Best betting tips to bank on for Friday
League matches continue all around the globe, after another round of continental gameweek. We have picked three games that can be banked on by punters for returns on Friday.
SOUTHAMPTON vs NEWCASTLE
Southampton, unbeaten in last 5 Premier League games will aim to extend the run when they welcome Newcastle United on Friday.
The Saints defeated Aston Villa 4-3 on matchday 7 and bag their 4th win of the season after starting with two losses. The win could have been convincing and they were leading 4-0 by the hour mark and flurry of late goals put them in a spot of bother.
Danny Ings who scored his team’s 4th goals and later hobbled off the field with 5 minutes left to play is now confirmed to have suffered a knee injury and will be out for at least a month. This will be a big loss for Ralph Hasenhuttl since Newcastle are coming with some form as well.
Meanwhile, the Magpies bagged a surprised 2-1 win against the high flying Everton. They have seen all kind of results this season, but evidently look better with purpose in this campaign under the tutelage of Steve Bruce.
Newcastle are sitting at 11th in the table, 6 below their Friday hosts with 3 wins and 2 draws from 7 games so far.
The visiting Newcastle side can be a handful to teams and Southampton despite their excellent run with results can be inconsistent.
Therefore, we will go with both teams to score as the primary pick and here are my reasons. Southampton have scored in every game except one which was the season opener against Palace. But they did scored over 1.5 goals in each of their 3 home games so far.
Meanwhile, Newcastle’s scoring trend is exactly the same as the hosts and they did net in each of the three away games so far. The BTTS option is priced at 1.75 odds by 1xbet.
ELCHE vs CELTA VIGO
Elche is a promoted side but has shown great promise in the Spanish top tier this season. They are one of the handful teams that have won more than half of their La Liga clashes being the underdog.
Their arrival onto the campaign has been announced well by picking up 10 points from their six league appearances so far this term.
They will return home after a 3-1 loss on the road to Betis last time out in the schedule.
Having won only one of their eight La Liga fixtures in the schedule this season until now, Celta Vigo doesn’t pose a huge threat to the home team.
Besides, the Celtics have won none of their last seven outings in the schedule. With three draws and a win, the visitor has picked up 6 points in the table.
They will visit on the back of a 1-4 loss at home against Real Sociedad in the campaign.
Elche has made a strong impression on their return to La Liga, which gives them a slight advantage despite being a promoted side this term. The host has averaged above one goal in both scoring and conceding in the table, showing that they have a decent form in the campaign.
We can consider Celta Vigo being on a downward slope in their form. The Celts have won only one of their eight league clashes so far this season. This says trouble for the visitors in the upcoming match and also in the contest this term.
The double chance favoring Elche will probably be the best bet for the punters. Even though the visitors might be the ideal choice with league experience, there is nothing to worry about the confidence of the promoted team which they have proved in the prior fixtures in La Liga. The Home Win/Draw option is priced at 1.60 odds by 22bet.
SASSUOLO vs UDINESE
Sassuolo have been in great shape and look to take the top of the table on Friday evening, hosting Udinese for their Matchday 6 clash. They beat Napoli (0-2) last week as Manuel Locatelli opened the scoresheet from the spot and Maxi Lopez confirmed it in the stoppage time, which should have them in a great mood now as well.
I Neroverdi thus bagged four wins in five outings since late September, where they also beat Spezia (1-4), Crotone (4-1), and Bologna (3-4), before being held off by Torino (3-3) in a six-goal thriller. They scored a league-high total of 18 goals in the process and will want more of the same on Friday – promising an attacking approach.
Udinese have struggled defensively and see it costly as they sit in the relegation zone early in the campaign. They come into the match after a home loss to AC Milan (1-2) untangled by Ibrahimovic’s scissor-kick late in the game. The visitors conceded eight goals in four games now behind them and could be in for more at MAPEI Stadium this time around despite great records they can boast at this ground.
We do see Sassuolo building on a great start of the new campaign and we’ll back them to secure all three points in a Home win priced at 1.90 by Betwinner. They’ve been in great shape and this feels like great value, which could prove the best approach to the fixture as well.
