    My Soccer Selections 2012

    Hello everyone. I will be tracking my soccer picks in this thread. My bets are between 1 - 3 units typically. I mostly follow La Liga, EPL, Champ's League, and occasionally some others.

    For tomorrow I will go with the following:

    La Liga: Rayo Vallecano / Real Madrid Over 3 goals (-130) [2 units]
    La Liga: ATL Madrid / Barcelona Over 3 goals (EV) [2 units]

    Real Madrid doesn't always concede goals, but they are playing a team in Rayo Vallecano that has found the back of the net in all but 6 of their 23 matches this season. In addition, I fancy Real Madrid to score at least 2 or 3 goals themselves coming off their late goal conceded in the 1-1 draw of Champions League. RM always plays strong coming off a disappointment of any kind. They are also leading La Liga by a decent margin, and should display some good attacking football, but probably with a few defensive mistakes.

    ATL Madrid has played very well recently, having won 3 and drawn 4 of their last 7 matches with no losses. They have only conceded 1 goal in the past 7 matches as well! However, now they are facing a hungry and motivated Barcelona team, who is 10 points now behind Real Madrid in first place. The history between these two teams has almost always produced goals in recent years, so I think the time is perfect to take the risk at nice odds.

    Good luck to everyone with your plays, whatever they may be

    I have also decided to add the following. The match starts in about 10 mins:

    Porto / Feirense
    Over 3 goals (-135) [1 unit]

    These guys played to a 0-0 draw last time, but that was a road match for Porto. I fancy a comfortable victory today for Porto, 3-1 maybe. Good luck all

    OK, I apologize for the very poor start here. 2 losses and a push is not what I had hoped for. So my record is currently 0-2-1 (-3.95 units). Here are a few plays I feel strongly about for today:

    German 2: Alemannia Aachen / Fortuna Dusseldorf -1 (-135) [3 units]
    Portugal: Vitoria Guimaraes / Sporting Braga -1 (EV) [3 units]

    Dusseldorf is a very strong home team, and has only struggled a bit in recent matches. They have been playing well and just been a bit unlucky, and should rebound today at home. Alemannia Aachen will be trying to play tight defense, but they will probably not succeed. The result should end 2-0 or better for Dusseldorf.

    Also not much to say about Sporting Braga. They are a beast at home, having not lost there yet this season in the league and with only one draw also. The last time they played here was in Europa League, and they lost 2-0 to Besiktas. They should rebound strongly here and get the win at the very least.

    Good luck all

    The record now stands at 1-3-1 (-5.00 units).

    For today I like the following:

    England 2: Burton Albion / Swindon Town -1 (-152) [3 units]
    England 2: Burton Albion / Swindon Town Over 2.5 / 3 goals (-118) [2 units]
    International Friendly: Brazil / Bosnia Over 2.5 goals (-124) [2 units]

    I'm expecting a reasonable win here for Swindon Town. They played Burton Albion on the road back at the start of the season and lost 0-2, but there is no doubt now who is the better team. Swindon Town is leading the table currently and has been scoring well at home, while keeping many clean sheets also. However, Burton Albion is a higher scoring attack-minded team, so they could find a goal here, but their weak defense should leave plenty of opportunities for the home team to get a comfortable win. 3-0 or 3-1 is what I'm expecting.

    Bosnia should be fielding a pretty offensive line-up today, and will be taking the game pretty seriously, as will Brazil. I could easily see this ending 2-1, because I think Bosnia may score here and Brazil should net 2 or 3 goals.

    Good luck all

    Record: 3-4-1 (-2.36 units)

    International Friendly: Congo / Egypt (-133) [3 units]
    International Friendly: Congo / Egypt Over 2.5 (-106) [2 units]

    Egypt should win this one with no problem. They will take the match seriously and are the superior side, and also very strong at home. They should score at least 2-3 goals themselves.

    Good luck all
