3rd Bundesliga handball preview: HC Oppenweiler vs HSG Konstanz

handball bundesliga bet

The biggest challenge for the handball players of the HC Oppenweiler / Backnang is tomorrow 01 December 2018, when they meet at 20:00 local time in the Oppenweiler community hall the championship candidate number one, the 3rd Bundesliga, men handball league leader and ten times in succession victorious HSG Konstanz. Will the HC Oppenweiler / Backnang succeed in completing the lasts impressive series? It certainly will not be an easy task. But it is also certain that the Murrtaler will leave no stone unturned.

For weeks the HCOB handball players regularly scored more than 30 goals each match. That shows a good offensive power. Whether skipping this mark against the front runner succeed? Coach Matthias Heineke said: “If we manage to score more than 30 goals then that would definitely close to an important step in winning the game.” And he thinks it possible, “if we continue in the attack play fast and variable, as in the past weeks”. Whether it actually enough to win is another question. In the games against the TuS 04 Dansenberg and the Rhein-Neckar Löwen II jumped in spite of good yield in attack no points out and the coach knows, “that of course the HSG Konstanz has the quality for 30 and more goals”. So the key to win the match is quite inevitably in the defense, and here’s the question: how does the HCOB get its defenses under control ? After received this season twice 36 goals, an improvement in defense must be implemented. Coach Matthias Heineke has worked up the deficits. “In the game against Dansenberg, the 6-0 defense was weak, because our goalkeeper had little chance to excel. In the Rhein-Neckar Löwen II the defense was not as bad as the number of goals scored, in the match with the goalkeeper an important element did not work well. “Against the HSG Konstanz will needs a better cooperation of defending field players and goalkeepers. Unfavorable is that Thomas Fink has injured. He has a torn muscle and can, if things go badly, not play again until the new year. That’s why Stefan Koppmeier, the entrance from TV Großwallstadt, will be all the more demanded. A performance of him as a few weeks ago in the home game against Willstätt now against Konstanz – that’s it.

The handball players from visitor team HSG Konstanz were given the favorites position before the start of the season and there is no secret of the fact that they want to leave the third league in a shorter time in the direction of the 2nd handball Bundesliga, where they played from 2016 to 2018. “They are 100 percent right first,” says HCOB coach Matthias Heineke, who can well imagine, “that they will also stand until the end of the season. They are very in very good position comparing with others. This is the logical consequence of the individual quality combined with the much higher training scope. “The HSG handball players have excellent conditions on HSG Konstanz, enjoy widespread support from the City of Konstanz and have great continuity in many club functions. Best example is that Daniel Eblen has been working as a trainer since 2004. In this round he had to annoy only at the beginning of two defeats (in Fürstenfeldbruck and against Pfullingen), since his team wins continuously, most recently last Saturday at TSV Neuhausen / Filder.

From the HC Oppenweiler / Backnang backcourt Ruben Sigle promises full engagement: “We have to play at our limit. We will hardly allow ourselves technical mistakes, so we need full concentration. It is also clear that we have to go in the defense of a shovel. But we play at home and our support fans cheer us on. Fans from Konstanz will also be there, which gives them an exciting atmosphere. I believe that it can inspire us – and then let’s see what’s possible. “HCOB coach Matthias Heineke predicts” a game with many good attacking actions because we meet an opponent with a high level of gaming culture.

Prediction: any offer for Under 60 goals scored in the match with at least 1.80 odds will be a good value bet ticket, assuming that home team will not play as efficient as they play in the past with lower ranking teams. Ranking #1 for visitors who aim to go for 2nd Bundesliga handball league is too big challenge for the HCOB. Another value bet could be a bet ticket backing on the visitor team covering the Asian handicap -4.5 with odd at least 1.90.

FC Bayern Munich vs. Darussafaka – Basketball Euroleague

FC Bayern Munich will host the Darussafaka Istanbul in the round 6 of the basketball Euroleague 2018-2019 season. The match will start at 20:00 local time, 08 November 2018 in the Rudi-Sedlmayer hall from Munich, Germany.

Bayern is ranked #11 with 2 wins – 2 loses and Darussafaka is ranked #14 with 1 win – 3 loses from the all 16 Euroleague basketball teams. Seven days ago, in the latest matches, Bayern lost in Turkey against Fenerbahce only with 4 points (84-88) in a very close match while Darussafaka suffer a big lost at Baskonia with 56-82. Bayern played with 10 players with an average 27.4 years old and a medium tall height of 201 cm while Darussafaka played with 12 players with an average 26.9 years old and a medium tall high of 199.7 cm. The superstar Lo Maodo from Bayern score nothing in the whole match (when played 11:30 minutes).

Their last 2 meetings where in the last season Eurocup semifinal when Turkish team won the game one (20 March 2018) scored by Staton Kidd on a lucky buzzer beating triple, in Istanbul. The game two was in Munich where Darussafaka won 87-83 and almost half off all points were scored by Scottie Wilbekin (now is play for Maccabi Tel Aviv). Bayern and Darussafaka have never faced each other in any Euroleague match.

I think revenge is quite high for the German team and they will be thirsty for a big gap vitory.

The Pinnacle sports book has offer 1.279 odd for the moneyline Bayern victory and handicap line -8.5 @ 1.970  I would suggest to bet our free bet of 10$ on the alternative AH Bayern -10.0 @ 2.28.

For those who want to bet big, a good choice is to bet on Bayern @ 1.279 where Pinnacle allow a maximum 5370 $ for a profit of 1500 $ on a single bet ticket. If you want to bet more just re-bet after the sports book may adjust the odds.

Rhein-Neckar Löwen vs. Montpellier HB – handball Champions League

The professional German handball club Rhein-Neckar Löwen (founded in 2002) will host the French handball club Montpellier HB (founded in 1982) in the SAP Arena (Mannheim) on 07 November 2018 at 19:00 local time. From all 8 teams (group A) of the VELUX EHF Champions League, the Rhein-Neckar Löwen is #3 ranked with 4 wins and 2 losses and Montpellier HB is #7 with 1 draw and 5 losses

These two teams shows opposite results. Four days ago “the lions” won in Hungary against Veszprem with 29-28. In the same date 3 November 2018, Montpellier HB although it was a big favorite against IFK Kristianstad with 1.35 pregame odds for winning, end in a draw with 29-29 score and lost the 5 points half time advantage. Little by little the team slipped out of control of the game, the lead melted until it was 29:29 before the end. The fact that Melvyn Richardson, who until then, has been very strong, lost the chance of victory underscores the situation in which the team were more than desolate. The crazy thing about it: the team is pretty much the same as the formation that climbed the throne of the VELUX EHF Champions League about six months ago.

Richardson, the unparalleled one-on-one Jonas Truchanovicius and Valentin Porte, the towering Vincent Gerard, who can decide on a good day with his parades a game alone. They all continue to play for Montpellier HB. But they do not win anymore. At least in the Champions League. And the loss of playmaker Diego Simonet of course also hurts. Nevertheless, the French are currently giving up puzzles, especially since it is anything but round in the league. The only real hard game with CL final opponent HBC Nantes was lost with 28:31. Before the hot weeks with key matches in the domestic league and in the Champions League, the squad of Patrice Canayer is under tremendous pressure.

The situation at the Rhein-Neckar Löwen is completely different. After the victory in the Bundesliga at the Bergisch HC and the spectacular success on Saturday in Veszprém, the guys of Canayer colleague Nikolaj Jacobsen are in a great mood. Only three weeks ago it had felt very different, almost a bit like Montpellier. There was talk of a playful crisis, of bad form and lack of constancy. On top of that, there would be an almost perfect starting position for the second half of the group in the preliminary round for a win against Montpellier.

The Asian sports betting Pinnacle bookmaker has a good AH alternative line and I would recommend to wager our free bet of 10 EUR offer by us on the visitor team +5.0 @ 1.591 odd.

Good luck !

Schalke 04 vs. Galatasaray – the UEFA Champions League odds

FC Schalke 04 will host Galatasaray AŞ in the Round 4 of the UEFA Champions League, Group D, in a match disputed Tuesday 6 November 2018, starting at 21:00 CET on the Arena AufSchalke – Gelsenkirchen.

The Germans drew in Turkey, 0-0, against Galatasaray, in a game where FC Schalke 04 clearly dominated the match.

Now, on the home field, Schalke should impose, given that the fans will be active and will have an important factor in games like this one. With a possible success in this game, Schalke would make a big step towards qualifying in the finals, while a draw could complicate the situation in the group.

The two teams met five years ago in this competition, and then Galatasaray managed to win 3-2 in Germany after the Istanbul match ended. In the previous game played on home ground, Schalke draws against FC Porto with the score 1-1. The match officials are from Scotland and which is good for both sides.

FC Schalke 04 in ranked now #14 in Bundesliga while Galatasaray AŞ is ranked #2 in Turkey first league. In the UEFA Champions League – Group D stage the ranking before this match is:
#1 FC Porto with 7 points from 3 matches played
#2 FC Schalke with 5 points from 3 matches played
#3 Galatasaray AŞ with 4 points from 3 matches played
#4 FC Lokomotiv Moskva with 0 points from 3 matches played

I think the Germans will force into this game against of a team that is lover rated. The Pinnacle pregame odds offer is quite good for the single moneyline with 1.54 odd for the victory of Schalke which I recommend to bet.


ATP tennis game between Alex De Minaur vs. Liam Caruana

The last tennis game from the ATP Next Gen Finals Milan – Group B Stage held in London will bring face to face Alex De Minaur and Liam Caruana.

The Australian #31 ATP world ranking tennis player, Alex De Minaur (19 years old) comes to this tournament after a very good year tennis season. He managed to finish on the second place in two different ATP 2018 tournaments Few weeks ago he has had a good performance both in Shanghai Masters and Shenzen. At ATP World Tour Masters held in Paris lost in the first round to the former #12 ATP ranking Feliciano Lopez in a very close match in 3 sets (7-6 4-6 6-7).

The Italian #622 ATP world ranking tennis player, Liam Caruana (20years old) comes to this tournament after good results in Futures tournaments. In the lastest event Egypt F23 at Sharm El Sheikh, 2018.10.15 – 2018.10.21 he reached quarter final and won against French tennis player Gabriel Petit with 7-5 6-1. In the semifinal he walked out and not play. Although he has faced modest opponents in 2018 season the balance is 15 wins and 11 defeats.

I suggest to bet the +6.0 (or more) games handicap offer for Liam Caruana.

Atletico Madrid vs. Dortmund – the UEFA Champions League odds

In the last match (24 October 2018) Dortmund smashed Atletico Madrid with 4-0 in the UEFA Champions League competition. In my opinion , the odds for today match Atletico Madrid vs.. Dortmund does not reflect the good shape for the latest German team’s matches and the psychological advantage who reached 9 points from 9 for the last 3 matches in UCL … furthermore with 0 goals received. How the bookie offer odds higher than 2.00 for the visitor team or Draw ? Maybe there are something that we do not know or maybe is a sportbook trap.

Atletico Madrid will have 3 players which are questionable to play because of their muscle injuries: the Brazilian player Diego Costa, the Uruguayan player Diego Godin and the Spanish player Jorge Resurrección Merodio (aka Koke). Even they will play, they will not be 100% fit for their best performance.

The Pinnacle odd offer with 13 hours before the start time are

Anyone who does not have a Pinnacle account yet, could benefit for the 10 €/$ free cash bonus and bet on the Borussia Dortmund +0.5 @ 1.943 with no personal money risk.

Oostende vs Charleroi – the football match of the day

I choose a football game from Belgium first division where KV Oostende will meet Royal Charleroi SC. Both team are suffering especially the host team, but in the last meetings they score a lot of goals.

The home team KV Oostende is right now on the #11 ranking without any victory in the last 5 matches. The manager Adnan Custovic trained the team without any goals in the last 3 matches with 8 goals received.

The visitor team Royal Charleroi SC is on the #8 ranking with 4 victories in the last 6 matches. The “zebras” scored at least 1 goal in 4 games played in the last 5 away matches and scored more than 2.5 goals in the 4 from last 6 matches.

Pinnacle odds betting offer is quite good for Over 2.5 goals @ 1.980 but I am going for a safer offer and try to keep the free betting bonus high, and I choose Over 2.0 @ 1.440 with 2 units.
