Back Bayern Munich to win & under 4.5 total goals

Bayern Munich breathed some life into their quest for a seventh consecutive Bundesliga title as they embarked on a five-match win streak before the mid-season break, capitalising on a shock slip-up from league leaders Borussia Dortmund at Fortuna Dusseldorf. However, they are six points behind the table-toppers as the 2018/19 campaign resumes and that means the pressure will be on them to make it six straight victories when they head to Hoffenheim.

Hoffenheim are pushing for a top-four finish and Champions League football once again this season, and they go into this match on a 10-match unbeaten run in Germany’s top flight. At first glance that is an impressive sequence, but it becomes less impressive when I point out that their last six matches have all ended in stalemates. While being able to avoid defeat is a good thing, they desperately need to start turning those draws into victories because that run before Christmas resulted in them losing ground on the top four. But can they make a return to winning ways here?

My answer to that question is no. Bayern Munich endured a pretty miserable first few months of the season by their high standards, but they appeared to find their form prior to the short winter break and they will return to action full of confidence, looking to keep the heat on Borussia Dortmund in the title race.

Bayern should be too much for a Hoffenheim side that have managed just three home wins in the league this season, but I am not expecting them to run riot and turn this match into something of a goalfest. After all, Hoffenheim have not conceded more than two goals at home in any match this season and only two of their league fixtures have produced in excess of four goals.

Bet of the Day: Saturday, January 19

Back TJ Dillashaw to beat Henry Cejudo by KO/TKO

UFC bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw is stepping down to flyweight in an attempt to become the latest fighter to hold titles in two different weight classes, and awaiting him is a man who finally ended Demetrious Johnson’s dominance of the division last year, Henry Cejudo. So will Dillashaw follow in the footsteps of Conor McGregor, Daniel Cormier and Amanda Nunes, or will Cejudo hold onto his belt and send the challenger back to his usual weight class?

Cejudo clearly has the advantage on the ground – as a former Olympic gold medallists his wrestling chops cannot be called into question. However, that is the only area in which the flyweight champion has an edge and he could have major problems in trying to get the fight into his world.

Dillashaw is certainly no slouch on the ground should they end up there, but the key to this bout is the gulf in the two men’s striking. The challenger is simply miles ahead of the champion – he uses his slick boxing skills to set up his kicks, he throws good combinations and his movement allows him to get in and out at all sorts of angles. All of this, along with his excellent takedown defence, makes him a very difficult man to get to the mat, and if Cejudo cannot get this to the ground it is game over.

For me the question is will Dillashaw need five rounds to dethrone the champion? My answer is no. Unless he is severely drained by the weight cut, the challenger should pack plenty of power in the flyweight division and after seeing him record back-to-back stoppage wins over Cody Garbrandt, I am confident that he will have enough power in his locker to stop Cejudo with strikes.

Bet of the Day: Sunday, January 20

Back Michael Thomas to score a touchdown during New Orleans v LA Rams

As you know from our NFL betting tips for Championship Sunday we are backing the New Orleans Saints to overcome the Los Angeles Rams in what is likely to be an explosive offensive encounter, but we like our ‘Bet Of The Day’ to feel more like a banker so we are forgetting about the outcome of the NFC Championship Game and instead focusing in on one of the stars of the show.

Wide receiver Michael Thomas was in unstoppable form for New Orleans a week ago as he helped lead the team to a come-from-behind win over the defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles. Thomas provided the go-ahead score for the Saints as he caught a two-yard touchdown pass from Drew Brees late in the third quarter, and that proved to be the icing on the cake for a sensational performance from him.

Thomas was targeted 16 times by Brees during the contest and he repaid his quarterback by hauling in 12 of them for 171 yards and a score. For many that would be a season-best showing, but the Saints receiver has actually managed to top that on two occasions. He opened the campaign with a 180-yard, one touchdown display in Week 1, but his best showing of the season came against these Rams in Week 9 when he racked up 211 yards and a touchdown.

Los Angeles will almost certainly pay close attention to Thomas in this rematch, but with so many weapons on the New Orleans offense they simply cannot go all out to stop the wide receiver. And that will be a major problem for them. Thomas will see plenty of targets from Brees, he will convert those pass attempts into yards and one of those receptions could see him find the endzone for the 11th time this season.

Sports Betting Tips Guide

Here at Bettingpro, we pride ourselves on having a wealth of knowledge that spans across an array of sports. Whether it is football and rugby, or cricket and boxing, the experts at Bettingpro are not picky, and so we have created the Bet of the Day, where our tipsters find the best bets from that day across any particular sport. 

Daily tips across several sports

Bettingpro's writers cover a huge amount of sports every single day but, with so many different matches happening across football, tennis, darts, rugby, cricket and many other sports, the best bets of the day can get lost. This means that the diamond of a bet in League One could get buried under the tips for Premier League, La Liga, Ligue 1, The Championship and so on. Therefore, we endeavour to bring you the best bets all in one place, giving you the ultimate one stop place for the best bets on that particular day. 

These best bets will generally come form a lower profile football or tennis match, while they may differ from the opinions espoused elsewhere on the site. 

When is Bet of the Day posted?

Our best bet will be posted as soon as it becomes available each day, The staff on that day will pick their best bet and post it right here every morning, giving you plenty of time to back the tip that day. 

Giving the reader confidence in our tips

This is because the object of the Bet of the Day is to be something of a banker, a selection that can be taken with confidence based on the opinion of our writers and the statistical evidence. It may not always be a fantastic priced selection but the aim is to provide a winner and thus ensure a profit at the end of the week.

These picks can be taken on their own as singles or they can be used to bulk up any multiples which Bettingpro.com's readers have already selected. They may well actually be bets that readers have already considered but just with some reasons that maybe help to reinforce the selection.

However, that is not to say that the Bet of the Day will be a real odds-on choice or will have no value. Our writers are punters themselves and wouldn't ever recommend backing a 1/10 shot or a multiple involving several short priced favourites. We want to provide our readers with selections that will ensure long term profits and will not play into the hands of the bookmakers.

Sometimes it may even be a bookmaker offer that is selected as Bet of the Day as frequently in their desire to entice customers the big bookmakers often take trading risks and offer ridiculously large odds and we feel that it is our duty to the readers to inform them of these opportunities. An example of this was at the Cheltenham Festival when Coral offered Evens on Sprinter Sacre. It was an obvious choice and after featuring as our Bet of the Day Coral were inundated with punters trying to back the selection. The firm stuck with the price but their website crashed when Sprinter Sacre romped home and everyone rushed to get their bets!

The aim is to back more winners than losers!

That is just one example of a successful Bet of the Day, but if you check the column every day you will see winners. Unlike some sites we don't shirk from reality and will analyse the selection from the previous day and we are more than happy to admit if we get it wrong (everyone makes mistakes). However, we at Bettingpro.com are confident in our writers abilities and believe that anyone who follows Bet of the Day for any length of time will be enjoying profits, not bemoaning losses.

In addition to Bet of the Day, we also provide an Offer of the Day column, where we look at how best to use the money back specials running on a particular sporting event. This could be a refund on a First Goalscorer in a Premier League football or money back on a final frame decider in a snooker match. In this we will try to not only explain our reasons why the bet itself is a good one but also why having the insurance or enhanced odds from the offer makes it an unmissable bet. This is a slightly bigger risk than the Bet of the Day but the reward is, of course, much better, with some fantastic odds available at times.
