Bet of the Day: Tuesday, November 12

Back King’s Lynn to beat Leamington & over 2 total goals

King’s Lynn Town are loving life in the sixth tier of English football, sitting second in the National League North table as the busy festive period draws ever closer. This is the highest rung they have ever reached on the English football ladder but can they maintain this pace to maintain a sustained promotion push over the next few months? They have overcome their first real wobble, bouncing back from a five-match winless run with back-to-back away wins at Kidderminster Harriers and Bradford Park Avenue, and on Tuesday night they will look to make it three on the bounce when they welcome Leamington to The Walks.

While King’s Lynn are flying high, Leamington are desperately trying to turn around their form in an attempt to pull away from the relegation zone. Paul Holleran’s side are just three points clear of the drop zone, albeit with a game-in-hand over 21st-placed Blyth, and they go into this fixture on the back of a 4-1 drubbing at the hands of Southport – their fourth straight defeat in all competitions. In fact, they have won just one of their last nine in all competitions and that was a penalty shootout success at lowly Chasetown in FA Cup qualifying. Their last win in 90 minutes came all the way back on August 31 when they made it three wins in a row at the expense of Blyth Spartans.

So how can I suggest backing anything other than King’s Lynn to come out top here? The question is how do we back them and make a tidy profit, because the match betting market has them as clear odds-on favourites. For me the best bet is backing them to come out of top in a match that has a healthy goal tally. Town are joint top scorers in the division with 35 goals in 16 games, but at the other end they have a very leaky defence that has produced just one clean sheet so far this season. 13 of their 16 matches have produced at least three goals, so for me the bet that screams ‘banker’ for this one is backing King’s Lynn to win & over 2 total goals.

Bet of the Day: Wednesday, November 13

Back Shrewsbury Town -2 to beat Macclesfield Town

A place in the knockout stage of the EFL Trophy is up for grabs when Shrewsbury Town and Macclesfield Town go head-to-head in a winner-takes-all match in Group D. Shrewsbury currently occupy second place in the table, three points behind group leaders Port Vale, but only goal difference is keeping the Shrews ahead of the Silkmen as these two teams prepare to meet. Will Sam Ricketts’ men hold off the visitors on Wednesday night, or can Macclesfield steal a last-32 berth from under the noses of their hosts?

Shrewsbury go into the match having lost only one of their last eight games in all competitions, but they have really found wins hard to come by over the last few weeks with a couple of narrow home victories the only successes they have managed since early October. They are in a healthy position in League One though as they try to avoid another battle against relegation, and that means they are in much better shape than the visitors.

Macclesfield are several places clear of the drop zone in League Two at this time, but they could soon find themselves sliding down into the bottom two if they cannot solve their off-the-field issues. A player strike over unpaid wages forced manager Daryl McMahon to name a makeshift side for last weekend’s FA Cup tie at home to Kingstonian, and his mix of youth players and loanees crashed to a 4-0 defeat at the hands of the non-league side. There has been no news about those striking players returning for this EFL Trophy tie, but it is difficult to see why they would sit out an FA Cup tie and agree to play in this minor competition so I expect McMahon to be fielding another starting XI of misfits on Wednesday night. That spells trouble for him and the Silkmen.

If Kingstonian could roll over Macclesfield at Moss Rose then you have to expect a League One side should run over them too, especially when they are at home. Everything is pointing to Shrewsbury running out comfortable winners here even if Ricketts leaves out some of his regulars, so I am backing them to overcome a two-goal handicap on their way to victory.

Bet Of The Day: Thursday, November 14

Back England -3 To Beat Montenegro & Harry Kane To Score Anytime

Despite an uncharacteristic blip for England against the Czech Republic back in October, the Three Lions are still in pole position to qualify for the European Championships in 2020. That blip saw Gareth Southgate's men slump to a 2-1 loss against Czech Republic as the visiting side struggled to get anywhere near the level they have been hitting consistently under their manager, with England in the ascendancy over the last few years. This loss showcased the drawbacks of their attempts to keep the ball at all costs while they looked toothless in attack as Harry Kane's fifth minute penalty felt like it had happened months before by the time the home side hit the back of the net for the second time in the 85th minute. Despite this loss, England bounced back immediately with a resounding 6-0 win over Bulgaria that was marred by disgraceful scenes off the pitch. Victory in those difficult circumstances saw England consolidate their position at the top as Raheem Sterling and Ross Barkley both starred with a brace apiece. Now, with only two games of the game left to come for England, they will be all too aware of the fact another win will see them secure their place at Euro 2020. 

Opponents Montenegro have struggled to get anywhere near the pace-setters in the group, with England (15 points), Czech Republic (12) and Kosovo (11) all a long way ahead of Thursday's visiting side, who have a grand total of three points from their seven matches. Indeed, their hopes of making it out of the group came to an end some time ago, and they are now just playing for pride, with a victory something they will hope can keep them off the bottom of the table. 

Our bet for this game revolves around England booking their place in the group-stages of Euro 2020 with a comfortable performance against the visitors. The last game between the two sides saw Montenegro go 1-0 up in the 17th minute, but their lead did not last long as Michael Keane restored parity 13 minutes later before England went up through the gears with goals from Barkley (twice), Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling. That win saw England cement their place at the top of the table as, following a 5-0 win over Czech Republic a few days before, England boasted maximum points and a goal difference of +9 after two matches. The two sides met with England at the top and they will more than likely walk off the Wembley pitch at full time with England still on top, and we think they will channel more of their 5-1 winning reverse to power away from their struggling opponents, and we are backing an England side that have scored 26 goals and won four of their six qualifying games by four goals or more, while they have scored four or more goals in their last three home games in the group. Montenegro meanwhile have conceded 15 goals in seven games whilst only scoring three times themselves, which all points to yet another big win for the Three Lions.

The second part of our bet sees us backing Harry Kane to keep on scoring the goals for England. Eight goals at an average of a goal every 65 minutes for the Tottenham man in qualifying is a superb tally, and he is edging ever-closer to the English record goalscorer mark held by Wayne Rooney. Kane himself is a supremely gifted goal scorer and he has been the focal point of England's attack for some time now as Southgate continues to aid his development. Sterling's rise to one of the best attacking talents in world football has helped to take some of the pressure off Kane whilst also giving him an able goal-scorer and assister out wide which has only helped Kane's own goal scoring ability, with the pair sharing a real link when going forward. With all of this in mind, we are backing Kane to get on the scoresheet in a comfortable England win. 

Bet of the Day: Friday, November 15

Back Denmark -4 to beat Gibraltar, win to nil & under 7 total goals in the match

The race to qualify for Euro 2020 from Group D looks set to go right down to the wire with just one point separating the top three teams heading into the penultimate round of fixtures. The Republic of Ireland are currently setting the pace on 12 points, but only goal difference is keeping them ahead of Denmark at this time and just one point is separating the ‘Boys in Green’ and third-place Switzerland heading into Friday night. Denmark and Switzerland both have a game in hand over the Irish though and they will take place on Friday night. If the Danes and the Swiss are victorious then it will be them who go into the final matchday in pole position in Group D, and luckily for both teams their latest matches are more than winnable.

Switzerland have a home game against Georgia for their final fixture, but the match I am focusing in on for my bet of the day is Denmark’s clash with Group D whipping boys Gibraltar.

Julio Cesar Ribas’ side are relative newcomers to the international stage so it is no real surprise that they are propping up a table that features four much more established neighbours. Gibraltar are yet to pick up a point in any of their six Euro 2020 qualifiers and they have managed to find the back of the net on only two occasions so far, shipping 19 goals at the other end. In fairness to them they have not really been shamed and you could hand them credit for the way they made Ireland earn three points in both of their group stage meetings, but ultimately they are still very much out of their depth, especially against sides of the calibre of Switzerland and Denmark.

The Swiss stuck four past them without reply in September, just days after the Danes rocked up in Gibraltar and rattled in six in a dominant victory, so how can we expect anything other than a convincing win for Denmark? A victory that would put them top of the table and set them up nicely for that huge final-day showdown with Ireland on Monday! It is not a case of will they win, more how will they win? And of course, it is a case of ‘how do we back an overwhelming favourite like Denmark and still make a healthy profit?’ I believe I have the answer.

Bookmaker bet365 continues to give punters the chance to make the most of the ‘Bet Builder’ feature that allows you to piece together markets in one single bet. This has brought success to us repeatedly this season and I believe it will provide our readers with another winning bet on Friday night should you back it.

It goes without saying that we expect Denmark to run riot in this one and having seen them stick six past Gibraltar several weeks ago I am confident that they will overcome a four-goal handicap on their way to victory here. I am not convinced that we will see more than six goals though – only two of Gibraltar’s last 30 fixtures have produced seven goals or more! The final leg of the bet is, of course, to back Denmark to win to nil. Gibraltar have managed just two goals so far in qualifying and both of them came in the home loss to Georgia. Prior to that their last goal against truly notable opposition came back in September 2015 when they netted in an 8-1 thrashing in Poland, so you have to believe they will draw a blank against the Danes.

Bet of the Day: Saturday, November 16

Back Netherlands to beat Northern Ireland & both teams to score

The ‘Michael O’Neill Era’ for Northern Ireland is almost over, but could the departing manager make the perfect exit by guiding his team to next summer’s European Championship?
O’Neill has enjoyed a highly successful eight-year reign at Windsor Park, leading Northern Ireland to Euro 2016 before getting them to within touching distance of the World Cup two years later, but that success was always going to earn him plenty of suitors and for the past couple of years it has felt like it was almost a matter of time before he would move on. That time is now coming after he put pen-to-paper on a deal to become the new manager of Championship strugglers Stoke City, but the 50-year-old’s new employers have afforded him one last stand as Northern Ireland boss. O’Neill will remain in charge of the national team for their final two Euro 2020 qualifying fixtures as well as any potential play-off tie, so can he bow out with a bang?

Northern Ireland go into their final group qualifier just three points behind both the Netherlands and Germany, and that means their qualifying fate is firmly in their own hands. Win their final two fixtures and there is a good chance that they will qualify automatically for the 2020 European Championship in blockbuster fashion – the problem is they could have asked to have two tougher fixtures to have in their run-in. Northern Ireland wrap things up when they visit Germany next Tuesday, but before that there is the small matter of hosting a resurgent Netherlands team who appear to have finally dragged the national team out of the hell it has experienced over the past few years. So, can Northern Ireland bring the Dutch back down to Earth, or will the visitors leave their hosts facing up to a two-legged play-off tie next March?

Northern Ireland’s campaign started perfectly as they won their first four fixtures to put themselves in the hunt, but in many ways it put them in a false position because their qualifying campaign had to end with back-to-back double-headers against the big two – the Netherlands and Germany. Therefore it was no surprise when their momentum stalled in with a 2-0 home defeat to the Germans followed by a 3-1 loss in Amsterdam, and I do not see them avoiding a third straight defeat when they welcome the Netherlands to Windsor Park on Saturday night.

The Dutch have endured one of the darkest spells in the history of the national team in recent years, failing to make the last few international tournaments while being gripped by a post-World Cup 2014 hangover, but they came roaring back to life to make it to the finals of this year’s UEFA Nations League and they have now won four straight qualifiers to claim top spot in Group C of Euro 2020 qualifying. Momentum is firmly on their side and they should ride it to victory here, but I do like the chances of Northern Ireland giving their fans something to cheer in a losing effort. Despite their upturn in fortunes over the past year or so the Netherlands continue to concede pretty routinely, while Northern Ireland have failed to score in just one of their last nine games and have drawn a blank at home on just two occasions since a 3-0 reverse against Croatia back in November 2016.

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.
