UEFA Champions League Tuesday 17th October 2017

Eight Champions League Group matches to choose from tonight.

APOEL v Dortmund

Obviously Dortmund should win this one. But away from home and only 1.27... Move on for me I think.

Feyenoord v Shakhtar Donetsk

I don't know enough about either team to have a confident bet on this. It's the kind of game I usually only get involved in when there's nothing else on Hahaha!

Manchester City v Napoli

The first of the three English sides in action tonight. City have been scoring for fun recently and Napoli also usually have goals in them. So I had a look at the Overs markets. However over 1.5 is only available at 1.15 and when two free scoring teams come head to head it probably has 0-0 nailed on! I can't bring my self to back the 1.62 on a City win either.

Monaco v Besiktas

I fancy Monaco in this one but they've had some indifferent form the last few games. Looking at Over 1.5 Goals 1.22 seems just slightly low for me.

Maribor v Liverpool

I am a Liverpool fan so should probably look elsewhere! Even as a fan away from home in Europe, 1.19 is too low. The markets I am interested in here are on goals. Liverpool's leaky defence is well documented but they have to start banging them in at the other end sometime soon. With an attacking looking team tonight I'm going to have a crack at Over 2.5 at 1.47.

RB Leipzig v FC Porto

A lack of knowledge on this fixture makes me move on by

Real Madrid v Tottenham

The last of the three English sides playing tonight. I think Spurs may be able to get something from this fixture as Real have not been great this season. Backing Spurs at 7.6 hoping they score first and green out is something to consider. The goals markets are very low too so probably another bore draw!

Spartak Moscow v Sevilla

Apart from expecting a Sevilla win I've not really looked at this one.

So to summarise I am backing Spurs for the win and looking to green out if they get ahead. Also backing Over 2.5 goals in the Liverpool match.

Good luck whatever your bets (unless they re the opposite of mone!)

4 minutes in and Liverpool have gone 0-1 up through a Roberto Firmino goal.
13 minutes and Phillipe Coutinho doubles the lead 0-2 Liverpool.
19 minutes BOOOM!!! Salah makes it 0-3

Profit: £17.09
Bank: £65.35

29 minutes and Spurs have scored in Madrid!!! 0-1 Greening up as promised!

Profit: £12.09
Bank: £77.44

Indianapolis Colts v Tennessee Titans

Well I hope you've all had a good weekend, I know I have!! No punting for me and After watching Liverpool and Man Utd draw 0-0 I knew I'd dodged a bullet there as I'd have probably backed at least Over 0.5.

On to the NFL and looking at yesterday's results, again I dodged a bullet! Especially with the New York Giants beating the Denver Broncos. Wow didn't see that happening.

One bet I wish I had made tough was betting against the woeful Cleveland Browns. I can't believe that Houston Texans were available at 1.31 before the off. That would have been a nice easy return on my bank. Mind you I would have lost the lot backing the Broncos so glad I had the weekend off.

On to tonight's American Football and let's see what Monday Night Football has in store for us.

With both defences leaking points at an alarming rate the obvious thought would be for a high scoring game. But with no Andrew luck for the Colts and Marcus Mariota nursing an injury, if he plays, for the Titans the offences may not be able to capitalise on the poor defensive records. Under 46.5 is tempting at 2.02 but I think there may be a better bet.

Who will win? Well the Titans have home advantage and if Mariota's firing they should take this match. However that is a big uncertainty so the odds of 3.60 on Indianapolis becomes very tempting.

Then there is the handicap to look at and Colts are at evens (2.00) to win +6.5 points. Now that does start to make me think there is value. But I still fancy those big odds of 3.60

So my bet is going to be on Colts at 3.60 with a green out target of 1.80 to double my stake if it comes off.

Whatever you are on, let's hope it's a good game.

In the last minute of the 1st half Colts had a 10-9 lead and a 1st down in the red zone. The odds dropped as low as 1.62 but I had my green up set at 1.80 which had already been taken moments earlier. Colts failed to get the touchdown but converted the field goal for a 13-9 half time lead

Profit: £23.50
Bank: £48.16
