Betting bank: 28/03/12 -Barca can bag a brace in Milan

28 Mar

Morning all,

Sadly we made a 1.25 point loss on the betting bank in yesterday’s Champions league, but I’m expecting a turnaround in fortune tonight.

Marseille v Bayern Munich:

In their own league or in Uefa competitions, I don’t enjoy watching the majority of French team’s these days. They just don’t, generally, in my experience, produce enough goals for someone who likes to bet and trade on the overs markets.

Bayern Munich have been in great form recently, scoring plenty of goals. However, in their last Champions League away game, against Basle, they couldn’t find the back of the net. But that was then and they’ve since trounced Basle  and several other German teams in Munich recently you might say. True, but away to a French team and (I’ll use this theory here) in a first leg, under 2.5 goals seems more likely than over in my eyes.

In conclusion, I’d expect and like to see Bayern win 1 or 2-0, but I’ve decided not to get involved in the game pre-match and will instead concentrate on the game involving a Spanish team.

Ac Milan v Barcelona

We know these two have shared a few contests that went over 2.5 and 3.5 goals, but we also know that first leg’s can be tentative. Nevertheless, Barca and Messi are in great form, and Ac Milan ware without defensive hub Thiago Silva.

Put simply I see it as very unlikely that Ac will be able to stop Messi and co scoring a goal or two, so my bet is over 1.5 total Barca goals at 8/11 with Boyles.

I was going to do BTTS and wouldn’t talk you out of it, but I was swayed by Ac’s injuries and the form of Messi, so the die is cast for me. However, I’ve left one point free for a scorer bet and opt to use it on Ibrahimovic anytime at 9/4 with Stan James.

Recommendation: Total Barca goals over 1.5 at 8/11 for 3 points

Worth a punt: Ibrahimovic anytime at 9/4 for 1 point

All Twitter comments and bets, pre-match or in-play, relating to the betting bank can be found under #bettingbank

Anyway, whatever you choose to bet on, good luck and thanks for reading.



Results: Ibrahimovic missed an easy chance and Barca could’t score. Ended 0-0.


Total yield – 4 points


Yield so far – 5.25 points.
