Basket, Finland, UU-Korihait Uusikaupunki – Nilan Bisons 

pick: Nilan -21,5 link 

– first game was +45 for away team

– worst team vs best (3 teams on bottom)

– UU-Korihat left tree best players, americans and playing with their players

– UU-Korihat have one injured player also

Italy » Serie B » Ternana – Pro Vercelli 1 @ 1,85 bet365

 

I belive odds will drop. Both are in bad form but hosts have more quality and playing hme. Ternan will be without Fabio Pisacane (df 7/0), Biagio Meccariello (df 6/0), Massimo Gotti (mf 1/0). Also Guido di Deo (mf 10/0). I would said not so important players (wasnt played on last few games, long term injured). Only new blow is striker Angelo Raffaele Nolè (19/4). They are working to bring some famous names (Gianluca Zambrotta, Simone Barone, Daniele Ficagna)

On the other side Pro Vercelli in big problems. Form is awfull, loose last two games agains directly opponents for relegation. They are in bad position, just is Grosseto under them on table. Also coach will have much problems for this game:
suspended are Simone Sini (df 11/0), Alessandro Ranellucci (df 18/0) and Andrea Rosso (mf 8/0; injured are Gabriel Pires (mf 12/1), Massimiliano Scaglia (df 16/2), Alberto Masi (df 13/1), Gianni Fabiano (att 14/2); doubtfull are Alessio Innocenti, Stefano Murante, Matteo Di Piazza (att 10/1)

I pick home win becausee of so much away problems

Port Vale – AFC Wimbledon  1 @ 1,75

Quality on home side, home fiels..True, both are not in form but must adddmit Port Vale had strong opponents. Maybe because of form odds little raise, i dont see other reason. Vale is fighting for title and promotion, they have more than double points more than AFC, solid at home, have best league attack (Wimbledon is second worst defence) and now when is Myrie-Williams (mf 21/5) back – squad is full. On the other side AFc miss reevers (mf 5/0), Prior and Moore (mf 12/3) for some time and now is Fenlon (df 14/1) suspended. Two more players are injured, Strutton (10/0) and topscorer Harrison (att 19/7) and seems they will not be readdy.
Midfielder Steven Gregory (15/0) has gone back to Bournemouth after his three-month loan spell expired following last week’s defeat by Rotherham, and full-back Jim Fenlon is suspended for collecting five yellow cards.But Ardley could add Brendan Kiernan and Rashid Yussuff to his squad after lengthy spells out.
Forward Kiernan (mf 3/) has not played since September due to an ankle injury and midfielder Yussuff mf 13/2has been out for a month with a hip infection, but both came through a reserve game in midweek to prove their fitness.
On-loan West Ham striker Paul McCallum (att 1/0) also returns after completing a three-match ban.

Inter’s Injury List Worries Stramaccioni 

Inter coach Andrea Stramaccioni has a couple of injury problems to deal with going into Saturday’s game againstGenoa.
In an interview with Mediaset, Stramaccioni said: “It will be an important match but unfortunately, we’re not in great shape.

“We lost Yuto Nagatomo and Luca Castellazzi in the Coppa Italia game against Verona, and there are a few other injuries.

“Should Fredy Guarin’s suspension be upheld then we’d be a bit short in midfield too seeing that Esteban Cambiasso isn’t fit either.”

Inter currently sit in second place in Seria A, seven points away from league leaders Juventus.

Since beating Juventus at the beginning of November, Inter have only won three times in Serie A.

Inter will be looking for a win on Saturday night, which will see them end the year in second place.

Vukovar – Rijeka 2 @ 2,1 bwin 1-3

vukovar was with just 6 players before few days in osijek, not have roster, 52-old men playing..

St Johnstone – Hearts

St Johnstone boss Steve Lomas will ask David McCracken if he is ready to return early from his fractured cheekbone against Hearts as Saints face an injury crisis in defence.

Defenders Steven Anderson, Frazer Wright and skipper Dave Mackay are out suspended while midfielder Chris Millar is also banned after being red carded in the 1-1 draw against St Mirren last week.

McCracken had to have surgery after picking up the injury when he clashed heads with Celtic midfielder Victor Wanyama during the 1-1 draw at Parkhead on November 11. Craig Beattie, Jamie Adams and David Robertson are all injured.

Hearts midfielder Scott Robinson is unlikely to travel St Johnstone and faces a meeting over his future on Monday after his refusal to participate against Aberdeen.

Medhi Taouil (groin) is out of the trip to Perth, joining Danny Grainger (knee), Jason Holt (ankle) and Jamie Hamill (knee) in being absent.

Arvydas Novikovas (ankle) could return after missing the Dons win, Dylan McGowan is available again following a hip problem, while Ryan Stevenson is fit after coming off at half-time against Aberdeen following a head knock.

Chernomorets Burgas – Lok. Sofia

SOFIA (Reuters) – Police arrested six players from Bulgarian first division club Chernomorets Burgas and five from their city rivals Neftochimik on Thursday for questioning in an investigation into alleged match-fixing.

“I can confirm that 11 players were arrested for match-fixing,” a spokeswoman for the interior ministry said. “All of them are Bulgarians.”

She said that the initial investigation was triggered two months ago by signals of illegal betting but refused to reveal more details.

Local media reported that Chernomorets’s Rumen Trifonov and his team mate Preslav Yordanov were taken in handcuffs from the police station in Burgas and driven to an undisclosed destination.

Interior Minister Tsvetan Tsvetanov said that four of the footballers would probably be charged.

“Our coach Dimitar Dimitrov told me that a few players had been arrested,” Chernomorets owner Mitko Sabev said. “We’re sure that they didn’t manipulate Chernomorets games.”

Neftochimik coach Dimcho Nenov said he was not aware that any players had been questioned and confirmed that all players took part in Thursday’s training session.

Chernomorets are sixth in the Bulgarian league with 27 points from 15 games. Neftochimik are top in the second division with 28 points from 13 matches.

Media reports of widespread match-fixing and corruption have been rife in the Balkan county for years but no one has been brought to trial and the European Commission has criticised the authorities for doing little to fight the problem.

In September, Bulgaria’s prosecutor opened an investigation into claims of match-fixing in four domestic games this season.

The first documented manipulated game in Bulgaria took place in 1949, when Levski Sofia and city neighbours Akademik drew 1-1 in order that CSKA, Levski’s bitter rivals, would be relegated to the second division.

Cro, Rijeka- Slaven Belupo  1 @ 1,73

As i writing from beggining of season, Rijeka (with Split) is for me main candidate for 2nd place. Financial stabile club, they bring lot good players but diodnt have resaults on beggining. Of course, when you have lot new players, it need time. They are always good at home and in last round they will have lot fans, program for fans, coach Scoria will have 100th game for Rijeka..
Culina (15/1) is back after injury and Kreilach (mf 16/3) after suspendion while Knezevic (df 18/0) get red card.

Slaven is tipicly home team manny years. For this game coach Ferencina has mising problems, 7 players are out: Suspended are Grgić (df 17/1) i Geng (df 7/0) and injured Rak (mf 10/0), Batarelo (mf 12/1), Vugrinec (att 12/8, main player, topscorer, legend of cro football, league topscorer of all time), Kokalovic (df 16/0) and Gregurina (mf 14/1)

Big bet on Rijeka

Croatia, Lokomotiva Zagreb – Cibalia 2 @ 7,31 pinancle

Lokomotiva  vs   Cibalia

If we look quality, then bets on this should be on home team. They are most talented team, Dinamo II, playing good…

Cibalia loose some important players this year, now they have young team (main players Bartolovic and Vitaic older) and they are in dangerous zone. With all problems they are playing very well in domestic cup.

But i dont wanna bet on this game because lokomotiva is better team or because Cibalia can do something and they are doing well in cup – this pick on Cibalia i bet because of some other rerasons.

As you know, Lokomotiva is 2nd club of Dinamo. That knows all of you probably, that knows 4 million people in Croatia, that know even Uefa but there is not even one single paper that Mamic has something with them. He just sends Dinamo’s players on loan there. He also take their coach, lokomotiva play their games on Maksimir..Manny people dont like this, that’s one of reason why BBB dont like Mamic and dont wanna go to Dinamo’s games..

When new government come, main target of sport minister was to clear Cro football and remove Mamic. He is fighting but still there is nothing. He is telling every day he will do anything to remove main criminal, main mafia boss from football (mamic is main in football, owns two clubs, put his people in association, he decide which referees will be, even decide who will be President of National Football Association and National Team Coach).

As Minister, same is doing Uefa. They are talkning abouth criminal moves in our football, abouth hooliganism..And they give ultimatum..Few days ago Platini was in Zagreb and made sharply speach abouth all it…

All i wanna said, Mamic can do whatever he wants. Lokmotiva can won this because of their quality, and they can if Mamic wants that. But i belive after all this threats, specially last he cannot allow lokomotiva to finish on Europan place and come in Europa. Than he woild have two clubs in Europa, i belive they already investigate him and i belive Lokomotiva will start droping on table..

Also he buyed few days ago (for Dinamo, not for Lokomotiva) young talent, wounderking from Cibalia (16 years old) so Cibalia players finaly get their saleries..

Decide alone what is best, but i thing it worth to try bett on Cibalia. If you dont belive, imo is better not to bet than on home win with this odds..
