Top European Games to Bet on

Welcome back to our weekly betting preview for the upcoming weekend of sports across Europe’s top five leagues as well as an international fixture on Monday.  

Ahead of the weekend, we will take a look at some of the top matchups and share expert analysis and predictions on how they are likely to play out.  

Whether you’re a seasoned bettor or just getting started, our goal is to help you make informed decisions and increase your chances of winning.  

So, without further ado, let’s dive into the weekend’s top betting opportunities! 


Premier League PNG Image - PNG AllManchester United vs Manchester City: Earlier this season, Manchester United found themselves on the wrong end of a 6-3 battering from the Cityzens that somehow still flattered the Red Devils. Their next meeting is poised to be completely different from that October fixture.  

It speaks to both the quality of the work that Erik ten Hag has done since then, along with the improvement of the players and the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo, that Manchester United have rediscovered their best version and now find themselves meeting their city rivals as equals again: viable challengers to the EPL crown.

City, on the other hand, have been their usual dominant selves but Pep Guardiola’s chopping and changing shows that the team is still not playing how the famously notorious perfectionist wants.  

Prediction: Marcus Rashford has been in stunning form lately with 7 goals and 2 assists in 6 games since his return from the 2022 World Cup. He’ll need to shine again for United to do well here.  

For City, Erling Haaland will be City’s biggest threat as usual, but his usual partner-in-crime will be missed. As it stands, Phil Foden is poised to miss out on the City starting XI again, to the disappointment of FPL players worldwide.  

For both coaches, the level of quality off the bench might be what ultimately decides this game, giving Guardiola and City the advantage.  

Our picks:

  • Both teams to score @ 1.60
  • Over 1.5 goals @ 1.23
  • Man City to win + Haaland to score @ 2.60 


Premier League PNG Image - PNG All Brighton vs Liverpool: When the season began, few expected that Liverpool would head into a game against Brighton with the Reds widely tipped to lose but here we are.  

The absences of Virgil Van Dijk and the misfiring Darwin Nunez will be a huge loss to the Reds while Brighton, despite the absence of Leandro Trossard for disciplinary reasons, are still expected to come out tops in this game.  

More responsibility now falls on Mo Salah’s shoulders and Jurgen Klopp will hope new signing, Cody Gakpo can play much better than his debut game against Wolves showed.  

Prediction: With Van Dijk out, the Reds will find it difficult to keep out Brighton’s dangerous forward line. Trent Alexander Arnold’s deliveries and Salah’s potency in front of goal should still yield at least one goal for the Reds, even if they don’t win here.  

Our picks:

  • Both teams to score @ 1.48
  • Brighton to win with a 1-0 handicap @ 1.67
  • Evan Ferguson & Salah to both score @ 8.30 


 Italian Serie A logo and symbol, meaning, history, PNG, brandInter Milan vs Hellas Verona: It’s been a wild couple of weeks for Inter Milan. First, they beat Serie A leaders, Napoli on the 4th of January and then drew 2-2 to lowly Monza three days later.  

As it stands, they’re 10 points adrift of Napoli again. They ABSOLUTELY need to win if they’re to have any hope of reclaiming the trophy they won in 20/21.

In their way this time is an 18th-placed Hellas Verona they surpass in almost every Serie A metric. Can the Nerazzurri win to close the gap to their rivals or fall further behind?  

Prediction: We expect Inter Milan to make short work of the visitors. 

Our picks:

  • Inter Milan to win @ 1.31
  • Over 2.5 goals @ 1.52
  • Anybody to win & Both teams to score @ 2.43


Premier League PNG Image - PNG All Chelsea vs Crystal Palace: A season that looked like it couldn’t get any worse for Chelsea somehow got worse on Thursday as the Blues imploded away to Fulham.  

First, former winger, Willian opened the scoring and then after managing to equalize, Joao Felix, their January signing managed to get himself sent off after a studs-up challenge on Kenny Tete. 

It took 45 minutes to make it clear that Felix was the real deal and now his sending off deprives Chelsea of what is their best attacker for the next three games.

Crystal Palace will visit Stamford Bridge quietly confident that they can come away with the three points and as they’re led by the excellent Wilfred Zaha, we wouldn’t be surprised if they did.  

Prediction: Both teams will score here. We wouldn’t be surprised if Chelsea lost this one to make Graham Potter’s position even more untenable.  

Our picks:

  • Both teams to score @ 1.90
  • Crystal Palace to win with a 0:1 handicap advantage @ 2.08
  • Away team to win at least one half at 2.85 


Premier League PNG Image - PNG AllTottenham vs Arsenal: Death, taxes and Harry Kane scoring in a North London Derby.  

The North London Derby is one of the biggest fixtures in the English Premier League, and for good reason.  

Tottenham are currently 5th on the PL log, 11 points behind the Gunners despite having played a game more. But by Sunday, none of that will matter, such is the nature of the North London Derby.

For Arsenal, this is a golden chance to celebrate St Totteringham’s day for the first time since 2016. Despite the absence of first-choice striker, Gabriel Jesus, Arteta’s side are still 5 points clear of Man City. Whatever the result of the weekend’s other derby, the Gunners will be even more fired up either way, so the home side will need to be at their absolute best. 

Prediction: Harry Kane always scores in these fixture, doesn’t he? We also expect both teams to score. 

Our picks:

  • Both teams to score @ 1.61, over 2.5 goals @ 1.75
  • You can also bet on both Harry Kane and Eddie Nketiah to score @ 7.80

Rennes vs PSG Prediction and Betting Tips | 15th January 2023

For a team this talented, winning the league is almost a formality. The real challenge will be wining a first UEFA Champions League so Lionel Messi, Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and the rest of their teammates will use this kind of game to build up their chemistry and conditioning ahead of the knockout stage of the UCL.  

Prediction: With no disrespect to Rennes, PSG is expected to win this one easily. 

Our picks:

  • PSG to win @ 1.55,
  • Over 2.5 goals @ 1.58
  • PSG to still win with a 1:0 advantage to Rennes @ 2.45


Africa Cup of Nations - Wikipedia Cameroon vs Congo (African Nations Championship): Over in the African Nations Championship, Cameroon will host Congo in the first round of Group E fixtures.

Due to the ongoing club football calendar, many of the established stars will be absent. This means Congo actually has a decent chance to win, as several of their players play in the Congolese league. 

Prediction: If both squads had their full complement of players, Cameroon would be favoured here. As it is, we fancy Congo’s chances of springing an upset. 

Our picks:

  • Over 1.5 goals @ 1.59
  • Both teams to score @ 2.28
  • Congo to win/draw @ 1.54
