Serie C:
Novara -1 @+108
Albissola/Pistoiese over 2.5 @+125

Wales:
TNS -3 @+114, over 4.5 @+175

Concacaf(W) - if not mistaken, i think all 4 will go to the WC next summer. 
Canada +1.5 @-111, Canada/USA over 3 @-103 - US ladies have struggled to score vs. all the top teams the past year. less than a year ago these two played Friendlies over 3 days; 1-1 draw + 3-1 win for USA. and im guessing this is a spirited rivalry. i think Canaada can keep this close again, and at worst, score.... which means at least 1 will hit. 
Panama/Jamaica over 2.5 @-118, over 3.5 @+204 - friend mentioned all the 3rd place matches go 'over'.

well,  that was fun. but glad its done as 'unders' not my cup of tea, 11-6-4 for that african safari adventure; came away on the '+' side for a nice profit considering some of those lines were big.   made up for the indiv plays which bombed tho canada helped pull back even with that set of plays. 
a few more days and back to "normalcy"

got cut off:. 
Concacaf:
Canada/Dominica - got this in earlier. suprised to see a line on this one. even more suprised to see Canada needing to go thru the qualification stages; they gave all the WC reps h*ll last year. roster has players picking up paychecks in europe, stability in coach, and from what I have read it seems to be a stable foundation. played a few years ago in a qualifier and canada won 4-0, put up about 20 shots & 2/3 possession.  theyre probably about 2-3 levels higher than this Dominica side now. should have this large juiced HC covered by halftime and then coast.
Canada -3 @-147, over 4.5 @+120

DTP gl today    

its funny abt that Samba/Gaucho matchup. im passing. but been hearing ppl saying its 'just a Friendly'.  it makes me laugh.  these two can play on the top of a mountain in Nepal at 3AM in the morning on Christmas and theyd still be at each others throats

Friendly:
Belgium/Holland - a part of me thinks Holland shot their load last Saturday night beating the Germans at home. now have to travel to Brussels practically less than 3 days later? Waffles have owned the H2H's regardless.  a quick look at whom Martinez is expected to send out there makes this a decent play.
Belgium/Holland over 3 @-103

UEFA:
Ireland/Wales - Wales w/out Bale, which means bus-parking galore. which should make things a little interesting because Ireland are that type of country whom dont know what to do with the ball when its at their feet, they prefer to sit back and counter. im not even certain if this is even important but.... a loss and Irish get relegated; and since Ireland is at home in front of their loyal supporters they should push for a goal here. speaking of goals, there were 5 in the past meeting, but dont expect that to happen again. this looks like the type of match where it'd be more fun watching paint dry; prices on the under were ridiculous, even the 1.5's OPENED with 200+ juice attached i noticed. LOL.  but its gotten down within my 'range',  taking a shot at this cuz all it takes is a boneheaded mistake.
Ireland/Wales over 1.5 @-133

DTP   no worries. im not "glued" to this site anyways. ha. when i got time i post/read. but haveto admit its become frustrating... has gotten worse the past few weeks with the slowness and login problems.why do these ads keep popping up right smack in the middle of my screen?
elpr actually started writeps on the Serie A this wknd. might as well, not much gonna change thy mind before Friday for some of them.  will get a thread up soon.
Gambling i cant speak for Germans and dont want to discuss things I dont know too in depth; but i imagine what theyre going thru is similar to italy.  the downside of winning a WC is that ya end up setting that bar soo freaking high (intentionally or un-intentionally, it doesnt matter); expectations, and if the German press is anything like ours they must be having a field day over there as well too. if theres ever a time a country can/should evaluate & experiment, its now. BOTH will be just fine.  i've avoided reading anything on Azzuri or get involved in convos with friends for a while.  the sh*t getting ridiculous and Old Guard got its hooks into Mancini already. its a soap opera.
like Cody mentioned, hurry-up domestics. 

not sure what happened to my last msg but only the last line appeared. did take venezuela & the over for the same reasons as ecuador. 
kinda wish I took ANC plays for the full ride, but thats asking a tad too much for me.  nailed an under at 300+ with Seychelles/S. Africa?? visitors closed as a quadruple juice fav.  0-0??.   this continent will drive ya insane.  nice start for the day hitting a nice one with Kosovo/Slov kiddies blowing over the total in their 'elimination' match.  lost just 2 of the 11 unders thus far with a few 'pushes' in there.

logging in smoothly is dicey, but once here dont seem to have problems posting to an existing thread, but to create a new one is an adventure.  anyways, while this is still holding, quickly here.   

geez, been a while since Ive seen Germany hit 400s on the road as a dog.  a part of me wants to toss some on that just on "principle" alone.  but watched the 2nd half of that Dutch match the other day. common sense is telling me otherwise.  looks like a black eye for UEFA today as some of these Friendlies seem more appealing than the Nations League itself. .

UEFA U19:
Denmark/Italy over 2.5 @-110
Kosovo/Slovenia over 2.5 @-120

UEFA U21:
N. Ireland/Slovaika over 2.5 @-122
Norway/Azer over 3.5 @+118

Africa: going to stick mostly with the 'unders' took all of them. parlayed a few with the 2.5's to remove juice. heres the others

Madag/Equit under 2.5 + Morocco @+123
Gabon -.5 @-133 (half),
Ivory Coast -1 @+110

back later with rest of card. already started the wknd card in advance. GL to all

thought greeks played tmrw   there goes that fade chance.  
saudis unlucky not to win that one, in hindsight, should have done a 'runner' on that total with estonia match.  kinda felt it had a good chance of opening up, but 6 goals??     will eat the small loss fer the day.   biding the time till 'normalcy' returns nxt wknd. 

looks like another African adventure tmrw

DTP      pardon fer delay.  couldnt post.   i commented in ur thread.  

typical serie c, score within 5 minutes and then form semi-circle around goalie.  

adding:
Nations League 
Estonia/Hungary - i believe Hungary can score here, just not thrilled to pay juice on a roadie with a nation whom has nosedived the past 2 years. and havent even been able to beat perennial minnows. estonia have scored just once in past 5 matches and seem headed to be dropped to level 'D'.  from what i can gather, both squads motivated to avoid the drop so if theres an early goal this could open up. one thing which was mentioned is that estonia hasnt fared very well on those short rests either, which is common for minnows as bench depth is worse than bigger countries and theres been at least 2 goals in 9 of their past 10 in these spots.  worth a shot at these prices. 
Hungary to win @-125
Estonia/Hungary over 2 @+105, tossed a little on the over 2.5 @+175 for the heck of it.

gl today 

yeah. slim pickings this week,  i cant remember the last time a spain/england match drew such little attention/fanfare.  this whole thing has been a complete joke. 
over on this side its funny listening to the media/ppl needlessly freak out over the azzuri.  i swear DTP, the word "rebuild" is foreign in these parts. 
cant speak for germans but im certain theyre going thru same kinda stuff.  both will be just fine. in the meantime, the circus continues.
blurted out to a bunch of friends on sunday regarding the state of european soccer, "ya know, maybe its just that everyone else has gotten better".   they looked at me like i was some alien from Mars. 

hurry up domestic season please.

GL today duece     took a hard look at hungary too Duece, havent pulled the trigger.  yeah, estonia is nothing to write home about but Hungary has taken a serious nosedive the past few years ever since euros. when ya cant even beat andorra/luxem/belaurus on the road ... im not exactly thrilled to pay juice in this spot.  we'll see.

some interesting results this wknd.  down a little but then again, when dealing with africa its understandable.  unfortunate to not get the 'w' with serbia ystday. 

Serie C:
Gozzano/Lucchese over 2.5 @+114

Friendly:
Saudi/Iraq - back in Feb these two had a friendly and Iraq blew them away 4-1; prior to that --- in more meaningful matches - the Saudis won both game during group stages of WC Qualifers. Saudis have been trying to improve their status & past few years have really "upped" their level of opposition scheduling friendlies vs strong euro/conmebol squads. perhaps not winning, but its a 'blueprint' on how to improve if serious to get better. Saudis just played Brazil while Iraq had Argentina; i rate them a level higher and with the added 'revenge' angle from that blowout loss 6 mos ago in front of 60,000+ Iraqi's.  
Saudi to win @-120, Saudi -1 @+160(lower)
and since goals flow in 3 of the past 4 H2H's going to take a shot at the over 2.5 @+150

might have a play fer uefa if can confirm lineups

if theres a silver lining to ystdays results its that they were at reuced risk, so not too concerned abt that. but still....africa. 
ya know that morocco line, in two days it practically quadrupled since it opened in the 600s or whatever.  they won on a PK during injury time. LOL.    ehhh?

nothing much to add today.  heres a quote from Mancini (Italys coach) regarding the Nations League: " “Our aim is to be ready for Euro 2020. If we lose tomorrow, not much really changes. It’s not as if we’ll miss out on the Euros and never play again. It can happen to England, to Croatia, Germany. The Nations League was created just so countries wouldn’t underestimate friendly matches. I don’t see the need to make a drama out of it.”
our interpretation of it out here is one of a coach trying to save his job. 

not much time to stick around.
really liking the Serbs in this spot today, so plunked some more on that pick and threw a little xtra on the outrights. 

adding the over with Poland/Italy @+135

couldnt login earliertoday  as ive been attacked with ads. 
well if belgium can bang in 5 goals with just 12 million people then these two should be able to put in 25 with 3 billion.     thats my theory and im sticking with it. do not disturb a brilliant mind before his first cup of coffee please.

heading out getting all these in now: cant trust to be able to login the AM's. 

Africa: as with ystday, going to stick with 'unders' for the most part with smaller risk 
Uganda/Lesotho under 2 @-118
Eq. Guinea/Madag under 2 @+120
Mozam/Namibia under 2 @-103
Nigeria/Libya under 2 @-130
Congo/Zimbabwe under 2 @+105
Burkina/Botswana under 2 @+125
Tunisia/Niger + Senegal/Sudan under 2.5 @+336
S. Africa/Seychelles under 3 @+104

Morocco -2.5 @-112 - apparently HC is sending out his WC roster. this one could get ugly.

Friendly:
China/India over 3.5 @+125 - too big of a step up in class for the visitors. though Lippi is running that Chinese squad makes things uneasy. 

UEFA U19: a friend with close ties to our youth system tells me this is one of our strongest teams in years at this level. beat this opponent twice already in past 8 months (1-0 on road & 5-0 at home)
Italy/Finland over 3.5 @+106 

Sunday:
UEFA: been avoiding this like a bad cold. but cant pass this one up.
Romania/Serbia - I rate the Serbs better, coming off a WC experience and sitting in 1st place in this group after a huge win last Thurs vs Montenegro. realistically, a draw would be just fine for them here as no matter what happens they will remain at the top till November. Romania on a nice 7 match unbeaten streak, included is a 2-2 draw in Serbia. but they are missing a boatload of regulars here via injuries/suspension and a few are important missings.  i think this tilts the scales to the point where Serbia even just might have enough to steal the full 3 pts here. 
put a good chunk down with Serbia pick @-110, and toss a little on the outright @+165 too. 

Italy Serie C:
Pisa to win @+154, over 2.5 @+135
Arzachena/Juve U23 over 2.5 @+120
