Manchester United v Arsenal Betting Preview Casumo

The Theatre of Dreams was becoming the Theatre of Screams for Manchester United. An opening day defeat to Crystal Palace, that 6-1 thrashing by Spurs and the lame goalless Chelsea draw all took place at Old Trafford, leaving fans scratching their heads at home.

Their away form was in contrast, fine. Wins at Brighton, Newcastle and Paris Saint-Germain showed signs of progress, but the Old Trafford disappointments hung a shadow over Solskjaer.

That was until Wednesday. Last season’s Champions League semi-finalists RB Leipzig were in town and got absolutely hammered 5-0. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s pre-match talk was all about getting his team back together and Manchester United do seem to be back to their modern-day best. 

We’re BOOSTING United

If that Manchester United side turn up on Sunday, we feel they might be too hot to handle for Arsenal. Mikel Arteta’s men have lost their last two Premier League games and you feel off-field issues are beginning to distract them. Ozil’s exclusion and redundancies at the club left a bitter taste and you feel these issues don’t do the players any favors.

United are finding their groove and Arsenal seem to be losing track; sometimes those two factors alone can help you make a prediction on the game’s outcome. 

There’s no mad science behind this one, nor any over complicated maths, just black and white honesty: United are on the rise, Arsenal on the decline. Sometimes, just sometimes, football is a simple game…

Man United to win and both teams to score was 3.80 and we’ll now boost it to 4.5 (3.5/1)

Man of the moment

Marcus Rashford can’t put a foot wrong. Everything he touches is turning to gold and we’re not even talking about his time on the pitch! He’s changing lives across the UK and scoring goals for fun. A Champions League hat-trick in the was just the tip of the iceberg for the 22-year-old, who’s got his sights set on bigger things than football.

He didn’t start the game on Wednesday, but he’ll certainly be in the line up on Sunday and you can get him to score the game’s first goal at 11/2 or 6.5.

Monday Night Football

Monday night pits two struggling teams together in Fulham and West Brom and these games are always fun. Both teams are yet to win and this can go anywhere as neither manager will settle for a draw under the tough circumstances.

With both defenses as leaky as a rusty pipe we expect goals to fly in. 

Get over 3.5 goals on Monday Night at 14/5 or 3.8

La Liga Betting Preview Casumo

And no, we’re not exaggerating. Barcelona are in 12th place. They can no longer  hide behind the “we’ve just begun” excuse as we’re already on week 8 (yes, time is flying!) It’s now make or break for Koeman as without a win, you’d fear for his job – especially given the off-field situation at the club.

Here, we’ll explore Barca’s chances, Sociedad’s top-spot cravings, Real Madrid’s determination and Atletico’s suffering.

Make or break for Barca

Halloween nights can be scary, but a Barcelona defeat to Alaves on would make the sequel of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre seem like a romantic comedy. Barça need this victory more than ever and we are very sure that Koeman’s boys are going to come out very, very strong. After the resignation of President Bartomeu we feel Messi’s form will magically return and he’ll be more motivated than me on the first Saturday night out after a vaccine is created. 

Messi did get on the scoresheet as Barcelona rolled Juventus over in the Champions League.  Perhaps the board-level resignations will provide the perfect springboard for Koeman and his team. 

Bet on a Barcelona -3 goal Handicap at 8/1 or 9.00

Get Messi to score first at 14/5 or 3.8

Real Madrid’s leap to the top

Let’s be honest, Real Madrid’s last two games at home have been more disastrous than trying to put out a fire with gasoline. It is clear that losing against Cádiz and Dinamo Kiev was certainly not part of Zidane’s plans, but despite everything, a win against Huesca sends them top for a short while! We are sure this will motivate Madridistas more than a burger on a holiday for Eden Hazard. Speaking of Hazard, he is back! Despite us picking on him we feel he’ll silence critics with a goal. 

Get Hazard to score at 31/20 or 2.55

La Real want to continue dreaming

If you told anyone in San Sebastian that Sociedad would lead La Liga in gameweek 7 you’d have been laughed at. Now, locals aren’t laughing but dancing. Real Sociedad are playing so well that we feel they are this season’s surprise package. David Silva raised eyebrows when he joined them, but the reality is, they are top, and his former employees Man City are fair from top spot in the Premier League

Despite everything, they will have to fight hard to try to beat a tricky Celta. At home, Celta are stronger than the Hulk after an intensive week of Crossfit. Even so, in Sociedad we trust and we’re backing them to win.

Correct score Ceta 0-1 Real Sociedad: 13/2 or 7.5

The home factor

Football without fans is sad, but we have identified four teams who we feel can still win at home despite no obvious home advantage. Look out Atletico, travel sickness grips:

  • Villarreal v Valladolid
  • Betis v Elche
  • Granada v Levante
  • Osasuna v Atlético 

Get the home teams to win in an accumulator at 28/1 or 29.00

 

Juventus v Barcelona Betting Preview Casumo

We’re being treated to a weekly dose of Champions League football and this week’s Specials Menu includes a tasty tie between Juventus and Barcelona.

We’re licking our lips as two of Europe’s biggest names meet in north Italy in what will be Juve’s 200th Champions League match. They are seeking a sweet century of victories against a side who have never beaten them in Turin.

Barcelona and Juventus are no strangers to one another, having most recently met in the 2017/18 group stage. Leo Messi scored twice in a 3-0 victory in Catalonia, but the teams canceled each other out in the return leg. Messi is yet to tuck into his usual plate of goals this season, but you can back him at 11/8 or 3.8 to score in Turin.

Many will remember the 2015 Champions League final, a vintage Barcelona victory against a strong Juventus side. Rakitic, Suarez and Neymar, who have all since departed Barcelona, grabbed the goals for them while Alvaro Morata scored for Juventus. He returned to the club this season, and you can back him at 11/2 or 6.5 to score first.

It’s worth noting that this will be Andrea Pirlo’s first home match in the Champions League as Juve manager. The disappointing 2015 final was his farewell match as a Bianconero, so he’ll want to set some records straight. 

Both teams enjoyed impressive victories in Matchday 1, but it was Barcelona’s hunger for goals that caught the eye. They had five different scorers in a 5-1 victory over Ferencváros.

Increased pressure on Koeman

The two opposing managers share a similar background. They are both club legends and are now still finding their feet as managers. The pressure on Koeman increased after humiliation in Saturday’s El Clasico. Real Madrid ran out 3-1 winners in Catalunya and managers’ destinies often hinge on El Clasico successes. 

Juventus have drawn their last two Serie A games and were given a 3-0 forfeit result over Napoli before the draws. Pirlo is expected to deliver Juventus’ 10th straight Scudetto this season but his team are currently three points off the pace. The undefeated AC Milan top Serie A despite having played one less game than the reigning champions Juve.

Ronaldo’s race against time

It looks likely that Cristiano Ronaldo will miss the game due to illness, having tested positive for Coronavirus while on international duty. He needs to produce a negative Covid-19 test 48 hours before kick-off. It’s worth noting he notched 18 goals in 33 games against Barcelona. His absence would weaken Juventus and rob us of a first Champions League encounter between him and Messi. 

Goalscoring threat flattened

Filling a Ronaldo-shaped hole is almost impossible. Should he play, he’s at 11/10 (2.1) to score, however without him it’s unlikely Juventus will score.

A goalless draw is priced at 10/1 or 11.0 while under 1.5 goals is available at 29/10 or 3.9.

Premier League Betting Preview

Chelsea and Manchester United were both involved in more high scoring games over the weekend. We’re getting used to seeing high-scoring fixtures this season, and that is immensely pleasing for the neutrals.

Four games in and Man United finally impressed us. They hit four past Newcastle United and fans were happy with a real captain’s performance from Harry Maguire. He endured a rocky start to the season and his red card while on international duty did little to win fans over. Many felt he needed a rest, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer stuck by his skipper, who equalized with a strong header in the first half. His response lifted the team and should things remain settled with him, United will start to gel as a defensive unit.

The goalies are the key in Man United v Chelsea

With things going the way they are, we should look forward to more goals and Manchester United will be smart to put pressure on Kepa throughout the game. He looked shaky in Chelsea’s 3-3 draw against Southampton and it was his error that led to the Saints’ second goal. In only three appearances for Chelsea, three errors from Kepa have led to goals.

Edinson Cavani didn’t make the Champions League squad but he is in contention for the Chelsea game and his quality can overwhelm the accident-prone Kepa. Against Newcastle, Manchester United’s much-changed matchday squad managed 25 attempts, with 15 on target. Adding Cavani to the mix against Chelsea will certainly increase United’s potency.

Get Cavani to score on his Manchester United debut at 2.63 or 13/8

Chelsea do have their own answer to Cavani, as Timo Werner grabbed his first Premier League goals over the weekend. The German forward netted a neat brace and provided the assist for Kai Havertz’s late goal too. We previously said he’ll need time to settle, but we’re seeing glimpses of his sharp qualities already.

United thrived in Europe too, with an impressive 2-1 win over PSG in Paris and things are looking good at last for the Red Devils. Chelsea did well to shut shop against Sevilla, with Mendy in goal. Chelsea’s outcome against United hinges on whether Frank Lampard opts for Mendy or Kepa in goal as the difference in defensive form is night and day.

Get Werner to score first at 21/4 or 6.25

Given the nature of this season, comparisons to last term do seem irrelevant. It’s worth remembering, however, that Manchester United crushed Chelsea 4-0 on last season’s curtain-raiser. Daniel James stole the show that day and he looked sharp against Newcastle too. United need to back the win in Tyneside with another this weekend so we’re expecting a solid performance from the Reds.

Chelsea won’t roll over but United’s potency upfront can be too much for Chelsea to handle. Frank Lampard’s team has conceded nine goals in five games, and double figures so early on won’t do their confidence any good.

With that said, we are expecting goals, but perhaps more evenly shared.

Back over 3.5 goals at 31.20 or 2.55

Both Spanish goalkeepers will be under the microscope and it will be their form which will determine the main outcome of the result. United have conceded 12 goals so far which is an average of FOUR per game and Harry Maguire missed the game in Paris through injury.

A high-score draw on Sunday

Another key matchup this weekend is Arsenal v Leicester City on Sunday. Both teams lost 1-0 last weekend and Leicester have now not scored in two Premier League home matches.

We saw two 3-3 draws last weekend and frankly, we love them! Six goals, points shared and often a good old fashioned comeback. Spurs collapsed at home to West Ham United despite a three-goal advantage and we’d love to see more of the same this weekend! Nothing beats a high score draw and we’re going for the jugular here:

Arsenal 3-3 Leicester City odds 40/1 or 41.00
