Maribor vs Schalke 04 by Jamesington

My bet is BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE and at odds of 1.7 with BetVictor (amongst many others) a full stake is recommended for a decent return. I think this is the best bet of the night in the Wednesday matches of Champions League Week 6 and am confident of a win.


Apart from 6-0 (M) and 5-0 (S) thumpings from Chelsea, Maribor and Schalke have scored in all their matches. Crucially, for this bet, they have both conceded in every single Champions League group game they have played this year.


Schalke can still qualify with a win (if Chelsea beat Sporting Lisbon) and Maribor still have hopes of a spot in the Europa League so there is incentive for both sides to win the game and as such, an attacking end to end match is likely to occur. Interestingly every single match in the group (not including Chelsea games) has ended with both teams having found the net so there is certainly precedent for the desired outcome.


When the teams met earlier in the tournament, the match finished 1-1 and Maribor's last 3 home CL matches have all finished 1-1 so I can understand those who are tempted by the correct score bet. For me though the most important stat to take from the previous CL matches is that both teams have scored, not the exact scoreline.


A draw is no use for either team so we can expect both sides to go out and try to win this match, likely playing into our hands and getting BTTS to land.

simply ridiculous! How can you provide any tip so much in advance ?? So many things can happen in one week.....

Many times it is of value to "buy early" and get odds that are going (presumably) to drop.
On the other hand a g/g (BTTS) odd of 1,70 usually is going nowhere. How much lower could it go? And if it goes to 1,60, the added value is negligible.

Many recreational bettors like to pick accumulators and by providing picks early, at a reasonable price, it allows these people - in addition to the heavy investors - to prepare what they are going to do in time.

People should remember that gambling is meant to be fun, not just a source of income.

@nat - what do you suggest could happen in this coming week that would make this bet any less likely to happen?

am not talking about this particular bet, but any bet posted too much in advance, so much too risky. When I want to gamble, I don't bet on sports, just go to the casino instead....

@nat I, however, AM talking about this bet. You shouldn't criticise something then not actually be able to provide a reason. It's not like the bet depends on any particular player being fit so there is no reason not to post early.

ALL bets are a gamble, you just have to minimise the risk if you can. As I wrote, I think this is the best bet of the whole Wednesday card so don't consider it much of a gamble, hence the 10 point stake.

If you can not provide a genuine reason for this bet not being posted early, then your criticism was useless and invalid.

correct mate

who cares when the bet is placed, it's a btts bet which given the teams is very plausible, espacially maribor at home strong team schalke scoring like hell look at the game in stuttgart

Lovely, glad to hear from you Tim.

yes i am wth you james

I think its a good bet. Both teams are in need of victory. Schalke can score easily, and we all know that their defense is a weak point. If Maribor scored in Germany, surely they can score here. GL man.

Schalke win is also good bet, odds are even better
12/10/2014 - 18:03
i was planning to pick schalke to win because odds are supporting schalke and the need to win for the second place, but your arguments about BTTS are good, so ill try in bet365 pick Result/BothTeamsToScore = schalke & yes = 3.10

good luck!
12/10/2014 - 20:20
I think this is the most safe bet for this game :)

good luck!

Thanks very much for reading people - that only the second post I've had that many hits on.

Really hoping for a late Maribor goal now to make it a winner!!
