Today's Soccer Selections

Casemiro to be carded Liverpool vs. Real Madrid - Champions League Final 3/1
Real Madrid to win, Benzema to score, Courtois to be carded Liverpool vs. Real Madrid - Champions League Final 55/1
BTTS - No and under 2.5 goals Nottingham Forest vs. Huddersfield - Championship Playoff Final 1/1
Selection 1 - Casemiro to be carded
Liverpool vs. Real Madrid - Champions League Final, 20:00 (Saturday) - UK Time
Current Best Price 3/1 | 4.00 | +300

Real Madrid come into the Champions League final in an unfamiliar position for a major final – as the underdogs. They have somehow engineered remarkable fightbacks in the round of 16, quarter-final and semi-final to reach the final this year, but will Liverpool be one step too far? In each of the last five games Real have played in Europe, both teams to score has hit. The same has happened in three of Liverpool’s last four in Europe, so that looks a good bet again.

To go along with this, we are picking a player who shouldn’t really be playing in the final. Casemiro could easily have been sent off multiple times in the semi-final second leg against Manchester City. If he had been, we likely would be looking at a very different final. Casemiro has been booked 14 times in 42 appearances in La Liga and the Champions League this season. To say it’s not a stretch to imagine him being booked quite early on would be an understatement. A double of both teams to score and Casemiro to be booked is a steal at 3/1.

Selection 2 - Real Madrid to win, Benzema to score, Courtois to be carded
Liverpool vs. Real Madrid - Champions League Final, 20:00 (Saturday) - UK Time
Current Best Price 55/1 | 56.0 | +5500

We're in for a massive treat on Saturday when Liverpool and Real Madrid face off in the Champions League Final. The teams have had very different preps for the game. Liverpool have had high intensity games week in, week out and were just pipped in the Premier League title race. Real Madrid, on the other hand, have had weeks to get rested having wrapped up La Liga a few weeks ago.

That rest could be the difference. Karim Benzema has been red hot this season and if Real are to win, it's more than likely it's on the back of him scoring. Goalkeepers getting booked for timewasting is an angle we like. If it's tight and Real are winning as we expect, Courtois could easily find his way into the referee's book, just like Rui Patricio for Roma in the Conference League Final. A Bet Builder of Benzema to score, Courtois to be booked and Real Madrid to win is 55/1.

Selection 3 - BTTS - No and under 2.5 goals
Nottingham Forest vs. Huddersfield - Championship Playoff Final, 16:30 (Sunday) - UK Time
Current Best Price 1/1 | 2.00 | +100

The richest game of football is upon us once again as Nottingham Forest and Huddersfield battle it out for the final place in next season’s Premier League. We’ve analysed all the Championship Playoff Finals this century to see what trends have developed. 

The bet that stands out the most is how few times ‘both teams to score’ has landed. Of the 22 games played since and including 2000, both teams to score has been a winning bet just five times and nine of the last 10 deciders have either been won to nil or finished goalless inside 90 minutes. 

The first goal is important in any game of football, but perhaps even more so in the Championship Playoff Final with experts saying victory in the game can bring a club revenue in the region of around £190m. The team who has opened the scoring has won promotion in nine of the last 11 seasons. 

It might be too much to expect a goal to be scored in each half as this has only happened in five of the previous 22 deciders. With so much at stake for both teams, the bet we are opting for is BTTS - no and under 2.5 goals which has been a winning bet in each of the last four meetings between these two sides.
