This weekend’s Argentine betting preview

Written on Tuesday, feel free to notice that the first bet has already won 😉 Quite delightful


Gimnasia vs Independiente is two rubbish sides, and is a relegation 6-pointer without doubt. If I were to pick a bet I’d go Ind DNB.

Banfield are going well this year and Argentinos disappointed me against Quilmes but they’re the only unbeaten side in the league. Would say a draw.

Lanus should be way too good for All Boys who’ve lost 4 on the bounce and I love 2.6 as a price.

Velez are a class side as we know and I’d say slightly better than Olimpo who were knocked off the top last week. But they’ve got a good home record and it’s a tough place to go. Draw best value for me, as DNB Velez 1.72 isn’t quite fat enough.

Newells have been hopeless and are winless in plenty, 3 straight L’s but will see the visit of Arsenal as a chance for points. Arsenal nothing special in truth and this game’s tough to call. Neither have enough to call this a win, low-scoring draw.

Racing should beat Tigre as they are flying this season although last week was ONE HELL of a blip at Lanus. 1-0 up after 60′ to lose 4-1. Poor keeping though. Training ground fight this week too, price seems a touch light but I’m still sure they’ll do it. Stracqularsi the danger for Tigre.

Godoy Cruz, whilst inconsistent, are a Grade B side in this league. Huracan are a D. GC win.

Bet of the weekend. Don’t care if Quilmes have started picking up points, they don’t score (just 4 in 7) and River don’t concede (just 4 in 7). Lamela and Lanzini sparkle in attack and with Caruso replacing the injured Pavone, he scored two last week. 2.1 is too big, really can’t see logic behind this one. I’ll never tip another bet in my life if Quilmes win this, should be 10/1

SL are playing really well at the moment but this prace isn’t enough for me. Won’t be touching this game. Colon are an ok outfit and whilst ten places below San Lorenzo, they’d draw level on points with them if they won.

Boca Estudiantes. Mouth-watering. Having seen Boca’s pathetic form come to an end with a 1-0 win last weekend, they have a real challenge this sunday. Estudiantes are a top side, but have a long journey back from Colombia. I’m trying to ascertain if Braña will be back for them as he’d be a boost but I can’t pick this. No bet here.



In BOLD are the two best value bets of the weekend (now watch them lose)….
