Top 5 Bets for the Weekend: October 5-6


The last weekend before another international break serves up some exciting league football across Europe. Here are Top 5 Bets for the Weekend for you to consider. Bet on football here. 

Liverpool v Leicester City – Both Teams to Score – 1.75

League leaders face third-placed Leicester City at Anfield as they look to continue their perfect start to the season. Leicester have made a solid start to the season and have lost just once in seven games. Both the Reds and the Foxes have kept just two clean sheets in their seven league games this season. Both teams have scored in five of the last six meetings between these two rivals.

Freiburg v Borussia Dortmund – Borussia Dortmund Win – 1.60

Freiburg have made a great start to the season and sit second in the Bundesliga standings just a point behind leaders Bayern Munich. Dortmund have won just once in their last four league games. However, Lucien Favre’s men are unbeaten against the hosts since 2010 and won both fixtures last season making them huge favourites in this fixture.

West Ham v Crystal Palace – West Ham Win – 2.00

West Ham are unbeaten in six Premier League games ahead of this meeting with Crystal Palace since that 5-0 loss against Manchester City. The Eagles haven’t made a bad start themselves. They sit ninth in the table ahead of Manchester United. The Hammers have won their last two league games at home while Palace lost 4-0 in their last away game. Mauricio Pellegrini’s side are unbeaten in eight games against Palace and have won four in that span.

Real Valladolid v Atletico Madrid – Atletico Madrid Win – 1.75

La Liga title challengers Atletico will hope to extend their unbeaten run to six games in all competitions when they visit Real Valladolid this Sunday. The hosts are ninth and will definitely pose a lot of problems for Diego Simeone’s side. Atletico have lost just once in La Liga this season and are unbeaten in their last three. They won both fixtures against Valladolid who have won just once in their last five league matches. Furthermore, Atletico have beaten their hosts in their last eight meetings.

Inter Milan v Juventus – Under 2.5 Goals – 1.70

Italy’s top two and probably the only contenders of the Serie A this season, Inter Milan and Juventus, go head-to-head in the Derby d’Italia on Sunday. Inter are top of the table while the Bianconeri are second separated by just two points. Three of Inter’s last five league games have seen two or fewer goals. Their last two home games saw them win with a scoreline of 1-0. Juventus last league match saw them win 2-0 against SPAL. Four of the last five Serie A games between these two archrivals have seen Under.2.5 Goals. Therefore, this looks like a cagey low scoring affair.
