Where I mention BANKER below, this signifies those matches where I think the favourites should win. These matches I would personally prioritise as regards DRT.

Remember the strategies:

Lay the 0-0 halftime score in certain signalled matches

Lay the 0-0 2nd half in matches where goals were expected but have not yet materialised

Lay the 2-2 scoreline, especially early on in matches. 2-2 shows us that teams are scoring and conceding.

Lay the away team leading 0-2 before halftime, especially if they are favourites. The home team is usually galvanised by the halftime team talk.

Lay the underdog if they score first in certain matches (especially BANKER matches where I would back the BANKERS if they conceded first at enhanced odds).

Lay the underdog scoring early in the first half, in the HALF TIME market, especially in BANKER matches.

Do note matches where one team is red carded. The opponents do tend to score next more often than not.

Dinamo Kiev scored the 4 goals I expected them to, and scored before halftime. OB v Silkeborg was another under 2.5 goals match so I got that trend correct. 1-1 the final score. The goals were late. Did you lay the late 0-0. Do remember the strategies lifted above. Both teams scored in the Elfsborg match as suggested. Elfsborg won 2-1. Skive scored first after 2 minutes away to Viborg. Now with such a strong home favourite, do remember to lay a team like Skive in the HALFTIME market . The favourites have 43 minutes in which to equalise, which they did. The Dinamo Zagreb match was a Cup Final . I thought it was a home match for Dinamo Zagreb so got that wrong. 0-0 at fulltime and 4-2 extra time. Aarau took a 2-0 lead. Did you lay them 2-0 up as Basel were expected to perform better. 2-1 it ended. Did you lay the late 0-0 in the Legia match as I suggested? Legia scored with a 90th minute penalty. 0-0 between Arsenal and Sunderland. I did lay the very late 0-0 . Sunderland got the draw they required. On to today... A few of these leagues are just forming and will be good for trading once we have some strong form. I must admit though that I was pleased with yesterday's research angles. Do remember to review the list of strategies at the top of every Daily Bulletin . With the French Open nearly with us, I'll try and include some tennis trading research. I was reminded how good tennis is yesterday. Madison Keys , 1st seed in Strasbourg was 2-5 down 1st set. She was 1.14 pre-match. She fought back but lost the 1st set 4-6. She was 0-5 down 2nd set. Her opponent was 1.03 to lay. I took some of that. What was the 2nd set score? 7-6 to Madison Keys. I could not believe it. Madison went on to win 7-6 3rd set but I had scarpered with a profit well before than as you can imagine! This is the kind of a massive **** up you'd what to see from a top seed in a tennis match. This is where the massive profits are made. I do remember Nadal one year, 2 sets down and a match point to his opponent at 0-40 and, yes, you guessed it, Rafa extricated himself from this position .  Our job? Simply to wait for top seeds and top players to make a complete horlicks of their matches.

4:30pm - HJK Helsinki v FC Inter  - 1.47 home

Standout Stats

  • 1-3 HJK, 0-2 HJK, 3-3, 2-0 HJK, 0-0 . 0-0 came in the cup.
  • This is 2nd v 4th in the Finnish top league.


  • A draw and 4 consecutive wins at home.
  • 4 consecutive home clean sheets.
  • Failed to score in only 1 match.
  • 4 clean sheets in their last 6 matches.
  • 6 of the 7 home goals scored came 2nd half.

FC Inter

  • No win in 3 away
  • Scored and conceded in their last 3 away matches.
  • Scored and conceded in 6 of their last 8 matches.
  • Only 1 away win but 2 away 1-1 draws.
  • Scored in all matches this season.

Profitable In-Play Opportunities

  • Only 8 matches this season.  Looking at Inter, both teams to score is a strong trend, but then 4 consecutive home clean sheets for HJK might scupper that.
  • I would favour the home side. Lay inter if they score first. HJK came back from 2-1 down to equalise 2-2 late on so have history for coming back from behind.

4:30pm - Haka v EIF  - 1.46 home

Standout Stats

  • No real head to heads of relevance.
  • This is the Finnish Ykkonen and is only 4 matches old.
  • Both teams have scored in the 3 Haka matches this season, Draw, Loss , win
  • Haka have scored 2 goals in each of those 3 matches.
  • Ekenas ( EIF) have scored and conceded in their 3 matches this season. 1-1, 1-1, 2-1 loss

Profitable In-Play Opportunities

  • Only 3 matches in is not enough really to be ultra confident. I would logically go with both teams to score and lay EIF if they score first, as they have a habit of 1-1 draws.
  • I think Haka could score 2 and both teams score today although I remind you, conclusions based on only 3 matches is far from ideal.

5pm  - FC Vestsjaelland v FC Midtjylland  - 1.9 away

Standout Stats

  • 4 consecutive Midtjylland wins in head to heads.
  • This is 11th of 12 v 1st in the Danish Superliga.
  • A feeling Midt are not going to be caught this season. They are 9 points clear.


  • Conceded in their last 10 at home
  • No draw in 6 at home
  • 2 wins in their last 3 home matches. Only lost 0-1 to Copenhagen at home recently
  • No 0-0 this season

FC Midt

  • Only 4 defeats all season, all came away from home.
  • Lost their last away match v 7th in the league.
  • Only 2 wins in their last 7 away matches.
  • Failed to score in only 3 matches.
  • 71% over 2.5 goals away from home
  • Only 1 0-0 away
  • Scored 10 goals away in the last 1/4 hour of matches.

Profitable In-Play Opportunities

  • Fc Midt are a bit more vulnerable away from home. Only 4 defeats all season and losing their last away match. Sequentially, I cannot really see them losing a 2nd consecutive away match.
  • Vest could be stubborn. 2nd placed Copenhagen only won 0-1 recently.
  • I would hope Vest score first today. I would certainly lay them given the expectation for over 2.5 goals and for FC Midt not to lose that 2nd consecutive away match.

5pm - Randers v Hobro  - 1.54 home

Standout Stats

  • 2-1 and 1-0 to Randers in the last 2 head to heads.
  • This is The Danish Superliga  4th v 6th


  • 2 match home winning streak
  • No defeat in 4 at home, scoring in their last 6 at home
  • Only 1 loss in their last 8 matches.
  • Beat 2nd placed Copenhagen 3-0 recently at home.
  • Only 2 0-0's at home


  • No draw in 5 away matches
  • No win in 4 matches.
  • 1-0-1-0-1-0 scored in recent away matches. Lay Hobro if they score first as they rarely score 2  recently?
  • No 0-0 away
  • Only 1 0-0 at halftime away

Profitable In-Play Opportunities

  • 4 matches remain this season and I'm not sure either side has anything to fight for as far as a European position is concerned for example.
  • Lay Hobro if they score first, if they continue to only manage to score a single goal in recent away matches.
  • Lay any late 0-0
  • Not a match which greatly appeals. Little motivation for either side.

6pm - Malmo FF v Hacken  - 1.47 home

Standout Stats

  • 2-0 Hacken, 1-2 Hacken, and 3-3 in the last 3 head to heads.
  • This is 4th v 8th after 8 matches in the Swedish Allsvenskan. Malmo go 1st with a win today.


  • Unbeaten this season and scoring consistently.
  • 3-3-3-3-2 scored in their last 5 matches.
  • A draw and 3 consecutive 3-1 wins in their last 4 home matches.
  • Failed to score in only 1 match.
  • Only 1 0-0 at halftime all season.
  • Scored and conceded in their last 5 matches.

BK Hacken

  • 2 match winning streak
  • 3 wins in their last 4 matches.
  • Loss, Draw, Win, Win in the last 4 away matches.
  • 3 clean sheets in their last 4 matches.
  • Looking at performances v current top 5, all we have is their home matches where they have drawn 1 and lost 2. Can this infer that the top sides , even this early in the season, are tough to beat?

Profitable In-Play Opportunities

  • There is no doubting that Hacken are in excellent form but all wins have come v 11th and lower in the league. Yes only 8 matches in makes this a weaker form guide.
  • Malmo have been excellent at home, 3 consecutive 3-1 home wins .
  • I think both teams could score today and Malmo not lose, in fact Malmo outscore the away side.
  • The head to heads are intriguing. If you want a value angle in, then go with head to heads  and oppose Malmo if Malmo score first. On recent form though, Malmo are the team to be with today.

6pm - Sirius v Mjallby  - 1.62 home

Standout Stats

  • 4 Mjallby wins in the last 5 head to heads.
  • Mjallby scored 4 in each of the last 2 head to heads. Note these came back in 2009 which will explain the odds today!
  • This is 4th v 15th of 16 in the Swedish Superettan after 8 matches.
  • Only 1 defeat for Sirius this season was a 4-3 defeat.
  • 3 wins and a 2-2 draw at home for Sirius. They scored 3-3-2-5 in those home matches.
  • 3-4-4-5 total goals in home matches.
  • 7 goals scored 1st half at home
  • Mjallby are on a 6 match losing streak
  • They've conceded in their last 8 matches.
  • Mjallby have failed to score in their last 2 away matches.

Profitable In-Play Opportunities

  • Early start to the season and Mjallby will want to end this losing run, and they will, soon. Look out for that, perhaps at home to fellow early season strugglers.
  • As things stand, Sirius are the form side, scoring 2+. Expect them to continue scoring 2+ goals today at home and not to lose today.
  • Given their goal scoring early in the season, lay the 0-0 halftime score.

6:30pm - Fenerbahce v Bursaspor  - 1.79 home

Standout Stats

  • 1-2 to Fenerbahce from the first leg of this Turkish Cup match .
  • A 0-0 will see Fenerbahce go through.

Profitable In-Play Opportunities

  • Not a match I have much of an angle into.

7pm - Brondby v FC Nordsjaelland  - 1.61 home

Standout Stats

  • 4-0 and 4-1 for Brondby in the last 2 home head to heads.
  • 2-2, 0-3 Brondby, 2-0 Nord in the last 3 head to heads.
  • This is 3rd v 8th in the Danish top league.


  • No defeat in 4 matches
  • 3 wins in their last 4 matches
  • 7 clean sheets in their last 9 matches.
  • Only 1 loss in their last 10 home matches.
  • Only 1 0-0 at home
  • 8 0-0's at halftime at home
  • 18 of 23 goals scored at home came 2nd half.
  • Scored first in 11 of 15 home matches.


  • No draw in 4 away matches and 7 overall
  • Conceded in their last 6 away matches.
  • 5 losses and a win in their last 6 matches.
  • 3 consecutive away defeats.
  • No 0-0 at halftime in their last 12 matches.

Profitable In-Play Opportunities

  • Head to heads are emphatic at home but overall we've had all 3 possible results in the last 3 head to heads.
  • Brondby are the form side at the moment. Enough to favour them today?
  • Incongruous stats. If based on Nords I would lay the 0-0 halftime score but then we learn that Brondby have scored 18 of their 23 home goals 2nd half.
  • Lay any late 0-0.
  • Lay Nords if they score first.
