Sweden vs. Denmark ( round 1)

Good morning, for some of you maybe it is not still morning, but the sun in my room told me to start writing, before it was too late. This week is not rich for a sport-football events as the Euro 2016 , Playoffs (knock out stages) will be played. As you had seen on the picture, I will be speaking and giving predictions about Sweden and Denmark first leg game on Saturday in Stockholm.

This game and the result 2-2 was one, that  Giovani Trapatoni the former trainer of squadra adzurra, told the both teams will make before the game , in order Italy not not to go ahead from the group stages ( Euro 2004 in Portugal). I am not that aware , if the match was deliberately made for this score to end, but the facts does not lye. I am not here to blame anyone, I am here to discuss and write about football. The main reason , that I put this picture on my post, is that me , you , all of the fans of both teams want to see many goals , not rude plays and press all around the field. Football is a game of goals ….

I respect both teams very much and I will tell you why. The Bulgarian national team, unfortunately was badly beaten by both squads, but I can not cross my heart and tell that they are not countries, who produce very good and essential football talents : Laudrup brothers, Peter Schmeichel and his son nowadays – Casper, Dani Agger (one of the best defenders in the world),Morten Olsen , Nicklas Bendtner and many others. On the other side we have names and stars like : Thomas Ravelli ( amazing goal keeper and good friend of Stoichkov) , Henrik Larsson( a true magician with the ball, a man who had  scored from any positions, no matter with any leg or with a head, there were no secrets for him in the game of magnificence), Fredrik Ljungberg ( another master of the pass and incredible shots from middle distance), Marthin Dahlin ( one really intelligent player in and out of the pitch) and the most brilliant player in Europe and World nowadays – Zlatan Ibrahimovic. His name on Slavic languages, mine also and in Serbian , means the Golden one 🙂  All these players, please forgive me if I miss someone, but this can always can happen, it is not deliberately done, they gave a lot to us – fans.

Now it is time to see and check what my betting partner and odds provider – William Hill has brought to our attention as bettors  and punters, searching for the value not only around the corner . First of all , I think that Sweden will win with 2-1 or 2-0 as a final result. In the last 5 games, Sweden had lost 4 times and commit a draw result in the 5th ( 0-0) against Denmark. The time and place are on the side of the “three crowns “. Zlatan will definitely score, he is a man able to do genius things with the ball and on Saturday he will show his great class. Let’s focus on the outcomes and winning markets with the correct odds, provided by W. Hill :

  1. Race to 2 goals ,Sweden – 1.85. This is my favorite market, as most of my regular readers already know.
  2. To keep a clean sheet , Sweden – 2.45. This can be staked with small percentage of your bankroll, as Denmark could score one goal as well.
  3. Sweden to score in both halves – the odds is 4 . I think that the home squad will try to score an early opener, in order to surprise their opponents, and also to bring enjoyment to all the fans at the stadium and in front on the TV’s.
  4. Match goal between 1st and 15th minute   – the odds is 3.5 and has a great value. The Swedish team will be pressing their opponents from the very beginning of the game.
  5. Zlatan Ibrahimovic to score and Sweden to win – 4.5 . I think that Zlatan will score  2 goals ( we will be speaking about that after the game).
  6. Sweden to win and Sweden to qualify – for the game odds is 2.3 and to qualify 1.61 in William Hill.

You may say , that I do not give a big chance for the visiting team of Denmark, but I think that the home squad will be more motivated to take a big win, also they will be determined to take a comfortable result, as there will be second match in Denmark. In games with high intense and pressure, Ibrahimovic shows the very best of him. You all remember the hat trick scored against England.

I wish you a remarkable day to have from now on. Pockets full of winnings  and value bets. Also , one advise from me- smile to the world and the world will smile back to you 🙂

 

 

Bet and get

Hello , dear friends. I am always in great excitement , when it is time for great derbies to come. I am trembling and shaking from sports fever,when great and astonishing games are about to happen in not more then 24 hours time. Football as a phenomenon has the great power to divine people and to make them as one, united in passion , concentration and determination about their team to win and their bet to be with positive outcome. Football is the special cure and magical peel , which makes us look like hypnotized every time we go to the stadium or when we are sitting with beer in our hands watching the chants of the fans and the plays of our favorite teams.

Today I have brought to your  attentions 3 magical games. One is from English Premier League the other two are from Italy, Seria A. Let’s not hesitate no more and let’s take a look at my predictions for tomorrow:

  1. ChelseaLiverpool : I am a fan of the London team for over 20 years and I do not remember such bad start in this period. Mourinho has to leave and this will probably be hist last game on Stamford bridge. First of all Chelsea have to take this game ( William Hill odds is 2.05 for the home side). Second , when they are in a bad form they do not lose against Liverpool. Also I think that the game will be over 2,5 goals one ( W. Hill – 2),even the bookies are giving the favorite odds for the under 2.5 goals. Also my favorite market in William Hill, race to 2 goals – for Chelsea is 2.37. Correct results will be 2-1 for the boys from Stamford bridge.
  2. JuventusTorino : The derby of the industrial heart of Italy – city of Turin. Juve are suffering a lot without many of their key players, who had left during the summer – Vidal, Pirlo and Tevez. Poghba can not be the leader and Simone Zaza is fighting with all the efforts he is capable of , to be in the starting 11. I think that Juventus will win with result 2-1 which in odds in W. Hill looks like this :number of  goals odds -1.91.exact number of goals 3 – odd 4 , over 2 goals – 2.05 ( there is option exactly 2 goals @ 3.3 which can be backed with the same bet amount as the over option in order to make and guarantee an insurance position). I propose that the Juventus goals will be score by Mandzukic and Zaza -which in decimal odds @ W. Hill is 5.
  3. Inter – As Roma :  it will be more of a hell on the stadium and on the pitch. If Mancini wants to take the trophy this year, he has to motivate his boys to take the win at San Siro. Last games for Roma are all over 2,5 goals ones. The great problems for Gary Medel and his team mates in defense will be : Sallah, Dzeko and Jervinho, all three of them are too fast and dangerous on counter attacks. On my opinion there will be a lot of corners and goals, draw results like 2-2 and both teams to achieve race to 2 goals markets line in W. Hill – Inter@ 2.9 and AS Roma @ 2.7. Icardi and Sallah to score is a very nice market – odds 6.5, you know perfectly where to make this bet.

All these marvelous games are about to be played tomorrow. By then you have plenty of time to precise and realize where your most important bets will go. Be good and win a lot with me !

 

Sports madness

Hello, dear all. It is raining in my country and I am very positive about how we will grow up. I say “we”  , because without you, my blog would have gone away, long time ago. Writing is not just a pleasure , it is an adrenaline that does not let you down till you finished your post, or until the last word of idea that is coming regularly to your mind and dreams.

The dream come trough is when you watch, participate, feel, love, adore and cannot live without sports. In my daily routine I do practice fitness, basketball and table tennis. It is no need to explain you what energy you have and how powerful you feel after practicing the most beloved sports. It does not matter from the age or from your social status, but sports are the most valuable motive and scenario, which helps us to survive during the long way called life and freedom.

Have you ever thought that the most free people are the mad ones, they do not obey rules and do follow directions , whispered by their inner voice. We have come today to speak about sports madness and how I had such one several years ago. It was a crazy decision taken by impulse and I never regret about it. I gave myself a word , that I will watch sports events for 24 hours, no matter of the sport, no matter of where the event is watched – PC or TV, just watching and obtaining emotions .During that process , I tried to keep all of my senses open, because afterwards, I was about to make an analysis.

This day was a sunny Saturday morning. I started with football from South Korea, with the morning coffee. The next episode was a game from Japan, J-League 2.( When you are totally in love with sports, the time just passes like that, like a blink of an eye, or just a click with  fingers). The third game was Philippine’s basketball game(in this country, they do play very nice and interesting games, with many players from US and the rules of NBA ). On the scene came the early game from UK, Premier League on the TV. There are moment, when you just hear how the fans are singing. I have my favorite moments , when I listen to fans singing from Italy, UK ,Germany,Japan and Argentina. The most memorable thing is that they sing not only during the time-play of the game , they sing even before and after it. The feeling is gorgeous. It was time to change the sports and watch some tennis. I love Nadal, Rafa, This is the guy who knows how to play not only in clay. He has very smart hits and is moving like a tiger all around the corner, chasing every hard ball accepted. In my opinion there are top 5 best tennis player for all time – Nadal,Djokovic, Federer , Agassi and Sampras.  Suddenly , I felt interest to watch football again and switched the TV on Eurosport for a German, Bundesliga game. I have to say big thanks and to ask you to move your hats down for the fans of Borussia Dortmund ,Schalke 04 and Bayern Munich. In all of the games of these teams, I had watched, they were that noisy , that the feeling was as you have been in the center of volcano or like storm going strong. During the time of that marathon, I tried not to be for a long period away from my source of sports madness.It was 20:05 and was about time for the early game in NBA. When I watch basketball, I do totally crazy. I begin to shout , to jump , to say bad words 🙂 I am totally in the game. I love this game and most magical and amazing team is when the ball goes in the basket, trough the net. Three hours later , there was another game from the best basketball Championship all around the globe. I watched a lot and decided till 09:00 in the morning on the next day to watch only baseball. It was not long ago, when I traded baseball. It is not that popular here , in Europe, but it is a sport with a special magic and blaze of glory.

After the final game ended , it was time to mane an analysis, about what was the feeling during that 24 hours marathon in watching different sports:

  1. My mind was full with new impressions and ideas. My eyes were hurting , but it did not matter. I was happy.
  2. Sports is some special world, when you are in the deep parts of it, you never want to leave it or to stay away from it. I was one with fans, with players and trainers.
  3. I was united with ball, net , bat and the spirit of the different games. I watched the eyes and the strategies in different games , no matter if they were individual or team ones including.
  4. I watched every game in a different language . But the most powerful and inspiring thing is that the language of sport is one and it is unified. If you are in love with what you watch and practice , you perfectly realize what and how is happening.
  5. My adrenaline was on an unknown level. This was what I wanted to achieve, to jump that high in order to get to a new orbit. I love that orbit and that place.

Actually, my dear friends, I introduced you to a small part of my universe. I guess, you liked being part of it. If I was not in deep love with sports, we might never had met each other. The pleasure is all mine . See you in the next post. Be mad for every thing that you do, in order to shine not just to glitter 🙂

 

 

Serbia vs Italy

It is the European Basketball Championship going on for several days and many  interesting matches we seen. I had the chance to watch the teams of Turkey, Serbia, Germany , Italy and Greece. The tendencies are that NBA players , are much more better that the one who play in Europe and Euro League in basketball. There are also teams who have good percentage from three pointer and score a lot from there ( Serbia and Italy).

We are now here to speak about that upcoming derby. If you see the odds from bookmakers, you will think that Italy have no chance. Yesterday , Serbs smashed the Turks. The truth is that the Serbian team, was the same who made it to the World Finals in basketball previous year against US –dream team. The way Serbs are playing is the way fans and trainer want to see any team: aggressive defense, perfect points from opponent’s turnovers, aggressive rebounds and many good shoots for 2 and 3 points. Yes, they definitely do have self esteem and are really motivated to get the title.

Here come Italy now on the other side of the pitch. Galinari, Bargnani and Molinari -3 brave warriors who can score , rebound and save the team from any different situations. They made yesterday and managed to win against Germany when they had 20 points passive in the first quarter. It was a very interesting game with many points. Points in basketball are like the goals in football, everyone wants to see and celebrate more. Actually the game will be very difficult for the Italians, they are considered as underdogs , but no one knows. Also , on my opinion the game will definitely will go over points. Both teams like scoring 3 pointers, as I had mentioned in the lines above. Also I think that the plus spread for Italians worth to be played.

Before we come to the end of this post,  I would like to say few words about Milos Teodosic. Every good-balanced team has its magician , its brain, its most powerful engine, who does see the game few moves before any other participating on the pitch. This man of honor and smart enough to play chess or solve mathematical problems is able to give killing passes and score unbelievable 3 pointers at any minutes. Right now when I am writing this post, I do remember of a football genius – Pirlo. Just one year ago, he scored a marvelous goal against Torino in the very last minute for the victory 2-1 .

Let’s hope we will see a marvelous basketball performance today from the teams Italy and Serbia. They will definitely do 150 % of their abilities to have the victory at the end. Also I have a point of view and something to emphasize: beware of the game of the “magicians” on the pitch. Always behind a wonderful slamdunk, does stay an incredible pass. The show is starting in few hours, do not dare just to stay and watch.Please, participate with winning bets also.
