Football Betting Tips

The 2013 Africa Cup of Nations gets underway this weekend, with the continent’s contenders fighting it out for the title of Africa’s best.

We preview the Afcon opener between Bafana Bafana and Cape Verde, being played at the National Stadium in Soweto. Will South Africa win in front of their home crowd? Who is your money on?

 

In England we preview a number of high profile English Premier League fixtures, as well as the tie between Leicester City and Middlesbrough.

 

Liverpool take on Norwich City, while Tottenham Hotspur host Manchester United. In London, Chelsea and Arsenal go head-to-head. Who will win?

 

If you are a betting person, here are tips ahead of the weekend action brought to you by Soccer 6 and guest predictor, SuperSport United coach, Gavin Hunt.

 

For more info on these and other fixtures, go to the Soccer 6 website here or the Soccer 6 mobi-site here!

 

LEICESTER CITY V MIDDLESBROUGH 

League position: Leicester 3rd and Middlesbrough 5th 

Useful facts: High scoring Leicester will welcome the visit of a seemingly faltering Middelsbrough outfit. Boro have lost two of their last five matches played and have fallen behind in the Championship title race. This means the Foxes will be slight favourites at the King Power Stadium. 

Gavin Hunt: Leicester home win. 

 

LIVERPOOL V NORWICH CITY

League position: Liverpool 8th and City 12th 

Useful facts: Liverpool’s defeat to Manchester United means Brendan Rodgers’ men are yet to beat a top five side in England. Despite this, the Reds should be favourites against a Norwich side which have lost four of their last five matches played. 

Gavin Hunt: I’ll go for a Liverpool win. 

 

SOUTH AFRICA V CAPE VERDE

Fifa ranking: South Africa 87th and Cape Verde 69th 

Useful facts: In a game which may have massive consequences for Bafana Bafana’s hopes of going deep in the Afcon, Gordon Igesund’s team pit their strengths against a plucky Cape Verde side. 

Gavin Hunt: Ha, ha! I’d better say the right thing. Win for Bafana. 

 

CHELSEA V ARSENAL

League position: Chelsea 3rd and Arsenal 6th 

Useful facts: Chelsea are a side packed with some world-class talent and potential. With Demba Ba’s arrival, they’ve now added another deadly striker to their mix. Arsenal will have to display a much better performance than they gave in their recent defeat at home to Manchester City. 

Gavin Hunt: Chelsea win. 

 

TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR V MANCHESTER UNITED

League position: Spurs 4th and United 1st 

Useful facts: In what could be the game of the day in England, Spurs’ recent impressive run of form will be seriously challenged when Manchester United roll into town. Alex Ferguson’s men are cleaning up all comers in the English Premiership this season. 

Gavin Hunt: Spurs win at White Hart Lane. United’s back four is seriously dodgy.
