Best of luck with all your footy plays.

Mainz v. Werder Bremen | Bundesliga

THE PLAY: Werder Bremen ML @ +200 | .2u

THE PLAY: Werder Bremen -1 @ +370 | .2u

Mainz is in a relegation scrap. Its last five form and recent gameplay deserve fading. Werder Bremen has scored at least a goal in over twenty straight appearances in all competitions. The Joshua Sargent-spearheaded attack’s propensity to ripple the back of the net l is generally undervalued on betting markets.

Everton v. Arsenal | Premier League

THE PLAY: Everton -1 @ +295 | 1u

We play early in hopes James Rodriguez’s quality service will return to boost Carlo Ancelotti’s Toffees. Regardless, Everton is undervalued by the markets in this spot. Arsenal’s form has been so brutal that the press has heated Mikel Arteta’s seat with preliminary questioning. Dissent, which would have been unthinkable not long ago following Arsenal’s surprise FA Cup coup earlier this year, is now real.

Levante v. Real Sociedad | La Liga

THE PLAY: Real Sociedad -1 @ +225 | .65u

We are trusting either Mikel Oyarzabal or David Silva to return to the top La Liga side. We back Sociedad to get over the hump continuing its winning ways against relegation-positioned Levante.

Osasuna v. Villarreal | La Liga

THE PLAY: Villarreal -1 @ +230 | .6u

This play is a fade of a relegation-positioned Osasuna who has not won in six consecutive La Liga outings.

Newcastle/Fulham | Premier League

THE PLAY: Newcastle/Fulham o2 @ -140 | .65u

Allan Saint-Maximin could return for this contest. Regardless, Steve Bruce’s team can score with the likes of Callum Wilson and streaking form. Scott Parker’s squad has shown they can score this season. We believe the markets have consistently undervalued these teams’ ability to gain results and score goals this season. We love getting Premier League o2 plays at any price cheaper than -151 for the inherent value they provide in a league where goals are scored for fun. o2 plays have been especially successful in a year where the effect of new handball rules coupled with Video Assistant Review implementation has caused the most penalties ever compared to all other European seasons at the same point (same number of games played).

Marseille v. Stade de Reims | Ligue 1

Rangers v. Motherwell | Scottish Premiership

RKC Waalwijk v. PSV Eindhoven | Eredivisie

THE PLAY: Parlay Marseille -1 & Rangers -1 & PSV Eindhoven -1 @ +301 | .2u

Feel free to play these separate. We are riding them together for juice purposes.


Werder Bremen ML @ +200 | .2u

Werder Bremen -1 @ +370 | .2u

Everton -1 @ +295 | 1u

Real Sociedad -1 @ +225 | .65u

Villarreal -1 @ +230 | .6u

Newcastle/Fulham o2 @ -140 | .65u

Parlay Marseille -1 & Rangers -1 & PSV Eindhoven -1 @ +301 | .2u
