    Barça hurt anyone today?

    I typically use them as a bank in La Liga play, and had them in a few favourite parlays this week. Only roughly ~1% on parlays. Was a little worried about Sociedad. So anyone have Barça screw them today?

    Or maybe Real, who now has allowed a Getafe goal to put it at 1-1.

    Don't add 1 team to a lot of parlays, also remember that these teams will always be overrated this season price wise. You will make more money predicting when they will draw/lose games than winning them.

    For the 1.05 to 1.30 price range teams like Man City and Man Utd have more value for the handicap than the Spanish teams IMO.

    No kidding, my EPL parlays are going to break me even this week with the losses due to La Liga, instead of the typical opposite. I didn't think Bolton would get completely steamrolled like that against ManU. City and United are damn good this year. Hate that City is in Bayern's group.

    I think Barca fvcked a lot of people! I'm glad they draw

    About Madrid, the -3 handicap was to much, I waited and took at HT and took -1.5, but in any case Madrid today looked awful!

    The defense is not in good shape!

    A guy who can predict when Barca can draw/lose must be a genius

    Real Madrid or Barça could beat nearly any team 5-0 any night if they really wanted to, even my Bayern boys. The only thing is, is how do you know if they 'feel like it', unless you're in the locker room and hear Kaká, Özil, Ronaldo, and co. say: 'hell with this, let's just win 1-0 today'. I definitely was pondering on the juicy +3 though.

    And I want to meet the guy that can call Real, Barça, and Porto draws or losses. I'll give them 50% of my winnings

    Yup, my 7 team 'lottery ticket' was Arsenal (why?), Man City, Man United, Barça, Real, Porto, and Bayern. Barça torched it. I typically hedge with smaller versions with those teams. Two had Barça, though. Ohh well, broke even with them. Rarely do I lose them, I mostly break even, but they hit a decent amount of time (more than a loss at least).

    Mine was:
    Aston Villa +1 (win)
    Chelsea (win)
    Cardiff (win)
    Southhampton (win)
    Barcelona (lost)
    Real-1 (win)

    After Villa 2-2 and southhamptons 3-2 - I though I had this one for sure..

    I dont think they ever say that in the locker But I am pretty sure that before/after Europa League games and Champions League games the big dogs in Europe are beatable and it is a smart move to handicap them then, or atleast I never tend to pound them heavy before/after games like that, it doesn't matter if they spend trillions on selection they will still be doubtfull in these games. Oly Man Utd looks solid enough not to have these kinda problems.

    Over for sure in my opinion, and also I think a poor Wolfsburg team further ravaged by transactions gets beaten at home to a Schalke club that has been in good form.

    Sociedad - X
    Legia W - X
    Rapid W - X
