FA Cup back-to-back winners Arsenal will be aiming for back-to-back Community Shields but will have a tough job on their hands as they face a team that they have not beaten since 2011 in any competition. The Blues and Gunners teams last met in this fixture in 2005, with Jose Mourinho’s men running out 2-1 winners. Can the champions bring yet another haul of silverware back to Stamford Bridge and put down an early marker ahead of the new Premier League season?

Video Analysis of Lionel Messi’s Stunning Goal in Copa del Rey Final

ESPN Sports Science’s excellent analysis of Lionel Messi’s amazing goal in the 2015 Copa del Rey Final against Athletic Bilbao.  This is compulsive viewing for any football fan which tells you all about the quality of the Barcelona forward.

This kind of goal is another example of why Barcelona head into the Champions League Final as firm favourites.

FA Cup Odds – Value Bets from bet365 for the 2014/15 Season Finale

Ahh the magic of the FA Cup Final.  Well, perhaps it has lost some of its shine from the good old days, but this game still arguably one of the most prestigious of the English football calendar.

As you will no doubt be very well aware, the 2015 final will be contested by current holders Arsenal, who just scraped past Championship strugglers Reading 2-1 after extra time in the arsenalsemi-finals, and Aston Villa who denied Steven Gerrard a dream end to his aston-villaLiverpool career by knocking the reds out through a goal from their own captain, Fabian Delph.

Gunners Chasing Spurs’ FA Cup Record

Arsenal will be looking to match fierce rivals Tottenham Hotspur’s record of being the only team to retain the FA Cup twice.  The Gunners previously achieved this back in the heady days of 2003 and looking at the odds, it suggests to be the most likely outcome.  Arsenal are currently priced at 1/2 to win in 90 minutes, whereas underdogs Villa can be backed at 11/2 with bet365.

However should you be looking for some extra value in your betting, then you may wish to look towards the ever popular match result and both teams to score market, with Arsenal priced at 12/5 and Villa a huge 12/1 .

Bore Draw Money Back

All bet365 customers can take advantage of  their “Bore Draw Money Back” rule.  It’s is a great way to eliminate the glum feeling of a 0-0, as placing a pre-match bet on any of our Correct Score, Half-Time/Full-Time or Scorecast markets for the FA Cup Final will entitle you to a refund should the bet lose and the match finish 0-0.

Some of the most recent notable Bore Draw Money Back refunded matches include Hull v Man Utd & Granada v Atletico Madrid.  Check out our bet365 mobile reviews for Android and iPhone.

Best of luck with your selections if you choose to bet on the FA Cup Final.

Arsenal v Chelsea Betting Offer – Money Back if Any Defender Scores

Here’s an Arsenal v Chelsea betting offer worth looking at for Sunday’s match at the Emirates.  Bookmaker Titanbet is offering money back on selected markets if any defender scores a goal for new customers.  Not only that, but as a new customer you’ll also be able to take advantage of the Bet £25, Get £25 free offer.

Both of these top two teams possess defenders who pose a goal threat.  Our thanks to football stats site Turbo Scores for providing the current top-scoring defenders (below).

Screen Shot 2015-04-22 at 10.40.49

It’s the Blues’ defence who look more likely to score on Sunday, with the League’s top-scoring defender Ivanovic and John Terry netting 7 times between them already this season.  The Gunners have their own high-scoring defenders, too, in Koscielny and Bellerin who have contributed 5 of Arsenal’s 2014/15 goals.

With no less than FIFTEEN Premier League goals scored this season by the two teams’ defensive players, the chances of a free bet with your name on it look promising.

Sky Super 6

Sky Super 6 App

Sky Super 6 App: Predict 6 Matches in a Week & Win a £250,000 Jackpot

Here’s how to access the Sky Super 6 app available for all mobile devices, including Android, iOS (iPhone, iPad), Windows and Blackberry.  From the popular Soccer Saturday show on Sky Sports comes this completely free competition with a simple criteria: Predict 6 scores and you could win the £250,000 jackpot.  If the Sky Super 6 jackpot isn’t won, the highest scoring player picks up £5,000.

There are a number of options that you can use to enter the Sky Super 6 competition on your mobile.

Get the Super 6 Mobile App

You can get the Soccer Saturday Sky Super 6 app on your mobile by signing up without a Sky Bet account at https://super6.skysports.com.  This is the easiest way to register, and after that you can use the mobile web app and create a shortcut to Super 6 on your homepage.

Access Super 6 with a Sky Bet Account

If you’ve already got an account with Sky Bet, you can use your existing Sky Bet login details to gain access and play.  If you don’t already have one and need to open a new account you can create yours here.  This is a simple way to play if you also want to place bets as well as playing Super 6, as you then only need your Sky Bet User ID and PIN to log in and get predicting your scores.  Plus, by signing up with Sky Bet you also get to claim to the free bets on offer.

Get Super 6 with the BookieBoost App

Sky Super 6 app via BookieBoost

Super 6 in the BookieBoost app

If you’re an Android or iOS user and want to install an app on your device for using Super 6 we recommend that you download the BookieBoost app which does just that.

Better still, it gives you access to free bet offers across all bookies PLUS free bet tools including live scores and match previews.
You can get the official BookieBoost from these appropriate app stores:

Bet Calculator on Google PlayAvailable on the App Store

Once you have downloaded and installed BookieBoost, go to the ‘Special Offers’ area to access Super 6 (as pictured above).

There are yet more goodies available after you’ve registered to play Soccer Saturday Super 6, as you can then additionally use your Super 6 login to play Sky Sports Fantasy Football.

Think it’s impossible to win the Super 6 jackpot? Think again because it has been done before.

How the Super 6 scoring system works

Taking a look now at how to accumulate points on Super 6.  You can earn up to 5 points for each match; That’s two for each correct result or a max of five points for predicting the correct/exact score.  Using an example, say you select Tottenham Hotspur to win 2-0 and Spurs do win, but by a different margin (e.g. 1-0)  you are given 2 points.  However, if they win by your exact scoreline prediction of 2-0 then you collect the maximum five points for that match.  Simple.

The rules are clear cut and simple – if you can predict the correct scores for the six selected matches you have a chance to win £250,000. If you do that and nobody else does, the jackpot is all yours.  If nobody gets all six scores correct then the £5,000 guaranteed prize will go to the person with the highest score of the round.

It’s not always Premier League matches that are featured, either.  Super 6 app games can be chosen from any domestic leagues including the Scottish Premier League, or even international matches. Naturally, you have to make your predictions before the kick off of the first game of the round as advertised on the game site.

With so many people playing Soccer Saturday Super 6, sometimes a method of separating those who have the same number of points (to decide who gets the guaranteed prizes) is needed.  Enter the ‘Golden Goal’ tiebreaker, which is  the prediction for the time of first goal in any of the Super 6 fixtures. You’ll be asked to predict this when making your correct score predictions. To be clear, the Golden Goal isn’t used as part of the Jackpot Competition, though, as all winners share that prize.

Results

To check out how well you’ve done each week in this competition you can view the leaderboards. Plus, there’s the monthly and season league tables monthly and season league tables.

There are also other options if you want Super 6 as standard app from the Google Play Store or the App Store but these are not recommended.  The Android version is simply not as good as the mobile version and the Apple iOS version is exactly the same as the mobile web version.  It is better to create a shortcut to this on your home page as discussed above or simply use BookieBoost which which offers far more.

Compatibility

The Sky Super 6 app is responsive to mobile devices and therefore works on any smart phone or tablet. For Windows Mobile and Blackberry users, the goal is achieved via the mobile web app site which is the same as the Android and iOS apps as previously noted.  All users can access it securely via at https://super6.skysports.com.

Good luck with your predictions!

Goetze Brings Down the Curtain on a Great Show

It’s officially all over and as we all suspected the Germans snuck past Messi’s crew in an epic final.  In a game that was both skilful and brutal we were fortunate to experience a tense finale to what was a truly engaging World Cup tournament.  In a way, it’s probably best that it didn’t go to all the way to penalties, even though it would have prolonged the enjoyment.

From the shock of the title holders limping out early doors, to the hosts imploding in the semi-final, World Cup 2014 truly was full of intrigue from start to finish.

With the usual gazillions of fans glued to their screens all over the globe, it’s been reported that the use of football betting apps massively increased the amount bet on this World Cup – and it would have been a mixed bag for punters and bookies alike.  The Germans showed their class early on in the tournament and when they whipped the hosts in such emphatic style their odds hugely shortened.

Perhaps the defining moment in Sunday night’s finale was just after the moment Argentina earned themselves a free kick in the dying minutes.  With the supremely talented Mr Messi stepping up to take it, the pressure on the man must have been incredible.  And so it proved to be too much for the little magician that we expect so much from.  Let’s be honest, apart from 80 million or so Germans who wouldn’t have loved it if he had he managed to whip the ball into the back of the net?

Sadly, it wasn’t to be and let’s take nothing away from Mario Götze’s sublime winner.  When the young Bayern attacking midfielder came on a substitute he brought renewed energy to his tiring team mates and is now immortalised in the history of World Cup football.  What a future he has ahead of him

How did your bets fare?  With users of mobile apps like BookieBoost frantically taking advantage of free bets and price boosts from betting firms, the feeling is that those in the know had their money on the Germans from early on in the tournament.

‘But no team from outside South America has ever won a World Cup in South America’, we kept thinking.  In the end, such stats are just that and Lionel Messi despite flashes of brilliance just could not get past that rock solid wall of a German defence.  Bastian Schweinsteiger’s midfield heroics deserved nothing less.  At times he looked more like Rocky Balboa.

And news just in is that Mr. Scolari has fallen on his sword as Brazil look to rebuild after the hosts could only manage fourth.

Congratulations to the Germans and Argentinians – and now we wait four more years….damn.
