Mr. Predictor's Football Jackpot King preview: February 8-9

I’ve written up my predictions for ten games from the latest Football Jackpot King list. Buy your tickets here.

Fiorentina v Atalanta (Serie A)

Atalanta are the current top scorers in the Serie A with 59 goals in 22 games. Their last away game saw them win 7-0 at Torino, while last weekend’s results put them fourth in the league. Fiorentina are ten places below them and have only won one of their last seven home league games. (2)

Hertha BSC v Mainz (Bundesliga)

Mainz haven’t drawn a single league game this season. However, they have lost 14 of those 20 games, including each of the last three since the winter break. They also lost 2-1 away at Hertha last season. (1)

Freiburg v Hoffenheim (Bundesliga)

Two defeats in a row have seen Freiburg fall below Hoffenheim in the table. The visitors have won four of their last five games in the Bundesliga and have only lost two of their nine away games this season, winning five of the last six. (2)

Getafe v Valencia (La Liga)

These teams are both in La Liga’s top six. Getafe have won their last three games to go third. They have only lost twice at home all season, to Barcelona and Real Madrid. Valencia have been strong at home but lost 4-1 to Mallorca in their last away league game. (1)

Bayer Leverkusen v Dortmund (Bundesliga)

Dortmund have won all three of their league games since the end of the winter break and have scored five goals in each of those. They’ve scored 56 Bundesliga goals this season, second only to Bayern Munich, and have won four times in a row against Leverkusen. (2)

Porto v Benfica (Primeira Liga)

Benfica have won 18 of their 19 league games this season in the Primera Liga, leaving them seven points clear of Porto at the top. Although that one other match was a defeat to Porto, they have won 16 games in a row since then and haven’t lost away to their rivals since 2015. (2)

Sheffield United v Bournemouth (Premier League)

These sides met on the opening weekend of the season when Sheffield United took a point in their first game back in the Premier League. They have been brilliant since then and are fifth in the standings. Bournemouth are 16th and have lost eight of their last ten away games in all competitions. (1)

Genoa v Cagliari (Serie A)

Cagliari’s win against Genoa this season was their second victory against them in the space of ten months. They are sixth in the Serie A, while Genoa remain in the relegation zone. (2)

Celta Vigo v Sevilla (La Liga)

Considering that they have only won one of their last 14 league games, it’s no surprise that Celta Vigo are second from bottom in La Liga. Sevilla, on the other hand, are fourth and have won three of their last five away games. (2)

Inter Milan v AC Milan (Serie A)

Inter are unbeaten in their last seven matches against their rivals and have won four of their last five derbies in the Serie A. Antonio Conte’s side have only lost once in the league this season and are 19 points above the Rossoneri. (1)
