Posted by

Another exciting football weekend is upon us with the German Bundesliga and the Spanish La Liga both start Friday, August 16, 2019. The action continues around the world with a ton of matchups on the schedule, so we bring you the most interesting football betting trends.

Winning Streaks

Manchester City is on a 15-game winning streak in the English Premier League. The Citizens welcome Tottenham as 1.35 favorites this Saturday, and they won five of their last six meetings with the Spurs. Likewise, the Citizens won 16 straight home contests in all competitions, while Tottenham dropped five of its previous six outings on the road.

Liverpool is another red-hot team in the Premier League, recording ten straight wins. The Reds visit Southampton as 1.47 favorites this Saturday, and they won their last four encounters with the Saints. Southampton is unbeaten in three straight games at home, but the Saints opened a new season with a terrible performance in a 3-0 loss at Burnley.

Elsewhere, Benfica visits Belenenses as a 1.20 fave on Saturday, looking for its 11th win in a row. Benfica couldn’t grab a victory in the previous two meetings with Belenenses on the road, but the Eagles won nine straight Primeira Liga contests away from home.

Losing Streaks

Saturday brings plenty of interesting games including the clash between Ferencvarosi and Kaposvar. Ferencvarosi is trying to retain the title in Hungary, and they are firm 1.25 home favorites here. On the other side, Kaposvar lost seven straight games in the OTP Bank Liga.

TPS Turku welcomes MyPa as 1.10 favorites on Sunday, and the visitors are riding a six-game losing streak while sitting bottom of the Finnish Ykkonen. All those six losses came by two or more goals, while TPS covered a one-goal spread in two of its last three outings at home.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals Streaks

Brazilian Serie B brings the clash between Guarani and Vila Nova with the odds on the over 2.5 goals at 2.80. Vila Nova’s last 13 games had fewer than three goals in the total. Likewise, nine of the previous ten H2H duels produced two or fewer goals in the total, while both last season’s encounters ended in a 1-1 draw.

The Russian Premier League continues with Round 6, and Rubin Kazan and Dinamo Moscow both still haven’t participated in a high-scoring affair with at least three goals in the total. It’s an identical case with Poli Iasi in Romania and Cartagines in Costa Rica.

On the other hand, all Silkeborg’s five games in the Danish Superliga saw three or more goals on the scoreboard. Also, Nordsjaelland, Brondby, and Randers have four contests with at least three goals in the total each.

Keep your eyes on the Swedish side Rynninge and the Finnish teams Ekenas and MuSa who are 14-4 in the over in their last 18 outings. Likewise, stay tuned for more football betting trends and picks for the upcoming weekend.
