RFN Betting Advice Week 16

Andrew Flint (@AndrewMijFlint): Bet One: €5 Ural - Rostov: Half Time correct Score 0-0 @ 2.20 at bet365 Ural have had a fairly dire run of form, failing to win in their last seven league games and scoring a measly five goals in that run, but the numbers don’t tell the full story. The three consecutive home defeats came against three of the current top five teams, and despite this they have managed to grind out three draws on the road. A couple of particularly telling statistics involve … [Read more...]

Betting Advice for RFPL Week 15

Thomas Giles (@Thomas_Giles_UK): Bet One: €10 Amkar - Arsenal: Amkar to win @2.38 at Bet365 Amkar had an excellent start to the season but have now taken a bit of a downturn with just one win in seven matches. Gadzhi Gadzhiyev's side though have an excellent record at home and indeed have not even conceded a goal at the Stadion Zvezda this season. Arsenal Tula are pretty lucky to not be propping up the league as they have both the worst attacking (5 goals scored) and joint-worst … [Read more...]

Betting Advice for RFPL Week 14

After the national team break, the RFPL is finally back, and our betting advice return as usual. As always, our tipsters receive €20 each to place on any bets they want. Ben Clark (@Dinoben_): Bet One: €5 Arsenal - CSKA: Draw @3.5 at Bet365 The last time I did these betting predictions, I stated how CSKA had run out of steam and were limping their way towards the winter break. Looking on the results which have occurred since then, limping might seem a little kind. A draw for this … [Read more...]

Betting Advice for RFPL Week 13

Andrew Flint (@AndrewMijFlint): Bet One: €5 Lokomotiv - Anzhi: Anzhi to win with +1 handicap @1.68 at bet365 Lokomotiv are a side bereft of imagination going forward and offer very little serious threat other than to weak sides with problems of their own. Granted, their defensive record is impressive at home with just four goals conceded, but Petar Skuletic, Igor Portnyagin and Ezekiel Henty are hardly the most fearsome strikeforce in the Premier League, and they aren’t even guaranteed a … [Read more...]

Betting Advice for RFPL Week 12

Thomas Giles (@Thomas_Giles_UK): Bet One: €10 Amkar - Rostov: Under 2.5 goals @1.36 at Bet365 Any early season hopes of a title run-in for these two sides has now disappeared with both of them languishing eight points off top spot. However, there is no reason that, thanks to their consistency, they will not challenge for the European spots come the end of the season. Amkar and Rostov are the finest examples in the Russian Premier League of conservative football working. Neither side … [Read more...]

Betting Advice for RFPL Week 11

David Sansun (@RFN_David): Bet One: €10 Zenit – Orenburgt: Zenit to score over 3.5 goals @3.75 at Bet355 Zenit are the team to beat this season, and at home, to newly promoted and lowly Orenburg, we could see a goalfest. Although Zenit have come back from a trip to Ireland, and Orenburg got their first league win last weekend, I can’t see anything but an Zenit win, especially with the form of Giuliano. Bet Two: €5 Krasnodar vs Amkar: Amkar to win and under 2.5 goals @11 at Bet365 Amkar … [Read more...]

RFPL Week 10: Betting Advice

Bet One: €CSKA - Ufa: HT/FT Draw/CSKA @3.5 at Bet365 The spectacular Arena CSKA is finally open for business - good news for a stadium that apparently will enter the record books as having the most office space in world football - after many months of delays to the grand opening. The first match against Terek couldn’t have gone much better, with Lacina Traore finally opening his account with a well-taken double to inspire their biggest winning margin of the season in front of a buzzing crowd. … [Read more...]
