Best Bet Soccer Strategic Betting Selections – 30 May 2015

FB-profile-picThe end of the main northern hemisphere soccer season may seem to be an unlikely time to launch the Best Bet Soccer new Strategic Betting Service but, we thought, it’s ready to go, so why not?

Today is a particularly difficult day with cup finals in England, Germany, Spain France and Scotland. We’re therefore looking further afield.

In the Turkish Super League there are what we consider to be two must win matches.

If Bursaspor (2/5, home to Torku Konyaspor) don’t take maximum points they stand no chance of making the final Europa League qualification spot, but assuming that they win, given their superior goal difference a draw will not be good enough for Istanbul Baseksehir (8/15, away to Mersin Idman Yurdu)to hold on to that place. The result doesn’t mean much to either opponent so we take both Bursaspor and Istanbul to win. Both kick off at 5.00 p.m. UK time.

In the final round of matches in the Russian Premier League (all kick offs at 11.30 a.m. UK time) CSKA Moscow and FC Krasnodar are level on 59 points, both looking at the Champions League qualification spot with a Europa League qualification place as the consolation. Krasnodar are away to Dinamo Moscow who themselves need a point to clinch a Europa League qualification place ahead of Rubin Kazan, who who have a tough match away to lowly FC Ufa who need a point to be reasonably assured of survival. Although CSKA (6/10) also have a tough match away to FK Rostov, fighting for survival via the playoffs, we take them, CSKA, to win today.

Also in Russia, a win could well see Torpedo Moscow out of an automatic relegation spot and into the playoffs – and possibly safe if all results go there. They are 2/5 at home to Modovia Saransk. Although the latter are 7  league positions and 12 points superior we really can’t rate the sides that much differently. With Torpedo’s Premier League career resting on this and with Moldovia having nothing to play for  possibly we have no hesitation in adding Torpedo to the list.

Looking at the Betfair Sportsbook our selections – CSKA Moscow, Torpedo Moscow, Bursaspor and Istanbul Baseksehir – produce odds of 3.8/1 for the accumulator. We’re going for the 10% (of our betting bank) maximum stake.

Good luck…
