<3.90> <3.05> <1.77>

this might be a friendly, but i see the 1.77 on offer for a celtic win, as outstanding value. it's hard to see how glenn loovens, the only good defender in this cardiff side, will be able to stop jan vennegoor of hesselink and giorgios samaras from scoring in this one. aiden mcgeady is also quite a handful, and will take some stopping on the flanks. in a tournament where every goal counts as a point, expect cardiff to come out attacking, which would allow celtic to kill them off.

- Eddy's predictions: $5 on celtic @ 1.77 = $8.85

<1.25> <4.75> <8.50>

home united go into this game on the back of 4 consecutive league victories, including wins over tough sides like the super reds and geylang united. they also managed to beat young lions 1-0, and we all know how difficult that can be sometimes. woodlands are on the back of some woeful form, getting smacked 3-1 and 4-1 by tampines and saffc respectively. before that, they could only hold sengkang punggol to a 0-0 draw. thus, i think the time has come for the underperforming rams to finally perform. thing is, it is difficult to think of woodlands being able to beat home united, but i think a +1.5 handicap is worth considering.

- Eddy's predictions: $5 on woodlands +1.5 @ 1.67 = $8.35
$5 on draw at half-time @ 2.35 = $11.75

<4.20> <3.30> <1.70>

this game is incredibly difficult to tip. geylang looked very impressive when they beat gombak united, while tampines rovers have been playing brilliant attacking football for quite a few games now. as such, tipping on the 1x2 market is really tricky. i would thus advise a tip on goalscorer. khairul amri has joined tampines rovers, but his name is not on the list of goalscorers open to singapore pools for betting. also, aliff shaffaein has been brilliant for the rovers, but he too, doesn't feature on the list of first and last goalscorers. for geylang, fazrul nawaz is also not on the list. as such, i think a punt on PLAYER NOT LISTED is worth a shot.

- Eddy's predictions: $5 on first goalscorer is player not listed @ 3.40 = $17.00
$5 on last goalscorer is player not listed @ 3.40 = $17.00

<2.30> <2.87> <2.90>

both sides haven't won for some time. balestier for a very long time. they haven't had 3 points since t-rex, brontosaurus and their bunch of friends laid claim to Earth. albirex have done slightly better, although they have not won since their sensational win over super reds on june 21st. strangely though, albirex have not conceded a goal in the league in their past two matches. their defeat to home utd before that was also not an embarrassing one, losing out 2-0. i fancy albirex to win this even match-up. this is mainly because, looking at the next fixtures for these two teams, albirex face tampines, where they will certainly not win, while balestier face young lions, where they should win. as such, my reasoning is that the winless streak will end for albirex tonight, while it will end for balestier next week. also, albirex didn't score in their past two, and i expect them to get goals today.

- Eddy's prediction: $5 on albirex @ 2.30 = $11.50
$5 on albirex to score 1st @ 1.90 = $9.50

<4.20> <3.30> <1.70>

jef utd chiba finally broke their losing streak when they held albirex niigata 2-2 away from home, which is kinda impressive. however, for a club looking doomed to relegation, that's probably that, and they're gonna lose today. i'm looking at gamba osaka winning this one, with lucas and bare leading the charge.

- Eddy's predictions: $5 on gamba osaka @ 1.70 = $8.50
