Top 5 Bets for the week


The Champions League, Europa League and the Championship will serve up another week of exciting matches. We’ve rummaged through the odds and stats and come up with Top 5 Bets for you to consider. Bet on football here. 

Apoel Nicosia FC vs Ajax – Ajax Win – 1.45

Ajax’s form in the Champions League is phenomenal. Their run to the semi-finals last season has made them a force to be reckoned with. They have won four of their last five matches in the competition away from home. Meanwhile, Apoel have won just two of their last five home matches. They lost their last home match in this competition against Qarabag. These two teams have met twice before with Ajax winning one match and the other one ending in a draw. Therefore, Ajax’s pedigree and experience gives them the upper hand.

Derby County v Bristol City – Derby County Win – 2.15

The Rams have won four of their last six matches in the Championship while Bristol City have won just once away from home in their last five matches in this competition. The away side have won just twice in their last nine games in the Championship while Derby remain unbeaten this season. The Rams are favourites to get it done at home.

Middlesbrough v Wigan Athletic – Under 2.5 Goals – 1.70

The last five meetings between these two teams have seen two goals or fewer. Four of Wigan’s last five matches have seen Under 2.5 Goals. Boro’s last two matches in the Championship have seen just two goals. That being so, this match is expected to be cagey and a low scoring affair.

Cardiff City v Huddersfield Town – Cardiff City Win – 2.00

Cardiff City are unbeaten against Huddersfield in their last 11 meetings. The Terriers are winless in the Championship this season having lost twice and drawn once in their three matches. The Bluebirds home record is solid. They have won eight of their last ten games in the Championship.

Torino v Wolves – Torino Win – 2.50

These teams head into this Europa League clash in good form. Both are unbeaten in their last five matches in all competition. Torino have won their last six home games in all competitions. Wolves are playing in this competition for the first time and are yet to meet any real competition. Although they seem well-matched, home advantage gives the Italians a slight edge.
