), they have scored a meagre 19 and conceded 23, a goal difference of -4. I don’t see how Hamburger SV can manage to even get a draw from this game.in the last 5 games between the two sides, Bayern have won 4 and drawn 1.
