Bayern Munich v Inter Milan Betting Preview 2010-05-22
While it’s still Monday, the 17th, in the mind of every football gambler is the final on Saturday, between Bayern and Inter Milan.
According to the bookmakers, Inter is the favorite here with odds varying from 2.10 to 2.35 at the moment. This means that if you bet right now $100 a winner would payout at $235.
Considering the shape of Inter this seems like quite good stakes, very possible as well.
Bayern Munich however is not to be underestimated, after all they eliminated Manchester United in a spectacular way and dominated over Lyon on the semi-final.
One of their best players this year is called Arjen Robben, who actually is the one responsible for the many important goals, and for their qualification to the final stage.
Can he do his magic on Saturday? The odds for Bayern are quite high around 3.25, and a $100 bet would pay the winner $325. A $225 profit in 90 minutes wouldn’t be bad at all.
Both teams have done really well this year, not only in this tournament but in their own leagues as well. The bad news for Bayern is that Ribery’s suspension after the red card is still valid and he will miss this game. Bayerns will be appealing the ban, but the decision will probably come out tomorrow or on Wednesday.
If in fact they lift the Ban on Ribery, my friends that 3.25 will go down very fast (3.55 in Betfair at the moment).
What am I expecting from this game?
Well it’s a final, so as every fan I am expecting a show. As a gambler I expect a logical outcome and profitable day. Both sides will go for the goal, the pace of the game should be quite fast.
Following the trend of a lot of goals this year in Champions League, it will not be illogical to look for that Over 2.5 Goals bet, odds at 2.56 and a $100 stake would payout the winner $256, which can also be combined with another bet like which team will win. Given that you get both right, you are sitting on anywhere from $500 to $800 profit in 90 minutes.
Personally I think both teams have equal chances to win this game, however, the difference would be Jose Mourinho a.k.a The Special One. Such a talented manager can really tip the scales in favor of his team.
Having in mind that he pissed off Barcelona’s fans he might be accepted as a hero on Bernabeu.
