August 22nd, 2018 Soccer Betting Tips

Graeme Written on Tuesday, August 21st, 2018

Well the Liverpool vs Crystal Palace game ended up being quite a disappointment goals wise. I expected to see a lot more counter attacking from both sides. Often a goal will open up a game but unfortunately just before half time that usually means it’s not the case.

The team that scored usually comes out after the break playing that much tighter. Palace of course were wary of Liverpools counter so didn’t throw much at them. However props to that Liverpool defense. They are looking sturdy and it’s going to make for an interesting season. Virgil van Dijk looked incredible in particular and was steady throughout.

Let’s get on with the betting tips for August 22nd, 2018:

Aston Villa vs Brentford Betting Tips:

Both teams come into this game on 8 points with 2 wins and 1 draw. Villa beat Hull 3-1 away and Wigan 3-2 at home before drawing 1-1 to Ipswich. They had a man advantage for a large portion of that game however couldn’t break down the home side.

Brentford drew 1-1 away to Stoke then got a 4-2 win over Southend before a 2-0 solid win at home to Sheffield Wednesday.

I’m conflicted as I went into this one leaning towards Villa for the win. However Brentford have shown they are competitive and both teams seem to have defensive frailities yet both look like they can score.

I see this being a hard fought game and a good battle. I think neither team will settle for the draw and both will want the win so will be going for it from the get go.

I’m taking over 2.5 goals at 1.95 odds for 0.5u. Still too early in the season to go with bigger bets. You can back this one at Bovada - get a $250 free welcome bonus although quick note for Canadians – Bet365 are live streaming the match.

Looked at all the other Championship games but nothing I am loving. That’s the problem earlier in the season is a lot of it is speculative. Time to head out and look at some leagues with a lot more data to them.

Brazil Serie A: Parana vs Sao Paulo Betting Tips:

I feel we’re getting a nice price on league leaders Sao Paulo that we have to take advantage of.

Sao Paulo are top of the league in the Brazilian Serie A taking on bottom of the league Parana. Sau Paulo are away however they have the best away record in the league and are the most in form team in Brazil at the moment.

Sao Paulo are just 3 points ahead of Internacional so results are important. Parana are really struggling at the moment and honestly just can’t score to save their lives.

The only concern is that Parana aren’t the worst at home. In 10 games played they have won 3, drew 4 and lost 3. Honestly not too shabby and at home they do seem good.

However I just think Sao Paulo will be too strong for them.

Going to do a riskier bet than normal as the price seems pretty darn good.
