Money ... money is to be won, won, won, if you follow your Humble Handicapper over to Spain to bet on Valencia vs. Sevilla. Let's look at the betting lines and make our soccer picks.

Money ... money is to be won, won, won, if you follow your Humble Handicapper over to Spain to bet on Valencia vs. Sevilla.

Cutting right to the chase, the bookies have this one down as a home win and I agree with the bookies. That’s 4/5 on a Valencia win, 5/2 on the draw and 7/2 on an away win.

Enough with the quick prediction…WHERE’S THE MONEY MIKE?

The home side has come out on top four out of the last five times these sides have faced off. And it’s completely honours even with two wins for Sevilla and two for Valencia, with the one upset to that form being a 2-1 Sevilla away victory back in February 2012. If you want to go against your Humble Handicapper than by all means do (and don’t be shy about letting me know on the SBR Forum, that you think you’re better qualified than I to pick winners).

If you decide to back a repeat of that score you can get betting odds of 14/1 with Stan James.

A Brave Man’s Bet

Go for goals in this game, my crystal ball tells me we will see plenty. Under 2.5 goals is offered up at 21/20 while Over 2.5 goals is offered up at 3/4. However, your humble Handicapper is going further out on a limb and is backing over 3 goals.

A Safe Man’s Bet

There have only been two clean sheets in the last five meetings between these two sides and both times it was Valencia that managed that feat.

Sevilla still manage to score aplenty of goals against Valencia when the mood takes them. They’ve clocked up eight in their last five encounters. Valencia have managed the same amount but they can boast scoring against Sevilla in each and every one of their last five meeting dating back to January 2012.But even better than that

Home is Where the Heart is

The bookies have the home side winning both halves at 15/8, the game being drawn on the 45 and Valencia's’ on the 90 at 15/4, and the game being in Sevilla's favour come the first half whistle and then Valencia's on full time at 7/1. You know what I’m betting on for my soccer picks… the home side to win both halves.

If you want to go against me, by all means have a wild bet on Sevilla winning both halves at xxx.
