We all love a big bet with juicy odds! In this feature, we’ve selected five tips with odds of over 2.00 to see if we can land a Long Shot accumulator. Bet on football here.
Portsmouth v Fleetwood Town – Portsmouth Win (2.00)
Portsmouth have won seven times in a row at home and beaten Fleetwood Town in five of their last six meetings. The only time Pompey dropped points at home to Fleetwood was back in 2013. The League One table is tight at the moment and Portsmouth need a home win in this six pointer.
Valencia v Atalanta – Valencia Draw No Bet (2.00)
Valencia got smashed in Italy when they played Atalanta in the first leg. However, their home form in the Champions League is strong, with just one defeat in their last five. That run includes wins over Chelsea and Manchester United. Meanwhile, Atalanta have lost two of their three away games in the tournament.
Liverpool v Atletico Madrid – Both Teams to Score (2.05)
Liverpool lost the first leg 1-0 and will need to go all out to turn this tie around. Atletico Madrid are known for being defensively sound, but four of their last five games had both teams on the score sheet. For the Reds, BTTS won in all of their home Champions League games since that famous 4-0 win over Barcelona.
Manchester City v Arsenal – Highest Scoring Half 1st (3.00)
Half With Most Goals is always a risky bet, but with great risk, comes great reward! Three of the last four meetings had more goals in the first half. I can see Pep Guardiola encouraging his team to beat his student Mikel Arteta early in the game, and then take it easy in the second half.
Racing Santander v Lugo – Draw (3.05)
You have to be brave, or slightly crazy to back a draw, but here we are. Racing Santander are last in Spain’s Segunda Dvision whilst Lugo are 20th. Racing have drawn four of their last five home games. Lugo have drawn three of their last five matches. The reverse fixture earlier this season ended 1-1.
Total odds: 75.00
