Five Bets You Wish You Made at the Start of the Season

There’s some sports bets that even after a couple of months of the season give you that feeling of ‘well, that was obvious’ but at the start of the season didn’t seem so clear-cut.

1. Ronaldo to be La Liga top scorer: There were many reasons why you might not have backed CR7 to be top scorer in La Liga at the start of the season, could he maintain his super-human run of form? Would he remain injury free for another season? Would James Rodrigues and Javier Hernadez coming in and Di Maria leaving disrupt the flow of the team? But most of all would Messi and co simply out-score the man from Madeira? He’s answered all these questions emphatically with CR7 into double figures and Barca spreading their goals between Messi, Neymar and Suarez it looks certain Ronaldo will finish the season with the Golden Boot. Indonesia M88 spokesperson said “Cristiano Ronaldo is the best player in the world right now by a long way”.

2. Bayern to win the Bundesliga: There was doubt around Bayern at the start of the season after they lost key midfield playmaker, Toni Kroos to Real Madrid. Would the successful but draining World Cup campaign affect the stamina and desire of their Cup stars? There were questions around Pep Guardiola himself too, his obsessive tinkering sometimes left players unsure of their roles and could cause himself to burn-out. However after a quarter of the season there seems to be no sign of mental fatigue in Pep or physical fatigue in his charges, and with nearest rivals Dortmund imploding leaving them in the relegation zone it seems unthinkable that Bayern won’t be coronated champions in May.

3. Burnley to be relegated from the EPL: Sadly Burnley are floundering in the EPL, it looks like watching a long, slow car-crash as the Clarets stumble through the season. However before the season kicked off it was a different picture, Swansea provided a blue-print of how a hard-working team with great spirit and an young talented manager could thrive in the EPL. Unfortunately a lack of goals and too many errors at the back will cost them, proving just how hard it is to get the alchemy right to avoid the drop from the EPL as a promoted club.

4. Liverpool to finish outside the Top Four. The true-story baseball film Moneyball tells the tale of a team losing their star player to a bigger rival. They devise a theory to replace him not with one player but many smaller signings. They go on to have their best season in decades, including a record breaking 20 game winning streak. JW Henry adopted this theory for his Red Sox team and won the World Series, JW Henry now owns Liverpool FC. So it’s unsurprising to see the Moneyball approach used to invest the £70m windfall from the sale of Luis Suarez into several lesser talents. Unfortunately for Henry and Liverpool soccer is not baseball and Liverpool are missing Suarez…badly. Don’t expect them to qualify for the Champions League this year. Vietnam M88 spokesperson said “Last year was Liverpool’s year, which was clear to see from the amount of bets placed on them to win the league, it’s a completely different story this year.”

5. Pellegrini to get the boot at Man City: Okay, so this one hasn’t happened yet, but it will unless two major problems are addressed. Firstly, City have been a damp squib in the Champions League, in two previous seasons they haven’t qualified for the knock-out stages, and this season they are bottom of their group needing miracle from their two remaining games in order t o reach the second round. Secondly, they have gone backwards in the EPL. Only two players have improved on last year, Joe Hart and Sergio Augero. If it wasn’t for these two’s form at the back and up top Pellegrini might have gone already.

Manchester United will finish in top 4

Manchester United finished off the podium for the first time since 1991 under David Moyes last season but a good summer of spending and they will be competing for UEFA Champions League football again this season.

The Red Devils have already been successful in their pursuit of Southampton’s Luke Shaw and Ander Herrera from Athletic Bilbao. There biggest signing however has been manager Louis van Gaal.

Manchester United are now down to 6.6 third favourites to win the Premier League this season following their manager’s performances during the World Cup. They are 1.58 to finish in the top four with Betfair which suggests a general sense of confidence in the record English champions after a dismal 2013-14.

Dutch coach van Gaal has a track record of success – the four previous clubs he has been at he has won the league.

His first job came at Ajax in the early 1990s where he guided them to three league titles, the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Cup during his six years in charge. The Dutch club have not won another European honour since his departure in 1997.

Louis van Gaal’s time at Ajax saw him bring through the likes of future Dutch stars Edgar Davids, Frank and Ronald de Boer, Patrick Kluivert, Michael Reiziger, Clarence Seedorf and Edwin van der Sar from the youth academy.

Success at Ajax got Louis van Gaal the Barcelona job in 1997, taking over from Sir Bobby Robson. His time at Camp Nou was successful too – winning the league title in two of his three seasons, before leaving at the end of the 1999-2000 season after losing out on the league title to Deportivo de La Coruña.

This Barcelona team included the likes of Rivaldo, Winston Bogade, Michael Reiziger, Robert Prosinecki, Kluivert, the de Boers, Phillip Cocu and Jari Litmanen.

His first spell in charge of the Netherlands followed, but it would be a disastrous one. They failed to qualify for the 2002 World Cup in Japan and South Korea – the last time the Oranje have not qualified for a major tournament.

Barcelona would offer him a second spell following a stint in charge of the national team, but this time it was very unsuccessful. The Spanish giants were 15th when van Gaal departed in 2003.

After a short stint at Ajax as technical director, up-and-coming AZ Alkmaar appointed Louis van Gaal as their head coach in the summer of 2005. After back-to-back runners-up spots in the Eredivisie and an 11th place finish in this third season, van Gaal’s AZ surprised the nation by winning the league for the first time in 28 years, 11 points ahead of Steve McClaren’s FC Twente and with the best defence in the league.

Bayern Munich came calling at that point, making him their first foreign manager since 1998. The German giants had finished runners-up to VfL Wolfsburg the previous season, but with signings that included Mario Gómez, Arjen Robben, Ivica Olić and Anatoliy Tymoshchuk, Bayern would win the league during the Dutch head coach’s first season in charge.

They also reached the UEFA Champions League final that season, losing to José Mourinho’s Internazionale in the final. The following season was one big hangover for the club – a third place finish and van Gaal out of work.

The Netherlands offered van Gaal a second chance in the summer of 2012 after they’d lost all three games under Bert van Marwijk.

In two years, van Gaal put together a young squad with experienced players going forward – Robin van Persie, Arjen Robben and Wesley Sneijder. They thrashed Spain 5-1 to open their 2014 World Cup, before beating Australia, Chile and Mexico to reach the quarter-finals. They did everything but score versus Costa Rica in their quarter-final penalty shootout win but were undone by Argentina in the semi-finals as they only mustered one attempt on target in two ours.

The country came back home in third place to a hero’s welcome. Louis van Gaal had already agreed to join Manchester United before the tournament.

What we saw from the Netherlands during this summer’s World Cup were a number of different formations and players playing in different formations under van Gaal. His flexible approach suggests that if he has the right players at Old Trafford, he’ll be capable of great things.

Manchester United have been linked to a number of stars and one would think signing a couple of them will put van Gaal in a great position to get back into the top four and Champions League football the following season.

Free Online Slots - Who Needs Las Vegas?

Until fairly recently, there was no such thing as a free slot machine and the only place you could play the slots was in a casino or amusement arcade. Most people have played a this game at some time or other in their lives and it is great fun. Since their invention, the machines and games have become much more sophisticated.

What is a slot machine?
The traditional game is played by putting a coin into the machine through the “slot”. The machine has three reels or more, which the player then operates by pulling the lever down and releasing. This causes the reels to spin independently and the name of the game is to get the symbols on each reel to match. The symbols can have various images, such as diamonds, bells or hearts. Other slot machines have a video screen, which is activated by a touch screen rather than a lever.

The websites are bright and colorful with enticing graphics, designed to attract you to each game and with the ultimate aim of taking money from you.

The sites also try to tempt you into joining by offering a welcome bonus of up to $600 or more.

Play with others
An advantage of playing online slots for free is that you can often play against others online, which can be fun and helps to make the games more exciting.
