There is plenty of football to bet on this Tuesday night with the return of the Champions League complimented by action from the football league in England and the ValueChecker Value Bets and ValueChecker Steamers show that there are plenty of great bets to be had tonight.
The ValueChecker Value Bets are highlighted by ValueChecker based on a statistical analysis of previous results and it seems as far as Tuesday night is concerned the biggest discrepancy could come in the Champions League match between Lyon and surprise package of the season in that competition APOEL Nicosia. The Cypriots are 10.00 to win this match but ValueChecker thinks that the price on the away side should be more like 2.63. APOEL Nicosia have already pulled off many shocks this season, can they produce another?
In the Championship the best value could lie with Burnley according to ValueChecker in their home match against Barnsley. The current odds available on Burnley are 1.9 but Valuechecker has assigned this game a value rating of 0.34 because of the suggestion that Burnley should actually be closer to the 1.77 mark. Dropping down a division it could be worth taking note of in form Stevenage at Sheffield Wednesday, in this match ValueChecker thinks that Stevenage should be less than half the price they are now. At the time of writing Stevenage are 4.2 for this away match but ValueChecker has their true odds at 1.91. There are more price discrepancies in League Two with ValueChecker picking out Hereford to win at Aldershot. This is a similar situation with Stevenage, the away side are 4.42 in this match and ValueChecker thinks a price closer to 2.2 would have been the correct call from the odds compilers.
So are any of these ValueChecker Value Bets reflected in the ValueChecker Steamers The ValueChecker Steamers show what the most popular bets are by highlighting what odds the bookies have been shortening recently. In a couple of European steamers, there has been an average change of odds 4.7% in the game between Zenit St Petersburg and Benfica on under 2.5 goals, that pick has been cut from 1.62 to 1.59. Meanwhile in the Europa League there has been an average change in odds of 9.8% with Hannover or Draw being backed in the double chance betting against Club Brugge, that has shortened from 1.14 to 1.13. The ante post markets have also shown some steamers, Bolton have been shortened for relegation from the Premiership from 1.81 to 1.72 and that represents an average drop in odds of 10.7%.
The ValueChecker Wikis should also provide some profitable pointers this week, one of the more popular games on ValueChecker today has been Birmingham v Hull and the Birmingham ValueChecker wikis highlight one potential strong in play bet. Birmingham are one of the worst teams for conceding just after half time, last season almost a third of Birmingham's goals conceded were let in in the fifteen minute period following half time. That is a remarkable stat and if this game is close it could be worth backing Hull at half time as those odds could shorten dramtically in the next fifteen minutes following the placement of that bet.
