Soccer Corner Betting Tip

Soccer Corner Betting Tip

Betting on corners is one of the more interesting bets to make
if you plan on watching a live game.

Typically the bet is a bet on whether a certain amount of corners
will or will not be exceeded.

Every attack by either side can have you hoping for or fearing
that it results in a corner.

As ever with betting however one should not make a bet because of any buzz factor. Read the rest of this entry

MATCH: Newcastle
go into this fixture with a squad decimated by injuries and unsettled by want
away players. Shay Given has reportedly handed in a written transfer request
and looks set to join Man City, which will be a huge loss. Their injury situation
was bad enough at the start of the week, but the loss of Michael Owen and Joey
Barton on Wednesday night has turned it into a full scale crisis. With Mark
Viduka, Shola Ameobi and Obafemi Martins all injured too, the goalscoring responsibilities
will fall on the shoulders of inexperienced youngster Andy Carroll. He will
be supported by Damien Duff in what will be a very weak looking attack. Charles
Nzogbia added to Joe Kinnear’s problems yesterday by taking great offence to
his manager miss pronouncing his name in an interview. Nzogbia has refused to
play for Kinnear again and is really just using the incident as an excuse to
engineer a transfer before the window closes.
if you put the injury/transfer crisis to one side, Newcastle have been in awful
form lately, picking up just a single point from a possible fifteen and getting
dumped out of the FA cup by Hull. Their excellent home support usually makes
it unwise to oppose the Geordies at home, however, the St James’ Park faithful
seem to be growing disillusioned with events at the club. Incredibly, there
are still tickets available for what should be one of the biggest games of the
season. Just seven wins in their last twenty home games also suggests that St
James’ Park is no longer the fortress it once was.
are in decent form with just one defeat in five games. They have kept back to
back clean sheets and possess a dangerous forward partnership in Cisse and Kenwyne
Jones. Steed Malbranque is the creative influence in midfield with eight assists
so far this season and Sunderland will look to him to provide the ammunition
for the front two. The Mackems are also boosted by the return of Kieron Richardson
who scored the winner in the reverse fixture at the Stadium of Light earlier
in the season.
has been a gamble already on Sunderland but they are still value at 2/1 in my
opinion. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Newcastle go off only marginal favourites
on Betfair and would be happy to back Sunderland at 7/4 or better.

is difficult to judge how many goals there will be in this game as there is
no strong trend in any of the stats. Newcastle games tend to feature a high
number of goals with this especially being the case in home games. Sunderland
games tend to be relatively low scoring affairs however. Recent head to heads
are also evenly split between under and over 2.5 goals. If I had to go one way
or the other I’d probably back overs at evens. Newcastle’s injury problems,
and the absence of Shay Given, should see Sunderland score at least one, forcing
Newcastle to attack and leave space on the counter. An early goal could open
things up dramatically. That said, Newcastle’s depleted side don’t look to have
many goals in them.

best bet here has to be Kenywne Jones at 12/5 with Skybet to score anytime.
Jones is bang in form with five goals in seven league games. He will fancy his
chances against Steve Harper and is a very fair price. Djibril Cisse is another
player with chances of getting on the score sheet and is also backable at 11/5.
Cisse is Sunderland’s top scorer with eight league goals. It’s difficult to
make a case for any Newcastle player but if I had to pick out someone I’d go
for Steven Taylor at 13/1 with PaddyPower to score anytime. He is a threat from
set pieces and most other firms are just 9/1.

Weekend Football

Manchester City v Manchester United, Sunday, Sky Sports 1, 1:30pm

City welcome United to the City of Manchester Stadium, with their two victories in last years Manchester derby’s fresh in their memories. City won this fixture 1-0 last season, although it will probably be the 2-1 win at Old Trafford that they will draw from in the build up to this weekend. United will be looking to avenge those defeats, the first time City had done the double over United in nearly 40 years. They have overcome their slow start and are now looking to close down Chelsea and Liverpool’s 8 point lead over them.

West Ham will enter this game with some confidence following their win over Sunderland last week. That was the Hammers first win since September, although they face a difficult task at Anfield.

Liverpool are 1/3 favourites with bookmakers VCbet to continue their time at the top of the Premiership, with West Ham 9/1 at Pagebet to shock the league leaders at Anfield.

1pt Fulham to beat Tottenham in the Premiership, 12/5 PaddyPower or 23/10 Bet365 (Saturday 15th November 3pm ko)

It is very important not to get too carried away with short term trends when betting on football, and to keep focused on the bigger picture. Juande Ramos was sacked as Tottenham manager after a terrible start to the season left Spurs bottom of the Premiership. He brought in a number of expensive signings over the summer and Spurs were expected to mount a challenge to the big four. However, the loss of Robbie Keane and Dimitar Berbatov late in the summer was a big blow and was a major factor in Spurs poor start in my opinion. Since Harry Redknapp has taken over, Spurs have suddenly come to life and are unbeaten in six games under their new manager. However, just as Tottenham were not as poor as their form suggested under Ramos, they are also not as good as the form they are currently experiencing under Redknapp. The media has gone overboard as a result of this good run and a number of bookmakers appear to have swallowed it.

The fact of the matter is that Redknapp has had a huge amount of luck so far in his short career as Tottenham boss. He started off with a home game against a very poor Bolton side and unsurprisingly picked up three points. This was followed by a trip to the Emirates stadium for the North London derby with Arsenal. Spurs nicked two late goals and gained a point they did not deserve. This was down to Arsenal carelessly throwing away the lead with sloppy play, rather than Harry masterminding some great comeback. Next up was Liverpool, who in Redknapp’s own words “murdered us”! The Scousers should have been 4-0 up before an own goal levelled things up and again Tottenham nicked a late goal to win it. Spurs didn’t deserve a point that day, let alone three. Last weekend saw more of the same, as Spurs trailed Man City before two sendings off allowed them to steal the points. Another win followed in mid week and from the praise being lavished on Redknapp once again by the media, you’d have sworn it wasn’t a Liverpool reserve team containing ten changes they’d just beaten?

So now we have a situation where Tottenham have been priced up as short as 11/10 (48% win chance) to win away from home against a Fulham side with a home record on a par with the big four. The cottagers have lost just one of their six home games, have won four times in front of their own fans already and only Chelsea have conceded fewer goals at home. Like previous seasons, it is their away form which is letting Fulham down with just a single point gained on their travels. Tottenham’s price looks even more ridiculous when you look at their own away form, not just this season but over the last several seasons. Their fortuitous victory over Man City was just their first away win of the season and last year they won just three times away from home. The season before that, they managed five away wins and the season before that they managed six. In fact, over the last three season Tottenham have won just 23% of their away fixtures, which equates to an average price of 10/3! Another factor here is that Tottenham have not won at Craven Cottage since 2002! Their record in that time reads W0-D2-L4.

Whilst their form at the moment is impressive, it is also very misleading and Redknapp joked during this week that he should resign now as things could only go down hill from now on. I think he was spot on, things can only go down hill, and Redknapp is still talking about avoiding relegation, rather than challenging for European places. Tottenham have been leaking goals by the hatful all season, the only thing Redknapp has done, is to get them scoring themselves. The defence changes every week as Ledley King’s injury only allows him to play every other week. This has caused a lot of uncertainty in a back four that already has suspect full backs defensively and which sits in front of one of the most unreliable goalkeepers in the Premiership. It is no secret that come January, Spurs will be signing a new keeper to replace Gomes and Shay Given was being linked with a move this afternoon. Gomes is a complete liability at set pieces and with crosses in general. He is just as likely to clatter one of his own defenders as he is to clear any danger.

If this game was played a month ago, Fulham would probably have been favourites. The prices on offer are being dictated by a short term trend and anything over 15/8 is fantastic value in my opinion. Fulham have already beaten Arsenal at home this season and in Danny Murphy, Simon Davies and Bobby Zamora, they have three Spurs old boys who will be fired up to put one over their previous employers. Andy Johnson is returning to full fitness and has three goals in as many games too. Fulham have to be backed to make it three home wins on the bounce.
