SportPesa Mega Jackpot December 23, 2017
Here is this weekend’s SportPesa mega jackpot bet slip.
STOKE CITY v WEST BROMWICH
With no win in 16 PL games, this could surely be WBA’s weekend to secure an elusive win for the first time in 4 months. However, Stoke’s Xherdan Shaqiri is the most likely source of goals for the hosts and could trouble the leaky Bromwich defense. Provided the visitors maintain their calm and avoid red cards, the teams are likely to share points or WBA earn all the 3.
Pick: West Brom or Draw
WEST HAM v NEWCASTLE
Although Moyes seems to have cracked the code for positive results at West Ham, his experienced counterpart manager could outwit him in this fixture. The last 2 meetings between these teams in the PL has seen Newcastle collect 2 wins. We expect the trend to continue this evening.
Pick: Newcastle or Draw
SWANSEA v CRYSTAL PALACE
Crystal Palace is a rejuvenated team based on its recent results compared to their first games of the season. However, the visitors go to this match without some notable players. Swansea’s board fired its manager during the week could revitalize the team. If that will be the case, the hosts will give Palace a run for their money.
Pick: Swansea or Crystal Palace
SHEFFIELD WED v MIDDLESBROUGH
The visitors have won the last 3 encounters against the hosts in all competitions and are like to continue their dominance.
SHREWSBURY v PORTSMOUTH
The last time Portsmouth won a game against Shrewsbury was in October 2012. That statistic makes the hosts the favorite to win this match. You could also consider betting on a draw though.
Pick: Shrewsbury or Draw
BRIGHTON v WATFORD
A notable number of matches between these teams ended in draws. Both teams are out to look for precious points to avoid a slip further down the table. Marco Silva (Watford) PL experience can play a big role in this game but his team will miss important players like Doucoure.
Pick: Draw or Watford
PLYMOUTH v OLDHAM
Plymouth goes into this game as the side in more need of the points than Oldham. At the same time, the host’s recent wins have been over teams above them in the table.
Pick: Plymouth or Oldham
AFC WIMBLEDON v BRADFORD CITY
Bradford had a double over Wimbledon in League One last season. At the same time, the visitors sit in position 4 while Wimbledon is only above one team in the table.
Pick: Bradford or Draw
CREWE v SWINDON TOWN
Having lost 3 games on the bounce, Swindon will look to stop that trend. In terms of H2H, Swindon is better than their hosts.
Pick: Swindon or Draw
BARNET v CHELTENHAM
With 2 wins in its last 4 matches, Barnet form seems to be picking up. Choosing a winner in this match needs a toss of the coin. It could go either way but we pick the hosts as the favorites.
ST JOHNSTONE v HEARTS
After halting Celtic’s unbeaten run last weekend, Hearts go into this game with high confidence. As such, the visitors are likely to record a positive result.
Pick: Hearts or Draw
PARTICK THISLE v HAMILTON
In the last 10 meetings between the two, Partick has picked 2 wins while the rest of the matches ended in draws. If you are to go with the trend, then this match is destined for a draw with a slight chance of Patrick taking advantage of home soil.
Pick: Draw or Partick
GIMNASTIC TARRAGONA v HUESCA
Huesca has lost only once in 10 games. On the other hand, the hosts have recorded 5 losses in that period. Since Gimnastic will try to avoid a slip into the relegation zone, it could force a draw.
Pick: Huesca or Draw
MOUSCRON PERUWELZ v ZULTE WAREGEM
Both teams are struggling. As such, we go back to their past meetings where the visitors have dominated.
AC MILAN v ATALANTA
Tactically, Atalanta is the better side. In addition, the hosts have struggled to beat Atalanta in recent meetings.
Pick: Atalanta or Draw
DEPORTIVO LA CORUNA v CELTA VIGO
Celta had recorded an impressive draw against Barcelona a couple of weeks ago but have since lost twice. If the visitors can find that form, this game will be theirs to lose.
EXCELSIOR v TWENTE
These are two inconsistent teams in the Netherland’s league. This tie could go either way.
