While straight bets should make up the meat and bones of your gambling portfolio, parleys are a fun way to spice up the odds and go for big money. What many do not know is that there are many types of Parleys. The type we will be covering today is called the Astropick. An Astropick is defined as a four-legged parley with games spreading over three or more days. Occasionally, the stars will align allowing for the perfect opportunity to employ this type of bet. Hints the nameâ€¦ Astropick
Real Madrid (-400) vs FC Shaktar
The first leg of this volumeâ€™s Astropick is Real Madrid. I believe Real Madrid can win this game for many reasons. Their huge fan base, massive amounts of money, several world class playersâ€¦ etc. But I especially think they will win because this is a Champions league game, and Real tend to show up for this tournament. Boasting 13 Champions League trophies already, I expect Real Madrid to cruise by their first group stage game.
Arsenal (-175) vs SK Rapid Vienna
I know I know…
â€œYou write about Arsenal every weekâ€ ~ my few readers
Get over itâ€¦ This week they are going up against SK Rapids Vienna In the Europa League. Arsenal are sitting at slight favorites in this one, and I like them there. After losing a close battle with Manchester City over the weekend, the Gunners will be looking to bounce back strong with a win. This combined with the fact the Mikel Arteta likes to field strong teams in tournaments, boost my confidence in their ability to take down this relatively unknown team. So, pull out the flint, and fire the cannons because the Arsenal is coming strong this week. Â
Crystal Palace (+160) vs FulhamÂ Â Â Â Â
Leg three in this volumes Astropick is Crystal Palace. Palace have been in good form recently winning their last two Premier League games in a row. On the other hand, Fulham have gotten off to an atrocious start. They are currently last place in the premier league with one point and have given up the second most goals (12) so far this season.Â I expect Fulhamâ€™s poor form to continue with a loss to Crystal Palace this weekend.
Browns -3 (-110) vs Bengals
The last leg in this volumeâ€™s Astropick is the Browns -3. I usually don’t like gambling on the Browns, but this week I have a good feeling about them. Ever since they whooped up on my Dallas Cowboys, the Browns have earned my respect. along with this, the Bengals have been playing terrible football only being able to muster one win so far. I believe their offensive line will be eaten up by Myles Garrett this weekend rendering Joe Burrow obsolete. Therefore, I think the Browns will easily cover the spread. Â
