Benfica - Sporting Lisbon, 25th August on 9:00 P.M.
The home team is currently in the 2nd position of the league, with 6 points won. In their debut, they won in a home match against Vitória Guimarães, by (3‑2). In the second round, they won in an away match against Boavista, by (0‑2). This is a team that, oddly enough, has had better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 9 wins and 6 draws in away matches; against 10 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses at their stadium. In their last match, for the UEFA Champions League, they got a home tie against PAOK by (1‑1). In the last 10 home matches Benfica has won 5, tied 1 and lost 4. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored at least one goal in each of the last 10 matches. In the last 6 home matches for all competitions there are 2 periods that stand out: they have scored 3 of their 8 goals between minutes (61'‑75'); they have conceded 5 of their 7 goals between minutes (76'‑90').
Benfica heads to this game with a 1-1 draw against PAOK, remaining at a disadvantage in the playoffs that give them access to the UEFA Champions League group stage. It is important to emphasize that the eagles are going through a great moment in the Portuguese championship, since they won the first two games against Vitória de Guimarães and Boavista. In this game at Estádio da Luz coach Rui Vitória should keep the team in 4-3-3 favoring ball possession and attacks through the aisles: Pizzi is responsible for creating and organizing the offensive process. In addition, this player is the great highlight of Benfica in the league with 4 goals scored. For this game the coach cannot count on Jonas, Castillo, Krovinovic and Ebuehi, players recovering from injury.
The away team is currently in the 3rd position of the league, with 6 points won. In their debut they won in an away match against Moreirense, by (1‑3). In the second round, they won in a home match against Vitória Setúbal, by (2‑1). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 8 wins and 7 losses in away matches, with 22 goals scored and 21 conceded; against 10 wins and 5 draws at their stadium, with 20 goals scored and 6 conceded. In the last 10 away matches Sporting CP has won 5 and lost 5. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 8 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 9 of the last 10 matches.
Sporting has also made a remarkable start to the championship, winning the first two games with very well achieved performances against Moreirense and Vitória de Setúbal. Now the challenge in this match is different, as it faces its biggest rival, Benfica. In this third round of the Portuguese championship, coach José Peseiro should keep the team in 4-2-3-1, benefiting the defensive organization and the counterattacks through the aisles. However, in some moments of the clash the green and white team should dominate ball possession. Nani and Bas Dost are Sporting's top scorers so far with 2 goals each. It seems that the away coach cannot count on the injured Viviano and Bruno César, and still has doubt in the Dutch Bas Dost.
Benfica has more quality on some levels compared to the opponent of this game, so the tendency is to dominate possession and hold the best opportunities to score. Unfortunately we need to take into account that Benfica has a very critical away game for Champions league qualification with PAOK FC on Wednesday and might rest some players. On the other hand, the lions will fight with their weapons, trying to add points, but without great success. By taking into account these factors a possible result can be a draw with low score.
The above description is a story of a classic betting tipter. BalanceYourBet is not one of them. BalanceYourBet is trying to provide to the player the information if the odds offered by betting sites are underestimated or overestimated. BalanceYourBet is trying to help every player to directly compare whether the tipsters' proposals are VALUE BET odds and help him to decide which match is best for betting. All the information is immediately displayed on the screen within a few seconds. The selection of results on a dark green background significantly increases the chance of success maximizing the profit that can be achieved.
How the BALANCEYOURBET works
For each match available from betting sites, BALANCEYOURBET is searching on his Database any information from older matches (such as final score, home goals, away goals, etc.), as well as data from the current league season (such as, for example, eg ranking, wins-defeats-draws, home goals, away goals, etc.). The above data are processed through appropriate algorithms to determine the VALUE bets for every match. Finally, the results are compared to the current odds of the betting sites and 4 cases are presented in the following legend and are briefly described below:
Dark Red Color
The betting odd resulting from BALANCEYOURBET analysis is over 10% higher than the betting site odd. In this case the betting site's odd is colored in Dark Red to discourage the player from choosing this result.
Light Red Color
The betting odd resulting from BALANCEYOURBET analysisis still greater thanthe betting site odd, but with a variation of less than 10%.In this case, the betting site's odd is colored in Light Red to inform the player that the choice of this result is underestimated.
Light Green Color
The betting odd resulting from BALANCEYOURBET analysisis lowerthan the betting site odd, but with a variation of less than 10%.In this case, the betting site's odd is colored in Light Green to inform the player that the choice of this result is overestimated.
Dark Green Color
The betting odd resulting from BALANCEYOURBET analysis is over 10% lower than the betting site odd. In this case the betting site's odd is colored in Dark Green to encourage the player to choose this result.
It is noted that in no case the return on green backgroundshould be considered as the most likely outcome.They simply indicate that the odds given by the betting company are high enough in relation to the probability of being confirmed and therefore it is worth the risk of betting (that's what we call VALUE BET).
So for the Benfica - Sporting Lisbon game the information thatwww.balanceyourbet.comis trying to give is that the betting odds offered forBenfica win and for Sporting Lisbon win are very low, while the odds for draw is particularly high.
Therefore, by combining the tipster andwww.balanceyourbet.com views forBenfica - Sporting Lisbonmatch we will risk with the draw offered in a betting odd around 3.25.
