Mr. Predictor's Football Jackpot King preview: February 1-2

I’ve written up my predictions for ten of the games on the Football Jackpot King list. Read the stats and get your tickets here.

Leicester v Chelsea (Premier League)

Leicester have only lost twice at the King Power Stadium this season, although they have just two wins in their last six games there. Chelsea haven’t beaten the Foxes in 90 minutes in any of their last five meetings, but they’re in better form right now. (X)

Fortuna Dusseldorf v Frankfurt (Bundesliga)

Frankfurt have won all three of their matches against Dusseldorf since the hosts were promoted at the start of the 2018/19 season. Dusseldorf are currently bottom of the Bundesliga, having lost both of their games since the end of the winter break. In contrast, Frankfurt have won both of theirs. (2)

Bournemouth v Aston Villa (Premier League)

This is a relegation six-pointer with Bournemouth currently in the bottom three and Villa just three points above them. The Cherries have lost seven of their last ten league games, scoring just five times in that run. Villa will be full of confidence after they reached the EFL Cup final, their second win in a row. (2)

Crystal Palace v Sheffield United (Premier League)

It’s now five league games without a win for Crystal Palace, although I should point out that four of those have been draws. They’ve taken points from Manchester City and Arsenal since the start of 2020 and should be a good match for Sheffield United, who have drawn seven of their 12 away games in the Premier League this season. (X)

Newcastle v Norwich (Premier League)

Newcastle beat Chelsea in their last league game at St. James’ Park and Steve Bruce has now got some strong signings to select from in his squad. Bottom side Norwich have scored six goals in 12 away league games this season, losing nine of those. (1)

Real Madrid v Atletico Madrid (La Liga)

Since winning the Super Cup last month, Real Madrid have been in great form. They’ve moved top of La Liga and have now won seven of their ten league games at the Bernabeu this season. Atletico haven’t won any of their games since losing in the Super Cup final to Real. (1)

Manchester United v Wolves (Premier League)

United have faced Wolves six times in all competitions since the visitors were promoted in 2018, and they have only won once. These sides have already drawn twice this season and are level on points in the table. Given United’s injury woes, they could struggle here. (X)

Burnley v Arsenal (Premier League)

Burnley have lost their last ten games against the Gunners in all competitions, including nine in the Premier League. Arsenal can call upon captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang again; the Gabon striker has seven goals in his four games against the Clarets. (2)

Cologne v Freiburg (Bundesliga)

Cologne are 14th in the Bundesliga but they’ve won four of their last six home games in the league. Freiburg are higher in the standings but have lost three of their last five league games, including a home defeat to ten-man Paderborn last Saturday. (1)

Lecce v Torino (Serie A)

What can we expect from Torino after that 7-0 defeat to Atalanta last weekend? They’ve won three of their last five away games in the Serie A, so I think they will be much better against a Lecce side that haven’t won any of their last seven matches. (2)
