Like a football club surfacing after a dead spell brought-upon by 250,000 college football predictions spring Champions League fatigue, your humble WagerBop pundit won his marquee Monday EPL bet and is eager to tackle a new week of odds. But I also made a faux pas in my general soccer betting tip for Matchday 9, carrying-on about the fabled “52.4%” mark on 50/50 lines – a … [Read more...] about Matchday 10 Betting Tips: Liverpool Owns EPL Table…But Not the O/U Line
Now we’re talkin’. WagerBop – or myself, personally – had a lousy week making English football predictions prior to the 6th round of Premier League fixtures. Moneylines might be 3-ways and goal spreads push too often to shoot for 60% accuracy, but punters still rightfully expect at least 6+ prevailing picks or maybe 3-5 bargain-priced jackpots out of 10 sets of markets. … [Read more...] about Liverpool vs Leicester City: Foxes a Sexy Moneyline Pick on Matchday 8

I’ve got to fess up – 2 major boners by WagerBop in the past week can be directly traced to my malfeasance. Baseball fans may have noticed our accurate-yet-misplaced “Chicago White Sox to win” pick at nearly 4-to-1 odds on Monday. The ChiSox did indeed score an upset. However, it was just a filing error – my real 4-to-1 pick was the Detroit Tigers, who lost by 1 … [Read more...] about Premier League Matchday 3 Odds and Preview: Can’t Forget Those Reds
In the first game of the English Premiership, Liverpool dismantled Norwich City with 4-1 and started their campaign in the best possible way.

Jurgen Klopp's boys won at Anfield tonight, resolving everything after just 45 minutes of play. The … [Read more...] about Liverpool Opens the Premier League Campaign With a Win Over Norwich City, 4-1
Sometimes you can practically hear a sports-media narrative buzzing in your ears before it arrives, like a noisy vehicle on a country road. There is already a tradition of English Premier League sides playing over their heads on the opening 5 to 10 Matchdays of any season. That’s what made Leicester City’s recent Cinderella run to the EPL title so surprising – not that Foxes … [Read more...] about 2019-20 Premier League Preview: Complete Vegas Odds and Predictions on Matchday 1
