Results from Wednesday Feb. 6 through Monday Feb. 11
Premier League – England
|Premier League - Betting Results - Matchday 26|
Visitors showed their strength on Saturday with a 4-2 record and two of the results were expected as Manchester United (-147) and Arsenal (-144) both won as road favorites.
Road underdogs to pull off surprises included Cardiff City (+396) and Burnley (+311) in wins over Southampton and Brighton & Hove respectively.
In other action, Watford (+148) blanked Everton 1-0 at home and Liverpool (-625) got on track after back-to-back draws with a 3-0 victory over Bournemouth as a heavy home favorite.
Eleven of the 14 teams in action got on the board with at least one goal and that helped the ‘over’ go 4-3.
Sunday's action watched a pair of title contenders show up in front of their fans as Tottenham (-131) and Manchester City (-181) captured wins as home favorites.
The Spurs stopped Leicester City 3-1 at Wembley Stadium and the Foxes had chances to knot the game at two goals but striker Jamie Vardy missed a penalty kick.
While the Spurs faced a little trouble, the Citizens absolutely blasted Chelsea from start to finish. Manchester City opened a 4-0 lead in the first 30 minutes and closed with out the Blues 6-0 after it was all said and done. Sergio Aguero paced City with a hattrick in the win.
With the victory, City sits in first place of the Premier League with 65 points based on goal differential (54-44) over Liverpool. Tottenham sits in third place, five behind the leader. The Spurs have two games remaining against the leaders, both on the road.
Monday's match between Newcastle United and Wolverhampton ended in a 1-1 draw (+249).
Bundesliga – Germany
|Bundesliga - Betting Results - Matchday 21|
Matchday 21 started off with a cracker as Bayer Leverkusen (-137) posted four first-half goals against Mainz 05 en route to easy 5-1 win as a home favorite.
The scoreboard operators kept working on Saturday as we saw 21 total goals scored in six games, which helped the ‘over’ go 4-2.
Helping that cause was a pair of 3-3 draws and one took place at Signal Iduna Park. Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund had a comfortable 3-0 lead at home, but TSG Hoffenheim closed the game with three unanswered goals in the final 15 minutes. The tie (+325) returned generous odds and certainly hurt their title chances.
While Dortmund drew at home, Bayern Munich (-425) rebounded with a 3-1 win over Schalke 04 at Allianz Arena. Bayern now trails Dortmund by five points and the pair will meet on April 6 from Munich.
Only one underdog captured a win in Matchday 21 and it was a juicy return as Hertha Berlin (+454) blanked Borussia Monchengladbach 3-0 on the road. It was the first home loss for Gladbach, who had won all nine its home games this season.
Sunday’s action was chalky and that’s been very common in the German league this season.
Werder Bremen (-156) captured a 4-0 win over FC Augsburg and Fortuna Dusseldorf (+115) also posted a clean sheet in its 3-0 win over Stuttgart as a home favorite.
La Liga – Spain
|La Liga - Betting Results - Matchday 23|
Matchday 23 started with a snoozer as Real Valladolid and Villarreal played to a scoreless draw (+230) on Friday. It was the 11th time this season that Villarreal earned one point and the club has gone winless in 10 consecutive La Liga matches.
Saturday’s action saw three points handed out in all four games and seven of the eight teams scored at least one goal.
Getafe (+102) and Espanyol (-144) captured home wins over Celta De Vigo and Rayo Vallecano respectively.
The marquee matchup of the week watched Real Madrid (+193) stun Atletico Madrid with a 3-1 road win at Wanda Metropolitano Stadium. It was the first league loss at home for Atletico while the victory for Real Madrid was its fifth straight league win.
Another underdog to surprise on Saturday included Huesca (+352), who blanked Girona 2-0 on the road.
Sunday’s card was less forgiving for winners, just one on the day as Leganes (+130) shutout Real Betis 3-0 at home.
All three of the other games ended in draws, which includes a 0-0 decision (+277) between Barcelona and Athletic Bilbao. Barcelona still sits in first place of the Spanish league with a six-point lead over Real Madrid and seven ahead of Atletico Madrid.
Of the other draws on Sunday, one worth noting was a 0-0 result (+250) between Valencia and Real Sociedad. The tie was the 13th of the season for Valenica (6-13-4), who sits in eighth place.
Deportivo Alaves (+110) blanked Levante 2-0 on Monday as a home favorite.
