posticon Schalke vs Borussia Monchengladbach (FT. 2 : 0)

German Bundesliga resumes for 2020 with an exciting fixture: Schalke vs Borussia Monchengladbach. Title-hopefuls Monchengladbach will face a tough test from fifth-placed Schalke, as the second half of the Bundesliga season begins.

 

Team Facts:

  • Schalke have drawn four of their last six Bundesliga home games.
  • Borussia Monchengladbach has failed to win four of their last five Bundesliga away games.
  • Schalke have seen fewer than 2.5 goals in three of their last six Bundesliga home games.
  • Borussia Monchengladbach has seen fewer than 2.5 goals in three of their last five Bundesliga away games.

 

Schalke

The Bundesliga returns to action this coming Friday evening as the division’s four-week winter break comes to an end. And Bundesliga action is set to resume in style as an exciting clash between second-placed Borussia Monchengladbach and fifth-placed Schalke is set to get the second half of the season underway.

Schalke currently sit three places behind Marco Rose’s title-challenging Monchengladbach. However, David Wagner’s side impressed during the first half of the 2019/20 campaign. They trail Monchengladbach by just five points going into Friday’s game.

Schalke ended the first half of the season on a run of impressive form. They have lost just one of their last nine Bundesliga games. Furthermore, Schalke have made the Veltins-Arena a difficult place to visit this season. They have lost just one of their nine Bundesliga home games there this term.

 

Borussia Monchengladbach

Borussia Monchengladbach evidently had an excellent first half of the Bundesliga campaign. However, the would-be title-challengers have been far less impressive on their travels than they have been when playing at home.

Monchengladbach have currently got this season’s best Bundesliga home record. However, they have only got the sixth-best Bundesliga away record, with Schalke themselves placing above them in that particular table. Monchengladbach have failed to win four of their eight Bundesliga away games this season.

On top of that, Monchengladbach’s recent away form makes for grim reading. They have managed to win just one of their last five Bundesliga away games. Monchengladbach’s poor away form will therefore make Friday’s trip to an in-form Schalke side even more difficult.

 

On a more positive note, Monchengladbach do currently hold the Bundesliga’s best away defensive record. As these stats suggest, Monchengladbach have seen plenty of low-scoring games away from home this season, seeing under 2.5 goals in four of their eight Bundesliga away games. Similarly, Schalke have seen plenty of low-scoring games at home in recent weeks. Three of their last six Bundesliga home games have seen under 2.5 goals.

On top of this, both these teams have been relatively low-scoring when playing against other members of the Bundesliga’s current top five this season. Both teams have scored just three goals in their four games versus the top five this season and, in the reverse fixture at the beginning of this season, this game ended in a 0-0 draw. We are backing under 2.5 goals to be scored in this fixture and feel a 1-1 draw is a likely outcome in the correct score market.

 

Our prediction:

Under 2.5

In in the initial tie, Woodgate’s men, looked a real threat on the break, They can create problems for Spurs from set pieces as well

 

Tottenham

Totten has not Being to win in four games and this can be a problem, but much more serious problem might be their recent lack of goals. Tottenham have been able to score just once in their last 270 minutes of football. Such a problem is only amplified by their inability to keep a clean sheet, conceding at least once in each of their last eight.

posticon How to Profit from Ice Hockey

It’s always better to think about your bankroll and budget when you bet on hockey or any sports in particular.  Money management is important and it is often overlooked by novice bettors. They simply pick an arbitrary bet size and stake away.

 

 

People love sports and millions of Americans today not only watch their favorite games – they also wager on it. There’s a reason why people bet on sports and aside from rooting on their favorite teams, they also want to get a little bit of cash from their favorite hobby.

 

 

 

If you really want to cash in on the “mulla” then you should bet on hockey. Today, we will discuss the basic mechanics of hockey and how to bet on hockey easily. Though it’s not one of the major sports, to bet on hockey is to really gain money easily as long as you are doing it right.

 

 

 

Step 1: A Place to Wager

 

The first step is to look for a place where you can put your bet on hockey. A place where you are happy, and confident when you wager on your sport. There are lots of sportsbooks online that can securely accept your deposits and give you a great time when it comes on your sports bets. Sportsbooks will take your bets in exchange for a commission – usually 10% of the wager. This is also known as the “juice,” or “vig,” or “vigorish.” In theory, the sportsbooks don’t care who you bet on – they simply take half of their bets on each “side” and make their 10% commission.

 

Some sportsbook sites has less commission percentage but of course, it’s your job to do some research on a website when you are thinking of joining it.

 

 

 

Step 2: Set a Budget and Bankroll

 

Money management is important and it is often overlooked by novice bettors. They simply pick an arbitrary bet size and wager away. This sort of wagering tactic is very risky. It’s always better to think about your bankroll and budget when you bet on hockey or any sports in particular. Hockey is a game where everything can change in an instant. Having a sound money management strategy will definitely prevent you from losing more money than planned.

 

 

 

Step 3: Develop Reasonable and logical Expectations

 

We can’t expect to win every bet. You must understand that there will be times that we will lose a bet. It’s part of life. But the question should be “How much are you expecting to win?”

 

It may be a bit surprising that the best professionals in the business seldom achieve 60%. Most of them actually hit 55%-59% on a long term basis.

 

The thing is, we should aim to win more and lose less.
